Paranoid Video 1.20- Hate, Rain on Me: Twilight, Geek on Geek Hate and 2012's Disappointments

A column article, Paranoid Video by: Dylan Garsee, Nick Hanover

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 1.20-

"Hate, Rain on Me."

We didn't originally plan it this way, but this episode of Paranoid Video is the first of a two-parter. The featured discussion centered around Twilight and geek on geek hate before we launched into our list of the Top 5 Disappointments of 2012 (see? no hate! actually, that's not entirely accurate, as you'll see). We'll be following this up with our Top 5 Positive Surprises of 2012, so keep your eye on the site.

As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here

The intro this week is just an excuse for us to have a bumper spot for Andrew Jackson Jihad's "Hate, Rain on Me" but it runs until 8:00. We start our Twilight quasi-defense talk at 8:40 and that runs until 36:41. The image Dylan put together that we mention is this one:


You can listen to the "lost" 4th Paranoid Video episode at the player below or download it here. This is the one about Girls.


The Twilight business ended at 36:31 and we took a break to play Police Teeth's "Hatebuttoned," before starting our Disappointments of 2012 talk at 37:14, that continues to the end. 


Of course, what you really want is to meet Dylan's new friend, Jason "Yakety" Sacksboy. So without further ado, here he is:

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