Not sure how this one slipped by me – but my latest column on Bond for the Hero Collector website was posted a few days ago – This time around I take a look at the various 007 origin stories. – You can check it out HERE
Alan takes a trip down memory lane, while Jarrod is left to wonder why his CD collection of alternate Bond themes is incomplete in the latest edition of the Bond Music: Six of the Best podcast. In our continuing look at various spin-off alternate Bond albums we take a look at 1975’s Big Bond Themes from Geoff Love and his Orchestra, where we discuss not only the music, but why there are two different album sleeves.
Had a great time with the guys on the Bond And Beyond podcast recently chatting about several 007 related topics such as James Bond Jr., board games, merchandise, a certain Lexicon, as well supplying some on-the-fly answers to a surprise round of Desert Island Bond. An a big vote of thanks for letting Alan witter on for the majority of the show sharing some stories about what happened to various Bond vehicles after the movies wrapped. – You can tune in an listen here.
Thanks to reader Jeff Philips for including The James Bond Lexicon in this recent post on his Instagram account. We’re honored to be included in such good company – and we can highly recommend all the other books in this collection too.
With the conclusion of the recent James Bond: Agent of Spectre 5-issue series from Dynamite Comics, we have now added 13 new entries to the online Lexicon Updates section. You can find Blofeld’s Alfa Romeo car; his private Greek island, Meraki; and Bond’s latest alias; John Wakemen, plus other people, places, and things from the series listed HERE.
On the latest of the Bond Music: Six of the Best podcast episode, Jarrod and Alan continue their investigation of various Bond related “spinoff” albums with BOND BEAT & BASS. The subtitle “The Elektronika James Bond Themes” gives a hint of what we can expect. Just how cruel has Jarrod been making Alan listen to this and will he begin to appreciate this sort of music?
The Bond Lexicon team (i.e. Gillian and Alan) had a great time at the recent Comicpalooza pop-culture event in Houston TX, where we’d been asked to present our “25 Things You Didn’t Know About James Bond” panel. It was interesting, and a little different, being on an open stage in the middle of the main convention floor. We got a good engaged crowd, had some fun throwing out a mix of 007 themed trivia questions and facts for the audience. Thanks also to the few folks who stayed a while after the panel and picked up signed copies of The James Bond Lexicon to take home with them. – It was good to be back on the convention circuit again and meeting people.
As we have now covered all the movie soundtracks to date we thought it might be fun to branch out with our Bond music podcast series and take a look at some of the “spin-off” albums out there. Alan had the lead for the first in this new series and picked David Arnold’s Shaken & Stirred project.
You can check out our discussion of the album and, as usual, or six track picks by tuning in here.
