Fuck Inception, Piranha 3D may just be the movie of the year. But probably not. Either way, this episode was probably the most fun I’ve had recording this year. After 200 odd episodes across 3 different shows, I think I’m finally getting the hang of this whole podcastin’ thing.
I really can’t wait to see The Loved Ones again. In the meantime, here’s the trailer.[qt:/videos/lovedones.mp4 512 288]
In one sentence, what do you actually do all day in your job? I try to make things fascinatinger.
And a whole lot more bullshit discussed, including this amazing picture from the set of Star Wars:
Here’s a nice simple drinking game to make the election coverage tomorrow night a little more enjoyable. It’s all based on the amount of times Eden Monaro is mentioned by the TV pundits.BackgroundEden Monaro is a big arse seat in southern NSW that stretches from the Southern Coast to The ACT. Because of this, it covers almost every demographic and swing voter in the land, from surfers to miners to farmers to loggers to hippies to working class Queenbeyan residents and middle class ACT beauracrats. Since 1972 the good people of Eden Monaro have always voted in the overall winner of the federal ballot, making it darling of federal election TV coverage.BeginnersOr those wishing to remember tomorrow night, should drink whenever these facts are brought up, Eden Monaro is mentioned as the ‘bellwether’ seat, or pundits laugh and say things like “As Eden Monaro votes, so does Australia”. More recently the phrase “Australia’s Florida” can be added to the drinking list.AdvancedOr heavy drinkers should simply drink whenever Eden Monaro is mentioned. Remember; it’s a big arse seat, it takes a long time for all booths to send in their results, you will drink all night and often.Good luck tomorrow and may the best woman win.
It’s been shared a few times already, but this is just lovely.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k7X7sZzSXYs&w=500&h=300]
And a bunch of other stuff too, like The A Team, Shaun Micallef, Kat Stewart, a bit more Scott Pilgrim and the standard banter between myself and the wonderful Justin Gibson. Who are you to resist, eh?
Can Scott Pilgrim ever live up to the expectations we’ve placed upon it? You’ll only find out if you listen.
Did you know that Quentin Tarantino plans to retire from filmmaking at the age of sixty and spend his remaining years writing? The man sure likes to talk a lot, but he’s also a very disciplined mofo, so I’ll assume that he’s serious and committed to this.Tarantino is currently 47. That gives us thirteen more years of his movies. I averaged out the time between his movies so far – three years. That means we get four more movies out of him. That’s maybe a little sad, but of course whatever the finite number of his works, it will have been too few. As for what those movies might be, here are the projects he’s mentioned at one time or another, in the order of my excitement about them:
