I gotta back up my man Scott on that Coldplay record. Regardless of what you think of Coldplay, that was one of the best albums of the year.
And yeah, their Unbroken song is pretty lame.

In more important news, The Almighty Daughter has potench to be one of the best mini eps

I wish they had Todd Glass in for this one, because I'd love to hear his reaction to Nicki Minaj.

Saw this ep this morning and almost cried.
So much "content" this week! Thanks Scott.

2 minutes in and Jesus and the c- word in the same sentence. I love this show!
I feel like they missed some thing when speaking of "Postcards from Thedge."

Me and Scott have a similar shoe/sock game going. Which Scott? I'll never tell.

I'm looking at the 1:50:37 running time and wondering how they could fill this up with U2 news? Maybe they finally got some fuckin' shirts? Maybe Huey Lewis and the News will drop by? Y'know, U2-related stuff. The mind boggles at the possibilities when these two bring their comprehensive and encyclopedic knowledge of U2 to bare on the World. :D

Thanks for the early Christmas Gift, Scott and Scott!

Now, I just gotta finish downloading and listen to it.
To embed clips, use "[xxmedia] [xx/media]" (remove the xx) tags, and chop off the 's' from "https://" at the beginning of Youtube URLs. Thanks @Vince_Frost. And thanks signature, so now I won't forget it!

Also, favorite HDTGM moment: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1BTk9pesr5V

5 minutes in and its already insane. 2 eps of The Almighty Daughter, 1 ep of The Almighty Dollar, 1 ep of Talkin About Money and a classic ep of I Love Films. I am not sure I will be able to make it through this one.

there isn't a more genuine Scotty Auks than the one who feels obligated to defend his music preferences <3

Early Christmas present. Or is this the first of 8 crazy nights of U2? I gotta say, I'm rooting for Judaism. I can't wait to listen!

The brilliance of the song choices for Oliver Subpodcasts never ceases to amaze me.

The real tragedy of Bono's bike accident: it robbed us of a UTU2TM episode.

Scott and Scott's "Viva la Vida" cover made me choke at my desk.

I miss 2's clues........in other news, that Springsteen cover of 'Streets' was fucking terrible, unless he was actually dropping a Bruce deuce, in which case I would give it a C+
