Episode 79: Comedy, Politics, Olivia Munn, and Ninja Turtles

Chuck and Brad start out by updating the listeners on the goings-on of Senior Discount and SkyPunch. Next up is a thorough discussion of the Web Couliers listed below.
Chuck describes the blu-ray extras for the film "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo," then the boys crack wise about Olivia Munn's very explicit text messages (that were hacked from her phone). Chuck mentions an upcoming DVD from punk band The Lawrence Arms and how much he's looking forward to it.
The boys then ponder why they discuss movies, tv, music, and games and don't really delve into politics. Equally important - the upcoming Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles movie provides a different origin story than the previous movies! Following that, Chuck talks about the reboot of the MTV show Punk'd.
Two personal stories close the show - one story recapping the recent trip to see a Kevin Smith Q&A in Boston, and one story about an awkward situation at work for Brad.

Episode 78: We Act Our Ages: Videogames and Teen Movies

Chuck and Brad start out by updating the listeners on the goings-on of Senior Discount and SkyPunch. After that, they get to an email from occasional guest Aaron Arcello about the new Will Ferrell movie. "Arch," as he's commonly known, also asks about comedic devices, which sends the boys on one of their many tangents.
Chuck brings a few tidbits of movie news, including Paranormal Activity 4 and a re-release of Jurassic Park into theaters. Also, some strange news involving WWE Films and the "Leprechaun" films. Have you seen "Miss March?" Chuck talks about that!
Chuck then talks about some demos he recently played on Xbox Live and advises you on which ones to check out. Speaking of video games, Chuck talks about some odd feelings regarding the Saints Row series.
SPOILER ALERT: Chuck reviews Project X at length. He spoils the whole thing, seriously. But his thoughts on the movie are unique and thought-out, which is more than can be said about most of what Brad brought to this episode.

Episode 77: Back to the Format: A Look at Movies, Music, and More

After three horribly depressing podcasts, the screwsome twosome is back with their typical format of reviewing far too much media. The show opens with some web couliers - a look at cool things on the web. Chuck then talks about the show that Senior Discount recently played with The Toasters. Brad follows that with a question about what attracts people to particular artists and particular art, which Chuck and Brad discuss at length.

Chuck goes on about Smokin' Aces, boldly declaring it his favorite action movie of all time (Brad's favorite action movie? "The Land Before Time.") (Not true, he's never seen it.) A juicy tidbit of movie news gives Chuck a movie boner, then the boys laugh about a different bit of news involving Nicolas Cage.

Brad then laments his lack of crushes, as every girl he's been sort of interested in lately has let him down. Chuck talks about two recent movies, and offers his opinion on the new season of The Walking Dead and a book called "Super I Am 8 Bit." Some TV talk occupies the boys next, as they briefly touch on Comic Book Men, Awake, and Touch.

On to movies, as we learn what the handsome fellas thought of their sneak peek of "21 Jump Street," before Chuck reviews some DVD's he's seen recently, including a very rare "avoid this movie" recommendation. The book Countdown to Lockdown by Mick Foley comes up, then a quick talk about Mario Kart 7. The show ends with a recap of the boyz' (with a z!) trip to RAW in Boston.

Episode 76: Our Terrible 2011 - Part 3 (Clarifications)

The unplanned part three of the Terrible 2011 Podcast brings the dismal year to a close. In this, Chuck and Brad seek to clarify some salient points about the two previous podcasts. If you had a question about an incident, point, happening, or circumstance, they probably addressed it - along with an odd aside about depression.

This well and truly does close the (audio)book on 2011. As always, if you have questions or what to hear the boyz chat about something, email

Next podcast - we resume our regularly scheduled yapfest.

Web Couliers:
There are no web couliers this week, as it would be a sad, sad, sad trip to whatever ridiculous website we advised you to visit.
