Blues Brothers 2000 - DVD podBLAST




whywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhywhyWHY??

Arguably the worst sequel-to-original disparity in the history of cinema. This hunk of crap jumps the shark in so many ways that if we listed them all here, we might break the internet.

How Dan Ackroyd was able to round everyone up for this is a mystery. One suspects that no one asked to read the script first.

Suggestion: Dan, instead of showing your love of music and Blues by trying to reproduce the magic of the original Blues Brothers, do a documentary. Everyone expects those to suck.

BLASTphemers - if you're in the habit of listening to BLASTs without renting the movie, go out on a limb with this one. Some of the gasps you'll hear on the BLAST will make more sense if you're actually getting the visuals.

This has nothing to do with anything, but as he's mentioned it a few times here and there, it has me curious: What kind of YGO deck does the Mangler play with?

I concur, Nothing But Trouble is nothing but shit. Not even the awesome Digital Underground cameo couls save it.

To answer your question Mr. Akito, I have recently been playing with an Earth deck which includes Dark Driceretops and Gigantes. They are my boys. I also have the usual Giant Rats and Gilasauras's. Can't tell you some of my surprise cards. But my team captain is Kycoo the Ghost Destroyer. I love that card.

Only two to go!!

I think now's a good time to reflect on this two seasons of PodBlasting and reveal our favourite and least favourite Blasts:

My Top 5: YOU GOT SERVED, REVENGE OF THE SITH, DOUBLE IMPACT/DOUBLE TEAM, FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY, DREAMCATCHER

As for Least Faves: EPIC MOVIE, BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES, CROSSROADS, SON OF THE MASK, ACE VENTURA 2

Random Memorable Moments: Donut burgers; Steve 'crunking'; Shit-faced LEPRECHAUN Blast; Senta Moses; 'Song for Sluts'; Any time D farts.

Ahhh, the memories...

I found a new commentary team that might tide us over in absence of The Blasters

Aw, c'mon, D...don't you know Magic the Gathering is where it's at? Come on up to the big boys' table! :)

However, I do totally agree with you that Senta shoulda done this blast with you guys...

I hope The Blasters will be watching the rugby world cup. Now that's a MAN'S sport.

I listened to some of that Over The Top podcast and they suck.

Proof once again that NOBODY does it like the Adudathuda boys!

In fact, I'd much rather spend their break re-listening to their Blasts (like I do all the time) than give Douchetrax any of my money.

Have you listened to Renegade Commentaries Max? They are the grandfathers of the alternate commentary and recorded lots of good ones.

Best and worst moments, huh?

For Best... I think the whole of Showgirls was awesome. Love the Double Double Damme Damme one. The Song For Sluts from From Justin to Kelly (also a fav on the whole) was epic.

For Worst... I agree on Bonfire. The movie was just so dull and boring that even the 'Blasters couldn't make it a fun time. Though it did make me want to play tennis. If I'm getting the right one. Bad memory ftw. Due to easy-queasy badness, the puke-sounding burp at the end of... Street Fighter, I believe it was. And then maybe Congo's audio being kinda wonky.

Honestly, the good massively outweighs the bad. We all have bad days and sometimes nothing you can do will salvage something.

You know, I found the Blast site AFTER S1 had ended. And I was sad when I heard nothing new until 07. And I think I'll be sad when this year's break occurs. But all of us need a break from bad movies, both the Blasters and us fans. So I'm ready to take the last two in the face.

Just like your mothers all did last night. :D

As for the BONFIRE Blast, I'd much rather have listened to 2 hours of their tennis game than that Blast. I imagine Darren would be a trash-talker par excellence.


If I had one suggestion for season 3, it'd be to set up a proper message board where we can comment on the Blasts and communicate with each other.

Posting multiple times on these blogs comes off as self-indulgent. Just look at the amount od crap (awesomeness) I posted on the ALONE IN THE DARK blog.


If this mythic message board was started, I'd also like more contributions from the Blasters themselves. It might encourage their ever-growing number of subscribers to start contributing Paypal donations to keep the Blasts going.


And as I've suggested before, the guys should put more photos/video footage online. Even if it's non-Blast-related stuff like Darren schooling 12 year-olds at YU-GI-OH, Senko seething with rage, or Bill having a Nanna-nap.

You want it... you got it.

I was setting it up and I think I crashed our website, so you may not be able to get at it right now... but hopefully it will fix itself shortly.
