  1. Oh shit! I didn't realize this! I just signed up for Stitcher premium recently and I've only scratched the surface of a long podcast backlog after a very long time of not being able to consume them very much. Thanks for the tip! I feel really dumb now! Not that I don't feel really dumb a lot of the time.
  2. Definitely agree that the casting was atrocious. Both of the leads seemed to be too young, and by that I mean they played the roles as if they were 14. It was like watching a big budget, sci-fi action reboot of Flowers in the Attic. The will-they-won't-they didn't work at all and I don't think any viewer could or would ever care if they did or not. Valerian came off more as a creepy, all-too-forward sexual-harassing stalker than a sincere romantic lead with a redemption story. Your Fifth Element comparison is pretty spot on, but it's like both of the leads were Bruce Willis in Hudson Hawk. His performance in Fifth Element was energetic and inspired in comparison. I think Clive Owen's performance in the movie was decent, considering what he was given to work with. He chewed up the scenery A TON, very akin to Gary Oldman in Fifth Element. I think he was just working with a totally shit script and acting across some really terrible partners. The thing about this movie that made me the most angry was that it had such amazing potential to be a really amazing sci-fi adventure, if the story was just contained and kept relatively simple. Instead Luc Besson (who is already a pretty lousy writer) tried to cram in an entire universe and seemingly 5 or 6 story-lines in a single film. Because he was such a fan, he got the misguided idea that he can bring a large chunk of a fairly expansive series of books all into 2.5 hours of film.
  3. Came on to recommend this movie as well. This one really should put Luc Besson in writing jail. I was really excited for it but it was total garbage. It would also fit perfectly into Paul's theory that any time a director tries to get his or her "passion project" completed after years of planning it out, it almost always fails tremendously. I'd love to hear a supercut of every time Laureline says "Valerian!" It's gotta be 50+. Also, having June and Jessica St Clair watch this would be amazing. They'd likely hit some sort of critical mass of sick and angry that could, in all likelihood, destroy all of Los Angeles.
  4. I love that Paul's version of Peter Gabriel sounds like a combination of Al Pacino and Cake Boss (Cake Boss!)

    Episode 416 - Silicone Bralley Poo Crew

    As a misogynist and a white supremacist, I'm cool with it

    Episode 416 - Silicone Bralley Poo Crew

    I kind of have to blame divadong for being offended. It's both hypocritical as well as stupid. Middleditch did almost half of the episode in a stereotypical "Southern" and "flaming homosexual" voice while playing a character that sucks dick for money. Divadong didn't seem to give two shits about that. Comedians use stereotype and hyperbole all the time to heighten the situation and create crazy, completely unrealistic characters. That's how things become funny. What matters is how they use stereotype and hyperbole. I don't think Middleditch was trying to make fun of Chinese people or gay people in the episode; he was just being ridiculous for a laugh. Before anyone feels offended by a character in a comedy show they need to actually think about the reason for the use of stereotype. If it's used maliciously to make fun of or attack a group of people, then yeah whoever is doing it needs to be called out as a bigot and an asshole (which is very relevant right now because many older white people decry "PC culture" in the US when they are actually just bummed it's not acceptable to be racist anymore). But if it's just being used as a stupid goof to make you laugh, be an adult about it and grow some thicker skin.

    Episode 416 - Silicone Bralley Poo Crew

    In this context I think it means "Let Out Liquid" And "LMFAO in my pants" would be "Let My Fucking Ass Open in My Pants"

    I would watch THE FUCK out of a show called "Thomas Middleditch: Turd Hunter" I expect to see it on Seeso very soon

    That's A T-Shirt!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the various musings by Scotty and pals on "That's A T-Shirt!" ideas as well as the "Is That A T-Shirt?" ideas. During almost every episode I get at least one of them that pops into my head as well. Do you have any "That's A T-Shirt!" moments that Scott or any of the guests have mentioned that you'd like to see someone give an attempt at rendering? Do you want to try to make one of those aforementioned t-shirt designs a reality? Do you have any of your own "That's A T-Shirt!" moments that you'd love to see visualized? Are there more questions like this I could ask? I thought it would be fun and interesting to have a thread where people share their "That's A T-Shirt!" moments and maybe try their hand at some designs. They don't have to be professional quality or anything - there are tons of sites that let you make your own designs really quickly and easily, so show us what you got! To get things started I made one from the recent episode "Shut the Fuck Door!" which inspired me to waste some time and make a design. Here it is! Tell me what you think!* * Note: Only positive opinions will be acknowledged, you dicks.
