Sneaky Dragon Episode 332

by David Dedrick on April 14, 2018

Hola, Sneakers! This week on Episode 332 of Sneaky Dragon things get uncomfortable and awkward.

So same old same old then. Like: Ian and Dave get mad; Ian is allergic to Don Martin; whither original art; we have a library spy; Timewell is a terrible title; Timecop misinformation; Ian likes Mike; lovely Rita; the show takes a turn; more car troubles; breathalyzer outrage; playing possum; hiding a key pro-tip; famous water skier; uncomfortable movie going; don’t wheeze; it’s Stephen Lang, goddamit; Rampage is all the rage; Tyrannosaurus Rex machina; the Fast and Furious is bad for hair; reader’s letter; let’s call Ian out; time for filler: Top 5 songs that start great, but then go downhill in some way as requested by Dylan McConnell; art can be uncomfortable; Ian doesn’t enjoy repetition; and, finally, Andy Kaufman feelings.

This week’s Top 5 songs that start off great, but go downhill as chosen by Dave:
1) “It’s All Too Beautiful” by The Beta Band from their 1999 album The Beta Band
2) “Tonight’s Gonna Be” by Black-Eyed Peas from the 2009 album The E.N.D.
3) “Venus and Mars” by Wings from the 1975 album Venus and Mars
4) “All of Your Toys” by The Monkees from the 1991 box set Listen to the Band
5) “The Child with the Star on His Head” by Sufjan Stevens from the 2012 box set Silver & Gold: Songs for Christmas, Vols. 6–10
and the usual bonus track (this time chosen by Ian):
6) “Live and Let Die” by Wings from the 1972 soundtrack to Live and Let Die

Department of Corections:
Timecop was not produced by Mike Nesmith. He was the producer of Timerider (as well as Repo Man)
Black-Eyed Peas are not, no matter what Dave thinks, a Canadian band (although they did play at intermission during a Grey Cup game.)
