A Fan’s Guide to Picking Favorites: Episode 52, Karaoke Middle School Memories

Separator

By Shannon Fox, @shannonfox

 

After a small Thanksgiving break, the guys are back to fill our earholes with space information and their favorite stuff.  Well, at least Kentucky and Razzle are, since our fancy actor hosts are busy being awesome in the city I call home.  So, as I contemplate what my life has come to while faced with the decision to recap the poop-wiping preferences of four grown men or not, let’s get started.

 

You can find this week’s episode on iTunes and Soundcloud.

 

This Week’s Guests:

Isaac Kappy and Tom Sandoval! (@CharlesMcMansio, also @IsaacKappy and @TomSandoval1 )

Favorite Karaoke Song

While I find it hard to believe that this topic was chosen while Zac was away, I’m still impressed with the songs chosen by all of the guys!  Not your typical karaoke fair, am I right? Meanwhile, let’s all get drunk and sing “Sweet Caroline” as loud as possible.

“Toxic” Britney Spears

Tom: 

“Paradise City”, Guns N’ Roses

Razzle:

“Jungle Love”, Morris Day & The Time

Kentucky:

“Love Shack”, B-52’s

“You Could Be Mine”, Guns N’ Roses

“Doubleback”, ZZ Top

 

 

Favorite Middle School Hangouts/Memories

I, like Isaac, have ALSO blocked out most of my middle school memories, because that was the period of my life where I was mocked incessantly for my adoration of Star Wars (only for most, if not all, of the people who mocked me go see the The Force Awakens this month, I’m sure)… BUT I’M NOT BITTER, OKAY?  LET’S MOVE ON.  (Also, there’s obviously no pictures with this topic.)

 

Tom: 

Goonies-esque Adventures

 

Isaac:

Basketball

 

Razzle:

Bike Trails

 

Kentucky:

The “crick”

 

Extra Mentions:

Loretta Lynn

Dyno Compe Bicycle

Random Notes from Shannon’s Brain

  • The winner of this week’s “Hey, You’re Awesome” Award is… RAZZLE!!! Guys.  He BOUGHT A UNIVERSAL REMOTE just to mess with his school’s TVs.  And his karaoke song is “JUNGLE LOVE”.  That is AMAZING.  Razzle, you are a gift, sir.  Also, Kevin Smith would be proud.
  • I think the phrase they were looking for regarding Pluto is “dwarf planet”.  And I knew that without even having to look it up.  #NerdPride
  • RAZZLE.  GO TAKE CARE OF WHATEVER IS ON YOUR NOSE RIGHT NOW.  I AM HAVING SEVERE MATERNAL WORRY ISSUES NOW.
  • Fangirl Admission: I THOROUGHLY enjoyed Zac’s performance as Fandral in Thor: The Dark World.  He was pretty dreamy as a Blondie Bear, let’s just all admit that right now.  And I also enjoyed the first Thor.  Like, give me ALL of the Thor, basically.  Actually, give me all the Kenneth Branagh, while we’re at it.
  • So much poop-wiping discussion.  So much. What’s up with men and their preoccupation with poop? I don’t understand this.  I LIVE with a man who is also preoccupied with poop and I STILL don’t understand.
  • I would pay decent money to see Kentucky sing “Love Shack” or “Uptown Funk”. Can we make this happen at Nerd HQ ’16? Seriously.
  • I don’t even begin to understand the world of reality TV or Bravo, but I mean, Tom was the first guest that my sister actually recognized, so there’s that!
  • There is nothing more amazing/terrifying/ego-smashing then realizing how incredibly TINY we are, compared to the universe.  We know nothing, Jon Snow.
  • Razzle didn’t mention Batman, Tom Cruise, OR an actress he has a crush on this week.  Is he okay? Someone check on Razzle.
