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

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
  • Jason and Daniel declare their love for each other – and their wives (L Squared) are worried.
  • Jason’s tablet went off so he owes everyone a beer – Stone Cold Steve Austin Style
  • Bad thoughts and comments about Santa – Santa we are sorry.
  • Penelope chimes in late in the show.
  • Jason remembers a game that allowed you to control all of the limbs of the fighting character,
  • 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

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.

Procras10ation Episode 2 – The One Where Jason Hates On DC

Procras10ation Episode 2 – The One Where Jason Hates On DC

Procras10ation Episode 2 – The One Where Jason Hates On DC

Hate to give it away with the title but “Procras10ation Episode 2 – The One Where Jason Hates On DC” is the one where Daniel professes his love for DC comics and Jason… doesn’t. Our Top 5 List of Super Heros goes tangentially strange.

Show Notes:

  • Why can we not find an intro? Will it ever happen? Procras-10-Nation? Podcrastination
  • Penelope – Podcast Puppy
  • We need a flea market/dirt mall – mismatched superhero toys, Neck Deep in a Long Box and movies of questionable content and origin.
  • Olympic VCR tape chunking.
  • Hairy Cantaloupe doesn’t exist anymore – sorry for the name drop to a non-existent thing. We still have the episodes.

Top 5 Superheroes

  • Daniel
    1. Superman – How much does Daniel actually love Superman? It is an unholy love… Jason hates the way DC has used Superman over the years.
    2. Batman – classic superhero but we step out on our disagreement over the Nolan -Verse.- Jason lists a lot of the things that he hates about the Chris Nolan Batman universe. The rogue’s gallery of Batman is fantastic. How many Batman stories can we name?
    3. Wolverine – over-powered and glorious – no list if complete without Wolverine. Let’s shrink Hugh Jackman down to the right size: 5’3″. Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth.
    4. Flash – we like the flash but his powers become a crutch from time to time.
    5. Green Lantern – can’t affect yellow – really? – why DC – we love John Stewart Green Lantern
  • Jason
    1. Deadpool – We love on all things Deadpool. We are so ready for Deadpool 2.
    2. Wolverine – over-powered and glorious – no list if complete without Wolverine. Let’s shrink Hugh Jackman down to the right size: 5’3″. Liev Schreiber as Sabretooth.
    3. Nightcrawler – No version, there is no other but Kurt Wagner. Religious, swashbuckler – go find God Loves, Man Kills graphic novel.
    4. Iron Man – roller skates – briefcase suit – mesh for the armor – power source embedded in chest – Iron Man beats Green Lantern, period.
    5. Thor – great in the movies – Chris Hemsworth was born to be Thor
  • Was Blade white or black originally – it doesn’t matter but this is an ongoing thing between Jason and Daniel.
  • The first mention of Penelope the Podcast Puppy – picture to the right.
  • We really hate Zack Snyder and Chris Nolan when they are touching super-hero movies
  • God do we love Hangouts – go get the giphy chrome extension so that you can gif the hell out of someone.
  • Daniel can’t count.

The question of the week:

Why does the DC Universe not work in the movies?

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and they can’t make a good movie. Warner Brothers doesn’t make a good movie when it comes to Super Heroes. A brief discussion.
