Seanorama and Voicesbytracy discuss Wrecking Crew’s Carol Kaye schooling Gene Simmons (correction from the podcast, I incorrectly thought Carol Kaye was part of Muscle Shoals when she is in fact part of the Wrecking Crew); JC Surrette and Mike Patterson at Le Bordel comedy club; name dropping Gagnon Beach; The Winnipeg Art Gallery and the Cannes Lions; Ikea, their commercials and the death of the founder; and the genius of Robin Williams.

Seanorama’s review of the Deep Dark Cave/Disraeli Dreamers/Moon Tan show Saturday Feb 3rd. I had a blast at the show for the Dreamers CD release party but I also got a chance to hear Deep Dark Cave and Moon Tan for the first time. What a great show! Oh yeah, and here is the review for the new EP Insomnia Island!
And a special shout out to @ticketmomster. Great review of the show!

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.

Seanorama and brother/bandmate Todd Fastfretfingers talk about their Dome show at the New Club St B this past Fridays. They talk about the venue, the amazing sound by Michael Daher, and the bands that shared the bill: Quoth the Sun and Willswitch Engage.
Update: Apparently the New Club St B is no more and we were the last show. Very sad news indeed.
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! The discussion goes through linear games versus sandbox games; cross compatibility between computer and console games; and downloadable content. This is a gaming feast! Dig in!

As a long time GamesMaster, Seanorama has played with a host of players over the years. Some of these characters his players have created have stood the test of time and are still spoken of with reverence. Who is THE favourite character he has ever seen in one of his games? Well, none other than El Tigre from the Symka RPG. Hear why El Tigre was tops in his book, a little bit about its creator James Remnant and El Tigre’s legacy.

Seanorama discusses the writing on Dome’s Head On, it’s evolution from it’s original origins to it’s final end. See below for the lyrics to the latest version. He also discusses the release of Wonder Woman and other properties, it’s cultural significance, and why strong female characters in movies rock.
Move your wayward face, Push it all away.
Deviate your place, Lead yourself astray
You can’t make me make up false claims
Accusing him just to push your aims
Head, head, on
Put away his fate, they will know his face.
It was just play, and you took him away.
The mask he wore was not what you saw.
He’s not a hole you can shove full of
Head, head, on

Seanorama takes the SeanGeek Podcast On The Road to Keycon, Winnipeg’s premiere science fiction and fantasy convention. Take a walk through the convention with brother Todd Fastfretfingers (from the band Dome) and Corey Toews (Brother K’Bob from Meet The Geeks). And yes, in this episode, he does in fact get stuck trying to find parking on the way to Keycon. This is weird, this is quirky and unorthodox. Enjoy the ‘cast!
I did not get chance to try everything at Keycon. I have tagged what is covered in the episode that I was able to enjoy, but not what I didn't get a chance to indulge in. Do you want to be in next year's episode? Do you want to be covered in an episode in the SeanGeek podcast before next Keycon? Do you want to influence the direction of the coverage next year? Hit me up and let's set something up.

I don't have the will, the capacity to handle the news that came through this week, so I am re-using an old episode from Season 1. I will get back to the topic of the man's untimely demise, but for now, let's go back in time when Seanorama felt he had to defend Chris against the people that were slamming his vocal abilities.

In this episode, Seanorama tackles the philosophical “right” versus “wrong”. How to navigate arguments, get along and really understand the philosophy behind winning the argument. From fighting over the toilet paper roll, how to store Tupperware, and the evils of online bullying. Is right and wrong a matter of context?
April 16th, 2017
Seanorama discusses the problems with getting everything set up to go see Logan with his lovely wife. Yes, being a dad is a challenge when you have two kids! With all the family commitments, why did the dynamic duo pick this movie to go see, how did they do and what did they think of the movie?

Thor: Ragnarok – Talks the science of marketing Thor to a broader audience and how the moves they are doing in Ragnarok to bring the audience in.

Spider-Man – What more can be said! He doesn’t have much to say, but he is reading the Spider-Man comic book again!
March 25th, 2017
The baby deer and Dungeons and Dragons. How the best storytellers are GM’s. And how the best bands write together.
