Tagged , , ,

What makes a superstar in professional?  Is it a huge finisher?  Is it the best tagline?

Well one of the things that is always memorable is a good old fashioned kick-ass theme song.

So the boys are going back in the ring to discuss themselves a little rasslin, but in this episode – it’s all about the music that makes the performer.

So if it comes crashing down and it hurts inside… you gotta take a stand, and ok, here we go!

We roll down stairs, roll better in pairs,
We’ve come to hijack your brain…

Whether it’s a slinky or a log, the boys are back and they brought alllll their toys with them, and unlike that little shit Denny across the street who’s parents got him the knock-off Gobots that don’t actually transform into anything, we’ve come to share!

So what were the things that you fondly remember as the toys of your youth? The dolls, figures, projects, and games that you occasionally see on listicles and go, ‘AWW MAN, I HAD THOSE!’ and then find out that the piece you remember fondly sticking up your nose is now worth a cool grand in mint condition.

So be careful not to step on a Lego…

102 – Starchaser: The Legend of Orin

Tagged , , , , ,

After 3 big episodes in a row, the boys are hanging back for a little and catching their breath.

What that means is you get to dive into one from the secret archives of the Somethings, where you get all new material, we did the same amount of work, but we did it before now! It’s amazing. It’s like magic.

I’ll tell you that the above sentence has more magic in it than this movie.

There are a lot of classic Star Wars rips, but Starchaser might be the most forgotten.. not because it is obscure or bad or an obvious cash-in… it’s because it is all three.

We promise, you don’t need to see the movie to enjoy this episode. Hell, you’ll likely enjoy the movie more if you don’t watch it.

Ready?

Ok, here we go!

And now for something a little different… and by different, we mean the same.. sort of.

The boys have been doing the show for just about 4 years, so why not take a look back with us. Hatton and Rob talk about how it began, and some of the adventures on the way.

And on that note, we just want to thank you for being with us on this adventure. Rob and I can’t tell you enough how it is you guys who have made this show what it is and drives it forward – so we look forward to our 4th Wild Pig Party as well as everything that is to come. Thanks.

We all like ourselves a little bit of television.

We also like ourselves the earworms that lodge into your head for 30 minutes and beyond. So Hatton’s taken a few. Rob’s taken a few. And they are going head to head to find out who has the best line-up.

♫ Here we are… born to cast pods… ♫

That’s right, it’s time for one of those shows that was inevitable. It’s Clan Hatton & Clan McRob as we talk about one of the most long-legged, long-lived, fantasy… sci-fi *sigh* series that defined many a’geek.

It’s Highlander time!

So grab your katana and beware the planet Zeist.. the boys are Gathering.

And if you worry about anything.. just realize.. it’s a kind of magic!

Episode 91 – MST3k

Tagged , , , , ,

♫ In the not too distant future…
On Thursday on Netflix…

The Mads are at it again! This time, they’ve taken the Somethings hostage and before they can be set free they have to review their favorite episodes of the B-Movie-Riffathon of MST3k!

Ok, so there are no Mad Scientists. There’s no SOL. There’s simply an episode of your favorite podcast. That doesn’t mean it isn’t a topic after their own heart, and with the new season coming out Thursday on Netflix, no better time to talk about it!

So repeat to yourself it’s just a show, and you should really just relax… unless you listen to us in your car. Then don’t relax, that would be horrible.

Episode 86 – The Crow

Tagged , , ,

Sometimes someone leaves this world with a mission still in their heart. Whether they were murdered or someone they loved needs vengeance – sometimes… just sometimes.. the spirit of the Crow summons them back to this world and acts as their totem to invincible power.  Unless you know magic. Or hurt the crow. Or are Satan. Or.. invent another rule.

That’s right – the boys are heading into the dark streets of the world of the gothy macabre and looking at the world of the Crow. We’ve watched all 4 movies (yes.. there are 4 of them) and ranked them from best to worst so that you didn’t have to even consider watching them.

It can’t rain all the time… I mean, it could, but then we would be watching Waterworld.
