Already our eighth show is upon us and Adam with myself find ourselves discussing Ridley Scott's Prometheus for the first 40 minutes. So if you don't want to be spoiled, you can skip ahead (I employed the use of chapters in this episode for those who want to jum ahead), but we basically go over some of the plot points and reviews for this new take on the Alien mythology. Once we're satisfied we briefly round up the show with some extra WWDC discussion and some critiqing of the superhero films that happen upon us soon.

Show Notes:

A rather laid back podcast to reunite us after a long break. Adam has no excuse however next week.

This episode we talk about WWDC, Instacast, Once Magazine, Paul Noble along with learning a language and Jonathan runs through his list of the podcasts he listens to. While an After Show is mentioned, there isn't one, the recording doo hickey wasn't running at 88mph and we didn't have a bolt of lighting handy either so what we talked about wasn't recorded, but it will be saved for a future show.

Show Notes can be found at jonathanjk.com

Episode Music by Quinton (Radiohead Kid A and OK Computer in 8bit).

SPOILERS are in this episode. Duh!

"Don't get up there's more" said the usher after the movie had ended.

Jonathan thought at the last moment; that Adam is visiting and there are five of us together who set out to watch this movie. Why not celebrate the awesomeness that is the 'Avengers' and do a special roundtable discussion about it. We've come straight from the cinema (whole 2 minutes from my apartment) and unloaded into the laptop we're surrounding. This is very raw and uncut so expect plenty of spoilers and hilarity coming from us. You have been warned. Considering it was recorded with just the MacBook Pro mic, it's pretty good, enjoy!

In our 5th show, Jonathan Morris and Adam Hale discuss Star Wars Machete (again), the Red Letter Media movie review website, the soon to be released Avengers movie with a defence of Captain America, Wired's article on iPhone battery savings, a ranty discussion for and against televised wrestling which turns into some nostalgia as well.

Welcome to our fourth podcast, in this episode Alex and myself discuss Instagram; with it's recent purchase by Facebook and Instagram's growing role within Photography and Photojournalism. We also spend discussing Alex's move to Canada and what are his first impressions and we reflect on KONY2012 and compare its media attention to similar projects (like Aaron Huey's: American Natives Prisoners of War TED talk & TED wish) that haven't been given the same attention they should deserve, especially when they are closer to home.
