I was thinking of making a music podcast but decided to make a YouTube top five playlist.  The last Video will only play in YouTube.  Sorry and I hope you enjoy.

Well we might be a week late, but we’re kicking off 2012 with a bit of a different version of Some Shit We Like. The new year (as is usually the case) is slow out of the gate with very little, shall we say, fresh shit for us to like and discuss amongst ourselves. However, never being at a loss for words, we improvised and presented what we were most looking forward to in the year to come of video games and film. Also, good friend of the show, Ryan O’Leary, joined us and shared his latest projects, Snack Shack and Jesus Christ! 2!!, much to our delight. Finally, for good measure, there is always our usual banter and randomness, but you’ll just have to listen for more on that.

Otherwise, here’s a glimpse of what else awaits in our first show of the year:

FLIX WE PIX:
Rick – Buck
Mike – Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
Bryce – United States of Tara

VIDEO GAMES:
News – Starhawk’s potentially new and surprising DLC strategy
News – Kaz Hirai soon becoming president of Sony
NewsGran Turismo 5 XL releases January 17th with $20 DLC voucher
News – UFC on Xbox Live FAIL, promises future free access…again (only to those who registered for free access of UFC 141)

IMDb Description: A subversive, scathing look at a self-loathing management consultant from a top-tier firm. Marty, a highly successful, cutthroat consultant is never above using any means (or anyone) necessary to get his clients the information they want.

Showtime has put the first episode of House of Lies on YouTube.  It stars Don Cheadle, Kristen Bell, Ben Schwartz, and Josh Lawson.  One reason why I will be watching this is Kristen Bell, but honestly I’m a fan of Don Cheadle as well.

IMDb Description: Trapped inside her family’s lakeside retreat, a young woman descends into madness.

I was very impressed with Elizabeth Olsen in Martha Marcy May Marlene last year.  Her performance was awesome.  Another movie she did that caused a lot of buzz at Sundance was Silent House,  a remake of Gustavo Hernandez’s La Casa Muda.  Both movies clam to be done in one continuous shot and that is why everyone finds this movie intriguing.  The film comes out on  March 9th, 2012.
