Those Other Star Wars Comics



Comics based off of movies and television shows aren’t a new thing. As far back as the Golden Age you can find adaptations. A few of those adaptations even launched their own ongoing series. Sometimes those stories mattered and were included in what is called “cannon”. Other times those stories were just for fun, not having any impact on the larger narrative.

One of the great things about comic books is that there are no restrictions when it comes to continuing a story from another medium. Take the Star Wars Universe BEFORE Disney bought the rights. Not only were there dozens of novels that continued the adventures of Han, Luke and Leia, but comic books as well. Thanks mostly to Dark Horse Comics.

Strap in for a trip in to lightspeed as our trio of geeky hosts travel to the world of the Star Wars Expanded Universe to look at Those Other Star Wars Comics during this episode of My Big Fat Pull List!

Nicholas J. Hearne - The Host of The My Big Fat Pull List PodcastNicholas J. Hearne:

Blessed with an overactive imagination, Nick spent his early years absorbing as much pop culture as possible. From comic books to television, films, sci-fi, fantasy, horror – if it was great storytelling, he assimilated it! His fascination with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Marvel Comics X-Men drove him to become an avid reader of all literature and a devoted comic collector at the age of eleven! Even though Nick enjoyed most comic book related material, his deep passion for all things “mutant” led to his alter ego being formed, the Uncanny Mister X! In recent years, Nick has co-founded his own comic book company, Archlight Comics, a film company, Archlight Studios, and has become a skilled podcaster and podcast editor.

Jacob Petri:

Just a common man, working hard with his hands, Jacob Petri has always had an eclectic taste in the world of pop culture. As a child, Jacob read comics, watched Saturday morning cartoons, enjoyed televised sports entertainment, played video games and collected trading cards and action figures. As an adult, he took his love of over the top theatrics and parlayed that into a mediocre Pro-Wrestling career, as he believed Pro-Wrestling was the closest he could get to live action comic books.
As Pistol Danger, he’s used his knowledge and skill both in the ring and on the internet, navigating video games during Let’s Plays and dishing out advice about the wrestling business. Needing to conquer new forms of entertainment, Pistol Danger has turned to podcasting, hoping to educate people on the finer points of geek culture, from comic books to films and everything in between.

Sean Murphy - The Host of The My Big Fat Pull List PodcastSean Murphy

Born with the ambition to one day be a professional football player and then join the military, Sean Murphy was always drawn towards hero based cartoons such as G.I. Joe and the X-Men. Sadly, those dreams were crushed after a terrible accident while playing street football. Sean learned that he was born with missing bones in his feet and his doctors informed him that he wouldn’t be able to play pro football let alone join the military. Missing out on being the hero he wanted to be, Sean turned towards the heroes he knew and loved… comic book superheroes!
As his teenage years turned to adulthood, Sean found a deep love for pop culture. Taking part in role-playing games, cosplaying as his favorite characters at conventions, Sean even worked at a comic book shop for over a decade. His need to absorb geek culture and fun facts earned him the nickname Smurphy. A fun-loving and sometimes socially clueless podcaster, Smurphy is eager to pass on all he knows and then some.

Stress: Passing The POLICE Oral Board

When you consider that the people that are testing you are in charge of people that will be instituting the fundamentals of law enforcement to YOU, as you attempt to enter a truly special circle of responsibility – the stress compiles fast. Look, you have to be able to deliver the answers, and we surely can’t remove the stress that awaits you, but we can provide you a great outline of what to expect to help manage the stress of “Passing The Police Oral Board” –  during this episode of The Free Field Training Podcast.

Revamping Bat-Villains



When it comes to super villains in comic books, the norm for the longest time was make them colorful looking so they pop of the page and don’t give them too complicated of a backstory. Simple and eye catching. Once television and animation became a factor, comic book fans were seeing their favorite characters acted or drawn out on their TV sets for the first time and they were just as colorful and simplistic as they were on the comic page.

All that started to change in the early 1980’s. The writing in comic books became more sophisticated, more adult. Sure, the villains were still colorful, but their methods and reasoning became more grim. And with film adaptations going from campy to gritty, the villains became the whole reason to go to the movie theater. The prime example of this is Heath Ledger’s performance as The Joker in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.

Listen in on the Original Geeks as they come up with backstories and performers to bring to life more realistic versions of some of Batman’s “greatest” foes. It’s time to Revamp A Bat-Villain on My Big Fat Pull List!

Walking the Talk…



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!Millennials are paying close attention to the stories behind the brands, companies, manufacturers and builders they patronize. Before purchasing, consumers today are more apt to research a company’s values and how those values affect the way they conduct business. Millennials tend to choose products, brands and businesses that are involved in the betterment of struggling communities, global social justice issues and the environmental impact of production.

Marla recalls an article titled, “Millennial Women have Strong Purchasing Power. What Influences It?” that talks about the collective purchasing power of millennial women that is reaching a staggering 170 billion in size. The article states the brand story behind a product is extremely important as 41% of those surveyed claimed to know who founded the company and 47% claimed to know the story of origin behind their favorite brand. More importantly, 45% say a primary influencer for them is the brand’s sustainability practices. Today’s young purchasers know how to do their research and are not afraid to leave honest reviews. They also have the power of the internet behind them which can cause a bad review to go viral in a blink of an eye.

In today’s market, it’s vital to let the public know how a business benefits the community, how they help and protect the planet and what they are doing to relieve suffering in the world. Tony states that “marketing is not selling, it’s educating, it’s laying the foundation for choice and change,” that’s why letting the public know about a company’s green practices and commitment to sustainability must be highly publicized. One way companies are getting the word out is through a website called GreenBiz that publishes information on corporate sustainability. Large companies readily participate in these types of websites as they understand they must market to the demand for green sustainable homes and products.

Everyone can do something. Simple things you can do in your office is adding plastic, aluminum and paper recycling containers, purchasing energy star office equipment and using LED light bulbs. If you’re in the building trades you might think of providing for on-sight recycling of construction waste, as well as re-using and repurposing construction waste. In the home, a good place to start is by purchasing toilette paper made from recycled paper, installing control and automation technology that turn lights, heating and cooling systems on and off at certain times of the day. The important thing is to walk your own talk through everyday green choices and to follow the millennials lead by making purchases from green sustainable companies who care about humanity and the planet.

Now that’s walking the talk!

Using resources – materials and products – wisely is a key practice of green building and includes practices ranging from optimizing use of resources (such as wood for framing) to choosing durable materials that will stand the test of time and offer lower maintenance.

The Shining (The Book) VERSUS The Shining (The 1980 Movie)



What could be more disturbing than reading through Stephen King’s “The Shining?” Well, how about a viewing of Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining?” Well – we’ve got that beat. How about an Axe Murderer, and a Sorcerer, COMPARING “The Shining” (The Book) & “The Shining” (The Movie)? That’s what we’ve got and it’s not just a reminiscence in tremendous horror, it’s a wonderfully educational experience that delivers perspective on two great classics!

You Can’t Manage It Unless You Measure It – A Visit with Wistar Wood from WegoWise



Click Here to Play This Episode of The Green Gab Podcast Now!Wistar Wood, Chief Sales Officer for WegoWise, explains the meaning behind the name WegoWise, a web-based, company that tracks a property’s utility data, mainly water, electric, gas, and oil. Using an intuitive software platform, the company provides insight into a building’s energy and water efficiency, enabling building owners and property managers to achieve immediate and sustained savings. While the software is used for most any type of property, they mostly target multi-family buildings. The technology is very simple. For example, in a multi-family building, electric meters almost always track usage for individual units. Typically, the software service and/or meter is installed in the landlord or property manager’s unit as they are the ones responsible for paying the bill for their on-site unit as well as the common area’s heating and electricity.

WegoWise chooses multi-family residences for many reasons. Mainly when it comes to collecting big data and comparing the performance of one property against another similar property such as an individual apartment/condo inside a multi-family structure to another apartment/condo in the same building it makes the comparisons extremely relevant. It’s like comparing apples to apples versus apples to cucumbers. Collecting and comparing data establishes benchmarks and norms which help tenants realize they are using much more energy and/or water than their peers.
In most cases, the building owner purchases the service and/or the meters and then train the on-site property managers. Generally, it’s the managers who become the experts at reading the data and the owners and tenants who get the benefits of saving money.

According to Wistar, “the bottom line is that you can’t manage it unless you measure it” and that’s what WegoWise does, by tracking big data on the usage of a building’s utilities and water. It’s all about awareness, so whether its multi-family residences, private homes, civic buildings or business offices, measuring and managing water, electricity, gas and oil usage saves money, sustains the environment and is just plain wise.

Watchmen (The Graphic Novel) VERSUS Watchmen (The 2009 Movie)



Graphic novels and graphic novel movies have been a staple of American culture since the golden age of comics. They have steadily become the most interesting and hotly debated of cinematic exploits. To talk about a time when movies made us feel like we knew superheroes is to talk about a time when cinema ruled the world. But in terms of graphic novels, none are more highly revered than that of Alan Moore. Of all Moore’s work, his foray into the nuclear-driven world of “Watchmen” has so many topics for discussion, let alone comparison. Once called “unfilmable” by the author himself, this novel deals with so many topics that it is rough to even summarize. But though “unfilmable,” “300” director Zack Snyder has dared to conquer such a thing in his 2009 adaptation. We at the Versus Machine Podcast feel Snyder got some of the essence of purpose and characters, but he missed the biggest points. Unfortunately, this leaves us wanting in a way that may be hard to conquer for any fan.
