This week we're keeping it high and tight—dream collabs, medical conditions, time machines, CGI, inerracial love, Sarah Palin and a dude Kamau kinda wants to sleep with. Pow!

We <3 you.

Our first official FNGTAC of 2012 was actually recorded at the VERY end of 2011, so since we're trapped in a podcast time-vortex anyway, we're taking a little time to look back at our favorite films of the year. Vernon and Kamau go from big budget CGI-fests to small indy pics you might have missed (without spoilers, so don't worry if they get to something you haven't seen yet) so there's sure to be something for everyone—even Alex.

As usual, you can always connect with Kamau at and on Twitter @WKamauBell

You can also say "hi" to Vernon at and on Twitter @Vurnt22

Alex still hates Facebook and recently closed his Twitter as well, but feel free to like, send a message through Kamau or Vernon or whatever and they can text him.
