JPG Podcast – Episode 22 – And Now His Podcast has Ended

New JPG Logo cover 600 x 600

Episode 22 has landed and it’s Game of Thrones related again as Adam is still playing too much Playstation again. It could be work related, but it sounds more adventurous if I pretend he does what he wants rather than acts like a responsible person.

Anyway, Charmaine joins me once again for the discussing of the first half of season three.

Music by Jez Aditore 

Discussion points:

- The Queen’s continued quest for power.

- Our love and hate relationship with Stannis. Is there a devil and an angel on his shoulders?

- How Stannis’ story changes from the book and TV series.

- Storm’s End and Dragon Stone (I get the castles mixed up sorry, but you’ll understand).

- I sussed out what Theon did to the two boys correctly.

- Littlefinger vs Varys.

- Dany vs slavery.

- End of episode music.

- There is never a good sword fight at the right time!

- Nitpicking at the introduction of new characters with significant actors.

 We quickly discuss a TV series that I’ve introduced to Charmaine (Deep Space Nine), the first five episodes to be exact. But also we touch on how it has aged as a series. It has been 20 years now.

 Then we get back to GoTh discussion with our stand out moments from the series.

- Finding out who the King beyond the wall is.

- The introduction of the White Walkers.

- Theon’s torture.

- Mormonts death.

- Margeemry and her relationship with Joffery.

- More female characters as the series progresses.

- Dragons and people’s lack of reaction to them.

You can find the show on iTunes here.

A Five Hour Back to the Future

This is the entire Back to the Future trilogy presented to you in one edited chronologically movie. The power of love for these three films have made me combine them all into one gigantic five hour spectacular. Hope you enjoy what could have been.

The hardest parts to edit were the “Enchantment Under the Sea dance” scenes. Both the first and second movie have some moments that are out of order. It isn’t realised watching each movie individually.

Scenes in particular are when George McFly is dancing alone before confronting Biff and when Lorraine kisses Marty. In this edit, these scenes and many others are integrated with the first movie taking precedence. The actor who stood in for the character of George McFly isn’t actually very good once you edit his parts. It’s best to keep the original scenes.

Otherwise the movie was very uncomplicated to edit. Enjoy!

Update: Pulled without a single view, that was quick. How is that when there are hundreds of other copyrighted content still on Youtube?

Honest Intentions.

Guy Fawkes is sometimes toasted as "the last man to enter Parliament with honest intentions". - Sharpe, J. A. (2005), Remember, Remember: A Cultural History of Guy Fawkes Day

Xi Jinping and Pro-Democracy

Xi Jinping’s image has been hilariously appropriated by Occupy Hong Kong protesters much to the confusion of Chinese mainlanders who are visiting Hong Kong and see their communist leader seemingly supporting the pro democracy protests.

Debate and Civility – Occupy Hong Kong

Something that doesn’t make headlines due to the lack of drama and level of civility are the many crowds that form in order to just discuss what is happening in relation to the protests.

Talks ranged from the communist’s approach to the movement, who is really in charge in Beijing, how well informed many mainland Chinese actually are about the protests in Hong Kong, the beginning of the occupy protests with first hand accounts of the firing of teargas and media’s misrepresentation of the events thus far.debate

‘Stay Strong’ from Captain America.

Saturday (1)

Andy Yung Wai-Yib or known by his protest name, ‘Captain America’ was arrested yesterday for pushing an anti-protester away with his shield.

Bailed out today for $100 HKD (£8) with his shield and protective gear confiscated. Captain America was back in Mong Kok brandishing a sign instead that said ‘Stay Strong’.

Captain America continued to show his support for protesters by rallying a cheerful crowd to his banner at the barricades in front of the police and anti-protesters.
