The party is going well. The music is banging. The people are awesome. And you got some good movies playing in the background. The kind that are good to have in the background and you don’t have to pay attention to. But the movie is over and the punch bowl needs refilling. You can do replace both easy, but not at the same time. You can refill the p…
 
The Crazy Frog is only like 30% crazy, max. Sure, like he is unusual, but I wouldn’t say he is crazy. Maybe like speaks louder than normal at a restaurant crazy. Goes to the grocery store and buys at least four different flavors of pop tart crazy. Rents the wet vacuum from the same grocery store but keeps it for four days crazy. Posts on twitter ab…
 
Those chips need to escape. Into your hands, specifically. Into your mouth, where the delicious junk morsels must go. But heaven is denied and you have taken to greater measures. You back up. It’s personal now. It’s just you, a roomful of classmates with easy access to photographic evidence and a vending machine with a hatred for the living. You ha…
 
Hey, look! It’s the Doctor! The Doctor of Whositwhatsit! There were many of the Doctor and Sylvester McCoy may be your winking doctor! But overall, he is a distraction from the TRUTH.

It is the Nineties and it’s time for Flipper! But not the Elijah Wood/Paul Hogan feature film. No, you’re getting the 1995 television remake for.. Channel? Was it a channel? Was is on TV?

Come to Super Van City!!! It’s a Van! And a City! All in one!!!! But it’s tiny too. But the big sort of tiny? The kind of tiny that has a whole block to it, with a potential small (micro) kabab place with the good kababs and the one with the okay kababs too. And if you go to the okay one, it’s alright! It’s not going to ruin your day! You’re at SUP…
 
Don’t you wanta? I’m tempted to end the post there. There’s a few of us (Namely the two of us hosting this podcast you are looking at right now) who have an instant reaction to those words or the saccharine jingle that is somehow melody-less and catchy at the same time. The trend is to call us “Geriatric Millennials” And you’d be right, but haven’t…
 
Aliens! Do they exist? Who knows?! Maybe the government if they can stop shrugging their damn non-alien shoulders! What are we looking at? Bigfoot? The Moon? A crude-shaped future drone? We asked every member of Blink-182 their opinion and we realized we don’t personally know any of the members of that band so we’re stuck and out of options. Maybe …
 
Your neighbor has left for the weekend. You offered to house sit and they’re ecstatic to have such a friendly neighbor willing to do it for free. But you have an ulterior motive. You know they’re using the Pizza-Tron 5000 XL Microwave, with extra room for maximum flakyness on the dough. You know it’s next to the window and easily viewable from your…
 
Twelve issues of animals! Twelve of them! Can you name them all?

o/~ AHHHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhHHHHH! HOOKED ON A FEELING! This baby is dancing! And it is called a meme! Though we didn’t know it yet! And some other words right here!” Honestly, I don’t know what else to say about this. It’s a baby. it’s dancing. It was on a hit TV show for an episode and people talked about it. Now we’re talking about it. On loop. Forev…
 
Melrose Place! It’s a place near Beverly Hills, 90210! It has people! Sexy people! Do they know the people from the show ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’? Let’s hope not, if that want to survive to the next season! Always stopping the music and re-assuring the audience that maybe they won’t die in a horrible firey accident at the end of the episode. All this…
 
There’s something strange about pest control companies. Something a little unhinged. Maybe it’s the destruction of thousands of tiny little vermin and bugs every day that breaks a person. Maybe it’s entering house upon house looking for every fault. Maybe it’s the smell of all those chemicals mixed together, just wafting around in his truck. But ev…
 
When the hell are we getting back from those messages? Did we ever leave? Did we get those 80s and 90s toys they were about to talk to us about! Did we ever achieve the ultimate in fantasy weaponry? We don’t know because we’re trapped in a claymation hell going bump in the night with a sentient fire hydrant that is torturing a poor dog who just hap…
 
Oh, you think it’s just going to be a nostalgia trip through commercial land. They always think that. One minute you’re watching the Bubble Tape Commercial on a streaming site of your choice and the next minute you’re buying it at your gas station and remembering that chalky taste that never quite goes away. As you chew threw the six feet of partia…
 
You’re at the hottest restaurant in town. You think. You’re not sure if your friend who swears by the place said it was on the first or second floor but you’re there. A decision has to be made. Surely, if they’re in the same building, they’re both equally good, right? You make a decision. It’s the first floor you go. There’s no server that you see.…
 
Your abs need a shape! Any shape! And you need to find the perfect way to do nothing while doing that! What if I said I had that and can still make you terrified to do small menial tasks while doing so? Then I have the Hawaii Chair just for you! Imagine a chair with barely the usefulness of sitting down. Now imagine if it was spinning like a carniv…
 
You are Tom Green. You just put a mouse in your mouth. It’s the third time you’ve done it this week for three different movies. You think this one is for some movie called Road Trip, but you’re not quite sure. You’re mixing up the movie plots. You would be mixing up the lines, but you don’t have any; the director just gave you a big blank check and…
 
The world wasn’t ready for the FlavorPro Injector. Noone was. Not you. Not me. Not the Rocket School where it was used to keep its inventor around because noone knew how to properly baste a meat despite having plenty of access to fire and potential cooking experience from the fire. He was a person of principle and that principle was “WHAT IF WE HAD…
 
It’s time to go to sleep, engineer! Get to the back to the caboose, where you sleep, I think. They didn’t pay for that insurance for nothing! And if they did, well, why did they do that?! While you’re going back there, tell them about our in-transit entertainment, which is nothing but the opening to the Hanna-Barbera Live Action Sitcom “Going Banan…
 
It’s 2:04 in the afternoon. It’s time to start getting ready to go home from school. Or… Is it? Maybe you put on your sweatband. Maybe you put on your dancing gloves. Maybe you have the whole suit to go with it! The breakdance suit. Because you’re part of the Breakdance Club at your local high school and it’s time to GET SERIOUS. FOR BREAKDANCING. …
 
It’s the night shift again. It’s time for you to close up. It was a busy day at your Arby’s franchise, but you feel like the service you gave was at least worth a “3” on the Customer Satisfaction Survey. Heck, maybe it was even a “4”! You’re satisfied. Still, the stress of the day builds up. You get out your Fushigi Magic Gravity ball and start rel…
 
The Sandwich Artist beckons. Come. Enter the lair of magic and protein. Become filled with wonder about the amount of carbs and vegetable-based products in this laboratory of food. You are welcomed here. You and your hunger. We know why you have arrived in this nexus of hunger and salvation. It was not by choice. It was fate. See, we knew you’d be …
 
Matthew McConaughey! A man of action! Romance! The movies! He’s been in it all! But has he been in the Sahara? Yes, actually. He has been, in a movie no one can actually remember seeing but everyone thinks was kind of alright! Was he finding gold? Yeah, sure, maybe. Was he doing the action? All of it! Was he needing it to survive because it’s the o…
 
What the hell is Cola? We don’t know! We don’t have access to the internet in this business room. It’s against corporate policy! We have a white board, some markers that are half dry and the most powerful tool we have at our disposal: Our minds! Now, let’s make some circles (use the green markers) open up a case of Shasta in all its different flavo…
 
You gotta make that content! Everyone’s doing it these days! If you don’t have a personal brand, you might as well be Personally Damned ™! You can hear this and more on my self-help audio cassette “Jumping Ropes Through Life”, which has been used by many successful people! Take virtual youtuber Korone Inugami, for instance! Here she is jumping rope…
 
Welcome to the meeting. Come inside. How you vibing? You vibing good. Well, worry not. While you’re hear inside the sauna, you can let all your worries go away. Rest your head. Let your stress melt away. Listen to the music of Peter Gabriel play on the radio nearby. We only have one song, and it’s “Steam” by Peter Gabriel because it turns out licen…
 
It’s a Snow Day! A day of snow! Away from your school and all your fears! Nicklelodeon Movies knows what all the kids wants and they’re going to give it to you in spades (Get it? Spades? Because you need to use shovels for snow and– Okay, I’ll stop. I promise I’ll stop. Spades though!!–) That and comedians looking for a pay check. But what if the s…
 
It’s Topps day. Your co-worker is getting the latest uncut set of Topps Football 1989 Cards for the last season. Everyone is excited to find their team’s players name and look at the stats on the back of their known players on the team. Nothing else can be revealed, for if it is, you were dispatched on the spot and you will never be found. But you’…
 
Barney! Would you get a load of this? I’m trying to invent a new form of food to help us wake up and start the day! You know how I invented day and night cycles, right? Yeah, Barnes, you know it! Well, I put a bunch of salt, rice and sugar together with a bunch of weird colors I found and made something called a cereal? It’s delicious! And it makes…
 
Hey guys, it’s Uno! The game you play with people you barely know and only want to know slightly more about them by the end! Do they draw more cards? Can you make them skip their turn? Whatever! It’s Uno! Noone remembers who even won by the end! Yeah, we’ll have it done by next week! See ya! … They gone? Good. Okay, now that we got the game greenli…
 
Enter into the dojo of one Chop Chop Master Onion. He’s an onion. Not a wild onion that you may find in your yard or that John cannot find for the life of him, but a real onion. The type you’d put on your pizza or a calzon and sell as a promotional pizza from a big pizza chain. He has it all. He’s got tiny onion disciples. He’s got a dog who wants …
 
This trash just keeps piling up!! What’s a person with an open top convertible to do other than just throw it on the side of the road and give the middle finger to the climate as a whole? That’s just what this Tennessee Trash PSA does and it does it with the most battle damaged car this side of the psychobilly concert! Come see the ad that was play…
 
Hey Ghosts! Are you a ghost? If you’re a ghost you have to say “Booooo!” At least that’s what this Applesauce container says. It’s really weird that I’m following what an applesauce container says, but that’s because it’s 4 PM and I’m waiting for the reruns of Knight Rider to hit my TV Screen after school! Look at that guy! He’s cool! Look at his c…
 
You get knocked down, but will you ever get back up again? It’s a question posed by Chumbawamba in the 90s and we embraced it in every commercial sense. That’s why when you have a game made by an American company detailing soccer in low polygons with a freakish latex-laden bird mascot, you need something to cover it all with a warm, comforting blan…
 
Sometimes you just need to watch a mashup video that hastily combines two properties to celebrate an album that is all about merging media proprieties. Like this fan video of Neil Circierega’s mashup of Queen and the Spongebob Squarepants theme. And that’s fine! What are people in the future going to say about it though? Who cares about them! They …
 
What the heck is a Rax? We don’t have one where we live, but John (may) have been to one before. It’s got speed lines to tell you it’s fast! And people apparently explode when you say the slogan for their short time pita wrap thing. Terrifyingly, at that! Can you get some Rax and take it on the lake with you? Drive a boat with one hand and a pocket…
 
Come to Cabot Cove! Please! We need people to move in! Come see our nature and outdoors and fresh air and trees! We have lots of available, affordable housing for you to move into! And we have Angela Lansbury, the star of Murder, She Wrote! Just ignore the fact that the last three people who lived in there were murdered. Or the murderer. I forget. …
 
It’s an emergency Halloween slumber party and the nearest place is Walgreens. They don’t have any of their 4 for $10 Coca-Cola Products or pizzas, but they do have a copy some Quaker Oats Cereal and a copy of Bedazzled starring Brendan Frasier in the $1 bin ready for watching. It’s just as good right? They’re all hopped up on sugar and socializing …
 
Wait, you’re the 3 Ninjas of Nebraska? No way! We’re the Iowa 3 Ninjas! Fancy seeing you guys all here! So, how’s grandpa? Still skipping out on family to run a fake syndicate of ninja kids for the 90s? Same here! We got so much in common! Hey, you should come with us to Mega Mountains! Yeah, it’s got uh, a roller coaster? And maybe a western town?…
 
Diet Coke is a magic drink that makes America go around. Without it, we’d be twenty years behind the times, unable to be productive in business meetings or pretend like we’re working at the gym and watching ourselves. But did you know that there’s a secret reason why Diet Coke became so popular and it’s because it stops football players from meltin…
 
You say your sick and you need to stay home from school today, but everyone knows what you’re really after. It’s time to enjoy that treat denied to us in our youth: Unlimited soup and crackers, a warm blanket, the chance to play Final Fantasy 8 and finish it before your friends and watch a whole episode the Price is Right because nothing else is on…
 
It’s DragonCon 2006. You are thankful you chose to the timejump into 2020 and get that much needed relaxation before, but the 2020 you is ready for 2006. Armed with your extra knowledge of household cleaners and phone scripts, you can’t really use this in terms of your enjoyment of the convention, but you feel like it made you at least a little wis…
 
I have never been so happy as the people in soap commercials. Feeling good? Sure. Feeling relaxed? Maybe! But never to the point of the freak out psycho energy that they display in using a single bar of a corporate branded soap. What’s in it? What’s the secret? Is it illegal? Does it need to be done in a club bathroom in an 80s action movie? Does a…
 
Garfield likes a lot of food. This is considered one of his many good traits that he has and makes him a timeless classic. He will sell you all of the food in the word too. Fruit Snacks, Cereal, Breakfast Bars in Embassy Suites, all of it. Even Ravioili for some reason! All but the lone and holy Lasagna, which he will not sell out to any one living…
 
It’s cursed! Or mysterious! I don’t know, the History Channel claims both when it comes to The Curse of Oak Island but they’re definitely leaning hard into the “Curse” portion of the show. We aren’t so sure! There’s a big tunnel and some talk about the Templars and there’s a school bus shot for what appears to be no reason? The bus doesn’t go to th…
 
This week we watched an old Wendy’s Training Video for Hot Drinks on loop and learned a LOT about making hot drinks (Again.) John forgot Aaron made him watch it back in Season 3 and he thought he was being clever. Now he has to make a choice and and the dimensions (And April) hangs in the balance! WILL HE EVER GET TO WENDY’S? (No.) WILL HE EVER ESC…
 
Do you need drama in your drama program? What if we had an emergency trip to the hospital? What if we were the hospital. What if we had a bunch of emergencies every episode in the emergency room and that was the show? I think we might just have a hit show from the 90s on our hands! Yes, it’s “ER” and it former Batman George Clooney as a normal, non…
 
In the late 80s, cereal ideas were already pretty dire, but that doesn’t mean anything if you have a dino pun ready to go! As soon as you make a dino pun, your marketing idea instantly jumps up in potential profits 800%, no matter how much sawdust and glue you use in the final product. It just make sense. Put dinos in anything! Kids will love them.…
