Episode One Hundred and Six


Now with even more editing!

This week, we spoil everything! Well, everything that happened on True Blood. From Jason telling Tara that he was the on that shot Eggs, to Sookie's fairy heritage, we talk about it all. Chris attempts to talk about Eureka, but the storyline is so complicated, he has a hard time finding a starting point. The epilogue from the Lost box set is discussed and Frank talks about G.I. Joe.

Then, suspiciously, the next segment is missing.(You may find hints in random comments in regard to the missing content.)

Is it a good idea to get rid of recess and the "D" grade? We take a little time and explore those ideas. Then we talk about the new Massachusetts bullying law and is it a good idea to have such guidelines? Is bullying a part of learning how to interact in a social situation?

Music this week is from:

Chris Bricklemyer "Are You Serious Theme V.1"

The Reverend Horton Heat - "Bad Reputation"

Ugly Kid Joe - "Everything About you"

White Zombie - "More Human That Human (The Jeddak of the Tharks Super Mix)"

Akira Ifukube - "Title Credits - Destroy All Monster"

Episode One Hundred and Five

Episode One Hundred and Five: "105 years old, he hung in there, didn't he?"

In this week's episode, we spoil the hell out of the latest episode of True Blood. Everything that has happened with the King of Mississippi has led to the last five minutes of this episode. That isn't all that happened, Tara, Sam, Sookie, Eric, Bill, Jason, Nan and Arlene all have very important moments this week. Remember, there are MASSIVE spoilers in this episode, so beware. After that, we discuss The A-Team briefly and some other shows and movies that we managed to fit in during the week.

Russell Edgington - The Vampire King of Mississippi

From there, we move on to some current events. For instance, we discuss the ending of combat operations in Iraq. After 2708 days at war and 2666 days since the now ex-President George Bush declared "Mission Accomplished," we have moved all combat troops out of the country into Kuwait. This will leave 50,000 troops for support and training. We then move to the 15 dumbest things Sarah Palin has said. This is an exercise in restraint trust me. We briefly discuss the Islamic community center and how the area is not even close to "hallowed ground."

Remember this? It took a completely different group of people to do what that sign says.

We have two small musical interludes this week, the first is to enhance the story of how the Boba Fett that Erica and Mike sent was so delicately packed for shipping. The second musical break concerns a very famous sci-fi author and his crush. Then, we turn to feedback. Splitting the segment between e and voice mail, we have some interesting conversations about Clone Wars, the Nightsisters and Savage Oppress. Another e-mail asks us about whom we would consider a sell out in the entertainment business. What we have to say might surprise you.

Original concept art for a prequel era "Sith Witch." It has been adapted for use in the Clone Wars cartoon.

That about wraps up this week's show. We hope you enjoy what we have to offer. Don't forget to listen to the shows we played ads for this week!

Episode One Hundred and Four

Episode One Hundred and Four: "This can't be right. This man has 104% body fat."

This week, we start off with a musical interlude. Then we explain why we played that particular music and why all (ex)popsyndicate shows are now ex-popsyndicate shows. Something different than the old forums will be coming. Something big. Something good. We're excited to see what the future holds.

You know who you are.

Not much time has passed between our recording sessions, so we mostly talk about the newest episode of True Blood. There is a little talk of some other shows and movies, but not too much.

Next up, we discuss the person that confronted Sarah Palin with a sign reading "Worst Governor Ever" while she was filming her reality show for The Learning Channel. That's right, The Learning Channel. Then we go over a list of actual absentee excuse notes from a Memphis School. It's as funny as you would think. Chris talks a bit about the assumption that Catholics are superior in morality to atheists. Chris suggests that because Christians are good to avoid punishment, their moral purity may not be the most pure. We explore a few more topics and then take a break.

We finish the show with a super awesome voice mail from Erica and Mike and then Chris' convictions are called into question in regard to his stance on the proposed Ground Zero Community Center / Mosque. Hopefully, after a bit of explanation, Chris' stance is now clearly defined. Oddly (for our show) we delve into a bit of video game talk after we finish voice mail. I know, weird!

Music this week is from:

J. Hart and H. Helm - "Rockhouse"

Chris Bricklemyer - "Are You Serious? Theme V1"

Ministry - "N.W.O."

Muse - "Uprising"

Concrete Blonde - "Everybody Knows"

Episode One Hundred and Three

In this episode, we talk briefly about what After School Film School has done this week. I'll give you a hint; it has to do with zombies and ninjas.

Next up, we have a very special guest on the show! We are joined by Fozzie Bare from The Podcast Podcast to discuss the recent judicial ruling by a California judge. The ruling? The passing of Proposition 8 was unconstitutional. Not to say we told you so, but 2 years ago, we told you it was unconstitutional. See? We do know what we are talking about from time to time.

Next up, we re-cap the last two episodes of True Blood. Be warned, we spoil the latest episode, 6 ways to Sunday. We follow that up with some general talk about movies and T.V.

The last segment features some listener feedback and we (finally) announce the winner of the 100 episode quote trivia challenge! We are posed an interesting question about trends in Hollywood and movies and then we wrap it up. But, not before Chris complains about the heat.

Music this week is from:

Chris Bricklemyer - "Are You Serious? Theme V.1"

Heretix - "Heart Attack"

Maximum the Hormone - "What's Up, People?!"

Megadeth - "Foreclosure of a Dream"

Concrete Blonde - "Everybody Knows"
