This article was written live during the show. As such it may contain significant factual errors. Over time it is hoped that these will be corrected.Craziness, insanity and pure random information coming right up.....
Mari will be back on the show again in the next week or so. They worked on their estiamated taxes again.
Glenn said he should never serve on a jury. If it was a celebrity of course they are innocent.
There is still stuff that Glenn cannot talk about yet.
Glenn signed up for Bebo today! Aps are becoming standard across all plaform. Glenn wants an ap that has a map with push pins to show places in Europe he wants to visit.
Glenn recommended the movie Mask with Eric Stoltz and Cher in it.
OpAphid was the first time in a while that Glenn has chosen to give his all to something. He has previously done it with journalism and music. You have to be happy with the decision you make in life and make the most of it. Life has its ups and downs. Glenn aspires to be a "good person".
Who would play Glenn in a movie?: Elden Henson: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0711805/
Glenn was at the Tenacious D show at the Roxy having procured a ticket at the door. Some dude yelled out "Elden". One of his friends had played the "headless stand in" on Idle Hands with Eldon Hensen.
"Elden Henson (born August 30, 1977) is an American actor. He is perhaps best known for playing Fulton Reed in the Mighty Ducks trilogy with Emilio Estevez, and playing Lenny Kagan in The Butterfly Effect."
Glenn's band Headbord played Mills College when it was all girls. There was a big banner saying "Lesbian Avengers"? What did it mean?
"Founded in 1852 and established in Oakland, California, in 1871, Mills College is an independent liberal arts women's college, with graduate programs for women and men. As the first women's college west of the Rockies, Mills is one of the oldest institutions of higher education for women in the United States. The College was initially founded in Benicia as the Young Ladies' Seminary under the leadership of Mary Atkins, a graduate of Oberlin College. In 1866, Susan Tolman Mills, a graduate of Mount Holyoke College (then Mount Holyoke Female Seminary) and her husband Cyrus Mills bought the school and moved it to Oakland. Mills received its charter in 1885 and introduced graduate degrees in 1921"
Flashback to Mills College (the Sarah Lawrence of the west coast). If you are playing at an all girls college don't be surprised about the jokes. Brendon, one of the band members liked to open doors and that is when they found the huge banner.
"The Lesbian Avengers is an activist group for queer women who want to promote lesbian issues and perspectives. The group aims to empower lesbians and all women to become experienced and effective organizers to take back their power and rights to live freely and unharmed. Since its founding in New York City by 6 longtime lesbian activists who had worked in different groups --Maxine Wolfe, Anne D'Adesky, Ana Simo, Sarah Schulman, Marie Honan, and Anne Maguire-- in May 1992, the group has worked mostly through direct action and street theater acts like fire eating. The British wing of the group was formed in 1992 by members of OutRage!"
:The Lesbian Avengers use the following slogans:
"The fire will not consume us — we take it and make it our own", (chanted while other Avengers are fire-eating)
"Be the bomb you throw", and
"We recruit" (referring to the societal fear that homosexuals 'recruit' children)."
There was another banner saying "Be the bomb you throw". Brandon wanted to steal the banners.
Glenn discussed the Queercore social movement.
Queercore "is a cultural and social movement that began in the mid 1980's as an offshoot of punk. It is distinguished by a discontent with society in general and a complete disavowal of the mainstream gay and lesbian community and what those involved believe to be its oppressive agenda. Queercore expresses itself in DIY style through zines, music, writing, art and film."
There are things that you can study about humanity. Dr. Drew would talk about how we are all unique but if you look at any other species in the animal kingdom how many polar bears would you have to study before you could say you understood them? Perhaps 100?
How many average females would you have to study before you could discover common themes in terms of their sexuality. People do not want to accept that you can more or less get some indications.
Glenn knew a lesbian who was also in love with him. You can make generalites about polar bears but people will not allow you the same freedom with humans. Compare it to Garage Band or Mr. Potato Head, where you have a lot of different variables and yet there are common themes. There might be 20-50 noticeable variants on the base track despite the fact there might be millions of actual unique variants.
When you play Rock Band or Simms you have to configure your character. It would be interesting to pretend you were making a game like that and you had to set up the psychological profile of the character based on their childhood experiences. You could probably narrow it down to 40 or less basic types. (eg, Dad did not stick around, Mom did not stick around, neither parent stuck around........). What variables affect your character?
Question: How does Glenn come up with the names for characters.
Sarah (Lonelygirl15) she was intended to be a slutty girl with issues whose parents neglected her. Molly was the chosen girl who was spoilt. In Loveline Sarah is the most ofter used "fake" name used by girls calling loveline. Glenn pitched it as an homage to Loveline but also as a Biblical reference
Molly: a soft name that projects innocence. In the comic book runaways their female character was called Molly but he thought it would work. Glenn told Miles that Lonelygirl15 is very similar to RunAways which has the "Staff of one". Cryptonesia, who knows? You can buy RunAways on Amazon.
Molly was cast as a red head but she backed out. (This was not Sam).
Aunt Alex: another runaways homage.
Rachel was also an biblical reference.
"Runaways is a Marvel Comics comic book series created by Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona. The series features a group of teenagers who try to make up for the evil done by their supervillain parents by becoming superheroes. They are commonly referred to as "the Pride's kids" or "those kids in L.A." by other characters in the Marvel Universe, due to the team's lack of an official name and the majority of Marvel's characters being based in New York.
In 2006, the series won the Harvey Award for best continuing/limited series.
In February 2007, series creators Brian K. Vaughan and Adrian Alphona left Runaways at issue #24 of the title's second volume. In April 2007, long-time Runaways fan Joss Whedon (of Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel and Firefly fame) signed up to take over the title for 6 issues. Marvel has announced Terry Moore, creator of Strangers in Paradise will take over the title after Whedon leaves, with Humberto Ramos on art.
"Molly Hayes - Daughter of evil telepathic mutants Gene and Alice Hayes. Mutant powers include super-strength and invulnerability. Use of her powers originally caused her to tire very quickly, but has increased her endurance against fatigue with repeated usage of her powers."
"Alex Wilder - Son of organized crime bosses Geoffrey and Catherine Wilder. Child prodigy at strategic thinking and planning. De facto group leader in vol. 1. However, it turns out that Alex was on the side of his parents rather than the Runaways by volume 1's conclusion. He is killed along with all of the Runaways' parents."
Glenn says The Turtles - Happy Together is in this top 100. It is timeless.
