Jitterbug and Nerves are joined by the good Shephard Book today to discuss the Sweet Baby Jesus... No, he hasn't convinced us to become Christians, we're drinking Sweet Baby Jesus from DuClaw. That's mighty good fuel to get us all worked up and screaming at each other about whether or not the Robocop reboot is awesome or utter crap.

Will Butler / Anna

North Mississippi Allstars / Shake 'Em On Down


End Song:

Azealia Banks / 212 ROBOCOP MIX

13 - I Saw the Devil's Super Bowl

Nerves joins us this week from what sounds like an airplane hanger, but is actually just bad audio - sorry, we'll get that fixed for next week. We just got finished watching the Super Bowl, and have some thoughts on the game as well as the commercials. We also review the movie, I Saw The Devil.

The good Shephard Book fills in for Nerves this week and reveals that The Godfather is his favorite film of all time. This is NOT something that can be revealed without much discussion, prompting this episode to run a bit on the long side as Jitterbug and Book explore one of the greatest movies of all time before then delving into Muscle Shoals, a documentary all about some of the greatest music ever recorded. It's going to be a good show!


Bill Frisell / Let Me In

Freddy King / Going Down
