Friday the 13th


Yeah I Remember That...

On Friday, February 13, 2015, something happened… an event that will live on forever… Basically, we decided “Hey we should do a show about Friday the 13th!” But it was too late, so we waited until Friday the 13th in March and a few weeks later here you go. (The internet will live forever BTW)

Did you know there are 3 occurrences of Friday the 13th this year? Did you know that won’t happen again for 11 years and only happens on non-leap years when New Year’s Day is on a Thursday? Did you know the irrational fear of Friday the 13th is called friggatriskaidekaphobia? Did you know Jason Voorhees was not originally intended to be the main character in the movies at all? Wow, you don’t know very much do you?

Star Trek TOS Pt. 2 – RIP Spock


Yeah I Remember That...

In part two of our Spocktacular Star Trek podcast, we break down the movies starring the original cast. Well, we mainly talk about Wrath of Khan and how great it was. We also recap and compare Star Trek movies 1 – 6, including more obscure facts. Finally, Pierre tries to stump Travis and special guest David with Trekkie trivia and fails miserably, leading one to naturally question how active our social lives really were in high school.

LLAP (for all you non-Trekkies, that stands for “Listen, Laugh And Ponder-the-meaning-of-your-existence-in-this-vast-emptiness-of-space-otherwise-devoid-of-life-and-any-apparent-purpose).

Episode 9 – Video Games: Past, Present, and Future


Yeah I Remember That...

Super Nintendo, Sega Genesis
When I was dead broke man I couldn’t picture this…

Who are we kidding? We had all of those systems. In fact, we were practically raised by video games. This is why we swore long-ago our first-born sons would be named “Link” or “Shinobi.” (Fortunately neither of us have sons… at least not that we know of. I tried to name one of my daughters Zelda but for some reason my wife vetoed it).

In the first half of this two part extravaganza, we chronicle the earliest days of home consoles starting with the wonderful Intellivision. We then evaluate two decades worth of video game history in about 20 minutes (impressive, right?). Pierre explains why he always has been and always will be a gamer (who needs a social life?) Travis then says the complete opposite and labels himself a “last-gen gamer.” Join us for an 8-bit stroll through…
