    EPISODE 118 - Furious 7: LIVE

    After that story, question time: Did I miss it either in 6 or 7 or have the movies never officially addressed the disappearance of Santos and Leo from the crew/family after 5? I remember hearing they were left out because of contract disputes to be in 6, but they just sort of went away in terms of plot/importance...not that character continuity is a problem for this franchise or anything, but it sort of bugs me, especially with this whole "family" horseshit being the driving motivation for everyone now.

    EPISODE 118 - Furious 7: LIVE

    I saw it on opening night in a packed theater (alone; my wife doesn't get why these movies are so dumbly enjoyable) and was laughing hysterically at the flash-back wedding, Dom's dead, Michelle Rodriguez verbal CPR scene to the point that an elderly lady sitting next to me put her arm around my shoulder and said "he's gonna be alright". When I told her I was laughing, she looked at me like I was an insane person.
  3. Casually dropping that "Earwolf New York City" is a thing now.

    26 We Can't Dance Together

    Bummer, but please keep it up, Chad. I've enjoyed every episode. Don't let Shatner silence the truth.
  5. HDTGM fans, make sure and listen to Fitz Dog Radio's interview with June from last week. Very good and funny.

    Episode 218 — Electric Daisy Carnival

    The music charts being stagnant seem to be a function of the inclusion of streaming services, which have horrible algorithms that never seem to change for the "radio" playback (at least from personal experience). The genre stations/playlists from Pandora, for instance, flat out do not change. I teach classes at a gym and one of the popular choices of other coaches is the "Dance Cardio" station that has been the same 10 or so songs for the past year and a half, at least. If the chart includes streaming services that report those plays, nothing ever moves. Father John Misty's skewing of those algorithms on his SAP parody service is pretty much spot on.

    Episode 200.5 — 10/03/14 TWO CHARTED 139

    One of Howard's appearances on Go Bayside, he sang an entire Skokie Bennion, Jr/Country Boy Suede song. It's as great as you'd imagine.
