Sunday Cinema – “Killer Fish”

All this month we are looking at “killer” movies in the hopes that 2019 turns out to be a killer year for you and for our podcast!

Lee Majors (fresh off his “Six Million Dollar Man” series) stars in this Brazilian horror film about a group of thieves wanting to steal a load of jewels and treasure in piranha-infested waters . Hoping to cash in on the success of “Jaws”, “Orca”, and to a lesser-extent “Piranha!”, this movie actually has some notable stars such as Margot Hemingway (spelled “Margeaux”, James Fransciscus (from “Beneath the Planet of the Apes” and the “Jaws” rip-off “Great White”), & even Gary Collins!

Sunday Cinema – “Christmas But Once…”

All this month we’re going to look at older Christmas specials and cartoons. Sure there are the Rankin/Bass cartoons, the specials from the 1980’s and such but it’s the earlier ones that seem to have a kind of charm all their own.

This one is from 1936 and produced by Fleischer Studios (who also produced the Popeye & Betty Boop cartoons), orphaned kids are given broken toys and Grampy comes to their rescue.

Radioactive Energy!

Radioactive Energy!

Back at the turn of the century not much was known about radioactivity nor the dangers involved. “The Radium Girls” is a fascinating story about the women who painted clock & watch dials with luminescent paint containing radium (they all died horrible deaths & their graves are radioactive!). Another is this article on drinks containing radioactive material touted as giving energy and healing all sorts of ailments.

A German teen got his drivers license and within an hour had it promptly revoked… Dummkopf…

We’re sorry for the family of the missionary, but if you visit a forbidden island to visit a “no contact” tribe and get shot at with an arrow that pierces the bible you’re holding – DON’T GO BACK TO SAID ISLAND!

2 domestic battery charges (one dropped), a gun possession charge, and a marijuana-related charge? That’s no way to start your NFL career Reuben Foster…

One Silicon Valley start-up is getting back to basics – treat employees well and maybe they will care about the company and want to help it prosper…

From the Walt Disney Studio’s Silly Symphony, a toy discarded at the dump rallies other “broken toys” together and find new homes.

Today is Your Day

Today is your day

The loss was felt for Max & MattyV, even with a last-push for numbers they couldn’t beat 8 appearances of various iterations of Harley Quinn versus only 6 appearances of Deadpool. What’s even sadder is that number of Velmas from “Scooby Doo” also numbered 6 appearances…

We HIGHLY-RECOMMEND Marco’s Pizza if you have one near your house. The sausage is to die for and the sauce is top-notch!

You never discount what you will/won’t do for money because it all comes down to your current situation at the time. People often do surprising things when desperate.

Jake Busey talked about his career, about being asked to be a part of the “The Predator” and his part in the upcoming season 3 of “Stranger Things” (all he could say is that he is plays a reporter with loose morals and a sick sense of humor). It was interesting to note that his character in the “Predator” movie is the son of the character his father played in the original…

Are villains written poorly so the good guys can defeat them easily?

Did you know that the “Fat Man” weapon from the Fallout game series has a real-world equivalent?

A student snowed his teacher into believe the country of Wakanda (the birthplace of Marvel’s Black Panther)…

Sunday Cinema – “What is This – Thanksgiving or a Nightmare?”

Jerry

 

All this month we are featuring some more “Thanksgiving” -themed episodes from a few more “obscure” television shows over the past few decades.

In this episode of the obscure series, “Accidental Family”, Jerry (Jerry Van Dyke ) invites some of his Las Vegas comedian friends over for Thanksgiving while the governess of his child was hoping for a quiet time with her parents…

A Thanksgiving to Remember

 

Junk Thanks

 

In lieu of a new podcast, we decided to share a memory from our humble beginnings. Back in 2015 a couple of schmoes decided to try something new. They’d always had conversations and outright arguments, laughing and joking around. They shared opinions and trivia, some laughable and some cringe-worthy. Thus, Junkiosity – The Pod was born!

The pod’s first Thanksgiving found them recreating the dinner prepared by Snoopy & Woodstock in the perennial classic, “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” and commenting on the show (which at the time was available on YouTube for free). From the simple 2-channel amp to our more sophisticated setup today, the pod’s mantra has remained the same – “2 Schmoes sharing their vast knowledge of absolutely nothing”.

We hope you enjoy this flashback commentary from our first Thanksgiving and hope that you and yours have a safe & wonderful holiday!
