Geek Speak 31: My Licky Rock!

Hello and welcome to another episode of BRB Geek Speak! Lauren got a little cold this episode, which changed her voice and infected her with loud ‘His!’ and Randy Savage impressions. She also decided to change her name to ‘Coleman’. Hey, we always said our show was weird! Please join us for another episode where your hosts, Lauren-Coleman, Monica and Alex ramble about geeky things they have done this week.

  • Mon and Alex watch the first episode of new The X-Files (want to be unspoiled? skip 22.00  from to 28.15)

  • Listener’s question: What do we think of Fallout 4? (thanks, Joe!)
  • Listener’s question: Which Superbowl trailer has us most excited? (thanks, Diarmuid!)

    Woah! Love the fabulous beast drawing.

    As for Fallout, I wouldn’t worry about getting lost, its a lot like Skyrim in the way you can do most of the missions in any order. Tons of side quests to be found traveling in any direction, and for the most part traveling anywhere is relatively safe as long as you willing to run from any real big threat.

    That’s a really cool pic! And just done while the episode was recording? Awesome!

    Ok, here’s a question for the anniversary episode; what are some of your favourite (or most hated) anniversary episodes, across any medium? I love the supernatural 200th episode special, where the plot is summarised as a musical put on by some high-schoolers… it makes more sense in the show. Good stuff.

    Also Alex, what fabrics are you wearing?

  6. Good episode, though Coleman didn’t make the best Lauren, nearly but still not quite.  

    Since you were talking about Lucifer, the TV show and right now Vertigo has Lucifer the comic out now, can you talk about an adaptation that totally misses the mark and one that nails it?  ie Jem the movie is nothing like the TV show but Deadpool is pretty much a live action version of the comics.  Are there others?

    Yup, Mon is kinda awesome that way!

    I only wear wools of baby unicorns which was harvested on the nights of full moon. (Well… now who’s creepy…)

    Lauren makes a better Coleman, actually. But then if I was any good at Arnie or Randy Savage impressions, I could be a pretty accurate version of Coleman tootongue

    I think you should watch this, study it and try to do an impression on the next show on the next show.

    Is it just me or did Lauren sound weird on the last show?

    Come on Coleman, your audio editing skills are slipping man 😀

     

    As for Lucifer, I feel I need to give you some information that I didn’t share before, my favourite kind of films fit into a unique genre called “So Bad it’s Great”.

    On another note….. I love Independence Day for the same reason, so I believe I am the sole creator of hype for ID2… I also have a drinking game for it in the works. First rule – Every time a character says “My God” 🙂

     

    As for the other half thing, I think it’s okay to have differences. But also to learn, I’ve started reading books to understand Jess, and she’s done a lil Destiny research so she knows what I talk about for 70% of the day.

    I also enjoyed Deadpool, I didn’t think it was phenomenal or ground breaking, but I liked it…. I know Lauren has previously tried to explain Deadpool comics to me, so how did people who know the Deadpool character enjoy it????? (LISTENER QUESTION!!!)

    We talked about Deadpool on ep. 32 that has already been recorded and is currently in editing. Needless to say, both Lauren and I have enjoyed it a lot. And I haven’t seen / read / pretty much knew nothing about Deadpool prior to watching and enjoyed it quite a bit!

    Yes to learning! I pretty much re-discovered video games so I could understand what Tim talked about on his podcast! (I took some years of from gaming in the last years of school and uni because a) couldn’t afford it b) didn’t have time and needed to limit my distractions.)
