In 1991, Mario & Luigi were forced to make room for a new platform adventure and a spunky new mascot from Sega: Sonic the Hedgehog! The blue blur took the gaming world by storm, and his first adventure stole my gaming heart and never looked back! Continue Reading »

*This episode contains mature language*
And at last, we have reached the end of our Epic Con journey…
And what a fun journey it was!
And it seems fitting that we end it with an interview with one of Boss Monkey’s old friends…
Troy and David have known each other since middle school and play catch up in this personal podcast from Epic Con! David was part of the professional wrestling demo and it was just a crazy convergence of fate that they ran into each other!
It was awesome getting to catch up with David after almost 15 years!

I can adequately describe this episode in two words…
That’s right! Today, we have Mr. Mel Novak on the podcast! You will recognize him playing villains in movies like his character Blue Eyes in “Black Belt Jones” with Jim Kelly and Stick in the movie “Game of Death” with Bruce Lee among many others!
A word of warning about the audio… in the middle of recording, a wrestling match started up, and in a few spots it becomes difficult to hear what is being said.
Mel was an absolutely amazing guy to have on the podcast! I really want to get him back on sometime because their are more questions I would have liked to ask that, at the time, I didn’t think to ask. And Mrs. Uncommon Geek gave him a cupcake!
Mel also has a Ministry where he goes to prisons and preaches to inmates on Skid Row. You can find out more about him and his Ministry at his web site at http://melnovak.com/new/
I wanted something special for today’s episode, so I used the music from Episode 10. “Stormsong” by Vince Kaichan which is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
