Lao Tzu said: "The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness." Matt, Bob and returning guest, Baltimore comedian Bryan Preston, are most certainly being introduced to higher dimensions of consciousness when they watch AIR BUD: SPIKES BACK, a movie that involves the JEWEL OF ETERNITY. What is that? Who cares, nothing matters. All the answers can be found on the WIKIPEDIA page for the movie, which contains the following plot synopsis:
In Disney's fifth installment to the franchise, Air Bud finds that he also has the uncanny ability to play volleyball. Throughout this experience he and a talking parrot stop some crooks and make some new friends who pledge allegiance to the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq and promptly leave for Syria. Air Bud is radicalized, but when he starts starving in the Syrian desert, he is forced to eat his parrot friend. Air Bud, after wandering around for hours, is killed in a drone strike taken out by the US Army.
