#006 - Cold Wars, Warm Hearts, and Hot Young Empaths

…in which our fearless podcaster's head is about to explode. It's been a rough couple of weeks, but he was able to navigate thru the turbulence and deliver a double-header review of "Cold War" and "Hide". Topics include suspect or nonexistent accents and mispronunciations of fictional planets, the quest for the perfect Doctor Who episode, more Clara speculation, happiness as a clumsy metaphor for procreation, and mysterious laughter.

You may have noticed that episode 3 of the podcast is currently missing from the RSS feed. I expect it to turn up 30 years later in a basement in Hong Kong. But seriously, I'll explain why the episode is missing at another time.

And I swear that a new podcast episode is coming. Hopefully by this Friday night at the latest. I still need to record the review for "Hide", and my next free moment will be tomorrow night. I have lots of things to say about this episode, and *SPOILERS* they're mostly positive.

Coming soon...

Rehearsals resume for "The Timey Wimey Fantastic Brilliant Extravaganza (Geronimo!)" We've gone thru most of the blocking and are currently working on the songs. Next week is when the hard work and long hours really begin. Can't wait (and no, I'm not being ironic - I am looking forward to working on this).

Details on ticket sales/dates will soon be posted to The Right Brain Project's website.

Also coming soon is the next podcast episode. Besides rehearsals, work and life stuff have taken precedence this week. So next week will be a "double header" review podcast of the recently screened "Cold War" and the upcoming "Hide".

Stay tuned....

#005 - Ring Modulation

…in which The Doctor is too stingy to give up his screwdriver, Clara is too good at preserving her leaf collection, the TARDIS' translator circuits aren't working, and you can apparently breathe in outer space. Also, more rambling about the 50th Anniversary special. All of this in less than 30 minutes. PROGRAMMING NOTE: Since this week's Doctor Who had way too much Murray Gold music, there will be no bumper music on this week's podcast.

new painting and podcast notes

Along with being a podcaster, musician, and now actor/voiceover guy, I'm also a visual artist who works with acrylic on canvas. This is my latest work, a portrait of the lovely Karen Gillan (Amy Pond). It is currently hanging in our dining room next to the liquor cabinet and my cabinet of Sci-Fi collectibles.

Taking this Saturday morning off to get things done around the house. Tonight - new Doctor Who. Tomorrow - recording review podcast. Last week I did recording and editing for the last episode all in one weekend, which left me no time to get anything else done. And with rehearsals for the show starting up, my time will be even more sparse. So the plan is to record review episodes on Sunday, edit them during my lunch hour at work and an hour before bed, and have the episodes ready to drop by mid-week.

Also, a special promotion. Once I get 30 "likes" (followers) on the podcast's Facebook page, I will release something special exclusively to my Facebook followers.

Enjoy the weekend. - JB
