What the hell did Popcorn say that was nuke worthy?

Subscribed, sucka.

I hooked up my PS2 last month and still get my ass beat by that first colossus.

That's terrible news, Lux. I'd hug you if I could.

Hey team, I have a coworker who's been trying to remember a movie with a funny effect in it. It sounds like an old, cheap horror movie where someone falls from really high up, resulting in their arm flying off as they hit the ground. Ring any bells?

MeatballSubUber is a popular method of transportation in Los Angeles.

Well, yeah, but the show name drops Uber in excess. It basically uses Uber in place of the word "car". I wonder if its product placement.

Seriously, they name drop Uber ever 10 minutes or so. The more I notice, the more prominent it seems to become, even finding its way into the plot when one of the main characters calls her dad's current business plan out for being a blatant Uber ripoff.

I had never ridden an Uber up until a couple months ago during a trip to New York City. I must say, it was a convenient way to get around.

TeamCanadaTPB pod returned this week, the 3 of them in character, no mention of Dunsworth/Lahey.
My best guess is they held the show must go on & I'd bet they would simply say Dunsworth would be telling them to f'n get on with it & just live life back at'er.
2 weeks off for them was a long time so I'm sure they laid out considerations respectfully.

Thanks, man. Good to know. I had stopped checking. The fact that they just dropped silent for two weeks says a lot in itself.

I've been rewatching the fifth season over the last few days and have always seen it as a peak of the show, but now that I'm running through six out of habit, it could have been an appropriate ending. It's a pretty chill season with an oddly upbeat finale.

It's odd to imagine that Dunsworth is gone while watching them. I enjoyed seeing his posts on Instagram. Nothing like a random Lahey liquor tip on a Friday night.

And I think I was wrong about the Lahey/Randy podcast ending long ago. They may have rebranded it or something, but one of the somewhat recent TPB podcasts features Randy and Lahey promoting their podcast and tour.

Seasons 6 & 7 are my go to's, the ones wrapped around the first movie. S7 especially because it had my favourite arc with the Canada-US model train scheme + Conky's return to glory. Xmas special is on my yearly Dec dvd playlist as well, an excellent 'episode'.


Hell yeah! Sebastian Bach killed it in Season 7, and The Christmas special is favorite of mine, too. It's the only Trailer Park Boys that I actually own since I wanted a DVD copy for my X-Mas collection. I'm also really fond of Say Goodnight to the Bad Guys. I think the specials can sometimes be stronger than the movies since they don't feel the need to go "big".

Damn straight! But, is Ash really a Halloween icon? He definitely deserves to be. Evil Dead II is my Halloween movie of choice.

Who is your favorite Halloween horror icon? I narrowed the title down to the obvious four, but the likes of Chucky, Pinhead & Ghostface seem to be Halloween poster-children as well, and I'm sure I've forgotten a few.

Freddy's probably my favorite, as his franchise has the best batting average, and he's not a stunted man-child like the other three, giving him the most personality.

In terms of actually being scary I say Leatherface takes the crown. Leatherface just sees his victims as cattle, so the emotional distance is terrifying. He doesn't seem like someone you could trick or reason with. I think the fact that he's not supernatural makes him creepier than the rest. It's hard to beat the atmosphere of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which is definitely one of my favorite horror movies.

I've never been a big fan of Michael Meyers. Halloween has always seemed dull and repetitive to me.

I've just been getting into the Friday the 13th series this October, so the jury is still out on Jason. I have enjoyed the pace at which he develops; from being a boy in the first movie, to a hermit in the next, then the iconic Jason everyone knows in the third.

I'm not a fan of Chucky, either. I never thought he was particularly scary of funny.

I've been cleaning up my own channels and spending more time on YouTube, but only have a small handful of subscriptions that actually seem to post regularly. I've become a pretty big Cinemassacre fan, but otherwise not sure where to find "the good stuff". Any recommendations?

I'm always down to check out any of your personal channels as well. I know that MKS has one, as well as Crow T. Robot from OT.

There's always the excessive Angry Video Game Nerd review of the original Ninja Turtles game that put him on the map.

"Cowabunga... Cow-a-FUCKING PIECE OF DOGSHIT! This game is diarrhea coming out of my dick! This game is as appealing as a fucking ooze-infested dirty fucking sewer rat shit! I've had more fun playing with dog turds! Shredder's my ass and Splinter's my balls, this game is an inside-out asshole regurgitated putrid anal fecal matter! I'd rather fucking yank all the hairs out of my scrotum! I'd rather drink diarrhea vomited out of a buffalo's anus! It sucking fucks, it fucking sucks, IT FUCKING BLOWS, IT'S A PIECE OF SHIT... and I don't like it."

If we conjure up enough insults and angry threads the problem will undoubtedly correct itself.

I cared about things back in 2007, so this should be a breeze.

1. Hot Fuzz
2. No Country for Old Men
3. Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
4. Planet Terror
5. Knocked Up
6. There Will Be Blood
7. Superbad
8. Ratatouille
9. Death Proof
10. Hostel: Part II

I should have guessed that a bunch of RT's resident Canadians would show up to pay their respects.

TC, I've been wondering about next week's podcast myself. I doubt they're looking forward to it. As for Randy and Lahey's podcast, I think it might have fizzled out a while back. The app I use lists their newest episode as being forty weeks old. I only listened to a few episodes and don't think their podcast was nearly as fun and was honestly a little unnerving. The gif you chose is one of my favorite drunken Lahey moments; "I'm mowin' the air Rand, I'm mowin' the air!"

I was sad to hear that John Dunsworth, known best for his portrayal of Sunnyvale's drunken trailer park supervisor, died last night at 71. The family has been pretty private with the details, but he supposedly passed peacefully.

The show is currently in production of its 12th season. I don't see how it could go on without him, and I'm sad for his family & friends. For any who didn't know, Sarah of Trailer Park Boys is played by his actual daughter, Sarah Dunsworth.

I might have to make a little drinky poo in his honor tonight. He will be missed.

As fanboyish as I can be about my Star Wars, I'm worried about the direction of the big saga movies. The final verdict for The Force Awakens hinges on The Last Jedi, it's just too ambiguous to stand on its own. This new trailer reinforces my fear that they've made Luke cowardly and weak. To top off my skepticism, Abrams is back in the director's chair for the final installment.

On the optimistic side, the visuals look awesome. I was surprised at how nice the detail in Snoke's face looks. Oh, and it's nice that Phasma gets to actually do something, she was such a strange, useless character in The Force Awakens.

TeamCanadaWhat about bad luck? One of Vader's droids locating Luke & the Hoth rebels. Darth Vader surviving the Death Star battle 1.0. Luke & Leia's mother dying at birth. Alderaan being destroyed. Millennium Falcon never quite functioning at 100%.

This isn't particularly on topic, but I've had it in my head for a while that Palpatine killed Padme, maybe even gave Anakin those nightmares. It makes an otherwise terrible plot point a lot stronger. Know what you call a woman who just "loses the will to live" during childbirth? A shitty mom.

The beauty of the whole force angle is that any coincidence in Star Wars can be chocked up to fate.

That is a beauty that robs us of tension, leaves us with a theodicy, and invites the most needless and ridiculous of "explanations." Case and point, the mystery of R5's blown motivator.

I didn't say it couldn't be abused. Do you just disregard the entire fantasy genre?
