Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Lost: Down the Hatch – Jacob’s Ladder
Chris Kirkman continues his fantastic Lost analysis with a complete look at “The Substitute.” He shares his theories on the names in Jacob’s cave, the Biblical implication of Jacob’s Ladder and the possible identity of the little boy who spoke to MIB. He also recommends tasty bourbons.
Murphy’s Law – Know your POTUS
President’s Day has become nothing more than a day to get off work and buy furniture at discounted rates. Joel Murphy argues that we should use the time to learn more about our forgotten Presidents – guys like Zachary Taylor and Benjamin Harrison. It’s time to know your POTUS.
Outside of the In-Crowd – In favor of Tila Tequila
Tila Tequila may be a train wreck, but thanks to her outlandish Twitter updates, Courtney Enlow believes she is an entertaining one. Enlow shares a few of her tweets and makes the case for enjoying the unstable starlet in this week’s column.
Positive Cynicism – We are the fail
Time and time again on this site, we’ve torn apart pointless remakes churned out by the uncreative powers that be in the entertainment industry. The remake of “We Are The World” may have been recorded to benefit Haiti, but that’s not stopping Aaron R. Davis from blasting it too.
Hobo Radio 119 – It all sucks
In the eyes of Joel Murphy and Lars, Shutter Island, Kevin Smith’s battle with Southwest Airlines and Superman all share one thing in common – they all suck. Luckily, mocking things that they dislike has become the bread and butter of Hobo Radio, so this week our dynamic duo is in rare form.
From the Vault – One on One with Michael Kostroff
It’s ironic that on The Wire, a show focusing on the drug trade in Baltimore, one of the most evil characters is the lawyer who represents the street thugs. But Maury Levy is a smarmy, unapologetic villain who fans love to hate. In 2008, we talked to Michael Kostroff about his character, the show and why he can’t pick out a tomato in peace. If you missed it then, enjoy it now.
