Listen to EOL Episode 6: A Place for Everything

 

Welcome back to the show that reminds you of all that geeky stuff in your attic or storage room. This month we managed to cash in the very large check that was offered to us, virtually of course, by our 3rd Chair mr. kevin Reeves. Somehow fake money like this doesn’t seem as cool as that found in the monopoly games of old. Did you know that that board game in its modern day version uses a debit card instead of multi colored printed money? That just seems wrong. Just like the information that was issued forth from our friend the Fact Sphere.

 

Abomination:

Its time to sit “Baby in a corner” again with a planned “Dirty Dancing’ remake

And could an update of “Point Break” be any good without the master Thesbian Mr. Reeves?

Robots make us sandwiches and popcorn.

We also recommend some movies, like “Bicentennial Man”, to prepare you for the social upheavel to come.

 “Westworld” is another film that will have you worried about any animated motion things at your next trip to the amusement park

And the 80’s classic “Short Circuit” reminds us that robots aren’t all bad. 

 

Nom, Nom, Nom!

The homework assignment was anything Cinnamon

Ranger recommends Bigelow Cinnamon Stick Tea

Ranger wasn’t kidding about the size of the Carnival magic nor the tons of food on this boat either!

Between The Covers:

Dark Tower Update, Ranger started book 6 just in time for Book 8 to be announced

We also briefly talk about the release of a sample chapter for Book Six of “song of Ice and Fire” series

Our previous assignment, that Ranger didn’t read due to the Dark Tower, was  “Neverwhere”, by Neil Gaiman. That means he has to play catch up by reading that and our new homework, “Altered Carbon” by  Richard K.Morgan

We also discussed Clive Barker’s Imajica.

Did Ranger’s mention of “Boot Hill” and “Gamaworld” bring back memories? Then check out this look at TSR Games of the past.

We promised a better definition of steampunk and cyberpunk than the Rockstar’s rambling diatribe, so check out The definition of “Steampunk” and The Definition of Cyberpunk.

Ranger suggests that you can view Steampunk higharchy in motion if you watch “The Guild” Season 5
