Episode 74 – Scotch Tape and Hope

Episode 74 – Scotch Tape and Hope

It’s a bit of a ramshackle affair this week as the boys (mostly Dan) were plagued by technical issues, but they wouldn’t let that stop them from bringing you a new episode!

Week in Geek: Andrew watches Ronin again and gets some spicy behind-the-scenes details while Dan plays dress-up in Batman: Arkham Knight.

Cards Against Black Friday: Dan and Andrew detail the questionable history the cynically dark Cards Against Humanity has with the equally cynical (but different) Black Friday shopping event.

Howard No More: With the announcement at the most recent World Fantasy Convention that they would no longer be distributing a bust of H.P. Lovecraft as an award due to the author’s public and well-known racist and elitist views, different portions of fandom exploded with either outrage or victory (both sides have legitimate angles). Andrew and Dan discuss why this may be a good thing or a bad thing (mostly good).

Episode 20 – Hydra Healthcare

Episode 20 – Hydra Healthcare

Hitting another arbitrary benchmark, Episode 20 is celebrated with another purported naked episode (no clothes were actually removed in the recording of this episode). To celebrate, they continue into October with another Halloween-themed episode throughout.

Week in Geek: Andrew finally gets around to watching latter-day X-Men movies (when they got good again). Dan bought a new Lovecraft book.

Alone in the Dork: Dan and Andrew discuss the scariest video games they’ve ever played.

Discussion: With a Kickstarter going touting to be the first “officially licensed” video game based on an H. P. Lovecraft story, Andrew and Dan wonder how that’s even possible considering H. P. Lovecraft’s works are well-known to be in the public domain.

Hail Hydra: In a bit of a detour, Dan and Andrew try to figure out what’s so bad about Marvel’s HYDRA organization.

Episode 16 – Of Underwear Models & Wayward Sons

Episode 16 – Of Underwear Models & Wayward Sons

A new episode of For All Intents and Purposes is here in true episodic fashion! Though PAX may be done and no huge events seem to be around the corner, it’s back to business as usual.

The Week in Geek: Andrew plays the Battlestar Galactica board game and actually keeps his friends this time, while Dan watches Academy Award-nominated animated short films––specifically, “Adam and Dog” by Minkyu Lee. Also, Dan will be an exhibitor at this year’s Crocker-Con in Sacramento at the Crocker Art Museum. It happens on Thursday, 11 September, from 5-9pm. Be there!

Boasts of Bethel: Close-reading the second episode of Doctor Who‘s 8th series, “Into the Dalek,” Dan investigates the most prominent question on Whovians’ minds: Is Clara actually a good English teacher?

Discussion: Since Dan started watching Supernatural this week, he remembers the good old days of episodic nerdy drama and he and Andrew ponder why so much television has become serialized and whether it has helped or hurt the medium.

Love the Craft: Andrew and Dan look at another story by H. P. Lovecraft. This time, it’s one Andrew hasn’t read before, an exciting, frightening, and…funny (?) short called, “The Hound.”

Question: Hot off the presses of Apple’s press conference and their announcement of the Apple Watch, Dan and Andrew wonder:

What are your thoughts on the rise of “smart”, on-your-body peripherals for your phones?

Love the Craft: The Lovecraft segment returns as Dan and Andrew dissect the invisible menace of “The Dunwich Horror.”

Discussion:  With the avalanche of response to last week’s question, Andre wand Dan decide to more fully investigate the topic of musical scores as they relate to film, video games, and television.

Andrew Objects: With movie scores in mind, Andrew objects to the Eric Serra-composed score for Pierce Brosnan’s first outing as James Bond, Goldeneye.

Geek Thoughts:  This week, they keep up the musical themes by asking:

What is your favorite television theme and why?
