Pop Culture Talk That’s Out Of This World


Vintagesploitation. Have you ever heard this term before?  We had not, until we listened to an episode of The Chive Cast and we started to notice a new trend in marketing Star Wars toys: appeal to Star Wars collectors by recreating vintage looking items.  Is this a money grab or a new, innovative way to  give collectors what they want? 

Then we tackle the novel, The Exorcist.  Is it as good as the movie?  And what is the connection between this book and the classic TV cop, Detective Columbo?

This week on the show we start off with a new song by Iceberg Thirteen and MC Kate. It's pretty hyphy.. 

From there we talk about a few things including a death defying trip I took to get a Jon Snow action figure.. It's pretty nuts.

Then we take a look at a couple of DVDs I rented, one was called The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then Bigfoot. The other is called Dragged Across Concrete. It's the latest from Craig Zahler.. It's long.

Then we take some text messages.. wanna send one? Here's the number.. 707-538-JAMS. I love to get messages! I wanna know what you guys think, I love your questions.. Hit me up. After that we open up my latest Mego and have fun playing with him for a bit..

Hey kids. This week we're gonna take a look at a classic from the past.. Episode number 26 where we took a look at all the Chewbacca figures produced by Kenner... I felt like it was a fitting tribute to the recently passe Peter Mayhew. I recorded a new intro complete with a TROY to Mr. Mayhew.. He shall be missed. 

Here's what I had to say about the episode all those years ago...

Hey kids! Thanks for stopping by, this week we have a great show ahead of us. It's special for a few reasons. For the first time EVER! we tackle a topic involving Star Wars AND this is our longest episode to date! Awesome right?

Outside of Chewbacca we talk about the sad closure of a local video store, A GREAT movie that I saw and when it finally gets down to The Real Toy Talk we go on so long about Chewbacca that I had to add an extra 10 minutes to the show to fit it it all in. 
We talk about Wookies and their homeworld and what sort of physical gifts a Wookie is born with. It's fascinating stuff! We talk about Chewie and the movies and why he has always been a special character to me. 
There is a bunch of great stuff this week including a bunch of new musical breaks. Real great stuff. Honestly this might be my favorite show to date.. 
 I want to give a big shout out to KRS One and thank him helping us with the structure of the show. Without him I never would have come up with at least half of it! 
It's a great show like always make sure to tell a friend!

This week on the show IseeRobots goes at it alone as IB13 and Engineer Emily are off on vacation. It's all good though. 

On the board and on the mic at the same time ISR starts off with some talk about Rey and Star Wars and about believing in yourself. It's kind of boring but also a litte fun.

From there we head into At The Movies and a look at DC's latest flick, Shazam. BITD they used to call him Captain Marvel but with the MCU using that name he's all about SHAZAM! Now, it was a pretty fun flick and we'll talk all about it. 

Then for the main event we take a peek at a pro wrestling documentary called 350 days. it was a pick from show patron Javier. The flick takes a look at what it was like on the road for some of wrestling's biggest stars from the days of yore..

At the end we take some text messages and answer some questions. It's a good time..
