G & T Show 169 – The Food Porn Distraction

G & T Show 169 – The Food Porn Distraction

G & T ShowG & T Show 169 – The Food Porn Distraction is now available to download. Check it out here. While Terry is in New York for work, Nick and Mike are here with a new show. They are joined this week by Bazag with a special announcement, Sunseahl, and Generations Geek with Scott Pearson and Audio Vixen. We talk about the latest Star Trek News, STO’s Winter Event, Convention News, a new Ask Dayton, and more.

After introductions, we kick things off with Bazag’s special announcement. He has written a book and self-published it. He tells us about Kraver: Failed Expectations, his action-adventure novel. He thanks Jespah for helping him edit it. We congratulate him so he can go to sleep. We move on with the rest of the show. Nick is so glad that the Kid, Audio Vixen, is here. Scott has to go to work in a little bit, but Audio Vixen will hang out with us for the rest of the show.

We move into Coffee Clatch. Scott has been writing a book for kids on evasive species. He’s been having issues gearing it for a specific reading level. The site he uses assigns a number to his writing that corresponds to the reading level, but it doesn’t tell him why that score was given. He has spent a couple of hours just getting through a couple of sentences. Nick talks about Serial, a podcast he recently discovered. In a recent episode, the lawyer was one of the first to use DNA evidence in a trial and she went to an elementary school and broke it down for them until she was able to explain it simply.

Audio Vixen is up next. She tells us about a school project she’s been working on. Nick asks about the incident that happened to her and her father just a few short weeks. She tells us about the accident they had been in. We are glad that they are good. Mike asks Sun how her week had been, and her response prompted Nick to move her STO rant to later in the show.

We move onto Star Trek News, and the big item this week is Bob Orci is no longer directing Star Trek 3. We’re not sure who will be directing the next film, although there is talk of Edgar Wright picking it up. Mike is concerned, because we went from a known quantity, even though he was a first time director. Scott doesn’t know if he’d be a good choice, despite the fact that he has done genre films before. Bob was involved with the reboot since the beginning, which gave him some experience. There was some talk of Jonathan Frakes directing the film, but Nick doesn’t think his style would fit into the new universe. They all were concerned about their ability to deliver the film in time for the anniversary.

Since Audio Vixen will be graduating from high school in 2016, Nick suggests they should go to STLV as a graduation gift. Sun would like Roxanne Doxson become the director for the next film, which prompted Nick to ask if everyone had watched the latest episode of Agents of Shield, and the Flash / Arrow crossover. We talk about the shows for a few minutes. Mike watched them but was distracted by what he’s been working on this week. He recounts the story of how he came to be involved in a new project to write for a comic taking place in the JJ-universe that does not feature the crew of the Enterprise. The conversation shifts to the announcement of a Suicide Squad film and Power Rangers. Nick sends congratulations to Ruinic Studios and Gigi Edgley for funding their film, HASHTAG. Mike mentions the Supplemental Log we recorded this week with Terry J. Erdmann and Paula M. Block. Scott is familiar with them and worked for Paula when she was in charge of licensing. Our next Supplemental Log is with Rico Anderson to talk about Star Trek: Shadows of Tyranny.

They get back to Star Trek News. He starts off with Star Trek IDW’s New Visions Made Out of Mudd Photonovel. He then goes on to talk about the new Star Trek Business Card Holders. Twenty-six years ago “Elementary, Dear Data” debuted. It introduced Moriarty, Sherlock Holmes, and was one of the first times we got to see an AI created in Star Trek. They talk about the episode. Sun shares her favorite part of the episode. Continuing, Mike talks about the new prints that Bye Bye, Robot has released. For our table top gamers out there, the NECA / WizKids has released a new Expansion featuring the Regent’s Flagship from the Mirror Universe. This week, the United States also launched their Orion spacecraft, and they had Captain Kirk in his space suit aboard the ship. Due to technical issues, they lost Generations Geek temporarily. The final bit of news is some new clothing items have been added to the Star Trek store. Scott announces that he has to leave, and Audio Vixen hangs out with us.

They move into Convention News. Nick runs through the list of guests that have been announced and will be attending STLV 2015. Mike mentions Farragut Fest. It is going on right now. If you’re in the Kingsland area, drop by their and check it out. Nick asks if anyone has watching Mocking Jay Part 1. Audio Vixen has, and they talk about it. They move on to this week’s Ask Dayton. This week’s topic? Geek Movies. Mid-question, they talk about the upcoming Terminator: Genisys.

After the Ask Dayton, they talk with Audio Vixen about some of the sci-fi shows she has seen. Mike comments that she hasn’t had time to watch everything yet. Nick adds now that she is working. She admits that she works for Pieology. They talk about the job, which degenerated into a food porn due in part to the chat room’s interaction.

Moving on to Star Trek Online, Nick admits that he has not yet patched STO yet. Sunseahl rants about the Winter Event. Its new design is inspired by Frozen. But, her big issue is with the snowman Borg event. People with certain weapons are able to dominate the event and everyone else lose out on the rewards because of it. This is an issue because the items in the Winter store  are locked and require participation in the event to unlock them. Mike points out that some of the items that were available last year are now gated and require the Tides of Ice event to be run five times to unlock. Matt in the chatroom posted that some of the issues have been fixed and are currently being tested on Tribble and should be live soon.

Having complained about the Winter Event, Mike suggests we take a minute to fill people in about the actual event. Neelix makes an appearance and they discuss his role throughout the Delta Rising expansion. They go over some of the rewards, costumes, and more available throughout the Winter Event. Mike mentions the new Captain’s Log article about the current state of the game since Delta Rising’s release and the issues that have arisen due to the level cap increase. Hippie John in the chat room mentioned the new Foundry Challenge. He provided the link after the show. Sun mistakes the Foundry Challenge to the article he had written for his site, Hippie Reviews, discussing Delta Rising.

Nick moves along. We talk with Audio Vixen. The chat room continues delivering with Food Porn. Nick mentions the anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the 35th Anniversary of the Motion Picture. The puns start flying when they talk about McCoy’s beard. That got them talking about the film briefly, while more food porn appeared in the chatroom. Nick breaks out into the Klingons of Long Island and talks with Jespah about it including Fran Dreschner.

They move into announcements. Mike starts it off by mentioning that Starfinder 3 – Gorn of A Different Color – Part One came out this week. Blood of Nei’rrh is moving into production and is finalizing scripts finally. Our fundraiser for the G & T Show is still ongoing. Our test site is up. Check it out. We have a few more plugins to get along with the subscriptions we need. Contribute if you can. Audio Vixen talks about Generations Geek’s latest episode featuring an interview with Daniel Wallace, author of the Imperial Handbook. She talks about their new segment, All The Squee! They pitch their recent Supplemental Log with Terry J. Erdmann and Paula M. Block.

Nick asks Audio Vixen about John Carter and one of the best Disney Princesses ever. The food porn continues hitting the chat room. They talk about the X-Men films and Audio Vixen’s ranking of them. Generations Geek will be interviewing Ron Miller about his recent book on space art and redeems herself as a podcaster. We thank everyone that joined us this week. Mike thanks Jespah for all of her hard work she does for us.

Michael Medeiros

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.
