We are joined by Valentin Ramon (co-creator of D4VE and Hot Damn) to first help us remember the movies of the past that could’ve benefited from practical effects in our Retro Roundtable. Suggested by one of our Patreon backers, we dig deep and call out all of these movies who should’ve known better than to ever go the way of CGI. Come in and see if we name the one you’re thinking of.

Then we turn our attention to Valentin and talk about Z: A Worldless Graphic Novel.
Z is a 96 B/W pages graphic novel with a morning glory hardcover ONG (14,5 x 21 cm landscape).
Z is a wordless book. No more room in the world for meaningless words.
Z is a funny book. A visual dystopian metaphor inside a song without lyrics, a lonely scream on the sea of human stupidity inside a silly book.
Z is a nihilistic detective of sorts. Think the Batman of the 40’s but naif.
Z is a personal view about the origins of terrorism. Expect some government conspiracies, diabolic corporations and religious blindness.

Comic creator, and classic video game lover, Scott Schmidt returns to the show to first help us once again look back into pop culture’s past in this week’s Retro Roundtable. It was this week in 1998 that Disney’s Animal Kingdom first opened to the public, and being a podcast full of video game lovers, we decide to remember our favorite Disney video games. Of course we all think of Nintendo’s Ducktales when thinking classic Disney games, but how about games like Aladdin or Lion King that obviously paved the way for other games that Disney didn’t create. Get in here and see if we name your favorite.
 
Then we turn our attention to Scott to talk Final Street. Coming off a successful Kickstarter, Final Street is about a month away from being on the shelf in your local comic shops! Welcome to the world of Final Street, a place where roving gangs of street thugs and clans of killer ninja prey on the weak and innocent, where martial prowess and brute strength are the law of the land.
Final Street takes its inspiration from retro beat'em-up video games like Double Dragon, Final Fight and Streets of Rage. Each issue is designed as a "stage" in which the main characters fight through waves of enemies, eventually coming to a "boss" for an epic showdown. Be sure to grab a copy this June!

We are joined by comic creator Ryan Burke this week to first help us look back into pop culture history in the Retro Round-table. It was this week in 1983 that Tokyo Disneyland first opened to the public, so we discuss amusement parks. From our personal experiences to the parks Disney have abandon, this is a conversation that will get you hyped for your upcoming summer vacation!

Then we turn our attention to Ryan and talk about his Kickstarter for his comic Coronary, running until May 4th. Described as Black Mirror meets Romeo and Juliet, Coronary takes a look at how the world might be affected if plastic surgery was free to anyone who wanted it. This is a gorgeous comic you won’t want to miss out on. Head to the link below to show your support and get your copy of Coronary!

We start this weeks episode by first looking back into pop culture history in our Retro Round Table. It was in 2002 that The Osbournes first premiered on MTV , so we discuss reality television. The Osbournes not only introduced reality television, they changed TV forever! As a result, the way shows are filmed, the way we view them, and even who we consider celebrities has changed. Get in here and see how deep its influence runs! 

Then we welcome Mohamed Abdel Khalik to the show to discuss his comic Tut in Fruits of Labor! Tut in Fruits of Labor is an adventure graphic novel set in Ancient Egypt that follows a clumsy teenager trying to find his place in the world. Circumstance finds him advising the king, locked in a tomb, befriending mummies, and crossing swords with evil deities on the Nile. Be sure to check it out!

We are joined this week by comic writer/ artist Ashley West as we first look back into pop culture history in this weeks Retro Roundtable. It was this week in 2006 that iTunes sold its billionth music download. So we discuss the impact of the digital music era and how it’s changed not only the music industry, but changed the ways we listen and how we interpret music. If you have fond memories of buying cassettes or CD’s, this is an episode you won’t want to miss!
 
Then we turn our attention to Ashley and discuss her comic Velthaneus, running on Kickstarter until March 4th. Thane, our main man, a prisoner fettered by the constraints of Terapin, a towering stronghold, dwells in the bottomless Karstian Cavern teeming with monstrous trogs. When he escapes purgatory with the power of raw id, the source of impulse within all verthians, will Thane liven up the streets of Karst with a new party trick, or lose his mind to the same destiny that swallowed the city nearly three decades prior? Go to https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/293079565/velthaneus-the-first-chapter-a-sci-fi-comic and show your support before March 4th!

We welcome comic creator John Dudley to the show this week to first help us look back into Pop Culture history in our Retro Roundtable. This week in 2005, YouTube first went online, so we talk about the influence the website has had on the world. People have found world wide embarrassment, fame, prosperous careers, and hours upon hours of entertainment! Let us know what your favorite YouTube video is on Twitter. 

 
Then we turn our attention to John and talk about his comic Packs of the Lowcountry. Bastion is tired of hiding from the monsters that conquered the planet. He wants to be a hero. Unfortunately, he's jumping into a story-in-progress that may not have room for his heroic ideals. Mysterious inhuman powers and bloodthirsty creatures may prove to be the least of his concerns. Brace for impact, Bastion. You're screwed. Check out the soundtrack at https://soundcloud.com/don-cardenas/sets/packs-of-the-lowcountry-soundtrack !

What If… Science Fiction Inspired Technology? Well of course it did, but to what extent? We welcome Greg Smith to the show this week to help us look at some of the items we use in our day to day lives and see if their origins are rooted in science fiction. Automatic doors, cell phones, smart watches, what would have they evolved to without sic-fi to help along the designs? What kind of inventions can we expect tomorrow that are inspired from the science fiction we have today? We tackle these questions and more. Let us know if we missed something on Twitter!

Welcome to a very magic themed episode of Canned Air! We are first joined by Richard Rivera of Stabbity Bunny and James Haick of Scout Comics to help us recall some of our favorite fictional magicians in this week’s Retro Roundtable. With so many different types of magic strewn across pop culture, this was a deep well to take from. From Dr. Fate to Mary Poppins, see if we name one of your favorite!

 
We then turn our attention over to Richard and James and talk about the newly formed relationship between Richard’s Stabbity Bunny comic series with Scout ComicsStabbity Bunny is a tale of mystery and suspense steeped in horror. Innocence is pitted against a ruthless, cynical evil as Grace must overcome a foe hell-bent on gaining power and revenge. Stabbity, Grace’s toy rabbit, has been with the family for nearly 100 years. Heard over to ScoutComics.com and check out Stability Bunny, as well as a lot of other comics.
 
Then we welcome magician/ writer Nate Staniforth to the show to talk about his career and new book HERE IS REAL MAGIC: A Magicians Search for Wonder In The Modern World. HERE IS REAL MAGIC is an earnest and heartfelt memoir about rediscovering the importance of wonder in everyday life, from professional magician Nate Staniforth. Filled with humor, wisdom, and a genuine sense of adventure, HERE IS REAL MAGIC is about that single moment of wonder in a magician’s performance—that instant when someone realizes they’re seeing something magical and their eyes go wide—and the journey to find it in our daily lives. Visit NateStaniforth.com to find out more about Nate and his book, and go to RealMagicTour.com to see if Nate will be performing a magic show near you!

We are joined by pop culture royalty this week as we welcome actor and puppeteer Mike Quinn to the show! Though Mike is best known for his portrayal of Nien Nunb in the Star Wars films, his work can also be seen in The Muppets, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Toy Story 2, Jurassic Park 3, and many other films. We talk with Mike about how he started working with puppets, how he came to work with Jim Henson and the Muppets, and his mark on the Star Wars movies.

 
Having done CG work on Attack of the Clones, bringing to life many of the puppets in Return of the Jedi, and reprising Nien Nunb in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, you would be hard pressed to find anyone else who can give a more in-depth look at what happens behind the scenes on a Star Wars film. A must listen for any fan!

We take the week off in lieu of the holiday season and leave you with an episode that we’ve been sitting on for such an occasion. With no agenda, we discuss Pokemon GO, painting game models (and the value we give them), and the effects of social media on society. We’ll be back with a new episode next week. Happy New Year!
