Episode 145: Two All-Beef Patties…OF DOOM!!!!!

Monday, June 5th, 2017

Nothing goes hand in hand with Nerd Culture better than fast food.  Whether it’s a Big Mac, a Five Guys burger, or an Arby’s roast beef (if you’re a monster), nothing hits the spot while you’re arguing over the merits of Val Kilmer as Batman.

 

On this installment, Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine discuss their favorite (and, of course, their not so favorite) menu items at national and regional fast food chains, as well as some choice mentions from the counter service at Disney!

 

Then, stay tuned for the return of the fan favorite segment “Stupid, Stupid” where the team discusses the lack of accessibility to “The World of Pandora” at Disney’s Animal Kingdom (short version:  we blame James Cameron!)!

Episode 139 (Side A): Joshua Tree 2: The Destruction of Bruno

Sunday, February 5th, 2017

1987….The year that yielded some of the best music of the entire decade.  So why does the Top of the Charts look and sound like it was frozen in a time capsule from 1961?  Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe try to discover the answer in Geek Salad’s Episode 139:  Joshua Tree 2:  The Destruction of Bruno, where they attempt to break through the notable singles of the year. 

 

While there were some timely stalwarts of 80’s music; Madonna, Bon Jovi, U2, etc…the pop charts were littered with the likes of Lisa Lisa, Billy Vera (who wrote the breakup song to end all breakup songs for “Family Ties”), and Gregory (who?) Abbott…

 

…also, Mike will be hearing Kenny G’s “Songbird” for the first time, so be nice to him…!!!

Episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author)

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

It's Holiday time once again, which also means that it is once again time for Geek Salad to present their annual Holiday episode. This time, they cover Ebenezer Scrooge, Bob Cratchit, and the revenge of Tiny Tim in Geek Salad episode 137: Kristmas Karol by Edmund Welles (the Well-Known Dutch Author).

Ever since it was first published in 1843, hardly any story in history has had as many adaptations as Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol. While there have been a number of well-done faithful adaptations, and quite a few fun and different takes on it as well, there have also been more than a few versions that bring out the Scrooge in us. So join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Autumn as they experience both the highs and the lows.

They are also accompanied by three spirits: Jack Daniels, Jim Beam, and Mulled Wine.

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Get your tickets and Fast Passes ready, because the team at Geek Salad is going to be taking you on a wild ride!  Relive the fun, the laughs, and the motion sickness when Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine discuss their favorite amusement parks. 

 

From the parks that the gang grew up around in New England, to some of the most head scratching “amusement” parks imaginable (Dollywood, I’m looking right in your general direction!) to the House of Mouse, the Geeks have you covered!

(For the parents out there, we would like to point out that, while we are discussing a whole bunch of Family FunTime destinations, this show is definitely NOT for your kids!!!)

Thursday, February 25th, 2016

Think about it…there must be Higher Love…and you can get that with Geek Salad Episode 124:  Back in the (Miller) High Life Again (feat. The Michelob Horns).  In this extra, extra long installment, Andy, Mike, Katherine, and the returning Jim, discuss the long list of Billboard Number One hits of the year 1986.  They also find time to tear apart the video for Don Johnson’s “Heartbeat,” and discuss their favorite albums released in ’86!  And what would a discussion that involves Huey Lewis be if it didn’t include Jim making jokes about his schlong!

Episode 123: Old Men Sitting In Caves Distributing Swords

Friday, January 29th, 2016

It’s dangerous to go alone….take this!!!

 

…and with those words, the children of the 80’s blew into their golden cartridges, prayed that the included battery saved their game data, and went on their quest to save the Princess Zelda.

 

Now, Mike, Andy, and Joe discuss the enduring legacy that is the quest of Link in the Legend of Zelda games.  They discuss the triumphs, like the original game, Ocarina of Time, and Twilight Princess, to the failures of Majoro’s Mask, Link’s Adventure, and the CD-i games that were so awful, they were scrubbed from the Zelda continuity.

 

Then, hang out as the boys discuss the latest “Suicide Squad” trailer.

 

Then, buckle in for the depressing third of the show, where the gang discusses the recent deaths of Glen Frey, Alan Rickman, and David Bowie…

Tuesday, September 29th, 2015

A long time ago in a Galaxy far, far away….

 

…actually, it was 1999, and Star Wars fans were handed the start of a movie trilogy that would divide the fans and create fierce debate!

 

Now the team of Geek Salad, along with Andy’s cousin Anna, a member of the Hasbro team bringing us some plastic awesomeness with the Force Awakens toy line, is here to break down what went right and what went, well…no so much…in Geek Salad Episode 118 (Part 1):  I Would Have Preferred Order 69!

 

Part 1 of the conversation includes talk about Episode I:  The Phantom Menace as well as their social media feedback!

 

Part 2, which will be available next week, will include talk about Attack of the Clones, Revenge of the Sith, as well as the Clone Wars cartoons and a discussion about the new Force Awakens toys!

Episode 111: Shawarma…ASSEMBLE!!!!

Monday, April 27th, 2015

We're here to talk to you about the Avengers Initiative....

 

...and with those words, the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked into high gear!  From the 2008 release of Iron Man, to last year's surprise hit Guardians of the Galaxy, the MCU has been kicking butt throughout the movie industry. 

 

...and now Geek Salad is here to rank them...

 

 

Thanks to our friends on Facebook, the team of Andy, Mike G., Joe, and Katherine count down from 10 to 1 the favorite films in both Phase 1 and Phase 2, leading up to the May 1st release of Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Which movies will end up lower than expected?  Which movies got more love than usual?  And who will rank supreme?

 

Then, stay tuned for a trio of Trailer Parks, where the team discuss the latest trailers from Star Wars Episode VII:  The Force Awakens, Batman vs. Superman:  Dawn of Justice, and Ant-Man.

Episode 110: Cialis and the Dance of the Seven Boners

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Ahh, advertising, the pandering messages that help pay for your favorite shows. They try to prey on our emotions in all different manners, but now you have a defense against them thanks to Geek Salad episode 110: Cialis and the Dance of the Seven Boners. Join Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine as they try and make some sense out of everything from watery American beer to Hulk Hogan's (not George Foreman's) counter-top grill. Nothing will scare them off from their task... except maybe Quiznos' Spongmonkeys. What the hell are those things?!?

Afterwards, unwind and relax with some X-Men Stupid Stupid, then wrap things up in wonderfulness as James Bond returns to Trailer Park.

Episode 108: And Then, There Was KEYTAR!!!!

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Ah, the music of 1985....where everything sounded like the interim music of a high=end porno!  And now, the team at Geek Salad will review the number one hits, the cheesy classics, as well as some of their favorite albums of the mid-point of the 80's in a super-sized installment!  Who scored more number one hits that year, Madonna or Phil Collins?  And did they all sound like they were in the mood to make love? 

 

Then, stick around for a two-fer on Trailer Park where the gang discusses the teaser for "Fantastic Four" and the  Super Bowl spot for "Ted 2."  Then hear them discuss the Cure for Happiness that was this year's crop of Super Bowl commercials!
