Month long Zombie Awareness Month is this coming May 2015! Also, Month-Long-Holiday Awareness Year starts this year and every year before and after.
We start talking about Star Trek and Star Wars all of a sudden, not sure why, which leads into Interstellar. This is the video Billy talks about where the author of the book The Prestige says Chris Nolan only has a couple of good movies:
Then we go into the different movies Nolan has made and how he is as a general filmmaker nowadays.
On this special Valentine’s Day episode of the Squacklecast, we take a hard look at what makes Valentine’s Day tick in our personal lives. A hate for Candy Hearts and no luck with girls doesn’t prevent us from giving you, our listeners, the very best in dating advice that one can offer when they have absolutely no success or experience in dating.
We talk about what sort of pictures you may encounter or want to have on your dating profile, and what sorts of things an unsuccessful profile (dave’s) has. We also talk about what things NOT to say when you are “flirting” with a potential match.
Taking pictures at the DMV is also covered.
A couple of crazy work stories are also mentioned. Some random customer wanted to “track down” Kevin Smith, the director, and call him on the phone or something to get him to do something.
Kevin Smith’s movie Tusk is discussed a little bit. And we talk about Mike Tyson as an actor, as well as a little bit about the movie Enemy with Jake Gyllenhaal.
We take a Buzzfeed quest for some god-awful reason. Candy Corn vs. Candy Hearts debate. Candy Corn tastes like “not even a good eraser” and Candy Hearts are just compacted chalk.
There is also a “poo physics” lesson. More Transformers/Michael Bay confusion.
We recorded a “Year-End Review” Squacklecast towards the end of 2014. Then things happened and I didn’t have a chance to post it! So now you can listen to something we recorded two weeks ago! How cool is that?
We talk about what was good about 2014, I think. We also talk about the Sony hacks a little bit, The Interview, Phase 2 of the Marvel movies, The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, and some other stuff.
We also rank all of the Hobbit movies and the Lord of the Rings movies. We also talk about Star Trek.
Sorry it was so late and I don’t even have pictures cause I was so lazy!
When I was naming this episode, I thought I was so clever, calling it “The Empire Skypes Back” due to our issues with Skype that we had during the recording that I discovered this little gem:
Anyway, this Squacklecast we had the Unnamedhero, also known as “Ed”– who has been mysteriously writing some game reviews for Squackle — on the show as a guest.
We principally talked about three teasers.
The Jurassic World Teaser:
The Star Wars Teaser:
We ended it probably earlier than we wanted and having to repeat the same things over and over than we’d like, but at least we got the point across that Dino Lord shouldn’t sport the ‘stache in whatever next movie he does.
