Join us on THE THING your podcast for all things interesting. This week we float along on the happy little clouds of the late great Bob Ross, check in with Prophets of Rage, and take a peek at Peaky Blinders. Finally, we get giddy over out Thing of the Week, Bo Burnham’s brilliantly absurd new Netflix comedy special “Make Happy”. So stick us in your ears Thigamabobs, and ask yourself: Are you happy?
This week on The Thing: The Horn of Plenty! In the absence of a true Thing of the Week, Matt & Eric deliver a veritable smorgasbord of Week in Review, Throwback, and Thing of the Week topics. It’s all here folks, our breakdown on the movies, TV, music, podcasts, comedy, comic books, and more that we say are worth your time right now. Join our rapid fire roundup of goodness!
This week Eric and Matt honor the loss and legacy of the Purple One, Throwback to a 1986 comedy classic, channel some Michael Scott, and dig deep into the creatively fearless and mystifying new film Midnight Special. So hop on board for the ride…like a train…like the Midnight Special…that you board…at the station…with a ticket…and your luggage….I’ll show myself out…
The boys review the week in entertainment including a recap of an “educational” week of stand-up comedy, missed Springsteen, Record Store Day, and a little Star Wars (naturally). They FLASH! back to 1980 for a classic sci-fi Throwback Thing and Ding! Ding! They climb into the ring to discuss the excellent and inspirational addition to the Rocky franchise, CREED…”it’s already in the cloud”…..”What cloud?”
This episode is once again sponsored by the motorcycle rental outfitter Wandering Soul Touring Co., who remind you to “Choose Adventure”.
Eric and Matt recap a wild, whirlwind week of Comedy, get wound up about the new Star Wars Rogue One trailer (spoiler alert…they’re freaking out), give props to a classic film from the ’70’s in this week’s Throwback Thing, and discuss the modern cultural experience that is House of Cards. Grab some Freddy’s BBQ & join us!
