Our friend and benefactor Mr. Matthew Haag joins Jon and Adam for a chat about things including, but not limited to, computer troubles, podcasting theory, new formats for the show, promise of future guests, the astonishing quizbot 5000, Jon’s secret past as a child radio hobbyist, how Tommy Lee Jones is a huge dick, Matt’s amazing cats, how the Chimney Sweeps from Mary Poppins are secret ninjas and many more topics.  Remember, Silky J will not choke a bitch, but he will discipline a ho with unpaid vacation days, or a loss of stock options.  Matt breaks a chair.  Remember skateboarders, your pain is my happiness.

You read it! Zach to the T to the B is in Tokyo Drift for some reason. He is also dating the sluttiest girl ever. Adam discusses his shucking and jiving life lessons.  Jon uncovers deep dark secrets of Santa Claus, (yes, again) and Adam fears that things have gone a bit too far off track. Turns out Tokyo Drift is actually pretty watchable, and Little Bow Wow is still a very little person. Jon suspects that he contracted that webster virus. Maybe he was bit by a feral Gary Coleman.

Our Fourth of July revelry has laid waste to the recording apartment.  Adam discusses the fineries of “Witchering” and how his new promotion is much more exciting than once thought.  Lake Waubonga will be Adam’s camping destination where he will be front captain of the S.S. paddleboat, doing water battle with lake witches.  Jon confuses Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sarah Jessica Parker and remembers the Flight of the Navigator as being a real dick.  Jon and Adam recount famous nightmares, and talk about how scary the grimace is.  Jon talks about his introduction to the dark world of clowning.  2 Words, Poop Steak. 3 Words Boulder Porta-potty Peeper  4 Words, Fake Japanese Pop Idols. 5 Words, Police Taser Middleton Machete Wielding Man.  Watch the documentary “Guys and Dolls”, or you might find yourself in a porta potty at a yoga festival in boulder.  Also, Mr. Peeper’s Penguins is a pretty messed up movie.

In an effort to make their games more extreme, many publishers have decided to add a male character yelling on the cover of their games. This simple decision increases the extreme quotient of your game by over 67%.  Additionally,  the person buying the game might be thinking that they are being yelled at by the cover.  This will invoke memories of other times they have been yelled at. Most of the time those memories will reignite deep seeded family issues and make the viewer uncomfortable.  To fix this situation, the viewer will often purchase the game to stop the yelling.  If the user has a clean family past, this yelling will just bring up more questions.  What is the person on the cover yelling about?  Are they angry that someone is trying to steal their soul with a photographic device?  Did they just get punched in a sensitive area right before the photo?  We have little hope for ever answering these questions, but I suspect the plot of “The Mystery of the Druids” ties in with this all somehow.

Jon, Adam and Lance decide to sit down and watch all of the Fast and the Furious movies.  It turns out that Lance hates generic cuban villians. We reminisce as a dude totally gets destroyed by a semi truck out of nowhere.  The movie turns out to be one big pal-ing around fest where everybody loves each other and nobody dies, except for poor semi truck guy.  Paul Walker apparently is the great white hope in the race driving race wars that apparently occur.  In his sickness Lance decides to watch “Spanglish”, and he nearly takes a turn for the worse.  The gang also discusses how to make an awesome popcorn action movie, and how terrible the Die Hard trilogy game on PS1 is.  Listen in!
