Pop Culture Talk That’s Out Of This World

Episodes

Join us for another classic GFR! This time out Carlos and James talk about what else? Star Wars Figures! Here's what they had to say at the time!

By now you know how much some of us here at GeekFest Rants, love to talk about Star Wars and specifically, it's lines of action figures. Whether its vintage Kenner or modern Hasbro, we're all over it. But we also love to talk about Star Wars figures that were never made.  If you are too, you're in luck.

 

Today we dig deep into the "I wish they would make..." cave, to see which potential figures we can unearth from the Original Trilogy.  Join Carlos and James as they channel their always present inner child to tackle this never ending subject.

On this Episode, GV has two false starts before finally recording the episode properly, gets confused about what the movie Nobody is about and who Bob Odenkirk is, and then moves on to some talk about his lifelong relationship with baseball and his last 20 years as a fan of the Oakland A's.

This is one of my favorite episodes of all the times. I remember how daunting it seemed when I thought of the idea and how happy I was when I was finally done with it lol.. This is from March of 2017. Here is what we had to say at the time.

Hey kids! This week we have a little something different. An All New Episode of.. This Boring Life, where every episode we will explore The Secret Origin Of IseeRobots. One Topic At A Time. 
 
The topic for this episode? Comic Stores. Yep, this is the one where I go in-depth into my comic book collecting history. It's super fun and also Super Informative. Over the course of the show we take a look at all of the comic shops here in lovely Santa Rosa California and the surrounding areas.
 
There are stories about Mr. T, this is one of my best stories so make sure to give it a listen. There are tales of my early days in SR as well as a story about the time I met comic book legend, Jim lee. 
 
It's a super fun episode and at just over 2 hours long is the longest episode of anything that I have recorded to date. I don't know if that is good or bad.

This is an intersting one because we just went to the 1st 40/8 Flea Market in two years! It was so wild to be back there again. This ep is from May of 2019. Let's see what we had to say at the time...

This week on The TRU RPT we start off with a new jam from Iceberg and MC Kate (Makes The Mic Disintegrate) Then we are lucky enough to have IB in the booth with us and he tells us a bit about his mixing style and then we have a new Johnny Court Commercial. It's all fun

From there we take a look at Detective Pikachu, the first ever live action Pokemon Game. It was alright.

For the main event we talk a bit about the start of flea market season and what that means to us and what we got at our first 40/8 Flea Market of the year. It's a pretty fun segment.

At the end of the show we talk about a VHS Tape I found and some other stuff of that sort. It's all good.

We are back with another super fun and informative episode of Geekfest Rants. This week Carlos talks with James about the super great 80's miniseries V! I was so into V BITD. What a classic. Let's take a look at what Carlos had to say at the time..

Today on Geekfest Rants Carlos and James once again step back into the 80's to visit an old friend of their childhood, V the Mini Series, V the Final Battle, and V the Series.  Join us as we take a look at this very popular, for the times, network tv entry into the sci-fi realm.  As expected, we will also discuss the toys and even the recently unsuccessful ABC reboot.

This week's blast from the past is from October of 2019. Some good GI Joe Talk as well as some other junk too. Here's what we had to say at the time...

This week on The ISR Show we have a super awesome episode ahead of us! We start off with a convo between me and Iceberg. We're in the Jupiter Base Snack Shack and talk about Emily, Aliens and all sorts of stuff... It's fun.

Then we move onto At The Movies where we're gonna take a spoiler-free peak into The Joker.. DC's latest Comic Book Movie. I enjoyed it and have some thoughts on it and what it means to DC and the world at large..

For the Main Event of the show we're gonna revisit one of my favorite topics of all the times and space.. From Ace To Zartan! This time around we're gonna take a look at all of the GI Joe Real American Hero Figures from 1984. This includes dudes like Zartan, Duke, The Baroness and many others. It's a fun and info packed segment..

We kind of cut the final segment short because From Ace To Zartan went so long.. There is some toy talk and mention of a helmet I got for a Mego of mine.. It's a good time..

Make sure to tell a friend! We need your support to grow the pod into the world wide phenomenon it can be.. lol..

Some unforseen circumstances have pulled Mr.Sensational away from the soundboard. We present this blast from the past in his absence. 

 

Hey everybody it is I, “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega, back with Episode 3 of the “Mr. Sensational” Gino Vega Podcast on the I See Robots Radio Network. On this episode I take a look at the recent holiday season, seasonal anxiety, and a show I played over the holidays with my band The Invalids.

After that, it’s a muddled road as we plow through some of my weird family tree en route to talking about my history and memories as a fan of popular music in the 1980’s, 1990’s, and the 2000’s. Of course I bit off more than I could chew with this topic, so we don’t get out of the 1980’s, but if you’d like to join me for my thoughts on my earliest memories of MTV and my grade school infatuation with hair metal, sit back and enjoy the ride. And if not? Hey, who can blame you!

Hey kids! We're taking a little break this week as we head into the conclusion of Season One Of Worlds Famous.. Don't worry though.. We have something fun for you. I blast from the past episode.. Let's see what we had to say about this one at the time...

Hey kids. We have a real humdinger of a show this week! We're doing two of the things you guys seem to like me to talk about the most in the same feature! We're gonna talk food, AND do a Top 5! Plus, it's Halloween Related.. The Top 5 Halloween Candies Of All The Times! It's gonna be great.

Before we get there though we have to pass through some somber space and confront the passing of Robert Forrester. I was lucky enough to meet Mr. Forrester once and I really wanted to share that story with you guys. He was a nice dude.

For At The Movies we're gonna take a peek at a horror comedy called Zombieland: Double Tap. It's a sequel to a movie that came out ten years ago.. I don't know. We'll talk about it in a spoiler free way.

Then it's on to the Main Event.. The Top 5 Trick Or Treat Candies Of All The Times. This is a pretty fun one. Basically the idea is, when I was sorting out my post Trick Or Treat winnings what were the candies that I gave the highest priority to...? Which ones did I either eat first or save for last? It's a ton of fun.

For the final segment of the show we talk the recent blackout, Megos, Halloween decorations and a bunch of other cool topics.

Thanks for tuning in. Have a happy/spooky Halloween and make sure to tell a friend...
