Episode 26: 2015 Year-End Spectacular

We made it! An entire year of Forgotten Failures is in the books, and why not mark this momentous turning of the calendar with some reminiscences, or by handing out awards, or by sort of doing both in this one-of-a-kind special featuring all your favorites: Mick Jagger, Australian rockabilly, descents into madness, etc. You better listen, because this involved way too much editing.

Minisode: Listener feedback

Thanks for your Twitter replies, Facebook comments, and in theory emails. This week we responded to some of them – addressing issues such as: What is in a Gnomeburger? Will Mick Jagger’s tongue be used to calibrate Google Glass? Was that Ralph Bakshi Spiderman episode just a hallucination we had?

Minisode: Twisted Mini-Obsession

We see no need to watch the Jeff Goldbum / Anemone vehicle Twisted Obsession, but we did watch a 15-minute trailer, containing three fully clothed sex scenes and an instance of Chekhov’s Moped Scarf. Does Jenny end up decapitated, or floating in an aquarium like most teen runaways? Find out in this thrilling, erotic minisode.

Episode 5: Running Out of Luck (1986)

Your Forgotten Failures casters were invited behind the door of the great Mick Jagger’s mind (if VHS tapes can be considered an invitation (they can)) and things won’t never be the same.

Mick Jagger AKA Mickey Jaggiero AKA Brazilian Prostitute #5 does not have time or luck on his side, as told with minimal dialog and maximum musical montages. If you’ve ever wondered if it’s safe to eat chicken found in a cemetery, how to poison your nipples, or who really pioneered the red leather jacket, then you, dear listener, have just lucked out. Join Mike D., Darrill, Mike R., and Lindsay in their exasperated attempts to make sense of Mick Jagger’s journey through stardom, banana plantation/sex slavedom, prostitutedom, jail house rockdom, casino heistingdom, and “sex” having.
