San Diego Comic Con Recap

It’s the event everybody in Nerd Nation looks forward to, and it did not disappoint this year. Among a bunch of stuff we’ll cover on our July 27th episode, were some awesome trailers; headlined by the Justice League trailer:

Of course, Marvel couldn’t let DC win the race, so while they wouldn’t show the Avengers: Infinity War trailer to us normal folk, they did give us a trailer for Thor: Ragnarok:

And Marvel didn’t stop with movies, giving us a look into their Netflix series, The Defenders:

Speaking of Netflix, we also got the trailer for the 2nd season of Stranger Things:

And then HBO showed up to give us a teaser for the next season of Westworld:

Back to movies, we saw a trailer for Star Trek: Discovery:

And a look into the movie based off the cult favorite book, Ready Player One:

Finally, what seemed like the biggest talking points from the event, the trailer for The Walking Dead Season 8, which made more questions than answers.

So much more went down, and we’ll cover it for you this Thursday on A BRAND NEW EPISODE OF A FREAK ACCIDENT!

That’s a picture of what one guy in Florida saw in his backyard. Yes, monkeys are taking over Florida, and no monkeys aren’t native to Florida. So, how the heck did they get there?!?

Now, before you go thinking “Oh, but they’re adorable.”, check out the video below of what happened when a family got too close at a park. Then make sure to listen to our July 13th, 2017 episode to hear all about it.

You may love the Carolina Panthers, or you may loath them, but one thing cannot be questioned, and that’s their love for the Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.

Starting on July 7th, and through 3 days, the team sent out a bunch of tweets, which seemed like nothing at first glance, but take a moment and connect the first word in each one.

Chris Christie Just Wanted the Beach to Himself

Last weekend New Jersey’s government had to shut down because of not agreeing on the budget, which also caused all state parks and beaches to close as well. It’s unfortunate, but these things do happen from time to time.

The real problem came into play when a camera caught Chris Christie, and his entire family, enjoying a beach all to themselves because of it. Not exactly the most respectable thing for a governor to do.

(Funny note: Look how Chris Christie is looking straight up at the camera taking the shot. It’s almost like he knew he was about to get screwed)

Music You Can Use

If you’re an avid listener to the show, it should be no surprise that we love music, and that’s why when we hear something that perks out interests, we want to make sure you know about it.

On the July 6th, 2017 edition of Music You Can Use, we kicked things off in a big way with the new one from the Foo Fighters called “Run”.

The new album, Concrete and Gold, will hit our hands September 15th in what Dave Grohl is proclaiming will be the Sgt Pepper of Foo albums. Pretty high bar to hold yourself too, but if anyone can do it, it’s the Foo Fighters. In addition to that, the band is promising guest appearances, one being from the “Biggest Pop Star in the World now”. Some have speculated it would be Adele, but nothing has been confirmed just yet.

One thing we do know is that one of the tracks will feature a collaboration with Boyz II Men. If that doesn’t make you realize how eclectic this album will be, I’m not sure what will. Now, as a bonus for visiting our site, here’s another new tune from the album the Foo Fighters unleashed on a crowd in Paris called “Dirty Water”.

But we didn’t just talk about the Foo Fighters, we also dove into this band that’s really gaining some steam called Greta Van Fleet. There’s no way your not ready for a party once you listen to this song called “Highway Tune”.

If you’re wondering when the albums coming out, it actually already did back in April, although we’re willing to bet Greta Van Fleet sees a tad more sales now than back a couple months ago.

Following that up, we did some album reviews, starting out with Stone Sour’s very diverse Hydrograd.

Neat story behind the name of this album name, but we’ll let you listen to the episode to hear that (link at the top of this post) 

And finally, it was the new disc from Rise Against named Wolves.

So, what are you waiting for?!? Get this music now, so you’ll be the one ahead of the curve.

Your Best Friend May Want to Eat You

We’re gonna call shenanigans on this whole “Man’s Best Friend Nonsense”.

National Geographic did some research, looking over several cases, to find out dogs will go after your body after you’ve passed. in 73 percent of the cases it involved bites to the face, and in 10 percent, it was bites to the abdomen.

What’s even more startling is that in 24 percent of the cases, the dog didn’t even wait 24 hours to start consuming the body.

So, next time your dog is looking all innocent, trying to get some belly rubs, you remember this, and give him or her a stern look in the eye.
