Podcasts, Podcasts & More Podcasts

Picture a Day in May #12
Today I was up early watching the next four episodes of MASH that we were planning on recording podcasts for today. At 11am I got online with my pals Meds and Al and we recorded four new episodes of our MASH 4077 Podcast. It's been a few months since we did our last recordings but we picked up right were we left off. The chemistry between the three of us can't be denied.

I registered My Gimpy Life Podcast with itunes as it can take them up to a week for them to approve the feed. Once that is done I just have to wait until they start releasing webisodes.

After my MASH recordings I headed out to North Hollywood were Jes went this morning for today's shoot for My Gimpy Life. Watched them shoot some very funny scenes as well as interviewing some great guest stars for the show. Again I can't go into detail but stay tune for My Gimpy Life CompanionCasts and you'll hear all the fun we had shooting these episodes. I was also pulled in to be an extra in a few scenes.. will see if I make the cut.

After the shoot both Jes and I were exhausted but hungry so we sent to Chilli's on our way home and grabbed some dinner. By the time we got home it was 9pm and our call time for tomorrow was 6:30am which meant we had to leave my house by 5am. So we started to get ready for bed. I remembered that my friends Anne and Nicki were staying at my place tonight as well, they were also doing the shoot tomorrow. There was no way I was going to wait up for them, as they were at a concert and wouldn't get to my place until after 11pm. I texted them and left the front door open and went to bed, quickly falling asleep.

Hanging with my Bestie

Picture a Day in May #11
Today I woke up with a smile on my face when I realized that my best friend Josh was staying over and that we had half a day to just hang out and do nothing. We thought about going hiking at Vasquez but instead we sat out on the patio, listening to music (and singing along) and gazing out at the beautiful views... it was very relaxing. We talked and laughed and had a great time. Around 3 we began the trek back to Josh's place (he lives about an hour and a half away). We stopped by Chili's and grabbed some lunch before hitting the road. Well four hours later I was back home, traffic was HORRIBLE!!! Took two hours to get there, which meant I got Josh home by 6:20pm and he was suppose to be at work at 6:15pm.. so he was late (luckily he called ahead and there was no punishment). When I got home I was exhausted, being stuck in traffic for four hours straight in draining. But with that said I would have done it all again to hang out with my bestie.

Another great friend of mine Jes was crashing at my place tonight as she is going to be an extra tomorrow on my friend Teal's new webseries My Gimpy Life. I too will be on set but getting interviews for the companioncast that I'm doing for the show.

She got to my house a bit later then she expected, but when she got here we said hello and chatted for a bit before calling it a night. Another fun filled day with friends.. I just love my friends.

Family, Friends & Pirates.. Oh My!!

Picture a Day in May # 10
It's been about three weeks since I've seen my family. I normally got down there ever few weeks but since gas prices are so crazy I cut it back and now go down every three weeks. Anyways had a great time visiting my niece and nephew.. they are both getting so big. As well as visiting my Dad, Brother and Sister-in-law. Had lunch with my pops and got this fortune cookie message.. hope it's true (it became my 10th pic for May).

When I'm down here I like to check in with my buddy Josh as he lives not too far away from the family. He was having dinner with his family but was available after 8pm. I suggested that I pick him up and go back to my place and we could hang out the rest of the night and then spend most of the day tomorrow together since he didn't have to be at work until 6pm. He liked the idea and that became my plan. Got back to my place fairly late, we watched Cutthroat Island (a Geena Davis movie from the 90's) that Josh had never seen and had a few bottles of wine. It was a great way to end the day with wine, pirates and great company.

New Friends

Picture a Day in May #9
Today I had lunch with a friend that I've known for almost six or so years but never have meet in person. His name is Sebastian and we meet on the Treks in Sci Fi forums. At the time when we meet he was living in London and a few years later in northern California, but in 2009 he moved to Burbank and we talked about hanging out about every few months but it never happened. Finally a few days ago we were chatting on facebook and finally made plans to actually meet up in person for lunch.

I was excited to finally meet him as we have been friends for so long. We meet at BJ's restaurant out in Valencia. It was an instant friendship, maybe it's because we've known each other online for so long but hanging out with Sebastian was like we've known each other forever. Our two hour lunch turned into walking around the mall and chatting for hours on end.

Sebastian's girlfriend finally called and he mentioned that we were still hanging out so she said she was going to join us. I suggested that we all just go to my place and we could hang out in peace (the mall was getting louder and louder with kids). We grabbed a pizza on our way home for dinner and meet up with Amanda at my place. We sat out on the back porch for a hours chatting and admiring the stars as it started to get dark as we were sitting out there.

I had planned to edited my next Alien Nation podcast but what was suppose to be a two hour lunch turned into a nine hour hang out session and it was a blast. We made sure when we said goodbye that another few year wouldn't pass before we hung out again.

Hurray for the Gays!!!!!

Today President Obama threw his support behind "Gay Marriages". He went on ABC news and made the announcement. I don't care if he did it for political reasons or to cause controversy.. the fact is for the first time the United States of America's president went on record in support of Equal rights and gay marriages.. and that's HUGE!!! So thank you Mr. President, It's a very slow process but one day we will all be treated equally... I just hope to be alive to see that day.

Geekyfanboy Productions

  I've been wanting to create a new logo for my podcasting company Geekyfanboy Productions but I haven 't been able to come up with anything cool yet. I did make this banner so I can add it to things but if anyone has any ideas of a cool logo that you think would fit my company name let me know.

Hanging with Friends

Picture a Day in May #8
Today I had the pleasure of not only spending time with one of my best friends but I got to spend time with two of them. It started off with Will, I headed down to his place to go out to lunch and to hang out at his place. We went to his really good BBQ place out in Burbank for lunch and then back to his place where we just hung out and played some Mass Effect 3 (well Will played and I'd give him suggestions on what to do next). I also got to see his recording studio which inspired my Picture of the Day in May. I also helped clean up his bedroom. :) Had a great time just hanging.. not do much just enjoying ones company.

From Wills I headed over to Robert's place in LA. Our past few get together we have done dinner and Firefly so we continued with this tradition. Instead of pizza this time I stopped by Taco Bell and picked us up some tacos and burritos. Got to his place ate dinner and watched three more episodes of Firefly. Safe, Our Mrs Reynolds and Jaynestown. Again like Will we just hung out watched some TV and chatted but had the best time. We've already schedule a day for next week were we will do this all over again... can't wait.

Got home around 11:30pm and went to bed.. a great day just hanging with my besties.

SDCC & Alien Nation

After months of waiting they finally opened up Professional registration for San Diego Comic Con. This is months later then they have done in the past but the second it was open I jumped on and got my four tickets... whew!!!

My brother stopped by today to record a few more episodes of our Alien Nation Podcast. The next episode is due on the 10th which is only a few days away. Each time we record I'm amazed at how easily we interact. I mean I know were brothers but podcasting with him is so easy and very fun.

<-- While my brother was here I took my seventh picture a day in May

Spent the last few hours of the day playing Minecraft :)

On Set of My Gimpy Life

Today I had to be on set at 11am on my friend Teal Sherer's new webseries My Gimpy Life. I am doing their official podcast / companioncast for the series as well as being an extra on set today. Of course I can't say much about what was shot but I read the entire series script and it's going to be fantastic. I got some great interviews in and did mange to walk by the camera a few times while they were filming.

The Geek Mob was represented, Kim, Jen, Nicki, Anthony,  Jennifer and I were all there.

One of the highlights of the day was getting to meet and interviewing Steven Dengler (CEO & Co-Founder at He truly is one of the nicest guys I have ever met.

After the shoot a few of us (Kim, Jen, Nicki, Teresa & new friend Eric) from the set went out to Denny's for a late dinner. My bestie Robert actually joined us as well though he was not with us on set. We had a great time reminiscing about out day. Got home in the wee hours of the night.. another fantastic day.

Oh yeah.. while I set I took my sixth Picture of a Day in May.. this time my friend Teal joined me. -->
