SHOW OF A THOUSAND INTERVIEWS! (...well, three)

PODCAST FROM 09/28/06!!!!

Interview 1: writer for seasons 1 & 2 of "Lost" (SPOILERS ABOUND), "Charmed", and a hilarious comic called "Middleman"
JAVIER GRILLO-MARXUACH!!!
(so fun. so funny. gosh golly geee)


Interview 2: Brian Coughlin, of the Fireworks Ensemble!
They'll be presenting a concert Saturday at the Lied Center.

(Oh man, it would be AMAZING if they did music from ^"What's Opera, Doc?". I love the way cartoons like 'Looney Tunes' introduce aspects like opera, classic music and theater to children through a clever format and oh man, I owe so much of my knowledge to Warner Bros. Animation. If you feel the same, look into going to 'Cartoon'!)


Interview 3: Craig Klotz, organizer for the Free State FreeCon!



Woooo! I'm still soaring from the show. Like I said, spoilers, but if you're a fan of 'Lost', get ready for a punch in the gut of information (at least for those of you who haven't been following 'the Lost experience') and fun fun fun! wheee

See you guys at the Con on Saturday! Yaay!
Love,
Annie!

A "Panel" Full of Happy





PODCAST FROM 09/14/06 SHOW

Interview with: Raina Telgemeier! Yaaay!
Group Review: Fables (the first trade) Yaay!
(only two a's for that one because it isn't as wonderful as an interview with Raina)
Other: Picks of the Week by Joe, and Shutterbug Follies review by Annie! Yaay!
(you know the drill)

This was a very, very, very fun show. I'll let you listen for yourselves.
And pay no attention for the minute of Sports Talk preceding our show.
(Except for when they mention the gargantuan size of our Facebook group.)
Remember, sports fans are just like us, only they care about other stuff.
...Stuff that's boring.
...To me.
Really nice guys, though!

Enjoy!
On a seasonal side note, a true sign of fall is when the ice cream parlors start to put out their autumnal flavors. For example, the fine establishment at which I work will soon be unveiling Caramel Apple and Pumpkin Cheesecake, as well as well-loved flavors Apple Pie and Autumn Harvest (nuts, cake, cinnamon, glory!).

I like my job too much,
Annie!

P.S. Annie messes up a lot re: geeking out over 'Heroes':
1) It isn't Jared Padalecki that's going to be in 'Heroes,' it's Milo Ventimiglia.
I feel awful for having mixed up two 'Gilmore' boys.
But their names are so long and ethnic and difficult!
2) It isn't Brittany Snow, it's Hayden Panettiere.
The former was on 'American Dreams,' the latter was in 'Bring it On: All or Nothing.'
AND she did the voice of Dot in 'A Bug's Life.'
Anyway, I switched them up because they're both so blonde
and teenager-y and cheerleaderesque and! and and and
