  6. Derek Mears portrayed one of the most famous slashers of all time, Jason Voorhees in the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th. Derek joins Matt to talk about his action hero/cartoon character approach to the character, identifying with the young Tommy in Friday the 13th Part IV: The Final Chapter, and why the original ending of the film didn’t test well with audiences. Derek also tells us about encountering a curious Harrison Ford while on the set of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, how he became a Classic Predator in Predators, and his experimental live improv action show The Resistance. Plus, Matt investigates which fictional character from cinema has killed the most people in a new segment called I Was Scared Too. The Resistance is a completely improvised action movie performed live on stage every Sunday night at 9pm at The Comedy Sportz Theater in Los Angeles.

Justice Scalia decides Hell is too politically correct. Justice Roberts decides he is smarter than you and everyone decides to watch the new warm and wacky ABC sitcom Full Court. Here on Howl
  12. The scrappy young Supreme Court decides “No-one is Supremer than us, right?” starts the Civil War, determines how much blackness in your ancestry makes you black and therefore members of a separate race (1/8th); and establishes the legal principle of Stare Decisis.

  20. Hi My Babies!!! Are any of y'all coming to Now Hear This? Should we have a meetup?! I was wondering if anyone had any interest in a forum meetup during the conference? I would be happy to help schedule something with an official time and place. But I needed to know if there is any interest or if anyone has ideas for times and days that would work. If everyone would prefer to stay a username and not a face I totally understand, but I thought it might be fun. Let me know what you think!
  21. Of course it's cool! Good looking out! I would never ban you for fixing an oversight like this. No worries
