Random Things From My Desk!

Image
Even when I was a kid and we had our first computer (a crummy Commodore, still very cool for the time), I always liked having stuff around our desks to keep me occupied. Then again, when you're a child with ADHD and the energy of a racoon who had just dug through the Baskin Robbins dumpster, I guess it kinda makes sense to have as much around you to keep you occupied as possible. Now? Well, I suppose now it's just a nice distraction and an easy motivator. If I'm having a hard time pounding out a project, I can just fiddle with a WWF Hasbro figure or read an old Fangoria to get my mind off whatever is stopping me from writing 32,000 words about No Holds Barred.

Alright, alright, and sometimes it's just because things look cooler on my desk than on a shelf. Admittedly, I don't have to dust an Al Bundy Funko on my desk as much as I would an entire fleet of G.I. Joes. So maybe sheer laziness comes into play as well.

So what goods lays on this messy (and very unorganize…

TPIF: Cartoon All Star Watch-A-Long

Image
Well, the moment has come. I've been wanting to cover the mammoth mindscrew called Cartoon All-Stars To The Rescue for years. And thanks to my TPIF cohost, TC, I finally can make that happen.







So to join us today, just head over to YouTube to check out this memorable anti-drug special from 1990 and play our episode along with it. It'll be like MST3K...except no robots...and we're not as witty!

This is a pretty wild and memorable cartoon from our childhood and if you've never seen it before, it's quite the trip. Which is ironic considering the message of the cartoon. But I'm sure you're bound to enjoy one way or the other. Most likely for the wrong reasons...

All Hail Serpentor! THIS IS I COMMAND!

Image
This may upset a lot of you, but I wasn't a Cobra Commander fanatic as a kid as much as other GI Joe fans were. He was whiny, incompetent and kind of annoying. I never really bought into the idea that he could lead Cobra and truly defeat the Joes. But then in 1986, I was introduced to the true leader of the famed terrorist organization...I was introduced to...SERPENTOR!



TPIF: The Convention Episode!

Yup, you heard right. The bad boys of Thank Pod It's Funny are back with a brand new episode! Taking a brief detour in the subject matter, we'll be discussing our favorite, least favorite and most legendary convention stories throughout the years.

Review: My Bloody Valentine (Collectors Edition) by Scream Factory!

Image
SYNOPSIS:  "On Valentine's Day, someone always loses their heart. Twenty years ago, this small town lost more than that. When supervisors abandoned their posts to attend the town's annual holiday dance, a tragedy claimed the lives of five miners. The sole survivor, Harry Warden, was institutionalized, but returned for a vengeful massacre on the disaster's first anniversary.
Nineteen years later, the town is gearing up for another Valentine's Day party. Teen sweethearts T.J. and Sarah, along with their friend Axel, are among the excited partygoers. But when a box of candy containing an eerie warning and blood-soaked heart arrive, the townsfolk realize that romance is as good as dead. And so are they..."



THOUGHTS: Well, it's been well over a decade since we've last seen this slasher hit bluray, or any home media release in North America thanks to our friends at LionsGate. A good disc, not a lot of extras but decent enough transfer. It sadly quic…
