Andrew isn’t here, Anth is here but in Vegas and all things considered it’s amazing we connected this week at all. But we did, and we talked about Canada, mobile and more movies and TV stuff than usual. Not to mention bringing back a really old segment.

We’ll be here with another with a live episode next Wednesday, so join us for Episode 168.

The Annual Stocking Stuffer Episode

In the tradition of Stocking Stuffer episodes past, the boys all pitch in for a holiday-themed Drop-Boxing Day episode. It’s a shorter episode than most, so grab a cup of holiday cheer and enjoy!

We’ll be back with a live episode next Wednesday, so join us as we ring in 2012 with Episode 167.

(Incidentally, Mike does not do what Anth asked. Not in the least.)

Stay in Touch

The SyFy Network-powered site SciFi Wire has a list of the 20 most anticipated sci-fi movies of 2011.  Some of the ones I’m going to see are:

Captain America: The First Avenger

Yeah, I’m a comic book nerd.  Hopefully this one will do the character more justice than this one did.  Johnny Storm is playing Captain America. Weird.


Another comic book film I’m stoked to see – as long as Thor doesn’t turn out like the one that appeared back in the Hulk movies on television.  I think that guy is on Disney Channel’s Good Luck Charlie now. (Hey, I have a five year old…cut me some slack!)

Green Lantern

This is the one I’ve been waiting for.  Can Ryan Reynolds do Hal Jordan justice?  I think the good old Canadian native is up to the task.

Transformers 3

Could go either way on this.  That said, Megan Fox isn’t acting in this one.

Then again, that also happened in the first two installments.

The Fincher film that Andrew loves reveals its poster on its official site.

The site can also be found by typing in “500millionfriends.com” into your address bar.  We’re waiting with baited breath as to whom buys “500millionenemies.com” to combat it.

Jesse Eisenberg looks more like Michael Cera here than ever before.  I think.

You can even “like” the site.

I’m sure Andrew will keep us posted on further dvelopments…

Here’s some stuff that probably won’t make the show because it’s either too visual, too tough to work in, too late by the time we record or too awesome to hold off on…

DIY Beachfront Retreat

I’m longing for something like this but with only one day of sun then a downpour like we’re getting today, it seems kind of pointless.

Really Trivial News

This kinda slid by us.  The co-creator of Trivial Pursuit, Chris Haney, dies at 59.

Ok, NOW More People Will Watch….Won’t They?

CTV’s MUCHMusic and MTV have partnered with VEVO, purportedly the web’s leading premium music video and entertainment service.  Maybe they’ll start actually showing music videos again.

Hawking Is Here

A Brief History in Time author and renowned physicist Stephen Hawking landed in Canada this weekend to begin A Brief Six-Week Research Stint at the Perimeter Institute in Ontario.

Canada Loses Its Virgin…Music Festivals

Which means no last-minute juggling of lineups or act cancellations – a trademark of Virgin festivals in our home and native land.  Maybe the turmoil will return in 2011…
