GOT AN OPINION? (You better if you’re coming on our show!)

Not a big fan at all of what DC is doing with their movies when it comes to the directors cut Blu-Ray releases. Basically if the movie was bad at the box office, they use the excuse of “wait until you see the directors cut. So many things we had to cut out”. Feels like a cop out to me for a bad movie and it feels like we are getting to the age of DLC for movies.

ABOUT OUR GUEST(s):

Dara Lyons

WHAT DO YOU DO?

In the second grade, Dara (or “Daralyse Lyons” as her angry teacher called her) was sent to the principal’s office for misbehaving. When she arrived, instead of going in to see the principal and accept her punishment, Dara lied about having a stomachache and needing to see the nurse. She’s been telling stories and putting on performances ever since.

Dara is a summa cum laude graduate of New York University with a Bachelors in Arts and Science. A true over-achiever, she double-majored in English Literature and Religious Studies and minored in History.

She has written numerous articles and short stories, sixteen full-length novels, a nonfiction book about yoga, and two children’s books. Her work has been read by over half a million readers.

A few biographical notes:

1. I’ve been skydiving and parasailing and I love rollercoasters (but I’m afraid of heights)
2. I saw Star Wars for the first time last year at 32.
3. I’m a yoga teacher

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS?
I recently finished writing a memoir that I’m shopping around. (Lots of juicy stuff – the premise for the book is Two of Me about being biracial, bisexual, bulimic and bipolar and finding an integrated sense of self while being torn between extremes).

I’m editing a novel – Yoga Cocaine – which I wrote a screenplay for, and, when that’s done, I’ll be looking for a publisher.

I’m promoting my other books.

ABOUT OUR GUEST:

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Brief bio and how you like to be referred to on air. Think Twitter Bio)

I’m an improviser, actor, and comedian living in LA. Sometimes people pay me to write stuff. I’m also a science nerd!

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS?
I’m in the middle of pitching a few TV shows, which sounds like a much bigger, cooler deal than it actually is. I’m also recording a podcast called Braids for Howl, which is Earwolf’s premium content label. Braids is a trippy science show, meant to feel like the stoned 3am conversation everybody has freshman year of college about how big the universe is. I think it works? Who knows!

GOT AN OPINION?
I’m kind of over Marvel TV shows, but Legion is a notable exception. Also, the new Mass Effect game is deeply, deeply flawed, but very, very fun. I don’t think either of those are hot button? But they’re what’s on my mind these days.

FOLLOW OUR GUEST:
@ActuallyBerg on twitter. There’s a fake me on Facebook at facebook.com/berg420, but that’s a fake profile using my face and name run by about two dozen devoted comedians.

NEXT WEEK: We welcome fellow TalkRadio.nyc host Kai Cole and prolific author Dara Lyons on the show to dish on the latest Pop Culture goodness!

So you know when you watch a movie trailer and it’s like “Awesome! Spidey and Iron Man are holding a boat together that must be the climactic action sequence,” or “Wow! Batman cracked a joke! This movie must be super funny!”

But then you watch the movie and you’re like wait a minute…that trailer lied to me (I’m looking at you Suicide Squad)!

On this week’s episode of Secrets of the Sire we play ‘Truth or Trash’ with the Justice League and Spider-Man: Homecoming trailers. Hassan and host Mike Dolce break down the key moments of each trailer and predict what scenes will actually ring true when the movie hits the big screen.

PLUS: Ghost in the Shell hits theaters this weekend – does anyone care?
