EPISODE 028 - A Super Sized Episode with Michael Murdock, viral filmmaker of The Binks Awakens, & Shane Turgeon, author of The Force In The Flesh

After a few weeks off, we are back.  -Remember when we used to be a weekly podcast?  We do too!  ---Blargh! :-/

This month brought some technical difficulties to show, which included a dying laptop for Tim, and the corruption of files for a show we recorded last week for Dan.  But, even with these troubles, we march on.  Do or do not, there is no try!

Because we have been gone for a few weeks, we have overcompensated with an double stuffed episode today.  That's right, today we have not one, but TWO great guests!

First up is Michael Murdock, the man who created the viral hit "Star Wars: The Binks Awakens".  This video is a re-iminagining of The Force Awakens trailer, but with a lot more Gungan!  We talk to Michael about all things Jar Jar, how he created the video, what it has been like to go viral, and we play a game we call "Jar Jar A Movie".

Our second guest is Shane Turgeon, the author of The Force In The Flesh, volumes I and II.  These art books explore the world of Star Wars body art with beautiful photographs and amazing stories.  We chat with Shawn about self publishing, the cross pollination of Star Wars and tattoos, and what it's like to work at a Star Wars Celebration.

Jason was away on assignment this week, so Dan and I mixed it up a little.  Instead of doing a rundown of this weeks news, we spend some time discussing the biggest news of last week, the release of the Star Wars themed Vanity Fair issue.

And that's pretty much it.  Thank you for your patience, and our apologies once again.
