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!
Well, now that I’ve rebuilt the website, I guess it’s time to start generating content, and what better way to do that than by bringing back the podcast?
Episode 8.01: Back and Catching Up continues the proud tradition I do on every first podcast back from a hiatus, and that’s begin by explaining the hiatus! Then I take you around the website and all the awesome rebuilding I did, and then ramble about all the things that happened while I was gone, such as:
“Weird Al” Yankovic releasing his album Mandatory Fun and talking a lot like he was retiring.
Marvel Studio’s announcement of Phase III of their Cinematic Universe, and the fact that they got Spider-Man back!
And general reaction to the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer
Plus, I have an important lesson for you, the listeners, so give it a listen!
