Episode 25:  "Bombasterpiece Theatre Presents Ghostbusters"

 

Bombast Podcast is back from the dead to discuss the movie Ghostbusters, this time with our friend Rayne.  Although you could sync the movie (now streaming on netflix) with the podcast, you probably don't have to.

Welcome to episode 3 of Phil's self-flagellation podcast, the Peter Browncast.  Today Peter is stuck wandering New York City late at night and has nothing to do so he reminisces about the time he met the Pastor that officiated his mother's funeral.  It's probably more fun than that sounds!

Episode 24 -"How Batman Got His Groove Back"

During this episode we are joined by friend of the show, Janine, and that can only mean one thing:  some scintillating movie talk.  The beginning of this episode starts with a discussion of music and other topics, including Lupe Fiasco, Pete Rock, and CL Smooth, Mumford and Sons, Trucking School, and the Motivational techniques that going to trucking school requires.
Later on, we talk about summer movies; Iron Man 3 is discussed at length, but we also discuss Star Trek Into Darkness, The Purge, Fruitvale Station, This is The End, and The Wolverine. Ben Affleck and Batman are talked about, so yeah.  That is a thing we talk about.  We also have a sidebar about product placement and the Star Wars brand.  To finish off the show, we stage the return of Bombast Midnight Theatre, with a dramatic reenactment of a 2003 unproduced Batman/Superman screenplay.

Episode 19 -"John Porcellino Cartoonist Interview"

This is a pretty mellow show, but I think it's a good one.  John Porcellino is the cartoonist between the long-running King-Cat mincomic series, and many collections and other books. One of them that Phil and I (Matt) recently read is Perfect Example, a true-life high school story, that has been described as a coming-of-age story which reads like a "goodbye to the familiar Road trips, drunken concerts, and late-night make-out sessions."  According to cartoonist Chris Ware, "John Porcellino's comics distill, in just a few lines and words, the feeling of simply being alive."
We caught up with John Porcellino before he went to SPX, one of the mainstays on the indie comics convention calendar.  Phil and I talk with John P. about self-publishing, what he gained from his art school experience at NIU, the difference between the early days of alternative comics (the 80/90s) and now.  We also talk about doing comics for the love of it, and learning from the artwork (it really applies to writing, drawing, and music, as well) while you are making it.  And since we share the stateline region with John, I had to ask him about the changes from living in an urban/suburban environment to living in the more rural environment of South Beloit.
