    (0:40) Introductions! Karen is with SeanGeek today. As we catch up, we talk Winnipeg Fringe Festival, Taxidermy, DND Improv, and Charles Ross' One Man Star Wars (17:04) We discuss Suicide Squad in detail, full of spoilers, segueing into (26:58) the X-Men films. What did we think of Dark Phoenix? What was right and what went wrong? And just what do we think about the use of Mystique in the series, using the Wolverine effect to “carry” the movies. Who was the better Mystique and why? And what would we have fixed to make the film better? (58:31) And what about the final X-film? You know, New Mutants? What did New Mutants get right and why a more personal film really suited the film? Here are some of the Fringe related things we talked about: https://www.winnipegfringe.com/ (https://www.winnipegfringe.com/) https://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/entertainment/arts/get-stuffed-216396371.html (https://www.winnipegfreepress.com/arts-and-life/entertainment/arts/get-stuffed-216396371.html) https://www.instagram.com/dndimprov/?hl=en (https://www.instagram.com/dndimprov/?hl=en) https://onemanstarwars.com/ (https://onemanstarwars.com/) #winnipegfringefestival #suicidesquad #darkphoenix #newmutants Website: http://www.seanmcginity.ca/ (www.seanmcginity.ca) Meet The Geeks: http://mtgcomic.thecomicseries.com/ (http://mtgcomic.thecomicseries.com/) @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @toddgeek on Twitter @fastfretfingers on Instagram @ToddGeeks Tech Talk on Facebook @mbpodfest Support this podcast

    (2:00) The boys talk sidekicks, rap and Eminem's Robin. (4:54) Do you like coffee? We do some investigation into the top three brands and whether they are Canadian, giving our vote on our favorite. Somehow that talk blends in with potato chips, bubble gum and caviar. And lots of candy! (21:38) Why are there so many different charging cables and what is the European Union going to do about it? Is Apple getting nervous? This takes us down a rabbit hole of companies obsoleting their product ON PURPOSE. We talk video game systems, phones, and proprietary properties. (39:31) The boys compare and contrast the various charity supergroups that exploded during the 80's such as Band Aid, USA for Africa, Northern Lights and Hear N Aid. We break down each of them, talk about who was involved, who wrote what and ultimately which was the better representation of music and which organization handled their funds the best.

Each is peppered with some Kiss trivia, our personal discoveries of the band, and some rumors about each. (13:04) Kiss (29:12) Hotter Than Hell (46:00) Dressed To Kill This episode was spurred on by a rejuvenation into Kiss spurred on by the Shout It Out Loudcast. Their unequivocal enthusiasm for the band spurred this idea and brought Danny back for a guest spot on the show.

That image is from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip created by Bill Watterson. It was never approved, Watterson has never been paid, and companies continue to take advantage of the image to diminish someone else's brand. (16:01) We also discuss Canadian sitcoms Kim's Convenience, Corner Gas, Trailer Park Boys, Schitt's Creek and continuations of shows with animated follow ups.

    We welcome Rob Kristjansson for the first time to the show! This week we are doing a little nostalgia, comparing pronunciations, and getting caught up. (12:16) Today’s topic centers around recent news between Gene Simmons and David Lee Roth with a sprinkling of Paul Stanley. In brief, Gene made some disparaging comments about Dave that spiraled into multiple news headlines that had Kiss fans talking. What the hell is going on between Gene Simmons and David Lee Roth. We share Gene’s original statement (16:08) and Dave’s response to it, followed by a “statement” by Paul Stanley (26:08). And then Gene apologized (29:57). The question we pose is: who put Gene up to apologize? This all rolls into Paul Stanley and his vocal struggles (40:32) and we discuss a rather bad performance of Love Gun in Barcelona (43:53). (51:52) We finish off this episode with some “Farewell Tour” talk and how, literally Keith Richards is out of his tree.

Who is she, what can she do and what are her plans? We break down the character and her beats and her interaction with Loki. (3:24) Comparisons to Logan’s Run and the mad dance on the train. They talk about their mothers and we really get inside both of their heads. The Time Loop and we get to see Sif again! There are some great interactions with Mobius and he leans the truth. And we see that moment that Loki and Sylvie fall in love, and just what does that mean. (16:28) Episode 5 really shows off Loki’s glorious purpose and we get to meet many more variant Lokis. There is so much to see in this episode, and we learn how Classic Loki’s history might teach how the present tense Loki might still be alive. (26:24) Doom? We really wanted it here but we get something different in Episode 6. We finally meet Kang, or at least a variant of him. Just what does this mean to the series, and to the MCU? (30:56) We lead into the next several MCU Releases and what Loki means to what comes next. How has the storytelling changed going into this phase?

    Now that FastFret and SeanGeek are both playing hours of the multiplatform hit State of Decay 2, we have come upon various tips and tricks, strategies, best practices, and overall understanding of how best to beat the game (over and over again). This game has replayability written all over it. We cover lots of ground, so here is the breakdown of this episode and the stuff we covered: (2:08) Pull up your radio and call in for assistance in various capacities, primarily with Prestige Points. How do you get them and what are they good for? And what other things can you call in? (7:31) Red Talon are a faction within the game series, and in this iteration, you can play as Red Talon members in the Daybreak mode. Gaining Prestige Points spills over in the Campaign portion of the game, which allows recruiting Red Talon into your Community. We explain how. (8:25) Outposts are extensions of your Base and can provide much needed assistance, in more ways than are immediately apparent. Learn how we use Outposts in the game to maximize resource gathering, making sure your base is well protected, and how having a floating outpost makes everything better. (10:38) Your Base has a number of spots that yield different results to your Community. What are the best Facilities your Base needs? (12:00) How do Skills in the game work and what happens when they level? (13:39) Your Base is set up with some Facilities, but did you know you can Modify each of them? (14:34) Finishing the Game is not the end. What happens when you beat State of Decay 2 and why would you play again? (16:35) Special Skills really add a layer to the game. What do they do? (21:32) What makes the game the most unique is the Cooperative Multiplayer, which is unique to the game. We have never seen the like before. What are the advantages? (24:15) Daybreak is a whole other section of the game, often referred to as Horde Mode. We go into detail on this game mode. (25:26) There are numerous little touches spread out through the game. These signatures tell other stories in this world and we share a couple of them. (29:37) Vehicle Upgrades change your vehicle from a regular car to a souped up zombie killing machine. We go into detail on upgrades. (30:42) The Enclaves on the map can help you in various ways. As long as you help them, they can help you. (32:08) Always bring another member of your Community with you on missions. It doubles your carrying capacity. We explain how to make the best use of bringing a companion on missions. (34:39) Choosing a Leader sets up a variety of missions in the game. Which should you choose? Remember that each leader type gets their own story. Which of the four types will you play? (37:40) Making Ammo can help your Community last a long time. You might run out of ammo, but you can make more with the right Facilities and Mods. (39:06) Each Leader type gets you different things in the game. Here is a quick runthrough of what each gets you. (39:50) As easy as the game is to get into, there is a level of complexity that helps in the replayability. You can get as deep as you want, mastering all of the details to play the hardest levels of the game, or you can jump in yours or someone else's game and just kill zombies. This game caters to all. (42:02) We discussed the strongest and most valuable items in the game to help you survive, (45:02) including what items to have in your backpack at all times (45:26) and what stuff should be sold.

    Now that FastFret and SeanGeek are both playing hours of the multiplatform hit State of Decay 2, we have come upon various tips and tricks, strategies, best practices, and overall understanding of how best to beat the game (over and over again). This game has replayability written all over it. We cover lots of ground, so here is the breakdown of this episode and the stuff we covered: (2:08) Pull up your radio and call in for assistance in various capacities, primarily with Prestige Points. How do you get them and what are they good for? And what other things can you call in? (7:31) Red Talon are a faction within the game series, and in this iteration, you can play as Red Talon members in the Daybreak mode. Gaining Prestige Points spills over in the Campaign portion of the game, which allows recruiting Red Talon into your Community. We explain how. (8:25) Outposts are extensions of your Base and can provide much needed assistance, in more ways than are immediately apparent. Learn how we use Outposts in the game to maximize resource gathering, making sure your base is well protected, and how having a floating outpost makes everything better. (10:38) Your Base has a number of spots that yield different results to your Community. What are the best Facilities your Base needs? (12:00) How do Skills in the game work and what happens when they level? (13:39) Your Base is set up with some Facilities, but did you know you can Modify each of them? (14:34) Finishing the Game is not the end. What happens when you beat State of Decay 2 and why would you play again? (16:35) Special Skills really add a layer to the game. What do they do? (21:32) What makes the game the most unique is the Cooperative Multiplayer, which is unique to the game. We have never seen the like before. What are the advantages? (24:15) Daybreak is a whole other section of the game, often referred to as Horde Mode. We go into detail on this game mode. (25:26) There are numerous little touches spread out through the game. These signatures tell other stories in this world and we share a couple of them. (29:37) Vehicle Upgrades change your vehicle from a regular car to a souped up zombie killing machine. We go into detail on upgrades. (30:42) The Enclaves on the map can help you in various ways. As long as you help them, they can help you. (32:08) Always bring another member of your Community with you on missions. It doubles your carrying capacity. We explain how to make the best use of bringing a companion on missions. (34:39) Choosing a Leader sets up a variety of missions in the game. Which should you choose? Remember that each leader type gets their own story. Which of the four types will you play? (37:40) Making Ammo can help your Community last a long time. You might run out of ammo, but you can make more with the right Facilities and Mods. (39:06) Each Leader type gets you different things in the game. Here is a quick runthrough of what each gets you. (39:50) As easy as the game is to get into, there is a level of complexity that helps in the replayability. You can get as deep as you want, mastering all of the details to play the hardest levels of the game, or you can jump in yours or someone else's game and just kill zombies. This game caters to all. (42:02) We discussed the strongest and most valuable items in the game to help you survive, (45:02) including what items to have in your backpack at all times (45:26) and what stuff should be sold. (48:28) We also discuss Scent Blocker, trunk space vs seating in vehicles, the Independence Pack, (50:48) and the Independence Pack Vehicles. stateofdecay2 #xbox #crossplatform #pcgaming Website: www.seanmcginity.ca Meet The Geeks: http://mtgcomic.thecomicseries.com/ @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @toddgeek on Twitter @fastfretfingers on Instagram @ToddGeeks Tech Talk on Facebook @therealmeetthegeeks on Instagram @podioanthq @mbpodfest

This spills into SeanGeek's own trope that he uses in all of his games that started with El Tigre, and followed along in every campaign with El Tigre's creator: the Tori Spelling trope. (40:37) Just what is Shane working on these days? Meet Sham, Shane's new creation (41:42). We discuss Shane's most prized piece of memorabilia and just what happened with his action figure collection?

    Shane Welin is back and we cover some of our favorite board games including Splendor (1:41), Talisman (4:00), Space Alert and Star Wars Risk (6:40). Excalibur and Captain Britain? Of course we talk about it! (10:47) One of the legendary Keycon moments was the whole grain skit between Shane and SeanGeek. So just what was that skit exactly and why do they still talk about it? (17:22) Many of us grew up on the comedy that was Eddie Murphy's Delirious and the jokes contained within that legendary standup comedy has been ingrained in all of our daily lives. The three talk about the indelible impression it left on them. (18:49) Shane's connection to the show was his old show Rum Powered Reviews which saw Shane reviewing his vast collection of toys. But it doesn't stop there. Shane shares some memorabilia items he has. (20:52) We also talk gaming and music through the pandemic, and how using Zoom or other related programs just isn't the same.

    (1:08) This week, we have brought in Shane Welin. Shane once hosted a show called Rum Powered Reviews, which this very Podcast spun out from. Shane is here to talk about his friendship with SeanGeek, and to meet the one and only FastFretFingers. (2:56) We start off with some stories about Keycon, Manitoba's premier Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary Convention, including each of their very firsts, including the infamous duet Shane and SeanGeek did together. (13:55) We talk about our health, SeanGeek's injury rehabilitation, Shane's medical issues he is slamming to the curb, DDP Yoga, the perfect French Onion Soup and the brothers' dad, and dive deep into cast iron pans, maintaining them, and the perfect way to cook bacon. The boys also cover some video games including Fallout (38:08), State of Decay (39:21), coop gaming (41:10), and Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime (42:58). Yes, you may want to check out Rum Powered Reviews, but unfortunately that ship has sailed. Will that content ever return to the web? But in the meantime, Shane's latest web presence is with a Muppet called Sham that does some pretty interesting stuff on Tic Toc.

    Episode 316 – HU SpinKicks 1 Ninja Zelda and Some Wagakki

    With Special guests CoreyGeek (from the Geekspin Podcast) and Thomas Carpenter (from the High Frequency Kicks Podcast). Thomas brings in some new, strange music to our Podcast. You may not have heard of everything we cover in the episode, so check the links to each of the music videos and open your ears (and eyes) to some different music you need to check out, featuring traditional instruments with mainstream ones. (7:33) We lead the show off with Ninja Sex Party, an incredibly talented duo with impeccable musical chops. The first song is about their singer talking to the younger version of himself, featuring, you know, that kid from Stranger Things. Ninja Sex Party – Daddy Don't You Know https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT8cX2-_7pQ (9:28) And because the last song was such a great romp, we did one more from Ninja Sex Party called Mansion Party. Ninja Sex Party - Mansion Party https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNoafUU4Ikw Next is a spin off group of Ninja Sex Party, featuring some Rooster Teeth peeps. Star Bomb's song is about an inappropriate creep in Nintento's Zelda games. (19:16) Star Bomb – Best Zelda Rap Ever https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0m9QUoW5KnY (23:52) And because we are nerds, we dove headlong into a talk about Zelda, and (28:04) talk about the Nintendo Switch. (31:52) Gregorian throat singing? Traditional instruments? The HU has all that and more, including a banging bass and drums and this beautifully shot video. The HU – Yuve Yuve Yu https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v4xZUr0BEfE (37:36) And because throat singing is so close to metal in some ways, we also watched their cover of Metallica. The HU - Sad But True https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpxA_ZxGX_M (39:32) SeanGeek and FastFret are both East Coasters and were raised on Celtic music, a love that Thomas has always had. So what happens when bagpipes mix with a sludgy sound? You get the Sidh. The Sidh – Iridium https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amJ_WLmOKS0 (43:28) Next up is a Japanese band called Wagakki. They play traditional Japanese instruments, with lush production meshing with modern music, and insane visuals. This 8 person band features two drummers and a number of different stringed instruments and even a wind instrument that would slay any and every Kenny G. The video chosen shows just how big this band is and how insane the musicians are. Just look at that crowd. Wagakki – Homura + Akatsuki no Ito / 1st Japan Tour 2015 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ponTbDDMYjw (53:04) SeanGeek adds his own to the list with his favorite all time performer, the funky That 1 Guy. Unconventional to the point that he built his own instrument called “The Magic Pipe”, this DYI instrument emulates a guitar, bass, drums, with tight songwriting and impeccable timing. That 1 Guy – Mustaches https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0XHt32UVqLk (58:34) And because we did not get enough of Ninja Sex Party, we also watched one more from the guys called Welcome To My Parents, an ode to Danny Sexbang's sexy home (which happens to be his parent's house – because, duh, he still lives at home) and the stealthy Ninja Brian. Ninja Sex Party's - Welcome to my Parent's House https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YXUWWZJXpE (1:00:05) After this great offering of some great tunes, the gang discusses the failings of modern radio, and the 5 artists that get played, there is still some great music out there. These bands prove that you can still go out there and be original, and still make great music, regardless of how niche it may be. (1:04:22) Sign Off (Due to technical issues, we lost CoreyGeek after about 15 minutes of the show.) Special shout out to @ witchpolicefm and Jarett from Comics Factory. #music #ninjasexparty #starbomb #wagakki #thehu #sidh #that1guy Website: www.seanmcginity.ca Meet The Geeks: http://mtgcomic.thecomicseries.com/ @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @toddgeek on Twitter @fastfretfingers Support this podcast
