BtS Radio episode #2 (Feb 15, 2017)

bts radio podcast episode 2 feb 15 2017

Here’s our 2nd episode of our Between the Staples Radio Show as a podcast! I went 2.5 hours after a fumble this morning at 10am to get started as it took a bit due to mic issues but NONE of that is on the podcast which is why I went and rambled on. I started with a song then talked about the following: LEGO BATMAN & JOHN WICK Chapter 2 movies, CW TV shows The Flash & Arrow. A musical song break. More Arrow then I went on about some comics that I’ve been reading for both Marvel & DC. Lastly, I talked some video games I’m playing (The Division, How to Survive 2, Destiny, GTAOnline) & thoughts on them and ended with some more quick points on Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and Agents of Shield. Enjoy! Remember. NSFW. Use headphones!

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie – Trailer

The LEGO Ninjago movie trailer Feb2017

Seriously Jackie Chan as Master Wu in the upcoming The LEGO NINJAGO Movie makes we want to watch this RIGHT FREAKING NOW!!

From YouTube about the upcoming movie…
In this big-screen NINJAGO adventure, the battle for NINJAGO City calls to action young Master Builder Lloyd, aka the Green Ninja, along with his friends, who are all secret ninja warriors. Led by Master Wu, as wise-cracking as he is wise, they must defeat evil warlord Garmadon, The Worst Guy Ever, who also happens to be Lloyd’s dad. Pitting mech against mech and father against son, the epic showdown will test this fierce but undisciplined team of modern-day ninjas who must learn to check their egos and pull together to unleash their inner power of Spinjitzu.

Jackie Chan (“Kung Fu Panda,” The Karate Kid”) stars as Master Wu; Justin Theroux (“Magamind 2,” “The Leftovers”) is Garmadon; Dave Franco (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) plays Lloyd; and Olivia Munn (“X-Men: Apocalypse”) is Lloyd’s mom, Koko. Making up the secret ninja crew, Fred Armisen (“The Jim Gaffigan Show,” “SNL”) voices Cole; Abbi Jacobson (“Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising”) plays Nya; Kumail Nanjiani (“Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates”) is Jay; Michael Peña (“Ant-Man,” “The Martian”) is Kai; and Zach Woods (“Silicon Valley”) voices Zane.

Jackie Chan & Olivia Munn?! UM Fnck YEAH!! Dave Franco is a Meh but who cares, it’s Jackie Chan!!

The LEGO NINJAGO Movie comes crashing with Kung-Fu action into theaters on September 22, 2017!

One Year Later… Yeah, we’re thinking we’re BACK! Now The DOOM of Between the Staples

Yeah we're thinking we're back! Between the Staples is back, baby!

It has been a Year with Between the Staples being back on the Interwebs (Happy Anniversary to US!). I think the John Wick snippet video below is applicable, don’t you?! You might notice that we’ve change the look of Between the Staples a bit? A spanky new logo, some new backgrounds and tidy up some colours. Big thanks to Ian Aspden, Chris Hunter, Talking Comics & Arctic Grodd for their contributions, support & belief. Most of the site may stay the same although I am tempting a whole new look in the near future.

Until then, enjoy the site with all our geek / comic rambles, posts & news!

Yeah, we're thinking we're BACK! Between the Staples year two infinity and beyond!

I CANNOT wait for this movie to come out, one of my favorite Titan stories – Teen Titans: The Judas Contract looks awesome! THIS is my Titans team w a mix of Damien Robin & Blue Beetle. Oh man, I wish to the Forgotten Gawds that THIS was a comic out now vs the Titan books out now. Can’t wait to see Nightwing, Starfire, Raven, Changeling / Beast Boy w the others mentioned kick some series ass! Starring the voice acting of Christina Ricci, the late Miguel Ferrer (perhaps one of his last pieces of work?), Taissa Farmiga, and Jake T. Austin to name a few.
