STP's BLOG 03/06/15 "Chappie!"

This weekend Chappie is in theaters…we were lucky enough to go to a screening for this nmovie, and I absolutely LOVED it. I expected not to like it as much as I did, but the film has a great story…and some awesome action scenes. Plus it has an interesting commentary on life that I won't spoil. Most importantly… Hugh Jackman is in it, and he is sporting a rather weird mullet! Check out the trailer:



Now I could keep raving about how much I love this movie…but what does my "alter ego" – Steve Tomatoes – think of this film?



Die Antwoord is a rave hip hop group that is both strange and awesome at the same time. The members of the group, Yo-Landi & Ninja, are two of the stars of Chappie…and they are great in the movie. Here is a video of them to give you a taste of their strange sound. This was when they were on Letterman, and I am pretty sure they confused both Letterman and his audience.



Somehow this morning we got talking about this…



Yes…this is a legit dating site! What the hell…the first time I ever saw this commercial on TV I thought I was watching a Saturday Night Live skit!

STP's BLOG 03/05/15 "Chappie, Lions, & Bears...Oh My!"

So all of us are a little tired, as we went to see the screening of that new movie, "Chappie". We will give a full review tomorrow…but I will just say this… this movie is awesome. I absolutely loved it…and I didn't expect to like it at all.

I don't really have an explanation for this video…so I will just leave it here:



Have you seen the video of a Lion opening someone's car door while they were on a Safari Tour? This ESS is scary!



If this happened to me… A. I would be screaming like a little girl. 2. That car would need to be detailed after the mess I'd make in it.

I remember being a little freaked out watching bears yell at each other at the Olympic Game Farm…but that is nothing like having a damn LION open your car door!!

Bear debate.

STP's BLOG 03/04/15 "Snapchat Application!"

So this is pretty cool…A 24-year-old guy in L.A. applied for a job at Snapchat recently. Instead of sending an actual resume...he sent them a Snapchat video of himself. yes...that was his application! He didn't talk about his actual job skills though…he took it down a comedy road instead! He recorded himself riding a bike and spinning a basketball on his finger at the same time.

I give him credit…in a world where everyone is looking for jobs (yes as I typed that I have the movie guy voice in my head), this will make him stand out. Plus…it shows that he tailored it for his job application. Good thing he wasn't rying to get a job at Hummer huh? Waka Waka! No word if Snapchat has called him yet.



Yesterday I came across the Tweet of the Day…it comes from Bruce Irvin from the Seahawks. It's a simple tweet that says so much!



And now…a moment from our pup Lulu. We can't tell if she LOVES cars so much that she freaks out, or if she HATES em…

STP's BLOG 03/03/15 - "WWE's Daniel Bryan on The MegaCast"

You all probably know that I am a big WWE fan…and one of my favorite Superstars…ok, my favorite superstar is Aberdeen's own… Daniel Bryan. I have been pretty lucky to meet him a couple times….

Here I am with him and his wife, Brie Bella, at last year's Summer Slam radio row!

This pic rules as I got to hold the belt!

This pic is funny to look at as his hair game is a lot shorter…this is one of my favorite pix I have taken at a WWE event…

 photo db wrestling_zpsfgqw3mls.jpg

Well… Daniel and the WWE are coming to town in a couple weeks for a live event on Saturday 3/14. Get tickets at TICKETMASTER.

Yesterday, Thee Ted Smith and I had the opportunity to speak with Daniel on our podcast, THE MEGACAST. During the interview, we definitely got nerdy in our chat, as both Ted and I are fans of sports entertainment!

During the interview, Daniel spoke about who he would be interested in wrestling at WrestleMania:

"I would really like the Dolph Ziggler match…mostly what I want is that I want to be featured in a prominent role at Wrestlemania. I think that Dolph and I are two of the best wrestlers in the WWE and so it would be a fantastic match".

Daniel talked about the WWE Network version of NXT (this is the WWE's developmental program where the new stars get to gain experience in the ring on a show that is available on the WWE Network), compared to the TV version that Daniel was on a few years ago:

"I think this version of NXT is better at getting talent exposure to the WWE fans than our was. The difference was we were actually on TV… if this NXT show was on TV it would be making stars out of people...to where they can go straight from NXT to being a main guy on RAW or Smackdown or whatever."

Daniel also shared an interesting idea that he had regarding NXT:

"Yeah I've actually pitched to go down and work one of the NXT specials against someone like Hideo Itami and Finn Balor or somebody like that...because it's hard sometimes when you are telling people 'Hey, you need to check out this awesome Sami Zayn / Kevin Owens match or Adrian Neville / Finn Balor match"'..But if you are to say 'Hey check out this awesome Daniel Bryan vs Hideo Itami match on the Network', more people I think would be willing to check it out."

Check out this week's episode of The MegaCast here (or search iTunes & Stitcher: The Mega Cast)… the interview with Daniel begins at around 17:30.

STP's BLOG 03/02/15 "14 Seconds!"

Did you catch the UFC 184 over the weekend? Rhonda Rousey did her best Mike Tyson (in his prime) impression by beating Cat Zingano in 14 seconds. Yes…14 seconds! The big joke online is the fight was so short that you could fit the entire match on an Instagram video (whick can be a max of 16 seconds)…here is proof to that!

A video posted by Steven Lees (@kornsteven) on




I thought this was one of the cooler tributes to Leonard Nimoy, who sadly passed away on Friday. An astronaut by the name of Terry Virts gave love to Spock from space!



A few years ago we were lucky enough to chat with Leonard when he was promoting Star Trek Into Darkness. He was a great interview…if you never heard it, check it out here:

STP's BLOG 02/27/15 "Black/Blue or White/Gold"

Huge thanks to KING 5’s New Day Northwest for having us.  We were a part of their Hot Topics segment with Shawn Wayans…it was a blast being on the show again!
 

 
 
There's a photo going around online that's causing intense debate..serious debate.  It's just a dress, but some people see it as blue and black . . . and others see it as white and gold.  There's clearly an optical illusion going on, but so far there's no good explanation.
 
Ellen posted it on her Instagram and the internet exploded…
 
 

From this day on, the world will be divided into two people: blue and black, or white and gold.

A photo posted by Ellen (@theellenshow) on



 
This is completely crazy…some of you see blue and black…others see white and gold, and everyone thinks the other camp is wrong.  Oddly, I have seen it both ways…I’m one of the lucky few.  I have seen someone post it on Instagram…saw white and gold…then scrolled down…someone else posted it and I saw blue and black.  So I scrolled back up to the one I originally saw, and it was now blue and black.  This ESS is crazy.
 
For those of you that are being too cool for school and saying, “who cares”, “zero EFF’s given”, etc…just shut up.  Stop being so incapable of having fun. 
The other thing on the net people were losing their crap about was the llamas video!  A couple of llamas were on the loose in Arizona.  It was hilarious how this was a big news story… Shepard Smith from Fox News spent at least eight minutes cracking jokes and reading llama facts on live TV.  At one point he actually used the word "Llama-palooza."

STP's BLOG 02/26/15 "Flag That!"

I’m just going to leave this here for your entertainment…

There is a video spreading virally, and it’s just a baby laughing…however; this baby laughs like an evil genius…check it out:


 
If you listen to our show, you know the guys like to “flag” moments when I say ridiculous things./  Nothing beats going on KISW’s twitter page to see that they “flagged” a fine moment from this morning’s show…

STP's BLOG 02/25/15 -- "Checking Dudes Out"

We talked about this video on the air this morning...this video is nuts…literally (waka waka).  Someone secretly filmed people as he had a giant bulge in his pants.  His goal was to illustrate that women check dudes out in an objectifying way as well.  I don’t know how real or fake this is, but it’s an entertaining watch.  Plus the first chick is quite the looker!
 

 
This is crazy!  A guy in Canada named Andrew MacDonald was in a nasty crash last month, where rescuers had to use the Jaws of Life to get him out of his car.  So what did Andrew decide to do… he shot a selfie video during it!  He kept filming his face while they were cutting through the car, and it seemed like shock and adrenaline took over as he was pretty chill throughout it! 

I am glad he is OK…the video is crazy, but c’mon man…film it horizontally not vertically.  OK…OK…he gets a pass…since the dude in in a CAR WRECK!  Check it out:
 

 
 
So Marshawn Lynch has a movie being made called "Family First:  The Marshawn Lynch Story".  His little brother Davonte plays him in high school, and then Marshawn takes over for the college years.  Here is a promo video that just got posted to drum up interest in the film….
 

 
I will absolutely watch this film, as I am curious to learn more about his life story – that being said, I do have to question some of the acting and writing in this video that was posted…especially that part where the guy says: “your body and your mind took a back seat while your body took over"…I will have to stew on that line for a bit as it makes ABSOLUTELY NO SENSE!

STP's BLOG 02/24/15 "Is She Attractive?"

It’s time to play a fun game…do you think this person is attractive?  Before we start the game…I have no idea what she looks like as I cannot find a mug shot…but…I think we will all have the same answer!
 
A 33-year-old woman in Mexico was arrested last week for “enjoying” herself in a movie theater during "50 Shades of Grey".  Yes…right there in the theater.  You would think that would be like the IMAX added experience for a film like this, but no…one movie goer did not enjoy seeing this.  That person called the cops, and ironically…the woman was escorted out by the cops…in HANDCUFFS!  The should have blind folded her too… waka waka!
 
So…what do you think?  Toppy said it best…this woman must have been a 3…at best! 
 
Over the weekend, the world’s largest cannabis business and lifestyle expo was happening in Seattle…it's called "CannaCon", and our very own Max Long was there to report on it.   Here is another edition of The Max Long Report.

STP's BLOG 02/23/15 "Team Toppy Wins!"

How would you like a great way to start your day…or finish it…I guess it depends on what time you are reading this.  Ok…how would you like to see an insanely adorable picture of my pup Lulu?  Here you go:
 


 
Huge thanks to everyone that came out to the Seattle Thunderbirds game this pastr Saturday.  The T-Birds smoked the Everett Silvertips 7-0, and all day the T-Birds helped the Ronald McDonald House raise money with their annual Hockey Challenge.  As always, they did a great job with the event as it was a fun day of hockey! 
Before the game a bunch of the former T-Birds and local media gathered for an autograph session…of course I had to grab a pic with Cool Bird!

Check out this motley crew of hockey folks!
 


 
 
I was lucky enough to be a part of the ceremonial puck drop…
 


 
As for the game…man was it a blast!  Our team, team Topshelf, wound up winning in a shoot out – thanks to the stellar coaching by Toppy…oh, and a little help from some of the former T-Birds on our team like Regan Mueller, Ryan Gibbons, and Yashar Farmanara!
Getting to spend time on the ice with some former T-Birds (as well as NHL’ers) is something that I’ll never forget… it was a blast having a guy like Brendan Witt coming down and shooting on me…sure he scored 2 goals on me, but it was damn cool to experience playing with a guy that was once the captain of the Washington Capitals…plus he is one cool dude.  It was great hearing his stories about living in Seattle back at the height of the Seattle music scene exploding with Nirvana, Alice In Chains, pearl Jam, and Soundgarden.

Here I am with a couple other T-Birds legends…Jamie Huscroft, and Lloyd Shaw!
