Episode #76 – Third Annual Awards Floptacular

We’ve broken our curse, with our first Academy Awards-in-review show that doesn’t have terrible audio problems, although it has our usual staying-on-topic problems. Meanwhile Stuart reveals looking-glass Hitler’s nefarious plot, Elliott talks about previous winners of the Twix-sponsored Twixie Awards, and Dan unravels a riddle wrapped in an enigma wrapped in Inspector Gadget.

48:21 – 55:56 – Dan tells the greatest story in American letters. Suck it, Twain and Hemmingway.

Listen to Dan discuss the truly terrible young adult book City of Bones as a guest host on the Read it and Weep podcast. Also, it’s a two-parter, so he’ll be back next week, even grumpier from having to deal with a few hundred more pages of dreck.

    Great show, I agree with most of the opinions on The Oscars. Nice to see that Elliott will drop more F bombs when talking about something he didn’t hate watching.

    However, Dan’s story, and then the resulting reaction to it, is one of the best moments in the podcast’s history.

    btw: what if Penny met a dinosaur?

    Apparently, she would get tied up by the dinosaur.
