For the record, I say towards the end of the episode that I think people should be able to do whatever they want. I meant to add the caveat “as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.” Unfortunately, too many people these days only believe in the first half of the sentiment and not the second.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been watching a lot of Winter Olympics lately! That got my pop culture gears going, so I started putting together an episode about winter sports flicks. In the first part, I get into moments in other films and then discuss hockey and figure skating movies! Part 2 will cover a wide variety of ski and snowboarding movies!
Warning: some of these clips are violent!
On this week’s episode, I chat with my friend, professor and comic book correspondent Ben Morse about the late 90s Teen Titans book written and drawn for the most part by Dan Jurgens with George Perez on inks for part of the run! Along the way we talk about the end of Marv Wolfman’s run on New Titans, other teen books from this era and the most important elements to creating a successful Teen Titans book! If you want even more context for this one, go back and listen to episodes 18 and 19.
Throughout the episode, we both mention a variety of articles and interviews about this Teen Titans run. Most of these come from TitansTower.com, which is also mentioned in the show. When I went to double check the links, though, the site was undergoing maintenance. I hope they work now!
- Dan Jurgens talks to Wizard before the book comes out
- Dan Jurgens and George Perez excerpts from Titans Companion 2
- I intended to find a link to a Marv Wolfman interview about the end of his run, but the site’s down!
Welcome to the landmark 50th episode of The High Five Podcast! With this one, I decided to celebrate one of the all-time greatest action-comedy filmmakers to ever do it: Jackie Chan! What started as a celebration of Jackie Chanuary with some friends turned into me watching a whole of the master’s movies with no intent on slowing down anytime soon! I tried choosing one of his films from each decade starting with the 70s and making my way all the way up to the 20s, but of course I added in a few extras along the way.
You knew there had to be some clips, right?!
Also, for good measure, here’s the Typhoon hovercraft toy commercial I mentioned while talking about Rumble In The Bronx.
