This week we talked about a few things including reboots! A “reboot” is when a company re-launches an old franchise/brand/show/film to appeal to both an older audience that remembers the original & a younger audience that may not be aware that there was an original.

Matty found some nifty articles on Wikipedia relating to today’s subject matter:

List of Movie Remakes A-M

List of Movie Remakes N-Z

List of Films Based on Television Shows

 

Matty found this the other day, a company has released photos for the 20th anniversary release of the movie, “The Little Rascals” featuring the original cast recreating the movie poster and some scenes from the film…

ALSA has withdrawn their trademark app for the phrase, “Ice Bucket Challenge“, amid outcries from the public. This reminds me of the whole Susan G. Komen lawsuits over their slogan and its use by other charities (as well as the use of the color pink!).

The gang also revisited last week’s conversation regarding the nude photo leak and Dan the Man revealed that he was quite the cinematographer back in the day. He claims that it was all done artistically & the subjects were of legal, consenting age…

We had wondered about the proliferation of for-profit schools and their impact on the educational landscape. This Frontline video is pretty interesting on the subject entitled, “College Inc.”

Jen is really into the Vuse electronic cigarette, after trying several types of electronic cigarettes she found the Vuse to be the best so far. The only complaint is the recharge packs don’t last as long as stated on the packs…

Dan’s into the series, “Boardwalk Empire” and cannot wait for the last season of “Sons of Anarchy” to start…

Matty was so into the 8th season of “Trailer Park Boys” that he finished the entire season in 2 days…

 

Looking for a new drink recipe? Why not try the “Gummy Bear Sangria” for your next get-together!

 

Don’t forget to donate to our GoFundMe page so we can upgrade our equipment and bring you a better pod!

 

Until next week, Junkies!
