Yeah, so, I’ve got nothing but love for “House Party.” I’m so glad that Margo and I finally did an episode about it on Dorking Out.
Yeah, so, with the coronavirus spreading all over the world, Margo and I figured it was a perfect time to revisit 1995’s OUTBREAK on this week’s Dorking Out.
The movie stars renowned action star Dustin Hoffman, Renee Russo, Morgan Freeman, Cuba Gooding, Jr., Donald Sutherland, and super creep Kevin Spacey.
I hope you’re all being safe, my friends.
Unfortunately, here in the U.S., we have an ignorant president, who is more worried about increasing cases of this virus hurting his chances for re-election, and a vice president who doesn’t think science is a thing, so they’re not really doing anything to prevent it from spreading.
Yeah, so, like every other woman over 40 I’m completely in love with Lizzo. A few days before Halloween she came to San Francisco for two nights, and she was good as hell.
My sister Michelle and I had such a good time. The audience was the nicest and most polite audience I’ve ever seen at a concert.
I saw a woman trying to take a selfie in the restroom, and another woman (a stranger!) said, “You look so great. Let me take that photo for you.”
The crowd was mainly women and gay men, so it was also the most apologetic group ever.
“No, I’m sorry.”
“No, no. It was my fault.”
“No, I’m sorry. You first.”
Since the concert was a few nights before Halloween, and I knew everyone would have a 100% That Bitch shirt I decided to get something a little different.
Of course, my silly shirt wasn’t the best outfit at the concert. While waiting in line to get into the concert, I saw the most amazing jacket. I couldn’t stop staring at it, and repeatedly asking Michelle, “Whooooooose jacket is this?”
Sometimes I just text her this photo and ask her again, “Whooooooose jacket is this?” I will never not be funny to me.
Yeah, so, Margo and I talk about Louis CK on our latest episode of What a Creep.
There are some folks who think what Louis CK did isn’t that big of a deal. It is, and we talk about it. We also have a really good chat about the difference between punching up and punching down in comedy.
Oh, and, I get all ranty, so if you’re aching to hear Ranty Sonia, this is the episode for you.
Over at Dorking Out, we continue to celebrate F This Movie’s #ScaryMovieMonth with an episode about “The Blair Witch Project.” This movie absolutely terrified me back in 1999. How does it hold up? We talk about it.
We’ve got big plans for both podcasts in November. The Patreon page for What a Creep will go live soon. Plus, we’re celebrating season 5 (OMG!) in November with a theme: 90s in November. If you have a movie from the ’90s you’d love for us to dork out about, let us know on Twitter or send us an email at email@example.com.
Yeah, so, here’s a few podcasting updates for you …
Here’s actual footage of me talking about Betsy DeVos …
Yeah, so, I’m super excited to announce that my new podcast with Margo D. is out there in the world.
It’s “What a Creep,” and every week we will talk about a creep. But don’t worry. We don’t want you to think the world is a complete dumpster fire, so we’re adding every episode with someone who isn’t a creep. So far, we’ve talked about Lance Armstrong, Newt Gingrich, Elizabeth Holmes and Mel Gibson.
You’d think that talking about someone who is a huge asshole wouldn’t be fun, but I swear it is. You should listen. Coming out this Friday is Chevy Chase. Be glad that he’s Chevy Chase and you’re not is all I’m saying.
Up next for Dorking Out is “Creed,” which most likely includes “Rocky” and “Creed 2” in the discussion.
Yeah, so, apparently I love the sound of my own voice (and Margo’s voice) because I’m doing another podcast with my podcasting sister from another mister, Margo D.
Our new podcast, What a Creep, starts Friday. We’re going to talk about creeps! My friends, you are going to LOVE THIS ONE. Margo and I are going to alternate stories about creeps, and every episode will end with a story about someone who isn’t a creep, so you don’t end the podcast thinking the world is a dumpster fire.
Don’t worry, though, Dorking Out isn’t going anywhere. We will still have new episodes every week. Here’s what you’ve missed lately:
- What is really going on in 1991’s “Father Of The Bride?” One of our favorite podcasters and writers Adam Riske from F This Movie! joins us to talk about it.
- Smith returns to the podcast to talk about “Avengers: Endgame” with me.
- Apparently, Jazzercise is a thing again, so Margo and I decided to talk about 1985’s “Perfect,” starring John Travolta and Jamie Lee Curtis.
- By popular request, Margo and I talk about “Grosse Pointe Blank,” starring John Cusack and Minnie Driver, who retweeted our podcast and liked our tweets. NBD.
- We talked about “13 Going on 30,” and we decided we definitely don’t want to be 13 again.
- I wonder why we wanted to talk about “Dick?” It’s not relevant to our current political climate at all. Sigh.
Yeah, so, I’ve got a couple of podcasts to share with you.
Pet Sematary (2019) vs. Pet Sematary (1989) – I’m so dedicated to Dorking Out that I sat through two versions of “Pet Sematary,” but apparently I’m not dedicated enough to sit through “Pet Sematary 2.”
The Devil Wears Prada – I’m probably two or three stomach flus away from my goal weight. Margo and I had so much fun talking about this one and Margo has some great stories.
Oh, and Margo and I were invited to go on my favorite podcast F This Movie to talk about “Revenge of the Nerds.” NBD!
Also, Margo and I have an exciting announcement soon, so stay tuned!
Yeah, so, Margo and I never give, never surrender and talk about 1999’s “Galaxy Quest” on this week’s Dorking Out. This is one of her favorite comedies, and it was super fun to revisit it.
Your assignment if you choose to accept it: Next week’s episode is 1992’s “Buffy the Vampire Slayer.” RIP Luke Perry.
Yeah, so, I love Kevin Costner. I do. I don’t know why, but I’ve got a real soft spot for him.
I was a big fan of “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves” when I saw it in 1991. So, when a listener requested that Margo and I watch it for Dorking Out, I was pretty excited. I thought it would be a really fun rewatch. Alan Rickman is really great in it, but it wasn’t a fun rewatch. However, it was super fun to talk about it with Margo.
And, if you want to do something really awesome for me, you could leave a review on Apple Podcasts. Apparently, reviews really matter to Apple, and all our reviews are from when Smith was still on the show. Please, and thank you!
