A Creative Catastrophe: Timey Wimey

It’s been a tough transition to 50 to 60 hour work weeks. I have had little time to dedicate to the GeekyFaucet project, and the little time I have had I’ve used to share with my family and friends. As I sit here now, I have a half edited podcast and a half baked blog post, and sadly no idea when I’ll get either of them done. For this reason, I’m officially putting a hold on the podcast. I hope that the handful of listeners I have can understand my reasoning here. If I can’t put the time into getting a show recorded and edited each week than I certainly don’t expect any of you to wait around for new episodes. I hope to relaunch the show in the coming months with a shorter and more manageable format.

A very big thank you to the people that have been a part of the show in its first iteration. I look forward to having you be a part of the show in the future. I’ll be actively involved with Twitter, and I hope to continue guesting on many of the great shows that have been kind enough to have me in the past.

In the meantime, I hope that you will take the time to check out the great shows/blogs listed below. Some are from my friends at the Omega Nerds Network, and some are the other shows that I think are worth your time.

And lastly check out this great blog… It’s well written, entertaining, and insightful.

Listful thinking

Be talking to you again soon…

High Five/Low Five: Arrow: Season 1 (2012)

Over the weekend I got the itch to re-watch the pilot episode of the popular WB series “Arrow”.  As a fan of the show, I have maintained that the first season is near flawless.  It stands as one of the best examples of an episodic approach at live action comic book hero story telling.  In this edition of the High Five/Low Five I’ll look at the what made the first season great, and what I could have gone without.

I usually go on and on about how sequels are inferior to their predecessors.  Rarely does a film prove me wrong.  This spring I am hopeful, however.  Captain America: The Winter Soldier has a solid chance of being that film.
