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!
Is this the best summer or what!?! We’ve got superheros, conventions, and even better, GIANT F***ING ROBOTS FIGHTING GIANT F***ING MONSTERS!!! That’s right geeks and geekettes, this week we’re talking awesome! Join us as we discuss the good, the better, and the best of Guillermo Del Toro’s latest tour de force, Pacific Rim! We ain’t got no time or room for haters, so initiate your neural handshakes, touch up those Kaiju tattoos, and get ready to cancel the apocalypse as you listen to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!
The world is getting smaller. We hear it so much nowadays that the statement has become totally cliché, but it’s the truth. While the immediately world is getting smaller because we are all inevitably getting fatter, it’s really the internet’s fault… and we couldn’t be happier! For those geeks out there who remember the pre-modern internet world, it wasn’t always so easy to get your geek on! Join us this week as we discuss the impact that this new-fangled internet fad (it’s a flash in the pan, trust us) has had on geeks and geekdom at large. Fire up that 26.6k modem, plug in that AOL free-trial CD you got in the mail, and whatever you do, don’t let anyone pick up that land-line as you sit back and plug-in to a brand new episode of Monkey in the Cage!*
