4K Glossy News Podcast 031 (2-22-16)

Despite having my office burglarized and almost all of my production gear stolen, the podcast is back with even more original than ever before.

All of this is available in UHD on YouTube by searching “Glossy Podcast” or as an MP3 on iTunes by searching “Glossy News”.

Here are the topics covered in the the February 22nd, 2016 4K/UHD podcast.

* Review of the James Bond film “Spectre”. Spoiler alert, I wasn’t a big fan, but I give all the reasons.

* What do Chinese landlords do when stuff in their rentals break? I mean, it simply must do that all the time, right?

* The weird dreams I keep having about a fast, hot, topless Viper.

* Pop culture isn’t dead. In fact, it’s coming back stronger than ever.

* Why do top comics and intellectuals get $10,000 to $50,000 to give speeches, while Hillary, who isn’t a terribly good speaker, get a quarter million dollars? The answer may not surprise you.

* If “The Purge” was real, you know, the night when you can commit any crime without repercussion, it wouldn’t be all about murder like the movies show. No, there are a bunch of other crimes on which the problems would center.

Guy Wearing Funny T-Shirt Must be Funny

SPOKANE, WA—Upon seeing local vending machine assembler Paul Drummond walking down the sidewalk Tuesday, onlookers concluded that Drummond was funny based on the fact that he was wearing a humorous t-shirt.

“Why else would he be wearing a shirt like that?” said Julie Eubanks, who saw the comical t-shirt-clad Drummond in person.

For decades, funny people have communicated this fact by the selection of their clothing, namely amusing t-shirts, say experts. Drummond, being no exception, tells the world of his hilarity by donning a shirt that takes a reference from a popular science fiction movie and applies it to life in general. Read the full story

We’ve lived on this planet for thirty-five years now, and though we have easily adopted their mannerisms, assumed their practices, and assimilated their languages, we think it’s safe to say there are some things that we will never understand – as sure as Rumyliak has three suns and Gorpin was a grifter.
