Since Mr. Green is off enjoying himself at the Toronto After Dark Film Festival. Mr. Green has provided a replacement for the evening and it’s not necessarily one that Andrew’s all that excited about. Making her return to the program, multi-genre musician (and Andrew’s traditional adversary) Leslie Hudson joins for the whole hour. Leslie’s got a new Star Trek-themed album that’s just weeks away from release as well as a brand new blog, AspieSpeak (from behind the eyes of an Aspie).
Our review of The Accountant starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick, J.K. Simmons . Synopsis: Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) is a mathematics savant with more affinity for numbers than people. Using a small-town CPA office as a cover, he makes his living as a freelance accountant for dangerous criminal organizations. With a Treasury agent (J.K. Simmons) hot on his heels, Christian takes on a state-of-the-art robotics company as a legitimate client. As Wolff gets closer to the truth about a discrepancy that involves millions of dollars, the body count starts to rise.
We also talk with concept artist and cartoonist Nicole Chartrand. She chats with us about Shattered Starlight, one of two webcomics she currently produces weekly. Shattered Starlight is the story of Farah Shaughnessy, a former magical girl who used to protect Montreal from the forces of evil. It’s been a decade since those days and she’s now just trying to make it through her twenties like so many others living a big city. But just when she thought she was out, magic pulls her back in. Nicole Chartrand is a concept artist in the game industry by day, and a comic creator by every other waking moment pretty much. She has a lot of feelings about video games, comics, manga, anime and fantasy/sci-fi novels. She lives in Montreal with her spouse, is probably drinking coffee right now and will definitely talk your ear off about Bloodborne if you give her half a chance. She also draws and writes the fantasy adventure webcomic Fey Winds, which also updates weekly! Check out Shattered Starlight today.
It was a great show!
