What's that opening bit from?

OMG David Bowie is in the Man Who Fell to Earth and he looks like Voldemort.

The ballad of Bilbo Baggins always makes me laugh, it's so bad.

DOOM!

Tim, congratulations on 100 episodes of making distracting noises with your microphone, being baffled on how to download torrents, and making sure the black man is hated for at least another 400 years.

Courtney,

I got it from an audio/comic book called "The Story of Dr. Doom". On the flip side of the same record is "The Story of Iron Man." That was to balance the corniness of Doom's medieval armor and bombast with the story of a guy in a cool armor suit.

pyrothemaniac said...

Oh boy, were those two stories bad.
But at least Doom had an accent, even if it was some kind of weird German/French hybrid.

Coincidentally, I saw this story of Dr. Doom facing Luke Cage. Hilarity does ensue.

This is for Trenchcoat:

Info on Nudity from Kirsten Dunst in All Good Things

"Saw a screener tonite, if you didn't already know, there's a nice long shot of her tits, full-on, in the film (shower scene, she gets in to 'comfort' her hubbie)."

My word verification was "gorized." I don't think that's a word, but it should be.

Joker's good, but he's been over done. Come on, don't you think after the thousands of people he has killed in Gotham, a police officer or two wouldn't try to kill him or a doctor would let him die. Or the people would have a good old fashion lynching. In a state with the Joker, I think the death penalty for the insane would be okayed by public support. Doom can claim diplomatic immunity and he usually only kills people in his home country where he is the law.

I never liked when they made J'onn a conehead back in 1988, but I liked the idea that his bottom half is just a tail.

Cheney is no Lex Luthor, Lex is about science, evil mad science, but SCIENCE! Cheney is just about making money and bullying everyone around.

Courtney, ask your mom if your brother can play with the ghost of Michael Jackson, if she says yes, say to your brother, "you heard her." and have him walk slowly to his room taking off his clothes, maybe mumbling, "but he wants to touch me funny.".

North Korea imprisoning American reporters? No problem, send in Clinton, he gets the bitches.

Dazzler can beat Doom. She starts gliding around on her skates, Doom remembers Ironman has roller skates on his suit, Doom laughs so hard his eyes cry, and he can't see. Dazzler beats him cause he can't see out of his helmet.

Of course Doom has no accent, that's how perfect Doom is.

Jack Nicholson wasn't the bad guy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. I didn't know Tim and Kingsley played orderlies in that flick.

Tony Stark is an ass, he hired the guy who killed his employee and "best friend's" girlfriend.

Thor smashed Stark because of copy rights infringements, Tony should understand that, see Armor Wars.

Congratulations to Xantes for winning the unannounced "Most Disturbing Post in the Thread" contest with his Courtney/Courtney's brother/Michael Jackson scenario.

And Vichus, Kirsten Dunst would be hot if she just reverted back to her Interview with the Vampire twelve-year old self, before she hit puberty and everything went horribly wrong.

Good point.

LOL

HA!

Nice choice of music for Trench Coat. Very appropriate.

Yes, thank you. Vader is such a lame villain. His appearance is uninspired and his characterization is generic as hell. If he was created in today's age , nobody would even notice him.

I agree with Trench Coat, those villagers totally wanted to bang Doom's mom when she was dancing. She knew what she was doing. What a tease.

On the 2nd page of the issue, there's a couple of panels at the bottom that illustrate
how Doom had a thing for his mom. He's practically straddling her and looking into her eyes with lust, while she embraces him with open arms. I was almost certain T Mafia would comment on this but surprisingly he didn't.

The Fergie bashing was pretty funny, especially how quick Trench Coat was to state "That's A Man!" It was almost instinctual.

There are early rumblings that a Fantastic Four reboot is a possibility. Hollywood gets a chance to atone for the FF movies Tim Story shat out. Maybe this time Dr. Doom would actually be a threat.


Every now and then T Mafia drops his guard and shows his true colors:

"Mark Waid had Dr. Doom find her [Valeria] as an adult and then he kills her, and gains powers from demons from him sacrificing her life to them. And that is such bullshit cause I don't care how much Doom wants revenge on the FF, he's not gonna kill Valeria." - TCM

"He made a new mask from her skin. That's how fucked up the story was. That was wrong." - TCM

"They're splashing in the water and fake fighting and he's like "No one dunks Von Doom and lives to tell the tale!" This is cute." - TCM

Of course he instantly falls back on his perverse tendencies:

TCM - You know he's gotta be giving it to her. Look at the big smile on her face.
Courtney - They're fifteen!
TCM - Exactly.


There was a recent mini series called Dr. Doom & The Masters of Evil. Haven't read it, so I don't know if it's any good. Did anybody read Ultimatum 5? Apparently, Doom gets his head crushed in by The Thing at the end of the issue.

LOL @ Courtney making fun of her brother
"My brother's 11 and I had to explain to him the difference between a lion and a lioness. He's like "What do you call a girl lion"? Idiot."

Hugh Jackman recently stated that Wolverine 2 is in pre-production. It's gonna be taking place predominantly in Japan. Seems like they're doing the samurai thing.

Almost all cool Star Wars villains go out like suckas:

Darth Maul
Obi Wan, jumps out of a precarious position, grabs the light saber via jedi powers, and lands behind Maul to slice him in half. Keep in mind, it felt like 10 seconds for all this to happen and Maul is just standing there like he's waiting to die. Total BS. I thought "the high ground" was suppose to be an advantage.

Jango Fett
Mace Windu blocks one or two gun shots and instantly decapitates Jango. No build up or anything. Dies within seconds of the arena battle.

Darth Tyrannous
Dies at the beginning of Episode III in a sloppily written scene. Pretty much an afterthought.

General Grievious
He's an early prototype of the Darth Vader experiment and is allegedly feared among Jedis. But what does he do in Episode III? He spends the majority of his screen time running away.

Bobba Fett
A blinded Han Solo accidentally knocks down Fett into the pit. Just idiotic.


Courtney's heroes are Dr. Doom and Trench Coat. That is scary and kinda sweet at the same time.

Tim, how can you forget about Jack Flag and the Ellis Thunderbolts run. Those Podcast X episodes where you guys review them were fucking great. I think those were the first few podcasts where I listened and had the comic displayed on my monitor at the same time. Ever since then, whenever I listen to either THOOM or PCX, I have to have the comic being reviewed, on my monitor (if I can find them). It's the the best way to listen to your shows.

The Wreck Roar said...

Also, American Eagle needs to be in more comic books. He came off as such a bad-ass in Thunderbolts. I think he appeared in only two other books since then. An online one-shot where he beats the shit out of Cottonmouth. And a weak ass showing in War Machine where they totally waste him.

Ever since Civil War, Reed has become such an asshole. He makes moronic decisions and he still doesn't pay his wife any attention. Sue would be much better with Namor. That guy practically worships her. And ya know she probably thinks of him during the rare occasions of sex with Reed. Hell, she'd be better off with her brother. It's almost a guarantee that the sex would be wild with all the bottled up tension between them.

Thanks for all the podcasts and congrats on your 100th! Here's to another hundred episodes.

That is how the master, Akira Kurosawa would do it. You see the end of 'Yokimbo'? Ain't no 200 minute battle jumping across scaffoldings at the end of the movie. Mace Windu is supposed to be a Mater Jedi. He'd better not be grappling with some bounty hunter (a mercenary whose motivation is greed)

>>Darth Tyrannous>>
Count Dooku!? I thought you said 'cool' Star Wars Villians.

>>General Grievious

Yes, because he was maimed. (Mace did that too. BTW I liked how his story went from that Clone Wars cartoon movie to Ep. II like that, continuing the story where that 'toon left off.)

Bobba Fett and Maul were robbed. Of screen time.

>>Tim, how can you forget about Jack Flag and the Ellis Thunderbolts run.>>

Because T-Mafia said remember "what Thunderbolts [did to] that kid" ? Jack Flag is a grown ass man. If he said "remember when the T-Bolts crippled that idiot"? I would've had total recall.

They're gypsies, it's part of their culture.

She choose not-Namor cause he doesn't show too "regal" wearing swimmer bottoms, especially in those early Kirby issues. I think they even show Namor has cameltoe. While she knows Reed can grow.

Susan has incest fetish. She chose Reed cause he's a careless scientist much like her father who was a careless doctor. And Johnny is so messed up from his incestuous relationship with Sue that he has a hard time being with any women. So messed up he would marry his best friend's girl. And stayed married to her when he found out she was really a skrull, with the power to look like his sister in the bedroom.

I don't know, dude. It still felt kinda cheap. Especially after he held his own against Obi Wan earlier.


<< Count Dooku!? I thought you said 'cool' Star Wars Villians. >>

C'mon, Tyrannous had a pretty sweet duel at the end of Episode II. And Christopher Lee gives the character a lot of cool points.

lol. Fair enough.

LMAO!

Darth Vader wasn't a villain. He was the hero who brought balance to the force, AND got to dump cum in some chick while he was doing the hard task of saving the universe.

He threw that bitch Palpatine down a shaft, which he should have done a long time ago. I wonder why Palps didn't fly using that force lightning. Don't they have video games like Prototype long ago, in a land far away?

lol. That's one way to view it. And I can't say your wrong.

Sidious seems more of an Infamous fan. Total PS fanboy.
