This past week, Steve Jobs passed away. He is known as the godfather of Apple. He was the face of their product up until he stepped down amid his bouts with cancer. When that cancer took his life, he was hailed as a visionary. Many claimed he changed how we as consumers view computers and computer projects. Well, I think we should stop short before we deify him.

BREAKING NEWS: Matt Damon, Liam Neeson and Jason Statham are set to star in a re-make of the action and adventure classic The Great Escape. No, that is not true at all. I apologize if I got your hopes up because a re-make with those three would be epic. Imagine Damon as “The Cooler King,” Neeson as “The Scrounger” and Statham as “The Tunnel King.” That thought certainly brings a smile to my face. That is the power of cinema though, more so than literature or video games. Just the slightest notion of our favorite stars comprising characters or roles elicits instant excitement because of the performance they can bring. For me, they contain the best ability to create happiness when my mood is bleak.
We open the show with a review of Drive, starring Ryan Gosling. Then Matt and Andrew talk about the newest video game releases(can anyone figure out why Andrew is on British time?). Thom loaned Andrew “Potty Mouth” by Doug Benson and they talk about that. Also, Thursday is always Game Day! The CBYHS theme for the week is “Based on Literature.” The trailers for Trailer Trash(or Treasure!) are Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, Shut Up Little Man: An Audio Misadventure, and Berlin 36. Also we guess the ending for Killer Elite. Come back on Tuesday to download the newest episode and check out our blogs on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at nevpodcast.com.

This past Monday was a big night for Charlie Sheen. His show Two and a Half Men gained it’s best ratings in six years. He was also the subject of the most recent Comedy Central Roast. This guy is unstoppable, right?
Thom talks about TV shows he was excited about, including Ringer, Free Agents, and Whitney. Andrew watched some mediocre films such as Doc Hollywood and I Was a Male War Bride. The big news, besides some Emmy results, is about Netflix’s decision to become two seperate companies. Stay tuned until the end to hear a special Birthday song requested by Kevin Mastron set to Clint Eastwood by The Gorillaz.

Apple bugs me. No, not apples with bugs in them, but Apple computers; although bug infested apples might be just as unsettling. Regardless, I have never been a fan of the computer manufacturer. Sure, when I was a child I wanted a Mac to print out unmarked checks and subsequently rub up next to Karen Duffy like Preston Waters in Blank Check, but then again, what boy did not want that?

I came to an odd conclusion last week. I was sitting in the movie theatre at the Long Beach Towne Centre, watching Colombiana with the Nerd’s Eye View crew and a thought crossed my mind. This thought had almost nothing to do with the movie I was watching. The thought was…
