Canned Air #190 What If…Disney Never Existed?

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5470617/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 try something new this week and bring you our first ‘What If?’ episode! Based on the same concept as the Marvel comics of the same title, we will be taking significant moments from throughout pop culture and discussing the different possible outcomes of that event if a few minor details were changed. So to kick it off, we decided to start with Walt Disney!

 
There’s hardly a soul alive who hasn’t heard the name Disney, or who hasn’t had some exposure to the brand. This entertainment titan has its name on many different networks and properties you probably didn’t know about. So this week we propose, What If? Disney Never Existed? How different of a world would we live in without Disney to usher in the age of animation, introduce a new way of family vacationing to the world, and the innovations in both areas that have changed both industries dramatically? The effects run much deeper than you may realize. Come on in and take a glimpse at what a world without Walt Disney might be like.

Canned Air #189 The Threat Continues…

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5453542/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 start this week by paying tribute to the man behind the cowl, Adam West. Adam introduced Batman to a new generation of fans in the 60’s and put his own heart and soul into the Bat, which still remains with the character to this day. With all of his different screen and voice rolls over the years, Adam has left a mark on nearly everyone who’s seen his work. So come on in and help us pay tribute to the Bright Knight!

We are joined by Mark Schmidt of StratumComics.com to talk about issue five of his comic series The Threat, running on Kickstarter until June 29th. In the not too distant future, humanity is dying at apocalyptic rates. The only solution is through Recombinant DNA, which causes mutations in a small percentage of the population. These people become know as VIRALS.
As cybernetically enhanced humans patrol the streets of Houston, preserving a hellish segregation, those who work for ANITEC are protected in their lives of luxury, while the rest are left to scrape together what life they can in the dangerous under-streets of the city. But there are still some, who will rise to seize a better future, becoming a THREAT to those who would keep them down.

Mario is the head of the East Coast and the series covers his battles as he attempts to seize control of the city. He will wage wars, strike alliances, and bring his form of justice to the streets. But as he makes his play for power he is opposed by many.

Canned Air #181 Kindred Homecomings

[iframe style=”border:none” src=”//html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5290924/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]

Throw on some gun glasses and sunscreen as we celebrate the arrival of summer. We welcome Todd Tochioka of SnugComics.com to the show as we remember our favorite summer movies in this week’s Retro Roundtable. Whether they were made and marketed as summer movies, or they just remind you personally of summer, we remember the best and worst of the films that make us feel like spending a day at the beach.
 
Then we turn our attention to Todd to discuss Kindred Homecomings, his comic available on SnugComics.com. The comic is about Jane Borchardt, a hard working actress living in Los Angeles, CA. The daily grind can get exhausting after a while, so when she unexpectedly receives word that she’s inherited her estranged grandmother’s coastal property in the sleepy area of Solano County, she packs her weekend bag and heads north up the Pacific Coast Highway.
 
Although the house is not in livable condition, Jane decides to clean and fix up what she can in order to sell the property as soon as possible. At night, there are strange noises coming from within the walls, and with the help of the county sherriff, Malinda Claire, Jane soon discovers it’s something much more terrifying than rats in the walls.
 
Featuring 2017 ICFFA Actress of the Year, Jamie Bernatte (@jamiebernadette), as Jane Borchardt and the Unwritable Rant podcast’s Juliette Miranda (@morningneurosis) as Sheriff Malinda Claire, Kindred Homecomings, will be released as a full-color three-issue limited comic book series.  Head over to Snug Comics to pre-order your copy and check out a few pages from the book as well!
