Siskoid Radio: Geek Out! - March 3rd

"If you left a sonic screwdriver pen at my place last week, you might be a geek..."

Episode 7 and my 4000th post! As usual, two things: 1) #GeekOut is the hashtag on Twitter for the silliness of following a radio show live, and 2) if you couldn't listen or understand the French interventions, here's the episode's playlist, with You-Tube links where available.

Intro tune: Doctor Who IX - Murray Gold
Man or Muppet - Jason Segel & the Muppets
Geek News: The headlines included legal news on the newest Tintin au Congo decision and MacFarlane vs. Gaiman, as well as obituaries for Golden Age artist Sheldon Moldoff, and Monkee front man Davy Jones.
The Monkees Theme - The Monkees
Comics round-up: What starts as a few of the week's tweeted comic book reviews turns into a rant about Justice League.
Henchman - Kirby Krackle
Comics recommendation: Robert Kirkman's Irredeemable Ant-Man (more in my most recent edition of Old 52)
Foux du Fafa - Flight of the Conchords
Film recommendation: Hirokazu Koreeda's After Life
The Fly - Les Mouches (not surprisingly, this indy Quebec song is not available on the 'Net)
Geek Band: William Shatner!
Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - William Shatner
Real - William Shatner
Major Tom (Coming Home) - William Shatner
Kung Fu Dunk Theme - Jay Chou
Les Cryoliens arrivent en ville - L'Orbital Spoutnik (another indy song from Quebec, a short ska piece, that isn't on the web)
Geek 101: Audio plays, in particular, Big Finish's Doctor Who-related audio stories (I played a clip from Marc Platt's Spare Parts and the song following as examples)
Gallifreyan Buccaneer - Colin Baker (from the Big FInish audio Doctor Who and the Pirates by Jacqueline Rayner, somebody did a nice montage for it on You-Tube too!)
Psyché Rock - Pierre Henry (the original Futurama song!)
Astérix est là - Plastique Betrand (a druidic two-fer)
Le chant des druides - Manau
Goodbyes and your Doctor Who theme remix of the week:
Whorythmics - JeX

The show's on CKUM Radio every Saturday between 7 PM and 8:30 PM Atlantic Time (-4 GMT) on 93,5 FM in the Moncton area, or online, while capacity isn't exceeded, HERE.
