  • Walt Disney & the 1964 World’s Fair (CD boxset)

    In the past seven years or so my wife and I have visited Walt Disney World numerous times and I’ve made it a kind of mission to soak up as much information as I could about what went into making them. To that end I’ve watched documentaries and read tons of books on the subject. However so far I’ve only encountered one audio boxset, and while the topic of the set isn’t directly related to the parks it certainly laid the groundwork for some of the best works the parks have ever seen.

    In the last episode of our podcast I gave a little history lesson/talk about the 1964 World’s Fair and Walt Disney’s involvement in it. The idea to cover it on the show stemmed from my wanted to try and spread some of the reasons why I love the topic of Disney so much, and why I consider the man a hero of mine. The podcast topic was just a glimpse, and hopefully I can find some ways to bring up interesting areas of the Disney company in future podcasts.

    But today we’re here to talk about audio! Audio from the four attractions that Walt Disney produced for various companies at the fair. So, please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Let’s take a look!

    Welcome to another exciting edition of the Geekly! There’s plenty of geekness to talk about, including Breaking Bad, Pinny Arcade, and new stuff at Thinkgeek. Read on and get ready to open your wallet!

    Let’s talk about Breaking Bad, and how amazing that finale was. I was blown away completely by the perfection of the ending, even if some people had issues. As far as I remember, that question WAS answered – but who am I to challenge the New York Times? The important thing is that this t-shirt exists and I am probably going to buy it, if I haven’t bought it by the time you see this post. (more…)

    Top 5 Things of 2012: The Dan Zuccarelli Edition!

    We here at Perpetual Geek Machine think life as a nerd has been pretty spectacular in 2012. Great movies, games, tv shows and more. We’ve made friends with Nicole Kline, and then put her to work writing here! Rich got engaged, Dan bought a house. There’s a good chance Ryan and/or Bryan did something adorably Canadian. Kevin spent most of the year brewing beer and Adam made it through the latest Mayan apocalypse mostly unscathed!

    Just like last year to celebrate the end of this trip round the sun we got together to run down our top 5 favorite things of the year. We then presented those during part 1 of our spectacular year end podcast. In part 2 of that podcast we whittle out lists down to a Top 5 to represent the site as a whole, and then 1 singular item that is Perpetual Geek Machine’s favorite thing of 2012. Last year The Muppets was our winner. What will take the crown this year? Listen to the podcast to find out!
