Podcast # 775 – Grab Bag of Thoughts – 2006.07

This week’s podcast is a bit different. With all that is going on in the world I wanted to address it in some way. I begin the show talking about how the comic industry is changing and also about the usual comments on what I’m watching lately. Then I move on to a more serious topic.

“Star Trek” taught me much over the years. And it certainly stressed that the color of your skin or how you look has nothing to do with how you should be treated and so on. The recent unrest and protests due to the death of George Floyd has made the words and hope of “Star Trek” even more meaningful. I play a couple of audio clips to illustrate this and comment as best I can about how I hope we can try to do better. I trust my audience will take this the way it’s intended and I’m certain the Trek fans will certainly understand.

Next week we should have a more regular show. Take care of yourselves and others until next time. Talk to you again soon.

Vidcast # 774 – Summer & Fall Movies – 2005.24

This week I do a slightly different version of my annual look at the upcoming summer movies which now will have some slipping into fall as well. I look at about 5-6 movies, talk about them and play the trailers too. I also review a couple recent collectibles I have gotten as well. It’s a fun show and it was cool to do a vidcast again after quite a break from those. Hope you all enjoy it.

Next week will probably be a guest cast or maybe even a repeat show. Until next time take care and stay safe and healthy.

Podcast # 773 – “The 27th Day” – 2005.17

This week Mark Daniels is back with another SF classic film. Here are some words from the man himself on his latest guest cast.

Hello Everybody!

I hope you all are safe and healthy!!! This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with another classic science fiction movie. It’s “The 27th Day”, from 1957.  It stars Gene Barry, Valerie French and George Voskovec.  It’s the story of five people who are taken aboard a flying saucer and given capsules that could kill all human life on the planet.  Sounds like a good start!  I hope you all enjoy it! I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie…Until then…Everyone take care and stay healthy!!!

This is M-5 signing off…  

Thanks Mark for another cool movie review. We also have Vartok this week with a look at some music from Brent Spiner. Thanks for that too!

Next weekend I’m planning to do a vidcast covering what movies we are getting later this year. Until then, take care and stay safe!

Podcast # 772 – Moms in Sci-Fi & Fantasy – 2005.10

Today for Mother’s Day I wanted to do a tribute show for all the moms out there showcasing great moms in Sci-Fi and Fantasy. I select about 6-7 moms and talk about them on the show. I also talk about some recent new times for the ‘Rico Cave’ and other things I’ve been up to during the continued quarantine situation most of us are in. Hope you enjoy the podcast.

Next week should be a guest cast. Until then, take care and stay safe out there.

Podcast # 771 – “Rick and Morty” – 2005.03

This week I take a look at the hilarious TV show, “Rick and Morty.” Of course, I first talk about what I’ve been doing to stay occupied given the still current lock down situation. Still building my Megabloks Enterprise and other things. Lots of fun!

“Rick & Morty” is a great show and I’ve enjoyed it for years. It’s fairly adult and raunchy at times but very, very funny too. Mad scientist Rick and his grandson Morty going on a ton of crazy adventures with mainly a Sci-Fi type of bent to them. I plays some clips and give some background on the series. Hope this intrigues you if you’ve never watched it.

Next week will probably be a guest cast. So, until next time take care and stay safe.

Podcast # 770 – Patreon Chat – 2004.26

Like I did a few months ago, this week is a fun Skype chat with some of the TSF Patreon supporters. We talked about how each of us is handling in our own geeky way being on lock down for weeks due to the virus situation. I was joined this time by Amber, Quinn, Doug, Rick Peete & Rick Moyer. We talk a little about “Star Trek: Picard” too so there are some slight spoilers for that series. It was a good chat and I really enjoyed connecting with everyone and learning how things are going where they live.

Next week I’m planning to talk “Rick & Morty” – which I love. Until next time, take care and stay safe!

Podcast # 769 – Live Action Anime Films – 2004.19

This week I talk some about a couple recent live action anime films. I first talk about what I’ve been watching and doing during this period of semi-isolation. I hope everyone listening is staying healthy and safe too.

The main topic this week is a look at the “Ghost in the Shell” live action film from 2017 and also the “Alita: Battle Angel” film from 2019. I enjoyed both these movies and I give some background about their manga roots and other previous animated films too.

I wrap up the podcast with a music segment from Vartok featuring some music from “Stargate: Atlantis.” I hope enjoyed this week’s podcast. Next week will most like be a Skype chat with TSF PATREON supporters. Until next time, stay safe and well my friends.

Podcast # 768 – Music of Barry Gray – 2004.12

Guest host Mark is back this week with a look at the music of Barry Gray. Here are some words from the man himself on his latest show.

Happy Easter Everyone!
I hope you are all doing well!
This is Mark Daniels from the Great Pacific Northwest.  I’m back this week with a podcast on musician and composer Barry Gray.  If you have seen any of the Gerry Anderson’s Supermarionation or live action shows, you’ve heard his music.  It’s a fun trip down memory lane.  I hope you all enjoy it!  
I’ll be back soon with another classic science fiction movie.
Until then…
Everyone take care and stay healthy!

Big thanks to Mark for this fun show. I’ll be back next week with my show on some anime like “Alita” and “Ghost in the Shell.” Until then, take care and stay safe all!
