Winter Updates (Pt 1)

Hello and Welcome Back,
We have been a little behind in updating the Blog and I wish to Apologize to everyone. Between Being stressed out and sick things got backed up. So I want to take this moment to Update everyone about whats been going on and what is coming in the next Few Weeks. Mind you some isn’t a rant its just observations and some is flat out Anger, while some is curious updates.
Now over the past 3 weeks we had to revert to a podcast format and have re-aired a few past episodes due to illness and neighbors in my apartment building and my loud voice after 10pm.
But on a Lighter Note we Are in talks to Book Both Debbie Rochon and Alexia Anastasio to Come back on the show not Live but A Very Long Interview which will be uploaded as Parts 1-9 Yes I said 9 because these will be LONG interviews broken down into 20-25 min podcasts which will be uploaded with Live Commentary thrown in or live show’s in between.
In other Booking News we are Looking into Booking Some Experts in various Fields for some interviews on the show ranging from Paranormal, UFO, CryptoZoology,Myths, Greek Mythology,Hollow Earth, and Various other Film people that you wouldn’t normally expect us to approach.
Now This Coming Wed Dec 18, 2013 will be our Annual Christmas Show which we have been doing for years and always try to spice things up a bit. But this one is different as we are actually following a set schedule almost Like TV Does and we will be making this our Winter Finale and then return in Jan/February for 13 more episodes Before we Take a Season Finale. Of Course this is Subject to change without notice.
Now we wouldn’t be Nuts if we didn’t do something exciting and we are planning something.
We also want to make sure we get the word out to as many people as possible about the show. Currently all our big listeners vanished, and we need to get the word out on youtube,twitter,flickr,tumblr and every social media known to man. So therefore we ask all our followers and listeners to post about our show and to spread the word around…

You guys make the show so lets spread it around, just like that annoying zombie virus..

Corporate Meeting Results

So after meeting with the Corporate Investor’s this week, Which I don’t know why I still do since they refuse to give me more money for the show, They Agreed to my demands. So Coming October 1, 2013  will be the Official Launch of Our New Show and Website and Broadcast Date of Our First Live Show with a Surprising Celebrity Guest.
Now as I explained to The Board we were not planning a name change or anything but when we went to purchase our domain which was available for months, it suddenly was sold and put up for auction for $2500 after we announced our return.  I thought it was a fluke and had to convince the board to change the name, they agreed so I announced it and made preparations for the return, 2 days later that new name was again bought and put up for auction. Which Led me to believe someone on my friends list has actually tried to stop me from broadcasting which means I must be doing something right if someone is so threatened by my shows that they are actively trying to stop me from buying domains and websites and such. This is the Final time we will ever change our name as per agreement with Board of Directors we will have a Soft Launch Prior to Oct 1st with some trailers and teaser for the upcoming show including the Show Name Soon. Then After October 1st we will Have a Hard Core Launch Party Date and Time to be announced worldwide with a Celebrity Guest your not expecting…

The New Show will again be a round table discussion of Today’s Entertainment and Odd Topics Hosted by myself CrazyNick and Our Own Monster Man! We are seeking another cohost possibly female and few interns to help out but in case your Saddened we have not Forgotten Fifth Ring Radio’s Own FeralWolf our great friend and Golden CoHost has a reserved seat should time allow him or his new son untie him, to return he is forever welcome.

We Will be Running By Season with a Premiere and Season Finale then taking Time Off and prepare for the next season. During the course of the Season you will be able to Read Blog Updates from Friends of the Show Like Joe Flynn of the Joe Flynn Show, Ms Misery from Last Doorway Productions, Nikki Kreux from Triwar, among others…

The New Shows will be live and not recorded or available for downloading so anything can happen.

Spread the word and Keep an eye on our Facebook as it will change to a public page soon and be worldwide…
You never know what might happen, be it odd topics, Blog reports from our followers or News of the Twisted…

Thank You

CrazyNick

Calling For Convention Boycott for Cosplayer’s Right’s

Most of you know me or know of Me and know how we are involved as much as possible in the convention circuit by either going, reporting on or getting reviews from people. So When Two Good friends Scott & Pixie Spoke about there experience at AnimeNext this past weekend – I was OUTRAGED.

Everyone has heard about how there’s alot of creep’s taken photo’s of cosplayer’s for uses other than press related or personal use. I am of course talking about 2 Image Solutions who felt it was fine to take pictures of cosplayer’s and then put them on Body Pillows and Sell them making money off the cosplayers image. Now first off I have a problem with the Creepy Factor of this, The People who will be doing god know’s what to some of those pillow’s and the fact they are making money from these item’s and not Paying anything to the people whose image they are using.

I believe in USA that is illegal. There was nothing signed by the cosplayer and even tho the photographer has some rights having taken the photo but the fact he is making money off it is wrong.

We value Cosplayer’s and like to say how sorry we are that this has happened. Lately there has been more and more issue’s arising at convention’s with cosplayer’s being mistreated. This is a new breed of photographer and we are saddened by what is happening…below is link to the article:

End of X-Play & AoTS

All Nerds Sighed tonight and It was heard around the world….except the offices of G4

This is MY review of the finale of these 2 great Shows and In my opinions only bits and pieces were great but were lacking. Back in November G4 announced they were cancelling these 2 shows to rebrand the network into more of a man’s show and call it The Esquire Channel (Wasn’t that a women’s magazine?)

First off X-play Finale was Pretty Good, Morgan Webb (Very Beautiful and talented) and Blair Herter (I Met Him! Before he Married Jessica Chobot- Lucky Man!) Now all shows were recorded in advance and as far as I can tell they stopped recording Shows just before thanksgiving and were airing alot of repeats except for specials like top 100 video games of all time where they briefly commented on the fact they were cancelled and couldn’t comment more due to legalities. Last Episode was pretty good But I should have been unscripted and Live, They are all respected adults. Was sad to see them go!
Now there is NOTHING on TV for Nerds or any videogame enthusiast to watch.

AOTS FINALE – Very sad and I found myself a little Teary I Admit when Candace started to Cry. It would’ve been nice if her, Sara, and Matt had it also unscripted and live rather than record it month’s earlier.  But unlike X-play AOTS Rarely commented on the end or even when the finale was but aired Repeats. I was Disappointed when I tuned in after thanksgiving to catch Chris Hardwick of Nerdist (Great Guy met Him three Times!) Doing best moments of the show and NOT Candace and Sara which I felt was a Jip.

TV has officially sunk to new levels but with repeats of Knight Rider, Cops and ReRuns of Campus PD and now loosing these 2 shows I feel they are loosing Millions of viewers by these stupid moves. In my opinions They Say hey this show should get X amount of viewers and if that show gets just 1% less they want to axe the show. But I did Like how X-Play and AOTS Got the entire staff involved in filming and the final good-byes.

You Will be Missed Morgan Webb, Sara Underwood, Candace Bailey, Jessica Chobot, Matt Mira, Blair Herter!!

May you all Find a future working somewhere great together because your a GREAT TEAM!!

NYCC 2012 Review

All is Quiet, The Costumes are put away (for some), The Celebrities back to their private lives and the Fan’s Dispersed….

Im talking about NYCC Oct 13, 2012 as we Paid for our membership today after erroneously being Denied press access by the convention for no reason (that’s another story soon to be on Public News so we can’t discuss it yet..YET)
But I digress and this is about my 1 Day Experience at NYCC Jacob Javits Center and its a No holds barred Review with comments from myself as well as Overheard from a few hundred people…

We arrived at 8:30Am at Jacob Javits, Entered the green Doors and were put down in the basement warehouse for the Queue where we waited from 8:30am to 9:45am and then they allowed us up into the show floor which we reached at 10am. Now I myself understand about how new york has Union Rules but for the life Of me And 30 others we can’t understand why they can not open the show floor say 1 hour earlier, say 9am and then have their panels at 10am, this would give vendor’s and extra hour of sales, it would also make the fans happier cause now they can shop and then hit all their panels. It seemed to be alot of what people were talking about in the Queue and on the selling floor. We even spoke to 8 vendors and 2 artists from Artist alley who were all for it.

Time for First Panel of day : Lost Girl Which was scheduled 10:45-12:00 I believe but werent let in until 11am same time as the Guests but it was a fantastic Panel with Zoe, Rick and of Course the awesome Ksenia Solo. I left when they announced they were cutting the panel short and went to buy the Season 1 Dvd and Autograph ticket.
Then Off to buy a $70 ticket for Autograph and Photo of the Amazing G4 Star and Playmate Sara Underwood, Ran to Another Panel which was closed after 30 mins of starting (something New?) Back up to show Floor To wait online for Sara and were Pleased at how great she was. I felt a little bad for her publicist Jared tho as Javits Security Had started bugging him to either disperse the crowd in Aisle or else..(my words). In years past it was Javits security Job to keep aisle clear so people can walk and not stop in middle of aisle but, guess they did not have anymore than 3 security members working the con. Then Ran to Get a Wrist Band for Jessica Chobot, Ran to Cosplay Contest we ran and only 2 people Showed up…, Visited the “I Never Rest” Friend of ours Alexia Anastasio and Mina, Bill Plympton, Kevin Sean Michaels and then back to the Lost girl line to hang around for the autographs. For those who do not know it is a 2 hour wait online for autographs…I felt bad for the cast because they were late due to security again being MIA and squeezed into a tiny booth to sign for their fans…I wonder if Ksenia Bought any shoes and what video Game Zoe was thinking of playing or if Rick was contemplating a new song…But anyway after Lost girl I Ran to Jessica Chobot Line and saw how long it was so went to dinner downstairs in food court for a Hour. Came back Line didn’t budge and was second to last one. Once getting to Jessica She was such a sweetheart chatting and posing with me for a photo and autograph (only seems G4 stars do that)…Then I decided to walk around a bit and talk to people of their thoughts and take pictures…also we noticed the only press around were tv camera crews. Now we will be posting ours shortly but first we want to Show off one of our Special Correspondent’s of NYCC 2012 Jessica Fisher and here is her link to her photo’s with her permission…
