    I don’t know if this is a comment on where my mind is, but thrush is another word for a yeast infection.

    She a funny galy
    Should be on more often

    I’ll bet she’s a great pally
    she’s the cat’s mee-ow-ie
    That’s Hallie!

    Hallie, have her on the Flophouse
    she funny and rocks that house
    Yeah I rhymed house with house!

    Stuart: “So do you know this Merlin Mann guy?”

    a) the reason I and probably others found your wonderful show; and
    b) Elliott’s separated-at-birth brother, conceptually/artistically.

    The Flophouse and You Look Nice Today: a cut* above all others.


  5. Emily says:

    Do you all read the comments here or just Dan? Only ask since it seems like you often site comments from your Facebook group, but not so much from your own website.

    I’m not buying this true “creative differences” no bad feelings break-up à la Janeane Garofalo in Seinfeld. Mostly just stirring this up so that you’ll invite Al Madrigal back to as a guest host (pretty please).

    I have a bunch that nobody hosting ever watched “The Ward” directed by John Carpenter and starring Amber Heard (of “Paranoia” and “Drive Angry”), bunch of other random young actress including a Meryl Streep daughter and Jared Harris. It’s weird to listen to “The Quiet Ones” since Jared Harris’ role seems so similar to “The Ward” it’s almost freaky. I think “The Ward” is worth seeing. I’m probably not on the same wavelength at all times as the floppers (could really bare “Only God Forgives”), but “The Ward” was a bit slow. But since you all seemed so perplexed how come Jared Harris would make that movie, seems you’d be less so since it’s so close to “The Ward.”

    The real reason to recommend “The Ward” to the floppers is besides “The Quiet Ones,” it bares a striking similarity to a movie that FREQUENTLY sited on the Flop House. I don’t want to say which one since it would give away the main twist, but at the end of “The Ward” it’s so obvious which Flop House reference movie it’s ripping-off (although I don’t that movie created that twist either although unsure abut that). I’ll let “two people who had no business on television” (as Elliott describe them) talk it up and down. http://www.ebertpresents.com/movies/the-ward/videos/239

    I was waiting for Elliott to make the obvious “Max Fun Sydow” joke. Maybe next time.

  7. Tristan says:

    New listener!
    The mention of From Beyond made me wonder if any of the hosts have seen Banshee Chapter, a decent movie that references From Beyond. Check it out!

    Hallie is great; but four in a podcast Is a little over the comfortable limit. 3.5??
