episode number pic 36

I can adequately describe this episode in two words…

Mel Novak!

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.

Greetings, interwebz!

We continue our interviews from Epic Con today with part two! And, as I’m sure you’ve discovered, we are doing a weekly release for all of these! That’s because they are just too awesome to wait for!

We start off with John and Bea from World Paranormal Investigations going over their report from the investigation from Episode 27 of the Montgomery County Fairgrounds. I’ve been waiting for this report for about two months!

Then Andrew B. DeWar speaks with some of the vendors at Epic Con to learn more about their wares! He speaks with Curious Octopus (https://www.etsy.com/shop/CuriousOctopus) about their hand made clothing, as well as Twisted Wire art (http://www.twistedwire.us/) where we learn more about the inspiration behind the work.

We then speak with Jenny Janetty who is an up and coming scream queen type actress who is also a professional model who just also happens to be a wrestler! We learn how she fell into acting and talk about other nerdy stuff!

And lastly, we do some cross promoting with Zombie TakeOver T. V. (http://ztotv.com/) our booth neighbors at Epic Con! We talk to each other about how we all got started doing what we do!

We have more interviews to bring you, so don’t go away!

episode number pic 22

As you may remember, Mr. and Mrs. Uncommon Geek went to Derby City Comic Con 2014 a week or so ago and met some pretty awesome people!

And, if you recall, we mentioned that we recorded some interviews!

In this episode of The Uncommon Geek podcast, be amazed as we interview… Chuck Moore: The guy behind the con! Joe Gilbert and Willis Alvey: who are some of the minds behind the wickedly awesome comic book, TETHER! Les Garner: The god who created Apocalypse Girl! And, John Wilson: The man, the legend, the one who keeps Chuck sane and co-owner of Comic Related!

We both had an amazing time, and can not wait to go back again next year! Below, please find the links to all the things!

Derby City Comic Con: http://derbycitycomiccon.com

TETHER: http://tethercomic.com

Les Garner’s Apocalypse Girl: http://www.sixus1.com and http://skystormstudio.com

Comic Related: http://comicrelated.com

Today’s song, I felt, needed a little bit more of a geek flare, so I chose “Otaku Help Line” by Victory Road from the album “Forever the Optimist”  licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported license.

Apocalypse Girl cover ADJUST

Derby City Comic Con. While I am not new to attending conventions, I am still somewhat new to the comic book scene. I often confuse Marvel with DC and have only really been interested enough in one or two story lines to want to purchase a serial comic at a local comic book store.

The thing that will get me to buy a thing to read generally rests on the story that it can tell. I have read many types of books by many different authors since I was very young.  Since entering the world of adult responsibilities, the main thing to change in my reading habits is that I have become more discriminating about what I read. Since I have less time to read for pleasure, it had better be a good story worth reading.

While I was wandering around the showroom floor at Derby City, I had the opportunity to meet and talk with Les Garner who is working on his first full graphic novel which is titled Apocalypse Girl and will be published in the future by SkyStorm Studio.  He was offering for sale the introduction of the story of Apocalypse Girl, as well as some of the art and pages that are already completed.

The encounter went a little something like this…*
