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.

Episode 142: Movie Sign and Chill

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

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…!!!

Episode 138: The Discount Defenders!

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

Superheroes have been on television for almost as long as there has been television. However, things are considerably different now than when Superman would bust through cheap sets and Batman danced the Batusi. To go over the current crop of excellent (and not so excellent) superhero TV shows, join Andy, Mike, and Joe in Geek Salad episode 138: The Discount Defenders!

From DC's "Arrowverse" to Marvel's Defenders, the Geek Salad crew express their love, indifference, or dislike for all of the current comic-inspired TV shows (or as many as they can remember, anyway). Which Supergirl character do Andy and Mike completely disagree about? What do Mike and Joe think about the most recent seasons of Arrow? The answers to these questions and more (obviously) can be found within.

Sweet Christmas!

Episode 133: The Sausage King of Little China (Part 2)

Friday, September 30th, 2016

Geek Salad is back with the second half of episode 133: The Sausage King of Little China!

We know you've all been waiting with baited breath to find out how they can possibly top the first half, so now I can safely reveal that they get to talk about some of their personal favorite films from the year, 1986. Will Big Trouble in Little China make someone's list (as if you couldn't tell from the episode's title)? Could Iron Eagle make the cut? And might we see a certain musical based on an alien plant?

Small hint, all answers point to "Yes".

Episode 131: I Can’t Hear You!!!!

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

Hello Cleveland!  Are you ready to rock?  I can’t hear you!  The team of Geek Salad are way louder than you!  And Andy, Mike, Katherine, and Joe have sobered up to tell you their favorite (and comically horrifying) concert and live music stories in Episode 131: I Can’t Hear You! 

 

Have you ever been a beer mule for a Brian Adams concert?  Andy has!  Have you ever seen Eric Clapton 8 times?  Joe has!  Have you ever seen Travis Tritt during the World’s Greatest Mullet phase?  Mike did!  And have you ever had to drive the stoner bus to a Phish show?  Katherine has stores…

 

There are also stories about opening bands that forgot their place in the pecking order, worst encores, and a whole lot more!   So grab your lighter (or your lighter app if you’re..ya know…young…) and hold out hope that they’ll close the show with “Freebird!”
