  1. I know people were complaining about June using her politics in the HDTGM feed but I was excited to listen to this one. Love Leah Remini since she was on Saved by the Bell and continually impressed with Mike Rinder. (I am fascinated by the fact that he used to do bad things for Scientology. There is a BBC doc by John Sweeney where they basically give Sweeney and mental breakdown by harassing him continually. And now he and Sweeney are friends! It’s kind of inspirational in this very partisan world.) anyway, one note. Should have invited Leah on as a guest! She’d be hilarious.

    Episode 258.5 - Minisode 258.5

    I guess this forum is irrelevant now. I do have an Audible account, but if people want to listen to a lot of audiobooks, I highly recommend Libro.fm or your local library. Not only is Amazon, the owner of Audible (and Mercari, i’ll add) problematic in it’s own right, Audible has recently been accused of a lax return policy being used to cheat authors out of royalties. Further, all those “Audible originals” that they promote are not made available to libraries the way most audiobooks are. So if you support libraries and librarians, get your audiobooks there instead!

    I loved the “deleted scene”. Didn’t like the talk of moving to Discord.

    Episode 258 - A Gnome Named Gnorm

    I don’t want to remember Jerry Orbach this way.
  5. I THOUGHT that, like Genie in Aladdin, he could only do what other people wished for. But then there were times he ordered soldiers around and they just listened, so that confused me. You are correct that the rules were unclear. There also seemed to be some confusion between “wants” and “wishes.” Again if we use the “Aladdin” model, he has to say my second wish is... etc. but I do think Cheetah saying she wants to be an apex predator was supposed to count as a wish. Perhaps because the dreamstone is designed to create chaos and not actually to grant wishes, it had very loose policies. I also wondered about timezones. Because why would everyone be awake to hear Lord and Diana talk to them? Do they not e it’s this world. What do we think? Russia was awake. So was the US East Coast, Egypt, I think China?
  6. I have questions about this too. Because I remember thinking, after seeing the CGI in the first WW, that their budget was significantly less than other DCEU movies. And I thought that was because they didn’t believe WW1 would do well. For comparison, “Man of Steel” had a budget of 225-250$. “Wonder Woman”s budget was $120 million. Now that’s still a huge budget but you could tell there were places Patty Jenkins had to make do. (Particularly in the fight with Ares at the end which Jenkins said she didn’t even want in the film.) And this second one had a higher budget, $200 million. But I want to know why Wonder Woman still isn’t getting as much money as the first Superman (which was awful) let alone BvS or Justice League. And that made me wonder if they pulled some last minute type budget stuff (song rights?, some editing) when they realized it would go to streaming and not theaters? Is this a conspiracy theory? Idk. But I feel like the Wonder Woman movies could be better than they are if they were given more attention. The second one needing more help than the first, obviously.
  7. The music was a huge let down.
  8. https://www.instagram.com/tv/CJjd882JBIo/?igshid=vs2gucut3yl9 for NYE, Paul and Jason discussed WW84 with a baffled Natasha Leggero and Rob Hubbel. I have a lot to say about this film. I both loved it and hated it. Because everyone was great but it made no sense and kept taking me out of the movie. I kept wanting to tweak things myself or give notes. Seems like we may get a HDTGM about it? Also, I have a question. I haven’t seen the first WW in awhile but isn’t there a scene where she tells Steve she doesn’t have a dad? (That the movie is adhering to the original origin story for her where her mother made her out of clay?) But then in this movie she mentions her dad hiding Themiscyra and I was like, wait is it also in the new timeline where Zeus is her dad???? Help a nerd out.
  9. I relistened to this episode and I love all the screaming. It remind me of my family at holidays. Very appropriate Christmas pick.
  10. It is crazy how we all look ten years younger... Maybe they should do a WALL STREET 2 episode? I have never seen it.

    Jessica’s text to June and her tech problems made me so happy.i love you, JSC! and happy birthday, Jason. (Though Gish should’ve been the final cameo. That was biggest get.)

    Yes and what if you want a snickerdoodle but don’t know who it’s named after, can you still order it?

    Episode 255. A Very Nutty Christmas

    I have been learning a lot about the Nutcracker because I have started watching “On Pointe” a docu series on Disney+ about ballet students in NYC who are training for the NYC Ballet and/or the little ones that get to be part of the Nutcracker ballet in 2019. In the story the girl main character is named Marie. I was surprised when I read a bad translation of it, because I always thought her name was Clara (because of the ballet). But in above series, they dance the Balanchine (a choreographer who I never heard of but they talk a lot about in the show since he founded ABA) version of the Nutcracker and the girl is called Marie. Does anyone know which ballet version they were dancing in the clips? I assume the classical Russian but I know nothing about ballet.

    How are they paying for those mustaches??? It doesn’t add up. Eta: how did Jason phrase it in the country bears episode? Comedy mustaches?
