This week, we were going to do a shorter show, because we didn't think that there was that much to talk about. Boy, were we wrong. We start by talking about Christmas and gift giving. From there, we move into what we've recently seen. Modern Family, Despicable Me, and a bunch of other things are discussed.
Next, we talk about some passages from "The Atheist Bible." The title is a misnomer, as it contains the New Testament with a copious amount of bull si*t from Ray "Way of the Master" Comfort. We specifically address his chapter, "The Ten Most Common Mistakes Atheists Make." From there, we move on to a whole bunch of quick hit news stories. Muslims want to execute a Christina woman, Bo Burmham sings a wonderfully dense and elaborate song, Fox cites The Onion as a credible source and many other crazy stories.
The most important segment of the show is reserved for some audio from a great man that we lost this week. Irvin Kershner, director of "The Empire Strikes Back," died at the age of 87. He once said, "I think it went beyond 'Star Wars'. You had some humor, you got to know the characters a little better. I saw it as the second movement in an opera. That's why I wanted some of the things slower. And it ends in a way that you can't wait to see or to hear the vivace, the allegretto. I didn't have a climax at the end. I had an emotional climax."
Music this week is from:
Chris Bricklemyer - "Are You Serious Theme V.1"
Daft Punk - "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger"
The Art of War - "I'll Take You There"
Letters to Cleo - "Rim Shak"
Concrete Blonde - "Everybody Knows"
