152 - Can I Have My Money Back? - Week of 3/13/19

The Fellowship of the Geeks Podcast

Release Date: 03/10/2019

The Fellowship is pleased to present our Casting Call for a new Flash Gordon movie. We talked about the long-running comic strip a few weeks back, and that got us in the mood to try to erase the 1980 movie by making a better one today. We got new ideas, we got new tech (and some throwbacks), we got movie stars, and a whole lot of other stuff. Plus our usual goofy behavior, as well as our picks of the week.
 
Announcements:
Come hang out with us! We have monthly meetups on 2nd Saturdays in Garland, TX; details on Facebook & Twitter & the Events tab on our website
Les and Thomas are making a special appearance on the Rantcor Pit show (hosted by Cole Houston and our old pal Eddie Medina), which you can check out on DallasOnAir.com - look for them there on Sunday 3/17 at 10:30am CT! You should also check out Eddie and Colleen Medina on their show Figments at 9:30, same place 🙂 
 
What we're up to this week:
Final issue of Strangers in Paradise XXV, which spins straight into Five Years, coming in May
Still sorting and rearranging the collection, and still looking for a new LCS
Wandering around the house, getting into Babyteeth
Not much reading, except for Moon Cop

We honestly didn't plan how different our takes on our made-up Flash Gordon movie ended up. Somehow each of the four of us came at it from a unique angle, and we didn't do it on purpose 🙂
Also, Skype was just a little bit twitchy on Tuesday night, so apologies for the occasional odd hiccup.
