Episode 8 fixed

Okay, so what happened is... I edited the first part of the show, and then I edited the last part of the show... and I forgot to edit the middle part. Like Sigler's never done that.

Anyway, for those of you who don't want to hear me break character and riff on sending in the shuttlecraft, here's the edited, more professional sounding GSG 8.

GSG Promo 4

Because I'm kind of proud of this one, I thought I'd share. You'll see that the promo is very small, and suitable for, say, e-mailing to friends, enemies, family members, etc. (hint, hint). Seriously, word of mouth is a powerful thing, and your friends don't need an iPod to listen to pretty much any podcast they want to. Of course, I'd rather they listen to this one, but I'm biased. At any rate, here's today's quick tip.

GSG Special Report 2 - Bad Movies

After a particularly jarring example of Bad Movie I sat through earlier today, I was inspired to create the following special report. While typically I am a very, very forgiving lover of genre, today I found myself wanting to get up and get out of a particular film. Bad. The only reason I stayed is because I was waiting for a delivery to be made to the local EB Games (Darn Ship Date vs. Release Date confusion). So I found myself watching a horrible movie from beginning to stultifying end.


If only I'd had the foresight to prepare a Kung Fu Bingo Sheet!

Here, Friends! Arm yourselves with knowledge!

Audio trouble

So, if any of you listen to Lights Out Radio (, then you're aware that I'm battling some wierd audio problems. That should be dealt with this week, but I don't want to do a full episode while I'm hammering it out. So, I'm going to do another short special report this week, and have a full episode out next week.

Meanwhile, I'm adding a PuPu Player here, and want to test how it's working.

If anyone has any feedback, let me know.

Welcome to Geek Survival Guide

Here I'll be doing a podcast, hopefully every other week, where I explore one geeky threat to our survival. What would you do if Martians really DID attack? How would you cope with giant radioactive Japanese Monsters? What can you do if you really do live in a nice neighborhood - except for all the #$* #@$% vampires? This is the podcast for you - so you don't wind up as an unfortunate red-shirted crewman, or a camp counselor at Crystal Lake. Remember... Cliché kills.

Our first cast should be up shortly - so keep a look out.
