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

Our guest this week is a Vice President named Tom. Not only is he a VP; He's the VP of Jeff Mach Events. For those who are unfamiliar with Jeff Mach Events, they're the people behind The Steampunk World's Fair, The Geek Creation Show, The Wicked Faire, The International Steampunk City etc etc. Essentially they're the people that make good times happen.
Tom came on this week to talk about two events in particular: The Wicked Faire and Voltaire's Wicked NecroComicCon. Why was he telling us all about them you ask? Well it's simple: They're both happening THIS VERY WEEKEND. If you've ever been curious about either of these events this is your chance to really get a feel for what you'd be experiencing.
Also, I'd be a jerk if I didn't point out how amazing last week's episode was. Huge thanks to Joe, Colin, and Brett for hijacking the podcast and giving us the week off. Here's to another 100 episodes of pure awesome.

Alas, it's finally here - The OMV 100th Episode Spectacular. Not that I can take any sort of credit for this milestone, and as much as hearty congratulations are due our heroes Jayare and Alex, even more so I think are thank you's. These two bastich's consistently give us the gift of Nerd. Every week we can pop on our headphones and listen to our friends talk about the things we love, have loved and things that we should love. I mention it in this episode, but it bears emphasis: having OMV is like hanging out with Alex and Jayare whenever you want. Just toss on an old episode and it's like being a wallflower at your friends house while they drink soda and talk about Marvel vs Capcom. And these guys have done it for 100 consecutive f***ing weeks. They deserve celebrating, and a fair amount of ass-kissery is in order. This episode itself is an OMV Fangasm, and it's as much about you, oh Constant Listener, as it is about our hosts. Name-dropping is in abundance this week, as well as callbacks to the past and several teases for the possible future. Alex and Jayare always give us a podcast to listen to, and now with the help of The Art Mercenary Brett Kelly and The Irreplaceable Joe, we finally get to give THEM a show to listen to.

A while back our friend Ryan hit us up and was like "oh hey guys. I have these friends who do this thing and you should check them out." We checked them out. We watched their videos. We asked them to come on the show. They came on the show. It was awesome.
Zack and Kyla are the duo behind Getting Your Nerd On. They make videos, record podcasts, and make fun of the Xbox One so obviously we had to have them join us. Originally shooting single-take videos on an iPhone; in just a few months time Zack and Kyla have evolved into content machines with almost 250 subscribers on YouTube. Go here and check out their channel. Also like them on Facebook and follow their Twitch channel so you can watch them stream videogames and deal with perverts.
With the Super Bowl happening this past Sunday we got to see lots of fun new trailers for fun new movies. Extended/new previews for Winter Soldier, Amazing Spider-Man and even the new Transformers flick all aired and it would be putting it lightly to say I'm really, really........really excited. I know the general idea of a trailer/preview is to make you want to see the film regardless of how terrible the final product might be. Despite being well aware of this; I still can't wait. I mean honestly, if Optimus Prime wielding a giant sword while riding Grimlock like his noble steed doesn't at least get your attention then perhaps you've set your expectations a bit too high. Say what you will about the Transformers movies. At the end of the day there's a good chance we'll all be there on opening day praying there isn't a Shia LaBeouf cameo.
