TOTLB 099 Not At This Table Z2

Holy crap, we are at episode 99!! This is the calm before the storm that will be our season finale next time!! In this episode, our pop culture classic is the 2005 James McTeigue movie, V For Vendetta! We talk about the similarities from the themes in the movie, to the climate that we see in society today. We also delve into the Alan Moore and Grant Morrison feud, and how they’ve changed the world with their magic…….

We also speak with Ryan North, who has worked on other projects (Adventure TimeThe Unbeatable Squirrel Girl , etc.), but for this interview we are talking about his time travel manual, How To Invent Everything: A Survival Guide For The Stranded Time TravelerIf you should ever find yourself trapped in the past, THIS is the book that you will need, in order to rebuild society. Imagine that your time machine brakes down in the past, but they are so complicated to fix, it’s easier to rebuild society……sounds insane, but this could be the book that saves your life!! Listen Ryan speak about this hilarious/informative book, and tell us about the time that he got stuck in a hole with his dog!

TOTLB 098 HOJ Moves

Two episodes until our 100th episode, season 1 finale! It has been a long time coming, and a lot of years in the making, but we are finally closer and closer to an awesome milestone! But for now, onto episode 98!

No interviews, for this episode, just pure hilarity!! We are at the Hall of Justice Comics and Collectibles, for what ended up being one of it’s final days! As, during the episode, we learned that Jon was picking up, and moving his shop to a bigger location! It’s only a few seconds away, but it affords him MUCH more space!! We’re happy for him, and get to congratulate him onto his next ventures!!

Also, we obviously speak about all of the news in entertainment as well. We speak a lot about the comic books that Gabe has been reading, and some of the comic books that Jon/Dominic are excited about coming out. Also, one of our Patreon supporters (Chad) offers up some chili peppers for us to try as we do the episode. It’s a funny way to end the show, and it’s a fitting way to end our last episode at the current Hall Of Justice Comics & Collectibles! It will be missed, but there were many great times had there!

TOTLB 097 The Three Amigos

Three episodes away from the magical 100th episode and we are having a blast getting there!! Episode 97 is back to normal form, discussing all of the best in entertainment news. Though this episode does take a darker tone, as we do discuss a couple of controversial topics! PLUS we have two amazing interviews!

DJ Bryant joins the show to speak about his book, Unreal City! Unreal city contains five different stories about relationships; Echoes Into Eternity, Evelyn Dalton-Hoyt, The Yellow Knife Retrospective, and Objet D’art. This is a crazy story that plays on the fine line of hate, in correlation with other emotions! The characters seem to always find themselves in different life predicaments!

Jose Pimienta also joins the show to talk to us about his kickstarter, Suncatcher!  Suncatcher tells the story of a young musician from Mexicali, her figures out that the soul of her dead grandfather is trapped in his old guitar! She must find a way to free her grandfather, by playing the song on the guitar, that he never wrote, plus traverse her young life as a musician! Jose AKA Joe Pi, we might during a panel at Denver Comic Con 2018. He is a very eloquent speaker, and his ideas come from life experiences. Whether they’re in the story, or the setting, he always is able to put something forward that is good, and unique! If you can donate something to the kickstarter, definitely consider donating to Jose!

TOTLB 096 Can You Find It

We are FINALLY back at our home base!! Through comic con season, and getting back to our roots!! On this episode, we did a LOT of catching up on Marvel television. We gave ourselves two weeks to catch up on all of the Marvel TV that we could, and we did our best to speak about their latest season, and give them reviews. It’s not everything, but hey, we tried!

Allison O’Toole has now been on the show, I believe four times (I could be wrong). Well Allison is back with “Called Into Being: A Celebration of Frankenstein.” With Gabe being such a Frankenstein fan, of course this was a very fun interview!! Celebrating the 200 year anniversary of when Mary Shelley published Frankenstein, you will find over fifteen different comics/essays written all in celebration! This is not a retelling, but more of an exploration of “the places were our lives and literature connect.” With a couple weeks left in the kickstarter, help Allison bring this amazing set of stories to life!! Whether you call him Frankenstein, or “The Monster,” there will always be entertaining stories to tell!!

TOTLB 095 Colorado Springs Comic Con 2018

And one more Colorado Springs Comic Con has come and gone! After the last two comic cons earlier in the year, Colorado Springs was a refreshing change of pace!! Much more relaxed, AND we did mostly coverage of panels, which is new to us! BUT, first things first, we have an interview to start off the show!

We spoke with Russell Nohelty from the upcoming anthology, Cthulhu Is Hard To Spell! You KNOW that we (especially Gabe) are HUGE fans of books like this, and we think you all will get a kick out of it! If you love Lovecraft THIS is the anthology to support on Kickstarter! This book is not a typical Lovecraft style story, and revolves much more around these beautiful/horrendous creatures! With seven days left in the kickstarter, don’t miss out on your chance to support this team, we will be!

The main bulk of this show is our rundown of the panels that we did while we were in attendance! After the main show, listen to our floor interviews with some of our favorite stalwarts at Colorado Springs Comic Con; Frankie Serna, Jessica Barnes, AC Canales, with new to the show Babs Webb, and to end the episode, we have an awesome interview with Ron Marz!!

Just like always, we try to bring you the best in the entertainment world, with our funny spin! The long awaited return of our #popcultureclassic segment is here!! This episode we speak about 1985 film, The Last Dragon! Do you remember the movie? Is it as great as the boys think it is? Let us know!!

PLUS we have an awesome interview with the creative team behind HexComix! You’ll hear Lisa, Lynly, and Kelly Sue tell us all about their journey. They NEVER even set out to make a comic book, but sold out at their first show! I promise it’s a great comic book, their story is even cooler, and the team is entertaining as hell!!

TOTLB S20 The O’Halloran Experience

That first picture, was the end of what might go down in history, as the best (or one of the best) episodes that Thinking Outside the Longbox has done! We started off the day at Colorado Springs Comic Con, not being invited (or forgotten if you ask Frankie) to a low key house party. Once we were invited (after a pity invite), our friend Jack “Smitty” Smith told us that he would be bringing along famed Clerks star Brian O’Halloran! Of course, we’re big fans:

Upon arrival, Smitty introduced us, and Brian agreed to be on the show. We thought we’d ask him a few questions, talk about a few things, and let him move on with his night. Then, this happened:

I don’t know if you can tell or not, but that is Brian taking his first shot of the night with our crew. One shot would turn into three bottles of various whiskeys!! All of which, would culminate in the best audio, in one hour, that we may have ever had!! Brian was such a genuinely nice guy, and we can’t thank him enough to have spent some time with us. If you haven’t seen his work (how are you reading this if you haven’t) don’t be a fool, go watch the fucking movies!

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!!

TOTLB S18 Youtube Original – Impulse

I started watching the Youtube “Original,” TV show, Impulse, a little bit before we headed out to Comic Con International!

What a crazy cool idea!! The very first scene in the pilot, sucks you in, without really knowing what is going on!! Two guys fighting, and teleporting, between what seems like an iceberg in the middle of nowhere, and a crowded subway car. It always peaks my interest when the action starts the movie, and every move from then on, represents a step towards knowing what the hell was going on! Starring Maddie Hasson as Henrietta Coles, whom we discover (as does she) has the ability to transport!

The show explores “Henry’s” ability to reconcile her brand new powers, while going through the pain of someone trying to rape her. We had the awesome chance to sit in on the Impulse panel, at Comic Con International! The awesome stars of this show, tell us about the show, and where we go from here!! The actors seemed super pumped about the show, and it resonated through to the audience! Definitely check this out if you haven’t had the chance, and listen to the panel!!

TOTLB 093 Where Are We Going

AND we’re back!! Here is episode 93!! This is the small bit of recording that we did during San Diego Comic Con! Mostly you’ll hear Gabe and Jonthan giving me directions, while being absolutely hilarious all at the same time!! Gabe and Jon watch some random guy clean his whole car with paper towels, and Jon critiques a mural on a wall!! There are also these awesome floor interviews, with these awesome people:

Ray ChouSkies of Fire
Colin & JosephSpirits: The Soul Collector

Our featured interview is absolutely amazing!! We got a few minutes with the guy responsible for saving The Expanse, from the brink of cancellation!!

Cas AnvarThe Expanse
