Episode 81: Eternals The Real or The Jabroni Returns

November 24, 2021

So, how right and how wrong were we in predicting what fan theories would make their way into Eternals? Thanks to The Man They Call Tim's math skills, we're now able to find out. Check out what happened and who takes home the coveted bottle and bragging rights... but mostly the bottle. Also, fantasy football smack talk, our thoughts on Disney+ Day, and good-by to Brother Cavill.

November 15, 2021

Like the changing of seasons, each new Marvel movie can be counted on to bring a fresh crop of fan theories and otherwise ludicrous ideas about what will happen. So, we decided to dive into what folks were saying about Eternals the week before its premier and see if we couldn't get a few of these things right. We also talk about a possible Dune sequel and a certain underworld from a certain galaxy far, far away.

Episode 78:Free Range Idiocy Trailer Park - Dune, The Eternals, Hawkeye, & The Matrix!

Episode 78:Free Range Idiocy Trailer Park - Dune, The Eternals, Hawkeye, & The Matrix!

October 22, 2021

After a slow start, the movie biz is cranking up nicely towards the end of 2021 with a whole bunch of new releases coming down the pike - with most of them actually hitting theaters! So we figured it was our honor-bound duty to pause from our normal idiocy and take some time to appreciate a few of the flicks coming up based on their trailers. Dig it!

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- It looks like we'll be getting Iron Heart a little bit earlier than her own Disney+ show... like Black Panther 2 early!

- Trailer for Dune - released today in theaters and HBO Max

- Trailer for The Eternals - coming November 5 to theaters only

- Trailer for Hawkeye - coming November 24 to Disney+

- Trailer for The Matrix: Resurrections - coming December 22 to theaters

- And a quick update to the final update of the show... Uncle Todd wound up losing Week 5 in fantasy football

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Tim recommends Neil Gaiman's collection of nonfiction, The View From the Cheap Seats. By the way, the links we try to use for Bookshop.org sources from locally owned book stores and is a great way to get increased selection while not funneling a ton of money to some corporation that's taking it all to Saturn with them in a few years.

Todd thinks you should watch all of Parks and Recreation if you haven't already, and watch it again if you have.

Episode 77: Bradygeddon Part 4 - The Return of the GOAT

Episode 77: Bradygeddon Part 4 - The Return of the GOAT

October 18, 2021

We thought our time talking about Tom Brady and the New England Patriots was at an end... but how wrong we were. When the Bucs made a stop in Foxborough, it was time for us to dust off this subject one more time and reflect on the game itself, Mac Jones, and the legacies of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick for the last time. Or is it....?

Programming note - This was recorded the evening after that game, but our editing has been slowed the last couple of weeks. We're hoping to get back on track this week barring any setbacks from Patrick burning down the office or squirting Cheez Whiz into a USB port.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Here's the No Time To Die trailer in case you haven't seen it already. And since we're horribly late getting to this, Uncle Todd's already been out to see the flick and gives it a hearty thumbs up (for what that's worth)

- A little more information on how the ScarJo - MickeyMoMo dust-up has been settled, giving us peace in our time... for now

- Here are Tom Brady's career stats, which are worth a look if only to see the stupid-long list of appearances on leaderboards and such towards the bottom

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Tim recommends listening to the episode of NPR's How I Built This featuring Fawn Weaver - author and founder/owner of Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey

Todd thinks you should check out Complicated Shadows: The Life and Music of Elvis Costello by Graeme Thomson as well as Wise Up Ghost And Other Songs by Elvis Costello and The Roots

Episode 76: Everybody Shang Chi Tonight!

October 1, 2021

We finally get around to talking about the newest Marvel movie - the 25th in the ever-expanding MCU - Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings! We'll talk about everything we liked and what didn't and whether we'd recommend it to others like the good little Marvel shills that we are. Also, we talk about that photo with Kevin Feige that Hugh Jackman posted awhile back on social media, some happenings in AEW, some random ideas we have for Disney+ shows, and fantasy football.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Hugh Jackman clarified what that photo with Kevin Feige really means

Episode 75: Clearly Canadian Album 1-on-1 - Rush Versus Barenaked Ladies

Episode 75: Clearly Canadian Album 1-on-1 - Rush Versus Barenaked Ladies

September 20, 2021

As you might've noticed by some of our previous episodes, we dig on some music from time to time. So, we decided to take this to the next level by assigning each other a favorite album and then reporting back here so all of the interwebs could hear the results. Through pure coincidence, we both chose some of Canada's favorite sons with Todd being given Moving Pictures by Rush to listen to and Tim getting Gordon by Barenaked Ladies. How will it turn out? Give it a listen!

Oh, and we had some thoughts on Marvel's What If...? at about the halfway mark of its first season and the return of football as well.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- It was Annette Benning who played Mar-Vel / The Supreme Intelligence in Captain Marvel

- Here's the music video for "Tom Sawyer" by Rush in all it's early 1980's glory

- Yeah, side one of Average White Band's AWB album is all killer, no filler

- Check out the crazy of Rush playing "YYZ" in Rio back in the day

- As noted during the edit, Barenaked Ladies were banned from playing a park in Toronto, not Halifax. However, since they wrote "Hello City" about their disastrous few shows in Halifax, Uncle Todd is claiming half credit

- And here's Barenaked Ladies reunited with Steven Page and Andy Creegan at the 2018 Juno Awards after they were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Tim recommends checking out Signals by Rush - the follow-up to Moving Pictures

Todd thinks you should check out BNL's The Bathroom Sessions on YouTube, specifically this version of "Bedside Manor" with Steven Page.

Episode 74: Spidey Mucks The Multiverse! - Spider-Man: No Way Home Trailer Reaction & Theories

September 10, 2021

Just when we think the world is a futile pile of rocks hurtling to disaster, Marvel gives us a little bit of hope that maybe it's worth living a little bit longer. Or, maybe we're just shallow people in need of medication. Either way, we got the new Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer and just had to talk about it!   

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

September 6, 2021

One would think that having an veritable money-making machine would keep a person or company from being a d-bag, but apparently not! Disney managed to get one of their stars ticked off enough to file a lawsuit and then doubled down on their douchebaggery with some harsh comments. We dive into the debacle that was the Black Widow simultaneous screen and stream debut along with news from the MCU, Star Trek, and more!

- How did Warner Bros. and HBO handle pissing off their stars? They paid them.

...AND ANOTHER THING:

Tim says that if you don't stay up late and watching Tombstone no matter what you have going on the next day, you're no daisy!

Todd watched The Suicide Squad so that you don't have to. But hey, it's currently got a 91% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a 72 Metascore in IMDB, so what the hell does he know?
