05 - Am I an Artist and Travel Time

What is an artist? How do you know if what you create is good? Can you trust feedback? Even then, confidence in the work falters, that's why it's difficult to share written work.
Ward talks about the NaNoWriMo contest- writing a novel in thirty days. Ward's done it twice.
Ward extols the great prose of Cormac McCarthy and concedes that Dan Brown has great ideas.
Is wanting to travel a natural instinct or a nurtured desire? Can you teach someone to like traveling? Ward recounts an afternoon in New York and Eric has New York stories as a kid and where he's traveled as an adult. He considers himself a want-to-be Italian and would move to Italy in an instant if he won the lottery.
If you want baseball Hall of Fame baseball player Steve Garvey's autograph, perhaps you should throw a glove at him.
The top three this week, which cities do you want to see?
Ward's picks are Cooperstown, NY, Italy, and Hong Kong, China. Eric's picks are Sydney, Australia, Tokyo, Japan, and New York

04 - Movie Trilogies and Ghost Traps

We open the podcast discussing the rumored Fallout 4 release and a new spoof video involving the kid sized basketballs. Have you ever read Shel Silverstein?
My sidewalk project is nearly complete and I've already started building a kit picnic table.While I could add glow in the dark power, I probably won't due to cost. I made a Ghost trap last year that we talk about in relation to 3d printing and prop making.
We discuss the collaborative works of Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Edgar Wright known as the Cornetto trilogy. These are very detailed movies with layers of jokes that are easy to miss upon the first watch. This transitions into a discussion on Sly Stallone and his films. Are sequels ever better than the original?
The episode closes with our top three Tom Hanks movies

03 - Radio Drama and The Magic of Bojangles

We're still talking about our Pin It project. Why don't pedestrians know how to cross the street and why doesn't Bojangles deliver? We discuss Richard Linklater and his film Boyhood. The conversation leads to Birdman, to Michael Keaton, Bill Nighy and the IMDB Top 250 list.

Once we produced and directed an extremely small Christmas play (very tiny). We showcase our first radio drama, and close out the podcast with out top five Ethan Hawke movies.
