Daily mediocrity since 2003 from Portland, Oregon.

High level movie nerdery on display, in full IMAX resolution with Mike Russell who just came from an IMAX screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark in a bit of a tailspin. Not because the movie was bad - that movie could NEVER be bad - but because he found …
Learn all about the arts, with Leia Weathington and Byron Beck. There's a giant art festival in Portland right now, so that's educational. The art of speaking is examined via Bill Clinton's speech that seems to have most of the internet just solemnly applauding and nodding. And then there's the …
Courtenay Hameister happened today. That means magic happened. Magic is the only explanation for ending the show discussing Comedy Science via Mike Birbiglia's new movie, after starting the show discussing the first time Cort asked his wife out on a date. Apparently the phrase "Do you want to get some …
David Walker holds court on growing older, and visiting the sins of the old on the young, because otherwise how will they learn to be crusty old grumps like us when THEY get old? Back to School time brings out the worst in Bobby, and Cort reminisces on the futility …
Mike Russell closes out August with magic. First, a quick recap of Tim Burton's career, and where Batman slots into a ranking of his films. Then, a career retrospective of Clint Eastwood's, in order to get the taste of him losing an argument with a chair out of our mouths. …
Today's episode is very educational. Leia Weathington brought her friend Tendai from San Francisco, by way of India, by way of Zimbabwe, into the studio to talk about her visit to Portland, and the strange, inappropriate cultural exchanges she's been privy to, both on the street, at Oregon's Museum and …
Courtenay Hameister is a little anxious today. A little nervous. A little pressured. Her variety show suddenly has a bunch of competition, and the new season starts in a couple weeks, and the stakes are super high, and that is, of course, EXACTLY like going to elementary school with the …
David Walker is about to go on vacation just as Cort gets back from one. One in which he learned how to use seaweed as a disciplinary tool, and demonstrated just how cybernetic he's become: When unplugged from the internet, the paranoia swings into full bloom, and this time, the …
Leia Weathington's had some misadventures with hair removal. Byron Beck's had some misadventures in the ladies room. Thus begins a fairly educational show, in fact. Not only do we learn what behaviors from "Supernatural" are and aren't appropriate to try in real life, we learn about the latest batch of …
Courtenay Hameister brings her friend Chelsea Cain, best-selling author of "Heartsick" and "Kill You Twice," and there are indeed, some interesting places to go inside her head. It begins, as most interviews with ridiculously successful thriller-writers with properties optioned by FX do: On a D&D table, discussing the properties of …
This is the closest we've been to Dr. No-Love returning in the form of David Walker. It's not as it there's not enough pressure to cause an eruption: The crappy employers we've known, but never blown the whistle on, the crappy employees we've been solely to keep that check coming, …
It wasn't a very good weekend. What with politicians saying really stupid things about the female reproductive system, and well-liked film directors committing suicide after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer. The show opens with a remembrance of Tony Scott, his films, and a look into what his last hours …
Mike Russell has had his brains scrambled by exercise and heat. That means we spend a lot of the first half of the show alternately confused, bemused, and enthused by conversations including: The power of Edward James Olmos, the prospect of trading Portland landmarks for a Chicago tradition, at least …
I'm so glad we had this little talk. No. Really. I am. Really. [Download audio file (08162012.mp3)](http://cortandfatboy.cascadiaaudio.com/08162012.mp3)
A simple compliment to Courtenay Hameister on her award-winning short film sets off a chain reaction that leads to one of the most introspective shows in quite awhile, mostly focused on the subjects of mortification and self- sabotage: Share in the schadenfreude, nod sagely at the neuroses, as we discuss …
Joelle Jones joins the show, thanks once again to David Walker, who has to overcome a case of the vapors in order to continue. Luckily, there's no better smelling salt than the stank of "Punisher: War Zone," which Dave gives a quick review of before awarding two thumbs up to …
Ryan Fleming wants to talk about super-hot peppers, Gearbox head Randy Pitchford doing a bad job addressing his developers unfortunate naming conventions, a mini-review of "Sleeping Dogs," some really cool scientific advancements, and some Olympics stuff. And he does. You just have to wade through talking walruses, experimental surgeries, a …
Mike Russell tells us to go on without him, like a hero trapped behind a chainlink fence, providing us with the strength to move on, and become men - just like Harry Dean Stanton did in Red Dawn. Except Harry Dean didn't spend his afternoon getting in water balloon fights …
There are mental images no brain ever had a reason to call into being. Until today. [Download audio file (08092012.mp3)](http://cortandfatboy.cascadiaaudio.com/08092012.mp3)
Courtenay Hameister finds herself in the crosshairs of the internet's most edgy, rock-and-roll feminist mommy blogger. Like any smart person would, she invites parent Cort Webber and professional idiot Bobby Roberts to wander into the firing range, spouting opinions like clouds of flak. Why are so many shots being fired? …
