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!
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”.
The Thing returns this week with our first ever music episode! Join Matt and Eric as they count down their top 5 current acts and delve into what makes music the perfect vehicle for finding The Thing. They also revisit Will Arnett’s groundbreaking Netflix series Flaked and spend some moments remembering a few greats who recently left us: Garry Shandling and Jim Harrison. This week’s episode is brought to you by our friends at Wandering Soul Touring company, check out their website at www.wanderdingsoultc.com!
We’re back from our brief mid-winter hiatus! This week we catch up on two weeks in review by discussing the Witch, some classic throwback Bowie, and the Thing of the week Deadpool! Please don’t be alarmed, Eric is not actually stuck in a well…we just had a minor audio issue. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work to make the Thing the best it can be. This episode is brought to you by the new pulpy crime thriller “Coyote” from author Bran Gustafson.
Eric and Matt try to figure out if anybody really likes the Eagles, talk sci-fi “Throwback Thing of the week”, and wrestle with the Revenant. Join us while we chew the fat, er, raw Buffalo liver.
