This week, Mark & Carlo dip into the ol’ Listener Mailbag to read some of your tweets and emails about the first 19 episodes of F Your Show! Plus, we try to figure the next big hipster trends for 2015. Mouse Trap? POGS? Corn Dogs? Also, there’s a long argument about coffee and whether or not it’s the worst.
AJ Gordon (Car Stories) joins us to talk about the video games of our youth. We go deep on Mario and all of his friends, as well as Ecco the friendly dolphin who fights aliens. Plus we watch some old Sega commercials and the trailer for the feature-length Nintendo infomercial, The Wizard!
Matt Riker joins us to try out a new type of draft: The Grab Bag! Mark, Carlo & Matt will each randomly draw three characters, a location and a genre from a grab bag of 90’s movies. Then they’ll each pitch the movie that they’ve put together. Plus, Mark forgets he’s met Matt on multiple occasions and we watch the trailer for the John Hughes classic, Baby’s Day Out!
Andrew Delman (MPGiS) joins us to draft the cast of our own 90’s kids movies! We argue about which Home Alone movie was better, talk about child vampires and watch a bunch of commercials for 90’s toys including the Talkboy!
Our good friend Kat Jones joins us for a very special episode of F Your Show all about Guilty Pleasures. Today we’ll reveal all of the things we secretly love, but are too embarrassed to tell anyone about. Things like the Real Housewives, Kenny G, and the mindfreak himself, Criss Angel!
Gaby Dunn joins us to draft our fantasy prom playlists of the 2000’s! Carlo confesses a lot of really shameful shit, Mark talks about seeing a dead body at a Six Flags when he was twelve, and Gaby explains the real meaning of Who Let the Dogs Out!
