Have you guys seen Mother, Jugs & Speed? That's a great 70s Bill Cosby movie that co-stars Harvey Keitel, Raquel Welch, AND Larry Hagman.

Nice Alanis Morissette joke.

I'm loving the Topher Grace as Marty. Topher was always really good at the fake "Oh no!" hysterics and was very Michael J Fox-like. I can easily picture him with one hand on his hip and the other at his forehead.

Here's another option: John Cusack as Lane Meyer in Better Off Dead.

OR Tyler Labine's Reaper co-star, Brett Harrison.

I think Doc Brown should be played by...Reverend Jim from Taxi.

Graham, you'll be happy to know that public spitting is now outlawed in Calgary (even if it is on private property).

So is "standing or placing one's feet on" benches in a public place.

"You want to kick back, relax and put your feet up? Move to Quebec you relaxable motherfucker! For reals." - Mayor Dave Bronconnier

Spitting will run you $100, fully enjoying a bench: $50. Under this same bylaw, visibly carrying a knife in public is also 50 bucks.

next week, more discussion of this:

I am gonna have to second the Topher Grace nomination. I know you wanted to cast a nobody for this role but I think he is back to being a nobody. Ah shit wait didn't he curve bullets or something. Oh never mind that is a totally different person, James McAvoy. Well he kind of looks like Topher Grace. So my nomination is now James McAvoy. Deal with it bumpers.

Apparently spitting is a really big problem in China. In the Chinatown post office in NYC there are tons of signs saying, "no spitting".

I only like smaltzy holiday music that you can tell that the singer was five glasses of scotch deep before they even game him the mic.

Another quality show gents. Dave even managed to generate some level of suspense, who is this mystery guest who was also denied from seeing Robin Hood?
Oh and for the record they did curse in the movie, Christian Slater says, "fuck me he cleared it" my parents were not thrilled when my friend and I quoted that without knowing what it meant. That was the last arrow/merit/thievery genre film my parents let me see until I was 15.

-Holy shit, what was Sidney Poitier doing directing Ghost Dad?

-I'm not sure if I've ever seen Drummer Boy duet in full, I just can't get past the banter.

-Andy Williams was clearly making that song up as he goes.

-Michael Chiklis for Principal Strickland.

Anthony said...

"-Michael Chiklis for Principal Strickland."


Eric said...

Holy shit. I was just coming to say Chiklis for Strickland. Talk about spot-on.

And the website totally needs a dedicated stuntcasting forum.

Excellent show again, gents.

Olliver said...

I can see it now: A forum full of Overheards, one stuffed with Blank Or Blanks, and the gem of the board...153 pages dedicated to Poprocks Minute.

Moe G said...

Abe Vigoda for Doc Brown (as well as Statler from the Muppet Show)

Eric said...

By the way, I know Dave mentioned it once or twice, but I just got around to listening to his appearance on The Exploding Sandwich. It was pretty dang funny. His false hostility made me laugh quite a bit. Especially the last minute or so of the podcast when they just played a bunch of things Dave said that must have ended up on the cutting room floor.

Dave - How much was time actually recorded? There were quite a few gems that didn't make it.

dave said...

I think they cut out about 5 to 10 minutes. I don't really remember. It wasn't any huge chunks, just the occasional thing. And yeah, that last minute was great.

Kyle said...

I forgot to mention,

-Bill Cosby's last film appearance was in Fat Albert: The Motion Picture.

-Toby Keith's Beer For My Horses is also a song that was made into a movie.

-There's a big article about The Room in the latest Entertainment Weekly,,20246031,00.html

-Bill Nye the Science Guy for Doc Brown.

Anthony said...

Um I think you mean, Bill Die the Science Gay

There were FIVE Gambler movies.
