In which Darth Vader is likened to both a three-legged dog and a dark Polly Pocket, while Katharina explains her history of punching boys for chocolate. Oh, yes, and we finally reach the original trilogy which is actually not about blowing up the planet of the chickens with a ruler.

In which we realise that the Jedi robe is the trench coat of a galaxy far, far away, Christopher Lee has actually played a non-villainous rôle and “You’ve got a good wonky face” would make a great Anakin pick-up line. Join us as we consider the horrifying concept of Obi Wan Kenobi played by Noel Edmunds.

Episode 1 – The Fantom Menace2015-11-27 20.48.10 Kopie

In which we discuss Jar Jar vs C3PO, painful stereotyped accents, questionable love interests and rubbish droids. That’s droids who are rubbish, rather than droids who specialise in dealing with rubbish, which are something else entirely.

The Wookiee Rookiee Podcast

2015-11-27 20.48.10 KopieDid you know that there exist people who have never seen the original Star Wars trilogy? It’s true!

Katharina is one such soul who would like to be able to enjoy the forthcoming “The Force Awakens” without skipping over a whole generation of the story. Chris and Mick, caring types that they are, decided that if she’s going to watch the original series after all these years of steadfast refusal, then she should probably go back and watch the whole six movies in chronological order. In this podcast we discuss how that experience went, one episode at a time.

Episode 0 – Opening Crawl

In which we introduce ourselves and the purpose of the existence of this delectable audio morsel.

We mention the following video clips you might want to check out to see what on earth we’re talking about:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg-pnGFbwMQ
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-f_tMltpDTg

Katharina (the actual Wookiee Rookiee) cut her podcasting teeth on the Three Heroes Podcast many many years ago and is currently working on the second book in her Coffee Fantasy series, the first of which (The Coffee Legacy – http://www.wiener-blut.com) is available in audio podcast form. Her website is at http://www.maimer.net, where you’ll find all sorts of interesting things related to photography, food, coffee and Austria. She is also co-host (with Mick) of the Every Photo Tells… Podcast, where you will find over 150 short stories in all genres from a range of authors.

Mick also writes and podcasts, both with Katharina on EPT and in his own ongoing audio podcast about strange goings-on, conspiracy and ancient technology (Some Other Scotland – http://someotherscotland.com). His own website at http://www.mickbordet.com is host to his musical endeavours and related activities (such as occasional concert and album reviews).

Chris co-hosts the Eleventh Hour Podcast (http://ehpodcast.com), now in its 5th year of regular Doctor Who goodness, which has spun off its own successful siblings. Chris & Joe Do A Thing (http://jcdothing.blogspot.co.at) covers topics as diverse as slow sci-fi, wresting, horror and anything else they stumble upon along the way. Meanwhile, over on the Last Word Podcast (http://lastwordpodcast.blogspot.co.at) Chris introduces Alirio to the classic UK TV series Press Gang.

Christmas Markets in Vienna, 2015 Edition

XmasCover E 2015When I started blogging about Christmas markets in winter 2012, I never thought it would become a book, let alone I would be publishing a second edition three years later.

After it was first published, I still wanted to go to new markets or revisit old ones, and I took my camera and Mick with me, to be safe. The plan was to update it for 2014, but we moved house and the project landed in the queue.

I was sure though, once the new opening dates and times were published I would manage a 2015 edition – and here it is! 🙂

Updated infos, seven new markets, and many more photos!

Smashwords (and many more…)

The Third NaNo Win

2013-Winner-Facebook-CoverIt’s December 1st, and on November 23 I finished my third NaNoWriMo after 2010 and 2012. It is also the third time I’ve managed to write 50,000 words. I might have finished the word goal but I’m not finished with the book yet. I think it might need another 10-20K words. For this NaNo, I was writing the sequel to my 2010 project, the Coffee Legacy (Wiener Blut 1). It is called Danube Waves and revolves around… cake! 🙂 Yes I am serious. That’s how the idea started. One cake per chapter instead of coffee. Not to worry, there is still a lot of coffee in the books and even more was consumed writing it. I hope I can finish the first draft of the novel by the end of the year but I also promised Mick to edit Some other Scotland, which he has finished during this NaNo. He’ll go on to writing his 2010 NaNo book which has yet to be finished. Once he has done that, he will go on to edit Danube Waves. I hope I’m quicker writing than he edits, but I have a suspicion I might be.

So what else is next? Working on more Every Photo Tells… stories and on the 2nd edition of our guidebook Christmas Markets in Vienna, to add more markets and more photos. Once the edits of Danube Waves are done it’ll go out to the beta readers and I will start working on the audio book version. I was hesitant about it at first, mainly because I didn’t want to re-cast the people who appear again, but since I managed to convince the most important recurring voices, I’m happy to do a full cast version of it as well.

I think that’s enough to do and it should keep me busy for a while. Needless to say there is already the next idea or two floating in my head…
