[FIXED] Movies That Replaced Actors (w/ Cthulu’s Prodigy)
It has to be hard to make a sequel to a movie. Aside from trying to recapture the magic of the first one, you have to get this legion of performers to come back and find a perfect time where they aren’t working on other things… or, you know, you could just ditch em.
Actors are replaced in movies for a myriad of reasons, some tragic, some hysterical – so settle in as we discuss some of our favorite and least favorite replacements in film. We’re not going alone though – we are thrilled to have Cthulu’s Prodigy from Blacker Than Black Times Infinity to talk the movie talk with us. Make sure to give them a listen and tell em the Somethings sent ya.
Ok, here we .. ok, well not ‘we’ since we had to replace both hosts .. go!
2022 Holiday Party
It’s a yearly tradition – the Somethings gather some of our friends and we have ourselves a big ol’ hangout. No lists. No reviews. Just talking holidays, nostalgia, and the subtle descension of our minds into an internet-addicted dystopia.
The best of the holidays, am I right?
So please, settle in as Rob & Hatton, Awesome Talk’s Rick & Sarah, and Matt & Becky of PreRecLive all make with the merry .. oh, and there may be a special guest who was unable to join us, but still found a way to interject in his own Marcus’y way.
From all of us to all of you – Thank you for being with us and we hope you have a safe and happy holiday.
Ok here we go ho ho!
[THE WHEEL] Elevator Pitch: Disaster Movie (w/ Crystal Storm)
The Wheel is a neverending mistress, always spinning, always providing. It is the alpha, the omega, and what decides our fate. We are but pawns in its sometimes brilliant, sometimes cruel decisions.
Today, the Wheel spins yet again, and the Somethings are confronted with their biggest disaster yet – plotting their own elevator pitch for a Disaster Film!
To join them on this harrowing adventure, they have called in the source of Crystal’s Imagination, Crystal Storm!
So settle in, hold your loved ones tight, and dodge the falling meteors, it’s Elevator Pitch: Disaster Movie!
Ok, here we woooaaahhh, was that a tremor? I felt a tremor…
Year 9 – Video Game Remakes w/ Cthulhu’s Prodigy
First off – it is Year 9. Every year, the Somethings celebrate another year closer to the heat death of the universe with a celebration of all things Something. To start us off on our anniversary (which, if you look up is the pod-ery anniversary….. get it?) we have joined forces with a friend of the show of years upon years – Cthulu’s Prodigy (@cthulhusprodigy) from Blacker than Black Times Infinity (@bthanbti)
What are we going to talk about – video games! What games though? What about games that you think deserve another lease on life? Another chance at stardom? Games that you think the world wants to see again… or, maybe just you do – either way, we are tackling gaming remakes we want, even if you don’t.
Let the celebration begin!
Hatton vs Haskins – Movie Quote Trivia @ Livestream For The Cure
On May 19that 9am, Livestream For The Cure kicked off with a goal to raise $20,000 for The Cancer Research Institute.
On May 20th, two behemoths met in the ring and duked out for supremacy. Who won? Who’s next? You decide.
That’s right – with Rob as Quizmaster, Somethingcast’s Hatton took on the Maestro of Livestream for the Cure, Nicholas Haskins in movie quote trivia.
If you missed the stream, we thought you would enjoy hearing what happens as these two people play a brutal game of cinema chess … but before you think you know what’s going to happen, ask yourself – what if they weren’t facing each other?
Are you ready for this battle of wits? Well, at least you are… but before we get the episode started, while this year’s goal was reached, the final tally hasn’t been taken yet. There is still time to bring the number even higher, and remember, all of the money goes to the Cancer Research Institute. Click here to donate.
Ok, here we quote!
[THE WHEEL] Creator Spotlight: Crystal Storm
Time again to bring the circle of fun back to the Somethings – it’s time for The Wheel!
This week, hate to spoil it, but we land on Creator Spotlight and the wheel has brought along the creative entrepreneur, writer, creator, roleplayer, fanfictioning, and all around fantastic human on the Prime Material and any other plane as well – Crystal Storm!
So maybe, before you dive in, go take a look at the place for all things Crystal: Crystal’s Imagination! and be certain to sign-up with her Twitch to keep on with her game playing!
But for now, come talk all the nerd shit with Crystal Storm!
Ok here we go!
Hanging w/ Nick Haskins
Nick Haskins is a good dude. Do you know why? Maybe it’s because you were a fan of his podcasting work… (Like, Epic Film Guys, perhaps…) or maybe it’s because you enjoy cooking with him on Twitch (At Nikoli’s Kitchen)
If you listen to us enough, you have most definitely heard his name as the Grandmaster and creator of Livestream for the Cure – where podcasters gather around the ol’ internet fire and fight to help fund a world without cancer. With that said, we got him on the line with us and we talk about podcasting and running a multi-day event, and what such an event could evolve into. It’s a really great time with a really great human.
Ok, here we go!
[RETROSOMETHING] LsftC ’21 – Movie Franchise Amusement Park
There’s a reason we promote the Livestream for the Cure so heavily – and that is because it is an amazing cause, done by an amazing person, featuring tons of talented podcasters (and us!) — we will continue to tell you to go to the link, share the link, and be a part of the weekend in any way you can.
That said, it is the extra Tuesday of the month, so instead of doing a Free-For-All, we are going to replay last year’s Somethingcast episode during the event, where Rob and I concocted our own theme park amusement rides out of famous franchises. And, guess what… one of them is actually happening!
Join us with Nick Haskins and enjoy the ride.
Ok, here there we went!
[SOMETHING IN REVIEW] Shang-Chi w/ Geoff Vita!
It has been a long time since we have tackled the world of comic book swashbuckling, so we’re doing it with style by inviting one of our ol’ friends to talk funny books and martial arts – the maestro of Kung-Fu Drive-in Podcast, Geoff Vita!
We’re heading off to Ta Lo to discuss some of the bigger pictures of the new Marvel Phase, discussing representation in the new run of Marvel movies, and of course how much kickass is the new MCU butt-kicker kickin
So join us as we head to a mystical land, and remember, ‘kick, punch, it’s all in the mind‘
Ok, here we fu!
[NEW!] Christmas Party 2021
First – this is not, I repeat, not a RetroSomething… this is an all-new, all-special, all-Friday, all-Yuletide festive party. Since it’s Christmas Eve, we thought we would let you unwrap a gift first – and it is the gift of Something!
This year, we gathered with Rick & Sarah from Awesome Talk TV – we got Jeof Vita from Kung-fu Drive-In – and we got Becky & Matt from Pre-Rec Live all hanging out and talking about how the year 2021 has gone, the entertainment we ingest every holiday season, and how we, as a people, are all doomed…. You know, the sort of light stuff you can tinsel your tree with.
So please, settle in with some nog and your newly unwrapped certificate to the jelly-o-the-month club (it’s the gift that keeps on giving, Clark) and celebrate your festivus spirit with the rest of us for this Somethingcast Traditional Christmas Roundtable, 2021 Edition!
Ok, here we go Dasher and Dancer and Prancer and Vixen…
