Day 4 of the 12 Days of Adulting

On Day Four of the 12 Days, the boys bring on Steven's long time best friend Adam to play a Holiday Edition of Rad Libs for the famous song "Grandma got ran over by a reindeer." You've got to hear what crazy song they came up with. Use the template to play along with your friends and family!

Day 1 of the 12 Days of Adulting

Today marks the first day of the 12 Days of Adulting where we count down the 12 days leading to the New Year. Josh Hallmark of Podcasts such as "Our Americana", "The Karen and Ellen Letters", "Playlist", and probably a thousand more. This episode we kick off with another deep dive into the Cinema world where the guys look at some of the weirdest Christmas movies that exist.

1) Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny (1972)

Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 3.38.16 PM.png

Poor Santa Claus. This live-action feature finds his sleigh stuck in the sand on a Florida beach only days before Christmas Eve. He psychically summons prepubescent aid from a nearby subdivision. In order to extricate Santa's sleigh, the local children bring many different animals (presumably the sheep was someone's housepet), but nothing works, and the kids are afraid they won't get any gifts this year. To boost their spirits, Santa tells them the story of Thumbelina, and the setting dissolves into a "fantasy within a fantasy". Thumbellina is a beautiful but very tiny girl, "not much larger than a clothespin". She becomes lost in the forest during the winter and finds refuge in the underground home of Mrs. Mole. A neighbor mole, Mr. Digger, falls in love and wants to marry Thumbelina, but she's having none of it. When warm weather returns, she runs back into the forest and deserts the two kindly creatures who saved her life, crushing their spirits forever ... the end. As Santa is finishing his story and yes, that is its intended conclusion he and the children hear the wail of a siren. The "Ice Cream Bunny" has arrived in his antique fire engine to save the day!

Rotten Tomatoes Score: 10% 

2) Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (1964)

Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 3.37.17 PM.png

Martians, upset that their children have become obsessed with TV shows from Earth which extol the virtues of Santa Claus, start an expedition to Earth to kidnap the one and only Santa. While on Earth, they kidnap two lively children that lead the group of Martians to the North Pole and Santa. The Martians then take Santa and the two children back to Mars with them. Voldar, a particularly grumpy Martian, attempts to do away with the children and Santa before they get to Mars, but their leader Lomas stops him. When they arrive on Mars, Santa, with the help of the two Earth children and a rather simple-minded Martian lackey, overcomes the Martians by bringing fun, happiness and Christmas cheer to the children of Mars.


Rotten Tomatoes Score: 24%

3) Santa Claus (1959)

1df2df1ee10aba13b76c49aded63e002.jpg

Santa Claus, high above the North Pole in his cloud-borne castle equipped with more surveillance devices than the Impossible Mission Force, prepares to deliver presents on Christmas night. Santa is especially interested in helping Lupita, the daughter of a poor family who wants nothing more than a doll; and a young boy whose parents are so wealthy they never spend any time with him (Santa fixes this by feeding them Pan-Galactic Gargle Blasters). However, the Devil will have none of this and sends his minion, Pitch, to foil Santa's plans. Pitch, in turn, recruits three Naughty Boys to help him set traps for Santa.

Episode 34: All Horses are Good People

This week the guys play a new game called "Lost in Translation" where Chris takes popular quotes, lyrics, etc. from across pop culture and runs it through Google Translate a few dozen times before translating it back to English. Then Steven is faced with a decision to figure out where did it originate?

Here's this week's translations:

1) Category: Song Lyrics

 “The man drink the sea, he drinks water”

  1. Country Hit, “Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On”

  2. 90s powerhouse, “No Scrubs”

  3. One Hit Wonder, “Tubthumping”

Translation:

I hit, but I'll be back
I do not want to do it
I hit, but I'll be back
I do not want to do it
I hit, but I'll be back
I do not want to do it
I hit, but I'll be back
I do not want to do it

The man drink the sea, drink water
He is a good song to remember
He is the song that reminds him
(Danny Boy, Danny Boy, Danny Boy)

2) Category: Movie Quote

“You do not know how life looks like a chocolate box”

  1. The powerful courtroom scene in “A few Good Men”

Chubby falls.
All horses are good people
It can not stop again.

4) Category: Song Lyric

“I love you when it comes with a big doll"

  1. The pop smash, “This Love” by Maroon 5

  2. The song that sounds like every other one of their songs, “Far Away” by Nickelback

  3. The pandering for love hit, “Big Poppa” by Notorious B.I.G.

Translation:

"I love you when it comes with a big doll"
When you play, put your
hands on the air
"I love you when I call"
Goodbye seems like your swimming pool
"I love you when it comes with a big doll"
If you have an army, you
can not open (what is it?)
"After looking for women today, I have to be my son"

Episode 33: I Will Vacuum Well (with Special Guest Eric Garner)

This weeks the guys are joined from their Canadian brother Eric Garner from the "Know Nothing Podcast" for another installment of Rad Libs. Play along with your friends!

 

I Will Survive

At first, I was afraid, I was (a strongly felt emotion)

Kept thinking, I could never (something you do every day) without you by my side

But then I spent so many nights thinking, how you (an unforgivable act)

And I grew (a character trait you have) and I learned how to (a skill you’d like to learn)

And so you're back from (a location)

I just (verb ending in “ed”) in to find you here with that (emotion) look upon your face

I should have changed that (an elementary school insult) lock

I should have made you leave your (something embarrassing to leave at an ex’s place)

If I'd known for just (an amount of time) you'd be back to bother me

Go on now, go, (a type of movement) out the door, just turn around now

'Cause you're not (a way you might describe your lover) anymore

Weren't you the one, who tried to (a way you’d try and to hurt someone) me with (a household item)?

Did you think I'd crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and (something inappropriate to do at work)?

 

Oh, no, not I, I will (an action you wish you could do)

Oh, as long as I know how to (a universal skill), I know I'll stay alive

I've got all my life to live, I've got all my (collectable item) to give

And I'll (something a loved one would do that you’d be proud of), I will (something a loved one would do that you’d be proud of), hey, hey

Episode 32: Escape the Womb

The guys play another game of "News or False" and Steven has to try and figure out which ones are really happening around the world in the News.

1) The Latest Fitness Craze Hitting the Streets? Look no further than Goat Yoga

  • TRUE!

2) Pumpkin Spice: The Deadliest spice of them all

Episode 31: Three-Way Super Like (with Special Guest Nate Hale)

The guys are joined by Nate Hale from The Conspirators Podcast for a Spooky good time!

Hocus Pocus or Hocus Bogus

1) Creepshow 3 (2007): A sequel to 1982 and 1987’s Creepshow Films

Abandoning the horror comic book framework that linked the stories in Romero’s original, Creepshow 3 takes the annoying tactic of unskillfully borrowing from the films of Quentin Tarantino, where characters from different segments randomly collide throughout the film.

The vignettes (which include stories about a remote control that can change your ethnicity, and a radio that commands listeners to murder) lack inspiration, and the effects aren’t very special. Adding insult to injury, Creepshow 3 has been deemed unofficial, with fans of the original choosing to believe makeup artist Tom Savini’s assertion that 1990’s Tales from the Darkside: The Movie was meant to the be the official third film in the Creepshow franchise.

Rotten Tomatoes-0%

2) The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and became Mixed Up Zombies (1964):

The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies is as bewildering as its title. Billed as the “first monster musical,” the movie stars Ray Dennis Steckler (who also directs) as Jerry, a ne’er-do-well who attends a carnival with his girlfriend Angela (Sharon Walsh) and indescribable friend Harold (Atlas King).

What should be a care-free day at the park turns into a nightmare after Jerry visits the villainous psychic Estrella (Brett O’Hara), who hypnotizes him and turns him into a murderous zombie that attacks carnival attendees with psychotic glee. To make matters worse, Estrella and her goons are turning other carnival-goers into zombies after hurling acid in their faces.

Keep in mind all these bizarre antics are often interrupted by shoehorned musical performances featuring ungraceful dancers and tone-deaf vocalists.

Rotten Tomatoes-20%

3) Evilspeak (1981): 

Clint Howard is a bullied social outcast who uses his satanic computer to get revenge on his classmates. You know the computer has the Devil in it because it flashes a glowing blood-red pentagram at him and inspires him to commit himself to the dark lord. Puppies are killed in the process. It’s part of a long and dorky tradition of horror movies that are really about the fear of a nascent technology (or whatever all the kids happen to be into at that moment in the culture).

Rotten Tomatoes-43%

evilspeak.jpg

4) Maximum Overdrive (1986)- 

After a stray comet causes a radiation storm, the citizens of North Carolina are besieged by machines that turn against them. The most deadly instruments are big rig trucks that go on a killing spree. It’s up to a group of survivors (led by a truck-stop diner cook played by Emilio Estevez) to stop their mechanized reign of terror.

Maximum Overdrive is absolutely bonkers, with enough elements of black comedy to infer that King wasn’t out to make a serious film, which adds to its junk-food appeal. But the poor critical reviews and box office made him vow never to direct again (a number of on-set accidents that led to a lawsuit probably helped his decision).

Rotten Tomatoes- 17%

maximum overdrive.jpg

5) Creature (2011)-

Creature (or as I like to call it, "pornography with a monster") is about a bunch of college students who come to a town because of a legend about this creature who used to be a regular guy then transformed into a crocodile/human monster. Ladies and gentlemen, this movie is TERRIBLE! It's pure bad from beginning to end.

How are the monster effects? Terrible. How is the acting? Terrible. How is it written? I think a drunken ape with a pen and paper could have written a better script. Is it scary? No. Is it fun like Evil Dead 2? Nope. It's just an awful movie that I cannot believe made it into theaters.

Rotten Tomatoes- 11%

Creature_poster.jpg

6) The Boy (2016): 
A young American woman (The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan) takes a job as a nanny at a remote, English stately home to look after a suspiciously elderly couple’s eight-year-old son, Brahms. The ‘son’ naturally turns out to be a porcelain doll, the real Brahms having died in a fire years earlier.

Spooky stuff starts happening when the doll starts moving around by himself alongside a daft romantic subplot with a flirty grocery boy and plenty of schlocky twists. Unluckily for us, The Boy’s predictable ending leaves the movie wide open for an equally bad sequel too. Please no.

Rotten Tomatoes-27%

TheBoy_2016-OfficialPoster.jpg

7) The Disappointments Room (2016): 

The Disappointments Room stars Kate Beckinsale as Dana who moves with her husband and young son into a spooky old house following the tragic death of the couple’s infant daughter.

Dana discovers her new house is home to a ‘disappointments room’, a place where the intolerant folk of the olden days would hide away children with disabilities from the rest of the world, and is haunted by the spirit of one of its former inhabitants. Now, horror isn’t exactly the most light-hearted of genres but a movie with a grieving mother and the ghost of a neglected child is grim even for horror.

Beyond its upsetting plot, the film is as much of a disappointment as its title would suggest. Not only did it get a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, it also flopped massively at the box office recouping just $2.4 million of its $15 million budget.

Episode 29: WHO WAS PHONE? (with Special Guests History Goes Bump)

1. Killdozer! (1974)- A film about a possessed bulldozer that goes on a killing spree

This one never hit theaters; it was made for ABC Television. But its cult reveres it mostly because of its idiotic premise (and admittedly amazing title, complete with superfluous exclamation point). And what a Grade A idiot premise it is: a meteorite with strange powers lands on Earth. When a work crew tries to move it with a bulldozer, the heavy shoveling equipment is possessed by the alien boulder’s power and goes on a killing rampage. And then it just dissipates. Biggest disappointment: thanks to its TV movie status there was never a cool poster created to trumpet its arrival on the junk culture scrapheap.

unnamed-2.jpg

2. Happy Birthday to Me! (1981)- A film revolving around killings taking place on the birthday of the main character, specifically at their party

In the creative aftermath of “Black Christmas,” “Halloween,” and “Friday the 13th,” the 1980s turned into a muddy cesspool of slash-alike calendar-centric movies. “Graduation Day,” “My Bloody Valentine” and others painted by the numbers and sent a stream of murdered teen bodies down the multiplex conveyor belt. This one barely accomplished even that goal, loosely tying stalker-style murders around the birthday of “Little House on The Prairie” star Melissa Sue Anderson. In fact, it appears that the entire film’s reason to exist is to deliver the kabob-skewering-a-face murder depicted on the gruesome poster. Worse, they convinced aging screen legend Glenn Ford to be in it.

27% on Rotten Tomatoes

3. Trick or Treat (1986)- The soul of a famous rockstar is trapped in his unreleased record urging a teen to kill

In the 1980s, “satanic panic” was all the rage, and an especially loopy strain of it existed in the form of preachers holding seminars on the perils of heavy metal, particularly if played backwards on turntables. Hence this story about a teenage metalhead (Marc Price, Skippy from “Family Ties”) whose favorite rock star dies in a mysterious fire. The only copy of his new, unreleased record, however, contains his spirit. When played backwards, the rocker helps his teen fan to get revenge on bullies. But when the evil rocker suggests murder, it’s up to our hero to smash any electronic equipment that would convey the message. Finally the mean music man is lured into a cassette tape and destroyed. Best (worst) of all, this one tried to have its devil’s-food cake and it eat it too by casting Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne, two men whose acting talents are inversely proportional to their music-making skills.

71% on Rotten Tomatoes

unnamed-4.jpg

4. Blood Freak (1972)- A film in which a man working on a poultry farm turn into a murderous turkey man and feasts on the blood of others.

Doubling as a film perfect to watch on Halloween and Thanksgiving, Blood Freak is a true oddity– a horror film that also doubles as an anti-drug PSA… that makes you feel like you’re on drugs. Herschell (Steve Hawkes) is a Vietnam Vet (and Elvis lookalike) whose world turns around after he meets Angel (Heather Hughes). While she is as pious and religious as her namesake suggests, he takes a turn for the worse after falling for her drug-addicted sister (Dana Cullivan).

Soon he’s also hooked, and turns to a turkey farm job to fund his habit. But his problems only escalate when he’s asked to eat some lab-grown fowl that turn him into a murderous man-turkey who has a new kind of drug habit: drinking the blood of junkies.

Blood Freak is one trippy flick, with bad editing and awkward performances only adding to the disorienting plot. Even more quizzical is the addition of an onscreen narrator (director Brad F. Grinter), who acts like a poor man’s Rod Serling, so prone to chain-smoking that he actually coughs on camera

unnamed-5.jpg

5. Gingerdead Man (2005)- A film about a murderous Gingerbread man

Serial killer Millard Findlemeyer is executed for his crimes. His ashes are given to his mother, and she mixes them into gingerbread spice mix, and then gives it to a local bakery. By the way, Millard's mother is a witch. The bakery uses the concoction (and adds some accidental employee blood, because it is a terrible, disgusting bakery) to make a large gingerbread man that comes to life and begins killing people.


It's ridiculous in every sense of the word, but there is one thing that actually makes the movie rather creepy. The voice of The Gingerdead Man is Gary Busey. No one is saying that, in real life, Gary Busey himself is a giant, humanoid gingerbread creature with a hunger for human flesh. But no one is saying he isn't, either.


And the sequels are worth checking out, if only for their titles: Gingerdead Man 2: The Passion Of The Crust and Gingerdead Man 3: Saturday Night Cleaver.

unnamed-6.jpg
unnamed-8.jpg
unnamed-9.jpg

6. One Missed Call (2008)- A film about a possessed cell phone that calls people before they die

Cell phones possessed by evil spirits call their victims in advance of their deaths. Then the victims die. No one thinks to change their number, get rid of the phone or simply send the death spirit to voice mail. At one point in the film an exorcism is performed on a phone.

0% on Rotten Tomatoes...yes we said zero.

unnamed-7.jpg

7. The Unborn (2009)- The ghost of a child killed during the holocaust terrorizes a young woman

The angry, restless spirit of a boy — one half of a set of twins — killed in the Holocaust during World War II, roams history waiting to be reborn. So it makes perfect sense that he’d select a hot teen girl of 2008 as the object of his wrath. There are murders, hallucinations, tornado-like exorcisms and a crazily over-acting Jane Alexander shouting about the Holocaust. Fun project: Find a fan of ludicrously bad movies and say “Jumby wants to be born now.” Watch their eyes light up.
