(Captain) Ron Fortier joins Tom in this soon to be classic episode! Ron speaks about his comic book beginnings, Brother Bones and Captain Hazzard, the New Pulp movement, the popularity of Sherlock Holmes, and a whole lotta inside info on Airship 27! Better press play now rather than later fearless listener!
Bobby Nash sits down with Tom for a rousing discussion of…well, all things Bobby Nash. Bobby explains how he got into writing and the process he went through to get Evil Ways published. He blames Sean Taylor for the creation of Rick Ruby and The Ruby Files and Bobby and Tom talk at length about the Domino Lady and Honey West! 50 minutes of pure writer-y goodness, don’t delay, press play!
In this new feature, the writer attempts to get to the point in 500 words or less. Today, I take on the CW’s new show Capture. (more…)
The Boys Outta Brooklyn mark the passing of one of the greatest genre writers ever to work a typewriter by posthumously inducting Richard Matheson into The Hall of Great, Great Men. Join Tom and Derrick as they discuss key films both inspired by and written by Matheson, talk about the way he helped bring horror fiction into the living room and gives out some writing advice. You don’t want to be chased around by some freaking Zuni Fetish Doll, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow)!
Back from island. Despite Matthew’s opinion that this is a stupid feature, the questions remain. (more…)
Alright, it isn’t nice. I know. The fact is that anyone that knows me will say I’m opinionated on many subjects. The fact is, I do tend to make jokes and pick on people, such as those that call themselves vegans. To those that are living under a rock, vegans are people that eat absolutely no meat, no eggs, no milk, no butter or cheese. These individuals do it for a variety of reasons. They do it for health and spiritual reasons. They also do it because they are disgusted with how modern animals are treated in pens and slaughterhouses. (more…)
In honor of a great, great man:
February 20, 1926 – June 23, 2013
“If men only felt about death as they do about sleep, all terrors would cease. . . Men sleep contentedly, assured that they will wake the following morning. They should feel the same about their lives.”
The Guys Outta Brooklyn spend some time waiting for the end of the world by examining the classic Richard Matheson novella I Am Legend and its three adaptations. Each of these trio of films are very different in tone and approach, and Tom and Derrick will compare and contrast them all. From the black-as-pitch black and white melodrama of The Last Man on Earth to Charlton Heston kicking ass in The Omega Man to Will Smith and his dog trying to survive in I Am Legend, we cover them all! Plus some talk about mixing animation and live action, and Tom is vindicated when Derrick finally watches the Kristen Bell tragedy Pulse. Bare those teeth like you mean it–get to clicking!
In the debut episode, Thomas sits down with Richard Lee Byers to talk about his newest book The Impostor #2: The Blood Machine! Go inside the creative process of Byers as he tells the story of Matt Brown, a normal man trapped in a world of superpowered heroes and villains, of mutants, sentient robots, and monsters! Also: Richard describes how he plans out his stories, goes into a bit of his Forgotten Realms contributions and gives out just a tiny bit of info into the future of The Impostor series. And while you are just an ordinary man (or lady) like Matt, don’t let that stop you from pressing play!
What began as an innocent few lines to Heather Carrico, who got me to start watching The Walking Dead turned into a massive email fest about what will happen in tonight’s season finale. Email gold is what follows. (more…)
