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.

The guys at the excellent Central Intelligence Cinema podcast were crazy enough to ask us to be the first guests on their new “Special Operations Debrief” shows. We had a great time discussing many aspects of Bond geekdom as well as diving into some of the details of the The James Bond Lexicon.
You can listen the the conversation HERE.
We were honored to be asked to appear on an episode of KTRS Radio’s Geek To Me pop-culture show in early May. We had a great time chatting about the story behind the James Bond Lexicon and things 007 in general.
You can find the show online HERE or on YouTube.
Jarrod and Alan wrap up their look back at the various Bond movie soundtracks with a look at Thomas Newman’s second Bond score, SPECTRE. In this episode you’ll find out just how Jarrod and Alan are related, where Alan left his socks, and more as we drill into our top picks. We also discuss just how The Writing’s On The Wall is connected to the Goldfinger theme song.
Tune in here to listen in.
Thanks to The 00 Files team for inviting us on to their podcast to discuss The James Bond Lexicon project. Gill and Alan had a great time discussing the book, and quizzing the guys on their James Bond Lexicon based knowledge. And of course, they had to turn the tables on us too! – Now we know to make sure we are fully briefed on the respective heights of Dutch actors in Bond movies!

[Having listened back to our spot on James Bond Radio we realize that Alan made a couple of goofs.
- Fleming wrote Bond’s obituary in YOLT not OHMSS ! Oops!
- Jill and Tilly Masterton / Masterson were definitely sisters but not twins.
Sorry about that.]
