Episode 40: Back to the Melee: SHUT UP, INTERNET!!!

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Well, 'Combies. It's that time again. Of course, it's another episode of the Honeycomb Hideout, but it's more than that. It's a Melee episode! For those uninitiated, a "melee" is a confused scuffle or struggle. That is a pretty accurate description of what these episodes are; they are unplanned, unbridled streams of consciousness of your boys jump from topic to topic. Whether it's politics, fan entitlement, video games, extremely random references... Well... more random references than usual... and so much more! So if you want to get swept up into the melee, come on down and hold on tight, 'cuz it's gonna be a bumpy ride!!

For the video "Couch Commander" featuring President Barack Obama referenced by Paul, watch THIS!

For the interview that the guys inadvertently gape at William Fichtner over, watch THIS!

For the non-butchered original image that Joe is referencing from the Marvel series "Siege", look at THIS!

And because awesomeness, for the Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite teaser, WATCH THIS!

Episode 32: Otaku Ambitions and the Rants that follow

Tuesday, March 22nd, 2016

The boys are back and they're bringing a new young entrepreneur into the Hideout! Ervin Johnson, of Shining Otaku, share with the boys his new community oriented manga platform and forthcoming plans. However, it doesn't take long for Ervin to join in on their antics as they discuss numerous up-and-coming bits in pop culture from Batman v. Superman to the new Ghostbusters film. This one goes pretty up and down so be sure to brace yourself (sides and all!).

Episode 29: ACTUAL Shapes and Sizes

Monday, August 17th, 2015

Alright, 'Combies! After a bit of a hiatus and a lot of kitbashing, we're back to discuss yet another controversial topic: the female anatomy and how it's conveyed in the media! But to cover our bases, we actually have a woman on the show to help rein us in a bit (if that's possible). Artist Katie Hodges joins Joe, Mark and Nik in the Hideout to talk about this very controversial and yet extremely important issue in regards to art and media. So come on down and see where this particular rabbit hole leads!

And for those playing the home game, to follow along with the discussion, here are the relevant articles in the order they are discussed:

Episode 27: The Spoils of Geekdom

Friday, March 13th, 2015

The time to return is here again, 'Combies! This time, host Joe Cain is joined again by Ben Rodriguez as the two rattle off and on about a menagerie of topics. From the interesting pickin's at the theater (Spoilerific reviews of "Jupiter Ascending" and "Kingsman: The Secret Service, you have been warned) to revisitations, adaptations and flatout reboots abound to some Ben's most recent reads to net neutrality. Also, prepare for loads and loads of geektastic topic dissection, but then that might go without saying. It's a veritable rabbit hole of nerdity, so sit back and see if you can keep up!
