    hey crank!
    congrats on the no-smoke thing!

    so… its doable!! go for it!

    Mike, watch Rocky Balboa, you crazy person.

    I think the original Rambo “trailer” wasn’t actually a trailer; it was a reel to show either existing or potential investors, if I recall correctly.

  3. Heath Says:

    Sean, you’re right, that early reel of Rambo footage was what he showed at Cannes. Probably some other film festivals too. It was to build anticipation and for it and let people know it wasn’t going to be in the tradition of part 2 and 3, but be more akin to the original.
    Happy Birthday, Mckeever!

    Ah yes, my old friend Nick O’Teen. That wacky mick.

    Ok JOHN RAMBO was a reel rather than a trailer, that would explain it. I get confused easily.

    Hey Crank!
    Im not sure if its itunes being weird but for some reason the show didnt download when i went to update the podcast.

  6. crank! Says:

    grah… did it download at all (even a bit?)?

    I keep seeing other ppl recommending that folks unsubscribe and then re-subscribe when things like this happen, but I’m not sure why things like this happen at all.


  7. theamazingwally Says:

    No worries i was able to download it directly from the website.
    Ill try the unsubscribe resubscribe to see if that works.

    the new itunes saga begins….

  8. Nathan Says:

    Funny…during this whole itunes problem mine has worked fine.

    Remember Crank, if you stop smoking, you don’t have to worry about killing your future cat.

  9. Brian O Says:

    Here’s to hoping you stay strong Crank!.

    Oh and it’s big of you guys to let that old geezer McKeever hang out with you.


    I haven’t experienced any problems getting your show with iTunes.

  10. crank! Says:

    I wonder if future cat will go back in time to hang out with past cat and warn him about a disaster of global proportions… again… like for the third time.

    Thanks for the non-smoking encouragement, if you cheat in your dreams does it count?


  11. Josh S. Says:

    Sorry Mike, it’s just “”Bah weep graaagnah wheep ni ni bong”. I’m only mildly obsessed with that flick. OK, very obsessed.

  12. Nathan Says:

    If your having dreams about smoking I think the issue might be a bit deeper…

  13. G. Noel Gross Says:

    I’m dreaming of a new crankcast.

    Yeah, I know the feeling…

  15. steve Says:

    The delay may be because is readeing the newest issue of Booster Gold

    and re-reading, and re-reading, and re-reading……

    Seriously, it’s an issue I bet Mike will eat up ( no, there are no babies in it…..)

  16. HeadOrange Says:

    Kevin McKid is slated to play Thor.


  17. crank! Says:

    Journeyman Kevin Mckidd?

    Not terribly out of line I guess, but he seems more like the alter ego rather than the buff God of Thunder I think of.
