Listen to ‘Gobbledygeek’ Episode 246, “Oh God, It’s Jason Tabrys (feat. Jason Tabrys)”


Gobbledygeek episode 246, “Oh God, It’s Jason Tabrys (feat. Jason Tabrys),” is available for listening or download right here, and on iTunes here.

Once and future Koko the Showfucker (and, one supposes, veteran pop culture writer/editor) Jason Tabrys is once again spreading his distinct brand of cheer to Gobbledygeek like so much plague. When he’s not hawking Jason Juice, M. Tabrys talks with Paul and AJ about fall TV, including accusations of Muppety ignorance; the Dear Fat People video and whether or not YouTube flashes-in-the-pan like it are worth spending our precious outrage on; and what the preponderance of fan theories means, if it means anything at all. But it’s mostly Jason Juice.

Next: the Geek Challenge rises from the dead. Paul must watch Peter Jackson’s 1992 gorefest Dead Alive, while AJ must endure the 1984 post-apocalyptic teen movie Night of the Comet.

Listen to Last Night’s Gobbledygeek

The ghost's natural enemy: 1980's dance.

Last night’s Gobbledygeek, “Boo,” is available for listening right here. We talk about a bunch of ghost movies, whether or not we prefer helpful or malevolent spirits in our fiction, and some of our own personal experiences with haunted house attractions, but by far the best part of the show is in the bonus hour. After some DVD releases and a check-up on the state of the fall TV season, Paul gives the origin story of his online username, Haunt, which so fascinated Kevin and I that it led to an hours-long Skype chat after the show. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

Next week: Monster grab bag. Aliens, demons, and slashers, oh my!

Listen to This Weekend’s Gobbledygeek

Steve Buscemi in 'Boardwalk Empire'

Friday’s Gobbledygeek, “Ladies and Gentlemen, Start Your DVR’s,” is available for listening right here. Lessons learned: I thought I watched TV, I was wrong, Paul watches way more, there are far too many television shows for one person to conceivably watch all of them unless they’re Paul. We talk about a bunch of new and returning shows we’re interested in checking out, then in the bonus hour, we talk about upcoming DVD and book releases, the superhero anthology Masked, and the films Exit Through the Gift Shop and Splice.
