Those episodes really were simply delightful. I found myself with just a constant big goofy grin between laughs..

For this upcoming week, the reboot of Big Grande’s Teacher’s Lounge is the alpha and omega of current improv comedy podcasting.

I appreciated all that, and how people are people after all, but I started to sour on it when I realized the show would only ever bring them to the brink of hard times but would never follow through.

Each season I begged for the obnoxious Belgian to arrive so the locked-room murder mystery could start, but it never, ever did. We almost got there with Bates, but not quite. Make due with Gosford Park until Knives Out, I guess.

I wonder what the hold up is on the The Stand do-over. The post-apoc trend is flagging already, and it may be fully done and rusted out by the time they get it done.

Here’s my take: he combines dinner party conversational energy, theatre kid dorkiness, back-of-the-classroom snark, and charm. I’ll concede that a lot of his stuff feels less like Entertainment and more like hanging out with a clever, entertaining friend, which is why podcasting has worked out better for him than

Putting his prolific guesting abilities aside, I will forever rep for the Thrilling Adventure Hour, Dead Authors, Superego, Spontaneanation and the Pod F. Tompkast. PFT’s retired more creative and influential podcasts than most hosts can even pitch.

I’m a little bit in this situation myself—to me, BDSM and complicated role-play feels ritualistic and performative in a way that removes the intimacy and kills my own libido. I can’t make a real effort and be turned on at the same time. I’ve told my partner that at any given time she can have the performance or she

The current AV Club house style is a weak attempt at Sean Faux’Neal, and you can really taste the faux.

Probably just that he’s so straight white male, which is boring now. Between LA Confidential, Gladiator, and Master & Commander odds are he’s in, like, 25% of white dudes’ Favorite Movie Of All Time. That’s a HUGE over-saturation of the Patient Girlfriend demographic.
