We give you...Before Jon
This week it's just Lance and Berg recording late on a Tuesday night like in the old days of Taco Tiki Tuesday. We crown Big Cat the champ of his biggest loser contest and and get an update on what has been going on with him recently, a trip to the NFC Championship game in Seattle. Then Berg talks new albums, Against Me!, and Boba Fett tattoos which segway nicely into a discussion about Disney and their properties. Rounding it up with casting rumors, future comic movies, fan casting JLA and all things Sherlock. Enjoy Ladies and Gentlemen, and of course, our Listeners.
We give you...Before Jon
Welcome back to another edition of Funny. This week it is only Berg and Big Cat. They start off the show talking about the fact that they finally, and we do mean finally, received an email from a listener. We move onto the casting of Ben Affleck as Batman, and the sense of entitlement that the nerd community has developed over the last decade. Finally we talk about Berg’s big day. He graduated, and we are so proud. So sit back, listen, and join us for our celebration!
The whole gang is here. If you want to know what we discuss this week, try listening to the show. Who knows, you might enjoy it.
Rusty Sheriff's Badge
Berg and Big Cat return in an all new episode! The General is away competing in a Beer Pong tourney in Las Vegas so it’s just the two of us for episode 21. We start with a catch up of what’s been happening then move in to a mini H.A.R. (Half Assed Review) of The Wolverine. Which leads us into the rabbit hole that is the worst tweak of a comic book character in a movie? We talk books and Lance throws out a “mystery” question that Berg is unprepared for, followed by Berg getting on his soap box about a subject. Finally, we close with a discussion about TV series that need a film to wrap up the storyline. Listen and enjoy the nerding out episode of Funny.
Been Too Busy
Welcome back to Funny! We start out the show discussing the fact that the General is going to Vegas. With vacation on his mind, he wants to know where we want to travel. Anywhere in the world, and more importantly why? We move on to talk about the latest performance enhancement scandal in baseball. This time Ryan Braun is the dumbass, again. Since we were already on the subject of baseball, Big Cat has the guys play a game of guessing the World Series odd of each team now that the All Star Game has passed. We were ready on the topic of gambling, so the guys make a bet on the name of the new spawn that could one day be the King of England. We end the show discussing the just announced Superman/Batman Movie.
Fucking With Source Material
The guys all gather together for their weekly chat. After recapping their activities for the week, and the annoyances that go with it, the guys each pick one minor annoyance in their life that they would gladly eliminate. Lance tries to discuss work fun work activities, only to find out that both Mills and Berg dislike the “recreational activity” golf. Since that topic worked out so well, Lance tries again, this time discussing TV pilots. What are each of the guys looking for in a pilot and what makes it good? Once they lay out what they are looking for in a pilot, they list some of their favorite pilots of the past that never succeeded as a series. Conversely, they discuss some HORRIBLE pilots that end up leading into long running series. Listen, Enjoy, and let us know what you think.
That Was Vague
They guys get together for their weekly chat. They start off recapping the experience going to the Fathom Events playing Star Trek: the Next Generation’s classic two parter “Best of Both Worlds”. This unique setting allowed plenty of fodder for comedy gold. After a slight delay, we realize that this is our what’s happening in May show. On May 26th is the 10k Rum Run in Tualatin, running with the booze involved. How can that be anything but a good idea? There are also two comedians coming to town this month, Amy Schumer and Bill Cosby. If you need some spiritual enlightenment, the Dalai Lama will be in town on the 9th. Berg and Mills have a concert list coming to town this month for you to check out: Mumford & Sons, Primus, Young Turks, Cake, and Ozomatli. There is one day in May that you shouldn’t miss; Mother’s Day is May 12th. If you need an idea for a gift for Mom, check out the Crafty Wonderland. Mills is in town to be able experience his first Rose Festival. Instead, he would rather participate in Cosplay at Wonder NW. Finally, after getting through the cultural events going on, the guys get into the meat & potato of the happens of May, the Movie Releases. The guys are stoked for the movie releases.
Sean Wynn (Sean W), a local comic book store manager, joins us this week. Lance & Sean can’t help but bring up comics with Sean W throughout the show. We start off talking about some recent casting Hollywood has done. Now that Megan Fox has been cast as the female lead in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, read April O’Neil, the guys decide to cast the rest of the movie. As the discussion moves on, the Lone Ranger and white wash casting of Johnny Depp as Tonto is flushed out. Absurd Arguments is back this week, where we argue whether you'd rather go see a Ke$ha or Tim McGraw concert and why. After a little more comic book talk, we end the show talking about Star Trek: Into the Darkness and who Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing, or at least currently rumored to be playing. Give it a listen, and let us know what you think.
Three friends get together every week to hash out pop culture. What's left is, well....Funny!
