Episode 417 – The Reality is I Crave Cruising with Kevin Smith

We welcome Jarett back to the show! We discuss socializing rules in a society post shutdown. What is the new normal? (0:32) How does getting a new driver’s license work in Manitoba work these days and just how long does it take? (12:40) What is graduated driving? Can you use your car’s cameras to help parallel park?

What is Splat and Bone and what drunk purchase did Sean make? (17:00) Crave TV, IPTV, and streaming TV and the little tricks they play they play on you. (20:16) Will the next big release get your butt in the theatre or will you invest more time at home? (35:04)

Tom Cruise is at the top of the box office with Top Maverick, but is the movie as revolutionary as the hype would make it believe? (36:34) Tom Cruise has had a stellar career and went through a phase when people were tired of him. Which movies polarized people for him or against him? (43:59)

Ben Stiller who parodied Tom so expertly directed and wrote Reality Bites, a 90’s movie that tried to find the pulse of that generation and came with a killer soundtrack. (56:16) Movies such as Empire Records, Threesome and Almost Famous also came at that time. Jason Lee who played a role in the film got his start with the Kevin Smith film Chasing Amy. Soundtracks overshadowed Scores by composers but the ones like Harold Faltermeyer found a way to thrive. (1:13:32) And what about Steven Wright, with a key voiceover part in Reservoir Dogs that shone with such brilliance? (1:31:00)

Hi, I am Sean "SeanGeek" McGinity. And I am a geek. For me, the definition of the word geek comes from liking something so much, that I deep dive into it. Not just consuming it... but becoming it. I "geek out". Everything started with comics. I read them and studied them with a fine eye, and then started making my own. Since then, I have "geeked out" on movies (Star Wars The Evil WIthin, Hurt), music writing, recording, and performing (The Classic Embers and Dome), writing (the Symka comic and the upcoming Intuitives novel), and now... this Podcast.

Hey guys, SeanGeek here. Just to be clear, this is me geeking out on Todd "FastFretFingers" McGinity here. Todd is the GOAT. My brother is an established musician, mastering the Fretboard with a blistering discipline. If there was a guitar style, tone, pitch... Todd would find a way to replicate it. From his early days mastering Van Halen and Rush, his musical palate has expanded with forays into classical and flamenco, hard rock, blues and pop. From live performances to learning the recording process, when it comes to music, he has done it all.
