This week we’re going to prison…well… no we’re actually just talking about prison movies. We discuss Scott’s article about the 15 Best Prison Movies. Then we crank it up to 11 with Spinal Tap and 9 other great Movie Bands We’d Pay to See. Our Special Guest this week is current Cyber Girl of the week for Playboy.com – Candace Rae. She talks with Mike about her love for Formula 1 racing, trying to stay out of trouble at the Playboy Mansion, and how she’s pretty much a sexier version of Carmen Sandiego.
Episode five of The Gunaxin Show is dedicated completely to Olympic Hockey. Mike hosts and welcomes Gunaxin Co-Founder Zach, and contributor and proprietor of Hockey Head Blog, Scott. The Olympic Hockey Tournament is the premier hockey event in the World and features professional players from the NHL and other major international leagues. Seven teams legitimately have a chance to bring home the gold, which makes it one of the more competitive international team sports you will ever watch. The guys give a full preview of the tournament, the teams, and the players. We conclude by giving recommendations of games to watch, and our picks for the medals.
Show number three kicks off with Mike, Jay, and Ben discussing Ben’s article about the worst muppets. Ben caught some heat for this article when he published it, but in general the three agree on most of his selections, except for Pepe. Next we take a look at the life and times of Mike Tyson and review some of his most famous moments and quotes. We discuss Mike’s love of pigeons and his recent Golden Globe winning performance in The Hangover.
Finally we spoke with Michael Ironside, who has starred in over 100 films and several major blockbusters including The Perfect Storm, Starship Troopers, Total Recall, Top Gun, and most recently in the summer hit Terminator Salvation. His long list of television credits include Desperate Housewives, Nuremberg, Cold Case, and ER. Michael was with us to discuss his latest project, The Bannen Way, and finishes up by answering the Six Questions.
Show number two kicks off with Mike, Art, and Zach discussing Zach’s article about fictional gadgets. We find out that some of them are probably better left uninvented and which ones could be used for devious purposes.
Next we pay homage to some of the soda brands over the years that have tried to make a dent and have failed miserably. We find out about Zach’s affinity for Mello Yellow and how Pepsi Blue tried real hard not to look like Windex.
Finally we spoke with Stephen Brunt, author of Gretzky’s Tears, about that fateful day when all of Hockey changed. He gives us a behind the scenes look at The Gretzky Trade, and finishes up by answering the Six Questions.
We kick off our premiere episode of The Gunaxin Show with our hosts Mike and Jay talking to long time Gunaxin contributor, Stew, about two of his favorite recent articles. First we delve into his list of Twenty Five ‘Misters’ from Pop Culture, giving particular attention to Mr. Salty, the Mr. Men books, and Mr. Rogers. Next we go back in time to look at some of the many one-hit wonders of the 1980’s and lament over the lack of Yello’s Oh Yeah, otherwise known as the Day Bow Bow song, on the list. Somehow that devolves into a conversation of sex on the Price is Right set before the boys decide its probably time to cut it off. The good times don’t stop there, as Art interviews one of his childhood heroes, the one and only Jerry Rice. Jerry discusses Super Bowls, modern wide receivers, and the Gillete MVP Locker Room Promotion, before finishing it up with the 6Q.
