Gary Oldman caught ‘dracking’Once again we bring you one those shows where we’re running a little behind schedule. In a typical episode we plow through the hellos, the calendar, any E-Mails, new DVD releases and the previous week’s poll results within the first half-hour. I glance at the countdown timer and if it says anything less than 00:30:00:00, I know we’re in pretty good shape. This week, we’re just getting to Tuesday’s DVDs at about 35-minutes in. Okay, not too bad, I can play catch up somewhere. We get to the first story with just about 15-minutes left in the show. Oh damn, that’s not good. There are a couple of sidetracks that killed a lot of the time. It’s the nature of the beast though. And I don’t mind. That extra filler is entertaining. You won’t wanna miss it. We recap a few little events that happened while we were off for a week. Including the iPhone 5 announcement, Wii U’s pricing and we update you on that old lady who botched the Jesus Christ fresco restoration over in Spain. You won’t believe what she’s doing now!
And Dennis explains the intricacies of our friend John, who filled in for him and Jabari on our last show thanks to a listener E-Mail questioning John’s voice. And we’ve also got a voice message from someone else regarding that strip club tax issue in Albany, New York followed by what he thinks the Dirty Igloo should be. See the previous episode for reference.
Since we were running a little short on time this week, we scrubbed the new Fantasy Football Update segment. It’ll be back again next week though since you’re all DYING to know how Jabari and Dennis are doing with their picks so far.
Waterman Entertainment is a Hollywood company bent on destroying our childhood television memories. They’re shaping up to be quite the factory of cookie-cutter remake, reboot and re-imagined adaptations of any program or cartoon series that has ever been previously produced. And they’ve targeted THE BRAVE LITTLE TOASTER as their next blunt force trauma to the movie screen. It’s confirmed that it’ll be a live-action feature with a computer generated toaster. And since lamps, electric blankets and something called a radio are no longer stylish or used, Waterman has decided to update the household objects that befriend the toaster with more current day gadgets. We surmise what they might be. One of them may have already been officially decided though. Tune-in to find out what!
And Waterman’s rampage continues as they’ve acquired the rights to MR. ED, a 60s sitcom about a talking horse with plans to turn it into a movie as well. This wreaks of something in the vein of that MARMADUKE catastrophe. Or even, Waterman’s own take on ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS. Mr. Ed’s voice on the old show was over the top with a whinnied inflection that said “I’m a talking horse” without actually saying it. You can bet this new Mr. Ed will not get the voice actor treatment. Instead any given A-list actor will be called in to phone in the gig.
After skipping Michael Bay news in the interest of time (yeah, THAT’S the reason we skipped it), we move onto a study that was found in some government archive which looked at the effects of nuclear radiation on beverages in glass containers. Most notably, beer and soda. You may be surprised at the results to the study conducted back in the 60s.
And the best story of the night, aside from those relating to strip clubs and Jabari’s birthday, has to go to the drunken English woman who literally became a pirate by stealing a 45-foot ferry, then proclaimed such as she and her intoxicated pal barreled down the River Dart running over small boats before crashing into a really expensive one. She claimed to be Jack Sparrow, but I doubt that’s what was put on her arrest record.
And on a side note, this week’s show marks just one month until our 5th anniversary! We’ve got some exciting changes coming. Nothing too major… there’s a new logo on the way, the site is also getting a face lift and I’ve been toiling away on my audio editing program putting together some new intros (that’s what we call the opening music at the start of a show). We’ll eventually have around twenty or so that we’ll rotate. Keep things fresh. Drack on!
