Fire Bro-ton Torpe-bros!

25 09 2015

Apologies, listeners, for both the time it’s taken to bring you this new episode and for the hackneyed pun I chose for the title.

It was either this or Bro-stbusters 3: The Br-ath of Khan

Fuck. No!

I think I made the right choice.

Looooooooooooooooong distaaance bromaaaaaaaaaance!

Can’t Get Enough of Your Brobes

18 02 2014

In Episode XVIII, Jalfron announces the winners of the 2013 Golden Brobes, revisits the filmography of acting legend Philip Seymour Hoffman

PSH

RIP Scotty, Lester, Mattress Man, Truman, Gust, Caden and Lancaster, but mostly, Philip.

… Josh illuminates exactly how much Iron Man 3‘s Mandarin was “swing and a miss”, and in honor of St. Valentine the gents pose a philosophical brain teaser loosely related to romantic love. Quite loosely. All that and a bag of this guy’s chips…

Mustache

An actor is only as good as his ability to grow a mustache.

Actor/writer/comedian Tim Hildebrand joins Jaron for an interview courtesy of the mobile unit. (That’s the bag he carries his mic in.)

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?

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.

The Brobbit

20 12 2013

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.

It belongs in a MUSEUM!!!

Kyle “K-Hutch” Hutchison is making his Internet debut on this very Special Edition Episode XV of the LDB Podcast.

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.

Three Hotties and a Gun

4 12 2013

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.

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. .

Bro, It’s a Dark World

21 11 2013


Life’s hard in a city where the mayor smokes crack. As a result, Jaron is jobless and Josh is sleeping under a bridge. Which is why they’re only too happy to chat about the finer points of life over a spot o’ tea. In Episode XII part 1 (that’s right, our first MEGACAST) the gents discuss the art of Saskatoon celebrity Sailor Dan, theorize where Thor 2 and Agents of SHIELD are taking the Marvel cinematic universe, and wax philosophical about the ruins that have become their lives.

Broldly Going Where No Man Has Gone Before

3 05 2013

Jaron has succeeded where all others have failed and has convinced Josh to watch Star Trek.

Check out the newest podcast to hear how it’s been going.

In Episode V the fellas respond to more listener e-mail and discuss the trailers for Pacific Rim and Thor 2.

Listen in awe as they spoil Game of Thrones for any poor bastard not savvy enough to keep up and witness history in the making as Jaron solves the “gay marriage debate”.





Greatest Superhebros

19 04 2013

In Episode IV, J & J discuss a couple new trailers, including the awesome awesomeness of Man of Steel, chew on a comics character so often unable to overcome his inherent silliness, ponder the future of Iron Man (and all things Marvel) now that Downey’s contract is up, and even find time to respond to some… quirky… listener emails.

 





World War Zzzzzzz

5 04 2013

In Episode III, zombie madness ensues! The guys tackle The Walking Dead season finale and the disconcerting film adaptation of the finest zombie book of all time, celebrate Game of Thrones’ return, and dig into Josh’s love life. Can Jaron contain his jealous rage?

… Yes.
