Pop Culture Talk That’s Out Of This World

Episodes

Hey kids! Welcome to another exciting classic GFR! This time around our guys Carlos and James talk Starlog Magazine! Let's see what they had to say at the time...

Before the internet gave us access to Ain't It Cool News, Dark Horizons, You Tube, Collider, and Super Hero Hype, all we geeks had was print media and Starlog Magazine was the place to go.  

Join Carlos and James as they recall the days when we eagerly awaited the next issue of Starlog Magazine to learn about upcoming genre projects as well as conventions and merchandise.

Hey kids! We are back for another installment of Classic Geekfest Rants! This time around we're gonna give a listen to episode 211.  It's about Miami Vice. Let's see what Carlos had to say at the time....

Today we remember a time where a television show inspired men to wear white Italian linen suits over pastel T-shirts while wearing imported shoes with no socks.  To sport a five o'clock shadow 24/7 and to drive expensive sports cars.....well....maybe getting the cars was a little more difficult.  

We are of course talking about Miami Vice, the 1984 cop show that upped the ante on the modern cop show.  For years we had different versions of gritty cops but now we had the cool cops.  

From music, to fashion, to action, Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas became television stars and Miami Vice became the latest evolution of the American cop show.  Join us today as Carlos and James take a ride to Miami Vice.

On today's installment of GFR Carlos and James discuss that pre-Star Wars slice of sci-fi, Logan's Run!

Hey kids! Let's dig back into the super rich history of Geekfest Rants! This is one of my favorite episodes from the past.. Ep.230 Attack Of The Twelve Backs. It's a very indepth look at the 1st wave of Kenner Star Wars Figures!.

Here's what Carlos had to say at the time.. 

 

It all began with the 12-Backs, the first 12 Star Wars action figures released in 1978.  While the movie overtook our lives in the summer of 1977, the action figure line overtook our wallets a year later.

Listen to Carlos and James as they give you a beginner's course on Star Wars vintage action figure collecting.

How were these figures introduced to the market, what were the variants, where did we get them, what is a double-telescoping light saber?  So, dig out you old figures for today's GeekFest Rants.

Hey kids, we're cooking up some new content and should more than likely be back with a new show soon but until then why not listen to one of my favorite episodes of ALL THE TIMES! TBL: Comic Book Stores! This one was an absolute labor of love with a ton of hard work in it. It's about 2 hours long and should help you to make it through a hard work week...

Here's what I 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.

Make sure to give it a re-listen or a 1st time listen if you are new around these parts.

Here's what I had to say about the episode when it was 1st released...

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with a talk A.B Silver about his movie project and then move onto a celebrity guest who I never thought that we'd be able to get on the show! It was amazing.

With Gino Vega's latest episode there has been a lot of cereal talk going on over at The Tweets and I keep referencing my Top 5 Cereals Episode so instead of just talking about it again I'm like.. Why not just repost it?  

This is an oldie but goodie folks. I honestly would love it if some of you ISR New Jacks dug into the vault a bit more TBH.. There is some gold in there! 

This is what I had to say at the time....

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by. We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with a little talk with Engineer Emily and then we move onto At The Movies where we examine a super weird movie that I saw called "Swiss Army Man" Dude, it was something else.

Hey kids! How about a blast from the past!.... 

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!
