Show Notes:

Top 5 Wrestlers

Daniel

  1. Sting and Brett HartSting and Brett Hart – Tied for number one. Brett Hart  – technician and wrestling personified. Sting rocks a gimmick like nobody’s business. They shared the same finisher. Both rocked the wrestling world. Sting the author of the auto-docu-bio-pic.
  2. Stone Cold Steve Austin – He is probably in his own category. He is immortal. He changed wrestling and invented a new type of archetype. He had some BAAAAAD Gimmicks.
  3. The Rock – The most electrifying man in all of entertainment. The look, the mic skills, the whole package. There were some bad gimmicks in The Rock’s past. We might know a little too much abouThe Rock – Go – Dwayne Johnson.
  4. Hulk Hogan – Amazing physical specimen. Huge. He had the charisma to keep the whole crowd suck in. The Real American Music would hit and the crowd would go crazy. It was Hulk Hogan on Wrestling and Hulk Hogan’s Rockin Wrestling for a cartoon. Wrestle Mania 3 slamming Andre the Giant.
  5. Jeff Hardy and the Hardy Boys in general. “Come out of the shadows Lita and show us the Whale Tail.” The resurgence of the tag team and these guys were off the chain. High-flyer extraordinaire. Jeff Hardy against the Luchas. Punky Gothic look. Broken crack head Matt Hardy with an X-Men reference.

Jason

  1. Hot RodRowdy Roddy Piper – All out of gum and ready to kick ass. Hot Rod was one of the best ever. He and Brett Hart had one of the best runs against each other ever. Started wrestling before he turned 16. Faught Mr. T in Wrestlemania 2 or 3. Was Hulk Hogan’s heel he is what pushed Hogan over the top. Maybe the best Talker ever! They Live – Hell Comes to Frogtown.
  2. The Undertaker – He should almost be in his own category. His gimmick scared the shit out of me as a kid. Paul Bearer looked like a child molester. Daniel is banned from doing that impersonation ever again. The Phenom.
  3. Mick Foley – ManKind – Dude Love – Cactus Jack – I didn’t know if I liked him or not when I first saw him as ManKind but he is one of the best. Barbwire, tacks, and c-4.Hell In A Cell with Taker. Ear torn off in a match with Vader. Smart guy, great writer, weird Santa connection.
  4. Ric Flair – He carried all of those regional shows on his shoulders for a long time. Flair was an amazing wrestler. Whenever he took the ring you knew what the sequence of events was going to be. He was going to get on his knees and beg. He was going to take the turnbuckle flip. He was going to chop the crap out of someone. He was gonna get a lot of ‘color.’ Hair the color of Santa Claus’s robe.
  5. Kevin Nash – Big Sexy Kevin Nash. Diesel his own self. The Great and Power Oz. Vinnie Vegas. Some really bad gimmicks and he was not the best wrestler but he has charisma out of the yin-yang.

Honorable Mention:

  • Lita – extraordinarily bad ass.
  • Andre the Giant
  • Ron Simmons – Part of Doom, Faarooq, and the APA – DAMN!
  • Legion of Doom
  • Macho Man Randy Savage
  • Dusty Rhodes
  • Jerry Lawler
  • Chris Jericho
  • Scott Hall
  • Edge
  • Bad Ass Billy Gunn
  • Eddie Guerrero
  • Chris Benoit
  • British Bulldog
  • Owen Hart
  • Jake the Snake Roberts
  • Junkyard Dog

Top 5 Podcasts… at the moment

Daniel

  1. hollywood babble onHollywood Babble On – Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith live on stage and blasted into your ears. Topics vary but the love these two have for bringing the funny is beyond belief. They have weekly segments that help them hit the high points in entertainment and beyond.
  2. Steve Austin Unleashed – Steve Austin getting the bullshit off his brain. One of our favorite podcasts every week. We love this show so much that we were concerned about Ted Fowler during the hurricanes. Very diverse podcast. Wrestling to MMA, hunting to sitting in traffic.
  3. Tell Em Steve Dave – We are part of the Ant Army we want our 4 Color Demon patches. Tell Em Steve Dave is a reference to the Kevin Smith Jersey-Verse. We love this podcast. Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, and Brian Quinn (Also: Ming Chen, Mike Zapcic, Sunday Jeff, Git Em Steve Dave and many others).
  4. Nick Toons Podcast – hosted by Hector Navarro – deep digs on all things animation. Clean and family friendly. Work-friendly for Daniel. Their discussions are not just Nickelodeon based, they cover other topics as well.
  5. Edumacation – Kev Smith and Andy McElfresh. Andy has the knowledge and tries to impart it to Kevin. It is educational and the fun is listening to Kevin try and figure out the answers on his own. Cocktail Knowledge at its finest.

Jason

  1. fatman on batmanFatman on Batman – Kevin Smith and Marc Bernardin – While we love Kevin Smith, I have developed such an admiration and love for Marc Bernardin. Amazing writer. His thought process on movies and scripts makes my brain hurt.
  2. Tell Em Steve Dave – we have a cross-over
  3. Hollywood Babble-On – we have a cross-over
  4. The Smartest Man in the World Podcast with Greg Proops – This is a stand-up routine where he sits down. Not always just funny. Very thought provoking and very brainy. Topics range from politics to movies to baseball to social justice. Tremendous podcast.
  5. Doug Loves Movies – Doug Benson and a rotating cast of characters, Movie trivia with a very loose set of rules. We would rule at this game. Doug if you are ever in the Knoxville area please let us play. Jason will bring stuff from Daniel’s house for the prize bag. Jason wants to run the game and let Doug play.

Procras10ation Episode 4 – The One Where Video Games Are Life

Eat. SLeep. Breathe. Play. Die. Respawn. Repeat. Procras10ation Episode 4 – The One Where Video Games Are Life allows us to geek out about video games and our love of all things connected to a console or a PC or an arcade console.  

Show Notes:

  • dolph he-manJason changes the name of the podcast again.
  • Dolph Lungren as Prince Adam from He-Man in the
  • And Jason changes the name again

  • Shout-out to Travis for letting me play games back in the day at the arcade in Columbus, MS. Dual-Weidling on Lethal Enforcers.
  • Jason bitches about the cost of arcade video games per play. $1 a throw for a round of Time Crisis, because arcades hate children.
  • Daniel is the reason why arcades cost what the cost. He likes to break things. Worst arcade story ever. Jason is afraid of getting hepatitis from the video games. The floors in arcades are worse than the floors in dollar theaters.
  • Shout out to the arcade at the Island in Pigeon Forge – it is called Arcade City. Fantastic Arcade!!!
  • Daniel has too many consoles. It is a bit sad.
  • Jason wants one of the retro systems that will play all of the various catridges.

Top 5 Retro Video Games

Daniel

  1. Super Street Fighter 2Super Street Fighter 2 – Daniel is hooked on fighting games. Super Street Fighter 2 was the original idea for DLC by video game companies. 4 characters got added with the SUper version.
  2. Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – Daniel got his with his Genesis console. Sonic one came with the system and he had a certificate to get Sonic 2 in the mail.
  3. Super Mario Brothers 3 – groundbreaking game – long game lots of new features that helped the gameplay and were very inventive.
  4. Galaga – whether on a console or an arcade console it is always a solid game. A pattern game that at some point tests your ability to memorize a pattern and then tests your ability to move your hands really fast.
  5. Avengers Multiplayer Arcade Game – which leads to a discussion of the TMNT side-scroller, X-Men side-scroller, and the Simpson’s side-scroller.
    1. We discover that the Avengers game only had 4 playable characters. We actually look it up – who would have thought.
    2. Using the special abilities on the X-Men game slowly killed you.

Jason

  1. sonic the hedgehog 2Sonic the Hedgehog 2 – We did have a crossover. Sonic 1 was AMrio on speed. Almost too fast to play. After you learned the moves you
  2. Populous – Sega Genesis old school – Hours dedicated to this game. Only playable in the Master system with the volume control. The worlds had a number that you could choose or it could be random. Think seeds for Minecraft.
  3. Goldeneye 64 – should be higher on Jason’s list just due to the number of hours played. The N64 controller was a design travesty. You only used the left-hand yoke on the wrestling games. Played Goldeneye all the time in college. Round robin tournaments of Goldeneye, Mario Kart, and a wrestling game of some time. Shout out to Greg, Shaun, Matt, Mark and the rest of the crew from William Carey.
  4. Turok for the N64 – FPS that was a little more than a shooter. Doom but as a native. The graphics were amazing at the time and
  5. Burger Time – The long lost horribly muted cousin of Donkey Kong. Murderous food tried to kill you as you walked across the burger pieces to make them drop down the stages. My sister got me hooked on this game back in the day.

Honorable Mentions:

The question of the Week:

What game did you want to see a sequel of that never happened?

Daniel wanted to see a sequel to Mario 64.

Jason wants to see an update of Altered Beast directed by Eli Roth.

Procras10ation Episode 3 – The One Where We Want Superpowers

This Geeks World LogoYou all want superpowers. We all want to be superheroes… or villains. Procras10ation Episode 3 – The One Where We Want Superpowers lets us journey into our comic book heritage. After listening to this, we might know a little too much about comic book superheroes. 

Show Notes:

  • Jason changed the name and Daniel doesn’t like it.
  • Solvents, transistors and butt plugs not really – no branded butt plugs, yet.
  • Jason works for an e-commerce realtor in East Tennessee.
  • Daniel is a banker.
  • We like to think we are podcasters primarily though.
  • First mention of Forbush Man – he will make appearances.
  • Squirrel Girl and Deadpool on a TV show. Oh please let Disney buy Fox – oh wait…
  • The Hate Monger
  • She-Hulk, Crystal and Ms. Marvel in Fantastic Four was amazing! Ms Marvel had a rock vagina? Does the Thing even have a schlong? Rock phallus. Reed Richard’s invents a sander to take care fo the chaffing.
  • Bizarro tangent – Daniel knows a little too much about Bizarro. Jason hating on DC… again.
  • We throw some hate at X3 – what a horrible movie.

Top 5 Superpowers

Daniel

Penelope the Podcast Puppy

Penelope the Podcast Puppy

 

  1. Flight – Superman style
  2. Teleportation – Nightcrawler style
  3. Telekinesis and Telepathy – Daniel is a little bit Jean Grey. We debate whether Jean Grey was any good after she lost the green Spandex.
  4. Fire Generation and Ice Generation – who had both powers in each universe. Daniel thinks that the Super Scroll had more than just the Fantastic Four powers but Jason is thinking about just the SuperSkrull. Equinox had both powers in the Marvel universe.
  5. Invisibility – Daniel doesn’t want to be a criminal – he also doesn’t want to have the force field – Daniel just wants to be gone from the world at the snap of a finger.

Jason

  1.  Gem of Cyttorak – I get to be the Juggernaut
  2. Teleportation – Nightcrawler style – unlimited distance and using a cell phone and GPS – Teleportation Fart –
  3. Flight – not Angel style flight, actual flight.
  4. Healing… Deadpool style. Deadpool sets the bar for healing factors.
  5. Invisibility – it would have to be Sue Richards invisibility – telekinesis/invisibility – Jason admits that where he superpowered he would probably tend toward being a villain. Force Field invisibility so that you don’t have to nude up everytime you go invisible.

Worst Power Set?

Squirrel Girl – Plant Man – Doctor Bong

The question of the Week: Where is the weak link in the Marvel Universe?

This question leads a talk about the cinematic universe vs the small screen Marvel Universe.

Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket

Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket

On this day, 1962, NASA made a big announcement. They said they were gonna rocket it Like a C5 Like a C5 Rocket.

Ok, forgive my bit of punniness, but I am and always have been a fan of the US Space Agency, NASA. In 1962 they did announce that they were going to create a new rocket called the C5. This rocket became the backbone of the space race. It powered all of the Apollo missions and would eventually put us on the moon.

According to Wikipedia:

The three-stage rocket would consist of: the S-IC first stage, with five F-1 engines; the S-II second stage, with five J-2 engines; and the S-IVB third stage, with a single J-2 engine. The C-5 was designed for a 90,000-pound (41,000 kg) payload capacity to the Moon.

Lots of numbers and those numbers equate to power, lots of power. Th C5 was eventually renamed the Saturn V and these Saturn rockets were the biggest and coolest thing on the face of the planet. Really they were the most awesome thing we had a little off the planet as well.

As you may or may not know, Wernher von Braun the famed German rocket scientist was the brain behind the project along with hundreds of other German scientists. Von Braun’s designs put all the thrust that we needed behind the rocket to fuel Kennedy’s statement that we were going to put a man on the moon. That man on the moon would never have gotten there without the passion of the people of NASA and the C5. It is amazing what happens when you strap some electronics and three guys to the top of the biggest rocket known to man and shoot them at the moon.

The really amazing thing to me is the fact that this rocket was announced in 1962, developed in 1963 and by the end of the decade.. was taking people to the moon to walk around for a little while. When you really look at this announcement, it was the start of most of the technology that we cherish today. It was the fire that drove our ideas and plans to the moon. January 10, 1962 – history altering date in science, technology and maybe everything else.

I Am a Bad Gamer

I am a bad gamer. I hardly ever buy a game when it first comes out. I like a hard copy of the game and at times I am turned off by the multiplayer/online aspect of most games. I am not saying that I am opposed to first run games, but I am opposed to paying the money...
