Episode XLIII: Podcast With The Wind

Welcome back to The Deucecast... or with our guest co-host, could it be... The DrewsCast?

As per usual, we imbibe a little with our Beverage Tasting of the Week, this time a little more fancy with Hubert's Mango Lemonade and Honey Lemonade.  And surprisingly, it wasn't bad. (!)

We dive into racial expression with a discussion on the Jeremy Lin/ESPN headline kerfuffle with varied opinions... what did the columnist know?  When did he know it?   The Deucecast spares no expense for hard-hitting journalistic journalism with our journalists.

Mikey waxes poetic about his weekend Missouri trip, including a stop at the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor... the guys have a longer-than-intended discussion about The Eagles, plus former members Randy Misner and Timothy Schmit... and somehow, the band Heart and its music makes it way into the discussion. We also jump into movies seen this week, like "This Means War"... "Ghost Rider 2: Nic Cage Sucks Again"... "Real Steel"... and more "Phantom Menace" talk.

Whitney Houston is featured in the Music Minute Spotlight, as we discuss her legacy and memories, plus some of her best music, at least according to d$.

After a great Buried Treasure in which Mikey digs up "Day of the Tenticle", Drew brings out the Big Guns during his first Smorg, asking the question "What Makes Us Like Movies", leading the group to talk about what truly gets us in favor of, or against, a film... rewatchability... emotion... how it makes you feel... and as Mikey says, "divisiveness".

Our Big Three topic shares the movies that YOU should see... little scene or perhaps forgotten films that you might have missed, so in our opinions, you need to see movies like "Suicide Kings"... a diehard NFL fan in "Big Fan"... an early Coen brothers favorite in "Blood Simple"... and a movie better than "Dirty Dancing"?  Dig it!

Oh, and we talk about "Bridesmaids" again.

NEXT WEEK... Our Oscar recap, what went right and what went wrong... d$'s classic Buried Treasure... Mikey's Crappy Musical Crap... more movies seen... Celebrity Apprentice... and The Big Three Oscar Mistakes of All Time (not counting Marisa Tomei, Saving Private Ryan's snub and anything from this year)... that's on The Deucecast Episode XLIV: Inglorious Podcasters
