#14490610 CAGcast #734: Ping Pong is My Passion

Cheapy’s eccentric millionaire lifestyle is enviable. I wish I could spend my weekdays volunteering at a local ping pong club, or something equivalent.

I watched The Outfit after Cheapy recommended it. It was very good. The receptionist is Lea Thompson’s daughter.

Before my Peacock sub expired I looked through all their movies and it’s almost all crap on there. But I did find a 2016 movie called Una that has very good acting and a 76% score on RT. Like The Outfit, the less you know about it the better, but don’t watch it with the kids.

A lot of people are saying that NFL games are being fixed by the mob, but you won’t hear about it in the lamestream media. I don’t know if this guy Wombat is right or wrong, but he’s just asking questions, and that’s the kind of podcast host Spotify really needs on its network.

Add NFL football to the list of topics that Wombat is an 'expert' on but knows nothing about

It was painful to listen to, like a conspiracy theory from a Joe Rogan podcast. Maybe it was a bit?

But Ship has experienced a lifetime of suffering as a Bengals fan. You don’t need to piss on his parade, even as joke, now that they are finally winning playoff games.

When I went and saw F9 on July 4th, I used the Fandango app to see how many seats had been sold in the theater. That way I was able to know I could have the entire first four rows all to myself. Since there are 30 minutes of trailers, I was able to wait until the movie’s official start time to actually buy the ticket.

I recently used my free week of Paramount+ to watch A Quiet Place 2, and the only other things I watched were the Console Wars documentary and Bill and Ted 3. It was interesting to see how bitter those Sega and Nintendo execs were 30 years later.

Whether Shipwreck would like the handful of shows I mentioned wasn’t the point. The point was, they are objectively not cheap filler. The production values are as high as almost anything on TV. Just this month I have watched all of Halt and Catch Fire, and Manhunt Deadly Games on Netflix. Again, these are not cheap filler shows. Nor was Mad Men when I watched that on NetFlix last year.

NetFlix shows like The Crown, Narcos, Ozark, Peaky Blinders and Queen’s Gambit are just as high quality as anything on Disney Plus.

Merchandise on the wall is not the same thing as a picture you see a hundred times a day on your phone. Having Trump propaganda in the place normal people have photos of their family or pets is indicative of a warped attachment to a political figure. Social media including Facebook has played a huge role in creating the QAnon cult which encouraged its followers to worship Trump, and to attempt to violently overthrow the government earlier this month. They also believe Obama’s friend and Vice President, Joe Biden, is a pedophile. There is no cult pushing people to worship Obama, or to try and kill elected officials on his behalf.

Lupin is very good, but the main character makes some dumb decisions that would not be out of place on The Mandalorian.

4K wasn’t really the problem on the PS4 Pro and X1X. Quite a few games ran at native 4K, like Wipeout HD and Forza Horizon 4. And many more used smart rendering techniques to approximate 4K to great effect, like Horizon Zero Dawn.

The problem was the weak Jaguar CPUs which meant that even when games (particularly open world games) dropped down the resolution, they still couldn’t get near 60 fps.

Haha not sure how you don't always catch their political remarks. Usually they are in every episode but that's fine because it's their podcast. Also, cheapy and wombat are leftists. If you don't agree with them on everything political they don't want you to listen to their show. Sorry, but they dislike you as a person and have no respect for you. That's the modern day left in a nutshell.

Is there anything worse than the bitter whining of snowflake Republicans. Go find a safe space to cry in about the mean old “leftists”.

So would Quuen’s Gambit be awkward to watch with an elderly person? I was thinking it would be a good option but then the finger-in-the-butt talk is making me reconsider
Basically I’m looking for a non-finger-in-the-butt show

There’s nothing graphic like Cheapy and Wombat were hoping for, but there are sex scenes that you might not enjoy watching with a geezer.

“It’s no more confusing than what Sony’s doing”.

The only difference between the two PS5 consoles is that one has a disc drive and one does not.

As well as not having a disc drive, the Series S has a much worse GPU than the Series X, less RAM and a smaller SSD. Just today MS revealed the Series S won’t be able to enhance backwards compatibile games as well as the Xbox One X does now.

I don’t see new consoles launching this year. Neither Sony or MS are going to want to promote new consoles and create hype with camp outs at stores in the middle of a pandemic. With no system-seller games this year, I see both consoles pushed to Fall 2021.

Wombat should create a rating system for all these shows and movies he watches. His taste in trashy shows is impeccable. The Old Guard was horrible. I had to rewind the last 45 minutes several times because I kept falling a sleep.

Any thoughts on Shipwreck starting a vlog about living off the grid in his cabin?

They’ll be out in November, 2020.
