Episode 65: 30-Second Reviews, Polarizing Tweets, Against Me! Concerts, "Paul," "Red State," and "Rango"


After the Senior Discount/Sky Punch updates, the boys hit up some hot and wild Web Coulier action. They follow that up with Chuck's new weekly session, simply titled "Bret Easton Ellis' Polarizing Tweets." After that discussion, our heroes discuss various media they've experienced in the recent past, getting most of the reviews done in (about) thirty seconds (each).
Fun fact: Chuck and Brad saw Against Me! live two nights in a row and share their experiences with you. They also discuss AM!'s upcoming album, as well as possible beef between Against Me! and Rise Against. The podcast closes with discussions of currently-in-theaters movies "Paul" and "Rango," as well as Chuck's trip to see Kevin Smith's "Red State" screening/Q&A.
Oh, and lest we forget, they find time to talk about their feelings toward professional wrestling. (SPOILER ALERT: They are for it.)

Episode 64: The Evolution of Car Tag


Chuck and Brad are joined in the studio (and that word is used in its loosest sense) by John Cabral, Jordan Furtado, Lou Perella, and Christian Staton to discuss some tomfoolery they got up to while in high school. Specifically, they reminisce about the wonder and majesty that is CAR TAG. From its humble beginnings as Car Shenanigans to the wild and crazy heyday of Car Tag, it's all there. Cringe in fear as the boys relate close class, both with the police and mortal peril. Chuckle with delight as Brad sighs disapprovingly at any sort of danger. And ejaculate with excitement when they award "Most Valuable Driver" and "Most Valuable Runner" awards!

Episode 63: Senior Discount's Nightmare Before Christmas


Chuck and Brad meet with the rest of Senior Discount - Alan Sousa, Christian Staton, and Tom "The Frump" Wells - to tell the behind-the-scenes story of 2010's Christmas season. The band discusses the drama and problems that came with booking a live show for December 23rd. In addition, they reminisce fondly about all the nonsense that kept coming up when trying to get into the studio to record their Christmas medley. If you like tales of weird sound engineers and drummers failing to game hot backup singers, this is one podcast you can't miss!
It's a rare glimpse (an audio glimpse!) behind the veil of a band trying to do something special for their fans.

Web Couliers:
There were no Web Couliers for this podcast, as Tom's incessant coughing prevented discussion of cool things on the web.

Episode 62, Part 2: Disney Cartoons and TGIF shows


The boys are joined on the second part of this two-part episode by the (still-)dashing Patrick Dennis. Patrick brings his expertise in the Disney arena to the table as the gentlemen discuss Ducktales, Rescue Rangers, Goof Troop, and other shows. The discussion then segues into a review of ABC's Friday Night Programming Block in the 90's, better known as "TGIF." The podcast ends up Patrick detailing the huge crush on a Family Matters character - Urkel-bot!*

* - This statement is not true. Patrick's relationship with Urkel-bot was strictly platonic.
