What’s going on everyone.
This week, the Somethings had the pleasure to hang out with Kevin Gootee, a stand-up who is doing something pretty original on Amazon Prime.
Every episode features one or two stand-ups doing a set while Kevin and his panel talk about what they did right and what they did wrong. From constructive criticism to out and out wrecking, for a fan of comedy, it is a unique take on the artform.
If you haven’t seen it, the new season is going to be appearing any minute now… but until then, catch up with Seasons 1 – 4 and then go follow Kevin Gootee (@KevinGootee) or go checkout the site at Comics Watching Comics.
Last but not least – if you are a stand-up comic who wants to give it a shot.. first, go watch the show. Trust us, know what you are walking into. Then, submit your information to firstname.lastname@example.org – you must have been a working comic for the last three years, but if you think you got it… you go get it!
And again, thanks Kevin for hanging.
Ok, here we go!
Happy New Year!
First, lets get the important stuff out of the way.
We’re starting the year with a contest! This is what you gotta go do if you haven’t – go subscribe to our show via iTunes. Go leave a review. Send a screenshot to us via twitter (@STSTCast) – be entered for a chance at a Visa gift card.
Then, while you do that, you can do your best to avoid falling poodles and soda machines.. because we’re hitting the power of the internet and talking about this past years Darwin Award Winners. If you’ve never heard of the Darwin Awards, it is an unofficial award given to those that have taken themselves out of the gene pool. People who generally hurt themselves in hysterically self-inflected and dumb ways voted on by the internet.
The last year has some doozies.. and we’re here to tell you about them.
So lets start the year right… by laughing at others misery.
Ok, here we go!
It is a yearly Something Tradition – the IJOV.NET Somethingcast Christmas Party!
So get yourself some rum-laden nog, light the fire, and do what everyone does during the beginning of the season of giving. Put on headphones and listen to your friends prattle on about holidays and the year that has passed while you get black-out loaded.
Joining on our festive occasion is Toner from the Nyrdcast. We have Eric from Two-Legged-Tie (currently on hiatus). Lastly, we have the newest IJOV posse, Rich & Shannon from Married Marks.
And before we get to the episode, two things for you.. good news and bad news.
The bad news is that this is our last episode for the year. As always, we take our break for Christmas, so it is a perfect time to go back and go grab the episode you missed and use it to fill the Something-Shaped hole in your heart.
The good news is that we are starting our Patreon this month, so no better time to get in, hear the beginnings of our new radio drama and our new micro-show which is going to be a little something about history.
But for now… thank you for being here and we can’t wait to get back in the studio.
Does that logo alone send a chill down your spine as you hear Robert Stack telling you about all the horrible crap that is going on in your neighborhood?
Well, get ready for a little preview of what’s to come for the Somethings future. Take a listen to understand what I mean about that. (hint: It relates to our Patreon) – But we’re going into the well of history and talking about some of the strangest, weirdest, and most interesting things that we still haven’t got a clue about. By we, I mean Rob & I.. you might know.. and we expect you will probably tell us where we were wrong.
Anyway, until then – settle in and get ready for a little Something Mysterious.
And as a quick note from us to you – may your Thanksgiving be festive whether it’s a turkey dinner with all the fixings or just two loudmouths in your ear. We are ever thankful for you.
Ok here we go!
It’s time to go back to the umop apisdn (that doesn’t work if you use a weird font) ..anyway, it’s time to head on back and see what’s going on in the eeriest of Indiana’s – that’s right, Netflix’s bingers dream has returned for nine more episodes of small town life with a Lovecrafty spin.
So find out what the boys thought about the return of all of the kids we know with a few folks we were equal parts thrilled and horrified to see.
So get your eggos and settle in – it’s time to get our paddles.
Ok, here we demigo!
The rules you need to know:
– You have to invite them in
– You’ll never see them in front of a mirror
– If you stake them, they will die
– Go sparingly on the garlic
I am course am talking about the Somethings, who are back with an episode about the monster movie’verses grand pappy of em all, the Vampire!
We are in the horrortastic best month of the year when it comes to popping on your favorite fright fest and that’s exactly what we decided to do with the batty, glittery, dark lords of the macbre. So settle in for this spooktacular movie party with AfterBuzzTV and Silver Scream’s own Megan Salinas (@themenguin) to bring her horror loving pedigree to add in to our own.
Know what I hate about these podcasts… too many damn vampires.
Ok, here we ghoul!
You can’t have a summer blockbuster without your bae… am I right?
I, obviously am talking about the Master of all things Kaboom – Michael Bay.
We can joke, but he’s had his share of fun flicks – and its time for the boys to break them down and find out which ones set them on fire and which ones fizzled out before they ever got ignited.
Also – before we get to the episode – we would like to say a thank you to the amazing legacy that Wild Pig Comics is leaving in the New Jersey comic and hobby scene. Chris and Bill have been long-time friends of the show, and we’re sorry to see them go. If you happen to be in NJ before the end of the month, be sure to stop by and wish Chris luck on his next adventure.
Ready for some funsplosions?
Ok, here we go!
Take the Devil of Hell’s Kitchen. A loud-mouthed P.I. with superpowers. A bullet-proof man who swears to watch out for Harlem. And.. ..well.. Danny Rand.
Push them together and what do you get – you get us bringing back the Somethingcast’s favorite guest, Mr. Ungajje himself, Tim Stevens!
As always, when the binge-worthy Marvel World rears its color-coded head, we breakdown what’s going on – what we like – what we hate – and Tim brings up the average intelligence by knowing a lot more about the source material than either of us.
So settle in and find out if this show is worth Defending. Afterwards, head over to TimStevensIsUngajje to find out what more is going on with our ducet-toned bestie.
After 3 big episodes in a row, the boys are hanging back for a little and catching their breath.
What that means is you get to dive into one from the secret archives of the Somethings, where you get all new material, we did the same amount of work, but we did it before now! It’s amazing. It’s like magic.
I’ll tell you that the above sentence has more magic in it than this movie.
There are a lot of classic Star Wars rips, but Starchaser might be the most forgotten.. not because it is obscure or bad or an obvious cash-in… it’s because it is all three.
We promise, you don’t need to see the movie to enjoy this episode. Hell, you’ll likely enjoy the movie more if you don’t watch it.
Ok, here we go!
So after putting the Patreon on pause.
After our Anniversary.
After our 100th Episode.
How could we put icing on that cake?
Oh, we got ourselves a badass guest to hangout with for a little while. Who, you may ask? Why Ralph Garman, co-host of the Hollywood Babble-On with Kevin Smith, actor in a lot of stuff you’ve seen, as well as the host of one of our personal favorite shows, The Joe Schmo Show!
So settle in and enjoy the conversation, and do yourself a favor and follow @RalphGarman on Twitter and Instagram to continue following his adventures and all of the big life changes in store for him now that we’ve hijacked his brain. And be sure to look out for him on Seth MacFarlane’s new sci-fi show, The Orville.
Ok, here we go!
