Rhett and Jason finally put aside their personal live to create another podcast episode for you. We hope that you feel suitably blessed. We slave away over these hot microphones pouring our blood sweat and tears into this endeavor all for your enjoyment. If you don’t feel blessed then you can feel free to take Rhett’s advice. If you don’t know what his advice is you haven’t been listening to the podcast.
Seeing as this is throwback episode we hurry through the listener email (sorry Chance, Jason gives you a more thorough snarkectomy than usual). We rehash a few things from last week as per usual. Chance more than validates our opinions. Basically, since we have internet validation, if you don’t agree with us you are wrong. So we talk about earning money from other peoples’ work, immigration (though only briefly, so don’t get excited), video game reporting both audio and video, a couple of podcasts you might be interested in (Dark Angels and Pretty Freaks and Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History), don’t play Divinity II Ego Draconus, guy plays against dad’s ghost on Rally Sport Challenge, and the fact that we can’t stand Miley Cyrus or Lady Gaga (big surprise).
Rhett takes over and we talk about Comic-Con. We will go into greater detail later this week, but Comic-Con may be in trouble and may have to rethink their model, maybe get back to their roots. Originally, Comic-Con was all about comics. Now there is more non-comic related items on the agenda than comic related. This year one of the big reveals was the new trailer for Mad Max and while it is an exciting bit of news it is not related to Comic-Con.
Jason takes a look at the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie that is coming out next month. This was brought on by his wife who was surprise and disturbed by the new look given to the turtles. The news that a new turtles movie was in the works was taken, at least initially, as good news by both podcasters. However, the news that Michael Bay would direct and early news that the turtles might be aliens has us sincerely doubting that this movie will be good.
We also talk about Game of Thrones and how George R R Martin in a terrible writer and that the show itself if terrible. Hate us if you like, we would be glad of the email. Here is the Glove and Boots video that was mentioned.
On the docket for tonight’s battle royale we deviate from the past pitting of hated celebrities and tonight we have Cinderella versus Snow White. Who would win. They are both toughened by the wicked stepmothers and manual labor. And just to remind you how distracted we can get, we come up with a better movie concept than Snow White and the Huntsman during this discussion.
