Isn't it just called a sow? (original podcast date 12-16-13)

After skipping a week due to Lady Razorback soccer broadcast needs (please try saying that aloud without laughing) we're back on the air with reviews of Bad Grampa, Escape Plan, and 12 Years a Slave. We're taking a short break from Trivia, possibly subbing in a movie screening before we return. Stay tuned.

We heard music from:

Blue Thunder, 1983 - Arthur B. Rubinstein
Elektra, 2005 - Christophe Beck
Drive Angry, 2011 - Michael Wandmacher

What a Toole (original podcast date 12-15-14)

Tonight we eulogized the late, great Peter O'Toole, who boogied out of this mortal coil on December 14, 2013. Then, just to make sure he was rolling in his grade, we played some ridiculous fare from "Ren & Stimpy" and the Rankin/Bass Hobbit film is celebration of an annual P-Jacks Tolkien movie. I opined my theater experience since it happened in proximity to other people, but otherwise we had fun talking about our usual fare.

We heard music from:

Lawrence of Arabia, 1962 - Maurice Jarre
"Rem & Stimpy", 1991-1993 - Various
The Hobbit, 1977 - Maury Laws

What killed both the dinosaurs and Arnold...?

(original podcast date 12-9-13)
Here in Northwest Arkansas, 1-2 inches of snowfall can bring the entire tri-county area to its worship of the fact that we don't have the infrastructure to deal with snow or ice. So, the University has been closed since last Thursday while townsfolk try and fail to drive on frictionless surfaces; we've been on glorious vacation, venturing out to sled or holing up in our fortresses of solitude, dreading the return to our white, blue, or taupe-collared jobs.

But our vacation is probably coming to an end tomorrow, and in any case we braved the weather to take advantage of a captive audience.

We heard music from:

Eight Below, 2006 - Mark Isham
The Ice Storm, 1997 - Mychael Danna
The Empire Strikes Back, 1980 - John Williams
The Shining, 1980 - Wendy Carlos

The Riskiest Business

(original podcast date 12-1-13)
Tonight we discussed the much talked about and, it must be said, highly ironic death of Paul Walker who drove furiously into a pole and was killed. Of course, he wasn't driving, but likely complicit in his race-car buddy's showing off in a $300,000 Porsche. We had a few jabs about this, probably provoking the ire of a few listeners, but the bottom line remains that a 40-year-old with a young daughter died under circumstances that could have been avoided. The Fast and the Furious still sucks.

The Boom reviewed Thor: The Dark World and found it silly. Go fig.

We heard music from:

Risky Business, 1983 - Tangerine Dream
The Social Network, 2010 - Atticus Ross
Broken Flowers, 2005 - Mulatu Astatke
