We didn’t get to everything today, but we still had some pretty spirited conversations!

Yes, you can watch the greatest WrestleMania III match between Hulk Hogan & Andre the Giant in all its glory!

The first of our legends centered around Nike suing other retailers for copycatting their classic Converse Chuck Taylor shoes. Didn’t someone say that imitation is the highest form of flattery?

Legends Led Zeppelin are in the news not only because of their recent album reissues, but because a judge has ruled that a lawsuit can continue stating that their hit, “Stairway to Heaven” is a plagiaristic rip-off of another tune by the semi-obscure band Spirit.

Adam Carolla  has become a legend by taking on a patent troll and kinda sorta winning. Hopefully as more people become loud and bring attention to such frivolous cases these people will stop…

Toys R Us is getting flak for selling “Breaking Bad” toys (well collectible figures) because they have tiny bags of fake meth & bags of money… “Better Call Saul” has been given a second season even though the show hasn’t aired yet… AMC must think this is a winner!

The potato chip legend, Lay’s, has announced the winner for their “Do Us A Flavor” contest and America DOES NOT like cappuccino chips! The winner was Wasabi Ginger with Mango Salsa possibly making the rounds as a 2nd choice. Wasabi Ginger? Really?

Now we know that the legend of the “Atari Landfill” is true, you can own a piece of the legend on eBay right now! If I had an extra $50 I would buy a game for the historical value, this is a myth that was proven to be true 30 years later!

Need a timewaster? Like classic video games? Then check out this archive that boasts arcade games from the 1970’s through the 1990’s that are all playable right in your browser!

We ended up the show talking about collecting and collectables. Here is a documentary someone put together about a guy that spent over $100,000 on Beanie Babies and is now bankrupt because of them…

Dan talked a little about his venture to see Psychostick and has compiled a Spotify playlist of “Dan’s Psychostick Essentials” – be warned that these are NSFW and contain explicit lyrics!!!!

 

Be sure to check out our Facebook page!

 

We’re still needing money to upgrade our pod! If you’re not into audiobooks or healthy snacks, a straight-up donation would do just nicely!

 

Until next week!
