Episode 163: Geek Salad, as Performed by “Greek Salad”

Wednesday, July 11th, 2018

They say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery….but what happens when the imitation surpasses the original?  Well, the team at Geek Salad is going to try to answer that as they discuss the cover songs they feel surpassed the originals!

 

Joining Mike, Katherine, Joe, and Andy for this installment is onetime co-hose of the show Jim (and his son Nicholas, who is keeping us on Language Filter throughout the show) as they talk about some great covers from Metallica, Pearl Jam, Rascal Flatts, Foo Fighters, and Disturbed, among others.  They will also fight tooth and nail over the age old question about if there are actually any good Beatles covers out there….

Episode 159: Who is Sally and Why Does She Like Mexico?

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2018

Out of all the filmmakers of the past 50 years, perhaps of all time, few have been as popular nor seminal as Steven Spielberg. To celebrate the life and films of a man often considered one of the greatest directors of all time, Geek Salad discusses all things Spielberg in episode 159: Who is Sally and Why Does She Like Mexico?

Join Andy, Joe, and Mike as they discuss the many highs (Jaws, Indiana Jones, Jurassic Park) and relatively few but still very lows (1941, Jurassic Park, Indiana Jones) of Steven Spielberg. From his TV movie, Duel, all the way to Andy and Mike's *very* differing reviews of Ready Player One. They will delve deep and try and discover the identity of Sally!

Episode 158 (Side A/The Singles): Operation McFerrincrime

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

Here’s a little song I wrote…Makes you want to slit my throat…

 

…And with that, Geek Salad reviews the Music of 1988 with Episode 158: Operation McFerrincrime!  On this side of the record, Mike, And, Katherine, and Joe discuss the top singles of the year.  Among many One Week Wonders lie a few songs that completely overstayed their welcome, a couple of artists who we never thought we’d get rid of that suddenly disappeared, and a Thunder Dome-esque debate over the “good” to “unbelievable crappiness” merits of the “Beach Boys” Kokomo!

Episode 157: Two and a Half Meningitis

Tuesday, March 13th, 2018

 We all have TV shows that we absolutely love and go back episode after episode to follow along with the story and characters. However, we all also know of a show that we truly loved, but found it getting stale, dull, and/or just plain stupid the longer it remained on the air. In honor of those shows that refused to quit even after the writing did, Geek Salad presents episode 157: Two and a Half Menengitis.

Join Andy, Joe, and Mike as they discuss some of their favorite shows which slowly, or rapidly, devolved into some of their least favorite shows when they refused to end. Did ER really need to go 7 seasons after losing Anthony Edwards? Is Family Guy still on the air? And Heroes was only heroic for the first season of a 4 season run.

#NotMyGeekSalad : A Geek Salad Side Salad Discussion

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

So there is a straw that finally broke Geek Salad’s camel’s back…toxic fandom.  Pretty much, the last couple of years have produced some of the most maddening arguments and, quite frankly, some of the worst people that humanity has produced (thanks GamerGate!), all due to something that we either love, or “love”….

 

So as a quick, non-cannonical, aside to our episodes, Andy, Joe, and Mike discuss toxic fandom!

Episode 156: An American Werewolf on Golden Pond

Sunday, February 11th, 2018

While doing their yearly retrospecticons on the movies and musics of 30 years ago, Geek Salad had neglected to cover the movies of 1981. Well this oversight has finally been corrected as the crew finally brings you episode 156: An American Werewolf on Golden Pond. "The loons, Norman! The... AHHHHHHHH!!!" That might have made me interested in seeing that movie, if I'm honest.

Yes, from Time Bandits to Raiders of the Lost Ark, Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine tackle 1981's top ten grossing films before heading into some of the more memorable (for good or for ill) films of the year that also gave us Donkey Kong.

Episode 155: Playbill and Rent’s Excellent Adventure

Sunday, January 21st, 2018

Please refrain from flash photography and make yourself comfortable…Geek Salad is going Broadway with our gala musical episode (disclaimer: outside of a couple of random parts here and there, nobody actually breaks out into song).

 

With the help of guests Matt Jones (i.e.; professional actor type) and Autumn (aka: “Mrs Andy”), as well as a MASSIVE swell of social media feedback, Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe cover many different eras and genres of musicals.  While the discussion focuses on the typical Broadway show, the gang does talk about movie musicals, as well as sending Mike and Joe out to Thunderdome to discuss the TV (Stunt) Musical…

 

Due to the length of the discussion, we’ve put together playlists of much of the music discussed on the show.  You can download the Spotify Playlist here

Or check out the YouTube Playlist here
