Attack of the Killer Soundtrack #23 - Attack of the Oscar Nominees 2

This episode we're back to round out the rest of this year's musical Oscar nominees. And along the way we have some pretty interesting movie/music discussions. And as we learn who the Meryl Streep of the best song category is, we also mention... the biggest can of worms ever, squeezing it for show biz juice, Alicia Keys syndrome, Free Bird, wildly exploitative, my attention span in the age of the internet has shot down dramatically, that category was really full this year, the honor of being nominated, Laura Dern, I'm always looking for the palace shaped like a penis, depressingly professional, this is why you don't watch Oprah, I might be making that up, The Aristocats, Rock Steady, Reese Withersppon vs. Julia Stiles, Man in the Moon, none of the disciples are wearing shirts, The Beatles Anthology treatment, Phillip Glass except for normal people, intellectual hip hop that white people like, Sleeping Bag, late John Lennon, I have to spend 85-minutes here looking at the television, Total Eclipse of the Heart, she looks like Anne Hathaway at the beginning of The Princess Diaries, exploiting something serious just to further people's careers, explaining to your where the depth is... because you might miss it, Oprah hates it when Gayle sings along to it, a show about dental hygienists who are best friends, singing your own muzak, I took a picture of him eating soup once, the back end of Abbey Road and the rest get thrown into a pit full of fire and wolves and gorillas with robot heads. 

Spoiler Alert: Mild "Newsroom" spoiler... you have been warned.
