370: ‘Solo’ I Can’t Hear You Boycotting, With Joe Sinclitico And Alison Stevenson



This week on the Frotcast, we’re recording from the new Frotquarters in LA for the first time ever! But we’ve got that same ol’ Frotcast magic, thanks to returning guests comedian Joe Sinclitico and comedienne Alison Stevenson — with Matt Lieb joining remotely and Vince Mancini handling the controls. This week we’re talking ‘Solo,’ sort of, and the weird, Gam3rg8-esque backlash that’s convinced that Kathleen Kennedy is using Star Wars to advance a “feminist agenda.” We also discuss Gringo, the John McAfee documentary about how he likes to kill people and eat poop (seriously, he lets ladies poop in his mouth). And we learn about Alison’s dating life, talk “ghosting,” and all the 21st century relationship etiquette. Enjoy and Frot on, donate at Patreon.com/Frotcast and don’t forget to review us on iTunes so we can climb the charts and rule the world.

Frotcast 202: True Romance & Patrick Schumacker’s Wedding Nightmare



San Francisco comedians Matt Lieb & OJ Patterson join for a Frotcast about True Romance, plus Surviving Jack writer Patrick Schumacker calls in to talk about The Hemorrhoid That Destroyed a Marriage. Okay, technically just a wedding, but it’s still a great story. In a surprise turn, his show got cancelled just a few hours before we recorded :-(. We start off with a little about OJ, the San Francisco comedy scene, and Matt having to talk the crazy girl who spit in his face out of suicide. We finish off with an in-depth conversation about True Romance. Typical FilmDrunk Frotcast. 


Frotcast 200! Laremy, Transcendence, and Heather the Glib Lesbian



200 Frotcasts! We celebrate with Film.com’s Laremy Legel, who joins at the top top of the frot to read us his latest list and talk about Transcendence, which he also thought was much better than its 19% RT recommended rating would indicate. We answer a few of your reader questions about comedy and anal, and Ben calls us direct from Thailand (KaplanVisuals.com, if you’re wondering what he’s been up to). Then we bring on everyone’s favorite glib lesbian, Heather. She tells us about teaching writing at a prison, working as a mad scientist for children’s parties, and what it’s like being known around Brooklyn as “the lesbian who hates sex.” 


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!

Quote: “I’m fake and gay? THIS WHOLE COURTROOM IS FAKE AND GAY!” -Our pitch for ‘Mr. Smith Goes to the Internet.’


Frotcast 181: Matt Ufford and The Pomegrandler



This week on the Frotcast, the world’s best sort-of movie podcast, we’ve got SBNation’s Matt Ufford joining us via Skype. We start things off old school, with the latest poop transplant news, including the poop pill pioneering being done in Canada. We transition into a discussion of Kevin Connolly’s (E from Entourage) 30 for 30 episode. We get into our favorite TV shows of the week. Before long I introduce the rest of the Frot gang to our new obsession, the vegan hippie rap bros Chef Seth and Pa-Chow. They even inspire a new character, “The Pomegrandler,” the hippie vegan Whole Foods answer to The Hamburglar. We talk a little about Paul Walker and the anus of SEO, before finishing things off with The Listener Word Bucket, including your relationship questions about whether your lady should accept your porn watching and the etiquette of herpes dating. Enjoy. Tell your friends and all that sh*t.

Live, love, Frot.


Frotcast 180: Catching Fire & Oldboy with Laremy Legel



Bret, Laremy, and Vince on this early holiday episode. We open the show
talking about heckler stories, including Vince’s recent experience with
the drunk girl at the dueling piano bar who kicked the piano man in the
face. We lead into Spike Lee’s Oldboy remake (full review forthcoming) and the idea of remakes in general. Based on Sharlto Copley in Oldboy and Jodie Foster in Elysium, we discuss the most ill-advised acting performances of this year, and of all time. We talk about Only God Forgives
and misanthropic directors, and promos for network TV shows that are so
ridiculous they feel like SNL sketches. We wrap it up with your emails
about dates gone wrong, horrible break-ups, job troubles, church,
existential buffoons, and dominatrices.


Frotcast 179: Workaholics Co-Creator Connor Pritchard, Christian Dating Gurus



This week on the Frotcast, we’re joined by Workaholics co-creator Connor Pritchard, who recently wrote The Order of the Magi, and has been promoting it with elaborate scavenger hunt. This week’s theme is “The Idiot Guru,” which was inspired this news story we heard about, where Justin Lookado was in a bit of hot water for giving some sweet dating advice like “dateable girls know how to shut up” to high schoolers. We go through his “10 Rules of Dateability” for men and women, such as “Men of God are wild, not domesticated.”

There’s also our song of the week, Peter Dante’s N-word meltdown, creepy James Toback, Daniel Day-Lewis’s son the rap star, Wolf of Wall Street subject Jordan Belfort’s motivational speaking tour, and your emails.

Enjoy! Email at us at frotcast@gmail.com. Write us some reviews, and send us links to them!


Frotcast 178: Alison Stevenson, Hobbit Food, BDSM Seminars



This week on the FilmDrunk Frotcast, we bring on Alison Stevenson, she of Vice and FilmDrunk’s award-winning “Rum and Rom-Coms” feature fame. We talk about Vince and Matt Lieb’s Hobbit meal at Denny’s, the “financial domination” seminar Alison attended, and all of the movies Ben has been watching during chemo, including Skyfall and Man of Steel.

We share dating stories, including Alison’s OKCupid date on mushrooms. We answer your questions, including Brendan’s stories about how the NFL deals with concussions, and a reader who has implemented “Hater Court” at a daycare. Plus another about a homeless lady putting speed stick on her vagina. Good times, good times.
