Dan the Man’s been in the basement playing the latest WoW expansion to escape the heat. Any other WoW players? Let us know!

Deven Davis has died from possible drug overdose, oddly on the same day her husband had a restraining order against her so she could not contact their kids. Jonathan has been sober since 2014, Deven could not overcome her demons…

Netflix cancels Michelle Wolf’s show and Joel McHale’s shows due to low ratings. Is it worse to get fired by a streaming service than a traditional content channel?

Castle Rock“, the new Hulu series based upon the works of Stephen King is a fascinatingly terrifying storyline regarding a young man with a mysterious past.

Here are 20 things to know about the upcoming “The Purge” television show that takes place 10 years after the first “Purge Night”. It’s within the universe of the movies, but will focus on new characters and situations.

“Titus” was a good show, but apparently Chris riled some feathers at Fox that tanked the show…

Movie adaptations of books are sometimes great and sometimes horrible. CBS has an article with their picks of the 16 best & worst movie adaptations...

YouTube “influencers” are either burning out or blowing up these days, spending 60-70 hours a week to create content in order to get the views needed to get paid. Others are finding that their past is coming back to haunt them. Others are starting to “jump the shark” and fade away like Epic Meal Time

Sometimes the downfall of celebrities is tragic. MC Hammer lost everything in 1996 due to mismanagement & flat-out excess. Dee Snider was putting flyers on cars advertising his wife’s cosmetology business when he wasn’t selling insurance (!) after Twisted Sister broke up

Here’s the ending of the Seinfeld episode where George makes it big in the stock market where Elaine & Jerry had gotten out…

Sunday Cinema – Kids and Drugs

Drugs

With school fast approaching (yea for parents!), the jokers at Junkiosity thought it might be fun to take a look at some old educational movies that we LOVED to watch back in school (we say LOVED because it meant we could either sleep or mess around with little intervention from the teachers). Some are sponsored by big corporations, others not-so-much.

 

This week we look at a Disney-sponsored film produced in 1983 about the reasons kids are so susceptible to drugs. This presentation was usually followed up by a full-color teacher’s guide and little pamphlets or info sheets we would take home to our parents (who would promptly use them as rolling papers… Just kidding!). Much of the information is dated and some of it inaccurate, it’s still a time capsule into the youth of Generation X…

Someone posted this online so that others can learn why kids choose drugs

 

 

 

For Theater Times…

For Theater Times…

 

Both boys worked for movie theaters back in their heyday when it was these place to see movies (before streaming/internet pirating). Reminiscing about their antics, check out this Reddit thread with more “behind the scenes” stories of theater employees.

I knew a manager exactly like this, unfortunately they didn’t get fired but promoted by overworking skeleton staff & other cost-cutting measures.

Jerry Jones is trying to put a stop to the political grandstanding (pun intended) with players who kneel during the national anthem in protest. The boys agree that these players are at a workplace when they are on the field and therefore it should not be the place to promote their political ideologies. We watch sports to escape politics and other bad news on television…

The Kitty Genovese case was tragic, a half hour she was attacked and no one came to her rescue. Psychology Today had a recent article talking about the “bystander effect”

Hands Across America“, “Live Aid“, post-9/11, all of these events brought our country together as one nation. It wasn’t #metoo, it was #wetoo…

Remember, 60% of the time – it works every time

Looks like Dan the Man may have been duped by a 4Chan misinformation campaign

“Ecosexuals” are those who have a sexual fetish involving nature, like literally having sex with trees & dirt...

Teachers like Debra Lafave or Mary Kay Letourneau blow our minds (ha ha) as they were fairly attractive and could have just any guy their age at the time but instead preyed upon teen students.

“A Time to Kill” is a rough movie to watch for fathers, let alone fathers of young daughters…

Yes, there are barefoot stickers or “minimalist shoes“…

Dickie Greenleaf” was Jude Law’s character in “The Talented Mr. Ripley” starring Matt Damon. Hence the moniker in the “Deadpool 2” credits…

And yes, some gentleman in Canada changed his sex legally so he could get cheaper car insurance…

Sunday Cinema – Smoking

Smoking

 

With school fast approaching (yea for parents!), the jokers at Junkiosity thought it might be fun to take a look at some old educational movies that we LOVED to watch back in school (we say LOVED because it meant we could either sleep or mess around with little intervention from the teachers). Some are sponsored by big corporations, others not-so-much.

Touted as a rare find, this animated anti-smoking educational film came out back in 1981 to share with kids the dangers of smoking. Now I wonder how many of the animators & directors were smokers while this was being made… Someone found this forgotten gem and posted it online for all to see…

Sunday Cinema – Hygiene

Goofy

 

With school fast approaching (yea for parents!), the jokers at Junkiosity thought it might be fun to take a look at some old educational movies that we LOVED to watch back in school (we say LOVED because it meant we could either sleep or mess around with little intervention from the teachers). Some are sponsored by big corporations, others not-so-much.

Another late-1980’s educational film aimed at teaching children the importance of hygiene and was targeting elementary school students. Someone found this old copy and transferred it so that others can enjoy the kitschy-ness of it…

Sunday Cinema – Crack

crack

With school fast approaching (yea for parents!), the jokers at Junkiosity thought it might be fun to take a look at some old educational movies that we LOVED to watch back in school (we say LOVED because it meant we could either sleep or mess around with little intervention from the teachers). Some are sponsored by big corporations, others not-so-much.

Produced in 1987, this educational film came out when crack cocaine had become an epidemic across the country. Haunting images from movies like “New Jack City” showing people stoning out in alleys & abandoned buildings or offering to suck d*ck for it not only showed some truth, but also used it as a scare tactic.

Interesting to note that the boy in the movie went on to co-star in a few B-movies, ultimately leaving the acting world to become a teacher in California. Someone posted this online so that others can learn about the lie that is CRACK!
