Eric is back as he and Bryan discuss Eric’s favorite topic: EGYPT! We apologize for any sound quality issues we had while recording.
With that start of November being All-Saint’s Day and El Dia de Los Muertos, Eric and Bryan felt obliged to follow-thru on listener feedback and devote an episode to Catholic saints. We hope you enjoy it!

I can remember a day when no one knew what the hell The Matrix was, but GODDAMN did we all really want to! There were cryptic ads on the radio in 1999 that ended with Morpheus’ line, “Unfortunately, no one can be told what The Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.” The television ads didn’t give too much away either, besides some short but sweet kung fu clips. So, there I was, a sixteen year old movie nerd, dying to know what kung fu, leather jackets, and Ted “Theodore” Logan all had to offer.
As the title suggests, this week Eric and Bryan discuss the history, etymology and culture evolution behind one of the most famous Halloween-related creatures ever: the vampire. Enjoy!

There is a shift happening, people! Can you feel it? We, as the general viewing audience, are seeing our film comedies transition from plain dick and fart jokes, to thought provoking, enlightening, and obscure films. We aren’t seeing people pretend they are zits; they are going into a discussion of why are they are getting zits and how that makes them feel! It’s a shift that is happening before our very eyes and it’s at times appalling! Who can we blame, good friends? Who is asking us to laugh and think!? Thy enemy’s name is Judd Apatow!
