Yes, I think Paul said Cameron H about nine times.

Paul claims to be a sandwich king but claims he was elected. Kings aren't normally elected. I wasn't going to question his legitimacy but things aren't adding up.

Something's not adding up? I know just the guy, but you'll probably have to let him suck your blood and transform you into an unholy creature of the night. Cool?

Paul is not a ruler by divine right, like Louis XIV.

He's an elected monarch, like the Holy Roman Emperor (who was neither Holy nor Roman).

Hi guys! Just back from the Now Hear This Festival performance. (I went to the Javits Center ON PURPOSE, something I promised myself I'd never do.) Sad I couldn't meet up with any of you, but I am a strong independent woman who can go to podcasts alone.

I don't know when the ep will air (as you may have seen on Twitter it is the 1980 Neil Diamond remake of "The Jazz Singer" which was ROUGH to sit through). I made a sign and Paul pointed it out in the crowd, when June was announced, so when you hear that know it was me, purposefully being super nerdy to get on the podcast.

Also they did a meet and greet afterward and I was very sleepy but I said hey to the gang from the forums. Paul said he had a lot of fun with Cameron H today (how are you today, Cameron?).

I still quote/reference this sketch, if only to myself. A confluence of my nerdiness and Mike Myers being real funny as this absurd character.

If I went round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint threw a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

I'm fine, Elektra, how are you?

I'm glad you had fun! It was really sweet of you to even think about us! Yeah, I never thought being called a segregationist could make me laugh, but here we are. :)

Oh man, I am so jealous of anyone watching Miami Connection for the first time! My life has improved dramatically since I made "Against The Ninja" my morning alarm.



This is probably the last great unironically bad-good film. With films like Birdemic and The Room, although they have their unabashed champions (like me!), a large amount of their fanbase seem to be sort of complicit in (at the very least) ironic snark and (at worst) exploiting the delusions of a filmmaker who sincerely believed in their craft. I don't know; I'm approaching middle age and trying to reject the kind of kneejerk sarcasm and cynicism that has plagued pop culture since the 1990s.

Is that really a bad movie? I haven't seen it since I was a kid, but I LOVED the soundtrack. "Coming To America" is still a fucking jam and a half.
