233: ‘Where The Juggalo Roam’ Artist Lucy Owen, The Interview Kerfuffle



This week on the Frotcast, Vince, Matt Lieb, and Brendan welcome artist Lucy Owen via Skype. Owen’s series of Juggalo portraits, Where The Juggalo Roam, is currently on display in Detroit. We swap her stories about this year’s Gathering of the Juggalos with ours about last year’s and compare our, American male reactions to the Gathering and Juggalo culture with her British female ones. We also talk about Matt’s latest commercial gig. And of course, we couldn’t not mention the Sony hack, The Interview’s canceled release clusterf-ck, and all about North Korea and doxxing. Enjoy.


Frotcast 203: Burnsy’s Corner & More Fun With Sterling, With Torio Van Grol



“He had those AIDS!” This week, we have some fun with Donald Sterling talking about Magic Johnson, Burnsy introduces three songs of summer in Burnsy’s Corner: Froggy Fresh’s “Stolen Bikes 2,” Stitches, with “Brick In Yo Face,” and an abomination called “The Plastics.” We talk about hemorrhoids, the most Florida things Burnsy has ever seen, and Ben bloops in from Malaysia. Our guest this week is comedian Torio Van Grol. Enjoy! 


Frotcast 201: Paul Shirley & Laremy Talk Donald Sterling & Short Term 12



Former NBA player Paul Shirley joins us at the top of the frot this week to talk about Donald Sterling and all the actual racist stuff he’s done vs. the weird stuff he said to his mistress that he actually got in trouble for. Questions include: is falling all over yourself to condemn him a case of thou dost protest too much? And is it better to have honest racists or racists who are smart enough to censor themselves? After that, we talk about the “botched” execution and the idea of cognitive dissonance in general, and then we get a visit from Ben, live from Thailand. He tells us about partying with monkeys and the beach where they shot The Beach, and we wrap things up with Film.com’s Laremy Legel on the subject of Short Term 12. Oh, and Matt Lieb finally comes clean about what it is about quicksand porn that he finds so hot. Enjoy. 


Frotcast 199: Awful Viral Ads & Burnsy’s Songs of Summer With Jason Dove



SF comedian and conspiracy nut Jason Dove drops by the Frotcast, while Uproxx’s Ashley Burns joins via Skype to talk about the origin of Boo Boo Stewart, and we find the world’s most evil viral ad. Burnsy introduces his pick for the song of the Summer, and we listen to the best interview of the week, with “Jammie,” who spells his name visually. Burnsy complains about Empire Records, we get a Jaden Smith update, Jason Dove tells us about the latest conspiracies, we read your porn emails and Brendan tells us about a dance battle he got into at a wedding. 


Frotcast 194: True Detective Finale, Kissing Ad, Internet Culture



If you’re looking to avoid True Detective spoilers, we don’t get particularly spoilery, but you can skip 39 minutes to about 53 if you really want to be safe. 
Matt Lieb is back in the Frotquarters with Vince, Bret, Ben, and Brendan this week. We open the show talking about what we think Veronica Mars might be about. Somehow this leads to a contest over the best Korn gibberish impression. Tweet the winner at #FreakOnALeashContest.That leads to a discussion of the worst nü-metal bands and forgotten early 90s music. Ben talks about the Whoop Dreams premiere in Chicago, and we play a deleted scene of Matt wishing he was getting laid (15:50). Brendan tells us about the ultimate tourist he saw in Hawaii (19:00). We discuss the kissing viral video that was actually an ad (22:30). We reminisce about Ugly Kid Joe for a while and wonder why no one shouts “Guitaaaah!” before the guitar solo anymore (28:00). Fake Bret shows up around 36:00 for an episode of “Fake Brettective.” 
We talk the True Detective from 39-53 and the obnoxiousness of people’s theories about it. We find a horrible Esquire article, and Matt tells us about why he pees sitting down (1 hour). We talk about Kickstarter and Veronica Mars, and why hobos don’t carry bindles anymore. Anyway, enjoy, tell a friend, and come see Vince do comedy at the Sports Basement at 6 pm this Friday (San Francisco). 


Frotcast 193: Oscars, Fruitvale Station, True Detective



This week on the Frotcast, comedian Matt Lieb is back in the Frotquarters, doing impressions of dead British men and freestyling to the song composed entirely out of Jeff Goldblum’s creepy laugh. The FilmDrunk.com & friends gang talk about the Oscars, including the various 12 Years A Slave controversies, and we listen to Steven Seagal’s latest assessment of Russia and their policy towards the Ukraine. Bret, Vince, and Matt all saw Fruitvale Station, so we talk about that and the nature of “based on a true story” movies in general. We wrap things up by talking about True Detective, and the basic suicide theories going around.

Enjoy, and remember, if you don’t tell your friends about the Frotcast, you’re not a real fan of the Frotcast.


Frotcast 184: Wolf of Wall Street



San Francisco comedian Matt Lieb and Bret join Vince and Brendan LIVE IN FROTQUARTERS to debate Wolf of Wall Street, along with Film.com’s Laremy Legel joining via Skype. Other topics include the hometown news blotter, in which we read about murders involving people we went to high school with, Matt Lieb’s Lord of the Rings holiday, and Shia Labeouf’s latest idiotic fake apology. We finish things off with an argument I had with Comcast robots in which I tried to get them to feel. It’s easily the best Frotcast of 2014!

Frotcast 183: Shia Labeouf, Do the Right Thing, Worst Movies of 2013



Matt Lieb was back in the Frotquarters this week, joining Bret and Burnsy via Skype. We talked about the Shia Labeouf plagiarism fiasco, Burnsy explained some of his choices for the worst movies of 2013, and we had a classic movie discussion of Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing.

This week’s clips included The Most Confusing Commercial Ever, The Most Australian News Clip of All Time, and a couple embarrassing accidental voice mails (don’t forget to hang up your phone next time you leave one!).

If you’re listening and you haven’t gotten to the Australia TV clips yet, I’d recommend sticking around.


Frotcast 182: Matt Lieb, Tila Tequila’s Anti-Semitic Meltdown



This week on the Frotcast, San Francisco comedian Matt Lieb drops by to tell us all about his latest healthy relationship after his last girl choked him out and spit on his face in a minivan. We listen to the song of the week, Tay Allyn, and her amazing commencement speech. We talk about Andy Serkis’s mo-cap Animal Farm movie, and Bret gives us the illustrator/coder’s perspective on hating motion-capture. Bret saw the Hobbit, but not in time to record. He did see The Way Way Back though! And of course, we talk about Tila Tequila’s wonderful anti-semitic breakdown in which she talks about the hollow moon, the synagogue of Satan, the illuminati, etc. etc. Fun for the whole family!
