Caught up with author, Amanda Louise, who has been working on her inspirational debut book ‘Be the Black Sheep’!! Had a great time reminiscing about our university days in Hervey Bay, and didn’t realise just how much that time shaped our lives!! We have both retained so many of the lessons learned when we were studying mass media & public relations over 13 years ago(!).
Spoke about what lead Amanda to the exploration and promotion of the ‘Black Sheep’ lifestyle, and why she decided to write the book. We then had a chat about a few of her inspirations, including Walt Disney, Tony Robbins, and Tim Ferriss (author of ‘The Four Hour Work Week).
Amanda has done all the research and ground work for her readers, including attending motivational US style motivational conventions run by Tony Robbins, and the Aussie women’s creative conference, 9 to Thrive. We discussed our shared passion for helping people, and being a part of positive communities!!
Amanda has been working on her social media presence, providing videos, live streams, interviews, and posts designed to help people overcome fear, visualise success, and most of all, that it is ok to be different. Make sure to check out ‘Be the Black Sheep’ today!!
PARTY TIME!! Join Oliver, Jacob, Jeremy, Felix, Claire, Shaun, Liam, Ray, Krishna & Brad as we chat about what everyone has been playing, watching & reading in the last month!! We also had a bit of a chat about the upcoming Venom movie and whether it should be PG or R rated!! Also, we sung Happy Birthday to Paul at the end!! ^__^
Caught up with one of our best comic con friends, Paul Eiding, to chat about his latest projects!! Chatted about his voice acting role as Reflux in Incredibles 2, working with his family and theatre friends to make massively viral videos (and fund raise for LA park conservation projects!), and the highs and lows of his venture into the world of comic book writing on Blastosaurus, with New Zealand artist, Richard Fairgray.
We also spoke briefly about his voice acting role as Perceptor in the original Transformers cartoons, as Grandpa Max on Ben 10, and his work in video games such as Snake from Metal Gear Solid, the ‘Vault-Tec’ guy from Fallout, the ‘arrow to the knee’ guy from Skyrim, the ‘construct additional pylons’ guy from Starcraft etc etc etc (too many to mention in one pod!). Forgot to chat about his role as Pa Kent in upcoming DC animated movie The Death of Superman… oops, hopefully he will let us call him back another time soon!!
Was lovely to catch up, and we very much appreciated Paul taking time out of his busy schedule to chat to us about all his exciting creative projects!!
Knights of the round table discussion this month with Amanda asking ‘What was the first movie you ever saw/saw at the cinema?’ & ‘Which movie are you looking forward to most of all the trailers that are out at the moment?’ (Deadpool 2, Infinity War, The Meg, Jurassic World 2, Super Troopers 2 etc etc). Free Comic Book Day plans & the state of comic shops in Australia, Action Comics #1000 non-spoilery review & history, & the usual fun pop culture chats!
Thanks to Jeremy, Jacob, Ray, Brad, Sean, Krishna, Nat, Jeffery, Leon, and everyone else who came along to this month’s Brisbane Pop Culture Meetup!! Thanks for stopping by, and tuning in!!
