Gobbledygeek episode 44, “$20 Toilet Paper or, 127 James Francos” is available for listening or download right here. The bad news: Paul and AJ talk about the Oscars. Again. For the last time. This year. Maybe. The good news: no one talks about Charlie Sheen! Ever! Plus you have some news, upcoming DVD releases, AJ’s reviews of the new Dum Dum Girls EP He Gets Me High and Tunes: A Comic Book History of Rock and Roll, as well as Paul’s takes on the new episode of Supernatural, Hans Zimmer’s Rango soundtrack, and the 1977 Ralph Bakshi animated “classic” Wizards.
The twentieth episode of Gobbledygeek airs live tonight at 10:30 PM EST right here. Inspired by the recent discovery of the so-called “Easter egg” in Hans Zimmer’s Inception score, we’re going to discuss the importance of music in film and television, what it adds, music that’s possibly more iconic than the piece it was supposed to be backing, etc. If you’ve got a favorite soundtrack or score, drop us a comment, tweet at us, or send an e-mail our way.
Also, in the bonus hour, we continue our countdown of the Top 100 Characters in Modern Pop Culture with #s 40-31.
