GamerGate, Let’s Be Facundo and WWF Superstars: The many appearances of Classick

Classick (that’s me) has appeared on a number of other podcasts outside of the CSPN of late. Here’s a quick run-down, in case you missed them:

Spawn On Me Episode 29: This is Classick

I recently set up shop in Brookago as a guest on the Spawn On Me gaming podcast, co-hosted by Kahlief and my old college buddy Cicero. We reminisce about our Tecmo Super Bowl NES days and then give our opinions on the upcoming NBA Live, NHL and Destiny game releases. Finally, we have a lengthy discussion about GamerGate and the trouble surrounding it. Recently featured in Black Enterprise, Spawn On Me is great podcast with two awesome hosts!

Geeks With Color Podcast 109 – Let’s Be Facundo

In this episode I join the Geeks Q and Samuel and we talk about Brock Lesnar, Racist Vince McMahon, both Nick & Jake Johnson, as well as a review of Let’s Be Cops. We also talk about Keke Palmer and the happenings in Ferguson. Bartles & Jaymes, everyone!

EDP312 – WWF Superstars of Wrestling


Finally, Classick was recently a guest on Cold Slither Podcast co-founder eclectik’s show, where the two CSP vets talk about The Superstars era of the WWF (1986-1996), when it was all about the Madness, the Mania and Doink the Clown!

Stranded on Classick Isle (The League)

This week’s assignment from the League of Extraordinary Bloggers….

league logo

You are stranded for 10 years on a deserted island. You can take with you the following:
One food item (in a never-ending supply), one movie, one game, and one pop culture character. 

Oh, the time-honored stranded on a deserted island question… let’s just say that I’ve mentally imagined several versions of this scenario over the years. For this line-up, I went with things that were either greatly desired or practical. As with most lists, ask me this same question next week and my answers may change…

(+ be sure to checkout the Atomic Geeks Podcast if you aren’t already a listener!)

Food: Curry Goat Roti


OK, so spending a decade on a deserted island means certain food items will already be accessible. I’m assuming there will be lots of vegetation and flora about, so I’m handled on the greens front. The occasional fish, shrimp and conch will also prove attainable, depending on my Castaway skills. So that leaves room for a food item that I would eat at any hour of the day and is not likely found anywhere in those confines. I go with a nice and filling curry goat roti, filled with rice, chick peas, potato. Hell, if I can get them to throw some spinach or callaloo in there as well, bonus! This is a West Indian dish that I would never turn down and hell, I’m on an island, might as well eat something from my heritage! If you’ve never had a roti, well think of it as the West Indian version of a burrito, only without the sour cream and guac. And even though you can have it with beef or chicken, I choose goat because that’s my favorite meat. Curried only, please, and it must be prepared by either my mother or some other West Indian mother.

Runners-up: Items from the Chick-fil-A or Chipotle menus, Ranch sunflower seeds, Pistachio nuts, any authentic New York pizza (not just “New York-style”, I want some Famous Original Ray’s or Original Famous Ray’s or Joe’s Pizza where Peter Parker got fired from in Spider-Man 2!)

Movie: Starship Troopers(1997)


A decade of a movie that I can watch any time I choose. I either assume I’ll have control of when this airs (A deserted island with a remote? How convenient!), however even if this movie were to air repeatedly on endless loop, I’d like to have one where I can jump in on any scene and enjoy. Starship Troopers is a popular ’90s sci-fi cult classic that furthered the careers of Neil Patrick Harris (making his comeback since Doogie Howser, M.D.), Denise Richards (fresh off showing her bits in Wild Things) and turning Casper Van Dien, Dina Meyer and Jake Busey (who later went on to star in Shasta McNasty and inherited Dad Gary’s signature row of madman teeth) into household names.

The Best and Worst of Voice Sampling in Video Games [YouTube]

Found this video on YouTube the other day. Some of our favorites from the old days made the best and worst lists. Back then, it was rather groundbreaking to play a video game and hear actual human voices in it, even if they were, well…. suspect at times.
