  • New Flying Lotus (Flamagra) is out and it’s a good listen. He’s got an interesting range of guests on it including Anderson Paak, David Lynch, Shabazz Palaces, and Solange.
  • For what it’s worth this guy on Twitter is recapping each episode and has gotten the attention of the show runner. He was born and raised in the Soviet Union and brings that perspective to his recaps and he’s amazed at the authenticity that an Ameri…
  • Yeah the squeaky toy is amazing in the bullet removal scene. Had me in tears.
  • Ace Ventura - Thought it was hilarious as a ten-year old. Haven’t seen it in many years, but I’m sure it has aged very poorly. Even if I’m still fond of some quotes and scenes in my memory. I agree on American Beauty mentioned above, but it turned …
  • Maybe it’s because I just listened to a podcast about it, but the Rebekah Del Rio scene in Muholland Dr. is the first one that pops to mind.
  • Game Night. Great cast. I thought it was funny. 
  • Really digging the new Tyler the Creator album, IGOR
  •    I’ve consulted on a video game out of Japan.   I know people only care about GOT at the moment but I was thrilled to see this line. There were rumors recently that he was working on a game with FROM Software (Dark Souls, Bloodborne, Sekiro…
  • I thought it was fine. Had there not been so many shortcuts and forcing characters and plots into positions they wanted them in for the end game in these past few seasons, then I think it would have worked like gang busters for me. As it is, though…
  • One thing I think the episode did really well was spending as much time as it did on the small folk of King’s Landing and putting a face to the horror on display. It was sickening to watch at times, but necessary I think. It’s all too easy in big b…
  • I thought the episode looked incredible for the most part and I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. Bur also was incredibly uncomfortable with the burning of King’s Landing (how I was intended to feel for sure) And lots of characters, themes…
  • I’ve been hearing Craig Mazin talk about this show (he’s the writer/creator of it) on his podcast for ages, and am so glad it’s coming out. Just have to wait for it to hit Amazon Prime Japan. Which could still be 6 months or more away.
  • Not adding anything substantive to the conversation. Just came to say this was my kind of episode. While it is a bit frustrating that narrative short cuts were taken to get everyone in the same space, which potentially cheapens some of the exchange…
  • This week’s episode “Treasure of the Sun” rivals “A Prayer for Mad Sweeney” as my favorite of the series. And both are centered on Sweeney. 
  • Murderbear said: FINALLY watched Spider-Man Into The Spider-Verse. Holy shit it's amazing! I also just saw Spider-verse and I loved it too! Absolutely lived up to the hype. A rare occurrence.
  • Haha! The amount of time I spent trying to jump in Blighttown for some of those items... Hope you enjoy Sekiro as much I as I am. I’m really starting to get the hang of it.
  • @asmallcat Yeah Dark Souls is my favorite game of all time and I love the whole series as well as Bloodborne. And even after having played the hell out of those games, this game is a struggle. But for me that’s not a bad thing. The mechanics of co…
  • I’m all about Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice at the moment. I’m bad at it and it’s really freakin’ hard but I’m loving it. Just wish I had more time right now to really dig into it and get the mechanics down. It’s definitely not for everyone, but it’s so…
  • Yeah Neil Gaiman just tweeted about it. Hopefully this one sticks. https://twitter.com/neilhimself/status/1106681997013995520?s=21
  • Yeah that was a really enjoyable podcast. So glad they are covering the show again! I really hope the show maintains at least this quality, despite all the trouble behind the scenes. I love the source material and really want it to succeed.
  • I largely enjoyed the premiere. The House on the Rock was great. I’d only ever read about it in the book but hadn’t seen any visuals. That place is insane. Banter was really good too. I’m really hoping that as things ramp up we still get some of th…
  • Finally caught up with Lady Bird. I loved it.
  • The Expanse Season 3 finally came to Japan on Prime. I wasn’t gonna binge it as I’m also watching Mrs. Maisel and The Deuce. So I thought I’d just rotate between the three. But I got so hooked on Season 3 I just powered through. Definitely my favori…
  • I’m also primarily a single player guy, partly because of time limitations due to kids and partly because I kind of suck at competitive multiplayer games. But I almost gave Apex Legends a try because I’ve heard it handles playing with strangers pre…
  • Adding on to the idea of Focus, one thing that I love about BM is that they don’t waste time with small talk at the beginning. I only have a limited amount of time and a lot of podcasts To cram in, so I hate it when podcast hosts take a while to get…
  • I got one in Japan a couple years back, but I think that was when you only got one if you sent one so they must have used the return address on the card I sent. Last year I didn’t get one and this year, it went to my billing address, which is in t…
  • I’ve been digging the new James Blake album. And have become kind of obsessed with one song in particular, “What’s the Catch” featuring Andre 3000. I don’t know how many times I’ve played this song in the past few days.  https://open.spotify.com/tr…
  • I’ve been playing a lot of OnRush, because of my son. It was a free PSN game a few months back and my son can’t get enough. He’s too young to actually play it but he’s totally hooked on having me play it, choosing all the vehicles and events we do. …
