Things You Should Be... Friday

Things You Should Be Listening To...

The Limousines. Especially their super catchy song "Internet Killed the Video Star" off of the album 'Get Sharp'. This song will get stuck in your head all day, in a really, really good way. It features lyrics like "that drum machine ain't got no soul".

The Geek Show Podcast. This panel of 5 wild and crazy guys will give you a weekly rundown of everything geeky. They will also get drunk while doing it! The show is recorded in Salt Lake City, UT and the panel is made up of host Kerry Jackson, a morning show host for X96 in Salt Lake City; Shannon "Wildcard" Barnson, childrens educator and bartender; Jeff Vice, film critic; Scott Pierce, TV critic; and last but not least Leigh George Kade, super-crafting extraordinaire (Fun fact: Leigh and his lovely wife, Rachel, will be making the cake toppers for the my wedding). These guys along with Derek Hunter, Zach Schutt, and a variety of other regular guests will keep you laughing the entire time you're listening. They are a great group of guys who will teach you everything you need to know about comic books, "Star Wars", movies and TV. If you need something to listen to at work (or home) I highly suggest subscribing to the show on iTunes.

Things You Should Be Watching ...

The League- This is probably my favorite show on television right now. It's about a bunch of guys in a fantasy football league, and somehow FX manages to make it SO much funnier than it sounds. You'll love it, even if you're not in a fantasy league yourself, but you will understand more of the jokes if you are. The show has a lot of people you'll recognize, but might not yet know. Paul Scheer (Human Giant) and Nick Kroll (Get Him to the Greek) are the first two to come to mind. The show also brings in guest stars like Chad Ochocinco, Jeff Cribbs and Terell Suggs. If you don't know who these people are, chances are you're not in a fantasy football league. Or you don't have VH1.

Boardwalk Empire. This is an HBO series set Atlantic City during the prohibition area. It is a snapshot of the illegal transport of alcohol by politicians and gangsters. It stars Steve Buscemi.

Steve Buscemi busy being the most awesome person on the planet.

Things You Should Be Reading...

The Walking Dead- You only have 9 days to read this super-awesome zombie apocalypse story written by Robert Kirkman, before they premiere the show TV show on Halloween! If you have never heard of "The Walking Dead", you probably live in a cave, because it's everywhere right now. This is your reading assignment for the week. OR you can just watch the trailer below and get the jist of things.

Well kids, that's all I've got for today! Have a great weekend, and I'll blog ya tomorrow!
