Today, we bring you  a two-fold of firsts!

First, an interview with our very first band, Cursed of Cassandra!

And second-first (?) is that this episode falls on the day of an event that is mentioned in the podcast! So, you have the whole wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey thing going on!

That’s right! Curse of Cassandra, Dayton, Ohio’s electronica band joins Troy and Neo at Uncommon Geek HQ to talk music, how they all met, how they got started… and other things, as you will soon hear! Basically, in Uncommon Geek podcast normal fashion, we get off topic!

And tonight, Programs, you can see Curse of Cassandra in concert with High 5 R!ot at the Therapy Cafe in downtown Dayton, Ohio! Be advised that it is an 18+ show. Info about the show can be found at http://www.reverbnation.com/show/14602140

And stay tuned at the end of the episode to hear Curse of Cassandra’s song “Hunger” off their new album’Night!” Want to buy the album? Check out http://www.cdbaby.com/Artist/CurseOfCassandra !

Why Christmas reminds me too much of The Hunger Games.


I wrote this blog post some time ago, but never got around to posting it. At the time, I was exposed to a large quantity of Christmas music. I did not had much choice in this matter as it was played at work. I did not choose to listen to Christmas music, and have not willing listened to any significant amount of Christmas music for a long while. It is a very rare event when I do decide to choose to listen to any holiday music. I have had the winter season holiday music thrust upon my open ears in such quantities that I cannot find enjoyment in many of the most common carols in which others find such joy.

That is not to say that I hate all songs about Christmas. I enjoy listening to “The Carol of the Bells” as well as “Panzer Klaus.” I just prefer to not listen to most Christmas music the majority of the time.

 **Sorry for misspelling the word “video”**

Yes! At long last, The Uncommon Geek YouTube channel has OFFICIALLY launched!

We will be launching with our flagship show, “The Uncommon Newscast” hosted by none other than The Uncommon Geek himself, Troy Copes! We will bring you non-mainstream geeky news from across the internet that has been overshadowed by DC, Marvel and other big names in the industry.

In the near future, we will be adding two more shows for you to enjoy!

Neo Ethereal will be hosting “Would You like to save?” where you take the plunge into an expanse of game reviews of titles old and new, speed runs, and a general geek-out of all things gaming. Featuring original recorded game play, entire play through as well as walkthroughs and tutorials!

Andrew B. DeWar will be the host of “ The Uncommon Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy.” An in depth guide to all things within the Nerdosphere! From reviews on games, books, television and movies, to thoughts and opinions on the latest in the worlds of technology and science, he will leave no rock on Dagobah unlevitated!

Please like this video and subscribe! And please let us know what you think!
