The 404 651: Where the two youts are giving me agida (podcast)

Justin confesses a horrible personal secret on today's episode, but we also discuss the Google movie, ChatRoulette marketing for "The Last Exorcism," and a King Bowser turtle skeleton!

I've never been afraid to write a blog post for The 404 Podcast before, but I'm expecting a world of pain after this morning's broadcast. Full disclosure: most of the first half is Jeff and Wilson getting mad at me for a long list of classic movies that I stubbornly refuse to watch. After the ammo runs out, we also talk about the new Google movie just announced, a clever viral marketing campaign for "The Last Exorcism" exploiting pervs on Chatroulette, a turtle skeleton in King Bowser's likeness discovered 3,000 years later, and a series of voice mails from a guy calling himself "Dominic the Dummy."

Brace yourself for a whole lot of "WAIT, YOU HAVEN'T SEEN _______________?!?!" Apparently, there's no excuse for missing out on films like "My Cousin Vinny," "The Godfather" series, Indiana Jones, and a bunch of other classic flicks that film majors spend $100,000 to watch. Do you hear that? It's the sound of my credibility on the show getting flushed down the toilet...does it count for anything that I can recite every Pauly Shore movie by heart?

Moving on, just after the release of the Facebook movie, Google announced a big picture of its own . A production company recently acquired the rights to adapt "Googled" by Ken Auletta, a revealing book based on the rise of the popular search engine.

It'll tell the story of co-founders Sergey Brin and Larry Page creating a company based on the famous edict, "don't be evil." Little is known about which actors are involved or who will direct, but CNET already has a handpicked cast list for the film . Check it out!

Just before we hit the break, we check out a clever video marketing campaign for the movie "The Last Exorcism" that preys on the not-so-innocent perverts scouring Chatroulette for nude exhibitionists. Join us as we watch a bunch of dudes tricked into watching a hottie disrobe, only to quickly transform into a demon and scare the crap out of the poor perverts.

If you want to get in touch with us with a comment about the show or just to shame me into watching "Raging Bull," you can leave a voice mail on our machine at 1-866-404-CNET (2638) or e-mail the404(at)cnet(dot)com. We're also available on Twitter as @the404, but Wilson, Jeff, and I all have our own individual accounts as well. See you online!
