Get a ‘Clue’ about Woody Allen

Yeah, so, here’s a rundown of this week’s podcast episodes.

At Dorking Out, Margo and I are talking about 1985’s “Clue,” starring everyone. During this rewatch I developed a new appreciation for Leslie Ann Warren’s Miss Scarlett, but Eileen Brennan’s Mrs. Peacock is still my style icon.

And over at What a Creep, we’re talking about Woody Allen.

We realize that for some this is a He Said/She Said situation, and we are Team She Said. And whether you believe Woody Allen sexually abused his daughter or not (and I think he did), he did have a sexual relationship with a young woman who was his children’s sister, and practically his step-daughter. That’s not up for debate. That’s a fact. That alone makes him a creep in my book.

ANYWAY, What a Creep is finding its audience, and that is really exciting. We have a Patreon page, and if you sign up you can get these adorable (everybody drink) charms and stickers.

Wearing a mask is so hot right now

Yeah, so, like a lot of folks we’ve been quarantining for 4 months.

The idea was to flatten the curve until we learn more about COVID-19 and get closer to a vaccine. And then, because “economy!,” some states began loosening restrictions and businesses started opening. And now, surprise, there’s been a spike in cases again. So … not much as changed. The virus is still spreading. Our immune systems haven’t changed. There’s no vaccine.

Cool, cool.

I don’t want to shit all over people for going out. And I certainly don’t want to shit on people for going back to work. I know that some people didn’t even have a choice. I do want to shit all over people who are going out without masks. Wear a mask! If you don’t do anything else, just wear a mask. You’re protecting yourself and others.

The MansTracy household is still quarantining. I know that we’re lucky that we can. My mighty, mighty good man David and I have great jobs that allow us to work from home. We know that’s a privilege. When we go out, we wear a mask, because it’s not a big deal.


Do we want to be quarantining? Hell no. I miss seeing my people. My mighty, mighty good boy Calvin said his only friends are in “Animal Crossing.” It wrecked us.

But quarantining and social distancing with a mask is the best way to be safe, so that’s what we’re doing.

I’ve been thinking about my chemo days lately. Gee, I wonder why. When you do chemotherapy, you have a compromised immune system. Even a common cold can turn into a big deal. That happened to me. I went out, and I was exposed to a common cold, which turned into a fever. I was hospitalized for three days.

I keep thinking about all the people who are in the middle of their cancer treatments. Can they even go to the hospital to continue their treatments during all of this? They have cancer, and they’re immunocompromised during a global pandemic. It must be terrifying.


I will never understand how quarantining and wearing a mask to help fight a global fuckin’ pandemic became a partisan issue.

My point is … red state, blue state, Democrat, Republican … surely, you know someone in your life who is worth saving.

Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. And WEAR A MASK!

Dorking out about ‘Roll Bounce’

Yeah, so, Margo and I put on our skates and dork out about “Roll Bounce” for this week’s Dorking Out.

My friends, this movie is just a joy to watch with the best soundtrack. If you’ve never seen, do yourself a solid and watch it now. And if you’ve seen it before, watch it again. You won’t be sorry.

Dork out everywhere …

Dorking out about ‘Summer School’

Yeah, so, this week’s Margo and I get a little hot for teacher and dork out about “Summer School,” starring Mark Harmon and Kirstie Alley.

We have a lot of thoughts about the characters Chainsaw and Dave. Before Bill and Ted, before Wayne and Garth, there were Chainsaw and Dave.

Dork out everywhere …

Be safe my guys, gals, and non-binary pals

Yeah, so, there’s a lot going on right now.

There’s a lot of work to be done. I hope you’re calling your congresspeople, donating to organizations that fight for what’s right (if you can), and supporting Black Lives Matter while you wash your hands and practice social distancing.

I’m going to write another post soon about what I’m doing to become a better ally. In the meantime, I’m doing a lot of reading and a lot of listening.

But I also wanted to say that I’m going to updating this blog more often. The Sonia Show will be your one-stop-shop for everything Sonia. You don’t need to track me down on all the channels. I’ll update you with my latest podcast episodes, photos, and more.

So, if you’re looking for a distraction, we recently talked about two of my favorite comedies on Dorking Out: “Legally Blonde” and “Real Genius.” And we did another installment of what’s becoming one of my favorite topics: 80s/90s thrillers that are fuckin’ bananas. This time it’s “Single White Female.”

Over at What a Creep, we talked about Clark Gable and Jerry Lee Lewis, and we end those episodes with people are not creeps.

By the way, did you see our amazing new logo? It’s our first fan art! SERIOUSLY! It’s by Claudia, and it’s the best thing ever.

My guys, gals, and non-binary pals, please be safe. Take care of yourself. Wash your hands. Wear your masks. And if someone is being racist, sexist, or homophobic, call that shit out. It’s not a difference of opinion. They’re wrong, and you’re right.
