The Fellowship is pleased to present our discussion of Bugs Bunny on his 80th birthday. His first "official" appearance was in July 1940, though he had been evolving for a couple of years by then. We're all big Looney Tunes fans around here, let me tell ya. We talk about the wascally wabbit, some of his co-stars, a bit about his creators, a little bit of a tangent about modifying the classics, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.

The Fellowship is pleased to present our 7/11 episode, in which we discuss The Magnificent Seven and Ocean's Eleven, both 60 years old now. These are both important movies in their genres, being westerns and buddy movies respectively. We talk about the impact of each film, the iconic-ness of each, other movies that tried to do the same (maybe less successfully), the idea of celebrity then and now, and a bunch of stuff in between. Plus our usual tangents galore and our comics picks of the week.
