America, I get it. You’re hard up for heroes in an election year when your choices are The Nineties: Part 2 and a racist pomegranate. But seriously, these clowns on an oil rig ain’t it.
And you can watch the trainwreck of missed opportunity and shame (not to mention vertical filming) here:
Over the past couple of years I’ve been drifting away from film and more towards words and pictures in the form of novels and comic books. My creative process has followed this path as well, with more interest in writing short stories and comics, and even trying my hand at drawing, to mixed results.
One of the keys to procrastination (which is a constant whatever the medium you’re working in) is looking for inspiration on the internet, and the first such quote comes from Robin Bougie, the guy behind the Cinema Sewer zine (made here in Vancouver, don’t click the link if bewbs offend you.)
In an attempt to keep being creative, I’ve been looking into making comic books. However, my drawing skills are (at this point) minimal at best so I’ve started putting together photo comics using objects I have at hand. Unsurprisingly, that means Doctor Who action figures are being drafted to comedic effect, as seen below:
Here’s the final episode of Video Free Skaro for your enjoyment. It’s much longer than the usual episodes and it’s chock-a-block full of interviews, action figure shenanigans and other goodness!
And if you’d like a breakdown of how and why we made it and why we’re finishing up with it, read on.
It’s nerdlesque insanity at Video Free Skaro this week, with a peek at Geeks After Dark, the raucous monthly event featuring nerds, booze, burlesque and costumes. This month’s theme was Star Wars, with many a sexy Ewok and Hawaiian shirt clad Boba Fett in attendance.
We interviewed Fairlith Harvey, the organizer of Geeks After Dark, as well as her co-conspirator Cam Russell.
But that’s not all, we’ve also got news from Comic-Con! Truly, it is a great time to be a nerd.
On this episode of Video Free Skaro, we profile “Mind My Brains, Darling!” a webseries made in the style of “Are You Being Served?” and other British comedies of the Seventies, but with zombies. We also debut “Tom Baker Tonight,” an exciting foray into late night variety programming by a tiny, maniacal Tom Baker action figure. All this and the latest news, reviews, and superfluous pictures of Jenna Louise Coleman!
On this episode of Video Free Skaro, not only do we have an interview with noted Doctor Who and Y the Last Man artist Pia Guerra, not only do we have a profile of the Myrka, the most despised villain in all Whodom, but we also have action figures making out. Yep, you read that right.

A new Platformer, and a new host! Chelsea Altice takes over from Warren to give us the news and generally make the show better. We also have an interview with Atimi software about their Vancouver Canucks app, which gives hockey fans constant updates, behind the scenes videos and access to interactions with fellow fans. And just so you have answers for your grandmother when she signs up for Instagram, we have a walkthrough of the basic features of the app. Enjoy!
