  1. Today
  2. Yeah, I’m going to probably have to watch in sections.
  3. I am unable to watch Hamilton because Japan has Disney Deluxe with is Disney Plus but with a much more limited release schedule and offerings. Maybe in a few months. Also looking forward to this pick. This is one of those musicals again I always feel like I should watch because it's a classic but never have.
  4. I signed up for Netflix so that I didn't have to purchase this. I admit I don't watch it often. It was available for a while on Amazon Prime but isn't anymore. (I'm also letting my Prime subscription go.) I would be willing to host a Kast party later this week. Everyone can get together and decide what works for them. Keep in mind the movie is 3 hours long.
  5. Yesterday
  6. The Hardy Boys were hardly boys (when they traded condoms for all their toys...)
  7. "I got a hole in one!" said the fat man with the two donuts at the golf course
  8. Ok CBB fans, please help me out! I have a very distinct memory of an episode featuring Amy Poehler, in which she says the very specific phrase "Tits Akimbo." I've listened to every episode I can find featuring her, but none of them seem to feature this phrase. All I can remember about it is that this phrase was the peak of a hilarious buildup that I would love to experience once more. At this point, I am even questioning whether this was a CBB episode, but nonetheless I remain hopeful. Please help!
  9. You can pick your nose; thanks to the miracles of plastic surgery.
  10. It's important to remember that one of your friends has shit themselves more than anyone else and just because they were a baby doesn't mean they shouldn't be ridiculed.

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    Haha yes! When I heard hair shirt my mind jumped to the BNL song too. I went to a religious college and remember learning it's a shirt made of a rough, uncomfortable material that a religious person would wear as a form of self punishment. It's still kind of fitting the villain of this movie would fashion himself a hair coat. Although it reminded me more of a Cruella De Vil.
  12. Teamwork makes the dream work and dream work makes the meme twerk and meme twerk makes the cream jerk.

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    What a good boy. What a smart boy. My earliest memories of BNL (before I saw them live for the first and last time around 1992 I think?) is their covers of Bruce Cockburn's "Lovers in a Dangerous Time" for a tribute album and Public Enemy's "Fight The Power" on their original cassette. A lot of people still love the Cockburn cover (I'm not one of them) and the other one has not aged well...

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    One thing I don't think my fellow Canadians have pointed out about these movies (and indeed, pretty much all Canadian films and music and some other media) is the concept of "CanCon" - Canadian Content. Media companies are required to employ Canadian crews and resources in exchange for funding, grants, tax breaks, etc. Radio stations must play a certain percentage of Canadian music. TV stations and cable networks must show a certain percentage of Canadian programming. As I recall, the first Tommy Tricker film was co-sponsored by Canada Post, with kits that you could give kids to get them excited about stamp collecting (which, full disclosure, I absolutely did when I was a kid). This splendid website talks more about the Canada Post angle, and has entries on a lot of other goofy Canadian productions: http://www.canuxploitation.com/review/tommytricker.html As a result, we in Canada used to joke about how certain bands or films were "CanCon" fodder - they existed to create work for someone and maybe they would turn a profit, maybe not. "Your tax dollars at work," we would grumble. This complaint died down as the Canadian film and music industries matured and adopted American approaches to creating those media, especially once our undervalued currency started luring productions from the US to Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver for films and TV series, all of which needed experienced crews and support. Those "runaway" productions gave our crews valuable experience so that now, a lot of the time you can't tell (at least, not immediately) if something was made in Canada or not, and I suppose that helped with making them exportable to other countries. There is an extra wrinkle to that when it comes to Quebec, as I mentioned in a previous post, because most of their homegrown media is in French, and they don't have the same barrage of American TV and films that English-speaking Canada does. A lot of their imported media comes from France and Belgium, and that's where they export to as well, not including subbed or dubbed series that could come and go from anywhere.
  16. Oh shit, I could have sworn I checked, but I guess I missed it! Thank you!
  17. It's on Netflix btw!

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    When I looked up the other movies in the Tales for All series I was surprised to find I had seen one of them in school, Tommy Tricker and the Stamp Traveler. I remember it being pretty good, nothing too strange happened. It had magical elements, but there weren't these weird twists like in The Peanut Butter Solution. The Wikipedia entry says, "It is a children's film in which a young boy, Ralph, and his sister discover a magical ability to travel the world, riding within postage stamps. Complicated by a series of rules, they are soon lost in such far-flung places as Australia and China. Ralph is plagued by a debilitating stutter, and the film is essentially a coming-of-age story wherein Ralph can speak unfettered by the film's end." Based on these two movies, its seem like they try to teach kids lessons about overcoming obstacles, but the message gets overshadowed by these insane magical adventures. Oh and Rufus Wainwright is in this movie. He and his sister also did a couple songs for the soundtrack too.

    Episode 243 - The Peanut Butter Solution

    When I heard Jason say "hairshirt" my mind immediately went to the Barenaked Ladies' classic song about gender expectations, "What a Good Boy". These are some of the lyrics" I wake up scared I wake up strange I wake up wondering if anything in my life Is ever gonna change I wake up scared I wake up strange And everything around me stays the same It's the hair shirt I wear And this hair shirt is woven from It's woven from your brown hair Is it possible that one of the preeminent Canadian bands was influenced by one of the preeminent Canadian kids films?

  22. This is also available on hoopla—the public library streaming app—for free, if you have it.
  23. But would you mingle with a single Pringle?
  24. The streaming isn't on Movies Anywhere so you are limited to that service if you purchase it. There's also a 40th Anniversary edition DVD or Blu-Ray but there are mixed reviews as to the quality.
  25. I don't have a subscription but maybe it's available on Netflix? https://www.netflix.com/title/499456
  26. Now that you've seen Hamilton you can watch One Shot to Broadway on Amazon Prime.
