Alternate Title: "Opossums Getting Test Tube Babies"
- Tonight's Beverages: Labatt Ice (Dirk); Kentucky Ballslap (Kentucky Bourbon + hard cider - Otto)
- This is our first run of four consecutive weekly episodes since July-August 2016: Episode #131 - "Gay Porn in a Jungle with Machine Guns"; Episode #132 - "Fun & Malfeasance"; Episode #133 - "All I Wanted Was A Pepsi"; Episode #134 - "Salma Hayek's Bisexual Taco"
- Recap of the Detroit All-Star Garage Rock Punk Revue II. Our profile of Inside Out guitarist Lynda Mandolyn.
- Detroit music venue UFO Factory damaged in a very suspicious construction "accident."
- Looking back at the E3 announcement of the Xbox One X and how it's probably going to sell poorly.
- The bogus complaints about Atomic Blonde having a "bury your gays" trope.
- Referenced: Strong Bad, "Trogdor"
- Dirk reviews Bad Santa 2 and we both talk The Founder and how paradigm shifting the McDonald's brothers were.
- Fact Check: McDonald's (as we know it) started in 1955. Burger Chef was 1957; Hardee's 1960; Taco Bell 1962. Dairy Queen started in 1940, but soft serve ice cream was a different thing than a burger joint.
- First Music Break: Palette-Swap Ninja, "Luke Is In The Desert"
- Netflix buys comic book publisher Millarworld.
- David Letterman is going to do a show on Netflix.
- The Disney-Netflix deal is ending in 2019. Here's what that means for what you can/can't see.
- Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is Disney's first 4K UHD BD release.
- The creators of Game of Thrones new show, Confederate, which imagines an alternate history where the South won the Civil War. The usual outraged people are outraged to the point the black co-creator has to speak up.
- Amazon announces Black America, a show set in a world where blacks were given their own enclave/nation after the Civil War as reparations.
- Legends of Tomorrow is adding a Muslim female hacker character to stick it to Trump. Also why Dirk stopped watching Supergirl.
- Star Trek Discovery announces its premiere dates. How they're free of Gene Roddenberry's stifling rules about conflict. Jonathan Frakes (Riker on Star Trek: The Next Generation) to direct an episode.
- STD's producers have banned any mentions of God because shut up, despite the long history of religious themes in previous Star Trek series and movies.
- Kathryn Bigelow's 1967 Detroit riots/Algiers Motel movie, Detroit, flopped opening weekend, probably because it was marketed as an SJW scoldfest that audiences were reluctant to pay for.
- Girls creator, Lena Dunham (the bete noir of the Culture Vultures), fresh from lying about her dog being abused, so she had to dump it, decides to try and get a couple of imaginary stewardesses fired for offending her. The Stasi police state tactics she employed demonstrates how we're losing our free speech culture.
- >> GOOGLE MEMO STUFF <<
- Google fires an engineer whose internal memo suggesting ways to increase diversity triggers SJWs who called for his head.
- The memo itself for you to see what's actually in it. (A TL;DR "what it doesn't say" piece.)
- Liberal magazine The Atlantic called out the completely misleading coverage. So did the conservative site, The Federalist and others who pointed out how CNN completely twisted the story.
- Some women at Google were so offended at the supposed stereotypes in this memo that they stayed home because they couldn't even.
- Newsweek smears observant Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro as "alt-right" which is like saying Ted Nugent was a member of PETA.
- Harry Potter creator JK Rowling lies about Trump ignoring a handicapped kid, then days later "apologizes" to the kid's family, but not the guy she lied about. (Fact Check: It was Piers Morgan who called her out, not sci-fi/fantasy author Piers Anthony.)
- Fired Googler is likely to sue.
- How Google bought itself backlash, should face an anti-trust investigation, and other Googlers are creating blacklists to punish wrong-thinking employees.
- Additional Reading: Google values diversity (just not of thought) and how conservatives survive in Silicon Valley. (Hint: Deeply closeted.)
- Second Music Break: Palette-Swap Ninja, "Reprise/A Day in the Life of Red Five"
- Michael Crichton's "Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect" in which you read something you know is completely wrong in the paper, then continue reading and believing the rest of the paper anyway.
- RIP: Country music legend Glen Campbell; Haruo Nakajima (the original Godzilla performer).
- Chris Pratt and Anna Faris separate.
- Shout-out to our Patreon supporter.
- The Harvard Crimson site was hacked hilariously.
