Live from Big Nice, Griffin, David and Producer Ben watched 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger. But is Hugo Weaving intentionally playing Red Skull like Werner Herzog? Is Griffin allergic to Christmas trees? Would Ben excel as a Peaky Blinder? Together they examine the the legacy of Captain America, the effectiveness of just a lil touch of the Tucc and, of course, more buried jeans related conversation.[1]

Milestones and Ephemera

  • The move starts at approximately 8:26!
  • Buried jeans update: fermentation periods of 6, 9, and 12 months. He put some natural dyes in the pockets as an experiment.
  • Griffin and David agree: first third is perfect, second third is solid, third is perfunctory.
  • Shockingly, Ben doesn't like a wet burrito.
  • Cap definitely doesn’t fuck.
