Episode 114 : Scientological Apocalypse

Hidey-HO! One today’s show, Todd Steinberg joins Jon and Danielle for a round table of gelatinous jibbery-do. You may remember Mr. Steinberg for his animated pilot, Don’t Tell My Wife I’m a Cult Leader. Well, he fills us in on where his project is and asks us what our weapon of choice would be in the coming zombie apocalypse. Danielle shoots a video…wherein she is covered in icing and wears a sheep’s mask. Jon isn’t nearly as interesting this week, BUT he did co-host Bitches Be Trippin’ – and Ms. Lala Zigfried is interesting enough for the both of them.


This week’s hot topics include : TomKat calls it quits, a recent SCOTUS ruling has half of the U.S. shaking their fists, and a cop dies during a 3-way, and his widow wins a $3million lawsuit.

This week’s featured song is Bad for Me by Brendan Benson. It is off his album,What Kind of World.

Now THAT is a flower. On today’s show Jon takes a teen to school, Diane steals a dog, Paul’s tire blows out and Matt Rox (from Don’t Tell My Wife I’m a Cult Leader) is our special guest co-host. The quartet discuss vaginal performance art, Occupy Dallas, and Judaism/Catholicism. Jon also doodles:

Hot Topics include : A plane gets stuck in a ferris wheel, a Starbuck’s barista writes “Bitch” on a customer’s cup, broken penis syndrome is karma for cheating husbands, drunk man steals an ambulance and crashes, and (to update a previous story) a young boy who lost his father to a tragic accident throws the first pitch at a Rangers game.

The Dallas Video Festival ~ Check it Out

First, a little info via Dallas Video Fest website :

Dallas Video Fest will be Sept. 21-25, 2011 at the Angelika Film Center and The Texas Theatre in the city of Dallas. DVF is one of the oldest video-based festivals in the country and has a legacy that is both memorable and innovative. DVF has shown countless films in the past including the Emmy-award winning documentary “Freedom Riders.” It has showcased work from filmmakers such as Jim Sheridan and Michael Moore and had many notable guests including Monty Python’s Terry Gilliam, as well as television icon and actor Paul Reubens.

This year’s festival will be an event to remember with a wonderful selection of films, as well as, panel discussions, workshops and seminars. Our opening night presentation will be “Film Socialisme,” the new feature from legendary director and French New wave pioneer Jean-Luc Godard. We also will be showing the mixed martial arts documentary “Once I Was A Champion,” about the life and struggles of former UFC Champion Evan Tanner. This feature should be a delight for both fans of mixed martial arts and anyone who loves a great documentary. Another featured screening will be a documentary titled “Connected,” created by the founders of the Webby Awards. Two works from director Spike Jonze, a short titled “Mourir Auprès de Toi” and a vintage skating video of his creation, also will be featured at the festival this year. 

If you couldn’t make it to the Kessler Theater a few weeks back, head out to the Angelika Friday for a 10p.m. screening of Don’t Tell My Wife I’m A Cult Leader. Plus, this Sunday, our very own Danielle’s experimental short, La Route, will screen at noon. Hope to see you all there!

Umm, yeah, hi, on today’s show, Jon doesn’t know how to make Kool-Aid, Danielle’s work is in a gallery, and Jill wear’s flowers in her hair. Hot Topics include Dancing with the Stars, a man arrested for having sex with neighbors pool raft, virgins get in free to a festival in China, a Canadian pot-brownie mix-up leads to a barrel of laughs, and prosecutors seek new trial in the killing of Lawrence King.

This week’s featured song is “Anna Sun,” by Walk The Moon. *****On The Show Jon said that Walk The Moon would play w/The Kaiser Chiefs at The House Of Blues in Dallas Sept. 20th. Kaiser Chiefs rescheduled that show for a later date.
