Lucky number 77! In this free-for-all episode, Nick and GJ discuss cultural appropriation, the origins of common drinking phrases, journalistic integrity, fucking your way to the top, the brutality of ancient times, doxxing, and “social justice warriors” among other things!

During the Intro, Nick trips out of the gate just a bit…or is he just THAT amused with himself?

Up next is GJ’s Random Thought. His message this time? “Celebrity cameos are the new 35mm”. It’s an interesting thought. In 2014,  just how does a new filmmaker make a splash in the industry?

Geej and Robert know a thing or two about celebrity cameos.

Then it’s on to Whatcha Drinkin’?! This time around we get GJ’s take on a Summer classic, the Tom Collins. We’re calling ours the Lemony Snicket. It’s a Tom Collins in every way except for the inclusion of some homemade tamarind-orange gin. Tart, citrusy, and refreshing, it’s a delightful twist on an old standard that’s perfect for your late-Summer deck parties or for smuggling on to the golf course in one of those aluminum water bottles. You know what I’m talking about.

The Meat comes next. In this free-for-all episode, Nick and GJ discuss the origins of common drinking phrases, cultural appropriation, journalistic integrity, fucking your way to the top, the brutality of ancient times, doxxing, and “social justice warriors”. Other topics covered include, but are not limited to:

AND

  • Are Nick and Geej fans of Taylor Swift?!

Before wrapping up, we get a spirited round of Updates. This time, the boys discuss the ice bucket challenge, Dustin Diamond’s stunt wang, the truth about lemmings, and marginalized Minnesotans.
