Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Lost: Down the Hatch – My Jabroni Has a First Name
Kate got kidnapped for the 26th and 27th time, Desmond started to get a little creepy and we discovered who the last recruit is on this week’s episode of Lost. If you found yourself lost during the episode, Chris Kirkman has you covered with a recap, expert analysis and a tasty episode-inspired drink recipe.
Murphy’s Law – We should have just asked mom how you two met
How I Met Your Mother began with a rather clever premise – a father sitting down his two children to tell them how he and their mom met. However, after five seasons and 108 episodes, Ted Mosby still hasn’t gotten around to telling that story. Joel Murphy thinks the show’s premise is beginning to wear a little thin.
Outside of the In-Crowd – In praise of sluts
In the words of Coop from Wet Hot American Summer, “Sluts rock.” So this week, Courtney Enlow pays tribute to some of television’s greatest sluts, including Kathy Santoni from Full House, Kelly Bundy from Married … With Children, Suzanne Sugarbaker on Designing Women and Sue Ann Nivens on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
Positive Cynicism – What passes for a bold stance on the Internet
When Aaron R. Davis went on Tumblr and posted “Kesha > Lady Gaga,” he had no idea he was walking into an Internet firestorm. Lady Gaga fans were quick to defend their favorite singer, but Davis can’t quite figure out is why. He simply can’t understand the need to prove someone else wrong for having a different opinion.
Hobo Radio 128 – Hitler, zombies and jorts
While this week’s podcast sadly does not have a discussion about a jort-wearing Zombie Hitler, it does tackle those three topics – Hitler, zombies and jorts – individually. Creeps on Craigslist, Sam Jackson’s inability to turn down movie roles and the old “Hey, look over there” trick also all find their way onto the show this week.
From the Vault – Getting to Know … Mary Roach
Mary Roach had already conquered death in Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers and Spook: Science Tackles the Afterlife, so in 2008 the bestselling author decided to take on sex in her book, Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex.
