HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US!!!! That’s right boys and girls, Monkey in the Cage Productions has just turned 3 years old! So, in order to celebrate this somewhat insignificant landmark in the vast wasteland of the internet, we have brought you, our faithful dozens of listeners, a brand new episode of Useless Drivel. Sure, we are probably your 14th or 15th choice when it comes to entertainment, but we’re going to keep on keeping on every week, at least until ebola knocks us off the internet. So, enjoy the Birthiversary festivities with a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
From the clothes we wear to the games we play, we are all individuals. Unique, delicate little flowers chock-full of free will, self-determination, and our own thoughts, dreams, and ideas. Well, ideally we could be bastions of individuality, free from influence, but then there’s that damn pop culture thing around every corner you turn! BAM, it’s on your TV! BANG, it’s in your closet! BOOM, it’s EVERYWHERE!!! Join us this week as the Monkeys are joined by their special guest (and Matt’s wife), Nikki Fuller, and put on their thinking caps to discuss why exactly pop culture is something to be paid attention to! So, turn on the dog channel, prepare for some disappointment, and curse the Hollywood casting calls as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
If you’ve ever listened to an episode of this show, then you know the Monkeys here at To-Ag studio are a nostalgic bunch, especially when it comes to gaming. Join us this week as we talk about our experiences in the gaming generation and our take on how games have evolved in the relatively small span of 30 years. So, hire yourself a running coach, check out your fat-lympic ranking, and bow before King Joffrey as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
No one ever grows up wanting to be the bad guy. It’s always “be nice” and “do good deeds” and “don’t break windows and set ant hills on fire,” but c’mon! Where’s the fun in all of that? More and more often, villains in all genres and media seem to be getting the spotlight, and sometimes even outshining their do-gooder counterparts in the process. Join us this week as we revisit and expand on our original conversation about the bad guys we love to hate. So butch up that resumé, practice your piloting skills, and stock up on eye patches and antibiotics as you settle in for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
We all have our favorite movies. We also all have out favorite TV shows. Every once in a while, we even get to see our favorite movies become TV shows, and then we get all excited and it’s like “ERMAHGERDIT’STHABESTTHINGEVER” and then FOX goes and cancels it…. Join us this week as we discuss some of the movies we feel should get a shot at their own air time on the “boob tube” (even a mini-series would be nice)! Get the doctor to fill out your paperwork, dry those Whovian tears, and definitely watch out for 8-year-olds as you kick back and listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
The summer blockbuster movie season has officially begun! Last week’s release of Iron Man 3 has already seen it reach the second highest opening take behind Avengers, but, as always, not everyone is impressed (such is the way of us geeks)! Join us this week as we discuss the movie, Robert Downey Jr., and all manner of geeky and Iron-y Man-y (yeah, it’s a thing) goodness. Charge up your Unibeam, polish up the Mark XLII Armor, and get ready for some holiday cheer as we talk Iron Man 3 on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
