Alternate Title: "Weed Over There Is Bad"
  • Tonight's Beverages: Water and Angry Orchard Hard Cider (Dirk); Kentucky Ball Slap (Otto).
  • It's still raining.
  • Kudos for Otto.
  • Josh Brolin's stepmoms and Dirk never saw The Goonies
  • Sin City: A Dame To Kill For totally bombed at the box office and prompts an attempted discussion of Robert Rodriguez's recent career.
  • Music from Voyag3r (say" Voyager 3") - "Il Guanto Nero." Album release show is Sept. 6.
  • FXX marathon of The Simpsons is being aired in the wrong aspect ratio. Netflix does it, too.
  • Hard to believe that getting proper aspect ratio has been a battle for a quarter century already:

    The Honest Movie Trailer for Ghostbusters shows the part where Ernie Hudson was cut at 1:25:
  • David Lynch's Eraserhead start screen:
  • Donald Glover finally gets to play Spider-Man after a fashion.
  • Dirk reviews The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
  • What Otto's Electro figure looks like:
  • Rage about the Spider-Woman variant cover:
  • The Daredevil issue Dirk has:

    The book Otto was talking about; turns out Miller only wrote it as Bill Sienkiewicz did the art he didn't like:
  • The bimbo who is suing for $10 million because an uncensored shot of her on Dating Naked got broadcast. Really. 
  • Feminine hygiene products. Really.
  • True Blood wrapped up (yawn) and controversy over shooting Game of Thrones nudity.
  • The proper way to pronounce Lena Headey's name. (Dirk was right.) 
  • Fact Check: George RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR Martin is 65, not 75. (Dirk was wrong.)
  • Absolutely terrible trailer for the Heavenly Sword movie which doesn't feature Nariko. Looks like Alfred Molina is in for Andy Serkis.
  • Spoiler-heavy discussion of Guardians of the Galaxy, so if you didn't see it in the past month, that's on you.

  • Movie Bob's discussions of Howard the Duck in comic and movie forms.
  • The Drax Mini-Bobble figure:
  • OnePlus manages to shoot themselves in the PR foot again.
  • Cool takes on the played-out ALS Ice Bucket Challenge:

  • Why Elysium was terminally stupid in one clip as mentioned:

  • Blue MoFi premium headphones.
  • J.Law shows up at 1:40, so don't blink:
  • Jackie Chan's son faces either 3 years or death(?!) for weed possession

  • Dirk's ridiculous DVD/BD collection bought for cheap.
  • Origin FREE On-the-House game for August is Wing Commander III: Heart of the Tiger, a 20-year-old title with cut scenes starring Mark Hamill, Malcolm McDowell, Tom Wilson, Ginger Lynn Allen and more. Save $5! (Deal good thru Sept. 3, 2014.)

  • Album available for free to Amazon Prime Music users; not on Play All-Access:
  • We do a spoiler-free review of Guardians of the Galaxy. (Dirk's full review.) We'll do a full spoiler nerd deconstruction in a few weeks.
  • Not the way she looks in Guardians of the Galaxy (i.e. not green), but Zoe Saldana is still muy caliente!

  • Discussion of Dirk's reviews of Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, Broadway Idiot (Dirk's review of the stage show), I Am Divine and John Waters: This Filthy World
  • Until doing these show notes, Dirk had no idea this video even existed! (Imagine what's happening now that he'll catch on to in 26 years.)

  • Discussion of Satori Circus' show, "...poems we tell ourselves..." held last weekend. Some photos:

  • Restaurant reviews for Zenith and Rock City Eatery. (BTW, Zenith is in the SE corner of the Fisher Building.)
  • The surprising album that strippers Otto used to DJ for would request.
  • This is a hate crime (according to SJWs):

  • Amelia Bedelia Wikipedia hoax article.
  • An interesting article about prop money for movies and Dirk's close encounter with high school counterfeiting. 
  • Breaking primary election news.

  • Very cool bracket for cell phones. It will hold even huge phablets like the Galaxy Note 3.
  • Waze navigation app sucks.
