Anthony Blinken rocks in the free world and eats pizza in a Nazi restaurant.[Factual correction: 48, not "like a hundred," people died in the Odessa Trade Union Fire.]Biden channels Dirty Harry and now we have three debates between him and Trump to look forward to.

211 - Something So Unbelievably, Surreally and Exquisitely Terrible That You Want to Share It With the Rest of the World feat. Adrian DeLaTorre
We discuss the somehow fifteen years in the making, unhinged in all ways, crème de la crème of Bad Cinema—an animated kid's movie trying to cash in on 1995's Toy Story mania—Foodfight!  We gather 'round the table of the theater of the mind with good-bad cinema coorespondant Adrian DeLaTorre  (@b00tz2big) of the podcast Never Seen It and discuss all its mind-rattlingly grotesque CGI animation, bizarre and turbulent production backstory, the tyrannical and oblivious figure of Lawrence Kasanoff (director, writer, producer) at the helm of this feverish, malformed vision, the confused messaging about the Third Reich and how it's connected to buying generic brands, interspecies and BDSM trysts, and the all the other myriad unintentionally surreal, hilarious, and nightmarish qualities of it as a whole. Referenced previous episodes:158 - The Sky Was Crystal Blue, Just Like 9/11 feat.

MAGA diapers and brainworms. More brainworms abound in the form of the ever-mindnumbing Red Scare podcast and their recent strokefest with the most boring and incoherent and inexplicably valorized of "race realism" blowhards, Steve Sailer. They have a wonderfully stupid time being little "Noticers" together.Farha Khalidi is the actually intelligent and interesting "Red Scare-esque," vocal fry monotoned, bohemian layabout-er, niche internet personality we need as an alternative to whatever the RS ladies have been up to these past four or five years.More outrageous and horrific news about Israel-Palestine.Kristi Noem loses her shit on TV and, in turn, probably, her nomination to be Trump's VP.Vivek Ramaswamy gets cucked into oblivion by Franksteinian relic Ann Coulter.Commiserate on Discord: discord.gg/aDf4Yv9PrYSupport: patreon / buzzsproutNever Forget: standwithdanielhale.orgGeneral RecommendationsJosh's Recommendations: 1) Owen Jones 2) Rahma ZeinTim's Recommendation: The Jinx (Season Two)Further Reading, Viewing, ListeningFull list of links, sources, etc More From Joshua Nomen-MutatioThe band he hits drums 'n' such with: Gorymurgy (links to just about everything) More specifically: Music videos, live show videos, etc.More From Timothy Robert BuechnerPodcast: Q&T ARETweets: @ROHDUTCHLocationless Locationsheatdeathpod.comEvery show-related link is corralled and available here.Twitter: @heatdeathpodPlease send all Letters of Derision, Indifference, Inquiry, Mild Elation, et cetera to: heatdeathoftheuniversepodcast@gmail.comSupport the Show.

Change. That's wassup.Four distinctly stupid theories about why these dern kids are making such a ruckus from Skeletor-faced dipshit Professor Scott Galloway, Smugness Incarnate Trying to Devour Itself and Jack Off at the Same Time (Bill Maher), Fareed "What's Wrong With a Little South African Apartheid" Zakaria, and with a mind as sharp as a down pillow, Jordan Peterson.Many are saying that Sen.

208 - The Brave Little T-Shirt Wife
We return to the more standard format of a flurry of cornucopias of pastiches of mixed bags of different topics. Cucker Tarlson forcibly time travels us back to the culture wars of the mid 2000s by confidently denying that evolutionary theory is a viable reality. Anthony Fauci did not have to conspiratorily create HIV to be the heinous person that he is. The bravest lil wife and her Jew/Israel t-shirt. [Factual Correction: They went to the Yale campus not Columbia.]Prime Minister Bibi thoughtfully equates anti-genocide, anti-ethnic cleansing, anti-apartheid protests at current day universities with the anti-Semitic, pro-fascist, pro-genocide agitations on university campuses in Germany during the rise of Nazism in the 1930s.We talk about the state of the protests, their attendent media coverage, etc.Tim analyzes the faces of the various prime ministers of Israel over the years. (Teaser: one looks like a melting American movie star.)British journalist  Gideon Falter does his smaller scale and Zionist version of the Jussie Smollet staged victimhood-ality.More evidence of the IDF being the "most moral army in the world": drones that lure innocents into sniping range with recorded cries for help, mass graves of hospital patients (i.e. terrorists), and more.John Fetterman (i.e. Shrekton LaVey) continues to be a complete moron spewing dangerous gibberish.TikTok about to be banned the day before the next president takes office.Aaron Sorkin is writing a script about January 6th."Tony Khan discusses taking the TK Driver from the Bucks and compares WWE to Harvey Weinstein"Elon Musk denies his roots, and more.Another very public self-immolation hits the news wires.What are the inscrutable Chinese doing on the dark side of the moon??South Korea has competitive "Space Out" tournements, so lower that heartrate and go for the gold!Referenced previous episodes: 112 - Jailed Innocents and Fauci's Three Pillars of Evil022 - Levitate This Podcast!: The Trial of the Chicago 7089 - Scratch Adams Bootstraps for DullardsCommiserate on Discord: discord.gg/aDf4Yv9PrYSupport: patreon / buzzsproutNever Forget: standwithdanielhale.orgGeneral RecommendationsJosh's Recommendations: 1) Late Night With the Devil 2) The SympathizerTim's Recommendation: Resident AlienFurther Reading, Viewing, ListeningFull list of links, sources, etc More From Timothy Robert BuechnerQ&T ARE@ROHDUTCHSupport the Show.

207 - Taking Drugs To Make Podcasts To Take Drugs To (Although You Never Can Tell) feat. Elicia McCoy
We dive into the widely heralded, earth-toned and Scorsese-helmed artifact of the mid-70s, The Last Waltz, with special guest Elicia McCoy. We discover extratexual tidbits, branch off into fractals of digression, share diverging and converging opinions alike, and generally have a hip and groovy time thinking about the Thankgiving Day 1976 vibes created by Marty's (yeah, we call him Marty, so what?) pioneering directorial efforts. The nature of art and commerce, uncanny links to Pulp Fiction, alternate timelines where John Hinckley Jr. pulls an assassination attempt on someone at the famed concert instead of upon Ronny Reagan, dueling guitars-qua-phalluses, the elusive nature of the guitar solo itself, the connection between touring and drug use, the special effects created to hide Neil Young's coke nostril, Thanksgiving dinner for 5,000 inebriated people, the grand unified meaning of the whole dang thang via ancient Heraclitean wisdom — it's all there, man.  Commiserate on Discord: discord.gg/aDf4Yv9PrYSupport: patreon / buzzsproutNever Forget: standwithdanielhale.orgGeneral RecommendationsJosh's Recommendation: Fearless FreaksElicia's Recommendations: 1) Off the Charts: A Song-Poem Story 2) Find the hard-to-find documentary It’s Bigger Than Hip Hop and send it to her via the podcast 3)  Bathtubs Over Broadway Tim's Recommendation: Michael and UsFurther Reading, Viewing, ListeningYou Had to Be There (podcast) - The Last WaltzThe Making of The Last Waltz, the Band’s Concert-Film MasterpieceAmerican Boy: A Profile of Steven PrinceMore From Joshua Nomen-MutatioThe band he hits drums 'n' such with: Gorymurgy (links to just about everything) More specifically: Music videos, live show videos, etc.More From Timothy Robert BuechnerQ&T ARE@ROHDUTCHLocationless Locationsheatdeathpod.comEvery show-related link is corralled and available here.Twitter: @heatdeathpodPlease send all Letters of Derision, Indifference, Inquiry, Mild Elation, et cetera to: heatdeathoftheuniversepodcast@gmail.comSupport the Show.

205 - Perchance to Unplan, Babies to Blame, Sources Say
We go strictly off-the-cuff. Something not done since Episode 064 - Our 11th Hour Improvised Episode. Come for the hodgepodge, stay for the fun talk about getting arrested and locked up. Extreme sleep deprivation (for one of us). Fake news generator (perchance.org/newsheadline). Self-haircuts: yea or nay? The rhythm method. Struggling mightily to locate a nagging memory of The Simpsons (found it later). The true pronunciation / kickass official emblem of Oman. Cute mascots for George Floyd. Pachinko machine parlors are loud as fuck? Debate! TV about the seriousness of working at a restaurant: good or bad? One of the hosts talks about firsthand experience with carceral winemaking. Remember taser- and pepperspray-based memes? Movies: just things happening on a screen? It's digressions all the way down. Return to more formalism next week.

We discuss the new documentary series The Program: Cons, Cults and Kidnapping and the inexhaustable ability to exploit and capitalize upon anything under the sun, including 'troubled teens,' 'at-risk youth,' etc. We talk about the micro to the macro regarding the Troubled Teen Industry (TTI) and Josh brings along some firsthand experience with working at similar kinds of institutions to the conversation.

202 - Do Not Worship This False Prophet From the Streets of Sesame!
Daniel Hale is finally out of prison and has written an article that asks why he was locked up for the same crime Joe Biden has openly admitted to (although Joe's motives were far less noble than Daniel's).Jordan "Stop! Or My Dragon of Chaos Will Shoot!" Peterson continues to publicly lose his mind and keep the grift alive and well, redmeat-induced tears and all.Major publishers and broadcasters try to construct the thinnest of facades of apparent sanity over their evil deeds, journalist Steven W.

According to local tradition, the only way to safely complete the crossing was to appease the river gods with tributes of decapitated heads. Unwilling to resort to human sacrifice, Zhuge instead ordered his crew to fashion animal heads out of wheat dough and meat fillings. The River Gods were fooled, the ships crossed safely, and his doughy creations became known, thereafter, as ‘barbarian heads’.

We're joined by Alex "WORLDWIDE" Kellar (@TheTowerSkin) of the Bored2Life podcast (@Bored2LifePod) to sift through the news rough in search of humor-diamonds and various truth-gems. Asking the difficult questions like, Where have all the good porn parodies gone? And why's cash being left on the table with the absence of an I ♡ Huckabees meets the Trumps incestual cuckholdry extravaganza?Biden and his sad dwindling fanclub also said and did a bunch of hilarious and heinous shit yet again. A pop star's charitable donation dwarfed the US governments token gesture of aide to the genocide cage called Gaza by more than a 100x (and didn't manage to drop said crate of expired food rations on five people, striking them dead).Matt Miler, the cartoonisly evil lacky for the Vereinigten Staate Ministerium für Volksaufklärung und Propaganda, continues to brazely smirk and appear to be stifling wild Jokerfied laughter while lying and talking about unspeakable atrocities.Various politicians and other reprehensible demons in humanoidlike disguise continue to be protested in public, often revealing a glimpse beneath the humanoid or "progressive" veneer, including the "good ones" of The Squad variety.Commiserate on Discord: discord.gg/aDf4Yv9PrYSupport: patreon / buzzsproutNever Forget: standwithdanielhale.orgGeneral RecommendationsTim's Recommendation: Watch the Oscars?!Josh's Recommendations: 1) Dune: Part Two*** 2) The Beekeeper***‘Dune 2’ Will ‘Delay the Spread’ of Streaming and ‘Crumbled’ My Fear That It Was Time to Start Watching Movies on Phones, Says Hideo KojimaMore From Alex "WORLDWIDE" KellarPodcast: @Bored2LifePodTwitter: @TheTowerSkinMusic: Ratfucker [Send an email to bored2lifepod@gmail.com to get a tape.]More From Joshua Nomen-MutatioThe band he hits drums 'n' such with: Gorymurgy (links to just about everything) More specifically: Music videos, live show videos, etc.More From Timothy Robert BuechnerPodcast: Q&T ARETwitter: @ROHDUTCHLocationless Locationsheatdeathpod.comEvery show-related link is corralled and available here.Twitter: @heatdeathpodPlease send all Letters of Derision, Indifference, Inquiry, Mild Elation, et cetera to: heatdeathoftheuniversepodcast@gmail.comSupport the Show.

199 - That Rascally Vaush Will Keep You Gessen, Haddish?
What's often lurking beneath the surface of libertarianism via Penn Jillette.  Will a socialistic revolution create a lowered age of consent? & the demarcation between toon and non-toon pornography & celebrity endorsement deals with the Israeli government via Vaush and Tiffany Haddish.Highly digressive "Red Scare Scrounge Up".Navalny's false martyrdom and his very real white supremacy.Matt Walsh (the bad one) acts-a-fool again.More ups and downs between Snoop Dogg and Trump.Trump's new footwear product manifests his core essence.Have things cooled down in Gaza yet? You may not like the answer.Michael Rapaport being hit in the head with a snowball mid-screeching monologue is the cureall you didn't even know you needed.Hillary Clinton just wants to drone Assange. Is that so much to ask? It's HER time! I am proudly wearing my "I Drone Innocent Journalists With Her!" button on my pussy hat. Slay.Despite sending a certain contingent of NPR totebag clutching types into hysterics because he pointed out that both Trump AND Joe Biden are old, Jon Stewart sounds indistinguishable from the neocons (and the conserva-libs in the ever-rightward shifting overton window) he gleefully, profitably,  skewered in the old days.Ben Garrison's still at it, making political cartoons based again.Commiserate on Discord: discord.gg/aDf4Yv9PrYSupport: patreon / buzzsproutNever Forget: standwithdanielhale.orgGeneral RecommendationsJosh's Recommendations: 1) Fargo (Season Five) 2) The Onion Tim's Recommendation: The Last Waltz + The idea of covering it on the podcastMore From Joshua Nomen-MutatioThe band he hits drums 'n' such with: Gorymurgy (links to just about everything) More specifically: Music videos, live show videos, etc.More From Timothy Robert BuechnerQ&T ARE@ROHDUTCHFurther Reading, Viewing, ListeningFull list of links, sources, etc Locationless Locationsheatdeathpod.comEvery show-related link is corralled and available here.Twitter: @heatdeathpodPlease send all Letters of Derision, Indifference, Inquiry, Mild Elation, et cetera to: heatdeathoftheuniversepodcast@gmail.comSupport the Show.

After we address some news items of the day, we assemble at the General Council of Anthropomorphized Astrological Signs, along with good-bad cinema coorespondent Adrian DeLaTorre (Never Seen It / @b00tz2big), and discuss the brand new Jennifer Lopez vanity project / perfume ad / EPK for her new album / movie (?) This is Me...Now. Described to us in advance as being about JLo as a "Sex-Addicted Insomniac In Space" but it's so much more (and less) than that. Did Jane Fonda, Fat Joe, Neil DeGrass Tyson, and Post Malone all work for scale? Just who exactly is Ben Affleck's bit role as a news anchor character supposed to be lampooning? Did Jennifer Lopez rip off Neal Breen or is it the other way around...now? Does the director's credit as the director of a promotional video for the utopian Saudi project NEOM have any connection to anything here? Do hummingbirds dance in the rain? And do you know the tale of Alida and Taroo? No?

196 - A Supposedly Sympathetic, Well-Meaning, Elderly Man with a Poor Memory I'll Never Not Laugh at Again
We're talkin' Biden keeping totally cool and calm and 1000% lucid during a press conference in which his cognitive faculties are mildly questioned. When they go low, he goes high. Real high. On secret amphetamines brewed in John Podesta's cauldron in the depths of the Pentagon. Tim updates us in his Red Scare Scrounge Up (patent pending) segment. Who wore the border wall and kid cages better, Biden or Trump?Will HRC run again? Kamala as running mate? We speculate not wildly or irreverently at all. HBO Go™ to the Polls!

195 - When Mating Strategies Fail
A seriously digressive episode. Forty minute 'cold open' which hit the cutting room floor, which I then slipped on, banana peel style, only to bash my head into the editing bay console. When I came to, this episode was uploaded somehow. I may someday release the UNRATED UNCUT version. We talk a bit about the brilliance of James Adomian. Podcasting about podcasts a little bit. Though we manage to right the ship sometimes and touch upon topics like: Why You Should Never RetireJ "Through a Brandon Darkly" Robinette B wakes up for his allotted 3.5 minutes per day and publicly flies into another senile rage about "How dare he say that about my son and [unintelligible slurring]! I call em patriots'n'[unintelligible slurring, sounds like 'hoes']."Some moron writes moronically about how Javier Milei's overt fascism is actual quite Nuanced and Pragmatic.Scott "Dilbertarian" Adams has some interesting opinions about the profound role of jism in our crumbling civilization and an interesting take on how to greet one's father in a society where all men implicitly want to harm each other.Snoop Dogg ends beef with Trump.

194 - There's No Sound I Don't Like, Solitary Mind Games, and Cage-based Parental Strategies feat. Jason Newland
