Not everybody likes everything.. I mean, Hatton goes out of his way to watch Asylum Films, and Podcast Rob enjoys Kiss. Sometimes, people can’t help it.
Well, if we’re going to be talking about Hot Takes on things, we needed two friends to come join in the party – so we got fellow ACPN.NET posse, Kevin Gootee and Kevin Israel, the hosts of Gutting The Sacred Cow to hang out and take down some big opinions.
Take a listen – agree – disagree – and then head over to their show and tell them we sent you.
We talk Star Wars, DC, Die Hard, and a whole lot more… Ready to fight?
Ok, here we go!
With the state of things, it didn’t feel right or respectful to post Rob and I talking about our usual pop culture nonsense. Instead, we are taking part in #PodcastBlackout by talking less and listening more.
Joining us this week is stand-up comedian and New Jersey native, Gordon Baker-Bone talking about the murder of George Lloyd, racism past present and future, and what we can do to help today and tomorrow. You can find Gordon on Instagram and Twitter and you most definitely should.
Sometimes, the Somethings need a little cultural – and given that normally they are as cultured as a strep throat test, they need to bring in the big guns.
Joining the boys this week is the long-time friend of the show, Meredith Placko – host, geek of all colors, and one half of the model paint powerhouse TurboDork. One of her nerddom dujours is historical fashion – so it felt like she was the prime candidate as we get down and discuss Period Films.
So get yourself some absinthe, a powdered wig, a ten pound bag of boning, and get ready to talk about the past!
Ok, here we go!
There’s a new show that has become must-see–TV for Hatton & PCR, and it is Lego Masters (on Fox & Hulu). Every week, teams of two are competing building crazy Lego builds and only one team is going to come out on top.
Well, our guest this week just so happens to be one of the competitors who has been killing it with her teammate Sam. Jessica Ragzy Ewud (ragzyart.com) joins us to talk about Lego Masters, the art world, and a whole lot more…
So get yourself a pair of headphones, a box of bricks, and listen while you build…
Ok, here we go!
♫ Creature of the niiiiight….
That’s right – it’s time for the Somethings to deep deep deep dive into the BBC’s newest horror piece, Dracula.
Is this the same powerhouse that was Jekyll? It’s got the same team, as well as longtime Dr. Who showrunner in Stevan Moffat… so why don’t we take a ship across the country and tell you all what Hatton & PCR think.
Ok, here we Count Blah!
Before we get to the episode, we just want to mention a charity that our guest this week mentions: GAMES FOR LOVE, a charity that provides not just games, but camps for programming and coding, to kids in hospitals around the world to ease their stresses through gaming. Please, give it a look and a share.
On to the matter at hand… Tabletop RPG is in a new heyday… all those years where the only problem with sitting and rolling dice with friends was that you couldn’t get people together – well now, you can watch roleplayers roleplay all over the internet!
If you do dig on streaming tabletop, you have probably heard of our guest, B. Dave Walters aka Victor Temple on LA By Night, a canonical Vampire: The Masquerade game streaming with Geek & Sundry (If you haven’t watched, you can start right here!) They have just started their new Chapter, which you can watch live on Friday nights – or B. Dave Storytelling his game on Queue Times.
Now though, on with the party…
For the last of our Year Six celebrations, we are going back…. but this time, to the end.
That’s right, the Somethings are back and they are flying on an Oceanic Flight with the last episode of the show that started a thousand arguments… Lost.
But we’re not going alone, oh no no no, if we’re going to face the Smoke Monster and the strange purgatory-not-purgatory spiritual-not-spiritual culmination of the ‘is it faith or is it science or is it Memorex’ island… we got long time show friends Rick & Sarah of AwesomeTalk TV. So after you’re done here, go see their newest episode over on YouTube!
But right now.. settle in.. it’s one more number in the Valenzetti Equation.. it’s … The End: Lost.
The Somethings are celebrating their 6th Year with some friends!
That’s right, to bring in our next 52 weeks of funny, we have brought in long time friends of the show PRL.
Matt, Joe, and Becky have been with us for a long time and we are thrilled to get their input on what’s going on in the Upside Down as we talk about this year’s edition of the Strangest of all Things: STRANGER THINGS.
So settle in for an extra long episode that most definitely stays completely on topic – and then go listen in as PRL get themselves ready for their relaunch.
Note – Friend of the show and regular guest Alexis Torres is currently going through some medical issues. You can read all of the details at her GoFundMe. In support of our friend, all profits from items purchased from our TeePublic store will be donated. Get well soon Alexis.
Do you enjoy comics? Do you enjoy the off-stage opinions of comics?
Well we have show friend Kevin Gootee (@KevinGootee) back talking about his Amazon Prime series, now in its 7th season, Comics Watching Comics. Featuring all new comics, all new critique, but even more funny. So Kevin hangs out with the Somethings and we talk not just comedy, but pop culture, movies, sports and more.
And when you’re done, go check out Season 7 on Amazon Prime
Also, please check out Livestream For The Cure on May 17th – 19th – great people with a great cause. We’ll be on Saturday, May 18th from 9:30pm-10pm, but we encourage you to check out all the great shows and segments streaming that weekend!
Let’s paint a mind picture.
You enjoy a thing.. perhaps a podcast where two schmucks from NJ babble incoherently twice a month (with more on the way). You go to the comment section and realize that the uber-fans are gatekeeping your ability to comment about what your favorite episode is. They’ve already made the decision that it’s ‘One Hit Wonders‘ and any attempt to argue that is brought about with name calling and assumptions about not only your taste, but your class as a human.
That’s toxic fandom, and maybe… if perhaps you’ve been on the internet and enjoyed anything ever… you’ve probably bumped into it.
So join the boys as we settle in with some of our favorite people, from Afterbuzz.Tv, Megan Salinas (@TheMenguin) and Katie Cullen (@Kiaxet)! From some of the blowback on Voltron Season 7, to being female nerds on the internet, they have seen their fair share of toxicity
So settle in, grab your pitchforks, and avoid Tumblr at all costs…. and when you’re done be sure to check out their Youtube channel Silver Screams
Ok, here we go…
