THE REPORTER Episode #6

Previously on … THE REPORTER. Yolanda and Whykor’s near-death experience had a somewhat happy ending. Thanks to the efforts of Doc Izzy, they both survived the wounds suffered in their crawler encounter. But, that does mean Yolanda owes Tarat the Smasher yet another favor, for it was Tarat that sent her to Doc Izzy. After recovering, yolanda was surprised to learn that Ju Tweedy’s mother — the delightful, tiny Human known to many as “Ma Tweedy” — was still on Madderch. Yolanda and Whykor the Aware are on their way to interview her. And now, Episode number six of … the reporter.

FridayFix • Hollywood, Suckas!

On this week’s FridayFix Scott and I recount our recent trip to Los Angeles to make the rounds with all the media-making folks we know, love or would love to work with soon.  We’ve been at this while, and I think we’re still learning with every trip.

Doctor: Sigler Would Be ‘Healthiest Author Ever’ So Buy His Stuff

You guys! You guys! The craziest thing just hapened. On December 14, Actual For-Real Presidential Candidate Donald Trump released a letter from his physician stating that “If elected, Mr. Trump, I can state unequivocally, will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” NPR showed the whole letter as an image.

To put it mildly, Trump’s doctor thinks the Future Dark President is in really, really good shape (he can’t be the Future Dark Overlord, because that’s me, fools). I mean, it’s almost as if someone asked the doctor to write a glowing letter that isn’t the least bit hyperbolic.

Here’s where it gets weird — my doctor also released a letter about me on the same day Trump’s doc released the letter about him! Insane coincidence, right? In the interest of full disclosure, I decided to follow the lead of my idol — The Donald — and show my letter to the world. After all, I want you to know that I won’t die on you in mid-series, like George R. R. Martin most assuredly will.

ARealGirl here. Scott and I were lucky enough to get an early viewing of SyFy’s new miniseries CHILDHOOD’S END, based on the novel by science fiction legend Arthur C Clarke. I read the book ages ago.

THE REPORTER Episode #2

Star reporter Yolanda Davenport has been tasked by GFL Commissioner Rob Froese to get the real story behind the murder of Grace McDermot. Krakens runningback Ju Tweedy was accused of that murder, an event that almost got him killed by Orbiting Death owner and crimelord Anna Villani, and led to Ju joining the Ionath Krakens. In just her first few hours on the case, Yolanda has already been threatened by Quyth Warrior Marik the Covetous, who may be connected to Krakens owner Gredok the Splithead. Why would Gredok get in the way of finding out the truth about McDermot’s murder, and Ju’s possible guilt?

FridayFix • Kids These Days and also the Hulk

ARealGirl here. Last Friday, Scott and I sat down to rant about the state of superheroes back when we were kids. Sigler was quite upset at how good the “kids these days” have things, because back when he was a boy, superheros were everywhere — but not so much supervillains

http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/152_FridayFix_-_Kids_These_Days_and_the_Hulk.mp3

Oh, and I was afraid of the Hulk when I was a kid.

SHOW NOTES:
I’m still looking for the promised pic of me as a kid. If I find it (no luck at Thanksgiving at my Mom’s house) I’ll post it.

Here’s a little internet proof (for what that’s worth) of the Bruce/David Banner changes.

How did we get these episodes early? Because we’re horribly important and terribly busy. You know, my wallet’s to small for mah $100s and my diamond shoes are too tight. But with great benefit comes great responsibility — we get to tell you what we think of this new series, which is based on the novels of James S.A. Corey.
