Siskoid Radio: Geek Out! - February 18th

"If you have more than two game consoles, and one of them requires cartridges you have to blow into, you might be a geek..."

Episode 5 tonight! More comics, more movies, more gaming, more music inspired by all that good stuff. If you're in the mood, the show also hijacks #GeekOut for the duration, where the silly comments fly. As usual, if you couldn't listen (the online feed was down) or understand the French interventions, here's the episode's playlist, with You-Tube links where available.

Intro tune: Doctor Who IX - Murray Gold
Bulle, envole toi - Groovy Aardvark (based on a French claymation show from my youth, the show's on You-Tube, but the song isn't on the Nets)
Geek News: The headlines included Marvel's piracy leak and Benedict Cumberbatch's rise to stardom (if only because I love saying his name).
On est tous extra terriens - Sttellla (sorry, another one without web presence)
Comics round-up: Basically a few of the week's tweeted comic book reviews.
Aquaman's Story - Ookla the Mok
Wong Fei Hung (the Once Upon a China Theme)
Comics recommendation: Infinite Kung Fu (my capsule review)
Kung Fu Fighting - Carl Douglas
Je t'aime tant - Julie Delpy
Movie recommendations: A trilogy of sorts from Richard Linklater and starring Ethan Hawk and Julie Delpy - Before Sunrise, Before Sunset and Waking Life
A Waltz for a Night - Julie Delpy
Geek Band: Kirby Krackle!
Comic Shop - Kirby Krackle (feat. GMK the Great & Kristina Horner)
Great Lakes Avengers - Kirby Krackle
Super-Powered Love - Kirby Krackle
Whatever Happened to Pong? - Frank Black
Geek 101: This week, we talk about the evolution of video games, with a particular focus on old school gaming
Génération Atari - Kermess
Le Cable de la TV - Cayouche (I promised the audience I'd asburdly play something from Acadian country star/beer drinker Cayouche - this is what I came up with, but I'm afraid it's not anywhere online)
Plateau-Télé - Aldebert (the second part of a "TV addiction" twofer)
Goodbyes and your Doctor Who theme remix of the week:
Doctor Who Theme (Live) - Orbital (a classic, and though it's not the performance I played, I'm giving you the link the one in which Matt Smith participated)

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.
