Topic: Mechanically Modifying the Human Body

 

 

 

  • Nabbit talks about the advancements going on with 3-D printing and how new materials (mainly metals) and new techniques are making prosthetic exceedingly cheap. Leading to the futuristic idea that people will be able to download designs and print them at home, or as Oktober put it…”We are in the, future.

 

 

 

 

Game: “Be The Tree You Want To Be…”

 

A game about silly questions and scenarios that will bend your mind in some new and interesting shapes.

Topic: Water Parks: Extreme and Otherwise

 

  • The panel talks about how there aren’t a lot of stand alone water parks… most of them are attached to amusement parks, hotels or other attractions. Mainly because in many places they can only be open a few months a year.

 

  • Oktober discusses her dislike of water rides at amusement parks. The general consensus is that no one enjoys walking around in wet clothes the rest of the day.

 

 

 

  • The whole topic came from Luke’s viewing of Extreme Water Parks and marveling at some of the attractions that have come about since he was last at a water park (which was quite a while ago). Some of these seem so crazy, mainly because you have to wear a back brace just to go on it!

 

 

  • Everyone, but Major Moncle, can agree that the best ride at a water park is the Lazy River. Luke tells the story about how he suffered the only injury at a water park he’s ever had on a Lazy River….because he didn’t follow the rules, or think about how shallow it was.

 

  • Major Monocle talks about how he’d like to go tubing…not fully understanding that many people are already inebriated when they start that journey.

 

  • Nabbit had to go there….talking about how there is lots of this missing letter in every __OOL. And its another stupid excuse to bring up an Adam Sandler movie.

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge: Morning Pool Water

 

Time to enjoy the pool water when it’s freshest….first thing in the morning. This shot uses Pineapple Rum and Avery’s Totally Gross Soda: Toxic Slime to give you a quick boost. Oktober downed two before the segment was over, so that was a ringing endorsement. Nabbit had some trouble getting passed our previous conversation about the contents of pool water and ultimately suggests we serve it with a lemon wedge so you could squeeze a little yellow into it. Major Monocle was on board with this shot as well. So, give it a try and let us know what you think. (It’s the post before this one.)

Topic: Game Shows

 

 

 

 

  • Luke asks the question, “Is Ninja Warrior a game show?” to which most of the panel responds that it is not. However that leads the conversation down the strange path to the many interesting concepts of Japanese game shows.

 

  • Nabbit is looking for some novelty when it comes to game shows. He doesn’t really like the whole “trivia” vibe of Jeopardy and the like.

 

 

  • Nabbit rails against the current state of Family Feud. The panel talks about their favorite hosts (Oktober kinda takes the discussion into a strange place with this factoid)

Topic: Universal Monsters

 

After an epic intro about Gremlins the panel starts by clarifying the definition of the Universal Monsters, including: Dracula, Wolfman, The Invisible Man, Frankenstein’s Monster, The Gill Man and several others. Major Monocle wants to see them all go up against Ivan Ooze.

 

Luke brings up the attempt to reboot these monsters into a shared cinematic universe that started with Tom Cruise in The Mummy, which makes Nabbit miss Brendan Fraiser soooooo much.

 

Luke also brings up that one of the glaring issues with this franchise is that we have had half a dozen Frankenstein movies in the last decade….a few to many perhaps. Oktober is interested to see what they might do with “The Bride” and Nabbit thinks it’s an inevitable spin-off.

 

Everybody talks about the various ways they can reboot “The Creature From The Black Lagoon” (soap opera/ Lifetime Movie is one favorite idea) and all the ways that CG will be used. From Jump Scares to CG spittle, it’s all there. Nabbit suggests that the producers take a note from the makers of “The Thing” and use practical effects.

 

Luke brings up the Invisible Man and how he doesn’t think it will translate to a modern audience, which leads to the obvious Hollow Man comparison. Nabbit brings up practical effects again, specifically referring to Memoirs of an Invisible Man (1992) in which chewing gum plays a big part.

 

 

Game: “Drink It” Or “Sink It” Challenge: The June Bug

 

Nabbit notes a bit of foam on top, due to shaking. The color leads to several jokes about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and other forms of ooze. Oktober slams it back before anybody else can get to it, but once everybody downs it there is a round of enjoyable noises. Nabbit says that he would only do this kind of drink as a shot. Nabbit talks about adding whipped cream that would make it something more like a blow job shot. Luke talks briefly about the cocktail version of this drink. Try it out and let us know what you think. (The recipe is the previous post)
