Episode 20: Death Stranding With Alex

On today’s adventure, our wonderful friend Alex (Super GG Radio) takes to a world that is dark, lonely and only allows you to drink Monster Energy… No, it’s not Hell, It’s Death Stranding! From the amazing visuals to the not so subtle messages this game is something that we could talk about for days. We also talk about the Amazing 24-hour stream that the boys over at Super GG radio did to raise money for extra life.

Special Thanks to Monster Energy for keeping us all alive during the apocalypse.

The Other Voices: Tigers Are Not Afraid

I think we can all agree that children shouldn’t have to be warriors. They should have homes and parents and food and time to play without worrying about survival. Unfortunately, not all children get to have that. Mexican director Issa Lopez’ 2017 dark fairy tale, TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID, is the story of a group of orphans who have to wake up every day and fight the evil that grown-ups are too scared to face.

This is not some happy story of victory over evil. It’s about the cost we ask our children to pay when we don’t protect them, and I know I’ll be thinking about it for days. It may take place in Mexico, but we are not so removed from this world. We conduct active shooter drills in schools now. Police officers sometimes assault or kill black children instead of protecting them. Our loudest activists against gun violence have become teenagers. This is a burden they should not have to bear, but they do.

Episode #299 – Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away…

STAR WARS
EPISODE VI
RETURN OF THE JEDI

It’s 1983, and fans eagerly line up to see the conclusion to the trilogy, with expectations soaring high. What they get causes some distress. Swashbuckling? Ewoks? Silly humor? Well, yeah. It’s the perfect distillation of everything we liked from the first two movies, and quite possibly the best way to end the trilogy. Of course, some additions have been made over the years that have made this chapter difficult to enjoy. Join us as we discuss Return of the Jedi!

Star Trek Picard: What Do We Know?

It’s still a couple of months away, but the hype for Star Trek: Picard is in full swing. At the 2019 Destination Star Trek, I was lucky enough to attend the Patrick Stewart talk and in that he discussed a few things to expect from the new series. For more on my experience at Destination Star Trek see my article here.

Chapter 28 – The Shattered Lands

A hundred years ago a massive quake sundered the eastern shores of Valderian, leaving devastation in its wake and creating what is now referred to as The Shattered Lands. The port town of Edgewater to the north managed to turn the geographical blight into something of a tourist trap in later years, giving a minor boost to their stalling economy. And for a time things were considered good, although you might have gotten a different answer if you polled any random passersby along Edgewater’s main streets. In fact, if you managed to talk to everyone in the town you’d discover a shared emotion: dread. It’s this same feeling that besets our heroes as they begin making their way to the Tower of All.

The Other Voices: Us

Obviously there are a lot of horror movies out there that are just meant to be fun, low-budget schlockfests to give you a good scare before bedtime, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned about Jordan Peele, it’s that he’s not interested in any of that. If he’s going to scare us, it’s not going to be with a creepy monster – it’s going to be with the truth of our own society. And his latest, US, is certainly in line with that trend.
