What we're watching this weekend: Dispatches from podcast land

You may be wondering why you can no longer access "BGH Classics" - where we sold back episodes of the show for 99 cents - on the site any more. Well, we caught wind that the service we were using was not going to be available for much longer, so our fancy business guy Jon had to take time to do some research and find a new outlet to make that stuff available. He did eventually find one, but we're still in the process of re-uploading and organizing everything. My guess is in the next week or two, BGH Classics will be made available to the masses once again.

Snapshots: "Piranha 3DD" still happening

Remind me how many D's this movie has again?

Horror Headlines: Thursday, April 12th, 2011

I bought my first grill yesterday and now officially declared myself a man at the ripe age of 34. This weekend I look forward to burning my first house down.

No one likes the French. Nobody. So news that French actress Lizzie Brochere has joined the cast of season 2 of "American Horror Story" is bitter sweet. Bitter, because she's French and sweet because... I can't really think of anything actually. Croissants are pretty good. Let's go with that.

Woman hate Angelina Jolie because she seems like a jerk and she broke up Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, and while some won't admit it every man on earth loves her for the same reason. I'm done lying! So the world will love/hate the news that she's in talks to play a small role in the upcoming Ridley Scott film "The Counselor". The film is about a big time lawyer who tries his hand at the drug game with not so sexy results. Have you seen her tattoos? She's probably a lot more fun than Aniston. You can't argue science.

Robert Kirkman, the guy who created the magical comic book "The Walking Dead" has landed himself another AMC show titled "Thief of Thieves". Based on the comic of the same name the story focuses on a master thief who trying to reconnect with his estranged wife and son while trying to keep his life legit. That's the first season. In the second season not much happens and everyone on the internet bitches about it. Just a guess.

Uwe Boll has set his eyes on freedom with his next project. The film is called "Bailout" and will set its sights on how the economic crisis has affected the average American family. I think this sounds great. mostly because that guy could kick my ass in a boxing match.

In Real People News: 

Ah it's the age of social media. Why even your local killer is taking to the Faceblogs to update his status after he shoots his own mother to death. I assume his next check-in was from jail.

I got 89 bags of weed tied to my dick and a bitch aint one. Wait no, that makes no sense.

Album Review: Jeff Loomis - Plains Of Oblivion

Being in a band that managed to establish a legacy is a blessing for a musician, and it can also be a curse. Once public opinion makes a verdict on your abilities, and your best works, it becomes nearly impossible for anyone to overcome those perceptions and establish a new reality. For Jeff Loomis, who for the last twenty years has been synonymous with Nevermore, everything he accomplishes both with this album and in the future will be seen through the filter of his previous band. Nevermore's breakup seemed inevitable.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday, April 10th, 2011

Wallace Langham always seems sassy to me so that makes him a perfect fit to play the roll of Saul Bass in the upcoming film "Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of 'Psycho.'" I'm not going to tell you what the movie is about because that title might be the most direct thing I've ever read. I also have no idea with Saul Bass was "sassy" in real life but I like to think he was.

Let me get this on paper right now. If the end of the world comes and it looks like I might make it out alive but I'll have to live with Seth Rogan, I want you to just shoot me right in the face. Don't ask me if I really mean it, don't even think about it. Just pull the trigger. Even if Aziz Ansari is there, who's just been added to the cast of "The Apocalypse", an end of the world comedy which stars Ro-Gan. See how I made that happen? But seriously. Shoot me.

Oren Peli and Jason Blum, the producers behind "Paranormal Activity" are currently working on an untitled "Latino-themed" supernatural thriller. Now before we go any further let me point out that my wife is Puerto Rican so nothing I say can be considered racist.The story will focus on a pack of haunted tacos that terrorize a family of migrant workers. They must use the power of salsa to expel the demons and save their home/hut. I'm kidding of course, no details on the film have been released.

"Ender’s Game", the much anticipated adaptation of Orson Scott Card's beloved science fiction novel has had its release date officially pushed to November 1, 2013. I have no idea what the book is about but it sounds like there's tiny little fighter pilots so that's adorable.

In Real People News: 

Here's a story about a California guy who's in a wheelchair but still found a way to sexually assault a chihuahua. Handy-capable indeed.

When a shoplifting attempt goes wrong you have to make some quick decisions. Like this woman in Louisiana who had to choose between the items she was stealing or her baby. She chose the items she was lifting for the record. And for the record the items she was stealing were from a baby store. Which seems really stupid now.
