GG Goes To The Movies #12: A “Halloween” Watch-Along

In what we hope will be a new, long-running segment for the podcast, Ted and I start our watch-along series with John Carpenter’s 1978 film “Halloween”. This episode works a lot like director commentary for a film. However, you can chose to listen to it either along with the film, or as stand-alone audio. We hope you enjoy this episode as much as we loved recording it!

Why Blink 182’s “Nine” Is The Album We Didn’t Know We Needed

In today’s world of music, in regards to its consumption, there’s not much need for purchasing physical copies of albums anymore. Between digital downloads, streaming services such as Spotify and Apple Music, and CD players being ripped out of every known device they once inhabited, you’re hard-pressed for a reason to purchase a CD or vinyl record. All that being said, I still pre-ordered Blink 182’s new album off Amazon, despite shelling out $10+ a month for Spotify.

Ep. #34 – A Fresh Start: Anticipating MCU’s Phase 4

Marvel’s Phase 4 will be the most ambitious yet. Not only is the MCU dealing with the regular film arsenal, such as origin stories and sequels, but it’s also tackling original content in episodic form for Disney+. Between everything coming to theaters and Disney’s new streaming service, there are upwards of 14 titles to look forward to.

Today, my wonderful wife Lindsay joins me once again, as we discuss all the Phase 4 content Kevin Feige unleashed during this year’s SDCC. Obviously us fans don’t have tons of MCU info yet, so most of what we talk about is pure speculation. Regardless, we hope you enjoy this episode!

GG Goes To The Movies: Misunderstood Masterpiece – Fight Club at 20

I am Jack’s oddly-timed podcast.

It’s been (almost) 20 years since director David Fincher transformed Chuck Palahniuk’s novel Fight Club into one of the most cult-classic status films of all time. There is much to be said about this movie, albeit not much that hasn’t been said already. And because of that, Ted and I are choosing to focusing on this topic, of Fight Club being a misunderstood masterpiece.

Since its debut in 1999, Fight Club’s message (or messages) has/have been misconstrued by a LOT of people, as well as bent to fit certain narratives and/or agendas. So we’re here to set the record straight. Well, as straight as we can. So grab a friend, some soap, and take a walk with us down Paper St.
