Besides making rad films and being an all-around great person our pal Jared Skolnick has a knack for generating discussion. Every so often he'll post a simple question (usually focused on cinema) that prompts friends and followers to respond with their respective choices. Something along the lines of "Best soundtrack to accompany a fight scene" will garner dozens of responses, video clips, and side conversations and in a world full of people always yelling at each other on the internet, it's a fantastic relief.
A few weeks ago Jared posted the following statement:
See what I mean? Simple. It's not even a question but it's something that you immediately want to dive into and figure out. A 16 word sentence resulted in an episode almost an hour and a half long. That's longer than some of our multi-day convention review episodes. So yeah, like I said: Jared has a knack for generating discussion.
We're just lucky enough to have a way to record it.

Alright, I suppose I can stop reading Saga long enough to get this uploaded.
Last night Colin made a last minute appearance after flying home from a stay in Ireland so Alex and I could grill him on the differences in nerd culture between two lands that have a massive body of water between them and it was fascinating.
Afterwards Colin and Alex engaged in some intense games of Alex's customized version of "Guess Who?". In what can only be described as a madhouse of intense competitive children's gameplay only one man was able to come out with the victory. In case you were wondering: It was livestreamed on our Facebook page and the video is somewhere up there for you to check out.

It has come and it has gone. Last weekend Brett, Alex and I made our yearly venture down to New Jersey for the 2017 Steampunk World's Fair and, as usual, it was fantastic.
Sitting here a week after the show, having returned back to the real world and going to work all week I still find myself reliving different moments and humming tunes that have been stuck in my head for days now. It's not easy to describe the World's Fair to someone who has never been before and most of the time I just tell my friends they have to go. The just need to go and experience it for themselves. For those that don't have the opportunity to do so, I like to think our recaps do a decent job of immersing people into the SPWF experience but really it's like the old saying goes:
You have to see it to believe it.
Check out this week's episode for our recap and click HERE for some pictures that we snapped.

So there was this time when we were on our way to the Steampunk World's Fair and I realized I forgot to upload the most recent episode so we had to turn around and head back to my house so I could keep our streak going.
That time was right now.
Brett and Alex are literally standing in front of me waiting for this to finish uploading and it's great.
Anyway, tomorrow is free comic book day. Go get some comics.
We are off to the Fair. Expect lots of talk about the Fair in the coming days.
