It's annual Clean Out the Inbox Day for Matt. (Sometimes he only celebrates every 2 or 3 years.)
You know who else's inbox is at zero?
I just figured I should try to say something right now, because most of the episode will feature Ben talking and me saying, 'Hmm.'
Conspiracy theories about Stanley Kubrick's death
He died 4 days after screening the final cut off Eyes Wide Shut.
Kubrick's attention to detail and genius make these more plausible.
Another example: the middle word of The Divine Comedy is "love".
Ben's evidence against Stanley Kubrick being in the Illuminati: he didn't like to travel, so he wouldn't have wanted to go to the Satanic rituals.
Kubrick wanted a bad performance from Shelley Duvall in The Shining to help the audience sympathize with Jack.
