I promised you all a Superman episode.
I said this would be that episode.
Well...how about in two weeks instead?
Instead, I get a false start, talk about my poor little Guinea Pig Sally, whine a little, talk a bit about some horror stuff, and...I think I yell at a bird...I am not sure what all happens this time to be honest.
but listen anyway. You know, cause I am your great electronic buddy-guy.
And I want to say that the next episode will be this Sunday, but I feel it better we take a wait-see approach. It will be just my semi-weekly RambleRant.
Finsh your week well!

So, as you have noticed, last weeks episode was plagued with audio problems. This is mainly because of memory problems and conflicting programs, but I am working on getting them all fixed. That is part of why this is late. I am still working on things, including setting up the new microphone, so I am hoping that this Sunday I can get things going on schedule without issues.
Thank you for listening and feel free to leave comments.
Tom "T-Bone" Stankus! That is the singer's name!

Dare to go black!
Wonder at my questionable Portuguese skills!
Realize how lucky you are to have me in your life!
Marvel at another set of technical difficulties - Crap!
I talk about my favorite gay shows from RuPaul's Drag Race to Project Runway and stops in between (which may be not in between, now that I think about it.) I finish my rant about House of Leaves. I then dash into Black History Month as best as I can. Blacula, Dwayne McDuffie, Samuel R. Delaney, and as many others as i can recall (although I forgot Gina Torres, darn it!)
I thank you all for everthing and look forward to your comments! And a special thank you to anyone who stuck through the dead-air. Your determination is commendable - go have a cookie.
oh darn it! I think I said Lisbon and I meant Lisboa. Eu sinto muito.

Tuesday instead of Sunday. Not too bad. Had to fix a couple things first...last weeks episode was a mess all around. But now things look like they are settling into shape. This may be the last of the scheduled "short" shows, as from here on out they will just be what they will be.
I quickly ramble about some movie news, my angry rantings about "House of Leaves", Lil' Starro wants to take over the world, and a short short story. Just a normal day in my brain.

I have promised myself that everyone will be included in every part of the learning process that goes into making this podcast, lumps and all. And dang if this one isn't lumpy. Contrary to what it sounds like, there was a plan involved here. I had very good notes. And then they stayed at work. *sigh*

It's the short one! Short podcast, long podcast, repeat. That will be the pattern for a while.
Also, the holiday petit fours are gone, so I guess the diet is goin to be for real. What vegatable dishes do you all have for me?

Last week was a short episode, so this week is long, right? This makes sense to me. (Actually, I might even go to this format for a while. It really seemed to work for me.)
Nothing like starting out like the crazy cat-man. But heck, it could be worse - it could be a houseful of children! Yipes!
But women take the main stage here. What's a gay guy know about women? Plenty. I mean, heck, we're all trying to settle down with Mr. Right, or some close-enough facsimile thereof.
Sexy women of the Original Star Trek show with some admissions tossed in to spice things up. And I apologize ahead of time for the amount of times I say "hot chick". I counted three too many.
Then it is time for comic book women. Such a broad category, but I decide to declare who I think of as the Queen of the Female Spin-off heroes. Here's a hint - think Gail Simone. Or think sexy 60's. Either way could get you there.
And onward to a bit of respectable talk about my choice of Queen of Sci-fi/Fantasy writing. This part comes with a homework assignment, so be prepared. (I can let you know that some of her work is available for free download for Amazon Kindle, so I am certain we can all find something with minimal expense.)
I try to address some of the responses to the first two episodes and give a shout out or two. As always, I thank everyone for taking part and getting this off to a nice start (and for not asking whatever happened to episode #1.)

If it walks like a filler and quacks like a filler, than dang it, maybe it is a filler!
So, the weekly schedule went south so quickly, but we are working on this...I explain a bit in the podcast.
Since I had a completely different episode planned, I had to launch with what I could. I do cover a bit about Phoenix Comicon planning and Dungeons and Dragons, which of course we shall revisit later! Then there is also the testing of my temporary theme music. And this weekend will be the planned episode, all about women! (I promise no more squeezie breasteses motions...maybe)
As always, thank you for listening and feel free to let me know what is working for you, make comments, or ask me questions.

I thank you for joining me at the beginning of my podcasting action. You are here to watch it grow -- that's what he said!
Aisha Tyler is right, that never gets old.
Anyway, I am a gay male whose geek-card has more punches than his gay-card. I have written a monthly column for 'N Touch Magazine and worked at the Phoenix ComicCon. But more than that, I am just a big ol' geek, and an all-round ego-maniac. So a podcast was of course in my future.
With that, i jump into the muck and bring you my end of the year revelations of many of the simple pleasures I find crawling around my brain. It goes into all sorts of territory, ending with some thoughts from those who provided input previously and some resolutions.
I hope to hear from you all - let me know what you are liking and would like to see. And the more you give me, the better I will get...I am used to working a crowd so the more the merrier. And any ideas for theme music or a logo are welcome.
I have nothing more to say right now except "Get to listening already!"
p.s. oh yeah, it is maybe best to just assume I was drinking during this. It works for the holiday, you know.
