Episode 127: Band Documentaries, Modern Relationships, and a Review of the Live Podcast



The episode starts with Brad bumming us all out by talking about how he's been incredibly depressed lately. Cheer up, Brad. Eat a KitKat or something. Senior Discount updates follow, with the teaser of bigger announcements to follow soon. The below Web Coulier is talked about, and listener mail is answered.
Chuck brings some Movie Driplets to the table - 12 Monkeys as a TV show, a new movie from the director of Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and Amy Schumer getting a movie deal. The boys talk about the upcoming Green Day documentary Broadway Idiot, and then have a long discussion about the upcoming documentary about the band Leftover Crack.
Switching both genres and media, C&B chat about the news that Aziz Ansari will be writing a relationship book, and share some of their modern relationship woes. In addition, Chuck shares the sad story of the mobile game that was downloaded 50,000 times...and paid for a mere 144 times.
Chuck then offers a new segment, tastefully and creatively titled "Shut the Fuck Up," in which he discusses gripes people have and tells those people what he thinks of their opinions. (It involves them shutting the fuck up.)
This episode closes with a review of the live podcast (episode 126, coming soon to video), and a discussion about the work that went into it, the pride felt by our handsome hosts, and whether or not we're planning another one.

Episode 125: Negativity and Art



Chuck and Brad are joined in Episode 125 by local scalawag Brian Decoteaux from the Candace Brooks Band. The three gleefully chat about the first Web Coulier listed below, before Brad relates the tragic tale of a game purchase gone bad. They talk about other media experiences they've had that haven't gone so well, which leads neatly into the next segment: Chuck's Petty Printouts.
Chuck discusses a minor disagreement he had with a young fan (?) online. B, C, and B talk about the overreaction and about being a heel on stage. Chuck and Brad then discuss the upcoming live podcast and discuss some plans for it, as well as their promotional strategy. A very brief discussion of Character Brad closes the show.
