The SoBros Mailbag: 89th Edition – TV Shows as Musicals, Twitter Jail
Let’s face it – every day we are routinely bombarded with questions. When you’re an emerging media company in Nashville, people just want to know what your opinions are on everything. It’s only natural. And, since our duty is to serve the people, well, we have no choice but to be present. That’s the SoBro Way. Also, aren’t mailbags just a barrel of laughs anyway? Welcome to the newest weekly recurring feature up in this bitch: The SoBros Mailbag. As always, use #SoBrosMailbag to hit us up on Twitter.
How many movies do you think @SirBrandonV has seen?— Noho Hank (@SoBroCadbury) January 9, 2020
He sees what? A couple hundred every year in theaters? No telling how many on home release. I’d say he’s probably hovering around 300 movies a year, and has been doing that for the last five years….I don’t know exactly when he started getting into movies, but even back in high school he was going once or twice a week.
I’m going to guess he saw 100-150 movies a year from 2002-2012, and then around 300 movies a year from 2013-19. An exact guess would be 3,540.
With The Nanny becoming a Broadway musical what other tv shows would you like to see as a musical?— Steven McCash (@MC_Cash75) January 9, 2020
Me: Scrubs, Saved By The Bell and B.J. and the Bear
This is an excellent question, and I’m with you on Saved By the Bell. That one would probably top my list as well. But, for the sake of giving you a different answer, I’m going to go with Dinosaurs.
You also got a couple of answers on the Twitter gimmick:

Where on the food pyramid would baby powder fall?— sobrostan (@sobrostan) January 9, 2020
I mean, you would have to put it in with the breads and grains, right? Where else would it fit in? 3-5 servings a day, bitches.
Did they treat you well in Twitter jail?— The Ultimate Worrier (@WorrierMN) January 9, 2020
I was so pissed. I mean, what kind of world are we living in that ‘redneck’ is deemed ‘offensive?’ I can understand that you can’t assume tone in text, but who would report that as hate speech? It’s crazy. But, all in all, I am pleased to announce that I have survived.
How many books are you aiming to finish this year and are there any you’re looking forward to reading?— babyface brett (@thebrettclark) January 9, 2020
My official goal for 2020 is 12. I know that doesn’t sound like a lot to the book-reading machine that just read 100 in a year, but that’s a big step up for me, after averaging 5-7 books a year for the last decade. I’m trying to do a little more “for me” in 2020 and manage the stress of a day job and sinking a ton of my income into a startup media company.
I discovered Tim Dorsey in 2019 by picking up a copy of Nuclear Jellyfish from the Books A Million bargain table. I loved it so much that I picked up some of his other stuff. I’m saving Florida Roadkill for the summer time because I’m super weird about only doing/experiencing certain things in certain seasons (that’s a separate can of worms).
I just started a book on Travis Kalanick (Uber’s founder), and it’s fascinating, but also giving me ‘Nam flashbacks (I used to work for Lyft, and that whole San Francisco tech start-up vibe is like a different world (I think I’ve been gone from Lyft long enough to be open about this)).
So, those two immediately come to mind. Happy reading!
When I put diaper cream on my sons butthole he smiles at me. Should I be concerned?— sobrostan (@sobrostan) January 10, 2020
I don’t really feel comfortable answering this question, but I think the short answer is “no.” To be fair, you might smile if you put diaper cream on your own butthole. Have you tried that yet, Stan?
Keep the questions coming – catch y’all next week!
