It's Weekend Justice: the Internet's #1 audio trainwreck...finally back after many trials and tribulations. And not enough beer.
Pixar seemed to get its groove back with Inside Out, a look into the mind of an eleven year old girl. Her anthropomorphic emotional states that formed the committee running her brain are: yellow Joy, blue Sadness, red Anger, green Disgust, and purple Fear. Obviously for a family movie, you need to simplify the complex emotions everybody has. But people are made up of many more than the simple primary emotions.
A lot of pop culture news happens. Some of it you don't need to know. Some of it you only need the briefest bit of it. And pretty much all of it is not urgent. Welcome to an endeavor to save you time and sanity. Enjoy.
It's Episode #185 for Ant-Man, in which our protagonist talks about the Marvel streak, frets about their editorial past and also reflects on how the biggest fights can look tiny and inconsequential from a different height. Wow, that's deep, man.

I first learned of this when I was listening to Graham Norton's episode of Desert Island Discs. A TV special from 2001 featured Norton going to Dollywood at the invite of the grand lady herself. One of the things that resulted was the following, which, in a fit of madness and hilarity, Norton picked as one of his discs to take to the desert island with him.
Big Finish Productions has, since 1999, had the license from the BBC to make Doctor Who audio plays. Big Finish has turned this into a gold mine. They have created new stories for the five remaining classic Doctor Who actors (Tom Baker, Peter Davidson, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, and Paul McGann) and for many of the remaining companions as well. New companions for the Doctor have been created, old characters have been given new spinoff series, and the Whoniverse has been explored and expanded unbound by visual effects. The BBC seems to be quite pleased by Big Finish. Not only were the Eight Doctor's Big Finish companions named-checked in "The Night of the Doctor," their license has been extended til 2020.
However, one area has been verboten. The BBC has made any reference to the new Doctor Who series off limits. So no Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, or Twelve Doctors or any of the new companions, monsters, or events can be used in any Big Finish production.
