In this episode of the failed Fox series, “Normal, Ohio”, Butch (John Goodman) gets his family to prepare a great Thanksgiving but then bails on them to go to a football game…

2018 Comic Con! pt 1

He also got to meet (and hug!) the lovely Anastasia Baranova, the actress that plays “Addy Carver” on the television series “Z Nation”. She is a super-sweet gal that we could tell genuine loves her fans and understands their importance.

There were other “big name” stars despite what Matty said. John Ratzenberger (“Cliff” from “Cheers” & the voice of many Pixar movie characters), Adrian Paul (of television’s “The Highlander”), the “Mads” from MST3K (Trace Beaulieu & Frank Coniff), Jake Busey (“Starship Troopers”, “The Frighteners”, “Home Fries”), & Walter Koenig (Pavel Chekov from the original “Star Trek” series. (Walter’s line was non-existent while YouTubers Odd1sOut had a line that almost went from one side of the convention hall to the other!)

Jake Busey had a Q&A, talked about his career & shared some tidbits from the new “Predator” movie (where he plays the son of his father’s character from the original movie). He also shared how tight-lipped he has to be about the 3rd season of “Stranger Things” and what the kids were like. All he could mention was that his character is a journalist with questionable morals & a sick sense of humor…

We certainly agree that Psychostick needs to do the song, “Danger Zone” on the new Top Gun movie!

Dez Bryant might be screwed

Rob Scallon has been talked about before on the podcast. His ukulele covers are hilarious (and amazing!), working with 100+ year old recording equipment, & playing Metallica’s “One” on a single 8-string guitar

Little Big is a hilarious band, “Skibidi” has gone viral. “Faradenza” is also a good one. Check them out!

Originally Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was set to play the rogue character “Lobo”, but now he’s playing Black Adam in “Shazam” so they will be looking for someone else.  This is going in/out of development, with the success of “Deadpool” – “Lobo” could be DC’s answer to the “Merc with a Mouth”…

A Dutchman is wanting the right to change his age from 69 to 49 because he feels it will benefit him on dating websites such as “Tinder”…

Fulla Crap

Fulla Crap

Carol Spinney, known to Gen Xers as playing “Big Bird” on the children’s television show “Sesame Street” has called it quits after 50 years

The Mule” is a definite must-see for fans of the older Clint Eastwood. If you loved “Gran Torino“, we think this will be well-received also…

Cracked.com has an article of 6 famous documentaries that were fulla crap…

Someone posted a re-broadcast of the infamous “Mystery of Al Capone’s Vault” with Geraldo Rivera…

Verne Troyer’s death has finally been certified to be from suicide. This is sad on so many levels, from his YouTube channel it looked as though he was doing better…

Well that’s sh*tty, divers in Charleston, SC had to dive down almost 100ft to unclog a massive pile of “flushable” diaper wipes that caused several towns’ sewers to back up…

The PSLF program, one where college students can receive loan forgiveness if they work in the public service industry (doctor/nurse/firefighter/military) for 10 years and make 120 on-time payments. Thing is, 99% of those who apply are denied

UK is ahead of the curve by allowing medical cannabis products prescriptions to be available November 1st for patients on the NHS. Ali G approves

The owners of “A Christmas Story” house have had similar issues but have worked with the city to make sure that none of the locals are inconvenienced badly. Some have taken to selling spots in their homes/driveways to tourists. Astoria & the neighborhood surrounding the “Goonies” home need to embrace this 1980’s movie icon and exploit it for cash…

There’s pranks and then there’s a*sholish-ness when it comes to high school students. What was the pay-off of passing out human ashes baked into sugar cookies?

A beer shortage? What? A Coffee shortage? What? A cocoa shortage? What????

Sunday Cinema – “Perfect Thanksgiving”

Titus

All this month we are featuring some more “Thanksgiving” -themed episodes from a few more “obscure” television shows over the past few decades.

Sunday Cinema – “Body Bags”

 

Body

 

Back in the late 1980’s, HBO found new popularity with a series based on the old EC Comics “Tales from the Crypt” stories. Filled with fairly well-known actors, the series received great success and spawned 2 movies – “Tales from the Crypt: Demon Knight” and “Tales from the Crypt: Bordello of Blood“.

Showtime decided to try and capture some of that market with “Body Bags“, bringing horror masters John Carpenter & Tobe Hooper on board. Three episodes were developed and shot before Showtime decided that this was no longer a direction they wanted to go. Instead, they released the unconnected episodes together into a movie with John Carpenter & Tobe Hooper “Book-ending” the episodes as a pair of deranged morgue attendants. It was only years later that they dove back into the genre with their “Masters of Horror” series that showcased many interesting tales as told by some of the greatest minds in the horror world.

The three tales are:

“The Gas Station” – a young college student starts her night shift job at a gas station in Haddonfield, IL (!) and learned about a serial killer that had escaped from the local mental institution.

“The Hair” – A middle-aged businessman worried about his thinning hair gets a hair transplant with interesting results.

“The Eye” – A baseball player loses an eye in a car accident, an operation to replace it with a donor eye has some unwanted results.

It’s sad that this wasn’t developed into a series, the episodes in this anthology were spot on. At least someone posted it for all to enjoy what could have been…

We start off with Dan telling his story hinted about last week. Then we creep into pervert teacher stories, Reddit has a thread on other’s stories

Hearing the story of the teacher and his father reminded me of “The Last Lecture” from several years ago…

More horrible teacher stories

Milking it to the max, here’s the video of the lady hit in the head by a newspaper…

How to play “Paper Football“… Or maybe a “Chinese Star”?

It’s horrible for sure and we don’t doubt that something happened to this woman. There are too many variables and inconsistencies over the past 30+ years that has clouded the whole ordeal. We wonder though, because of this ordeal, how many innocent people (men and women) will be hurt by false accusations. Our conversation at the end of the podcast was an honest one raising questions and hashing things out using the info we had at the time. We even prove “false memories” when discussing our recollections of the senior high graduation party both of us attended.

Dan reference the 1997 movie, “The Devil’s Advocate” with Keanu Reeves & Al Pacino. Something to check out…

The 1980’s were rife with “satanic cult” stories, the most-prolific was about a daycare that supposedly sacrificed children.

Sunday Cinema – “Scare Package”

Camp Candy

 

Yes, John Candy has his own cartoon show in the early 1990’s. Yes, it was about a kid’s summer camp. Yes, it surprisingly lasted 3 seasons and spawned a Marvel comic book series as well.

One of the campers, Iggy, watches a horror movie that causes his imagination to run amok in camp. Horror lurks around every turn for Iggy and the rest of the campers until John comes to the rescue.

Someone posted an old taped-from-TV copy online complete with early 1990’s commercials!

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…
