Zissou

Zissou lives in Nebraska with his beautiful cat.

  • Abe

  • Delbert Zissou

  • Wearing body mics in a crowded elevator?

  • The end twist: all the guys in this podcast are holograms

  • I wonder what Fincher’s Steve Jobs woulda been like

  • I hate Two and a Half Men. It’s nothing more than Charlie Sheen acting like Charlie Sheen in every episode. Haven’s seen any episodes from after he left, but I imagine it got even worse

  • One does not speak ill of “The ‘burbs”, goddammit

  • Jeez, this “Beasts of No Nation” sounds like a real feelgood movie

  • Party Bus? We have one of those in my town too, I think. And yeah, I guess it fits like 12-14 people

  • “reverse Mormonism”
    LMAO

  • Tim R.R. Something

    The Sagamanus Lasagna Show.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Oscar bait

  • Vegetable Lasagamanus

  • Tim R.R. Something

    That am better.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Last Sagamanus in Paris

  • It is, isn’t it. Most of the Oscar movies are the ones that make you feel like shit, lol. I guess that’s like life, then

  • Delbert Zissou

    We must be spoiled in Omaha. They have 50ish people generally.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Just Fukunaga doing his thing.

  • Delbert Zissou

    The Suburbs haha

  • Delbert Zissou

    Walden’s dream story here is I think a highlight of this program.

  • It’s like a Seinfeld dream

  • Tim R.R. Something

    He’s Finnish, that’s the record.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Somehow it’s not gratuitous or nihilistic, though, which makes it more watchable than it could be.

  • Delbert Zissou

    I think they have 50 people in Finland.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Will Smith’s epic about NFL brain injuries is sure to be a best picture contender.

  • Delbert Zissou

    All I remember about that trailer is bald Albert Brooks.

  • Space Novels

    I’m melting!!!

  • I wish, sometimes

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Where’s Moose? In Sags’ head garden? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6ik-AA87Uo

  • Delbert Zissou

    Moose will return someday, I’m sure.

  • Space Novels

    That’s true you never hear about Finnish children going hungry.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Me at work most days

  • Tim R.R. Something

    When he’s the time is ripe.

  • Space Novels

    Are you guys drinking and/or smoking grass when you record? Because I can’t square the crabby Zissou commenter with the jolly Zissou podcaster.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Bill Gates head in a box.

  • Delbert Zissou

    I think Boyle had the right energy for it. Unless Fincher would’ve toned down the script more.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    I’ve just been handed a note; “no more Sagamanus jokes”.
    OK.

  • Delbert Zissou

    It had been a long day.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Interestingly it was Sagamanus who handed it to you.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Some days I’m in a bad mood on the show.

  • XD

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Jem is one of the biggest flops of all time, bigger than Heaven’s Gate, Waterworld and the duck billed platypus combined.

  • Delbert Zissou

    How is that even possible? With a $5m budget it must have made $10 so far or something.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    I heard it opened to…ready…$1.3 million. I’ll find a link.

  • Delbert Zissou

    I mean that’s bad but they’ll still probably break even at the end of the day.

  • Space Novels

    Haha

  • Tim R.R. Something

    The flick opened to $1.3 million to become one of the worst debuts of all time for a major studio movie opening in over 2,000 locations. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/jem-holograms-flop-box-office_562e2306e4b0aac0b8fd5609

  • Space Novels

    She’s no Rooney!

  • Delbert Zissou

    Let’s be clear.

  • Space Novels

    Steven Spielberg is a god damn genius.

  • Space Novels

    Is there a third guy??

  • Delbert Zissou

    Me, Chris, and Walden Pond

  • Tim R.R. Something

    “Bill Murray’s “Rock the Kasbah” barely did better in ticket sales, pulling in only $1.5 million from 2,012 theaters, but it also cost three times as much as “Jem” to produce. It’s one of Murray’s worst debuts ever and a low point for Open Road Films. Critics were not fans of the Barry Levinson-directed comedy about a rock manager who finds a new client in Afghanistan.”
    I still wanna see it.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Hopefully one of you guys reviews it soon.

  • Space Novels

  • I just wonder what the hell happened to Bally Levinson

  • And Barry too

  • Space Novels

    It looks fun

  • Delbert Zissou

    Clean air for next week?

  • Space Novels

    Booze?

  • You think it’s “The men who stare at goats” of the 2010’s?

  • Or ooze

  • Space Novels

    Haha

  • Delbert Zissou

    Ooh I think that’s exactly what it’s going to be.

  • Space Novels

    Ooze?

  • Delbert Zissou

    For real. When do you want to record it?

  • Space Novels

    For real “haha”

  • I couldn’t come up with a better response. Sorry. I have a disqus commenter’s block

  • Delbert Zissou

    Everybody wants to be on this show now. Get it while it’s hot!

  • Space Novels

    *peels out of Zissou’s driveway in Corvette*

  • Delbert Zissou

    *sighs longingly*

  • Space Novels

    Try writing by hand then transferring it.

  • Space Novels

    I should have been a pair of ragged claws….

  • Delbert Zissou

    You’ve been out to sea for a long time.

  • Space Novels

    This metaphor has already gotten out of hand and I blame the Modernists.

  • Delbert Zissou

    You’re turning me down then?

  • Space Novels

    No lets do it!

  • Delbert Zissou

    When works for you, sir?

  • What’s the time code for the Jobs review?

  • Delbert Zissou

    As in how many minutes in? Oh man you’re going to make me listen to this thing.

  • See? That’s why I ask.

  • Space Novels

    I may have to put my banker hat on and talk about DARPA and Internet porn though. Anytime will do.

  • Space Novels

    I have Audacity now so I can record things.

  • Space Novels

    How about Friday evening?

  • Delbert Zissou

    Ooh yeah if you record your end and send it to me that will sound better. Does Thursday evening work?

  • Delbert Zissou

    Yeah sometime between 5 and 8ish?

  • Space Novels

    Ok

  • Delbert Zissou

    How about 6?

  • Delbert Zissou

    Feel free to obnoxiously eat dinner during the show.

  • Space Novels

    I will do a reading from one of Dickens short stories, a reading from Mississippi Blood, I will select an article from The Economist to discuss, I will make a few comments about some quotidian details of my daily life and I will also discuss how beautiful Russian women are.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Perfect. 6PM on Friday the 30th! A day to remember!

  • Space Novels

    For the hour.

  • Delbert Zissou

    11:10

  • Tarmac492.1

    That just doesnt look good at all.

  • Delbert Zissou

    We are offering cutting edge current reviews though. So there’s that.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Look in your heart!

  • Can’t shit on that

  • Delbert Zissou

    I can’t die out here in the woods like a dumb animal!

  • You cannot spell Sorkin without “sore”

  • Delbert Zissou

    He probably says the same thing but means “soar”

  • not what I expected from Bridge of Spies

  • Loved Turner and Hooch as a kid, but preferred K9 nonetheless

  • Delbert Zissou

    I suspect I have some sort of hormonal imbalance because I’ve enjoyed a lot of movies this month.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Austria imports all their hearts from Switzerland.

  • KilliK

    .

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Lasagna is always better the next day.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    You should get that checked.

  • CoolHandJuke
