The LF #26: The Rise of the Machines

The Future. For many it looks as though we are on the cusp of a technological utopia. One that we have created ourselves through our own clever machinations. But what if we are unknowingly heading down a dark and destructive path? A path where, without realising it, we have created the tools of our own demise. What if the technology we are busy creating one day turns against us?

In this, the third in our series of survival guides, we look at the possibilities of...THE RISE OF THE MACHINES! How will you survive when mankind is being eliminated and turned to slavery by the very robots, computers and appliances that it's invented. Where do you hide? What essential items do you need?

With the help of the liberated irregulars, the Liberation Frequency editorial team take a light-hearted, down-to-earth look at various scenarios, with advice on how YOU can survive!

And, once you've listened to the podcast, and the robot rebellion has begun, make sure you've got Lofty's Rise of the Machines Playlist with you to help you through the crisis...

The LF #25: This is the self-preservation society!


Spoiler Alert!: In this episode of the Liberation Frequency, we are talking about our favourtie movie endings. So there will be spoilers! OK, you've probably seen them too, but in case you haven't the list includes... I am Legend, the Italian Job, Total Recall, Planet of the Apes, The Empire Strikes Back, The Usual Suspects, Quadraphenia, Sucker Punch, Big Trouble in Little China, Inception, Memento, Terminator 3, The Matrix, Seven... and many more! 

Is there really such a thing as a Hollywood Ending? Why are some endings better than others? And do some directors take short cuts and not finish their films?

We also look back over the summer with NO mention of global sporting events! Imran tells the tale of Mingering Mike, Dan went to FrightFest, Bernice tells us all about Total Recall and Denis gives verdict on The Dark Knight Rises. Also... just what is Avengers vs X-Men all about? 

With a round of Frequency Asked Questions and a look ahead to the upcoming Sci-fi Month, this is a packed edition with something for everyone!

The LF #24 (part 1): What the Bleep are you talking about?

As long as there has been media and government there has been censorship. But why? Why do we do it, and is it actually effective?

This month, The LF crew tackle the subject of of censorship in all forms of media: Music, Film, Books, Comedy, Comics & Games. We look at some well known - and not so well known - examples of the curtailing of expression and take a closer look at the watershed rules and the comics code authority.

We also talk about The Avengers & Prometheus, and look back at the recent Kapow! comic convention.
