  1. Aboot, eh? Heehee.

    I proclaim this the sexiest Galacticast ever!

    - Jeff, October 16th, 2006
  2. FRIGGIN’ AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!! So you’re already celebrating your Vloggie in anticipation, Casey??

    Really fun and lots of laughs! Keep it up!

    - Leonardo, October 16th, 2006
  3. Hi Casey and Rudy,
    I am flattered and charmed. Nudity is always a great way to win a Vloggie…Rudy be advised.

    And there is a special category at the Vloggies…Miss Room Key.

    - Daniel McVicar, October 16th, 2006
  4. You two are awesome. Great job.

    - Michael Becker, October 16th, 2006
  5. Nice! Really funny guys!

    Casey, I expected you to say “D**n dirty Trout!”

    - CarLBanks, October 16th, 2006
  6. My favorite episode yet… you guys totally kicked each other asses!

    - Rick Rey, October 16th, 2006
  7. I would like to be there to have fun with you, love all of your vlog
    keep going on

  8. frakking excellent !
    although i was unaware of the William Shatner Spokeperson Contest and while i’m still not sure about the character whom Casey seems so found about (and in french too !), i’ve found this one even funnier than the previous one. Funnier and sexier too ! How brave, or should i say how canadian of Casey to accept to appear (or do you have a body double ?) fully naked, like any Austrian bodybuilder ! I really doubt that any american (i.e. from the US of A) vlogger would have been this far to make her point…

    - jeanphi, October 17th, 2006
  9. Quality as usual. Not sure what it is about these ones but i do like these ones where you fuse a lot of things together.

    I bet it is cool to plan the idea for the shoot. Love the tron bit. :) – dont worry casey if you DONT for any reason win a vloggie i have a surprise for you anyway. :)

    - phil "dmouse" cambell, October 17th, 2006
  10. I have the same garbage can in my kitchen.

    - Jarod, October 17th, 2006
  11. nice use of the faux-bullet-time!
    I guess it should be laser-time…

    Loved this episode.

    brem of brem experience aka martinbreton.com

    - brem, October 17th, 2006
  12. I guess I’ll continue to be the only vlogger brave enough to do full frontal (outside no less!).

    - Verdi, October 17th, 2006
  13. Jeff- I actually wanted to end the episode by cutting from “but William Shatner’s a Canadian”… but Rudy wanted the “aboot, eh?” part in there. I figured non-Canadians would like it, so we ended up using it. :P

    Leonardo- Well… our original script didn’t have Dan McVicar or the Vloggies in it, but it’s fun to be silly ;)

    Dan- We’ll see if we can get Rudy naked next week :D

    Michael- YOU’re awesome!

    CarL- Hehe… no such luck, CarL.

    Rick- I think Rudy kicked my ass a little more… he got all the badass weapons.

    Cuoredifango- Perhaps someday you’ll get to have fun with us in person… we sometimes go to conventions, so you never know where we’ll show up ;)

    JeanPhi- Dan McVicar is a soap opera star turned awesome videoblogger (and a new friend of mine). He’s launching a show called the Late Nite Mash, which will be a daily late night show for the internet. It’s a great site because it’s set up for social networking… I’m already a member (Link)!!!

    Phil- Oooohh… a surprise? Rudy will be jealous… ;)

    Jarod- My ex-boyfriend’s family had that garbage can too… I fell in love with the trash can and dumped the guy :P

    Brem- That faux bullet time was SO HARD!!! We didn’t have a lot of time to put this episode together, so the bullet scene wasn’t as good as I was hoping for. If I had more time, I would have made the bullet a 3D layer… oh well, next time I guess.

    - Casey, October 17th, 2006
  14. Verdi- You WHAT? That IS brave…

    - Casey, October 17th, 2006
  15. that was FRECKY!


    - taxiplasm, October 17th, 2006
  16. [...] So, well, the galacticast thing is there. Casey, in usual vixxen ways, talked about nudity on the yahoogroups, and many guys went there looking for nudity, and some girls too I guess. [...]

  17. You know what I love about you guys? (aside from the Rudy’s killer Christopher Lambert impersonation) is the fact that you don’t get naked because you have to, you get naked because you WANT to!

    - missb, October 17th, 2006
  18. Actually Verdi, I too got naked for one of our short films, where we were parodying American Psycho. I was naked with a running chainsaw covering my junk. And that was in an office building. Unfortunately, we couldn’t use the shot, because it got quite explicit. I’ll let you imagine why.

    Casey, nice tribble! Rudy, nice lightsaber!


    - g14productions.com, October 17th, 2006
  19. Who is the maudit tête carré who decided that the Shatner spokesperson competition is only open to Americans?

    And Casey, nice … uhm, shoulders.

    - Irish Hermit, October 17th, 2006
  20. [...] Quicktime Video for Raymonde, who is a good boy. Via here and here. [...]

  21. Oh, and I forgot. Dalek = Hysterical. Best recurring character ever.


    - g14productions.com, October 17th, 2006
  22. haha..wonderful! I start to wonder what your neighbors think about all of that noise..

    - tagami, October 17th, 2006
  23. another great show guys. is it coinsidence that we both featured dan mcvicar on our respective shows this week or is it something much more dangerous? does it mean something? like a mountain of mash potatoes only they aren’t potatoes they are mchash browns. what’s goin’ on?

    - Charlie, October 17th, 2006
  24. another great show always worth the wait so is it me or is Rudy working out now a days?

    - Midnighttlc, October 17th, 2006
  25. You DO realize the two things that can brake up a relationship are money and William Shatner. My wife and I solved it by buying William Shatner. He isn’t MIB, but it is cool playing with his interchangeable hair styles.

    - WrightBrain, October 17th, 2006
  26. This stuff is better than most of the crap on TV. I am redeamed there is inteligent life out there;those who use quotations from science fiction in every day conversation or short films.

    - Bladehoonslayer, October 18th, 2006
  27. Taxiplasm- We’re frakked up, what can I say?

    MissB- We actually considered doing a whole Austin Powers-style nudity scene where the important parts were always covered by something in the foreground. By the time we got to the nude scene, though, we just wanted to go to bed! Compared to other episodes, we didn’t really film that late at night… but still, we were TIRED!

    Matthew/G14- Actually, Matthew, Verdi has definitely one-up’d you on nudity… he didn’t edit his parts out like you did, but he displayed them in all their glory while ranting at the camera. AND, to take it that much farther… he actually walked out of his front door completely naked immediately afterwards in broad daylight!

    You’re right about our pet Dalek though… best recurring character indeed. Rudy is repairing him as we speak…

    Irish Hermit- Well, if we were RESIDENTS in the US we would be able to enter… but alas, we are not. We love William Shatner. We love the ideas behind the contest… we just wish we could enter!

    Tagami- Ahh… the noise. Well, we haven’t got any complaints so far and it’s been almost 6 months. The loudest episode was Queen Kong… LOTS of screaming involved in THAT one!

    Charlie- It’s because Dan McVicar is a vlog-favorite right now… who doesn’t love the guy, he’s awesome!

    MidnightTLC- It’s just you. Unfortunately, with our day jobs and the show Rudy doesn’t have much time to workout these days. More than anything he needs a workout buddy that will make him go to the gym.

    WrightBrain- Rudy and I are connected in our love of William Shatner… I guess only money can break us apart. (NOT! It’s probably more like Jolene Blalock…)

    Bladehoonslayer- It’s not only on our vlog… this is an embellished version of our everyday lives (minus me cooing over Dan McVicar and the special effects!). Glad you think it’s better than TV… now that I make/watch videoblogs, I notice how much of TV is filler! Remember when they cut Ally McBeal down to 30 minute episodes? Well then, why did they bother making an hour program in the first place?

    - Casey, October 18th, 2006
  28. excuses I say; if Rudy needs a work out buddy maybe he should check out Craig’s list but I’m not sure if about the type of work out buddy he might find lol!

    - Midnighttlc, October 18th, 2006
  29. Speaking as an ex-pat, if Americans didn’t make things for ‘US Residents Only’ they’d never win anything. Stay tuned for the American Only 2010 Olympics (the US is expected to do well.)

    - Justin, October 18th, 2006
  30. Casey, Casey…I was just trying to comfort Michael in the fact that he was not alone in his nudity. We at g14 are not trying to 1-Up anybody, because frankly, that would be futile, as none of us have the stones that the folks over at Insane Films have.

    I say we all stand together in our nudity, no matter how partial/full it may be! Or, you know, we should at least spoon.



    - g14productions.com, October 18th, 2006
  31. Casey,

    I stand corrected on the RESIDENTS clarification. I just wish that this country (the Hew Hess Hay) would realize that the world doesn’t end at it’s borders.


    I wouldn’t be surprised it they tried that. In 1975, after losing to Japan or Tawain for seven out of eight years, Little League Baseball banned all non-US teams from the World Series. After considerable criticism, the ban was rescinded the following year.

    - Irish Hermit, October 19th, 2006
  32. Casey,
    Filler cannot be dismissed too lightly , with any media filler is what holds all the “hooks/action” together.
    Too much filler and the subject will get lost in it .
    Too little and you become bored by all the action.
    Any one can drop out ideas fill the void between and your audience will be on for the long haul
    TV is a wonderful medium it can inform us, entertain us, and it can be used to make tones of money .That is why is north American TV is “free”.
    The products advertised pay for it. The shows with product placement even sell you on the lifestyle that goes with the product. “Oh joy!”
    So a TV show has to be good enough to keep you viewing until the next commercial. Therefore even the best TV shows are just filler.
    [Bladehoonslayer has TV issues]

    - bladehoonslayer, October 19th, 2006
  33. Another great sci-fi parody, spoof, parody, comedy.

    Please do a blade runner spoof lol.

    I kept watching the Terminator bit over and over for some reason. I don’t know why.

    Anyone else get this compulsion.


    p.s. aced my physiology exam :-D .

    - Steven, October 19th, 2006
  34. Another Bladerunner reference! (Well amonst many other ones) :D

    Fabulous jobs as usual guys. Slighty OT but I’m curious on how you two are digging season 3 of our dear Battlestar (I do hope you guys get it already, I’ll admit I don’t know when Canada gets our programming). I’m absolutely blown away (though I didn’t expect any less from Ron) and wish that I could get my paws on a Colonial uniform! :3

    - Calamity, October 19th, 2006
  35. You guys, that was incredible! More, More, More!

    - Michael Tyas, October 20th, 2006
  36. Where’s your pet on this episode?

    - brem, October 20th, 2006
  37. Still in Hungary, still enjoying Your show! The Disk effect was from Tron, wasn’t it? My girlfriend asks, when will be Rudy naked?


    - Ignac, October 20th, 2006
  38. Sorry for taking so long to reply to everyone’s comments, we’re busy working on Monday’s episode for you! Oh yeah, and before I reply to everyone, y’all should go vote for your favorite videobloggers at the Vloggies site… CLICK HERE to go vote!

    MidnightTLC- Good news, man, he’s working on joining a gym/boxing place so he can buff up… he has quite the tiny Halloween costume this year (not sure if I can tell you what it is) and wants to look good for the Vloggies.

    Justin- It goes the same way, Justin… if there were no CanCon guidelines, idiots like Sean Paul would never be popular!

    Matthew/G14- Yikes indeed… spoon you in November, I say!

    Irish Hermit- I think a lot of Americans realize that there is a wonderful world out there… unfortunately, they don’t get as much airtime as some idiots!

    bladehoonslayer- I know what you mean about filler… filler is often awesome for creating a mood (but then, that wouldn’t be filler would it?). Filler is stuff that does absolutely NOTHING to the story or mood… I first noticed Filler when watching ST: Voyager last week… I can’t remember what it was, but it was retarded!

    Steven- Well done on the Physiology exam! I’m guessing it’s due to studying the Galacticast/Terminator scene for so long? I guess I make a great teacher ;)

    Calamity- WE ARE DROOLING FOR MORE, as always… and we’d like people to start spreading the lie that Starbuck’s child is actually named after ME!! Go forth and create havoc, my friends… MWOAHAHA!

    Michael Tyas- Oh Michael… just wait til you see what MORE we have coming for you next week. What is “more” than female nudity you ask? Hmm. You’ll see… :P

    Brem- What you missed our pet? He was right there saying “Hi Rudy, want to play Thermo-Nuclear War?”

    Ignac- The disk effects WAS in fact a reference to Tron. I actually did some effects for Tiki Bar TV last month… Check it out (no audio, just clips of the effects):

    Unfortunately, Tiki Bar TV didn’t use the footage… they made their own because I didn’t have time to make changes to the version I sent them.

    Have a great weekend everyone! AND don’t forget to vote for your favorite videobloggers!!!

    - Casey, October 20th, 2006
  39. Funny you say that dear, because as soon as Leoben said their daughter’s name I thought of you! XD

    - Calamity, October 20th, 2006
  40. I don’t know what contest that is, and I didn’t get two or three references…but damn that was a funny episode! You gotta have talent to string all those movie references together so fast that I don’t have a chance to stop laughing. Excellent editing and fx!

    Without Canada, half the podcasts I subscribe to simply wouldn’t be there…no wonder I had a feeling of deja vu when Rudy brought out the Tron disc!

    - Dan, October 21st, 2006
  41. Hhaha! So THAT’S what you guys do around the house everyday. Awesome episode. Really kept me laughing.

    Wrightbrain- I would think a lightsaber would go a long way to breaking up a relationship. We all know how that Skywalker/Kenobi thing turned out.

    - Terrence Walker, October 21st, 2006
  42. What the frack?

    Awesome episode. You give Canada a good name :)

    - drew olanoff, October 21st, 2006
  43. Wow, did this one generate quite a response, eh? The fans have spoken and we now know what you really want … more nude Canadians. With that in mind, stay tuned for next week!

    Until then, head to http://www.vloggiessf.com/vote and vote for your favourite vlogs!

    Oh, and Dan McVicar does have a Ms. Room Key category? HOT DAMN! I’m putting my name in …

    - Rudy, October 21st, 2006
  44. Awfull…just awfull

    - Marvin, October 21st, 2006
  45. Yea Casey. You Amanda Congdon and Lala(from tikibartv) should all get together and make an anatomy and physiology video blog for us students lol. Now that is something I would pay for on iTunes lol. Anyone enough of me perving :-S.

    Over half the class failed that exam. tut tut.

    Yes Rudy. Nude Canadians lol. Nudity on the internet is a big seller. Who’d have guessed it lol.

    Anyway. Do you guys have t-shirts, Galacticast t-shirts I mean, not just random t-shirts from your closet, although… back on point. Do you have or are you thinking about selling some galactcast t-shirts. Almost all popular vlog/podcast/video cast blog thingys have them.

    I really should post comments before 1am. Yawn.

    p.s. didn’t say before but love the new site design.

    - Steven, October 21st, 2006
  46. I have figured out why I am a bit of an insomniac because I try not to sleep as much as I can. It’s evolution guys. I am a science geek I’d say. I want to learn about everything and I want to know everything. I seek out knowledge all the time. Human knowledge is increasing at an exponetial rate so I figure we will all evolve to have 1 hrs sleep at day lol. Just to keep up with it. I imagine all the good vlogs I miss because I don’t know about them or just don’t have the time.

    Any thoughts?

    - Steven, October 21st, 2006
  47. Rudy! Been there voted for ya! Bring Us more naked canadian, but not Brian Adams. He is not cool.

  50. Wtf is up with the add posting geek entertainment tv.

    - Steven, October 22nd, 2006
  51. Steven- Did you see the video of Rudy, me and Amanda Congdon? Go check out the blog… you probably won’t get much of a physiology lesson though. As for human evolution… I sure hope we don’t evolve to 1 hour of sleep!

    Andy- OMG! The Google Talk sounds love you back!

    Steven- That’s not an ad, that’s a trackback, they featured a clip from this episode and linked to us… it’s a good thing!

    - Casey, October 23rd, 2006
  52. Cool. Sorry for my ignorance. I’ll go check it out.

    - Steven, October 23rd, 2006
  53. Hi guys!

    Yesterday was an awfoul day. I was in the city when some people tried to overthrow the legally elected government. Me and my girlfiend heared when the police fired tear gas and they used shotguns with rubber shells. If you watch Cnn be careful . It’s not very accurate. The government is legally elected and working. The red and white flags waved by the mob is the very same flag used by the hungarian nazis in 1944. Under these flags thousands were executed by them.


    P.s.: In these sad times your vlog is still cheers me up. Thank you.

    - Ignac, October 24th, 2006
  54. Steven- Nae problem!

    Ignac- Our poor Ignac! Interesting to hear about what flags they’re using… I hope they don’t make the same mistake they made back during WWII. I’ll have to discuss this with my Hungarian friend Attila when I see him tomorrow. Take care, Ignac! We’re doing our best to get you a new episode tomorrow…

    - Casey, October 24th, 2006
  55. [...] Oh, and Casey McKinnon gets naked over on Galacticast. Don’t miss it! [...]

  56. Ah! THAT pet… I see.

  57. [...] This morning I received this message in reference to our special effects in Last Day and I decided to post my response here for all to see and use: I want to know how you guys did the light saber and Tron frisbee effects. I stumbled upon the video today at my desk. That video had all my favorite movie and show memories in it. What is up with the zombie thing are they still accepting videos? I love what you guys do. [...]

    - GALACTICAST, October 24th, 2006
  58. Hey there, I almost missed that episode, because I was on vacation.. That would have been a pity, since it is frakking awesome! I can’t stop watching your stuff over and over again. Keep up the frakking crazy show!

    btw: I see BS Galactica Season 3 is out – weee!

    Awesome effects!

  61. High-sterical. I love the video mash-ups. My favourite part has to be the impact the IM software has on the whole story…

    Great stuff.

  62. I hate when they come back to life. What a hassle!

  63. [...] This weekend at Comic Con, we got to fulfill a wish for some really nice and talented people (more on the Galacticast blog). You’ll see me in this video showing Kevin the fight scene from Galacticast episode The Last Day on a mobile phone while our producer Sean Monneson braves imperial troops (e.g., overzealous fans volunteering as an honor guard) to keep me in the frame.
