Episode 56: Mixology
Hey, remember when you were a kid, all those years ago? Remember little Sally Neidermeyer next door? The little freckled kid with braces and patchy rosacea? And remember when you went away to camp one summer and when you came back it seemed like little Sally had grown up? The rosacea was gone, the braces were gone, and her mom stopped cutting her hair at home and sent her to Blanche for a perm instead? Yeah?
Well that’s kind of what this show is. We’ve been gone for a while, and now we got makeup and boobs.
And what boobs they are! I bought some extra equipment, and now I’ve got the power to share sounds across the Internet. It’s a whole new world, folks. Nate and I can actually comment on music, play in clips from trailers, hell, we even work in Clarence Gilyard Jr.! If that’s not a draw, then shit, I don’t know what to do with you.
We start off the the showfest with a slobbery review of Sandy Bullock and George Clooney in what’s probably the best movie we’ve seen this year. DON’T SPOIL IT FOR YOURSELF! WAIT UNTIL YOU LISTEN TO THE SHOW TO FIND OUT WHICH MOVIE IT IS!! After that I spend a brief time talking about Opie’s new (ish?) joint, Rush. And a little while later, we review the anthology-ish Gosling vehicle, The Place Beyond the Pines. We round out the review-a-palooza with Nate’s payment for a bet he made more than a year ago and finally made good on. I’m not going to spoil it, but it’s worth listening for, folks. He experiences real pain here.
BUT THAT’S NOT ALL! We didn’t just review movies! I created what we like to call The Clip Game!™ (note that the exclamation point is part of the title). Nate tries to name movies from obscure clips. How could that not be amazing? We’ll show you!
Also, we play a clip from Marc Maron’s podcast, WTF, without his permission, and then talk about it! It’s great!
I’m probably even forgetting stuff. This is the best podcast ever, you guys. Best ever. Just burn down the Internet, we finished it. It’s all done. Go home.
