Pop Culture Talk That’s Out Of This World

Episodes

 

 Happy Halloween kids! This week we have a SUPER AWESOME episode of the show ahead of us. Let's start with the small stuff first. We lead off with a new song from ship DJ Iceberg Thirteen and then move onto a little talk about AMC's hit show, Fear The Walking Dead and then it's At The Movies where we talk about a GREAT movie I saw called Sicario. It was dope.

Then it's on to the Main Event which is sure to be a classic bit of Toys R Us Report History.  We went Ghost Hunting At The Haunted Toys R Us in Sunnyvale California. Watch this bit from Real People to learn more..

It's all in the episode though. So you can hear it there but it's also fun to watch. Basically it's all haunted up and me an my boy Iceberg Thirteen went down there to see what's what. I'm not a big believer in this sort of thing but we've came up with a recorded that might change my mind! You have to hear it. It's pretty creepy. 

Look dudes, this is going to be something people talk about for years. You wanna be part of that right? Like all cutting edge and in the know as far as what people talk about right?

"From a Certain Point of View" is not just a very memorable line that Ben tells Luke from Return of the Jedi.  It is also a point of argument when it comes to defending toxic fandom.  Are all points of view equal? Or are there some points of view that are so extreme that they don't belong on the same playing field? 

Join Carlos today on GeekFest Rants as we examine an interview Jason Swank from Rebel Force Radio gave Jeremy Griggs from Geeks+Gamers regarding the previously discussed Toxic Fandom RFR situation within the Star Wars community. 

Here we'll get a partial "their side of the story" which has been missing from RFR's actual show.  We also discuss this new sub genre of profitable, provocative, verbally aggressive, alt-right kind of fandom that seems to have found it's way into the Star Wars community.

Not film documentaries, documentaries about films.  There is a difference; these are not your typical behind the scenes, how a movie is made kind of docs. 

These are about how some movies never got made like The Death of Superman Lives, Doomed, and Jodorowsky's Dune.  Or movies about how people interpret Kubrick's The Shining like Room 237. 

Plus many, many more.  Join Carlos today on GeekFest Rants as he explores all these excellent documentaries(about films).

Things are not going to go the way you think... Today on GeekFest Rants, this line from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, will apply both to the kind of show we are uploading and to one of Carlos' favorite podcasts, Rebel Force Radio. 

On this episode we are doing an unexpected continuation to our previous Toxic Fandom episode.  This time we'll cover how Toxic Fandom and politics seeps into everyday personal relationships. 

How we are often disappointed by the media personalities we admire.  And even, how something as unifying as a top rated Star Wars podcast can divide the fan community due to their political and diversity/inclusively views.
