On this free wheeling episode of Blerd Radio, Big Money is joined by author, pop culture critic, and all-around mensch Dave Smokler.
Topics covered include:
-"Oz the Great and Powerful": Why's everyone hating?
-The "Police Academy" 2014 reboot: will Steve Guttenberg come back?
-Bing is a viable search engine! Who needs Google? (don't screw my computer up, Google)
-Big Money learns the term "Costanza Ring"
-Who is the "Alpha Baldwin?"
-We talk a little about the lost Blerd Radio podcast with Jesse, and his gift of Dale Jr. potato chips.
-How many people have to be in a sexual scenario before it can be called an orgy?
-Megan Fox's "toe thumb"
and a bit of racial politics are thrown in there as well (for the record, Big Money is black and Dave is Jewish...so don't come after us!)

This one's for the music geeks:
Big Money, Dr. Gonzo, Mike D., and Michael P. discuss the evolution of the greatest hits album. What started them? Why are they popular? Which artists are best served by compilations? Which artists will never release a greatest hits album? Which artists have too many greatest hits albums?
Along the way, several tangents are explored, including:
One of us has smoked too much pot in his life to only own one Bob Marley album.
For all our freestyle fanatics, Stevie B. gets a shout out!
Anyone else know that U.K. band Squeeze re-recorded all their hit singles a few years ago?
Does anyone know that more recently, Toad the Wet Sprocket re-recorded all of their hit singles (plus a few key album tracks.)
Aunt Bunny fell down the steps!
Mike D. does a pretty good Billy Joel (speaking, not singing) impression.
The gorilla from the Rolling Stones "GRRRR" album has a name. And a twitter.
Why does anyone prefer Prince's version of "Nothing Compares 2 U" to Sinead O' Connor's?
Also, there are dick jokes, Jay-Z stabbing jokes, and even a Clive Davis gay joke for your giggling pleasure.
