087-Nicolas Cage? part I

Play

Once in a lifetime there is someone who is so perplexing in their field that they become more. They transcend their stardom. Nicolas Cage has been in over eighty movies portraying romantics, law enforcers, con men, superheros and psychopaths. He has spawned countless memes due to his sometimes bizarre acting choices. There have been TV episodes based wholly off of whether he is a great or terrible actor. Yet you cannot deny that he is an Oscar winning thespian. We could not tackle this subject alone. It’s to big for two men. So we called in Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle from Hobo Trashcan to decide if Nicolas cage is a good actor or a great one.

041-Ouija?

Play

From spiritualism to demonic possession and creepy sleepovers the spirit board or talking board has a long and sorted past. Some use the Ouija to talk to angles, spirits or their own subconscious. Although the visual ascetics might change from board to board the components of yes, no, the alphabet and numbers as well as the sun and moon generally stay the same. The planchette or “little plank” is of course used to roam around the board at your fingertips giving you messages from beyond. So if you’re deciding if you should listen to this episode the Ouija points to “Yes”.
