Final Reckoning: You’re the Worst

Drama drama everywhere. This episode draws some lines in the sand between Challengers we like and Challengers we can barely tolerate. The eating challenge ends in a predictable way, and a pair end up in Redemption to make amends. That goes about as well as you’d expect it to go in a reality show fueled by booze and anger. Back in the main house, we see other fights, more drama and more people who we’ve decided to hate. No nominations, no voting and of course no eliminations this episode. C’mon MTV.

The Midnight Drive-In: Slater September! Heathers & Sorority Row

It’s that time of year again.  The leaves are turning.  A small chill is in the air. It must be time to go back to school!  Luckily that falls during Slater September so we can celebrate with the Christian Slater classic Heathers!  After that we head to college to see what devious pranks befall the girls in Sorority Row.  Also Noah talks about his cat, Doug talks some Iron Fist, and Bryan goes back to the Summer of ’84!

Graveyard Duck Episode 37 – The NES in 1987

What a difference a year makes. 1986 may have been a bit of a let down for the NES, but 1987 more than makes up for it. This week Scott and Wes discuss 1987 and what it meant for the NES while spotlighting a couple of our favorite, overlooked titles.

Final Reckoning: Redemption House of Cards

*ch ch* REDEMPTION HOUSE. This week is all about the Redemption House and the Apocalypse that actually sends people home for once! CT tries his best to stay in the game, but maybe not as hard as Derrick tries. At this stage in the game, I guess you have to give it your best shot to stay in. They’re battling for a million bucks after all. *ch ch* MAIN HOUSE. No real elimination from the main house so it’s a bit laid back, but we end the episode with an eating challenge which is our favorite. Lots of puking and lots of fun! We go way off topic this week, which once guy on iTunes hates. So it goes.

The Boise Brothers starring Abram and Mike: A break from Challenged

We interrupt this regular podcast feed for an episode of Couch Pilots! Wolfie and Tim join the flight as the regular pilots review Boise Brothers, a failed pilot put together by Challenge contestants Abram and Mike to hopefully sell MTV on a reality show. The pilot failed, obviously, but that doesn’t stop us from talking about it. For more details or to subscribe to Couch Pilots, head on over to their website, http://couchpilotspodcast.libsyn.com/.

The Midnight Drive-In: Slater September! Twilight Zone The Movie & Tales From The Darkside The Movie

Week 2 of Slater September is here.  First up is the movie take on some classic episodes of The Twilight Zone.  We chat about some of our favorite episodes and also talk the big controversy with the film.  After that Christian Slater appears in Tales From The Darkside The Movie to chop up some mummies.  Sit back and enjoy some classic horror anthologies.

Final Reckoning: Bro-ing Pains

It’s guy’s night, so grab your whiskey and cowboy hat and leave the women at home. We’re super efficient as we recap this episode but still cover a lot of ground. A nomination, a desperate Banana, a crazy elimination and a dramatic re-enactment of Paulie’s tweets that will hopefully make you hate him more than you already do. Also, how about a little back story on that Semester at Sea sweatshirt this episode? C’mon MTV, you can do better.

The Midnight Drive-In: SLATER SEPTEMBER! Gleaming The Cube & Airborne

We kick off Slater September with his skateboarding classic Gleaming The Cube.  We then follow that up with one of Bryan’s favorite rollerblading movies from the 90’s Airborne.  Also some discussions of hating a ringing cell phone, Friends, and Jessica Jones.

Graveyard Duck Episode 36 – The NES in 1986

Final Reckoning: Shaneless

Eight episodes in and I have a very important question: Will anyone ever be sent home? The mercenaries play for a spot in the house, but let’s be honest… they’re getting into the game either way because if they lose, it’s Redemption House time. We see Kyle slutting it up, drama at a winery, drama in a bus, drama at home, and a salad bowl with lasers shooting out of it. Shane has a strategy in the rugby game, but will it work and is it worth it?

The Midnight Drive-In: The Last Shark & Jaws 5 (Cruel Jaws)

It’s shark week here at the drive in.  First we’ll be taking a look at The Last Shark which pretty much steals most of it’s story from Jaws.  Then after that we’ll be looking at Jaws 5 (aka Cruel Jaws) which literally steals everything from The Last Shark.  After that we talk some more shark movies, Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, and Bryan reveals a theme month not to be missed starting next episode.

Final Reckoning: Big Little Lies

Killer Queen Kam is the lady with the plan in this episode, but c’mon MTV, are you ever gonna send anyone home? We see the Challengers dig out of a mine, a relationship between Tori and Derrick comes to a head, and Brad finally blinks. All this and more on this wonderful edition of Challenged.

The Road To Geek’d Con (2018)

This past weekend I attended my very first convention, Geek’d Con. For years I’ve heard stories from the Drunken Zombie crew about their adventures. Now I’ve experienced what they been talking about for years…

Leading up to this trip I had a couple goals in mind. One – Marvel Legends, I’ve built an army of figures and still looking for more. Two – video game or comic art to hang on my wall. Those two goals were accomplished quickly and that gave me time to walk the floor. But Doiner! What about meeting celebrities and such. To be honest, not the best lineup of guest for myself. Sure Mick Foley will be there but I can care less about the guy who voiced Jack Skellington. It wasn’t until Brian Knobbs was announced I thought about standing in line for a meet and greet.

Friday was a lot of driving and storytelling. It wasn’t until we stopped getting cell services when the real fun took play. But those stories are for a private conversation, if you will. When you have three big guys who skipped breakfast, lunch became an event or as the people at the Keachie Kountry Store will say, legend. You see… Three guys from the beach in the backwoods of Louisiana. One with a backwards cap, another with a CBT shirt and a guy wearing a Houston Texans cap. I’ve seen a lot of horror movies, I know what comes next… We walked in to a half store half dive and not talking about like the ones you see on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. This place was spooky at times but the wait staff and food was excellent. We chatted with everyone about Geek’d Con and who’s going to be there. After we made friends with the townsfolk we were one step closer to getting to Shreveport.

The first thing we did when we got to Shreveport was check into our motel at the Red Roof Inn and when I say this place was bad it makes the Bates Motel look five stars. Here’s the rundown… My original room was trashed beds flipped, chairs turned over, I got out of there quick. So I was put in another room and this time no running water for an hour. Next thing I knew Rafael switched rooms because of the water being off, wasn’t just me. After getting settled in and disinfecting the joint I found a couple treasures. A pair of socks and ten cents. Oh! And to lock your rooms door, I had to lift the door up and lock it at the same time…

I took security measures for my safety.

That evening we met up with a few more friends and hit up a casino. Good thing Raf and I brought our suits. Because we were limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ n’ dealin’ all night long. We left the ladies wanting more, WOO! After a few hours of gambling and earning we hit up the Con for a few hours. I made my rounds, found enough Marvel Legends to hold me over. I got the layout of the joint and I was ready for Saturday…

Saturday… Morning, wake up call, Rafael… Get up, get ready. With Roddy Piper’s theme blaring in my hotel room it was time to put on the kilt and jacket. I was ready. Waiting for the doors to open I spotted a few marks and we gave each other Too Sweets or a head nod. Once in I split from the pack to search for more Marvel Legends and this time… Jackpot! MCU War Machine, Ragnarok Thor all on the cheap, but to the guy who wanted $50 for Cyclops or Rogue… Take your internet prices somewhere else.

While walking around taking in everyone’s awesome costumes I got a phone call from Rafael saying Brian Knobbs didn’t have a long line if I wanted a picture. I made my way down there and sure enough, no one! Walked up got a picture autograph combo and he told me a Shawn Michaels story. Good times.

I may get heat for this, looking at you Patterson! But Constantine (2005) is a good movie by my standards. Another person I got the picture autograph combo treatment was from Pruitt Taylor Vince. He played Father Hennessy. Such a nice guy, told story after story. Nicest guy ever… I was informed that different panels were taking place and John Wesley Shipp (The Flash) was coming up soon. After the meet and greets I went back on the hunt for more Marvel Legends and every time I walk past a booth I been to someone was restocking more Legends. So I found my last ML for the day, the variant purple hair Psylocke.

I finally made it to John Wesley Shipp’s panel talk, I was late but I made it. After food and regrouping with everyone and agreeing to see Helen Slater talk about her film career and staying for a viewing of Supergirl (1984) I needed to find something to hang on my wall and wow did I find something cool. I stopped by The Pixelized Princess booth and they had 8-bit bead art but placed said characters on paintings. Great idea! Got myself a Friday the 13th picture. It’s awesome!

At this point the Con had about four or five hours left before closing for the night and I decided I wanted a picture autograph combo with Mick Foley if his line wasn’t long. Yes, I’m a mark and I’m not a huge Foley fan but I liked his early Mankind gimmick. When I got there the line was short about six people and a couple came in right after me. While waiting a announcement was made, once everyone in this line has met Mick Foley he’s taking a break. That’s when they closed the line.

I finally made it to Foley, got to chat with him about his WCW run and facing Vader. Nice guy, what else is there to say. Around the same time I had to make it to Helen Slater’s panel talk, got there took a seat and she talked about Supergirl. Keep in mind I never seen the Supergirl movie. Q&A with the audience and a few questions about The Legend of Billie Jean were ask, I was happy about that.

Now it was time for the movie… Rafael, Dustin, and I was set and ready… AND… What an awful movie. If I would’ve gotten an autograph from Helen Slater I would have given it back to her and tell her to keep the money, I don’t want a refund. My time watching this movie was spent texting Patterson! and play by play commentary with Rafael. The scene with the front end loader was ridiculous. A giant tire falls, Lucy Lane gets knocked out, Jimmy Olsen never takes pictures to document the damage and so forth. And when ask if she had a transcript, she types one up herself. Who gave her the knowledge that she needed one. And how does she phase in and out of her school uniform. This movie makes no sense. At this point I was so bored I started reading the Geek’d Con program. I had more fun talking about roundabouts or how people bust their belt when all they’re doing is sitting in a chair watching a movie… Looking at you Rafael.

Once the movie was over I first out and never watching this awful movie again, I mean there wasn’t even an end credits scene. How lame is that.

Sunday morning it was time to head home, what a weekend it’s been. Would I do it all over again, I would because I had so much fun. Nothing like hanging with friends and laughing in a place where everyone enjoys the same entertainment as you do. Before we made it home we stopped back in that half store half dive to see what everyone was up too but the morning staff was working…

We made it home and here I am writing this, documenting my first convention. I had a blast and hopefully do it all again next year… Visit Doiner.com for pictures of Geek’d Con 2018.

The Midnight Drive-In: Lord Of The Rings (1978) & Wizards

This week Noah talked us into watching some Ralph Bakshi movies so we’re kicking things off with the 1978 animated version of Lord Of The Rings and then following that up with Bakshi’s look at a war torn future Apocalypse with Wizards.  On top of that Bryan and Doug get excited over the Young Guns movies, we plan out an entire Christian Slater Month, and Bryan gets confused as to why the Lord Of The Rings movie ends so abruptly.

Final Reckoning: A Series of Unfortunate Events

We’re not thrilled about the pace of this season, but we’ll keep bringing you the latest ’cause we love you. Too much drama up in here, too many relationships to follow, and too many people throwing hissy fits. But it’s ok. We see a challenge on a train, we see Brad throw fits, Cara throw fits, Kyle throw fits, Shane throw fits… Are we seeing a pattern. Also, some roosters invade the hen house. All this and more on this amazing episode of Challenged.

Graveyard Duck Episode 35 – The NES in 1985

This week we’re trying something a little different. Rather than spotlight a specific game, we’ve decided to spotlight an entire year.

We discuss the history and mention a few of the big titles of the year, but focus mainly on a couple of underrated and possibly overlooked titles.

Final Reckoning: Breaking Brad

Poor Brad deals with the bad news from the Redemption House, while the rest of the Challengers prepare for a Purge Challenge. We get relationship drama we don’t care about, team drama we’re too old for, and reminisce of the days when we used to get a challenge and an elimination in one week.

This week we’re doing a kids night and showing some cartoon movies from our childhoods in the form of 1986’s Transformers The Movie and then following that up with 1987’s G.I. Joe The Movie.  Just remember that “You got the touch, you got the power!”  Yo Joe.
