Better In The Dark – Episode #148 – Gilt Edged Bonds: Skyfall (Guest: Russ Anderson)

A new James Bond film hit the theaters last year, which means a new edition of Gilt Edged Bonds (ironically also recorded last year).  Join Tom and Derrick as they welcome Russ ‘I liked Quantum of Boredom’ Anderson to dissect the Bond Rubber Match for Daniel Craig.  Does this new entry prove that the Reign Of Craig shakes with awesomeness or is stirred with suckitude?  Why is the pet name The Boys Outta Brooklyn have for his second film inaccurate?  How does this Bond stack up against the classic versions of the show?  You know you don’t want to waste good scotch, so get to clicking (and don’t forget to follow us on Twitter at @BITDShow)!

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – Champions & Chumps (Guest: Rich Miller)

The playoffs are the season for breakout performers, eternal moments, and dreams turned into reality. Conversely, the playoffs are also the season for disappointment, eternal shame, and nightmares fueled by choke jobs to last a lifetime. A Buzz-Saw tends to appreciate the latter.

Mike “the Buzz-Saw” Asti and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo dive right into the NHL and NBA playoffs, with a focus, on not only the teams still vying for a championship, but also the teams that are left with that bitter taste all offseason.

Your favorite sports genius’ are not alone on this installment, as they welcome Rich Miller of ESPN 970 Pittsburgh to the HBS ring. Rich coves the Penguins year round. And will give his insight on the Pittsburgh squad, dealing with soap opera like drama and pressure during their quest to sip from hockey’s holy grail.

Are the Red Wings capable of knocking off the Blackhawks, in another battle of historic rivals? How will New York vs. Boston look on the ice? And have the Los Angeles Kings switched into that 2012 playoff unbeatable swag?

As for those setting tee times on the golf course, the Toronto Maple Leafs are STILL one of sports darling cursed franchises (much to Mike’s enjoyment), and Alexander Ovechkin wins the honor of asinine buffoon of the week.

Over on the NBA side of things, did the Grizzlies truly earn their first ever conference finals trip or was it aided by a depleted Thunder effort? Realistically, is there any possible way Miami doesn’t repeat as champions? Can anyone but Carmelo score on the Knicks?

Tiger Tiger Woods ya’ll. Tiger is the 2013 Players champion. What does this mean in his pursuit of majors? Sergio Garcia whined to make the TW celebration that much better too.

They never choke. They NEVER disappoint. The Howitzer and Buzz-saw always conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Howitzer & Buzz-Saw Show – A Boiled Over Crock-Pot

Photo courtesy of Grantland.

Tensions are high and tempers are flaring lately all over the sports world. This is all right up Mike “the Buzz-Saw” and George “the Howitzer” Gerbo’s alley. With both the NBA and NHL in full on playoff mode, you better believe we are stock pilled with historic moments, controversy, and you guessed it, asininity.

Now in the second round, entertainment and action are at premium in the NBA. Are the Heat at all worried going to Chicago in a tied series? Ughhhh. And of course, should Derrick Rose return to try to upset the defending champs? The guys may groan and moan throughout this segment, but promise to get through it. Stephon Curry blasted 40 and 11, yet lost. Then in a full team effort the Golden State Warriors beat the Spurs, to even their series. Who has the upper hand? Can Kevin Durant keep throwing the Thunder on his back, despite a continued depleted supporting cast? Oh, and it’s Knicks – Pacers with Spike Lee in the stands and Reggie Miller on commentary. You can’t ask for much better than that.

From the hardwood to the ice, NHL teams are fighting for the right to claim Lord Stanley’s Cup. There’s been much brutality. There’s been much debate. Yup, it’s just another gauntlet that is the Stanley Cup Playoffs. How much trouble are the stacked Penguins in against the never say die upstart Islanders? Want controversy, or as we say on the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw Show, a Buzz-spiracy? This is the series loaded up with it. Does Sidney Crosby dive? Does Sidney Crosby whine? Is there a conscious effort by the league to lean towards 87 with calls? NBC “personality” and 500 goal scorer, Jeremy Roenick thinks so. Have the Kings been revitalized? Are the Red Wings dead? And Montreal and Ottawa HATE each other.

Mike conquers curing voice strains with pineapple juice, much like the Howitzer and Buzz-Saw conquer sports radio, one day, at a time…

The Promos By Hyphen 2013 WWE Year End Awards Part 1

I’ve wanted to do some type of awards article for the longest time now. Then that turned into doing an awards podcast, but Thomas and I never brought that to fruition (my fault, I was too busy making music). Then the idea got away from me until I realized what just passed: WrestleMania NY/NJ (XXIX!).

Better In The Dark – Episode #8: Trust In Harryhausen But Tie Up Your Camel

Ray Harryhausen
June 29, 1920 – May 7, 2013

“What if they’re more heroes like him? What if courage and imagination became everyday mortal qualities? What will become of us?”

Thomas and Derrick take a swashbuckling trip down memory lane as they discuss the Sinbad trilogy of Ray Harryhausen! From The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad to Sinbad and The Eye of The Tiger, the Boys Outta Brooklyn go in-depth on why stop motion animation rocks, why John Phillip Law’s version of Sinbad is a dick, and why Caroline Munro is the hottest woman ever! (7/9 Addendum: Shortly after posting this episode, we learned that Kerwin Matthews, who is discussed in this episode, passed away. This episode is respectfully dedicated to his memory.)

Better In The Dark – Episode #147: BITD Autopsy on NBC

BITD 147 Photo Final
In light of the National Broadcasting Corporation’s coming in fifth place behind Telemundo, Tom and Derrick once again take their scalpels out to try and figure out why one of the major networks is in a downward spiral!  The Boys Outta Brooklyn examine how such incidents as the Conan O’Brien/Jay Leno conflagration, the revolving show runner messes, and the decision to dumb down the network as a whole  resulted in the former home of Must See TV spiraling out of control!  Plus, Tom sings ‘Late Night Pie,’ Derrick defends Celebrity Apprentice, and vampires with light bulbs!  You know you don’t want a TV show at 2:30 a.m., so get to clicking!
