21 – Cartoons and Quizzes: The Good, The Bad, and the Commodore 64

A heartfelt reflection on death begins this episode, and because everybody needs a contingency plan in place, the Brothers Denton vaguely discuss their suicide pact. Because we’re not perfect, we have a few moments of self-doubt as we talk about our recent reading choices; our Mom watched Mad Max: Fury Road and had some opinions; Pauldrons: The Movie comes up, and we get a little bit pissed about that, too. Rance ends up testing Bob’s knowledge with a few CickHole quizzes, but Bob returns fire by bringing a Harry Potter quiz of his own to the table as well as another round of What’s In Bob’s Man-Purse? Afterward, we discuss the depth (and mostly the terrible-ness) of some of our favorite cartoon shows: James Bond, Jr. (awful), Muppet Babies (it’s actually pretty great), He-Man (it’s phenomenal, okay?), and Nickelodeon shows of the 90s (Rugrats, Rocko’s Modern Life). Before we’re done, Bob talks about his favorite Kickstarter campaign of the week: Commodore 64: A Visual Compendium (Second Edition).

18 – The Force Awakens: Or, Star War 2 Force Plz Wake Up

You’ve seen it.  We’ve seen it.  Pretty much everybody alive has, too, because it’s been over thirty years since the last actual Star Wars movie, and we’re all breathing meat-sacks with eyeballs, so there’s no excuse not to.  What self-respecting podcast wouldn’t venture into the depths of discussion offered by a viewing of Star Wars: The Force Awakens?  Listen in as Rance makes a terrifying (and altogether poorly-supported admission) to Bob.  Before their reflection on TFA, however, the Brothers Denton get heated about dorks who don’t know anything about Mad Max: Fury Road, and after, Rance implores Bob to test his Jedi mind-skills with a custom-built true/false quiz on All Things Stur Wur.  Play along!  You’ll absolutely hate it.
