I Have Arrived!

Posted in My Life, Pop Culture

My buddy Adam asked me a couple of weeks ago if I wanted to be on the podcast he and his friend Peter produce, NerdGeekDork. The subject this time around was Robocop, so there was no was I was going to turn him down.

We taped the episode last Wednesday night and it premiered this afternoon. In all the years I was on the radio, I still have an awkwardness to hearing my own voice. So, I skimmed the episode and found I appear more toward the end.

In any event, it was a fun time and I hope I get asked to come back in the future to talk about Alien or maybe the Flash or something. My thanks to Adam and Peter for thinking of me.

You can listen to the episode here.

Babylon 5

Babylon 5

I’ve been having an itch to watch Babylon 5 again. The only thing that’s stopped me so far has been the length. The show ran for five seasons and each season had something like 22 episodes. So it’s a major time investment to delve back into that world.

Well, I finally succumbed last weekend. I decided to start with season two this time. The first season is important for establishing characters and future plot threads, but it also has the most one-off stories. Season two is also when Bruce Boxleitner comes on board, giving the series its true leading character.

I’m trying to plow my way through the second season before we leave for Munich next week. I’m nearly there. I just hope my interest remains during our vacation. I’d hate to come back from Germany and not continue watching probably my favorite television series of all time.
