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!
NOTE: Please forgive the mistake in this episode… I think it makes it funnier, but I forgot to add in a critical sound-effect. It’s always something, am I right?
This is it! We did it!
So what do we do.. we throw a party with two friends from the Inside Joke Outside Voice Network.
We got Rich from Married Marks and Eric from Two-Legged Tie and we just hang out and argue a bit.
What would you expect from us, really?
From ice cream flavors to top tv shows. It really is a party with a bunch of people who like to talk to each other.
Am I making you chomp at the bit for more? Oh, you better be… because here we go!
They say you aren’t supposed to judge a book by its cover… well guess what… 5% of a comic book is it’s cover, so how about we judge a book by 5% of its content?
This week, the Something’s are going to the land of funnybooks where we discuss not the greatest covers that have ever come to comicdom, but our favorites. From Marvel to DC and everything in between – here are some of the comic covers that shaped our world. We’ve done our best to give you all of the information you need to follow along..
Ok, here we go!
We the Somethings of this Cast, in Order to form a more perfect podcast, establish hilarity, insure timely updates, provide for the sarcastic defence, promote the general whatever, and secure the I’m Running Out Here to ourselves and our Posterior (..heh, butt), do ordain and establish this episode for the pleasure of our audience.
The boys are getting a little political this week – and by political – they mean they’re talking about fake people who held the office of President.
Presidents from film, television, the future, and the past are all up to debate in this congress of Hatton & Podcast Rob.
We do our best to not discuss anything related to real politics.. because seriously.. you need an hour break from that.
So sit back, relax, and hum Hail To The Chief… here we go.
PS – Please take a look at your feed. This week you are getting a bonus of the first episode of STORIES TOO AMAZE! More on that post.
A New Challenger Has Joined The Battle!
SOMETHINGCAST vs. KUNGFU DRIVE-IN
ROUND 1 … FIGHT!
That’s right – we’re back and we’re bringing a sparring partner in Jeof from Kung-Fu Drive-In to talk about the best in movies about people hitting each other.
So movie your feetsa to Daddy Green’s Pizza and get ready to Enter The Cast!
The earth shakes.
The ground trembles.
Lava flows from the snow.
The world gets super super cold.
Then… … … the aliens come.
That’s right, when it comes to movies, every horrible thing has befallen man – and recorded in the archives, the boys are here talking about the greatest problems that movie earth has been faced with. From the sky. From the ground. From nature itself. We are talking about Disaster Movies.
Also, right from the beginning of the episode – we are giving you a sneak peek of the new SOMETHING PATREON!
There is no where to run – no where to hide. Ok, here we go!
First we introduce Podcast Rob & Hatton.
Then – you realize this whole podcast has been recorded in Spanish… BUT WAIT… then you recognize that this is a repeat… but is it? You go scouring through the archives, BUT THEY’RE ALL DEAD! Then the zombie invasion episode merges in and you find out that they are geniuses that recorded all of their shows in 1950… BUT HOW?!
That’s not for us to explain – but the best swerve movies always do. Movies that take what you thought was going on and flip the script. So join us as we talk about some of our favorite movies that make you go ‘Huh… wait… can we rewind? Does that mean…. but….. OH MY!’
Ok, here we go
PS – Lookin for vinyl – Ask Hatton.
PS^2 – Looking for a neat shirt – Ask Rob.
It’s time for the Somethings to get a little darker.. a little paler in pallette. The boys are going semi-monochromatic and discussing everyone’s favorite Hot Topic Discount Rack Star: Tim Burton.
Whether you are a ghost with the worst pain or a childhood favorite given a facelift and creepy reimagining via Johnny Depp – we probably hit on it.
Slap on some stripes and grab your Handbook of the Recently Deceased..
♫ What’s This! What’s This!
There’s babbling everywhere!
The Something’s just don’t care… ♫
Note: If you share this post, Mark Zuckerberg will bake you a turkey dinner.
Every day of every social media person’s life, you are hit with a thousand different pictures, memes, captions, and at least half of them are filled with bad information. Well, the Somethings are going to inform you of a little website called Snopes. Now, what this site does is… I know.. it’s crazy.. it debunks internet urban legends.
Every year they also do their best to tell you what the most popular b.s. was from the prior year. So we’re going down the list and talking a little bit of the internet urban legends of 2015. We go from Something to Serious to Seriously Creepy and back to Something.. this is a long strange journey. Buckle up.
Step one – take a camera
Step two – strange and horrible things happen to you
Step three – PROFIT!
The Something’s heading off with nothing but their wits and a camera, with an episode all about Found Footage/Shaky Cam movies. Whether it is a horrible creature tromping through the woods, or an urban legend coming to life in the woods, or a … why are all of these things in the woods?
Anyway – monsters, powers, mayhem galore on the just after Thanksgiving edition of the SomethingSomethingCast.
Note – We would like to thank Olivia Hennis of The Papercuts Podcast for her help with this episode. (And her show’s pretty rockin if you love young adult novels & films)
