Long time no blog. Here is what is going on!
Alright, Let’s do a Podcast – As of this post, Kevin and I are 134 episodes deep into the podcast. Shows are coming less frequently, but that’s isn’t due to a lack of interest, it’s mostly due to scheduling.
Kaiju Podcast – You probably already know this, but Jorge and I are 11 episodes deep on a new podcast about giant monsters. We have already recorded 23 episodes which will continue to show up on Podcast Feeds every other week!
Dharmalars – I’m still trying to find time and space to upload the missing episodes of the Dharmalars.
It Came from the VCR – VHS Dude’s popularity continues to grow! Thanks in part by friends on GoFundMe, I was able to purchase a new computer. Along with the new computer, I have also purchased new capture hardware that will allow me to get better looking footage. That being said, I am currently ripping and editing the It Came from the VCR mix tape. It’s tough, and may take a while, but I am hoping to have it done by the end of the year.
I am also trying to get things started for an It Came from the VCR internet review show starring VHS Dude. I am so close to getting that into production.
Patreon – I have created a Patreon for some reason. I am hoping to come up with some sort of monthly (possibly bi-weekly) content that you guys would be in to, so that I could make some money to fund some of the things I do, like Podcast hosting fees and building materials for the VHS Dude show. I am not sure what the content will be, but I am definitely open to suggestions.
Casinoskunk – I am trying to create Casinoskunk Productions as a “brand” for myself. Think of it like a poor man’s Bad Robot or Nerdist. It will be sort of an umbrella that all my creative outlets will fall under. The first step in this is making sure all my podcast episodes are currently posted on this page as well. I have also included links to all of my endeavors on the sidebar of this page (below this post if you’re on a phone).
Anyway, I have a lot on my plate, and that’s not including my full time job.
Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you have any ideas for what you would like to see on the Patreon page.

“Weird Al” Yankovic plays George Newman – a walking disaster who’s had more jobs than hot dinners and been fired more often than Dirty Harry’s Magnum! But now he’s about to take a crack-shot at success.
His Uncle Harvey has won a broken UHF TV Station in a poker game and given it to George to manage on the grounds that not even George could make it worse… So be prepared- it’s a shocking line up:
The Incredible ‘Wheel of Fish’
‘Raul’s Wild Kingdom’ where poodles learn to fly from third floor windows
‘Name that Stain’
‘The Wonderful World of Phlegm’
‘Conan the Librarian’
The universe is in the grip of darkness, under the hateful eye of Count Zarth Arn. Hidden deep within his fortress, the Count seeks to destroy the Good Emperor and his kingdom. Knowing these plans, the Emperor employs a trio of adventurers led by the best pilot in the galaxy, the beautiful and irrepressible Stella Star.
An epic struggle between the forces of evil and the sophisticated sorcery of fearless heroes is realized when Stella and her comrades, using their wits and technological wizardry, battle intergalactic robots, deadly troglodytes, prehistoric men and ultimately the Count himself.
Starring: Caroline Munro, Marjoe Gortner, Joe Spinell, David Hasselhoff and Christopher Plummer as The Emperor
Music Composed, Arranged and Conducted by John Barry
Written and Directed by Lewis Coates
“…both the most ridiculous and the most irresistible of all the Star Wars knock-offs of the late seventies and eighties.” – Sean Axmaker (Parallax View)
“The single greatest sci-fi camp fest ever put on celluloid. This film boasts the perfect blend of goofy cheese and unhinged imagination.” – R.L. Shaffer (IGN DVD)

I haven’t reviewed a movie since Skyfall.
Here’s what I’ve seen since then:
The Hobbit – Fucking awesome!
The Last Stand – Not bad, Johnny Knoxville was more likable than expected.
Oz, The Great and Powerful – Better than Alice in Wonderland?
Evil Dead – True to the franchise and a ton of fun!
Iron Man 3 – Better than 2 but not 1. More enjoyable than Avengers.
Star Trek: Into Darkness – It’s cool, but didn’t really care about it.
Man of Steel – Finally a Superman film that I can get behind.
Monsters U – Loved it more than the first film.
The Wolverine – Snoozefest.
Elysium – Looked pretty but fell apart at the end. Clunky.
The World’s End – Great addition by the guys who made Hot Fuzz!
Riddick – See my Iron Man 3 review.
Escape Plan – Not an action movie, but incredibly entertaining.
Thor: The Dark World – Opposite of Thor 1. 1st half boring last half is okay.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire – Fucking loved it! May be my favorite film of the year!
