    The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Billy Van Zandt! (Season 5 Finale)

    The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Billy Van Zandt! (Season 5 Finale)

    It's so cool when I get to interview such creative and multi-talented people for my season finales, don't you think? Billy Van Zandt certainly fits the bill. His publicist Jian, who was also a HUGE help in setting up the interview, sent me a copy of his book, Jane, Get In The Car, which I read off my computer, so I can't call it a page-turner, legally...maybe a slow-computer screen scroll down, so you can enjoy all of the chapters? It's a fun read, regardless. The writing style of the book is like how Billy was in the interview-straightforward, funny, interesting, and entertaining. All of this made him an ideal guest for the podcast, too. It's chock full of stories that give you a great insight on the life of a tv writer. Trust me, you'll enjoy it. Maybe Billy will make a play out of it? Whatever he does next, I'm sure will be something to keep the masses entertained. Much thanks for coming on the show, sir!

    Next week, we wrap up Season 5 with a mini-episode....tune in, okay?

    The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Shannan Wilson! (featuring a bonus music track)

    The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Shannan Wilson! (featuring a bonus music track)

    It was a real treat meeting Shannan. As I noted in the episode, I was sort of expecting someone who can play dramatic, intense roles to be super- serious. Wrong!! She was the type of fun guest I love interviewing in The Screening Room. Somebody needs to cast this lady in a comedy, and stat! (She's already got a background in improvisation, anyway.) And when she becomes mega-famous, she'll already have known the ropes of QVC, so she can sell the Shannan Wilson line of clothing, guitars, or IV-drip ice cream. (Okay, maybe not that last one. It's what got me thrown out of "Shark Tank.") So, keep an eye open for "Halston" on Netflix, and check out "Sno Babies" on Amazon Prime, for a sampling of her dramatic chops. Or listen to one of her songs which is on Spotify and iTunes. Better yet, have a listen to one at the end of this interview!

    "I Know You Exist" is an original composition, which is played with Shannan's blessing (Thank you!)

    Cody Langley of "POPular Opinion" POPS in!

    Cody Langley of "POPular Opinion" POPS in!

    "I'm pretty Southern. You might need subtitles for me." So said today's guest. Hey, if Cody was able to understand me, I wouldn't need subtitles. I was surprised that I'd learn even more about Funko Pops, when I never even knew about them a few months earlier.  Cody's YouTube channel is very unique. He's a guy who certainly likes to have fun on camera, and with his guests. If I were playing "Wheel of Misfortune", I'd have to be very careful. Truth be told, I had a vowel-buying problem a number of years ago. But I'm much better. For now, anyway. But thanks so much for coming on, Cody!

    We're "Goin' Hollywood" with JD and The Ghost! (and I forgot to pack my bronzer!)

    We're "Goin' Hollywood" with JD and The Ghost! (and I forgot to pack my bronzer!)

    So, who do you usually discuss movies with? Your friends,right? Whether it's a debate or a dialogue reference, those are best saved for your buddies. Which leads to a natural creation of 'Goin ' Hollywood " by JD and The Ghost. It's two guys with a strong love of the cinema and all the joys it brings (or doesn't bring) us.  They were 2 guys that were definitely interesting to speak with. Plus, how often do I get to break out my bad Joe Pesci impression? Or will the Rebels say, "Look what you made him do!!??"Either way, thanks guys for swinging by!

    1/3 of the "Three Geeks Podcast" + 1/2 of "Mat Talk"=Jason Taylor!

    Okay, so I'm not really good at math! And considering my mic went kerflooey right before the interview, not good at technology either (Update: Thanks to the folks at Samson for helping me out after the episode was recorded. Awesome people!) But we got through the interview unscathed, so that's a plus! Jason certainly keeps himself busy with several podcasts. He's a guy who loves to share his passion with his listeners and his (varying amount of) co-hosts. Thanks for coming on the show, Jason. It was a VanDamme good time!

    The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Steven Jay Rubin!

    The Sherpa Screening Room: Meet Steven Jay Rubin!

    So, what could I, a sherpa who hasn't seen a single Bond movie, learn from the author of the encyclopedia of James Bond movies? A lot, apparently! Steve is a guy who has clearly done his homework, and knows how to share his passion(s) with an audience, whether in writing, or on film. Plus, he was so much fun to talk to, and we both broke out impressions from our respective toolkits. We recorded the episode before the unfortunate passing of Sean Connery (spoiler alert: Steve's favorite Bond)., but you can clearly see what a fan he is. Thank you so much for coming on the show Steve! Because of your visit, I now like my yak yogurt shaken...not stirred. (Well, it's a start.)

    Are you a fan, too? Here's an Amazon link to Steve's work:  https://www.amazon.com/s?k=steven+jay+rubin&i=stripbooks&crid=K3MBWHS5VOSM&sprefix=steven+ja%2Cpopular%2C161&ref=nb_sb_ss_ts-a-p_4_9
