Pop Culture Talk That’s Out Of This World

Episodes

Does anyone remember a time when we had these things called toy stores?  Well, today on GeekFest Rants we travel back in time to our early days of toy collecting. 

Join Carlos and Steve as they compare and contrast two somewhat different kinds of collecting backgrounds. From actual toy stores, to stores with a toy section, to online retail, online auctions, and beyond.   

Just like there are generations that have not experienced 8-tracks, records, and cassettes, we will now have a generation that might never see a toy store.

Hey kids! We have an awesome show ahead of us this week! We start off with a bit off talk about the weekly grind and about this VHS Tape that I found that had some neat stuff on it. 

From there we talk about a Rob Pattinson movie called The Rover and some about my thoughts on him becoming Batman.. It's pretty fun and hopefully somewhat informative.

For the main event of the show we talk about lunchboxes, mostly my collection of them. I go over everyone that I have. Don't worry, it's more fun than it sounds.

Then we finish off with some talk about the new Star Wars Vintage figures and The Mego Fighting Championship. It's a pretty good time.

This week on The TRU RPT we start off with a new jam from Iceberg and MC Kate (Makes The Mic Disintegrate) Then we are lucky enough to have IB in the booth with us and he tells us a bit about his mixing style and then we have a new Johnny Court Commercial. It's all fun

From there we take a look at Detective Pikachu, the first ever live action Pokemon Game. It was alright.

For the main event we talk a bit about the start of flea market season and what that means to us and what we got at our first 40/8 Flea Market of the year. It's a pretty fun segment.

At the end of the show we talk about a VHS Tape I found and some other stuff of that sort. It's all good.

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!
