Description

Released every Monday at 5:00am (Saturdays with a paid subscription).

Seanorama is a father and husband, and all around Geek. Todd FastFretFingers is his brother. Together, they are the SeanGeek Podcast.

The podcast is unrehearsed, unedited and raw. Just like real life is supposed to be. Our hosts discuss the geeky side of music, comics, movies, video games, and RPG games, usually while on the road.

Seanorama and FastFretFinger welcome magician and comedian Clayton T Stewart to the podcast to talk about the late Harry Houdini. They break away the myth of the master illusionist and escape artist and cover: influence on the wrestling and vaudeville beginnings, how heavy his immigrant status played into his show and his everyman superman mystique, the supernatural and trickery, his escapes and comparing them to wrestling finishers, how he died and his history with Spiritualists. The gang also talks about Corey Toews’ Meet The Geeks. #haircuts #facebooklivesucks @beaverdoes #magic #illusion #handcuffs #everyman #superman  #wrestling #vaudeville #escapeartist #illusionist #spiritualism #finishers #immigrant Clayton The Greathttps://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZKqaqoRGmtURSko8PL8h5Q Twitter @FunnyCTStewart on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook Meet The Geeks: http://mtgcomic.thecomicseries.com/ Website: www.seanmcginity.ca @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @fastfretfingers on Instagram @ToddGeeks Tech Talk on Facebook
Seanorama is On The Road! This is all about the Podcast Rant While Driving To Work. Rant suffered some crap at his job so we are talking about it here and now, and analyzing his episode and a perspective on what we think happened with him. Some advice, some perspective, how to get past it, the importance of silliness, and drone mentality. His episode is here and I strongly recommend taking a listen first:https://www.stitcher.com/podcast/jay-recher/rant-while-driving-to-work/e/69381072 You can follow Rant over here on Twitter: @rantwhile   The new campaign, how it ties to past campaigns, the parallel nature of COVID and my book, and how the new book fits into the new game. We answer requests from players who want a new campaign out of me. Seanorama talks Keycon not happening this year, what it means and what about that year I boycotted the event and the reasons behind it. #ranting #corporate #silliness #dronementality @keycon #roleplaying #novelwriting #boycott #d20 #d20modern #writingcommunity #writers #bullies #victims Website: www.seanmcginity.ca @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook
Seanorama and FastFretFingers pit Van Halen’s 5150 album versus David Lee Roth’s Eat Em And Smile. The boys throw down, track by track, album versus album, talk about naked men on album covers, successful lead single releases, Eddie Van Halen spoon player extraordinaire, recording quality, Stevie Vai, cover songs, frou-frou songs, Todd’s covers are always better than the originals, New Brunswick translations of David Lee Roth songs, Live without Annette, Steve Vai’s sound, their favorite song on each, least favorite song on each, and they screw the math on the results. 5150 Full Album on YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8a8cutYP7fpFlxUlvr2igIAgJSpBXwNz Eat Em Smile Full album on YouTubehttps://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLAzsAApYRECoCFXLiBEbu2a3i4Oab2DZ0 #vanhalen #davidleeroth #vanhagar #5150 #eatemandsmile #music #chiak #shediac #bouctouche #stevevai #sammyhagar #eddievanhalen #tedtempleman #donnlandee #billysheehan #spoons #froufrou #covers #livewithoutannette #screwmath Website: www.seanmcginity.ca @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @fastfretfingers on Instagram @ToddGeeks Tech Talk on Facebook
Inspired by Aaron Virola’s wish to NOT see this movie that his daughter wanted to see, and by my own kids’ wanting to see it, we rented the film. But here is the trick: the trailers are misleading and hide what the movie is really about. If you are a musician and you hate the current wave of music forced on us by corporate media, this movie might be for you.

Seanorama and FastFretFingers talk Keycon 2020. They talk about the changes that have been made to make the Con better and safer. The talk about Music and Publishing and a bit on the story of the Lion Sleeps Tonight. Seanorama goes for gas and the bank (honestly). They talk Smartspeakers, algorithms, privacy laws and the future of advertising. The Podcast is not officially sponsored by @Wunderlist or @Shazam but we sure use it all the time. Wikipedia has a decent article on the whole story which you can check out here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lion_Sleeps_Tonight Soundcharts has a great article on Music and Publishing, much better than our limited knowledge on the subject.

Seanorama discusses his commitment to find new Podcasts to listen to and how he plans to do it. If you have a podcast and want a mention, send me yours and three episodes of your choice to listen to. I plan to listen to 2-3 new podcasts a week. The Traffic is particularly horrible in this episode. He also offers an editing update on his book: changes have happened to how and when he works. He discusses flow, establishing the setting, build-up, building intrigue and suspense. He also talks about the Twitter movement for and against editors and releasing first drafts. #podcasts #writing #WritingCommunity #egregious #intrigue #suspense #setting #flow #setting #firstdraft #editors @beaverdoes @witchpolicefm @gmbchomichuk Theme song by Todd McGinity Search SeanGeek Podcast on: Apple Podcasts; Google Podcasts; Spotify; Iheart Radio; TuneIN: Podbean; Castbox; Podcast.com Website: www.seanmcginity.ca @seangeekpodcast on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook @fastfretfingers on Instagram @ToddGeeks Tech Talk on Facebook
