Episode 537: Non Musical Music Movies

It's Week 2 of #FanboySummer, and Dave, Mikey, and #TwitterlessDrEarl seek to improve the show by bringing on people better than all of us... and when its about music, when its about movie music, when its about movies about music but aren't musicals, what better person to bring in than Mississippi's Finest, guitar player and worship leader and podcast host and Discord Datcord fellow Matt Mink, aka, The Mink Panther.

The fellas talk about Matt and where he's from, where he's going, and why he loves music. The discussion leads to some of the group's fave music influences, including some old country like The Statlers, Jamie Johnson, and more Kentucky Headhunters than any podcast has talked about in recent memory. And, of course, the Forrester Sisters, because of course.

Then, the return of Birthday Movies, including the absolute murderer's row of films released in June 1987, then the Top Five movies about music, but are not actually musicals... films with the beloved Anna Kendrick and films with Pixar and films with a non Danielsan Ralph Macchio but not the early Britney Spears and films with Michelle Pfieffer on a piano and films with George Clooney lip syncing and a Fountains of Wayne shout out and d$ in touch with his heritage on a golf cart in Cancun and of course, Christopher Guest.

And a ton more. Stick around in the aftershow segment to hear who gets #3 on FanboySummer!

The movies discussed, and where streaming at the time of recording:

  • Amadeus (for rental)
  • The Commitments (for rental)
  • Coco (Disney+)

Episode 536: Deuce Got Game

It's the first episode of #FanBoySummer, featuring one of the show listeners not only joining the show, but picking the topic!

Today, Mikey, d$ (returning from his death bed), and #TwitterlessDrEarl welcome back Friend of the Show and Mr Independent himself, Jeremy Burgess. 

First up, a gangsta' game of Rotten Tomatoes, honoring one we lost too soon -- Ray Liotta, and his best (and not so best) films. Then, Burgess' topic pick, figuring how we've done football and baseball centric themes, and so this time, it's all round ball.... Top Five Best Basketball movies.

And it makes for an even better time when two of the four have only seen a marginal amount of hoops films, one has seen mostly documentaries, and the fourth being the only true basketball cinematic expert. 

The movies discussed, and where they are streaming at time of recording: 

  • The Air Up There (Hulu)
  • Blue Chips (Prime, Paramount Plus, EPIX)
  • Celtic Pride (for rental)
  • Crimes of the Future (rental)

Episode 535: Doctor Strange in the Deuceverse of Madness

The Deucecast Team decided to spend the Holiday weekend with our families but we couldn't leave our loyal listeners without content.

This is the audio version of our YouTube Show The Deucecast Extra in which we did a spoiler filled discussion of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Dave, Mikey, and TwitterlessDrEarl are joined by Deucecast staples Garrison, Roth in Wyoming, and Hurricane Rhett for a really fun conversation that goes off the rails as expected.

We'll be back next week with the beginning of our Listener curated episodes. Can't wait for you all to hear who won week one.
