  • Crooked Arrows, Rich Eisen and Happy Thanksgiving

    Big J’s review of “Crooked Arrows” was, well, there wasn’t much to this movie. It was basically Mighty Ducks, but with high school lacrosse instead of hockey. Needless to say, it took a giant thumbs down from Big J. He did however pick up “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” as well. This one was more on the Big J approved side of things, so go check that out instead.

  • DVDumbass, Free X Show and Song Fights

    During this week’s installment of DVDumbass, Big J selected a movie called “Crooked Arrows” about a high school lacrosse team over “Little Bit of Faith” and “Two Days in New York.” Yes, Big J will be enjoying some high octane lacrosse action from the comfort of his own home later today. That should be an eventful review tomorrow.

  • Kellen Moore and Vayden

    It's only Monday, but two very legendary events took place on the show today.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Robert Irvine and Vayden

    Big J’s Life Lesson is to choose your ringtone wisely and keep your phone on vibrate in certain public places. This lesson arises due to a recent situation where Big J was sitting in a waiting room and his ringtone blasted off about three times before he could get to it. You know, the whole awkward fumbling around of the phone while people are watching as you try to find the right buttons to shut the thing up. Now I will not confirm or deny if Big J’s ringtone is a One Direction song or not, but don’t forget to follow his advice next time you are customizing your phone and get stuck in a meeting or at the movie theatre.

  • Tech Tour Time, Toys for Tots and Jared Harris of Lincoln

    During this week’s “Tech Tour,” Big J brought a pretty cool new smartphone app to our attention. The app, called Vapp, allows you to control your phone’s camera via voice commands. This would come in handy during those solo bathroom duck face shots or when trying to use the timer to take a group photo. The app basically allows you to scream a camera command at your phone without having to push buttons or awkwardly hold it.

  • Snakepits, Lizard Lick Towing and Pizza Slices

    Headlines for this morning consisted of an Indianapolis man who full on crashed his vehicle into a house after downing five beers and munching on a slice of pizza while trying to drive. Upon smashing into the home, the owners came out and the driver’s response was, “you guys want a slice of pizza?” Only in America folks.

  • DVDumbass, Vote Villain and James Remar

    During today’s “Headlines,” we traveled to Wisconsin, where two men went into a store with plans of robbery. Well, after taking money from the cashier and then feeling bad about it after a guilt trip from the clerk, they gave the money back. Upon reconciliation, the store ended up with a dollar more than before the men came in to rob it. Yep, the robbers added a dollar of their own into the mix.

  • Ties = Dumb, Robert Patrick and UFOs

    Some “Important Stuff” to start your week: more than one hundred UFO’s have been spotted on the India-China border, but are most likely just Chinese lanterns. Find out more here. In sports, Joe Southwick led the Boise State Broncos to a 49-14 victory over the Hawaii Warriors in Hawaii on Saturday. Texas A&M knocked off #1 Alabama 29-24. As a result, Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame now sit atop the BCS standings. In music, we learned that Soundgarden is set for a new tour, but will not be stopping here in Boise. This could very well be worth taking a road trip to Seattle.

  • Dethroned iPhone, Blood Drinking and New Tunes

    Today’s Bad Impression goes out to Mark Wahlberg. Marky Mark is in the news today because an official announcement was released that he will be the star of Transformers 4. I still vote to bring back Megan Fox.

  • Nerd Repo, Jersey Shore with Pete and Marilyn Manson

    Today Brent from NerdRepository.com gave us a phone call to chat about the new direction of Star Wars. As most of you know by now, George Lucas sold the rights to Star Wars to Disney. Brent gave us some insight and thoughts as to what we might be able to expect from Star Wars in the future, including the upcoming sequels. He also checked out a special screening of Lincoln last night as did our friend Nic and they both claim that it’s bound to win just about every award imaginable. Check out trailer below and catch the film in theatres this weekend.

  • Arthur Christmas, Social Media Chaos and The Darkness

    As Big J’s revenge on DVDumbass this week, I (RoboRandy) was stuck watching an animated children’s Christmas movie called “Arthur Christmas.” The storyline was about Santa Claus delivering the perfect Christmas, minus one thing; he forgot just one girl. So, Santa’s son, Arthur, decides to save Christmas for the little girl and embarks on a journey around the globe, full of trials and tribulations. To make a long and boring story short, I fell asleep twice during the film and got some weird looks from my roommate when he came home and caught me watching an animated kid’s flick all by myself. However, the animation was great and I’d recommend the movie for anyone with kids.

  • Big J's Revenge, Python Whip and Doug Martin's New Nickname

    Today’s GTH story comes from Massachusetts (not Florida), where a man was arrested on counts of battery with a dangerous weapon and cruelty to animals after whipping his girlfriend with a python in the hot tub. Yes, the reptile snake, not his man-snake. Well, now he’s in prison where there will be plenty of snake whipping. It’s only fitting, right?!

  • Danielson, Punch Out and Doug Martin

    Today’s Bad Impression comes courtesy of Ralph Manchio today. That’s right, the Karate Kid is 50-years-old. Happy Birthday Danielson!

  • Big J's Marriage Rule #52, Nadine Velazquez and Laces Out, Finkle

    During "Life Lessons" today, we learned about Big J’s Marriage Rule #52 – How to get out of doing things. On Halloween night, Big J was in the middle of a James Bond marathon when trick or treaters continued to knock at the door, rudely interrupting his movie experience. So, instead of giving each kid just one piece of candy, he was tossing it out by the handful. Smart move. Since there was a high volume of kid traffic and a limited amount of candy, the wife was forced to suspend Big J’s trick or treater duties. Thereafter, whenever there was a knock at the door, he was told just to stay put and enjoy his movies. Boom! The lesson is that if you really want to get out of something, do it horribly while still being genuine about it. If only that same lesson applied to the workplace, right?! Oh, wait.

  • Big J's Tech Tour, Toys for Tots Ride and The Flat Earth Society

    Today's Bad Impression goes out to Sir George Lucas. Earlier this week, we learned that Mr. Lucas decided to sell the Star Wars rights to Disney for a whopping $4 billion. Well, we also just learned that upon close of the sale, he will be donating a large portion of that money to education. Well done George, well done.

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

    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.

  • DVDumbass, Kate Ashfield and Kiss?

    For this week’s version of DVDumbass, Big J will be taking home a film called “Safety Not Guaranteed, starring our buddy Mark Duplass from The League. Based on the movie descriptions from the back of the box, he willingly passed on “Redlights,” starring Robert DeNiro and a film titled “Take this Waltz.” Check out a preview of “Safety Not Guaranteed” below and catch Big J’s full movie review tomorrow morning after Bad Impressions during the 6 o’clock hour.

  • Bad Impressions, Hurricane KO and Richard Riehle

    Today’s Bad Impression goes out to Winona Ryder. She turns 41 today and still looks pretty darn fantastic. You can find her voice as Elsa Van Helsing in the movie "Frankenweenie" and she is currently busy filming a flick called "Homefront," which will be released sometime in 2013.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Eric Peronnard and Do-It-All Doug

    During Sports with Pete, we discussed some Thursday Night Football action where "Do-It-All" Doug Martin represented Bronco Nation in a huge way. The rookie running back pulled in 214 total yards and 2 touchdowns, including a career-high 135 yards on the ground and 79 yards through the air on 3 catches. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers rolled over the Minnesota Vikings 36-17 on the road last night as Doug Martin out-rushed one of the greatest running backs of all-time, Adrian Peterson.

  • Tech Tour, Busted Bieber and Mark Duplass (The League)

    Over in Detroit, a Michigan man has officially sued Justin Bieber on multiple allegations. The man claims to be the father of Bieber’s long-time girlfriend, Selena Gomez, and states that the pop star stole $426.78 from him so that he could get a penis enlargement, but then failed to pay the money back. He also makes a number of other outrageous (yet awesome) claims, including a story about the Biebs stealing his credit card to purchase cocaine so that he and Sean aka “P-Diddy” or “Puff Daddy” or “Puffy” Combs could use it in drug-free school zones. Usually we don’t speak the words Justin and Bieber, but this story is simply fantastic. Can’t wait to find out how this all unfolds.
