Podcasting Day: Unintentional Dark Comedies with Jason Pargin 🌭

Jason Pargin’s new book is available now! It’s called Zoey is Too Drunk for this Dystopia and you can buy it! Here! But even more urgently, he’s on this week’s Dogg Zzone 9000 to talk about absolutely silly shit. Not ordinary silly shit, though; unintended silly shit. We each brought very serious movies to discuss, all of them made by talented filmmakers, and then present our cases for how they were accidentally comedies.

Listen here or wherever you get podcasts.


To follow along at home, you’ll need to cut out and assemble your Poxco Whoopsie Zany Funglasses included with every Dogg Zzone 9000 Podcast Footnotes:

To see Seanbaby’s example, put them on now.

Seanbaby chose Dragged Across Concrete, a fascinatingly miserable movie he’s already written about in great detail. The filmmaker, racist, took an 11 minute break from the gritty crime drama to invent his own mommy emotional disorder so we’d be extra upset when he explodes a bank teller’s fingers and head and then cuts to a reaction shot of a man in whiteface.

Take off your glasses, wait don’t, now.

Jason’s pick was We Need to Talk About Kevin, a movie about a real jerk made by someone who has no idea how bows and arrows work. That’s not an editorial, that’s from the poster:

Brockway chose a classic of the genre– the highest achievement unintentional hilarious cinema may ever achieve. It was, of course, the dude who got slapped into a thousand cartwheels by one of the Titanic’s propellers:

Supporters of our Patreon, and hopefully that’s you since it’s the only way we make money, can tune into the bonus podcast where Brockway and Jason square off in a Seanbaby’s Book Game. We read from 1003 Ways to Stay Young, a book too stupid for anyone to predict, but these men are veterans. They’ve become tidbit wizards. They not only found the exact moment the author lost her mind, they threw out the rules and made up their own impossible win conditions. And then they achieved them tog– you know what? I’ve said too much. Buy Jason’s book!

Footnotes footnote: We have so much great stuff coming in from our all-star cast of writers that starting next week, we’re running regular articles on Wednesdays. The podcast schedule won’t change, we are just retiring this method of reminding you, and giving you even more comedy instead. In some parts of ancient Constantinople, it is said people used to show their gratitude for surprise comedy by upping their fucking Patreon pledge.

I will increase my donation due to my comically overdone love of the last place on the internet that can do funny. “When I was a boy, before all content was AI complaining about Congres PM, before Taylor Swift took off her skin mask, before bleak and hopeless present where attractive teens are divided into factions based on PSAT scores and forced to fight to please her cadre of demons, there was funny writing on the internet.” “CONTENTBOT GIVE THIS ANNOYING OLD BASTARD TWO THOUSAND SNIDE WORDS ABOUT THE MINORITY WHIP TO SHOOT HIM UP!”

I’m not sure what that last sentence means after the AI autocorrect got done with it, but I think I need to go unplug a few things.

I will argue baby-addict bank lady being executed was a good thing. If she was allowed to survive, she was a week away from sealing that baby in an acrylic cube to preserve it.

It really is to drug addiction what Crash was to racism. An earnest (?) attempt by someone wholly unfamiliar with the issue at hand to make a hard-hitting drama about it. Either way great movies to get stoned and make fun of.

I’m sorry if this has been answered elsewhere before, I don’t read the comments much: where exactly do I access the bonus episodes for Patreon subscribers? I can’t find them anywhere. On that note, where would the Hot Dogg overlords, if you’re reading this, suggest we get the Dogg Zone 9000? Google Podcasts was my preferred app but it’s going away

Shit, I found it as soon as I posted this. But still, where does everyone else listen to this? What app will get me Diebel Data fastest and best?

As a fellow Pat-sie (a term I just coined) please don’t hide your sacred knowledge. I still don’t know how to listen to the bonus podcasts and I refuse to put in any effort to try.

My fiance and I feel this way about Hereditary. We ruined some people in the theaters experience because we could not stop exploding with laughter. Idk if it is because we couldn’t take the inciting incident seriously and it broke us, but every gruesome thing in that movie is hilarious.
