Secrets of The Sire

We welcome the legendary Smashing Pumpkins front man on to discuss the early days as 90s rock stars, Star Wars and a possible Smashing Pumpkins reunion.

PLUS: We roll camera and cover the most important pop culture news around!

We’re on Amazon Alexa devices now! Look up “Spreaker Podcast Radio Player “ on Amazon and enable it on your Alexa device. Then “Alexa, open Spreaker” Then “Alexa, open Secrets of the Sire” – ain’t technology grand?

Here’s a snippet of the solo record talk that wasn’t on the clip:

MD: We all know the lineup changes that the Pumpkins have endured, with you essentially carrying on the mantle. So when I heard you were releasing a solo record, I was a little surprised. But then I heard the first single and it made sense. Tell me about the vibe on this record and what went into the decision to make this a solo record.

I was working on a follow up to the last Pumpkins album, Monuments to an Elegy and about half way through the record I kind of lost my mind and thought I can’t do this anymore. I just ran out of gas on Smashing Pumpkins music. So I wrote a batch of songs that ended up being the foundation for this record. I found if i just naturally let myself go where I wanted to go, more acoustic, less future rock. That’s how i ended up working with Rick Rubin and putting it under my name.

And I’m with you on that. Sometimes I question my own sanity because you get to a point in the world where, “what’s in a name?” If i write the songs and I sing it and I call it Billy Corgan or Smashing Pumpkins or I call it The Moon and the Stars it doesn’t feel any different to me. But people really perceive it differently. And it just felt right.

And I will say this, and it’s a positive-negative, I get tired of putting out Pumpkins music and then answering the question why should we accept this as Pumpkins if it doesn’t involve “pick your band member.” That gets old too. So I’m happy to do something that doesn’t have that kind of baggage. Here’s the songs I wrote, this is me, and if you like it that’s great.

MD: The sound you’ve seemed to purposely steer away from in the 2000s psychedelic quieter, heavy static guitar. I thought Oceania had that feel to it which is why i responded to it. Are you conscious of the Pumpkins sound when writing and recording? Especially in this case?

The record doesn’t have any drums. At the risk of sounding disingenuous I think I do better when i just go to where I’m interested musically and i don’t get involved intellectually. That’s the key moment for me at this part of my life. I was making a record called Smashing Pumpkins and I just wasn’t feeling it. So rather than saying I have to do this or I should do it or if I’m going to do it it has to sound like Siamese Dream 2 or whatever this intellectual overlay you can put on an idea, I’m just going to write songs and wherever those songs go and that’s what I’ll follow.=

MD: You mentioned working with Rick Rubin on it. What was his influence and whats the normal production on a Pumpkins record that made this different?

For the past ten years I primarily prodcued mysefl though I had help. With this, when i talked to Rick about doing the record, i said I’m just going to get out the way and be an artist for a change. Tell me when to show up and I’ll do my best and that’s what I did.

ABOUT OUR GUEST: TOM HUTCHISON

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

I am the founder, art director and publisher for Big Dog Ink and the writer/creator of Critter, Penny for Your Soul, Legend of Oz: The Wicked West, Kaiju Epic, Lights…Camera…Jungle! and Ursa Minor.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

Separating from Aspen Comics after three years, we are now returning to our roots and relaunching the BDI brand with Penny for Your Soul like we did 7 years ago. Our first two successful Kickstarters for Lights…Camera…Jungle! and Kaiju Epic! and the continued sales of our series back issues have shown us the world is still hungry for Big Dog Ink stories, and Penny for Your Soul is where we start our journey back. But we are also looking at some new projects beyond Penny, both as comics and as digital experiences using social media in new ways including something Im calling Shahrazad: Side Quests.

GOT A HOT TAKE? (Tell us the burning issues you’re dying to talk about)

Lets not get too negative lol I always have hot takes, but lets just say the retail side of things is a mess right now and totally over saturated with companies and product. It’s nearly impossible for all these books to find shelf space at the retail level, BDI was a Diamond Top 300 publisher multiple times in our first four years, but I think even we would be hard pressed to make that list again any time soon. So we are returning to focus directly on our customers and fans that have supported us and have waited so patiently for new product, and thats exactly what Kickstarter allows us to do.

Thursday (October 5, 2017)
Michael Rooker Spotlight: 2:30-3:30pm EST/7:30-8:30 BST (Main Stage 1-D)
Fresh from his turn as Mary Poppins/Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as well as having spent a considerable time as the redneck you’d love to punch, Merle Dixon, on The Walking Dead, Rooker is bound to have amusing anecdotes a-plenty and a few juicy behind-the-scenes tidbits to share.
American Gods: 6-7pm EST/11pm-midnight BST (Main Stage 1-D)
There are already so many questions swirling after that American Gods season finale – and this panel will be the place where (hopefully) some of those questions get answered. Three of the cast, Ricky Whittle, Yetide Badaki, and Pablo Schrieber will be at the panel, as well as appearing across all four days of the convention.

Friday (October 6, 2017)
Pacific Rim Uprising: 12pm-1pm EST/5pm-6pm BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
Immediately after Peter Capaldi’s panel comes the first marquee panel of NYCC 2017 from Madison Square Garden. It’s sure to be a wild ride as lots of the Pacific Rim sequel has been kept under-wraps until now. Expect a clip or two and John Boyega to also grace us with his presence. Are we ok to ask about Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Saturday (October 7, 2017
Star Trek: Discovery: 3:45-4:45pm EST/8:45-9:45pm BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
If an hour of laser-focused discussion and reveals surrounding Star Trek: Discovery sounds like your thing then Madison Square Garden is the place to be on the Saturday. Promising to be chock-full of appearances from cast, as well as executives behind the show, this is one panel not to be missed.

The Walking Dead: 7:45-8:45pm EST/12:45-1:45am BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
The Walking Dead season 8 brings Rick and the gang on the cusp of all-out war with Negan and his set of Saviours. Here’s hoping Saturday evening’s panel will shed some light on what’s to come, and just what the deal is with Old Man Rick. The cast, including Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Norman Reedus, and the brains (mmm, brains) behind the operation will converge to discuss all things Walking Dead for, probably, the event’s most interesting hour.

Sunday (October 10, 2017)
The X-Files: 1-2pm EST/6-7pm BST (Main Stage 1-D)
The truth is out there, and so is this panel discussing the upcoming second season of the X-Files revival. Mulder and Scully will both be there (let’s face it, Gillian Anderson is worth the price of admission alone) to discuss the exclusive first-look at the new ten-episode run premiering in January.

Spider-Man: Homecoming is the Highest Grossing Superhero Film of 2017

Thanks to its recent release in China, Spider-Man: Homecoming has now become the highest-grossing superhero film of 2017 so far, with an estimated $874.4 million under its belt, according to Box Office Mojo. Note that there are still two major superhero movies left in the year: Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok and Zack Snyder’s Justice League, both of which are poised to be big box office earners, so it’s entirely possible that Homecoming will be dethroned come year’s end.

 

Of course, one of the most talked about comic book films of the year has been Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman, starring Gal Gadot as the eponymous character. The DCEU installment surpassed all expectations to become the highest-grossing superhero origin film as well as the highest-grossing DCEU chapter domestically, while also blasting past several other milestones. Still, Spider-Man has consistently been one of the world’s most recognizable heroes and Homecoming‘s global box office performance proves just that.

Alexa Fox

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)
Alexa Fox likes to think of herself as a writer/creator, but really she’s a cat-herding wrangler who improves any project she touches. Whether it’s finding artists for other publishers, writing additional jokes, or doing a voice-over now and again, Fox gets it done and gets it done with panache. Despite her busy schedule, she always makes time to show new talent the ropes and buck up the industry’s old hands. The Fantastic Ms. Fox is the creator of Danger Gliders and she’s debuting her first animated short in the “My Life as a Monkey” series, season 1, secret episode 0, “Panic of the Apes”.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

My Life as a Monkey, more Danger Gliders coming very soon, and an adult cartoon series short in the works called Crime to Five (that she’s forcing Hassan to help with in the near future).

My Life as a Monkey is a kids’ show about a boy named Reese and his two best friends, Sam and Amy. Reese is like any other kid. Except that he’s a monkey… But he wasn’t always! One day while he was helping his super scientist mom in the lab, there was an accident. Mom tried to fix it but every attempt made things so much worse that when they finally got back to monkey, Reese decided he’d had enough, “Monkey’s fine. Monkey’s good! I’ll just live the rest of my life as a monkey.” And so it began…

While the show focuses mostly on Reese and his classmates, weird things have been known to happen in their town. Is the source Mom? Yes. Yes it is. Why would you even ask? She turned her son into a monkey!

Brina Palencia

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

Biff Tannen from Back To The Future vs Johnny From Karate Kid

PLUS: Is it panic time for the Star Wars franchise with the dismissal of Colin Treverrow?

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Tom Wilson (Back To The Future)

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)
His breakthrough role was the bully Biff Tannen in the 1985 film Back to the Future. He returned in the sequels Back to the Future Part II and Part III to reprise not only his role as Biff, but also to play Biff’s grandson Griff Tannen and great-grandfather Buford “Mad Dog” Tannen. His famous catchphrases include: “Hello! Hello! Anybody home? Think, McFly, think!”,[2] “What are you looking at, Butthead?”, “Say hi to your mom for me”, and “Why don’t you make like a tree; and get outta here”. In every Back to the Future film, he always ended up in a pile of manure (in reality, a pile of decayed sphagnum and other plant matters) when trying to kill or hurt Michael J. Fox‘s character Marty McFly. He reprised his role as Biff and voiced various Tannen relatives in the animated series. Wilson did not reprise his role as Biff in the initial versions of Telltale‘s Back to the Future: The Game released in 2011, being replaced by Kid Beyond. When the game was ported to the PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One in 2015 in commemoration of the original film’s 30th anniversary, Wilson returned to provide Biff’s voice in these newer versions.

Secrets of the Sire welcomes very special Game of Thrones expert Christina Dolce – my wife! – to help dissect the incendiary Season 7 finale and look ahead to some Game of Thrones Season 8 Theories. Is Tyrion a Targaryan? Is Bran The Night King? Will Jon Bang His Aunt Again?

PLUS: Hawkman and Avengelyne writer Mark Poulton joins us to talk about his new All-Ages comic The Pizza Tree

ABOUT OUR GUEST: Writer Mark Poulton (Hawkman/Avengelyne)

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

I am a professional comic book writer and children’s book author. I’ve written for DC Comics, Image Comics, and Arcana Studio. I produced the A Cat Named Haiku animated short for Top Buzz, and served as associate producer on Mythical Creatures, an animated pilot financed by the Canadian and New Zealand governments.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

My latest book is Pizza Tree, an all ages graphic novel that I co-wrote with my 7 year old son, Chase, based off an idea he had. It is published by Arcana Studio through my new creator-owned imprint, Artistacomics. The A Cat Named Haiku animated short was released earlier in the year and is doing well. It is currently being developed as a feature by Arcana Studio with Sean O’Reilly attached as screenwriter and director.

GOT A HOT TAKE? (Tell us the burning issues you’re dying to talk about)

Not sure if you discussed DC’s comment that the comic book industry is on the verge of collapse, but I think it’s just the opposite. I don’t think it’s ever been stronger. The level of quality from creators is at its highest. I was at the Arcana booth this year for SDCC and the two biggest draws were 10 year old Kiefer O’Reilly and my 7 year old son, Chase. The future of comics is in good hands. The talent pool has never been stronger. Readers now just have so many great choices to pick from. It’s almost like television complaining that ratings are down. That’s because there are so many ways to consume the product (cable, Netflix and other streaming services). Most readers don’t have an unlimited budget when it comes to comics. If an indie company is putting something great out that they want to start reading, chances are another book will get cut from the their pull list and I think you are beginning to see readers don’t need that Marvel or DC book they have been collecting for years anymore.

We also talked about the Joss Whedon scandal that hit last week.

Here’s an excerpt from the Podcast via: http://wegotthiscovered.com/movies/early-cut-justice-league-deemed-unwatchable-substantial-changes-made/#gallery-8

In a scathing essay published on Sunday for The Wrap, Cole, who recently divorced Whedon after 16 years of marriage, wrote that Whedon is a “hypocrite preaching feminist ideals.” Cole ― a producer and actress herself ― revealed that Whedon had both physical and emotional affairs with other women throughout their marriage, and blamed his actions on the pressures of the patriarchy.

Whedon has been lauded by the public as a feminist ally since he created the TV series “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” in 1997. Since then, Whedon has used his platform to talk about feminism and the importance of men getting involved in the movement.

According to Cole, Whedon had his first affair during their first year of marriage while he was on the set of “Buffy The Vampire Slayer.”

Poor Justice League. No matter how much good Warner Bros. does, the upcoming pic just can’t catch a break. Even after the smashing success of Wonder Woman, and a thrilling Comic-Con trailer for Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon’s team-up film that was very promising, negative buzz continues to surround it. That doesn’t change today, either, with a follow-up report coming in that expands a bit on what we heard last night.

To recap, yesterday we learned that Warner Bros. was apparently unhappy with a few things in Justice League. Namely, the tone – which they felt was too dark – and the portrayal of Cyborg. Now, Batman-On-Film has added onto that, telling us that the situation is much worse than it appears. Here’s what they had to say:

These reshoots – which are still taking place – are not standard pick-ups/additional photography. Why? Apparently, an early cut of the film was deemed “unwatchable.” Thus, substantial changes to the film were ordered.
