    Episode 152.5 - Minisode 152.5

    I can already tell you what Jason's favorite line of this movie will be: "It's horny time, baby!" - Bobo Nikki Minage This has to be the best possible way to be greeted by someone you don't know when visiting a city for the first time. The movie accurately predicted smart phones (of 2013). All the handheld devices in this movie are all the same garage door opener with LCD numbers-only display hot-glued on. We know that each device does something different because the actors tell us so.

    Episode 148 - Vampire's Kiss: LIVE!

    Jennider/Jessica Beals' fingernails change color between the time they meet at the club and when they bone zone at his place, which is presumably the same night. They're very dark at the club and bright red at his place.

    Episode 148 - Vampire's Kiss: LIVE!

    In my mind, the therapist from Vampires Kiss (especially in the fantasy scenes) was the inspiration for the therapist from Crank 2

    Reading Regret

    Welcome to the anti-book club. Let's talk about books we regret reading. Me first. I don't remember exactly why I hated Children of Dune so much, but I gave up on it with 10 pages to go. Also, I was at the beach at the time and had nothing else to read all day, but still, it seemed worth it at the time not to let the bastard win. I read God Emperor Dune a few years later and loved it, so go figure. I didn't make it through Chapter House, but I don't think that was the book's fault. Tuesdays with Morrie reads like a series of Hallmark cards ready by Hummel figurines, a simplistic, surface-level appeal to what the author assumes is our better nature. Never again am I going to let the "everyone is telling me to read this book" phenomenon drive book buying decisions. So much of the glurgy message of the book is about acceptance, and yet the text spends so much time judging people (the author judging himself and guessing at the motivations of random strangers to whom he never speaks) that you want to shake the author to death. Assuming that people who do not see the world as you do are miserable and in need of your help is deeply arrogant and gross. I don't know how else to describe the book and how I felt reading it but that word: gross. I read Atlas Shrugged as an adventure story. A guy makes special metal and there's an issue with the trains blah blah blah. It was dumb, so very dumb,though I didn't hate it as much as Tuesdays because I knew it was a pseudo-intellectual snot rag from the get-go. Also, I skipped the 50 page speech at the end because I've got shit to do. Your turn- what books did you read or (half read) only to regret it at some point?

    Episode 442 - Atlantis Dire Warning

    When you're a cowboy poet making sweet love to the wind, all winds are Chicago style because the sauce is on top.

    Do other people have real life friends who are podcast fans?

    I do, but they're generally into bland NPR podcasts or shows I can't stand and/or broke up with ages ago. Whenever they bring up On The Media or Serial, I groan silently the same way I'm sure they do when I bring up How Did This Get Made or No Such Thing as a Fish.

    Episode 142.5 - Minisode 142.5

    On Overcast.fm it looked as though every episode of HDTGM premiered today so the unplayed tab had dozens of episodes and you have to manually delete them or unsubscribe and re-subscribe. In the absence of any actual information, I blame the intern.
  9. How did I get Nancy? This is bullshit!
  10. My teenager daughter and I watched it together (75% of the references went over her head) and she pointed to an interesting response she found on Tumblr which I will paraphrase horribly: Each group of characters represents a different genre of 80's movie. The kids are in a sci fi movie where their friendship is tested (ET, etc.) The teenagers are in Halloween + Pretty in Pink. Hoop and Joyce are in a pre-X-Files conspiracy flick. Nothing they try works until all the storylines come together near the end because they only see things from their genre's perspective.
  11. For 1982/3, a text adventure game on a TRS-80 would probably have been more accurate. I used to play them on my Trash-80 all the time because I was (am) a huge nerd. Because you couldn't store anything (without sacrificing your Queen's Greatest Hits cassette) I learned to write games super fast. I thought it would impress girls.
  12. Those kids talking in Italian and French as if the French invented pizza- ugh. Can you imagine an alternate universe in which French chefs invented pizza and people loved it? A disc of croissant slathered in fatty cream sauce and topped with bœuf bourguignon and brie. Actually, that does not sound horrible now that I think about it.
  13. I like to think that Wednesday and Suzuki Beane were reluctant friends in "square" school https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P909e3DznY8
  14. Barb's Trapper Keeper game is strong. I was a kid in this era, and I knew a lot of Barbs- rectilinear eyewear, serious Martha Plimpton vibe. Barbs are awesome.
  15. On an unrelated note - anyone finish Stranger Things? I remember playing the Atari 2600 version as a kid
