OSMcast! The 2014 OSMawards Part I: Movies, TV Shows, and Video Games 2-5-2015

The 2014 OSMawards for most Awesome Video Games, TV Shows, and Movies. But in reverse order.

Oh snap! It’s time for the 2014 OSMcast OSMawards! AKA the not so much awards, more like we just talk about the stuff we liked from the last year. Since last time we did it in the order of Video Games, then TV Shows, THEN Movies, we decided to switch things up! Into reverse order!

So now it’s Movies, then TV Shows, and THEN a whole bunch of Video Games.

Although we kind of start with a video game. But ignore that! Actually… Don’t. Don’t ignore that.

We (and by we, we mean Basil) also complain about things that won’t let us give them money, and also not letting us give them the money on stuff we wanted them to! It’s a gas.


First of, the OSMcast will be at Kami-con, covering the whole dang joint. Fun times shall be had! If you see us around (probably at the Hamacon table), come say hello!

OSMcast! The Great Muppet Caper 7-14-2014

You probably watched this a bunch when you were kids, but you may discover that you never truly watched it at all! Ooooo deep.

So our last “normal” podcast about a movie reinvention of an old franchise. Therefore we decided to go back to an entirely different franchise, and talk about one of their earlier movies.

That franchise is Jim Henson’s Muppets, and that movie is 1981’s The Great Muppet caper, directed by Jim Henson and filled to the brim with muppets. Which make sense as it is a Muppets movie. With Jim Henson at the helm.

We also talk about being among wolves, shovels, knights, how to protect yourself against the mosquito menace, and even some Dragon Quest and Final Fantasy X|V: A Realm Reborn Minutes.

The 2013 OSMawards for most Awesome Video Games, TV Shows That Are Not Anime, and Movies, That Are Also Not Anime
The 2013 OSMawards for most Awesome Video Games, TV Shows That Are Not Anime, and Movies, That Are Also Not Anime

Lo and Behold we have returned. It is now the year of 2014. But 2013 had a lot of cool stuff in it, so we have brought back the OSMawards!

In the first part of our two episode saga of days past, we tackle the staple that is Video Gaming. From 3DS, to PS3, to 3DS, to 360, to Wii U, to 3DS, to PS4, to 3DS, we cover all the game that tickled our 2013 fancies. We then venture into the realm of not-so Japanese TV Shows, then wrap up with Movies.

We also talk about Space Dandy, fancy watches that tell you things, magical boards of water and ink, and more!

So much more, including possibly the end of Doug’s never working freezer?! STAY TUNED.

OSMcast! Pacific Rim 8-5-2013

Sorry folks there are no more blockbusters now, this one took all the blocks.

Well, when when we decided to podcast about monsters we created a monster podcast. Clocking in with 2 hours and change, the OSMcast returns with a rousing episode dedicated to Guillermo del Toro’s love letter all things giant, monster, and robot, the movie Pacific Rim.

We also talk about comments and emails and things! BUT NOT ONLY THAT, we also dig into Shin Megami Tensei IV, Shadowrun Returns, Free!!, The Eccentric Family, and more.

And by more we mean Overdrift, which will make more sense at the end than at  the beginning.

So strap in and get ready to drift into some OSMcast~


SO GO SEE THIS MOVIE ALREADY OKAY thanks a bunch folks.

As we said, Basil and Kevin will be at Otakon maybe we shall see you there! But at any rate, please feel free to send us comments, and emails, Facebook us, or whatever correspondence you like to send our way. We always appreciate it.

OSMcast! Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance 3-12-2012

Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance

And here it is, the long lost episode that is now  waaaaaay out of date, but still contains messages and meanings most  dire. And the message is all about Neveldine/Taylor’s Nicolas Cage-starring blockbuster of a Marvel film, Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. We also discuss other things, like Mass Effect 3, Street Fighter X Tekken,  Tales of the Abyss, Knights if the Old Republic, and Doritos tacos. Joining us on this epic take is Daryl Surat from AWO, Niko from CineGeek, and Basil’s buddy Caleb. Oh and I guess I was there, too.



Also, we are back! And we will have another episode… SOONER THAN YOU THINK!

Which considering how long it’s been since the last update, we have some leeway there.

But sooner!

OSMcast: Drive Angry 03-07-2011

The best movie of 2011 you probably never saw!

This podcast was in fact so angry, we had to let it cool down for an extra two weeks just so we could get it out here. It’s all about Nicolas Cage’s latest vehicle of awesomeness, Drive Angry. Always angry special guest Daryl Surat joins us for this drive-filled action packed people talking exciting episode of excitement. We talk about all sorts of things that seemed really important at the time! And quite possibly still do!


Sadly, as it turned out that even two eeks ago, Drive Angry was already out of our local theaters. It’s a real shame. But these things do tend to come out in home media form, so when it does, you should watch this film, 3D or no!

Also, Momocon has already happened, but it was fun! A good time was had by all. Next up on the OSMcast Road Show? MTAC! We’ll be present two lovely panels for your education and also possibly amusement! We’ll be rocking out with the Getting Your Anime Groove Back panel that was discussed IN THIS VERY EPISODE. And also, Anime’s Creepy Uncle, a Glance at Go Nagai, which may or may not have been mentioned, I can’t remember. Still, it’s gonna be fun. It’s gonna be crazy.

It’s gonna be awesome.

OSMcast: 2010 OSMawards! (Passive Edition) 01-10-2011

According to Lee: "The blue lines aren't because I drew it on notebook paper. They are in fact the enemy robot's barrier shield that the OSMrobo is ripping through."

As we all know, the first thing you do in a new year is to look back at the previous year, unless you have a decade to deal with. So to ring in 2011 we have got the first half of the 2010 OSMawards! In this just-shy-of-two-hours BEHEMOTH of a podcast we tackle the “passive” media of 2010. TV shows, movies, anime, novels, stuff you consume but don’t interact with… pretty much everything expect video games.  So strap in, get some nice hot cocoa a warmin’, and listen to us yammer for a while!

Bonus: And gaze up the MAJESTY that is OSMrobo that Lee drew while recording. His fists are fists of JUSTICE. And awesomeness.


Bonus props to Narutaki of Reverse Thieves for rising to the challenge letting us know her picks via Twitter to help us fill in the gaps! If you’s also like to your thoughts in on a particular subject before we record, just keep an eye out for Basil’s twitter feed. Usually the day of recording or so, he’ll be asking for input.

Speaking of asking for input, Basil was invited onto the Chainsaw Buffet podcast to further talk about the year 2010, which he did with gusto. Keep an eye for it!

OSMcast: Scott Pilgrim 9-13-2010

When in doubt, video games.

Running with a full four man crew the OSMcast! is BACK and talking about SCOTT PILGRIM. Vs, uh, I dunno, a bunch of stuff! We talk about the graphic novels by Bryan Lee O’Malley, the movie adaption of said graphic novels directed by Edgar Wright, as well as the video game that adapts from both those things made by Ubisoft Montreal. That’s a lot of stuff!

GET YOUR LINKS ON: Anime3000! Empire Building Architect Sean Russell is the man with the plan, and that plan is to have all sorts of podcasts and other sorts of crazy stuff for your perusal. From his A3K Panel and Bonus Round, Reverse Thieves’ The Speakeasy, and Josh Dunham’s Animēshon Podcast, there is a TON of stuff to listen to. A TON. (Also, a ton of links.)


I GUESS you could go see the movies, but really the best thing you can do is get you some of those BOOKS. Most of the bi ol’ booksellers of the land should have them thanks to to movie, or you could just order then from Amazon.

And sure, we have absolutely nothing to do with Anime Hell, but it's always, always a highlight of the show.

And hell, the Scott Pilgrim website even has the first few pages up from each book to check out if you are so interested. Or you could not, I guess! THE CHOICE IS YOURS.

And THIS WEEK. AWA. Anime Weekend Atlanta. MAN OH MAN. They even have a PDF OF THE SCHEDULE. It is filled to the BRIM with bombastic anime con panel goodness. And this year we actually are getting to help add to that gumbo of greatness, goulash of grandiose, guacamole of gloriousness. That anime con schedule of anime conisity.

The gameplay is as good as the plot is generic. That's Ys!
The OSMrenditions Panels of Power both happen on Friday. At 1 in the Special Events room in Kennesaw we’ll be having an Engrish Jamboree! Come celebrate politically incorrect racism as we laugh at Japanese people failing at the English language. Then at 4 in one of Panel Rooms (Galleria 104) we’ll be hosting the AWA Wild World of Sports (Anime).  I bet you’ll never be able to tell what we are talking about!

Of course, we could be making surprise appearances at other panels. Say for example at 3:30 on Saturday in Kennesaw there is a Podcaster roundtable, and we just happen to be a podcast! That podcasts a lot about anime! Hmmm! And also on Saturday earlier at 1:00 in Galleria 104 there is a Con DJing 101 panel, and we happen to have a DJ on deck, who tends to spin at anime cons… HMMMM.  And, as always, one can never tell when Basil is going to assault random con goers with microphones. Good times!
