  1. I really enjoyed this episode. One of the better ones for this podcast in quite awhile. Great stuff guys.

    1. Thanks we had fun too. I think you’ll be seeing more in this vein over the 80% news model. We may bring them up now and again but it will be less news centric and more life / ALTERED Geek.

    2. I agree this was a good ep. Some legit conversation going on. Insightful listen.

  2. Yes I agree that Hollywood has way to many sequels and reboots but you can’t completely blame them. We are part of the problem because people don’t go see movies unless its tied to something else anymore. Look at this weekend. Interstellar came out and its by one of the biggest director’s of our day and no one went to it. Same thing with Pacific Rim. Great movies people are not going to because they are not superhero movies. We can’t complain there isn’t enough good Science Fiction and then not support it when it comes out.

    1. Totally agree. We are to blame. However it also depends on someone’s writing and directing or whether you like the castings. For me a lot of that goes hand in hand. Not to say I won’t watch a film but I’m hesitant. I love my nostalgia films but don’t necessarily want to see them return.

      1. When it comes down to it geeks just need to be more willing to step outside their comfort zone and be open to new ideas and new creators. The geek community used to take the weird and wacky things the general population tended to ignore and lift it up to become popular. We don’t do that anymore. I think of something like Attack the Block. That movie should be huge. It appeals to the same sensibilities as a lot of great 80’s Sci Fi but no one talks about it. We rather talk about a trailer for a movie that is not coming out for two years. I am part of that problem too. I just makes me sad more geeks don’t self-reflect.

    2. I was shocked that Interstellar didn’t do better. People came out to support Inception but not Interstellar? Made no sense. Maybe it was too intellectual for some people.

  3. So I agree with you all that online communication has opened the door to a great deal. People who never met in real life can get to be best friends through Twitter, Facebook, or whatever. Gotta say though I would never could imagine myself using that as my prime form of communication. Yea there may be jerks out there when you go outside your door but I’m not going to let some dude who might ask me for change at the street corner stop me from experiencing life. I’m sorry but the internet can’t replace true human interaction. Speaking as someone who has tried long distance relationships they don’t work. At least not for me. I couldn’t imagine shunning actual human contact in favor of living a solely virtual life.

    1. Not to speak for the others but for myself, I still like human interaction. It seems with working and school and a family I have little time to venture out to do anything. Not to mention most of my friends have moved. I would say I am closer to my podcasting buddies but real human interaction is needed for the growth of ourselves to survive.

    2. That was just an example I was using…. saying that I have 1 focus from point A to point B and I ignore STRANGERS on the street. I was taught by the 80s media that you don’t talk to people you don’t know. Granted going into restaurants, businesses and stuff that is different. I’m pretty much a home body. And my interactions are mostly online… unless those few times each month where I have to go out. That’s just what my life has become, and I’m happy for the most part.

      1. I mean that’s good that you are happy and everything. Just the way you guys sounded on the podcast made me think you just shun society. Like those people you see with dead cats on hoarders lol.. But if that’s that way you prefer it more power to you.

      2. I am similar to you. I find I can be more honest with people online than in real life.Not honest like bashing but more open. There’s less judgement I think. With people you know of course. Strangers will judge the hell out of you at the drop of a hat online.

        1. Yeah you are right, but the thing is… you can meet and get along with more people online… I feel… because we surround ourselves with like minded people to us. OR for example we watch a youtuber or listen to a podcaster… they are giving us their opinions and we can either agree or not. Building friendships online sooo much easier for me than in real life. I truly believe my life is a radio station…. wiith as much talking I do in the many many podcasts I do… there’s variety of friends everywhere!

  4. I would be all for less reboots and remakes of everything. Especially when we are rebooting things like Spider-Man that are less then 10 years old.
