Eventually, I’ve got to do a podcast like this. I clean out my show prep file and just find all the little scraps of stuff I wanted to talk about, but it slipped my mind. Then, when I’m stuck for what to talk about, i just grab all those forgotten scraps. So what scraps make up Episode 8.11: Titles Are Hard?
I saw the Roger Ebert documentary Life Itself on Netflix, and share my reminiscings about Mr. Ebert.
Sighting View-Master reels for the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in a museum leads to ranting about the history of View-Master
Telling the tale of the Justice League movie we almost got from the director of Mad Max
How all those videos games that have the action figure tie-ins (i.e. Disney Infinity) are really starting to tickle my fancy
Plus, I once again recount the tale of how I made my best friend. I’ve blogged about it, but I felt like telling it once again.
Summer is truly upon us! I’m wearing shorts and showing off my sexy legs! And on days like today, nothing like loading up the MP3 player with podcasts and heading out into the world! And what better podcast than mine, and this week’s episode, Episode 8.10: Hooker Bike? Ramblings on this week’s episode:
My latest discoveries on Shomi, heading into reminiscing about Cadillacs and Dinosaurs and my gritty reboot plans for The Edison Twins.
My thoughts on the new Transformers writing committee, and the new method of mapping out franchises
Gushing about the Flash season finale
That, and a song of the show, and various tangents I go off on.
Happy May Long Weekend! As the song says, “Ain’t nothing better in the world you know/Than lying in the Sun with the radio.” And in this day and age, stuff that radio with podcats! Preferably, mine! What rants and ramblings do I have in Episode 8.09: My Biggest Fan Takes Batteries:
More obsessing about Shomi. Yes, I reactivated my account to try the Apple TV app.
Geeking out about these lovely new collectables known as the ReAction figures
Reflections on the old Star Wars: Droids cartoon
And, perhaps the biggest bit in the show. I offer up my reactions to the biggest movie trailer that was released this week. Yes, I rant about the Jem and the Holograms trailer.
Well, gang, it’s the start of a brand new week, so that means it’s time for a whole new episode of The Targ! Kinda didn’t know what to talk about this week, but I think I got a show together. In Episode 8.07: 1999 All Over Again, I ramble about
News on the Avatar sequels and Jurassic World
Some of the problems I ran into with Shomi
Some Star Wars news, as I share the latest developments on the Star Wars Anthology spinoff films
And, some happy reminiscing about standing in line for hours on end for Episode I.
A new week is here, and that means another episode of U62: The Targ to tickle your earbuds! Not much tickling, though, as there’s a lot of complaining and grousing in Episode 8.06: Lower Levels Love Me. What do I complain about today?
Blu-rays that won’t play! Darn you, technology, for not working!
A Spider-Man animated film franchise! Are we going to get Spider-Man oversaturation?
But then, the complaining ends! What good stuff do I applaud?
Marvel’s Daredevil series on Netflix is so good, you guys.
I’ve only just started the podcast up again, and already I’m taking unexplained absences. Sorry there was no show last week. I had to put in some overtime at work and then family came to visit. But I’m back! And I’ve brought Episode 8.03: Secret Origins.
I once again wade into the “music or no” debate on the podcast, going into the secret origins of the podcast.
Recapping the Marvel news of the week, as there’s been a lot of new about their films.
Sharing my general thoughts on the Hobbit trilogy, as my Blu-Rays arrived the other day.
But the big thing is doing another installment of Mark Tastes Random Things. I had a friend visit Japan back in the summer, and he brought me back some legendary Japanese Kit Kats. They’d been sitting in the back of my fridge since July, so if this is uploaded, I didn’t die.
As I’ve been saying for quite a while now, as much as I’m usually down on Daylight Savings Time, I’m thrilled that it’s now light out later! I can go home from work in the daylight! And it’s a good feeling that I’m trying to hang onto.
As such, in this week’s podcast, Episode 8.02: Springy Weather, things kind of got away from me as I found I had lots to ramble about. Some of my ramblings:
In honour of Pi Day, I tell a little story on how knowing math recently won me fabulous prizes!
Throw a little love to Shout! Factory and their recent home media releases
Recapping the Star Wars news of the past week
The creation of cinematic universes, including the announcements of Valiant and Ghostbusters universes
An installment of Mark Tastes Random Things on the Shamrock Shake
And an update on the music yes/music no debate.
All this and more in this week’s episode of U62: The Targ!
