Hey Grayskullers! Here we are with our first….another podcast: The Devil and Darren! Joe Friedrich and Darren Kless will be arguing East coast versus the West coast this week. West coast will be enjoying this debate while sipping on umbrellas drinks in flip flops while the East coast will be in multiple layers surrounded by trash and bad attitudes. Next week we will be arguing instagram. Enjoy!
Mike D commented in episode 6 that he did not like the Tom Cruise film “Jerry Maguire”. Inspired by this, in Episode 7 we connect Mike’s comment to discuss how hipster this is. “But Joe,” you say, “how does not liking Tom Cruise and hipsters relate to each other?”. Strange connection between the two, I know, but let me elaborate.
If I were to name all of the movies Tom Cruise has starred in to someone in their 30’s, it’s arguable that they have most likely seen at least half of them. I’d venture a guess that even the younger folk would admit to seeing at least five of his more recent films. So the idea that people must like Tom Cruise is an argument I make based off the fact that a strong majority are watching so many of his movies. People are watching him, so people must love him. A sound argument, right? Then why doesn’t Mike D stop being a douchebag and fall in line?
It’s pretty safe to say poor Tom has had his share of bad press. Whether it be his uncompromising dedication to Scientology (fighting the good fight alongside Dana’s cabbage?), his affinity towards megalomania, or outright odd behavior (cough, Oprah Winfrey “I’m in LOOOOOVE!” cough), I think we tend to intermix our judgment of Tom the actor and Tom the IRL person.
To be fair however, preconceptions we make based on bad press should be tossed out when making judgment on ol’ Tom simply because 99% of us do not have TC in our lives personally. We have him in our lives only because he is in our movies! What is my point? I’m not entirely sure…but originally I believed that to hate Tom cruise is to adopt a hipster’s approach to pop culture; an easy way to go against the grain, if you will. But that turns out to be false.
As I questioned more and more people about this, I found that a lot of them have negative feelings towards TCruise. In fact, the majority of people I spoke to don’t like Tom at all. Armed with this knowledge, it now seems maybe my argument should be that to be hipster IS to love Tom Cruise. Based on my findings that Mr. Cruise is apparently so uncool, any true hipster HAS to. Ha! I got you good you fucker!
Follow the pack or jump on that Vespa towards a screening of Top Gun 2. I’ll see you there, you wide-rimmed-glasses wearing sonofabitch! I have to stop off at the tattoo parlor to touch up my TC armband beforehand, but I’ll see you after for fucking sure!
Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you. Tom Cruise I love you.
….JK. He’s just alright.

Mike D. and Joe were set loose on the Titanfall Beta. This is what happens when you take that ride…
In podcast episode 6 Mike Porcaro mentioned that his “stalker” kept asking for 22 minutes of his time. I was so intrigued by this number that I had to do some research and here is what I found:
According to fitnessmagazine.com you can get “substantial health benefits” from 22 minutes of “moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity”. Boom! Case closed! She either wants to get her “jog” on or get Mike’s “hog” off. Maybe she wants to go rock climbing which translates to cock climbing. Who knows? This seems obvious based off of Mike’s description of his situation, but the number 22 has a deep history. For instance, there are 22 letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Maybe she wants him to go to a synagogue with her. Is she Jewish, Mike? If she isn’t Jewish, maybe she sees a future with you because the traditional Tarot deck has 22 cards in it. Yeah! That could be it …but it still feels like a stretch. Then it hit me…. Netflix! The majority of shows on television are 22 minutes without commercials. Mike Davis even mentioned that The League was 22 minutes in our recent vidcast. She just wants to spend some time watching shows with you. Seems innocent to me, but there are still questions to be asked and I hope we get the answers soon. Keep us posted, Mike.
You thought Colin’s video was scary? Check out this terrorfest! This was the episode of Punky Brewster that scared me as a kid.
This clip was mentioned on our 5th and most recent podcast. I’m not one to really believe in things like this, but you be the judge.
This video was debunked quickly, but it is still entertaining!
