Episode #280 – Peppermint

It’s MAX FUN DRIVE time, everyone! That means we’re putting out an extra episode on a week we’d normally take off and drink pina coladas or something. Instead we watched the Jennifer Garner revenge fantasy Peppermint, and hoo boy is it racist! Meanwhile, Elliott reveals his Mandela effect defense attorney strategy, Stuart gets lost in his thoughts, and YOU’RE NOT DAN’S DAD, JESSE.

  2. Wildride says:

    The quintessential “Take care of him” gag is from Rustler’s Rhapsody where the main bad guy has to first explain the normal crime usage of the phrase and then later that it doesn’t mean the same thing when he’s referring to his own daughter.

    Not to be a bear but the embed and the mp3 link are missing from this post! Always nice to see a lorum ipsum in the wild though.

    Love the podcast, always happy to see a new episode!

  4. Tegan says:

    Pssst… the download link points to the Dark Tower live episode.

  5. Jeff Smith says:

    There’s alot of tension in this episode, and not the fun “sexual tension” like in my Flophouse fan-fiction…

  6. Gerald Fnord says:

    Mechanics who own their own shops usually do indeed do very well; people who work for them make what almost any blue-collar worker who has a boss makes: just enough to keep them from leaving, which can be pretty low, especially (in this case) if the mechanic has no formal certifications.

    Elliot, Thank you for bringing up I, Claudius. It’s a personal favorite! You need to see the BBC/PBS 1970s version. Patrick Stewart and John Hurt are awesome.

  9. Dave says:

    M4A? What happened to mp3?

  10. Gerald Fnord says:

    As horrible as judging each other by appearances is, I’d say that it’s a secondary or tertiary horror.

    The _ultimate_ body horror is that we are each made of matter arranged in a system which is subject to innumerable possible insults and eventually will deteriorate until we aren’t around as conscious beings.

    Beyond survival, much of what we do is devoted either to forgetting this or telling ourselves that this weren’t so or that this were not the most important thing about ourselves. That last would seem to me to be the best course open to an honest adult: ‘important’ can be what we decide it to be.
