Celebrities are used to being the center of attention. Their wardrobes, daily routines and random musings become fodder for paparazzi. But with a global pandemic shifting priorities and everyone quarantined at home, people seem less interested in celebrities these days, which has caused them to seek attention in bizarre ways.
Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss Gal Gadot’s “Imagine” video, Ellen comparing her mansion to prison and all of the other ways celebrities are desperate for attention in these trying times. They also talk about Quibi’s lackluster launch and the closing of UCB New York.
This week’s music:
Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
End – “Eight Nine (Won’t You Be Mine?)” by Ava Luna

People react to Fight Club‘s surreal and bizarre ending in a variety of ways. But whatever your reaction was as the credits roll, chances are you weren’t thinking, “This sets things up perfectly for a sequel.” Regardless, Chuck Palahniuk recently told Hustler that he plans on developing a graphic novel sequel that will feature an older narrator and Marla Singer raising a child together and struggling with the monotony of married life. Joel Murphy and Lars share their thoughts on this unexpected revelation.
Speaking of Fight Club, a movie theater pulled a very Tyler Durden-esque move this past weekend, accidentally showing porn instead of the movie Frozen to a theater full of families. The dynamic duo discuss this, Paul Walker’s untimely death and the new Wonder Woman casting.
Was the theater that accidentally showed porn in Florida or Philadelphia? Is Gal Gadot the right casting for Wonder Woman? How can you make your YouTube “How To” videos better? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.
