TPIF: Thank Pod It's Funny! Episode 5: Urkel-Mania

On today's show, the boys wrap up their discussion on the face of TGIF, Steven Q. Urkel! If it involves Urkel, we talked about it. From his meteoric rise into the pop culture stratosphere and the Urkel-Mania that followed. From doing the Urkel-Dance with Bea Arthur to the merchandising, to his wacky storylines, we cover it! powered by podcast garden  -Derek, TC, Chad

The 2018 Flea Market Season Kickoff!

Ya know I keep promising every year to make a new banner for my flea market posts but at this point, I love this too much. Finally! The first flea market of the new season. Thank goodness, because just the week before, we were still getting snow and even an ice storm, so the hopes for an enjoyable spring were at an all-time low. People around Rochester have been fed up with the crappy cold and in a hurry to enjoy all the delights of the warmer seasons. So what better way to enjoy than hitting the first flea market of the season? I was excited for this first market, but don't get me wrong, I had to keep it at a minimum. Last year was pretty lame and a gigantic letdown with finds, I feel like more and more people are getting wise as to what they have. I mean, why sell a complete Greyskull at the flea market for $5 when you can get it for a lot more on eBay? I get it, but the treasure hunter in me was sad when I'd walk away with nothing. So when I hit the flea market

My Major Radical Award!

Well this big brick of radical Turtle-y goodness just got slammed on my door step. And I am dancing with joy! A little backstory before I dig into this most bodacious box. The fine folks at Viacom ran a sweet "Spring Cleaning Sweepstakes" over at the official TMNT Facebook page a few weeks ago, seemingly to help promote for the new Rise of the Ninja Turtles cartoon and toyline and to probably get rid of some crazy crap hanging around the office but the biggest prize...An exclusive Rise of the TMNT figure (not released until later this year). I love a good contest, especially when it has toys involved, so I was not going to turn this opportunity down. Bad add the possibility of winning something no one else can own just yet? There's a selfish, competitive side to me that will not rest until I win it. And win I did! You remember mailing away for those exclusive GI Joe or Star Wars figures as a kid? Remember the excruciating wait from them to arrive? That's wha

TPIF: Thank Pod It's Funny! Episode 3: Characters (Part 1)

On today's show, Derek, TC and myself discuss some of our favorite, and not so favorite, characters in TGIF history. Of course, considering how many shows were on during it's run, we couldn't get to every show, so we've decided to split this one off into two parts.  Aaaaaaand of course it wouldn't be a show without us straying off topic. It's definitely a show that goes off the rails with off topic discussions, but we had fun and we hope you will too! powered by podcast garden

It's Wrestlemania weekend, and to celebrate, Derek, TC and Chad sit down to talk about all the body-slammin', head-crushin', clotheslinin', airplane spinnin', hot wrestling action that occurred in the history of TGIF!
