Everyone's a comedian...or are they? In the latest episode of Derailed Trains of Thought (your one and only (please?) storytelling podcast), Tim and Nick tackle the hard work of dissecting what makes the audience laugh. (It's a function of the lungs and/or stomach in 86.15% of cases.) 


In the second half, we examine the science fiction German silent film "Metropolis" in Cinema Selections, proving that 80-year-old movies are still cool.

So take a listen and learn that the mediator between the head and the hands is the funny bone!*

*Obtuse joke to be found funny only after listening to the entire podcast. Maybe.

Captain Earth, he's our hero, gonna explain the plot slightly more than zero!
With good and bad points exemplified, he is fighting on the planet's side!

And no, there isn't any cheesy 90's environmentalism. Ah well.

Our short film Rick Jackson's Hollywood is now available below. An amateur filmmaker tries to convince a greedy Hollywood producer to help him make a cheesy movie about a murderous computer virus, a chain smoker hitman, and very bad people. Set in the Con City Universe, the home of nerds, vigilantes, and psychopaths. Enjoy!

Some Jerk, PT, and Paul discuss another Japanese movie that hates women for some reason, why tapeworms are a poor diet aide, and how nudity isn't sexy if it’s in an outhouse.

More episodes can be found on iTunes, Stitcher, or YouTube.

Heavy Duty is a local band that consists of 3 people and one cup.
Now that they have released their EP i wanted to write words in lovely engrish for you to get confused over.

I'm going to write about the EP as a whole instead of putting too much pressure on each of the tracks.
( Don't judge me, i know i'm lazy )

Album Art

What you see is what you get, that is what the Album art is all about.


I really like the the artwork here, it's weird in a good way and it gives you a feel of what kind of music they are going for.

(The red writing is signatures.. because science)

Still, the artwork don't really stand out but it looks good, the best part is in the booklet!
( The Booklet artwork is something i can't add now )

Covered in Blood
This is what god have said
And i will pay for revenge
What ? Hitmen are far too expensive..

The Music

This is no Gunther or Miley Cyrus.
This is Art

This is far more Heavy Metal than GuntherCyrus ( Of course )
The genre differs between the songs so it sounds a bit experimental, but it still has pretty heavy influence from Metallica and Kvelertak.

Metallica at its finest

The songs don't fit too good together but that is really common on EP's as your weird nudist uncle don't really have too many tracks to choose between.
The songs themselves is good but there is some flaws here and there, but all in all it's a good EP.

TrackList

1. Psychical War
2. The Horrible Existence
3. Metal Maniac
4. Covered In Blood
5. Get It On ( Turbonegro Cover ) 

Audio Quality ?

This is where most of the flaws actually are.
One problem is the drums, this album is recorded with electric drums so they sound weirdly tight.
The soundstage is a bit variable, it sounds nice on some tracks and on other it sounds like they mixed the songs for the Oh so popular " Music " headphones.

The most fitting picture i can find.

The Audio Quality is not something you need Hi-Fi speakers to enjoy, the audio compression is noticeable but it's something that is really easy to ignore with this type of music.

Is it worth the money ?

That depends, If you are into this type of music it's a good buy.
This is a good EP for what it is but this is a pretty niche genre of music so it's not for all.

As i am slowing reaching the definitive age point of 16, it makes me realize something...i don't have much longer. You must be thinking, "Wow, what a negative asshole.". True. But, what i mean is this...i love movies. I always have. People often have to think about what they want to be when they turn into an adult. Not me. I've always known. When you were in 1st or 2nd grade, the teachers would always ask you, "What do you want to be when you grow up?". Kids always say the same cliche things and choices; Astronaut, Police officer, firefighter, professional porn star (i hope i dont meet that kid again.), etc. But i always said "director." But back to the starting point, what do i mean by i dont have much left? In my young age, this just might be my naivetivity(fuck you, i dont care if thats not a word.) by there is noooo way in will be able to see all these movies that are CLASSICS! Here is a list of classic movies i havent finished or watched at all: sound of music, mary poppins, to kill a mockingbird, braveheart, caddyshack, tootsie, american grafitti, the matrix, apocalypse now, gone with the wind, the big lebowski, once upon a time in the west, close encounters of the third kind, gone with the wind!, my left foot, wall street, jfk, platoon, some like it hot, north by northwest, rope, and gone with the fuckin wind! I mean JEEZ! thats a lot of movies! The first film i ever saw was apparently the tiger movie (oh shut up, i was 2!). The last film i saw in theatres was saving mr. banks, and the most recent film ive seen was the graduate. but why are we soo constanly persuaded to see these films? out of these 20 films, only half won an oscar (correct me if im wrong) so idk. wait...do we need to see these films?!?! yeah...we dont! ive seen the godfather, citizen kane, laurence of arabia, fight club, pulp fiction, one flew over the cuckoos nest, west side story, and the wizard of oz, and the south park movie! fuck platoon! fuck wall street! fuck the matrix! and fuck gone with the motherfuckin wind!!!!! fuck all you critics, i watch what i want! ill remeber the films i saw, and forget the films i dont! i dont need to see the matrix or gone with the wind to become an acclaimed or great director!(although it might help.) and i dont need to sound of music or mary poppins to make a good musical! (wait..) and i dont need to see apocalypse now or platoon to make a great war movie!, ive seen inglourious basterds and full metal jacket1(huh..).......goddamnit. well...i gotta go...im gonna go spend the next five hours watching gone with the wind...shit.

this was satire.

It's a new year, so it's time for some fireworks! Appropriately enough, Mister Jake discusses the 90s Sylvester Stallone flick The Specialist and applauds the movie for its, in his words, "realistic depiction of how C-4 plastic explosives work". Enjoy!

After so subtly alluding to it in his time travel tutorial, Mister Jake finally takes the time to discuss Timecop, the Jean-Claude Van Damme epic from 1994 about time travel police. Starring Ron Silver as a misunderstood revolutionary who tries to change the world by going back in time and killing a bunch of people in order to get rich and become US President. In other words, a true role model... according to Mister Jake. Enjoy!

Legendary director John Ford directing the equally legendary actor Edward G. Robinson in a gangster comedy...if you know who either of these people are, that's gotta get your attention.  It certainly did mine.  Throw in Robinson in an excellent dual role as both a timid accountant and the ruthless gangster he resembles, and you'd think you'd have comedy gold on your hands.  However, while The Whole Town's Talking isn't a bad movie, the end results are painfully underwhelming, especially if you're expecting lots of laughs from this movie.

Edward G. Robinson plays Arthur Ferguson Jones, a timid clerk at an advertising firm who harbors a secret crush on an attractive co-worker (Jean Arthur).  Robinson also plays a ruthless gangster, "Killer" Mannion, and the comedic aspect of the film comes from Jones being mistaken for Mannion - and Mannion's attempts to take advantage of this.
