If it's crap ... We'll tell you
So, today is my 24th birthday and it wouldn't be right if I didn't do a special post for today.
But not only is this posting going to be about myself, but it's also going to be about Spill.com itself.
Coming off its' second Podcast Awards win, I felt that it would be appropriate to look back at the past year of Spill.com by counting down my top 10 favorite podcasts of the past year.
This list can include the regular podcasts (ACOCO, Let's Do This, LEOG, Loading Bar, Remote Viewing), special podcasts, and even audio reviews. Everything's on the table and can qualify for this list.
So, without further ado, let's get right to it. These are my top 10 favorite Spill moments of 2012.
10. LET'S DO THIS -- AUGUST 8, 2012
This was the podcast where Korey wasn't involved and Billy, Co-Host, and Leon took over and gave Korey a beatdown that makes me laugh every time I listen to it. In addition, we get a lot of really good conversations about the Olympics and great TV shows. It was a good enjoyable podcast that makes me laugh every time I listen to it.
9. A COUPLE OF COLD ONES -- NOVEMBER 12, 2012
The best ACOCO I listened to all year. I really had a good time with this with Korey and Leon giving us a hilarious story after hilarious story throughout the entire podcast. From Korey's mom letting him watch the Playboy channel as a child to a screwed up dinner party to the kid yelling "SANTA" and pissing all over himself, this episode was the funniest ACOCO of 2012 by far.
8. THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: BLUE CHRISTMAS 2012
The Blue Christmas episodes are always known to be the LEOG's most over-the-top episodes but this year had more over-the-top and hilarious episodes than usual that this episode had to be this low on the list.
That being said, I had a good time listening to this as expected with Blue Christmas episodes. Got a lot of great laughs, especially with John Rubio's rant against Honey Boo Boo, which is possibly the funniest thing he's ever uttered on the show.
While I don't agree with everything the crew said on this show (particularly all the hate for The Dark Knight Rises), this year's Blue Christmas episode definitely deserves to join the past Blue Christmases as great podcasts.
7. CHERNOBYL DIARIES REVIEW
In terms of the audio reviews, this was a close second to the Cosmopolis review, which is a great review of an artsy movie getting a well deserved beating. However, the Chernobyl Diaries review made me laugh much harder.
This is my second favorite review of the year because I loved listening to Korey losing his goddamn mind over how unscary this piece of shit was. Having actually seen this movie, I'm with him on everything he said. This was a terrible movie that deserved to get the bashing it deserves and the Spill crew definitely delivered that bashing.
6. THE OOGIELOVES IN THE BIG BALLON ADVENTURE REVIEW
Easily the best review Spill has released in years. This movie just looks terrible and the fact that the studio distributing it really believed that people would be dumb enough to go see it, I knew that it was going to lead to something great from the Spill crew.
Sure enough, The Oogieloves review turns into one of the funniest reviews in years, maybe since the Daddy Day Camp review. I mean, this just made me laugh so hard to see them give this movie the bashing of a lifetime, especially when they talk about Chazz Palminteri's character.
If you haven't listened to this review, and I don't see how you couldn't, definitely check it out.
5. THE SPILL BEST AND WORST OF 2011 PODCASTS
Granted, we waited four months for both the best and worst of 2011 from Spill but it was indeed worth the wait.
The best of the year list was very worth listening to but it was the worst of the year podcast that was the most fun just to hear as Korey, Leon, Cyrus, and Co-Host 3000 not only express their hate for the movies of 2011 but also destroy the people who made them. Their rant with Adam Sandler and Kevin James alone made me laugh for 10 minutes straight the first time around.
Just two really great podcasts that were long overdued. Can't wait until 2016 for the best and worst lists of 2012 ;)
4. THE SPILL CHRISTMAS SPECIAL 2012
This needs to be a new tradition at Spill.com, just have Korey, Leon, Cyrus, and Co-Host together talking about how Christmas used to be for them looking back at toys and Christmas specials and also giving away presents.
A fun solid podcast that features the Spill crew at their best getting together and looking back on some of their childhood memories. Hope to see it returns next Christmas.
3. THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: FIELD TRIP
A laugh-out-loud LEOG episode which features so many great stories and jokes that just work so well. The best starts in the second half when they get into the news and discuss The Dark Knight Rises trailer and continues into the spoiler discussions for Cabin In The Woods and The Avengers.
Just so much great comedy in this episode, it's one of the LEOG's best episodes.
2. THE LEAGUE OF EXTREMELY ORDINARY GENTLEMEN: HEARTLESS
Who would've thought anybody could make cancer just as funny as the Archer episode?
But LEOG pulled it off by doing an entire episode with some of the funniest cancer jokes I've ever heard. I know I'm not suppose to laugh but it's still really hilarious as they constantly make humor with cancer, even Randy (who had cancer at the time of this podcast's debut) cracking jokes back and forth.
It also managed to have a Michael J. Fox joke that made me laugh a lot too. It's quick but once you hear it, it's wrong but hilarious. Much like this episode was.
and the #1 Spill moment of 2012 is...
LET'S DO THIS -- FEBRUARY 14, 2012
This is the best moment of the year for me because of just how insanely cruel Korey and Leon are to Billy in this episode. Billy got the shit smacked out of him in this episode.
From an anatomy of a joke to watching the video of the guy who shot up his daughter's laptop and at the same time, going all on Billy's ass about how he grew up as a kid. All of it is 100% hilarious and I still laugh everytime I listen to it.
It also has my favorite Spill line of the year, "I see you're keeping it real, Nathalion." That just made me laugh as hard as it made Leon laugh.
This was indeed my favorite podcast of the year and my favorite moment of the year as well.
So, that's my wrap up of the year's best podcasts and moments of Spill.com and here's hoping for some more great moments in 2013.
Also, thanks to everybody out there for all the birthday wishes. I really appreciate it.
