Saturday, May 24th, 2014

True story: I had one of those two-foot-tall hard plastic Godzilla toys you see to the left. I used to sleep with it instead of a stuffed animal. All well and good, until his rocket fist would go off in the middle of the night and hit me in the eye. Godzilla apparently never heard the saying “love shouldn’t hurt.”

This informed every major relationship of the rest of my life.

Episode 58: Don’t Do Dope, Kids; Don’t Do Kids, Dope

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

Once again into the breach, dear friends. Welcome to a Very Special Episode of the Watch This Show Podcast. Show. Thing.

You better put on your big-boy pants before wading into the middle section of the show. Nate and I do our best to separate the artist from his art, and see what we can come up with. It’s time to talk about Woody, and the current rehashing of a decades-old, morally reprehensible scandal.

And, given that the news of his death via overdose (allegedly) was released roughly 15 minutes before we recorded, it’s also time to talk about Phillip Seymour Hoffman.

It’s about as deep a discussion as Nate and I ever have, so of course we completely fuck it up. But hey, you get what you pay for.

Episode 56: Mixology

Monday, October 21st, 2013

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.

Next up: my wife when I come stumbling in at 3am after last call, stinking of cheap brown liquor, with my tie around my head like Rambo’s bandanna, one shoe missing, and half a key of coke in my back pocket. GET OFF MY BACK BABY, I JUST NEED TO UNWIND, OKAY?

Wait, what were we talking about?

Episode 46: Rated X-Mas

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

We’re back like a bad case of the holiday blues, and just like the holiday blues we’re best enjoyed with a fifth of cheap scotch and a dogeared Polaroid of your ex-girlfriend. On today’s show, Nate and I get down to business and dump a pile of movie reviews right in your ear, like the little brain worms in Wrath of Khan, which I rewatched but didn’t review because come on. It’s really not as good as you remember it being. (more…)
