24 Hours of G & T: Hour 21

24 hours of The G & T Show

The G & T Show – it’s all about story, characters, and Star Trek

24 Hours of G & T: Hour 21 is now available to download. Check it out here. James Kerwin and Kipleigh Brown are still our guests for this hour of the fundraiser. Deyvid with TrekRadio and Sunseahl with Club 602 continue their vigil with us. The first signs of struggling to stay awake are starting to show.

We return from break with a discussion of one of the Warp 11 songs played during the break. Nick hasn’t been this tired since he was deployed in Iraq. James was surprised by Nick’s comment. Steve claims that he’s not tired yet. They tease him. James asks if we have seen Kipleigh’s behind the scenes video of her recording Kimari at Cryptic. They talk about her visit at Cryptic and the giant dragon.

We do a tote board check. We have raised $1088.22 so far. Sandy Watson has won the CD box set of the Enterprise Soundtrack. Congratulations to her. As they figure out what the prize for this hour will be, James suggested signed used underwear from Kipleigh. Nick wants to know how much, but Kipleigh says she goes Commanche or maybe it’s commando. Deyvid is Apache and asks if that will work. Ultimately, we decide to give out the Star Trek Mug and the TOS Transporter magnetic salt and pepper shakers courtesy of CBS Licensed Products.

Nick makes a comment about ‘shipping that Kipleigh didn’t understand. James explains to her what ‘shipping is in fan fiction. They also discuss slash and compare it to ‘shipping. Mike mentions that we had just received a voice mail from Patty and Kim. Mike passes it over to Steve to play. Noise from Skype obscures the call during our quiet moments as the audio is transferred to Steve and Terry shows the chatroom photos of the mug and the salt and pepper shakers.

We finally get the audio ready and Terry tells us that Patty and Kim are some of her and Allen’s friends from Minnesota that work for Activision. James worked for Activision when he first got to L.A. We play the new Listener Mail bumper followed by their voice mail. They were having trouble accessing the stream and hope that the show is going well. Nick makes a bad stream joke. He then follows it up with a joke about getting mugged on this hour of the G & T Show. He then talks about Namaste, a comic he worked on while in Iraq about the civilian contractor guards they had from Nepal. James thought it was both funny and profound at the same time. Deyvid talks about the meaning of Namaste. James provides the literal meaning of Namaste.

The tired is kicking in and everyone is giggly. Johnny Snowball rubs it in that he had 10 hours of sleep. We give him the highlights of what he had missed. He missed so much. James wanted to know what the Klingon Ferengi conversation was about and of course, we blame Kipleigh since we had been talking about Sunrise at the time. We fill James in on the generalities of the discussion. Johnny Snowball refers to James as Kipleigh’s sidekick, which shocks all of us in the studio. Nick compares him to a variety of superhero sidekicks. Kipleigh calls James her side bitch. Nick describes James’ costume as green underoos. They talk about Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. It is being rebooted.

They talk about retro futuristic cars from the past as well as television shows from the 60s. A lot of them were before Mike’s time. They talk about creepy characters from some of those shows. James describes them as people from a more innocent time, trying to help children. Terry thought Mr. Rogers was her father, because of his appearance and his habits were very similar to what Mr. Rogers did on the show. Captain Kangaroo has the same haircut as Kipleigh’s husband, but Emo rocks it better. They talk about Mr. Greenjeans.

James wonders what happened in the 70s, since the 60s was the height of culture, music, fashion, and design and the 70s were monochrome black and white. Nick blames it on the fact that they went from weed to coke. Star Trek skipped the 70s. Mike mentions that Phase II was planned for the 70s, and TMP was based on it, which explains why TMP had the 70s aesthetic to it. The 80s had a better aesthetic to it than the 70s.

AliMac joins the chatroom. We reiterate this hour’s prize and the fundraiser’s big prize. James and Kipleigh are starting to fade. We thank them for joining us at this late / early hour. We congratulate them on their latest work.

Deyvid talks about Bristle Blocks, a toy he loved from growing up in the 70s. He remembers trying to build the Enterprise with the pieces and getting mad because he didn’t have the right pieces. We share some of our earliest childhood memories. We try to figure out what we are going to do with the rest of the hour. Patty makes it into the chatroom despite the issues she experienced earlier in the evening. Steve tries to get us on track, since he’s the only one with a semi-functional brain. They decide to do a Life Pod One. They try to spend a few minutes trying to figure out which Life Pod One to do.

Steve wants to do a top of the hour restart. We are starting to fade, but we take our break.

Mike Medeiros is a great storyteller in his own mind. He’s been known to put words to page and sometimes, he even turns them into audio stories for himself, his friends and the occasional stranger that stumbles upon his stuff by accident. He has written, writes, and will write for Gates of Sto’vo’kor, Blood of the Neirrh, Star Trek: Starfinder, The Klingons of Long Island, Reality’s Edge, and Zygerus. Some of his stories and other writings have materialized on websites and forums for the G & T Show, Priority One, ScienceFiction.com, Star Trek Online, and even Star Trek.com. He’s written a few playable missions for Star Trek Online and has even had a couple of them spotlighted. He keeps saying he’s working on a novel, but is he really? A comic book is more likely. If only he could make money flinging ink at the screen, he’d be a happy camper.

But, wait. There’s more.

He is the co-owner of Busy Little Beaver Productions and is the producer and co-host for G & T Show and Gates of Sto’vo’kor. He’s directed voice actors, and produced and edited audio podcasts and dramas because he doesn’t have the face for video. He plays well with others and is always on the look out for the next project, the next thing, the next next. If he wasn’t working on something with a half dozen other projects waiting in the wings, somebody please check to make sure he’s still breathing.

During the day, he’s a mild-mannered computer repair man who dabbles in web design in his small, rural, Central California community. He lives with his lovingly dysfunctional family and loyal canine companion and spends most of his time in the closet concocting some hair-brained scheme or another. He’s got an unhealthy obsession with Lego video games, Klingons, and Star Trek Online that borders on the neurotic.

Despite all this, he still finds the time to write the words. Find out what he's doing here.
