Thank You for Doing This • What We Did on Our Summer Vacation

mikeTwo in a row? You’re damn right! After last week’s NFL jock-sniffing extravaganza, Pat and Chris regroup to talk about all the stu….well, at least some of the stuff they watched or read over the past few months, including the 2016 Rio Olympics and the slightly-deniably amazing Michael Phelps, the Emmys, Stranger Things, Mr. Robot, Moby Dick (yeah, you read that right), and Game of Thrones. It will be quite painful….FOR YOU!

Crowdfinders • Episode 42 • Kelly Bender

StarburnDavid was so happy to talk to Kelly Bender, an indie inspiration who is living the dream (which, in the indie world means GRINDING every day, pushing the rock and actually seeing it move)!

They talk process, team building, and how he gets it done. Not to be missed.

Be sure to shout out to Kelly on the Twitter if you want to tell him how much you love him… @KellyBender17

Thank You for Doing This • A Reunion and Reboots!

Thank You for Doing This • Kurt Russell, Quentin Tarantino, and More Recs

kurtThank You For Doing This! is back with an exploration of the life and times of an American cinematic hero: Mr. Kurt Russell. Chris and Pat talk about the Big Trouble in Little China reboot, their favorites from the Russell film catalogue (Snake Plissken sighting!), and the upcoming film he’s doing with Quentin Tarantino, The Hateful Eight. !SEGUE ALERT! The guys talk about the Tarantino films that worked, the ones that didn’t, and what the hell is up with 70mm film anyway? Throw in a little hodgepodge of recommendations (Pat kinda takes Chris to school), and you’ve got yourself a hot steaming pile of TYFDT!

Up Late with Rus & Pat – Episode 21

CrippleFight15After a week and a half, Rus & Pat are back, talking out of our asses about things we barely understand. In this long episode, clocking in at 2 hours and 20 minutes, we discuss everything from the new Star Wars comic from Marvel to comic art, painting with oils and in Photoshop, upcoming comic and sci-fi movies like the Fantastic Four reboot, Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix, the possible Ghost in the Shell adaptation, Marvel’s Agent Carter show, and more. There’s a discussion on fanboy rage in regard to movie adaptations and a debate on the idea of the whitewashing of Hollywood, wherein Rus somehow turns it around onto himself and how disability is portrayed in movies, which may or may not be comparable at all with how Hollywood deals with minority actors and characters in general. We’ll let you decide. Two more things about this ep: one, Joel Grey’s character Chiun in 1985’s Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, was neither Chinese nor Japanese, as Rus so clumsily tried to remember, but Korean; two, spoiler alert if you haven’t watched the second season of House of Cards on Netflix, because we discuss its finale, so you might want to fast-forward a bit when you get to that part. We thank you for listening, and we’ve got some fun, related videos on our All-Things-Geek page as usual!

Up Late with Rus & Pat – Episode 5

Screenshot 2014-10-24 15.47.12We’re back, lickety-split! This shorter, sweeter episode deals with comic book art and artists as disparate as Robert Crumb (right) and Walt Simonson, as well as our reviews of the latest X-Men film, X-Men: Days of Future Past, recently released on Bluray and DVD. We forget to discuss a few important aspects of that movie, like the breakout character Quicksilver, but we’ll try to get back to them at a later time. Also, we open the podcast with a new Red Hot Rebellion tune!
