Episode 124: Impressions de Leon: The Professional

A spontaneous MobileCast turns into a two-parter, in which Bart discusses digging dinosaurs, preschool teacher politics, and whether a Jetsons movie would still work. Then after a short 8 hour break, comes back with a bleedin' nose to talk about the new "bar" at Epcot's Canada pavilion, and what international celebrities should host new Circle-Vision 360 movies in World Showcase.

Show Notes:

My favorite dinosaur display from my childhood, located at the Milwaukee Public Museum.

The best scene in the 1998 Godzilla remake. "More cream."

Episode 123: Deep Purple (Farewell to the Prince)

In which Bart pays tribute to three lost celebrities this week; Doris Roberts, Chyna, and of course, Prince Rogers Nelson. Plus fast-casual Middle Eastern food, channeling Epcot, "setting the stage", and a quick strip to the EoS Library to discuss the literary works of Jimmy Buffett. 

Episode 122: To The Left

A little delayed, it's another Monday(ish) MobileCast. Bart rides with the windows down, rants about people who won't get out of the way, and asks you, the listeners if you'd be interested in wearing the proper . . . uh, body gear.


Episode 121: Ridin' the Storms Out

A not-so Monday MobileCast in which Bart talks the weather, riding out a real life twister, and why Cars Land will always remind him of bad weather. Then after a short 8 hour break, returns to discuss drinking at the Hollywood Tower Hotel, imagines his own Hanna-Barbera super team, before witnessing an almost tragic-turned-not-so-bad situation.

Episode 120: Something In The Water

In which Bart gets hyped about new music by Jesse Blaze Snider, figures he should probably stop swearing on the show given the official announcement he makes, welcomes the end of American Idol, discusses both new trailers from Disney this week -- The BFG and Rogue One, and dips back into his own writing history with a story from the past.
