Episode 341 – Robbing Hobbes Lead to Miniature Rubik Yo-Yos


Rob Kristjansson is back.

(0:53) You know that decal of that little kid taking a piss on the Ford, Chevy or “insert brand name here” company logo on the back window of people’s trucks was never legally licensed? That image is from the Calvin and Hobbes comic strip created by Bill Watterson. It was never approved, Watterson has never been paid, and companies continue to take advantage of the image to diminish someone else’s brand.

(16:01) We also discuss Canadian sitcoms Kim’s Convenience, Corner Gas, Trailer Park Boys, Schitt’s Creek and continuations of shows with animated follow ups.

(28:09) When we were younger, certain things trended hard in the age before the Internet. We cover some of these worldwide trends: Red Rose Tea miniatures, yo-yos, Rubik’s Cube, Hacky Sacks, and Super Mario.

(43:15) We do Podcast Introductions, our skit where we read your Podcast description in a character voice of our choosing. This week we do up Living Through Extinction and Giving Up The Ghost.

Sean McGinity

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Todd McGinity

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
