TMA Halloween Edition: Safety Not Guaranteed, Best Screams in Rock and Malcolm McDowell

  • Print

Let’s kick of Halloween with a birthday, shall we? Happy Birthday to Rob Van Winkle aka Vanilla Ice who turns 44-years-old today. You can catch his show “The Vanilla Ice Project” on the DIY Network or pick up his latest album, “WTF – Wisdom, Tenacity & Focus,” which is currently in stores.

During this week’s version of DVDumbass, Big J watched and reviewed a flick called “Safety Not Guaranteed.” The movie is about a magazine writer who finds a classified ad from someone looking for a partner to time travel with. Mark Duplass (The League) is the time travel enthusiast who attempts to build a time travel machine and the plot unfolds from there. It’s safe to say that “Safety Not Guaranteed” is officially Big J approved. Go check it out at your local Redbox.

As a part of our Halloween show, we broke down the “Best Screams in Rock” on a song-by-song basis. Thrown in the mix were screams by the boys of Tenacious D, Phil of Pantera, Chris Cornell of Soundgarden & Audioslave, M. Shadows of Avenged Sevenfold, Axl Rose, and many more great rock screamers. Go cast your opinion as to your all-time favorite rock scream right here.

Today’s GTH story features a strip joint in Texas named Hot Bodies. On Saturday, one of the dancers, Victoria Perez, started throwing her high heels at innocent bystanders in the building, which turned into a full on stripper brawl. Detectives did not find out exactly what fueled the ruckus, but apparently it was rumored to have something to do with one stripper borrowing make-up from another. How has there not been a television series based on what happens behind the curtains at strip clubs? I might have to pitch that idea to The Discovery Channel.

The Halloween Edition of The Morning After continued with a phone call from the one and only Malcolm McDowell this morning. He’s been in a plethora of films, television shows and even Slpknot’s music video for the song, “Snuff.” You might recognize him from “A Clockwork Orange,” Rob Zombie’s “Halloween” movies, HBO’s hit series “Entourage,” or even the brand new “Silent Hill: Revelation 3D,” which is actually out in theatres right now. You know you’re cool when you have an English accent, appear in a Slipknot music video and become friends with the lead singer of AC-DC. True story. He talks about that and more right here.

Happy F’n Halloween!

Nic - II    Big J - I

Monday - Happy Birthday Peter Loeffler! Hard to pick a favorite Chevelle song which is probably why there was a tie between Anj's choice of The Clincer and Big J's choice of Send the Pain Below. Tie it is.  

Tuesday -  Songs that could use subtitles that make sense?  The tie goes to Nic with his choice of Pearl Jam Yellow Leadbetter although Big J's choice of Static X Cannibal was just as inaudiable.

Wednesday -  Happy Birthday Spike Jones!  Thank You for the awesome videos you gave us. Today's rock war ends in yet ANOTHER TIE.  Nic's choice of Tenacious D Wonderboy beats Big J's choice of Beastie Boys Sabotage.  Hard to chose for sure but somebody has to come out victorious. 

Thursday -  Reality shows are everywhere!  What band would you tune in to watch week after week?  Big J wins with All that Remains Stand up beating Nic's Puddle of Mudd Give me Shelter choice. 

Friday - In honor of Mark Zuckerberg delivering a speech in Chinese we will war with bilingual songs. Big J's Romstein America beats out  Nic's Beck Loser.
