The season continues as newest official podcaster (and senior weather/traffic advisor) Val joins Chris to discuss everything movie soundtrack. Literally everything.
Like, we didn’t really want to, but Val made like, a PowerPoint, and like, a Google… page, so, we had to stick to the plan this time. I mean, she went through all that effort, and all.
It’s a lot of fun, though, as we found there’s a lot more to movie soundtracks than just what you remember from the trailer (unlike movies.) However, we’d recommend you treat this episode like you’d treat viewing a film and take an intermission about half-way through. Grab some popcorn, use the restroom, whatever. Unless you’re driving. Then you’ll just have to keep on listening until you can stop at a popcorn stand.
This week is slim pickins at the Static Podcast. Chris and Val are off this week, no one knows what happened to Koop, so that leaves Podcast Core Members Robert and John to man the microphone. Apparently we failed at that too, because Robert sounds like he is yelling no matter how much John turned down his mic. Even his Gentle Whispering is loud.
In this episode, John gets a halftime gig for the 2019 bowl. We discuss the Super Bowl, make some noises with random object, and Robert and John tell knock knock jokes before delving into our favorite YouTube content creators and channels.
*Twenty Minutes into the Podcast*
Robert: “So are we going to cover the topic for the week or are we just going to wing this episode?”
This episode starts off the rails and doesn’t ever really recover. John, Chris and Jason discuss Fugees “The Score” 20 years after its release and ponder the legacy of Everlast. Things get weird, words get slurred. It’s another quality podcast from the Static Team.
In this podcast, Jason, Robert and John talk about the best sandwich shops for stoners, how expensive Jewel-Osco is, and Jason and John put their friend Nancy on blast for shopping at Wal-Mart. John struggles to describe his definition of a “cool vibe.”
Also, we talk about the history and music of political activist Fela Kuti.
So we’re stupid late on this cause life gets in the way sometimes. But here we have John and Robert’s best of 2015 show. Robert is really drunk, John sounds he works a drive through, Robert steals jokes from Patton Oswalt, we go way over time, and it’s over two months late. We’re doing good at this podcast thing right?!?
Have we finally done it? Is it the best podcast we’ve ever recorded?
Thankfully for you, listeners, someone finally had the guts to uncover the most popular yet unheard band ever: Mary Stuart Mastodons. We delve into their eclectic style of music, drama within the band, and even with all the fanfare, Robert is still not a fan.
In music news this week, we talk about POTUS and FLOTUS’s favorite songs of 2015, Noel Gallagher hates Adele, apparently, and The Unattainable Wu-Tang album.
Quotes from the show:
“If you’d like to email me and tell me I’m wrong, the email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, just put John in the subject line and I’ll read it in 6 months.”
“I would say, as a lover of chimichungas, for one, yes, I would steal Pat Smear’s chimichungas, personally, if I had the chance, but if someone stole MY chimichungas, I’d probably kick them off the tour.”
“You sound about 35% sexier this week, Jason.”
