Ignoramus, pt 1

 

We wonder if he will lose some of his fan base since Kev Smith is no longer a “fat man”…

Kev is a spokesperson for Weight Watchers, who has slimmed down as well. They are re-branding as “WW” and focusing on a health-centric focus that doesn’t just include losing weight.

Dunkin’ Donuts is also changing its name, dropping “Dunkin'” since they offer much more than donuts…

The new “Daredevil” season 3 trailer is interesting…. Too bad to hear “Iron Fist” was not renewed nor canceled & fans are petitioning for Netflix to renew it…

One of the theories floating around regarding the new “Infinity War” movie is that Doctor Strange did something to the time stone before giving it to Thanos

2 NFL teams are apparently looking at Colin Kapernick despite his convictions. Rob Gronkowski threatened to retire if traded to the Lions, he actually would retire if he could not remain with the Patriots...

Much like Randall, we as kids were ignorant of certain phrases and their meanings.

 

Stay tuned to the conclusion of the “lost pod”, where you will hear Dan the Man’s story and much more!

Sunday Cinema – “Dead of Night”

night

 

From some of the people who brought you “Dark Shadows”, “The Night Stalker”, & another anthology series, “Trilogy of Terror”, we have “Dead of Night”.

This is a late-1970’s made-for-television horror special containing 3 different stories, one of which starred a young Ed Begley, Jr.

“Second Chance” – a man rebuilds a car that travels back into time.

“No Such Thing as a Vampire” – A doctor tries to prove that his wife wasn’t bitten by a vampire.

“Bobby” – A woman distraught over the loss of her son does ANYTHING to bring him back. (This one was remade as a part of the “Trilogy of Terror” anthology)

 

Creepy but not too scary to enjoy. Someone posted a semi-decent copy online for all to enjoy…

 

Sunday Cinema – “Comedy of Horrors”

Vinton

 

Will Vinton passed away earlier last week. Some of his notable works would be his commercial work for Domino’s (“Avoid the Noid!”), the California raisin council (remember “The California Raisins” commercials?), and of course the Eddie Murphy claymation show “The PJs”.

His work can be seen in movies (“Return to Oz”), music videos (the “Speed Demon” music video for Michael Jackson), and television (“The PJs” & “The California Raisins Show”). He had turned into the 80’s & 90’s version of Rankin & Bass with a series of holiday specials from Easter to Christmas.

In this special, Wilshire Pig & Sheldon Snail find a map and uncover Dr. Frankenswine’s Monster. The claymation seems rather dated and unrefined compared to the magic of “CGI claymation” today, there is still some nostalgia and laughter to be had.

Someone posted it online for all to reminisce and enjoy a good laugh or two…

 

Sunday Cinema – “The School Picture”

Beaver

 

Our last entry in this month’s theme is a classic episode from the old sitcom, “Leave it to Beaver” where Beaver is convinced by Gilbert (dammit Gilbert!) to make a funny face for the class picture and it isn’t discovered until the yearbook is printed…

Someone posted this wholesome episode online for all to enjoy!

Sunday Cinema – “Back to School Mr. Bean”

bean

 

Continuing with this month’s theme of “back to school” episodes, we share this one of a British comedy that wasn’t too widely received here in the states. “Mr. Bean” starring Rowan Atkinson (of “Black Adder” fame) is a bumbling gentleman that seems to get into the strangest predicaments. This episode finds Mr. Bean going back to school and all the hilarity that ensues when an adult tries to make it through a typical student’s day.

Sunday Cinema – “Back 2 School”

 

Boy

 

This week’s “Sunday Cinema” looks at an episode of “Boy Meets World” where Corey and the gang survive the first day of high school. Many fond (and no-so-fond) memories of those times seem to erupt throughout the episode, at least for us.

Someone graciously (albeit poorly) has shared this episode online for others to reminisce about the happiness (and horror) of starting high school…

The Battle for Content

The Battle for Content

One of the earliest Tom Petty videos remembered was the “Mad Max”-inspired video for the song, “You Got Lucky”. Suspend rationale while watching as I don’t think a buried boombox will have enough juice to work and where did the power come from/why hasn’t anyone else seen it?

American Horror Story: Apocalypse” is starting tomorrow, you watching?

A crappy video rip, here is the scene from “Night of the Comet” where Reggie plays Tempest and freaks out over someone overtaking one of her high scores…

Disney is scrambling to launch a new digital streaming platform, conclude the purchase of Fox, & reduce its debt-load. Cable channels are playing catch-up to Netflix & Hulu…

Hulu has done something a little different than other streaming platforms and it seems to have worked. The “Castle Rock” 10-episode series premiered new episodes once a week like traditional television channels and people still watched. It has been renewed for a 2nd season…

Sunday Cinema – “Square Pegs”

 

Square

 

For September we thought we would commorate the first day of school for many kids across the country (sucks to be those kids that started in August! We kid, we kid!) with some school-themed television episodes.

“Square Pegs” was a short-lived television series trying to cash in on the wave of teen/high school movies that had seen success. With a theme song by the popular nu-wave group The Waitresses and starring a very young Sarah Jessica Parker, the show focused on a couple of teen girls bent on becoming a part of the “popular” clique at school. Jami Gertz also makes her debut, you may remember her from ‘The Lost Boys” or “Less than Zero”.

Some kind soul posted this for us Gen-Xers to fondly recall…
