wg101

On the 101st episode: WGVH co-founders MATT RISNES and DANNO KLONOWSKI go see a movie, DANNO and EARL LUCKES discuss that movie, and that movie kills both it’s own franchise and nearly this podcast.

FIRST: DANNO scored two seats to a sneak preview of TERMINATOR: GYNYSYS at the only TRVE IMAX in MN, so listen as he and MATT race along Highway 494 to see it and discuss the TERMINATOR franchise so-far, what they expect from GYNYSYS (not much), and what they’d like to see if it were done right (it wasn’t).

THEN: Since the laptop battery died 7 minutes into the drive home, DANNO was going to totally scrap this episode–because FUCK TYRMYNYTYR: GYNYSYS!!!–but DANNO‘s old cartooning pal EARL LUCKES posted on Facebook he not only LIKED GYNYSYS, but TERMINATOR 2: JUDGMENT DAY is the WORST film in the franchise (not counting SALVATION, which NO ONE does).  THOSE ARE FIGHTING WORDS!!!! So listen in as EARL and DANNO has a civil discourse about EARL’s heresy and what hope, if any, this franchise has.

FINALLY: Because this episode was doomed, EARL‘s son accidentally unplugged the mic and the last 5 minutes sound like we are in a submarine.

FUCK THIS EPISODE!!! 

Thanks again to EARL for the chat. Sorry you had to be a part of the WGVH’s greatest disaster. And thanks, as always, to YOU for listening! WHY DID YOU LISTEN TO THAT?!?!?!  Ep. 102 will be up in 4 days because seriously–FUCK TERMINATOR: GYNYSYS!

wg98

On the 98th(!) ep. DANNO KLONOWSKI is joined once again from all the way from across the pond by Host 4 of the show ANDY LUNN for two in-depth discussions on two great pop culture touchstones: MAD MEN and JAMES BOND!!!

(SHOW NOTE: Somehow in the saving process this episode went from STEREO to MONO. Trust me, I’m more annoyed than you are, because seriously: THIS IS THE BEST EDITED EPISODE OF THE SERIES TO DATE!!! –danno) 

FIRST: MAD MEN has come to an end, and so THE LUNN and DANNO, both huge fans, have both a discussion of how it all ended and a retrospective look back at the series in general via a discussion of it’s classic and memorable characters.

NEXT: With great decorum and British Stiff-Upper-Lipidness The LUNN is subjected to 10 questions about his favorite James Bond: ROGER MOORE on the WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR MOVIE GAME..

FINALLY: DANNO vowed at age 12 to NEVER watch a JAMES BOND film. The LUNN has been in love with BOND for probably even longer. And so, as another WGVH “DANNO’s HOMEWORK” experiment: ANDY recommended 3 BOND films for DANNO to watch–not LUNN’s favorite films, but 3 he thinks will WIN DANNO OVER on the series! Lunn’s picks were: GOLDFINGER, The MAN WITH THE GOLDEN GUN, and SKYFALL. Also DANNO watched CASINO ROYALE because he heard MADS MIKKLESON was the baddie. So…how did it go? Did DANNO fall in love with BOND? Did he HATE IT so much and with such conviction he convinces THE LUNN he’s wasted his life? Listen in and find out!!!

Thanks once again to Host 4 ANDY LUNN for the lovely chat, and as always to YOU for listening!

NEXT: HONKASS has his knowledge of the #1 “Alternative” Billboard hits of 1994 tested on The WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR MOVIE GAME!!!

So DANNO and HONKASS each pick 5 CELEBRITIES who should be DEAD by now. Not just being judgemental jerks, the AARON and DANNO discuss WHEN and HOW they should have died to ENSURE THEIR LEGACIES, instead of having lived long enough to see it destroyed. So, it’s a classy talk. THANKS, AARON!
