Sunday Cinema – “Anthrax”

All this month on “Sunday Cinema” in celebration of Dan the Man’s birthday we are going to look at concerts from some of his favorite bands!

Taken at the 2019 Wacken Open Air concert, this performance rocks despite the aging band members. They still rock it as hard as they did back in the 1980’s unlike some “other” 80’s metal bands…

Rising Everything

Rising Everything

Interesting article from the Alzheimer’s Association on the power of ice cream and those with dementia. Is this why the president seems to be obsessed with ice cream?

The Cleveland Indians as of the 2022 season will be known as the Guardians in reference to the statues adorning the Hope Memorial Bridge, “The Guardians of Traffic”…

“Clerks III” is set to begin filming in Red Bank, NJ in August thanks to Lionsgate Entertainment. Not sure what to think about this…

Someone started a meme about Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin liftoff by mashing it up with scenes from “Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery”…

Chip shortages, new car shortages, decreased repossessions/fleet sales/off-lease cars are raising prices in the used car market. Prices rose 30% in the month of May alone…

Wingstop has started a new virtual restaurant, “Thighstop”, selling chicken thighs because prices for chicken/beef are rising & shortages are happening…

The NFL is essentially forcing its players to be vaccinated or forfeit games/paychecks

Eric Clapton will not play venues with vaccine requirements

Sunday Cinema – “Dropkick Murphys”

All this month on “Sunday Cinema” in celebration of Dan the Man’s birthday we are going to look at concerts from some of his favorite bands!

Taken from a concert in 2016, the Dropkick Murphys are an American Celtic punk band (!) from Massachusetts. Definitely a band to check out if you’re looking for “hooligan” and bar fight type music…

Punchable Face

Truth…

Punchable Face

This week’s pod was inspired by the Reddit thread, “Who is the Most Punchable Person in Fiction?” and the first comment was Percy from the movie “The Shawshank Redemption”…

Someone else commented (and Dan the Man concurred) Grandpa Joe from “Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”. Here’s Jim Rome’s commentary on Grandpa Joe (well worth the listen!)…

T-Shirt Hell is a great site for offensive t-shirts. Here’s one of our favorites:

We talked about a lot of stuff and may have missed one or two links – so sorry, listen again and find them for yourself! 😉

Sunday Cinema “Psychostick”

All this month on “Sunday Cinema” in celebration of Dan the Man’s birthday we are going to look at concerts from some of his favorite bands!

Dan the Man turned me on to Psychostick a few years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since. Earlier this year they streamed a whole concert from “space”, enjoy the entire stream of covers and original songs!

Sunday Cinema – “Great Big Sea”

All this month on “Sunday Cinema” in celebration of Dan the Man’s birthday we are going to look at concerts from some of his favorite bands!

Great Big Sea is a Canadian folk rock band with twangs of Scottish, Irish, & Cornish influences. This concert was taken from one of their DVD releases and represents them well…

Sunday Cinema – “Hamburger the Motion Picture

A classic 1980’s T&A flick about a guy’s journey to become a manager at a fast food restaurant (a parody of MocDonald’s) in order to get an inheritance of $250,000. Lots of sexual innuendo jokes, puerile humor, and plenty of bare chests, it has a lot going for it in addition to the 1980’s nostalgia. With stars such as Dick Butkus, Chuck McCann, & Randi Brooks, it’s a B-movie for sure but well worth the price of admission.

The film is in limbo as far as who owns the rights so it may never see a DVD or Blu-Ray release, someone posted their VHS copy online for all to enjoy!

Sweet Caroline

Sweet Caroline

This week the boys got together and played a “girl song” quiz with Dan the Man getting about 80% correct. There were a few curve balls but he did very well!

As promised, MattyV did research into why “Sweet Caroline” is used at sporting events and found its origins at Fenway Park in 1997…

Although not totally true that unvaccinated kids cannot get wishes granted – the Make-A-Wish Foundation is limiting the wishes granted to non-vaccinated children. If children are unvaccinated, no wishes involving travel will be granted. A little disturbing since the WHO revised their prior statements and said children should not get the vaccine...

The boys talked about other stuff but we’re in a rush to get this pod out, listen in to see what else was discussed!

Trogdor the Burninator!

One of the early memes to come out of Homestar Runner was the character of Trogdor. He had a board game, a video game, a fan convention, & a song.

Here’s a poor copy of the song put to pictures of Trogdor

Senor Mortgage

One of Strong Bad’s alter-egos is that of Senor Cardgage (one of my favorites!).

Senor Cardgage has gotten into the mortgage game, check it out!
