6b03: Remember When, with Dave Schilling



Remember when Lin Manuel Miranda was on The Sopranos?

Remember when writer and LA Times Style columnist Dave Schilling was on the pod during season two to talk about “Knights In White Satin Armor?” Remember how great that was? This week on the pod, Matt and Vince welcome Dave back for a conversation about The Sopranos season 6a, episode 3, “Remember When.”

Remember when Richie Aprile ran Beansy over? Well despite pooping in a bag for the rest of his life (to Paulie’s horror), Paulie and Tony find him in Florida, living a pretty good life. After Tony’s first body becomes unburied, he and Paulie bounce to the Panhandle State to lay low for a while. While on their little vacation, Tony is embarrassed to remember how cool he used to think Paulie was, while Paulie can’t stop remembering what happened to Big Pussy the last time he was on a boat with Tony.

Remember when Tony says, “‘Remember when’ is the lowest form of conversation?” That was this episode. The famous clip from the Remember When Machine segment bumper. During the segment, Dave, Matt, & Vince remember when Tila Tequila was a budding triple threat, but they do not remember any of the other early social media stars listed in the New York Post’s “Nine Hottest Celebs on the Web” article from 2007.  Remember print media?

TEASER: In The Heights, and the depths of Batman’s sex life



Hey all,

On this week’s frotcast (which you can get on the Filmdrunk Frotcast free feed or on the Patreon feed), we had Francesca Fiorentini (MSNBC, National Geographic, TYT) on the pod to talk Min Manuel Miranda’s In The Heights and other things. This teaser is less about the musical, and more about Justin Halpern’s recent story in Variety about Batman’s sex life.

Full ep description:

Yo what up bitch? This is LA Matt! Flap Flap Flap, In The Heights with dat HBOMAX. This week, we got Frotcast Lin Manuel correspondent Francesca Fiorentini in the home studio podding right next to her future husband. We talk about a lot of things in this one, like Halpern’s variety interview where he reveals that he was told “batman doesn’t eat pussy,” as well as Vince’s oral history of Tom Green’s bizarre 2001 movie Freddie Got Fingered. We also discuss Hilaria and Alec Baldwin’s brand new podcast about mental health. Finally, we do our official Frotcast review of In The Heights, a musical that makes Westside Story look authentic. It’s a fun one.
