    *Mortal Kombat Voice* IMPRESSIVE

    Episode 80 — Jack Frost: LIVE!

    Holy shit Mantzoukas was hilarious in this one. It's so great when he references nerdy shit, gets applauded, then bashes people for applauding. Kills me every time.
  3. I got my macbook pro back in 2007, and two years ago my battery swelled up like that. It started ballooning and messed up the trackpad. It wouldn't respond to touch or click because the cables were messed up. The pad itsself didn't expand like Thomas' though. So I took the battery out and have used it for two years without a battery. Everything is fine. I also revieved my improv manual yesterday. It's much heftier than I expected, can't wait to start reading.

    Episode 263 — Hollywild

    Great episode, lost it badly during a couple of Marx's jokes. By the way I just watched House of Pies live, and really recommend it. Eugene Cordero was really funny in it.

    Episode 114 — Live from UCB-LA

    Starting off with a bang. 2k14, the year of I4H. I really, really want Huebel and Mantzoukas on the same episode.

    Episode 161 — FroGoo

    I think the freezing sperm tangent might be my favorite Who Charted/Howard moment. I'm fully on board with Howard, you really can be older than your mom.

    Episode 5 — New Posse

    How the fuck did I not see this episode before?! Ian doing Leonard is one of my favorite things ever.

    Episode BO2013.3 — Best of 2013 Pt 3

    *fake outrage* Point of order! Point of order! - Garry and Gillian met in Words Without Friends, not Garry Unmarried. - Neil first rapped in the 2011 Halloween episode. I had a feeling that's how the episode with Wright/Frost/Pegg came about. It's so great that they came out and did the show. Hopefully they come back at some point.

    Episode BO2013.1 — Best of 2013 Pt 1

    He didn't play Charles Dickens. He played Clement Clarke Moore. Best episodes in my opinion: Plato - Mantzoukas Bronte - Jessica St. Clair Burroughs/Doyle - Chris Tallman episodes Wodehouse/Behan - Brian Stack episodes Marquis de Sade - Andy Daly The Authors of the Gospels Tolkien - Matt Walsh Shelley - Laraine Newman Dickens/O'Henry - Mark Evan Jackson/Hal Lublin

    Chicago Shows?

    If they go to Chicago they should try to get the Redlettermedia guys as guests.

    Joe's Apartment (1996)

    I liked the movie. It's not like it was supposed to be amazing. It was based on shorts they aired between music videos... It's not like they submitted to Cannes. They knew it was a small, weird, indie movie. Pretty competent if I remember right.
  13. Funny episode, lots of great stuff between scenes. I wonder how many people know The Vacant Lot these days?

    Episode 262 — 2013 Holiday Spectacular

    Amazing episode. Scott catching and clarifying Jason's list joke was so fucking funny.
  15. Damn, Matt was going off on this stuff. I'm sure I'm not alone in saying that I'd listen to an all 'what's bothering you' podcast. I think a big reason why people don't know what's happening in music is the fact that there is no cultural funnel or touchstone anymore. With access to everything online, and everybody being entitled to their opinion, it's overwhelming. Love it or hate it, MTV back when they played music (albeit still not super independent), played enough varied stuff to pique people's interest which caused them to go further into that genre. They cycled in new stuff constantly, had weird lists, had bands hosting shows and playing their favorites, etc. Now everybody has their own blog about what's the best, instead of one Rolling Stone issue. It's just too hard to find a jumping off point for a lot of people now. The 'buying one song' phenomenon pisses me off as well. If you like somebody, odds are you'll like the other stuff they did. If I find a creative person I like, I go through their backlog of work. One thing that I think suffers with the 'one song' fad is that it theoretically could lead to the end of concept albums. Guys like Zappa or The Residents carefully crafting full albums on a running theme or story have no place in a one song era. That fucking sucks. Some people don't watch comedies, but watch the Emmy's. They see the Big Bang Theory or Two and a Half Men winning awards as the representative of comedy year in and year out... That's not attracting new viewers. We know those CBS shows have run forever, give someone else a shot. Do I need to see Kobe Bryant in the all-star game again, or do I want to see Damian Lillard? Reward the people that put in work, don't just support the already supported.

    Episode 67 — Baby Donut

    Speaking of K Records, I recommend checking out the band Lake. They've had a couple songs in Adventure Time if that means anything to anyone. This is a great throwback video too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J1N-hCZJm70

    Be Kind Rewind

    Rogen wrote Green Hornet too though... Gondry did it for the $$$, because of his visual style I think he could make a great action movie if given the right amount of control. I love Be Kind Rewind. It was marketed as a wacky comedy, but it wasn't that at all. Not amazing, but had a great vibe and some great parts.

    Episode 111 - Six Inch Witch

    This is what they meant by 'embeded' if you haven't looked it up. Just a small piece of whatever game used stuff placed in the card. It's tough to describe if you've never seen one. Congrats. I'm totally cool with the concept of telling that trumpet playing to shut up, but that dude definitely went too far over the line. The whole 'almost going to hit him with a bag' thing and getting in his face. He's lucky the trumpet player didn't go off and wail on him. The personal space invasion and threatening gestures would probably let the trumpet player face no jail time if he socked him. Also holy crap, could that guy drop any more names? Somebody check his pocketlining for holes. Just to reiterate, I love silence, but he went too far.

    Episode 261 — Nubile Agape

    Just to add to this, I think it was Dan Harmon in a Community commentary who said he noticed that a lot of black people would call vampires 'Draculas'.

    Mystery Science Theater 3000

    I also have to mention that I hit up the Rifftrax live even a few days ago. They riffed Santa Claus Conquers the Martians and a brand new Christmas short about toys coming to life. It was great. Well worth the frightening drive in torrential rain and the 12.50 ticket. That was my first Rifftrax live and I recommend it. I was shocked to see a 40% full theater in the middle of Maine. MST3K has the reach of The Empire.

    Bad TV: Derek/Ja'mie: Private School Girl

    For the record Kids in the Hall is my favorite sketch show. The Birthday Boys, while hit and miss (like all sketch) has really impressed me. I thought I would hate it. They're bringing things in the right direction. No host segments, no stand up bits, just sketch. They're kind of a Mr. Show/Human Giant hybrid. All I can say is I've enjoyed it more than CBB this season... Blasphemy, I know.

    Bad TV: Derek/Ja'mie: Private School Girl

    I can definitely see the 'too much' of the character thing. One of the reasons SHH was so good was because right when you'd get a little tired of one character, the energy would completely change just by cutting to someone else. It really wasn't a problem for me with Ja'mie though. I was kind of shocked at how much I was laughing... Probably just because I'm a bit burnt out on all the regular US stuff at the moment. He seems to be doing solo shows now, because his teaser at the end of the run of Ja'mie was for a Jonah spinoff. I think maybe 2-3 characters is the magic number. Have you seen the whole series yet or just the ones that have aired here? That might change your mind, or not haha.

    Bad TV: Derek/Ja'mie: Private School Girl

    Strongly disagree about Ja'mie. I've watched the whole series online since it just started here in the states. (I haven't seen Derek and probably won't.) I think Ja'mie was Lilley's second strongest show behind Summer Heights High... Given Summer Heights High was astoundingly good. What was so different about her character to you? She was still horrid, vapid, rude, puts on a face like she's doing something charitable yet it's for her own gain. I think it was on par with what we've seen of her in the other shows. I love that they brought the same actress back to play her mom in all three shows, and that her friend from her first school in WCBH appears in all three too. How can you not love lines like, "I wish I would've drowned you as a child"? He absolutely nails the teen girl to a frightening degree. It made me rewatch Summer Heights High stuff, and in one of the bonuse features you see him flip the switch into character and it is amazing. The only other time I remember seeing someone snap into character was Bill Hader on the Human Giant 24 hour marathon. Rank in my book: 1. Summer Heights High 2. Ja'mie 3. We Can Be Heroes 4. Angry Boys

    Episode 261 — Nubile Agape

    I don't want to be negative or pile on, but I echo what you said. ----- Also Scott, sorry to burst the bit, but meatus is pronounced me-8-iss. My Aaron Neville impression was always just an impression of Horatio's impression.

    Just stop.
