Welcome back, Geek O’ Lanterns!
Geek Cuisine is from Glenn this week, as Carly has found Sour Dude’s Sour Straws in four flavors! Find out if apple, strawberry, watermelon and blue raspberry makes us puke or pucker up. Brad tells the ghostly tale of the falling action figures and Christina gives a shout out to Phantom Dennis.
Today’s flavor of Guilty Pleasure is Grindhouse. Glenn gives us a history of the genre and shares his new screener copy of Mike Pecci’s Grindhouse Shorts. Glenn enjoys the comic book style of the multiple-covered dvd. Everyone loves the mood and style of the intro shot and opening menu of the dvd from this gritty photographer-turned-moviemaker. Glenn appreciates the composition and the artistry of this impressive presentation. Christina’s favorite part is the Mommentary, the commentary with his mom.
Arrrr! Glenn provides the second Geek Cuisine of the show, me matey, with Gummy Pirate Choppers! Christina is entirely creeped out by the realistic looking teeth, and the boys devolve into hysterics around the texture. Christina explains the hierarchy of handing out Halloween candy.
In closing, Christina is thrilled to be enjoying the glorious fall weather. Adam shares upcoming local theater, The Alley Theater, which will be playing Evil Dead The Musical for the Halloween season. We also discuss future geekness for Adams wee nephew. Glenn shares the exciting time to be a comic book geek with the plethora of movies coming out on blu-ray. Brad is glad that Green Lantern has mostly survived the DC Universe reboot and Glenn awaits the issue 2 numbers. Brad is glad to hear that soon DC Universe Online and Star Trek Online will be going free to play. As an “altaholic”, Glenn was missing his City of Heroes characters, so while he was happy it went free to play, he is lamenting the short list of character slots. Brad is wondering about Dragon Age 2, given that the lovely Eve Myles is a voice actress.
