It’s still a pretty messed-up world out there, and I try not to talk about it because I want this show to be a dumb little distraction. But there’s a few things I must address. For example…the movie theatres are reopening! I’ll tell you what they’re doing to entice you to come out. With the theatres reopening, we’re getting trailers for new movies again, so I give you my thoughts on the trailers for Bill & Ted Face the Music and The King’s Man. And Disney is going to be giving Splash Mountain a needed facelift.
Well, with things starting to reopen, that includes campgrounds. So my parents called me up and said, “We’re loading up the RV and heading out to Jasper National Park. Wanna come?” And I said, “Sure!”
So in Episode 10.10: How I Spent My June Vacation, I tell you all about it! We stayed at the luxurious Wildhorse Lake campground and I tell you about some of the interesting roadside turnouts we stopped at. In downtown Jasper, I finally got to sample one of the world-famous BeaverTails, and I tell you about my favourite things that I’d like to try in Jasper someday.
I’m recording this one on a grey, rainy day, looking out the window and thinking about what kind of adventures I can have when the world starts reopening. But I’m still trying to have adventures at home. I try ordering McDonald’s through the app for the first time. I share a tale of Japan, and sampling Hawaiian burgers. Over on The Streaming Report, I talk about all the Disney theme park vlogs I’ve been binging. And I wrap things up by talking about all the cool stuff at West Edmonton Mall I miss.
Another week, another podcast, and another rant from me about what’s going on in my life. The big news is the recasting of Batwoman on Batwoman. Looks like there’ll be a not just a new actress, but a whole new character under the cowl. I bust out another Mark Tastes Random Things and sample Tim Hortons Froot Loops Donut. Over on The Streaming Report I watch a whole bunch of Disney movies. And I wrap things up by talking about the Lost Apple Project…just a thing that fascinates me and proves I’m turning I’m turning into my Dad.
All this week on Episode 10.08: The Bounty of Nature!
Time for a few more rants and raves from me in these days of spending most of your time at home. But I always spent most of my time at home anyway, so it’s nothing new. As mentioned last week, I got new glasses! So I just sit in amazement and be able to see. I dust off Mark Tastes Random Things, as I sample a Misty Freeze from Dairy Queen. Over in The Streaming Report, I tell you about The Simpsons on Disney+. And I just watched the big rocket launch on TV, and offer some thoughts on that.
We’ve got another new week, so that means it’s time for a new podcast, and here it is!
Still doing my best to survive in these trying times, which makes me do random things around my house, such as re-cataloging my DVDs. But before that puts you to sleep, I tell you that we’re finally getting a whole new version of Justice League. Over in the Streaming Report, I tell you my thoughts on a couple of classic movies I finally streamed, plus my thoughts on the final season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. Oh, and I’m also getting new glasses!
And that’s everything that’s going on in Episode 10.06: The Heights of Boredom.
And here we go again with a brand new episode of The Targ. Since podcasts started as audio blogs, I go into blogging territory as I vent about my car and how it’s been giving me grief lately. They’ve just announced yet another new Star Trek series, so I tell you all about that and all the other Star Trek shows that are coming. In The Streaming Report I give my new Blu-Ray of Birds of Prey a spin. And I get nostalgic about the Studio Ghibli Museum.
And that’s what’s all on deck in Episode 10.05: Where I’m At
Another new week means I’ve got another new episode of U62: The Targ as I keep myself occupied during this times of self-isolation. I’m still managing to get out and go for walks to get some exercise, and I was poetic about that. Hence the title of this week’s show.
I also recap the Star Wars news that came out of Star Wars Day, take you down the rabbit hole that is Disney Theme Park vlogs, and in the streaming report, I catch-up on sci-fi by binging Ex Machina, Arrival, and Annihilation.
Well, this episode is going to be going up the week of Star Wars Day, so what better topic than Star Wars?
You have to admit, the ’10s have been a pretty good decade for Star Wars. We got five new movies, two new animated series, our first live-action series, and a whole bunch more. So I give you my thoughts on all of it: what I thought of the sequel trilogy, in The Streaming Report, I offer my thoughts on The Mandalorian and the revival of Clone Wars, and this shocking new trend of the disdain for the sequel trilogy leading to a new appreciation for the prequels!
All this week in Episode 10.03: Talkin’ ‘Bout Star Wars!
And we’re continuing with the new, self-isolation version of U62: The Targ, as all my old podcasting gear from my closet seems to be working, so we’re still doing this.
It’s starting to warm up outside, and as always, that makes me nostalgic for my days of cycling, so I share some stories about that. Canadian Blood Services just swung through town, so since you can still get out and donate blood, I tell you all about that. We just hit the 30th anniversary of the first live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film, so I reminisce. And for The Streaming Report, I update you on Pokemon: Origins and Disney nature documentaries.
