If you’re a gamer and a geek, then undoubtedly you’ve amassed a grand collection of wondrous treasures, from boxes and books to cartridges and discs. While some of these items may be considered mundane or even relics of geek ages long past, we all know that it goes against our very nature to part with such great gifts of enjoyment, even if we’ve never taken the shrink wrap off yet! Join us this week as we delve into our geek closets and discuss games of all types – purchased, played, and otherwise. Clear off the table, charge up those controllers, and for God’s sake read some damn instructions as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Do you ever find yourself watching a movie, reading a book, or playing a game and thinking to yourself, “This has happened before”? Of course, we all have? But, this form of entertainment deja vu isn’t because you’ve decided to re-watch, re-read, or re-play. Join us this week as we discuss the phenomenon of entertainment influencing itself, for better or for worse. From classic literature to classless television, it seems there are no bounds. Dust off that tome of Shakespeare, spike up that blow-out, and whatever you, don’t feed the Honey Boo Boo as you settle in for a certified original episode of Monkey in the Cage!
For gamers and geeks alike, comic books are essential for building up your geek street-cred. While we here at Monkey in the Cage are a little behind the curve on mainstream comics, we’re working to fill the holes in our geek game every week. Join us this week as we talk comics and comic artists, both big name and independent, with our special guest, designer and illustrator Dennis Salvatier. We talk everything from the comics of our golden age (the 90’s) through the books that influence and entertain us today. Squeeze into your spandex, fasten the clasps on your cape, and get ready for a wild ride on this weeks all new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
