Episode 287 – September Struggles While Disney+ Hoodwinks

October 1st, 2020


On The Road Episode! Because you have asked for it, Seanorama is on the road. And to prove how dynamic the show can be in this format, two incidents happen during the Podcast at (8:44) and (13:36).

We provide a Manitoba Podcast Festival update (this was recorded between Day one and Day Two of the Festival) (1:04), when my Manitoba accent kicks in (3:48), and the device I am using at home to record podcasts: the Behringer 302USB (5:20).

What are your September struggles through COVID and back to school? Seanorama covers his own (7:12).

The release of Mulan on Video On Demand with Disney + gets Seanorama riled up about American Regionalism hoodwinking people on the actual price of the rental. (17:52)

Episode 286 – Take It Off, Threatin’ing Kiss

September 28th, 2020

Today’s episode was recorded from Silver Moon Salon.

(1:00). Because you have asked for it, we provide updates on FastFret’s cat Wynston’s surgery and his recovery.

(5:01) Did you know you can play with a member of Kiss and post those videos online? But can you? Should you? During a recent rabbit hole on YouTube, Phil Proietti came on our radar and we try to analyze who this guy is. Is he really playing with members of Kiss or is this some kind of bamboozle to snag views on his channel? We are asking you the listener to provide some input on this guy, who he is and what level of connection to Kiss that he actually is. Or even better, we’d love to talk to the guy to find out. Is he legit because we really don’t want to be Jared Threatin’d.

(21:20) We watch Kuarantine’s No, No, No, an all-star cover of a Kiss song featuring members of the Luke Bryan band, Klassic ’78, Trixter and Winnipeg’s own Chris Jericho. Be warned, the worst ever Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons imitations may happen. How does it compare to the original and how much better does it chart compared to Kiss? And how has this cover affected Jericho’s relationship with the Kiss duo?

(34:00) We talk 80’s Kiss, Kiss’s underrated guitarist Bruce Kulick, revolving around the new Kiss book Take It Off: Kiss Truly Unmasked. We discuss the book’s Winnipeg connection with Brent Fitz, THE Winnipeg Kiss Convention (43:00) and meeting Bruce Kulick.

(50:49) Do you have car insurance but haven’t driven your car since COVID started? Seanorama shares his own story with that.

Episode 285 – Roundtable Versus Round 2, with the Reel Debaters

September 21st, 2020

The Reel Debaters are back. Brian K Vaughan wrote Roundtable, what many considered a perfect screenplay. Which current Knights and Dames of the realm will be cast in this modern retelling of the Knights of the Roundtable? In Part Two of the roundtable Versus game, The Debaters and the SeanGeek crew cast the current Knights and Dames in our version of the film.

Based on the current Knights and Dames of the Realm, we cast the film for the new Knights (and Dames) of the Roundtable. Who do we cast as Merlin? (0:57) What About Morgana Le Fey (4:21)? Which musicians make the cut for the top role of Knight Commander (9:36)? Which actor makes it as Knight Commander (14:26)? Which makes it in the role of Dame Commander (22:18)? Who will be Commander in our film (33:48)? Who will be the Honorary Knight (41:54)

At (43:57) we recap all of our choices.

Through it all we get lost in the ranking and titles of the British Order. Yes, despite all of the research done, we still don’t understand a thing about it… Have fun getting more confused with us.

And we do way too much phrasing.

Episode 278 - Auto Wrecking the Creatives, from McFarlane to Blizzard

August 10th, 2020

(2:04) The boys discuss trips out of the house during COVID, customer realities in this new setting, retail environments, harassment, and people travelling during the pandemic.

(12:13) What is happening in schools and what that means to those with kids.

(15:05) Major headlines with Blizzard Entertainment launches a whole conversation on wage disparity. What happened with the company and how does the situation there reflect what is happening in society? Investors, stock holders, and upper management… what do they bring and take away from the table, and what is their impact has on morale, wages, and work ethic. And what does this have to do with Auto-Wreckers? (28:03) As technology improves, should a company remain loyal to their employees? (31:17) When employees are forced out, what steps will a company take, or should they take?

(32:12) Todd McFarlane was a founder of Image Comics, an artist, writer, inker, letterer, and toy maker. Possibly the most famous Comic in the last several decades changed the face of the comic industry when he encouraged a mass walkout on Marvel Comics. Was he a rebel, or was he rebellious? Did he change the industry for the better or the worse? This is a lesson of corporate greed, stifled artistic vision, and ties into the Blizzard story.

(1:00:00) And as it comes up often, we had a little chat about FastFret finally getting 7 Days to Die for the PC.

We call out Michael Petrow from Reel Debaters during the Blizzard talk.

Episode 277 – Where does the Cat LAN’d a Comic Shop

August 3rd, 2020

Everyone loves cats: Did you tune in last week? What happened to the stray cat FastFret’s found?

Kevin Smith’s Comic Book Men: Having finished the TV series, the boys discuss the show and Comic Factory IV; how comic book shops are the Cheers for the Geek crowd; what is it about the show he loves; why Seanorama never opened his own shop; and what separates Comic Book Shops.

What Happened to LAN Rooms: The boys discuss LAN Rooms and Dungeons and Dragons, what separates them and what similarities there are between them; the discussion ropes in VR rooms, video game rooms, the time Seanorama took dad to one; and what happens now, post COVID to tabletop and Virtual Tabletops; what is the next evolution of both of them, and is there a merging between the two.

Movie Theatres and the Future of Movie Releases: Will New Release go straight to Video on Demand? Should they? COVID has pushed the envelope to the way that the Movie Industry needs to function and how does it compare to when Napster changed the Music Industry?

We refer back to the Streaming Services which we covered in detail in a previous episode here: https://seanorama.podbean.com/e/season-5-episode-12-%e2%80%93-rating-the-music-streaming-services/

Episode 275 – Marvel’s Union Jack

July 24th, 2020

Seanorama’s favorite all time comic book character is Marvel’s Union Jack, a hero with a legacy, with 3 different people donning the famous union jack flag. Always severely under-represented in the comics, the character’s few appearances always straddled the line between grounded stories and the supernatural. I explain away why I was drawn to the character, the retrofitted history of the character, the treasure hunt search for all of his appearances, the blue collar aspect of the character, the script for the comic I wrote, and the various action figures released.

Episode 269 – Broken - The State of Affairs

June 15th, 2020

This year has been brutal on so many fronts from COVID19, police brutality and JK Rowling. Will this be the year that history remembers and the year where everything changes forever? Will we unite or divide?

I am not alone in being emotionally wrung out. We all are frustrated and angry, anxious and depressed, and for every single light that shines through, another event comes up to shake our foundations.

Seanorama offers his thoughts on getting through it and ends the episode with the song Broken by Sean and Todd McGinity.

Special shout out to Hugo from Hugo’s Posts episode (below) that inspired this episode.

Seanorama and FastFretFinger welcome magician and comedian Clayton T Stewart to the podcast to talk about the late Harry Houdini. They break away the myth of the master illusionist and escape artist and cover: influence on the wrestling and vaudeville beginnings, how heavy his immigrant status played into his show and his everyman superman mystique, the supernatural and trickery, his escapes and comparing them to wrestling finishers, how he died and his history with Spiritualists.

The gang also talks about Corey Toews’ Meet The Geeks.

Some advice, some perspective, how to get past it, the importance of silliness, and drone mentality.

His episode is here and I strongly recommend taking a listen first:
https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/jay-recher/rant-while-driving-to-work/e/69381072
You can follow Rant over here on Twitter: @rantwhile  

The new campaign, how it ties to past campaigns, the parallel nature of COVID and my book, and how the new book fits into the new game. We answer requests from players who want a new campaign out of me.

Seanorama talks Keycon not happening this year, what it means and what about that year I boycotted the event and the reasons behind it.

Episode 264 – Eat Em 5150

May 11th, 2020

Seanorama and FastFretFingers pit Van Halen’s 5150 album versus David Lee Roth’s Eat Em And Smile. The boys throw down, track by track, album versus album, talk about naked men on album covers, successful lead single releases, Eddie Van Halen spoon player extraordinaire, recording quality, Stevie Vai, cover songs, frou-frou songs, Todd’s covers are always better than the originals, New Brunswick translations of David Lee Roth songs, Live without Annette, Steve Vai’s sound, their favorite song on each, least favorite song on each, and they screw the math on the results.

Episode 263 – What Trolls World Tour Is Really About

May 6th, 2020

Inspired by Aaron Virola’s wish to NOT see this movie that his daughter wanted to see, and by my own kids’ wanting to see it, we rented the film. But here is the trick: the trailers are misleading and hide what the movie is really about. If you are a musician and you hate the current wave of music forced on us by corporate media, this movie might be for you.

Beaver Does Movies and Primarily Critical are back for part two of the Versus Game of Remakes versus their Original.

Watch A Man Go Full Ham – The gang look at the US remaking movies from other parts of the world. Can a great American director put his stamp on a gem from the Far East?

I Shaved My Armpits for This – This is a battle of practical effects versus CGI. What makes a film visually stunning? And just how great is James Earl Jones?

The Battle of the Hats – Does the hat make the man? Does a complete lack of musical talent make up for a complete lack of acting ability? Can one of the best actors battle an iceberg?

Episode 244 – Self Checkout, Costing Jobs or Saving You Money

January 20th, 2020

Seanorama and FastFretFingers chat about self checkouts and bagging your own groceries. Does having self checkout save you--- the consumer--- money, or simply put people out of work? How does Costco fit into this with designated cashiers and employees that pack your shopping cart? The second half discusses Ikea, the Swedish phenomenon and their checkout process and their other innovations. And in another bit, the both talk about Canada’s conversion to the Metric system. And finally, Seanorama talks about his impending arrest.

Teases: The boys offer a hint for an upcoming episode about the Mandalorean and Star Wars and a tease for a guest spot on someone else’s shows. And a shoutout to James Beaver (@BeaverDoes) and Roger Boyer (@kojbfilms) for an amazing episode of Beaver Does Movies.

All of this was recorded during a cold spell in Winnipeg. They slip in winter talk, shovelling driveways, and slippery streets.

Episode 241 – Spider-Man

January 10th, 2020

As always, recorded live and in the raw (sorry about the quality on this one). Seanorama talks history with Spider-Man. What is it about the character that makes him remain so popular almost 60 years later? This brings up talk of bullies and jocks, the relatability of Peter Parker, and the life lessons he gave me. He also talks about Spider-Man on the small and large screen including all its iterations from the 60’s cartoon, to Nicholas Hammond’s live action version, to the 90’s Spider-Man cartoon, leading up to why we were lucky enough to get Sam Raimi’s 2002 Spider-Man.

He also addresses WHY “comic-book” movies like Spider-Man ARE cinema and are so important to the world and WHY they changed the game, probably more so than those other “real” cinematic films.

Here is Marvel’s page on him: https://www.marvel.com/characters/spider-man-peter-parker
