Mitt Romney's Gay Lover AND Running Mate

A column article, Paranoid Video by: Dylan Garsee

No longer content to merely review television through the creative use of Friskies gifs and awkward jokes, Dylan Garsee and Nick Hanover have moved on to the internet airwaves, co-hosting CB's own entertainment podcast, Paranoid Video.

Paranoid Video Episode 1.11-

"Mitt Romney's Gay Lover AND Running Mate"

Sorry it took so long for this episode to go live, folks. Dylan and I were still recovering from SDCC. By which I mean I exhausted myself demanding that Dylan finish up the SDCC essays he still owes me and Dylan wasted his time watching trashy tv. Anyway, this week we have a super exciting episode for you, with a roundtable discussion about waiting to get around to art you know is good and a guest interview with Scott Aukerman. As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here

Our roundtable with special guests Janelle Revord and Ryan Usher begins at 8:35 and ends at 58:18, but don't worry, in the span of that fifty minute conversation we also found time to mock Newsroom and NBC and spin off into a discussion about works that have aged surprisingly well.


Nate MacDonald, the co-host of Paranoid Video's BFF/Arch-nemesis Comics You Can Dance To, dropped by to chat with Scott Aukerman about his new IFC show Comedy Bang! Bang!, which is based off his own podcast with the same name. That interview, which was conducted live at SDCC a few weeks ago, starts at 58:49 and ends at 76:07.


The theme song and namesake for the show is Total Control's excellent "Paranoid Video". The bumper music this week was Chaz Jankel's "Whisper (ft. Laura Weymouth)", PLVS VLTRA's "The Level" and Grasshoppers' "I Am There," respectively.

And in case you want to know what we look like, here is a visual representations of Dylan and myself, courtesy of Emily Marie Palmer:

Dylan Garsee is a freelance writer/bingo enthusiast currently living in Austin, TX. He is studying sociology, and when he's not winning trivia nights at pork-themed restaurants, writing a collection of essays on the gay perspective in geek culture. An avid record collector, Dylan can mostly be seen at Waterloo Records, holding that one God Speed You! Black Emperor record he can't afford and crying. You can follow him on twitter @garseed.

When he's not writing about the cape and spandex set and functioning as the Co-Managing Editor of Comics Bulletin, Nick Hanover is a book, film and music critic who has contributed to Spectrum Culture, No Tofu Magazine, Performer Magazine, Port City Lights and various other international publications.
