The HomeWorld Podcast #1

In Transmission: HomeWorld on June 30, 2009 at 11:01 pm

Derk and I have been talking about doing a podcast.  We’ve finally done it.  OH JOY.  In this first edition, we ramble quite a bit.  The key point of discussions?  The King of Country Western Troubadours, Unknown Hinson, Derk fleshes out his Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen review a bit more, the virtues of Michael Bay versus Uwe Boll, why A Nightmare On Elm Street shouldn’t be remade, how Batman: Arkham Asylum handles, proof that Michael Jackson probably wasn’t a pedobear, and the mysterious sandwiches of potential death.

Some Unknown Hinson YouTube videos, after the jump.
