Bored Shenanigans Podcast – Episode 75

Leonard Nimoy is no longer with us so we talk about him for awhile. And then after that we have problems answering any questions we ask each other. I vaguely remember something about the sexual orientation of candy bars, a woman loses something way stranger than her marbles in a parking lot, Biblical slang, and Willy Wonka vs. Mary Poppins there can be only one.

Episode 75 Notes

I would like to quote the uploader of this video because it is the best description that this could ever have.

“Sometimes, a body gets a hankering that only Leonard Nimoy singing about hobbits while surrounded by 60’s pixie chicks can sate. Fortunately, we live in a world where those hankerings need not go unfulfilled!” – SputnikMonkey’s channel – youtube

Did we just cross our own line on what we will do on this show?

We say quite a few things that we wish there was some possible way of removing from this world. If only that could be so; if only there was a way for you not to hear them. Other than that things follow the usual podcast format that you have grown to love over the years. Cody goes blind and gets inked up. Brewer imparts wisdom on how to pun.

Also in this episode we show how similar we are to Hawkeye on M*A*S*H by covering up bad feelings with dirty jokes. Such as, what you do you prefer paper or cloth when it comes to cleaning up personal messes? The most wonderful product we have ever seen: the AutoBlow 2 and its fantastic marketing is discussed. Cody also wants to know what it is called when you are sexually attracted to plants.

Here are some Quotes from him.

 “I continually hope that someday I’ll get a chance to pass on everything I’ve learned. There hardly seems a moment considering living by my words only means having absolutely no time to say them. So at least I can take a moment in slight to utter in passing.”

“It is my philosophy in life, much like my movies, to jump first, then figure it out on the way down.”

“The problem with living your dream, on the off days when you need a break. The escape you’re looking for is from yourself. In which there is none.”

“I don’t like saying fans, I’d rather to say friends. Fans are just friends I haven’t met yet.”

“When I didn’t feel like I was making enough of a difference. The harder part of living in this world is living with only being able to make small ripples of change, but ripples enough that eventually we will make our own tidal wave. A wave of hope for others that can reach around the world and touch people past barriers of language or culture.”

“Never let anyone tell you that something is impossible.”

“To plan and plot success seems such a devilish necessity, and not really me. I Don’t really think too far ahead. Only thing I know how to do is work as hard as I can, and hope that my skills are enough before I hit the ground.”

“Lately I’ve felt we’re all becoming far too complacent. All in all, relax and let people do their thing. don’t like it move on. Don’t let your nostalgia about what something should be ruin it for a new generation”

“the less time I spend talking the more work I get done.”

“Also Haters… you keep doing your standard things. I hope your rigid premise of how things should be will get you far. Ya know, worshipping other peoples ideas wholely as if they were any better than you. Well I guess they are if your mind is so inflexible. Just don’t bring your opinions of what I should or shouldn’t do to my table. Cause I walk over standards for daily.”

“the world looks very different, when you’re pushing yourself every second you’ve got.”

“Being able to deliver on a timely basis might mean making these mistakes and living with it.”

“Do more of the same and you’re not living up to your responsibility to grow as an artist. Break the boundaries and hope you’ll be able to deliver something within reasonable grasp Find yourself somewhere in between, let’s hope I figure out where exactly that is. I’m not really trying to complain, afterall I knew well what I was getting into when I raised the bar for myself. I just hope you know the contrast between better, and different.”

“ about the whole doing things by the books. I never liked the fact that the traditionalist would always argue that everything should be done 100% legitimately. But if that were the case, that would pretty much mean I shouldn’t be where I am now. Imagine if to make my movies I would actually have to spend the actual amount of money on software, license the music, of God knows somehow compose music myself, on top of directing modeling, animating texturing choreographing etc.”

“I’d say it would be a pretty stale existence if people who want to be able to express themselves in my particular manner get tied up in red tape. Oh wait, that was the greater portion of my life before I learned how to cheat.”

“It’s a little saddening to say goodbye just as soon as we met. But I hope fate bring us together again in the future as well as more people I hope to meet as well.”

Welcome to Episode 61: … or hardly working

Carl Sagan Day!! w00t!

Happy Carl Sagan Day Everyone!!!

In honor of this most important holiday here are some good words from the good man’s good books.

Also here is a link to last year’s post for Carl Sagan day where he raps.

 

“Cosmos is a Greek word for the order of the universe. It is, in a way, the opposite of
Chaos. It implies the deep interconnectedness of all things. It conveys awe for the intricate and
subtle way in which the universe is put together.”

“One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It is simply too painful to acknowledge — even to ourselves — that we’ve been so credulous. (So the old bamboozles tend to persist as the new bamboozles rise.)”

“You are worth about 3 dollars worth in chemicals.”

“Every star may be a sun to someone.”

“intellectual capacity is no guarantee against being dead wrong.”

“Knowing a great deal is not the same as being smart; intelligence is not information alone but also judgement, the manner in which information is coordinated and used.”

“We wish to pursue the truth no matter where it leads. But to find the truth, we need imagination and skepticism both. We will not be afraid to speculate, but we will be careful to distinguish speculation from fact. The cosmos is full beyond measure of elegant truths; of exquisite interrelationships; of the awesome machinery of nature.

“Since, in the long run, every planetary society will be endangered by impacts from space, every surviving civilization is obliged to become spacefaring — not because of exploratory or romantic zeal, but for the most practical reason imaginable: staying alive.”

“This vast number of worlds, the enormous scale of the universe… has not been taken into account, even superficially, in virtually no religion, and especially in no Western religions.”

“In some respects, science has far surpassed religion in delivering awe. How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, “This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed”? Instead they say, “No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.”

“In science it often happens that scientists say, ‘You know that’s a really good argument; my position is mistaken,’ and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn’t happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time someting like that happened in politics or religion.

“The Cosmos is all that is or ever was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us—there is a tingling in the spine, a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.

“Our loyalties are to the species and the planet. We speak for Earth. Our obligation to survive and flourish is owed not just to ourselves, but also to that Cosmos, ancient and vast, from which we spring.”

“In every country, we should be teaching our children the scientific method and the reasons for a Bill of Rights. With it comes a certain decency, humility and community spirit. In the demon-haunted world that we inhabit by virtue of being human, this may be all that stands between us and the enveloping darkness.”

There are many hypotheses in science that are wrong. That’s perfectly alright; it’s the aperture to finding out what’s right. Science is a self-correcting process. To be accepted, new ideas must survive the most rigorous standards of evidence and scrutiny…The suppression of uncomfortable ideas may be common in religion or in politics, but it is not the path to knowledge and there is no place for it in the endeavor of science. We do not know beforehand where fundamental insights will arise from about our mysterious and lovely solar system, and the history of our study of the solar system shows clearly that accepted and conventional ideas are often wrong and that fundamental insights can arise from the most unexpected sources.”

“Those worlds in space are as countless as all the grains of sand on all the beaches of the earth. Each of those worlds is as real as ours and every one of them is a succession of incidents, events, occurrences which influence its future. Countless worlds, numberless moments, an immensity of space and time. And our small planet at this moment, here we face a critical branch point in history, what we do with our world, right now, will propagate down through the centuries and powerfully affect the destiny of our descendants, it is well within our power to destroy our civilization and perhaps our species as well. If we capitulate to superstition or greed or stupidity we could plunge our world into a time of darkness deeper than the time between the collapse of classical civilization and the Italian Renaissance. But we are also capable of using our compassion and our intelligence, our technology and our wealth to make an abundant and meaningful life for every inhabitant of this planet.”

We need your help.

Calling all female listeners of the show, we are planning a special episode of the podcast and need your help on the following questions. If you are so inclined please send your answers to us in a message or email. Thanks.
-Are there any circumstances where you think abortion should be offered to a pregnant mother?
-When do you feel life begins?
-Who has the greater right to life: the fetus or the woman?
-Should a father have a say in an abortion?
-Do you support legal abortion clinics?

Welcome to Episode 53: Vote Honest: Vote Shenanigans 2014

Year One

I have been reflecting quite a lot upon what I have learned with this podcast in this first year. It seems as though we have most certainly covered some of our favorite memories and moments yet there is more than just that. With lack of better ways of stating it, I love doing this shit.  Hell I know I speak for both of us when I say that We love doing this shit. All the time, all the sacrifices, and all the the tedium is pretty inconsequential when you are looking back at the one year mark.

Don’t get me wrong, it hasn’t been all roses.  I have gotten confused about audio software more than once and Brewer has to explain it to me. There have been multiple instances where we have had some fantastic idea and it morphed into something even more ridiculous and grandiose only to be forgotten before it is time to record.  Our scheduled date has fallen through and we have to come up with content on the fly more than once. Plus there have been more than a few moments when we truly get under the other’s skin. Stacking this teetering pile of ideas and agenda into  an outlet to be heard has not always been easy.

 

Often times we have been much too involved in the here and now to appreciate the journey, but what a goddamn fun journey it has been. I rarely feel this level of pride in something I have participated in. This has been both cathartic and a method of self improvement. Being able to open up and share some of my thoughts  has certainly served as a method to reevaluate what is worth worrying about. Often times I feel like my best conversations are shared with our illustrious listening audience. They have listened to me cackle until I was going to vomit and get riled up to the point of wanting to spit. You have laughed at my expense as I have been unable to expel a coherent though and hopefully once in a while I have managed a thought or two that has made you think.

All things considered, this has been one fun year and We owe it to our rouges gallery, our subscribers, our casual listeners and of course our vehement dissenters. BS appreciates you all and promises to continue to be bigger, better, faster and more inappropriate as we meander into the future.

5 Songs That Matter Most

Music matters to everyone. We all have those songs that take us back to our youth or to a specific place in our lives. A majestic art that can make us feel everything so deeply and on an almost subatomic level. That being said, I bring to you not only my five favorite pieces of music, but those that mean the most to me. So ready yourselves to disagree as Rank This! Presents Cody’s 5 Songs that Matter most.

5-Fuck Authority– Pennywise
This is a nostalgia choice for me. This is off of their Land of the Free? album and was my first exposure to anything called punk rock. This was my gateway drug into the world of three cords and do it yourself ethos that inhabit a large majority of my musical choice. Before this track, it never occurred to me that you could say this kind of stuff in a song. It opened my eyes to what self expression means and that the rules are merely what you make of them. I love this song as much now as the first time I heard it. A rebellious song that puts it all on front street and challenges the listener to make a change for the better. All in all a fantastic track.

4-God’s Love-Bad Religion 
The most recent choice on the list, this is a song I found a few years ago. This is a song that struck me at a time when I was exploring my own spirituality. God’s Love does a fantastic job of satirically yet insightfully examining one’s faith, especially in the realm of Christianity. I know this will never make a top ten list for Bad Religion songs, but being a big fan of theirs, this song just does it for me.

3-Where Eagles Dare– The Misfits
Let me be clear so there is no confusion, The Misfits are the greatest band of all time. They are far and away my favorite musical choice and cannot stop listening to them and enjoying their work. That being out of the way, Where Eagles Dare is my chosen song of their catalog. This was certainly the hardest pick for me, as I deeply enjoy so much of their music. The chorus of this song makes it, balancing the right amount of fuck you attitude with power to back it up. This song is a perfect manifestation of the horror imagery The Misfits built their legacy upon. A superior song from a phenomenal band.

2-All Apologies-Nirvana
This song is so good it almost physically hurts. Nirvana was such a deeply talented band with some real gems in their albums ,but this is the one I have to choose. Another song I found as a confused loner kid it has managed to grow with me through the years. Covering a large gamete of emotion in a single track, you follow the journey and feel it with every note. This is a necessary song for all humanity, without it who knows where we would be?

1-Paint it Black-Rolling Stones
As far as I am concerned, this is the perfect song. I really have little affinity for the Rolling Stones, but there is some kind of sorcery in this piece. A masterwork of musical arts, this one just never gets old to me. Haunting and beautiful you find yourself at one with the universe when this song plays. It reverberates the frustration and fear of the universe in a few brief moments. A classic in every sense of the word, this my friends is music.

Welcome to Bored Shenanigans.

Welcome to Episode 45: Live Nudes 5: A Good Day to Live Nude 

And if you don’t know what “Live Nudes” means by now its on you to figure it out.

Five Best ‘Murica! movies

America is a vast and diverse land and nearly every angle of it has been represented in cinema. That being said, the following list I feel best reflects the multifaceted sides of the USA. So BS proudly brings you our Rank This! of the Five Best ‘Murica! movies.

5- American Graffiti.

american graffiti

This film embodies all the feelings of youth transcending into adulthood. Taking place in the 60s it follows a group of high school friends as they cruise around their final night before graduation. It reminds us all of those deeply troubling questions of what is life’s next step and where do we go from here. There is most certainly a character in this film you will identify with and it highlights a time in American history that is gone by the wayside.

4- Sling Blade

slingblade

Fuck off if you disagree with me here. Sure it is about mental patient who is released and eventually kills someone. This flick shows some of the obvious flaws in the penal system and the care of mental patients. Whilst that is certainly the low hanging fruit of this choice, it has some moments highlighting redemption and acceptance. It redefines who is the villain and forces the viewer to understand the plight of those often misunderstood and discounted. This is a call to action, showing us how we often act and forcing us to rethink those actions.

3- Lawless

lawless

The eighteenth amendment was a poorly thought out and even more poorly received piece of our history. Prohibition caused much more crime than it ever prevented. This movie follows a tight knit family of moonshiners during the 20s. A period piece that shows the hard times of the era and the corruption between the police and organized crime. This film shows the importance and strength of a community and the loyalty of family.A fantastic movie that shows what a man will do to survive and how that man must evolve once the situation changes around him. This is a work that makes you want to take a stand for your convictions, a neglected notion in our modern era.

2-Ed Wood

ed wood

A biopic film about a man with a dream who couldn’t be denied. The master of trash, Ed Wood was a man with a legacy of films that will endure forever. With cinematic masterworks like Plan 9 from Outer Space, Bride of the Monster, and Orgy of the Dead how can he be denied? With Johnny Depp in one of his best acting roles ever, he shows what sheer will to get things done can accomplish. The American Dream exists in the purist form here. Love him or hate him, you will most certainly remember the path he laid. Ed Wood grasped his piece of history and shows that success is possible with unwavering determination.

1- The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

goodbadugly

If all that is ever left of the human race is this master work, I am happy with that. One of the most perfectly executed cinematic experiences ever, and in spite of it being filmed in Italy this movie says America all over it. Taking place in the midst of the south during the Civil War, this film follows multiple heroes seeking their fortune in west. Whether it was through dishonest or honest means it shows that your destiny is truly in your hands and the good American spirit will conquer bad and ugly. We are a people who wrestled the great frontier and claimed it as our own. This movie is out there to remind us to go seek our adventure in the wilds of life and prosper from the experience.

Legacies

Carpe Diem and “Live everyday as if it were your last” are overly used phrases that have sunk their way into the popular collective to justify poorly thought out decisions. The bar has lowered on their usage as they have wandered from their original intent. So we here at Bored Shenanigans are taking this moment to remind all of us to not be a flaming cunt. People come in and out of our lives impacting us on a variety of levels, so is there really a reason to hold a grudge? Is there really a reason to be an intolerable pain in everyone’s ass? Maybe we should at the very least be civil, as we do not know what piece of our destiny that person will control. The most control you do have is to grasp hold of every moment and make it be one that you can take pride in. We’re not advocating some overly charitable business nor are we demanding that you try to win a citizen of the year award, just try to be a little better. Be better for yourself first of all, then be better for everyone else afterwards. After it is all over with, all you are is a collection of memories. So perhaps we should take the time and responsibility to make them pleasant ones

Hug Your Fucking Mom

So the annual arrival of Mother’s Day has arrived. That day that was sadly invented out of necessity because the human animal is an asshole. We needed a yearly reminder to get us to thank the women who raised us. So here at BS productions we encourage all of you to thank your mom. Give her a hug and some little tchotchke that will make her life better. Tell her thank you for putting up with your shit and helping you figure out all the rough patches. If your relationship is strained, look around and find another woman to thank. Whether it be a wife who mothers your children or simply someone who mentored you, tell that woman thank you. Providing advice and guidance is often a thankless job and we think that dear old mom deserves her just desserts on this day.

Face Off the Next day and Kick-Ass Knowing that you will not Drive Angry to work after a good nights rest on this National Treasure of a pillow.

I am certain I forgot something maybe Cody will stop by and fill it in for me.

 

Product of Your Enviroment

Things bunch up. They combine together to form a gluttonous beast bent on devouring us into the bedlam and chaos. The best laid plans and the kindest of intentions often find themselves lost amid this hellish creature. When confronted by such dragons needing to be slain, remember that you control your own destiny.

If the breeding ground of procrastination and hap hazard schemes has you surrounded, move. Constant entrenchment against co-workers, classmates, neighbors, will take a nasty toll upon us  and should be dealt with accordingly. Habitats of tension and malcontent tend to keep us from our better nature and most certainly keep our achievements less than stellar.

On the other hand, if one makes a genuine effort to control their own dominion in a positive manner and tries to do the same as they travel into the world, surely they will have a marked advantage.

Mostly what I am saying is if someone has cultivated a culture that is positive, don’t be the self-righteous ass wipe who fucks it up for everyone. Also, if you find yourself mired in a cancerous surrounding with little to no hope of things finding a more enjoyable and productive path, get out of there. Whether this entails you escaping it or changing it, you must do what is necessary. Wherever one hangs their hat directly reflects upon them, so if you find yourself shifting eyes side to side to find some type of redeeming quality maybe it is time?

Welcome to Episode 31: Topless Run

If you could not tell we talk about how we spent Saint Patrick’s Day. This Episode has a lot of down force in the rear by the MASSIVE SPOILER attached to our conversation about Boondock Saints. So if you have not seen it yet feel ashamed go watch it or be warned. And if at any point in time during the episode you start thinking we are cool we remedy that with some talk of the Elder Scrolls games.

Also, to explain the title a bit this episode is a bit shorter than normal making it sort of like a To-Go and was recorded spur of the moment and not edited much making it sort of like a Live Nudes

Episode 31 Notes

Boondock Saints; I promise the movie is not as cheesy as the trailer there makes it look.

Boondock Saints II; watch this one second.

Seven Drunken Nights what more could you ask for. Oh yes Seven Drunken Nights in Space!!! that is the logical next step.

This is Malukah, the singer Brewer said he thought was awesome. She does songs from and about video games. Reignite is the one particularly mentioned in the podcast.

Burnout Happens

There is defiantly such a thing as too much of a good thing. This usually is a phrase that is tethered around liquor or lavish money spending but it applies in many fields. Sometimes, responsibilities take your carefully drawn up schedule of time management and throws it squarely in the refuse bin. Try as one might to return back to square one, they are running without any hope of catching it. My meager little bit of advice is simple, enjoy the avalanche. You cannot stop the storm nor will you be able to reconstruct from the point before it. Take a step back, watch the pretty flames dance. Enjoy your time and don’t stress about what could have been. When the fire burns itself out, go in and reassess the situation. Maybe now is time to make a new schedule and begin the process of getting back into a routine. When you are speeding through a flurry of must dos just hang on,it always will slow down. Also remember no fret over lost production,lost time, loss of revenue or for simply not being able to go to that party. It will all come around and settle at the bottom. Hell, in the long run probably for the better.

Three RTS Games to Play Before You Die

Here at the BS production house, we like us some war games. Really like us some war games. Many a precious hour have been wasted fighting one another on the digital battlefield. While we do enjoy several fine first person shooters, our heart will forever belong to those mystical real time strategy games.  So after much debate and without any remorse, we present to our readers…

 

3 RTS Games to Play Before You Die

3) Starcraft

starcraft

The original did it best, plain and simple. There is a reason this is still played in tournaments around the world. To the uninitiated, Starcraft’s campaign throws them into a story involving three warring factions. All three campaign’s allow the player to try each faction and find the one that appeals to them, whether it be the Imperialistic Terran,  the Noble Protoss or the Evil Zerg regime. Each has its own weakness’ and strengths and offers a well balanced system. This is a interstellar delight that should appeal to solo players for it’s story and multiplayers for it’s competitive play. A fantastic game and a great example of real time strategy done right.

2) Command and Conquer: Generals-Zero Hour

zerohour

The expansion to C&C: Generals, this game shined in the shadow of it’s predecessor. Keeping with RTS tradition, the player can chose between the technologically superior USA, the mighty multitudes of China or the ruthless and terroristic GLA. Each campaign does a good job of making you sympathize with a faction and see each one’s strength. The general’s challenge is a personal favorite, forcing you to take on a nine specialists of each faction.  This is easily the game we have logged the most hours on. The ability to have 8 players at once, makes this a LAN party favorite.

1) Conquest: Frontier Wars

frontierwars

Here she is, the creme de le creme of real time strategy games. This game has the most insane AI, the hardest difficulty and the most variety amongst it’s factions. Again with the 3 factions, other than what it said in game via the Terran campaign, little is really fleshed out. The Mantis are a insectoid race devouring worlds in their hive like structure and the Celareons are beings of pure energy, with far superior technology and defensive structures. Learning each style of play through the multiplayer option against computer controlled enemies forces you to learn quickly. A steep difficulty level makes this one of the most fun examples of co-op play available and with just the right amount of lore, allows the players to use their imagination. Never a commercial success, this game’s sequel was cancelled, but was supposed to introduce a fourth race, the lizard like Vyrium who would function much differently than the other three. This game is beyond well done and any fan of strategy games should certainly enjoy time spent with it.

Failed Potential Movie Sequels Part 2

Failed Potential Movie Sequels Returns

We return with a vengeance to bring you the beginning of the list. Without further hullabaloo, here is number 15 to number 1 of our Rank This! movie sequel list.

15-Addams Family Values

This sequel fell so flat. Pancake level flat. Anjelica Houston and Raul Julia reprise their roles as Morticia and Gomez, but this film’s unrelenting desire to make Uncle Fester a comedy relief character runs this film aground.

 14-Fantastic Four: Rise of The Silver Surfer

Well this was the chance for redemption after that abortion of a first film. Sweet hell, this was not it. Blundering their way through the introduction of Silver Surfer and making Galactus a big, glowy cloud really made me regret seeing this movie. 

13-Tremors Sequels(All of them)

Sweet fuck, just stop. The first film was more fun than any movie about giant worms has any right to be. It was sort of call back to the creature feature genre and had a cast of characters you rooted for. Then they just kept making terrible, ponderous films about tunneling worms of death.

12-Mission Impossible 2

The first Mission Impossible was a complex spy film that made the audience think and wonder what Ethan Hunt’s next move would be. The sequel was directed by John Woo and has explosions, motorcycle races, giant explosions, and doves gracefully flying amid gun battles. Not what I had hoped for by any stretch of the imagination. A dumb action film that should have been a tight spy thriller. 

11-2010: The Year We Made Contact

Stanley Kubrick set the bar pretty high. I don’t know that this film ever had a real chance of touching that one. But the director tries so hard to do Kubrickian things and it doesn’t resonate. This is apparent in the ending most of all, which ends simply and leaves the audience craving more, especially after how the first film looked into the mystery of space. 

10-Shrek 2

Shrek turns into a human and donkey turns into a horse. He wants to win back Fiona and wacky antics ensue…..Next!

9-Aladdin 2: Return of Jafar

220px-Returnofjafar

Maybe this is nostalgia leaking in here. I used to really like Aladdin. It was one of my favorite Disney pictures, having more adventure than most of its peers. The sequel was bad. Really bad, rehashing  a lackluster villain in a lackluster revenge plot. Oh and Robin Williams doesn’t play the Genie and it is  painfully obvious. 

8-Pirates of Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest

The first film was so perfect. It set us all up for a franchise of  staggering escapades and did so much to make us like Jack Sparrow. Then this happened and it snowballed into a half-ass’d snooze fest that seemed unable to grasp any of the mystique of the predecessor. 

7-Batman Returns

Why do people like this movie? Other than a top-notch Catwoman, what is good here? I understand the impact and revolution in the first flick, but this was horrendous. Tim Burton created so much atmosphere and scenery, the cast couldn’t help but chew it. Without Christopher Nolan’s trilogy, people would assume that this tripe is Batman.

6-Caddyshack 2

195px-Caddyshack_ii

What is there to say? You take a legendary comedy film’s sequel and insult the audience with it. This film could easily be under a dictionary heading under terrorism.

5-Butterfly Effect 2

190px-Butterflyeffect2dvd

I don’t think the writer of this had ever seen the original. It is Butterfly Effect in name only. The first one was so good, this one was poorly made, poorly acted, and I was dumb enough to take the bait and watch it. I want my time back.

4-Matrix Revolutions

Okay, Reloaded had problems. It did, but this is where the string was pulled and the series unraveled completely apart. Constantly trying to mind fuck us for no real reason, this film plodded along and ended with a standard fare Zion standoff and an unearned ‘what if ‘ending. I wish I had taken the blue pill instead.

3-The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor

220px-The_Mummy_-_Tomb_of_the_Dragon_Emperor (1)

Here it is, this is why I did this list. The first Mummy wasn’t Citizen Kane or anything. It had its problems, but it was fun. It was a loving tribute to The Mummy’s Tomb and Curse of the Mummy’s Hand. It was a great return to a much forgotten monster. I really enjoyed it and do so more upon repeated viewings. The Mummy Returns was not good and neither was the Scorpion King. This should have been awesome, taking the series to a new land and culture with the Terracotta Army and Chinese Emperor’s undead. This could have at least been a diet version of Indiana Jones. They screwed this up so bad and made it just another forgettable action flick and wasting so much potential.

2-Star Wars: Attack of the Clones

Star_Wars_-_Episode_II_Attack_of_the_Clones_(movie_poster)

This is the worst of the prequels and I will not be swayed otherwise. Even with boring podraces and Jar Jar, Phantom Menace was still watchable. Darth Maul was cool, the space battles were fun and the plot tried for something. In this film, Christopher Lee is wasted as a mediocre villain and we watch poorly written romantic dialogue. Apparently Boba Fett is a clone and so are all storm troopers. This cannot be the Clone Wars that Ben Kenobi talked about all those years ago on Tattoine. 

1-Boondock Saints 2: All Saints Day

220px-Boondock_2_poster

I wanted to love this movie and quote it as much as I do the first film. In the BS production house and amongst our friends this is one of our films. We were so ready for this movie to come out. It isn’t bad. It just isn’t the first film. It tries so hard to recapture that lightning, but never seems to. Rocco’s cameo was a nice touch and having Willam Defoe return as Lt. Smeker was great, but I still feel a bit empty. I loved the Focus on Il Duce, but something wasn’t quite there. This series still gets an annual play through on St. Patty’s Day, but All Saints Day just isn’t the saint the first one was.

Failed Potential Movie Sequels Part 1

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Bored Shenanigans’ Rank This! This time we list out those movies that were really disappointing even though they were filled with so much potential. These films still hurt us a little on the inside years later. Enjoy part one, and stay tuned for part two next week.

30-Indiana Jones Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

indy2

It has been well documented on what a boner killer this film is. It rendered all fans of Indy’s return quite flaccid. Some head scratching scenes involving gophers, monkeys, refrigerators and poorly conceived Soviets and aliens all stacked up for a forgettable finish to a proud franchise.

29-Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows

blairwitch2

Remember all those shaky camera shots and intense point of view moments from the first film? Remember how it felt so personal and realistic in comparison to everything else that was out at the time? So in the sequel what if the went as far away from that low-budget edgy style and made it into a generic horror film? You have number 29 on our list.

28-Jurassic Park 3

jurassic3

Fail. How do you fuck up a dinosaur movie? Just put them somewhere and focus on the interesting dinosaurs not the lame ass human drama. This was their chance to redeem themselves after that abysmal Lost World flick. Fail.

27-Lost Boys: The Tribe

This movie sure missed the mark. Everyone likes The Lost Boys and no one liked its sequel. It lacked the fun or adventure of its predecessor and left us feeling empty will with two dried up Coreys.

26-Ghost Busters 2

Okay, Viggo was a pretty kick ass part of this movie. He was a much more interesting villain than Gozer. Then you factor in little Oscar, mood slime, and just a ho hum experience. They had so much to work with and all we got was, meh.

25-Grease 2

Let’s flip the male and female characters changing themselves and swap cars for motorcycles. Other than a funny song about reproduction, this film wasted what could have been another iconic movie.

24-Resident Evil sequels/Silent Hill sequels

I am cheating here a little bit, but this is my list. The original film of these perspective franchises were pretty awesome. Both took their particular worlds and made them frightening. Then the sequels started. They both have steadily declined to the point of almost unbearable.

23-X Men 3: The Last Stand

Enough with the goddamn Wolverine. We get it, he is a bad-ass with claws. This should have been the movie that made the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants shine and allowed the audience to sympathize with their plight. Instead we get to plod through a poorly drawn out Phoenix story.

22-Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

terminator 3

This could have been such a insanely perfect string of sequels. The first one was incredible, the second one surpassed it, and the third tried its damnedest to recreate the T-1000 and give him tits. John Conner sucks in this movie. At least Salvation wasn’t too bad.

21-Halloween 2 (Rob Zombie)

Rob Zombie has proven to be one of the more interesting horror directors. His revision of the first Halloween movie was really enjoyable and demonstrated the range of his cast. It’s sequel fell flat in comparison. It was most certainly a disappointment.

20-The Never Ending Story Part 2

This story should have ended. What the hell was going on in this movie? This had such a convoluted plot with even more characters to develop. I am too confused by this movie to elaborate on it any more.

19- D2: Mighty Ducks

d2

So after a group of rambunctious and rowdy kids learn about teamwork and their coach learns about personal responsibility, in the off season they forget to practice. So what do we do? Learn it all again. Rehashed and lame ass hell, this sequel relied on the tried and true team USA patriotism shtick to manipulate the audience into feeling warm and fuzzy.

18-Back to the Future 2 & 3

Get your hate mail ready folks. I think this film fell pretty far from its predecessor. Two wasn’t terrible and three was almost unwatchable, but with a premise like time travel, I couldn’t develop a taste for the film’s tone. Going for a more campy than thoughtful method, these two seemed to waste Christopher Lloyd as a fantastic mad scientist.

17-Return to House of Haunted Hill

The bar wasn’t set particularly high by the remake of the original, but they certainly had their heart in the right place. Using the name ‘Price’ to honor Vincent Price is a nice touch, but the strange choice to use an idol as the motivation for the things that happened, focusing on gangsters and side characters made the audience scratch their head.

16-S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale

darko

In a way, this movie never needed a sequel. In another way, there was so much lore to the world, it almost begged for one.  This film added absolutely nothing and wasted everyone’s time. With such an over abundance of material to work with and such an intensely loyal fan base, how could you so frivolously fuck this up? Pure and utter wastrel.

Seven Quotes to Live By

This world has been filled beyond the brim with more intelligent people than myself. If it magically became necessary to use other’s words to construct a primer to live by, these are the ones that I would chose. The following quotes are meant to distill things down to the core fundamentals necessary to thrive. So, Rank This Proudly Presents

7

Quotes to Live By

7) “The truth is that all men having power ought to be mistrusted.” -James Madison

This is imperative. One must think for themselves and do whatever they can to educate themselves and see past what construct of governing sovereignty is presented.  Following without question is dangerous, so always ask some questions.

6) “Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.” – Jack Kerouac

Life is filled with too much wonder and mystery to not experience it. Grasping life and experiencing them is why we are all here. Seeing new places, tasting new foods, meeting new people and emerging yourself into other cultures can offer a revived perspective, but can also foster a lifelong memory. It it too short to not seize the moments.

5) “A friend is someone who gives you total freedom to be yourself.” –Jim Morrison

Friendship is a wonderful occurrence. Being able to drop your guard in front of another person and just enjoy each other’s company is a rarity. When you can connect with someone on a level of enjoying a common interest or doing absolutely nothing, don’t let that slip away.

4) “I like to listen. I have learned a great deal from listening carefully. Most people never listen.” – Ernest Hemingway

Shut the fuck up and listen to what others are saying. Other’s opinions, thoughts, beliefs, or fears can be a phenomenal learning experience. Just don’t talk to hear your own voice, listen to what else is around you and pay attention. It is often worth it.

3) “Hope Is The Last Thing To Die” -Japanese proverb

Hope only gives up when you do. As long as you hold out that things will be okay after something difficult arises, they will. Giving up on hope is your choice, when hope is let go things truly are lost. Don’t lose heart. Hang on, it will all work out in the finish.

2) “Happiness is having a large, loving, caring, close-knit family in another city.” -George Burns

Family is the tie that binds us. Whether it be your spouse, your child or your mother, that thread is almost indefinably important. That bond that draws family together instantly in the face of crisis, that bond that is shared among siblings, those memorable vacations and those famous recipes.  This is the core nucleus of who we are that defines us as a person. No other group can drive us as crazy or make us feel as important.

1) “Life grants nothing to us mortals without hard work.”            –Horace

This is the one, this is what it all comes down to. Work hard and you will get somewhere. Work hard and you will achieve whatever your goal is. Work can go along way that talent does not. Step up, stand up, fight and take that dream by the horns. Lackadaisical attitudes do not garner success, diligent work is the key to success.

Bored Shenanigans Podcast – Episode 27

This episode will fall near the top in a list of sexiest Bored Shenanigans episodes. It is nearing Valentines Day (shut up and just go with it) so it’s all about love here, except for the parts of the show that aren’t. If that’s not enough of a tease does the phrase Swiss Cheese Pervert do anything for you?

Welcome to Bored Shenanigans.

Welcome to Episode 27: B.S. Loves You 

Also Cody brings us some, as he calls it, more important news. You be the judge of that are debt ceilings, lead smelting, and education standards lowering more important than girls named Sexy, dumb coffee, and perverts with cheese.

Late…ntines Day

I realize that this post is far too late for Valentine’s Day. It was meant to be posted early, yet at posting it looks closer to almost being a week tardy. I would make apologies for such; but, fuck that I wanted to stay this. 

I know that I am a flawed specimen. I hold no infinite knowledge nor amazing insights. Personal shortcomings notwithstanding, I was asked what my best decision was. When asked I could not help but think of the multitude of good choices I have made have orbited around my wife. From deciding to talk to her for the first time to asking her to dinner that time to pursuing her to asking her to marry me. Those have been some of the smartest moves I have ever made. I believe only those who have experienced that depth of feeling and sheer fascination with another human being can appreciate it when I say this. You know who you are, those of you currently enraptured with a someone in whom you literally place your entire self. To put it simply, when She and I are together, We feel bad ass. We feel invincible.  It is a primal and visceral feeling of need and compassion and desire.That is what Valentine’s Day is meant to be. A celebration of that level of love and commitment. It is more than some lame flowers and a half-ass’d card. It is beyond candy and stuffed animals. It is a reason to embrace that devotion shown and set some time aside to enjoy it.

Also, get your grandma or mother a little something. She did deal with all your shit, a little something will remind her you care.

Overrated Fictional Characters

We have all been there, sitting around listening to someone prattle on and on about what a great character someone was. Barraged by the popular conception and fandom, we find ourselves hearing just a bit too much about the following characters. Without further ado, Bored Shenanigans’ Rank This! presents

The Top 11 Most Overrated Fictional Characters

11- Cinderella.

cinderlla

 YAWN. What a boring character with an over referenced story. The story is supposed to give us all a warm fuzzy and believe that one day wonder and beauty will rain upon us and free us from all our hardships. The original story had some dark elements and is more enjoyable, yet it has been so convoluted and watered down by Disney, it is almost unrecognizable. I never saw what the big deal was here. 

10- Legolas.

legolas

I feel clarification is needed here. In Tolkien’s books, Legolas is a member of the original nine who were to protect the ring. He was an introduction to the world of elves and had a few cool action scenes. He was just a fun background character who served his purpose well. Enter Peter Jackson. I guess, a defined cool character was needed. Someone to make the tween boys yell and the tween girls swoon. Dispensing arrows at a feverish pace, Legolas surfs down stairs on shields, kills large amounts of Orcs and tempts death many, many times. Expanded unnecessarily for the film, at least he gives cosplayers another choice in costuming.

9- Wolf Man. 

wolfman

Though he is considered a cornerstone of the vintage horror genre, he is the weakest.  All props go to Lon Chaney Jr. for an admirable performance, but he holds little sway. He doesn’t have the vexing nature of Dracula, the sympathy of Frankenstein’s monster, the tragedy of The Phantom of the Opera, or even the mystery of the Gill-man. I respect the ingenuity of the make up and effects, but this film is a bit ponderous and the writing of the character never draws us in. Not too bad, just out gunned by others in the category. The most disappointing thing is they had a second chance with the 2010 film, but it did little to add to the universe.

8- Ryu & Ken. 

ken ryu

This is a tie for two characters who are essentially the same. Pallet swapped from the beginning these two have become the face of the Street Fighter franchise. With a field of such diverse and fascinating characters, these were the two that were picked? Give me Vega, Chun Li, Bison, Axel or Akuma any day.

7-Harry Potter.

harry potter

Too bad there isn’t a magic spell to make you be less of a whiny little bitch. Harry Potter constantly takes on tasks bigger than he can handle and then puts himself or others in peril. A dramatic pre-madonna he takes the role of lone savior much too far and must be bailed out by his much more interesting and well drawn out supporting characters. Gifted with a well written universe and a well thought out set of villains, Mr. Potter falls flat in books and films that bear his namesake.

6- Hamlet.

hamlet

To list or not to list. To deny popular conception of what is iconic stories and throw them by the way side. To withstand the flaming arrows or to take up arms against the status quo of popular opinion…. With all the iconic and well done characters created by William Shakespeare, how has Hamlet become the icon? A man of inaction and debate he ponders and over thinks his next move. I feel Oedipus did it better and was far more intriguing with far more baggage. I understand that history is on Hamlet’s side, but it is no Twelfth Night or The Tempest. 

5- Luke Skywalker.

skywalker

I understand why Luke Skywalker exists. He is the innocent soul that can be related to by the audience. He introduces us to the fantastical world around him, I understand his point. But he is such a lost little sheep through the first two films. Sure he has moments of excellence, like destroying the Death Star and knocking down Imperial AT-ATs, but until his transformation in Return of the Jedi, this character is an uninteresting one. Out classed by far more interesting characters like Han Solo, Princess Leia, Obi-Wan, Chewy, the droids and Lando. Truly a so-so character amid a cavalcade of new and exciting relationships.

 

4-Data.

data

Spock as a robot. That is all Data is. Sure he was learning about how to be more human, but sweet Omicron Theta! does this character get on my nerves some times. From stupid laughter to singing folk songs, he can really wear on the viewer. As the series progressed, he became more enlightening and showed the audience what it took to be human. I just never understood his appeal to the Trek Nation. 

3- Wolverine.

wolverine

This was a character that never grew with the fans. Okay, he is an invincible bad ass with a foul temper and some sweet claws. Who was experimented on by the government. But was originally from Japan. And may have fought in the Civil War. Logan has been the focus of so many comics and films, we lose track. He was a cool character when we were 12, but now he is yawn worthy with his same antics. He is so deeply associated with the X-Men and the Marvel universe, he has almost become their unofficial mascot. Over exposure that overshadows other notable characters earns Weapon X his place on this list.

2- Jay Gatsby.

Gatsby_1925_jacket

The Book is not about Gatsby. Just because his name is in the title, doesn’t mean that is the subject. Jay Gatsby is a self-righteous twat used by the real main character, Nick to show the glitz over substance society of 1920s America. Wrongly identified as the protagonist and somehow praised as a good character, he receives much undeserved acclaim. 

1- Tidus.

tidus

Auron was wrong. This was not Tidus’ story, it was Yuna’s. This fact would not be so important if Tidus didn’t exclaim that it is his story every five fucking minutes. Barely beating Wakka out as far as stupid Final Fantasy X characters go. This guy has some huge fan following and he is by folds the most annoying person in your party. Why would you want him back in the sequel? Tidus can suck my Blitzball.

Go Enjoy the Existence

One must live for today. One must stand with open arms to the world around them, embracing it for what is not what could have been. The problems arise when you find yourself contemplatively losing yourself in a moment. By reflecting upon how something could be relived and acted upon differently you often find yourself wandering through your mind and trying to recalculate the past. Over thought of what could have been and not what is can often be a tedious and deadly mistress. Sure, one should actively review actions and learn from the missteps made in those actions, but to live in the now is a real error. You must co-habitat with the present and live in the instant. Embrace the immediate moment. Talk to that pretty girl, stay out a little late, have a meaningless conversation, watch that stupid movie. Live. One must occasionally walk barefoot in the snow or get shit face drunk on their birthday. Life is too short and we are too small and menial amongst a vast universe to not enjoy that chocolate bar or the fog that hides the moon. In a violent and hectic existence, one must take heed and enjoy all the wonder. Breath deep friends, all the problems, stresses and strains will be there tomorrow.  Go enjoy the existence.

And I’m sure future debates will be better. 

Ranking Tarantino Flicks

To start off our new Rank This! series, we list something near and dear to all of us here at the BS Production House. Tune in Weekly for fun and exciting checklists of things we love and hate. If you have any suggestions, please let us know. Without further ado, Bored Shenanigans presents

Ranking Tarantino Flicks

8-Kill Bill Volume 2

Kill_bill_vol_two_ver

Coming in at number eight, is the second half of Tarantino’s love letter to the kung-fu film. Michael Madsen proves the undeniable highlight of this film. A good movie, but lacking in the masterful action that took place in the first film. Only someone like Tarantino could have a movie like Kill Bill Vol. 2 be this low on their best of list.

 7-Django Unchained

django

Barely squeaking out of the number six spot, the latest film to wow audiences and stir up controversy. Tarantino’s stylized American West served as a back drop for this revenge epic. Recruiting a slew of highly skilled actors, this film shines as one of his best pieces and proves that Mr. Tarantino still has the Midas touch.   

6-Jackie Brown

jackie brown

“Shut your raggedy-ass up, and sit the fuck down!”

This is the most under appreciated movie that resides in the Tarantino filmography. Following the hugely successful Pulp Fiction, this one some how fell through the cracks. It was a critical favorite and earned Pam Grier some much deserved recognition, but this is usually the film even most Tarantino fans have missed. A very well written and well acted piece, if you haven’t seen it, you are missing something special. 

5-Kill Bill Volume 1

Kill-Bill-Vol--1-uma-thurman-263921_888_1400

This is an action movie. This is the way they are done and this is how martial arts movies exists in the 21st Century. Ultra stylized, extra violent and truly compelling, this was the vehicle that reminds us all of how bad ass a yellow track suit is.

4-Death Proof

death proof

It is damn shame that the Grindhouse experiment didn’t go over better than it did.  If you like 70s slasher flicks and muscle cars, this is the right movie for you. One of the coolest movies rides in recent memory with a great mix of dialogue and action. This picture shows the evil genius that resides behind the camera. Paired with Planet Terror and packed full of fake trailers, this was exploitation films on a huge budget. One of the most fun works in Mr. Tarantino’s catalog.

3-Reservoir Dogs

reservoirdogs

“You gonna bark all day, little doggy? Or you gonna bite?”

This is the movie that made Tarantino a household name. What a powerhouse of a debut film. The characters in this film are so well drawn out, they seem like you have known them for years. If there were any more bad-asses on your screen, the TV would kick your ass and take your wallet. This is the heist film by which all other heist films are judged by, yet you never even see the actual heist. Rarely does something this good come along, yet it only makes number three here.

2-Inglorious Basterds

ingloriousbasterds

Tarantino doesn’t care what spell check has to say. He misspelled it on purpose and never apologized for it. This World War Two ride throws history to the curb. Over the top assassinations of Hitler, hilariously bad Italian accents, angry Holocaust survivor,  and legendary cut throat soldiers. Any number of these things would make a film phenomenal. This one combines them all along with one of the greatest villains ever put to film. Christopher Waltz transcended so deeply  into character, you forget you are watching an actor. In all sincerity, this is one of Hollywood’s finest displays of cinema.

1-Pulp Fiction

pulpfiction

This is the most quoted movie around the BS water cooler. We seriously wore a DVD out by playing it so many times. Yes it revived careers, yes it made us all want a “Bad Motherfucker” wallet. It made us all laugh when Marvin got shot in the face, and we all have our coffee with lots of cream lots of sugar. Preserved by the National Film Registry for artistic and cultural significance, this will forever go down as a classic. This movie will be torn apart and analyzed forever by film students and film critics. This is excellence reincarnated into pure awesome. Making ‘getting medieval’ a thing and it will inspire throngs of storytellers for eons.

Outside Looking In

Sometimes it takes a friend. Sometimes it takes a friend for you to recognize your own flaws. Those hard standing habits that have become so structurally significant to you. Those stubborn things you allow to persist without even noticing them. Sometimes, it just takes a friend to shine the candle in just the right way for you to see your own shadow. That demented reflection of yourself that cannot encapsulate your better qualities. Darkly it has crept within you, bestowing upon you traits you never wanted. Embedded within you so deeply, it takes a second set of eyes to find them. It is a shattering and unnerving feeling to see your flaws laid out before you. That moment when you have all the evidence before you, yet you still want to claim innocence. All you can do is absorb it. Take in the criticisms and grow from them. Even in small areas allow them to make you a better person. Remember that recognition is the first step to transformation.  So swallow your pride and proceed better. Go out and improve yourself. Take a trusted suggestion or two to heart. Do not allow yourself to be placid and stagnant in your own self betterment. We were never meant to sit still. We were meant to fail miserably and succeed gloriously. We were meant to observe and report. We were meant to improve ourselves and the others around us. Just take the criticisms, accept your blemishes and do whatever is in your power to polish them up a little. Beyond the goals of rising above, past the notions of furtherance of self, it is imperative that you thank that friend for their observations.

Top 9 Favorite Swearwords

Cody’s Top 9 Favorite Swearwords

9)Piss. Does this really count? Isn’t this just a rude word? Like saying I voted for straight Republican ticket or I like Creed? This one barely makes the list.

8)Tits. Really? How is this a bad word? I guess because it isn’t the more technical teets, it is sinful. At least it brings to mind something wonderful, hence it’s position.

7) Damn. This is a pretty weak swear word, even when added as a description word. Even at it’s highest level of ‘I damn you to hell!’ it really requires a stronger word to make it strong enough.

6) Hell. This beats out damn simply on imagery. Devils, demons, hell fire and brimstone are all solicited. No one wants to go to hell, not even Hell, Michigan. A good word, but trumped by others on the list.

5)Shit. The versatility gives this one a guaranteed spot. Oh shit, holy shit, stepped in shit, dropped my shit, a shitty list. What a great word with good strong symbolism.

4)Ass. Another good one, it can be a great thing or a description of a horrible person. A giant ass can mean something glorious, something moronic or something vomit educing. Asses would be nothing without assholes, but the sphincter owes this one a debt of gratitude.

3) Dick. Insert Freudian phallic symbolism joke here. Look you can add ‘dick’ to anything, dick-day, dick-grass, Jupiter-dick. I don’t know what they mean either, but they sound dirty and it is all thanks to dick.

2) Cunt. I seriously had to debate my one and two for quite some time. This lost, but it did receive much consideration. This word immediately receives a shudder of disapproval from the fairer sex. Isn’t that one of the best parts about enjoying foul language? To irk the women?

1) Fuck. Come on, what else could top this list? This is the big enchilada of swear words and honestly, one of the most necessary words in the English language. It has the most ability to express every emotion conceived by mankind. This is an amazing word and most worthy of a number one spot.

***)Honorable mentions, motherfucker, cocksucker and goddamn are phenomenal swear words. Flowering your speech with them can add such atmosphere, but they generally require another word for them to work properly. So if you want an all powerful swear, we here at Bored Shenanigans, advocate the use of all of these.

999 Words Shy of 1000

FUCKED is what I came up with. FUCKED. Here is a picture of the problem. Its not a bad picture my screen is just that garbled. But I still think that I will have the episode up some time Tuesday.

Fun Bored Shenanigans scavenger hunt! B.S. related items are hidden in this picture of the BS Productions Command Center; try to find at least 8 (there are more like 14 if you stretch it a bit but the lighting was bad)

MY PC is FUCKD

Hey Look A Distraction!

I’ve got 99 problems but a badass podcast ain’t one

If you’re having to use some one else’s domain name I feel bad for you son

We have this ‘cast thing down to pure science

So good we can do it with our eyes closed

Critics of good taste say we are too intense
We advocate truth and free speech, of course we will make foes
If you don’t feel that way, then fuck off we aren’t for you
We came to distribute the free thought and the free funny
Yes, We are the BS crew
We do this because we like it, we make zero money
So send us some hatemail or eat our soup
We are irreverent in all the right ways
Or listen to how low in the gutter our topics will stoop
So tune in on Mondays and give us a play
Surely it is the best way to download some fun

I got 99 problems but a badass podcast ain’t one

So we realize that we are late. New domain names do not solve all problems, hell would it be a BS production if it were not rifled with technical difficulties? New content is on it’s way, the episode will be up as soon as we fight off the Kraken and Rancor of the new feed. Nothing should change for you but a better Bored Shenanigans experience, we will remain on itunes and will soon be in the windows store and on the android app ‘podcast addict.’ Plus very soon you can wear and stick symbols of your favorite cast in places to cover places. Sorry for the big promises and the delays, but hang in their rouges gallery, hang in there ‘guy driving in his car’ hang in there good people of Podcastlandia. We are coming to you very soon.

It Blow Up and Melted

OK, so the new episode is going to be late. I hope I can get it out on Monday at some time but not sure when. If not, we will have some sort of content up so you can get your weekly fill of Shenanigans.

What is happening is my desktop is having some sort of…. I don’t know… seizure. The problem is definitely video in nature and consists of intermittently weird white squares, in almost a grid, over 2 of my 3 monitors.This happened after I updated flash but I am not convinced that is what caused it. My fear is that it is a hardware problem and not software, perhaps overheating.

So, sorry that my inconveniences became yours. Hey, so the new episode is going to be late but while you wait why not listen to an old episode and relive some of your favorite podcast memories.

Also, don’t you like the new URL, oh lord is it sexy.

BS-to-GO 002

This meeting has come to order.

I will get to the point; I did not have sexual relations…. I mean; here at BS Productions we have Big Plans for the Future in this Press Release we address these so, listen closely to see how we are moving forward to the next phase hitting the ground running and climbing the ladder of success straight through the glass ceiling up to the stars to boldly go shooting for the moon but we wont fly to close to the sun because we are right on target for a steady course of smooth sailing.

That is all.

May I Take Your Order?     

Would you like the Hot Apple Pie with that?

So that’s one To-Go Episode 02: State of the Shenanigans Address

one more thing…

NEW WEB ADDRESS COMING SOON!!!!!!!!! 

Letting It All Hang Out

After mulling this over for quite some time, I feel the need to share this within my weekly article.  The below piece is a bit of prose I wrote and posted on my poetry site, but I feel very strongly about it and frankly need to share it. I have tried to use discretion and not flood the lot of you with a copious amount of poetry or other writings as I know that they do not always yield highly on the entertainment wheel.  Furthermore when we started doing all the Bored Shenanigans related stuff I promised all of you I would always voice my own opinion regardless of consequence or outcome and seeing as how this is simply a meager little platform of self expression I will use it as such. I feel that by not being open and honest, I am doing all of our listeners and fans a disservice.  So, that being said I hope you enjoy or if you do not, let me know in the comments.

Personal Reflections

I find that the established ideal of patriotism to be nothing more than a skin deep dictum used to either sway or dis sway someones agenda. I know that comes off as the self righteous musings destined for some sort of justification, but that assumption is incorrect.
Look, the questioning of the established order is what life is all about, we are meant to call out injustice and unfair action when we see it. Blind trust in anything only leads to disintegration and proclaims your own ignorance. You are more than an easily conquered proletariat. You are more than an easily manipulated populace, pay some attention to the world around you. Read between the lines, open your eyes, and wake the fuck up. The misuse of patriot and countryman is merely propaganda from those who demonstrate none of these qualities. Distrust and disdain for sovereignty does not default a person into an anti citizen. Those who hold genuine malcontent for the multitudes or those who are too apathetic to oppose or side with an a governing body are the real evil. Indifference is the ultimate evil, yet we find ourselves so eager to wave a flag or watch a firework display to demonstrate the genuine nature of our love of country. If you truly love something you are willing to admit the faults it has, you are also willing to use the rights granted at its inception to ensure that those principles are maintained. You are throwing stones at the wrong people, at the very least listen to those with differing ideologies than your own.
I suppose it really comes down to this, if you are so eager to label someone a turncoat communist fascist, perhaps you should think of what those accusations mean. I would be hard pressed to think of a country that was not fashioned upon some type of rebellion or at the very least some intense diplomacy. For a nation founded on personal liberty, it seems that we are hellbent and determined to deny those things from our fellow citizens who do not fit squarely into our own fundamentalism.

Welcome to Episode 22: The Good, the Bad, and the Rest

Begrudgingly

Just fucking squash your petty feuds. Don’t sit and stammer at the screen making up bullshit excuses aimed at nothing beyond self-gratification, fucking eliminate your feuds. Look, it is understood that some wrongs cannot be righted. Some grievous and dire violations of self and family cannot be corrected by a mere ‘I’m sorry’.  Outside of select few instances, do that many of us have things requiring Punisher-esque  style of revenge? Look we all disagree, we all are assholes or victims of assholes at times, nevertheless if we want to have any type of chance at moving forward, one must eliminate the issues. If you really don’t give a fuck about the person you are disagreeing with, them ignore them. However, when it comes down to family, friends, co-workers, or hell even frequently used hookers, just fix the issue. No one wants to walk waist deep in the excrement of your stupid high school drama. Nobody wants to feel that uneasy and unsettling tension that hangs so heavy when aforementioned squabblers are in the room. If not for your sake do it for the sake of everyone else.

Beyond all that, if the issues marred whatever relationship was there, at least try to be civil. Just feign a bit of courtesy and think to yourself what a goddamned cocksucker that person is. So here at Bored Shenanigans we advocate treaties amongst warring parties and nations. No more should one feel the attrition of another just because of something ridiculous and misunderstood. No longer shall we bicker as teenage girls do over who is prettier and who gets to wear purple to the prom. Just let it go.

Time’s Wastedland

Seamlessly and successfully time tends to scamper away from you some days. In some miraculous manner, even the best laid intentions some how flutter far off into the stratosphere. So how does one cage the elusive animal of time? Is it a slow mastery akin to ancient art or is it just a goddamn hard-nosed determination to beat it? Lengthy and often redundant amounts of thought have gone into this quandary, so what does one do upon the realization that, “Oh shit, there went my weekend?” Do they frenziedly and frantically fight to maintain a little bit of dignity in the face of adversity or do you shrug it off to bad luck, poor timing, and some other variables?

I have no fucking idea.  I do know ,however that we have all been on both a winning and a losing side of this particular skirmish. We have all managed and wrangled our allotted schedule with vigor and not allowed anything to stop our goal, other times we are standing beneath a leviathan surely to be crushed.  I guess my only conclusion hope for the best and plan for the worst. Do not be too unnecessarily hard on yourself when calamity interferes, but also do not await such calamity’s interference to get things accomplished.

Alas,  dear reader I have used this article and you as a distraction long enough and must go forth and accomplish as opposed to squandering away more motherfucking time. So stop using me as a distraction and go out and achieve as well.

Bored Shenanigans-To Go 001

Download here

Welcome everyone to Bored Shenanigans… To Go. On this initial episode of the To Go series Cody is joined by Brent, In which he and Brent tell embarrassing tales about themselves, wax philosophical about their friendship, talk about pod casts better than this one and briefly gloss over school emergency policy. Also enjoy Cody’s first try at editing and see if you can handle a BS episode without Brewer. So beyond all that, this episode is also somewhat of a ‘oh shit!’ as the plague has infected the BS studios, delaying our normal release schedule. As we recover, we hope you enjoy this.

New Year’s Resolve

New Year is a time of new beginnings and half ass’d promises to yourself. Those vices you intend to release into the great abyss of time and space, those torrid little corruptions we hold onto despite our best intentions. This is the year when we customarily let those fallacies flutter away and try to better ourselves. That in and of itself is a grand old tradition, yet the often forgotten and for granted part of such is to actually change. A change is a difficult thing, it is a re-manipulation of habits and reliable old actions. Change can present either the height of terror or the oasis of hope to all whom pass upon that roadway.  The most prevalent part of any change is to actually change, not to just jostle up things to settle back into familiar old routines. Fucking alter whatever you intended to revise and move forward with it. Take it, embrace it, and conquer the goddamn thing, do not allow the lack of change to conquer you. It is imperative that you actually follow through, sift through the trifle of excuses and emerge victorious. Whatever your goal was, attain that. Change your job, change your waist line, change your religion, hell change your abilities, just do the work and win.  That is your humble writer’s goal this New Year, to follow through and stand triumphant atop my flaws.

That Time of Year

Alas, we have all survived the holiday frenzy that is the Christmas rush. You may have braved the box stores on Black Friday, you may have fought your way through the hordes of last minute shoppers, or you may have wisely planned out your X-Mas shopping all year long. Whatever the case may be, you have endured and arrived at the day. Kick back and relish in your victory. While you are relishing, remember to take a moment to send your thoughts, good vibes, well wishes and prayers to those who cannot be with their families. I know this message is beaten to death this time of year, but it is the goddamn holidays so just do it.

So as we move forward from one season toward another, maybe we can take a token of the manufactured holiday charity we are force fed and apply it. I don’t expect any of you to go forth and save the world or anything, but perhaps just try a be a little better version of yourself. Whether it is the clichéd New Year’s resolution or just a personal goal to cover up that horrendous halitosis it is defiantly achievable.  Here at Bored Shenanigans, we would like to thank all of our listeners for their support, all of our rouges gallery for their participation and last but not least I would like to thank the almighty technical adviser and editor for his tireless effort making our jackassery sound mildly intelligent . We are striving to bring you a better and more classy Bored Shenanigans experience, you know with bigger tits, twice as many explosions and more fucks than you can shake a stick at.  Stay tuned for new developments and remember to keep your mistletoe hung this holiday season.

You seeing us undressed makes us want to Johnfinger. So we did it again. That is got naked. Well, we johnfingered too. Anyhoo, There has been a wedding in the B.S. Family.

We take Vegas by storm then by elevator.  And we learn there is a lot of truth in (Pulp) Fiction and in Kevin Smith’s new move Tusk.

Who Gives a Fuck?

I’d make an excuse for not being more creative and witty, but I really don’t give a fuck. Yes, I know that this is precisely the reason that you come to read these articles, is me not giving a fuck. Don’t raise your judgmental eyebrows at me, I know for a fact that you don’t always give a fuck. More than once, you have observed your personal ‘give a fuck-o-meter’ being set to zero.In fact isn’t that ultimately what binds us together as a nation, nay as a society? The notion of sometimes you just cannot give a fuck. That is the universal truth of all terrestrial life forms from when time began to until it ends.  Some days even your sweet little old grandmother doesn’t give a flying fuck. Hell sometimes you can’t give a fuck by land or by sea or by air. You remain fuckless on all fronts and any idea of you unfucking yourself is pretty much nonexistent.  So cast not the first stone upon those who don’t give a fuck, because your fuckless day is inevitably on its way. So appreciate the ‘fuck it’ moments that life occasionally bestows upon us and just try to give a fuck the next day.

The Horror, The Horror

We are all fucking pussies. No matter how much of a hard-ass we pretend to be. Sure we have all had moments of pure pansy and unadulterated heroism, but all in all, we are pussies. We all have our fears, those things that quiver us to our very soul. The key to all fears is to not allow it to conquer you. We know that this is not any ground breaking ideal or anything, but it holds sway. Can you ever appreciate how good a horror movie is without sitting down, screaming like a girl and enjoying the ride? Or can you ever know how fun a swim in the pond is without jumping in. Being overly cautious can hinder you from experiencing the best pieces of life. Precaution has its place, yet it is imperative to grasp life and go.  So you can be a fucking pussy and still live. You must just step past your hang ups and try to confront such fear. You must embrace what frightens you and make your enemies share your dread. Just remember to step outside yourself and talk to that pretty girl or cognitively react when true fear or danger does rear its head. Sure we are fucking pussies, but we are also capable of great things.

Urgent News

We are witnessing the increasing impacts of  Cody no longer being a host of Bored Shenanigans. In this last few weeks alone our country experienced record-breaking heat, droughts, and hurricanes, which impacted hundreds of thousands of people and cost our country hundreds of billions of dollars. Experts agree that his ousting by the megalomaniac Reverend caused undue duress upon the very nature of our planet. The scientific consensus is clear and overwhelming; we cannot have a Bored Shenanigans podcast with just Brewer hosting it. The planet will suffer undue travesty for several thousand years.

As public pressure to confront this change builds, we call on the good people of Podcastlandia and those former enemies of Podcastia to immediately freeze any new dictatorial decisions made by the all too powerful editor and to re-invoke what was obviously his  wisest decision, co-hosting with Cody. We believe such action on behalf of The collective podcast galaxy will not only be a sound decision for our world’s entertainment, but also for the well being of its current and future listeners, who deserve the opportunity to enjoy a Bored Shenanigans the way it was meant to be and to have a world not mired with chaos.

For the good of our listeners, fans, friends, loved ones and our nation, and to preserve the quality of life for this and future generations worldwide, we call upon you to join a growing movement around the universe that is committed to preventing extreme and unwarranted decisions being reached by Reverend Brewer and to return Bored Shenanigans back to its true and unaltered form.

Signed,

Ambassador Grainger, (specialist in Podcastia/Podcastopia relations)
