For some reason, Ned Bitters keeps giggling and offering me brownies today.
Every time I ask him why. he keeps asking me if I know what today is. And I tell him, “Yes, it’s Friday,” which only causes him to giggle even more.
What’s so funny about Friday, anyway?
Here’s what’s new on HoboTrashcan.com this week:
A Million Universes – Mea culpa
Nicole Alexandria has a few apologies she needs to get off her chest this week. “Fat Betty” from Mad Men, the TV show New Girl and Once Upon a Time all receive a rare mea culpa from Nicole.
Positive Cynicism – Geek hipsters
A recent list online entitled “Twenty Things Every Sci-Fi Nerd Should Own Physically and Emotionally” sends Aaron R. Davis into a rant about “geek hipsters” and the nature of fandom in this week’s column.
From the Vault – Murphy’s Law – Gary Cole is the best absentee father ever
Gary Cole has carved out quite a niche career playing absentee dads in both Taladega Nights and Chuck. He somehow is able to make both these character immensely likable while also making them complete sons of bitches. Joel Murphy gives Cole his props in this column.
Hobo Radio 220 – Remembering Dick Clark
Dick Clark, who was a legend in broadcasting, passed away this week. You’ve heard many comprehensive tributes to the man, who had an impressive career that spanned from American Bandstand to a variety of game shows to his New Year’s Rocking Eve, but you haven’t heard the dynamic duo weigh in on the man. And there’s no tribute like a Hobo Radio tribute.
But that’s not all Joel and Lars have to discuss this week. They also get a little morbid and discuss a few other beloved celebrities who are getting up there in age and, to lighten things up, they share their thoughts on some bizarre research into which color vaginas men prefer.
Can Joel and Lars handle doing a graceful tribute to Dick Clark? What’s the one thing Greg always does when the gang gets together? Do men prefer women with red vaginas? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
