The acting world recently lost one of its greats. Philip Seymour Hoffman was an immense talent. There is no other way to put it. He had a range, a depth, and an understanding of what acting means that most actors could never dream of achieving.
He could be funny, heartbreaking, and terrifying all in equal understated measure. His acting was about quality, not quantity. He wasn't flashy, because that wasn't the point. He was more than that. He was real, and he will be missed.
That being said, this is also the first time we've recorded in two weeks and there have been some big doings in that time. Clarkson moved into his house, Jim has an offer pending and is not 90% finished with a masters degree. Let's be honest, we are overstimulated children who get even more overstimulated when the mics are in front of us, so we kind of wander a bit. but you have come to expect that.
Also, you can be a part of the show any time you would like. How's that? All you have to do is call or e-mail us. If you live in the US, or any place that makes calling the US easy, just dial 512-666-RANT and leave us a voicemail. We will read the Google Voice transcript and play your message. It's funny AND informative!
If you live outside the us, you can call us on Skype at The_Film_Thugs. You can leave a message, or someone might actually answer!
E-mail us at email@example.com and we will read/play whatever you send us, or you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to be part of an upcoming "ask the Film Thugs" show, where we answer questions without having heard them first.
Also, we are on Twitter @thefilmthugs, and on Facebook.
You can also click on one of our sponsors below and THEY will pay us. That's right. You won't have to pay a PENNY extra, and Amazon/Onnit/Teefury will give us a little taste.
Thank you for listening, and until next week....
