Cerulean's Love of Pop Culture, Episode 16

Cerulean's Love of Pop Culture, Episode 16, In which I create the word "utteration" and say "alternate history" when I mean "alternate future".

Note: The last segment of the podcast is of significantly lower volume than the rest. I recorded it in a different room on a different surface.

This is what I discuss:

Last Resort
A spoilery review of Last Resort (also from Io9)
Nice review for Looper.
Annalee Newitz from IO9 loves Person of Interest! It is worth loving. has compiled a list of season premieres
The World's End
Jason Katims to direct half-hour comedy based on the movie About a Boy  (I think my discussion of this got lost in the editing fiasco.)
The Next Generation is 25 years old.
25 little known Next Generation facts
New Scifi bookstore in Brooklyn. No, I'm nowhere near Brooklyn. I think this also got lost in the editing terror of 2012.

I don't think I talked about this, but this is one odd story. The doctors who did this are amazing.

New Trailor for Cloud Atlas

I'm not sure about this. It might be Vanilla Sky weird, instead of life-altering weird.

Ben Affleck Talks About Argo

I am so excited for this movie.

Klingon Style

I've been trying to avoid getting in on the gangham thing, but this is in real Klingon! It's The Next Generation's 25th anniversary! I post this because I love life, I love Star Trek, and I love Klingons!!!!!!!

Cerulean's Love of Pop Culture, Episode 15

Direct Link

In this episode I talk about my first short story podcast.

I talk about my novel and the Southern Beer Review show.

We plan to go to Universal for Halloween Horror Nights and the Harry Potter world. Any other suggestions?

Halfway through my boyfriend woke up, and apparently sounds from the kitchen carry very well.

The new fall season has started. I thought Revolution was meh. Ben and Kate was trying a little too hard, but I love Lucy Punch. I want to like The Mindy Project because I'm fond of Mindy Kaling and some of the other actors on the show.

How I Met Your Mother cheat sheet.

Big Bang Theory trailer.

Creative Emmy winners

Arrested Development casting news.

I put the video for the Psych Comic-Con panel on the blog.

The music I use in this episode is Benjamin Francis Leftwich, "Swim Until You Can't See Land" (Frightened Rabbit cover). You may listen to it here or download his EP at his site.

Ayy Ayy Ayy!

You said that William Shatner is making a documentary about my show? Yippee!!!

TrekWeb quotes William Shatner as saying: "[A Xena convention] is a love fest. It is an embracing of like-minded people. That’s what I discovered. I am editing it right now and it is a fascinating documentary."

Sneak Peek, The Walking Dead

Amanda Palmer and the Grand Theft Orchestra, "The Killing Type"

I usually don't post videos with a commercial in front, but I'm making an exception for this video. I do love Amanda Palmer. She's so intense—I'm exhausted after watching this video.

If anyone has a problem with mild gore, I would suggest not watching this video!

I wonder if she and Neil Gaiman had a conversation after he heard this song. This is my imagining of that conversation:

Neil: song...

Amanda: Oh, don't get all 'Delirium' on me. It's a fictional song about a fictional person.

Neil (backing away): Uh...okay...just checking...
