          Coin Operated 190: Littlest Lumber Jack

          Lumber Jack

          Brian has embraced his new Nickname given to him by our YouTube buddy isuckcalfmuscles; The Littlest Lumber Jack. With that new nickname he will try and grow his beard as big as he can because the harsh winter days of Florida are coming. Bringing in these Winter Days were the Thanksgiving and Black Friday where the boys went and saw family. They did a little Black Friday shopping online and traveled for the majority of it.

          Avengers

          What Nerd Podcast isn’t complete with out a little talk about the Avengers Infinity Trailer where Pittsburgh Nerd Podcast talk about it as well. We see Bearded Cap which is awesome because Chris Evans looks hot in a beard, Scarlet Johansson as a Blonde Widow  and the biggest question question what is up with Thanos. We mostly talk about that because we know everyone has over analyzed and we don’t want to be those guys.

              Coin Operated 189: California Love

              Coin Operated 189: California Love

              California Love

              California is where Cody came back from his trip. He went to have fun at Disneyland especially on Mr. Toads’ Wild Ride. He also walked in the Super Hero Races being held that weekend.

              The main draw of Disneyland compared to Disney World is the older rides and the more compact park. He really enjoyed how everything was in a smaller space and the seamless blend of each land.

              Beer and Brian

              While Cody was in California, Brian stuck around in Orlando and got his beer on for the Orlando Beer Fest. He got the VIP to be able to drink early and enjoy some of the best beers before they ran out. His favorite Beer was a Peanut butter and chocolate Porter and he hated the #whitegirlwasted pumpkin spice.

               

               

               

              Justice League and Battle Front

              We liked Justice League but hate EA. Like everyone else we joined the hating EA bandwagon. We talk about how EA a publicly traded company could care less about upsetting people and because they only answer to their stock holder.

              Justice League was great. We enjoyed the movie because it was a pretty simple Super Hero Flick.

                        After a few weeks off, Brian and Cody catch up with all the out of control fandoms. We start off on 10/29 with the madness of the SNES Classic release. After that it was out to Tampa for MegaCon and beer. Brian enjoyed and reviewed his experience for that weekend including the can’t miss Jay and Silent Bob Get Old.

                        Fandom Hell

                        One of the themes we noticed at Megacon Tampa and in general was the amount of Funko Pop and Rick & Morty things everywhere. McDonald’s released the fabled Szechuan Sauce and the Rabid Rick & Morty fans went crazy. They are not a smart fan base.

                         

                        Video Games

                        We talk about Cuphead and how much the style and  hardness make it a great game. Brian Talks about how much he joy he is going through playing the SNES classic especially Super Mario Land.

                            Marvelette Missives – My Friend Dahmer

                            Anyone over the age of 30 knows about Jeffrey Dahmer and likely remembers the details of his arrest and trial in the early 90s. Even if you’re younger, you no doubt recognize the name of the man who took the lives of 17 victims. Artist John “Derf” Backderf went to highschool with Dahmer in the 70s and in the graphic novel My Friend Dahmer, he recounts his interactions with him, how much of an outsider he really was and how the toxic family environment he lived in had a hand in creating the monster he was to become.  More

                              We talk about our experiences with the all mighty Rickmobile, that made a pit stop in Orlando. By the way it was a crazy experience for both of them. Each one both agree lines suck.

                              Throne of Comics

                              After the Rickmobile came the Jason Aaron signing. Brian had to work most of it since it was at his job but Matt was able to experience the fastpass line.

                              Matt and Brian go head to head for the king of Smut. Both dabble in the realm of the messed up ideas because they are messed up. They include Elvis, octopuses, poop and more.

                               

                              Lastly big thanks to Matt for coming on and filling in for Cody because this was a week not to miss.

                                Episode 17: Plunging the Depps, Movies and Their Origin Stories

                                In this episode, join the Free Rotation hosts as we talk about movies vs their original form (books, manga, video games, series). Admittedly, this is an enormous topic but we are small minded enough to narrow it down to the ones that no one cares about- except us! How did books to movies like The Giver, IT, and Twilight stand up… wait.. did we talk about that?! The answer is fifty shades of “oh, yes, we did!”

                                You can find more insanity on Facebook at The Free Rotation Podcast, Twitter @thefreerotation, and YouTube and Twitch at The Free Rotation. Also, make sure to check us out on We Be Geeks, the network where your geekdom knows no bounds!
