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!
