LESBIAN TALK - Episode #65: I Believe In Dungiven Castle
This week, your panel hosts The Omega Geek and Diamanda Hagan look back at their con-related activities of the very recent past. First off, it’s the most exclusive con in the world: Baltimore Con. What is it and who was there? Then, Hagan shares her BroCon 2014 experience: How she made the best of the convention in spite of the venue being double-booked, how the very special review was filmed, her most successful solo panel thus far, how a five-minute interview wound up taking five hours and more!
Furthermore, they comment on the new TGWTG pick-ups, look at future cons and past travel woes, and debate the validity of castles that may or may not be ones at all.
In One Time At The Store, Omega recounts a tale of political conflict, young and old, and a beautiful smackdown.
For this week’s Doctor Who spotlight, the lesbians venture into post-reboot territory and talk about one of the best-regarded episodes of the new show: Dalek. Find out all about what e-le-vates this episode above the average Dalek outing, how else the episode could have gone if the rights hadn’t become available and what ideas grow on the fertile grounds of Omega’s writer mind even now, as we speak.
And finally, blood-red biologist Giovanni Jones posums a brand-new trivia question !
Lesbian Talk can be found on The Omega’s Site, RTgomer Productions, and Hagan’s Wordpress. The MP3 version will soon be available on Thatguywiththeglasses.com !
Now up on TGWTG! Grab the MP3 and rate&comment richly!
A Quick Guide To Classic Who: Season 22 (The Sixth Doctor)
In this super-sized episode, Diamanda Hagan illuminates a classic season of Doctor Who that became infamously known as absolutely wretched. Why’s that so? It may have to do the mangled execution of the return of the second Doctor, with alien fish lesbians, the most horrible and pointless version of the Sontarons, a forced format change, Peri the bird, pointless continuity porn, space cannibals or a number of other factors.
How this could happen, what else went on in front and behind the camera, where to find the hidden flashes of brilliance in the glut of garbage, and how Colin Baker literally partied his way into the lead role… all that and more can be found out by watching this video!
Hagan plushies still available!
The Mistress was selling these unusually adorable stuffed immortalizations of her similarly immortal self at BroCon 2014. However, no doubt due to con-goers being too awestruck to approach her, about five or six plushies remain, and you could own one of them!
Do you see that? Can you see it? You can see it, right? You want it, don’t you? We know you do!
To get your hands on one of these rare treasures, just go to the official Diamanda Hagan Facebook page and send her a message. The cost will be around $35, which is a steal for such a limited run. And the Mistress may even sign them, if so desired. So, what are you waiting for?
Backseat Critique: The Purge: Anarchy
A wayward minion’s visit is a terrible thing to waste, so Hagan and Robyn went to see not one, but two part 2s. And the second sequel of the evening was The Purge 2. Their opinion on it might surprise you! As well as the movie being The Punisher’s most dangerous game stranded on Jerry Springer. And of course, there are lots of fascinating implications to pick apart when it comes to the setting. So come for the critique, stay for the glorious digressions as the duo discusses corpse cleanup agencies, necrophilic life hacks, life in Northern Ireland (it’s the same category), Yelp reviews of violent crimes, Robyn’s dick size and much more!
Backseat Critique: Dawn Of
The Battle For The Planet Of The Apes
It’s a happy day as Robyn The Minion visits the old stomping grounds to join Diamanda Hagan in watching and reviewing a movie. Which one? Well, first off, it’s the newest primate power trip as the planet of the apes dawns darkly. Is it any good? How does it compare to the vintage offering? Why should one of the chimps have been voiced by a long-dead voice actor? Are apes sexist? What do gorillas do on the battlefield? And aren’t we all some kind of ape?
All these questions are posed and answered in this Backseat Critique!
Suitable welcomes to Haganistan
We recently received a message via “fan mail”, asking which episodes would make a good introduction to Diamanda Hagan’s videos. Since the answer is already written out, we may as well make it public.
(Also, links actually work here, to the original submitter will benefit from this, too)
If you are looking to introduce people to The Mistress’ work, it really depends on whom you are dealing with. People who are already familiar with the reviewerverse may find access via the various crossovers.
Out of those, Myra Breckinridge with the Cinema Snob and Poultrygeist with the late, great JewWario are great choices.
If they are not reviewer fans, Hagan’s personal favorite “Sextette" is one of the first choices, as it doesn’t delve too deeply into the more extreme stuff. The Pink Angels is along the same lines, albeit with a little more
LTBTQA+ appeal. Versus is another strong one, ‘though it is a good chunk more violent.
For people actually seek out violent and extreme (as well as extremely obscure) movies, there is, of course, the Schizophreniac trilogy (123), Bad Biology, and, for those who think they couldn’t possibly be shocked by anything anymore, Where The Dead Go To Die.
And, of course, there is always Chirpy.
Flubs: The Passion Of The Christ
When Hagan goes to BroCon, people get involved!
And so it’s no surprise that there is plenty of behind the scenes material from this year’s special live review. Find out how the review came together, what prominent gag was suggested by an audience member , how much whipping was involved and how derkork contributed!
