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)
You don’t need money…
We don’t take fame…
That’s a lie – we’ll take fame. We’ll take fame anywhere it asks us to. It’s gonna live forever. it’s gonna learn how to fly!
Sorry, already digressing. As I was saying – the power of love is a curious thing.. but more curious is the hours and hours we have spent watching time travel flicks. Movies about people moving about in time with usually disastrous results in the first act. There are tons of tropes, tons of gimmicks, tons of good and bad flicks that have used traveling through time as their crutch. Hatton & Rob are hopping in their Magic School Bus and going through their favorites.
(They also kill Hitler.)
We would like to play a game… and it’s BATTLE ROYAL: HORROR EDITION! We’ve discussed our favorite creature features and villains in the past, but given it is a time for scary, it is time to look with a chainsaw sharp eye… if that was a thing.. and look at some of the greatest villains of movie-dom and pit them against each other in a discussion about who would stand tall at the end. Whether you are sleeping on Elm St. or messing with a Puzzle Box, there is always a vacancy when it comes to Halloween.
(See what I did there? Yeah, I’m kind of impressed with myself, too.)
Ok ScarySomethings… here we ghoul!
During our anniversary episode we started talking about good sequels to movies, and what movies have had good #2’s and even #3’s.
Well, not only did the Somethings want to get back in on that action, we invited some other folks along to join in the fun. So we can call this the first ever IJOV Roundtable, featuring some guests from around the pod’verse.
We have Marcus from Deadpan Fury – and Toners from Nyrdcast!
So, sit back, enjoy a rambling, unending, roundtable talk that circles around the topic a few times and occasionally ACTUALLY touches on it.
Ok, here we go!
WE WANT OUR STSC!
The art of the music video isn’t forgotten. Hell, it might be just as popular as it ever was, but not where we remember it. The Somethings are taking you on a journey to learn their favorite music videos. These isn’t your top five music videos ever – this is the boys picking their favorites. So put away your a-Ha t-shirt… wait, you have an a-Ha t-shirt? How the hell did you get that?
Anyway, that’s not the point. The point is we are back – we are starting Year 3 with a few songs, some laughs, a new studio, and since you are reading this… you’re likely coming with us.
Ok, here we go!
We all love music.. at least the Somethings do – and for every band that goes on to sell multigazillion records, there are bands that have one song, sell some records – and fade into the oblivion. Now, you might go ‘But I know every song that Chumbawumba did, and they’re good dammit’ – you might be right, but sadly the rest of the world thinks they lived and died with Tubthumping. (fyi: Chumbawumba rules)
So this week – The Somethings are taking on – ONE. HIT. WONDERS. OOooooooooh!
Also – we would like to announce the winner of the SOMETHINGCONTEST – And that goes to the guy who entered every week and kicked some ass at making us laugh. That is Joshua Ungerleider who will be receiving SomethingSwag from us. Please drop us a line Josh, firstname.lastname@example.org
Please everybody congratulate and mock Josh mercilessly in the comments. More games are to come! Also, thank you to CS for this week’s graphic entry for the show!
How many times have you found yourself, maybe late at night, flipping through channels and you end up on a show you would never really admit that you watched? Now how many of those shows have you gone back for seconds on? Nobody in the SomethingStudio is going to judge that you know the price of everything down the meat aisle because you’ve watched Supermarket Sweep. We can’t mock you because you have invested a notable portion of your life to seeing every episode of Cleopatra 2525.
Why? Because we have lists just like that.
So join us won’t you and discover a wonderful world of what the Somethings do when nobody’s looking… WE MEAN TV, WEIRDOS!
