- Tonight's Beverage: Zywiec (pronouced "zjee-vee-ess") beer
- Mopping up the rest of the Hillary Swank item from last week; people wanting Justin Bieber deported; Oscar nominations and the disqualification of a Best Song nominee and how there's so much corruption in the process, why make a stand on this?
- Dirk talks about American Hustle. (DirkFlix review pending)

- The Green Day American Idiot musical is at the Detroit Opera House and some discussion of the Satori Circus 25th Anniversary show last week.
- The titular beer:
- Ben Affleck's inability to watch Republican actors; how Hollywood doesn't know any Republicans, so they don't depict them; and how it's bad for business.
- The ridiculous excuse for Atlanta's inability to cope with 2 inches of snow.
- Variety's disappointing review of The Monuments Men.
