So, in honor of Friday the 13th, we’ve decided to start your day off in the absolute worst way possible by throwing another episode out into the airwaves to go and mess things all up. Join your hosts Matt and Robert this week as they poorly discuss awesome movies, annoying technology, and gastrointestinal distress, among other random bits of uselessness. Don’t blame us, because we warn you every week, but this one may actually hurt your ears a little, so, pack them full of cotton and get ready for 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!
It seems like not that long ago, the characters on our favorite TV shows were untouchable. Sure, most have been far from infallible, some not even remotely likable, but they definitely seemed to be somewhat immortal. Then, one day, writers go this great idea that killing important characters in dramatic fashion wasn’t just good entertainment, but good story-telling, so the fans could cray all they wanted, because, you know… ratings! Join us this week as we discuss some (but definitely not all) of the TV show character deaths that have made a lasting impact on us, the viewers. Grab you box of tissues, play some sad background music, and maybe even get some confetti poppers ready as we talk TV character deaths on a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
We all love an original, right? Be it a movie, a TV show, a book or a game, there is nothing quite like the Real McCoy. The OG. The Numba One Stunna… or something… But, what happens if an original is remade or rebooted? What is it’s (probably) worse? What if it’s (surprisingly) better? Should it have even been done? Join us this week as we tackle these hard-hitting, earth-shattering, humanity influencing questions while looking at the entertainment industry’s remake obsession. Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, and hide those bootleg cable movie VHS’s, because it’s all about to get REMADE UP IN HERE, on this weeks new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
