This week it is just Lance & Berg, as Mills had a prior commitment. It is our monthly “What’s Happening” show. With only two of us, our discussion take NUMEROUS tangents, but still we have our normal fair of events to discuss. The Rose Festival is still ongoing, and the Grand Floral Parade is Saturday June 8th downtown. Berg has a couple of concerts that he is planning on checking out, see the list below. There are also a couple big name Comedians coming to town. Tracy Morgan will be in town on the 13th at the Newmark Theatre . Pauly Shore, yes that Pauly Shore, will be at the Harvey's Comedy Club on June 21ST. Finally, Bill Maher will be cracking wise about politics at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on June 23rd. We mixed in a little sports talk, we had to after seeing how well the Oregon Colleges are doing in Baseball this spring. Of course we didn’t forget about the movies. There is a sure fire Blockbuster, as well as a Casey Movie Pick.
Going Off Topic
The guys gather together at the General’s pad with a friend of the show, Claire. She claims she is just there to sit quietly and enjoy the show, but the guys manage to get her to chime in more than she claims she intends. Lance starts the show by berating Berg and Mills for breaking spoiler protocol last week, then recaps where he was last week that caused him to miss the show. Then the guys are posed a question; what 5 things they would do if they were invisible for a day. Needless to say, this topic spiraled out of control rather quickly. Since we have already gone down the rabbit hole, we continue. The guys discuss what shitty movie that clearly doesn’t deserve it, but they want to have made. What movie do you think that the guys missed on? They end the show “recapping” what they did for Memorial Day. Give it a Listen, and enjoy.
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.
