    As much as I love Rifftrax/MST3K, I am not sure if their type of humor would mesh all that well with HDTGM. Paul, June, and Jason all come from an improv background whereas the MST3K guys seem very precise and methodical in their humor. Although, that being said, I would love to be proven wrong. Currently, I would love for Brian Posehn to return with Gerry Duggan to discuss X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Based on their history with Deadpool (and Paul's own for that matter), I would be interested to hear their take on this piece of garbage.

    Episode 98 — LOL: LIVE!

    In all fairness to those that asked the questions, they did just watch LOL, so I think they can be cut some slack. I know my mind was addled for days afterward...

    Episode 98 — LOL: LIVE!

    A few more things: First of all, from now on my go to answer when confronted with something I don't understand is going to be, "It's Millennials, bro. It's Millennials..." Secondly, Scotch and Coke is indeed a drink and was reportedly the drink of choice for the Beatles when they first hit America. Her grandmother is probably in that age bracket, so maybe it was at the apex of its popularity during the early sixties. Finally, Battle of the Bands is also a thing. I was in one myself many years ago. We came in 11th out of 18 bands, so a solid C- for us. We did get high marks for stage presence though, which is like being told we had "a great personality." What it was not though was the multiple month, bracketed tournament portrayed in the movie. Maybe 6 hours or so all told.

    Episode 98 — LOL: LIVE!

    Bravo! I had a legit "LOL" at this! Also, not really my story to tell, but I didn't want it to get lost in the shuffle. I was just scrolling through the alternate LOL thread and I would be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to our own Maximiliano who did the due diligence and also watched the French version. Max gave us a full run down of it, but I had forgot this little nugget of information. Apparently, at the end of the French version it says, "Based on a true story...lol" I'll let you all chew on that for the rest of the day. Thanks Maximiliano! You truly are a hero like no other!

    Episode 98 — LOL: LIVE!

    You'll have to forgive me, but I haven't seen this movie since it was on Netflix so my memory might be a bit hazy. I imagine it is kind of like being a terrible car accident--the scars remain, even if the event itself is a blur... Anyway, did anyone else think that the guy web web cam girl was removing the gizzards for (a new masturbation term I'm coining) was going to turn out to be the hot teacher? I think, in terms of story and character arc, it would have worked better if it had been. Even when she sees Screech 2.0 wearing the same shirt at the party, I was convinced it was a misdirect. It's not like two people can't purchase the same shirt... In my version of things, she would have eventually found out it was him and they almost have sex. Then, just as they are about to do it, she has a sudden realization of how icky the whole situation really is and breaks it off before it goes any further. I think this would have generated more pathos for web cam girl when she discovers that having a dream and the reality of achieving said dream can at times be two vastly different things. Instead we learn two things: Hot girls should totally give pervy nerds a chance, because they might be able to deliver the goods. Which is... nice I guess? and If you have sex enough times with a person you don't particularly like or have anything else in common with, eventually you will break down and settle into a relationship that might--to an emotionless being unfamiliar with the concept--be construed as "love."

    Episode 98 — LOL: LIVE!

    Great episode! I have written on Miley's diary in the movie before, but it wasn't really brought up in the episode other than to say it existed. My question is why--in a movie that hinges so much on digital interaction--would Lola (I am not calling her Lol, because despite what she claims in the movie, her friend's rarely call her that) be writing in a pen and paper diary? Wouldn't she have a online diary? And, yes, I understand it was so Demi could stumble on it and create some conflict, but couldn't the same thing be achieved by writing a scene where Demi's character needs to get something off of her laptop and Miley simply forgot to close the page out? It just seems kind of anachronistic is all...kind of like scoring your 2008 French movie trailer about modern teenagers with mid-nineties songs by Blur and Supergrass. Where was David Guetta and Daft Punk?

    "The Sylvester Stallone Podcast"

    I agree with you that everything would need to be brought in a bit, but I doubt it will get finished at this point. I just thought I would share it as it stood because I liked where it was going. (Yeah, that was my wife's idea to put June's head on Walker's body She wanted her to come off just as kick-ass as Paul and Jason.)

    "The Sylvester Stallone Podcast"

    Thanks Jarry,! Actually, my wife (also a fan of HDTGM) is a professional graphic designer and I cajoled her into making them for me. She was working on the below as a submission for a new HDTGM logo a few weeks ago, but she got really busy and I think it has more or less fallen to the wayside. We had originally discussed adding a bunch of former guests in the background... Still, I think it is pretty good and should see the light of day even if it is only a mock up.

    Here are a couple of posters/t-shirt ideas for Paul's podcast.

    Christmas suggestions

    Thanks for posting Quasar! First of all, how nightmarish is Santa in that? I also second "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer" for all the reasons you stated above, and really any Rankin/Bass special. In Rudolph, and in a lot of them, Santa is not really nice at all! I think there is one where he has a cold and he is like, "Well, Christmas is cancelled" and just generally acts like a d-hole. One of the reasons I really support these specials, especially in the context of HDTGM, is how many hours must have gone into making them. You would think in that amount of time someone would say, "Wait a sec, is this the message we really want to put out there?"

    Episode 97.5 — Minisode 97.5

    You have no idea! I thought I had purged myself from this dreck, then I heard that damn song again and it all came crashing back.
  14. Cameron H.

    LOL

    Agreed. It works almost perfectly to the riff from The Fresh Prince of Bel-air.

    Christmas suggestions

    Y'know, I actually wouldn't mind if they did a few of the messed up Christmas cartoon specials. There's one, I think it was called "Twas the Night Before Christmas" (based on the poem) about a bunch of mice. The premise is that Santa Claus is going to bypass this town because one of the main mouse's sons (He has glasses so of course he is a nerd/intellect) writes an op-ed about how Santa doesn't exist. Then the whole movie is about how his "free thinking" and his unwillingness to conform with everyone else has ruined Christmas for everyone. So, y'know, exactly the kind of message you want to send to a small child.

    LOL? It's like Christmas came early! Actually, I guess this would technically be the Thanksgiving episode. Somehow that feels entirely appropriate...

    Christmas suggestions

    Whoa, whoa, whoa--Galaxy Quest is a damn fine movie, otherwise I would probably agree with you... As for Christmas I am leaning toward Trapped in Paradise, the Christmas Vacation sequel, or Ernest Saves Christmas.

    Episode 97 — Rhinestone: LIVE!

    Wait a minute! They went over Stallone's triumphant song at the end of the movie in the podcast, but what was not mentioned was that the song he sings that ultimately wins the movie is not the same version he starts out singing. Initially, he starts singing the same song, but as a dirge-like ballad, which goes over--to no great surprise--poorly. He then says something to the effect of "If I am going to die up her, I am going to die my way!" Queue Stallone going rogue and pulling a Tony Manero. So....Dolly's plan to get her contract dissolved and preserve her virtue was to have a man with no discernible singing talent go out in front of a room of professional hecklers and have him croon a tender and earnest version of "Stay Out of My Bedroom?" Which, by the way, at the tempo he is performing it and with the repetition of the chorus at the end of the song, would have easily pushed it to a twelve minute song. I hate to say it, but are we 100% certain Dolly wanted to win the bet?

    Episode 97 — Rhinestone: LIVE!

    So during one of the duets (I can't remember if it is the one with Wild Otters or the group that looks like rejects from Dr, Teeth and the Electric Mayhem) as Dolly and Sly are busy spaz dancing and exuding a raw sexual energy not seen since Mick Jagger and David Bowie urged us to dance in some streets, one of the band members goes into a blistering guitar solo and Sly holds his mic up to the guy's electric guitar... He realizes that the sound that guy is producing is coming from the amplifier, right? It's as if the director said, "Hey, everything is great, but could you, I don't know, look like more of a doofus?" No, scratch that. That had to be an actor decision all the way. Also, while I am on the topic of sexual chemistry, I know they were benign kisses, but every time Sly and Dolly would kiss on stage I couldn't help thinking: "Ewwww, gross."

    Episode 97 — Rhinestone: LIVE!

    If nothing else, this movie has confirmed for me that Stallone is some kind of extra-dimensional being sent to our Earth to mimic hu-man emotions. To set the scene, Stallone has had his his slow dance with Parton and they have shared a quasi-moment, he then drives her home in HER truck*, they have their botched kiss courtesy of Matthew Cuthbert, and then there is a real Waltons-esque moment where there is an exterior of the house and everyone is saying goodnight to one another. At the end of that scene, we hear Nick say, "I hate hillbillies..." What in the Hell? I mean, you would think at this point of the movie Nick would have grown, if not an appreciation for, a certain level of respect for this woman. Instead the implication is, "I can't stand you, your lifestyle, your music, family or friends. I mean, yeah, I'll fuck you, that goes without saying, but otherwise you suck." The line is also said not as a close up or as if being muttered, but at the same volume he just said goodnight to these two individuals who have put him up in their home, suggesting that they 100% just heard him call them a couple of hicks. *This is an activity that seems to happen a lot in movies that I simply just don't get. Look at Bella in the Twilight movies. Edward and Jacob are always driving her around in her truck. Why!? There is never even a question of it. The woman in the movie just kind of tosses the keys to the man as if to imply, "I know it's my car, but you have a penis which somehow makes you more qualified to drive my own vehicle."

    Episode 97 — Rhinestone: LIVE!

    I'm sorry, but isn't that kind of backward thinking? If we had to pay for HDTGM, then yeah, I could maybe see your point, but since it is free, then I don't mind paying what is usually only a few dollars for a copy. For instance, Rhinestone is currently only $2.87 on Amazon. What else can you really get for $2.87?

    Yeah, I think the assumption was it would be Thursday since that is when it dropped last week. I just remember him saying "later" in the week.

    "The Sylvester Stallone Podcast"

    Like many of you, I am surprised by this turn of events. I woke up this morning just expecting to listen to the new Stallone podcast, not a whole new network. I am sure all of our questions will be answered in the coming days. However, assuming he reads these posts, I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to Paul Scheer on his new position! I know he wouldn't be in this given this job if it not for his talent and hard work, so good on you, Paul! I already see a couple new shows I will be subscribing too and look forward to more from Wolfpop.

    Is it just me, but does the guy in this scene look like Rick Perry doing a Steve Martin impression? Or maybe just Rick Perry doing a Rick Perry impression....
