I hope you all have something fun planned for this Friday the 13th.
I’m hanging out with my friend Jason. Apparently he wants to play hockey with me, since he just arrived here in a goalie mask. Not sure why he brought the machete though. I guess he couldn’t find a hockey stick.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – Oh boy, a Bakula-less Quantum Leap
For a Quantum Leap fan like Joel Murphy, the news that they are adapting the franchise into a movie was incredibly exciting … until he found out that, according to the powers that be, Scott Bakula is now too old to reprise his role as Dr. Sam Beckett. This week, Murphy argues that they should reconsider, since Bakula was the heart and soul of the show.
Outside of the In-Crowd – Regretful Adoration Theater: Grease 2
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 final movie up for review in “Regretful Adoration Theater” is Grease 2.
Positive Cynicism – An entire movie studio dedicated to flaccidity
When last we heard from Aaron R. Davis’ friend Harlan, he was arguing that all of Steven Spielberg’s movies are really about “conquering or mastering the penis.” This week, Harlan returns with his theory that all of Pixar’s films are truly about sexual inadequacy. Harlan explains his theory while Davis provides a voice of reason in this week’s column.
Hobo Radio 144 – This cookie tastes funny
A research team in Tokyo has created a way to change the taste of a cookie using virtual reality technology. While trying to discover a practical use for such an invention, Joel Murphy and Lars inadvertently stumble upon the greatest prank of all time. It’s an incredibly juvenile and unpleasant prank, but one they just can’t stop laughing about.
