Episode 134 - Can't Stop the Music: LIVE!

Recommended Posts

For those that didn't watch around that time, Chyna was HUGE, both in terms of physical stature (she was around 6' tall, and weighed around 215lbs), as a huge star as well, we're talking Ronda Rousey big. she may have been arguably bigger.

 

But, the issue is, when you leave WWE, and you're not on TV over a 100 times a year to promote your shit, it quickly goes away.

For sure. I wasn't a wrestling fan, and I was very aware of her. I also remember after she retired, she was in the celebrity version of basically any show. I remember Fear Factor in particular, but I feel like she was in a few others. In the late 90s/early 00s, she was ubiquitous.

Yeah, there was also talk of her being in Terminator 3 as the female Terminator, but it fell through, mainly down to the severed ties from WWE.

"Starfish and coffee. Maple syrup and jam. Butterscotch clouds, a tangerine. And a side order of ham. If you set your mind free, baby. Maybe you'd understand"

 

RIP Prince

I don't want to alarm anyone, but I'm starting to get the feeling like 2016 is out to get us...

 

To make matters worse over in my neck of the woods, it's getting really personal for me. So all these stories are making it all worse. (Not you guys talking about it though, that's fine.)

I know it goes without saying, but I'm "liking" your post out of sympathy and empathy.

 

I don't know your exact situation, but in the last month, I've lost my grandfather, and two days later, my favorite Aunt, and one of my most favorite people ever to be in my life (regardless of genetics), was given 48 hours to live. She is also my grandfather's youngest daughter. She is way to young to go. Yet, for some strange reason, she has lived beyond that 48 hour prognosis, but it's not like there's going to be some last minute miracle or something and she's going to be okay. She is literally dying--slowly, though thankfully for drugs, not painfully. It is just a waiting game for the phone call at this point.

 

So when I wrote that, I was only half joking.

 

Just wanted you to know that I feel you, and I hope everything works out for the best for you and your loved ones.

 

 

 

In closing, I'll just say: Fuck coconuts.

Gosh I'm so behind the times. I only just heard about Prince. 2016 has been rough. But I don't think it's out to get us because--never forget--it was the year this glorious sentence was typed:

 

Also, Thin Mints ate highly overrated, toothpaste-tasting nonsense only eaten by garbage people

Can someone help me out, does Fister like coconuts?

 

 

I will not rest until I reference every dumb comment on this 25 page thread

Never could. Never would.

He just thinks he likes coconuts due to being brainwashed by the liberal, left wing media. If anything, we should pity him.

What if everytime we saw someone wearing a shirt that said "Never Forget" we were just like, "Yeah, man, that was an amazing thread."

 

... I'd like to think Jason would be proud.

 

ETA: I just realized I'd totally get punched in the face by the firemen near me. They have a memorial outside their firehouse. Nevermind. Don't hurt me, firemen.

 

But, back on topic, how come there isn't a fireman in the Village People?!? This seems like a huge oversight!

I agree. I feel like we've really turned this shit-turkey of a thread around. I'd say we've all grown as people, and dare I say it, closer as friends.

 

Great job, everyone!

Jeez, I get busy for a couple of weeks, unable to really participate, and all of a sudden, there's an episode with close to 500 comments? I'm not quite caught up, I'm only a couple pages in, but with this being a live episode, I can probably safely assume that all of the hubbub is about lousy sound quality. Yup, no other sources of controversy. Not a one. Nope.

She also had a porn career where she was perfectly cast as She Hulk.

What's funny is that with all of her accomplishments in wrestling (being the only female Intercontinental Champion, first female Royal Rumble and King of the Ring entrant), she is still not in the Hall of Fame because her ex-boyfriend, now Executive VP of the WWE, Triple H says it would be problematic to induct her as a Google search would reveal her porn career. I mean he's kinda right it's not like there are other Hall of Famers with large skeletons in their closet like being charged with third degree murder:

or starred in a porno:

Whoa.

 

First, this episode was a *glorious* mess. I loved it. I have to ask though, who sold these guys cocaine that night? Because I think that shit was laced!

 

I kid, but it really did remind me of some of those hipster indie rock parties I attended in my younger days. Loud talking! Political opinions thrown with abandon! Constant interruption! All that was missing was the four hosts talking about opening some kind of crazy restaurant, except that they're "For really real this time, guys! We're going to do it!" [passes out two minutes later]

 

Anyway, I haven't been keeping up with the forums lately (lurker mostly), and I've usually been about a week behind on episodes, but after hearing about "Camerongate" on a video game forum of all places I had to check out the HDTGM Reddit sub (which I didn't know existed, and also, Reddit is garbage I have now learned). Which had a link to this thread with the claim that forum users hated this one too, and I thought "Cameron? Fister? PlanB? They hated this and are shitting on the show? I refuse to believe that."

 

Thank god those were lies and this is still one of the most inexplicably awesome forums on the web.

 

I don't have much to add about the movie. I feel like I really need to watch it again to absorb the madness.

 

But! Foodstuffs...

 

I'm also a little meh about coconut, but if it interests anyone, coconut is good for certain stomach problems. And the fake processed stuff is even better for it, for whatever reason.

 

Inre candy ratios: This may be a controversial opinion, but I think that mini/bite-size Snickers are better than real Snickers bars. The ratio is much more pleasing for me.

 

Inre Thin Mints: know that Keebler makes a nearly perfect knockoff of Thin Mints. They're called Grasshoppers and you can find them in most grocery stores. (They also knock off other varieties.) There, you are all no longer slaves sucking at the teat of Big Scouting. Now you can suckle the teat of Big Cookie YEAR ROUND.

 

I'm typing this on my phone at work, so forgive me for not being able to easily scroll back to get all this correct:

 

Congratulations to Cameron and Cainnon. Sorry if I've gotten some of y'all mixed up! Like I said, I can't scroll back but I know we have two expectant parents. Congrats to both.

 

And condolences to Amy the Gorilla (oh. I just got that name) and anyone else I've seen posting here in recent threads about going through hard times. It sucks. I hope things are better soon.

 

Also, was it Amy that mentioned she was a "hardcore singer?" Did you mean a "seriously dedicated singer" or a "singer in a hardcore band?"

 

Also, pineapple juice is good for singing. But just a swig or two.

Regarding Chyna and the Hall of Fame...it isn't so much porn in general, it is that one parodied the product as well as members of the McMahon family (I don't know the name- those movies have names, right?- and I'm not about to google it at work). Also of note, "Macho Man" Randy Savage wasn't inducted into the HOF until 2015, 4 years after his death. And he was the fucking MACHO MAN (see, tied it back to the ep!!). There was even more bad blood there, so it isn't impossible.

Yeah it was called Queen of the Ring wherein she had sex with a guy made to look like Vince McMahon and then a group scene involving guys who looked like Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, John Cena, and a few more. As for Macho Man, that was due to his much less talented brother Lanny Poffo a.k.a. The Genius, trying to swindle his way into an induction for himself by saying Randy Savage only wanted to be inducted with him. He eventually relented after what I'm sure was a nice check being written in his name.

Thanks man, you should come around more often. We're all pretty welcoming here. We only talk about the episodes about, I don't know, 30% of the time. Feel free to join in anytime. Thanks for the "congrats." Those were all very nice things you said, although, you did nearly lose me at "coconut is good." :)
