My fellow Talking about Walkers podcast mate Olaf Barbosa enjoying a beautiful day in Atlanta for the Walker Stalker Con . This is the first Walking Dead convention and it was thrown by podcasters James and Eric of the Walker Stalkers! Olaf and I attended the panels for Giancarlo Esposito, Andrew Lincoln and Danai Gurira moderated by Jason and Karen of the Walking DeadCast. This is the first round of photos and videos from day two! We had a blast and hope they can throw another next year!

Talking Hell On Wheels Podcast

I'm currently doing an additional podcast with my co-host Kinte from Talking About Walkers on the AMC show Hell On Wheels. We decided to do the Hell On Wheels podcast because there was hole in the podcast game representing the show. We've been fortunate to be able to get many actors from the show to come on and chat with us and other fans of the show. I'm going to start posting links to our shows so visitors to my page can keep up with another hobby I have. This past Saturday we interviewed Victor Slezak who plays Ulysses S. Grant on Hell On Wheels and has had over 30 years of experience in acting and theatre. You can here the interview here: Talking Hell on Wheels chat with Victor Slezak.

Podcasting the Dead and Breaking Bad while going to Hell On Wheels!

I hope all has been well for everyone over the summer, it's been the mildest summer we've seen in a while and I can't complain.....that much. Let me start off by admitting that my Once Upon A Time Peter Pan Theory has been shot to hell, at least partially .  However, the fall is among us and the smell of tailgating and NFL football is among us and I couldn't be happier! Not only that, The Walking Dead is coming back on October 13th and I'm going to be a part of the podcasting community with my homies Kinte and Olaf hosting Talking About Walkers every Monday night at 9/EST. I'm sure everyone has seen the Comicon trailer and if not here you go! This trailer make the first arc look real interesting!

But lets not forget what hits this Sunday at 9pm, Breaking Bad is back baby!!!  Percy Bysshe Shelly's poem Ozymandias fits the rise and eventual fall of Walter White a.k.a. Heisenberg! I couldn't be more excited to see how this story ends!

What makes this weekend even more raw is the two hour season 3 premiere of Hell On Wheels on Saturday!! This is going to be an epic TV weekend! Check this out!!

I left out NFL preseason football on purpose, because it stinks! I'll update the blog after the jump off this weekend and give my thoughts on the shows! Feel free to leave your own feedback!

My Once Upon A Time Theory from the season 3 finale!

I think it's a possibility that Peter Pan was actually Felix the one who said “It may take time, but Peter Pan never fails.” at the end of the show, he could have just been speaking in the 3rd person about himself. Remember when the Lost Ones were searching the ship and Felix warned Hook who was "new to this land" of what "He" does to people who lie to him. Hook responded by saying "I gather it hurts" and Felix responds by saying "it does" and telling him about the pain associated with having your shadow "ripped right from your body". How would Felix know if it was painful unless it happened to him? Maybe he's Peter Pan and that was his shadow that was trying to take the Darling boys and Bae to Neverland. I have a feeling there is someone who is more diabolical in the wings and it's not Peter Pan. On Hooks ship when Mr. Gold said Tamara and Greg were just pawns and there was a power they couldn't comprehend, Emma asks him who and Gold didn't say Peter Pan, he just said nothing. Lets be real, Peter Pan just doesn't seem like a character Mr. Gold would be scared of. It would be awesome if Peter Pan was right in our faces the whole show, and the show ends with him confirming it and it totally went over most peoples head. Even if it turns out Felix is not Peter Pan, I still think the shadow belongs to him. This shows going to make my head explode! You can watch the episode here on ABC's website.

New Years Eve 2013 comes in with a Nola BLAST!

As my mind settled in from pre NewYears eve festivities, the crew and I headed out to enjoy Nola's cuisine and vibes before the fireworks at midnight. We decided to have some drinks at a dive bar and then head to the delightful Royal House Oyster Bar to fill the guts before heading to the water to watch the fireworks. Walking to the bar and enjoying artwork in the French Quarter we ran across "The violin lady" on the corner blazing up some inspired tunes that quickly garnered an audience.

After some head bobs, a few tips and smiles, we made our way to the Royal House. During our 15 minute wait to get seated we were treated to a wedding march!

The first thing that blessed the table were the crawfish patties, they were light, flavorful and resting on a lake of house sause. I could have easily eaten four of these po boy style.

Next up was an oldie but goodie, oysters on the half shell in all their brined goodness. This worthy appetizer (or main dish depending on your level of gluttony that day) is accompanied with lemon, horseradish and a spicy house sauce. You won't know whether to laugh or cry with joy, so I recommend you do both and go to town on these goodies.

After some good laughs that were made harder with wine, I played it conservative with the shrimp platter and cole slaw. The shrimp, hush puppies and fries ended up being a great decision because it was good beer drinking food.

Party pit stop and then on to the water!!!!

And then I realized..

Better get to the main event.

We survived.

2013 arrives in New Orleans.

A sure fire way to have a good time bringing in the new year is in the party city of New Orleans. This city has more good music on the street corner that some places have in their own towns or cities. I mean after a year of politics that ended in one side looking like this:

And another side looking like this:

You have a guy who looks like this:

Who predicted this all along with basic math:

Glad that's over, now lets talk about the issues we love like good food and good drink in New Orleans!
In a warm up of things to come we got acquainted with the lovely Eudora Welty and Deep Soul at the Balcony Music Club. This is a cozy bar with good people and good vibes, you can easily get caught up in the vibe and totally leave there trashed. Here's a little Deep Soul to cleanse your palette. 

After a little pre New Years Eve music and drink for the soul it's time to hit up the The Irish House Pub and Restaurant  for a Muggivan burger. This burger was pure goodness topped with cheddar, bacon, coleslaw and a fried egg, served with housemade chips.

Look who made and appearance at the Irish House, a gauntlet of Bushmill whisky to wet down that Muggivan. The Bushmill gauntlet from left to right: Bushmills, Bushmills Black Bush, Bushmills Honey, Bushmills 10, Bushmills 16. The Black Bush and Bushmills 16 were my favorites. If you love whisky, treat yourself to a Bushmills and get your head straight!

To say that the night ended pleasantly was an understatement.
