Episode 42: Life, The Universe, And Everything
So, I want to warn you. This is the second-longest show of our entire run. It wasn’t planned. Lordy, it was not planned. I meant to edit it. I meant to cut it. Trim it. Shave it, wax it. Make it all bright and pink and shiny, just for you, my love, just for you. Okay, I’m not even sure what I’m talking about.
One thing I am sure we talk about, though, is 21 Jump Street, the latest from noted thespian and possible full mongoloid Channing Tatum. Also featured: all the fat liposuctioned out of Jonah Hill.
After that, Nate brings up an Internet pissing match that resulted in him calling Cameron Crowe in tears, just saying over and over “I love you so much, I love you so much.” The restraining order is in the mail.
I also saw Premium Rush, which manages to succeed in spite of the worst movie title since Desperate Measures. I mean, succeed in entertaining me, not in, like, succeeding. Because I’m pretty sure it made less money than I did when I found a filthy nickel on the street outside the theater.
After that, we spend
way too much some time talking about the Grantland’s Sequaltology, which I realized to be completely fatuous once I noticed that Jackass #2 made their arbitrary cut but Die Hard With A Vengeance, The French Connection 2, and The Bourne Supremacy didn’t. Seriously, fuck you Grantland.
We close out with an unnecessary and bloated discussion of the legacy and career of noted self-murderer Tony Scott.
So do some deep knee bends, some trunk twists, and stand on one of those leather-strap gut-vibrator things, because you’re about to military press fifty pounds of podcast with your ears. Feel the buuuuuurn.
