Zissou

Zissou lives in Nebraska with his beautiful cat.

  • Abe

    Finally! It’s been too long.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Quality over quantity.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I personally was more excited for the potential Just Chris Just Chris Show.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Chris has officially never seen any movie or TV show I ever bring up.

  • Abe

    Staring Just Chris

  • He just stares the mic?

  • Abe

    I should apologize to everyone. I try and never alter anyone’s work, but The Vegetable Lasagna Show today had literally 40 mins of dead air to start. You could feel the tension of Zissou staring at Christ Just Chris and the psychological meltdown….then the beatings came. I edited that out of the show. So, this episode of VL might not be true to the intent of it’s creator.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    He calls that talking.

  • A psychic podcast, where you just send thoughts to the recorder.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    We’re always breaking new ground here at Vegetable Lasagna Industries.

  • “Some day, son – you’ll see the Pacific…”

  • Abe

    I can’t express how much I love that idea.

  • So, Rope of Silicon is not a bondage site?

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    It’s a beautiful road right now.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Not on the surface.

  • This story reminds me of the “National Review”-incident.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I probably deserved to get banned there, though.

  • Hell – I was the only one who didn’t, I guess

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Peach and I were sort of instigating things in a snarky way but Ronin blew our cover.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    They apparently didn’t appreciate his 50 or so consecutive comments imaginatively incorporating the word “dick” into various film titles.

  • I remember the varying tones of the Chappie trailers. Pretty weird.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    My first instinct is that the studio was looking for another District 9 and tried to morph it into one but maybe that’s just Blomkamp having second thoughts. Or both.

  • Wasn’t there several thousand of those on another hijacked thread?

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Dick comments? We for sure had a few thousand from the night of general mayhem.

  • It was some superhero/comic book-movie site, if I recall

  • I’d rather see a movie about Jawas than the Minion movie

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I want to challenge Mr. Silicon to a podcast duel.

  • Is that his real name?

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Haha no. It’s Brad Brevet.

  • Mr. Silicon sounds cooler.

  • Abe

    You guys used to spam Talkbacker as I recall. Day and night you couldn’t escape your comments. Every article! Every podcast.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Indeed. I wonder how I could pitch this to him without just sounding like a whiny banned commenter.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Finn never saw it coming.

  • Abe

    You want some help? I’ll email him on the issue of community censorship or some nonsense. IAB can moderate.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I would be absolutely on board with that.

  • Well, that was home base – but there’s been some blitz attack thread hijackings in random locations once in a while.

  • How did I get into this?

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    That will sound better than my “I promise this isn’t just a trap to yell at you” approach.

  • Abe

    How did you not?

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Do as you’re told!

  • Abe

    Shoot me an email this evening and we’ll hatch a plan.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I will write that on my hand so I don’t forget.

  • Just hearing the plot description of the 2 True 2 Detective makes it sound like the most random collection of plotlines

  • Abe

    You have a whole staff at your disposal. Moose, Chris, other guy.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    It really is.

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    You’re already more relevant to the conversation than I am.

  • How about a combination of True Detective and Naked&Afraid?

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Sure, why not? I wonder if there will be a season 3.

  • I believe Puck has been abducted, yes.

  • Could be the Fox lawyers

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    Yeah, what’s the deal with episode 2? I listened to episode one but couldn’t get disqus to work at the time to provide a live stream of comments.

  • We ARE recording soon. Puck had/has a bad case of cold

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I’m going to try to avoid all footage of the new X-Files stuff.

  • Hmm. Might be impossible

  • El Porto Del Zissou

    I don’t really watch TV so I’m hopeful.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    No time for this today 🙁
