Episode 48: Silly Marvel Casting, Raffle-Winning, Avatar DVDs, and Jamie Oliver vs West Virginia

After the Senior Discount/Sky Punch and Chuck/Brad updates, third-time guest Aaron Arcello is welcomed to the show. The boys discuss the very recent Senior Discount show at Lupo's, the special filming they did, and Chuck's unprecedented nervousness beforehand.
Some emails are answered, prompting a discussion of disappointing April Fool's day pranks, and a convenient segue into this week's Web Couliers (Chuck and Brad's weekly web-findings): a trailer for the star-studded film "The Expendables", an article about the best April Fool's Day pranks, a trailer for the documentary "Best Worst Movie", an article about the world's greatest thief, a humorous "Back To The Future"-inspired fake letter from Doc Brown to Marty McFly, and an article written about an exchange between the writer of the film "Monster House" and a child frightened of the film.
The three pilgrims discuss a recent wrestling death, and the very odd decision to cast Chris Evans as Captain America, when he already plays the Human Torch (both owned by Marvel). The upcoming Zune HD (64 GB) is discussed, and then guest Arcello brags for a while about his innate ability to "win raffles". The boys discuss Fat Mike (of NOFX fame) and his disturbing "set" as SXSW, and "Avatar"'s extremely ironic three-release-plan in conjunction with their Earth Day DVD release. They converse about Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution, and the film "Babies", and close the show with some more debate about the iPad.
