THIS IS A OLD SHOW! With a wife on vacation, a co host in lala land, and another still skiing or something, this is a fantastic example of what the FBC used to be like when we were on the original feed. We Start with Cum, Briefly mention politics, Go into some comics talk, end with a list of some sort. Wait who the hell am I kidding that is still what our show is but just more condensed. In this one, we find out just how bad a parent Mike and TJ are, We talk Grant Morrison and some horribly wrong speculation that we know now in hindsight, Ms. Marvel, Brubaker, and Hulk. To put a shiny bow on this we make a presidential administration out of Superhero characters, because I am sure no one else has ever thought to do something like that before. If you are new to the show, this is a treat of a marathon clocking in at just over 2 hours (how long our show used to be), if you are a long time fan, revisit the good old days.

With one bomber having audio troubles and another going to a dinner with celebrities, the f bombcast needed to run a repeat this week. The Full Monty Folks, Here and Waving our geek Flag proudly. Psst, Did you know there was a thing called Breast Cancer? If not let me just say WooHoo I just raised your awareness. A discussion of the direction of DC comics post Blackest Night as well as about event burnout in general. A bunch a really good movies are discussed: The Kite Runner, Battlestar Galactica: The Plan, Some Dungeons and Dragons Flick Mike watched, Drag Me to Hell, A Haunting in Connecticut. Then the boys get all philosophical on two movies that really no one should ever get philosophical about ever: Doomsday and They Live. The Musical INfatuation lives as we hear a god awful indie song by Kevin but since it is about Steve McQueen it automatically becomes cool, Kamelot from Mike, and Dream Theater from TJ. Comics Round out this table of geekery with: Stumptown, House of Mystery, and Godland.
