Episode #132: Michael Cera

It’s our belief that it should be a rare thing to remake a movie.  However, if a movie is going to be remade Michael Cera should be a part of that remake.  At least, that’s our contention and discussion for this week’s episode of the Brick Room.  We recorded this awhile ago, so apologies if some stuff is out of date, but Michael Cera always holds up.

Episode #131: The Future Is Now, Part II

In today’s podcast we continue our discussion from a few episodes ago and talk about things that should have happened by now in our real world if the world of movies was true.  For instance, if the events of 2001, A Space Odyssey, and it’s sequel, 2010, are true then we should have massive spacecraft traveling throughout our solar system right now.  What else should we have that we are missing out on.  Today, we figure it out.

Brick Room regular, Gordy, is back for this episode that was, admittedly, recorded some time ago.  Forgive us.  Our hectic lives interrupted our regular recording and posting schedule, but we are correcting that and you can count on regular content from The Brick Room moving forward.

Episode #130: Star Wars vs Harry Potter

Which universe is cooler?  Star Wars or Harry Potter?  Is a Jedi more powerful than a wizard?

More than anything else, these are the questions on everyone’s mind right now in this country and The Brick Room is here to help you learn the answers.

Disclaimer, this podcast was recorded a few weeks ago so some comments may be out of date, but Star Wars and Harry Potter are timeless.  Grab a glass of blue milk or butterbeer (whichever you prefer) and listen in as we solve the world’s problems.

Episode #129: More Sports!

It’s that time again, everyone! That’s right, a new Brick Room! We are par for the course this week where we talk about the similarities between Football and Sex in the City (yeah, I know!)

We get into sports again and explore how they would be played in different weather conditions and which conditions would be the best!

We get talking about Canadians and their Capt. America parallel as well…

Let us know what you think and share with your friends!

 

Episode #128: The Future Is Now!

According to Back To The Future II, we should have self lacing shoes, flying cars, food rehydration machines, and all sorts of other cool stuff by now.  In fact, we should have had all that stuff by 2015.  If the terminator movies are to be believed the entire world should a post apocalyptic wasteland right now.  What other movie predictions have failed to come true?  Are there any movie prediction that have come true?  Of course there are hundreds of movies that make predictions about the future and we can’t cover them all, but Marc found a website that lists some of these predictions, in “movie world” chronological order.

In this week’s podcast we explore some of those predictions and compare them to our actual reality.  If Stanley Kubrick could predict the future we would have had enormous spaceships flying manned missions to Jupiter by 2001.  That obviously didn’t happen.  What else didn’t happen.  Listen in and find out.

Episode #127 – Sport

Hey guys! This week we talk a little about film but we also talk about sport (as the British call it. This isn’t actually referenced at all this episode) and what actually goes through a peak athletes brain as they perform basically miracles with their bodies. Football players are basically human car accidents too… FYI…

ALSO!… There’s a new game show that we’re certain will not be on the air in the near future called “The Wall”, a giant plinko styled competition… We get into that a bit…

Which cause us to talk about Reality TV and how it may be a good thing if applied to something like NASA.

Which leads us to thinking about which famous people will be the first to go be famous in space.

What do you guys think? Is the future of NASA basically VH1? Let us know!

Finally, to Elon Musk, you can go a head and let us know too, what you think about our plan.

Thanks and enjoy!

 

 

 

Episode #126: Selling and 3d Printing

You’re a salesman.  What’s the best way to approach a customer?  Do you walk up and say, “Do you have any questions about that merchandise?”  That’s a direct way of opening a conversation.  The customer is looking at your products and you offer to help.  Or, is it better to start with some small talk?  We discuss this in today’s podcast and Marc brings up some sales techniques he was taught during his time working on the sales floor of a big store.

Of course, after this discussion we move to talk about 3D printing and how 3D printers can be used to help commit crime.  3D printers are the crime tool of the future.  We think so because one day people will be able to print a gun in their home.  No more buying illegal firearms from the trunk of a car if you’re a bad dude looking to commit crime.  You’ll be able to do it from the comfort of your own home.  We suppose 3D printers will also be able to print other stuff but we just like talking about guns.

Grab your drink and listen in.  You might learn a think or two about how to be an efficient salesman (or an efficient criminal).
