TEASER: Stinky Johnny Depp and Cancel Culture



Here’s your teaser for this week’s Frotcast. You can listen to the full episode on Patreon!

DESCRIPTION:

What a week for streaming premium HBO content. Joey Avery is back in the virtual Frotquarters talking about being engaged, podcasts about wives, Johnny Depp’s cancel culture takes, and Princess Diana movies! Also, Matt and Vince watched both Scenes from a Marriage and Malignant. Well we only talk about Malignant at the end for a little but it’s still a good conversation. Real good stuff. Have fun!


512: Long Term Parking, with Chris Cabin of We Hate Movies



Tony and Adriana Come Home

On the penultimate episode of season five of Pod Yourself A Gun, Matt and Vince are joined by writer and podcaster Chris Cabin from the We Hate Movies Podcast to talk about The Sopranos season five episode twelve, “Long Term Parking.”

Chris is our first “affiliated” guest, if you know what I mean. A photo of his father getting arrested ran in the New York Times because Chris comes from a self-described criminal family who ran a book for the Jewish mafia in Pittsburgh. So I’m not saying something bad will happen if you don’t listen to this episode, I’m just saying you have some beautiful ear drums and you should use them while you still have them. God forbid something bad happens to them, but if you listen to the pod, nothing bad will happen to them.

In what is possibly the show’s most gut-wrenching episode, we say goodbye to an animal-printed real one. If you haven’t seen the episode yet, first of all what are you doing reading this? Second, stop reading now if you don’t want it spoiled. RIP to our poor girl Adriana. She was so loyal to her man who was so loyal to his capo that she got ulcerative colitis and nearly had a Jerry Lewis moon face for her own wedding. She deserved better. Though her final moments occurred off screen, so you could choose to be one of those freaks who thinks that if a character’s death is not explicitly shown, the character is not dead. You’re wrong and you’re dumb, but you’re sweet.

At one point in the conversation, someone calls Adam Levine the Disney+ Dave Navarro, and that itself is worth a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: Hitler v The Devil



New Frotcast this week is sans Vince but he will be back next week. Here’s a clip where Jason Webb explains the Hitler vs The Devil subplot of the show Preacher. You can listen to the full episode here, on Patreon! 

Description:

Hey all, Vince is off this week taking care of his little baby but don’t you worry, he will be back next week to talk movies with all of us. In the meantime, Matt brought our favorite southern gentleman, Jason Webb, back on to the pod to talk Vince’s Netflix account, baby stuff, Jason’s hacker/lock-picking skills, and AMC’s Preacher. Also, Matt tries to explain the Matrix to Jason. Enjoy!


511: The Test Dream, with Felix Biederman of Chapo Trap House



Wetwork Dreams

Felix Biederman of the Chapo Trap House podcast joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode twelve, “The Test Dream.”

As the title of the episode suggests, the improbably named Brian Benben would feel right at home, as Tony is Dream-ing On through much of the runtime. Dream sequences are a polarizing topic on this podcast, but even Vince has to agree with Felix that while it may run long, it does feel like an actual stress dream. Teeth are falling out, there’s a thing Tony needs to do that he can’t get done, and wait, who was he just having sex with? Classic dream stuff.

If you’re less interested in what your brain is up to at night, and more interested modern murder techniques, stick around for a digression about the practicality of the garrote as a killing device. Seems hard to use. Like you’d have to practice at home. Imagine that — a little practice garrote next to the Bowflex adjustable dumbbells in that corner of the garage you call the weight room. It’s all just collecting dust and then one day you’re trying to take out a rat and your arms are shaking and you’re all out of position and you think, man, why did I buy all that gear?

What would be your weapon of choice if you were to murder one of us? Let us know in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: I’m a Chinese citizen, I have a joke with regards to your soft drink



Hey all,

Vince had a baby! So this week’s Frotcast is just Matt Lieb and Joe Sinclitico talking movies and Fentanyl deaths. Here is a teaser from our conversation about Fent and anti-Chinese racism. You can listen to the full episode on our Patreon. Become a subscriber NOW! Anyway, here is the description of the full ep:


 

Well, it’s happened. Vince Mancini has an adorable little newborn baby. Unfortunately, that means he had to be in the hospital all day rather than frotcast with me, so this week me and Joe Sinclitico grabbed the reigns and talked movies and junk. We discussed everything from babies, to fentanyl overdoses, to HBO’s Reminiscence by Westworld creator Lisa Joy. Despite the absence of Vince, it is a very good episode that I know you will enjoy.


510: Cold Cuts, with Jay Light of Blockbusting



It’s Just One of Those Pods

On the latest edition of Pod Yourself A Gun, comedian, Good Guy with a Gun, and host of the Blockbusting podcast, Jay Light joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five episode eleven, “Cold Cuts.”

As Matt points out, despite AJ’s absence from it, this is a real AJ of an episode of The Sopranos. It’s like everyone in the episode feels like it’s just one of those days where you don’t want to wake up, everything’s f*cked, and everybody sucks. Sort of the Nu Metal episode. Which makes sense as the gang agrees it’s one of the worst episodes of the series (Low B+).

Matt addresses some of the complaints from the mailbag episode about the autotune, and this week’s Bada-B stories are pure Lieb vocals. Let that be a lesson to all of you – if you pay us enough money, we will do what you ask, but you gotta give us that scharole.

There’s also an argument in there about whether or not Christopher really thinks he could be a male model. Let us know what you think in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts

509: Unidentified Black Males, with Miles Gray of The Daily Zeitgeist



There Was No Abundant Intentionality In Making The Pod

Miles Gray from The Daily Zeitgeist and 420 Day Fiance joins Matt & Vince to break down The Sopranos season five episode nine, “Unidentified Black Males.”

A lot happens in the episode. Finn learns too much about what his new construction site friends are really like, Tony Deals with the fallout from Tony B.’s extracurricular activities, Carmella asks for a divorce, and everyone somehow finds a way to pin the blame on some black guys. The episode is probably best remembered as the one where Vito is topping off a security guard in his car, but every storyline has at least one surprise, a laugh-out-loud joke, and some stellar performances.

The stress of holding on to Vito’s makes Finn think about leaving town, igniting a fight with Meadow that Matt, Vince, and Miles agree is too relatable. The ones  where you’ve fought your way to the logical conclusion of a relationship, but you’re too young to know you can just be alone and be fine, so you double down on commitment like Finn’s hasty proposal that seems more motivated by the idea of going to bed than love. If you’re reading this, you and your boo are in college, and it’s not working, just break up. It will be fine. If you feel sad, listen to this week’s Bada-B story song.

If you’re thinking about breaking up with the pod, instead double down and write a five-star review on Apple Podcasts
