Opinions May Vary

Hey hey!

Exciting news! Brett Kelley was able to join us again via Skype to help us announce the winner of our special 1,000th download giveaway! Last week we gave you all information on how to win a custom Brett Kelley sketch and after putting all the names in a hat we were able to draw our winner! We’re crazy excited to contact them and see what they want Brett to draw. Thanks to everyone who took part in our giveaway. Hopefully there will be many more to come!

Aside from giving away amazing Brett art we also took some time this week to talk about the San Diego Comic Con, Ron Perlman and his amazing contribution to Make A Wish, and of course; the weekly question!

Big thanks to Brett for joining us again and also for volunteering to help us out with our contest! This show just wouldn’t be the same without that Kelley charm!

Until next week,

                Jayare, Alex, & Brett

Hey everyone!

Thanks to some incredible advancements in technology Mr. Brett Kelley was able to join us for this episode all the way from the cape via Skype! Justin is away helping out a friend in Maine and luckily Brett was more than willing to help us out!

This week we discussed the recent news on the Javits Center in New York City, the "zombie" attacks happening throughout the country, and what it would be like to own a movie prop from some of our favorite movies.

Also we went into uncharted territory this week and talked about some of our favorite musical artists who are coming to town. By the way, if you've never heard MC Chris, Powerglove, or Steam Powered Giraffe then you need to get onto iTunes immediately and check them out!

Once again we'd like to send a huge thank you to Brett for helping us ou this week. Our butt's were saved yet again! Be sure to check out BK Endeavours on deviantart and blogspot!

Hello again!

This week we have the ever reliable Joe back with us while Justin takes some time off. Joe was kind enough to stop by last minute after we had some scheduling conflicts with Mr. Brett Kelley but no worries, Brett will be on asap!

After briefly touching on the leaked identity of the DC character announcing their homosexuality, we took the rest of the episode to discuss our various guilty pleasures when it comes to comics, movies/tv, and videogames.  It is pretty safe to say our responses were interesting to say the least.

If you have your own responses be sure to let us know what they are on our Facebook page! Go to facebook.com/opinionsmayvary and give us your guilty comic/movie/tv/videogame pleasures!

Once again we'd like to give a huge thank you to Joe for dropping by on such short notice. You saved our butts yet again!

Until next time!

          Jayare, Alex, & Joe.

Hey ya'll!

We're back with the 10th episode of Opinions May Vary! We made it to double digits! Happy times!!

Anyways....Justin is off this week to get some much needed R&R so we brought in our good friend Joe to discuss this week's topics with us!

Join us this week as we discuss DC Comics' recent announcement that they are going to be making one of their heroes a homosexual.  Will it affect the fanbase? Will it bring in new customers? Who is it going to be????

The question of the week was a simple yet deep one: Who is your ultimate fanboy character. Meaning what character do you go crazy for regardless of story or artist? What character will you ALWAYS stand by even during tough times?

Next is some talk about videogames. We haven't discussed videogames much and Joe thought it was a subject that needed to be touched on seeing as he and Jr have been playing them together for probably over a decade. Needless to say he was definitely right. What kind of nerds are we if we don't even talk videogames???

Closing the show is some talk about webcomics.  All of us are huge fans of webcomics and we took some time to discuss our favorite popular and more unknown comics.  Which ones are your favorite? Be sure to check them out for some quick 3 panel hilarity.

Also be sure to check us out on Facebook at facebook.com/opinionsmayvary and keep your ears to the ground for news on Joe's podcast which will hopefully be launching soon!

Until next week,

                  Jayare, Alex, & Joe.

Hey Folks!

We're finally back after a slight delay due to a pesky case of the stomach bug rampaging through the studio. No worries though, we pulled it together and got your weekly fix of OMV ready for listening pleasure!

This week we kick it off with some Avengers box office updates. Will they be able to topple Avatar?? We certainly hope so...

Also, we took some time this week to touch on the latest television renewals. Should The Office be put down? Is 30 Rock getting stale? Can anyone touch Community?? Comic Book Men??? Seriously??

We follow the television talk with the weekly question: What comic/tv show did you enjoy most that was cut off early and what comic/tv show do you think should have quit while it was ahead? Be sure to tell us what you think on our facebook page! www.facebook.com/opinionsmayvary.

Lastly we end with Alex telling us about his recent trip to the land of Steampunk and his upcoming return to Boston for the Zombie March! Silly Alex. Always "involving" himself with "fun activities".

Anyways...we're glad we were finally able to get the episode done and we hope it pleases your ears to the fullest extent.

See you sunday!

         Jayare, Justin, & Alex

Hey everyone,

Right off the bat I'm going to start with this: SPOILER ALERT!!!

The Avengers came out this weekend and we saw it...so, of course we are going to talk about it.  If you haven't seen The Avengers yet I recommend skipping ahead to about 30 minutes into the episode to try to avoid any major spoilers.  You have been warned!!

Aside from that, enjoy some Free Comic Book Day chat, the question of the week discussing who we'd love to see engage in battle on the big screen and Alex took some time to talk about his recent outing during the Run For Your Lives 5k in Boston, Mass.

Oh, and be sure to listen for a special unexpected guest caller who had just got out of The Avengers and had some questions for Justin. I'll give you a hint: He's kind of a legend in Western Mass.

We hope you enjoy the episode and be sure to check us out on facebook at facebook.com/opinionsmayvary. Oh, and if you still haven't seen The Avengers, do yourself a favor and see it. You can thank us later!

Best,

       Jayare, Justin, & Alex.

RIP MCA

We're back this week with a huge surprise!

Just hours before we were set to record this week's episode, the one and only Brett Kelley showed up and we didn't hesitate to ask him to make a 2nd appearance on our show!

This week we took a break from comics to discuss the summer movie madness that is about to ensue.  Join us as we weigh in on some of the ones we're most excited for and some that probably shouldn't have been made in the first place...

Once again we'd like to give a huge thank you to Brett for joining us especially when he has to drive 3+ hours home tonight. Be sure to check out BK Endeavors on Blogspot and Deviant Art. His work is absolutely incredible.

See you next week!

Hello again!

This week's episode is a special one as we had our very good friend Jon York as a special guest! Jon is visiting us from Florida and was kind enough to be a part of our Post-Boston Comic Con episode. He added great insight and humor that only Jon could provide and we were pumped to have him on the show!


As I said before, this episode is all about the recent Boston Comic Con and all the experiences we had so be sure to get comfortable, be ready to laugh, and enjoy!


Thanks again to Jon for taking time out of his busy vacation schedule to record with us. New England isn't the same without you, Jon!

Best,

         Jayare, Justin, Alex, & Jon.

We're back with another episode of Opinions May Vary!

This week is special as we are going to be attending the Boston Comic Con this coming Saturday so we decided to dedicate the entire episode to the convention.

We start out with some basic convention info. Who we're excited to see, what we're looking forward to and such.

We continue with a topic we've been eager to discuss since we started this project: The Do's and Dont's of attending a convention. With years of experience under our collective belts we've gained a knowledge of Comic Conventions and we took some time to share our thoughts on some issues.

We follow with the question of the week: Our personal best/worst moments of conventions past. The answers are interesting to say the least...

Finally we finish up with the inevitable "dud sketch" discussion. As with every sketch comes a level of risk. Every now and then...you're going to get a dud. Listen in as we talk about some of our past duds and how to avoid getting one of your own.

That about wraps up the Boston Comic Con episode. Be sure to tune in next week and join us for our post-convention discussion. Also, we're going to have a very special guest with us: Mr. Jon York! It is going to be a great time and you won't want to miss it!

Love always,

         Jayare, Justin, & Alex.

Welcome back everyone!

Join us for Episode 4 of Opinions May Vary!

This week we dive right into comics with some Avengers vs. X-Men discussion. Can Marvel make its way back to the top of the comic charts??

Next, we take some time to discuss the first comics we ever read/the comic that got us in to reading comics.  Be warned....we definitely date ourselves with our answers...

Finally we wrap it up with the latest news on the original art from Walking Dead #2 selling on eBay and touch on what art we've purchased/what we're anxious to buy but might not be able to afford...

Be sure to join us next week for the Boston Comic Con special! With the convention right around the corner we're going to take some time to discuss what we're most excited for plus a few tips on what to do and not to do at conventions. Always remember: Don't be that guy!!

Also, big shout out to Riley Stark for designing our logo for us! Her work is amazing. Be sure to check her out on Facebook and Deviant Art.

See you next week!
