And it all comes full circle. When we started this show, we decided the first movie we wanted to do, we came up with a name, created an email address and contacted the director of said movie all while at a baseball game. Now here we are, on our third birthday, returning to our roots. That’s right we’ve finally got Chris Franco to watch The Battery! We take a look back at the film that started it all and see if after 3 years it still holds up. We also discuss the massive shit Eli Roth is trying to take, the horrible things Alia does for love, how absolutely disgusting Matt is, oh, and we debut a brand new theme song from San Diego horror punk band Batlords! Does Franco realize the greatness of The Battery? Is Mickey still a giant bitch? Does Jorge make it through an episode without losing his shit? Hey, you leave my god damn hair alone! It’s the grey, the bald and the ugly!
Sweet! I get to do 2 baseball/horror posts in 2 days! The Toledo Mud Hens (Detroit Tigers Triple A affiliate) have unveiled a sweet new Ghostbusters themed jersey. The promotional jersey will be worn on May 30th, no word as to whether Ecto Cooler will be served, crossing streams still not permitted.
The Mud Hens are constantly using novelty jerseys, check out last season’s Chewbacca jersey.
The universe is definitely smiling on me when 2 of my favorite things come together. No, I’m not talking about peanut butter, and bacon; I’m talking about horror and baseball! Unlike every episode of our show thus far, I’m NOT talking about The Battery.
