Episode 33: Rome Saves Tom Cruise Movies for Special Occasions

This episode was recorded during the great snowstorm of 2016.

We recap our assignments from last episode, and give each other new assignments. Joel’s assignment is to listen to the Alan Parson’s Project Tales of Mystery and Imagination: Edgar Alan Poe. Rome’s assignment is to partake of a delicious Mac and Cheese Taquito at QuikTrip.

We also pay our respects to the many famous people who have died since our last podcast:

  • David Bowie
  • Natalie Cole
  • Glenn Frey of the Eagles
  • Dan Haggerty, not of the Eagles
  • Alan Rickman

The death of David Bowie and Glenn Frey paint an interesting contrast between the critically acclaimed and the popular. We discuss if this applies to other areas of life.

For this week’s television recommendation, Rome recommends a return to the Metropolis of the 1950’s Adventures of Superman. a time of Truth, Justice, the American Way, and chubby superheroes.
