Step right up boys and girls, step right up! Prepare to be astounded and amazed, excited and entertained, overwhelmed and occupied by the freakish sights that only your ears can behold!  That’s right folks, were going uncaged this week, so there’s no rules, no order, and no stopping the freakshow geek show!  Join us this week as we discuss a little bit of this, a little bit of that, and a whole bunch of other stuff!  Open up your pocket books, get in tune with your psychic side, and kiss the bearded lady good-bye as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage.

(01:51) – Karen leads us off with a talk about the awesomely successful Veronica Mars Movie Kickstarter (you’re welcome) and Matt digs a deep, deep hole.  We also pontificate on the possibilities of other crowd-funded TV Shows/Movies and Kristen Bell’s career.

(16:10) – The Boy Scouts love “Gaming” but still hate “Gay-ming,” so we think up a much better alternative.  Also Matt is and watched Wreck-it Ralph and we discuss the epic mediocrity of OZ: The Great and Powerful.  Plus, flying animals.

  1. I’ve seen pictures of that place in the past. It’s totally creepy, but great visual inspiration for gaming. I’m making a note of that for future adventures. Thanks for listening!

  2. The girlfriend is happy to hear you guys didn’t enjoy OZ either.

    On a similar note, I’m very happy that I didn’t go with her to see it.

  3. Her review of the movie goes live on the site tomorrow morning, or this afternoon for you future-people in Australia.

  4. That’s great news, she’ll be very happy to hear that! Then everyone can dump on the movie together!

    If only we were far enough into the future to have hoverboards. Unfortunately we have to wait like the rest of the world.

  5. I saw Oz last weekend, and I enjoyed it, mostly. It seemed to me that James Franco was doing his best Jay Baruchel impression the whole time, but whatever. The ONE thing that really soured the third act was Mila Kunis. It’s especially disappointing because I always enjoy Mila Kunis (I mean, look at her), but she was not the correct casting choice at all. She just couldn’t play that part well, andit really brought the movie down.
