It’s our end of year madness. While it may be a little pretentious of us to run a year-end episode after only 12 episodes, eh, so what. Some of what makes it into this one are things we never got to cover during previous episodes but which we proudly beat the hell out of now.

We wander everywhere, from music and films to current stories floating around the net. Safe to say, we earn the explicit tag with this show. (Chapter breaks below, a loose guide at best.) Tarantino to Star Trek to Brad Pitt to Facebook sibling revenge sex lists and beyond, the show goes there. We’ve also included links at the end here to anything we mentioned throughout the show.
(Few small clarifications first. In the discussion on Tarantino, even though movies about WWII now are good (Saving Private Ryan, Thin Red Line and Schindler's List), at the time, the acting in all films was melodramatic and sucked. We butchered Javier Bardem’s name and referred to Brad Pitt’s True romance character as Stoner when we meant Floyd.)
Lastly, and more importantly, thanks to all who have downloaded and listened to the show and/or who have given us coverage so far. We could’ve done it without you, but then, it would just be two angry people ranting into a mic... sans audience. And this, well, this would suck.
