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/

Special thanks to: @Senppai90 and Jarett from Comic Factory IV.
