On Shoes, Dark Chocolate, and Liquid Fire
I've yet to watch The Mandalorian series 3. It's very low on my list of priorities after "Dances with Tuskens". Actually, that was the Boba Fett thing, wasn't it? I don't know. I've lost track/interest. I did like Andor though.
Thanks for the Hot Ones clip! I was actually watching an episode of the sitcom 'Home Economics the other day and wondering what show was being parodied when a character appears in an interview where he has to keep eating lemons and other acidic things while trying to answer questions.
The sitcom 'Loot' on Apple TV did a sendup of this as well..
I had no idea you were a Detroit Lions fan. No worries, your team recovered when it drafted Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker. Now the other puzzling picks make more sense.
The Mandalorian’s latest season was enjoyable, but it appears to be building up to something bigger.
Sean Evans’ Hot Ones has become a must–watch institution. The questions are great but the reactions are priceless. Here’s a hilarious clip of guests screaming at Evans. You’re welcome. 🙂
Definitely need to check out Hot Ones...sounds a blast.
“most writers are filthy egotists at heart, and love nothing more than marinating in their own words”
What does it say about me that this is what I took from your roundup this week? It might be the truest thing on all the internet.
The scene you mention in Borat (with the naked wrestling) had me crying with laughter. I was still laughing ten minutes later, and had to put a hand over my own mouth as the film had long since moved on. Also, re: the bit where Borat asks the Texas gun shop owner what the best gun for killing Jews was, and with a completely straight face, the owner replies: "That'd be the 45." I have no words...
My 11 year old daughter and I call them Chocolate Bluubs. And we eat them while watching the Mandalorian. We are way behind. On Mando, not the consumption of the Brookside treat.
Watching: The new John Mulaney special.
Reading: Finally (finally!) finsihing S.W. Lauden's "Forbidden Beat." It's a killer read- I'm just far too easily distracted for my own good.
How much does Beaverton feature in Shoe Dog? It's my hometown, so I feel like I would spend a lot of time saying "actually" while reading. Same reason I haven't seen Air yet. There's enough pedantry in the world already, yaknow?
Listening: Autobahn's "Ecstasy of Ruin." It just dropped today. From the PR blurb: "...their characteristic blend of industrial post-punk intact, but under the bonnet they’re a much leaner, more focused machine. AUTOBAHN 3.0." Rad.
Those Brookside things sound good except for the fruit part, do they come in all chocolate version or barring that - with some peanut butter or ganache? At any rate, good on Mrs. Pierce for making sure you get in your daily dose of antioxidants!
Hot Ones is awesome, I have only ever seen the Zoe Kravitz one but she was really good, as you would expect. Very down to earth despite she was able to very casually say that Nicole Kidman sucks at bowling while Meryl Streep is a great bowler, "well Meryl is just good at EVERYTHING" :) Off to watch at least the Pedro Pascal one, thanks for the links!
