Opinions May Vary (comics movies & videogames)

Bob was our guest this week! Bob worked with Kt, Jared, and Alex on Girl in the Basement and he told us all about his experiences makin' sweet sweet movies. He also helped us kick off "The Pitch". If you don't know what The Pitch is you should have yourself a listen. I mean, you should listen either way. You probably won't regret it. Probably.

Anyways.

I just got back from having a needle jammed into my skin for a few hours so I hope you don't mind if I keep it short this week. In case you need your weekly fill of blog ramblings I'll leave you with this: Frank Miller is the best thing to happen to comics since Jack Kirby. Discuss.

March 19th marked our 2 year anniversary of doing this show. I don't want to get all sappy and sentimental because I feel like I just did that after episode 100. I can only imagine there's a limit to how much "omg thank you" posts you all can endure.

I do have to take some time and acknowledge how much work Alex put into this episode. The man has been working for months; combing through hours and hours of audio looking for the best moments and memorable flashquestions. I'll admit I was skeptical of the montage idea at first. I was nervous it would come of as repetitive and long-winded but Alex was persistent. The persistence paid off because the compilations he put together blew my mind. If there were ever a time for Alex to drop the mic, it would be right now.

One last thing and I'm done. I need to thank everyone who came on the show this year as OMV would be nothing without its guests. There's only so many times I can talk about how excited I am for something. Lucky for me we have the best guests in the history of guests consistently bailing me out.  You are all awesome and thank you so much.

Guys, you're going to want to check this episode out. Hard.

While at Wicked Faire/Voltaire's Wicked NecroComicon this past weekend we had the opportunity to chat with the guys from Super Art Fight and we even convinced a couple of them to come on our show and let us inflate their egos a bit.
If you're wondering what exactly a "Super Art Fight" is then you should probably check out their website. Or this video Alex shot of their show. Or their Facebook page. Or even this Adam WarRock song. Any of those sites will give you pretty much all the information you'll need; but if you want the best possible explanation with silly accents thrown in every now and then, you should tune in this week and get some education on The Greatest Live Art Competition in the Known Universe.

Oh, and Alex and I give our wrap-up thoughts on the conventions like usual. That part is pretty sweet, too.
