The Montreal geek and pop culture podcast that thinks Dune’s giant sand worms are cooler than Shang-Chi’s big giant dragons is back another episode. Trust the science.

So by all accounts Lowtax was not a great person, probably not even a “good” person. But in a lot of ways that is pretty emblematic of the internet on the whole. It’s filled with not good people. It’s filled with shitty people. Or people pretending to be shitty, which is kind of the same thing. Was he kind of ahead of the curve when it came to predicting that the internet would make you stupid and coming up with a way to monetize that over 20 years ago? Definitely. 

When most people were still Asking Jeeves questions at the public computer in the library Something Awful was probably discovering goatse. Let that sink in.

Something we don’t really bring up when discussing the Travis Scott Astroworld Tragedy (brought to you in part by FortNite) was that Travis Scott has been charged twice for inciting riots at his concerts. Both times pleading guilty. So his lip service “how could this have happened” apology rings extra hollow.

Finally the back half of the show is all about those good-good blockbuster movies. We watched both Dune and Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings which means we get really nerdy up in here about comic books and sci-fi. Both of them should be up on The List sooner or later.

Garbage Time is back this week and we talk a bunch about AEW and then about some movies that were not good or memorable enough to be mentioned on the main show and then we talk about vampires. Vampires are so cool. Check out our Patreon Page and subscribe to the 9ES Deluxe level tier to get access to that primo content. You will love it more than some people love their own parents.

Our intro song is a brand new jam cooked up by OKU-DA just for us, do yourself a favour and check out his SoundCloud).
