Trike House Party Blood Feud: War Eagle Down

arizona-usc-2014
Thanks to Hyphen gambling on Auburn’s higher ranking and picking Texas Tech, The Buzz-Saw’s lead has expanded to 3 games. With 8 weeks to go, 3 games may not seem like much, but it could be enough of a lead to bring Asti his third straight Golden Keg Championship.

The later the season gets, however, the tougher the matchups, and for Hyphen’s sake, more upsets tend to happen. He really can’t give up any more distance if he wants to finally beat The Buzz-Saw.

Standings
Boo BHyphen
(Asti): 73-17
Stone Cold Buzz-Saw Killers (Conley): 70-20

Communication Breakdown – Episode 29: Marriage Equality

MarriageFeatured

Episode 29 of the podcast is live. This one starts out on an odd note: I swallow a gnat during the opening seconds. I begin talking and see a gnat fly around my face. I breathe in and the gnat gets sucked into my mouth and down my throat.

The big topic this week is about marriage equality. The LGBTQQA crowd can now legally get married in the state of West Virginia. I give my thoughts on marriage and look at this. Then I read a list of people’s Facebook comments they posted. There’s some ignorance there.

I give a status update on the next B-Sides book in my series and when I should be publishing volume two. I announce the stories that I have queued up for volume two and let you know which ones are finished and which aren’t.

And that’s everything for this week. Episode 30 is coming up, and I’ll try to have something special planned for that interesting number. If you have any questions, comments, concerns, etc about the podcast feel free to let me know.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
“Face My Enemy”
Season 2, Episode 4, Story 26 (October 14, 2014)
Written by Drew Z. Greenberg
Directed by Kevin Tancharoen
Starring Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, B.J. Britt, Henry Simmons, Nick Blood, Adrian Pasdar, Ruth Negga, Simon Kassianides, and Reed Diamond.

What’s immediate obvious about “Face My Enemy” is that it crackles with a light, playful energy that celebrates the very concept of a spy show.

There are agents undercover, a fancy party, dancing, multiple agencies after the same object, a support team, snappy dialogue, a sly snatch and grab, cool weapons, icy bad guys, swerves, fake swerves, and face-and-voice altering technology. It’s either exactly what SHIELD should always have been or exactly what SHIELD was trying (and failing) to be after the pilot episode.

This is the first episode of the series penned by TV veteran Drew Greenberg, and…

THE FLASH: FASTEST MAN ALIVE: The Man in the Red Mask

The Flash
“Fastest Man Alive”
Season 1, Episode 2, Story 2
Written by Andrew Kreisberg & Geoff Johns, and Greg Berlanti (story)
Directed by David Nutter
Starring Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Rick Cosnett, Carlos Valdes, Tom Cavanagh, Jesse L. Martin, Chad Rook, William Sadler, and John Wesley Shipp.

There is no superhero story I like less than the “I don’t want to be a superhero” story, so it’s to THE FLASH’s credit that they manage to execute their version of Barry Allen’s desire to exit his costume about as well as possible.

What helps the show pull this off is that Barry’s decision is based on his lack of self confidence more than it is a desire to save his friends and family from any potential future harm. The safety and protection angle certainly plays a role in his decision, especially with surrogate dad Detective Joe West jamming the…

GOTHAM: ARKHAM: Honestly, Sir, I Really Did Vote For You

“Arkham”
Season 1, Episode 4, Story 4
Written by Ken Woodruff
Directed by TJ Scott
Starring Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, David Mazouz, Zabryna Guevara, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, Richard Kind, David Zayas, and Hakeem Kae-Kazim.

“Arkham” is a bunch of good news and a little bit of bad news concerning GOTHAM, Fox’s inconsistent No Batman, Batman show.

What pleases me greatly is that the show, for the first time in its brief existence, delivers an entire episode of a sustained, consistent vision. Previous to this, GOTHAM has bounced between dumbly grim and gritty and clumsily campy, but “Arkham” chooses the dark side of the street and stays there from start to finish. To say it’s the best episode of the series runs the risk of damning it with faint praise, but this episode gives hope to the idea that the producers have learned…
