Grumpy Young Men

Today we are discussing the video game Doki Doki Literature Club, which is a totally normal not weird super fun happy dating simulator. And nothing terrifying or disgusting or awful ever happens in this game. Nope. Not this game.

Also, why we hate old-timey political apathy.

Today on the podcast, our topic is separating the art from the artist. The truth is, a lot of artists are downright scumbags. But can we still appreciate the art they make? We discuss this topic and go through many examples, especially a lot of recent examples given the incredibly powerful #MeToo movement that’s been growing the past few months.

Also, why we hate our old podcast setup.

(Also, this was recorded back in the beginning of December, so a lot of the allegations we discussed are now out of date, given that incredibly brave women and men have continued to come forward and name their accusers. So please keep that in mind if we don’t quite have a full picture, or don’t name some people such as James Franco, Aziz Ansari, etc.)

This week, we’re reviewing the standalone Hawkeye film, Arrival. We discuss the intricate plot, debate over its philosophical quandaries, and lament the current state of science fiction in film. (Spoilers: it ain’t too good right now.)

Also, why we hate distraction-free writing.

Today on the pod, we go back an look at 2017 and discuss some of the best and worst things about this year. The good things? We got a lot of great movies and video games. Plus, our podcast got professional. The bad things? Basically everything else.

Also, why we hate the new table tennis table.
