Sean Wynn (Sean W), a local comic book store manager, joins us this week. Lance & Sean can’t help but bring up comics with Sean W throughout the show. We start off talking about some recent casting Hollywood has done. Now that Megan Fox has been cast as the female lead in Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, read April O’Neil, the guys decide to cast the rest of the movie. As the discussion moves on, the Lone Ranger and white wash casting of Johnny Depp as Tonto is flushed out. Absurd Arguments is back this week, where we argue whether you'd rather go see a Ke$ha or Tim McGraw concert and why. After a little more comic book talk, we end the show talking about Star Trek: Into the Darkness and who Benedict Cumberbatch will be playing, or at least currently rumored to be playing. Give it a listen, and let us know what you think.
Every first episode of the month we cover a few events in Portland that we're looking forward to. Berg & Sean scour the concert venues for a few shows they're looking forward to checking out. There is a list for tickets below. It's March, so you know what that means...St. Paddy's Day! Before your drinking gets too over the top, you can go participate in the Shamrock Run, a charity 5k. Of course there will be some partying and some shenanigans going on at Kell’s afterwards. Don’t forget that Daylight Savings is on the 10th and we will all be losing a precious hour of sleep. College basketball fans are getting excited March Madness is coming. Towards the end of the month, the Spring Beer & Wine Festival will take over the Oregon Convention Center. Of course, we can’t get together without a few random conversations and sidebars taking place. So we debate the correct way toilet paper should hang and the latest internet sensation the Harlem Shake.
