000 – F9 (2021) Trailer – Supplemental Commentary Track

Right before we summarized the madness glimpsed by our non-stop watching of all eight Fast & Furious movies, we watched and spoke over the trailer for the upcoming, ninth installment of the sprawling franchise, F9.

000 – The Fast and the Furious (2001) – Supplemental Commentary Track

Listen and watch along with us and our unhinged rambling, while cars become Cars, family becomes Family, Ja Rule and nü-metal triumph together, and product placement reaches into your brain, causing an insatiable thirst for Corona (cerveza, non-virulent), nitrous oxide, and a Sobe/Snapple/Pizza Hut chaser to be smashed into your face as you drive your skydiving car out of an airplane one quarter mile at a time.

§

Also, you’ll hear literal crickets throughout the track due to my window being open on a humid summer night right next to my microphone.

§

The first movie finishes playing at 103:43:00 and we start the second one soon after. However, the recording cuts out at 138:08:00 due to my SD card reaching its limit on my recording console, so you’ll have to imagine the rest of what we had to say about 2 Fast 2 Furious. We scrapped the idea of recording commentary for all eight movies mainly because I didn’t want to listen back to that much footage searching for good bits to insert into our overview of the franchise episode.

§

Enjoy this if you dare tread.

§

Live your life one 1/4 mile at a time. Because “family.”

003 – The 21st Century as Seen Through a Furious Franchise

Immediately after recording our previous episode, we moved the recording equipment in front of the TV, and began to watch all eight of the movies from the Fast & Furious franchise, in a single, virtually uninterrupted, sitting. We'd never seen any of these movies prior. We laughed and cried (and cried and laughed about it all again) through approximately 16 hours of running time. We reflect upon this very ill-advised act during today's episode.

What? Who?

Heat Death of the Universe is an End-Times-inspired podcast about a wide range of subjects falling under the enormous Janus-faced purview of cultural and political commentary. Hosted by two long-time expatriated US citizens living in South Korea, mainly Seoul.

Joshua Nomen-Mutatio currently teaches liberal arts to precocious child geniuses in the infamous Gangnam district, enjoys Latin-based pseudonyms (not really, just the one), makes percussive patterns with Gorymurgy, and lives on a high elevation hill in the oldest village in Seoul.

JD Newland teaches little humans in a less bourgeois area than Gangnam, but it’s bourgie enough. He enjoys the finest things in life such as scouring the Internet, endlessly scrolling on a plethora of devices, and consumption of all sorts. He lives at the base of Namsan, a mountain in Seoul and home to the city’s most famous tower.

002 – The Bone-Chilling Cackle of Kamala Harris

We’ve returned, against the odds, with a conversation centered around the news of Kamala Harris becoming the VP candidate alongside Joe “C’mon, Man” Biden. The centerpiece of the episode was the Jacobin article “Joe Biden Has Found His Neoliberal Match in Kamala Harris” by Branko Marcetic.

001 – Tactical Baby Holsters

After pushing through the knotty chaos of equipment acquisition stumbling blocks, a self-taught crash course in sound engineering and editing, relearning how to think and speak in the context of Podcast, and the evergreen, debilitating, self-conscious states of our very minds, we offer up this inaugural episode. We blindly delve into some truncated and often misleading news headlines, predict their contents, then reveal the actual gristle and bone behind their clickbait exteriors.
