Remember this gem from the 80's? Jeremy had one growing up. Speaking of which, it's his birthday today.

Happy Birthday Brother! (and I didn't even have Facebook to send me a reminder for it)

Saturday Morning Samoflange Episode 14

In this episode we talk about Top 5 Best and Worst Movie remakes.

July Movie Preview

Whew! Barely made it before July started, so here we go!

 Ant Man

Glad they got Pau Rudd for this one or I would've missed it. Looks pretty good. Should b an enjoyable flick.
 Minions

I know I shouldn't want to see this but I do.

I really do.
 Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation

Can't WAIT for it to come out! One of the most anticipated films of the year for me!

Terminator: Genisys

Nope. No interest whatsoever. If the Mrs. wants to see it I may go but other than that I'm fine missing out on it.

See ya!

Princes of the Universe Episode 23



Just like "Samoflange", I decided to give you a video version of "Princes" to try out. Enjoy!

What happend to toy guns?!

 
I know this post is more of me wanting to gripe than it actually making sense but I felt the need to address it so I'm doing it here.

The toy gun. As kids we had a great time playing with them, but as time went on, safety concerns increased and sadly toy guns started looking like this.

I remember all toy guns weren't like this in stores at the time, so we searched for one without the orange tips on it because we thought they looked stupid. As the year went by however, it got harder and harder to find until they were all carrying the dreaded "orange tip"

A lot of the kids in the neighborhood "fixed" that but using a screw driver and a hammer to break it off. You ran the risk o destroying the gun point but to some of us, it was worth it.
 

 Take the Han Solo gun for instance. Back in the day my friends older brother had one and it looked awesome. When I heard they were reprinting it again in the late 90's I couldn't wait to pick up one for myself when it came out. But this is what we got:
I HATED it. It looks horrible and is a bigger eye sore than joy to look at. I've always wanted to spray paint it black but never got around to doing it.

I know it's for safety concerns these days but I really don't like the way toy guns look these days.

Ok, hopping off the soap box now. C-ya tomorrow folks!

Survivor Fun Facts

Did you know I've been a fan of Jeff Probst ever since his days on Rock N Roll Jeopardy? Yep, that was his gig before Survivor came about. Wild huh?

Did you also know for $6 a month CBS All-Access let's you stream ALL 30 SURVIVOR SEASONS?! I'm planning on getting it soon.

Have a good weekend folks, I'm done talking about Survivor for a while!

Survivor San Juan Del

Do I really have to talk about last years? Ok, I'll do it. As you know, Natalie Anderson won and it was the 3rd time I've ever guessed the winner from the first episode correctly.

I didn't like her on the show but she deserved the win for how smart she played everyone on the island and made herself a lock for the win.

I'll admit I was a little bummed they didn't bring back past season contestants but seeing how well the new ones turned out I'm glad they did it this way.

Missy and Baylor I hate almost as bad as Parvati, I felt sorry for John being around Jaclyn so much and the Christy brothers love fest with themselves was too funny!

I liked seeing John Rocker on the show but his anger got the better of him again and he was voted out quick but my all time favorite for the season was Keith who I really hop gets his 2nd chance soon.

Fun Fact:

I'm not doing a review of season 30 because it just ended and doesn't need one. Have a good day people!

Survivor Cagayan


Tony Vlachos did what he said he was gonna do the whole time and won Survivor. I couldn't believe he did it either!

This season the tribes were divided into three groups. Brain vs Beauty vs Brawn and I thought it worked well!

The Brains shot themselves in the foot the entire time. The Brawn fought and Beauty somehow always managed to make it through.

From Brawn you saw Lindsay give up once Clifford got voted off, Sarah peg Tony for a cop from the very beginning without even knowing his background. Cool Yung and annoying Trisha.

Brain had the Idiot award in their fold with Kassandra, who was so stupid about the game I wondered why she was put on the "Brains" team in the first place. The only good guy to come out of this group is Spencer and I hope he comes back. He was an awesome player and the person I'd like to see return the most from this season.

Beauty had losers almost all the way through. Brice was a diva, Jeremiah a flopper who no one could trust and Morgan. Who if I ever see may have to take heat from my Mom when I slap the taste out of that girls mouth. LJ was the only decent one in there group.

Fun Fact:

Before making it on the show, Spencer had applied 3 other times to get on Survivor but Jeff kept saying "No" because he didn't think Spencer had a chance at being interesting of winning this game. And he came very close to being wrong as you saw Jeff publicly apologize to Spencer during the Reunion show. I hope they bring him back!
