Okay, Apes months was last month, but we were having trouble getting together during June, so we had to do it near the end of June.  And then, Scott had to travel seven hours to Pensacola when he would have rather been subjecting himself to the torture of editing this show.  So, at long last, it's here.  And if you think we stick to Apes for the entire show, then you haven't listened to D4G before.  Welcome aboard.  It's a fun ride!

Guest geeks Matt and Sam join us again as Ron goes AWOL for Scout Camp. Ryan comes in complaining about his new ReAction Rocketeer action figures.  This obviously leaves him in a sad mood as he starts to inquire of our younger guest geeks about the national tragedies they'd endured.  After that we take a run through the mailbag.  I'll tell you what is terrific.  When we first started this podcast, we were desperate for an email.  NOw, we get more than we can keep up with!  Keep them coming.  geeks@dinner4geeks.com .

This week we're joined by our guest Geek Godzilla!  Actually it's the Jakks Pacific giant Godzilla brought along by one of our Guest Geeks this week.  Jeff had prior commitments, so it took TWO guest geeks to fill his seat (ahem).  Matt Colvin returns and brings with him Sam Arbo! RYan makes sure to give Scott giref over his brand new Dinner 4 Geeks t-shirt (which can be found at the D4G shop at http://cafepress.com/dinner4geeks), then Ron makes a correction to Scott's scomments on teh Two True Freaks roundtable, but makes an error himself.  Then we get gneerational, tlaking about the differences in Khan preference amongst generations and we try to explain to the kids about the world BSW (Before Star Wars). Oh, and Scott waxes poetically about a podcast he has fallen in love with, Star Wars Oxygen).  Sit back, order an entree and let's have dinner!

Hey, everybody.  Ryfun here. Sorry, I couldn't resist.  Remember when we did the Final Four Geeks?  Well, at that time, you may have noticed a shift to a closer to day and date release schedule...or maybe you didn't.  Either way, we had actually shifted to a "week of" release schedule in order to maximize our conversations about current events.  However, this left a couple of unused epiosodes in the hopper.  Like this one, for example.  And, well, this week, three of the four geeks took off on me, so we couldn't record. So you get this instead. And to tell you the truth, I'm glad we finally got to share this one with you.  We recorded it back in March, and we talk about the future of action figures, and close strong with Atari 2600 nostalgia that goes, as is typical for us, nowhere you'd think it would, but yet, is golden!

Oh, the trouble with selling scooters on Craig's List.  And that's not a euphemism. Then the talk is about toys and what it it took to make a toy get our nattention, what we did with them, and how we paid for them. Jeff and Scott discuss the anniversary 2-CD set KISS40. And then our attention turns to our comments on X-Men: Days of Future Past. Ron's off next week, so enjoy him while you can!

Episode 67: Oliver Stone's JFK v Godzilla

Well, Ryan’s got teeth to make, so this week we bring in a Guest Geek Scott has been threatening to bring in for some time now, a young fella named Matt Colvin, and Matt knocks it out of the park.  Most of the discussion centers on the recent Godzilla movie with a little of our usual side trips sprinkled in for fun!

This week, the Geeks getinto a rant about the "diversity" issue with the Star Wars VII cast.  They also jump headlong into a discussion of their siblings and whether or not they share their geekiness.  And THEN Ron talks about his childhood days as a gold miner in Alaska.  I wish I were kidding, but I'm not.

This week!  Finally!  Thank God!  We have a winner!  The Final Four Geeks comes to a fiery and spectacular conclusion as we pick a winner.  Will it be Star Wars Episode IV or Doctor Who?  Come on, you're not an idiot.  FIgure it out for yourself.  Also, we give away the Raiders of the Lost Ark poster signed by Dennis Muren and Ben Burtt!  Plus we announce our next big shameless ploy to get five-star votes!  We also get heavy into this Star Wars thing: from the casting announcements to the destruction of the EU.  And Jack is back and the Geeks react to the return of 24!

The Final Four Geeks is narrowed down to two!  Heck, we may choose a winner before next year's starts!  This week we talk about Jeff and Ron's appearance on Back to the Bins, the seldom-seen film Odd Jobs, the Veronica Mars movie, Gravity, AND we launch into a feud with another podcast!

This week, you get two--count 'em, TWO!--weeks' worth of D4G, including our incredible Final Four Geeks selections!  Will the Cinderella Easy Bake Oven survive to the Final Four? In this episode we also discuss the impending demise of the Expanded Universe.  Mark this one, too: Ryan says he will not buy any of the new action figures for Episodes VII, VIII, and IX.  Write that down.  We WILL hold it against him later.  Ron recaps GnomeCon 2014 and fondly recalls the Con-Funk.  We then all try to quit the podcast and compare ourselves to the Beatles.  Is that a stretch?  Listen and see...wait, listen and see? We talk about creative playtime during our childhoods. Also, parody mags like Mad, Cracked, Crazy, Sick, and Stupid.  And we name drop podcasters like mad men. The Leylands, Trentus Magnus, Spataro, the whole nine yards.

We're sort of down to two geeks this week, as Jeff has a scheduled appointment that causes him to miss all but the last five minutes or so of the show (sorry, Jeff fans), and something comes up a tthe last minute that keeps Ryan from being able to make it as well.  Fortunately, we have Jeff's votes in the Final 4 Geeks, and we deputize Ron's son Tad, so we're in business.

 

And, of course, our contest giving away a Raiders poster signed by Ben Burtt and Dennis Muren continues.  Just submit a 5-star review to any of the three feeds that host our show, Dinner 4 Geeks, Two True Freaks Presents Dinner 4 Geeks, and Two True Freaks! 2, and we'll enter you into the drawing.  Remember to send us a copy of the review along with your contact info to geeks@dinner4geeks.com so you can be the big winner!

You can also email your picks in the Final 4 Geeks to geeks@dinnerforgeeks.com as well.

The next round in the Final 4 Geeks gets underway as we vote on the Sweet Sixteen and things don't go exactly the way some of us want them to. 

 

Plus, straight from the pages of the Two True Freaks Facebook page, it's a discussion on the ethics of getting autographs for the purpose of selling them!

 

Ron ruins the whole evening by bringing some Justice League branded ripoff Lik-M-Aid, and Ryan and Jeff can't keep themselves away.

 

Plus, the story of Ryan's mysterious package from Rancho Obi-Wan...

Episode 59: Final 4 Geeks

The Geeks have an announcement to make that could mean a big prize for you!  It's in the episode!

Now, be honest.  You're sick of seeing all those big tournament brackets at your workplace or school.  You don't really care about the basketball tournament.  Well, here's a bracket for you.  We call it the Final 4 Geeks.  Cast your votes when you see it posted on the Dinner 4 Geeks and Two True Freaks webpages.  Listener votes will count for 50% of the vote total!

We also hit on Disney's Planes and the Peanuts movie.

It's a long night of fun with the geeks, who, after pondering the purpose of their existence, decide to soldier on with another great dinner!  Of course, since we missed last week, we jsut had to give you some extra this week!  After we discuss continuing to do the podcast, we move on to an analysis of Ryan's recent dream.  After that, it's the return of the Core 4 and this time it's your Core 4 film scores.  Madness--and the fact that Ron didn't get the email--ensues.  We close out with a lesson, by popular demand, on how to say "Aw-sum!"  As in, "Have y'all seen Roadhouse yet?  It's Aw-sum!"

Because no one demanded it…except Ron.  It’s the sequel to the least-downloaded episode of D4G ever! The 2014 Edition of the Wookiee Awards!  And this time we enlisted your help maybe you’d actually care about the results!  It’s our take on the best that 2013 had to offer!  Plus we heap grief on Trentus Magnus, and we heap praise on Professor Alan.  All in a day’s work.

It’s Dinner 4 Geeks After Hours!  The evening starts well enough with a discussion of Scouts and Girl Scout Cookies.  Plus, Scott gets to gloat about his find of original Star Wars figures that are in fantastic condition.  But then, it turns horribly sideways and begins to sound like a bunch of old guys having dinner late at night…oh, never mind.  Anyway, we always post the Explicit warning on the episode.  This one probably deserves TWO warnings.

Scott is drinking coffee now, for no real good reason, but before Jeff gets to tell HIS coffee story Ryan whips his brand new Alien figures out.  Then Ronald whips out Christmas presents for us!!  Yes, I said Christmas presents!  And they were worth the wait!  We close with a discussion of the Star Wars story committee and plugs for various podcasts, including Trentus Magnus Donkey Punches Reality and Star Wars Monthly Mondays.

Episode 52: He was Fellatiatin'

The Geeks talk about Alter Ego’s tribute to Comics Buyer’s Guide and applaud the fact that CBG got a decent sendoff.  This leads to a conversation about TV shows that never got a proper sendoff.  The ones that were canceled and left on a cliffhanger.  We get into our usual observation of bizarre minutiae, then the show closes with a nearly three-minute A chord!

Episode 50: Giant-Sized 50th Episode and First Birthday Spectacular!

It’s our 50th Episode and it comes right around our first birthday, so we’re celebrating both in one epic episode.  Let me warn you now that if you’re the type who gets frustrated during our debates and you want to jump into it, you’re going to get REALLY frustrated.  I’ll tell you why in a second.  We talk about the things that the younger generation respects the history of.  And then the discussion turns to the things Disney should acquire if they remain in acquisition mode.  This gets hot.  Then Scott calls Bill Watterson an a-hole, which launches possibly the most epic blowup in the history of D4G!  If you enjoy this show at all, this is the one for you!  If you’ve ever THOUGHT about checking out this show, THIS IS THE ONE FOR YOU!

It’s the night after Thanksgiving, and Ryan’s brother Uncle Daddy joins us for our dinner.  Along the way, we get into a discussion of trading cards, starting with Star Wars, Wacky Packages, Mars Attacks, and KISS cards.  From there, it’s off to a discussion of how KISS get their powers.  Doctor Who’s 50th Anniversary Special enters the fray, as well.  Oh, and boobies.  And then Knightriders?  And the Bionic Ear?  Oh, you just have to listen to it…

Episode 46: Freeballin'

Yes, we released this one a little early.  Ryfun has to do his husbandly duties and go on an anniversary trip with the missus (to Walt Disney World, of course), and we didn’t want to sit on this one.  You'll understand when you hear it.  It’s good stuff!  The geeks discuss the release date for Episode VII!  We also talk about the Six Million Dollar Man and Godzilla.  We also have a genuine Bob Hope-style walk on.  Well, actually, more like a Dean Martin-style walk-on, but still…  Plus, is there a moratorium on “that’s what she said”?!?  If so, the length of the podcast will drop by half!

Episode 45: Return of the Ackface

We’re Jeffless for the first time in a lonnnnng time.  We’ve really got to find a backup Fourth geek.  Any takers?  We talk about a cool website called thehappeningbook.net .  This thing is awesome!  A kid kept a journal in 1978, when he was in second grade, and on this website, he publishes a page a day, corresponding with the date in 1978.  You MUST check it out.  We share our misgivings about the turmoil that seems to be surrounding the Episode VII Production.  You’ll notice that when we recorded this episode, the EpVII release date hadn’t been announced yet.  We get into a discussion of It’s a Wonderful Life and of classic cereals, life Baron Von Redberry!  And we miss Jeff during the discussion of exactly why Scott doesn’t care for The Simpsons.  Then, the weirdest thing happens.  Ryan tells tales about his friend Ackface, and Ackface comes walking in the door!  Awk-ward.

Episode 40: The One Where We Get to Finish a Sentence

Yes, this week there's no Ryan, so we all get to finish our sentences...only to realize our sentences aren't all that great.  We delve into some 1987 Starlog Magazines and read the Medialog section to see which announced projects were made (some eventually) and which just quietly disappeared.  There’s brief talk about the new Six Million Dollar Man comic series.  Scott’s bizarre organizational system is questioned and broken down for those who can understand it.  Jeff brings up the discovery of lost Doctor Who episodes.  Ron brings his latest find from…believe it or not, the library!

This is it!  Our third and final attempt to muddle our way through a discussion of the Star Wars revival!  Ryan and Jeff engage in a bizarre Scottish joke off (that’s JOKE off).  Scott discusses his forthcoming book, It Takes the Village People.  No one likes Scott’s Rowlf impression, which comes in the midst of a discussion of Jim Henson.  Our first thoughts on Agents of SHILED as well as The Blacklist.

It’s the night before Scott’s birthday and the Geeks are bearing gifts.  We continue the discussion about the Star Wars revival.  Geeks and girls don’t mix, as evidenced by a tale of the late FSU television show Static Wasteland.

Episode 37: The Winged Black Super-Hero!

What are your recollections of the great Star Wars revival of the early 1990s?  That’s what the geeks talk about this week…Well, that’s what they TRY to tlak about this week, but wandering brains never stay on one subject for long, so along the way Carvel Ice Cream commercials are discussed, Your desired Star Wars spin-off movie, Harry Potter spin-off movies, Tripping the Rift, the legendary Willie’s Wee-Nee Wagon, Robert Schimmel (even though they didn’t know it)—oh, and we bash the Islamic Republic of South Carolina again, for good measure.

Episode 36: Who's Been Eating Glazed Donuts in Bed?

This week, in light of the upcoming 3-3/4” Alien and the 3-3/4” Six Million Dollar Man action figure lines, the guys discuss the vintage action figure lines they’d like to see.  Ron expresses his disappointment with the lack of flesh in Rock of Ages.  The D4G Musical first comes to life.  The origins of Bear Trap Maniac are explored and an action figure line is proposed.   More adult, er, adolescent matters are discussed, and then Ron and Scott tear off into From Hell by Alan Moore.

Episode 35: Looking for the Affman

You may or may not notice, but Ron had a scheduling conflict and is therefore not present for this episode.  In his stead, we welcome Guest Geek Midi!  We finally get around to discussing the casting of Ben Affleck as The Batman.  Even though everyone else on the internet insists on calling him Batfleck, Scott insists on The Affman. The discussion doesn’t go where you might think.  There’s also a pretty robust chat about the deicision to go with practical effects and film for Episode VII that once again doesn’t go where you’d think!

Episode 29: The Geeks Meet...a Girl!

This week the Geeks find themselves joined by…a girl!  However will this unfold?  D4G listener Alison, who questions her geek credentials, joins the geeks and finds her inner geek. Ron runs late, so the Pacific Rim discussion doesn’t get to reach full flower, though Jeff and Scott saw it, and Ryan has good insight into the toy situation.   Scott brings an item he found in his storage unit and lets the others try to guess what it is.  Can you figure it out before they do?  Then, there’s the adventures in a magic shop.  Trust us, it explains a lot.  This week we also unveil a new feature called the Core 4: four things in a given topic that help define you.  The inaugural list: Core 4 Geek Movies.

Episode 28: What's My Beef, Geeks?

Ryan recaps his alcohol-fueled trip to Puerto Rico and discusses the new Star Trek internet productions.  The guys engage in a live internet meme.  How do you treat bad movies, like, say, Never Too Young to Die?  We have to explain what Dial MTV was to Ryan.  Scott's big rant is EU-related and places a target squarely on Timothy Zahn. Jeff spars over the Star Trek movies vs. Voyager.

We're compiling a listener questions episode.  ANY questions whatsoever can be emailed to dinner4geeks@gmail.com

Here it is!  The audio of the Dinner 4 Geeks panel at Ancient City Con 7 in Jacksonville, Florida.  We paid good gas moeny to drive down and we even had to buy tickets to the convention to get in to host our panel (I wish I were kidding about that), and we had practically no one in the room who wasn't related to one of us.  One the other hand, we had teh room to ourselves, the acoustics were great, and we had a good laugh at all the people who poked their heads in teh  door thinking we were SERVING a dinner for geeks.  Along the way, we discuss cons in general and Man of Steel!

The title of the episode is used but is only tangential to the action.  However, it does sound like one of the all-time greatest pickup lines, so we used it for the episode title.  For the second week in a row, Ron misses the show, so Jeff (FINALLY) gets his geek brother to do the show with us.  What follows is basically us conducting a Mike Douglas Show-style interview with him.  Along the way we geek out about Star Trek, You Can't Do That on Television, Big Bang Theory, Action Figures, Marvel Comics, Cinefantastique, and a WHOLE lot more!

Ron's missing!  As in, not there, so all you Ron fans are in for a big disappointment.  What do you mean which one is he?  Jeff and Scott reminisce about 4th of July and Jeff's birthday and the connection between the two.  And Ryan reminisces about that terrific Velvet Jones movie.

Episode 22: Fuhrerpalooza

Yes, for whatever reason everything leads back to a Hitler joke.  Are hitlers jokes appropriate?  Probably not, but what the hell?  It's just dinner, right?  We get Ron's take on Star Trek Into Darkness.  The sad, sad, sad history of toy adapatations leads to a discussion about what kind of toy adaptation Ryan would like to make.  And for good measure, since making repeated Hitler jokes wasn't enough, we start making a few racist jokes, too!  I would say you had to be there, but through the magic of podcasting you ARE there.  God help you.

No, seriously, this episode is about spoilers and how sacred they are, and what the shelf life is on them.  That having been said, we discuss a LOT of classic spoilers.  If you haven't seen Lost, Soylent Green, Citizen Kane (first time those two were ever uttered in the same sentence, I'll bet!), The Empire Strikes Back, The Sixth Sense, The Crying Game, or Planet of teh Apes, turn back now!  Don't say we didn't warn you.  However, we do talk about spoilers within the context of Star Trek Into Darkness and somehow manage to NOT ruin it!

the Geeks revisit Scott's belief that weveryone has a super power, no matter how insignificant.  His is the Naked Hex, which somehow leads to a discussion of Harvey Keitel's porpensity for nudity...don't ask, jsut listen.  Then it ADDs itself right into a talk baout the Star Wars Holiday Special, which segues into KISS Meets the Phantom and the realization that these two TV gems aired within a few weeks of each other!  Atari 2600s, 5600s, and 7800s get their moment on this episode of D4G, as does Kool-Aid man!

The Geeks come to grips with the fact that a large number of the people they talk about on the show die shortly after they are discussed on the program.  Of course, most of these people are in their 80s or 90s or are gravely ill, but still... Scott remembers being dressed down by Greg Brady... Ryan looks a stranger up in the phone book at 1am and calls him!  Ron has a fit over a box of Star Wars fruit snacks... Jeff is prepared to discuss sequels that enhace and sequels that harm the legacies of the originals.

This week we add a FIFTH geek to the mix...to kind of even things out from the first three episodes where we only had three geeks.  Ryan's brother Darren, who is definitely an action figure geek gets into the mix.  The guys talk the rerelease of Jurassic Park, their first record-buying experiences, and action figure collections!

This week, the Geeks pay tribute to Roger Ebert, except Ron, who hated the man and will probably burn for what he says.  Scott believes the end is near for the EU.  Ryan has a what's-it-called.  Jeff asks everyone to name their guilty pleasures, only so he can make an admission of his own...

Another new venue for the Geeks and this one...well, while there's some good stuff here, it may have been better if we'd just published a transcript.  Through the course of things we touch on, despite an overwhelming background noise, PS 238, serious Star Wars, Torchwood, the iPhone's resistance to toilet water, Marvel Unlimited app, the end of Argo, geek gaming, our video game wish list, Saturday morning kids shows, and Ryan's Sleestak action figure.  I tell you all this because you may not be able to make it out.

Episode 1

The inaugural edition of Dinner 4 Geeks gets off to an inauspicious start, as one of the 4 Geeks, Ryan, can't make it to the recording.  That's okay, though.  We carry on without him, and we talk about him behind his back as well.  Plus, lots and lots of Star Wars, with a little Twilight Zone, Ultraman, and more thrown into the discussion.
