    Episode 226 - Body of Evidence: LIVE!

    I stand with June. If this man was SO unhealthy that strenuous sex could kill him he would know that. It's then his decision to take part in that possibly deadly activity. While the cocaine in the nosespray ultimately played a major role in his death, he would have to know that he was taking his life in his own hands . To be that unwell you would have to know your health risks. To some extent he knew and accepted that he might die, much like an extreme sports fan. It didn't keep him from his activities but he had to acknowledge that fact.

    Episode 224.5 - Minisode 224.5

    I cannot express how much having something like The Jane Club could have helped my mother. My mom was a single mother and was also very dedicated to her career. She also had to deal with a nurodivergent child. On her own . I wonder what she could have achieved if she had had a place like The Jane Club where she could go to work and take me along. I remember when she was a in quality auditing for a bloodbanking company/ organization that she would bring me to work with her on the weekends and I would literally wonder the building going into any unlocked room I could find like an absolute feral menace. I realize now as an adult they 100% probably had security cameras and my mom 100% got yelled at. The only thing that makes me feel a bit sad about the Jane Club is from what I know you have to pay to be a member and it looks pretty pricey so it makes me think about mothers like my mom who would have benefited greatly from such a place but could never have been able to afford it. Hopefully in the future they make scholarships or grants available for care givers who are less financially well off.

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    Have you ever been on pain medication and misread your own tattoo? Because *I* have. My tattoo is fulgens stella. Bright star. I can't wait to be healed up from my neck injections and back to my normal dosage because wow .

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    Oh I'm very familiar with Manos: The Hand of Fate thanks to Thanksgiving marathons of MST3K. #RIPPeppy! Though maybe dying in the desert was the best way to go in the movie....

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    Have we discussed that her name is literally Star Star? Stella is the Latin for star. Random fact about me : I have a tattoo on my wrist that says Stella Fulgens which means Star Bright.
  6. This is a very specific musical and I for one support that.

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    For a Star Wars rip off that features prominent bikinis I want to take a moment to remember my favorite ( and possibly only) Star Wars fact I know thanks to Carrie Fisher's fantastic book Wishful Drinking. Apparently George Lucas thinks space is an underwear free zone because "you go to space and you become weightless...But then your body expands??? But your bra doesn't — so you get strangled by your own bra." (This might be my favorite of many amazing parts of Wishful Drinking). Carrie wrote that was how she wanted her obituary to read. Drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra. I still think about that line sometimes because it's just so utterly Carrie.

    Episode 224: Starcrash: LIVE!

    I have a very silly, embarrassing, and ( in my mind) hilarious confession to make. When I heard the name of the movie I misheard Paul and my brain autofilled in what it thought he said. So instead of Starcrasher *I* heard Starchaser. This is funny because for some reason I can't explain I was convinced that was the name of what might be Disneyland's worst ride ever Superstar Limo. No matter how many times I am told it's not I can't seem to grasp that. I basically thought that this was a Pirates Of The Caribbean scenario based on terrifying C list celebrity puppets stuck in a neon hellscape. I went full June you guys. I went FULL June.

    Dan (the highlight of the film for me) is a toxicologists not whatever they called him that made me, in hindsight, unreasonably angry. Venomolgist?

    Musical Mondays Week 76 I Kissed a Vampire

    How was Sarah dressing like a goth? A grey t-shirt black kegging or jeans and a black vest do not a goth make. This is goth slander and I for one will not have it! I loved the sexy bad girl vampires outfits they were just so wholesome. I love these types of things and their versions of what a "bad" girl/guy wears or what is fashion risk. It's for kids so it has to be tame but still be "wild". So it's usually a shorter skirt over legging things or layered tops... So much layering. So many needless ridiculous accessories! I love to hate it.

    Musical Mondays Week 76 I Kissed a Vampire

    How the fuck did he find this therapist? Does she specialize in vampires? She said something about keeping the neck brace on because this wasn't her first time or something like it was to protect her neck from him or help him by not seeing her jugular ( Yet she's wearing it during the phone call. So was she attacked by a former patient? Is that what she meant?!) . She was always 100% on board no questions about the idea this kid thinks he was turned into a vampire by a weird exchange student ( and maybe sexuality assaulted?) . Also fully ok with hearing that he supposedly had his teeth ground down even though that would do nothing to stop the jaw pain he was experiencing. Like not worrying that her client is making rash cosmetic surgery decisions... Especially if he is in fact a new vampire. Do we think Blondie ( I refuse to learn his name) has vampire caused body dismorphia?

    If they ever do Showgirls I'm just going to take over the boards. That's just how it's going to be. I'm not even sorry. I've spent too long trying to understand Elizabeth Berkley's motivation for acting like an electrocuted salmon during the pool sex scene. I'm also pretty sure Nomie was raised by rabid wolverines or some other animal based on her eating,claw dance work, and fondness for dog food.

    Episode 223.5 - Minisode 223.5

    I mean I have lots of time but I'm unique in my situation. I noticed someone kind of stole one from me in the Hercules one but I'm not 100% sure if they did because it was based on Greek mythology. In their defense I did a deeper dive into the topic then they did but some of it sounded similar but again, Greek myths. I'm fine either way because it's one of my favorite subjects and I will read up on it for fun whenever I get the tiniest reason to do so, so I didn't mind much if they did. Also I think it's weird for the ones that I have heard verbatim copying on the calls because I feel like they took the time to find something but get none of the joy of interacting with everyone in the group. A hollow victory in a way. Sure you got on the episode but most of the fun is on here! I would rather make a bunch of posts that are never on the episode but I get to talk to you guys and start an interesting or fun discussion than get one voice mail played. I *live* for that shit. I think the boards bring an element to each movie. I'm now like " Oh boy what are my Earwolf buds gonna say about this scene or this weird fact I know, or my still strong and undying suspicion of dolphins ( which will never die!!!)!" I love hearing about what the movie is called in Japan from @Cam Bert and @taylorannephoto feminist takes. I have fallen in love with @Cameron H. and your wife's podcast which I would never have found if I hadn't joined. I also enjoy your takes on movies too. The boards are wonderful and I love you all. Viva la boards ! The phone messages sure as fuck don't have a hedgehog!

    Episode 223.5 - Minisode 223.5

    I find a lot of times alcohol just let's out the thing that you want deep down because it lowers your inhibitions. You say how you REALLY feel about your aunt Susan and her home shopping network addiction. I also think women feel the need to let everyone know " He's not normally like that he's a super nice guy! So great ! It's fineee that he won't stop staring at me and always is a bit too sexual in his banter. That's how he jokes! Great guy" type thing. We constantly apologize for the bare minimum not out right rapists in our lives. So what if every so often they get drunk and feel you up? It's a lapse. They're a GOOD guy

    Episode 223.5 - Minisode 223.5

    I'm not going to lie I was a a little bit sad that my carefully researched statistics weren't mentioned but I figured that it was a bummer of a topic so that was why. I have been really getting annoyed by the callers coming in at the Q and A section because I feel it cuts the flow. I feel like if they did the phone calls at the start of the section it might be easier to deal with.

    Episode 223.5 - Minisode 223.5

    Ok no. Paul she has to tell her friend! Or at the VERY least speak to the fiancee. This is not ok. Being drunk does not absolve this behavior. The fiance *should* be the one to speak with her and talk about his transgression. It's not fair for her to carry that burdon. I'm so sick of holding on to these little transgressions. They weigh on your soul. Her friendship will be tainted by this and she and her friend have done nothing wrong yet their relationship will suffer for it. Worst of all her friend won't know the cause.

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    I just wanted to add I'm also really grateful that @Smigg., @GrahamS. and everyone else feels safe enough to talk about these things here and I'm so sorry so many of us have dealt with such bullshit. I want to say that my personal experience with sexual harassment and assault didn't really start until my 20s but I know that if I really though about it it probably went back much later. There are so many small things we condition ourselves to brush off that if we really let ourselves think about them aren't that small. They can be pretty big. My lighter note is that it's day two of my favorite week of the year: Fat Bear Week! Every year Katmai National Park has a contest on their Facebook page for the fattest bear in their park. I urge you all to head over for a truly wholesome and bodacious time! I feel like maybe I should call in to let Paul know since he loves the Country Bears and these are also, technically, fat bears out in the country, but I worry that it's too late and he might not get the message this week. https://m.facebook.com/KatmaiNPP/?ref=m_notif&notif_t=feedback_reaction_generic

    EPISODE #223 - Disclosure (1994)

    Maybe it's just me but did any one else worry about people getting discombobulated and lost in the V.R world? I would very easily get confused by that many miles on miles of weird empty (definitely haunted) hallways and would "wander" around in confusion for who knows how long looking for the room for my file if I didn't "fall" to my death first. Now that I think about it this would 100% give me motion sickness. On the other hand what a great excuse to slack off from work "Sorry I'm late for this very boring and useless meeting! I got lost in the M. C Escher Hell Scape... Again "
