Funfiltered Episode #070 - "Egg MacGuffin"
Sometimes, one is in no mood to make sense; in fact, the inferred obligation makes one ornery. This is one of those times. The drench of zest curdles evilly with a forthcoming mantis that defies strict adhesion, precipitating in its wake a tropical malaise whereby underlings systematically tackle totems in the hollow dispensation of minerals. Reluctantly, the meat-eaters vow frailty and condemn their condominiums to infernal heck. That's right, nightjars. Under the auspices of our newly coronated crimson, we balk, balk, BALK at the loophole vandals and the apartheid junkets - slaloming sans context unfurls a rubric whose majesty is sequential. Restrain your bridal curios and dopey pirouettes! Lest you flummox, you quiver in a monster's chagrin... An unhappy monster, indeed, devastated by quotients and insipid whirligigs. So clutch your damned sugar! DOWN with the freckles and foibles! When the donkey darlings gallop once more under painted rain, we will fiddle the light berserk in the nuclear Bethel. Overture. On this here episode, Jordan and I discuss The Full Monty sequel series, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, Mrs. Davis, Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and the fourth and final season of Succession. Over.
Cooked Breakfast Breakdown (Funfiltered)
Extract from Episode 4 of the Funfiltered podcast. Full of beans, a huffy wad of gammon and an abidingly irascible egg (with a toasty slice of Eddie on the side) spar availlessly over the echelons of a full English upon a foundational non-consensus re: which echelons. You say tomato, I say tom-ah-to…
Funfiltered Episode #069 - "The Last Printer in England"
Konnichiwa, chumbuckets. "69" is very much the breakout character of the numbers. It has no right being anything more (or less) than eminently forgettable. Granted, as a year, '69 (19-, that is) conjures some salient iconography - Woodstock, Manson, the Moon... Beyond that, a bit of Bryan Adams and it's hermeneutically juiced. EXCEPT. It also happens to refer to some naughty symmetry. And so, in one fell swoop (or, more accurately, a carnal configuration enacted across forever eventually denominated by the French because who else? and memetically proliferated and consequently practiced throughout an increasingly permissive civilisation), one can't encounter the number "69" without an inner snicker and/or, unconscionably, an outer "weeeeey", typically uttered with a flat lethargy that implies the whole enterprise is merely a tedious social obligation. Which, I daresay and sadthink, it now irreversibly is… Due to the odd number of 1s in its binary form, "69" is regarded by some mathematicians as an "odious number." Lo. Within the ostensible non-sentient fabric of the tapestry of the universe, within this personless poetry, we find judgment. Perhaps... perhaps... THIS is God. Anyway, because it's Ep. 69 (weeeey) and we collectively suffer the arrested development that determines that this is a "special" episode, Eddie came back. Waheeeeey! Non-irony with that one. Having welcomed Mr. Boylett back into our podcast bosom (oh, were it that that was our only bosom), we two D&D players and a sensible third (which is me, Sam, me) get our mitts on topics such as Eddie's recent experience as a best man, Dungeons & Dragons: Honour Among Thieves, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and a novel segment whose recurrence depends on the reliably unfurling Pollution of Culture and wider Fall of Man. That's why we're here, buds. We'll watch that ship sink together. But Jordan and I (and herein Eddie) will pass occasional comment on the gloom if you're not up to it cos the whole thing's just so damn depressing. Have fun!
