[Unlocked] Frotcast 488 – Venom Let There Be Kidney Ladies with Zack Chapaloni



Hey all,

As you are no doubt aware, we are currently prepping for season 6a of Pod Yourself A Gun, and so while you are waiting we figured we should attempt to coax you into subscribing to the Filmdrunk Frotcast! This episode is available in the free feed but there are also bonus episodes every week on our Patreon. So please sub to the free Filmdrunk Frotcast feed wherever you get your pods and then please sub to the Patreon. You’ll love it!

—–

Time for your weekly dose of content slop from your favorite “movie” podcast, the Filmdrunk Frotcast. This week, Matt and Vince welcome comedian Zack Chapaloni back to the Frot to talk about that New York Times Magazine piece about the lady who donated a kidney and was mad that her writer friends didn’t congratulate her enough on Facebook and then sued one of them. It’s an amazing story. Also, the boys talk about Venom: Let There Be Carnage which is a movie in which a gay-coded slime monster comes out of the closet only to realize everything he ever wanted was right under his alien smelling organ the whole time. Finally, Matt has a very important message for all progressive organizers out there.


513: All Due Respect, with David J Roth from The Distraction



Do You Believe Sopranos Bus Tour

For the final episode of Pod Yourself A Gun season five, writer, podcaster and listener-requested returning guest David J. Roth from Defector Media and The Distraction Podcast chats with Matt and Vince about The Sopranos season five episode thirteen, “All Due Respect.”

Somehow during David’s first appearance, we skipped over David’s experience applying for a job as a Sopranos bus tour guide in New Jersey. He didn’t get the job, which he seems fine with, but that’s a real Sliding Doors moment. He probably lies awake on the nights when running a successful subscription-based sports blog feels hard and wonders how different his life would be if he had spent more of his twenties riding a bus to and from Satin Dolls (the real life strip club used for shooting the Bada Bing scenes).

David also famously taught Matt how to use autotune, so a significant portion of the audience might be mad at him, but this week’s Cher inspired Bada-B song is, to quote David, “A triumph.”

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.

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.

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

506: Sentimental Education, with Anna Hossnieh from Ethnically Ambiguous



Tony B. throwing it all away

On the newest edition of PYAG, Anna Hossnieh from the Ethnically Ambiguous podcast and Deckheads on Twitch joins Matt & Vince to talk about The Sopranos season five, episode six “Sentimental Education.”

The episode, penned by Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner, feels personal. Everyone thinks AJ’s teacher, Mr. Wegler, is gay because he reads stuff like Madam Bovary, so Weiner is like, oh yeah? Well this guy everyone thinks is gay just because he likes literature? Guess what, he’s shtupping your wife, Tony.

Also Tony B. throws his fresh start away for twelve thousand dollars and Anna points out that Carmela’s view of AJ’s intelligence is so low that she’s worried he won’t get into Arizona State. Take that, Sun Devils, you’re AJ-level dumb.

505: Irregular Around The Margins, with PFT Commenter of Pardon My Take



Tony please don’t cuck me just because you can 

Writer and podcaster PFT Commenter from the Pardon My Take podcast joins Matt & Vince to teach you how to get a 2nd slice at The House of Prime Rib and also talk about The Sopranos season five episode five “Irregular Around the Margins.”

If you’re worried about spoilers, first of all, I’m surprised you’re still listening, but skip the first seven minutes. There, you’ve been warned.

Adriana’s got stress-induced IBS because of the war in the Middle East and Christopher is not a sympathetic partner. As pointed out in the podcast, Christoper is a collection of bad boyfriend cliches, which is maybe why everyone believed that she would hook up with Tony. It really looked like they were going to do it, if they hadn’t been in that car accident. This has the guys wondering, is it possible for two people to go on a late night coke run platonically? That conversation dovetails into a surprisingly detailed discussion of the attractiveness of every Flinstones character (they’re all pretty hot).

Who is the hottest Flintstones character? Tell us in a five-star review on Apple Podcasts.

TEASER: Lumcoin, a new crytpo



Hey all,

The following is a teaser for Frotcast 481, available right now on our Patreon. Join now!

Description:

It’s just one of those days. Or three.

Woodstock 99 will forever go down in history as one of the biggest concert disasters in history and the new HBO Max documentary about it does absolutely nothing to dispel that myth. On this week’s Frotcast, Matt and Vince welcome back Frotcast favorite Joey Devine (from Roundball Rock) to discuss what they got wrong in the new documentary, and how at this point we need to stop blaming Fred Durst for everything.

We also talk about Spike Lee’s crypto commercial, different types of sandals, and some other stuff.


504: All Happy Families, with Tanner Johnson of DuckTales



You either die an AJ or live long enough to see yourself become a Janice.

On the latest Pod Yourself a Gun, writer and director Tanner Johnson from the new DuckTales series joins Matt and Vince to talk about season five episode four of The Sopranos, “All Happy Families.”

Your second and third favorite numetal meatheads go in depth on your favorite nu metal meathead, AJ Soprano. Written by Toni Kalem, the same Toni Kalem who plays Angie Bonpensiero, this episode is peak AJ. He goes to a Mudvayne concert, does some fat bong rips, lies to his parents, brags about being “learning disabled,” and gets mad at his mom about drums. He does not, however do any poppers or have weird sex.

We are also introduced to Tony Blundetto’s weird twin children who he managed to father while in prison. We learn that Tone somehow snuck his cousin’s seed out of the clink. As noted during the pod, this likely means that someone had to keister a Tony B. load to get it past security. Love to see dudes helping dudes.

503: Where’s Johnny? with Paco Romane from Sup Doc



The makings of a varsity podcaster

Comedian, writer, and actor Paco Romane from the Sup Doc podcast  takes a break from his eighth rewatch of the Sopranos to join Matt and Vince for a conversation about season five episode three, “Where’s Johnny?”

This episode, unlike the marinara Janice is buying from Vesuvio and passing off as her own, is full of beef. Johnny Sac and Little Carmine have beef over who collects gambling debts, Feech and Paulie are beefing over gardener territories, and Tony and Junior are beefing over Tony’s athletic prowess.  Junior says it was Tony’s small hands that kept him from being a varsity athlete, but I think he was always winded from all the nose whistling.

Near the end of the episode you’ll hear as Vince experiences the great Fresno earthquake of 2021. Sort of felt like the earth’s way of saying it was time to wrap it up.
