Laugh It Up Fuzzball #53 - It has been a year..

Well friends... the title says it all. One year of podcasting and what a year it was. I thought of different ways to kick off the second year of the show and finally decided on just ruminating on some of my favorite episodes from the 59 that popped up however the heck you listen to this madness. So much life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. A one hundred dollar experiment that somehow traversed the world of geekdom to being a really fun way for me to get my inner geek (and the geeks of some great people) out into the universe for others to enjoy. Welcome to Level 53... the first of a whole new year. New year... same Wookiee.

So... this all starts with me just talking about the show and the last year. Somehow my list of favorites was actually ten and while this is not another Top 10... there's ten solid episodes I recommend for anyone new to the show. As promised, here's the list:

11 - Shaun Talks Geek Movies
15 - Cuidado Piso Mojado, Spoilers & Hot Coffee
21 - Hey Kids, Comics!
22 - A Solar Orbit In Review
25 - We are one with the Force and the Force is with us
32 – It’s like… a geeky horror episode
33 - Disney and the Fuzzy Beast
Bonusode #2 - Wonder Woman NS Review
46 - 4 Tangentleman… Top 5 video games… one good time
52 – One Year Fuzztacular Top 10 with Danny & Blue

I think this is a great bunch of episodes to recommend to anyone finding the podcast or a good grouping if you wanted to go back and re-listen to any of them. I enjoy the heck out of every recording but these shine above the rest of them. No surprise, 8 out of 10 are guest episodes.

The podcast also includes a couple movie reviews with Blue for Ghost in the Shell (2017) and Captain America: Civil War. Blue and I also tossed in one superhero each that we wished we had remembered to put in out Top 10. Apologies to Blue Marvel and Beast for our omissions.

It all ends with a long non-spoiler (or as close as I could get) review for the new Dark Tower movie. Not a rant but let's just say there's a certain parental tone to my thoughts.

Overall though... I said it best at the end while bouncing back and forth on the space-time continuum in this episode. It has been a year and what a year it was. I'm so excited for all the hilarity and geekery that this year will bring. Lots of thoughts form me about the show and some stuff that I'm hoping for as far as content goes. I hope you enjoy it all as much as I do putting it out into the world for auditory consumption. This is a good start to whatever may come my way. Congrats on completing Level 53 of the podcast.

Laugh It Up Fuzzball Bonusode #4 - Even More with Daniel Squared

Hey howdy hey friends! So hopefully you enjoyed the hell out of Danny, Blue, and I doing our Top 10 superheroes. It's always so much fun when my pals show up to talk geek and as usual, there was more than just two plus hours of content. I figure... hey, it's been a year so let me drop another bonusode for all you listeners. Geeky rambling about life, the universe, and everything is the name of the game and this is right up that alley. It starts off just with a general geeky conversation between Blue and I about geeky things that make us happy… comic books from the world, good stories, table top games, and more. Blue and I talk a little about growing up as a geek (drawing anime & comic books, geek parents, Alex Trebek, robot stuff, Star Wars books/RPG, and more) and then Danny showed up, we recorded the Top Ten Fuzztacular and the whole tone changed. This is almost like bookends for the last episode. It’s a bit of a jarring change (once I say "standby one" it's on like Danny Kong) but we had lots of energy following the previous recording. Basically, we just rambled about all sorts of topics including:

First Look of Zazie Beetz as Domino in Deadpool 2
A brief non-spoiler review of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Excitement over Dark Tower and IT movies
Thoughts on Ron Howard and Han Solo movie (social media, the Kasdan script, Bradford Young still the cinematographer, How to Train Your Dragon's John Powell to compose)
Noah Hawley from Legion and Fargo headlining a Dr. Doom movie
James Cameron says he’s planning trilogy of rebooted Terminator movies
Warwick Davis has a role in Han Solo movie
Oscar campaign for Wonder Woman
Jaume Collet-Serra to direct Jungle Cruise movie with script written by Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home scribes
Ideas for Suicide Squad 2 director since Serra is leaving
THR reports that Sony Pictures is eyeing Jared Leto to star in Dave Wilson’s adaptation of the comic Bloodshot
Random Batman/DC talk
Dave Filoni reveals Ahsoka and Kanan knew each other during the Clone Wars
Thrawn will be a five-issue miniseries
Josh Brolin reveals he may be back as Thanos in tweet
Emilia Clarke Instagram video with Chewbacca
Hans Zimmer alongside IT’s Benjamin Wallfisch to score Bladerunner 2049
New Matt Groening show on Netflix called Disenchantment
Skottie Young’s I Hate Fairyland
Things we’re excited about: Game of Thrones Season 7, Bright, The Defenders and Punisher
Danny tangents: Stranger Things (cuz Danny finally watched it), Euron Greyjoy as Wolverine, The Kingsman: The Golden Circle, and a Nerf Deadpool gun

Lots of laughter, geek talk, and Danny ranting when something bothers him which is hilarious to me. So much hilarity as we rambled and enjoyed each other’s company. Congrats on completing this fourth bonusode of the podcast. Another great addition to the summer of guests but I always enjoy spending time with friends talking about the geek stuff we all love. Special thanks to Blue (@bluewolfd) and Danny for donating their time. Feel free to drop a comment here or contact me on Twitter and/or Instagram (@wookieeriot). I'd love to hear from you.

Laugh It Up Fuzzballs (Ep. 45) Part Deux – The FOURce is strong with us!

Hey howdy hey friends! Welcome back to the second part of the Four Tangentleman talking geek about life, the universe, and everything. This time we focus on some Star Wars news we couldn’t fit into the first part plus a nice bonus of Blue, Purple Man, and Darth Jon talking video games and E3. Lots of goodness here in another bombtastic geek convo. Here’s what you can find in this installment:

Bad Lip Reading Yoda ‘Seagulls’
The Last Jedi Vanity Fair issue
Rian Johnson about creative freedom in Star Wars & what it means
Boba Fett thoughts
We salute Laurie Goode aka the Storm trooper who bumped his head
Vanity Fair covers: fave being helmetless Phasma with pike & Leia
Rian Johnson re: writing process of challenging every character
Ewoks and whatever the village of indigenous caretaker creatures in Last Jedi means

Blue longs for a return for Darth Nihilus
Star Wars Old Republic
Dave Filoni debunks fan rumor re: Ahsoka

Darth Jon’s far-fetched Snoke theory

And then we just devolve into random fuzzy thoughts about geeky things in the world like a Power Rangers jingle as a text tone, Star Wars novelizations right next to classic literature at Barnes & Noble, character lookalikes in comics, and I am Groot happiness. But don’t worry, we then find focus and talk some news from the E3 convention and just video games in general. Basically it's three well-verses geeks and me proving I know very little about most video game properties. Here's what we covered:

X-Box One X/S
Two Brand New Metroid games & Megaman
Metroid Prime 4
Halo
Beyond Good and Evil 2
Assassin’s Creed
Remastered Shadow of the Colossus
God of War fighting Norse gods
Super Mario talk (Odyssey, New Donk City, Mario Cart 8 Deluxe, and more)

Laugh It Up Fuzzball Bonusode #3 - Hey fuzzies, comical booklets!

Hey hey friends! Happy Wednesday again with another bonusode. Some extra free time this summer has led to even more than just a ton of guest episodes, I've also had more time to catch up on all the funny books I love to read. I've had a few reviews saved for a while but haven't had room in the last few episodes so I said to my self... self, why not do an occasional bonusode to catch up? Well... that's a genius idea and here we are with bonus content. This first installment, in what could be a more frequent offering provided there's time, includes 30 comics. I hope you enjoy this as much as I did recording it. Here's what you can find in this solo edition of In the Stacks which I sort of think of as the comical booklet bonusodes (until I think of a better name):

X-Men: Blue Issues 1 to 4
X-Men Gold Issues 1 to 5
Secret Empire Issue 2
Steve Rogers Captain America Issue 17
Secret Empire Issue 3
Secret Empire: Brave New World Issue 1
Secret Empire: Uprising Issue 1
Occupy Avengers Issues 4 to 7
Wonder Woman Rebirth Issues 16 to 23 plus Annual #1
The Flash Rebirth Issues 16 to 20
Batman Rebirth Issues 16 to 20
Star Wars Issue 31
Doctor Aphra Issue 7
Darth Vader Issue 1
 
I'm stoked to finally get some comic reviews recorded and there's more where this came from. I've already read at least 7 more issues and a collected volume. Feel free to drop a comment here or contact me on Twitter and/or Instagram (@wookieeriot). I'd love to hear from you.

Laugh It Up Fuzzballs (Ep. 44) – Return of the Danny

Hey hey friends. It seems to be the Summer of Guest episodes which is no surprise since I have more time during this time of the year. I had so much fun with a directionless episode with Blue and Justin that I decided to do it again this time with Danny. Bonus, it’s another trio since his friend Joe joined in although I fear Danny and I really didn’t let him talk. Powerful personalities breed powerful conversations about life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. This is another fun geeky conversation and includes:

X-Men (including a brief X-Men: Blue discussion and Secret Empire)
Marvel’s Annihilation: Conquest
20th anniversary of Death of Superman
Danny reviews Thor: God of Thunder Issues 1 to 24 by Jason Aaron
Thoughts on younglings discovering comics today with diverse superheroes
Civil War II comic
The Han Solo movie
Tala Ashe cast for Legends of Tomorrow as Muslim American hero
Thoughts on the newest seasons/finales of Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, Flash, Arrow, and Agents of Shield (and bonus Gotham bashing)
Spoiler thoughts on Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2
Wizard fan casting for Lobo in Supergirl
501st Legion visits sick kids in hospital for 40th Anniversary of Star Wars
Some thoughts about the longevity of superhero movies (Wonder Woman, Zack Snyder’s 300 filter, Joss Whedon, Nolan’s Batman movies, and more)
And Danny’s tease of wanting to talk about the upcoming apocalypse right before we end.

Life is good but it is even better when you can have good conversations like this and enjoy the company of like-minded geeks. Congrats on completing Level 44 of the podcast. I'm sure the Summer of Guests will probably continue well past this one. Special thanks to Danny and Joe for joining me. Feel free to drop a comment here or contact me on Twitter and/or Instagram (@wookieeriot). I'd love to hear from you.

Laugh It Up Fuzzballs (Ep. 43) – Three Geeks and a Podcast

Hey howdy hey friends! Welcome to Episode 43 of the podcast. I was lucky to have not one BUT two of my pals join me for a rudderless journey through life, the universe, and everything but mostly geek stuff. You know Blue (@bluewolfd) from previous recordings but my buddy and talented artist Justin (@jrgray01) joined in this time. Three times the geekery here friends! Good things come in threes, right? SNIKT! Fair warning… this is three geeky friends talking without a script of any sort after midnight. There are tons of delightful digressions while we navigate through all sorts of things. I put the digression topics in parenthesis just for fun and in the hope you’ll be interested in how they connect to the main topic. The long and short is this moment in time was a lot of fun and I hope that joy translates when you listen to it. Here’s what you can find in this installment:

Justice League Dark movie review (James Earl Jones/The Matrix movies/Finding Nemo/simulations)
Fame vs making people happy
Dr. Strange MCU movie (Logan/singing swans/pod racing/magic)
Guardians of the Galaxy
Ang Lee’s HULK (other Hulks, Thor: Ragnarok, Guardians of the Galaxy again)
Alita: Battle Angel & 2017 Ghost in the Shell (also the A.I. movie, Alien: Covenant, Kong: Skull Island, Pacific Rim, Mama 2, and the Hellboy Reboot)
“Oscar winning” Suicide Squad (Star Trek Beyond, Swamp Thing)
Comic – Seven to Eternity

We end by briefly tackling some of the big geek debates:
Freddy or Jason
Is pluto a planet?
Juggernaut vs The Blob
Would sex with Superman kill Lois?
Who’s the best Doctor?
Joel or Mike?
Do Balrogs have wings?
Star Trek or Star Wars

So much hilarity and even more topics I didn't map out as we rambled and enjoyed each other’s company. Congrats on completing Level 43 of the podcast. This one honestly was one of my favorites so far. It’s always great to spend time with friends talking about the geek stuff you love. Special thanks to Blue and Justin for joining me.
