  • ChikaraSon of Satan

    – HOORAY for Ian! BOOO for the rest of you on not following up on ‘baby classes’

    – Saying that Brian’s wife, who is a lovely woman, is the female Jared, is the worst thing any of you have ever said

    – “They are yours until they are 18” Jared having no concept of kids in 2014

    – I am in the midst of selling my house and ACTUALLY want to sell the house. We have spent well over $10,000 in the last year improving the house making it more appealing to others. I need help!

    – Ian’s movie taste is all over the place! Year One and My Blue Heaven are both good! He’s right on one of those!

    – Brian was super stoked about the passing of Harold Ramis!

    – Rick Moranis actually made a return about a year ago, releasing a comedy album, doing the podcast tour (Nerdist, etc.) around that time

    – We talked about Heroes on my other podcast, the Weekly Longbox and I think the writer’s strike ruining season two started the downward slope of the show. The first season was nearly perfect, in a pre-Marvel movies world

    – I’m sure the meeting pitch for the ‘Console Wars’ movie was “Uhhh, it’ll be like Big Bang Theory but with video games?” Howard, you’ve done it again!

    – Jared’s thoughts about people who buy the new Nintendo system destroyed my life

    – I have never had a Hot Pocket in my life. And Brian wonders why he has stomach issue, that’s his go to quick food choice

    – Yay, Adam read Guardians of the Galaxy! And is talking about Annihilation! Now I like him! Many people forget there are lots and lots of jokes and quips in the Avengers movie. The simple dum dum
    pitch for this movie is “Avengers meets Star Wars!” I’m in all the
    pitch meetings.

    – The Lloyd Kaufman/crickets thing might be the best moment of podcast ever! SPOILERS!

    – You guys were extra mean to Adam this week, even though Jared did sell him out that the audio quality issues are his fault.

    – Jared, reading in the dark? Why are you PODCASTING in the dark?

    – Since I can’t be included in the actual competition, I’d like to be the quiz master so Adam can play as well~!

    – And the Stinger was great as well! Good job all around boys!
