Doctor, who?!

In Episode TWTT 9, Yomar and Stan talk about Mummy on the Orient Express, The Walking Dead’s Season 5 Premier and Selfie Episode 2. And don’t forget to wish a very Happy Birthday to Stan. Today is his birthday!

The doctor takes Clara on a purported last hurrah. By many accounts and ours, it was an interesting plot. The Orient Express in space. How cool is that? And a mummy too?! Wow!

Sometimes, the only choices you have are bad ones, but you still have to choose.

As always, we gladly shared some of the comments you left on YouTube and voicemail for TWTT Episode 8.

#DoctorWho RECAP: Timey Wimey Tea Time Episode 8: Kill The Moon

 

Doctor, who?!

In Episode TWTT 8, we talk about Kill the Moon. The doctor takes Clara and Courtney to the moon – to make up for his mouth garbage. By many accounts and ours, it was a good story. Even Stan liked it. Some say that the moral of episode 7 is to choose life. Or is it about growing up?

You’re never finished with anyone while they can still make you angry.

As always, we gladly shared some of the comments you left on YouTube for TWTT Episode 6, we played some previous submissions for the #SoftKitty song contest and, heck yes, we went deep.

Tune in Saturday, October 18th at 12 noon ET for a pre-recorded TWTT Episode 9 on http://www.twitch.tv/geekyantics or http://www.allgames.com. Hopefully, we got the tech to do this.

October 18th. 12 noon for New York City, Washington, D.C. and Miami, 9am for the U.S. West Coast, 4pm in Madrid, 5pm for London and 7pm, Bucharest.

#TWTT Soft Kitty Singing Contest Details & Voting Page @Faryna @Yogizilla

Fellow Whovians, Whovers, geeks, and Hearthstoners – here is the official Timey-Wimey Tea Time Singing Contest page!

Stan feels terrible about my sleeping issues so he has rallied the TWTT community to have everyone sing me some lullabyes.  The song of choice is Soft Kitty!  As an incentive, three of the best singers, as selected by the TWTT and overall Geeky Antics community, will win one of three Hearthstone throw pillows.

BTW, we are not affiliated with anyone discussing testicles and other nonsense under the #TWTT hashtag.  We apologize about the confusion in advance!

You may not love Hearthstone or video games as much as I do but, hey, it’s a throw pillow..  You can use it for cat naps, travel, or questionable decor.  It’s pretty darn spiffy, if you ask me!

NOTE:  This is a *contest* under the overall giveaways category.  The distinction is that selection of winners will be objective, as opposed to random.  Read “How It Works” section for details how this specific contest works.

#TWTT XTC & #FlashFiction Potluck Kick-Off @Mattomcfly @Faryna

…Greetings, friends!

We have two bonus #TWTT videos for you this week, which should offset any potential interruption coming up in the near future (details on that forthcoming).  Matt Bradford of Zombie Cast, Video Game Outsiders, GamesRadar, and Guiness World Records joins us as we GO DEEPER®!  These shows feature what you, our beautiful community, have requested; namely, LIVE flash fiction readings!

In addition to the three pieces I read on-air, I added another piece I just whipped up.  Hope you enjoy them!  XTX001 Part 2  is where you can go to listen to the live readings and our concepts thereof.

If you want to be part of my #FlashFiction Potluck, e-mail your piece to yomar(arroba)geekyantics(punto)net – looking forward to inspiring each other!

…Proper attribution/credit will be provided, of course!  This is just a fun way to share quick, raw fictional works with each other.  In future installments, I’d like to share writing prompts and challenge everyone (myself included) with monthly themes.  For example, we can do word count limits, use word banks, or set up specific topics and formats.  Let me know what you think, lovely geeks!

 

Timey-Wimey Tea Time PART 1

 

  • What is the purpose of podcasting?
  • What keeps us motivated with podcasting and social media?
  • Is the Video Game Outsiders approach a good model to follow?
  • Do we have a responsibility to our fans or community as creatives?
  • Can you do something you love AND be productive with it?
  • Doctor Who Series 8 mid-season review.
  • Writers need to know when to “leave a moment alone”.
  • Series 8 may suffer from too many hands in the pot…
  • …or is it lack of creative direction?
  • The importance of managing expectations in ALL ventures.
  • Narrative Structure VS. Podcast Structure

 

Timey-Wimey Tea Time PART 2

 

  • Is Danny Pink manly or whimpy?
  • A man’s struggle of ego vs. righteousness vs. love/compassion.
  • Does the Doctor love Clara
  • Stan’s encounter with infidelity, deceipt, and mind games.
  • Is it insecurity or strength?
  • Flash fiction readings..  These are truly raw works!
  • Inspirations and creative processes driving our fictional works.
  • A future of lazy couch potatoes.
  • Foreshadowing of augmented and virtual reality gone wrong.
  • Control is an illusion.
  • Everyone has a boss.  Complete freedom is also an illusion.

 

…and now for some flash ficiton!

 

Mrs. Busy Work

“Honey, I am awfully busy today.. Can this wait?”

Wilfredo was very perplexed. Why did all this have to be done now? He had deadlines up the wazoo. As it was, he would be lucky to get any sleep in the coming weeks. In spite his pleas, his wife, Suki, insisted.

“No this NEEDS to be done NOW.”

Today was the day Suki decided that everyone would take on the urgent tasks of relacing all shoes, shuffling furniture about, cleaning the fridge, vacuuming every nook and cranny, and mastering the absolutely mudane. As usual, these “plans” were executed on a whim. There was no distinction between want and need. Every task was treated as if thousands of lives depended on them.

The kids played it smart. After bathing the dogs and mowing the lawn, they magically disappeared. Wilfredo continued to break his back as Suki barked unrelenting orders.

“No no no… That’s not how you load the dishwasher. Do it this way.”

“Sweetheart, I read the manual and this model has the sprinkler arms in the middle. Every dish should face the center.”

“WELL, I don’t care what the manual says.. I want it done MY way.”

Wilfredo thought to himself, “This is gonna be a looooong day…”

#DoctorWho RECAP: Timey Wimey Tea Time Episode 7: Mouth Garbage

#DoctorWho RECAP: Timey Wimey Tea Time Episode 7: Mouth Garbage and Mid Season Review

Doctor, who?!

In Episode TWTT 7, we talk about racism, mouth garbage, robots, the mid season review and more. We noticed the mention of racism cooled down the retweets big time. Can you say, false consciousness? [grin]

As always, we gladly shared some of the comments you left on YouTube for TWTT Episode 6, we played new submissions for the #SoftKitty song contest and, heck yes, we went deep.

There is a small chance that we’ll have to skip the 18th and 25th. Yomar will be at Walker Stalker con on the 18th and Stan may be traveling on the 25th. We’ll let you know on the 11th.

Tune in Saturday, October 11th at 12 noon ET for an interactive, live chat experience of TWTT Episode 8 on http://www.twitch.tv/geekyantics or http://www.allgames.com.

#DoctorWho RECAP: Timey-Wimey Tea Time Episode 6: Is Doctor Who a proper kid’s show?

Doctor, who?!

In Episode TWTT 6, we point out the elephant in the room and ponder if Doctor Who is still a kids show. The absence of strong language, graphic violence and sexually charged content, does not make it kid safe per se. But if you hear us out first, you’ll have big take aways when you watch (or rewatch) Doctor Who Episode 5, Time HeistThat’s what our community is saying.

As always, we gladly shared some of the comments you left on YouTube for TWTT Episode 4 and we played new submissions for the #SoftKitty song contest. Oh, heck yes, Yomar has fixed the sound problems.

We talked about ABC’s new romantic comedy, Selfie. Both Yomar and Stan like it. It’s not just a Karen Gillan thing – formerly Amy Pond of Doctor Who. There’s more than a few interesting characters. Keep your eye out for Charmonique.

Bloo Needs Your Help! #AnimalRescue #Crowdfunding #RealTalk

Geeks, gamers, friends, family, wholehearted GANG supporters..  It’s time for some #RealTalk.  I have an urgent message:  I need you (and I do not say that lightly)!

I am not one to ask for hand-outs or “sell out”. I try to avoid excessive monetization of content because it can detract from the message and overall experience… But I realize things do not happen unless you ask.  Here I am asking humbly and wholeheartedly:

I need your help. Bloo needs your help.  If you’re ready to donate right away to help a precious little life, here is the widget.  You can also use the ImRaising donation page.

…This Is Bloo:

CAM00052
20140727_174637
20140922_125646
20140817_125239

Bloo is the GANG mascot but that makes light of our relationship.  She is one of my dearest friends and family members. Some may find this weird but I feel a strong bond towards this creature of God. Of course, I love my family but Bloo is a helpless creature.. And she is not doing well.

Bloo is one of the many animal rescues we have nursed back to health.  She was left to fend for herself inside a mailbox in our community.  Every month I encounter two or three stories like this.  It angers me that people can be so careless, heartless, and just plain EVIL.  Usually, we help abandoned pets recover and find them loving homes with responsible families. I have grown particularly attached to this lil gal. That is why it hurts me to know that the rough patch we have hit prevents me from taking her to the vet now that she could really use a good check-up, just to be safe.

 

What’s Wrong With Bloo?

 

Well, it seems like it is just a sprained leg or, at worst, a dislocated hip. The pet community has been reassuring but most pet lovers have told me what I already know: “Take her to a vet already!”   It seems others have encountered similar symptoms with no complications but seeing Bloo hobble along and struggle with basic functions.. It hurts me deeply.

I am choking back tears as I write this.  Those that know me on a very personal level know that, when I let someone in, I love you fully.. without hesitation.

I am not a proud person but I feel like such a scrub for not being able to provide for my family fully right now. Between unexpected car repairs, increases in utility costs, and other bills, money is being spent faster than I can make it right now. Many of you have donated in countless ways without my asking. I truly appreciate that.. but now I must ask for more..  Just a bit more.

In Episode TWTT 4, we gave a nod to the humor but struggle to find a deeper idea in Doctor Who Episode 3, Robot of Sherwood.

#DoctorWho Weekend Starting September 12th 2014 – With @GadaboutGamer, @Yogizilla, and @Faryna!

Greetings and salutations, fellow Whovians, geeks, and creatives!

We have tons of updates, musings, and excitement to share with you so let’s jump right to it.  In case you missed our announcements on #TWTT EP3.5, the video has materialized below, for your enjoyment.  Stan Faryna also put together another lovely recap of what our community is calling the “Best Ever Doctor Who Podcast”.


Doctor Who - Doctor Who Catchphrases - Fantastic, Brilliant, Cool - Animated GIF

Fantastic!  Brilliant!  Cool!

Doctor Who Weekend – Timey Wimey Tea Time! #GeeksUnite

At 5pm Eastern / 10pm GMT today, September 12th, we’ll be doing a special Doctor Who Legacy Q&A with developers, Tiny Rebel Games, in collaboration with the fine folks of 42 Level 1.  Come hang out with me, Ali, and the AllGames community.  Since the Q&A will focus on this wonderful little mobile game, please keep questions related to the game itself and not the series.  Can you contain your Doctor Who love until Saturday morning? The developers have seen ahead so let’s not tempt them to spoil what’s to come (they really can’t, anyway).

Join The LIVE Chathttp://www.allgames.com/live

Come get some awesome!

We’ll be following up with the premiere of the Timey-Wimey Tea Time experience on AllGames on Saturday, September 13th, at 9am Eastern / 4pm GMT.  Stan and I will be traveling afterwards but we hope to follow up on Sunday with some Doctor Who marathons and, perhaps, inconceivable community events. I’m thinking group viewings and giveaways – if we see the love going on here in the comments.

Speaking of giveaways, there will be plenty during the Doctor Who Legacy special event.  In fact, everyone will get in-game items for Doctor Who Legacy just for showing up!

 

The GANG Doubled On YouTube

We have to mention this now: thanks to your fantastic support, our GeekyAntics YouTube channel subscribers have doubled in just a week. That’s how you grow a community.

The #TWTT community is growing geometrically and your enthusiastic support is overwhelming – in a good way!

Keep the voicemail messages, comments, faves, and shares coming! Even if we don’t always mention it, we are taking notice. It fills our hearts with joy to see so much love and beauty in the Doctor Who fan community!
