OH Canad- wait….?

Yeah This guy was out and about for bit traveling the world, seeing the sights, drinking beer and eating heart warming poutine. I was in the great white north…..again(fucking alaska) but this time it was Acton, Ontario Canada to rub elbows and cupcakes with FlashPulp‘s own Skinner Co Execs and Jr. Execs. I had a blast we recorded some podcasts and those are both live a running free as well as just enjoyed one another’s company. I can’t wait to go back it was a blast. Yes there are pictures but you gets none… lol ok so you get a few they will come in another post as I don’t have the thumb stick with them on me as I am supposed to be on the road back home but a pit stop at the farm for a couple days is always a good thing. Jrd, Opop, JMay, were wonderful hosts who spent way to fucking much money on me and thus next years balticon they will get ten fold in meat i swear it.

There isn’t much difference between the two countries how ever other than the fact Canadians 1) Can’t not drive 2) are super nice about everything. Other than those two fact there basically the same. All in all in the a fun trip and its been way to fucking long since i been up north and i will definitely try to make this a yearly thing if i can because we went to a Halloween themed amusement park(Jrd stamped it when he decided we need fast lane passes for this thing.) The rollercoasters were fucking insane leviathan my hat is off to you good mechanical beast. JMay you are going in every haunted house we can find by the way next time. We also will try to make it a two day affair next time so we ca get in some of the awesome Halloween shows and events planned.

Well if you want to hear more please stop by FlashPulp for there Flash Cast Minisode featuring Me and Protector of Regina, Throat Punch Janelle. Also you can stop by Talk Nerdy 2 Me or TN2M Facebook Page and hear us go on about horror movies and how Canada invaded my podcast lol. so until next time from the Den Big Bear is out and on the road…again?(yeesh I am out of practice)

10 Podcasts You Should Hear…TWICE!!

I am an avid podcast listener, and as a young fledgling podcaster myself I eager take in all the good and bad that I hear. So this list will be the most helpful and best podcasts in the bunch. I will not rank them nor will I say there aren’t better out there but I decided to choose 10 and I am sticking to it. So if I listen to you, and your not here I am sorry just the constraints I put upon myself nothing against you and don’t worry there maybe a second list(of course there will be lol I just can’t help myself). So here it is 10 podcasts you should hear, TWICE!!

The first podcast I ever downloaded and listened to and still do to this day religiously:

I Should Be Writing by Mur Lafferty

ISBW_logo

This is a podcast for wanna be fiction writers by a up and coming if not already there fiction writer. Mur Lafferty has opened herself up to her fans and friends alike letting us in on her writing ups, down, rises and falls. She also has openly and candidly talked about her own issues ranging from social anxieties to fighting depression and all the while she is dishing out advice and raising a young one and loving a husband. She is one of the strongest and smartest people I have ever had the pleasure to meet though sadly I totally fanboy’d all over the moment and will have to make up for that hopefully with this years Balticon(fingers crossed)

The Round Table Podcast

RTPlogo

 

This author interview and literary workshop podcast, hosted by the literary alchemists themselves Dave Robison and Brion Humphrey is marvelous to hear. These guys interview a fellow author one episode then the next they being them back and maybe even a fourth host of mystery and then workshop an authors story right on air. I have learned so much about so many people and about spit balling ideas and building a story this is a great podcast to listen to and learn from.

The Shared Desk

TSD-what

The newest podcast outing from godfather of podcasting himself Tee Morris and his lovely wife Pip Ballentine Morris. What can I say about this podcast on writing, social media, marketing, and even bits of there personal life along with their solo and tandem careers. Other than its awesome and when you hear it great things will be shared with you, along with copious drop in awesome from the TeeMonster himself 😛

The Shrinking Man Project

ShrinkingMan-AllUpper-144x144

This is a powerful podcast were one man talks very candidly and openly about his struggles and successes with loosing weight and being healthier. That man is Doc Coleman whom I have met and wish I could dress half as dapperly as this man. As someone who has recently had to start being healthier and watching my weight and what I eat and so forth the listen to this podcast and hear about what he goes through and the advice he has and motivations he yields is utterly amazing and a fantastic listen for anyone to learn from.

We Hate Hate Movies

We Hate Movies

A movie review podcast hosted by Andrew Jupin, Chris Cabin, Steve Sajdak, and Eric Szyszka is down right hilarious. They watch movies 10 years old or older and in a comedic way talk about them. Simple right? Right simple and its effective comedy gold.

Yeah It’s That Bad

Yeahitsthatbad

A shrouded in as much mystery as it is in a massive fart cloud of running gags, in jokes, and bouts of uncontrollable laughter. These three unknown hosts(and they like it that way) are Kevin, Joel, and Martin(and yes Kevin was listed first on purpose) review movies suggested by fans or on a whim they decided to watch and its a wonderful journey to embark with these three… gentleman(?)

Probably one of these most untimely podcast on the internet but despite it all these three characters Clarissa, Jarold, and Daryl has one of these most knowledgable and informative anime podcast you every wanna listen to and listen you will.

Join Scott Johnson and his FilmSack pals, Brian Ibbot, Brian Dunaway, and Randy Jordan with powerful and spectacularly voiced Scott Flecher as narrator? as they watch films from Netflix streaming and review them just like you and your pals would then dish out some film sack approved awards to finish it up. this podcast is a fun time for all

Blame It On Outer Space

bioos_logo_wide_lgJUPINEDIT

A podcast debunking conspiracy theories in a comedic way. This podcast is the brain bomb of Eric Szyszka, sadly it is only once a month but it is a funny and great way to spend some time out of your day once a month. His fellow pals form We Hate Movies has shown up a couple time but each episode he has some new and funny folk coming in or returning powered by the hot jams of DJ Krymulak this is a podcast like no other.

Time Well Spent

You know some times you try so hard, pouring  your sweat and bleed into something that you dont realize just how burnt out or mentally exhausted you are. Until that is you look at what you have been doing other than working on your project. I have recently done this I have spent so much time between my novel, the podcast, and other things namely my blood sugar. That I didn’t realized I have stopped reading almost completely I have stalked about the net to other blogs, I haven’t touch my manga collection, or any of the awesome books I have awaiting my eyeballs and imagination.

You’ve been working you say, things fall to the way side you say, and that is all true but just like all things your imagination needs fuel, your discipline needs fuel. This is something most of use forget when swept up in a story or in trying to make something how we want it. So I have decided to hammer out some points unto myself 1) read more, 2) excercise more(I was doing this twice aweek or more before and have fallen off) 3) work with in my means. This last one is probably most important because it will make room for the others. Now because I work nights 10pm – 7am I will have to push my will and drive to stay awake a few more hours after work so things can get done. I will have to keep this up for 30 days because science, that SCIENCE!!!! says to form a habit you have to do something for at least 30 days. Once I have spit balled the scheduling around a bit I will post my schedule and but podcasting and blogging will fall on thursdays and fridays I knwo this for curtain so dont worry my faithful few the bear will be bck to his weekly bits. To finish this post up I will let you know I have upgraded abit and gotten a Tumblr and a Pinterest to go along with Facebook, Twitter, Google+. The tumblr is a bit saucy I wil lstil ltalk about my nerdy bits and loves but I will also talk about adult matter and things themed with in that realm. So you could say I am letting my hear down a bit on the Tumblr, not the Pinterest is probably more akin to this and the podcast though I only have one board right now and its just for diabetic recipes the next board will be some sort of nerdy one but I haven’t decided about what yet. Well If you have any idea or either email me jaygbanks@gmail.com or message me on Twitter @JG_Banks, @Nerdy2mepodcast. The pinterest is http://pinterest.com/jgbanks/, ans lastly the Tumblr http://jgbanks.tumblr.com
