With my step-daughter’s birthday last weekend being the extraordinarily exorbitant affair that it was, I was, in the simplest of terms…pooped. Therefore, there was no podcast episode last week. Problem? Tough. This week, “Old People Talking About Cartoons,” Episode 030 of Marooners’ Talk, starts off with a group of almost-30-somethings (the titular “Old People”) discussing (the titular “Talking About”) the recent return (upcoming return at the time of the recording) of Cartoon Network’s Toonami programming block (the titular “Cartoons”). I say “starts off,” because for the FIRST TIME EVER IN A MAROONERS’ TALK PODCAST, we go off on multiple tangents that end up taking up nearly two-thirds of the extra long one-and-a-half hour episode.
Other topics of discussion included the George Clooney disaster-flick, Batman & Robin. Dinoshark and Sharktopus (the latter starring the brilliant Eric Roberts) had their moments in the sun, followed by The Avengers, The Dark Knight/The Dark Knight Rises, the usability of the current generation and upcoming generation of consoles, Diablo 3’s constantly online DRM, constantly online DRM in general, and the Star Wars films.
Thom thinks Ewoks are awesome. Thom is stupid.
Last, but most certainly not least, we mention a music video that I had shared with Thom and Adam just before the recording started. Let me just say…you’re welcome.
And, this video should not be played where sensitive ears can hear it. Just sayin’. Also, probably NSFW due to language.
