Podcast # 563 – The Star Wars Stacks – 1511.22

This week I’m sharing with you one of the podcasts some of my friends do called “The Star Wars Stacks.”  Each month they get together and talk about & review a new “Star Wars” book.  They also release shows in between the book coverage talking about the latest SW news, trailers and so on.  Chris, Jen, and Joe do a great job and I asked if I could share one of their earlier casts with all of you on one of my favorite “Star Wars” books of all time:  “Heir to the Empire” by Timothy Zahn.  They released this podcast back in April of 2014 and their show notes are HERE.  Make sure to check them out and subscribe to their podcast and their Facebook page HERE too.  Thanks again to them for letting me share this show with all of you.  Make sure to subscribe!

Next week I’ll be back with a new TSF cast.  In the meantime, also check out my recent mega-vidcast on Austin Comic Con 2015 HERE and also take a look at my Patreon support page HERE as well to help support the podcast.  Happy Thanks giving to all my friends in the US and take care until next time.

Vidcast # 562 – Austin Comic Con 2015 – 1511.15

Well, here is the BIG, monster Big Gulp size vidcast report on Austin Comic Con 2015!  Filled with a ton of pics, videos, music and one tired looking geek!  Yeah, spent the last couple of days putting this baby together – but it was worth it.  I always learn new stuff doing these video casts.  Of course, I had another fantastic time down in Austin with all my friends from the Anomaly Podcast and their friends, and their friends of friends and their kids, and their – well, you get the idea.  It was one big mega-group of geeks having fun!  Big thanks to all the shared video and pics everyone took.  Again, thanks for making me feel so welcome at home folks.  I think that’s about it.  Please show this video around, join Vimeo so you can comment on it, like it, etc.  Also, if you enjoy this please consider supporting the Podcast over at Patreon HERE.  So, enjoy the vidcast below and talk to y’all again real soon.

Podcast # 561 – Mini-Vidcast – 1511.08

Well, this week I was hoping to have the big vidcast report about all the fun at Austin Comic Con 2015, but instead I’m giving you a little teaser for it instead (see show below).  Lots of travel in the last couple weeks and I just don’t have enough time to get the full show up for today (but next weekend for sure).  I briefly comment about the announced new Trek series for 2017 and a couple other items as well.  Make sure to stay until the end of this mini vidcast as that’s where you will get a special teaser for the Comic Con report – coming on Nov. 15, 2015.  Until next week, take care.

Podcast # 560 – Halloween Anomaly – 1510.25

A special show this week to celebrate Halloween.  I got together with my good friends Jen & Angela over Skype to talk about some of our favorite Halloween memories and stories from past holidays.  We discuss some of our favorite and scariest movies that we both enjoy and those that make us freak out too!  The ladies and I also talk about our first costumes when we were kids and dressing up for Halloween and that conversation continues as we talk about our love for cosplaying and next weekend’s annual Austin Comic Con event!  This was a lot of fun to record and also I want to thank Vartok for the fun and scary intro he did for the show.  This show will also be posted up on the Anomaly Podcast too in a slightly different edition.  Hope you enjoy both shows!

There won’t be a podcast next weekend as I will be having fun down in Austin with my friends.  But in about two weeks there will be a big vidcast showing all the fun and costuming from Austin Comic Con.  So, until then enjoy your week and take care.  Also, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

Podcast # 559 – “The Avengers” – 1510.18

This week guest host Dave covers the 1960’s cool, British TV series called “The Avengers.”  He talks about the show, the cast and some of the cool stuff that went on in this spy TV series (no Hulk on this Avengers team).  Dave does a great job as always and I hope you all enjoy the show (thanks Dave).  Here’s one of the opening credit sequences:

Podcast # 558 – Best Trek Crew – 1510.11

This week we have a little something different for you.  Chris and I got on Skype the other night and talked about who we would pick for our best “Star Trek” crew.  I got this idea from a fairly recent episode of the “Geek History Lesson” podcast with Jason & Ashley (which is a cool show you should check out too).  So Chris and I picked characters from all the various Trek series to make up the different positions of our crew.  These are just some of our picks off the top of our heads somewhat – just for fun.  Hope you enjoy hearing us discuss the pros and cons of our choices.  Next week should be a guest spot here on the show.  Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.

Podcast # 557 – Indiana Jones Vidcast – 1510.04

This week I tackle the big & fun subject of Indiana Jones.  I’ve been a huge fan of the character since I saw the first film back in 1981 in the theater.  I’ve covered the main films before at these links (Raiders, Temple of Doom, and The Last Crusade) on the audio podcast but I wanted to do a vidcast covering them too.  I talk about “The Young Indian Jones Chronicles” as well as all four films and some background on the Indy character.  Hope you enjoy the vidcast which you can find on Vimeo HERE or watch it down below.

Next week I’ll be back with Chris as we pick the ‘Best Trek Crew’ and discuss our picks for the crew we would want to serve with and have with us in deep space.  Until next time take care and enjoy the week ahead.


Podcast # 556 – Classic SF Movie Music– 1509.27

This week our good friend Mark is back with a little different type of classic SF show.  This time Mark talks about and shares with us some classic, Sci-Fi music from the 1950’s.  Here are some words from Mark himself about his guest spot for this week.

Hello Everybody!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with some music from the Golden Age of Science Fiction.  Today I’m going to look at classic science fiction movie  themes.  Those of us of a certain age will remembering hearing this music while watching those classic science fiction movies.  I hope you enjoy it!  Everyone take care.  
Until next time…
This is M-5 signing off.
Big thanks to Mark for this cool guest show.  I’ll be back next weekend with my special Indiana Jones vidcast.  Until then take care and enjoy your week ahead.
