Champs vs Stars: Stairing Down the Competition

We’re loosey-goosey in our coverage of Champs vs Stars. I mean, do we even talk about this episode? I’ve had too many beers to know I guess, but it’s nice to see some of the Champs return. We like the division of the Champs even more, and the teams within teams that we see. Stay tuned to our Facebook group since our schedule of coverage will change as we go.

Vendettas: Vendettas Never Die

We took a break because the finale was terrible. C’mon MTV, stop making us wait to see the winner of The Challenge, we just find spoilers anyway. Zach and Hillary are here to help host, and we cover the winner of Vendettas. Spoiler, it’s Cara Maria. We’re too nice to make you wait to know. It’s Cara. You go girl. We cover the finale and the reunion episodes in this super-special craziness.

The Midnight Drive-In: Commando & Cobra

We are looking at the two kings of 80’s action with Commando starring Schwarzenegger and then Cobra starring Stallone.  Which one has held up the best?  After that we talk about what else we’ve seen and end up talking some wrestling and specifically talking about attending wrestling shows back in the day.

The Midnight Drive-In: Frogs & Slugs

After a month of Critters and Leprechaun movies we decided maybe it was time for some nature fights back films.  First up is Sam Elliott as a photographer/nature specialist fighting mind controlling Frogs!  Then make sure you check your salad as we’ll be talking some mutant radioactive Slugs!  Also Bryan tells you about a tattoo dream he had that now has to become a reality, some films discussed are Ready Player One, The Night Visitor, and Game Over Man!

WWE WrestleMania 34 Predictions

It’s WrestleMania week and sure enough I’m still not hyped for Mania. Something about this years build isn’t getting my blood flowing like past years. Back in January when Shinsuke Nakamura won the Royal Rumble and announced he wanted to face AJ Styles I was onboard. But in the past few weeks Style was and or is injured and may miss his Mania match… And look at Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns story, the whole no show, showing up when your suspended and still get distorted, I’m not buying it. But it’s WrestleMania this Sunday and of course I’ll be watching it and like every year past, here are my predictions.

I do believe it’s time for Reigns to go over and win the WWE Universal Championship.

Cena will call out the Undertaker at Mania and they’ll have their match. Cena did a lot of trash talking in the lead up and it’s time for Undertaker to shut him up. Hopefully we see American Badass gimmick return.

Daniel Bryan announced his in ring return… Don’t see him losing at Mania. As for Ronda Rousey and Kurt Angle facing Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, I’m giving to the Authority. But we all know Rousey and Angle are going over… as for the other matches…

AJ Styles

Fin Balor

Bobby Roode

Nia Jax

Charlotte Flair

Braun Strowman

Vendettas: Czechmate

The remaining cast heads off to Prague to prepare for the finale. We see them dodge pylons and the stacked men’s team means we kick off some men in maybe unfair ways. The Troika is finally stacked with some females who save some men in a way you may not expect. We find out who the final 8 are that are heading to the final, but when is it and how long will it take? We’ll find out eventually.

One Last Trip To Toys “R” Us

I probably made my last trip to Toys “R” Us before they close down. As of writing this everything was 10-30% off. My main goal was WWE action figures and anything TRU Geoffrey related.

When I made it to the WWE figure aisle there wasn’t much, lots of empty pegs and SummerSlam two-packs featuring Ultimate Warrior & Honky Tonk Man. At this point, stop making Warrior figures. Save those figure slots for someone else. I did pick up a WrestleMania build up playset. It came with a basic Brock Lesnar figure which isn’t bad.

After about an hour searching the store for Geoffrey stuff I finally ask for help. Talked to one guy about plushies or Pop! figures and he said, the Pop! figs went fast and as for plushies, we don’t have any. He added, everyone has been coming in asking if we have that type of stuff since we are closing. He built it up as nostalgia.

I spent a couple hours in TRU taking pictures, SnapChatting, and giving play by play to Sometimes Mike about my adventure. So as I walked to the counter to checkout I spotted a row of Geoffrey gift card plushies, jackpot! I ask the lady behind the counter, those for sale? Yes they are… Give me two! And I got’em. I saved a couple dollars noting outrageous. The cashier said, the big sales will take place closer they get to closing the store.

The atmosphere wasn’t all that chipper. Sure I got the, hello when I walked in but it was kinda a ghost town. Saw maybe six customers and four employees. What I remembered the most is how hot it was in there. I’m guessing they shutoff the AC to save some cash… It’s sad seeing a store that’s been there for ages just closing and trying to get rid of everything. I remember going to TRU as a kid looking for wrestling figures and I’m still going to TRU looking for said action toys!

The Midnight Drive-In: Critters 4 & Leprechaun 4

We decided to do something a little different this week and we went with some sci-fi films set IN SPAAAAAAACE!  We’ll be talking Critters 4 and Leprechaun 4.  On top of that we chat about Jessica Jones, The Gate, Brawl In Cell Block 99 (yes again), Psycho, and Blood Feast.

Living the #FigLife Top 5 Random Action Figures

These figures are some of my favorites that’s not wrestling, Star Wars, or Ghostbusters. Being a collector and one time owner of many action figures from the 80’s and 90’s I bought and received a lot of random stuff.

5. Streex (Street Sharks)

I remember watching the cartoon and thinking, if the sharks met the turtles that would be a match. I remember getting Streex one random day after getting out from school. The figure was huge and a bit blocky, the shark did stake but the gimmick was the rubber head and fin so you could make a chomping action. This figure grew old fast with limited play. It needed more articulation.

4. Vinnie (Biker Mice from Mars)

Another one-off figure I bought because of the cartoon. Vinnie was the only figure I collected from the series. He looked cool and always liked the Terminator/Phantom half mask.

3. Aracula (Skeleton Warriors)

I got this figure without watching the cartoon first. Honestly, who needed a cartoon storyline. These figures on their own are awesome. Aracula was the only one I had but got a lot of use out of it. A six armed skeleton was something I never seen before. He faced the Ninja Turtles many of times. And when I see Skeleton Warriors I always think of the Ray Harryhausen movies.2. Armadon (Primal Rage)

To this day I still play the video game but at the time finding any kind of video game action figures hanging on pegs was a must buy. This is one fig I wish I still had, Armadon was used as a villain for Ghostbusters and Godzilla.1. Dracula (Monster Force)

I don’t remember watching Monster Force, but do remember the figures. I had Dracula, he was basic, good look to him. I wish I had other figures from the series to make my own monster mash.

There you have it, another top five. But this time it took me awhile to figure out what action figure made the list.

Donald Trump (and maybe also Cambridge Analytica) have ruined Facebook.

We always knew that Facebook wasn’t the product. We were. Our information is used for advertisements, but maybe it’s also a bit more nefarious than that. With a relatively small pool of paid participants, Cambridge Analytica managed to get the data of 50 million Facebook users and used that information for extremely targeted, and false, advertisements which may have swayed the 2016 election. Facebook denies it impacted votes, but isn’t this a strange argument to make while trying to sell advertisements on the site? Either way, Facebook is bad and it’s Donald Trump’s fault.

Graveyard Duck Episode 25 – Super Mario Bros 2

What more do we need to say? We’re talking about Super Mario Bros 2. Of course you should listen.

Vendettas: Help Me Rhonda

We’re winding down in the season now, so the game is heating up. We see some Challengers stabbing each other in the back, others sticking with their alliances even though it means they’ll get thrown in. 2 people head home and the rest go to the Czech Republic, although we don’t know who until next week.

The Midnight Drive-In: Critters 3 & Leprechaun 3

To celebrate the work of Christina Criswell we decided to check out the movies Critters 3 and Leprechaun 3.  That make up . . .  We end up enjoying one of the movies immensely and the other just so/so.  After that we chat about Fargo, The Poughkipsee Tapes, Veronica, and The Strangers: Prey At Night.  Enjoy!

Is a Blue Wave approaching? Democrats may be poised to start winning. Hopefully.

I cannot believe I was on the edge of my seat watching a special election in Pennsylvania for an office that will only be held temporarily due to drawing new district lines. Despite all the GOP support, Trump’s campaigning, and millions in opposition, a Democrat beat the odds to win this deep-red district that Trump took by 20 points just 1 year ago. What does this mean for the future of the Democratic party and this rumored Blue Wave? We have no idea frankly, but it is fun to speculate.
