  • BCS Knockout, Enema Fun and Abe from Deftones

    We kicked off the week with a Punch to the Face via Big J's fist, which came as a knockout straight to the shady system known as the BCS. For years, teams like Boise State have been snubbed by this system of computer generated college football rankings for reasons unkown. The system is composed of six computers, all of which have a particular protocol for crunching numbers, however they are not allowed to release all of the exact details on how each computer determines their respective rankings. College football is one of the only team sports that does not determine a champion based on a true playoff system. Every player on every team in every sport should have some sort of shot at competing for a Championship. If they aren’t cut out to win, then they will simply lose in the playoffs, but should at least get that one chance. Hence March Madness: one of the most popular and exciting playoff systems in the history of sports. As long as you win your conference, no matter how big or small, you automatically get a bid into the tournament. Why not do the same thing for football? Oh yeah, because college football is all about money and corruption, not about the purity of collegiate competition.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, All That Remains and The Morning After Makeover

    This week’s Life Lesson, courtesy of radio’s Big J, is to keep calm and stay out of trouble. The lesson comes at the hands of a trip to Ann Morrison Park where a “frolf” disc flew in front of his car the other day. As he drove past the disc instead of stopping, a hippied out “frolfer” became upset and reacted with a display of utter disgust. Instead of stopping to fight the kid as Big J of the past might have done, he kept calm and “chived on.” (Big J's own words) Plus, as he also stated on the show, he would have treated the kid like a “grizzly bear would a man.”

  • Johnny Depp, Boxee TV and Katie Aselton (The League)

    On this week’s Tech Tour, Big J introduced Boxee TV. This device is like a combination of all your favorite streaming devices into on box. Check out how it works below and all the info you need right here. In movie news, Expendables 2 on Blu-Ray hits shelves on November 20th and will be the first movie ever to have 11.1 Channel DTS audio.

  • Movie Review, Matthew Lillard and a Supergroup Takedown

    It was another battle for the Deftones on Cage Match today. It took a few solid blows to defeat a supergroup made up of Tom Morello, Serj Tankian and Tim from Rise Against, but your Deftones pulled it out. Below is a glance at today's Challenger, tune in tomorrow to check out your Champion (and maybe win some tickets to their show along with a meet and greet).

  • Big J's Movie Pick, Another Announcement and Deftones

    During this week’s installment of DVDumbass, Big J selected to watch “The 12 Dogs of Christmas: The Great Puppy Rescue” over “Rosewood Lane” and “People Like Us.” A little audible at the line of scrimmage, replacing the word “dogs” with “friends” is what lured Big J into picking this one. Can’t wait for tomorrow’s review on this one!

  • Big J's Punch, Tony Danza and Boob Booze

    Today's Punch to the Face courtesy of radio's Big J goes out to all the Kansas City Chiefs fans that decided to cheer as their Quarterback, Matt Cassell, went down with an injury during Sunday's game. Now being a poor sport is one thing, but cheering for an injury is down right ridiculous and quite frankly a shame to sports around the globe.

  • Hulk Hogan's Sexcapade, Maggie Grace (Taken 2) and a Free X Show

    Today's Bad Impression came courtesy of Hulk Hogan. He's in the news because apparently a sex tape of him was recorded without his knowledge and "blasted" (no pun intended) all over the interwebs. Usually, I like to post links into these blogs, but um, I will let you embark upon your own discoveries on this one, brother.

  • Tech Tour, Shipping Wars and a New Champion

    During Big J’s Tech Tour, we learned about Aurasma. Created by Autonomy Corporation, Aurasma is primarily designed for 3G and 4G mobile devices and it uses the device's video camera to recognize pre-trained images and overlay an image or video so that the video tracks as the camera is moved. In more basic terms, this technology allows you to take a picture of an object and it bring up videos pertaining to that particular object. Or just ignore this entirely and watch the video below.

  • Bad Impressions, Battleship and Corey Taylor

    Corey Taylor of Slipknot and Stone Sour made an appearance on the show this morning. We had the opportunity to catch up with him back stage at Rock Vegas. He talks to us aboutabout all the kinds of awesomeness that you would expect from Corey Taylor. Catch that full interview right here.

  • DVDumbass, Papa Roach and Cage Match Upset?

    Jacoby and Tony from Papa Roach joined us on the show today to discuss their new album, “The Connection,” which hits shelves today. Check out the full interview right here and watch their video for "Still Swingin" below.

  • Punisher Punch, Chum Lee and Avenged Sevenfold

    Big J’s Punch to the Face goes out to actor Thomas Jane today. While the fellas were in Vegas over the weekend, they attended a comic convention to hunt him down in the flesh with full hopes to chat it up with The Punisher. Well, when they approached him with “Hey Thomas, we are from a radio station in Boise, Idaho that interviewed you on our morning show awhile back.” His response, “Oh, cool.” After complete deflation and embarrassment, The Morning After walked away defeated. But, here we are with the upper hand, punching Thomas Jane right in the face! Bamm!

  • Aaron Paul, Big J Jaw-Jack and Hemp Fest

    Today’s Bad Impression goes out to Boise’s own Aaron Paul. Last night, Aaron took home his second Emmy Award for his supporting role in Breaking Bad.

  • Boise State Victory, Big J's Life Lesson and Growing Change

    Morning After News: your Boise State Broncos pulled away with a “W” in a true nail biter on the blue turf last night. The boys in blue once again failed to score a single point on offense, but thanks to a stellar defensive performance and a beast named Michael “Bacon” Atkinson, they pulled in a pick-six, giving them a 7-0 lead on BYU. With just a few minutes left on the board, BYU punched in a TD of their own, bringing the score to 6-7. Going with a very ballsy move and aiming for the win, Bronco Mendenhall called for a two-point conversion. One incomplete pass and a bunch of white-knuckled onlookers later, your Boise State Broncos pulled in a 7-6 victory, moving their record to 2-1. Up next? The New Mexico Lobos @ 4PM in Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 29th.

  • Bad Impressions, The Red Light Variety Show and X-Fest

    Today’s Bad Impression pulled in another victim this morning. Actually, I think we are the victims for having to talk about Lindsay Lohan. She was just arrested for a hit and run in New York. Can this woman not stay out of the news? C’mon man! So instead of posting a photo of of her, I decided to go with something a bit more pleasant. You know, kind of like how they throw in images of flowers between slides of those STD videos from high school.

  • Walter White in Texas, Hysteria and Pat Mac

    Morning After News: In sports, the NFL replacement refs are under heavy scrutiny, especially after a two hour first half during Monday Night Football this week. In music, a rumor is out that Pearl Jam and Soundgarden might go on tour together sometime next year. They both have new discs on the way and Matt Cameron bangs the drums for both bands, so it would only be fitting for this tour to happen. If they come to Boise, I might need a change of underwear. A teacher from a high school in East Texas, William Duncan, was caught cooking and selling meth on school property in true “Breaking Bad” fashion. As I got deeper into the series, I knew it was only a matter of time before people started trying to mimic the show. It's television people! Come on, you aren't Walter White.

  • DVDumbass, Ambush Tactical and Retirement?

    Today, Big J selected a flick called “Hysteria” on DVDumbass from a pool of three movies including “The Magic of Belle Isle” and “Salvation Boulevard.” So, tonight from the comfort of his own couch, Big J will be learning about the origin of the female sex toy. Tune in tomorrow for a full on review of that.

  • Big J's Punch to the Face, Chrome at the Home and Cage Match

    Big J’s Punch to the Face goes to a woman named Jennifer Worick for writing a book called “Things I Want to Punch in the Face.” He’s quite flustered over the fact that someone else wrote this book and claims that every idea in the book was stolen directly from him. Since he refuses to punch a woman in the face, he will give the book a good ol’ sucker punch. The next Big J brilliant idea that will probably get stolen before he does anything about it? “Beardom,” a website that sells beard care products and cruises around in a beard themed RV. You know, like a creepy ice cream truck, but with beard care products. For some reason, I keep picturing Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal.

  • Jaw-Jacked, Free X Show and a Bloodbath

    We were the first to bring you the announcement of another Free X Show. New Medicine will be taking the stage of the Knitting Factory on Friday, October 5th. Tune in right here for your FREE tickets!

  • Important Things, Theo Rossi and Hellyeah

  • Nose Bite, 6 Bullets and Fantasy Football Recaps

    A 29-year-old gal and her husband were out dancing Saturday night in Houston, Texas before flesh biting took place.
