Useless Drivel – SHAME!

Useless Drivel Stannis BaratheonEach week, one of the guys here at MITC Productions attempts to bring the listening audience a slightly more than mediocre-in-quality podcast about geekdom and life in general. Meanwhile, the other guy is Robert… or is it the other way around? Either way, join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they discuss comics, poor life choices, getting ripped off, amazing things that never happen and of course, Game of Thrones. It’s a show full of tomfoolery and shenanigans, brought to you courtesy of the new, unofficial sponsor, Korean Surge Soda! So, relax and be prepared with the WTF’s, because it’s going to get all manner of weird in here on a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!

Episode 42 – Favorite Books

Let’s face it.  If it wasn’t for books, we could hardly classify ourselves as geeks.  From the stacks of tomes in our tabletop roleplaying libraries to the shelves lined with everything from history to science fiction, if a geek is anything, they are well read.  Join us this week as we discuss our favorite books and authors, as well as the works that have been most influential on our creative minds.  Be sure to grab your custom bookmark, set aside those reading glasses, and put that awesome book back on the shelf (just for a bit!) as you settle into that comfy reading chair and listen to a whole new episode of Monkey in the Cage!

My “Gold Standard” of Fantasy Art

I know that last week I promised to take a look at Modern RPG settings, but I have to admit, it’s pretty late and I’m kinda phoning this post in, but for very good reasons!  We’ve spent this weekend finally getting to spend time with our elusive 5th member of the MITC Crew, Jared the Intern, as we prepare for this week’s San Diego Comic-Con.  So after two days of gaming, carousing, drinking, recording, and a whole lot of button making, I’m going to take a quick look at my favorite fantasy artist, Tony DiTerlizzi, in honor of the hard working folks camped out in Artist’s Alley down on the SDCC floor.
