Movie Meltdown - Episode 370
This week we return to our
hangout session during this year's WonderFest. There we
recap Ben and Dave's attempt to qualify for The Guinness World
Records during the festival two years before. And in honor of
that anniversary we do what comes naturally - geek out about
And as we retcon our own childhood, we also mention... your orange snake looks stupid, every time you pulled one out - you were surprised, just bury your feelings, the 20 timers club, send the ambassador to Idaho, we went for the shiny brass ring, help in logs, pro-Emperor/anti-Yoda, living in a shack, the yellow lightsaber, that third rail is right there, but the siren song of fame sung to us, Scotland, ghosts talking to me in the bathroom, Scott Baio, Mad Max, 36 hours and some odd minutes, that is a lot of plates spinning, it was three zombies going "Yea", it was a very polite apocalypse, he's the sad sad broken old man, we weren't on the website anymore, Braveheart, rebooting your R2, little children nerd rage, a pillow case full of action figures, we were in this podcasting game... and we couldn't handle the stress... so we tried for gimmick, some sort of Warwick inside it, I'm a Doctor Who fan... I can retcon like nobody's business, Space Geico, Harry Potter, put on your Nikes and die, that's a load-bearing Falcon wall, bounty hunter brochures, the stranger taken to the extreme, Death Star layout and placement, a debate about what is a webcast, ripping off Diff'rent Strokes, corn planet, from two to four in the morning, they were our pit crew, damn commies, Midi-chlorians, he lived in fear of the lobster boats floating over his head, we were the drifters of the podcast world, down in the comments... nothing but hate, wife pit crew, I learned that the internet is full of very crappy people, rolling around in a stupor of insanity and finding a diagram for life.
"We realized that actually getting the world record was the easy part... all the bureaucracy... all the minutia..."
