Geek Talk Interview



I'm interviewed on a new podcast where we discuss the SOPA trip from back in December, working at Barnes & Noble, and various other stuff that actually has to do with the show! ‎

I found you books (or at least those from a 15 year old named Lewis Lovhaug...) on Amazon for Kindle! That is a mighty achievement. I want to publish a few books of my own.... but that implies that I have to finish a book that im writing...

Really? I could be of some help. E-mail me at mitchapman14@gmail.com so I can provide some assistance.

Speaking of your books Linkara, I just saw on the Lightbringer forums you have a book four ready to go. I assume you already have a cover, but if you may I might find time to draw up a suberbly-detailed Louis in the same armor design from the Lightbringer Comics with a hillside burning in the backgriund, which I will submit to you and you may use asban alternate cover design. I'm thinking of making the flames a different color depending on what's the book about (for example if it's a story about valor and bravery they would be purple, if it was a love story pink, and so on). But I have no way of knowing. If you please, just through out an ambiguos phrase to describe book 4 like "love" or "hatred" or "bravery"

Love the interview very informative; the Star Trek and DC trip parts were the most entertaining but the tech stuff interests me as an aspiring reviewer/film maker. I'm also a Doctor Who hipster but a PBS (Friends of Spokane!!!) Tom Baker generated one.

Two questions.

1) Since you love West Wing I wonder if you are a fan of Alan Sorkin, it's creator's, other work? I have a friend who is a huge fan of is and is having me watch all of this shows... right now we're on Studio 60, but West Wing is next.

2) More pertinently in my first attempts at comic reviews I've used Sony vegas, my video editing program of choice, to pan over comic pages... it is a bit choppy. Do you still use photostory for that, or is that all done in the adobe suite now? Which is better a video editor or photostory for that?

Yep, I use Adobe Premiere for it now and it IS better than Photostory, with more options available.

Some of us TGWTG fans are hoping that the experience of fighting against SOPA should be part of the next anniversary movie like having Nostalgia Critic team up with "every" member of the site to battle against those who want to take down the Internet. I hope it happens because it may top all other anniversary movies by a mile.

On May 13, 2011, I made an AT4W poem as a small tribute to what you do for a living, Lewis. I didn't know if, and when, I might post it, but now I think its as good of a time as any to show it off. Feel free to use it in any of your videos if you want.

I am a man, with amantium rage.
Reading bad comics, I will turn the page.
The bees, my god, with young blood's disease.
Beary please help me, I need more pills please.

With my magic coin, I'm standing so tall.
And with Ranger Powers, I'm atop the Fourth Wall.
Reviewing bad comics and burning them all.

I was looking thought some of your older stuff where you mentioned your dislike of The Boys and I was wondering if you would ever review it?

I hope you don't mind going way off topic (this was a good interview by the way)but I had a recommendation for you. I don't know if you're aware of it or not, if you are I apologize. In the 80's DC Comics did a super powers mini-series to tie into their toy line, and it was the dumbest thing ever! I would donate my copies of it if I hadn't tossed them. It's hard for me to come up with recommendations but that was one I had to share. Thanks for letting me ramble.

Great interview. I, of course, love hearing you talk about Doctor Who. I am not a hipster fan though. The only old ep I attempted to watch was The Androids of Tara but the slow pace and subpar effects turn me off. This is one of those instances where I must respectfully disagree on your stance regarding special effects being unnecessary for story enjoyment.

I love MST3K; watched it since I was 4 and Puma Man is a great ep. I heard a rumor that humor was actually intended to be drawn from Tony's geeky flying style. Gotta say, I didn't get the memo on that one if its true.

Hearing you talk about Star Trek makes me wonder if I should get into it more. I gotta say I never EVER watched Babylon 5 but I had NO IDEA it had such a huge following so maybe I should find it.

BTW, what is your idea of BAD overacting? How far can you act while still maintaining your dignity?

Ugh - unfortunately, I cannot watch it, because "the SME-music-content is not available in Germany, because GEMA has not granted the respective music publishing rights."

Sometimes, youtube just loves to bitch with us. ^^

The most interesting part is that this is an interview video with (well, at least as far as I could see) no music in it. So they are blocking the movie for german viewers due to copyright infringement for music that doesn't exist. I don't know who is responsible for this - Google or the GEMA - but that's just insane.

@ GSandSDS

Well, another thought, that comes to my mind, about it, is, that there was some idiot, who just flagged the thing, just for the sake of it. Either, he had no idea, or was actually not very fond of the things, that were said there, and so he flagged the thing.

Just my two cents.

Oh, by the way, Linkara?
I just bought two issues of "the sword of truth", because I liked the show "The legend of the seeker" - maybe that could be of interest for you, when you are a fantasy-afficionado?

The Composer said...

I remember listening to this a few weeks ago and an idea just hit me today. You said the Entity story arc was partially inspired by Marble Hornets, but you hadn't yet watched it. If you still haven't, why not make a reaction video out of it? I'm sure a lot of us would watch the heck out of it.

Well, video or no, when you do eventually wind up watching it, please make sure and share your thoughts with us. Keep up the good work.
