Guys! Black Panther was SO. GOOD.

We have lots of thoughts. And Dave sits down with Leslie Amegavie, a die-hard Black Panther fan who emigrated to Nova Scotia from Ghana, who has even more thoughts! Leslie saw the movie four times during opening weekend, so he's pretty pumped about it.

The movie was seriously so good. I basically never want to hear anyone speak ever again who doesn't have some sort of African accent.

I can't wait to see it again. In particular, I can't wait to see my new king, M'Baku again.

Mmmmmmm'Baku.

Good job, everyone. You made a great movie.

Oh, and yes. I lost my damn mind at that end credits scene. Of course I did.

Holy smokes I forgot to post this blog post for the episode.

There was a new episode this week! We talk about some superhero stuff that is vaguely related to Valentine's Day!

Here are some pictures of the ridiculous (late) birthday gifts I gave to Dave:

Oh, and hey. If you would like to pre-order my book, you can do so here!

You might like this book if you like:

- adorable underemployed smoothie clerks;
- lonely, undersexed NHL superstars;
- awkward attempts at romantic gestures;
- a man finding the courage to live his life the way he wants to;

This week we are talking about the positive influence that fictional super heroes have had on our lives. 

But first, we are getting in a fight about the Ant-Man and Wasp trailer.

 

You wanna see what made Sebastian Stan laugh? It's this!

He's probably still laughing about it. And obsessing over the witty angel who gifted him with such a delightful joke.

Episode 126 - Scheduling Stress

This week we are talking about scheduling in the comic book industry, and I swear it's more interesting than you would think. I hope so, anyway.

Hillary joins us again to talk about the latest episode of The X-Files. We are also joined by two fighting cats.

We lay down some unpopular opinions about Logan and The Shape of Water, in an effort to lose most of our listeners.

But, I will win you back with this link to Sebastian Stan's Hugo Boss modelling video:

Helllllllllooooo Summer Soldier!

Enjoy the episode. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Podcast - Episode 125: Embarrassing Comic Book Purchases

We are joined by two guests this week to celebrate our 125th epsiode: Hillary Titley and Denzel Noylander. We publicly admit some of our more embarrassing comic book purchases.

Hillary and I came straight from a screening of Call Me By Your Name to record this episode, so we are very distracted.

I mean...

So cute!!!!

Anyway.

This is the little thing I wrote about that 1993 Hockey Digest article. I'll write a follow-up soon about my thoughts on it now that I've read it again. Huge thanks again to Johnathan!!!

Podcast - Episode 124: Fandom!

Hillary joins us again, and I used it as an opportunity for GIRL TALK!!!!!!!

Sort of. Hillary and I are both no strangers to fandom. Dave maybe has a different approach to the properties and creators that he loves. A *normal* approach, some might call it. One that allows you to function in your day to day life without thinking things like "Man, I'll bet Mulder would really hate this bus ride I'm on right now."

Anyway, we have a lot of thoughts about engaging with fandom, as opposed to merely being a fan, and why the fan experiences of a straight white cis male might be different from, y'know, everyone else when it comes to consuming culture.

But we also talk about comic books. And X-Files.

Anyway, LOOK AT DILTON!!!!!
