I agree with Adam that a Zatanna movie would be very hot.

Also Ben Kingsley is half-Indian and his birth name is Krishna Pandit Bhanji. However, like Omar Sharif, I think he's ethnically ambiguous enough and a good enough actor to play any race. Which is probably why he keeps appearing in terrible movies like The Love Guru and Prince of Persia.

I was so excited when Netflix announced it was adding all of Wonder Years to Instant Streaming, but I was so disgusted by the terrible version of the opening song they used to replace the Joe Cocker version that I haven't been able to stomach watching more than the first episode. The rest of the music is all intact, as aired. The only thing they changed was the opening music. But that Joe Cocker cover of the Beatles' original is so fucking iconic that its replacement seems criminal.

I remember really liking the Young Adventures of Indiana Jones when I was a kid but suspect it doesn't stand the test of time.

I was looking up some info about Young Indiana Jones and found out the belgian actor who was playing his sidekick committed suicide in 2000, sad...

Do the ppl who do the podcast read the forums ... probably not.....

I believe I'm gonna start posting a time stamp of every time some one is eating in the mic. How hard is not to stuff your face for a freaking hour? I'm not even half way through 177 and there is seven instances of some one eating or digging in a bag to eat. I like this podcast but seriously NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM NOM

Yes, they do.

You're new here, so I'm going to continue to let you think you're the first listener to bring up eating on the podcast. Keep mentioning it; I'm sure they'll stop any time now. In a related topic, how long ago was "The Eatbox" coined? Can anyone remember back that far (lord knows I sure can't)?

Hmm, I think it was episode 50. I believe it was an episode with Patrick Joynt on it. Although I think it was joked about before that as well, but that was the episode the joke really came in to play.

Yeah, it's a real reach back. I think someone called it that in an email REAL early. Like, within 20 episodes early.

It's not an issue you're just easily annoyed by a small thing.

The Joker peaked with Batman Beyond's Return of the Joker. The Dark Knight will always be second best

My policy of buying only the cheapest headphones pays big dividends in situations like these, I never notice the eating.

I don't hear it any more either.

As for the Limbaugh Bane/Bain thing, quote in the spoiler:

Spoiler: show
Rush Limbaugh wrote:Have you heard this new movie, the Batman movie, what is it, The Dark Knight Lights Up or whatever the name is. That's right, Dark Knight Rises. Lights Up, same thing. Do you know the name of the villain in this movie? Bane. The villain in The Dark Knight Rises is named Bane, B-a-n-e. What is the name of the venture capital firm that Romney ran and around which there's now this make-believe controversy? Bain. The movie has been in the works for a long time. The release date's been known, summer 2012 for a long time. Do you think that it is accidental that the name of the really vicious fire breathing four eyed whatever it is villain in this movie is named Bane? ... So, anyway, this evil villain in the new Batman movie is named Bane. And there's now a discussion out there as to whether or not this is purposeful and whether or not it will influence voters. It's gonna have a lot of people. This movie, the audience is gonna be huge. A lot of people are gonna see the movie, and it's a lot of brain-dead people, entertainment, the pop culture crowd, and they're gonna hear Bane in the movie and they're gonna associate Bain. The thought is that when they start paying attention to the campaign later in the year, and Obama and the Democrats keep talking about Bain, Romney and Bain, that these people will think back to the Batman movie, "Oh, yeah, I know who that is." (laughing) There are some people who think it'll work. Others think you're really underestimating the American people to think that will work.


He's a dick.

How is Rush Limbaugh even noteworthy at this point for what he says? He'll say anything crass, rude, and outrageous in order to get people to listen to him.

I think it's hilarious how amazingly out of touch he is with the real world. Anyone who's seen the adverts running constantly knows who Bane is. And if they don't, most saw the OLD Batman movies. How long would it take him to do a little research?

Never heard the actual eating but someone is definitely rustling a bag around multiple times during the podcast.

I would understand your comment if it only happened in a couple of podcasts but some one mentioned it started in the 50s and they are in 170s to the point of people naming it the eatbox. I wonder why is it so hard to not eat for 1hr; I understand drinking in the instance of dry mouth. Oh well I've said enough..... Eatbox lol makes me laugh everytime

I don't really need a Deadpool game, as long as I have these youtube videos from nerd conventions:
