Alright y'all. I wanted to end this year with something super fun. What is more fun sitting around with some of your good friends and chatting about fan theories for the hit show WESTWORLD!!!!! If you are not a fan,
We can't be friends , or haven't finished the first season, what are you thinking?!, then you should really turn away right................ NOW. There are not many shows out there where I truly geek out. Alright, alright quiet down!!! Who knew Stranger Things was going to blow all of our socks off, AND that I would get to interview one of the stars of the show (shameless plug). That is besides the point, the point is, there is hardly a show out there anymore where I lose my mind over it. I crave it, I obsess, and talk countless theories over it with friends when I should be working! Hi Aldo's Foods! I could not let this moment pass me by to invite some friends over and chat about all of the fan theories that are swirling out there about this show!
To those who don't know
once again wtf, Westworld is aired on HBO and stars, Anthony Hopkins, Jeffery Wright, James Marsden, Thandie Newton, Evan Rachel Wood, (best cry face ever), and Ed Harris (among many others). We do not know what year it is, but you find out shortly that there is a western world made up of robots, hosts as they call them, that are part of some "experience" for the guests. The guests are high paying human clients that get to live out their fantasies, risk free in this sort of game. Like walking into your very own soap opera. The hosts are programmed to have a script, until one day, things start to go off the rails. THAT is all I am telling you.
If you are a fan of the show you will have some fun sitting with us as we ramble through our thoughts. We recorded this before the finale, and then after the finale, so you get to see if any of the theories we had came true. What an ending, folks! AND what an ending to 2016! May all your holidays be joyful and bright! See you in the new year!
Love you all,
PS: Two things-
We are almost rounding out this year!!! AHH! I can't believe it. It went so fast, but I am super happy that I get to feature Nick Miller and Ashely Cort before the end of the year! If you follow me, you know I love video games, among many, many other things. I am super jealous right now, because Nick and Ashley (whom I know from up at Epicast TV, and Black Forge Coffee), have managed to put themselves INTO a game. I am not joking folks, it's true. They made themselves into 16 bit characters for Sega Genesis! I can't even deal with this news. I just knew I had to get them on the show to find out how they did it!
Nick and Ashley are the owners of Black Forge Coffee Shop in the up, and coming Allentown neighborhood. It is a minute away from our lovely Epicast Network (PODSQUAD!), which is housed in Work Hard Pittsburgh. I chat with these two to find out what it takes to make an old school video game, What the game is all about (two words- Coffee and Crisis!),why they got in the coffee business, and many more questions about kicking it old school. They even give away a password for Coffee Crisis during the episode! Check them out at Black Forge Coffee Shop Twitter Black Forge Shout out to Col, and Sikes from Greywalker who perform the music in the game.
You guys gotta see this thing, the booklet looks so sweet. Get yourself a copy for your favorite person, or for yourself for the holidays. Now I wanna be in a video game! Damn! Were you a Nintendo or Sony kid? Tell us your favorite games in the comments!
Stay tuned for A Very Westworld Christmas Special Edition Episode to round out the year! Happy Holidays everyone!

The first time I met Sean Collier, I didn't know what to expect. I knew his dad was a popular name in Pittsburgh, and so is Sean's. He was very quiet at a gathering we were all invited to, and I was honestly not sure if we would get along. To be honest, I was nervous to talk to him. He is probably laughing at me right now reading this. Well, it shows how much I know, we totally hit it off, and are now good buds. He is one of the better eggs in our city, and I love what he does. I have been on his podcast called You Can't Handle The Truth, where he, and Aaron Kleiber,(another awesome dude) review movies after an advance screening of them. Not sure you know this about me, but I am obsessed with movies. I used to keep lists when I was little of any category you can think of.
The list went on... I still have these notebooks someplace stored in my mom's house like a time capsule. As I got older, I graduated to writing my own reviews, for no apparent reason then to get my thoughts out. I never submitted them, hell, I never even showed them to anyone else. I just liked doing it. I am sure if I reread them now, they would be both humorous and lame. With that being said, I wanted to pick Sean's brain about how the nomination process works for movie awards, what (in his mind) makes a great movie, how he writes reviews all the time without burning out, and how in the heck did he land one of the coolest jobs ever! Seeing movies before they hit theaters? AMAZING!
Grab your popcorn, candy, *ahem* bottle of wine, and tune into this fun conversation we had after we viewed Allied with Brad Pitt. I promise you will like it, even if you don't, we won't judge you. HEH, see what I did there?
Tune into Marta On The Move on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! Tell me what YOU want to hear, and I will tell you if I am curious about it. lol. Thank you everyone for letting me do what I do.
