  • Tech Tour, Pizza Perfume and Yelp Sued

    Jack Black was hand-selected from a list of the “Top 10 Overpaid Actors" as today’s “Bad Impression.” That list also includes Eddie Murphy, Katherine Heigl, Reese Witherspoon, Sandra Bullock, Nicolas Cage, Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Denzel Washington and Sara Jessica Parker.

  • Stolen, Worst Wife Gifts and Find Santa's Sack

    During this week’s installment of DVDumbass, Big J once again selected another winner with a movie called “Stolen” over “Hope Springs” and “Thunderstruck.” This movie features Nicolas Cage so it can’t be too awful right?! Find out during tomorrow’s show.

  • Important Stuff, BCS Busted and Pissed Pantera

    A few bits of “Important Stuff” we learned this morning: there are talks of the government doing away with the dollar bill and transitioning over to dollar coins. For the record, Big J strongly supports this movement, while the rest of the country most likely will not. In entertainment news, the creator of Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane, will lend his voice to an upcoming episode of The Simpsons. After all the back and forth stabs at one another, it appears both sides are coming together to boost ratings for Fox in this interesting turn of events.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Half the World and Toys for Tots

    Big J taught us a little something today during this week’s “Life Lesson.” That is, to sometime relax and not always go with your first instinct. Last night before Thursday Night Football, he tried to make a last minute Fantasy Football lineup change, but it was too late as roster management was already locked. Well, turns out that the player who was locked up, actually performed better than the one he wanted to put in. There you have it. Sometimes it pays off to be patient and just let things happen.

  • Big J's Tech Tour, O-Face and Scoot McNairy

    During this week’s “Tech Tour,” Big J brought two interesting items to our attention. First, a computer program called Random Shopper, which selects and purchases random gift using gift cards. Although it’s a unique idea, I’m not entirely sure that I’d want to end up giving someone a Hannah Montana DVD and book about bird watching as a gift. Next, we learned about a new Apple device called iTV ($100), which is an old school television antenna that plugs directly into your iPad and allows you to watch standard channels on your iPad’s screen. Now that’s something worth looking into.

  • Man of Steel, Headshot Review and Kim Jong-Onion

    Today’s Bad Impression featured The Man of Steel. Why? Because there have been all kinds of rumores surround the new Superman film, including no red briefs as a part of his costume and even maybe an appearance from Batman to introduce the character for the upcoming Justice League movie. Just for the record, that means we will see a whole new Batman, a brand new Superman and all kinds of other characters. It should be interesting to see what unfolds.

  • DVDumbass, Dennis Christopher and Vial8

    During Cage Match, we learned all about Big J’s hatred for the band name, Vial8 and how he can’t stand a number being used in place of a word. Speaking of Vial8, they knocked off Vayden today. But no worries, you will see much more of Vayden as our 2012 Cage Match Madness tournament starts next Monday, December 3rd.

  • Big J's Bag of Broken Chips, Jack Passion and Vayden's Memo

    This week’s “Punch in the Face” went to Tostitos for two reasons. First, for the talking bag which Big J cannot stand and second, for still continuing to air election commercials weeks beyond the event. But thank you Tostitos for all the awesomeness that came from experiencing Boise State win two Tostitos Fiesta Bowls.

  • Big J's Life Lesson, Black Friday is Dumb and an X Session Weekend

    Big J’s Life Lesson today was about how sometimes you have to make sacrifices and step up to the plate in life. On Wednesday, we had the band Halestorm come into the studio to do a station takeover. They are great people, Lzzy looked fantastic as always, but there was one thing missing. Radio’s Big J was busy doing family errands while the wife was at work, so he had to make the sacrifice. At the end of the day, family should always come first, folks.

  • 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.
