Greetings, Programs!

Today (or tonight depending on when you’re listening) on the podcast we have James Pitt of Dayton Artist Movement Productions in for our very first geekout episode since being R3C0NF1GUR3D!

We ask him”The Question”, ask him a little about himself, and then begin talking about and geeking out on science fiction, and ever so lightly brush on the idea of conspiracy theories!

Check out the Dayton Artist Movement Productions Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/Dayton-Artist-Movement-Productions-500377143637457/ and give it a like! Let him know that you heard him on the podcast!

Episode number art 39

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 !

Today’s intro song is “Space 1337” by Or4 released under a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License!

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.
