That’s really the only explanation for this this. You can see why I say that by checking out my writeup on Madam Satan over at Needless Things. And, yeah, it really is a real film no matter how strange you think the description gets as it goes along.

Today we hit that magic moment. Today we cross that mark. !00 days to go to Dragon Con.

All over the world the cosplayers are looking at their calendars, looking at their still in-progress cosplays, looking around their studios and piles of material, and whimpering quietly.

Or not so quietly.

See you all in about 100 days.

100 Days

If you like motion picture score soundtracks, you need to check out La-La Land Records. I’ll tell you about them here at Needless Things.
Visiting La-La Land

As I explained here in the first blog piece that I wrote about this topic, this partly grew out of my noticing that a lot of people who were craving shows (although usually with the idea of AM/FM radio shows) that catered to geek interests were often the ones who were completely unaware that there were a lot of very good shows out there in the form of podcasts. Not only are they good, but some are every bit as polished and professional as what you might expect from something on over the airwaves radio. Yeah, some are nothing more than guys sitting around a table chatting, and there’s nothing wrong with that when the chat is entertaining and informative, but some of them have all the bells and whistles that one might find with a “professional” show on the airwaves.

It also partly grew out of my attitude of what being a geek is. If you find something you like, if you find something you enjoy, tell others about it and spread the word. So that’s what I’m doing. However, before starting on a new batch of shows, I actually want to look at a couple of things going on with some I touched on in the first post on the topic.


One of the great goofy films that will likely never see a proper release on home video at this point. A shame too since it has a lot of fun with some of the so-bad-they’re-good films of yesteryear. My look at it over on Needless Things.
