It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck--the podcast that recorded this nonsense at DragonCon in a live performance known as "Need Coffee Presents Your Weekend Justice Show of Shows." There's discussion. There's games. There's the Sound Board Live. There's straining to hear things. It's just like you were there. It's the same podcast but with a couple hundred more people thrown into the mix. There has never been a trainwreck like this one. Not in the history of trains.
So the madness that was DragonCon 2013 has come and gone. And as we wake up in our respective car trunks, oversized pieces of luggage and coffins--we struggle to remember the extended convention weekend that was.
Luckily, we have photos. And videos. And audio. And those will be happening as we can slam them into a somewhat respectable (for us) form. In addition to multiple panels where we got to see many, many of you, we did our experimental Weekend Justice #200 live recording and everyone had a chaotic good time. We also recorded another live Solve This, which will be hitting a lot sooner than the last one. And we had our annual Need Coffee Group Therapy session.
Some highlights, though. We have had it underscored just how incredibly sexy you, our fans, are. That picture up there is of the giant cookie that greeted me when I arrived on the scene at Make the Bad Men Part I. Yes, I know: I should have taken the picture before we began mauling it. But I've been on a diet for a while and...well, you know, giant cookies aren't something you purchase for yourself regardless, right? It was amazing. And I ate way too much of it. Took me back to high school age birthdays, so it did.
Coming to DragonCon this weekend? Want to seek out Team Need Coffee as we scatter amongst the madness? Here's your guide. Follow our Needcoffee feed for last minute updates. Where available, everyone's first mention has their Twitter ID linked up--so feel free to follow folks for their latest weirdness. (Except in cases where they've been added to an earlier panel than I first had them--so they're Twitter-linked on here somewhere. I'm old and lazy.) As always, this list is subject to change without notice or sense.
As always, inevitably, there will be formatting and other stupid errors on this schedule. If you find something wrong, just ping me and we'll get it fixed. Danke.
Ver. 1.01 - 8/26 - Tuffley's full schedule added; Wolven's full schedule fixed; Bad Men 2 fixed; other appearances by Kidlet, Kim & Leigh added.
Ver. 1.02 - 8/26 - Rox's Alt History Sherlock Holmes panel added on Friday.
Ver. 1.03 - 8/27 - Rob's 7pm Peter Davison panel on Friday added.
It's Episode #162 for The World's End, in which our protagonist discusses how this film shares and shunts all the right things from its older trilogy-siblings, how Wright/Pegg/Frost have pulled off a genre trifecta and how John Wyndham is probably somewhere having a pint in their honor.
[[ More This Way... ]]
Word-a-Week is dead. Long live Word-a-Week. Wordmeister Aaron Poole did it his way and he sends this feature off into the sunset in style. Granted, as you will see, he spent an entire month of Need Coffee video podcasting budget on this episode, so we'll need to talk to him about that. But regardless. For the final time: accept no substitutes! This word is one you can use! In conversation! You can even use it on Twitter and Facebook! And the best part is: this word is free for you to use and share! It is guaranteed DRM-free.
Okay, yes, it's a second series. Consider this your appetizer for the upcoming second series of Solve This, the improvisational panel show and podcast that pits a panel of four experts to unravel the particular Gordian Knots that I place in front of them for your amusement. No, really, we're doing more of them. The damn chairman scripts are already written.
For this episode, we were recorded live in front of a studio audience (again, no, really) at DragonCon 2012. Special thanks to Jon Boutelle and The Unique Geek crew for getting us on tape. Special thanks also to Aaron Poole for editing this monster. Hire them both. Their rates are reasonable. And! We're doing another live performance/recording Sunday at DragonCon 2013...September 1st, 7pm at the Atlanta Ballroom in the Westin. So this gives an idea of what to expect.
This podcast generally covers music and other transgressions. This month's episode is manned by Prof. Tuffley and Dr. Rob Levy with Widgett Walls in the driver's seat, FSM help us all.
This episode's central topic is: money. Can anybody make money in the music industry anymore? Or is everybody just screwed? Also remembering Slim Whitman and J.J. Cale, a round-up of live music, filming at gigs, musician visas in Russia, David Cameron's mixtape, what's up with Deadmau5 and Wiley, what's up with Black Flag and litigation and why Mumford & Sons have proved there's no God.
It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck--the podcast that's going to record its 200th episode at DragonCon if it kills you.
