Seasons greetings and welcome, to the Pure Mood Podcast episode 06! Erik and Zane discuss a variety of trivial topics sure to bore you to tears. This is the kind of self deprecating intro you could only get at the Pure Mood!
-Zane rewatches the entire X-MEN EVOLUTION series, and finds it to be surprisingly mature, dense and character focused. So, basically everything the ’90’s X-MEN: TAS wasn’t.
-Jonathon Hickman answered fans’ AVENGERS questions, and here’s what we thought about them!
-THE MAN OF STEEL trailer is here…do Erik and Zane see it as pretentious navel-gazing, or a sincere attempt at using the superhero genre to tell stories in an artistic sense?
-Erik’s turned the Pure Mood HQ into a Christmas Bonanza! He raves about the Polyphonic Spree’s HOLIDAYDREAM and Tracey Thorn’s TINSEL AND LIGHTS. And what’s at the top of The Pure Mood Christmas Wish list?
Zane finally gets to play the first MASS EFFECT as it comes to PS3. He reveals his thoughts on the first entry in the series, how it’s affected his view of the entire three-part story, and how playing through the game simultaneously with two separate characters turns the game into an interesting look at how subjective and malleable reality can be.
THE DEAD PENGUIN CLUB
In our literary supplement, Erik attempts to offer an uneducated view on a literary work in his continuing reviews of the Penguin Classics series, this time taking a look at Voltaire’s CANDIDE.
THE PURE MOOD MAIL BAG
And while digging through our mail bag, Erik and Zane answer reader Kris Amsel’s intelligent, well-informed comments and thoughts on Greg Pak’s use of the character Kidcrawler in X-TREME X-MEN.
