Have a great Fourth of July weekend everyone.
And remember, if you are going to irresponsibly handle fireworks this weekend, make sure you videotape it so we can all laugh at your dumb ass on YouTube.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – In defense of Jason Bateman
Jason Bateman has been getting blasted by gossip blogs after an Apple Store employee pulled him out of line and allowed him to purchase his new iPhone ahead of everyone else. Joel Murphy comes to Bateman’s defense this week, arguing that we would all do the same thing in Bateman’s shoes and that it’s the store, and not the celebrity, that is to blame.
Outside of the In-Crowd – Regretful Adoration Theater: Fear
Courtney Enlow is on a mission to go back and revisit movies from her childhood that she at one time loved unconditionally. Some of these movies she continues to enjoy as guilty pleasures, others she now regrets ever having been smitten by. The third movie up for review in “Regretful Adoration Theater” is the Mark Wahlberg/Reese Witherspoon film Fear.
Positive Cynicism – Summer viewing
Summer television can often be a total wasteland. All of the regular shows have their season finales in May and June, so TV junkies are left desperately searching for something to give them their fix. This week, noted shut-in Aaron R. Davis shares his own summer viewing habits in an effort to help other lost souls find programming.
Hobo Radio 138 – Cue the fireworks
This Sunday night, most Americas will head outside to watch people blow shit up in honor of our victory over England 234 years ago. It’s a strange tradition, but one that all Americans seem to love. Joel Murphy and Lars do their best to make sense of this yearly spectacle and also pay tribute to America, albeit somewhat unenthusiastically.
