The Pop Poppa Nap Cast Episode 95

pop poppa nap cast logoIn an effort to make up for no episode last week, I’m posting The Pop Poppa Nap Cast Episode 95 a bit early this week. I’m feeling good lately thanks to the snow melt and a working car, plus I’m looking forward to seeing where Jack’s next year will take us!

If you’re not a fan of weird ancient Greek hell mythology, the guy pushing the boulder I mentioned was Sisyphus and the bird-gut guy was Prometheus.

I posted about Fiddlestix’s St. Paddy’s Day food here, here and here. You can see what I’m talking about above.

It’s not overly clear in the recording, but Lu’s version of “All About That Bass” translates into “All ’bout that face, ’bout that face, ’bout that face, no travel.”

Wow, I talked about Violet and Scout WAY back in the very first episode of podcast!

Photo Diary: February 2015 Part 1

Hi Gang, I’m trying something new because I am SO behind in posting Photo Diaries.

The Spider-Man issue I mentioned is actually Web of Spider-Man #81 and I reviewed it over on UnitedMonkee.com.

Keep your eyes peeled on UM for a more formal review of Cronos. But, I did review Pacific Rim and The Strain, if you’re interested.

The two kids comics I mentioned are The Clouds Above and Littlest Pet Shop: Open for Business.

I called Aunt May Peter Parker’s grandma. Obviously this is a huge geek goof. It’s clearly his aunt. Please forgive me oh wrathful geek gods.
