The all-new, all-different… actually it’s the same. The Professor from Rhymes With Geek sits in this podcast as we talk news, and review Justice League: Throne of Atlantis and Marvel’s Star Wars #1. See, nothing new here. Listen in!
Here’s the second half – featuring issues #62 and 63. Scott and Shag make moon-eyes at pictures of Shira, describe what their “dream date with Shira” would be like, and basically make you wonder which one of them has the bigger creepy Shira Brie shrine in their back shed. Brought to you by RICH POWERS!
This month, the Freaks are joined by The Irredeemable Shag for their coverage of Marvel Star Wars #60-63. This episode was sooo long it had to be broken into TWO HUGE HALVES! Why so long, you ask? Well, it seems Shag and Scott (two grown men, mind you) love Shira Brie like an emo teen girl loves Justin Bieber.
Listen to them babble on endlessly about their girlfriend Shira Brie. What is her favorite color? Do you think she would like Scott’s new haircut? Shag has never washed his eyes since the first time he saw her in the comics! Honestly, these are “adult”, married men- I don’t know about Shag, but Scott even has kids. How healthy is it for them to have hot pants for a comic book character?
In this SPECIAL, EXCLUSIVE 3-HOUR EPISODE, The Freaks turn their focus on one of their favorite Marvel Star Wars comics — “Plif”!
Issue #55 introduces us to the Hoojibs and the awesome creative direction that the comics took. Joining the Freaks are Joshua Lapin-Bertone, who has been known to sling a mean Marvel Star Wars podcast himself, and The Irredeemable Shag, a man who loves Hoojibs so much that it is probably illegal. Basically, we are pushing the envelope of geekdom here. We’re talking Super-Nerds, Star Wars, comic books, tangents, and the epic kiddie record adaptation of the comic – “Planet Of The Hoojibs”! What? You want more?! Well, wait until the end when you get to find out which guest’s HOUSE CATCHES ON FIRE! Seriously, you can hear the smoke alarm…. THAT’S HOW “HOT” THIS SHOW IS!
When Chris has had a hard day at work, or his girlfriend has dumped him and hooked up with that stupid drummer or his rent is late and his dog died- he likes to share his pain. He does this by subjecting himself to horrible media and then bitching about it. It doesn’t really make Chris feel any better, but Chris has heard that it’s pretty entertaining to other people. Would you like to listen? Good, because here it is. This time Chris delves into the horrifyingly X RATED (and ECCCCH! RATED) world of fan fiction. Seriously, this stuff is not for everyone and this episode gets pretty ugly. Chris reads some of this stuff dramatically and plays inappropriate music and it’s truly WRONG. Seriously, keep the kiddies or anyone who respects, loves or employs you MILES out of earshot for this little gem. Also, if you’re TRULY adventurous and have a stomach of steel, you can read all of these litle “erotic epics ” HERE but remember – YOU’VE BEEN WARNED!
In this MASSIVE episode, the freaks are joined by Josh Baker and Michael Bailey as they talk about all things Indy! All four movies, video games, comics, music, toys, books it’s all crammed in here! This podcast simulates the Indiana Jones experience so well that you will swear you are being dragged on your belly behind a speeding truck!
This episode is a rerun that originally aired August 25th, 2008.
Episode 3 – Star Wars: Episode VII – A “What if…?” Discussion
In this episode, the Freaks speculate on Star Wars: Episode VII !!
COULD there be one? SHOULD there be one? We discuss how we might make it. What would be the plot? What characters would we use or not use? What era would we set it in? What we’d LOVE to see!! What we’d HATE to see!!
NOTE: This episode was recorded LONG BEFORE Scott’s head-first dive into the Star Wars Expanded Universe. In fact, this discussion is what inspired him to do so!! Enjoy!!
Join The Freaks, Chris Honeywell and Scott H. Gardner, along with their very Special Guest, Ken Morgan of the Too Old To Grow Up and Legion of Dudes podcasts, for this chilling dissection of the new Star Wars horror novel — Death Troopers!! Their biting commentary on this terrifying tale of zombie stormtroopers is sure to gnaw at you for many nights to come!! Mwwwwaahahahahahahaha!!
This month, The Freaks review Episode 9 of the CGI Clone Wars, answer some mail, and play a few phone calls. Then it’s on to Marvel Comics’ Star Wars series for issues 27 through 29, culminating in a high point in the series when Valence the cyborg meets DARTH VADER! All in all, a great way to waste 90 minutes (especially if you’re at work)!
