    Episode 219 - Drop Dead Fred: LIVE! (w/ Casey Wilson)

    Yeah, I quit about halfway through, haven't tried to pick it up again, and have no plans to do so in the future. A lot of the episodes where there's some kind of strong disagreement, or an element that's confusing, are delights to listen to. I just got tired listening to this.

    Fred is a Beetlejuice-like character going around causing mayhem in Phoebe's life. Because otherwise, she's mentally ill, and we as an audience are supposed to be sad when the manifestation of that illness goes away.

    Hackers. I realize it's not a good movie, and gets almost every detail about computers wrong, and makes it seems like hackers are hanging out in cool clubs. But it has actors that are surprisingly committed to their parts, starred guys that I was into as a teen newly hatched from the gay egg, and had Matthew Lillard as a somewhat gender- and sexually ambiguous character when that was pretty uncommon for mainstream movies. And it has a great soundtrack. In a similar vein, one they haven't covered is Empire Records. Hack the planet! HACK THE PLANET!

    Episode 219 - Drop Dead Fred: LIVE! (w/ Casey Wilson)

    This episode is EXHAUSTING to listen to. I've had to follow June's philosophy of breaking it into 10-minute chunks. I'm only halfway through, and I'm not sure I'm going to finish it. I usually listen to lighter-themed podcasts at the gym (unless I want to rage lift and get my dander up), but I was getting so frustrated, I had to stop. I know a lot of their reactions are exaggerated for comedic effect, but everyone taking it so very seriously just drained all of the fun out of the exercise.

    What to expect at live shows?

    You'll likely be hoarse from chanting "ZOOOOOOOOOOOOOKS!" and "JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNE!"

    Episode 158 - Body Parts: LIVE!

    I'm playing catch-up because I got really behind on my podcast consumption, but I had two takeaways here: 1) When they kept calling the surgeon "The woman from Sherlock," you have no idea how disappointed I was when I discovered it wasn't Mrs. Hudson. I don't tend to watch them beforehand, have occasionally seen them in the past (Hackers, a movie I actually really enjoy, and a few others), and on very rare occasions, end up seeking them out. So you know, in my mind, it was Mrs. Hudson the badass evil surgeon. 2) Claudia and Jason have a very similar sense of humor. "I was edging the entire time" sounds even funnier in an Australian accent.

    Episode 159 - Sleepwalkers

    Do you suppose that in King's coke-addled mind, he mixed up the Navajo tradition of the skinwalkers? I mean, I figured he'd hit Peak Cocaine a few years prior, but maybe not.

    I know it's been said that the infamous Smurfs episode is available, but it's not on the Howl iOS app.

    Episode 130.5 - Minisode 130.5

    Not all of us are ladies. I actually own The Covenant on DVD. I think it was cheap at Gamestop, the guys were hot, and it was a lot less creepy when I was a decade younger.

    Episode 130 - Teen Witch

    Well, I'm not a gender-studies major, and I am a decade older now than Dan Gauthier was then, but he was frigging hot back then.

    Episode 130 - Teen Witch

    I'm pretty sure they were Pop Tarts. Which is even weirder. This is only the third time HDTGM has inspired me to immediately go watch the movie after the episode. And one of those times was Hackers, which I'd already seen, so I don't think it counts. I'm either the same age as Paul and June or close to it, so I totally grokked the movie. And now I'm also compelled to watch Can't Buy Me Love.
