About five minutes after I started watching “Hamilton” on Disney Plus, I started wondering how long it’d take Weird Al to get a music video together for “The Hamilton Polka”.
Turns out the answer was two days, and it was worth every second of the wait.
Come for the 4:45 seconds of awesomeness that will get your mind off some of the nightmare that is everyday life, stay for Martin Short wearing a “Straight Outta Quarantine” shirt.
eD! and Jeff discuss Jeff’s luxurious beard, Standing Up, Falling Down, and a new smartphone case eD! can’t stop thinking about.
Yes, the writer of the movie is my cousin, but that doesn’t mean it’s not an excellent movie, and doesn’t deserve the love we heap upon it.
eD! and Jeff discuss Valentine adventures, the price of trumpets, terrible Twitter takes, and things that could tank Jeff’s theoretical political campaign!
This episode also features the third-dumbest question ever asked on the podcast, which I more or less absolutely loved. You really should give it a listen.
eD! and Jeff talk about new dinosaurs, the Oscars, and being so very old oh man it’s terrible.
I really liked this episode, and I hope you do, too. If not, as always, Blame Dave©.
After spending two years engaged in a legal battle with a coal executive who was less-than-enthused with a giant squirrel telling him to “eat shit”, John Oliver finally shares the details of what happened, explains SLAPP lawsuits, and ends the segment in a way that ensured that I’d have to post it.
I had no choice, people.
eD! and Jeff talk about Joker.
And spoil every last thing in it.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you and tweet at us angrily later.
As I mention in the episode, I love all sorts of movies — I’m the person you’ll find at a showing of Gone with the Wind and the sort of weirdo who pre-ordered Fast and Furious Presents: Hobbs and Shaw about 12 seconds after I got out of the theater. I’m not going to dismiss a movie outright for just about any reason.
That said, Joker was terrible and I want the time I spent on it back, dammit.
The bit in the beginning where they consider Bill Gates less of a person and more of an idea is kinda weird, but the part where they make fun of Windows Phone really makes up for it.
