Who knew paper mache could lead to so many complicated feelings.  It's Less Than Perfect Daughter, another "television event" from the ABC Network

Jul 7, 2017

Have we found it? An after school special who's message is actually relevant?  Maybe. We had to wade through anchovies and dixieland jazz to find it though.  Its "What If I'm Gay"

Jun 30, 2017

Episode 50 is a big deal. So is having a new show on the Ear Trumpet Audio network.  So, to celebrate both, we invited our newest podcast hosts, Jake and Carrie from Love YA Like Crazy to do an episode exchange.  I don't think they knew quite what they were getting themselves into when they said yes, but here we are and they've suffered through The Shunning, starring Michael Landon Jr.

Michelle and Stephanie will be recording an episode of Love YA Like Crazy in the coming weeks so follow Ear Trumpet Audio on Facebook and Twitter!

Also, you should totally subscribe to Love YA Like Crazy, which you can do at www.loveyalikecrazy.com

In this episode, Michelle and Stephanie talk about all the bad things that could happen to you while riding a carousel and share their love of Golden Girls.  Its Have You Ever Been Ashamed Of Your Parents starring Marion Ross and Jennifer Jason Leigh

Jun 9, 2017

Scott Baio shovels Raisin Bran into his mouth.  Also Michelle and Steph try to list as many slang terms for marijuana as possible.  It's Stoned!

Jun 2, 2017

This movie's punk lead makes Avril Lavine look like Johnny Rotten.  Thats right.  We watched The Day My Kid Went Punk starring Lenny Kravitz' mom, The Boy Who Could Fly, Dr Bricker from Love Boat and the Governor from Benson.  I couldn't make this up if I tried.

May 26, 2017

Welcome back to Lifemark : Summer Nights. We're back with another ABC after school special that is all about dead kids and onion rings.  Its A Family Again.  We have the stars of LA Law and Rikki Lake taking us through a journey about grief and hand cranked ice cream.

May 20, 2017

Summertime, and the livin' is easy.  We all remember the joy of summer vacation but its important we don't get too complacent, falling into the peer pressure of being a cool teen.  

Have no fear.  All summer long, Lifemark will be here to give you the cautionary tales your youthful heart craves with Lifemark : Things We Learned This Summer.  That's right.  We are going pro-Lifetime and watching a dozen ABC after school specials to keep you on the straight and narrow this summer.  We kick off our summer series with Schoolboy Father, starring Rob Lowe and Dana Plato.  Also, ths movie is called Schoolboy Father which should clue you in to how amazing this will be.

 

We also talk about our patreon campaign where you can tell us what movie you want us to watch and even be a guest on our show.  Visit www.patreon.com/eartrumpt for all the details.

Next week will be our one year pod-a-versary so in honor of that and Mother's day and the fact that Michelle and I have been busy saving the world, we are re-releasing our first episode - Mother May I Sleep With Danger

May 7, 2017

After talking about it for months, we finally watch the D&D cautionary tale Mazes and Monsters starring Tom Hanks.  Stephanie talks about how afraid she was of D&D when she was 9 and Michelle talks about what it means to roll a "diabetes check".  It was more fun than killing orcs.  

May 1, 2017

Sometimes we struggle on deciding what movie to watch.  And the sometimes we luck upon the most amazing made for TV gem.  And that's exactly what happened this week when we found Camp Cucamonga.  Have you ever wondered what would happen of George Jefferson and Urkel were in the same movie?  Wonder no longer as we tie a sweet little bow on the final episode of Candace Cameron Bur-April.

Apr 22, 2017

We continue our journey through Candace Cameron Bur-April with her first role after Full House : Sharon's Secret.  Her secret is that the ending of this movie makes no sense at all.

Apr 15, 2017

Candace Cameron Bur-April continues with what Michelle and Stephanie THOUGHT was a Hallmark movie but ended up being something much worse.  Welcome to the first movie that made Steph actually panic about : Finding Normal

Apr 7, 2017

Welcome to the first film of Candace Cameron Bur-April.  We start things off with the 1996 classic No One Would Tell, starring Candace Cameron and Fred Savage.  Much Teens.  So Bertinelli.  

Mar 31, 2017

We wrap up Women's History Month with a real downer.  Sorry about that, guys.  Oddly, it pings on the Bertinelli scale so high so....bonus?  It's Homeless To Harvard starring Kelly Lynch and Thora Birch.  Get it!

Mar 24, 2017

We want to finish Women's History Month strong so this week and next week, we'll be watching some films that celebrate Badass Ladies In History.  This week, we watch The Courageous Heart of Irena Sendler.  We also find out what Stephanie's dog thinks of Nazis.  Spoiler Alert.  She's not a fan.

Mar 17, 2017

Happy St Patrick's Day, everyone! You know we love a theme so we watched Chasing Leprechauns from the Hallmark network.  Also, this movie might have made Stephanie cry but she'll totally deny it if you ask her about it tomorrow.

Mar 10, 2017

I think watching Hallmark Hall Of Fame movies is like childbirth.  Eventually, enough time has passed that you forget how painful it is so you stupidly do the whole thing over again.

This week, we watched Pictures of Hollis Woods, which proves that even acting powerhouses like Sissy Spacek and Viola Davis survive as terrible movie

Feb 24, 2017

It's finally aired! We've been waiting for Britney Ever After to be broadcast for almost a year now and this sweet day is finally here! So, what did we think of it?  Just HOW frosted were fake JT's tips?  And what's the deal with all that chicken? We cover it all in this week's episode of Lifemark.

Feb 17, 2017

Hope you all had a great Valentines day.  We know ONE guy who didn't and we learn all about it in this week's movie, The Perfect Girlfriend.  Spoiler alert.  She's not perfect. But there is a cute dog in it so we give this movie a big thumbs up.

Feb 10, 2017

Happy Valentine's Day, yall!  We got you a dead dad, some amphibians and a Brit with amnesia.  Don't say we never did anything romantic for our listeners.

We watched Smooch starring Kelly Martin and Kiernan Shipka, where we learn about dissection and fire escapes and love.  But mostly dissection .

 

Feb 3, 2017

To kick off the most romantic month, we watched The Perfect Boyfriend from Lifetime.  Spoiler alert, this movie has 100% less romance than you'd expect and like 300% more murder.  Also, we discuss wifi troubleshooting 101.

Jan 27, 2017

What do Stephen King, Miley Cyrus, Billy Joel and the Marines have in common? This movie.  It's Popfan from Lifetime -- a movie that almost used Comic Sans in its opening credits.  We learn about lighthouses and paint and dead parents.  And that's just in the first 15 minutes.

Jan 20, 2017

It's inauguration day so we chose the 1978 made for TV movie The President's Mistress, starring Beau Bridges and a bunch of Russians.  Presidents and Russians? What ever could go wrong?!

Jan 6, 2017

Happy New Year, Lifemarkers! This week's episode is brought to you by the phrases "Glue Horse" and"Chunky Kool-Aid".  It's a Hallmark movie SO BAD, even Michelle didn't like it.  It's A Kiss By Midnight, starring Faith Ford, Dyan Cannon and Hal Linden
