Siskoid Radio: Geek Out! - January 28th

"If you're wearing earrings made from polygonal dice, you might be a geek..."

Second show of the season, getting into the groove of things. Last week, I was getting used to the (in places jury-rigged) studio, and those new-fangled computers they now use instead of, you know, CD players and turn tables. I also didn't know how badly I would want to run at the mouth on geek subjects, so I've made adjustments there as well. As usual, if you couldn't listen or understand the French interventions, here's the episode's playlist, with You-Tube links where available.

Intro tune: Threshold 8-bit version - Brian LeBarton (seemed to work out last time)
White and Nerdy - Weird Al Yankovic
Geek News: The headlines included Captain Marvel's rebranding as Shazam, Tintin snubbed at the Oscars, and Monty Python get back together in animation.
L'Aventurier - Indochine (about pulp/comic hero Bob Morane)
Les Daltons - Joe Dassin (Lucky Luke's main antagonists even show up in the 1970s video!)
Comics recommendation: Locke & Key (made my point clear in this week's Old 52)
Particle Man - They Might Be Giants
Comics round-up: Basically a few of the week's tweeted comic book reviews.
Scott Pilgrim - Plumtree
Movie recommendation: Norwegian Ninja (capsule review later today in This Week in Geek)

Up next, the two French songs from Guitar Hero III:

This Fantasy World (D&D) - The Doubleclicks
A bit of science fiction...
