Sunday Cinema – Tying a Bow Tie

tie

 

This month we are doing a sort of PSA on skills that you may want to pick up in the new year. Everyone talks about reading more, or exercising more, or saving money but no one chooses practical skills. So enjoy this month of new skills to learn!

Sure this one may be for the men, but women can benefit from this as well. What’s sexier than a woman tying your bow tie, think “50 Shades of Grey”…

Again, we live in a society of clip-on ties. This video from Howcast has gotten over 5 million views and I can see why. Learning to tie a bow tie from someone at a REAL gentlemen’s shop is interesting indeed…

And so…

And so…

I messed up. The raw footage for today’s podcast is long-lost to the ether, deleted by accident. At least here are some of the talking points we made during that pod…

 

We mourn the loss of ‘Fast’ Eddie Clarke, guitarist for Motorhead & founding member of Fastway.

First it was leniency on sexual orientation. Then leniency on tattoos. Now physical standards are finding leeway when it comes to joining the armed forces because physically-fit recruits are hard to find…

An airline (that doesn’t exist) is in need of flight attendants for their Vegas-to-Area-51 route (which doesn’t exist)…

Physically able to work and on Medicaid? Get ready to work/volunteer/educate yourselves thanks to the government allowing states the requirement for Medicare recipients.

Walmart throws its employees a bone thanks to the huge tax cut from the government. “Trickle-down economics” at work?? On the flipside, they’re closing a bunch of Sam’s Club stores. Coincidence?

An acting school that “conveniently” shut-down last year? 4 accusers are students of the former school? Come on, James

If you don’t know who Matty Matheson is, you need to find out

And you think Costco couldn’t get any more awesome… The story behind the $1.50 hot dog combo

The “Tide Pods” meme is getting old and it just recently started…

Sunday Cinema – “Baking Rolls”

Roll

 

This month we are doing a sort of PSA on skills that you may want to pick up in the new year. Everyone talks about reading more, or exercising more, or saving money but no one chooses practical skills. So enjoy this month of new skills to learn!

Bread making is something that many of us take for granted. It’s easier to get a loaf at the local supermarket or bakery, for those that want to “feel” like they’ve accomplished something will opt for frozen dough or refrigerated dough.

The video today from Baking with Mi, she shares her recipe for making dinner rolls that can compete with the rolls you can find at higher-end restaurants. The ingredients simple, prep time okay, learning to make bread/rolls without an electronic bread maker is certainly a pretty good skill to have.

The Digital Dark Age

 

The Digital Dark Age

MTV ruined several songs for us back in the early 1990’s with their constant airplay (every hour & twice during TRL!) such as:

“One” – Metallica

“Unforgiven (extended)” – Metallica

“Dangerous” – Michael Jackson

“Black or White” – Michael Jackson

 

Scientists warn that our digital content can become irretrievably lost because there is no physical copies available.

If you believe you have Crohn’s Disease, might want to have a scope done on your intestines. This woman had a Heinz ketchup packet lodged in her intestine that caused her to mimick symptoms of Crohn’s…

With the Disney-Fox merger, one Marvel franchise might not come with it…

Want to own a massage parlor in South Korea (Winter Olympics, y’all!)? You better be visually-impaired

I understand if you gotta take a sh*t, but that’s not a reason to go that fast on Texas highways...

Amazon may be buying Target, bringing their “brick & mortar” vision to a quick reality…

Speaking of reality, there still is a “Sopranos” reality tour that takes you some of the key locations from the series.

California is the latest state to legalize recreational marijuana, which allows out-of-state visitors to purchase it. Michigan may be next (it will be on the ballot for 2018)…

Iceland becomes first country to outlaw pay disparity between men & women. We totally support paying someone for their skills regardless of sex…

Sad but encouraging to know that most venison killed by hunters doesn’t go to waste, nor does it remain a luxury staple for the rich…

Sunday Cinema – “Picking Locks”

Lock

 

This month we are doing a sort of PSA on skills that you may want to pick up in the new year. Everyone talks about reading more, or exercising more, or saving money but no one chooses practical skills. So enjoy this month of new skills to learn!

YouTube has videos for just about anything, from obscure movies & television shows to changing a tire. One of the more interesting skills to learn is lock-picking. There are a metric ton of videos on lock-picking tools, techniques, so to choose one was hard.

The video today is from Von Malegowski, who’s channel may not have millions of subscribers but who’s lock-picking basics video has hit 5.5 million views. Apparently he knows a bit about picking locks.

 

Used to, used to, used to…

Used to, used to, used to…

 

Blimpie’s is the franchise one of the guys chose to start if the money was there (they have sweet red peppers!). Subway has been closing restaurants left & right in 2017, with 2018 not looking much better…

Aluminum frames from Ford need to be serviced by Ford or one of its authorized repair centers (a total of about 1600 country-wide). We assume getting repairs by a non-authorized facility will void any warranty or future claim against Ford.

For many, us guys have lost the “wrench it” mentality where guys would get together and work on each other’s homes or cars. Kinda like an old Roseanne episode

Pauly Shore’s Totally Buff Special” was a huge hit when he was on MTV, he’s still around but his stand up is rather dark & bitter…

Don Rickles, “Mr. Warmth“, is a comedian that will be missed… (your homework is in the link)…

Who would you rather do?” complaints nowadays are that there are too many choices for the game when it comes to television programs…

Violent J in the bonus chapter of “Behind the Paint”, claims he banged Missy Hyatt in the early 2000’s. He said don’t look up her photos now, she hasn’t aged well…

Alice is onboard for playing King Herod in the live-action musical “Jesus Christ Superstar” coming to NBC…

GWAR’s rendition of “West End Girls” & Lemmy’s cover of “Heroes” are interesting…

The Junkiosity Christmas Commentary

The Junkiosity Christmas Commentary

 

Today we added commentary to the episode, “Anatomy Park“, from the cult series “Rick & Morty“.

What do you do? Visit the links and listen along as we talk, joke, & talk about random stuff at the end of the podcast.

The show was born out of a series of web comics developed by Justin Roiland entitled “The Real Adventures of Doc & Mharti“. At some point there was a cease & desist ordered due to the name, so it was eventually changed to “Rick & Morty”.

Two favorite episodes are the commercial/TV show parody episodes “Rixty Minutes” & “Inter-dimensional Cable 2”. These are off-the-cuff ramblings, which are hilarious…

“Jerry’s Game”, a real-life app for iOS & Android was a game played by Jerry Smith in the episode, “Something Ricked This Way Comes“…

Just remember – “Because Boobs“… (NSFW)

We hope you and yours has a joyous holiday from the both of us at Junkiosity!

Those Network Blues

Those Network Blues

 

Netflix and other streaming services are trying (and succeeding) to compete with network & cable television by producing their own shows. What they are finding out is that just like a network company, they aren’t immune to Hollywood’s ills…

Danny Masterson has been fired from the Netflix show, “The Ranch”, amid allegations of rape. Thing is, at least one of the allegations was investigated by police back in 2000 and closed without incident. He’ll be screwed if he signed a “morals clause”

We know that Kevin Spacey has been fired from “House of Cards” and Netflix recently announced that the show will continue without his character. Writers are scrambling for a storyline to finish off the final season of the series.

Louis CK screwed himself (no pun intended) through sexual allegations from women claiming he masturbated in front of them. His 2nd Netflix special was scrapped, a film starring the comedian will not be released, & HBO removed him from their “Night of Too Many Stars” and have removed all of his projects/shows from their on-demand service.

Amazon isn’t immune, their show “Transparent” starring Jeffrey Tambor is up in the air as more information surfaces about his sexual encounters with cast members & even his assistant. Amazon isn’t being as “knee-jerk” as Netflix, it seems as though they want to see where things shake out before making a commitment such as firing the actor. The show apparently could survive without him, and one of the cast members said it may be better without him.

At a time when the country is rife with sexual assault allegations in Hollywood, the capitol is rocked as well with allegations against Al Franken, John Conyers, & Roy Moore. It came out that the government paid $100,000 in tax-payers’ dollars to settle sexual harrassment allegations regarding disgraced Congressman Eric Massa. OUR TAX DOLLARS PAID TO QUIET SEXUAL HARRASSMENT CLAIMS FROM GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES!

Back in the day when you bought a Saturn, they made it a big deal. Your photo would end up on the wall of Saturn owners. Then the company was bought by General Motors, and the uniqueness & “No Haggle Pricing” got lost until ultimately the brand was shut down…

Here’s the Samuel L. Jackson scene from “Pulp Fiction”, be careful it’s NSFW…

When isn’t it a good time for Jon LaJoie? (NSFW)

“What’s a ZJ?” “If you have to ask big man, you can’t afford it…

Originally an “Oprah’s Book Club” selection (which means automatic best-seller), much of the memoir turned out to be fiction…

Is “Die Hard” a Christmas movie? If it isn’t a Christmas movie, then neither is “It’s a Wonderful Life“…

Sunday Cinema – “A Christmas Dream”

Dream

 

All this month we’re going to look at some obscure (?) holiday-themed television episodes. It seems like just about every television show has a holiday-themed episode, even horror shows & variety shows.

NBC aired this quirky little special back in 1984 starring Emmanuel Lewis (TV’s “Webster”) and Mr. T (“The A-Team” & “DC Cab”) about a street Santa that meets a little boy who has no Christmas spirit. Mr. T takes the boy all around New York City to show him all the wonderful things about Christmas in the hopes that he regains his love of the holiday.

Featuring stars of the day such as Willie Tyler, David Copperfield, & Maureen McGovern, this a-typical Christmas special has enough to keep you interested…

Some kind soul has posted this special direct from VHS for all to see…
