Still recovering from some technical difficulties, but we're up & howling.  Here's what I promised I'd link to:

  1. Screenshots of Marvel: Ultimate Alliance
  2. Whedonesque article that mentions Wonder Woman
  3. Watch the first three minutes of The Covenant

The following links are the dvds that I mentioned in the podcast as coming out this week and next.  I'm an Amazon Associate now, so if you're interested in any of the following titles, buying them from one of these links helps me out (a tiny, tiny bit, but every little bit helps!). Also, if you're not interested in any of these, using the search bar on the left of the page to find stuff you do want helps me out too. 

Either way, enjoy!

Hurdy gur,

GGL Unplugged #1: Snakes on a Plane

This is an unrehearsed, unplugged review of the movie Snakes on a Plane.  For this outing, I brought along my lovely co-host Heather and we had a lot of fun. I hope you'll have as much fun listening.  Let me know what you think!

Episode of the podcast "Slice of Scifi" with interview of SoaP snake wrangler, Jules Sylvester

If you have any feedback, leave a comment here or call the brand-spankin-new voicemail line at 206-222-HOWL (206-222-4695).  Hope you enjoy this little experiment!

We're up and running with a new voicemail line!  What does this mean for you? 

  1. I'll now be able to use voicemail comments directly in the podcast.  So all you folks who want to hear your voices on the show, just drop me a line!
  2. A new, easier to remember phone number!

The new line is +1-206-222-4695, that's 206-222-HOWL.  So give me a howl-out, and I'll try my best to get you in the next show.

Hurdy gur!

Back in episode zero I said that I'd put up a link to the Iron Man movie poster when it became available.  Well, has come through with the top-secret, first prototype image from the new film.  This will probably not be the final look for the armor, but it gives an interesting glimpse of what's to come!

I'd planned to have a new episode out this weekend at the latest (see last blog entry) but due to some truly bizarre and fairly life-changing events this weekend I wound up with Sunday night being my only free time.  And Jonathan Coulton was playing tonight at Jammin' Java, right up the street from my house.

So it came down to a choice between making a half-assed version of Grailwolf's Geek Life or seeing a live performance by the man who wrote Code Monkey.

No contest.

Frankly, if I'd put out an episode this weekend it would just have been an audio version of my apologizing for not getting a real episode up, so I think it's better to just charge ahead and get episode two up this week.  Besides, now I'll be able to review Jonathan's show and I got permission to play a song.  Sweetness! :D

Hurdy gur,

As I mentioned in the last episode, I had planned to have a new show up on Tuesday.  Alas, the gods of technology are fickle, and they seem to really like screwing with anything that's free.  Yes, my Audacity crapped out on me.  I was able to afford a more robust product, but there's a learning curve involved so I'm expecting to get the next show out either tonight or Saturday. 

Thanks for sticking with me.  A wise man once told me that it takes about five shows to work out all the kinks, so we're almost half-way there. :)

Hurdy gur,
