Hobo Radio 491 – A copy of a copy that doesn’t make sense

Subscribe:


This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk about two bizarre recent characters that have taken the Internet by storm – the Philadelphia Flyers mascot Gritty and the fan-created sexy female take on Bowser from Super Mario Bros., Bowsett.

Joel also makes the case for having a Latino actor play Superman, Lars reveals director Tony Kaye’s plan to cast a robot as the lead in his next movie and Joel talks about a recent Q&A he attended with Mission: Impossible – Fallout director Christopher McQuarrie.

How good of a detective is Batman really? Is Waluigi the laziest named character in the Super Mario Bros. universe? What if Scientology is real? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Skullcrusher Mountain” by Jonathan Coulton

Hobo Radio 431 – There is an idea of Emma Watson

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle discuss Richard Donner’s lazy original ending for Superman 2 and how he and Tim Burton had no appreciation of the source material when making their big budget superhero movies.

They also discuss Emma Watson’s beauty regimen, which feels oddly reminiscent of a certain Christian Bale character’s. And Lars breaks out his (work-in-progress) Jesse Ventura impression.

Why did Superman’s chest logo turn into a net? Why is Disney creating live action remakes of all of its classic cartoons? Is John Cena the Poochie of the WWE? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “L’amour élastique” by Arnaud Le Gouëfflec meets Jorge Bernstein & the Pioupioufuckers
