    Episode 5 — Analyze Phish Episode 3

    Masterstroke for Harris! Including Adam Scott, who could be convinced to enjoy everything from Cannibal Corpse to Enya as long as the sound isn't "muddy," gave Harris some added cache with Hot Saucerman (which I'm pretty sure is the name of a Phish song).

    Episode 128 — Coach? Coach? Coach?

    I loved how two guests got to know each other by playing a game that one didn't understand and the other hates. High comedy drama. And ditto the compliments about the Foam Corner outro theme song timing, that was outstanding. Lastly Hank Williams Jr saying "Fuck. Youuuuuuu" needs to be an alert on my phone.

    Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009)

    I would like to lend my support. This movie is insane and yet it's possible that it's legitimately amazing. http://www.avclub.com/articles/bad-lieutenant-port-of-call-new-orleans,40124/ To pitch it to Paul, I stress that this movie is a remake directed by Werner Herzog, who never saw the original movie, who strapped a camera to an iguana and asked Nic Cage for two hours of his best coke-addled improvisation. Oh, and Xzibit is in it.

    Episode 2 — Analyze Phish Episode 2

    Great podcast. I've tagged along to a bunch of Phish shows, and they're fun. I recommend that everyone sees them live. But, I will never listen to them on my iPod no matter how desperate the circumstances. People keep saying that Harris should push the jams on Scott. No, no, no. Push the live show! Buy him some tickets. Seeing them live is fun because the fans are hilarious looking/acting, everyone is friendly, the music is upbeat, there are long jams where you can hang out with your friends. Plus you're eating carnival food and stoned. Expecting Scott to be converted to Phish after listening to Trey noodle for an hour is insane. Even fans wouldn't listen to that. Trey isn't Stevie Ray Vaughn, but his solos fit the scene and the vibe perfectly. Even Phish fans only listen to the records because it reminds them of the live show. It's almost never the other way around. Harris, I was converted to Phish (live) seeing them at Great Woods in 1999. They started with Foreplay/Long Time by Boston. Then they segued seamlessly into Down With Disease. If you can find a decent recording of that, I think that would be a good sales pitch. Thinking about that show makes me gaze out the window with a wistful smile, and I can't say about many bands. http://phish.net/setlists/?d=1999-07-12

    Maybe you guys could re-enact and re-imagine the worst example of dialogue in the movie?

    Q&A w/ Paul Scheer Thread

    Hey Paul! Love your stuff. I know that you will never run out of great movies to talk about for the podcast, but do you ever worry that the golden era of truly bad movies has passed us by? It seems like most modern movies realize that they are ridiculous and do a little wink (Crank franchise, or your Pirannah 3D, not a criticism because I love all those movies) or have an attitude of, "screw you, we know it's bad but we're printing money" (Grown Ups, Paul Blart, etc). But even the best action movies from the 70's all the way through the 90's have some amazing unintentionally hilarious components. Face/Off has a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes but hinges on a supercriminal and a supercop trading faces without telling their families. Con Air is a popular action comedy that has scene where escaped pedophile murderer Steve Buscemi reforms his serial killin' ways because he meets a beautiful and unchaperoned little girl living on an abandoned airfield that understands him. Anyway, look forward to the podcast every other week! Give my best to your co-hosts.

    I know, it's a 94% on Rotten Tomatoes but no one can take this movie seriously. It has two of the greatest overacting performances from two of the greatest overactors of our time, Ridiculous Cage and John Travolta. Also, its premise is more ludicrous than Crank and Crank 2 combined. Unlike the Crank franchise, however, the entire film is played straight. There isn't a single "we're in on the joke, too" moment throughout. If you're not convinced yet, a crucial scene involves *spoiler alert* 1) Nick Cage 2) a prison cafeteria 3) violent hysteria and 4) magnetic boots. Go get 'em, team!
