Geekspeak Episode 10: Showcase Spotlight #1

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Wed 23 Nov 2005 9:06 pm

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! To celebrate the holidays and Geekspeak hitting double digits, here is a special extended edition of Geekspeak delving into one particular area of geekdom. I’m calling these special area specific episodes “Showcase Spotlights,” where I tackle one particular section of gaming, gadgets and more!

This week, I was lucky enough to be joined via phone by Bryan Deemer of The Comic Geek Speak podcast, devoted comic book reader and soon be podcaster Tobey Cook, and author of the Comic Geek Speak segment “Trying to get Ahold of Mario”…Mario Muscar! Our main topic through the episode is “Relationships in Comics.” We delve into how they effect the characters, and whether or not they do so in a good or bad way. We also delve into topics suc as House of M vs. Infinite Crisis, the series of Clone Saga essays known as The Life of Reilly, and much more! The episode clock in at a little over an hour and a half, so I hope you all sit back, relax, enjoy your Thanksgiving, and enjoy listening to the first double digits episode!

And as always, you can e-mail any questions and comments to speakgeekspeak@gmail.com, and the forums are still up and running. Next week we’re back to the usual format, and will once again be streaming live at the Brooklyn College Radio website.

Until then, enjoy your turkey, and thanks for downloading!

Geekspeak: Episode 8

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Fri 11 Nov 2005 3:06 pm

  • Information on the new web site and forums.
  • Sony Root Kit woes and the easiest way to avoid it.

  • Playstation 3 and used games might not like each other either.
  • An update on the Zelda III prototype thanks to Rated O.com (and apologies for pronouncing it Rate Do all podcast long), and it’s not a good one.
  • The state of comic books: House of M vs. Infinite Crisis (SPOILERS FOR HOUSE OF M AND INFINITE CRISIS #1 INSIDE)

New look, new web site, new forums, new…Geekspeak!

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Fri 11 Nov 2005 2:00 am

Hey everybody! Well, the transition has officially been made from Typepad over to the brand new Geekspeak web site, right here at speakgeekspeak.com! Typepad suited me well for the short time I was there, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone first starting out either as a blogger or as a podcaster. But now, 8 episodes in and an itunes feed later, Geekspeak has outgrown its Typepad address and moved on to bigger and better things. Not only is this a completely new web site as designed by the good folks over at Blogger, but there are also brand new forums! That’s right, Geekspeak now has a forum available at http://speakgeekspeak.com/forums. So anyone who enjoys the show and would like to be able to correspond with other listeners, and myself, then hop on over to the forums and sign up for an account.

And last but not least, each and every episode of Geekspeak to date is now available with ID3 tags included, for easier sorting in iTunes and other media players. And a gigantic thank you once again to my girlfriend Megan Balmos for the art used as the Geekspeak iTunes logo.

Anyway, just wanted to let you folks know what’s going on. I’m still tweaking the site to look proper in IE, but it looks quite lovely in Firefox. Episode 8 of Geekspeak is recorded and will be available sometime tomorrow afternoon. Until then, take care everybody, and I hope you all enjoy the new home!

Geekspeak: Episode 7 on the air!

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Thu 10 Nov 2005 5:31 pm

Apologies if I sound a bit out of this week, as I was running on not much sleep and I have been quite allergytastic all week. Also, be on the lookout for a change of web sites here at Geekspeak sometime soon. More information to come as it occurs. The e-mail address for Geekspeak is speakgeekspeak@gmail.com. Send all your questions, comments, and otherwise my way, and I’ll be more than happy to answer them.

Geekspeak: Episode 4

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Thu 10 Nov 2005 5:22 pm

Well, here it is folks. Infinite Crisis has finally begun, and Geekspeak has an interview with its artist, Phil Jimenez! This interview was recorded earlier this year, but touches upon topics including working with Geoff Johns for the first time, drawing the pivotal scene with Blue Beetle on “Road To Infinite Crisis,” the “Return of Donna Troy” miniseries, and his creator owned Vertigo title, “Otherworld.” I’m hoping to have future interviews with people inside the interview as time goes on, and I can certainly say that it was an absolute pleasure interviewing Phil. He is a very kind man who is open to any question you ask him.

So enjoy the interview, and Geekspeak will be back live next week. And remember, e-mail any questions and comments, audio or otherwise, to speakgeekspeak@gmail.com, and you can call 718-951-4444 if you want to ask anything while the show goes live, Thursdays from 6-7 on the web stream.
