TOTLB 101 Doyle’s Requiem

Holy crap guys! Can you believe that we made it passed episode 100 haha!? Well here we are into our first episode of the second season! Yes, I know the seasons are long, but who cares!!

Our #popcultureclassic for this episode is the 2000 psychological thriller, Memento! We talk about how crazy the plot is, how confusing it is, and whether or not it would be boring, if we watched the movie in the correct order, instead of the mixed up order that is shown in the movie itself. Our interview with Jorja Fox about this movie was TOTLB S22! Listen to Jorja tell us her perspective on the movie, and what it was like filming! Gabe tells us a little bit about his love for Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist during his “old man” segment, plus we get to talk about all of the news that happened in the last two weeks!

Remember, you can ALWAYS let us know what you think! We can only think of so many things to talk about every other week, and would LOVE to get some feedback and ideas from all of you out there who are listening!! You can send mp3s and email to our email address. Also, join the conversations on our Facebook Page and Twitter Page. If you have good feedback, please leave it for us on iTunes and Stitcher!!

TOTLB S19 YouTube Originals – Origin

Before making our trip down to Comic Con International, very little was known about the Youtube Originals show, Origin. This trailer debuted while we were there!

The show follows Lana & Logan, played by Natalia Tena and Tom Felton! Not much is still known about this show, but it follows a group of people who are stranded on a space ship, heading towards a far planet!! You witness everyone trying to cope and help with the situation, while also finding out that one of the passengers is definitely not what they seem!!

The show sounds awesome, and we had the opportunity to sit in on the Comic Con International panel!! Watching the actors speak about the show got me excited to watch!! Hopefully you all will watch, and listen to the episode!!

Comic Con International – Day 1 – Make “Fuck You” Music

Comic Con International – Day 1 – Make Fuck You Music

I usually wake up at like four thirty in the morning to get ready for work, so waking up at 6am Pacific time was a little bit of a treat.  The sky was grey and dreary when I got up this morning, but man did that kind of visual mood pass away as the day went on.  

So I’m not going to give you a full rundown of the things that I did today.  There were a lot of interviews and a couple of panels but amongst all of that (that will come out on forthcoming episodes of Thinking Outside the Long Box) were these really big moments.

One of the first things that I did today was go to the From the Bridge panel.  The big takeaway was, “We win.” All those years of getting called a nerd or a geek, of getting beat up because you played D&D, or whatever.  That all paid off, because now we are the ones that are the dominant force for entertainment and pop-culture, and that is kind of a crazy thought. At that panel, Nichelle Nichols was awarded the Inkpot award, which has a list of recipients that is a who’s who of genre work.  This couldn’t go to a more deserving a wonderful person.

YouTube has some amazing original programing coming out with the shows Impulse and Origin, but at those panels I saw Tom Felton (one of the leads in Origin) take some time out of his day to be an amazing human being.  At the end of his panel a woman in a Rascal holding a Draco Malfoy Pop rode up to the little divider (that I had just been shooed away from) and started calling out “Tom, Tom.” He saw her, and much to his handler’s chagrin came over to sign her pop and chat with her for a second.  

Moments of kindness and humanness aren’t what celebrity are typically known for, but you would (well you probably wouldn’t but the average person would be) amazed how kind celebrity in this world are.

Got a chance to sit (poolside) with Pia Guerra and chat with her about her book of political comics coming out with Image called “Me the People.”  She and I have very similar politics, and it was refreshing to hear that people out there are still pretty angry about the direction this country has taken, but that they still manage to hold out hope that we can right the shit.  What a kind and empathetic person (surprise), Pia was.

Finally.  I got to sit in on a small press conference with Rick Remender about his upcoming show Deadly Class.  Our readers/listeners will obviously know this as the TV adaptation of Remender’s phenomenal comic book of the same title, and from the sounds of it the show is in good hands at SYFY…his. This conversation was about a lot more though.  It was about music, politics, and how we seem to have lost track of what rock and roll is all about.  It is about doing it all yourself and making music that just says fuck you.

So you have a task today!  Go find your favorite Fuck You music and play it loud.  It’s what Rick Remender would want you to do!
