  1. The Rewatchables podcast did an episode on Dazed. I thought one of the more interesting notes about the movie is that Pickford was supposed to be one of the major characters, but he (21) hooked up with Mila Jovavich (16 at the time) and even got married, which later got annulled by Jovovich’s family. The cast was mostly annoyed by the whole thing and especially him. Linklater is very big on natural dynamics and relationships between the cast, so he slowly wrote him out of the movie and turned MM’s bit part into a much bigger deal. MM was famously known to be an instant hit with the mostly non Texan cast. It’s why you see Pickford a lot at the beginning, but not towards the end, and vice versa for MM.
  2. Lol.. I’m a huge fan of Newsradio and watch full episodes on YouTube all the time. It’s run was fantastic, but only for four seasons. The fifth season after Phil died was terrible and unwatchable.
  3. My absolute favorite television show of all time as a kid. Like a lot of great shows in that area era, it over extended its run and limped to the finish line, but it’s peak was funny as hell. Just a great concept for a show that allowed for a core cast to deal with a diverse general public. And the core cast was fantastic. I particularly liked the interactions between Dan/Harry and later Dan/Roz. I’ve always kinda felt Newsradio was its late 90’s clone.
  4. Houston based company claims they’ve created a vaccine. Has this been posted? https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/medical/hbj-houston-genetic-engineering-co-completes-coronavirus-vaccine-ceo-says/ar-BB10aIUU
  5. The SNL guests (Spade, Sandler, Baldwin, etc..) all make for very interesting and entertaining discussion, but it does come off as either lazy producing or they're having real trouble getting A-List quality guests beyond those handful of guys. Sending Richard and his wife to the Super Bowl is an awesome gesture to a seemingly good-hearted dude regardless of who paid for it, even if it did require him to create some show content in exchange. Doing Super Bowl material two weeks after the Super Bowl because you took a two week vacation after the Super Bowl is lame as hell and something Howard would have slammed other shows and hosts for doing years ago.
  6. It's been background TV in my house a handful of times and besides the predictable, formulaic aspect to it, what kills the show is the bar owners are typically impossible to root for. Mostly just dipshits who scraped together a few bucks for a bar they thought would be a non stop party.
  7. Memet got serious airtime around Fall of 2018 and that lasted until springtime or so in 2019, then fell off the planet. The feedback had to have been that listeners just didn't like him. He over played the millennial stereotype to an unlistenable level. He basically portrayed someone who embodied every negative characteristic one generation could be known for. It's been all Brent's soft swinging and Chris Wilding ever since.
  8. What, I can’t enjoy some hard boiled eggs with microwaved tilapia just because I’m confined in small quarters with a hundred strangers?
