‘Sliver’ and What a Creep Season 11

Yeah, so, on this week’s Dorking Out, Adam Riske from F This Movie joins us to talk about “Sliver.” This means that Margo and I giggled our asses off. This is a really fun one, my friends.

Over at What a Creep, we kicked off season 11 with a trio of creeps, including Blake Bailey, Josh Duggar, and Scott Rudin.

The longest bus story

Yeah, so, one of the most requested movies we got for Dorking Out was “How To Lose a Guy in 10 Days.” I have no idea why, but it was requested repeatedly. Margo and I finally watched it and you can listen riiiiight here.

Over a What a Creep, we talked about Marilyn Manson. Seriously, fuck that guy.

On a happier note, here’s a video of Calvin making up a story about a bus. He tells the best stories.

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.

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 …

A decade under the influence

Yeah, so, it’s been 10 years!

My mighty, mighty good man David and I are celebrating our 10-year wedding anniversary today. So much has happened in those 10 years. We created another human. We really leaned into that whole “in sickness and in health” thing, that’s for sure.

But the one thing hasn’t changed: We still love each other. We’re a team. We’ve always got each other’s back. We rarely argue because we know that our intentions are always good.

We always support each other. He doesn’t give me crap when I buy yet another dress for our already jam-packed closet. And I totally get it when another board game arrives on our doorstep.

“Me: I need to buy this dress with a wiener dog print.”
David: “Yeah, you do!”

David: “I’m going to buy this board game about trolleys that run over people.”
Me: “Duh.”

During these super weird and scary times, I take great comfort in knowing that I have this amazing partner in my life. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank him for no reason.

“Thank you.”
“For what?”

And then the answer is usually:

a) “For loving me.”
b) “For being awesome.”
c) “For being the best … around.
d) All of the above

We celebrate each other’s successes. We console each other when things are crappy. We drink craft beer and watch old movies. We talk about how much we miss baseball and our weekend adventures to breweries. We play Animal Crossing together and go on “dates” to the museum.

But mostly, we laugh a lot. We have a happy life.

Thank you, David, for marrying me.
