We covered a lot of ground today. The only thing missing to make this a standard TMP episode is 20 minutes on baseball. Next time! Let's do the stuff!
Pat plays new music from BRONNIE (4:25), shares our one-star reviews (11:21), and rambles on taking movies too seriously (19:21). Then: ruining your house (35:19), dining room etiquette (47:39), and a Flyers Update from The Captain (58:43).

Shoutout to Jen for the suggestion. Thanks for submitting your things, everyone (M-A-G, I'll get to yours on Thanksgiving). Please feel free to leave my show any kind of review and I will read it
and make fun of you on the show.
Why so serious?
I get it: movies mean a lot to many people. But just because you weren't lifted to a higher plane of existence after three hours doesn't mean the people who made the movie are bad. Try to remember that these are made to entertain you. Don't let your own inflated expectations get in the way of that.
Ruining your house
I don't think there are any rules to posting Google Image results, so here we go. This house at the corner used to have a very nice garden in the front and on the side. You can kind of see some foliage on the side in the first picture. Now it looks worse than this (the chain link on top of the original fence is fairly new. I hate it. Keep houses beautiful!
Dining room etiquette
I don't know who isn't teaching people how to behave in public, but they need to step up their game. It is unfathomable to me that adults can't conduct themselves while they're out in the world. Pick up your trash. Stop using speakerphone in public. Push in your chair after you leave a table. We used to be a proper country.
Many thanks to The Captain for dropping in this week. He sent that on Friday, so it's actually one of the most up-to-date submissions he's ever been able to give. Thanks, man!
And that, as we say, is that! Thank you for coming to the table once again. Next week, the show is on Thursday for Thanksgiving. You can listen to me before the football comes on and the yelling begins. Until then, don't do anything I wouldn't do!
Crap open a cold one!
