Well folks. We did it! Corey Toews started off this idea for an alumni reunion of the cast and crew of Star Wars The Evil Within. This whole movement brought back the director/star of the movie Clayton Stewart back into the fold, got us some footage from the movie and a featurette uploaded to the “interweb”, and reunited many people who have not seen each other in years. So here it is: the panel from Keycon 2018 for The Evil Within Alumni reunion.

Are bands brands that can continue with a revolving door of musicians or does the band lose integrity every time someone in a band is replaced? Bands like Bulletboys, Kiss, Queensryche, Great White and Ratt have had controversial lineup changes and some even have two versions of the band out there competing for the same audience. Are we as fans being duped? Are the bands just trying to make a living?

Todd talks about his first mods on his guitars, and the that whole technical side of getting that sound you want out of your guitars. They cover Todd’s recreations of the Van Halen guitars to getting just the right sound. From humble beginnings of trial and error, and the time Todd ran over a guitar with his car, to Todd’s guitar wall of fame.
Here is an interesting link to Eddie’s guitars that provided the inspiration for Todd’s guitar modding.

Seanorama gets passionate in this episode as he reviews the lackadaisical and weak poor character arcs that flowed through Graeme Simsion’s The Best of Adam Sharp, the famous author behind the Rosie Project and Scar Tissue, the biography on Anthony Kiedis. He finds redemption in the Russell Brand interview on Joe Rogan’s podcast, local Winnipeg music and especially on the Village Idiots’ Live At The Roslyn.

Quoth’s next show here: “Join Ramskull, Five Hundred Pound Furnace and Quoth The Sun on December 8th as we spend the evening remembering and celebrating the timeless legacy of Dimebag Darrell as well as raise awareness for Schizophrenia and PTSD.” Great cause great bands. Please go check them out.

Due to some technical glitches and a poor audio quality on the last upload, I have joined the two part interview with Danny as a full length intyerview with the man behind the guitar.
Danny Roy is the guitar slinger for Thunderfunk, former multi-instrumentalist for The Divorcees and the Melanie Morgan Band, bass player for Love Guns, and current guitar tech for Gordie Johnson from Big Sugar. The two get down and deep about the music industry, the east coast of Canada and the Scene.

To quote Jack Black: is it, in fact, unfair to criticize a formerly great artist for his latter day sins, is it better to burn out or fade away?
Seanorama struggles with the sins of the present as Todd Fastfretfingers convinces him of the validity of the past Van Halen collection despite their current struggles through a re-introduction of Diver Down. That’s right, a trip down the greatness that was Van Halen and how revolutionary those first Van Halen albums were, and how relevant they still should still be.

“Phil Lord and Chris Miller fired from Han Solo movie.” Todd Fastfretfingers plays Headlines with Seanorama as he provides his opinion on Lord and Miller being let go of Disney/Lucasfilm’s Han Solo movie and their replacement by Ron Howard. Todd is NOT a Star Wars fan, hasn’t seen the Lego movie, has no connection to the headline, has never heard of the directors but DOES know Ron Howard. Nonetheless, provides an honest interpretation of the headline without reading the article. You will be surprised at his candour, smarts and perspective. Todd is a wise man.

Seanorama and special guest Tracy-Ann Leith discuss whether rock music has finally been killed as Gene Simmons and Dee Snider tell it, or whether there is still life in the old beast. Since the advent of Napster and the digital music age, it is not news to anyone that the sale of albums continuously dwindle each year. Is rock dead or is there a resurgence many of us don’t see coming?
August 26th, 2017
Although Seanorama’s online callsign is rockgodsinger, he very clearly adds (sic) at the end of the name: rockgodsinger(sic). In today’s society the term Rockstar is bandied about as some sort of catchphrase that everyone uses and casually applies to people, particularly in the business world. This is one of those cases where a word is taken over by another group, misunderstood, and rebranded reducing the impact of the word in the appropriated setting. What does it all mean? Listen in and find out.

Seanorama and special guest Todd Fastfretfingers are talking games!
