Dan Persons says:

Even in the anything-to-get-your-adrenaline-pumping world of Hong Kong cinema, RIGOR MORTIS stands out. The story of a famous actor, Chin Siu-Ho (played by actual famous actor Chin Siu-Ho — your heard us), who has to contend with a seedy apartment building whose walls reverberate with echoes of his most famous film, the hopping vampire horror-comedy MR. VAMPIRE — including mysterious spirits, a mystical warrior-cum-resterateur (played by MR. VAMPIRE cast-mate Anthony “Friend” Chan), and, yes, a hopping vampire — the film plays as both a tribute to, and a dark and dizzyingly intense reimagining of, a beloved sub-genre. Director Juno Mak makes his feature film debut with this visually stunning, shockingly violent, and at times surprisingly moving, effort, and we were eager to discuss the roots of the project in the legendary MR. VAMPIRE franchise, and the challenges of creating this effects-laden feast. Click on the player to hear the show.

The latest episode of Presenting the Transcription Feature brings you the one, the only . . . Groucho Marx. Groucho’s finest turn in the world of radio was as the host of You Bet Your Life. Ostensibly a quiz show, the quiz portion was almost an afterthought.  The real fun was in Groucho doing the pre-quiz interviews, during which, if the contestants said the secret word, they could win a little extra cash. Groucho’s whip-smart wit could take the blandest of comments and spin comedy gold from it. Secondly, on Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar, actor Vincent Price guest-stars as himself.  In an episode that plays on his public persona as an art aficionado, Price hires freelance insurance investigator Johnny Dollar to track down a painting that’s been stolen from his collection.  Price then insists on joining Dollar each step of the way.

Bionic Wiki entry

The Six Million Dollar Blog entry

(coming soon)



Alex Green was born in San Diego where he has lived his whole life, rarely venturing outside the safe confines of Southern California. Growing up, his parents tried to persuade him that the funny man running in slow motion on the television wasn't worth watching, but he knew better. He knew much, much better.

 

A lifelong fan of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, Alex hadn't been an adult for very long (some would say he still isn't) when he started making several trips a month up to Los Angeles to attend toy and collectibles shows in order to amass a huge collection of Bionic memorabilia. A vast collection that he no longer possesses due to an accident involving a pencil, a rabid weasel and a rapidly descending elevator (Actually, the advent of eBay in the late 90's took the thrill of the hunt out of it for him, so he gave it up).

 

 

Currently working out of his modest two-bedroom apartment (or twelve-bedroom mansion as he refers to it when describing his digs to people who’ve never visited him at home), Alex is a free-lance web designer and the webmaster of The Six Million Dollar Blog. The newest Bionic site on the web except for all the others that have come after. He hopes one day to meet his hero Lee Majors in person and his biggest regret in life is that he no longer fits into his Six Million Dollar Man jammies.

Trivia:

Luke Skywalker’s uncle Owen has just purchased two droids, R2-D2 and C-3PO. Luke has been assigned to clean and maintain them. In the process of working on R2-D2, Luke discovers that his ‘little friend’ is carrying a secret message, delivered by a beautiful holographic woman. When Luke asks C-3PO if he recognizes this woman, does C-3PO specifically identify her?

 

News: The Doctor Returns: Doctor will return to a familiar setting in the Who season 8 finale Can you believe it? Peter Capaldi is nearly done filming his very first year as the Doctor. Exciting! And, to finish off, he’s returning to a scene where his previous two incarnations visited not so very long ago — the National Museum of Cardiff. Doctor Who has filmed in that space a few times, including “Planet of the Dead” and “The Big Bang,” but it was used recently visited in the 50th Anniversary episode, “Day of the Doctor.” The reason that’s so notable, is because a prop was seen on set that seems decidedly Gallifreyan. Yes, what seems to be a grave marker that reads, “Rest in Peace. We Promise.” Well, if you promise, inanimate object, then it must be true. But probably not. Of course, the Gallifreyan symbol is what makes the prop so interesting. Who is that memorial stone for? The Master? All of Gallifrey? Or, indeed, the Doctor, himself? And, considering the fact that the last time we were at the Cardiff Museum, there was a very special guest appearance from a classic Doctor, we can’t help but wonder — is Tom Baker set to make a return? Speculate away!

 

News: Will Harrison Ford’s injury affect Star Wars 7? All you “Star Wars” nerds, take a deep breath. There’s no need for your brains to go all Death Star. UK website Jedi News reports Harrison Ford’s injury is worse than initially reported, and he could be away from the set of “Star Wars: Episode VII” for six months. Or possibly longer. Breathe … inhalers … come on, now … “Star Wars” fan sites are reporting there was an emergency meeting Monday morning at London’s Pinewood Studios, now that estimates say Ford will be away longer than estimated, recovering from the broken leg he suffered when one of the hydraulic doors on the Millennium Falcon fell on him.

Among the options reportedly discussed were temporarily ceasing production, re-writing the script to accommodate Ford’s recovery, or … (breathe) writing Ford out of the script entirely. Excuse me a second (begins sobbing, feverishly tears apart room, looking for inhaler). While we all keep breathing, remember that this is only a rumor and no one from LucasFilm, Disney or director J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot production company has commented. But even if part of these reports are true, it doesn’t bode well for the film’s planned December 2015 release. As U.K. pop culture site Metro reports, Ford was considered the lead actor in the movie, with Han Solo supposedly being a big part of the plot. Hey, I have an idea. Tom Selleck was almost Indiana Jones. Why doesn’t someone call and see what he’s up to?

 

Trek News: Nestle foods is trying to make a real-life, Star Trek-style food replicator What better way to make sure we’re all perfectly healthy, be it on a starship or right here on Earth, than to create a machine that figures out exactly what we need, then let it make the food to fill it. Welcome to the future. Nestlé Institute of Health Sciences (NIHS) has kicked off research and development on project “Iron Man,” which will investigate how essential nutrients affect the body, brain and gastrointestinal functions. They’ve already added 100 new scientists for the initiative. The goal? To develop a device to scan our nutrient needs, then design food around those needs, not unlike the replicators/previous models for food production featured in the various Star Trek series. In an interview with Bloomberg, NIHS director Ed Baetge said these proposed foods would be more effective at treating vitamin and nutrient deficiency than the supplements we currently use. According to Baetge, the goal would be for these devices to pop up in kitchens across the world over the next few decades, eventually becoming as ubiquitous as all our other creature comforts: “Out comes your food at the press of a button. If we do this right, it can be the next microwave in your kitchen.” This is a fascinating concept, and the applications are positively endless. Not only could this thing be a huge boon to health right here at home — with people finally having the access and knowledge to consume the exact items needed for optimal health — but, looking toward the future, you could pop one of these devices on a future Enterprise and keep your space explorers nice and healthy as they explore the stars. But the big questions — can it make a good cup of Earl Grey tea? How’s the ice cream? Can I get a martini?

165 minutes! That's two and three-quarter hours! That makes TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION the ultimate epic of explosions, brought to you by director Michael Bay, the man for whom too much is never enough. Is this outrageously elongated toy commercial an audacious triumph of style or substance, or is it indulgent garbage? Listen to Steve Biodrowski and Lawrence French debate the pros and cons of this 3D IMAX extravaganza in the Cinefantastique Spotlight Podcast, Volume 5, Number 24.

We continue our weekly podcast run in between the first and second season reviews with an interview with Jim Beard.  Jim has been on the podcast twice before and will return for an early second season episode review.  He is the developer, editor and a contributor to Gotham City 14 Miles, a collection of critical essays on the Batman 66 series.  In this interview, Jim talks with John about the development of the book, the planned sequel, the role of race in the TV Batman universe, the sexuality of the three main villains, and the top three episodes to show the doubting viewer of the relevance of the Batman series.

 

Get your copy of Gotham City 14 Miles through our Amazon store.  In doing so, you not only get a great collection of essays on the 60's Batman series, but you support The Batcave Podcast as well.  Thank you.

Comment on the episode here or write batcavepodcast@gmail.com.



A native of Toledo, Ohio, Jim Beard was introduced to comic books at an early age by his father, who passed on to him a love for the medium and the pulp characters who preceded it. After decades of reading, collecting and dissecting comics, Jim became a published writer when he sold a story to DC Comics in 2002. Since that time he's written official Star Wars and Ghostbusters comic stories and contributed articles and essays to several volumes of comic book history.

His prose work includes GOTHAM CITY 14 MILES, a book of essays on the 1966 Batman TV series; SGT. JANUS, SPIRIT-BREAKER, a collection of pulp ghost stories featuring an Edwardian occult detective; MONSTER EARTH, a giant monster anthology; and CAPTAIN ACTION: RIDDLE OF THE GLOWING MEN, the first pulp prose novel based on the classic 1960s action figure.

Currently, Jim provides regular content for Marvel.com, the official Marvel Comics website, and is a regular columnist for Toledo Free Press.

Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurrence.  It didn't happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this.  Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.  Take a moment to comment here or by writing john@chronicrift.com.

In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome.

"Requiem" - It's the day of Parker's memorial service and as Anibal says a few words on his former security chief's behalf, Parker seems to be getting the final word via his discussion with a young paranormal who can talk to the dead.  What does he think of his former collegues and why is he so interested in this one paranormal when he clearly was afraid of them when he was alive?

Bill Vernon, AKA “the Wonderful Billy Flynn,” brings the funny each week on Geek Radio Daily! His daytime alter ego is mild-mannered (well, that part is a stretch) on-air talent at WRAR Radio Station in Virginia. He actually gets paid to sit on his butt and run his mouth! His “edumacation” is from UNC-Wilmington and the Columbia School of Broadcasting. When he is not gracing the podcasting airways with his comedic stylings, you can find Billy Flynn on Xbox Live (flynn71), rockin’ out on Guitar Hero or Rock Band, watching movies, reading comics, working out, or posting on the forums at geekradiodaily.com (ding!)

 

 

 

 

 

In his twenty plus years as writer and film journalist, Dan Persons has interviewed the likes of Paul Verhoeven, Wes Craven, Stuart Gordon, Satoshi Kon and John Kricfalusi; published the well-received novella, "A Game of the Apocalypse", in The Ultimate Silver Surfer, edited by The Chronic Rift's own Keith R.A. Decandido; and been an occasional, and somewhat peculiar, guest on the public access incarnation of the Rift. He presently is the host of Mighty Movies Temple of BadMighty Movie Podcast, and The Cinefantastique Podcast when he isn't haunting the dining room of his local Popeye's.

 

 

 

A native of Toledo, Ohio, Jim Beard was introduced to comic books at an early age by his father, who passed on to him a love for the medium and the pulp characters who preceded it.

Since that time he's written official Star Wars and Ghostbusters comic stories and contributed articles and essays to several volumes of comic book history.

JANUS, SPIRIT-BREAKER, a collection of pulp ghost stories featuring an Edwardian occult detective; MONSTER EARTH, a giant monster anthology; and CAPTAIN ACTION: RIDDLE OF THE GLOWING MEN, the first pulp prose novel based on the classic 1960s action figure.

Tonight's Menu: Welcome to the SciFi Rewind: Firefly

Firefly is an American space western drama television series created by writer and director Joss Whedon, under his Mutant Enemy Productions label. Whedon served as an executive producer, along with Tim Minear. The series is set in the year 2517, after the arrival of humans in a new star system, and follows the adventures of the renegade crew of Serenity, a “Firefly-class” spaceship. The ensemble cast portrays the nine characters who live on Serenity. Whedon pitched the show as “nine people looking into the blackness of space and seeing nine different things”. The show explores the lives of a group of people who fought on the losing side of a civil war and others who now make a living on the outskirts of society, as part of the pioneer culture that exists on the fringes of their star system. In this future, the only two surviving superpowers, the United States and China, fused to form the central federal government, called the Alliance, resulting in the fusion of the two cultures. According to Whedon’s vision, “nothing will change in the future: technology will advance, but we will still have the same political, moral, and ethical problems as today” - See more at: http://scifidinerpodcast.com/#sthash.3OFlyp6j.dpuf

This time on Presenting the Transcription Feature, we revisit two old favorites.  On The Jack Benny Program, Jack and Mary attend a special showing of suave British actor Ronald Colman's latest movie, A Double Life.  Colman and his wife Benita Hume play themselves in this episode.  They were frequent guests on Jack’s show.  So much so that many people thought they were actually his next door neighbors.  On Dragnet, Friday and Romero are up against a criminal armed with a bomb who’s threatening to blow up City Hall unless his convict brother is released.

After receiving strange orders from superiors to keep away from HG World, McInnes and Grant turn their attention to the Happy Valley Militia, a quasi-military government reaching out from north-central Pennsylvania to control large sections of the state. As the public begins turning to these groups for help in the absence of a central government, rumors circulate of the mysterious "Generals" and their carnival-styled camps popping up in the western part of the state. Inside and under cover, Grant and McInnes find every kind of excess imaginable. Everything is for sale or trade. But what's beneath the surface?

The Batcave Podcast has just completed its look at the first season of the 1966 Batman television series.  Over the course of the first 17 episodes, the podcast has taken shape into something John hopes everyone enjoys.  But there was a different format John considered before going ahead with the show you are listening to today.  He tried out this format by sitting down with author Dayton Ward and the two recorded a commentary on the first episode of the series.  Here is the first part, edited in its entirety for your listenening pleasure.  Stay tuned, Batfans.  Next week, we're looking at the 1966 theatrical release.

TheRiddler has plans for Batman in the form of a lawsuit claiming false arrest, but Batman knows the Riddler is not as innocent as he seems. Can Batman deduce the Riddler's scheme from the puzzles he's hidden inside the lawsuit?  Can he figure out that Robin isn't Robin?  And can we find all the ideas that would be repeated throughout the series that first led to its success and would ultimately lead to its downfall?

Comment on the episode here or write batcavepodcast@gmail.com.



Dayton Ward is the author of numerous media tie-in fiction works in such realms as Star Trek and The 4400.  He is also the author of such original works as Counterstrike, The Last World War, Book 2 and The Genesis Protocol. When he's not writing or working for a software design firm, he's busy indoctrinating his two lovely daughters into the worlds that have so seriously warped his mind.

It’s back to Roarton and IN THE FLESH, the BBC3/BBC America zombie…excuse us, PDS sufferers…television series created and written by Dominic Mitchell! We’re almost at the end of Series 2, and a lot has happened since we last looked in on Kieren Walker, Amy Dyer, and the rest of the gang. This time we catch up on episodes 2-5 just in time for what is sure to be a powerful finale, but is life – and death – getting any better for the residents of Roarton? Is a Second Rising looming in their future, and can it only happen if the First Risen faces his or her eternal doom? Can happiness and harmony be found in a new world where old fears and prejudices – not to mention new ones – have risen along with the “Redeemed?” And perhaps most importantly, can a zombie evolve and even find true love?

Mike Fichera got his start as a Bat-fan during infancy when, according to his brother Victor, one of his first words was shouting "Batman! Green ones!" from the high chair while attempting to miscolor the caped crusader. As a fan of the 60’s Batman show, he learned to exclaim BIF! POW! BAM!  with every stubbed toe, or tumble down the staircase. Years later, Mike became an occasional guest on the cable-TV Chronic Rift as a Spider-Man expert and as the “shameless guy who would dress in silly costumes” for sight gags. Since 2004, Mike has been a freelance writer and artist for Marvel Comics, putting his knowledge of Spider-Man to use for the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe. Though more a Marvel than a DC, he owes much of his riddle-deciphering skills to the Dynamic Duo, and his breathy acting style to Adam West.

In this Case File, John and Paul sit down and talk with actor Tom Schanley.  To bionic fans, he played Michael Austin in The Return of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman, but there is so much more as John and Paul discover in this interview.  We talk about his desire to be an actor and his family support, his first roles, and his Six Million Degrees of Star Trek Separation besides his obvious appearance on Enterprise.
 

Comment on the episode here or write abionicpodcast@gmail.com



It all started 30 miles north of Boston, in the quaint New England coastal town of Manchester, Mass. At a young age, despite a loving family, proper upbringing and a good education, Tom Schanley decided to become an actor ---- Three defibrillator charges later, his parents threw their support behind him and the journey began.
 
That journey took him to school in New Hampshire, San Diego, England and finally the acting program at USC, where during his junior year, he landed his first professional role as Whit Champion, on the NBC drama series "The Yellow Rose."
 
After college, Tom continued studying acting with some of the best in the business: Vince Chase, Stella Adler, Winn Handman, and Roy London, to name but a few.
 
His body of work grew as well, including the television movie "The Alamo - Thirteen Days To Glory" with Alec Baldwin, the starring role in "The Return of the Six Million Dollar Man and the Bionic Woman," and stints on shows with shorter titles like "Fame," "Dynasty," "Melrose Place," and "Lonesome Dove." (He sang "country" on Fame, ladies).
 
Feature films were also on the menu. Among them, "Fever Pitch," directed by the legendary Richard Brooks, "Red Rock West" (there's a story behind that one), "Courage Under Fire," directed by Ed Zwick, starring Denzel Washington and "Conspiracy Theory," starring Mel Gibson, among others.
 
Tom continued to exercise his theater chops as well, with notable roles in the award winning "Getting Out," at the Cast Theatre, "The Wager," at the Colony Theatre and as Mark Antony in the critically acclaimed LA Shakespeare Festival production of "Julius Caesar." Tom also spent eight years with the comedy improve troop WITHOUT A NET.
 
Then came the new millennium, and with it Tom's "multi-hyphenate" status. Alongside friend and actor Jon Lindstrom, Tom wrote and Executive-Produced the feature film "The Hard Easy," starring David Boreanaz, Vera Farmiga, Henry Thomas, Bruce Dern and Peter Weller. Their second script, "Head High" is currently the subject of a bidding war at two major studios - OK - "should" be the subject of a bidding war, or so they think. Tom has a number of solo projects in the pipeline as well. Among them, the un-romantic feature film comedy "Dating Tammy," and the TV pilot "Tee Time." "Saying" the lines however, is still Tom's first love and priority, and the past couple of years have offered plenty of that: "Dexter", "Criminal Minds", "Without a Trace", " The CSI'S", "The Forgotten"..... (and a really cool puppet show in Venice Beach).
 
Tom happily resides beach-side, Santa Monica, CA. Stay tuned.

Dan Persons says:

The speaker of the Louisiana State Senate. An agoraphobic starfish. Two copies of Playboy with their centerfolds torn out. These are probably the only things actor Doug Jones hasn’t been in his variegated career. In makeup and out, whether playing an amphibious scholar, a benevolent alien, or a mute, demonic organ harvester, Jones has managed to create roles that have been at once vivid, evocative, and memorable.

It happens to be a good time for Jones. Not only was there the recent video release of the ultra-violent grindhouse action film, RAZE — in which Jones plays the entitled overseer of an all-female death-match — but the complete third season disc set of FALLING SKIES, where Jones is the alien ambassador Cochise, has just come out, and now Jones appears as a wandering (and canny) minstrel in the dizzyingly eclectic post-apocalyptic/ROAD WARRIOResque/alien invasion/western, DUST OF WAR, which just became available on VOD. We’re thrilled to be able to talk with Doug Jones about all of this, and more, as we kick off our second season of THE CFQ INTERVIEW. Click on the player to hear the show.

Robert Greenberger (born July 24, 1958) is a writer and editor.

Greenberger was born in Brooklyn in New York City, the son of Edwin L. Greenberger and Joan Greenberger. A lifelong fan of comic books, comic strips, science fiction and Star Trek, he drifted towards writing and editing, encouraged by his father and inspired by Superman’s alter ego, Clark Kent.

While at SUNY-Binghamton, Greenberger wrote and edited for the college newspaper, Pipe Dream, moving from general assignment writer to Arts Editor, Managing Editor and ultimately Editor-in-Chief.  He served an internship at Gannett’s Binghamton Sun-Bulletin as a feature writer and reviewer.

Upon graduation, he worked for Starlog Press as Managing Editor ofFangoria.  He was also an Associate Editor for Starlog and while there, created Comics Scene, the first nationally distributed magazine to focus on comic books, comic strips and animation.  The magazine lasted 11 issues before its first cancellation at which time Greenberger went to work on their sports magazines.

In 1984, he joined DC Comics as an Assistant Editor, working with Len Wein and Marv Wolfman on DC’s Golden Anniversary projects Who’s Who andCrisis on Infinite Earths.  He went on to act as assistant editor to numerous titles for each editor until he was promoted to editor.  During his tenure, his titles included Star Trek, Suicide Squad, Warlord, Doom Patrol, Lois Lane, Action Comics Weekly, Time Masters, Secret Origins, The Hacker Files and others.

By 1990, he had given up editing to become the company’s Editorial Coordinator, helping grow the Editorial Administration department.  When he left the company, he was Manager-Editorial Operations.

In March 2000, he left DC to become a Producer for Gist Communications, television news and listings web site. After ten months there, he learned some new skills and got out before the dotcom bubble burst.

In January 2001, he joined Marvel Comics as Director-Publishing Operations.  During his year with the company, he oversaw editorial schedules, Production, Manufacturing, the Print Library, and other departments.

In January 2002, he left Marvel and rejoined DC in May 2002 as a Senior Editor-Collected Editions.  He helped grow that department, introducing new formats and improving the editions’ editorial content. He also managed DC’s ElfQuest publishing program.

He left DC in January 2006, becoming a freelance writer and editor.  His clients included Weekly World News, Platinum Studios, scifi.com, DC and Marvel. By June, he was offered the post of Managing Editor at Weekly World News where he helped transition the newspaper from being produced jointly in Florida and New York to just NYC.

When the paper folded in August 2007, he resumed his freelance career which continues to this date.  Along the way, he helped revitalize Famous Monsters of Filmland and served as News Editor at ComicMix from August through December 2008.

He is a member of the Science Fiction Writers of America and theInternational Association of Media Tie-In Writers.  He served on the final Nebula Short Fiction Jury.

George Lucas in Love is an independent, live action, parodical short film that started attracting notice in June 1999 when it was passed around Hollywood offices as a filmmaker's "calling card". The film was directed by Joe Nussbaum, a University of Southern California graduate.

In the film, George Lucas is a USC college student in 1967, and he's suffering from writer's block as he tries to write a movie about a young space farmer with a bad crop of "space wheat". Everywhere he goes, viewers see classmates and teachers that either resemble, or will influence the creation of, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader, Han Solo, Chewbacca, Jabba the Hutt, R2-D2, and C-3PO. Lucas is surrounded by inspiration, but he sees nothing. Not even his advisor, who looks and speaks suspiciously like Yoda, is able to help him.

Eventually, young Lucas meets his muse, a young woman (with a very unusual hairdo) named Marion who is "kind of leading a student rebellion". After they meet, everything falls into place for Lucas, as she urges him to "write what you know." His writer's block dissipates and he quickly finishes his masterpiece. However, his shot at romance with the girl is blown when he discovers she's his sister. In a post-credits scene, a depressed Lucas gets a new idea when his neighbor introduces Lucas to his new pet... a duck named Howard.

Joe Nussbaum is an American film director. A graduate of the University of Southern California, he got his break into the movie industry by passing around Hollywood offices his short film George Lucas in Love. The success of the film eventually got him a deal with Dreamworks, and he has since directed films such as the 2004 production Sleepover, the 2006 film American Pie Presents: The Naked Mile and the 2007 film Sydney White starring Amanda Bynes. His latest project was the Walt Disney Pictures film Prom, starring Aimee Teegarden and Nicholas Braun. He currently is working at MTV writing for and occasionally directing “Awkward."

Joe grew up in Saint Louis Park, Minnesota—a suburb of Minneapolis—through junior high school. At the age of twelve he received a camcorder and proceeded to write and make films without an editing machine. When he started high school the family moved to Brighton, New York—a suburb of Rochester. While in high school, he turned the morning announcements into a closed circuit television program. He also acted in high school plays and one at Nazareth College.

His parents are Daniel II, a retired developmental pediatrician and Alice née Rosenthal, a Jewish educator and internationally known Judaic needlework designer. His paternal grandfather was born in Germany. His maternal grandfather and paternal grandmother were born in Ukraine. His maternal grandmother's family probably came from northeastern Europe, but they have lost all their immigration data.

As a youth, Joe was active in haBonim, the labor Zionist youth movement. He spent many summers at their Camp Tavor in Three Rivers, Michigan, and a year on Kibbutz Urim in Israel.

Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurrence.  It didn't happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this.  Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.  Take a moment to comment here or by writing john@chronicrift.com.

In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome.

"Ethics" - A Russian satellite comes crashing down in upstate New York.  Its contents hold a special interest to the members of the Dome.  A paranormal with electrical manipulation abilities was on board the satellite, sleeping in a cryogenic state for over thirty years.  The crew must find him before he is found by the U.S. government or the Russian Mafia.  In addition, they have to come to terms with their trust of a new administrator who appears very mysterious to them.

Cast

Andrea K. Lipinski, Orenthal V. Hawkins, Toni- Marie Farrell, John S. Drew, Keith R.A. DeCandido,

Jordan Rivers, Judith Furnari, David Alexander McDonald, Jeremy Brown and Susan Drew

This time the Case File opens for actor and musician Robbie Rist.  Robbie talks with John and Paul about his career, his love of music, and his voiceover work.  He speaks fondly of working with Lindsay Wagner in The Bionic Woman, comments on "The Cousin Oliver" factor, and says why Doc McStuffins is one of the best gigs he's ever worked on.
 
NOTE: This interview took place in early 2013.  Robbie speaks of his parents and their influence on his life, in particular, his music.  Robbie's father recently passed away.  We extend our condolences to Robbie and his family.

Comment on the episode here or write abionicpodcast@gmail.com or better still use the "Send Voicemail" tab on the left of the page to leave a message via your computer.  Take a moment to rate the episode by using our star system at the bottom of this entry.



Robbie Rist was born and raised in California.  He knew at an early age that he wanted to act and was allowed to by his supportive parents provided he never lost sight of who he was.  His parents also developed a love of music in Robbie that continues to this day.

As a child actor, Robbie appeared in numerous television shows - The Brady Bunch, The Bionic Woman, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Galactica 1980 and many more.  His angelic looks also carried with it a little devil on the side that he played to great advantage in many of his roles.

As Robbie got older, he continued to work in television and branched out into the world of voice acting.  He was the voice of the Michaelangelo in the orginal Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies.   He has lent his vocal talents to many animated series and features as well as video games such as Final Fantasy and Zach Bell.  He is currently performing as the voice of "Stuffy" in the highly popular Disney animated series Doc McStuffins.

Robbie's music career is as vast and varied as his acting career.  He has performed as the lead singer, guitarist, bassist and/or drummer for several Los Angeles rock bands, including Wonderboy, The Andersons (band), Cockeyed Ghost, Nice Guy Eddie, and Steve Barton and the Oblivion Click. The list of west coast pop bands Rist has performed with numbers is in the hundreds. He divides his time between film and music production, performing with Los Angeles alt-country band KingsizeMaybe and rock band Jeff Caudill & The Goodtimes Band (with Jeff Caudill of Orange County punk band Gameface and Michael "Popeye" Vogelsang of Orange County punk band Farside). Robbie has also produced a number of records for bands, including Suzy & Los Quattro, Backline, Ginger Britt and the Mighty, Jeff Caudill, Steve Barton and the Oblivion Click, Nice Guy Eddie, Kingsizemaybe and The Mockers. Rist produced the Rubinoos album Automatic Toaster and played drums on that album. He currently is the drummer for Your Favorite Trainwreck.

Robbie also hosts a podcast called The Spoon, "Join hosts Robbie Rist, Chris Jackson, and Thom Bowers, in their quest to understand the wide world around them and the insane people who populate it. Jumping through conversational hyperlinks like a trio of cats playing with a laser pointer, their mission is to separate the stuff from the stuff while providing a generous dose of broadcast irritainment."

Jim Arrowood's Interview with Nicholas Eftimiades (Jim's SciFi Blog)

I first learned about Edward Of Planet Earth and the author Nicholas Eftimiades by listening to an interview on the Scifi Diner Podcast. The idea intrigued me, so I went to Amazon.com and downloaded for my Kindle and began reading. I enjoyed the story and posted about it on this blog.

Nick was very appreciative that I would review his book on this blog and we began our on-line friendship. A few weeks ago, I contacted Nick to see if he might be interested in an interview. He was more than happy to accommodate me, so here it is. We talked about Edward and his two other non-fiction books on Chinese intelligence, and on how we Americans are viewed by people in other countries. But the discussion was not just limited to books, we also discussed the future implications of the evolution of our technology.

Those who are interested in learning more about Nicks Books can visit anywhere books are sold on-line. He can also be found on-line on his blog. Recently, he posted an article on his blog that outlines the intelligence implications of the Battle of Yavin in Star Wars. This was an interesting analytical look at Star Wars and a fun read. We also visited about The Federation of Galaxy Explorers, a non-profit organization intended to promote interest in space exploration in school aged children and young adults.

The Chronic Rift Network is thrilled to be able to have the comedy stylings of Dan Lackaye and Travis Searle on our network. The voyage of radio genius continues with a new episode.  Starting out as The Pirate Ship in the 90s, the boys charted the rough waters of the early days of the Internet and managed to deliver comedy gold week after week.  They were one of the inspirations for The Chronic Rift becoming a podcast.  Last fall, Dan & Travis reunited with a new podcast, bringing back many of the elements of the original Pirate Ship, and John has been on their case to join the network ever since.

The journey continues through the new Cosmos TV show, prog rock pride is looked at in "Rush to Judgment", and a discussion on least popular baby names are all here in addition to Travis with the news and another round of Impossible Travia.  It's a new Dan & Travis Show. Check out all the fun of past episode by visiting them on the web.

We’re off to the village of Roarton, Lancashire, setting for the BBC3 zombie television series IN THE FLESH! Created and written by Dominic Mitchell and now entering its second year, this show offers a truly fresh (if such a word can be used for zom…sorry Amy, the “Redeemed!”) take on the genre. Kieren Walker is one of many that inexplicably rose from the grave seeking the brains of the living, and now thanks to a special medication he has regained his former personality and rejoined his family along with many other PDS (Partially Deceased Syndrome) sufferers. But in a world struggling to integrate these “Rotters” back into society – and wondering if they  even should – the living and the undead alike walk the Earth seeking answers amid a new reality of discrimination, hatred, and fear. The more things change…

"Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar" starred Bob Bailey as "the man with the action-packed expense account."  A freelance insurance investigator, Dollar was called in to investigate burglaries and suspicious deaths. If he could recover the item or solve a murder, the insurance company might not have to pay off.  In exchange, Dollar got a commission, and, of course, his expenses reimbursed.  The show shifted from a weekly half-hour to 15 minutes five days a week.  This time host Kevin Lauderdale presents all five episodes of one of Dollar's most unusual cases.

Keith gets the opportunity to sit on the other side of the Chronic Rift table as a guest.  His latest Star Trek work, The Klingon Art of War has just been released and he sits with John to discuss the development and writing of the book.  Take a listen as Keith explains all including what is happening with his Dragon Precinct series on a new Spotlight episode.

Pick up a copy of The Klingon Art of War via our Amazon store.  In doing so, you not only support Keith and show the power that be at Simon and Schuster that you wish more Trek literature by Keith, but you also support the podcast as well.  Thank you.

International best-selling author Keith R.A. DeCandido was born, raised, educated, and still lives in the Bronx. His Mom and Dad fed him a steady diet of Robert A. Heinlein, Ursula K. Le Guin, J.R.R. Tolkien, and P.G. Wodehouse, which corrupted him for life -- not only instilling in him a great love of science fiction, fantasy, and silly British humor, but also likely being responsible for his pretentious insistence on using both his middle initials all the time.

Keith has published over thirty novels, most of them in the realm of media tie-ins. The majority of his work has appeared in the worlds of Star Trek: Keith has written novels, novellas, comic books, short stories, and eBooks, and also edited several anthologies that cover all five TV shows as well as several prose-only series -- one of which, the Corps of Engineers eBook series, he co-developed. Several of his Trek novels have hit the USA Today best-seller list, and received critical acclaim from all over the map, both online and in print. Keith edited the monthly Star Trek eBook line from 2001 until the line came to an end in 2008.

He has also written in the worlds of Blizzard Games, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Command and Conquer, CSI, Doctor Who, Farscape, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Marvel Comics, Supernatural, Young Hercules, and many more.

In 2004, Dragon Precinct, Keith's first non-tie-in novel, was published. It's a police procedural in a standard elves/dwarves/magic fantasy setting -- picture Law & Order meets Lord of the Rings. Stories in the same setting have appeared in the anthologies Murder by Magic, Hear Them Roar, Bad-Ass Faeries, and Pandora's Closet.

Keith's editorial career started in college -- serving on Fordham University's award-winning alternative newspaper, called, simply, the paper -- and includes a stint at Library Journal magazine and five years as an editor for the late Byron Preiss and his various companies (Byron Preiss Visual Publications, Byron Preiss Multimedia, BP Books, and ibooks inc.). Among his accomplishments in the latter job were editing a highly successful line of novels based on Marvel Comics's super heroes and helping bring Alfred Bester back into print.

From 1998-2006, Keith owned and operated the company Albé-Shiloh Inc., a provider of writing and editing services. ASI's most visible project was the Nebula Award-nominated anthology of original novelettes called Imaginings: An Anthology of Long Short Fiction. Keith has edited over a dozen anthologies since 1995, from the acclaimed OtherWere: Stories of Transformation in 1996 to the Star Trek anthologies Tales of the Dominion War and Tales from the Captain's Table in 2004-2005 to Doctor Who: Short Trips: The Quality of Leadership in 2008.

For four glorious years, Keith worked on The Chronic Rift, a New York City public access talk show on SF, fantasy, comics, gaming, and other genre issues. Working with his best friend, Executive Producer and Director John S. Drew, Keith was cohost and Producer of the Rift, doing 100 half-hour episodes that aired in New York from 1990-1994.

Keith is a professional musician, currently the percussionist for the parody band the Boogie Knights. He's played on five CDs. From 1996-2000, he was with the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, and besides his gigs with the Knights, he has been occasionally active in New York City clubs, backing up the Randy Bandits, Steve Rosenhaus, and the late David Honigsberg.

Besides all this, Keith is a student of Kenshikai karate (a brown belt, as of February 2008), and an amateur actor and voiceover actor (you can hear his work on some of the audio dramas produced and directed by his erstwhile Chronic Rift cohort John S. Drew).

Keith R.A. DeCandido was born and raised in New York City to a family of librarians. He has written over two dozen novels, as well as short stories, nonfiction, eBooks, and comic books, most of them in various media universes, among them Star Trek, World of Warcraft, Starcraft, Marvel Comics, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Serenity, Resident Evil, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, Farscape, Xena, and Doctor Who. His original novel Dragon Precinct was published in 2004, and he's also edited several anthologies, among them the award-nominated Imaginings and two Star Trek anthologies. Keith is also a musician, having played percussion for the bands the Don't Quit Your Day Job Players, the Boogie Knights, and the Randy Bandits, as well as several solo acts.

Klingon Art of War (Star Trek)

Passed down from the time of Kahless, ten precepts have shaped Klingon culture and indoctrinated Klingons in the Way of the Warrior. With this new translation, people from all walks of life—and all worlds—can harness the ancient Klingon wisdom and learn to embody courage, discipline, and honor.

• Choose your enemies well.

• Strike quickly or strike not.

• Always face your enemy.

• Seek adversity.

Pat Murphy

Pat Murphy has won numerous awards for her thoughtful, literary science fiction and fantasy writing, including two Nebula Awards, the Philip K. Dick Award, the World Fantasy Award, the Seiun Award, and the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award. She has published eight novels and many short stories. Her works include Rachel in Love; The Falling Woman; The City, Not Long After; Nadya; and Adventures in Time and Space with Max Merriwell, a novel that Publishers Weekly called the “cerebral equivalent of a roller-coaster ride.” Her children’s novel, The Wild Girls, received a Christopher Award in 2008. In addition to writing fiction, Pat writes about science for children and adults.

 

The Falling Woman

Winner of the Nebula Award: An archaeologist with a strange power risks death to unlock the secret of the Mayans When night falls over the Yucatan, the archaeologists lay down their tools. But while her colleagues relax, Elizabeth Butler searches for shadows. A famous scientist with a reputation for eccentricity, she carries a strange secret. Where others see nothing but dirt and bones and fragments of pottery, Elizabeth sees shades of the men and women who walked this ground thousands of years before. She can speak to the past—and the past is beginning to speak back. As Elizabeth communes with ghosts, the daughter she abandoned flies to Mexico hoping for a reunion. She finds a mother embroiled in the supernatural, on a quest for the true reason for the Mayans’ disappearance. To dig up the truth, the archaeologist who talks to the dead must learn a far more difficult skill: speaking to her daughter.

Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurrence.  It didn't happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this.  Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.  Take a moment to comment here or by writing john@chronicrift.com.

In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome.

"Headgames" - Jared is the latest case study for the researchers of The Dome.  There is a major concern as his abilities are similar to the late Dr. Sullivan.  Meanwhile, Anne and Helen are combing through the late doctor's papers and discover some shocking details about his plans for world domination.

Think of this episode as a .5 episode.  It's a shorter story that acts as a bridge between the full length dramas in the series.

Cast

Andrea K. Lipinski, Orenthal V. Hawkins, John S. Drew, Susan Drew, Anna Ackley and Edd Drew

Written by John S. Drew

Produced and Drected by John S. Drew

Theme music and episode score by Lenny Ackley

Joining John to talk about King Tut and the actor who portrayed him Victor Buono, is Gotham City 14 Miles editor, Jim Beard.

A native of Toledo, Ohio, Jim Beard was introduced to comic books at an early age by his father, who passed on to him a love for the medium and the pulp characters who preceded it. After decades of reading, collecting and dissecting comics, Jim became a published writer when he sold a story to DC Comics in 2002. Since that time he's written official Star Wars and Ghostbusters comic stories and contributed articles and essays to several volumes of comic book history.

His prose work includes GOTHAM CITY 14 MILES, a book of essays on the 1966 Batman TV series; SGT. JANUS, SPIRIT-BREAKER, a collection of pulp ghost stories featuring an Edwardian occult detective; MONSTER EARTH, a giant monster anthology; and CAPTAIN ACTION: RIDDLE OF THE GLOWING MEN, the first pulp prose novel based on the classic 1960s action figure.

Currently, Jim provides regular content for Marvel.com, the official Marvel Comics website, and is a regular columnist for Toledo Free Press.

A powerful female force took down Captain America this weekend at the box office.  But it wasn't the Black Widow.  It wasn't even Wonder Woman.  It was The Other Woman and the movie managed to score the top spot despite the near universal panning of the film by critics.  Now, there's a new hero waiting in the wings ready to take The Other Woman on.  But does the web-slinger in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 have what it takes to take down this unusual movie?  Michael Falkner shares the trailer for the movie as well as new TV-on-DVD releases and more on a new Weekly Podioplex.

Miles and Scott had the pleasure of chatting with Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris.

What do you get when you mix put a little League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, a little Van Helsing and a little Warehouse 13?  You get the award winning Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences.   To tell us about that world and how we can get a hold of some of this scifi/fantasy goodness are the authors, husband and wife team, Tee Morris and Pip Ballantine.

Tee Morris began his writing career with his 2002 historical epic fantasy, MOREVI The Chronicles of Rafe & Askana. In 2005 Tee took MOREVI into the then-unknown podosphere, making his novel the first book podcast in its entirety. That experience led to the founding of Podiobooks.com and collaborating with Evo Terra and Chuck Tomasi on Podcasting for Dummies and its follow-up, Expert Podcasting Practices for Dummies. He won acclaim and accolades for his cross-genre fantasy-detective Billibub Baddings Mysteries, the podcast of The Case of the Singing Sword winning him the 2008 Parsec Award for Best Audio Drama.

Along with those titles, Tee has written articles and short stories for BenBella Books’s Farscape Forever: Sex, Drugs, and Killer Muppets, the podcast anthology VOICES: New Media Fiction, BenBella Books’ So Say We All: Collected Thoughts and Opinions of Battlestar Galactica, and Dragon Moon Press’ Podthology: The Pod Complex. Tee bought all these skills to the award-winning Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series which he wrote with his wife, Pip Ballantine. When he is not writing, Tee enjoys life in Virginia alongside Philippa Ballantine, his daughter, and three cats.

Philippa (Pip) Ballantine Born in Wellington, New Zealand, Philippa has always had her head in a book. For this she blames her father who thought Lord of the Rings was suitable bedtime reading for an eight year old. At the age of thirteen she began writing fantasy stories for herself.

She first earned a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Political Science and then a Bachelor of Applied Science in Library and Information Science. So soon enough she found herself working in the magical world of libraries where she stayed for over a decade Her first professional sale was in 1997, and since then she has gone on to produce mostly novel length fiction. In 2006 she became New Zealand’s first podcast novelist, and she has voiced and produced Weaver’s Web, Chasing the Bard, Weather Child and Digital Magic as podiobooks.

Her podcasts have been short listed for the Parsec Awards, and won a Sir Julius Vogel award. Philippa is the author of the Books of the Order series with Ace- Geist and Spectyr and Wrayth out now, and Harbinger to follow.

She is also the co-author of the Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences series with Tee Morris. Phoenix Rising debuted in May 2011 and The Janus Affair came out in May 2012. She also has the Shifted World series with Pyr Books, with the first book Hunter and Fox out now. When not writing or podcasting, Philippa loves reading, gardening, and whenever possible traveling. With her husband, Tee and her daughter, she is looked after by a mighty clowder of three cats.

A new Case File focuses on actor, voiceover artist, and professional whistler Guerin Barry.  Guerin talks about his role on The Bionic Woman as the voice of the Alex 7000 computer in the episode, "Doomsday is Tomorrow".  In addition, he talks about his time with the group Sha Na Na, his appearances in various movies and television shows, his career as a professional whistler, plus a whole lot more.

Comment on the episode here or write abionicpodcast@gmail.com.



Guerin Barry was born in Manhattan and raised in Sunnyside Queens. He went Brooklyn Technical High School and then attended Pratt Institute for architecture. But left to go to work at a radio station in Vermont. From there, he went to Boston to study acting at the Leland Powers School of Radio, Television, and Theatre. By the time he finished acting school he was married and had a son and became a film editor for prominent Boston TV news station, WBZ. His TV work continued in New York as a producer and director for six years before he returned to acting and studied with Milton Katselas while working at an advertising agency. He ultimately moved to Los Angeles in the summer of 1975 to pursue acting full-time.

Stage work led to work in commercials (he famously embodied the character of the Mercury Grand Marquis) and supporting roles in movies and guest-starring roles in television (Quincy, Simon & Simon, Step by Step), including the soft-soaked voice of "Alex 7000," the Master Computer who gives who threatens to destroy the world unless Jaime Sommers can stop him in the sensational Bionic Woman two-parter, "Doomsday Is Tomorrow." Guerin's unique voice talent also gave life to the original Dr. Theopolis in the iconic Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. He was even up for the voice of K.I.T.T. in Knight Rider but lost to William Daniels. He was also the unseen voice of the "Salem Strangler" on the popular daytime soap, Days of Our Lives.

In the 80s, Guerin started a 50s band and played locally for six years, which led to an additional four years touring the globe with the acclaimed 50s rock and roll group, Sha Na Na. When he returned to Hollywood, he focused heavily on voiceover work. He's recorded a dozen audio books, and he's also found himself in the peculiar field of talking toys, for which he is the voice of thousands. Recognized as a "Professional Whistler," Guerin has whistled for many composers of TV, documentary and feature film music, promo music, music libraries and pop recordings. He also whistles live with jazz musicians. He is "On Pitch and On Time." He has whistled for the TV series, LA Law, episode titled "Whistle Stop." He is the only polyphonic whistler in the world, capable of producing two, specific and different notes at the same time.

Guerin's voice can also be heard in the popular video games, War of Warcraft and Starcraft. He's appeared in Reeve Carney's music video for "Love Me, Chase Me." And he's currently the deep bass voice of the Doo-Wop group, Dukes of DooWop.

Over five years ago, John created an audio drama series with the intention of making it a regular occurance.  It didn't happen, but now John is almost done with his grad school work and can devote his time more to a project such as this.  Because of that, he is releasing the first five episodes to get everyone on board with the story.  Take a moment to comment here or by writing john@chronicrift.com.

In 1977, the United States government determined that one in every ten million Americans was gifted with a paranormal ability. It immediately set up a commission to look into the growing phenomenon. It was decided that a special, top-secret research facility was needed to study the matter further. Today, in a world where the paranormal is normal, the unexpected happens within the walls of The Dome.

"Avatar" - A tragic accident inside the walls of The Dome leads to a a visit by a senator with many questions.  Meanwhile, a ghostly image that has been moving through the corridors of the complex visits the widow of one of the victims of the accident with news of what really happens in the examination rooms of The Dome.

All roads lead to Terminus in the savage Season 4 finale of THE WALKING DEAD, “A!” It’s our weekly bite-sized post-mortem with Dr. Arnold T. Blumberg (DOC OF THE DEAD; ZOMBIEMANIA; “Zombies in Popular Media” at the University of Baltimore; world renowned zombie expert). Rick, Carl, and Michonne reunite with Daryl and make it to the end of the train tracks, but not before a shocking confrontation leads Rick to embrace his darkest, most brutal side. And he’ll need it where they’re going…Terminus looms ahead.

Find out what was good, what wasn’t so good, and what sort of grade the Doctor thinks the episode deserves. With G2V Podcast producer and co-host Scott Woodard!

SPECIAL NOTE: Rest assured the Doctor WILL go on! We’ll be continuing to discuss all things WALKING DEAD, zombie, and much more, with interviews, reviews, and commentary until the series returns to our screens with the Season Five premiere this October! Stick with us because the best (or worst, if you think in apocalyptic terms) is yet to come!

Show Music: “Bitter Pill” (feat. Vosmoy) by Still Pluto.

The Chronic Rift Network is thrilled to be able to have the comedy stylings of Dan Lackaye and Travis Searle on our network. The voyage of radio genius continues with a new episode.  Starting out as The Pirate Ship in the 90s, the boys charted the rough waters of the early days of the Internet and managed to deliver comedy gold week after week.  They were one of the inspirations for The Chronic Rift becoming a podcast.  Last fall, Dan & Travis reunited with a new podcast, bringing back many of the elements of the original Pirate Ship, and John has been on their case to join the network ever since.

As promised, Dan relates his story of the paranormal to his home and the two discuss the latest episode of Cosmos.  Plus, Old Man Gabe returns with a look at the NCAA brackets and since Spring is in the air, he talks baseball as well.  All this, plus Travis with the news you need to know, on a new The Dan & Travis Show. Check out all the fun of past episode by visiting them on the web.
