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.
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!
As has become a tradition of the Somethingcast, we watch a lot of Netflix.
That’s not the tradition.. it’s a fact.. but it isn’t the tradition I’m speaking of. I’m talking about when a new Marvel show appears on our queue, we call on the one and only @Ungajje himself, Tim Stevens. If you aren’t aware of Tim’s work at Marvel.com, just go.. we’ll wait.
But for a show like Iron Fist where there is so much to unpack, we needed someone to balance out our chi when it came to the martial arts featured in the show, so we also called in @KungFuDriveIn, himself, Jeof Vita. If you aren’t aware of Jeof’s podcast, Kung-Fu Drive-In, just go.. we’ll wait.
The four of us have been chosen to Defend you from what is to come next… unless you already watched Iron Fist. Then you’re beyond our help.
So spoilers abound, but no matter what… ok, here we go!
Five creatures of great power, united for a common goal.
I, of course, am talking about the folks over at AfterbuzzTV.
The Somethings are joined by the whole of the giant robot forming cast of their review and report show for Voltron: Legendary Defender. We have Katie Cullen, Mark Donica, Megan Salinas, Somethingcast old friends Emma Fyffe, and via chatroom Alexis Torres.
It is a loud and raucous affair, just how we like it.
So everybody, get ready!
FORM FEET AND LEGS!
FORM ARMS AND BODY!
AND I’LL FORM…. THE… Uhm… ….the… somehing.. ..you know.. the .. top part thinky thingy.
Do not adjust the horizontal.
Do not adjust the vertical.
The following is an STST Special Report.
Ok, actually that is a bit heavy for what it really is. We figured since this is our one show off a year, we would still give you something to keep you remembering us, and we went and found something from over the summer that you didn’t hear. It isn’t long. And it’s all explained in the file. So thanks to Marcus over at Deadpan Fury, Wow Geezo and the Nyrdcast… you’ll understand why in a minute.
Happy Holidays from the Somethings.

♫ Oh you better watch out..
You better not cry…
You better listen to this episode
Or not.. whatever, I’m not your HR Rep ♫
Joining us from the IJOV – we have Marcus from Deadpan Fury, we have Eric from Two-Legged Tie, and we have Tony from Nyrdcast – and we decide to have ourselves a little Christmas Party. What goes on from there is… well.. I would love to say it is an episode about our favorite Christmas memories and shows and movies, but it isn’t… it’s almost better. It’s a bunch of idiots getting together and spreading some holiday buffoonery.
So enjoy everyone – and from Rob & Hatton, have a happy holidays.
(And in a rare instance – both of us did an opening graphic! Collect the whole set)
Not all movies are created equal. Some movies, from the get go, you watch them with full intent to laugh at the badness. Other movies you have high expectations for and they are everything you have ever wanted. They surpass your wildest dreams.
Then there those movies that, whether or not you expected it or not, the ending screws the pooch. Maybe it would have been a better movie with a different ending, or maybe the ending just tears down the journey. Whatever the case is… bad endings are very different than bad movies, although they do love to walk hand in hand.
To attack this topic, we have brought in fellow podcasters, Octopus Caveman from Getting F*d Up With Octopus Caveman (amongst others) and the Green Korean from Faces & Aces, Las Vegas!
Get ready – here
The Somethings are looking up to the heavens and hoping to catch a glimpse of something interstellar.
That’s right, we’re heading to the stars and it doesn’t matter if it’s little green men, crazy overly huge spaceships, the greys, or one naked hot blonde chick.. now that the aliens are here, we are going to discuss the hell out of them.
But what are two men versus the hordes of intergalactic perils that await us?
We brought back-up. Joining us are the boys from Alien Theorist Theorizing. If there is going to be any show out there that can help, it will be them.
What’s your favorite alien invasion – or simply your favorite alien – let us know… but do it after you have a close encounter with the Something kind.
Sometimes the remake is better than the original.
Sometimes the remake is better than the original.
Hell, we’re better than all of the podcasts we regularly steal from. (This is not true (probably)).
But when it comes to music, there are great musicians and there are great songs. Sometimes great musicians are known for songs that they didn’t write, but for music that they fundamentally made their own. Whether that is through style, vocal quality, tone, or a thousand other factors – but seriously, who doesn’t love a well put together cover song.
So we got a couple of folks who know a little SomethingSomething about music and asked them to join us this week.
First is a guy that you have heard a thousand times, yet never got a chance to listen to – the man who wrote the Something Theme – CS Swampfox!
Second is two of our friends from NJ and #PodernFamily – it’s Rick & Sara from AwesomeTalk.TV – aka Ice & The Face (and Life With Lyme)!
**And if you dig this week’s end song – be sure to click on The World Is Not Enough**
So whether it’s a new wave hit, a heavy metal remake, or a dirge made dirgier… ok, here we go!
Three Years Ago….
A former podcaster, writer, and internet weirdo Rev. James was lingering in a local watering hole when he heard a voice he hadn’t heard in years. The bombastic laughter of one Mr. Podcast Rob.
Considering the idea of getting back into the podcast game, over the course of the next few times hanging out, the idea became clear.
After a meeting of the minds (or whatever it is they have in their skulls) – The SomethingCast was born.
Well join us once again as we celebrate our leather anniversary. (Yeah, it’s leather.. look it up.. don’t make anything of it) We’re back at the Something’s home away from home, Wildpig Comics in Kenilworth, NJ with store owner Chris and manager Bill talking the last year of comickiness in front of a live audience.
Also a quick shoutout to friend and regular Tim ‘Ungaije’ Stevens who wasn’t able to make it – but we’ll make sure to get him back on the line soon to be smarter than us.
And to all of you who have supported us over the years – be you friend, family, fan, podcast – thank you. We couldn’t do it without you.
Well – ok – here we go!
