One podcast, roughly 66 minutes of enlightened, intelligent and provoking conversation about college football and no mentions of Johnny Manziel! It’s true, our college football preview is (99.9%) Manziel free. Instead, Adam and Anthony talk about all of the other things they are excited for this college football season. They focus on things like Lache Seastrunk’s Heisman campaign, whether or not they are actually rooting for Alabama and Dark Lord Nick Saban to win this season and, of course, more #MACTION than you could have wanted.
Make sure to share your thoughts on who will win this year’s national championship and Heisman trophy as well as any other musings about the college football season. Email the guys at firstname.lastname@example.org or call in and leave a message.
The Premier League is back and Adam and Anthony are here to break down NBC’s coverage and to digest some of the week’s intriguing results. Adam’s inaugural week as a premier league fan did not end happily, with Arsenal falling to Aston Villa 3-1 in the weekend’s most interesting match. The fellas call up their buddy, and longtime Arsenal supporter, Drew to dissect what the hell is going on with Arsenal and whether or not Arsene Wenger is on the coaching hot seat. They also discuss the transfer window, which teams have done a solid job of restocking talent and which team (coughARSENALcough) has not made the most of its budget.
The fellas break all that down and more, and even dive into a few other non-soccer related notes in Episode 57.
If every podcast that record did make you laugh, would you listen forever? We ask this and many other probing questions in our lame list of our favorite fictional bands. We bang on the trashcan while eating killer tofu at the sounds of the both bands that are actually talented, fringe bands that are inspired by the ’80s and ones whose music is inside of us. Can anyone unseat the famed Smash Club frequenters, Jesse and the Rippers? (That asshole from Fat Fish Records aside.) Or will reputable bands like Spinal Tap and Stillwater take the top spot?
Then the fellas move into a discussion about real actors, movies and TV shows. Adam and Anthony break down their joint confusion over the price of real estate in Elysium and look at how Orange is the New Black became must-see Netlix-vision. As always, feedback is most welcome and avenues for said feedback can be found on the right side of the page.
And we’ll leave you with this. Enjoy having it stuck in your head for the rest of the day!
August marks the beginning of the end of the dog days of summer and Adam and Anthony decided that it’s time to discuss football again. With Anthony settled in California and Adam back from vacation, the fellas turn their attentions to the hullabaloo surrounding Johnny Manziel and his proclivity for putting himself in precarious situations. But the fellas ponder whether or not the excessive coverage of Manziel will affect how they watch Texas A&M this year.
The fellas discuss that and more football/NCAA related topics, including: the premiere of Hard Knocks, their joint excitement over the Steelers and Le’Veon Bell, why Jay Bilas is the lone redeemable byproduct of the Duke basketball program and more.
A bit late this month due to Adam and Anthony’s respective vacations and/or adventures to California, but the August movie preview is here. The fellas take a look at the most intriguing cinematic offerings of the month. Can Neil Blomkamp turn Elysium into a critical and commercial hit, like he did with District 9, with a big studio and a $100 million budget behind behind him? (Lordy we hope so.) Is the fellas’ unbridled excitement for Simon Pegg’s latest venture warranted? (Yes. Yes it is.) What the hell is happening with centaurs and Percy Jackson? (No effing clue.) And is it strange how excited Adam is for The Spectacular Now? (Again, yes. A thousand times yes.)
But this month there is an added twist: for all most major movies, the fellas will throw out their admittedly rough predictions for opening weekend box office numbers. (Early results are not too great.) Make sure to check back throughout the month for updated numbers. (All numbers in millions of dollars.) Continue reading →
