JoBlo Movie Podcast: Game of Thrones: Book vs. Screen, The Croods, Voicemail Attack!
From joblo.com

There's a lot going on in this week's show. Some good, same bad, most of it I've already forgotten. Moreno get serious about his love of the Game of Thrones books and explains to us why the hardcore fans of the pages are getting a little pissed with the TV show. The boys take some voicemails where they are handed reviews for OBLIVION and LORDS OF SALEM, asked for their take on the ridiculous price of movie-going, and consider this month's Podcast Movie Commentary. Law watches a bunch of random awful movies (JACK & JILL, THE SITTER), revisits a couple great ones (STEP BROTHERS, ROLE MODELS), tries to act like he knows stuff about CLOUD ATLAS (he doesn't), and comments on the evolution of douchebaggery in Dane Cook's stand up specials.

Soon after that is an epic look at the original Rambo trilogy. From the film's titles to the impressive body and length of Rambo's hair, the boys leave nothing out. There's also a review of FREAKY DEAKY, based on the Elmore Leonard novel, and a quick visit to the New Releases of the week.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: The Top Gun Commentary!
From joblo.com

What better way to celebrate Valentime's Month (it's a month now, right?) than to listen to The JoBlo Movie Podcast commentary for Top Gun! I mean, it's like a love story, right? We ponder a variety of ridiculous topics, such as: does the Air Force have a height requirement? Because Principal Strickland is short as fuck. Why doesn't Goose take his shirt off? Why do we WANT him to take his shirt off? And did you know Tim Robbins is up in this bitch? We're skeptical, since he has a helmet on the whole time. Come for the volleyball scene (heh, no really), stay for a drunken, nonsensical dissection of Tony Scott's 80s classic!

JoBlo Movie Podcast: The Walking Dead is Losing Us! Searching For Sugar Man & The Package Reviewed!
From joblo.com

We sat down in the quiet before the Oscar storm and got drunk. This is what happened. Moreno watches SEARCHING FOR SUGAR MAN, BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD, and the de-gansterization of Ice Cube. Law checks out the evolving legend of Stone Cold Steve Austin in THE PACKAGE. Together, the boys try to figure out exactly why 'The Walking Dead' is trying to piss them off. Moreno finishes up with 'House of Cards', and Law is still on board with 'Banshee'. It's all fighting, f*cking, and full frontal - there's nothing not to love with this show. Stay tuned later this month for our TOP GUN Commentary. It's the gayest thing ever.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: The Walking Dead Returns! A Good Day to Die Hard Reviewed!
From joblo.com

The great Jimmy O joins the boys to discuss his love/hate relationship with A GOOD DAY TO DIE HARD, hosting the upcoming EVIL DEAD marathon in L.A., and how to lose one hundred pounds. The TV Round-Up fattens itself up again with the return of 'The Walking Dead' and the addition of 'Banshee'. Law and Moreno also talk 'House of Cards', ROOM 237, movies they used to hate and now love, Valentine's Day gifts, and cinematic urban legends.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: Why Boba Fett Should Be the First Star Wars Spin-Off! The Master Reviewed!
From joblo.com

TV Round-Up makes room for some more quality shows as Law and Moreno add 'House of Cards' and 'Legit' to the mix. There's also some interest in 'The King of The Nerds' (only because Lewis and Booger are involved) and continued support of 'Justified' and 'The Americans'. Law tries not to be intellectually bullied by THE MASTER and ends up finding his favorite performance of 2012. From there the boys take a look at New Releases and try to figure out who is excited for a new DIE HARD movie (it's not us or Bruce Willis) and, thanks to another voicemail, Law gets to make his case as to why the first STAR WARS spin-off movie should be about Boba Fett. Yoda, it shouldn't be.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: Reviews of The Sessions, Stand Up Guys, Lincoln, Hitchcock, and More!
From joblo.com

There's lots to talk about on the new JoBlo Movie Podcast so the boys get right down to it. TV Round-Up catches up with 'Justified' and adds 'The Americans' to the mix. What We Watched lets loose with reviews of THE SESSIONS, STAND UP GUYS, LINCOLN, HITCHCOCK, PITCH PERFECT, DREDD, FLIGHT, and THE HOBBIT. A quick look at what's coming out this week during New Releases and a fun little theory that lets us blame Steven Spielberg if the new STAR WARS movie suck a-holes. Don't forget to vote for our February Commentary - TOP GUN or TRUE ROMANCE? It's up to you. And thus it's your fault when it sucks.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: The Grey Commentary!
From joblo.com

The JoBlo Movie Podcast returns with another commentary, this time for the movie that topped Moreno's best of 2012 list and made it to number 3 on Jim Law's (really 15 but whatevs), Joe Carnahan's THE GREY. The boys discuss what it'd be like to be stranded in the Alaskan wilderness (they'd kill themselves on the plane), the criticism it received for how the wolves behaved (when's the last time you hung out with a wolf, bitch?), and how THE GREY can be an all out dude movie with dude emotions without dumbing everyone down (except if you listen to this commentary). Which characters would Moreno and Law be in the movie? We describe the movie as very moody, but what the f*ck does that even mean? Does it cut itself? Come for the drunken commentary, stay for some of Moreno's douchey high school poetry. For real.

What We Watched delivers reviews of SILVER LININGS PLAYBOOK, THE LAST STAND, THIS IS 40, and Moreno's drunk WILLY WONKA sing-a-long.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: Oscar Noms Talk, Reviews of Gangster Squad, Zero Dark, & John Dies at the End!
From joblo.com

Law and Moreno kick things off with a discussion of the Oscar nominations and the fact that they haven't seen anything that matters to the Academy. Losers. They did, however, check out a bunch of stuff for your listening pleasure. Reviews come fast and furious as they take shots at GANGSTER SQUAD, ZERO DARK THIRTY, JOHN DIES AT THE END, FRANKENWEENIE, HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA, and PREMIUM RUSH. From there the boys contemplate Hollywood's most overrated actresses, get some updates on the thriving success of Movie Jail, and take a look at what's coming out this week in New Releases.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: Our Favorite Films of 2012! The Hobbit & Flight Reviewed!
From joblo.com

Last week was all about Jimmy O and Chris Bumbray's Best of the year lists, this week we get our say. Law and Moreno count down their respective Top Ten of 2012 lists and try to screw it up as little as possible. There's some late entries, some movies get shuffled around, and one film gets the boot. Otherwise it's pretty tight. Moreno then goes on to review THE HOBBIT while Law sits down with FLIGHT. Some New Releases, a couple burps and we're out. Welcome to the new 2013 JoBlo Movie Podcast. Our resolution was to quit drinking. Things didn't work out.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: The Avengers Commentary!
From joblo.com

The JoBlo Movie Podcast rings in 2013 (F the Mayans) with a commentary for the highly anticipated and biggest grossing movie of 2012, Marvel's The Avengers. How does so much goodness get packed into one movie? How does Thor keep the balance of body and weight in his enviable hair? Is Scarlett Johannson going to take her shirt off or what? There's talk of which superhero we wanted to be when we grew up (and now), why the aliens at the end look like Orcs (not really), and how the "one shot" at the end could be one of the best sequences of the year.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: Jimmy O vs. Chris Bumbray in the Battle of the Best Films of the Year!
From joblo.com

Jimmy O and Chris Bumbray have been the leading film reviewers for JoBlo.com for years. They consider themselves friends and great colleagues but have never had the opportunity to actually sit down and speak to each other about movies. Now they have. Moreno and Law take a open the floor to the two Podcast regulars as they each give us the run-down on their own Top Ten Lists from 2012. There's yelling, there's cursing, there's bromance, and there sure as hell is a lot of secret piss breaks for Law and Moreno. Keep talking boys. Come join us for our end of the year celebration with two of our favorite guests, a few dozen beers, and more LES MISERABLES talk than you ever thought you could sit through. I left a couple times. Stay tuned later this week for our AVENGERS Commentary and stupid tweets @TheJoBloPodcast. Happy New Year, yo.

From joblo.com

Sometimes shows are just epic. Law and Moreno are joined by the great Eric Walkuski as he delivers his thoughts on THE HOBBIT, DJANGO UNCHAINED, and ZERO DARK THIRTY. Then 'The Wire' alum, Pablo Schreiber stops by to talk about his new film, ALLEGIANCE, audio books, and yes, The Wire. If that's not enough for you we get one of the smoothest men on the planet, Common, to join us to chat about his latest film, LUV. From there, what's left of the boys deliver their own reviews of CLOUD ATLAS (the greatest Johnny Moreno review ever), PUNCTURE, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER, SLEEPWALK WITH ME, and BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD. Still not enough? How about a voicemail from Steven Seagal's mom (note: we are unclear on whether or not this is Steven Seagal's mom) scolding Jim Law on his interviwing capabilities and the raising of his children. We'll even throw in a hate filled voicemail review of THE BOURNE LEGACY, some minor TV Round-Up as we wait for the end of Homeland, and the highs and lows of Decembeard. Be sure to check out our pod-crash on the AITH show this Wednesday. Our children are ashamed of us.

From joblo.com

Better late than never, that's what my grandfather used to say. But he was late for his own funeral, so what the flying fuck did he know anyway? Moreno gives Law the week off so he could shove more beer in his face area, then goes solo on the epic season finale round up of Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy, and The Walking Dead. From there, the great Jimmy O stops by to talk about seeing the first 9 minutes of STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS and the boys get into a heated debate on the merits of Expendables 2 (there are none). New Releases and a voicemail roll call leaves us with questions on where Homeland is headed and why Killing Them Softly sucks so hard.

From there it's all New Releases and drunken slurs. Enjoy.

JoBlo Movie Podcast: They Live Commentary!
From joblo.com

What better way to come down from the presidential election blues than by watching John Carpenter's look at shadow governments, sedation and obedience by consumerism, and Keith David in Lakers' colors. It's the 1987 cult classic THEY LIVE and we break this puppy down like Roddy Piper with a pickaxe. Seriously Roddy, why you gotta be all buff and manly and shit? Drink with us as we try to figure out if that old guy is "Red" from BACK TO THE FUTURED. Marvel as WE marvel at the broad with the creepiest eyes of all time. Seriously, is she about to turn into the Hulk or is she "one of them"? The movie starts as one thing, then someone zips through space on their watch. Gotta get me one of them shits.

TV Round-Up is in full effect with reviews of great episodes by Homeland, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead, and Boardwalk Empire. There's tons to look at in New Releases, some ass-kissing voicemail, and a disturbing call from Jax Teller that proves to us, once and for all that he's losing his mind. For the club. Stay tuned later this week for our THEY LIVE Commentary!

From joblo.com

Moreno is back in studio and sounding sexy as ever. And he's fresh off a visit to Chicago's Days of the Dead Horror Convention where he witnessed lots of carnage and inappropriate t-shirts. TV Round-Up is as feisty as ever as we try to figure out where SOA and The Walking Dead are headed for their season finales. The boys get deep into reviews for END OF WATCH, LAWLESS, and TOTAL RECALL, take a look at what's new this week in theaters and shelves and try to figure out their first "after the credits" scene experience via voicemail. All this and some fake movie advice from Moreno. Call in this week and ask some real questions. We're pathetic.

Updates from the Veterans History Project (VHP): In Memoriam: Norman Mineta
From https:

VHP joins the nation in mourning the loss of Norman Mineta, a U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War and trailblazer who passed away on May 3, 2022 at the age of 90.

During his lifetime of achievements, Mineta was the first Asian American to be elected as mayor of a major U.S. city, and the first Japanese-American Member of Congress to be elected from the lower 48 states—an office he held for more than two decades. He went on to serve as U.S. Secretary of Commerce and later, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation. Mineta was also instrumental in awarding the Congressional Medal of Honor to veterans of the 442nd Regimental Combat Team, the U.S. Army’s segregated Japanese-American World War II combat unit. 

VHP is honored to count Mineta’s oral history interview among its collections and is grateful to the Japanese-American Veterans Association (JAVA) for submitting it. Watch his full interview, here. 

The mission of the Veterans History Project of the Library of Congress American Folklife Center is to collect, preserve and make accessible the personal accounts of U.S. military war veterans so that future generations may hear directly from veterans and better understand what they did, saw and felt.

Updates from the Veterans History Project (VHP): A Memoriam for the Honorable Max Cleland: Soldier, Statesman, and Senate Sponsor for the Library of Congress Veterans History Project
From https:

The Veterans History Project joins the nation in mourning the Honorable Max Cleland. A U.S. Senator, Department of Veterans Affairs Administrator, and Vietnam War veteran who dedicated his life to family, country, and the comrades who joined him in service to our country.

During the Battle of Khe Sanh, Cleland lost both legs and his right arm to a grenade explosion. Drawing on his own experience of pain, depression, and frustration, he rose up to accomplish significant improvements for veterans returning from war. He became the youngest Administrator in the history of the Veterans Administration and served a term as U.S. Senator from Georgia. In 2000, he co-sponsored the “Veterans’ Oral History Project Act” and for the next five years, lent his voice to the Project’s annual radio series chronicling veterans’ stories.

While we are deeply saddened to learn of his passing, we take solace that Max Cleland will continue to inspire future generations. Through his actions, he, along with more than 100,000 comrades, will continue to inspire future generations through the Veterans History Project. Hear more of his incredible story, in his own words.

Updates from the Veterans History Project (VHP): In Memoriam: Joseph G. "Joe" Galloway
From https:

The Veterans History Project joins the nation in remembering Joseph G. Galloway. We thank "Joe" for his intersectional oral history recordings with the Department of Defense Vietnam War 50th Commemoration, where he interviewed more than 150 Vietnam War veterans for the Project. In 2017, he joined peer interviewers at the Library of Congress for "On the Other Side of the Mic," an event focused on interviewers' best practices and tips gleaned from years of experience.  

Galloway began his 22-year career at United Press International (UPI) in 1961. From the American Midwest to Asia, he served in nearly a dozen news bureaus. In April 1965, shortly after the first American troops arrived in Vietnam, Galloway began a 16-month stint in Vietnam as a UPI war correspondent. By war's end, he had completed three additional tours, his last one covering the Fall of Saigon in 1975. He went on to serve as the senior editor and senior writer for U.S. News & World Report magazine and as the senior military correspondent for Knight Ridder Newspaper.

The former combat photographer also served as a U.S. State Department special consultant to General Colin Powell and co-authored several books. Galloway is most often recognized as the co-author of the national bestselling book “We Were Soldiers Once…And Young” with General Harold "Hal" Moore. The book centers on the Battle of Ia Drang, where Moore received the Distinguished Service Cross and Galloway earned the Bronze Star Medal. "Joe" is the only non-combatant who has earned that award for heroism during the Vietnam War. Their book became a feature film starring actor Mel Gibson as General Moore and actor Barry Pepper as Joe Galloway. 

Thank you, Mr. Galloway for collecting and preserving stories from our nation's Vietnam War veterans.

In 2019, Senator Enzi recorded his oral history interview for the Project, choosing his longtime friend and tribal liaison Scott Ratliff as the interviewer. His participation energized local recordings with Wyoming veterans’ interviews and ensured their voices would be heard - and forever preserved - at the Library of Congress.

Updates from the Veterans History Project (VHP): VHP Director Karen Lloyd Retires
From https:

After 16 years of service with the Library, including four and a half years as the director of the Veterans History Project, Karen Lloyd retired from the Library of Congress on April 9th. Recently, she led a number of significant efforts to develop women veterans’ collections including a nascent collaborative agreement to pursue collections with the Veteran Administration’s Center for Women Veterans. During her tenure, VHP also expanded outreach to more Native/Indigenous veterans to preserve their stories as part of VHP’s collections.

The Library is enthusiastic about building on these accomplishments and other great programs developed during Karen Lloyd’s tenure at the Veterans History Project. Including Ms. Lloyd, over the 20 year history of VHP’s five directors, Ellen McCulloch Lovell, Beverly Lindsay, Diane Kresh and Bob Patrick led the development of a remarkable repository highlighting the first-person experiences of US veterans now resulting in over 111,000 individual collections housed in the American Folklife Center (AFC). The next director will be well positioned to help usher VHP into a new realm of collections stewardship and digital discovery, together with the American Folklife Center they will align practices and increase access to the collections. The Library will begin the process of announcing the position and selecting a new VHP Director in the near future. In the interim, AFC Director Betsy Peterson will serve as Acting Director for the Veterans History Project.

We mourn the loss of Don Moore, a consummate volunteer who singlehandedly interviewed and submitted the collections of more than 500 Florida-area veterans since 2010. Summary records for each veteran are accessible on VHP’s website, loc.gov/vets.  

Moore was a journalist for the “Charlotte Sun” newspaper in Florida, and because of his profession, he was able to publish a feature story on each veteran. Not only that, but he also posted the articles on his website, donmooreswartales.com, and then added them to the site’s searchable archive.

Moore’s widow, Mary, promised to keep her husband’s memory alive through his website, and to deliver his last batch of interviews to VHP.

Thank you for your commitment to preserving veterans’ voices until the very end, sir.
