Friday Fix – Inside Empty Set:
Con Season Begins!

Badge from SiglerFest 2k13As Scott is busy furiously packing up Empty Set Studios North, we stole a few moments to record another edition of Inside Empty Set, where we talk about things pertinent to the business side of our business.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/106_FridayFix__Inside_Empty_Set__Con_Season_Begins.mp3

This year we’ll attend: Balticon, San Diego Comic Con, Dragon*Con, SiglerFest & ReadCon in Greeley, CO.

Friday Fix — Chuckles Mulrooney Full-Cast Live Reading

Chuckles takes a call

This is a terrific, full-cast, live reading of “Chuckles Mulrooney, Attorney for the Damned.” It was recording at the New Media Expo in Las Vegas in January 2014, and was engineered and mastered by Bryan Lincoln. Renee Chambliss did the cajoling and organizing on behalf of NMX to select the right story, and they assembled the perfect cast to bring it to life! Big thanks to both, and we hope you enjoy it!

 

The Killer Cast:
Narrator - Renee Chambliss
Victor - Johnny Feisty
Morty – Scott Sigler
Satan - Rish Outfield
Chuckles - Big Anklevich
Mephistopheles - Marshal Latham
Sound effects by Bryan Lincoln

This sounds so good and is proof of a rich, wonderful environment alive and well in podcast fiction. As I mention in the intro, there were several live readings during the conference, all delightful.

Big thanks to Bryan Lincoln for the wonderful story audio.

FridayFix™ – Interview with Charlaine Harris & Toni L.P. Kelner

The anthology GAMES CREATURES PLAY is out today, April 1 — Sigler Ascension Day! To celebrate the release of this girthy tome, Scott interviews the book’s editors: Charlaine Harris and Toni L.P. Kelner.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/103_FridayFix_-_Interview_with_Charlaine_Harris__Toni_L.P._Kelner.mp3

Together, this duo has edited seven anthologies. Toni is an Agatha Award-winning mystery author, and Charlaine is perhaps best known as the author of the Sookie Stackhouse series, upon which the HBO show TRUE BLOOD is based.

The trio of authors discuss the GAMES anthology, as well as the challenges involved in getting genre authors — who sometimes have animosity toward athletics and the sports culture — to combine for the great tales included in this collection. Toni and Charlaine also share some of their experiences on growing up well outside the sports culture, and coming to appreciate athletics in their own ways.

Friday Fix — Inside Empty Set: Doggs & Deadlines

We received a good bit of feedback after our post-PANDEMIC tour discussion, saying it was nice to see “behind the curtain” a little.

As we always aim to please, we’re planning to chat about the ins and outs of Empty Set about once a month, as the schedule allows.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/102_FridayFix__Inside_Empty_Set_Doggs__Deadlines.mp3

In this first episode we talk a bunch about Scott’s oppressive deadlines, and more about Snoop Dogg than you’d imagine, or I would have liked. But there you go.

Friday Fix: SiglerFest 2K14 Registration is Now Open!

If you missed any of the previous three SiglerFests, you missed a great weekend with great people.

Come for the Sigler, stay for the awesome Junkies you will meet and love and cherish your whole life long. I’m not even kidding. And, who can say, maybe the cousins will turn up! Will Pope Siglericus XXX risk showing his face in Las Vegas again? And SiglerFest 2K13 taught us that Francis Dominic Oliveri is terrible at arm wrestling and smacktalking, but good at bowling and karaoke. Okay, not great at bowling either.

Transporter Private Cloud Storage

Transporter Private Cloud Storage

This week’s Friday Fix is a hybrid — it’s also about one of our advertisers. We’ve recently started using Transporter private cloud storage as our primary storage for all the audiobooks, podcasts and video that Scott’s created over the last nine years.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/100_FridayFix_Transporter_Private_Cloud_Storage.mp3

Scott and I chat about the pros and cons for us, and some early pitfalls Scott experienced in trying to back up 800gb of data. (That, my friends, is officially a lot of data.)

FridayFix: The “Captain Spaulding”

The FDØ invents a fancy drinky-drink

Author Mur Lafferty has a new book out in March, called THE GHOST TRAIN TO NEW ORLEANS. It’s a sequel to her Campbell Award-winning novel THE SHAMBLING GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY, a paranormal tale about a plucky heroine who winds up writing travel guides for the undead.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/01_How_to_make_the_perfect__Captain_Spaulding_.mp3.mp3

Mur was recently on Twitter talking about a fictional drink in the book called a “Captain Spaulding.” This drink contains gin and demon blood. Blargh. She wondered how that might translate to the real world (assuming you don’t have a demon in your basement, like I do, cause I’m pimp like that, and, yes, mine wears a gimp suit). She even started a contest where you could come up with your own drink recipe for the Spaulding.

While I recuse myself from this contest, I could not let this opportunity pass me by. Hence, this FridayFix focuses on my interpretation of the Captain Spaulding. Enjoy!

This is how the other half lives, bitches.

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/97_FridayFix_Post_PANDEMIC_Tour_Wrap_Up.mp3

A couple of weeks back we did a little podcast about how we went about booking the PANDEMIC Tour. Today we’re bringing you a short sweet little wrap up recorded this week just as Scott was heading home at the end of a successful tour.

We also talk a bit about the big GFL pre-order event coming this Saturday! Ready or not, it’s almost here! Check out the crowd at the Redondo Beach Mysterious Galaxy, below, all of whom came out for the LA stop of the PANDEMIC tour. Some didn’t make it out alive, but there were a lot of them, so it’s not really a problem.
