What Sax Does

Hey folks!

 New to HavingSaxOnline.com? Well how do you do!?!?

I just thought I’d remind everyone I have a seriously cripplingly large amount of podcasts every week that you should check out.

PS: a careful listener can hear me almost 40 times a month. Fuck….

Expect a weekly PODCAST PODBLAST here every Saturday night… but until then here’s the big list of what I do, and what’s upcoming:

– Fandom Planet (www.theFandomPlanet.com)

Fandom Planet logo

A mostly weekly look at all things geeky. Hosts Powers and Carr (that’s me!) know what it’s like to be a fan, so they bring you the show they’d want to listen to. It’s a celebration of fans and the things we become devoted too. From comics to television to making little intricate plastic models of flying steam powered ghost ships… it’s all welcome on “The Planet for Fans”. Each week we grab a guest from the things YOU care about and talk about what makes them geek out. We contrast their own fandom with the things they created that generated so many fans on its own. You get the idea. Geeks talking to geeks… what’s not to like?

Past guests include: Allison Scagliotti – Stan Lee – Alessandra Torresani – Wally Wingert – A TON of writers for comics, television, and film… and MANY more.

So check it out!

– This is REALLY Happening (www.newsofthedoomed.com)

Each and every day there is story in your local newspaper or on your favorite news station that makes you sit back and say: “Well humanity is FUCKED”. We take those stories, and every week we break down the “Things that make you feel DOOOMED”. It’s a laugh a minute (or more) as we discuss the strange things people do, invent, and destroy. It’s all the crazy stories from the whole world and Florida. If you’ve ever laughed at a Meth addict setting a fireworks factory on fire, this is the show for you. Powers/Carr hosts this gem, also on CraveOnline.com and iTunes.

– The Idiot Box (www.craveonline.com/TV/)

I host this one with Blair Marnell and we talk about this week in television.

It goes out every Monday on CraveOnline.com (it’s also on iTunes). If you are one of many people who like my rants… this may be the best place to find them. I have a lot

of strong opinions about television.

Apparently that’s very polarizing. Please… less death threats. We get some cool guests too!

It’s worth a listen, but be warned we are full or spoilers.

– Hats (http://geekfactorylabs.com/)

Hats

Somebody told me you had to have a premise to have a podcast. Well Sam Weller and I took that as a challenge. This show that is basically two comedians blathering (each of us famous for wearing signature hats) is a real laugh riot. No guests, and no form at, we just talk for an hour or so and leave it

at that. I consider this my vanity project.

It comes out monthly for now, but we’ re upgrading soon.

Got suggestions? Keep them to yourself.

We hate structure! Curse you structure!

– Autopsy (http://geekfactorylabs.com/)

 Autopsy

This podcast (which has yet to air its pilot due to technical issues) is pretty innovative. Ever wonder why things fai

l? Well Emil Bonty and I use the tried and true procedure of an autopsy to dissect the movies and television shows that died before their time and tell you what the cause was.

Were they murdered by a studio that didn’t understand them? Or was it suicide by lead actress? It’s all in the Autopsy. Monthly on Geek Factory Labs. We PROMISE to get one of these out soon.

The autopsy result on our own podcast is post production FAIL!

– Pizza Games and Zombies “PGZ!”  (pizzagamesandzombies.com)

Pizza Games & Zombies

A weekly podcast where myself, Sam Proof (internet Viking), Chan (Robert fucking Chan!), and kidnapped pizza delivery boy Zack S. West take a look at a board game, pizza place, and ever evolving topic about zombies. Yes, it’s exactly what you think it is, PIZZA GAMES and ZOMBIES.This one comes out Thursdays, but records live to the interwebs on Sundays. Come be part of the chat room at PizzaGamesandZombies.com/Watch every Sunday at 7pm PST. If you like any of these things you’ll be happy. Also we drink. This is my fastest growing podcast with almost exponential numbers. Get in on the ground floor before we get all elitist about it.

– MXCST  ? pronounced Mix-Cast  (www.mxlgy.com)

Mixcast

This one is still in pre-production.

Ever enjoy one of those amazing craft cocktails. You know the ones where mixology is still an art and a science and not DRUNK JUICE. Well, have we got the show for you (We being Sam Proof and myself). Twice a month we record live at a bar in Hollywood California and experiment with the coolest ingredients and most innovative mixologists. We’re testing drinks, and inventing new ones in front of a live (and well libated) audience. Check out MXLGY.com to sign up for the newsletter now and get in on all the fun!

– Untitled Star Trek Podcast (www.cc2k.us)

Captain Picard

Now that Star Trek: The Next Generation is streaming on Netflix the creative team behind CC2K.us and myself are sitting down to go episode to episode exploring the concepts presented in the TNG universe and the intricate coolness each episode has to offer. While it’s not exactly an alternate-commentary show, each episode follows along with an episode of the show in real time, so turn on your Netflix (and its sound down) and see if you can’t catch what gets us talking about one subject or another. We’re more than a review show too, because it’s not just about the episodes themselves but the persistent question: Is the world of TNG a good one that we should all aspire too?

– Tales of the Extraordinary (http://emptysea.net/tote/)

Tales of the Extraordinary

One of a few Radio Plays I do on a pretty regular basis. This project is the longest running and the one I have been with the least amount of time.

It’s really worth a look back through their catalog to hear what they do. I’m in VERY recent episodes as a slew of characters. Here’s a quick setting: The year is 1927 and the Roaring twenties are in full swing, filled with excess and adventure. Wondrous new discoveries take place on a daily basis, be they of lost civilizations or miraculous super-science. Anything seems possible. In Tales of the Extraordinary, anything is possible. Ancient mysticism, robotic automatons, masked vigilantes, or a chimp who thinks he’s the Great Gatsby.

Tales isn’t the way things were. It’ s the way they

should have been.

– The Blue Mojave (http://www.thebluemojave.com/)

Blue Mojave

Another radio play, this time in the 40s. I helped to re-invent Blue Mo in its latest incarnation. Listen for me as regular characters: Scotty Deak, Johnny Valley, Stephen Archer, and a bunch of assorted thugs and miscreants.

I also contributed a bunch to the writing of this 40’s detective story (with a twist) but mostly just write the humorous period advertisements we add between

the brakes. This is very worth your time, and there are new episodes most months.

– The pseudo-believable Adventures of DangerKatt (TBD)

The pseudo-believable Adventures of DangerKatt (TBD)

Growing out of a joke from myself and the folks behind the comic book imprint DangerKatt, this radio play that may or may not serialize is an exploration of a world even more fantastical than The Blue Mojave and Tales combined. In a universe of super science, aliens, intrigue, mystery, and saucers of milk left out suspiciously, the only man (cat) standing between evil and total domination of the world is DANGER KATT. He’s a master pilot, adventurer, marksman, science wiz, and lover… he’s also a regular size cat… and he can’t speak. Thankfully his travel companions speak cat, even if you don’t.

That’s it. Wow. That’s a lot. But if you like my voice… and we all know I do.

Well here is where to get it. They may not update consistently sometimes, or have perfect quality, but I love these podcasts like my children. So like most parents I’m living through them. Check out my kids er… podcasts… and be a part of something.

Something self-indulgent.

(on my part).
