Episode 30 is here! And I made a new song! Maybe?? I don’t know what it’s going to sound like as I’m typing this, so maybe you’ll like it.
For the first hour or so we catch up about what we’ve been watching (like Daredevil) and a couple of other events. I talk about how I was able to kill 3 crickets within 30 seconds or so. We talk primarily about two things, Screening Room which a service that would allow you to watch new movies “day of” in the home.
and for the second hour or so…BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE.
We both saw it so we talk about what we liked, what we didn’t like, etc. There are spoilers, just in case you are worried.
The whole podcast is the longest we’ve ever done, it seems. We figured if you’re going to bother listening, you’ll just listen to the whole thing.
Hey everyone! Sorry for the long break, but we’re finally back with a new Squacklecast.
This time we talk a little bit about the reason behind using aliases on the web site as well as the inspiration/explanation behind the current theme song for the 3rd set of Squacklecasts. I’ll be debuting a new song for the 4th set (Episodes 30 through 39) with Episode 30.
With David Bowie‘s passing this month, we go into David Bowie‘s career and what movies/music we personally have interest in when it comes to him.
The Prestige is the most notable acting performance to me, other than knowing he was in Labyrinth. Music was obviously a big part of our exposure.
We go into a longer discussion of Terminator: Gensisys and talk about how laser weapons, time travel, and killer robots are much more believable than one billion pre-orders of an operating system. Also, the movie seemed to be trolling people after the third time travel jump. They also turned Terminators into metal zombies. It was basically one big cartoon of a movie.
It’s a lot easier to remember what you didn’t talk about when you do more than one podcast every 3 months.
Happy Founder’s Day everyone! It has been 22 years since anyone last cared about it, but TODAY is the day we do!
Today we have Unnamedhero joining us on the show.
We talk about the Angry Birds movie trailer a bit, which leads to a discussion about reality shows, somehow.
The Pope is in town and we talk about that a little bit. I don’t care about religion that much, so here’s some picture.
Oh, Pope Francis! You so great!
Twenty Eleven or Two thousand and eleven? We spend like 10 minutes talking about how to say numbers.
We skip to John Boehner and talk about how big of a cry baby he is.
I’m gonna miss one thing about Mr. Boner. Well, two.
We go into the Republican debates/controversies a bit. I bring up my Twitter interactions with random crazy conservatives who are outraged over renamed mountains and clocks.
We also announce the new Apple clothing store, iRack. Only black shirts. Then somehow Billy knows random actors who wear all black.
We go over some presidential predictions, and then go into some Fall TV talk. Gotham is back. This leads into a bigger discussion about plotlines and story in comic book TV shows and movies. James Bond stuff comes up. Billy saw the new Fantastic Four. We talk about it.
We go over super heroes and what their party affiliations would probably be. The consensus may surprise you on some of the famous heroes!
That’s it for today! Hopefully the next episode isn’t too far away…
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.
