Canned Air #277 What If We Could Control The Weather?

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/8302661/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

This week we bring you an episode from our other new podcast, What If…! Check it out at WhatIfPod.com.

It’s no wonder the ancient world saw signs in the weather. A brutal storm or enduring drought could only be a sign that the gods are upset, right? If the harvest is great, and the weather fair, well, we must be doing something right! It wasn’t a foolproof system, though. No matter how many festivals you hold or lambs you sacrifice, you can’t make it rain (or make it stop).

Most of human civilization learned to work around this, and it’s kept us strong, clever, and prepared for sudden disaster, but not always happy.  Who hasn’t wanted to change the weather? Everyone’s seen a birthday or wedding ruined by a storm, or had their vacation grounded by sudden snow. If we had the means, we’d change the weather to suit not just our needs, but our moods.

Would that be a good thing, though? Could we balance the good of the environment with our own self-interest? Frankly, we already know the answer to that question is ‘no’, but bear with me…

Could we handle the responsibility of controlling the weather?

Canned Air #276 Metaphorical HER

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/8216219/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

We welcome comic creators James Maddox and David Stoll to the show to first help us recall different movie monsters in this week’s Retro Roundtable. It was this month in 1818 that Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein was published, so we look at what defines a “monster” and who throughout pop culture fits this description. Our lead candidate for debate? Darth Vader, monster or not? Let us know what you think on Facebook and Twitter!

Then we turn our attention to James and David to talk about their comic, Metaphorical HER. Humiliated and exiled, a poet builds an underground following within the ravenous rock scene through her enlightening poetry. Now, Laney and her friends fight against the white collar criminals who threaten their careers, all within a spectacle of visual metaphors. Head over to WebToons.com to check it out!

Hello to all of our loyal listeners! We decided to take the week off and enjoy the holidays a bit, but we dare not leave you empty handed! We bring you an episode of John Orlando’s podcast, PVDcast, where he interviews yours truly! I believe this interview and episode posted on John’s website PVDcast.com originally about a year ago. John interviews us about the show, what kind of equipment we use, the show’s origins, favorite moments, etc. This episode is a good way to get to know your Canned Air hosts a bit more, so throw on some headphones and give it a listen!

We welcome John Ward of ArbuitusFilms.com to the show to first help us remember all of the wonderful things Bruce Willis has done in this weeks Retro Roundtable. With Christmas having just passed, and everyone having probably watched Die Hard during the season, it only seemed fitting to pay homage. We look over Bruce’s movie career, his work on television, and even his album from the 80’s. That’s right, get it here!

We then turn our attention to John to discuss the release of issue 3 of his comic Scratcher, as well as OFFBEATS, hitting shelves this February. It’s Tintin meets Tarantino in this 1950’s crime noir! A young man tries to save a woman from a vicious street gang, but ends up needing to be rescued by a petty crook who introduces him to a whole new world. Get your copy February 2019!

We start this week by remembering some of our favorite soundtracks in our Retro Roundtable. Some of the best music to ever bless the airwaves came from television, movies, and video games. We discuss soundtracks like Pirate Radio, The Big Chill, Halo 2, and The Lion King. Let us know what your favorite soundtrack is on Facebook and Twitter!

We then welcome Ron Kasman to the show to discuss his comic The Tower of the Comic Book Freaks. Fourth of July, 1971.

Canned Air #271 Discontinued

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/7831712/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

We are first joined by comic creator Laszlo Tomasfi to help us recall discontinued toys, foods, businesses, and customs in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Inspired by the new show Discontinued, premiering on The CW December 16th, we remember some long lost beverages like Pepsi Blue, Squeeze-It, and Ecto Coolers, as well as businesses like ShowBiz Pizza Place and Blockbuster Video. If you can remember any products or businesses that don’t exist anymore let us know on Facebook and Twitter!

 Then we turn our attention to Laszlo to discuss The Observatory, the horror anthology presented by Caliber Comics. The Observatory is the 4th installment in Caliber Comics‘ anthology series, Caliber Presents. It collects the best of the flash fiction webcomic (then simply called Observatory) that ran between 2014 and 2017, and includes a brand new framing story, a gallery, a prose short story, and an introduction by horror author Mary SanGiovanni. Get your copy at CaliberComics.com.

Then we welcome Brian Volk-Weiss (The Toys That Made Us) back to the show to discuss his new show Discontinued, again premiering on The CW December 16th. Discontinued is a funny and informative look at the world’s most famous – and sometimes infamous – discontinued foods, toys, customs and businesses. Set in a mystical warehouse, YouTube star and self-proclaimed “Black Nerd” Andre Meadows takes viewers down memory lane recounting the rise and fall of these fallen pop culture titans, with the help of surprise special guests, “insider” experts, and a bevy of hilarious comics. Set your DVR’s people!

Canned Air #270 It Looks Back

We welcome comic creator Jamie Branham to the show to first help us name some cartoon movies that should be brought to life in this weeks Retro Roundtable. With the trailer for the live action Lion King being released, we see no reason why films like FernGully, The Land Before Time, Fantasia, and Black Coldren shouldn’t get the same treatment. And how about the more adult friendly films like Heavy Metal? Let us know what animated film you feel should get the live action treatment on Facebook and Twitter.

We then turn our attention to Jamie to talk about his comic It Looks Back, a unique mash-up of hard-boiled detective noir and Lovecraftian horror. Chicago. The Roaring Twenties. When private detective Brennan O’Sullivan is hired to investigate the mysterious death of a reporter, he follows his only lead – a jagged, cryptic symbol – and this will put him on a trail that will lead him to nightmarish visions, ghastly murders, and unknown horrors lurking at the edges of reality.

Canned Air #269 A Tribute To Stan Lee

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/7658762/height/100/width/480/thumbnail/no/render-playlist/no/theme/legacy/tdest_id/316455″ height=”100″ width=”480″ scrolling=”no” allowfullscreen webkitallowfullscreen mozallowfullscreen oallowfullscreen msallowfullscreen]

Hello and Happy Thanksgiving to all of our listeners. Chris Thomas of ConJunkies.com returns to the show this week to help us pay tribute to the father of Marvel, and everything we’ve loved for years, Stan Lee. Stan not only created some of the world’s most recognized superheroes, he carried the torch for comic lovers during times when comics weren’t “cool” and blamed for the troubled youth of the day. If not for Stan we wouldn’t have the comic con experience, heroes that deal with the same problems we deal with day to day, and a universe built in reality that holds all the Marvel heroes, villains, and most importantly, you! Join us as we tell stories, play clips, and discuss the influence Stan has had on the world. Let us know on Facebook and Twitter if we forgot to mention something, or if you have a memory or story you’d like to share! ‘Nuff said, and to end in true Stan fashion, EXCELSIOR!

We are joined by Chris Thomas of ConJunkies.com to first help us remember our favorite military based games in this week’s Retro Roundtable. We remember games like 1942, Age of Empires, and Battlefield and discuss why they were so great. Then we look at the genre in general and debate if its a good way to educate people on actual war battles, or if it’s all done in bad taste. Let us know what you think on Twitter!

Then we turn our attention to Chris to discuss ConJunkies.com and everything they have to offer. This website is the perfect place to prep for an upcoming convention. Not only can you find about any kind of convention coming to your area, but you’ll also find tips and supply lists for attending the conventions. A must stop for any con goer!
