  1. Should you be watching Star Crash? No. But there is a young Hasselhoff in it, and he would probably be a guest.

    EPISODE 106 — Deep Blue Sea: LIVE!

    It's a comedy thriller I guess? Not many traditional thrillers button their action sequences with lines like "you ate my bird", sadly. Also, I love that SLJ and Brie Larson are buds.

    Musical Mondays Week 61 The Long Dumb Road*

    This movie is now on Crave in Canada, FYI. Which means it's probably on Hulu or Starz or something in the US?

    Episode 213 - Shanghai Surprise (w/ Jordan Rubin)

    Just curious, what do you think you're accomplishing here, rhetorically speaking? Are you trying to imply that I don't think rape is bad? You feel my phrase that you called out is insufficient to cover the actions of some in Hollywood who are criminals? I disagree. Rapists and abusers are absolutely shitty people. So what's your purpose here, apart from trying to reassert some kind of weird alpha-poster dominance with your hair-splitting and your "impressive" signature? I have neither the time nor patience for this. If you just want to put words in my mouth or nitpick to serve your own agenda, kindly don't bother replying next time, or just mute me, as I certainly plan to do with you.

    Episode 213 - Shanghai Surprise (w/ Jordan Rubin)

    To paraphrase the late Harlan Ellison, buying a book or a movie ticket doesn't give you the right to do any more than read the book or watch the movie. If you also want that price to guarantee that everyone involved in its production fits your moral code, whatever that might be, prepare for the price of everything to go up substantially. And while you're at it, apply the same rigor to, say, Facebook, which lots of people still seem to be on but is arguably a much bigger danger to the world than anything done by any celebrity who isn't named Trump. Or hell, the so-called church of Scientology. And lots of other so-called churches, lobbies and so on. As others are essentially saying, you gotta do you. Everyone does, after all. Why we suddenly feel the need to argue about the moral merits of the same few dozen celebrities, I can't imagine. They're symbols, I suppose, of particular social ills that we wish would go away. But they are also just human beings like everyone else. I dearly love Audrey Hepburn, but she sure as hell wasn't perfect. No one is. I like to think, as someone who is also far from perfect and who also makes art and sells it to people sometimes, that the art is often where a flawed person can be their best selves, and try to express their ideas and feelings where otherwise perhaps they can't. I guess my point is, if you want to battle the evil in your world, artists of any type are probably already on your side, even if they are shitty people. You can concentrate on actual enemies like, say, your rapist "president" and his oligarch masters first.

    No, you are not the only one. Penn's temper and abuse of his wife and photographers doesn't seem to have ever had public negative impact to his career. Ironic that he played a soulful photographer in the last thing I liked him in (Ben Stiller's remake of Walter Mitty). We really put up with a lot of bullshit from self-absorbed method actors back then, telling ourselves they were passionate. I think in Penn's case, he's just a dick.

    I'm guessing that given the slogan on the poster ("Mercy for the Brave Boys") it's a World War 1 era poster entreating women to lend support to the war effort as nurses and caregivers. The uniform and colour scheme is reminiscent of British posters from the time. And since much of fantasy literature and gaming was inspired by World War 1 and 2, it's still relevant to Zelda.

    Musical Mondays Week 66 Preview (EvRobert’s 3rd Pick)

    As a theatre nerd I am into musicals (except most Webber and his imitators) and would be delighted to suggest a thing or two.

    Yeah. Was there even a knuckleball in the forties? Pitchers back then were expected to throw strikes and let the outfield handle balls put in play. It wasn't the role it is today.

    The Blood of Heroes (1989)

    I feel like I have seen this movie but under another title? It certainly sounds great, anything with Rutger Hauer should be on HDTGM. Including Blade Runner!

    Blackhat (2015)

    I'm watching this on Netflix now. I'm only about thirty minutes in, but I feel confident that this is a film that the gang could really have some fun with. It's like a Reddit fever dream.

    Trailer Talk

    The new Spider-Man trailer talks about a multiverse. Which means, I hope, eventual live-action MCU Spider-Verse? Also, Phil Lord and Chris Miller are making a Spider-Verse cartoon for TV. *dies*

    Avengers: Endgame *SPOILERS*

    Good on you. I just did a how-to-make comics talk at the library in the city I used to live. And you're right, ppl should absolutely use the library to read the comics they can't afford. In Canada and I assume other countries, the creators can actually claim royalties through a government program based on library readership.

    Haha, thanks Paul for reading my comment on Paul Zaza. As luck would have it I am commenting before I even finish listening to the episode.

    To the guy who called in wondering about poly, I'm poly. It's interesting sometimes. The conclusion Paul came to is fine but not really that much advice, so here's mine: - there's all kinds of poly. Some groups all have emotional and sexual connections to each other, some have setups where someone is a primary partner and someone is secondary, etc. etc. The most important factor in any poly relationship is open communication. You may choose to all sit down together and talk about how you feel and how you want it to work, and what kind of rules you should have, and then proceed accordingly if you can come to an agreement. Then keep checking in. - join Fetlife. Lots of poly people on there to talk to, lots of good advice and writing. - be honest. With yourself and your partners. If something isn't working, say so. You never know when someone will be willing to make an adjustment you need, or propose an alternative you haven't considered. - read Dan Savage or listen to his podcast. Good luck!
