Before we offend a good portion of the international population, we talk MTV and their new series TEEN WOLF. This isn’t Michael J. Fox’s TEEN WOLF though. This one is a drama. We’re calling it TWOLF-LIGHT. As 80s babies we take special offense to this broadcasted atrocity. But in this day and age, we’re starting to take things like this with a grain of salt since they’re happening everywhere, in every medium. The most we can do, is sit in the bleachers and laugh at it.
Charlie Sheen is suffering from Rebecca Black syndrome. He’s popular… but for the wrong reasons. That became overwhelmingly apparent during his first stop on his 20-city tour this past week. People have been fans of him on Twitter and on his incomprehensible webcast, but they weren’t too keen on Sheen when he took the stage for his live show. He wasn’t funny, he wasn’t entertaining and before the show even ended hoards of people were getting up and leaving, demanding refunds. Many of them came right out and said the only reason they bought tickets was to see him fail horribly… and that he did. It’s over Charlie, people don’t like you, they like to make fun of you. Move on. Oh, and CBS? Please cancel TWO AND A HALF MEN. It too is over. Leave it be.
Maybe people will sue Charlie to get their money back. Suing seems to be the American way. It always has been. You can sue for something absurd, pull a dollar amount out of your ass and you’ll likely get it. There were 2 lawsuits that blipped on our radar this week. One of them from a man named Larry Klayman. He’s suing Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg for a billion dollars because they didn’t take down an anti-Semitic Facebook page as quickly as he would’ve liked. Wait until you hear his argument for why Zuckerberg should be held accountable. He sights a certain movie that tells the untrue story of how Facebook came to be. And wait until you hear who else this Klayman fellow has sued in the past! The other lawsuit comes by way of the RIAA. Yeah, they’re still around. They’ve filed a claim that you’ll find hard to believe. I don’t want to give too much away here, but I will say this, the ass they pulled this number from must be sorer than shit right now!
Once again, cue the lens flares and D.C. wide shots… Michael Bay is back. This time he’s courting the deity of sci-fi fanboys the world over to voice a seldom heard about Transformer in the next film. Bay says he was scared to ask this guy, but given his wife is Bay’s cousin, that made it easier. Have you figured out who I’m talking about? Open your ‘ears’ and listen to the show, it’ll ‘point’ you in the right direction.

Standard-issue Who Asked You? this week as things happen, we tell you about them and then comment on them. One of those things is the announcement that Apple is going to announce the iPad 2………… yeah, who gives a rats ass on that one. Next, is an E-Mail from a longtime listener that pertains to last week’s poll question. You may remember (since it was just 7 days ago) we asked you whether or not guys should wear skinny jeans. There are a lot of ‘issues’ to take into account when deciding the hug factor of denim on the extremities. The main one of course is the compression of your junk. Our poll results reveal that not everyone is as concerned with actually wearing them as they are with how a person is able to put them on in the first place.
Meanwhile, MTV, fresh off of their child porn scare with that new show called SKINS used the cast of it to announce another show’s return this summer. Seemed fitting perhaps. After all, SKINS showed some kids butt and the returning show has ‘butt’ in the title. Yep, BEAVIS AND BUTT-HEAD are coming back. And yes, Mike Judge is involved. And yes, it will be animated. And yes, they will still make fun of music videos among other things. Other things you ask? Tune in to find out what clips will join the comical commentary of the couple from their couch.
You’ve most likely heard by now that Charlie Sheen has been drinking and perhaps doing drugs. You may have heard on the radio his approval of doing cocaine if you can manage it socially. And you may have heard his boss-bashing of TWO AND A HALF MEN co-creator Chuck Lorre. Due to all of the above, Sheen, his co-stars and about 200 production staff are now out of work. CBS pulled the plug on the remainder of this season. And in a late-breaking development today, Sheen says he wants $3-million per episode to return next year. That’s about double his current salary.
We take a break from the Hollywood drama to play a quick round of “Best Worst Most Least.” We haven’t done one of these in awhile, it seemed like a good time. Sort of playing off the Charlie Sheen thing, one of the questions ponders the most money each of us has ever held in our hand. We’re talkin’ cold hard cash here… not checks or money orders. Charlie has us beat due to a previous managerial position he held. But outside of the workplace, Dennis wins. But by how much? You’ll have to listen to find out.
We head back to Hollywood in a lightning round of movie news. Find out what the TWILIGHT writer may be working on next. Here’s a hint, she’s moving from vampires that live forever, to some other people that do too. A remake of a 70s movie based on a novel may have you on the ‘run.’ Also, it’s not really news if you pretty much knew it was going to happen. Casting choices for Tim Burton’s take on DARK SHADOWS is what we’re talking about here. Give you hint on this one too, she’s bangin’ him. And Julia Roberts is evil… oh yeah, she’s also playing an evil queen in a live-action take on an old story involving a woman and her 7 vertically challenged friends.
As always, we end with some “Breaking News.” This time we’re headed to Indiana where an obscure reference on a billboard of an event in the 70s has us wondering how soon is too soon? Personally, in this instance, I’m not sure ‘too soon’ applies given the circumstances. You’ll hear all about it on this, our 153rd episode.

Before that though we feel it necessary to bring you up to speed on some events that occurred over the Halloween break. First and foremost, Charlie Sheen has expensive taste in watches and not just pay-to-play women. According to reports that little tantrum he threw at that fancy New York hotel was because he thought his whore had stolen his crazy-valuable time piece. That’s why she locked herself in the bathroom. His attempt to play frisbee with hotel furniture scared her and she didn’t want to get a chair across the back world wrestling style.
And if you’re one of only 16 people still using MySpace you may have noticed it looks a little different. That’s because the News Corp-owned social website has launched their new redesign in hopes of bringing in at least some of the crowd they lost to Facebook the last couple of years. Sadly, MySpace’s interface continues to be cluttered, confusing and buggy. We’ll admit, it is in “beta”. But the site was terribly bug-ridden before on the old design too. And we know, Facebook is flakey too. But at least you can navigate Facebook without bleeding from your ears.
We also talk about Superman’s hip new emo-appearance. He’s getting the Twilight refresh for a new origins graphic novel retelling the story of his, uhhh… origins. Some say he’s full on hipster. Others think he looks too douchey. This seems to be the demand though in this day and age. The brightly colored tights of super heroes past are getting traded in for skinny jeans and hoodies. We’ll just have to get used to that.
We may also have to get used to playing video games with our bodies! Unless you’re black. Then the thing doesn’t work and you can’t play at all. I’m talking about the newly released MICROSOFT KINECT. The device that hooks up to your XBox360 allows you, using motion capture, to play a select group of games using bodily movements to control the guy on the screen. It’s the next step in kinetic game play from what the Wii started. Unfortunately the technology is a little racist some say. Due to contrast issues, which is what facial recognition software runs off of, it’s being reported that the device has trouble working with people who have dark skin tones. One test lab says it’s true, the other says they can’t duplicate the problem. Still, you can’t ignore the fact that there could be a flaw with the software’s processing. A new webcam technology on the latest HP computers released a few months back seem to suffer from a very similar issue. Look below in the Show Links for a YouTube video demonstrating that phenomenon.
Also on the rundown is another phenomenon of sorts. This one being stupidity amongst our college-aged kids and energy drink manufacturers. Somewhere along the line these drink concocters thought it’d be a good idea to mix tons of caffeine with tons of alcohol and sell it. And somewhere along that same wobbly line, college kids didn’t see any harm in downing them like a Mountain Dew or mixing them with even more alcohol and/or drugs. Clearly you can see the problem here right? The beverage makers don’t seem to. Perhaps it all comes down to moderation. Energy drinks are gross anyway. You should moderately drink them. And given they’re full of caffeine, and now alcohol, it’s best for your safety and health.
If you want an altered state of mind, just not from a can. Then we’re here to help. Who Asked You? has discovered a website selling audio that they claim will give you a simulated high. It’s totally legal and safe. However, the big question is does it work? Or are you just buying white noise? We put it to the test on today’s show. Listen in and see if it works on you. Disclaimer: Who Asked You? is not responsible for any act you commit under the influence of this episode. So if you wake up naked in a dumpster with your iPod shoved up your ass and your headphones wrapped around your bruised neck, don’t come crying to us.
