Hello, y'all!

Here's what you can look forward to a gigantic feast of geek...

1. Some bloody brilliant Garageband-made links and jingles

2. STARTER Reviews of Kick Ass (the film), Comic Book Heroes (magazine), Breaking into Comics the Marvel Way and Girl Comics (comics), and the 24 Hour Comic Challenge (the event).

3. PALATE CLEANSER Retail Review of March with Mike Thompson, Travelling Man Newcastle's marvellous manager.

4. MAIN COURSE Paper Jam Comics Collective documentary featuring interviews with Martin Newman, Jack Fallows, Mike Thompson, Britt Coxon, Gary Bainbridge and Andy Waugh.

5. DESSERT In conversation with the boys behind Trenchfoot; Gav McPhail and the man known as Regan.

Well, better get back to editing...

It has begun..!

Recording has begun for the pilot episode of North East Geek Feast, the new comics, TV, film, action figure, wrestling, etc, etc podcast from Daniel and Lily (et al).

From the moment we decided on the podcast’s title and gimmick, I knew exactly what I wanted from the segment links. Well, over the weekend I put Lily’s considerable vocal talents to task and recorded some great titles. Yes, it was a bit stressful due to the time of day we were recording at (late on Saturday night) but the finished recordings were exactly what I wanted - SUCCESS!

I also put together a nice little jingle for the podcast, which will go down in history (or not) as my first songwriting/arranging post-Squares.

On Tuesday night we’ll be sitting down to discuss the feature on Paper Jam Comics Collective and the featurette on Trenchfoot. We’ll hopefully get a few interviews recorded on Thursday.

Coming soon(er)...

My USB microphone arrived today. Had a quick play with it and all is good.

Should be working on jingles and links on Thursday night as well as making some decisions on content.

Anyone wanting anything reviewed should get in touch (anything!)...
