This week's installment was recorded live at Toronto's finest purveyor of geekery, the Silver Snail, where we will be recording live each Wednesday at 7:00 PM. This episode features commentary from our audience and very special guest walk on appearances by local comic book artist Marcio Takara, who invites everyone out to the Black Bull Pub (across the street from the Snail) for Toronto's Drink and Draw, and producer Mark Askwith (SPACE, and the show that started it all, Prisoners of Gravity). Give it a listen to see if anyone else make an appearance.
Jeff, Will and Zack hit up the Toronto Underground Cinema last week for Son of Kung Fu Fridays and ended up recording a post-fu podcast with some of the gents from the Chinatown theatre. For this episode we were joined by returning guest Peter Kuplowsky, Underground manager and amateur Van Morrison impersonator Alex Woodside, and Morgan White, creator of the The Rep — the excellent web-series based on the theatre.
GeekNerdDork Episode 2: The Lost Files is actually the original "lost" episode of the podcast where Gavin and Jeff sit down to talk about what they want the show to be about. The guys discuss all manner of comics and comic-book related films and games, get depressed by Hoarders, vainly pitch Thunderbolts to 20th Century Fox and deal with an unplanned Odin the dog cameo appearance.
Our own Jeff Brown has joined with comedian and writer Gavin Stephens from NERDGASM Comedy, and author, fanthropologist J.M. Frey from the GeekU Podcast to form a new team: GeekNerdDork — an Alpha Flight to the Shelf's X-Men if you will. Gavin, J.M. and Jeff will gather weekly (Yes, we're putting that in writing) to discuss all the latest geeky, nerdy and dorky happenings in the world of fandom.
Jeff and Will are joined by new contributor Jesse and our friend Emily for this super-sized edition of the Dork Shelf Podcast. It has been a while since our last show, so we have a lot of catching up to do. We recap Fan Expo and the Toronto International Film Festival, talk about the games, films and comic books that have been entertaining us on the commode, and some of the many amazing dorky events happening in Toronto over the next few weeks.
Zack joins Jeff and Will for his first Dork Shelf Podcast. The first half of the show finds the three talking about Transformers games both old and new, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and the reasons they prefer certain consoles over others. After the break—and after Will and Zack have had a few—the three dorks switch their attention to film and television. They rant about Scott Pilgrim vs. The World having its world premiere in Montreal and they rave about HBO's Treme, despite the fact that its actually kind of boring. The group then proceeds to make fun of Will because he went to see the new Twilight movie and then happily discusses Cyrus and Toy Story 3.
In this video game spectacular, Will, Jeff and Lucas are joined by their gassy friend Max to discuss the glut of video games that were offered by developers over the past month or so. They also talk about the demos they have been playing, some games they're looking forward to and a few awesome events happening in Toronto over the next few weeks.
Will, Jeff, Lucas and Noah sit down to discuss the Oscar nomination, the return of Lost, Mass Effect 2, Star Trek Online and its effects on social lives, Iron Man's suit redesign and what people can expect from Iron Man 2.
Will, Lucas, and Chris talk about what they're looking forward to in 2010, particularly video games.
Jeff, the thief, Will, the knight, and Lucas, the wizard, take a break from stacking boxes and dissolving in acid to talk about what they've been playing and what the new year may bring. Lucas details his least favourite Genghis Khan biopic. Jeff talks about what DC has planned for next year, what looks promising. Oh, and Will saw Avatar. Hike up those pants, listen in, and continue the discussion in the comments.
The triumvirate is back for this sixth prime-numbered episode, almost none of which was recorded behind glass. The dorks find themselves deluged with games, fatigued of comics events, and infected with empathy—but it's all good.
To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen Jeff, Joel, Lucas and Will discuss all things Transformers. From the original 80's cartoon and comics to the toys and the recent live-action films we've got our giant shape-shifting alien robot bases well covered.
Will and Lucas brave the cold and hordes of undead to talk about what they did around Hallowe'en and to look back and wonder about giant robots in computer games. Will dressed up in red and is always the first to get killed, and Lucas has been investigating and beating up armoured junkies. Will Twilight be discussed? Find out in episode one-one.
Will, Lucas, Noah, and Shelagh put on their ten-gallon critics' hats and rustle together all the films they've seen recently. Covering films from grindhouse to arthouse, the four cowpokes break down what they saw, what they liked, and why they liked it.
In this "mantastic" episode Lucas, Will, Jeff, and Joel find themselves trapped in a cage deep underwater, assaulted from all sides by the desperate later seasons of The Simpsons. The dorks talk about how Matt Groening's show has changed over time, about what they've been consuming, and some hot news from the worlds of film, video games, and email spam.
