And now for my next act....

In the biggest news of the day, Both Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett both passed away. Farrah from cancer and Michael Jackson from a cardiac arrest (still trying to figure out why).

And in other news....

Big news everyone! We are back on iTunes again! Yes, not only can you get the podcast directly on our blog, download using any other program, but you can now find us in the iTunes Store! So go out and make us look good and download the podcast! Be up to date on all the latest news!

For those of you who are interested in seeing me be an extra, you can watch S. Darko. I played a Mormon Mission (Big Stretch I know). I am in the diner scene in chapter 6 about 18 minutes in. You can see me behind the main character several different times. At least I'm excited!

Now I am off to Burbank, California to attend a Animation Voice Over class. I'm totally excited! (though I will probably be broke afterwards but it will be worth it)

Lastly, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was awesome. Go see it, have fun, and I'll give a proper review of the show a little later.

Peace out!
Til Tuesday,

New Podcast Experiments

Alright listeners....

In the ever continuing quest to make the show, site and podcast better, I am trying to see if I can link the show episodes directly to the blog. So let see if I get get this to work.

Hopefully, it will automatically show up, but if it doesn't let us know. Plus you can go directly to our feed at

Have fun!

Okay, I have to admit that with this experiment has come an experiment with the blog template. I think that I have finally found one that is wide enough but I still may change things if I can find a good one.

If anyone knows how to edit .xml or has a template with wide columns, enough for the embedded player, PLEASE let me know!

New Podcast Host! Finally....

Hey Boys and Girls!

Just thought I would let you stop by and let you know about some news.

First off, we finally had the digital switch for broadcast television! So if you can't watch tv anymore, you need to get a converter box (which you can get a coupon for from the government) or you need to get cable or sat. Or unplug everything and just use the internet. (Which now a days is absolutely an option)

Now for the big news. We finally have a new podcast host! It's

I am still trying to work out the kinks so there might be some problems. If there are, let me know. We should have the Itunes links fixed very soon as well. I am starting with the old episodes, and then adding the new ones.

Hope you enjoy it! Have fun and see you on Tuesday!

New Post because we need new content for this month!

Yep, that about sums the subject for this post from your intrepid host......

Actually, I thought that I should quickly review two other major movies that have come out for your movie going enjoyment.

First is Disney/Pixar's Up! This was a great movie with great storytelling. Without giving too much away, it focuses on a older gentleman who has lived a happy yet ordinary life. Him and his wife had always planned on living different adventures, especially to a set of falls in Venezuela that they had had seen in a news reel when they were little. However, circumstances always prevented them from going. Once his wife passes away, he become a retired grumpy old man, who after a particular incident decides to make his entire house move with a whole bunch of helium filled balloons. But along for the ride (by accident) is an 8-year-old who is as close to being a cub/boy scout without infringing on copyrights.

Don't worry, all I have given away happens in about the first 5 minutes.

This movie definitely deserves 4 stars. Pixar continues to put storyline first but at the same time makes a beautiful movie. This is a movie that is for all ages (though I will admit it made me tear up a bit.) Though, my only feeling is that this isn't quite as funny as some previous movies, so extremely younger kids may lose interest. (Basically if they liked Wall-e, they would like this movie). I do have to say one of the best old people fights is in the movie. Also the score is great and conducted by Michael Giacchino, who did the music for "The Incredibles" as well as the other summer blockbuster "Star Trek." Definitely a must see. You can see it in 3-D or in regular screens.

Alright, now on to this weeks premiere of "Land of the Lost." This movie is based off the old television series and stars Will Ferrell. This movie wasn't quite as funny as I thought it would be. I would probably give it 2.5 stars. But that is typical for a Will Ferrell movie, so that should tell you something. However, this movie does have it's moments, even finding a way to work the original theme song into the show. (as well "A Chorus Line." Don't ask.) This movie is PG-13 for a reason, but pulls out some decent laughs, especially if you are trying to identify all the things that have traveled through time, etc.

The different bits with Matt Lauer are great. I have to admit that I didn't watch much of the original show, so some of the different tributes may be lost on me, but I don't think it was too necessary to at least enjoy the movie.

WORD TO THE WISE!!! You need to stay at least half way through the credits! Most people missed out on another scene because they had already left. Everyone may want to join in on my policy and just watch the rest of the credits all the time. There are too many things that are missed by people because they just jet. People you can wait for a couple more minutes.

Alright, with that now said, I believe that we have finished our search for a podcast host (unless anyone has any suggestions) so we should have that all back up and running.

Until Tuesday,
