Episode 147: Such Heroic Nonsense!

Monday, July 10th, 2017

Back in 1984, kids had lost interest in most of the toy lines of the day.  Then, Hasbro released the Transformers line, and kids now had toys that could be cars, trucks, jets, and guns, as well as kick-ass robots! Now the Geek Salad team of Joe, Andy, and Mike discuss the toy line, as well as the multiple cartoon and comic book series and the 1986 animated movie.

 

Then, they’ll put their film school nerd caps on to discuss everything wrong with the dumpster fire that is the Michael Bay Transformers series.  It’s at this point that Andy will go off on proper character motivation and action sequencing while Joe and Mike bang their heads against the coffee table trying to figure out how, in God’s name, you can screw up the Dinobots!!!!

Episode 146: Boombox Barbecue

Monday, June 26th, 2017

Ahh, summer! Kids are out of school, adults are still at work being resentful of summer vacation, and people generally want to be outside and go on trips or just relax by the pool. On those hot summer weekends, when you're firing up the grill and need some tunes for entertainment, what are some of the best songs to crank the boombox to? Well worry no longer, for the Geek Salad crew is here to give some entries to their summer playlists with Geek Salad episode 146: Boombox Barbecue!

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine all have very different ideas about what makes a great summer playlist, so even if one song doesn't work for you, there is sure to be a better one around the corner. Who will have the most eclectic mix? Who's playlist was primarily picked by their daughter? If you've been listening for any length of time, you probably already know the answers. But if not, then let the burgers sizzle and enjoy Boombox Barbecue! And even if you know the answers, go ahead and enjoy anyway, because... what the hell? And be sure to stick around after the conversation as Andy, Mike, and Joe give their review of Wonder Woman.

For 10 seasons, the TV show Mystery Science Theater 3000 has been making some of the worst movies out there into hilarious viewing experiences. On April 14, 2017, the show returns with new episodes. In celebration of this momentous occurrence, Geek Salad has once again united to list off some of their favorite episodes and shorts from the show's history with Episode 142: Movie Sign and Chill.

Andy, Mike, Joe, and Katherine each come prepared with a list of some of their favorite moments in MST3K history. In which movie did we see the epic battle between Paul Anka and Mel Torme? Which short gives us valuable tips about what to do on a date? Is the short, "A Date with your Family" as creepy as it sounds (hint: Yes). All these questions, and more, are sure to be answered.

Episode 140: Dress + Animal Sidekick = Princess (Part 1)

Tuesday, March 7th, 2017

In 1937, Walt Disney and his animation studio introduced the world to the concept of a feature length film done entirely in animation. Now, 80 years later, Walt Disney Animation Studios has 56 feature films to their credit. Counting down the top 25 of those proved too big a task for the Geek Salad crew so they put out the call to anyone who would listen and the result is Geek Salad episode 140: Dress + Animal Sidekick = Princess.

As it turns out, though, counting down the top 25 Disney animated feature films also proved to be a very long task, so this episode has been split into two more manageable pieces. This first part covers numbers 25 through 11.

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…!!!

Geek Salad - 2016 in Review

Saturday, December 31st, 2016

So... 2016, the year that had the Grim Reaper as a patron saint. There were a lot of very high profile tragic deaths this year, but Andy and Mike attempt to keep things positive during their 2016 Year in Review.

Recorded while on the road to do an errand, the two go over some of the brighter moments of the past year, while also discussing the rocky start to the DCEU, as well some of the losses we've suffered this past year.

From all of us here at Geek Salad, we wish you a very Happy New Year and here's hoping 2017 is a bit less killer.

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.
