Episode 3 - "IOU Rope and Gany Mead, Callisto" - I'm going for the weirdest podcast title ever. We have a lot of geek talk today, celebrity birthdays. SUCK IT SHELLY DUVAL! Marvel character diversity, Juno goes to Jupiter, Chuck wisely likes Ip Man III, but can he spell Ip? Can Steve divide 124 by 2? Sulu has a husband!
Okay, quick lesson: the cartoon faces drawn on our iTunes artwork, that's HeroMan and Punkman. While bored college students living in the same dorm, Chuck and I created these "Spy vs. Spy" competitive super-beings. Why do you need to know this? Well, this episode begins our listener-interactive story: "The Return of HeroMan and Punkman!" (stay until after the credits). www.geeklifecrisis".com On Twitter: @geeklifecrisis @geeklifechuck @geeklifesteve firstname.lastname@example.org Also, go read our ridiculous reviews on iTunes and add one of your own... next episode we will start reading all creative reviews. #BringBackHarryMudd
For the growing Geek Life Army! I think I can honestly say it's doubled in size in the last couple of weeks. Thanks to both of you.
Episode Two (It was 6 for us, but it's 2 for you.)
"The Worst Scotty" (It was called "Geekpourri Wannabe" originally; I called an audible.)
As we turned on the microphones to record, this one was supposed to be a "chatting it up" potpourri episode where Chuck and I riff on whatever current geek culture trends we liked. What happened was, we had a bit too much fun with the celeb geek birthday bit.
We have a discussion on the crazy tragic passing of Star Trek's Anton Yelchin (Pavel Chekov from the ST:Kelvin timeline), and successfully answer the question "What will Star Trek do without Yelchin? How can they make more Trek movies without this Chekov?"
Celebrity Geek Birthdays include: Chris Isaak, Aubrey Plaza, Nick Offerman, Chris O'Donnell, JJ Abrams, Mel Brooks, Steven Seagal, David Alan Greer, Pamela Anderson, Margot Robbie, Mike Tyson, Elon Musk, the good ol' USA, and more. I told you we got carried away with that part.
Re: "Elon Musk". Google magically revealed to me the name Elon comes from the Bible and means oak. (I of course did not actually check the Bible.) So "Oak Musk" is that guy's name! I wonder what other first names work that well in the Musk fam?
Also in this episode:
**Thanks to our friend Pete's advice we vastly improved the sound quality, and now we're a real boy! (Did you know Pinnochio becoming a real boy is a Jesus Christ allegory? Look it up!)
**I yell at Chuck for reading the red notes. Damn him!!
**And, for the first time, sound clips. Yay?
Enjoy our growing pains Geek Life Army! DO IT!

Coming next episode: HeroMan and Punk Man
SPOILERS FOR DCU REBIRTH ISSUE #1. This is one of our lost episodes. (Eventually, I found it, so here you go.) In this episode Chuck and Steve (that's us), we turn the pages of DC Universe "Rebirth" Issue #1. We follow Kid Flash Wally West as he peeps on Batman in the Guano Cave. What are you watching on those 9 screens, Bruce?? And then we follow Wally through his own "It's a Wonderful Life" story, just to see who really loved him, who he could reach out to, and who couldn't be bothered. Pretty sure Captain Boomerang is a better buddy to Wally West than AquaMan. We ask questions such as: how does Flash get his pizzas to deliver to kids he rescues? Is Dr. Manhattan powerful enough to create a DC universe that lasts longer than the new 52? Hey DC, any regrets naming Robin, Dick? And, WTF, does the DCU overuse the young ward boy sidekick storyline? Flash/Kid Flash. Blue Beetle/ew Blue Beetle, Batman/Robin, The Atom/random college kid named Ryan, Aquaman/Aqua Lad, etc, etc. Join us as we use sarcastic humor to explore the new DC diversity. Tweet us your thoughts or any goofy crap: #GeekLifeCrisis, @GeekLifeCrisis, @GeekLifeSteve, and @GeekLifeChuck. Find us on Facebook. Listener input will always be reviewed and discussed.
