Sarah and Sean welcome Dave back for a special episode about the film career of a man who helped define the youth of a generation… John Hughes.
One of these days, I’ll learn to contain my emotions when I find out that someone hasn’t heard of a particular movie. Today is not going to be that day however. My roommate has never heard of the Road movies, the classic Hollywood series of seven comedies released between 1940 and 1962 starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby, and Dorothy Lamour. And she’s not the first young whippersnapper I’ve met to not know these movies. Bob Hope was a staple in my formative years (which is why I’m a sucker for good puns), so let me lay down some education for you fine folks who may not know the silly, and politically incorrect, joy that are the Road pictures.
Good day, true believers! It is I, Sean Moriarty, here to continue our magical journey through the new frontier of beer and movie pairing. That’s right… beer pairing ain’t just for food anymore…
Pliny The Elder Imperial IPA with Seven
Pliny The Elder pours with a golden, honey-like hue with a light, fluffy head. It has an extremely floral nose with hints of pine. The first sip is very bitter like grapefruit, which then gives way to a sweet piney flavor mixed with pineapple, then has a crisp and bitter finish. This is one of the best beers in the known universe and I can never, ever get enough of it.
With Pope Benedict XVI’s historical resignation only a few days away, Eric, Bryan, and Nerds on Film co-host Sarah Ashley discuss all things Catholic, and especially Papal. Enjoy!
