Ep. 473: Where Papa's got a brand new plaid Video
Today's episode of The 404 Podcast deals with a lot of movies, which makes sense after last night's utterly forgettable Academy Awards, or so Wilson claims, because he forgot to watch. The awards committee certainly isn't lacking a sense of irony after selecting Sandra Bullock for the Best Female Performance in "The Blind Side." The actress also won the Razzie for Worst Female Actor in "All About Steve."
Laura Henderson (Dench) buys an old London theater and opens it up as the Windmill, a performance hall which goes down in history for, among other things, its all-nude revues.

Microsoft cancels its family licensing program and Molly decides the company needs a lesson in economics. Stop focusing on dimes, Microsoft! We also plea for some common sense in the case of the woman jailed for recording some of the new Twilight movie at a birthday party.
We all watched NASA's final space shuttle launch this morning before heading into the studio, and by "we" I mean Wilson and me, because as usual, Jeff couldn't care less. Nevertheless, we're still excited about Atlantis and spend part of the first half of the show watching videos and talking about the official Atlantis fanfare written by Emmy-nominated composer Bear McCreary and produced by actor Seth Green!
It's our last show before the three-day weekend, so we're wrapping up with a review of the movie box office, and some new services that'll help with the cost of tickets. We're also exploring the idea of 4D movie theaters, and quizzing Wilson on another episode of Tang that Tune.
A pre-operative male-to-female transsexual takes an unexpected journey when she learns that she fathered a son, now a teenage runaway hustling on the streets of New York.

Wilson might be the only host on The 404 who watched the entire big game on Sunday, so we don't spend too much time talking about the actual game and instead stick to the commercials. Ads this year included Google's first Super Bowl ad. Also, HomeAway revitalized the Griswold family from National Lampoon's "Vacation,",\ and Motorola aired a commercial with Megan Fox selling something...we just don't remember what it is.
Now available on DVD, this is the story behind the infamous Enron scandal.
