Episode 136 - Hell Comes to Frogtown: LIVE!

Recommended Posts

 

Woah, woah, woah!

 

If episodes were foods, I would like to say that Pizza is the live show since it is more of a party food, whereas tacos are a studio food, since they are for smaller groups.

That's exactly what I was saying, though. Studio eps are my favorites, as are tacos.

But tacos are for smaller gatherings when pizzas work best for larger ones....

Why don't the frog mutants have actual frog powers that are actually functional, rather than just frog heads that for all practical purposes are odd-looking versions of human heads? Why don't they have intimidating jumping or tongue-extending abilities, like Toad from X-Men? The "three snakes" thing doesn't count if it's just as much a departure from one-snaked toads as one-snaked humans. The movie doesn't really use them as a visual metaphor for outsider status. If the frog heads are just going for random weirdness for its own sake... let's just say Forbidden Zone did it better.

Why does the Provisional Government call itself "provisional"? Wouldn't that offer an opening for a more self-confident government to win support? I could only be reminded of Carl Sagan's observation:

 

When Lenin’s party was a fairly small splinter group in Russian socialism he named it the Bolshevik party, which in Russian means the majority party. The opposition obligingly, and with awesome stupidity, accepted the designation of Mensheviks, the minority party. In a decade and a half they were.

As for the longest career in Pro-Wrestling, while there isn't really an official record for it, as there are independent shows all over the world, there are wrestlers who have had over 50 year careers, like Lou Thesz (who wrestled for 58 years), Terry Funk (50 years), and Abdullah the Butcher and Johnny Saint both made their debut in 1958, and are still wrestling today

To be fair Funk has retired and unretired so many times I think he's only wrestled a total of like three years. Sidenote, Funk might be the coolest dude ever as I met him at Wrestlecon a couple years ago before Wrestlemania and he was super nice. Took time to talk to everyone that came up to him and didn't charge extra for autographs unlike other people *cough* Ken Shamrock *cough*.

As for Piper, I was so close to meeting him as well since he was supposed to be attending a convention in Stockton, but he literally died a week before the event, which really put a damper on the mood, which was apparent when talking to Jerry Lawler who was also there. Though in an odd HDTGM connection, the person they replaced Piper with, Bai Ling.

The show's discussion of the "woman whose hotness is concealed by wearing glasses" trope begs the question of how eyeglasses exist in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. If they're not just for show, don't the lenses and frames have to be custom-manufactured, implying a fairly extensive functional technological system? How often do glasses get replaced as eyesight changes? Do they have a supply of glass to grind into new lenses? Or do those in need of eyeglasses head to an abandoned Pearle Vision outlet that didn't get pulverized in the nuclear war and grab whatever pair's the best fit?

I think I can answer it. In the commentary the director says the art department fucked it up a little and made it to unreadable. The sign says: "Welcome to Frogtown - If you lived here, you'd be home". Which is insanely correct. :D/>

 

And by the way: I prefer the live episodes. Even though sometimes the audience is hard to understand, I just think it is more fun. :)/>

 

I prefer them too! Their energy is so over the top and they feed off of each other and the audience so well...it makes it much more exciting to listen to. Especially when the audience goes all out like when they made BIM marks for The Apple episode.

 

I almost died laughing when they played the 'shut your hole!' clip especially Natasha and Moshe saying it. Doubly so when Moshe repeats it and says it to Jason

But, tacos = studio eps = small gatherings, and pizza = live shows = large groups. So I think we're saying the same thing.

 

Unless you're fucking with me, and I'm just too dumb to pick up on it.

Don't know if this was discussed earlier, but in regards to the flap on the underwear, how does he shit? Is there another flap in the back for him as I assume there would be, but then there's the issue of cleanup, and you know he's not getting all clean with how awkward and bulky that underwear is so that means Piper is running around the desert with his own waste caked against his skin encased in a metal diaper that is also used to electrocute him. In other words Piper must reek to high hell.

 

Also Legends of the Hidden Temple was the best game show when I was a kid and apparently they are bringing it back, though after reading an article where the interviewed past contestants who said it was utter hell in trying to shoot a single episode and the kids were entirely exhausted by the time they got to the actual obstacle course. http://www.sbnation.com/2013/3/5/4064102/legends-of-the-hidden-temple-interview

Nah I was just mistaken initially and cannot flip my staunch stance on pizzas. I mean, its pizza, I choose pizza!

Those kids always looked WRECKED by the time it was over! I loved that show too and watched it all the time and I feel like I can only remember a handful of teams actually making it through the the temple at the end and winning. I've caught episodes as an adult and still thought it looks fucking hard to win

This movie was too goodbad, it deserved guests talking about it that had actually watched it. Not ones that zoned out at minute 1 and just skimmed the Wikipedia page on it.

Yeah basically if the kids didn't sweep the challenges in order to have a pendant for each team member, they were screwed. What was funny was that the regular grand prize was a all expense paid trip to either Universal Studios (where they already were since that's where the show was filmed) or Busch Gardens, which was a sister park to Universal Studios so it was likely the contestants might already be going there also as part of their vacation. So in the end worthless trips.

Here's one thing that concerns me. Roddy Piper impregnates all of these women to get the population restarted, then what happens? There are now all these Roddy Piper Fathered Half-Siblings running around, all of them genetically related, and if the population is gonna keep growing, who are they gonna keep the population growing with? Do they have to keep some kind of dog tag on, or a bracelet so they can identify each other so they don't end up fucking when they grow up?

 

You've gotten rid of the frog people, but now you've potentially ushered in an in-breeding apocalypse.

I would assume that there would have to be some kids growing up to bang moms that are not part of the parental coupling, hoping that they are still able to procreate. None of the first generation kids would be able to get with each other due to the easy to see birth defect risks, so that leaves the original moms. From there second generation would commingle with first generation and possibly generation zero, eventually creating enough generations to where the risk of inbreeding would be minuscule. Oh my Christ I have now put more thought into this story line that the actual director.

Haha. Fair enough. I live in the taco capital, so I can't ever turn my back on tacos. But maybe if it was this:

Pizza? Now that's what I call a taco.

Bow down, colonial scum, before the British (okay, Turkish or Greek) awesomeness that is the 'Elephant's Foot'.

The food of the gods.

I have a Turkish friend from my old job, and he introduced me to döner. I'm a sucker for lamb, so it's a good backup to tacos if tacos somehow disappear from Austin (which would probably lead to a post-apocalyptic Frogtown). They're pretty goddamn tasty, too.

The original mums , from the picture of them posted earlier, look mid 20s at best. Completely bangable, undoubtedly, but reaching the upper limit of childbearing around 40ish, when the the first new generation of horny young dudes comes onstream. Maybe they can squeeze out two more at best.

Of course fertlility treatment facilities in 'Whateverthefuckitscalledland' could be absolutely top notch and help put off menopause for a decade or so, but I doubt it.

Not only that, there's also a question of morality as to when they're "put to work" for lack of a better term.

Im pretty sure that 'morality' and 'Hell comes to Frogtown' were, if not at the stage of already divvying up the kids and CDs between them then were at least separately consulting lawyers.

And, to contribute information no one asked for: Döner is a german invention. Well, kinda. It was the idea of a Turkish immigrant in the 70s or 80s (Yes, 1970/1980) who thought about a food you could eat on the go. :)
