    Weird Science DC Comics Podcast Ep 57: Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!

    It was a down week for books and after getting yelled out all week about review scores, Jim was pretty depressed.  That means one thing…The Mobile Leprechaun.  Yes, nothing brings a smile to Jim and Eric’s face quicker than a little, “Who Else Seen Da Leprechaun Say Yeah!”  It carries them through this long ass episode where they break down all the books, talk DC Comics news, get yelled at in the listener mail and try to have a good time.  Enjoy!

          113 Kung Fu Jedi Wizards!

          Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!
          It’s the end of the month and I’ve got so much content to share with you this week that I’m definitely going out of January with a high note!
          First we’ll visit the Neverland Trailer Park with Pixie Heather to talk about some of the trailers we saw as we went out to see the new Dreamworks production, Kung Fu Panda 3. And of course since we saw that movie, you can expect a review of it as well! Did this movie live up to the fun of the previous films?
          Next up I wanted to weigh in on some various Star Wars theories I’ve been hearing about. There have been great discussions on these topics by the Techno Retro Dads and the D-Cast. In fact, I’m working with Dale from the D-Cast to make a fun episode for you next week, and hopefully introduce you to a new favorite Disney Podcast. They are very similar to me and I’m looking forward to talking with them!
          We’ll dive into some feedback and listener appreciation before sharing a great conversation with Joel from DuctTuff. Lost Boy Jesse is a friend of his, and Joel has created some really cool items for sale that I think you’ll want! Comic book wallets! He also has created a really cool game!

          And finally I get to share with you some audio of the Harry Potter Film Celebration from the Universal Orlando Theme Park. This is taken from a live stream they’ve had on their YouTube channel where they had some very special guests. Make sure you visit their channel and take a look at the video if you are a Harry Potter fan!

              112 Aladdin Journeys to the Stars

              Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!
              It took over a month, but CD Baby finally delivered on my purchase of Tom Ameen’s Journey to the Stars! I’ve taken a few listens to this album and I now present to you my review of this latest work from pianist Tom Ameen.
              It’s time for another trip to the Neverland Trailer Park to take a quick look at DC’s Suicide Squad. There is some buzz behind this movie, but is it enough to get me excited?
              And finally, Lost Boy Eric will take us into the Hyperion Theater for a viewing of Aladdin, The Musical Spectacular. This show closed forever on January 10, but the memories of those that viewed it will live on forever. I hope this last listen brings back all the fun you have had viewing the show, or hearing it on other podcasts.
              Oh, and it looks like I lost a bet….so enjoy my humiliation.

                            110 He-Man and The Fall of Grayskull

                            Welcome back to the Neverland Podcast!
                            Fan films, they’ve gone from kids making movies with their parents camcorder to full on digital productions shared across the internet. Sometimes they are funny, sometimes they have such great production value that it seems a full studio produced the film.
                            With today’s modern world of Kickstarter projects, even the most humble film makers may see their dreams of intellectual property magic come true.
                            Such is the case with our returning guest, Daniel Benedict from Red Serial Films!! We first met him on episode 72, and since then he’s had a fun ride with his Master of the Universe fan film, The Fall of Grayskull!
                            Daniel is here to talk about his adventures in the past year and discuss making fan films. It was a fun conversation, and we’re sure you’ll enjoy this journey into imagination. We’ll also mention another Master of the Universe fan film trilogy by Jon Carroll
                            Fan films are yet another wonder that was launched for the love of Star Wars and has expanded to include characters from the Marvel Universe. The perfect bit of fun for the new worlds of Disney fandom!
