Episode 152: FIDDY SHADES OF GRAYSKULL

This episode is a little of the ol’ rough and tumble through the pages of fanfic turned “mommy porn” sensation, Fifty Shades of Grey, with fan-favourite co-host, Kathie (What Introduced Mandi to Fanfic, Apparently). She’s back and ready to dominate us as we delve into fifty shades of tangents while putting our hard limits to the test. All without agreeing on a safe word before hand, mind you.

Unless you’ve been under a rock for six months, you will have noticed a lot of chatter on the interwebs about a Twilight fanfic turned international best-seller. Some call it sexually liberating, some call it misogynistic drivel. Most just make reference to the tampon scene. (Of course, there’s a long history of menstrual sexiness. The fanfic writes itself in these ads from the 1950’s).

As with any book that so divides public opinion, there must be something to it, right? Well… there’s certainly a lot of ellipses.  We were actually a little surprised to discover how little there was to get upset about. In some ways, less then in Twilight. Sure, it’s the old girl meets boy, girl is emotionally controlled by boy, girl decided she can change boy story. But there’s a distinct lack of substance. It’s sort of like getting angry with marshmallows for lacking nutrition.

If you still don’t know what all the fuss is about, this tells you pretty much all you need to know.

And if you like the sounds of this…

…then you’re going to want to stick around for the easter egg where we’ve uncovered the encrypted holodeck logs of a certain Starfleet Captain.

And before you ask, no, we didn’t know about this video before naming the episode.


Episode 73 – Radio Free Hurdles (Gag Reel 3)

July 16, 2010

We’re not sure if people even like these “gag reel” episodes but we pull them out whenever there wouldn’t otherwise be an episode. Mandi was away at the Winnipeg Folk Festival last week and Jakob was busy recording an interview for next week’s show, so this is what you get. Flawed hurdles are better than no hurdles at all, right? Amirite?

Okay, well. Here’s our third gag reel episode anyway.

This time around we’re not just serving up a smorgasbord of gaffs, but some choice cuts and never before heard classics like:

  • Memories of Kurt Cobain (15 minutes of tangent from either the 1st or 2nd Zombies episode)
  • Mediocracy (unreleased Idiocracy mini-episode recorded in March 2009)
  • Inthest ith betht (Igor & Banana warm-up for Sexy Hurdles 2)
  • Buffy / Twin Peaks re-cast (out-take from Buffy)
  • Trevor smoking in the boy’s room at a Motley Crue concert
  • Igor ‘Grew a Banana (Making a merkin with Ro Karen)
  • And much, much more!
