Babylon Podcast #204: Feedbackapalooza

Welcome to Show #204!

Tim, Summer and Bret jump back in the saddle in the new-old studio! Tim also reads an announcement about the new Wonder Woman outfit and story that’s the result of JMS taking over the reboot of the comic that he’ll be writing.

And Tim is still bitter that there’s not forward movement on the Lensman project.

Feedbackapalooza: Summer gets lost in a temporal loop of host love and fan love and fan feedback love. Everything else is dust in the solar winds…

This episode brought to you by G’vitra

Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is starting a push to get Lurker’s Guide 2.0 completed and finished, including missing collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.

More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!

  1. Wow. I really must’ve irked you guys at some point. Are my VMs just not getting through or something? ๐Ÿ™

  2. Not enought forward momentum on “Lensman”? Well, the streets of Hollow-wood are littered with projects that are pining for the fjords. I can think of at least two remakes of “Forbidden Planet” and three remakes of “When Worlds Collide” that never came to pass.

    And…even if it is JMS…I’m not sure I want Kimball & Co. up on the screen. Especially if they are “updated”. I’d rather have them play in the cinema of the mind, where I get everything “just right”.

  3. Arkle – yes, I am irked. So irked. Irked beyond belief. Irked at Ark. le. No, the problem is that I tend to be lazy and don’t harvest voicemails until a month or so has gone by. So inevitably, even with gmail filters in place, I just don’t grab every message sent. Nothing personal. I think Gary takes a shotgun approach to calling in, to make sure at least one message makes the cut.

    Fred – I think – hope – believe – that JMS would “update” the Lensman saga without “modernizing” it. A lot will depend on the production design as well.

  4. Fred: The new Predator movie that’s coming out? Robert Rodriguez wrote the script for that in 1994. They don’t call it pre-production hell for nothing.

  5. Wow, thanks for the e-mail read-out. I agree with what was said about the view of Earth’s religions being largely dependant on the observer.

    Add me to the list of people who’d love to see B5 remastered, although it would put an end to the game of “spot the impending live action CGI” that you can play on the PAL DVDs. Maybe if we have a whip-round we can drum up enough cash?

    You aspoloded my brain with the triluminary talk, I’m afraid.

    I guess I better get my arse in gear and buy Crusade otherwise I’m not going to have a clue what you’re talking about before long…

  7. Gary The Great says

    Shotgun approach? How about insightful commentary, or thought provoking questions, or keen observations.

    A few more comments like that Mr. Callendar and you might find your fan club down by one member. Kate in Chicagoland will be awfully lonely.

    Of course sending in dozens a week does help the jewels to rise to the surface. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Paul Hahn says

    Do note, BTW, that the very first person in line at the end of “The Parliament of Dreams” was an atheist.

    I’m pretty sure jms said online at some point that the Triluminaries came from The Great Machine (or at least from the same source), avoiding the paradoxical time loop. If so it’s somewhere on either The Lurker’s Guide, jmsanswers, or in Asked and Answered. I’ll try to look it up and post it here.
