#67: The Heart of Burning Man

IMG_3512.JPG

What the hay is Burning Man, eh? Well, we can tell you one thing: it’s certainly not Coachella! In this snob, Matt and Sean break form, talking not about a movie but about a “festival” — that is, this thing called Burning Man. What is it? Is it legit? 2 legit? 2 legit 2 quit? No one would ever say something like that there. It’s pretty darn cool, it turns out, and this episode gets into why.

Sean recently returned from the Burn, his first experience, and Matt, ever the compassionate Buddha man, interviews him in order to get into the heart of “that thing in the desert.” We hope that you will join us on this wild ride, Listener, for we wish to give you a glimpse into this wild pagan ritual, this splendid gathering of naked people. With hope, one day, together we will comprise the General Snobbery tent, and we shall deliver laughs for all the playa to enjoy.

#60: Rick and Morty: Mr. Poopybutthole and Fascist Assholes

Good snobs! How delighted we are to bring you this new episode on the hit TV show, Rick and Morty. Specifically, we focus on Episode 204, "Total Rickall", which Matt and Sean believe is one of the greatest episodes of television of all time. The reason? Partly because of "Pencil-vester". Partly due to Mr. Beauregard ("Marmelade is seeeerved"). But credit shall be given where credit is due: this episode has come to be in thanks to our beloved Mr. Poopybutthole, one of the greatest TV characters of all time. 

While on the surface "Total Rickall" appears to be about an alien parasite that creates false memories in people in order to spread and take over the planet, Matt and Sean's hermeneutic reads between these lines. What might this infectious parasite be an allegory for? Fascism, no doubt! 

Join us for this rip-roaring interdimensional journey through the land of a cartoon sure to live on in infamy. And if you haven't seen this episode of Rick and Morty, please stop all you are doing and watch it right now. Praise Be, Mr. Poopybutthole.
