Later this week I'll be recording the 200th episode of the lovehate podcast and I want your help.
I want you to tell me what I should talk about.
I'm opening up the floor to all topics, including pop culture, politics, media, technology, or whatever else you can think of.
There is a catch however. You only get one topic, so make it good.
I have no illusions that this is going to generate an ungodly ream of suggestions, but rest assured, whether it's 2, 20, or 200, I will talk about all of them in this podcast. It could be a VERY long affair.
So put your thinking caps on and decide what you would like to hear a lovehate spin on.
Love it or hate it.

Upon the passing of John Hughes, who most of us remember as a director, it behooves us to think back to his writing output that extended up until 2008. Hughes only directed eight films, including many 80's teen classics, and even though many of his scripts could be deemed silly, populist, or juvenile, there was an undeniable ability to tell a story and reach niche audiences.
Probably most of you have seen this film. Probably most of you remember this shot. Probably most of you know why it's so special. If you're a lover or student of film, it's worth watching this three minute uncut tracking shot every once in a while to remind you that film isn't all about remaking old classics... that is until they remake Goodfellas with Will Ferrell, Luke Wilson and Martin Lawrence. As you watch this, think of the planning involved and realize that sometimes genius can be expressed over a nasally vocal track.
