San Francisco Sketchfest is dorky goodness. I did a live Dork Panel with Todd Glass, Ron Funches and Janet Varney. Oh… I’ll have them back on individually because it was FASCINATING. Table setting, Dioramas and the PS4 are discussed. Not ENOUGH of any of it, but it was still super fun. Enjoy.

Andrew Deutsch and David Nett are this week's guests. They've made a dorky dorky show for the internet called GOLD - an RPG web series. http://www.goblinsandgold.com/csp/gold/.

We talked Dungeons and Dragons and Board Games and, in the end... found that another episode of TDF is going to be needed to talk about comic books and FONTS... the exciting world of Kerning MUST be examined!

Reccomended reading from David, George RR Martin - Game of Thrones and listening from Andrew, The Sountrack to How to Train Your Dragon. Which I cannot find for sale. Awww.... ask Andrew on Twitter (@rollandglass) and then for fun... @davidnett is on twitter too! Fun! I'm in Minneapolis this week at ACME Comedy Company Downtown if you're around. Come say hi.

Thanks for listening out there, take care out there! Jackie

For the first time I think I’m out chatted. Doug Benson owns his dorkdom with a dignity that I truly admire and Eddie Pepitone is a fascinating man in search of his muse. Together their enjoyment of the minutia of life, from twitter to game shows, defines what I really think of when I think of dorkdoms. This episode is cussy – just so you know.

 

Vagaries discussed

The Muppets (new Muppet Movie Eddie is in. And I knew Amy Adams was once I saw her picture).

Veronica Mars (A great TV show that was cancelled)

Nielsen Ratings (I’m sure it’s important-I can’t figure an average. Mostly b/c I can’t care).

Jean Doumanian (SNL and Woody Allen producer)

Pema Chodron (Tibetan Buddhism Teacher)

Money Drop (Kevin Pollack Hosted new game show)

Murray Head - Chess (One Night in Bangkok)

Noises Within (theater in Glendale)

Dick Cavett interviews Janis Joplin (I love what she says after 5:00)

Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work (Netflix Streaming)

Paul Newman – Robert Redford (4th paragraph on this link has the car crushing story)

 

Books recommended

 

Eddie

Death of the Liberal Class – Chris Hedges

Hollywood Writers from 1950-1985 (find Eddie on twitter and ask him which of a million versions of this title)

 

Doug

Zombie Spaceship Wasteland: a Book by Patton Oswalt

Jackie

Talk Show – Dick Cavett

Fool On The Hill – Matt Ruff
