000 – An Exercise in Podcast Hubris (Rules and Regulations)

Play

It all begins here. Michelle Arf and Derek Godin of Dim the House Lights have decided to take on the Herculean task of plugging the Internet Movie Database’s Top 250 films (plus six wild cards) into a single elimination bracket and finding out which one is the real middlebrow champion. In this inaugural episode, they lay out the rules of the tournament, talk about the eccentricities of the list itself, and parse their own biases.

Welcome aboard the USS HomestarRErunner! We’re your captains Evan and David! In this first episode, we discuss the “First time here?” and character videos and give an of introduction to the characters. Also: early internet culture, Homestar’s continuing influence and weird Quiznos’ commercials.

Warning: Because this discussion covers the characters it also includes some of the problematic elements of some of them, and while there is no specific discussion of triggering subject matter a general CW for mentions of sexual predation and racism is still present.

Hello and welcome to the inaugural episode of your new favorite leftist politics podcast with a rotating cast of internet SJWs, Henry Kissinger Is Pokemon Going to Die! It’s not a threat, just a fact. Don’t worry, we’ll be constantly reassuring you of that at all times, because we don’t want to go to prison. For our first episode we’re mostly talking about predictions for 2018, how Doug Jones has no spine, and how all Republicans are absolutely, definitely lizard people. Please let us be on iTunes.
