Happy Thanksgiving!

Screen Shot 2015-11-27 at 5.43.20 PMHey, guys and gals. This is Josh. I’m sorry that I didn’t get your new episode up this week. I’m even more sorry to Cody Clark and Brian Patchett for showing up to record and then failing to get the show edited in time. It is especially disappointing because Cody and I did a big Survivor recap and now we are an episode behind the show.

It was a crazy week for me, as usual, plus Thanksgiving, plus I had also committed to get the massive “Science of Star Wars” episode up by Thanksgiving for The Sci-Fi Podcast. My own interests took a backseat.

I am leaving the country in a few hours, but I will do my best to get this episode up in a timely manner. The good news is that I will be traveling with MSC co-host Aaron Thompson, so we can record our next few episodes very easily together.

Also, when we finally do get this up, it’s going to be a big one. If you haven’t seen Coherence, I’d recommend checking it out for our discussion. It’s an indie sic-fi mind-bender.

In the meantime, I’d recommend “The Science of Star Wars” ep we did over on The Sci Fi Podcast (if you are nerdy and/or science-minded and/or sci-curious), and I’d recommend everyone give a listen to our “Black Friday” episode over on Horror Movie Podcast. It’s one of my favorite podcast episodes I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a part of–seriously. Even if you don’t like horror, I think it’s a really fun conversation.

SURVIVORS, READY?!

30 Seasons of SurvivorOK, guys. This is it. One month until Survivor Season 31. The new season premieres September 23rd, 2015 and Cody Clark and I will be posting our rankings of the 30 preceding seasons before that day. That’s right, we’re ranking all 30 seasons of Survivor!

Now, it’s time to get serious about watching and ranking because we need your help!

Happy Groundhog Day!

Harold Ramis’ Groundhog Day is one of my favorite comedies of all time. The films stars Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell. Both give surprisingly soulful comic performances and are surrounded by a hilarious supporting cast including Stephen Tobolowsky, Chris Elliot, Angela Paton, Brian Doyle-Murray, and Rick Ducommun, among others. This classic film is a good reminder to live in the present for those of us who may tend toward living in the past by showing us “what you do with eternity” as we watch Bill Murray deal with the highs and lows of an eternal life that keeps skipping and starting over. This is the original Live, Die, Repeat.

MSC Groundhog Day BannerIf you haven’t seen it, what better opportunity to correct that grievous sin against the Gods of comedy than to watch it on it’s very namesake. If you have seen it, you know as well as I do that it is time to watch it again. Wondering if and where you can get it? According to canistream.it, Groundhog Day is streaming for a $2.99 digital rental on Google Play, Vudu, and YouTube.

This Groundhog Day, I thought it would be fun and somewhat fitting with the themes of the film to share with you this article, written about the film this time last year by Ryan Gilbey for The Guardian (credit to Rachel for the recommendation): Continue reading
