Monday is HoboTrashcan’s five-year anniversary.
I’ve been sworn to secrecy about what exactly is in store for all of you this coming week, but I think you all are really going to enjoy it. So make sure to stay tuned to the site for a few surprises.
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
Murphy’s Law – Scott Pilgrim vs. The Expendables
The Expendables may have won the battle at the box office, but is it a better film than Scott Pilgrim vs. The World? Joel Murphy has seen both films and he believes that even if you are looking for nothing more than a fun action movie, Scott Pilgrim is still the better choice.
Outside of the In-Crowd – Charlie Sheen might be the devil
This week, Courtney Enlow takes a look back at Charlie Sheen’s extensive list of transgressions, starting with his tumultuous relationship with Kelly Preston back in 1990. She then openly wonders why Sheen continues to be rewarded for his behavior and why people continue to watch his unfunny television show.
Positive Cynicism – Your complaints are hollow, Star Wars fans
Star Wars fans love complaining about George Lucas almost as much as they love the franchise itself. The constant tinkering and retooling of the original three films, the lackluster new trilogy and the constant barrage of merchandise are all sore subjects for fans of the series. This week, Aaron R. Davis attacks these fans for their constant complaining.
Hobo Radio 145 – Lars finally peaks
It’s not easy being Lars. For years, he has toiled away in mediocrity, overlooked and ignored by the world at large. When glancing at his pasty skin and boney arms, people typically don’t expect much from him. But this past week, like Matt Damon in Good Will Hunting, Lars saw an opportunity for greatness and he seized it. This week, he recounts that glorious moment.
From the Vault – One on One with Lisa Lackey
In a world of superheroes, it’s tough to be an average citizen stuck at home caring for your superbaby, especially when your mind reading husband is still harboring resentment over the fact that you slept with his partner. All that aside, Janice Parkman does her best to keep her chin up and roll with the punches.
Playing Mrs. Parkman on Heroes is Australian actor Lisa Lackey, who sat down with us last year to talk about working on Heroes, accidentally serenading David Lynch and how being Australian is nothing like what you’ve seen on TV. If you missed it then, enjoy it now.
