Hollywood, circa 2017, is ruled by two axioms: People love to bitch that there are no new ideas in film and, if you air 125 minutes of footage of a cat sleeping, that footage will make $400 million if the cat is an Avenger. On July 7th, an immovable object

Meryl Streep Golden Globes
EntertainmentPapa's Basement Radio Show

I watched Sunday’s Golden Globes. (Not because I’m gay, but because I live with my mom. Please, get it right. I have a reputation to uphold!) The highlight of it was undoubtedly Meryl Streep, during her acceptance for the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award, calling out Donald Trump for

Metallica released a new single – its first in I believe eight years (I ain’t looking that shit up to confirm) – the other day. And it rocks. And I couldn’t be happier. It’s been so long since I’ve cared about this band that very few of you know this,

We all remember Tila Tequila, right? She was famous in the mid-to-late 2000s for being a tiny Asian with huge, fake tits (it doesn’t take much to get ahead in this country of ours). I think she had an MTV show where she dated both guys and girls to find

Let’s be honest: Motivating yourself to go to the gym is hard. This isn’t 1974. You can be a 400-pound blob and, between “adult” Internet content, Netflix, video games and Chipotle, you don’t really need to be in shape enough for a partner or able to use stairs without sweating

Co-host Pete lives about 350 yards from the West Virginia border. And West Virginia, compared to Virginia, has a very vice-laden vibe. To say nothing of its vibrant (if underground) meth and opioid smuggling industries, there are strip clubs all over the place (whether you want to see what’s inside

Vince Neil Nic Cage Fight
EntertainmentPapa's Basement Radio Show

Last week, Mötley Crüe singer Vince Neil got into a fight with Nic Cage. It’s the kind of shit the Internet eats up, at least until the next thing to hold our shattered attention spans arrives six hours later. Growing up a fan of “the Crüe” (did my insistence on

  First things first, Shawn F. visiting the show and Garry Shandling passing away are unrelated: I simply wanted to include both elements of the show in the title. It’s not like the man entering our studio was the fulfillment of some ancient Indian curse that doomed poor GS. For

This episode is a love letter to Major League, a favorite film of mine as a kid and one I finally got to see on the big screen this weekend. Why is Major League so damn good? You’ll have to listen to find out (preferably after clicking the link above

Before my right-wing friends think this is going to be some liberal jackathon, it ain’t: I believe that, way more than any shadowy agenda, Hollywood is way more greedy than racist. So, if it’s market forces that are creating a lot of what people find racist in Hollywood, is there

The start of 2016 has been a bloodbath for interesting artists. David Bowie, Alan Rickman, Glenn Frey, Jon Lovitz…it’s just all been bad news. Co-hostess Butters and I cover what we thought of each (passing judgment from our mighty tower of podcast triumph) and I also give my thoughts on

Unlike every other suburban white kid, I wasn’t raised to worship Star Wars. Which means, despite my paunch, beard and glasses, I don’t really give much of a shit about the release of The Force Awakens. Co-host Pete Maybe tries to tell me I’m an idiot for this, and we

Our new Halloween Month continues as we spend the last 20 minutes of the episode reviewing (well, panning) Curse Of Chucky, not only one of the worst horror movies I’ve seen, but up there in terms of worst movies, period. If you want to waste 90 minutes of your life

The trajectory of Adam Sandler’s career is nothing if not fascinating. 20 years ago, he could do no wrong. In the middle of a very popular SNL stint, he released Billy Madison, a movie I consider to be one of the great light comedies. His albums They’re All Gonna Laugh

First, before the article begins, I feel it is my duty to answer this question since it is the eternal debate with men regarding Amy Schumer: Is she hot? And the answer is…eh, not exactly, but I’ve certainly put it in worse. And she isn’t tripping over herself to hop
