REPOSTING of Sideshow 61 -Willie O’Ree from Jan 21, 2021

January 18, 2022

This is a Re-Posting of Sideshow 61 from Jan. 21, 2021

 

TODAY IS THE DAY … FINALLY, the Boston Bruins retire Willie O’Ree’s number 22!!

 

The NHL needs to retire his number league wide!

 

 

Biff and Jacques chat the Great Willie O’Ree. The Bruins, a little late to the dance, are finally retiring Willie’s #22 he wore in 1958 when he broke the color barrier.  Biff tells of a personal interaction with Willie in Santa Monica, CA a few years back.  Biff also points out while Willie’s number being retired most likely was a positive step brought on by the BLM movement, the NHL has a long way to go to make their “Hockey Is For Everyone” program a true outreach.

Sideshow # 81 - Movie Draft!!!

Sideshow # 81 - Movie Draft!!!

January 17, 2022

Biff heard this fun draft concept on a hockey podcast and we gave it a try.

There were 8 categories and you can’t pick a favorite movie within a 5-year window in either direction and you can’t pick a movie if the other one had put it out there first.  Confusing … a little but not really and you’ll get it within the first few picks.

TOTALLY FUN doing the homework and putting this episode together … hoping for more of these type shows in the new year!

EP. 190 Happy New Year???

EP. 190 Happy New Year???

January 3, 2022

What a perfect way to end a “everythings fine, nothing to see here” year.  We WERE set to do a end of year sideshow – best of worst of list thing … BUT just before zooming in together … we hear the great Betty White past well … just did a regular show.  The Ghost In The Machine really didn’t want Biff recording this week as you’ll hear if you can make it to the last part of the podcast!

Jacques chatted his (with friend Renatezky in from LA) trips to NYC and skiing in VT, chatting covid (surprise surprise surprise) wreaking havoc all over and really hitting sports world.

Biff highly suggest checking out Pui Pui Molcar and Aggretsuko on Netflix, Jacques AND Joe demand you watch the Bob Einstein special on HBO Max!

Jacques met or came within a reasonable margin of most of his 2021 goals and set his 2022 goals … like you care … like you care.  No, really, don’t pretend!

Ep. 189 - Our 2021 Christmas Spectacular

December 20, 2021

Would it really be a Christmas Spectacular without Joe … NO!  So, Santa worked his magic and Joe joins Biff and Jacques to chat best/worst Christmas movies, tv specials, songs and food!

We also chat the Beatles Get Back 8 hour special and need at least 8 hours to really cover it!  Talk covid ravaging the sports landscape (as well as the Lowell schools and the world as a whole STILL) and Biff brings us another Japan major crime story … Bridges over troubled waters AND a car going over Niagara Falls this week.

Sideshow # 80 - November‘s Joe‘s Basement Interviews

Sideshow # 80 - November‘s Joe‘s Basement Interviews

December 13, 2021

FIRST, a big thank you to Jacob, Tucker, Pat, Brady and Aiden for being rock stars and doing interviews with me at the Joe’s Basement Retro Video Game Night at Mill # 5 in Lowell (inside Coffee and Cotton) a few weeks ago.

Second, again, huge ups to Joe, Bryan from Replay’d in Allston Mass, Management (Jacques’ wife), Darcie from LLAMA and Brendan and Jim and Julia Malakie from The Lowell Sun.

In the words of Tommy Boy, “let me tell you why I suck.” Apologies to ALL.  I was plagued by tech issues and stupidity recording and editing this episode … all self-inflected wounds … I lost some files ... I hit record when not talking and hit pause during other interviews … truly, one fumble after another.  DOH!

And I promise this IS the last time I’ll mention the November event … because over next month plus we’ll be plugging our next Joe’s Basement Retro Video Game Night at Mill # 5 in Lowell on Thursday January 27, 2022 (wow … 2022) to benefit Afternoon In The Arts in Lowell.  Thanks again for putting up with me and these boo boos and thanks again to the rock stars who made the night a success and did kick ass interviews.

Slew Footing Into Christmas Season

Slew Footing Into Christmas Season

December 6, 2021

Jacques 11 year-old son (Eggzy Boi) learns how to manipulate the media (aka the Lowell Sun) and Jacques for better or worse founds Joe and his 1995 sketch portfolio they sent to SNL, Conan ... ect … SHOCKING they weren’t hired!

On the light side of the force, we chat Sesame Street’s FIRST Asian puppet, CP single handedly bringing live back to Hammer Films and how Jacques watched Tommy Boy together with Joe (and how Biff plans to watch UHF with Joe his next visit here!)  On the Darkside (reluctantly) we chat another school shooting, Row v Wade (and how it really just effects poor folks) and how Lowell schools are #1 in state with Covid rates.

Also chatted … Bruins Marchy and the slewfoot double standard, MLB lock out and us not caring and … are we fans of the TampaBucs (off the field?)

EP. 187 - It’s Not All About Joe … Just Mostly All About Joe

November 22, 2021

After weeks of talking about it ... Jacques’ first event at Mill # 5 (Joe’s Basement – Retro Video Game Night) happened… and it 1000% wouldn’t of happen or gone nearly as well without Joe playing super hero and making so much happen!

It’s Thanksgiving this week … Not a favorite of Biff or Jacques .. but both do plan on eating stupid amounts of food over the holiday weekend!

Japan Princes Mako maybes NYC her home, Joe’s NEW Craiglist finds and Jacques hasn’t climbed out of the horror Hammer Films rabbit hole he now calls home.

Yes, we touch a bit on the unthinkable horrible court ruling in WI that broke just before we record … I guess murder is legal in WI now (note: only if your white is it legal.)

All this and … a tad bit more …

Sideshow # 79 - Bryan From Replay‘d chats Mill # 5‘s Retro Night 11/17/21

November 15, 2021

Our new best friend Bryan from the retro video store REPLAY’D (Allston MA), chats with Joe (yes, Joe) and Jacques (sadly  … Biff has a real job and couldn’t join the geek fest) about this Wednesday Retro Gaming Night at Mill # 5 in Lowell, THIS Wednesday (event is called .. you guessed it, “Joe’s Basement”!)

Fun chat about how and why Bryan started a retro store 12 years ago and how this is one of the few industries that sky rocketed over covid (and how some scumbags are … being scumbags jacking prices to stupid levels).

We recap last week’s Retro World in Hartford Joe and Jacques (and their wives kids) went to.

If you’re in the Boston area … you gotta go to Replay’d and say hello to Bryan … if you’re NOT and you have ANY gaming needs … hit Bryan up at:
