This week we talk about childhood Christmas presents ranging from Thunderbirds toys to the Commodore 64. With a meander through the Action Man cartoon series and Spiderman/X-Men comics.
Sometimes you want to go where everybody hears the blues a-callin’ tossed salads and scrambled eggs.
But then you have to go home. This week we look at the final episodes of both Cheers and it’s spin off show Frasier.
As Ireland is gripped by sadness over the apparent cancellation of Garth Brook’s five Dublin gigs – Patrick and Alan discuss the entity known as Troyal Garth Brooks and the man whose body he he has been in inhabiting – Chris Gaines. Gaines was the son Australian-American son of an Australian Swimming Coach and a former Olympic Swimmer. He released his Greatest Hits in 1999 before Brooks once again consumed him.
This week we look a Ireland’s favorite 25 year old Turkey. He’s presented television, he’s released albums and he’s performed at the 2008 Eurovision song contest. We talk about the musical output of one Dustin The Turkey.
It’s Pilot Season here on The Insert Witty Name Show and so we talk about the feature length pilot to David Lynch’s Twin Peaks – which one of us has seen before and the other hadn’t! Also it was the hottest day of the year when this got recorded so be prepared to listen to two of the literally hottest podcasters of all time. We also talk about the fact there is a new Unemployed Historian that had just gone online minutes before we recorded.
This week on The Insert Witty Name show we’re in the SAME ROOM! (Which explains the different quality in audio) We also watched “Manos” The Hands of Fate – which one of us hadn’t seen before this. Things that also come up – the great de-Blippining that occurred last week, whether or not Ghosts exist and other fun stuff.
On this weeks podcast we suffer existential dread while talking about our favorite internet series. We talk about videos podcasts and are both very tired for very different reasons.
