The 2010 GBG Extreme Christmas Extravaganza!

Ever since our creation, The Good, The Bad and the Geeky have been doing a big Christmas show in lieu of the old school classic Bing Crosby or Jack Benny Christmas shows, that were more of a variety show that, you know, had sketches, musical guests, and was very nonsensical in terms of order. And this year is no different and boy howdy do we have the Christmas show for you GBG-cadets! Like last year not only do we feature the normal Nitro, Jon and DJ Meat stuff, we also got the special guests! Like our pal of the show Jt Shea, The Beatnik Turtles, 2 Drunks & a Guitar, with [scrubs] and Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence and Nick Z! So get ready to laugh with us, or, more importantly, laugh at us on...

Halloween 2010: The Voices

in this episode our heroes are missing Jon, but have no fear. Pure random silliness prevails, as always. Being the Halloween episode, Nick Nitro & Nate decide to try out something, where we talk in silly voices (Like Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force, etc) and see how long we can last doing that. On top of that and the normal Words & Fun Facts with Dj Meat, our heroes actually have a ton of e-mails, comments and tweets, and discuss what is their favorite movie or film to watch at Halloween time. What is it? What is yours? What is up with the silly voices? Where did Rick Moranis disappear to? Why is Jon sick? Do any of these questions make any sense? All this and more on this (a bit late but still hot off the griddle) episode of...

The Inception

The 2010 Comic-Con is now over, we graze over some of the news from Comic-Con in San Diego, including tales of eyes being gorged by pens, Nathan gives us his words of the episode, but then leaves the studio for a bit, so Jon and Nitro can get into Inception, which begins to lead into a whole array of conversations, like Marty Scorsese films. But the question is, who started the idea of the conversations? Was there an inception planted in Nick or Jon's mind, and by who? Is this being built up in a way that it will almost 100% let you down in the end, meaning it's all hogwash? Or maybe, just maybe, [SPOILER ALERT REDACTED!!] on this week's episode of...

Toy Story 3

Lo-and-behold, after episodes and episodes of saying he might come on, our old friend and original No Name Show co-host Nathan Haley comes on the show and offers his advice on all things, like what he thought of podcasting then and now, being on vacation, and how he can pull up the Green Hornet Trailer on his android phone. Jon and Nitro also discuss the World Cup, and what exactly happened, we discuss between Jon and Nitro, who cried at the end of Toy Story 3; a hint that might lead no where, Nitro considers the end of Toy Story 3 like jews in the concentration camp who know they're going to die. Yeeeeah. And in an effort to remain a big prick, Nitro tries to pigeon hold guest Nathan Haley into his thoughts on what REALLY happened at the end of War of The Worlds, Nathan touches on Alice in Neverland Wonderland, and we learn that Jon and Nate might need to re-watch the original Star Wars Trilogy, but why?

On top of that, Jon is still behind on L0ST and now is behind on GLEE, Nitro gives him an ultimatum on one of those shows, meanwhile Jon and Nick become interested in the new Tom Cruise movie "Knight & Day", the rip off "The Killers" (or is it?) and a Billy the Kid clip from Family Guy.

Ramblin' Men vs Chat Roulette

The world is stunned as we learned that Ricky Martin is gay. We also discuss how Jon has joined the ranks of twitter! Half-Jon wanting to join, half-your requests for him to join, come follow and join Jon at twitter.com forward slash JonBettin! As Jon waxes on about Twitter, and who he is following, Nitro desperately tries to finish his dinner of white steamed rice, tapping it off with a container of kool-aid in a Rubbermaid container that leaks all over the studio's dashboard which causes some jolts of silence (which is filled with Garfunkle and Oates). Also, we discuss the amazing podcast from character actor Stephen Tobolwowsky (from Groundhog Day as "Needlenose Ned" and recently Fox's GLEE) called the Tobolwowsky Files. Jon and Nitro begin telling funny 'dad' stories while waxing on about how there should be spring break for adults, too. There are also quick thoughts on DreamWorks' How To Train Your Dragon, Fast & Furious, and Chat Roulette. How long does it take for Nitro and Jon to see some naked guy's penis on Chat Roulette?

Jon makes it in time, after dodging police helicopters and an improperly made pizza to join Nick on the newest GBG-creme-filled-episode.  We got your e-mails on our show last week (and man, did you guys actually e-mail us... yeesh! Not sure what we were e-mailed about? Hm. <a href="http://www.gbgpodcast.com/blog/podpress_trac/web/539/0/GBG_Ep_112_How_Do_You_Spell.mp3">Listen to last week's episode</a> first.)  Moving on to more approachful topics, we discuss how Jon had a very big week last week, with <a href="http://twitter.com/tristasutter">Trista</a> linked back to Jon's surprise song to Amanda!  Which leads to the interesting idea of Jon joining twitter or having 'us' contact her to have her on the show! See what Jon's response is.  ALSO:  we go over celebrity twitters such as new found latenight hosts <a href="http://twitter.com/CraigyFerg">Craig Ferguson</a> and <a href="http://twitter.com/ConanOBrien">Conan O'Brien</a>, as well as what Cohen Brothers Film has a, barring any legal woes, Shakespearean-bent, PLUS Academy Award Noms Hurt Locker may have some problems come Sunday Night, why Samuel L.

How Do You Spell Scorsese?

Nick Nitro & Jon return from the wintery hells of the Ohio winter weather warnings and snow up to your waist to podcast another fresh and hot episode of THE GOOD THE BAD AND THE GEEKY!  This week we continue our weird trend of rolling with the punches and stuff (aka, we don't follow normal format we generally do...)  Upon our return, Jon lays it out to Nitro that he is now 100% caught up with ABC's hit show L0ST which former co-host James Dailey and Nick Nitro got him hooked on last year/summer.  Jon and Nick offer thoughts, comments, critiques, and pretty much everything but circle jerk the cast and crew of the show, before dipping into films by Martin Scorsese, the spelling of the name "Scorsese" before tackling a bit more of a serious issue per Nick, which was the Kevin Smith's 2 Fat 2 Fly debacle.  Find out what Nick, a 'safety hazard' himself has to say over the issue, and find out of Jon could be considered one too.
