Gymkommentary 2 is coming soon!

Yes, Moreno and I have booked time in the recording studio this Saturday. (i.e. I'm borrowing podcast equipment and we're moving my TV into the living room) Soon now, very soon, you will be blessed with our presents in your ear bud headphones. Be careful with those things, by the way, they can cause deafness when played at extreme volumes.

But what movie will we be gymkommentaring? Here's your only clue:

Before Kurt Thomas started a state-of-the-art gymnastics training facility located inside the Dr. Pepper StarCenter, he did his country a great service. He saved the country from the terror of the Soviet Union by defeating a horde of bearded men and ninjas, and he made a movie about it.

And after Matt Singer and Chris Moreno watched it about 30 times each, they made a commentary track for it.

The Tale of the Tape
Film: Gymkata (1984)
Director: Robert Clouse
Runtime: 90 minutes
Genre: Action
Stars: Kurt Thomas, Tetchie Agbayani, Richard Norton
Rated: R for Mild Violence, Some Sexuality, and Disturbing Images of a Gymnast's Crotch
IMDb, The Kurt Thomas Invitational

To get this GYMKATA GYMKOMMENTARY FILE in your iTunes, open iTunes then go "Advanced" to "Subscribe to Podcast" and then enter this link:

This first-ever (but probably not last-ever) GYMKOMMENTARY! finds Matt and Chris braving the Parmistanian wilderness, getting lost somewhere in Eastern Europe, and reading excerpts from the greatest book in history written by a gymnast about himself.

The Game! IS! ON!


Whatever it is, it's coming at you like an murderous chef.
