What happens when Star Wars creator/destroyer George Lucas hires X-Men writer Chris Claremont to make a trilogy in the style of Lord of the Rings? An incomprehensible, sodden mess, as it turns out. A gritty reimagineering of slash sequel to a schlocky, shticky, slapsticky non-hit children’s movie called Willow, Shadow Moon nearly brings J., Collision, […]

Hey, kids! Do you like playing Video Games? Do you like watching other people play video games? Do you like people telling you about playing video games? Do you like people telling you the story of a video game as though the story had happened to them, omitting no detail, not even one, for 250 […]

Recommended by major dude and friend of the show Tom Keiser, it’s time for J and Collision to endure the long lines and longer speeches of… Airport, Arthur Hailey’s 1968 ode to MEN and their DECISIONS and their FEELINGS.

This episode will rock you to your foundations, as J. and Collision tune up the band and take a hot shot of Slash’s memoir Slash. That’s right, the guitar player from Guns & Roses wrote a book (sorta) and we read it (bigtime). Rarely has a book about sex, drugs, and rock & roll been […]

A lot of old-school fun this time around, as Chris and J discuss Lee Child’s strangely tame thriller/exploration of male fantasy “Killing Floor”. Chris drinks way too much delicious Bicycle coffee (roasted in Oakland! Delivered by bicycle!) and gets super-squirrelly. J ponders a minor rebrand for IDEOTVPOD. New segments get new songs and there is […]

They can’t all be winners, and Frank G. Slaughter’s “The Curse of Jezebel” definitely proves that axiom. Join us and semi-regular guest Centa Schumacher as we discuss a book that can probably be best described as “biblical fan-fiction”. Really boring biblical fan-fiction.

Well then. Here’s a book that probably blew your dad’s mind back in the day. Sorry about your dad’s mind, really and truly.
