We're a geek culture podcast and blog covering video games, music, food and more. We are the kinds of people who evangelize whatever we are into - it could be anything - but it's usually pretty geeky. We're casual, conversational, NSFW and hopefully interesting. We hope you enjoy it.
Tons of stuff to cover this week, from cooking for engineers to Deathspank to Crackdown 2. Join Jinny, Ross, Qais, Ryan and I in discussing this week's big video game and geek culture news MOST NOTABLY the crazy awesomeness that was the Old Spice guy. We'll miss you, nutty Old Spice guy. We also discuss Mega Man Universe, Scott Pilgrim, Plants vs. Zombies, Limbo and death on Facebook. We wrap it all up with a song. As you do. Enjoy!
Hi guys! Sorry we are such jerks! Due to a scheduling conflict and various minor acts of god, we won't be recording a podcast this week. Next week, though. Oh what a podcast we will give you next week!
In the meantime, check out this upcoming Child's Play charity event called For The Kids. It's a community curated game marathon taking place this Thursday. Looks pretty neat. And, you know. It's for the kids.
There is a podcast this week where before there was only a cold, dark void. Join me, Qais, Ross, Jinny and Ryan as we discuss the Hulu Plus pricing announcement and how it may or may not affect our TV viewing habits. We also discuss our rising interest in The Social Network, the new Facebook movie. Then we gush about Deadwood coming out on Blu-ray and answer some mailbag. Enjoy.
Hi guys. Would you like to listen to a new podcast? Good. Here's one. It has me, Jinny, Qais, Ross and Ryan in it. We talk about video games. We also talk about movies. Then at the end we talk a little about food and our new chameleon. It's a typical Weekly Geek episode, and we hope you enjoy it for that fact.
Join us this week for the best of the rest from E3 2010. We're talking Nintendo's big press conference with the 3ds, and all their new iterations of beloved franchises as well as Sony's obsession with glowing colored balls. We run down the list of the stuff we think was the coolest that came out of the convention this year, as well as some advice for novice home cooks in our mailbag segment. Enjoy!
It's the start of E3 week, and we've got the first day covered on this episode of The Weekly Geek. Join me, Jinny, Qais and Ross in discussing Microsoft's Natal name change as well as the slew of Kinect launch titles and the brand new slim Xbox 360 console. Is the new information about the Kinect enough to get us to accept its place in the living room of the future?! We also discuss Fable 3, Fallout: New Vegas, Rock Band 3, Child of Eden and more. Stay for mailbag where we talk about what movies are on our "so bad it's good" list, and a song from the new album by The Books.
It's that time of year again - time to be surprised when Apple announces a new version of the iPhone. Join Jinny, Qais, Ross and I in discussing the iPhone 4 and all of it's magical properties which you will be sure to love/hate. In addition to creaming ourselves over all things Apple, we also discuss the deluge of luddite articles about multitasking and distraction, an easy to use molecular gastronomy kit and Red Dead Redemption's amazingly fun multiplayer. Stay 'till the end, because we have an excellent song of the week for you.
We've also finally fixed comments on the site! So that's good.
Making things, fixing things and tinkering with things is one of the things that makes geeks like us tick, and this week's podcast is pretty much all about that. Well, besides the stuff about video games. That's inevitable. Join me, Jinny, Ross and Ryan in discussing maker culture, the future of near-field iPhone/hotel interaction, the new Scott Pilgrim Trailer and Super Mario Galaxy 2. Stay tuned to the end of the show for the song of the week.
We're back this week talking about the biggest cultural event of the year - the Lost finale. Spoilers galore, so watch out! Join Ross, Jinny, Qais, Ryan and me in discussing the end of 6 years of your geeky life. What we liked and what we hated, it's all laid out on the table. In addition to spoiling the crap out of Lost, we also obsess a bit over Red Dead Redemption (buy this game), Mario Galaxy 2, Google's Pac-Man logo, a few new iPad/iPhone apps we're loving and Mark Twain's 100 year secret. It's an action-packed show with a bonus song at the end. It's like a box of cereal with a toy in it. In podcast form.
You know when you get back from a trip and you're completely exhausted and all you want to do is sit and watch Star Trek and play with your new iPad? That's where we're at today. Podcast for tonight is postponed until next Monday. Apologies to those of you who need to listen to the podcast like a diabetic needs insulin. Additional apologies to all diabetics who I might have just offended. See you next week!
