Podcast # 626 – Music of John Debney – 1703.05

This week Vartok returns with another musical podcast.  Here are some notes from Vartok about his latest podcast composition.

John Debney is an American composer and conductor who has risen to the A-List of Hollywood composers.  He grew up in a Disney family and has collaborated with Disney over his entire career that started in 1979.  John is a prolific composer with over 185 entries in the IMDB including scores for Bruce Almighty, SeaQuest 2032, Spy Kids 1 & 2, Bruce Almighty, The Scorpion King, The Passion of the Christ, Iron Man 2, and the recent adaptation of The Jungle Book.  He counts the works of Jerry Goldsmith and John Williams as having a strong influence on his compositions.  His unique ability to create memorable work across a variety of film and TV genres, as well as his reputation for being remarkably collaborative, have made him the first choice of top level producers and directors.


Big thanks to Vartok for another great show.  I will be back next week with Kenny for our latest Harry Potter cast.  Until next time, take care and enjoy your week.

Podcast # 625 – The Year 1991 – 1702.26

This week I take another trip back in time to talk about the year 1991 in films and TV shows – specifically genre stuff.  First, I talk briefly about the current movies and TV I have been watching and enjoying.  Lots of good stuff on these days and we also have the Oscars on tonight as well.  Then I move on to talking about fun stuff from the year 1991.  I focus on about 6 genre movies from that time that I enjoyed.  It wasn’t a huge year for Sci-Fi films but there are some gems in there.  I also talk a little bit about some of TV we were watching back then.  It’s another fun nostalgia driven show that was cool to do and think back on the fun stuff in the early 90’s.  Hope everyone enjoys this look back.

Next week Vartok will be here with a music cast on the music of John Debney.  Until then take care and enjoy your week!

Podcast # 621 – Trek Vault – 1701.29

This week I talk almost all about Trek and focus on a couple things.  The main show is my review and comments on “The Roddenberry Vault” 3-disc set.  I also bring everyone up to speed on the latest about “Star Trek: Discovery.”  I first talk a little about my recent work travel and cover some of my favorite recent TV and some movies I have seen (I’m especially enjoying the time travel new series called “Timeless”).  Then I move on to talk about the Vault.  It’s pretty cool to see new little clips and snippets from TOS after over 50 years since it aired.  The three disc set most is made up of 12 episodes they focus on and comments from various Trek experts and some who worked on the original series.  Some nice documentaries and the clips are great to see.  I do wish they had been a bit more extra footage show and feel the set is a little padded with the 12 episodes included.  While that was nice to have, most of us have these episodes already on various formats.  For a TOS fan this is a must buy.

I wrap up the podcast with a round up of the cast and news we know about the new “Discovery” series.  The show has been delayed once again to an unknown time (my guess is fall to late 2017).  I’m excited by the idea of new Trek and looking forward to learning more about the series.  They certainly have a very diverse cast selected.  That’s about it for this week.  Next week Rick Moyer will be here to cover the TNG episode called “The Pegasus.”  Until next time take care and be careful out there.
