Good day and happy New Year Intermission listeners! This week Josh makes toast, Guy throws a fit, and Craig talks about do-dads. Then we yell at each other about seeing Passengers. Not about the movie, just the process of going to the movie. Guy then tells us about the time he almost burned down a condo for some pizza rolls, and we ramble on about Star Wars. So same old same old. Enjoy!…Or don’t, why would I care?
To start off the episode, Josh makes some toast and spreads some hellish Australian stuff all over it. Then he makes everyone eat it. It’s called Vegemite and apparently it’s the down under version of Nutella or something. Craig and Josh were real excited for it for some reason, and nobody else seemed too enthused. Except for Guy, he was very enthused about NOT eating it. Go figure, Guy doesn’t want to participate in a food challenge that doesn’t involve pizza rolls. But we make him eat it anyway, which didn’t go over quite so well. Basically, he throws a fit and runs away. Our only mistake was not locking the door behind him. Not surprisingly, nobody else was all that into it but Josh. Even Craig made some nasty faces and refused to eat another bite. All and all, Josh ate five pieces of Vegemite covered toast. So next week we’re getting him an Akubra hat and a pet wombat because he’s Australian now.
New Years Eve Mishaps
Craig regales us with his New Year’s Eve experience with Josh and the Intern. He had this big plan to play this fancy old game called Steel Battalion. It would have been great had not the xbox not worked. Then we fixed it (Josh fixed it), and then the game wouldn’t play. We then fixed that, kind of. It was totally destroyed in the process of fixing it, long story, but what finally got us at least an hour of gameplay out of it was holding it up to a 60 watt light bulb to 20 seconds. I know, crazy right? It was Josh’s idea. Nobody thought it would work, not even Josh. Hell, the baby even laughed at us when it was suggested. But it worked! Sort of, it won’t play now nor ever again, but that one hour, man was it sweet.
So earlier this week it was uncovered that Guy and Corey didn’t invite anyone to see Passengers with them. Josh was trying to invite everyone (through the group text) and Guy told him that he and Corey went together to see it beforehand without inviting anyone else. This resulted in utter texting chaos. With Guy being totally at fault. Anywho, Josh and the Intern just went on a bro-date to see it without them. Yeah! But back to Passengers, it was really good. There was a nice twist that fortunately wasn’t revealed in the trailer, but Guy goes and spoils it for Craig. Josh, Guy, Corey, and the Intern all give it both thumbs up! Good for it. Then we talk about the new Underworld movie. Nobody saw it, just talked about it.
Reminiscing With Guy King
Guy tells a tale of his senior vacation which involved pizza rolls, a burning towel, and a strip club. I would try to retell it here but that would be impossible, so just listen to the show.
Then Guy and Corey watch Specter, Spectacle, Specerecucal? No, Spectral! They liked it. Liked it a lot. Craig talks about streaming services. And so does Corey. And So does Josh. And Guy gets yelled at about Star Wars. This leads into a ten-hour conversation about Star Wars.
