For our fiftieth Frotcast, we took a look at the movies coming out this summer and played a little Fantasy Box Office.  Basically, we all chose four movies we thought would have the highest opening weekends and one we thought would be the biggest bomb (budget minus earnings).  It’s like fantasy sports, but for something even more fantastical, then made pseudo-scientific, and then back to fantastical again.  I basically got this idea from the Masters of None Show when they had me on, so all credit goes to them for that one.

Besides that, we talked a little about Hangover II, and played a few tracks off Steven Seagal’s new album, Mojo Priest, which has songs called “Alligator Ass” in which Steven Seagal sings blues songs about wanting his lady to cook him scrambled eggs. No joke there, all of that is true.  Email, enjoy, and please tell your friends.


[Many of you wrote emails we very much enjoyed but were too long to read on the air — Blake and his girlfriend’s obnoxious Italian family, Jon and his Ukranian toilets, Feklhr and his encounters in Boston — we love them, guys, keep them coming.]
