Binary System Podcast – Oscar Nominations Fan Art

As one-half of the podcast is on the road this week we decided to have another fan-art gallery as this week’s “episode.” And since we’re in the middle of playing catch up with Oscar-nominated movies, we’ll showcase some art that’s inspired by the movies we’ve actually seen.

Binary System Podcast #102 – Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049

Binary System Podcast #102 – Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049

The Binary Podcast team may not see the latest blockbusters on opening night. Or opening week. Or the week after that…

Okay, so maybe it takes us a while to get around to things. But we make up for it with almost an hour of fangirling.

Listen in as we spoil all the things and talk about Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049. Sure we discuss Amazon warriors and angsty replicants, but then we wander down tangents like American Horror Story, San Diego versus Los Angeles when it comes to the “Who’s Going To Turn Into A Garbage Dump First?” question, CGI super jumps, eating bugs voluntarily, and existentialism regarding existence after death and pragmatism versus faith. No, really, we do. But we also talk about pretty superheroes having sex, so there’s a balance.

Binary System Podcast #101 – WTNV #116: Council Member Flynn Part 3

Binary System Podcast is back on schedule this week (meaning we’re a week behind with our recaps. “Running behind” is the new “on schedule,” all the cool kids say it’s so.) Listen in as we discuss crime and finances in Night Vale, and wonder what exactly are the rules for Naked Uno. (Probably the same rules as Naked Anything Else.)

Also tune in next week for a spoileriffic podcast as we talk all about Wonder Woman and Blade Runner 2049!

Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast is celebrating 100 episodes! Well, not counting 20 or so recorded before we started calling them Binary System, plus some bonus episodes here and there, the odd fan art collections…you know what, it’s not important, happy one hundredth episode!

The plan was to record a retrospective of our favorite moments of the last one hundred (..or so..) episodes, starting with our favorite Night Vale episodes, our favorite Weather music, and our favorite fangirl “eeeeeee” episodes like Arrival, Sherlock, and Star Wars (plus a few “arrgh!” moments with Walking Dead.) But of course there were tangents into Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, Friday the 13th the Series, American Horror Story, Saga, and Transformers, because of COURSE Transformers. 

Thanks for listening in! And if you’ve got a plan for what our next 100 episodes could be about…you’re more organized than we are!

Binary System Podcast #82 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 3 “Abandoned Places”

This week we tried to recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead, but it’s this really atmospheric episode that doesn’t do well as a recap (it’s like trying to verbally describe an excellent sunset: you kinda had to be there.)

So we gave that up and talked about Only Lovers Left Alive (and strategic side-butt), the new trailer for Bladerunner 2049 (and how Jóhann Jóhannsson is doing the music and yes to all that), the upcoming Twin Peaks season and the book The Secret History of Twin Peaks and (*pushes glasses up*) the difference between an epistolary history and an oral one. (*Grins at you over the glasses.*) Heh. We said oral.

Lost in Sci-Fi: Episode 23: Blade Runner

This week the team talks about AI that becomes self-aware, especially in the Blade Runner film. We talk about they hows and why within the film and how Ridley Scott visuals are still so amazing. We also talk some Disney AI, some Star Trek and say good-bye to Anton Yelchin. The young actor who’s life was taken away far too early.  Read On

Ex Machina – What is alive?

Ex Machina – What is alive?

There are only a handful of films that I grant the title of “mind expanding,” even fewer that stand can stand the test of time. While Ex Machina certainly receives the title, I was more intrigued by the question it proposed. How do you go about testing artificial intelligence? More so, how do you determine what’s alive and what are the boundaries that holds something back from becoming human.

Now the term human doesn’t necessarily dictate the species or genome. So, more or less, what defines us as human? What characteristics would we deem as necessary to becoming such?

One of the joys of science fiction is its ability to challenge us in how we perceive a certain situation, and the whole robot uprising is a very classic genre. But what defines human nature and how do you test this?

Pixelated Podcast Ep.029 – Blade Runner was meh

I have finally watched one of the many legitimate “man movies” that I am supposed to have watched in order to have a “man card.”  Blade Runner was considered and hyped to be a great movie, as said by our friend Joe the Peacock and the rest of the Podcast cast. Well, my thoughts on it was “meh.” I’m sorry. It wasn’t any good. Listen to the podcast to hear how it all went down as well as other stuff we talked about.

Btw, this coming Monday night will be Nostalgia day on the podcast, as suggested by our awesome fan, Link. Be there for some old school fun!
