And we’re back! Fresh off of their appearance at BayCon 2013: Triskadekaphobicon, Eric, Bryan and guest Kevin Sutorius delve into the history of science fiction, and key figures/works that pushed the genre forward.
I can remember a day when no one knew what the hell The Matrix was, but GODDAMN did we all really want to! There were cryptic ads on the radio in 1999 that ended with Morpheus’ line, “Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.” The television ads didn’t give too much away either, besides some short but sweet kung fu clips. So, there I was, a sixteen year old movie nerd, dying to know what kung fu, leather jackets, and Ted “Theodore” Logan all had to offer.
Some members of our fantastic Nerdonomy team, namely Sarah and Sean, came up with some brilliant ideas of celebrating some great actors and directors by turning their film career into a viewing marathon! To make matters even more heavenly, they found a way to add the actor/director’s name into the name of a month, which dictated when the marathon would happen. Sarah came up with Mel Brooks-uary (January) and Sean came up with Denzel March-ington (March). I recently came up with a marathon idea of my own and as the title spoils, I am going to start a tradition of James NovemBond!
This week, Eric and Bryan share more feedback, and wrap up October 2013 with the most ancient of symbols to be associated with Halloween and the like. Listen as they take different viewpoints on the subject of the paranormal, and as always, offer their unique perspectives.
