This week it's all about DCOMs, baby, that's Disney Channel Original Movies for you casuals. We cover the best and the worst and attempt to put together a definitive top 5 list in the process. Turns out the last part is a lot harder than we imagined. Also, a disagreement over whether Johnny Tsunami is memorable or not almost tears us apart even though one of us may or may not have been thinking of an entirely different movie their entire life, tune in to find out who!
The b-b-boys are back again! This week we're talking about those musical accompaniments that really set the whole tone of the movies you love: the soundtrack. Most of the time you see a dope movie, it's almost a given it's also going to have a dope soundtrack. It's rare, but sometimes an absolute garbage film can put out a compilation of heat too! This episode started as an exploration into some of the most memorable soundtracks, it mainly just ended up as karaoke, but it's still a vibe. Tune in to hear us know some of the words to the greatest soundtrack bops of all time!
Game shows get their own special episode even though they're essentially just reality shows with prizes. We had no idea they could inspire such deep philosophical thoughts. Would you sell out your morals for a million dollars? Are sports game shows? Why were all the grand prizes for Nickelodeon game shows just a trip back to the theme park you're already at? We tackle all these pressing questions and more this week.
This week we're breaking down the best of reality shows, which by default is also the worst. Reality shows aren't great and you know what, we're okay with that. Not everything can bring out the best in you all the time, sometimes you just need some absolute trash in your life and for those times: reality shows. We won't lie to you, one show gets a lot more focus than the rest, see if you can guess which one. We cap the episode off strong with some original reality show pitches from Semaj, so if you see one of these shows on TV you know where they stole it from!
Shouts out to all the dads worldwide. Happy Father's Day to all y'all and our very own, Semaj! This episode we're honoring all the dads across every media platform, even the terrible ones, because...you gotta take the good with the bad. We were hard-pressed to find a lot of worthy picks, apparently pop culture is just full of swaggerless dads. But, fear not, we've still got a solid list of Top Pops that we think stand out above the rest. Come fox with your boys for another one!
We took a week off out of respect and solidarity for the events going on around the world, but the b-b-boys are back again! And this week we're revisiting video games, talking about franchises. The ones so good that they had to come back with 2, 3, 4, 5 of them. There's probably a lot of popular takes you won't hear on this list, mainly because you can go anywhere for those, we know you come to the Tighgeist Boys for those exclusive deep cuts mixed in...and also there's just a lot of awesome video game franchises and there's no way to cover them all. Also, Trent may or may not be drunk during this episode, tune in and see if you can tell.
My fellow pop culture aficionados, we took a week off, but now we're back in full effect with the State of the Culture address! There's a lot that's been going on in pop culture, and just culture in general these days, some good...some not so good. It's hard to keep up with it all, but luckily that's where we come in. This episode we break down some of the bigger trends of the year so far. We take the good with the bad and let you know what's hitting and what's trash in the way only Tightgeist can!
Long story short, somebody messed up the recording for this week's originally planned topic after we’d already gotten through the entire thing *cough* Trent *cough* but luckily everyone was still at the mic, so we just decided to riff on some random topics and random they were. This episode hits on a little bit of everything from Hot Pockets to Florida to J. Cole, we got takes for days! It’s a very Seinfeldian episode, we're talking about everything and nothing all at once.
First of all, shout out to all the moms, step moms, soon-to-be moms and especially our moms! In honor of the awesomeness of motherhood, this week we're talking about a group that gets overlooked often on this holiday just because "they aren't real" or "their families don't actually exist", that's right: TV moms matter too! There are literally way too many dope mothers out there to choose from so we're going rapid fire again and talking about as many of our favorites as we can. Stay tuned after the end of the episode for a special Mother's Day serenade from your boys!
This week we take a slight departure from the normal format of offering up our takes on what the "best" is and just have a rapid fire riff session about some of the dopest toys from back in the day. From Furbies to Poo-Chis to Super Soakers, these are all toys, but we don't talk about any of those here. Come check out what did make our list and revisit some of your favorites, or just listen to us rant about some gems you never even heard about, whatever you want. It's a real do-what-you-feel kinda episode, we're accepting all vibes over here!
