Hobo Stu’s Weekly Recap

Hello everyone,

Twilight: New Moon hits theaters today and the film’s strategy for success seems to be putting as many shirtless guys in every frame as possible.

On some level, I guess it makes sense. The film is aimed at tween girls and lonely women, so why not offer them as much eye candy as possible? But still, I can’t help thinking that less is more. These fellas might look good without their shirts on, but they would look ever sexier if they were all wearing Hobo Stew t-shirts.

If you think Edward Cullen’s skin sparkles in the sunlight now, wait until you see how he shines in one of our stylish new shirts. But you don’t have to be a teenage vegetarian vampire to look great. Any guy, no matter what he looks like, will have the ladies biting their lower lip whenever he walks into the room in one of these bad boys. So order yours today.

Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:

Review – Fight Club: 10th Anniversary Edition (Blu-ray)
I am Jack’s jam-packed Blu-ray release. Fight Club, the cult classic film based on the novel by Chuck Palahniuk, celebrated its 10th anniversary in style with a new Blu-ray version of the film, which is filled with bonus content. This week, we tell if you it’s worth the asking price.

Murphy’s Law – It’s beginning to look a lot like Swine Flu
Sitting in a crowded mall while screaming children climb all over you and ask you for presents is a tough gig to begin with, but this year the threat of Swine Flu has made things even more daunting for our nation’s Santas. This week, Joel Murphy takes a look at how they are coping the threat of this disease.

Outside of the In-Crowd – I don’t understand the world
Why has Kanye West’s career suffered over a harmless outburst while Chris Brown has continued to sell concert tickets despite allegations of assault? Why did a reality show starring a Kardashian get better ratings than the finale of Mad Men? This week Courtney Enlow asks these tough questions in an effort to better understand a confusing world.

Positive Cynicism – Spoiler alerts and Internet crybabies
Readers don’t want to unknowingly have plotlines from a new movie or scenes from an upcoming television show ruined for them, which is why it is now expected that websites will preface this information with a “spoiler alert.” But what about TV shows that have already aired or movies from a decade ago? Aaron R. Davis investigates.

Hobo Radio 107 – Lisa Lackey from Heroes
In a world of superheroes, it’s tough to be an average citizen stuck at home caring for your superbaby, especially when your mind reading husband is still harboring resentment over the fact that you slept with his partner. All that aside, Janice Parkman does her best to keep her chin up and roll with the punches.

Playing Mrs. Parkman on the hit show Heroes is Lisa Lackey, an Australian actor who has been trying to balance her profession with raising a family of her own. Back in August, we talked to Lackey about working on Heroes, accidentally serenading David Lynch and how being Australian is nothing like what you’ve seen on TV. This week we bring you audio highlights from that interview.

Finish That Fortune 12
We provide you with the first half of a real fortune from a fortune cookie and it’s up to you to fill in the blank (and you can’t just write “in bed”). Every week, we will pick the funniest response. You won’t actually win a prize, but you will get the satisfaction of knowing that you are better than everyone else. And your name will be printed here on the site, so that others may bask in your glory.

From the Vault – One on One with Melora Hardin
Michael Scott may have moved on to Holly and Pam’s mom, but back in 2007, the only woman for him was Jan Levinson, his unstable former boss at Dunder Mifflin.

Luckily Melora Hardin, who plays Jan, is much more grounded than her character. In 2007, we talked with Hardin about The Office, Monk (on which she plays Adrian Monk’s slain wife, Trudy) and what it feels like to have almost been Marty McFly’s girlfriend. If you missed it then, here is a second chance to enjoy it.
