Dat’s Racist!

Dat’s Racist!

Follow us on Twitter & Facebook and see the “earth sex” video the boys reference in the episode. MattyV made reference to this scene in “Superstar” with Molly Shannon…

We’ve noticed some commercials on our local channels that are either racist or don’t make a whole lot of sense:

  • The online K-12 program commercial had a total of 3 white people out of the 10-12 shown (a white female teacher/white blond-haired teen boy/auburn-coiffed teen girl) & another showed just 2 Asians (a 14-year old & a 24-year old according to the commercial). Is it racist or trying to convey to message that all ethnicity persons qualify for online education and not just healthy-looking white kids?
  • There’s a local laser eye surgery facility that has a former state representative praising the work he had done on his eyes. The confusing part? They filmed him in and around the capitol building in Lansing & using his cellphone for “work”. If he is a FORMER state representative, why would he be at the capitol building???

As short as 4 years ago, someone posted an article on what it’s like being a westerner that visited North Korea. Apparently a lot has changed in 4 years as some of the stuff from  the article has been refuted in this Q&A someone did on a trip they took to North Korea recently and yes, it is a creepy & bleak outside the capital city…

Forget lossless compression. Forget vinyl. How about some digitized 78rpm ditties?

Watching Japanese people say racists things, who knew it would be so funny?

Gwyneth Paltrow’s company was selling vajayjay eggs

Rob Cockerham over at Cockeyed.com created a working “fidget spinner” costume that he unveiled at the SDCC this year. He’s created some pretty spectacular costumes over the years…

Dinosaur Dracula did an article a few years ago on a local “beach fair” he attended. Let’s just say it was less than stellar

The 16th of August is the anniversary of the death of Elvis Presely, the King of Rock & Roll. MattyV recalls Eddie Murphy tributes, the Aloha from Hawaii special, & the infamous phone call placed years after his death…

The Pizza Challenge Gauntlet – a new segment we are doing once a month or so when we purchase a pizza and decide who has the best slice of your standard-run-of-the-mill pizza (no fancy goat cheese or any of that shit). The criteria for the gauntlet is as follows:

  • large hand-tossed (or normal) round pizza
  • pepperoni & cheese only
  • warm, not hot or cold

We will be judging on:

  • total pepperoni count (slices that can be seen)
  • total slices provided (how it’s cut)
  • texture/gooeyness of cheese (1 is the worst, 5 is the best)
  • texture/flexibility of the crust (1 is the worst, 5 is the best)
  • mouth feel & flavor (1 is the worst, 5 is the best)
  • price per slice (rounded up)

Most cumulative points is the winner,  we will use average scores of all participants.

Little Caesar’s ExtraMostBestest (formerly known as the “Hot-n-Ready” pizza) claims to have the most pepperoni & cheese for less than similar pizzas from the bigger pizza chains. How did they stack up?

Total Pepperoni Count = 60+ slices

Total Slices Cut = 8

Price Per Slice = $1.00

Dan the Man – 12 Points

MattyV – 11 Points

Average score 10 Total Points

We shall see if this point total can hold up to the challenge gauntlet…

Sunday Cinema – “Lifesaver Cherie”

punky

All this month we are looking at “very special episodes” from 1970’s & 1980’s television shows. The tagline was meant to inform the viewer that the particular episode was going to talk about a real-life problem in the context of the show. These are some of the more familiar episodes that us Gen-Xers remember.

This episode of “Punky Brewster” finds Henry having to buy a new fridge when his WWII-era fridge conks out. Buying a new fridge from none other than the actor who plays sleazeball salesman Herb Tarlek (Frank Bonner) on “WKRP in Cinncinnati”, he puts the old fridge in the back of the tenement building  without removing the door. One game of hide & seek almost ends tragically…

Someone posted this episode  online for us to remember…

Pizza! Pizza!, City Slickers, & Snowflakes

Pizza! Pizza!, City Slickers, & Snowflakes

If you’re a bit insensitive and can’t handle commentary on a very harsh label, you might not want to watch this video. We can say, however, it’s a pretty interesting commentary…

Dan the Man mentioned this video of Adam Carolla speaking on Capitol Hill about kids growing up immature in the name of “protection”.

Back in 2013, the website “Elite Daily” published an article with 10 reasons why Generation Y is soft…

PizzaPizza! was the cry back in the 1980’s from Little Caesars, both boys remember those wonderful white sleeves that encapsulated 2 pizzas on a cardboard tray.

Here’s the unedited video from the “Tana meets iDubbbz” commentary…

Here’s how to bullsh*t on your resume, but there are pitfalls in doing so

The basic premise of MattyV’s claymation project was a couple of prisoners escaped from prison, stole a jeep, plowed through a flock of chickens, & ended with a shoot-out with the police. All of the action was done to the song, “Jailbreak ’74” by AC/DC. MattyV loved working with video in art class and really showed his ability to both create and direct…

This isn’t the exact clip from “City Slickers”, but it’s still relevant to the conversation we had…

MattyV really recommends Bruce Campbell’s book, “If Chins Could Kill, Confessions of a B-Movie Actor“. Great behind-the-scenes stories of “Evil Dead”, “Brisco County, Jr.” among others…

Sunday Cinema – “Edith’s 50th Birthday”

All

All this month we are looking at “very special episodes” from 1970’s & 1980’s television shows. The tagline was meant to inform the viewer that the particular episode was going to talk about a real-life problem in the context of the show. These are some of the more familiar episodes that us Gen-Xers remember.

 

“All in the Family” was a pretty controversial show when it aired back in the 1970’s. One of the biggest happened in season 8 when Edith was almost raped on her 50th birthday. The subject was touched on in an earlier season when Gloria was attacked off-screen and there was just discussions about it. Here in this 2-part episode, we see the attempted rape and what it did to Edith mentally. It’s a hard set of episodes to watch.

Someone posted both episodes back-to-back for all the take a real hard look at…

Sweet Revenge

Sweet Revenge

 

Think “Lorena Bobbitt” meets “Jaws” and I believe you will have the image of what happened

Revenge isn’t something we actively seek out, but when the stars align

There’s “I told you so” revenge from fired employees, and then there is such blatant revenge like these examples

Reddit has several sub-Reddits about all types of revenge…

Even musicians have ways to exact revenge on those that cross them…

Cracked used to be a bi-monthly humor magazine out to rival MAD Magazine. Cracked lost the publication war & folded in 2007, but has revived itself as a sort of “BuzzFeed” or “clickbait” article hub. MattyV recently saw this article on revenge that fits the theme…

Here’s the GIF of the Creature from the Black Lagoon Dan the Man had mentioned…

 

Real Porn Titles (Do a Google search for the actual porn titles, we ain’t linking them here!):

“Blown in 60 Seconds” – Parody of “Gone in 60 Seconds

“Lawrence of My Labia” – Parody of “Lawrence of Arabia

Sunday Cinema – “The Monster of Piedras Blancas”

 

Piedras

 

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

Probably one of the earliest versions of a “mockbuster”, this film is a rip-off of the popular Universal Pictures horror that was “The Creature from the Black Lagoon”. The titles are similar (“Piedras Blancas” roughly translates to “White Stones” or “White Pebbles”) as well as the look/origin of the monsters as well (both are humanoid “gill men” with similar features) due to the fact that the designer had designed suits for both movies.

A lowly lighthouse keeper trying to keep his teen daughter safe, offers food to a mysterious creature that lives in a cave along the shore. Locals think him crazy until bodies begin to appear on the beach, ravaged by something non-human…

Someone posted the entire schlock-fest online for all to enjoy…

July is usually a “tent pole” month for movie studios. Many blockbusters are released in the middle of summer to cash in on the lucrative Fourth of July holiday. This month we decided to share some “mockbusters”, films that are often blatant rip-offs of real blockbuster movies to cash in on their popularity.

With the Disneyworld area unleashed and the promise of 2 more sequels, how best can you capitalize on a film when you don’t own the film property? Mash a part of the film’s premise together with another big franchise and you get this turd. 6 college students are stuck in the middle of an intergalactic war between 2 races of aliens, one race that can shape-shift into anything using the DNA it consumes…

Pandering to the Masses

Pandering to the Masses

 

The office building where MattyV works will be demolished and replaced with an 8-screen movie theater with dine-in service. These are becoming more and more common as theater owners try to get people into the theater seats while competing with internet streaming & other distractions. Thrillist has an article from 2013 on cool dine-in movie theaters across the country…

Dan the Man’s obsession with Burger King’s “2 for $5” Italian chicken sandwich deal

MattyV is a Kubrick fan, Dan the Man is a mini-series fan when it comes to “The Shining”. Oh, and it’s Mr. Halloran the boys couldn’t remember the name of.

If Chins Could Kill – Confessions of a B-Movie Actor” by Bruce Campbell is a pretty good Audible book. Read by the author, Bruce’s dulcet tones are dreamy…

Is “Seven” a good baby’s name? George Costanza thinks so

Out for a Sip?”, well Coca-Cola is in trouble with a Canadian rapper that trademarked that phrase. Interesting to see how they respond….

As far as making YouTube money, it’s possible if you have the content to attract an audience and keep them. Chandler Dickinson, James Townsend, & Rob Scallon do well with attracting & maintaining their audiences.

What do you get when you mix “Revenge of the Nerds”, “Spring Breakers”, & “American Pie”? You get this raunchy T&A fest starring Lewis Skolnic himself. A take on the film starring James Franco & Selena Gomez, check the YouTube comments for time markers where nudity can be gawked at…

Spidey Sense

Spidey Sense

This week the boys checked out “Spiderman:Homecoming” at the theater, so if you don’t want things spoiled – DON’T LISTEN until after you’ve seen it!

Nerdist has been a great resource for the movie, sharing possible MCU spoilers, looking at the science of Spiderman’s wall-crawling, & whether or not there will be a Spiderman/Venom cross-over movie.

Hearken back 2 years when we mentioned the cheesy Turkish rip-off of Spiderman (“3 Dev Adam” in our Sunday Cinema ‘Turkish Star Wars” blog entry.

Us Gen-Xers remember the 1977-1978 CBS television series, “The Amazing Spiderman“, starring Nicholas Hammond as the webbed wonder. Or maybe the old Electric Company skits on PBS.

Jennifer Connolly (who voices “Karen”, Peter’s suit AI) shows some titties along with Virginia Madsen in “The Hot Spot“.

John Francis Daley co-wrote the script, you might remember him as Sam from “Freaks & Geeks“.

Aladdin’s Castle was THE place to be in any mall. NBA Jam, Mortal Kombat, & Street Fighter ruled the day…

SNES Classic is going to contain Star Fox 2, an unreleased SNES title. Hopefully they will have enough in production to meet demand…

Sega is releasing their catalog of games on both Android & iOS, free-to-play with ads or you can pay to have the ads removed…

One of the more recent actors to wear the Spidey suit, Andrew Garfield, is in a bit of trouble when he said upon researching his role as a gay man that he was essentially gay without the physical act.

MattyV has been late to the party, he JUST nicely finished “Rick and Morty“…

Technically, there are a total of 8 Infinity Gems. The original six are a part of the MCU…
