The Atomic Moocast #102!


“Wow!”, I hear you all saying. “Another Moocast and so soon! Thank you Mister Trog, you’re awesome!” Yes. Yes I am, and you very are welcome. So, here it is folks: episode #102, where in we talk with Inside Out actress:92a86df66c5238f4842cb2d222e0e6ba_400x400 Lori Alan!!! Lori has been in such great shows like Toy Story 3, Sponge Bob Square Pants, and Family Guy and now she’s here to tell us all about working on Inside out! Frigg’n groovy!

Just a real quick note about this show: While recording with Lori, the call dropped. Many times. Maybe it was Verizon, maybe it was Skype, I don’t know (wasn’t me) but there were a few times the call was interrupted. However, I’m a middling to good editor, so what follows is all the pieces put back together in a mostly seamless way.Mom'sSaddness Mostly… I would have mentioned all that on the Moocast itself, but I forgot. So, yeah, that happened, but it was still an awesome conversation and we are very happy Lori came on our show.

So, here we go folks! This Moocast is a fresh, steaming, load of podcasting excellence just waiting to ooze down your ear holes! Prepare yourselves! Go now and get a cool fizzy soda, and find that comfy spot, because you’re about to let the Moocast into your brain squidgy regions of your brain!

The Morning Moo!

Featuring very cool Snake Plissken art and the Star Trek: Renegades Trailer!

Good morning, El Moochadores. Sorry about the lack of post lately, but I’m lazy. Yeah. It’s something I’d work on, but… lazy. Anyways; For today’s Morning Moo check out the great Snake Plissken art above. The piece was created by German artist Fabian Schlaga, and you can buy a print of it at Sideshowtoy.com. I’ve also posted a few other samples of Schlaga’s work below from his Deviant Art page.

Star Trek: Renegades


Is it still a fan film if it has Chekov in it? I think not. Anyways; Check out the recently published trailer for a new, independently produced, new Star Trek series: Star Trek: Renegades. The new show is produced by the same people who made Star Trek: Gods and Men. Here’s the synopsis:

Renegades will be a departure from previous Treks – delving into the dark side of the human psyche, pushing our heroes to their limits, forcing them to carry out actions that they never would have as Starfleet officers. The rules have changed, and they realize they might be the last hope to save the Federation. Star Trek: Renegades will be action oriented, filled with suspense and espionage; all while exploring new worlds, encountering both familiar and new alien species, and boldly going where no Trek has gone before.

Renegades will star/feature Adrienne Wilkinson, Bruce A. Young, Walter Koenig, Robert Picardo, Tim Russ, Gary Graham, Sean Young, Manu Intiraymi, Corin Nemec, Edward Furlong, and many more. No really. It’s a lot and I’m tired of typing. See, lazy.

The Morning Moo!


Featuring Red Panda art and a cool proof of concept short film!

Good damn morning El Moochadores! Okay, so today we may have a bran (is it “brand” or “bran”… meh) new Moocast podcast to post later on today along with a new book review. It’s gonna be a busy day, so let’s get into it.

Like the “h2″ header said; today we got some great Red Panda art (yeah, I know. Not really “geek creative,” but dammit: RED PANDAS!), and cool proof of concept film called Envoy!


Red Panda!!!

red_panda_by_gaudibuendia-d8n3cok (1)

I just found out about these little critters a few months ago, but damnit! I love ’em! Check out this great piece of red panda art by Deviant art contributor Alexandra Khitrova (aka: GaudiBuendia). She’s a Russian artist with a great portfolio of work. Hit the link above to see more! Also, MORE RED PANDA STUFF! They’re so damn cute! Ha!


envoy 2

Check out this fantastic short film, Envoy, from director David Weinstein. According to the vimeo page, this is a proof of concept for what will (hopefully) be a larger film. The story is about a young boy “who discovers a deadly alien creature and winds up entangled in a top secret government operation.”

The Morning Moo!


Featuring Walking Dead 8 Bit Parody, The Infinite Crisis Sound Track, and The Leviathan!

Hello El Moochadores and I hope you’re having a happy morning. Or, at least an okay morning. Or, at the very least, you have an escape route planned and your car will start. In any case, we got some cool stuff to share with you today. Below check out the sound track (Batman Theme) to the new Infinite Crisis game, a new Cinefix 8-bit parody of The Walking Dead, and this amazing proof of concept short film called the Leviathan

It’s all good.

The Walking Dead (Part 1!) – 8 Bit Cinema


Cinefix recently produced a new 8-bit parody of The Walking Dead, which is really cool, but dammit, just start making these games already. I would play this. If this was on a mobile device (phone, tablet, watch… what ever), I would totally pay to play this. A little. I would pay a little. A reasonable amount. Anyways, this represents the first two season’s of AMC’s hit zombie show. According to the youtube page, there’s a Part 2 soon to be released.

Infinite Crisis Video Game Soundtrack – Batman Theme – OFFICIAL

Infinite_Crisis_video_game_splash (1)

Check out the Batman theme for the new Infinite Crisis game.the music was produced by Water Tower Music. I haven’t yet played Infinite Crisis, so I don’t have an opinion on the game, but the music sounds pretty great!

The Leviathan — Teaser


Many of you have probably already seen this floating across the internet, because it’s rad, but check out The Leviathan, a short “Proof of Concept Teaser.” It was created by Ruairi Robinson and scripted by Jim Uhls, the screenwriter of Fight Club. The first rule of Leviathans… sorry, I had to. holy shit, I’m going back to bed.

The Morning Moo!


With behind the scenes of Chappie

How the hell did I get sick again? I feel like crap right now, so this’ll be a very short Morning Moo. Then, I’m going back to bed. I hate getting sick.


Behind the Scenes of Chappie


Via Wired: Check out a short, behind the scenes, look at Neil Blomkamp’s new movie, Chappie. This movie looks great, but I keep thinking “Johnny 5 is alive” every time I see a ad for it.


Jupiter Ascending! The Hunt For Twilight Money…


The opinions expressed in the following review of the Wachowskis new movie, Jupiter Ascending, do not necessarily reflect those of AtomicMoo.com or its staff. However, it should be noted that Atomic Moo’s opinions are much like the fabled vampire and are rarely reflected in anything…


They’re finally back! One-hit-wonder filmmakers, the Wachowskis, have returned once again to set the big screen on fire… at least in their heads. Best known for creating The Matrix, and then pissing away any and all goodwill that movie had generated thanks to a fetid stream of swings and misses, the duo have teamed up once more for a new sci-fi adventure titled Jupiter Ascending.matrix

No, you read that right. Yes, that is the title. And yes, that is a terrible, terrible title. With a name like that, it could either be a really forced multi-issue comic book crossover “event,” or some art house cinema piece in which, over two hours, and filmed in a single take, the cloudy planet of Jupiter moves from the bottom of the screen to the top. To be completely honest, either of those options would have been preferable to the slop the Dynamic Duo have once more thrown upon the silver screen.

I have to hand it to the brothers: they’re clever businessmen. In an attempt to refill the coffers, they have tried to cash in on the recent trend of sub-D-tier valueless sci-fi/fantasy aimed at tasteless teenage girls filled with casts of improbably good-looking people. Yes, it’s one of those, and with the trademark Wachowski overuse of CGI and slow-motion, no less.

The tissue-paper-thin plot has holes large enough to fly a starship through, but I shall do my best to recap it here. Basically, the chick who played Jackie in That ‘70s Show is illegal immigrant from Russia (in the movie, I mean) who spends her days cleaning toilets in Chicago. One day, the dude from Magic Mike rolls into town to whisk her away on an interplanetary adventure of some kind.Jup_Ascend

Y’see, she learns that humans aren’t the only species in space, and that a family of infighting inbreeders are the most powerful beings in the universe. They rule over planets, populate them with genetically-modified human-based clones, and return after millions of years to “harvest.” The human-based life forms are turned into tubes of a valuable currency of some kind, which somehow makes the bad guys live forever. Jackie, for some reason, has the same genetic code as the late Queen of Space, and her bickering children each want the inheritance (ie: planets to rule) to themselves. So, Magic Mike must project Jackie from evil space murderers because she’s some kind of queen and has control over the Earth, which is just one planet in all of the cosmos.

Some What Current News from Not News Guys…

Good Morning El Moochadores! One of the things I use to hate about doing the Morning Moo was that on busy work days it was often the only post I could get done for the site. So all I would see at the end of a work week is a long line of “Morning Moo’s” on the blog.

Warmest Year On Record!


Ye Gods, but I fucking love science. I also love the site IFLScience.com. Spell it out for your self folks… Anyways, this report isn’t so much creative as it is geeky, but check out this report from NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies that show’s 2014 was the hottest year since record keeping began in 1880. Very interesting, and worth a listen while you idle your car in bumper to bumper traffic while go to work this morning, you Earth murdering maniac!

Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen Won’t Return For X-Men: Apocalypse!


Via Rolling Stone; It looks like we won’t be getting to see the older, wiser, better looking (they probably think so), versions of Professor X and Magneto in the upcoming X-Men: Apocalypse. According to the article on Rollingstone.com, Patrick Steward was on Larry King Now and said,

I was learning quite a lot more about it last night, and it is going to be looking very much at the earlier lives of all our characters. And so I don’t think we’ll be making an appearance – Nor Sir Ian McKellen, either.


ATROPA: Awesome Sci-fi Short!


Finally, check out this great short film by Eli Sasich called Atropa! The short film was written by Clay Tolbert and stars Anthony Bonaventura, Jeannie Bolet, David M. Edelstien, Ben Kliewer, and Chris Voss. It’s the futuristic story of “An Off-World Detective investigates the missing research vessel ATROPA.”

Okay folks, I’m off to earn my minimum wage! Keep coming back to the blog for more great geek creativity! Have a good one!

The Morning Moo…


Some What Current News from Not News Guys…

Good morning El Moochadores! Okay, I’m not actually that enthusiastic. It’s amazing to me how quickly my day ends by just waking up. Anyways… check out what’s below.

The Expanse’ Trailer


Wow, looks like Syfy (pronounced Siffeee) is going to do some actual science fiction. Golly, I hope this doesn’t interfere with their stellar Ghost Hunting and wrestling programs. The new series is called the Expanse, a science fiction drama based on novels by James S.A. Corey (who I think is really two people), and is directed by Steven Strait and stars Thomas Jane (the Punisher). Check out the synopsis and trailer below!

The Expanse’ follows the case of a missing young woman who brings a hardened detective and a rogue ship’s captain together in a race across the solar system to expose the greatest conspiracy in human history.

Diva Plavalaguna Interview


I came across this interview (published on youtube in 2012) with Fifth Element actress, Maïwenn, and thought it was interesting. And now you get to watch it too. Your welcome.

Okay El Moochadores, that’s all I got for this morning. Maybe tomorrow morning I’ll have time to post some actual news. Maybe, but don’t get your hopes up. Anyways… we’ve got a new Moocast to upload later today and lots of other geek creative stuff so keep coming back to the site to see more!



“In the Future, Humans Create A.I.”

“Three Days Later They Have Sex With It…”

If robot hookers existed, would you have sex of them? Of course! So would I, or any other semi-rational science fiction fan of Battlestar Galactica, Blade Runner, or Space Camp. No, that’s not the question. The real question is, why don’t we have sex robots now? Where the hell are you on that one science? Sure, you’re real quick to get us stickey pads and George Foreman grills, but you can’t produce at least one trick turning cyber vixen? wtf science? Could you at least advance the Roomba to a point where does more than mop the floor in a literal sense? C’mon!

Okay, so at the moment we can’t have robo sex (dammit), but we can at least pretend such a thing might someday exist by watching a very funny web series that explores the would be future of robot prostitution.Image_03 Created by Adam Lash and Kevin Gilligan, Gigahoes is a mockumentary web series about a future escort agency that deals in “sex-bots.” Each episode follows the exploit of one of their sex robots as it performs for various weirdos and sex addicts.

There’s a real “Clerks” like charm about this series that I enjoyed. Yeah, It has a sort of low budget feel, but the writing and acting are excellent, and each episode goes deeper down the rabbit hole (kind of literally in one show) of weird sexual exploits with out being over the top and remaining very witty.Image_02 The series features a talented cast, including creators Lash and Gilligan, along with Jessica Park, Malorie Bryant, Kimberlee Walker, Daniel Florio, and KL Thomas. My only critism of the show is it’s lack of science fiction. I think a show about future sex robots, like this one, is a brilliant idea, but would benefit from looking at the low budget science fiction of the 1980’s, like Dr. Who and Red Dwarf. I think they should go nuts (figuratively) with the wardrobe and sets! “Fake future” it up a little bit to pull us into the 2030’s. Right now the show feels too much like 2014 -15, but (y’know) with sex droids.

All the same though, this is a fun series and well worth a look. Plus, if a sex droid that looked like Jessica Park or Kimberlee Walker did exist, I could see myself calling up an order.image_01 Maybe bring her to my place… call her “Vicki”… then have her wear a puffy red dress and white appron… and bake me some cookies… and don’t judge me! Every red blooded American male who grew up in the ’80’s has had that fantasy at least once, and if you haven’t, then go back to Russia you commie! Jesus, at least I wouldn’t call her “Johnny Five”… well, not at first…

Anyways, check out a few sample episodes below along with a 2014 New York Comic Con video. More information and behind the scenes videos can be seen at their website!
