Welcome to November, where the Cubs have won the World Series and the world as we know it is about to end! Join your hosts Matt, Robert, and The David as they chit-chat about what’s going down in their lives, relentlessly mock one another, and pay homage to the best-worst video game ever. Lock yourself down in your own personal bunker, because next week we’re gonna burn! It’s a brand new episode of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
First off, our apologies. No, really. Not the regular “apologies” we give you every week for producing our amazingly good/bad podcast, but for real and for true, sorry. Things were going great (depending which side of the fence you sit on) and then Matt had to go and bring it down. What a dick! Anyways, now that’s out of the way, it’s on with the show! From low-brow theology and anointed body parts to Wondercon and continuity issues, this show has enough to rub everyone the right and wrong way, simultaneously! Please note, we don’t fact check for shit, but that’s kind of the heart and soul of Useless Drivel – A Podcast Without a Point!
“In their third year of podcasting, the Monkeys find themselves in a dark and foreboding plane of existence called Teh Internetz, surrounded by an army of soulless and viscous creatures called H8-ers. They must band together, with their loyal fanbase of MITC listeners in order to drive off all the non-believers (and Beliebers) in order to become true rulers of the Net!” Sounds like a badass movie, right!?! Join us this week as we go off the rails and uncaged! So, grab your crystal skulls, make a nemesis at the zoo, and just stop reading altogether as you prepare for a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
So, we totally are not talking about the upcoming J.J. Abrams Star Trek: Into Darkness film (yet), but we made you look. What we are talking about is whatever we damn well please, so if that means confusing you with a completely unrelated post pic, then BAM SUCKA! You just got “uncaged” all up in your face (and a little in your hair). Join us this week as we discuss everything from gaming and movies to random internet news and whatever else comes to mind. Holster those phasers, disarm the photon torpedoes, and for the love of the gods, Hollywood, admit that Benedict Cumberbatch is Khan already! It’s a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
We all know Hollywood is pretty much out of ideas. Nowadays, it seems like 90% of the movies hitting theaters is either some sort of remake or reboot, likely of something that has already been remade a couple times before. The awesome and epic story-tellers and directors (Looking at you, Nolan and Whedon) seem to finally be getting their chance to really shine, but studios are just too afraid to take a chance on those unique indie projects waiting in the wings, so it looks like we’re stuck with the likes of Michael Bay, Joel Schumacher, and Brett Ratner. Join us this week as we discuss the movies that we actually want to see remade (because it’s going to happen eventually), but only if someone with talent can do it! Wipe your classic memories away, burn up those original scripts, and whatever you do, don’t even think of Transformers as we discuss our remake picks on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
Okay, admit it. You’re just as guilty as the rest of us. When it comes to the geeky things you know and love, there isn’t anyone out there that is going to change your mind on why it influences you or why it’s important. Even if that means a little “nerd rage” from time to time, or a lot if you happen to be Matt. This week we’re talking about the proverbial Dark Side of geekdom, that evil place where your passion for something geeky almost destroys it’s awesomeness because you’re too hung up on your own fanaticism. So, sit back and enjoy as the battle lines are drawn in this epic nerd rage debate!
