For Just 5 Bucks You Can Watch All The Boomerang Cartoons You Can Handle

Yesterday I heard people will be able to buy all pink packs of Starburst. I didn’t think it could get any better…until today.

“Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, the Flintstones and other cartoon favorites will play a starring role in a new subscription-video service version of Boomerang, from Time Warner’s Turner and Warner Bros.

The Boomerang internet-video service — which will not carry any ads — will launch sometime in the spring of 2017, priced starting at $4.99 per month. It marks the first time the two companies have offered the WB-owned animation library of 5,000-plus titles from Hanna-Barbera, Looney Tunes and MGM on a streaming platform. New and classic shows on the service will include “Bugs Bunny,” “Scooby-Doo,” “Tom & Jerry,” “The Jetsons” and “The Flintstones,” with content rotated weekly.”

Let me paint the picture for you. You wake up (hopefully) Saturday morning. Your head is throbbing and your overall life is in complete shambles. There are a few immediate essential lifelines (that are legal) I can think of: blue gatorade, greasy food, and fucking vintage Boomerang cartoons. People my age are going to spin classes, wineries, having weddings. I don’t need any of those in my life. What I do need are 70 year old cartoons while I sit in my boxers and eat hardened leftover Dominos from the night before. $5? What a steal, that’s Flintstone pricing right there. I mean how do you put a price on being able to watch ‘The Jetsons’ whenever you so please? I don’t know about you but this April you can find me in a dark room with the blinds down eating pink starburst by the pound watching vintage cartoons. Things are looking up!

It’s Lit!: Dinosaurs Set To Take Over Philly

Jurassic Park is coming to Philly baby. Yes you read that right, Jurassic Park is legit coming to the city of Philadelphia. The Franklin Institute will be hosting the first American exhibit for “Jurassic World: The Exhibition” starting November 25th up until April.

“Jurassic World: The Exhibition is a conceptual endeavor, with attendees being given the impression that they are VIP guests on Jurassic World’s Isla Nublar during the events of the 2015 film.

Attendees will explore the constructed Isla Nublar park, complete with informational exhibits, guides, and life-size animatronic dinosaurs. And, yes, that includes the beloved Tyrannosaurus Rex and Velociraptor,  as well as a Brachiosaurus — the 24-foot herbivore that sneezed dino goo all over our heroes in the original Jurassic Park.

Guests will also be able to take a peak at the Creation Lab, where they can get an informational look at the real science of dinosaur DNA. Plus, don’t miss the final battle between the exhibit’s Indominus Rex and a Stegosaurus.”

This is such a power move from the Franklin Institute I don’t even know what to say. Pretty sure I haven’t been there since I was ruining the lives of my teachers during the field trip days but there is a 0% of me or any respectable human being missing this (unless you’re afraid, I kinda am too but I’m still going). There is nothing this immature 24 year old is looking forward to more than crushing enough beers to kill a T-Rex and running rampant thru Jurassic fucking Park. Forget pitching in the World Series or being President, this is the ultimate dream of our youth.

WARNING: Gratzfeed heavily discourages the use of psychedelics for this event. There will be young children there and YOU don’t want to be the one who shits their pants. Please enjoy responsibly.

MTV Bringing Back The Nineties With “MTV Classic”

Beginning August 1, MTV will be replacing “VH1 Classic” with “MTV Classic” and there couldn’t be any news that can possibly make me happier.

“After revisiting the 1981 debut, MTV Classic will flit through programming history, looking back at Total Request Live and airing the “most memorable” installments of MTV Unplugged, including episodes featuring Nirvana, Erykah Badu and Bob Dylan. Primetime will feature several popular animated shows, including Beavis & Butt-head and Aeon Flux. On the weekends, the channel plans to serve up “binge-worthy marathons” of shows like Real World and Laguna Beach.”

Beavis_and_Butt-head_titlecard

Sign me the fuck up. ‘Beavis and Butt-head’ is one of my all time guilty pleasures, right up there with coke in a glass bottle and Mystikal. Combine 90’s ‘Real World’ marathons with McDonalds all day breakfast and you truly unlock a whole new level of life. Word on the street is ‘Pimp My Ride’ and ‘Cribs’ will make their return too. And lets not forget ‘Daria’, show was really ahead of its time. I’m calling a massive resurgence of that chick and for her to be the face of depressed and weird chicks all across America. I’m down. If you don’t hear from me by the time football season starts… don’t call the authorities, I’ll have the AC on and my favorite tv shows.

Walter White To Play Zordon In Upcoming Power Rangers Movie

Bryan Cranston, perhaps best known for his role as meth cooking Walter White in ‘Breaking Bad’ is set to join the cast of the new Power Rangers Movie as ‘Zordon’, the groups mentor.

Fuck. Yeah. Don’t get me wrong I was going to see this bad boy regardless but adding Cranston to the cast is just icing on the cake. No better person to lead the young group of warriors than the wise and experienced drug dealing kingpin Walter White. Badass actor leading a badass crew. Love it. By the way look how friggen formidable the upcoming squad looks below. This romp is scheduled to hit theaters in March, 2017.

‘Hey Arnold’ Movie Actually A Thing

So I was on the internet (I’m on there every now and again ) and saw that there’s a ‘Hey Arnold’ movie coming out. I didn’t get too excited though because lets face it the internet is about as reliable as the condoms my parents used in ’92. But now I’m feeling more and more amped as it turns out this movie looks like it’s actually going to happen.

“Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie” picks up from where the original series left off in 2004 and will resolve unanswered questions and plotlines — including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents.

 “Original voice actors Francesca Marie Smith will return as Helga; Anndi McAfee as Phoebe; Justin Shenkarow as Harold; Olivia Hack as Rhonda; Nika Futterman as Olga; Dan Butler as Mr. Simmons; “The Simpsons” vet Dan Castellaneta as Grandpa; Tress MacNeille as Grandma; Antoinette Stella as Stella; Carlos Alazraqui as Eduardo; Dom Irrera as Ernie; Maurice LaMarche as Bob Pataki; Kath Soucie as Miriam; Danielle Judovits as Big Patty; Danny Cooksey as Stoop Kid; Jim Belushi as Coach Wittenberg; and Craig Bartlett as Miles.Arnold, and many of the kid characters from the original cartoon, will be voiced by new actors. Mason Vale Cotton will play the title character; Benjamin “L’il P-Nut” Flores Jr. will voice Gerald; Gavin Lewis as Eugene; Jet Jurgensmeyer as Stinky; Aiden Lewandowski as Sid; Laya Hayes as Nadine; Nicolas Cantu as Curly; Wally Wingert as Oskar; and Stephen Stanton as Pigeon Man.

The original voice of Arnold, Lane Toran, and the original voice of Gerald, Jamil Smith, will lend their voices to several other roles.”

Seems pretty fucking legit to me. Hey Arnold is an all time classic, it’s shows like this that taught my generation values, taught us how to think and act like human beings. I learned the harsh reality at a tender age from Ronnie Matthews that celebrities aren’t always the person they appear to be on TV. The show also put me on to the fact that most girls are being a total bitch to me because they really, really like me. It’s so easy to tell right off the bat if a person watched Hey Arnold growing up or not. People who use the words “safe space”, or “participation trophy” most certainly didn’t get their daily dosage of Nick during their childhood.  Here’s where my anxiety starts to kick in though… think about the kind of person you were when you originally watched the show vs how you’ll be watching the new movie. It’s actually depressing. For instance, at 8 years old I was an ambitious, good natured kid who liked baseball and video games. Watching it a year from now? 25 years old, scrolls on Instagram and sees a college classmate getting married, smokes cigarettes during the commercial breaks. Damn. Hopefully shit went south with some of the other characters too so i won’t feel like a total piece of garbage. Maybe Harold knocked some girl up from Tinder or Phoebe let a scholarship go down the drain because of an addictive personality. Who knows!? This made for TV movie could be just the pick me up our generation needs.

Review: The Big Short

With big time blockbusters dominating headlines this time of year, ‘The Big Short’ might be flying under the radar just a bit despite the insanely stacked cast. There’s no Han Solo, Katniss Everdeen, or any chipmunks named Alvin, but the aforementioned crew can be likened to a starting lineup of the NBA Western Conference on any given year. Christian Bale, Steve Carrell, Ryan Gosling and Brad Pitt lead the way for a story about the housing bubble of the 00’s. One of the most intriguing things about this picture is that it’s directed by Adam McKay, yes, the same Adam McKay who made Anchorman and Step Brothers. And while this film is funny at times, it’s more of a drama and a far cry from his works of the past. Well?

Simply put, the fact that that guy made this movie is beyond impressive. McKay, like the cast, crushes it and delivers an entertaining film about an interesting subject matter that could however, become extremely boring and confusing if not done properly (which can happen easily). So as I mentioned it’s about the housing bubble, basically a bunch of different groups of people see the way the market is trending and bet against it while exploring why and how this momentous crash came about.

The good: It simplifies the material in a refreshing and often times hysterical way. Sometimes it does get confusing but the thing to remember is that’s the whole point! Nobody knew what the fudge was going on and with all this crazy lingo and bullshit it’s only appropriate for you to sit there scratching your head, that’s kind of a big part of the message. The cast is just as good as it sounds. If you watch Entourage, think Steve Carrell as a less flashy, average Joe- Ari Gold and Ryan Gosling as a Wall Street Scotty Lavin. The cast besides the heavy hitters also knock it out of the park and complement the all stars perfectly. It’s funny and entertaining, while being informative and thought provoking, which is a rare combination of qualities to find all packaged together. It’s hip and at times sexy and while not as raunchy as “The Wolf Of Wall Street”, it does reference trendy stars and places like _______ and Nobu (sorry, can’t give away the cameos). The reason i compare it to Wolf is because they both are wild and insane depictions of things that actually happened in real life, both dealing with money and large scale institutions. I laughed, I was entertained, and I feel more enlightened about a major aspect of American history, what more could you ask for?

The bad: Not much. While it was funny at times there were never any big time extended knee slappers. This is nitpicking because it deals with a serious subject and is a drama after all but if they were adding comedy to it anyways they could have had a scene that makes you lose it. Also, while it was dramatic and thought provoking, it just wasn’t as “strong” as it could have been. Again, this is nitpicking as at the end of it (and during it) you find yourself saying “holy shit” but not like, “HOLY SHIT!!!”. Get it?

The verdict: Great movie. As I mentioned before I laughed, learned, and was entertained for over two hours. Distinguished performances all around make this one a can’t miss. There’s a strong message here, watch and learn.

Grade: Somewhere between a B+ and A-, I can’t decide. Fuck it, I’m in the holiday spirit.

Dude Allegedly Kills His Friend After Drunk Binge Watching ‘The Walking Dead’

A New Mexico man is being charged with murder after allegedly killing his friend after a marathon session of drinking and watching ‘The Walking Dead’.

According to KOB 4 News, 23-year-old Damon Perry was drunk and binge-watching the gory AMC hit on Thursday when he believed his friend Christopher Paguin had begun to join the ranks of the undead.

Perry attacked Paguin with fist, feet, an electric guitar and a microwave. He told police that he thought he was stopping a transformation from human to zombie, as well as a zombie apocalypse. Perry also threatened others in his complex with a knife before he was subdued by maintenance workers and officers arrived on the scene.”

If you’re laughing, stop. My friends and I once played a drinking game for ‘American Horror Story’ our senior year at 83 Sicard where everyone had to take a shot each time the word “supreme” was said. Being over a year removed from college and suddenly all mature and shit now I can tell you that was one of the most dangerous and juvenile stunts ever pulled. Something bad could have happened that night. Nana could have bit off Akhil’s head. Borenstein could have stabbed Hammer with a handle of TC (oh wait never mind because they’re fucking plastic but you still get the point). What a fascinating choice of weapons used, guitar AND microwave, definitely the most diverse lineup of murder instruments I’ve seen in a while. This could could be the beginning of a very terrifying epidemic in America. Do you know how many crazy chicks drink a bottle of wine and watch shows about scandals and cheating boyfriends? It’s all fun and Netflix and chill memes until some poor schmuck comes home from work one day and finds his nut sack sandwiched in a hair straightener. I also don’t think this guy actually thought his boy was turning into a zombie. I think what really happened here was he was heating up a hot pocket in the microwave and bit into it before it got a chance to cool and the effects sent him off the handle into a fit of rage…unless they were also on bath salts, then the zombie transformation totally seems plausible. Also, just want to say how lame I think these shows are, never got into em and probably never will. Did I give them a fair chance and actually sit down to watch them? No, but I like my horror entertainment to feature horny leprechauns and killer dolls, but that’s just me. Remember everyone, please binge responsibly.
