Episode 90: Trio Synchronicity

January 25, 2022

Time for us to tackle some more music in our newest Album 1-on-1. If you don't know the drill, each idiot picks an album for the other to listen to and report back on. This time around, we talk about a pair of albums from 1983 - Synchronicity by The Police and Eliminator by ZZ Top. What will The Man They Call Tim think of the synth-heavy direction that little ol' band from Texas took? How is Uncle Todd going to stand up to forty five minutes of smugness from Sting?

All of that plus a Week In Geek talking about chapter 4 of The Book Of Boba Fett, our reactions to the full Moon Knight trailer from Marvel, and we find out if Uncle Todd is ever gonna dig out of the hole he's in with Star Wars trivia in our Red Five segment.

Episode 83: For Harold - Ghostbusters Afterlife Review

December 13, 2021

If you've listened to any of our episodes before now, you probably saw this one coming... but we dove into Ghostbusters Afterlife feet-first and have lots to say about Jason Reitman's tribute to Harold Ramis, his father Ivan Reitman, a beloved movie from our childhood, and much more. Did we like it? Love it? Or are we jaunting off to Reno to elope with it? Find out! 

All that with some talk about fantasy football (sorry), thoughts on Hawkeye, and a nice little wrestling rant from The Man They Call Tim.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Accompanying reference material for The Man They Call Tim's WWE rant

- Uncle Todd said it was Cultaholic where he saw the wrestling video, but then later said it might've been What Culture, but then thought is was Cultaholic... but is now realizing it was indeed What Culture. We just wish he'd make up his bloody mind...

- Surprise, surprise... but Uncle Todd was also wrong about that Baskin Robbins flavor from Ghostbusters Afterlife being the same one as from Ant-Man.

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

The Man They Call Tim recommends listening to the new podcast from Guy Raz called Wisdom From The Top on NPR

Uncle Todd thinks watching the new Beatles documentary on Disney+ is a damn fine idea

Episode 82: Late 90‘s Showdown! - Album 1-on-1: Aerosmith vs. Stone Temple Pilots

December 2, 2021

Once again, the idiots have issued their album 1-on-1 challenge - to listen through an album of the other's choosing and report back with their findings. Will it be another lovefest or will reality intrude? It's anyone's guess with a couple of lesser-known albums from big-name bands - Aerosmith's Nine Lives and No. 4 from Stone Temple Pilots. 

All that with some talk about the latest Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer, casting news from Ahsoka, and what's in the oven for Thanksgiving.

 

LINKS OF INTEREST:

- Sabine Wren casting news from the upcoming Ahsoka series!

- Here's some info about Aerosmith's 1997 release, Nine Lives

- Here's the background on Stone Temple Pilot's 1999 album, No. 4

- Looks like Worf (or the chief security officer) would be fourth in command of the Enterprise on Star Trek: The Next Generation, thus making them "Number Four"

- No Uncle Todd, "Sour Girl" was not THE biggest single by STP - it was ONE of their biggest hits. It's right there in the above Wikipedia article

- Here's the video for "Sour Girl" starring Buffy... er... Sarah Michelle Gellar and Scott Weiland gyrating around without a shirt. As you did back in the late 90's.

- Here's the video for "Crazy" starring Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler, which manages to be creepier than STP's Teletubby-ish bunny rabbits because you have the daughter of the lead singer performing a striptease. Yikes.

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

The Man They Call Tim recommends watching Belfast from direction Kenneth Branagh in a theater near you

Uncle Todd thinks if you're thinking about hitting the gym, make an investment in yourself and hire a trainer

- Rest In Peace to Dean Stockwell

- That game where Steve Smith went off against Da Bears? Yeah, he was pretty good that day - 12 receptions for 218 yards and 2 touchdowns. What could make it worse? It was a playoff game. Anyways, here's some of Number 89's greatest games if you're in the mood for that sort of thing.

 

...AND ANOTHER THING:

The Man They Call Tim recommends watching LuLaRich on Amazon Prime - a documentary about the shady going-ons surrounding the LuLaRoe pyramid scheme.
