Zissou

Zissou lives in Nebraska with his beautiful cat.

    The clear winner.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Apparently Chris is on board.

  • Abe
  • Abe

    The conversation sounds classified now.

  • Infinite Zissou

    As in more class or not for the general public?

  • Abe

    Secret missions in Kenya

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’ll pretend it was the first.

  • Abe

    The 16 minute mark is the darkest moment in Veggie Lasagna history.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Walden’s hiatus material wasn’t quite what I was expecting it to be.

  • Infinite Zissou
  • Abe

    No shit!

  • Abe

    Smoke ’em if you got ’em

  • Infinite Zissou
  • Abe

    I’ve paused at 21:52. The way the show has been going do I want to hear about the quinceanera?

  • Infinite Zissou

    Hahaha we’re keeping you on your toes this week.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Everything ties together in a satisfactory way at the end I’d say.

  • Abe

    The SNs are already on board with not having sex today.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    This week on Vegetable Lasagna https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MMUQckEa_ME

  • Tim R.R. Something

    The Vegetable Lasagna Show is, literally, unwatchable.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Not even with themselves? Because let’s be honest, that’s probably their only hope.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    He went to the mid east and saw a man fucking a goat- thank you for your insight Mr. Trump.

  • Abe

    I don’t understand why I watched that whole thing.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    people like animals.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Of course you’d say that.

  • Infinite Zissou

    If you don’t think of us as sympathetic characters I think this episode turned out pretty well.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Still my favorite looking movie ever, even with her in it.

  • (Reads the previous comments)
    o_O Do I dare to enter this plunge into the underworld…?

  • Infinite Zissou

    We’re going for gasps.

  • Tarmac492.1

    If life were Stephen King novels you could have Trump as Greg Stillson and Hillary as Annie Wilkes. You’re fired you fat bitch!!!
    “Fuck you, you Dirty Bird!!!!”

  • All right. I gotta make some dinner first. The stuff that Gordon Ramsay’s nightmares are made of.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Do we think Crimson Peak will be good?

  • Infinite Zissou

    I assume Bridge of Spies will be a sappy Spielberg movie and the Coens never seem to really care about their writer for hire jobs anyway.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Hopefully, it will be as funny as A Serious Man.

  • Infinite Zissou

    The Goy’s Teeth is one of my favorite things ever.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Spectre? I don’t know. Hans Landa is Bond’s brother and wants to kill him or something?

  • Tarmac492.1

    I dont. He is a talented director, but he has never directed anything that scared me in the least. It might be wonderful and beautiful like Pan, but he couldnt generate a scare if he told me I had mad cow’s disease. Mimic was not scary.

  • I do.

  • Infinite Zissou

    The Martian is a cool pitch but it looks a little. . .sassy for my taste.

  • Infinite Zissou

    In the Heart of the Sea would sound cool if it wasn’t a Ron Howard movie.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Maybe I need a rewatch. It will never be Raising Arizona.

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’m trying to get excited about new movies here but it’s getting difficult.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Never tried to be. Did you like Inside Llewyn Davis?

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’m hopeful. Great cast and setting.

  • Infinite Zissou

    I got scared about 5 minutes into Pacific Rim when I realized I’d made a huge mistake buying that ticket.

  • I named it my most anticipated film of this year in our podcast last december or so. I also predicted that Ant-Man would not be as much a box-office juggernaut as the previous Marvel Films(and it wasn’t) and that the Poltergeist remake would suck(which it did).

  • Infinite Zissou

    Oh god imagine if Aaron Sorkin wrote The Martian.

  • Tarmac492.1

    That sounds like those scary dreams I have about getting fired. I hate corporate life, but the thought of them axing me is unsettling.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Haha I still have dreams about college sometimes where I forgot about one of the classes I was enrolled in until way too far into the semester to do anything about it. Nerdy nightmares.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I predict I dont like it as much as Knowles, but I am hoping it is good. I just dont get his “horror” moniker.

  • We try to not think about Knowles much

  • Tarmac492.1

    Havent gotten around to that one, as yet. Although my friend loved it. The Same friend who thinks You. Me and Dupree(very funny on a rewatch) is high brow humor. He also hated No Country for Old Men. If it is like Oh Brother, I iwll be happy.

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’d say it’s more in the vein of Barton Fink and A Serious Man. Maybe a little more straightforward though.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Rewatched Stardust Memories the other day. When are we doing that Woody Allen retrospective thingy?

  • Canyonerooooo…..

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’d totally be excited for Steve Jobs if Fincher made it with Bale. Even though we all know exactly how that movie is going to go.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Never forget where you came from–for better or worse. Many lessons can be learned.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I liked Barton Fink. I need to write in one of them backlot cottages. Lots of the deliveries of whiskey and escorts at the security gate.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Followed by a Hal Hartley one? I feel I need a rewatch of his works.

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’m cool with that but it’ll have to wait like 5 years if we’re doing one Woody movie a month.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I kind of like Howard as a Director. Nothing flashy but gets the job done. A little overrated, yes. I dont think worthy of the JJ type hate. A Beautiful Mind was lost on me, however. Although, I think anything that might require extra artistic flourishes should be left to others and not him. Agreed.

  • 24/7. 365 days a year.

  • I think the Ellen Page-issue is kinda off the table for guys at this point

  • Infinite Zissou

    Don’t tell Chris that.

  • Does he read these?

  • Infinite Zissou

    Every week he claims he plans to.

  • Who the hell is Bernie Sanders?

  • Abe

    President Trump’s last challenger.

  • Ah. I’ll compartmentalize that into my “never mind”-file then

  • Abe

    Trump will be your president one day too.

  • Abe

    I was surprised that’s where the conversation went instantly. Her?

  • Abe

    Overrated.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Chris has had an off-stage crush on her for many years. It was for him.

  • Tinder in Middle East?
    How in the hell would that work?

  • No, wait – Mexico?

    Where in the hell was he exactly…?

  • Infinite Zissou

    Unlike The Happening, the acting in The Visit is actually great all around even when the rest of the movie isn’t.

  • I dunno – I think the plastic plant is doing a helluva job

  • So, “Non-Paranormal Activity”, then.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Just some crazy old folks.

  • “Bubba-Ho-Tep” FTW

  • Oh, “Lisey’s Story” and “Duma Key” are both still waiting for me. I read “Revival” and “Joyland” almost back to back earlier this year and had to jump into something totally different for a while…

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’ve heard Joyland was the better of the two. Revival was alright.

  • They have some thin connections actually….if I recall, the “preacher” in Revival held his sideshow in Joyland for a while or at least mentioned it.

  • ….and it turns to full anarchy in the end.
    Next week – “Vegetable Lasagna occupies The Capitol”?

  • Abe
  • Great headline.

  • I have two hooks as hands.

  • KilliK

    yea, whatever. show yer titts.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Apparently, actors’ lives are not much better than ours if they have to watch dumb, stupid debates that have no bearing on their lives. We love Emily as an actress and I am sure she became a citizen because she loves the money that Americans put in her bank account–a would bet quite a few are repubs. However, I am sure it was meant as some sort of a joke. Neither side knows how to laugh at themselves anymore–one of the biggest problems with the entire, cunt-fucking world!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    This isnt exciting me as much as it should be. Uggh, stop dressing like dudes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    I really feel I could cause such an epic, irreparable havoc at one of these extravagant parties if there was an open bar and I could just say what is on my mind.

  • I think so too
    XD

  • Zed

    Her husband is American. I don’t think the remark was meant to razz a particular group or ideology. More like a swipe at the demented, dystopian circus that is American politics.

  • Zed

    I didn’t know Tom Cruise had a sister.

  • Zed

    ..

  • Tarmac492.1

    A Spielberg Film written by the Coen Bros will look great on them posters.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I dont feel I have anything to add to this. Probably a good thing.

  • Tarmac492.1

    seen her down at the bar a few times. Comes in around noon smelling of old men and broken dreams.

  • Tarmac492.1

    rewatched Smoke the other day on Netflix. Classic mid nineties indie. Fuck you IFC!!!! I am a spurned lover!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Minecraft Rain

    Emily Blunt net worth: $16 million

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Dude, you really hate eating apples that much?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I guess attractive people look better smoking than eating an apple.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Before she starts coughing up phlegm.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Too late, it’s been made sexual, Zissou. You bring in the Cubans, it gets sexual.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Oh hey, the 90’s called, they want their catchphrase back.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    WHO THE FUCK IS LIZZIE? WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU MENTIONING STRANGERS, MAN? EVEN THOUGH THEY’RE YOUR FRIENDS WHO YOU’VE KNOWN FOR A LONG TIME AND I’M FLIPPING OUT FOR NO REASON.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Bernie Sanders!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Jesus, I might as well choose getting a rusty nail pounded into my nuts or gouging my eyes out with a rusty spoon with this election.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Yeah, everybody loves reading articles they find on Facebook.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    That shit never gets annoying.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Hold up, getting some cereal here.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Great, so we get to choose either a plutocrat or a commie….

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    How do you know she’s not a Soviet spy, Zissou?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    He’s a smart businessman.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    You heard it here, folks. He’s a smart businessman.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Any minute, we should hear why we should vote for Bernie Sanders.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Middle East?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Felt threatened in certain locations?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Social activism group=becoming a social activist to hit on girls.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Dude having sex with goats. Nothing to see here. Move along, sir.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Oh Gawd, let’s dive into Walden’s Tinder life.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Unicorns.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Technically a magical pony but I still think it applies.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Feminist? Great, just mention it so the site can get assaulted by Tumblr users.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Thank you, Walden, for clearing up that I’m a Mexican Hispanic.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Nah, you’re right, Zissou, it’s fifteen.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    That is pretty racist…but I’ve been to a party like that, so it’s okay.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    The pigs in Mexico are the size of bears and they will hunt you down and eat you.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I could be lying. But you should take this at face value anyway.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    The mythical baby. A bedtime story for adults, warning you to keep on your fucking condom.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Ahem. Children of Men?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Also, have you seen how Willard, Peach, Franks, Booger, and Sloth act when they don’t get laid? That’s why people need to get laid.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Now if everybody got a vasectomy, I think you’d be on to something.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Also, screw pandas. Sitting there, chewing on bamboos….screw them.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Man, I want some sushi now.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Fucking include The Last Airbender. It counts.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Jelly side down.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I’m gonna put my earmuffs on for a bit.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Huh, so it’s okay which is fucking fantastic compared to the things he put out recently. Hell, I even liked Wayward Pines. I kinda wanna recommend it but I dunno if you’d like it or not. It’s short though.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    John Dies at the End is cool but the sequel is sooooooooooooo good. You might like it better.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    First time I ever saw Paul Giamatti was in Big Fat Liar.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Don’t judge me.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    This Book Is Full of Spiders. Seriously, Dude, Don’t Touch It is worth a read. Much more tighter and the villain is so great.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Bubba Ho-Tep is such a fucking classic.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    NEXT.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    That ending was lame. Next. What a lame ending.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    The Mist….I LOVE HAPPY ENDINGS.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Speaking of happy endings, my Mom and Step-dad watched Gone Girl all the way to the end. The part where the dude’s throat is slit while the music drills into your mind, I was like popping my head into the room and giving my Mom an evil smile. After it finished up, I called from the other room and told em in a sing songy voice that I love happy endings.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I FUCKING LOVE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Christine?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    The Langoliers scared the shit outta me when I was a kid. Yeah, bad CGI gorilla testicles with teeth will scare a kid if he doesn’t know any better.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Salem’s Lot?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Going Godwin by dropping Mein Kampf in there.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Bernie would stack the rich on top of each other like logs of wood? Jesus, that wasn’t dark at all, Ronin………………..

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Cheeseballs.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I got nothing. Cheeseballs.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Taylor Swift couldn’t be ironic even if she tried.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Or post-modern.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Meanwhile Alanis struggles to define irony.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    That’s not dated at all!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Remodernism?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Spaceballs is amazing, Goddammit.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    No, they aren’t kinda just, Zissou. They are.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Okay, the Dracula spoof might…………………………………eh.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Watched Dogma for the first time. Fucking love it.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Still think Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is the shit.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Vin Diesel is…………………………….CITIZEN KANE.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    What the shit, man, you hate Citizen Kane?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Jesus.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    That’s a fucking masterpiece.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Forget it, I tried asking my friends what their favorite bands were and they were like “we don’t got a favorite band, dude, we just like most of the grunge bands.”

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    GODWIN AGAIN.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Is it any different than what Trump is offering?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Gots no problem with that. *sleazy smile spreads across face*

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I regret upvoting this.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Got scared that I made a mistake after watching two minutes of Barton Fink. Ended up being justified.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Unsympathetic comedy protagonists?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    America’s last hope………………even if I don’t want him.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Try planet Namek.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    The plant shoulda been nominated for an Oscar at least.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Awesome pods and good to hear ya again, Walden. *waves at Chris while a dumb grin is plastered over face* Ellen Page already has somebody. *runs away before Zissou hits him with a roll of newspaper*

  • Infinite Zissou

    Hahahaha

  • Infinite Zissou

    Only when I’m not watching it. I’m mesmerized every time it’s on.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Women’s intuition

  • Infinite Zissou

    Cereal and hard liquor are recommended when listening to the show.

  • Infinite Zissou

    The jerk store called.

  • Infinite Zissou

    I’m sitting here at 6:30AM giggling at all of these comments.

  • Sounds like StudioHEAD material to me

  • Tarmac492.1

    Quote for the ages. I approve.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I think mine was private parts–in which he was a blast!! Then the small role in Saving Private Ryan.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Tired of politicians offering shit to me. Want them to leave me alone as much as possible so I can live my life and. maybe, succeed.

  • Tarmac492.1

    will listen to this later in the week while I shit out a delayed article. My job has that bathroom door locked for now. It might get messy.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I think it is his best. I really enjoyed Red State, as well.

  • Infinite Zissou

    Did you see Tusk?

  • Infinite Zissou

    Apparently he’s in Mighty Aphrodite but I’ve never seen any evidence of it.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Nope. I saw the gif Puck replied to me with and I found it sad and disturbing. I think i would give it a shot. I think his fortunes lie in the low budget horror genre.

  • Tarmac492.1

    He is also in Donnie Brasco.

  • Infinite Zissou

    When that movie takes itself seriously it’s very effectively disturbing and great. There’s 40-50 minutes of a great horror movie in there that I still think about. Then he throws in a bunch of slapstick Johnny Depp stuff that I’ve tried harder to forget ever since.

  • Infinite Zissou

    I saw that movie. I found it far fetched that he didn’t notice his hands were blue.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Frustrating, huh? I heard him talking about getting Depp for that on Opie and Jim Norton, i think. Kind of sounded like he was so thrilled Depp would do it he just threw him in. Two self-important fucktards. Although, I am looking forward to Black Mass. That was a great book.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Shit, no! Free Shit: YES!

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Soon you’ll be knee deep in it.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Buddha

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Man, he was way more likeable in Private Parts than the friggin’ lead. And I definitely remember that part in Ryan.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    My work is done here.

  • Tarmac492.1

    In PP, I loved his “YOU’RE THE MOTHERFUCKING ANTICHRIST!!!”

  • Flying Spaghetti Monster
