Well you are about to get it. Hatton and PCR love a good mystery, especially one that has a range of theories… from the scientific to the plausibly strange to the outright bonkers.
Enter Mysteries of the SomethingVerse – where the boys each take a side and figure out precisely what the hell has gone on there… at the end, we have those hanging out in the chatroom decide who made the most plausible case.
For our first round, we are going after the mystical miasma that takes down ships with impunity… The Bermuda Triangle. Is it just some bad luck? Is it a Time Vortex? You make the call!
The Somethings love television shows and movies, but did you know that Hatton and PCR are also …. literate?
So we’re heading up into that great space station in the sky and going through the Hitchhiker’s Guide to talk about our favorite science fiction books. From space battles to samurai and every cyborg in between.
If you are looking for a suggestion for some fun futuristic reads, then this is the perfect place to go.
For the first time ever, this episode was recorded LIVE on Twitch – and you can be here for next great live adventure November 5th@ 9pm – simply go to twitch.tv/somethingsomethingcast and make sure to follow us so you don’t miss out.
There are some great stories out there connected to movies… from ghosts on the set to mishaps to unintentional Easter Eggs – when the final product comes out, we get to see 2 hours of edited and poured over movies… but what goes into them is months of work… some craziness is bound to occur.
Rob and Hatton sat down and talked about some of their favorite unintentional movie mysteries so big that they became urban legends.
There is this movie – this movie that a lot of people saw and nobody remembers it until they are told about it by someone who has been awoken. I’m sure there are a lot of movies that fit this strange Mandela Effect sort of situation, but this one is special…. well, mostly because it is a hallmark movie in Hatton’s life and that of his sister.
So she recommended we review this – what happens when nostalgia meets a complete newbie to strange Canadian Fantasy Drama.
This is the strange and mysterious tale, featuring Celine Dion and Tigh Saul from BSG… it’s the only answer you can solve with hair…
Time again for us to skip the years of backstory, the forum posts, the rumor mills, and just go straight… to The End
On this week’s episode, given the spookiness of the month, we delve into a forgotten Tori Spelling vehicle that combines the politics of a 90s Fox show with a gutted version of an RPG classic.
Trenchcoats abound, and we’re pretty sure we’re your Sire now — if you didn’t know this show existed, we wouldn’t be surprised as it had less than a dozen episodes – it is the vampiest of vampies – it’s KINDRED: THE EMBRACED
The culture has reached the spooky season, bringing us another esteemed and fancy episode of Dramaticish Readings.
This month, a moose has concocted a plan to bring his family legacy to life, quite literally… while the henchman who has also been in the family for a few generations perhaps got stuff a bit wrong… also he is a meatball.
Find out what happens when lightning strikes on this Dramaticish Reading: Young Frankenstein Edition
To start us off on our month of haunting spectaculars is heading back to the well of horror. We’ve talked franchises, we’ve talked villains, we’ve talked horror battle royale – but we’ve never out and out just talked about our favorite horror movies.
So this week, Podcast Rob and Hatton are grabbing their masks, their machetes, their chainsaws, and their sexy sexy costumes and getting ready to spend an hour jawing about their favorite scary flicks.
Before Arrow. Before The Flash. Before Agents of SHIELD.
A group of unknowns gathered together to stop a monster who literally tore them apart. Well that was the first year of Heroes. A writer’s strike later and who knows how the show ends… based on the ratings, most of you probably don’t.
So join Hatton and PCR as they breakdown the end of the show that was supposed to be the beginning of an era. Was it? It’s time again for the Somethings to breakdown the end with The End – Heroes
If you’ve listened to our show (and… who hasn’t?) you know we’re fans of Bonnie Gordon and Xander Jeanneret, collectively known as “The Library Bards” (/jazzhands). Well, they’ve recently had the release of their second album “BomBARDed”, a follow up to their debut album “Bardcore”, and let me tell you.. this is an amazing and worthy follow up.
I grew up on the likes of “Wierd” Al and Doctor Demento, so for me, when it comes to parody songs, the bar is rather high, and I’m pleased to say “BomBARDed” delivers. One of the key things for me that makes a great parody song is the mixing of the parody lyrics into the original lyrics, and nothing is a better example of this than “Princess Bride”. The way Bonnie and Xander tell the story of the story while mixing the parody lyrics to those of “Mr. Brightside” feels not only flawless but natural.
Being a child of 80’s music, I also enjoyed the focus on music from that era. Using song such as AC/DC’s “TNT” and Styx’s “Come Sail Away” as the basis of “DnD” and “Come Fly Away” respectively really brought me back. “BomBARDed” also does an amazing job of touching a number of different (and overlapping) fandoms. Browncoat? Check (“Come Fly Away”). Trekkie? Done. (“Klingon”) Gamer? In to Comics? Want to clone dinosaurs? Check (“DnD”), check (“Comics Fan”) and check (“Welcome to Jurassic Park”). If you’re a sci-fi and/or pop culture fan, this album has something, and most likely multiple somethings, for you.
Not only do Bonnie and Xander show their musical ranges in styles and harmonies (I LOVE the way they growl out “DnD”, and their inter-song banter is amazingly spot on), but the music supplied by Bonecage and Sam Johnides does masterful job of staying amazingly true to the classics while adding enough of their own flourishes to make them fresh and original.
If you like great music, witty pop culture references and supporting independent artists, do yourself a favor and check out this album!
So I’m GLaD, I got burned Think of all the things we learned for the…
Fire up your Portal Gun, and settle in with your Companion Cube, it is time for Netflix’s post-something-er-another future with a robot that really will remind you of GLaDOS. She’s not, but … well, you’ll see.
So what happens when a robot raises a child. Doesn’t it take a village? Shouldn’t it at least take like.. two robots? We’re not against single-robot families, we were just surprised is all.
Settle in and find out on this episode of Something In Review, where we talk about I Am Mother.
