312: Amour Fou, With Matt Christman From Chapo Trap House



Tony Soprano finally realizes he’s a mofo in this week’s Pod Yourself A Gun.

Matt and Vince are joined by Matt Christman from Chapo Trap House to talk about The Sopranos season 3 episode 12, “Amour Fou.” Alternate title: “Suicide by Capo.”

Jackie Jr. makes a move in an attempt to show he’s got balls big enough to get the respect like Scarface, but he should have stayed in watching Basic Instinct with his bro. Listen to the podcast for a non-exhaustive list of all the movies that feature a Sharon Stone nude scene. There are a lot.  As far as I know, she’s never done a seductive dance to a song by Little Steven and the Lost Boys (with lead singer Steve Van Zandt aka Silvio Dante), but Annabella Sciorra does in this episode. She deserves some kind of award for convincingly pretending to love that song. Did Tony’s mom ever dance like that? Is that how realized he was hooking up with his mom?

310: To Save Us All From Satan’s Power, With Rachel Fisher From Hollywood Crime Scene



Tony’s got a list and he’s checking it twice on a very Sopranos Christmas episode.

On this week’s Pod Yourself A Gun, Rachel Fisher, host of the Hollywood Crime Scene podcast, joins Matt and & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season 3 episode 10, “…To Save Us All From Satan’s Power.”

That Jesus guy – he was the real gangster. He had wisemen wandering all across the desert to bring him frankincense, myrrh, and gold, just for being born. Marone! That’s a good earner.

Meanwhile, before the Satriale’s Christmas party, Tony has to schlep all over town finding a new Santa to replace the snitch friend he murdered, taking care of his good-for-nothing sister’s Russian, and transferring some “cannolis.”

In a truly delightful moment on the pod, Rachel explains to Matt and Vince that the cannolis Tony was transferring were not food. We also listen to some voicemails and discuss Jackie Jr’s motorboating technique. It’s a great mother-jumping episode.

309: The Telltale Moozadell, With Samer Kalaf From Defector Media



AJ Soprano has never seen a gutter but he has seen The Matrix.

This week on Pod Yourself A Gun, Samer Kalaf, Managing Editor of Defector Media, joins Matt and Vince to talk about one of their favorite subjects: beautiful little idiot AJ Soprano. Samer sets the bar high for future guests by not only taking notes for episode 3 season 9, “The Telltale Moozadell,” but he’s actually seen all of The Sopranos.

The episode itself is near perfect (solid B+), and features a young Lady Gaga as one of the girls AJ is trying to impress when he goes all Fred Durst and breaks stuff in the school late at night (on his mother’s birthday?!?). The fellas learn from Vince’s wife that unlike young men, not all young women go through a needless destruction phase. Good for them, I guess, but everyone should get to break one window in their life just to feel that power.

Speaking of power, Gloria can’t resist the power of Tony’s raw, animal sexuality, even at the zoo, when he’s surrounded by gorillas with the exact same posture and body type. Can Tony resist the urge to recognize his mother’s traits in Gloria?

308: He Is Risen, With Comedian Jason Webb



Thanksgiving and Jackie Jr are cancelled in the latest Pod Yourself A Gun.

Matt and Vince invite comedian Jason Webb to discuss a conveniently-timed Thanksgiving episode of The Sopranos, and Janice invites a narcoleptic Christian with a ponytail to dinner on episode 3 of season 8 – “He Is Risen.”

The episode reminds us that being in the mob is just as much about petty social slights as it is about doing crimes. There’s lots of gossiping, someone gets their feelings hurt over a declined drink invitation, and someone else gets uninvited from Thanksgiving dinner. So, it’s kind of like Thanksgiving with your family, until someone shits himself to death, and then it’s just like your family.

Naturally, watching the episode led to some conversations about how families in Jason’s neighborhood settle disputes with their stepdads, the chainsaw bear carvings industry, how to get someone so horny they turn into a dairy product, and a Saved by the Bell Mashup song.
