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 125: Tom Bombadil Ain’t In This One, Either

Saturday, April 2nd, 2016

Settle down in your favorite little Hobbit hole and break out some lembas bread, as it is time for Geek Salad to venture into Middle Earth with episode 125: Tom Bombadil Ain't In This One, Either.Yes, not even the godfather of all nerd culture, Tolkien, is safe from the Geek Salad crew, this time consisting of Ranger Andy, his Elvish maiden Autumn, Rider of Rohan Joe, and Man of Gondor Mike.

The crew take on the books (ever so briefly as they can be a bit... what's the word... boring), the animated specials (which can be a bit... '70s), and finally all six of Peter Jackson's films. They cover the good and the bad, as well as a discussion on the excessive nature of turning The Hobbit into 3 films.

(Oh, and in case you're wondering, yes, episode 126 was posted before 125. Technical issues, combined with the need to get the wrestling show out by WrestleMania, meant that 126 had to go up in a more timely manner)

Episode 121: Pixar - Don’t Blame Us For Planes!

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

There was a time when 3D animated films were the stuff of rumors and legends. And then came Pixar! With Pixar's 16th film, The Good Dinosaur, just a few days away from release, the Geek Salad crew is looking back and ranking the 15 previous films in Geek Salad episode 121: Pixar - Don't Blame Us For Planes!

Andy, Mike G, Joe, and Katherine go through the list of Pixar films, from Toy Story to Inside Out and see where they are ranked according to ratings sent in by Geek Salad listeners... and anyone else who they could beg a list from. So which one came in first and which one came in dead last. The latter is fairly easy to figure out (hint: it rhymes with "Mars 2").

Episode 117: Mayor Goldie Wilson’s Goldie Oldies (Part One)

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

1985 may seem like just any other year, but when you get a good look at it, the year yielded some of the biggest classic movies of not only the 80’s, but in cinema.  Now the team at Geek Salad is going to recap them in Part One of Episode 117:  “Mayor Goldie Wilson’s Goldie Oldies!”

 

Since we went long, we will cover the massive amount of Facebook and Twitter feedback next week in Part Two.

 

Also, please excuse the technical snafus, as I think the running air conditioner in the background may have made mischief with our audio!  But we had a good reason…it was hot!!!

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!

Episode 102: Infinite Crisis in the Age of Ultron

Thursday, September 11th, 2014

The battle lines are drawn! The normal unity of the Geek Salad crew is shattered! What could possibly cause such a rift? Why Marvel vs DC, of course. It's Geek Salad episode 102: Infinite Crisis in the Age of Ultron. It's Andy, Mike G, and special guest Katherine for Marvel, Joe and Mike C for DC, and Jim being the great and powerful Oz... or maybe just the moderator. Will Marvel come out on top? Will DC triumph? Who cares as long as it's entertaining!

Episode 95: Don’t Cross the Streams

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

30 years ago, a series of movies that were released that still resonate with the Geek public today.  30 years ago, we introduced the world to bananas in tailpipes, ritual heart removal, unlicensed/untested nuclear accelerators, and the PG-13 rating.  Now, the team of Andy and Mike G (along with special guests Joe and Autumn) parse the spectrum of the best movie year of the 80's.  Join in as they discuss (again) Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Dune, and Star Trek III, as well as new (old) favorites like Amadeus, Beverly Hills Cop, and, of course, Ghostbusters.

 

Then stick around for the Geek Salad review of The Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, and some shills involving books, video games, the WWE Network, and a new musical about the EnglishShipBuilding industry in the 1960's!
