PodCulture 332: The Con Job
After a welcome from the lovely Erin Grey, the trio of geeks jumps into another episode of PodCulture!
Without Adam this week. Glenn is flying this week and baking in the heat and eludes to something the whole gang has been up to. Christina is happy to have found her voice again, and is enjoying a new audiobook series. She is enjoying the irony of the Your Shape game for the 360. Glenn takes a moment to plug the PodCulture Facebook page, having posted a link to a Spiderman fan film and pictures from fan films he himself has worked on. Brad laments the holiday in the middle of the week, having had two Mondays as well.
Derby City Comicon and Fandomfest/Fright Night Film Fest in Louisville. Glenn was on call all weekend, despite having hopes for getting to each convention. He managed to get up early to get to Derby City Comicon for a few hours and only being able to make it to Fandomfest for a little while on Sunday. Brad mentions his friend, Abbie in her steampunk Wonder Woman costume who managed to get to both shows. Glenn takes a moment to talk about Derby City and some of the highlights, including the upcoming Louisville Arcade convention. He shows off Sam Flegel’s zombie portraits as well as his Iron Man painting he picked up. In comics, Glenn picked up some Stuart Staygar and really enjoyed Gavin Smith’s Human City. Also, he loved the childlike weirdness of Terence Hanley’s Monsters & Aliens of America coloring book.
Brad and Christina talk about the stars they met at Fandomfest, including Corey Feldman, Sean Astin, John Rhys-Davies, Gareth David-Lloyd, Colin Ferguson, and the boys from Monster Squad, Andre Gower and Ryan Lambert. Christina found Brad the Diamond Select Serenity “Inara Strikes” statue, and were given Hacksaw, the fan film. Brad and Christina rock the WhoNA booth, too! In the artist alley Brad found Alpha-Sketch art, line art incorporating each letter of the alphabet.

What do any self-respecting con-goers recharge with? Mountain Dew! This Geek Cuisine is Batman Mixed Berry Mountain Dew. Brad shares the tale of Glenn’s Batman tortilla chips. Wings up all around for this caped, caffeinated beverage, so get Alfred to pick some up!
In closing Glenn picked up Todd Boyer’s book, The Consuming, the first book in The Demon Soul saga. He gives us a brief synopsis, and a teaser about some movie star interests. He also picked up a dosemeter from a vendor selling fallout equipment.
