First post! (I know, what a brag.) In honor of JumpTheShark (RIP), and its patron saint, Ted McGinley, I got to wondering who might best be the avatar of the HDTGM anthology of movies. Initially of course, you have the usual suspects: Stallone, Cage, JLo, Pacino, Travolta, Schwarzenegger... Names synonymous with bad movies and the podcast in particular. Going this route, I'd have to go with either Stallone or Cage, not only because of their quantity of work, but also their quality of it. Stallone is unbelievably bad in unbelievably bad movies. Cage at least is spirited in a not quite so disastrous way while appearing in unbelievably bad movies. But I was also thinking of going another possible route for it; what if the Patron Saint we all eventually chose was someone who was amazingly good in a terrible movie? Essentially three episodes in a row as of late have featured the panel praising the transcendent performance of a star in a terrible film: the great Gene Kelly in Xanadu, the fantastic Dolly Parton in Rhinestone, and the wonderful Emma Thompson in Junior. But who deserves top spot? I guess that depends on whether you think Kelly agelessly gracing through an aimless Xanadu, Dolly carrying an overwrought Stallone vehicle on her back, or Thompson carrying the comedic weight of an uneven film where she shouldn't be responsible for that at all is the hardest task. Or do you guys think there is a worthier Saint deserving of canonization? I'm excited for the debate.
YEEZUS is the ALBUM of THE YEAR. I am open to debating that I am 100 correct. Yesterday during the youtube I4h, Besser had the gall to call Yeezus mediocre. Of all people, Besser should like the album the most because I4H is the Yeezus of podcasts making Besser the Kanye West of podcasts. 1.) Besser complained about the AV club not appreciating I4h. Kanye stated that people(media) are trying to minimize the influence of Yeezus the album and tour . 2.) Besser like Kanye want more than the success they've already achieved. Besser stating that corporations (EARWOLF) doesn't advertise his show and people aren't buying his standup albums. Kanye that corporations don't give him access to create bigger and better ideas, and pigeon hole him to an urban market. 3.) Besser like Kanye just had a new born thus giving them extra motivation and drive to be vocal about their dissatisfaction about their current place in their perspective mediums. Both married to actresses. 4. Besser like Kanye is respected by his peers but disrespected by the "man" by lack of opportunities to spread their genius on bigger and bigger platforms. 5. I4h like Yeezus is a first of its kind in their genres. Just like Yeezus it takes a few listens of I4h to appreciate how fucking awesome it is. The cyborgs episode is what got me hooked. No album had a bigger impact with its presentation of experimental new sound and packaging even with the lack of marketing and radio singles. Its impact showed in that someone as "nerdy" as paul rust listens to it and someone as old and presumably out of the loop as Conroy and Billy recognize the album and follow news about it. No one had on the I4h panel had bought anything new but all of them knew about the new kanye west album, Yeezus.
