    Chatting Video Games & the Creative Process with Kyle Nicolaides from Beware of Darkness

    Alternative rock band Beware of Darkness' Kyle Nicolaides is a huge geek. Citing video game music as one of his introductions into loving music and wanting to be a musician, we talk some of his favorite soundtracks. Kyle was kind enough  in this episode to get down into the nitty gritty about what's it's like to create music with and without depression.

    Kyle is also no stranger to being apart of video game history. The band's 2013 single, "Howl," has been featured on Saints Row IV, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, EA Sports UFC and Gran Turismo. After three years, the band is back with their latest single “Bloodlines.” “Bloodlines” was recorded in Los Angeles at Kingsize Sound Labs with producer Braden Merrick and mixed by David Sardy (LCD Soundsystem, Nine Inch Nails, Rage Against The Machine). In addition to multi-instrumentalist Kyle Nicolaides, the track boasts special guests guitarist Jeff Schroeder (Smashing Pumpkins), bassist Mark Stoermer (The Killers) and drummer Jon Safley (CRX, Bleached).

    Celebrating NY with On Location Tours and Mike Dolce

    There’s no better way to celebrate New York then by talking about our experiences with On Location Tours. Joining Laura of The Geek Chic Elite this episode is Mike Dolce, of the Secrets of the Sire Podcast. He was kind enough to invite me on the Secrets of the Sire podcast a few weeks ago to talk about Jane Foster as Thor in Taiki Watiti’s upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder Movie and some other hot takes on the X-Men and Agents of SHIELD. Mike will be at NYCC at booth #1042, so drop in and say hello. Secrets of the Sire can be found on all major podcasting platforms, including Apple and Spotify, and you can find him on social media with his Twitter @Sire_Studios, Instagram @sirestudios, and on Facebook. The website is: https://secretsofthesire.com.

    Mike and I spoke with Georgette Blau, the president and CEO of On Location Tours. On Location Tours is celebrating its 20th year and for the past two and a half years has delighted nerds and visitors aplenty with its Super Tour of NYC, which visits more than 40 locations. If you’re local to New York, like Mike and I, or, if you’re visiting for New York Comic Con or for any other reason, you can rest assured that there are plenty of dates to go on this tour and not just see iconic nerdy NY scenes, but the ones that have colored your comic books, televisions and silver screens for decades.

    On Location Tours can be found on https://onlocationtours.com, on Facebook as On Location Tours, on Twitter as @OnLocationTours and on Instagram as @Onlocationtours too. 

    At the end of my chat with Mike and Georgette, I’ve also included my talk with my wonderful guide Chris, who is a passionate and incredibly knowledgeable nerd who just wants to share the love. Thanks once again to Mike of the Secrets of the Sire podcast, and to Georgette, Chris and On Location Tours for making this episode possible.

    Chris Jaymes Talks Sons of Chaos with the GCE

    Chris Jaymes Talks Sons of Chaos with the GCE

    The Geek Chic Elite Podcast spoke with Chris Jaymes this week on his new graphic novel, Sons of Chaos.

    He’s written, produced, directed and acted in a number of projects including Lost, Netflix’s Bad Samaritans, The Human Common and Boxing Day. But his latest venture pulls upon the spirit that’s made movies like 300, and tv shows like Game of Thrones so popular. Penning his first graphic novel as a joint venture for IDW Publishing and Penguin Random House, Chris Jaymes goes down to the heart in exploring the Greek War of Independence in Sons of Chaos.

    Sons of Chaos is a sprawling 192 page graphic novel with complimentary art by industry veteran Ale Aragon. I spoke with Chris on the day the book was released into the ether about the present-day implications of this war that took place 200 years ago, it’s modern day current event counterparts and the writing process.

    Comic Book Portfolio Reviews with Tom Akel at Keystone Comic Con

    Comic Book Portfolio Reviews with Tom Akel at Keystone Comic Con

    Of the many incredible things you can see or do at a comic convention, having a portfolio review by an industry professional is one of them, but it can be a very daunting task for the prospective creator. The GCE spoke with Line Webtoon's Head of Content Tom Akel at the inaugural Keystone Comic Con about how to prepare and what to expect with the portfolio review process.

    You may have to adjust your volume throughout the podcast as we were sitting next to an active wrestling match at the convention so the audio does become a bit crazy at times.
