The thing about being a total geek about ska is, is that you love it all. You may start out loving ska/punk, or a more traditional ska sound, but soon enough, if you hold on to the open mind that got you into ska in the first place, you find all kinds of musical ska treasures. Ska is just a beat that can worm its way into any genre of music and a lot can be done with it. This episode of 23min of Ska is a celebration of that malleability.
Welcome to Hero Unabridged, a podcast dedicated to creating an issue by issue history of our favorite comic book characters.

Available soon on iTunes and Stitcher!
Look who’s bringing the ska/punk for the holidays! I’ve been putting out this show for a few years, but I never make the Christmas episode a Christmas episode. Too cliche. Also, I avoid ska puns for the same reason. I hope this episode is a nice respite from all the audio treacle we’ve all been having to endure lately.
This week, on a very special episode of The Last Horrorcast, we discuss a couple of films that were supposed to be fun filled 70s slashers, but instead the conversation takes a much, much darker turn. Tune in for what may be our most serious and thoughtful discussion to date.
Then in the sidebar, we lighten things up a bit by discussing a few recent watches, talk about Christmas films, celebrities and conventions, and much more.

Woah! Lots of new ska on this episode! Heck, some of these songs JUST came out! (I mean, except that Kill Lincoln track, that one’s about 5 yrs old) The one comment I get from people when they find out I do a ska podcast, or that I’m into ska in general, is “ska is still a thing?” As much as I want to lecture them on the long history of ska I just say “Yep!” And when listening to bands such as these put out music so recently that is so good, well, ska is going to be a thing for quite awhile! We’ve got a handful of artists from the US, a few from the UK and heck, we even have one from Bulgaria! Dig that international ska, baby!

I was lucky enough to be on the Talk Without Rhythm podcast to talk about 2 Michael Mann films Thief and Collateral. Stop in and take a listen.
This week on the Talk Without RhythmPodcast I’m joined by my buddy Bryan of The Last Horrorcast and Geek Nerdery for a truly Mannly double-feature of Michael Mann movies. We’re discussing how the best laid plans of professionals and psychopaths so often go awry with 1981’s Thief and 2004’s Collateral.
Join us as we discuss a couple of cheesy 80s slashers featuring pranks gone wrong, Terror Train [spoilers from 41:22-52:11] and Slaughter High. Warning: if you were a nerd in school who was promised sex by the popular kids and they instead pulled a prank at your expense, don’t listen. We don’t want to give you any ideas.
Anyone who knows me knows I started my podcasting days on a video podcast called Horror Junk. Well November marked the 10th Anniversary of the first episode so we decided to get together and do a fun episode to mark the ocassion. So for the first time ever all three hosts of Horror Junk sit down to review a ultra low budget horror film in old Horror Junk fashion. Enjoy.
Just a Drunken Zombie begat Geek Nerdery, Horror Junk begat Drunken Zombie. I think I’m using ‘begat’ properly there in that context.
10 years ago, 2 guys in their 20’s sat down, drank too many beers and discussed horror movies in front of a camera. The movie was then shared via YouTube and as a video podcast. It was popular for it’s time and a ton of fun to make.
As part of our 10-year-anniversary, here’s our very first episode.
The audio episodes were almost lost forever, but I managed to find most of them. If you’re feeling a bit nostalgic like myself and want to hear a hybrid of Horror Junk and Drunken Zombie, check out this episode.
For the others that I managed to recover, go ahead and grab them here.
Hold on tight for another Horror Junk surprise, coming soon.
It’s time to once again make ourselves feel dirty and ashamed of society as we look at the first three episodes of Black Mirror season 3. Join us as talk about the value of social popularity, spiders with human faces, and whether video yoga makes one sexy or not.
Happy Halloween to every one out there is podcast land. This week, your hosts would like to present you with something a little different. Rather than listen to Scott, Doug, and Bryan drone on about a couple of movies for two hours without making any sense, this episode they only drone on about one. Presenting the Night of the Living Dead commentary track. Enjoy!
This week we revisit the films of Rob Zombie and take a look at The Haunted World of El Superbeasto and the new theatrical release 31 [spoilers from 1:07:35 – 1:19:35]. Come find out if you should head to the theaters and spend your money or not.
Doug and Bryan are on their own this week, as they try to cobble together some intelligent thoughts on two of the most messed up movies we’ve tried to review on the show, the 1977 Japanese film Hausu and 2015’s Turkish film, Baskin. Despite the challenge, they do a good job.
This week we take a look at two different sequels to the 1979 classic, Alien. Yes you read that right. We discuss the well known official sequel, Aliens as well as the 1980 unofficial “sequel” Alien 2: On Earth.
We also discuss clowns, Luke Cage, and Steak n’ Shake.
This week we take a look at a couple of films that have two things in common. One, they both have the same title and two, they both feature “legendary” stars. First is the 1953 House of Wax starring the one and only Vincent Price. Then, we watch a movie in which Paris Hilton takes a pole to the face. (No, not that one.)
In anticipation of the upcoming HBO series, we decided to take a break from horror and check out the 70s sci-fi flicks Westworld and Futureworld. (Picture Jurassic Park with robot cowboys.) We also give our thoughts on a couple of Westworld T.V. promos, 80s cartoons, Extrodinary Tales, and Doug tries to talk us into having a Montreal Screwjob with him.
Time to kick back with a couple of indie picks this week. We start by looking at 2002’s May, starring Angela Bettis and directed by Lucky McKee. Then we switch roles and discuss 2006’s Roman, starring Lucky McKee and directed by Angela Bettis. Spoiler alert. This may be one our most divisive reviews yet.
After the break we cover off some random fun. We listen to feedback, give some nicknames to listeners, and Doug switches from beer to rum.
