I hope you all had a great Fourth of July weekend.
Mine should have gone well, but it ended up being a complete disaster. I had plans to go to a cookout and then to hit the beach, which seemed like a simple enough weekend. But I got kicked out of the cookout because I “wasn’t invited” and then I get kicked off the beach because the lifeguard said my red, white and blue speedo was “scaring children.” What an unpatriotic jerk.
Next year, I’m spending my Fourth of July in Canada.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – Why Lindsay Lohan’s impending jail time is great for her career
Lindsay Lohan is going to have a tough time finding the bright side to her impending jail time. Luckily, Joel Murphy is here to help.

Positive Cynicism – With great power comes weak movies
Sony Pictures has decided to go full speed ahead with a Spider-man reboot, even though Sam Raimi’s films are only three years old.

Hobo Radio 139 – Now with more twang
Lars is M.I.A., so Joel Murphy is joined by Chris Kirkman, who does his best to class up the joint this week. The two have a lot to discuss, including M. Night Shyamalan’s fall from grace, Terry O’Quinn and Michael Emerson’s Emmy prospects and the latest developments down at the Department of Defense’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
