Teaser Trailer - Rocks Fall, Everyone Drinks [Explicit]

August 19, 2016

In case anyone's curious what I've been working on, here's just a taste. This project might wind up existing on its own feed rather than this one. If so, there will be far less frequent updates here.

Bad Tinder Profiles Vol. 3 [Explicit]

August 5, 2016
If hell is other people, Tinder is an eldritch gateway to the ninth circle vomiting flames, brimstone, and despair. A gateway that I inexplicably decided to go back and install on my phone again because hey, maybe it's not as bad as I remember.

Well, it's all exactly like I remember, but maybe we can share a couple of laughs together.

Not-So-Dramatic Readings - ORCA Chapter 6 [Explicit]

July 22, 2016
Have I mentioned that I thoroughly hate this character? Because I thoroughly hate this character. Seriously, if he doesn't have something awful happen to him soon, I don't think I can keep going.

Boiling The Lobster - Part 4 [Explicit]

July 8, 2016
In the final part of our long-winded discussion of The Lobster, we go over the final act of the film, speculate on the somewhat polarizing ending, and discuss a smattering of other random topics before we wrap up. This was a lot of fun to record, and I am guessing it won't be the last movie chat series I produce on this feed. So, hopefully you didn't hate it. There will probably be something different next time.

Boiling The Lobster - Part 3 [Explicit]

July 1, 2016

Our in-depth discussion of the plot, themes, soundtrack, cinematography, and basically everything about The Lobster continues. There's only one episode left after this one. Unless we wind up doing another discussion. Then I guess the Lobsterfest will go on. If you can't tell, we're colossal nerds and we're a little obsessed.

Boiling The Lobster - Part 2 [Explicit]

June 24, 2016
With our initial review out of the way, Moira and I start digging deep into every aspect of Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster. Over the next three episodes we spoil virtually every aspect of the plot, so if you care enough to see this film and still haven't done so, go do that before listening to the rest of these.

Boiling The Lobster - Part 1: Spoiler-Free Review [Explicit]

June 17, 2016

Moira and I give a brief overview of Yorgos Lanthimos' unique comedy The Lobster, discuss its themes, and give our hearty recommendation. This episode is pretty short. The next part will not be. We talked at great length about this movie, but for now I wanted to make sure people have a chance to see it before we spoil every single detail of the plot.

Not-So-Dramatic Readings - ORCA Chapter 5 [Explicit]

June 3, 2016
I think I finally figured it out. Just like the section titled The Shark having a shark that died in the very next chapter, the whole big scary orca premise was a total bait-and-switch. The titular orca is actually the hero of this book, and Jack Campbell is the monster. It's kind of like Moby Dick if Moby Dick was much smaller scale, and the book lacked a moral center, a sense of tension, a straightforward well-crafted plot, fascinating characters, or literary quality of any kind.
Hey, at least Jack's not actively thinking about sex with his sister anymore, right? Maybe this is the start of an interesting character arc. Probably not, but maybe.

Not-So-Dramatic Readings - ORCA Chapter 4 [Explicit]

May 20, 2016

Jack Campbell and company have been all over New England hunting a great white shark. Without a catch, they'll lose their marina. Their search is about to end, but will they have what it takes to bring the beast back alive? Will they fail and meet their demise at sea? Or will fate (and maybe a hot marine biologist) intervene?

My apologies to the good people of Canada.

May 6, 2016
In today's adventure, I recount my participation in a strange tradition carried out at my school and likely many others, which served as the bane of my social existence: the square dance.
