We Have The Power!

23 12 2013

Merry Christmas, bromancers! In Episode XVI, the gents present you with a gift more valuable than gold, myrrh or frankincense – a commentary track for the 1987 classic sci-fi adventure film Masters of the Universe, starring the incomparable Robert Duncan McNeill and Courteney Cox.

Why'd they have to put nipples on the He-Man suit?

Thong underwear on the outside! James Tolkan bustin’ chops! And what director Gary Goddard calls “what was supposed to be the greatest sword fight ever captured on film”!

Very similar to the Japanese synthesizer we record the podcast on.

The film recently received a glorious bluray release but it’s also viewable on the youtubes here.

Happy Holidays, friends. Thanks for making our first year a good one.

Apologies in advance but this is what happens when the grownups leave Josh in charge.

I should never be left unsupervised.

Jaron is traveling the world searching for rare antiquities. The last time I heard from him he had sent me a postcard from 1912 and he was hot on the trail of The Cross of Coronado.

All my friends are handsomer than me…
                                  Josh Alferez, 2013

In addition to bragging about putting his grimy little hands all over the beautiful and talented Alison “Josh’s-Dream-Lady” Brie, he shares some anecdotes about Colin Hanks and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper before joining Josh in a thorough and spoiler laden review of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Can Kyle’s tiny feet fill Jaron’s massive William Shatner sized shoes?

What I would give to know how to use Photoshop right now!

Probably not, but I didn’t want to watch the movie alone so this is what you get Internet.

In a special Episode XIII, LDB welcomes its first guest caster! Friend, colleague and fellow nerd Ryan Fisher pops by Jaron’s apartment for a chat about life as an actor in Toronto.

Teach a man to 'fisher', he'll look this gooood for a lifetime.

The gents also discuss the reasoning behind current TV programming, the possibility of a Y: The Last Man cable show, and spooge all over the new labyrinthine mystery novel S. by Doug Dorst & J.J. Abrams. Well, Josh and Jaron do the spooging. Ryan just kinda watches. :/

Abrams and Dorst’s new page turner. The kind of time-vampire that makes you long to be sucked dry. .
