Gome of the Week
Dear Society,

Will you please stop watching this terrible, horrendously trashy, faaaaake show so I can stop seeing commercials for it when I'm watching my precious Cops reruns?

Even worse, truTV keeps slipping it into the Cops time slot so it ends up on my DVR. And that just has to stop.

We're better than this, aren't we?

This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
Airborne (1993)

I get the feeling this movie is a cult classic to some basement-dwelling weirdos out there, so if everyone's seen this and I'm simply a lame-o who was too busy tying a flannel around his waist in '93 to acknowledge the cultural impact that Airborne had on the world, then I apologize for my temporary slip in attempting to bring you a truly random movie. Having said that...

Did you ever wish The Karate Kid centered around rollerblading instead of karate? Well, you're in luck. Because this is more or less the exact same story, minus the old dude/mentor character and everything else that was good about The Karate Kid.

Mitchell Goosen is a sweet bro, just coolin' his life away in California, riding his rollerblades to the beach every day in search of the perfect wave. Yep, he's one o' 'dem rollerblader/surfer types. When his parents tell him he has to go stay with his aunt and uncle in Cincinnati, dude is unstoked. But he packs up his surfboard ("I never go anywhere without my stick," he proclaims) and hopes for the best.

Upon arriving, he's greeted with some devastating news: There are no oceans in Ohio. Shit, brah. Thankfully, he's still got his killer attitude and a cool cousin (played by Seth "Technically a Midget" Green) who promises to show him the ropes. After getting roughed up by the locals (including a young Jack "Remember When You Weren't Sick of Me" Black), he decides to strap on his blades and prove that he's the coolest cool who ever cooled.

A bunch of other crap happens, and the ruffians who once wanted him dead embrace him just in time for the big race against "The Preps." Better be careful, Mitchell, Devil's Backbone is the most dangerous stretch of road in town! Using his patented Fruit Boot technology, Mitchell wins the race, the heart of the chick who's he's been dating on and off for the previous six days, and the respect of all the key bladers in Cincinnati. Hang loose, broheim.


This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
The Barry Sisters - At Home With... (1958)

These women were so Jewish that their original last name was Bagelman. Seriously.

As per usual, I've been sitting here with my headphones firmly strapped on, trying to figure out which are my favorite tracks from this week's LP. I've narrowed it down to "Vyoch Tyoch Tyoch," "Ich Chob Dich Tzifeel Lieb," and "Vie Aheen Zol Ich Gayn." Their version of "Yuges Mir Noch Amool" is decent, but I've heard better.

Oy vey, I feel like a regular meshugana trying to sort this all out.

Yeah, they act like they were just some fun time ladies, kickin' around the piano as sisters tend to do. Little did we know that when the lights went down, these girls could get a little saucy. Yowsa!

09. When the adult trapped inside the kid's body tries to dress cool, but his idea of dressing cool is trying way too hard to be cool, so then it's not really cool at all. Way to try too hard, try guy!
08. When the adult trapped inside the kid's body doesn't know how to text like a normal kid would. I mean, come on, that's weak texting sauce, bro!

05. When the adult trapped inside the kid's body is like hey (to his friends), I like cool music, and then he names a band from like 10 years ago that wasn't really cool anyway and everyone looks at him weird. Way to be a weirdo, you clod!
04. When the adult trapped inside the kid's body can't get a boner unless the prostitute eats dog food and then the prostitute becomes suspicious because it doesn't really seem like a kid would be that sexually warped yet but she stays on all fours eating the dog food out of the bowl because, y'know, he did pay for the whole hour
