    It’s like Elvis in ’68!

  • Tim R.R. Something

    I can’t believe it’s not butter,better!

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Lay off my blue suede shoes.

  • Delbert Zissou

    We’re pretty jetlagged from the 2 hour drive.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Crossed three corn zones?

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Motel life, so cool. You checked for bed bugs right?

  • Moonriver

    POLKAPOCKALIPTIK! Weird Al can do the soundtrack…

  • Moonriver

    *too much hooch

  • fangs_television
  • Delbert Zissou

    I see Tim took the subtlety out of the featured comment.

  • The Shining? Don’t step too far out of your comfort zone!

  • Crimson Peak crashed outside the US as well.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Gotta play the hits

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Helicopter pig shooting, what could possiblye go wrong?

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Underwhelming? Not enough torture?

  • Tim R.R. Something

    That’s why you can’t have anything nice.

  • I dunno. There was not enough buzz.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Thanks a lot China

  • Delbert Zissou

    The Midwest, folks!

  • Tim R.R. Something
  • Tim R.R. Something

    buzz saw?

  • Moonriver

    Zissou, your accent doesn’t sound like Nebraska.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Forget the SW trailer. THE RETURN OF VLS IS THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Tarmac492.1

    The midwest needs to be, corrected.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Return of VHS?

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Beat that superhero drum again…

  • Tim R.R. Something

    soap box, whatever.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Its prob not scary.

  • Moonriver

    TRUTH!

  • Moonriver

    Especially not for Asia.

  • Moonriver

    Nooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • Moonriver

    Adjust Tracking.
    May I never see that on a screen again.

  • Delbert Zissou

    What is my accent?

  • Delbert Zissou

    It doesn’t really go for scary, interestingly. Just eerie.

  • Sweaty and dressed in Black leather?

  • Don’t forget to rewind your DVD’s before returning them.

  • Sub zero mow plain zero

  • This episode of Vegetable Lasagna was listened to by the NSA

  • Vegetable Lasagna – the movie? Where can I see this?

  • Delbert Zissou

    I see you can hardly have taken care of the business we discussed.

  • Pocapocopalyptic

  • Delbert Zissou

    Walden Pond has an ass shot.

  • Delbert Zissou

    The Adventures of Lube Donavich and Lukas Dumplingcart

  • Okay, scratch that

  • Delbert Zissou

    Haha

  • Bringing a sitcom to a Slasher festival; the new movement of anarchy

  • “It’s no ‘Casablanca’, but it has it’s merits…”
    Lol, that’s high quality critisism there. I think I’ll steal that

  • Crimson Peak tanked here too. The fucking latest Finnish zany road-“comedy” keeps scoring all the B.O. though. Fucking morons, this country inhabits

  • Delbert Zissou

    Crimson Peak is a hard sell. I can see why Jane Eyre with ghosts isn’t a must-see for everyone.

  • I guess the common moviegoer asks “what is ‘Jane Eyre’…?”

  • Can you add a laugh track for the next episode.
    (whoops, kinda channeling Tim there….)

  • Delbert Zissou

    That’s doable. I think we’ve talked about it before.

  • Yeah, it probably wouldn’t work on our x-Files podcast….

  • Delbert Zissou

    Haha VL may be the most suited to get turned into a sell out sitcom.

  • I think we’ll settle to our next episode playing in black&white

  • “Battle of the Five Armies” Extended Editions digital release is today. Expect leaks momentarily

  • Delbert Zissou

    Dwarf/Elf sex scene?

  • I fucking hope not

  • Alan Silvestri was replaced on the first “Mission; Impossible” by Danny Elfman

  • Delbert Zissou

    Really? Silvestri isn’t even that bad. What’s the deal?

  • Well, a lot of times these things have to do with the post-production schedule getting stretched and the composer not being available anymore. Other times the score just doesn’t work.

  • I dunno why he complains, he only watches The Shining, Frances Ha and The Royal Tenenbaums on a loop anyway.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Sir yes sir!

  • Delbert Zissou

    Dee feels about VL the way I feel about superhero movies.

  • There was no Kung Fu in Frances Ha, what a crap

  • I laugh through most of it anyway.

  • ponyboy_360

    My mom has been a Nurse longer than I’ve been alive.
    She’s probably the ONLY Nurse on the planet, who still wears a white uniform.
    White “leggings” & white shoes.
    The reason.
    She has respect for her profession.
    She absolutely HATES people who wear scrubs.
    She always says, she can’t tell a neurosurgeon from a janitor.
    EVERYONE wears those fucking stupid
    Winnie The Shit scrubs, or some derivation of cartoon characters.
    Especially the new crop of Nurses.
    What was my point again?

  • ponyboy_360

    How I feel.
    “Fuck a selfie stick/
    Suck a healthy dick/
    Bitch!”
    Just be glad I don’t post perverted
    K-Pop.

  • Sagamanus

    It’s too tough getting the featured comment on VL. I think you have to know the man. And alas all I know is The Shining.

  • ponyboy_360

    Thanks to my girlfriend.
    Dinner tonight.
    Vegetable Lasagna!
    There’s your featured comment.
    (…)

  • Delbert Zissou

    Tim is dethroned!

  • Delbert Zissou

    Is this your audition?

  • Delbert Zissou

    Haha Winnie The Shit scrubs seem okay if you deal with kids I guess but I see the point. My mom is also a nurse who doesn’t wear scrubs.

  • Delbert Zissou

    Looks good! Original recipe?

  • ponyboy_360
  • ponyboy_360

    Noooo.
    But it was tasty!

  • ponyboy_360

    Ha!
    Naw man.
    It’s been 12 days since I posted.
    I had this conversation with someone this afternoon.
    Thought I drop in & post my thoughts on this.

  • ponyboy_360

    I’ll give you the point for scrubs & kids.
    That’s what my friend brought up.
    Didn’t know your mom was a Nurse.
    That’s cool that our moms represent professionalism.
    THE most noble profession, in my opinion.

  • Ponyboy? Is… Is that you?

  • ponyboy_360

    Yessir.

  • ponyboy_360
  • Delbert Zissou

    I didn’t realize the new brass was showing up today.

    I hope you’re wearing a tie? Oh wait, you are.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Nurses are great. Luckily, I have never had a prolonged hospital stay, but I have been there day in and day out visiting the parents and such. You get to know the nurses because they are always around doing the nitty gritty, the dirty work, the caring, and the doc usually comes in for a brief moment, scribbles on a pad and leaves. No offense to docs, just my observations.

  • Tim R.R. Something
  • Tim R.R. Something

    All you need to know is that these wretches enjoy the lash of the whip.

  • Abe

    The VL rebrand fits with the SN rebranding to attract a younger, hipper crowd.

  • Abe

    Nebraskans can sound like anybody they want. They’re insidious.

  • Younger, hipper, and more feminine we hope.

  • CoolHandJuke

    Gonna choke myself while I listen…

  • Abe

    VL brings the ladies.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    That was no lady…

  • Abe

    It doesn’t matter for the SN!

  • Tim R.R. Something

    “Vegan Lasagna”?

  • Delbert Zissou

    It’s the same show only now it’s about brilliant hacker lesbians solving crimes.

  • Delbert Zissou

    I wouldn’t want it any other way.

  • Delbert Zissou

    VL would enjoy doing WTF-esque plugs if the new boss-men want to throw them at us.

  • ponyboy_360

    What up T!
    Good to hear from you.
    I won’t go into my NUMEROUS hospital stays.
    All related to my back.
    Doctors just dole out medication.
    Nurses are the true heroes.
    I’m glad to see you homie.
    Peace.

  • ponyboy_360

    So.
    The reason I took 12 days off.
    Was because I hate the dojo.
    & all of the losers that post there.
    Someone called me out on franks dojo last night.
    I swore I would never post there.
    I responded.
    Seemed to shut up those people older than me.
    Today.
    Someone named.
    GameRac9765.
    Up-voted me 4 times on a CLOSED
    “Squid” article, from 8 months ago.
    That was when Sloth discovered
    Steve Roy & The Nudel.
    & we all went over to check it out.
    So.
    Someone I/we know, somehow got on that defunct thread, & up-voted me.
    It has to be someone WE ALL KNOW.
    Ironic.
    As that is the sole reason I posted that
    Wiz Khalifa video.
    “No Social Media”.
    It seems I’m the only one who hasn’t changed my account.
    I have NEVER used an alt or ANY of that shit.
    So some freak is playing games.
    The SN’s is where I want to post.
    I know everyone.
    & everyone talks only film, tv, & books.
    My kind of place.
    Plus, people like Ziss, Abe, Puck, IAB, Dee, Dan, Scott, Stalks, Tim & Tarmac…..(apologies to those I left out).
    Are adults, & don’t play fucking childish games.
    I fucking HATE that shit!!!!
    The dojo is a chat room joke.
    I show up & post after 12 days.
    & now I’m gonna take a longer sabbatical.
    “No sweat off my sack”.
    I have books to read & films to watch.
    I will continue to enjoy & listen to my favourite podcast.
    The VL podcast.
    I see Tarmac has a show, I’ll certainly listen to that.
    I have to get into Dan & Abe’s new show.
    Plus, IAB & Puck.
    I will not however, post comments.
    Ziss has my real email, if anyone wants to contact me.
    In regards to anything.
    The email I use on disqus, I’ve never checked once.
    Plus it doesn’t give me notifications on my phone.
    I provided the stupid fucking “Squid”
    article I’m referring to, below.
    To my friends.
    Peace Out.
    To ALL you fucking ADULT TROLLS.
    FUCK OFF BACK TO THE DOJO.
    Where you can feel great about getting
    45 up-votes for saying you farted.
    Or watch perverted K-Pop, posted by
    drunk, lonely losers.
    Out.

  • Meet the new brass, same as the old brass.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Well, I follow Hideo Kojima, Stephen King, and John Carpenter on twitter so it evens itself out.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Snitches get stitches!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    So, being a mumblecore guy, you think you can do it yourself, eh!? Well, why don’t you make your own gin then!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    At least its an ethos.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    NOT ON THE LIST. *Zissou’s bladder screams in agonizing frustration*

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Also, SNL is on so that doesn’t help…………………..unless this was like unfunny SNL? I’m confused, did you find it funny that it was hard to hold it in or………?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Just play the tuba while you’re at it, describing the Chris Farley guy.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Lucas Dumplingcard.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Rolls right off the tongue.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Wait, I can see the comment count increase in real time again!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Gonna check out Moonrise Kingdom.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Unless you hate it……………….in which I WILL WATCH IT.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    No comment.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Aubrey doesn’t like postapocalypse car chases?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Just tell her its…………………a story about redemption then, dammit. And the lead is a multidimensional chick. Jesus.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    NO. Shooting guns from an exploding helicopter.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Antisemitism rants WTF?!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Hey Zissou, just. Just take it easy on the Mike’s Hard Lemonade………………

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Komodo dragons.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    rawr

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Didn’t the guy who made The League also made a mumblecore meta slasher movie?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    ………………………..Who’s Luke Whatshisface?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    CRIMSON PEAK.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    BRIDGE OF SPIES.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    MOTHEFUCKER, YOU WILL BE STANDING MAN.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Well, ain’t you special. Too fancy for Spielberg, I s’pose………

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Sleeper’s cinematography was pretty too………….

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Still need to get on that Paranormal Activity bandwagon.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Anyway, Crimson Peak is an amazing Hammer horror flick.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Fucking Tommy Boy?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I…what?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Man, watching Jessica Chastain as a heroic astronaut and an aloof, wealthy bitch is mood whiplash at its finest. Kinda felt like watching Cloud Atlas again.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Crimson Peak. Fucking love it.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Plus, the fact that they were different genre movies kinda helps too.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    American Ultra will be like that obscure 80’s movie that becomes a cult classic in……………..20 years.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Yeah, you too?! I was kind of embarrassed I enjoyed the Krampus trailer.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    What is it with you and passive aggressive people stuck with each other?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Hard R.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Oh, I’m gonna hold you onto that endorsement of Krampus movie.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Hell, Zissou, lot of folks gonna watch X-Files regardless if its bad or good. Like Star Wars.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    WTF is that second X-Files movie about? You guys are throwing random at me.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    First off, Evil Dead 2 has a bunch of quotes. Second, stop going to the quote alongs in the first place!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Also, quote “No. I will not turn the beat around. I absolutely refuse to.” but replace beat with quote with beat.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Haven’t seen Hail, Caesar! trailer yet. I’ll catch it in theaters. Like I did with The Revenant.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Fucking had to wait an hour and a half for that trailer.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I enjoyed Phantom Menace. So, uh, there’s my take on that.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    1999.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Did Kubrick hate Spartacus? I know he hate that other movie but I forget the title of that one.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Eh………………Spectre?

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    You are dead to me, dammit. BTTF are fucking classics.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I’m still too angry about BTTF.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    And for the record, I was always interested in The Life Aquatic, dammit, when it came out. Mostly because I kept thinking about Ghostbusters because of Bill Murray.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    MUFFIN MAN. BURNED INTO MY MIND FOREVER.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    OUTSTANDING PODS RIGHT UP UNTIL THE THIRD ACT TOOK A U-TURN.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    I didn’t want to type out the first guy because I did not know how to spell it.
