Episode 232: Halloween 2015 - Costumes, Celebration, and The Grinchverse


This installment is our annual Halloween episode! We are joined (as with previous Halloween episodes) by local ne'er-do-wells Brian Decoteaux and Nic Hallenbeck. The guys plug some upcoming projects, then mention the below Web Couliers. Chuck recaps his (and Brad's) Halloween experiences from this year, and Brad tells a brief tale of mistaken identity at a party he recently attended. Chuck tells the guys about the most recent additions to his Halloween playlist and explains the rationale behind it.
The guys continue to have fun exploring ridiculous costume ideas, with the idea that they could all be rejected ideas. Chuck pulls up an article about this year's Simpsons Halloween episode, then mentions Teefury's holiday collection.
Things take a turn for poignancy when Chuck poses the question - what should an adult's relationship with Halloween be? And the final topic of the evening is the continuation of LAST year's extended Grinch-verse conversation. Ridiculous.

Episode 231: Crossover Storytelling, Rock Band 4 Problems, and Further Festive Adventures


The 231st installment of this beloved podcast kicks off with Chuck and Brad updates. The guys talk about an email about a possible (?) parody video of a conspiracy or some such nonsense. Following that, they talk about the below Web Couliers, then Chuck dives into some Movie Driplets (safely). What's up with multiple versions of Quentin Tarantino's Hateful Eight? What are the plans for Die Hard 6 (and how do C&B feel about the films in the franchise)? And what's this I hear about two move Marvel properties possibly being made into TV shows?
The first "main topic" of the night is the distressing news about the release of Rock Band 4 for Xbox One - what's the deal, Harmonix? After that, the guys talk about a listener Vox regarding the crossovers between franchises and storylines. Is this a good thing? Is it a sign of the death of creativity?
After that thorough discussion, the manchildren (menchildren?) talk about the festive things they've done in the past week - Haunted History Tours, Teen Wolf, Pumpkin Carving, Salem, Decorating, The Scituate Art Fair, and It Follows! Wow! What a festive week!

ALSO: The guys receive some amazingly fun news while recording!!!!!!

Episode 230: Movie Endings, College Memories, and Festive Activities


Episode 230 begins with some standard Chuck-and-Brad updates, then the guys delve into the news about Marvel looking at making a lot more of their one-shot film projects. The dudes are appropriately stoked. From there, Chuck tells Brad about Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes (2001) and the confusion about the ending of the movie, as well as how the studio explained the ending to viewers who were left scratching their heads. Like apes. Chuck regales us all with tales of his anniversary night with Gina, then talks about some Open Mic nights he's been to recently. This somehow segues to Brad talking about guilt he feels from a college project that was literally over fifteen years ago. C&B really get into sharing some stories about their times in college. Chuck talks about his trip to NYC to see "Aladdin" on Broadway, then they talk about the "Turtle Hunt" - a daylong trip to track down and obtain some important Halloween decorations. The guys also got to see Monday Night Raw - what moment gave Brad goosebumps?
