  • Tonight's Beverages: Okocim (Dirk & Bob); Kentucky and Royal Ball Slaps (Otto).
  • Special extended dance mix intro for our 2nd Anniversary and Third Vulture Bob "I don't need no stinking nickname" Koski is in the house.

    Sentinel is ready to partay!
  • Mop-up from last week's show. 
  • Do people know what liner notes and commentary tracks are anymore?

  • True Grit's hanging scene:
  • Patton Oswalt's Twitter rant about politically correct comedy.
  • Observations about the themes in the "Live from..." intros.
  • An attempt to explain our recording process; better read the clear explanation here. Dirk's Sweetwater rep is Dave Walent. Note: We don't get any kickback if you shop at Sweetwater, but Dave's a fellow gamer (likes the Battlefield series), an all-around cool dude and guitarist and has a young family to support so if you need musical gear, please drop him a line at the link and tell him the Culture Vultures sent you! You'll get candy, too!
  • First Music Break:
  • Bob tells of his latest trip to England, the opera singer's wife he met, the hooligan he encountered and Beatles stuff.
  • Cynthia Lennon RIP.
  • Tina Sinatra says Ronan Farrow isn't Frank's kid. Right.

  • The Sacha Baron Cohen Freddie Mercury biopic is now NOT happening.
  • 30 Rock's Jackie Jormp-Jomp reference:
  • Van Halen's craptastic performance of "Panama" on Jimmy Kimmel Live; the raw footage of David Lee Roth busting his nose; their lame album cover:
  • Jay Z launches Tidal, a streaming music service that costs twice as much as the competition, with his mega-rich pals. If you have good ears, you can get half the free trial normal people get.
  • Bob and Dirk reiterate their enlightened wisdom about the inferiority of vinyl. Suck it, hipsters!
  • Second Music Break:
  • An in-depth discussion of the "Blurred Lines" case and the chilling prospect of anything being similar being a target.
  • FACT CHECK: Dirk can't find the song he was thinking of off the Pretty Woman soundtrack; it must've been something else.
  • Not sure if this was the the video Dirk was thinking of, but here's a short documentary about the history of the "Amen Break":
  • The Gonzo "Humpty Dance" mashup video mentioned:
  • Dirk can't talk about Arrow S3 yet because Otto hasn't watched it yet, but we talk about the latest episodes of The Flash and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Mark Hamill's voice career, and giving up on iZombie.
  • Stephen Amell to play Casey Jones in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2. Yay.
  • Who will Caity Lotz play in the upcoming Arrow/Flash spin-off series?
  • Wondering why Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. looks so cheap?

  • The behind-the-scenes for the Bicycle Girl referenced showing the combo of prosthetic and CGI VFX:
  • The girl who cosplays Carol who appeared on Talking Dead is 4th from left here:
  • Third Music Break:
  • The spot-on Honest Movie Trailer for Intercrapular (sp?):
  • Check out the Couch Tomato videos here. Fact Check: When Dirk subscribed there were under 1000 subscribers (something like 847 IIRC); less than 24 hours later as we do these show notes the channel has 102,714 subscribers!
