Rank #1: Episode Four Hundred Seven

Episode Four Hundred Seven, "Avengers Infinity War and What Happened to Josie."

This episode was recorded back in April. It's being released now because Chris tells a story to Frank and he has had a very difficult time getting to the point where he would want to share it with everyone. Take a listen and you can find out why. Also, we probably crap on Trump a bit as well.

Episode Four Hundred Six: "Impressive. Every word in that sentence was wrong."We are back with talk of "The Last Jedi."We could have talked for hours about the film and the storm that seems to have swirled up around it, but two factors stood in the way; Frank had to get to his job and I'm not happy with how my failing mixer made us sound. Ran it through some filters and EQ programs to make it sound as good as it can. Hopefully you all enjoy it.

Episode Four Hundred Three and Four Hundred Four: “Honestly, if you're given the choice between Armageddon or tea, you don't say 'what kind of tea?”  Posted minutes after the blind idiot candidate* took the Oath of Office, I present you with the final episodes of Are You Serious? recorded during the Omaba administration. I wanted to save these for a special occasion, and this is it. The first episode is the usual ranting and raving, while the second is all about how to overthrow a tyrannical, all white, all male, power hungry, genocidal Empire. It takes a special bunch of Rogues to do that job, just like it takes a special bunch to continue on with Are You Serious?.

*Refrence to Azathoth, the Blind Idiot God in H. P. Lovecraft's mythos.  Outside the ordered universe is that amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the center of all infinity—the boundless daemon sultan Azathoth, whose name no lips dare speak aloud, and who gnaws hungrily in inconceivable, unlighted chambers beyond time and space amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin monotonous whine of accursed flutes.

Music on this episode is from "The Art of War" and "The Dead Kennedys"

This week, we have a retraction. (Some U.S. history was discussed last week and it was incorrect.) We talk about what little new T.V. there was and we have a discussion about the reception that "Sucker Punch" has received. Since we switched hosting services to podbean, we talk a little about what that means for you, our listeners as well as the show. Chris talks about the absurdity of believing in just one supernatural being, but not others and Frank takes the opposite side. Some confusing stories from the Bible are discussed, like if God created the universe and all of reality just by saying so, why does he need mud or a rib to make people? The comfort and relative safety that religion brings versus truly living your life and experiencing everything you can is also touched on. We have some listener submitted stories that are always good for a laugh (or a head shake) and we stall long enough to get some "propaganda" feedback from Reverend Scott.In rebuttal to last week's campaign message from Scott, we have a very special rebuttal from some up and coming political commentators.

Music this week is from Chris Bricklemyer - "Are You Serious Theme V2"

Concrete Blonde - "Everybody Knows"

"White Rabbit," "I Want It All - We Will Rock You," and "Seek and Destroy"  - From the "Sucker Punch soundtrack

This week, we had to, due to necessity, split the show into two parts. This OF COURSE gave us the option to talk even longer than usual. After the second break, we switch out co-hosts! Anything to keep you guys on your toes! Also, the audio quality was sacrificed a tiny bit so you wouldn't have such a huge file to download.

We start off talking about the movie "Mystery Team," starring Donald Glover and a who's who of sit-com cameos. From there we go on to talk about a bunch of the regular entertainment topics that we normally do.

After that, we start in on some listener submitted stories. As always, it's infuriating and sad, with a little bit of funny. Sadly, not as much sandwich related violence this week. After the break we come back and go over some more news stories, most notably, how Michelle Bachmann  thinks that everyone should home school their kids. Dumb, or just totally out of touch? We explore all angles.

There is a lot more as well as listener feedback. I decided to wait on playing one audio clip that was sent to us. We didn't get to it in the first half and I really want Frank's reaction to it.

Music this week is from:

Chris Bricklemyer - "Are You Serious Theme V.2"

Def Leppard and Taylor Swift - "Photograph"

The Art of Noise - "Dragnet '88"

R.E.M. - "Finest Worksong"

Concrete Blonde - "Everybody Knows"

An Emotional Fish - "Celebrate"
