Season 7, Episode 4 – A Review of Graveyard Mind by Chadwick Ginther

Seanorama reviews Graveyard Mind , the latest by author Chadwick Ginther. Here is a brief synopsis of the book from the back cover: “ In Winnipeg’s underworld, every mortician is on the take and every revenant of myth waits to claw their way out of their tombs. The dead stay in the ground because of Winter Murray, a necromancer of the Compact. A victim of abduction and a criminal herself, Winter stalks Winnipeg’s Graveside, preventing larger, more heinous crimes from spilling over into the lives of the Sunsiders, no matter what laws of gods and men she must break to do so. Winter is a chimera, sharing the genetic material of her own never-born fraternal twin sister. Her dead twin’s essence provides her a link to the Kingdom―the land of the dead―and a tie to a past she’s run from for thirteen years. Winter struggles to find a redemption she doesn’t believe she deserves. The temptation of dirty deeds is everywhere: An animated skeleton with a penchant for wearing dead men’s

Season 6, Episode 29 – Warners and Sony have a Beef with Apple and Google

Season 6, Episode 29 – Warners and Sony have a Beef with Apple and Google Warner Bros and Sony distribute their digital movie copies through Ultraviolet and Flixter, but Ultraviolet has decided to shut their doors. If you’ve bought a digital copy of a Warner Bros or Sony film, you may be out of luck and have to rebuy the movie. Seanorama is livid as he and FastFretFingers discuss why Warner Bros and Sony do not distribute digital copies through Google or Apple, why “digital copy” is a misnomer, how the “digital revolution” is a step back instead of a step forward, and how we as consumers can work through the hurdles the studios throw at us. There will be a follow-up to this episode as Warner Bros has been in touch with Seanorama over his frustration with the digital copy process. Stay tuned and learn how he may in fact save his digital collection. #ultraviolet #flixter #digitalcopy #warnerbros #sonystudios #itunes #apple #google #youtube #disney  Season 6, Episode 29 – W

Season 6, Episode 28 – Imperial vs Metric

Season 6, Episode 28 – Imperial vs Metric In the ultimate knock-down, drag-out fight, the boys discuss the Imperial system’s fight against the Metric system. In Canada, we have a blend of both systems leading to the ultimate confusion when buying food, travelling along the road, or operating in business. How do we navigate? And why are there two systems in Canada? #imperial #metric #canada #imperialsystem #metricsystem Season 6, Episode 28 – Imperial vs Metric

Season 6, Episode 27 – Who Watches No-Touch Devices?

The brothers discuss the advent of battery run devices such as clocks and their move into no-touch devices, such as in washrooms (faucets, soap dispensers, auto-flush toilets), locks on lockers and safes, and how this advance in society has moved forward without the ability to maintain it. What happens when the batteries die and who looks after changing them? #sensors #notouchdevices #soapdispensers #batterypoweredsensorfaucets #autoflush #lockers #engineering #redseal Season 6, Episode 27 – Who Watches No-Touch Devices?

Season 6, Episode 26 – Note For Note

Seanorama and FastFretFingers debate what constitutes great live music: do you like music that matches the album note for note, or do you prefer music that changes the songs. From improvisational jams, beat changes, different intros and outros, some bands change nothing from their album while others never play the same song the same way twice. Radio edits are changes to song that soften songs for radio: When Creep by Radiohead was changed for radio, one word completely altered what the song was about. Some bands like Gwar need to adjust their songs live because of their show. What does chemistry lie in bands that are in tune and able to improvise and change their songs live on a whim? They use the examples of Confuschia, Motley Crue, Led Zeppelin, 16 Horsepower, Kiss, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Radiohead, Gwar, Reverend Horton Heat, and the Tragically Hip. #confuschia #vinceneilvocals #16horsepower #ledzeppelin #kissalive #redhotchilipeppers #radiohead #radioedit #reverendhor

Season 6, Episode 25 – James Gunn re-hired by Disney

Just when things couldn’t get weirder… James Gunn was promptly fired last year by Disney, leaving Guardians of the Galaxy in the dust and without a director. James Gunn was hired by DC to make Suicide Squad--- then rehired by Disney! What is going on here? The brothers discuss all of this in detail, including their theories on the why and wherefores that this all happened. #jamesgunn #mcu #dcu #marvel #disney #guardiansofthegalaxy Season 6, Episode 25 – James Gunn re-hired by Disney

James Gunn is back. Let's all learn a lesson from this --- from Seanorama

James Gunn is back with Disney/Marvel. Wow. I never would have predicted this would have happened. To be honest, things like this don’t happen in our day and age. James Gunn said some reprehensible things back in the day. It was meant to be shocking and controversial. And it fell flat. I have known many people--- in fact, most people I know--- that have said something controversial or offensive in their lifetime. In fact, if someone hasn’t said something controversial or offensive at some point in their life, I don’t trust them. Wisdom comes with age. It is not inherited. The truth of the matter is, we don’t end up fully formed out of the egg. Regardless of how well we are raised, or sometimes because of how well we are raised, we all say something asinine or stupid, something that gets someone’s dander up, something that deeply offends somebody else. We all begin ignorant. Every one of us. No exceptions. It is through life we learn to be better people. It’s inh

Season 6, Episode 21 – A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Lounge

Last week I was lucky enough to be invited to a private show (thanks to Sam from Witchpolice Radio). Almost as entertaining as the show itself (which will be covered in a later episode) was getting to the show. I planned to be there 30 minutes before show time and got there 15-20 minutes after showtime. What the hell happened? Well let us tell you… The brothers also talk about more changes to the studio that FastFretFingers has made, getting into the technical side of things, including codpasts (?), portable studios (shout out to James Beaver), and microphones. #witchpoliceradio #loungefm #podcaststudios #podcasting #codpasting  Season 6, Episode 21 – A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Lounge

Season 6, Episode 18 – Where is all your tax dollars going?

To quote the brothers of the D, the government totally sucks. Seanorama and FastFretFingers discuss your tax dollars and all of the various ways the government collects it, coffers it and mismanages it. Why is there never any money left and why do they keep creating new revenue streams to drain your wallet? Alcohol, fuel, income tax, GST, PST, RST (the woman tax), photo radar, casinos, marijuana… the list goes on and they keep sucking us dry while they somehow run out of money. On the other side of the coin the brothers discuss tax rates and the level of happiness of other countries. What are the top 11 countries (why 11, because top 10 lists are passé) in terms of happiness and how do their tax levels determine their happiness? A hint of what is coming next, keep your ears peeled for the next episode where we have a very special guest, someone I have wanted to have on the Podcast for some time. Who will it be? PS Wunderlist is in fact great and no they are NOT paying

Season 6, Episode 17 – The Titans are Deeply Cool

Seanorama discusses the new take on the Teen Titans with the WB show Titans, his own history with the comics, and if the show holds up to its history with the iconic runs of Marv Wolfman/George Perez and Geoff Johns/Mike McKone Note: As this issue was recorded On the Road, the name left out on the Classic Geoff Johns run was artist Mike McKone. Note: Yes I worked DC into the title of this podcast, and no it was not particularly clever. #titans #teentitans #thenewteentitans #geoffjohns #marvwolfman #georgeperez #mikemckone #DC Season 6, Episode 17 – The Titans are Deeply Cool

Seanorama from the SeanGeek Podcast

I have rarely felt so energized. I just finished editing two long episodes of the podcast, both of which featured my bro by blood Todd (also known as FastFretFingers on the show) and my other bro, not by blood, but by sweat and tears, Corey Toews. We had decided to do these episodes once a month or so and they have been so much fun that afterwards I feel like I am riding on this buzz that takes weeks to dissipate. And I wonder how much trouble we would get into if we had the entire cast with Voicesbytracy on hand. It would be a riotfest, no doubt. We have so many plans coming up for this year that, under any other circumstance, would be overwhelming and scary. But because it is with these two, that all I do is look forward to each thing we are tackling. I love doing the podcast. I really do. I have been doing this thing for so long now, that it has become comfortable, fun and one of my favourite things. And we are just getting started. We plan to open the store this year,
