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.
