Geekspeak Episode 15: Showcase Spotlight #2 arrives!

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Thu 29 Dec 2005 1:38 pm

Hey everybody! I hope that Christmas and Hanukah have been going quite well for all you folks out there. As a late holiday gift to you guys I’ve recorded a special TWO HOUR edition of Geekspeak! This second Showcase Spotlight focuses upon the topic of Retro Gaming, a topic near and dear to my heart, and plenty of other geeks out there as well.

My guests and I touch upon everything from arcades to consoles, to new compilations of old games, to PC gaming, to the Generation NEX, and everywhere in between. For this episode, I am lucky enough to be joined by Robert Welkner of the COIN-OP.TV Vidcast, as well as Tobey Cook from Seattle, WA, who is naktekh on the Comic Geek Speak forums.

As always, you can e-mail questions and comments to speakgeekspeak@gmail.com. Also, remember that the forums are always open, and don’t forget to vote for Geekspeak on Podcast Alley.

I hope that everybody has a Happy and a healthy New Year. Don’t party too hard now, y’hear? And of course, I hope you enjoyed the last Geekspeak of 2005 as much as I enjoyed recording it.

So until 2006, thanks for listening, and downloading too!

Episode 14: Ho Ho Holy Grenade Launchers Batman!

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Thu 22 Dec 2005 2:28 pm

Hey there folks. Episode 14 is here, and I am ready to give it to the masses. This epsiode was recorded on Wednesday, December 21 at the Brooklyn College Radio studio. Topics discussed include:

  • I’m in love with my AKG K240S headphones. Here’s a link for them at Amazon, and here’s the seller I got them from on ebay.
  • Movie Review: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.
  • Firefly: Is it really over? Entertainment Weekly says Joss says yes.
  • BUT WAIT!!! Joss says it was out of context! Ha! And for a better interview with Joss about Firefly, Buffy, and more check out this one done by Comcast.
  • Generation NEX: Retro is back!
  • X-Box 360 in Japan: Little buzz, small sales. A sign of things to come? Pictures of line comparisons are here, and a more in-depth article about the situation is here.
  • The Wind Up: So Damon’s a Yankee after all. Oy vey…

Well, I hope you folks enjoy this Geekspeak. Apologies if I sound a bit flat. This sort of weather + walking to school doesn’t quite agree with me. I am happy to say that Episode 15 sounds much better, and packs it in at a wholloping 2 full hours of Retro Gaming talk! Episode 15 will be released next week while I’m out of town enjoying the holidays.

The e-mail address for Geekspeak is speakgeekspeak@gmail.com, so send questions and comments my way, and the forums can still be found at www.speakgeekspeak.com/forums. I hope everyone has a very Happy Holidays, and until next week’s Showcase Spotlight release, take care and thanks for downloading!

Here we go, it’s Geekspeak time again! This episode of Geekspeak was recorded Wednesday, December 7th at the Brooklyn College Radio Studio, as there is currently a basketball game on Brooklyn College Radio, so I do not have my slot for today. But if you want to hear me talk sports, just put on the stream. I’ll be doing pre-game, halftime, and post-game for both games of the double-header tonight. Topics discussed include:

I expect the next episode to be live again on Brooklyn College Radio, but even if it is not, I’ll put out an episode for you folks as always because I like pleasing the listeners. 😉 The e-mail address for Geekspeak is speakgeekspeak@gmail.com, so make sure to send your questions and comments my way, and don’t forget to vote for geekspeak on Podcast Alley.

Well, I’ve got a basketball game to do, so I’ll end things here. Until next week, thanks to all my fellow geeks for listening!

Geekspeak: Episode 11.5 is here!

Blogged by Ian Levenstein as Uncategorized — Ian Levenstein Sat 3 Dec 2005 7:13 pm

Well, I’m sure nobody saw this coming. I had some time on my hands, so I put together a nice short extra episode of Geekspeak today, while sitting here at the computer in my comfortable pajamas. Hold the applause, please. The episode clocks in at about 20 minutes, and does have some spoilers for X-Men: Deadly Genesis, X-Men #178, and X-Men: The End, so please be warned.

This episode gets into comments made by Ed Brubaker in a Newsarama interview, which can be found here, about X-Men: Deadly Genesis, and what fans should expect out of the mini-series.

Anyway, I hope you folks enjoy this, as the production quality is 10 times better than my first .5 episode. That’s all I have to say other than thanks for downloading, and I’ll see you all Thursday!

Big week in geek indeed, and hopefully we’ll have another great one next week. You can e-mail questions, comments, and audio comments to speakgeekspeak@gmail.com, and the forums are also there for you all to enjoy. Also, I might be announcing a contest next week, but I will know for sure my next show. Anyway, it’s late and I’m a sleepy host, so I’ll end it here. We’ll be streaming at the Brooklyn College website once more next week along with the podcast release as always. Until then, thanks for listening!
