Episode 284: YouTube Go, Chuck Rides a Horse, and Relationship Dynamics


After a quick chat about the below Web Coulier, we dive into some very shallow movie driplets (it's a very unsafe dive). We talk about a delay for the next Friday the 13th movie, Stan Lee's next cameos, and MacGruber 2. After that, we discuss the new YouTube Go app (piloted in India) and what that means for us. Check tells the saga of swapping Less Than Jake tickets (for other Less Than Jake tickets). He then tells me about his recent horseback riding experience. Did he get kicked in the face by a horse? You'll have to listen to find out! (But no. He's fine.) Finally, we discuss the dynamic of a "Look At Me" person with an "I See You" person. How do we evaluate ourselves on that scale?

Episode 283: Complicated Media Streaming, Transparency, and Brad's Epiphany


We start with some plugs for social media (and to rate the podcast on iTunes), and then go into a talk about a driplet of news concerning CW's media streaming policy. This becomes a downpour of news as we brainstorm ideas on how to fix streaming media in general. A lot of water terms in there. Chuck shares a GMail trick with me, then reviews a local Mexican restaurant. We talk about our recent stand-up show and what we learned. Chuck talks about Senior Discount's performance at the Pop Rocks Music Festival and laments his DVD-trade-in options in the area.
Chuck then brings up the idea of transparency; are we open enough on the podcast? How can we be more transparent in our personal and podcastal lives? That segues beautifully into me sharing something I felt/experienced over the summer and how I got there. Totally transparent!

Episode 282: Super Mario Run, Rob Lowe Roast, and CM Punk's UFC Debut


The 282nd installment begins with some show updates, then goes to the movie driplets. Jurassic World is going to be a trilogy - guess how excited Chuck is for that? We learn who the villain will be for the third Wolverine movie, and talk about the upcoming Stan Lee biopic. Nintendo recently announced an endless runner game coming to iOS systems - we have feelings about this. Chuck laments the news that the upgraded PS4 will not have a 4K blu-ray drive. I remain ambivalent.
We talk about the Comedy Central Roast of Rob Lowe and try to figure out why we didn't like it as much as previous roasts. Chuck talks about his struggle to get Green Day tickets, but gets excited about the chance to see Reel Big Fish play one of their albums live.
We close the show by talking extensively about CM Punk's venture into mixed martial arts. Unsurprisingly, we are firmly in his corner, and passionately defend his stance to an uncaring MMA community.

Episode 281: Yoga Hosers, Don't Think Twice, and Netflix Originals


Back to Classic Chuck and Vintage Brad this week, as it's just the two of us. We talk about some superhero movie news involving the solo Batman movie, two tidbits from the Spider-Man movie, and two tiddier bits from the Netflix GLOW show (not superheroes, sorry). I share the story of a foolish mistake I recently made, Chuck expresses his delight about the upcoming Green Day tour. We talk about a 10-year old remake of a 20-year old game coming to the Wii U (a dying system) and couldn't be happier.
Chuck recaps his trip to see Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally live, we talk about the Kevin Smith movie Yoga Hosers, then Chuck relates the tale of going to see Don't Think Twice, the new film from Mike Birbiglia.
Chuck and I close by talking about Stranger Things and other original Netflix properties and how excited we are that we are finally catching up to the rest of the Western world in our appreciation thereof.
