Oh, Toys R Us, what happened to you? Gone are the days when your mom would take you to Toys R Us to buy a toy (just one!) and you would agonize over which toy to get. In this episode, we reminisce about stores that have come and gone.
Ho ho ho! It’s Christmas time and we take a walk down memory lane to talk about our favorite toys and games from our childhoods. We even talk about some of our favorite neighborhood games! Old mother witchy, are you ready…for this podcast?
Happy Halloween! Besides eating our wait in candy every year, we also like to watch scary movies to get into the "spirit" of Halloween. In this episode, we talk about our favorite horror movies. What horror movies would make your list?
Round 2 - FIGHT! In this episode, we challenged each other to listen to some more albums. From classics like The Cars to newer artists such as Hop Along, we talk about a wide variety of great music! Check it out!
Ah, MTV, what happened to you? You used to play so many cool music videos. We used to sit in front of the TV with our eyes glued to the screen watching classic music videos from Madonna, David Lee Roth, Duran Duran and Pat Benatar. In this episode, we reminisce about the good ol' days when the M in MTV actually stood for something!
Who remembers getting up at 7am on Saturday morning with your bowl of Cookie Crisp and watching such classics as Scooby Doo and Bugs Bunny? How about coming home from school and sitting in the front of the TV with your bowl of Alphabits and watching Thundercats and Transformers? In this episode, we talk about a bygone era when it was so great to be a kid.
Dear 80s, thank you for creating some of the best movies of all time. From Goonies to Raiders of the Lost Ark, it sure was a great time to be a kid. In this episode, we look back on our favorite movies of the 80s. Who could forget Clue or Vacation? We miss you, 80s. Please come back. Love, The Frigs.
Oh no they didn't! Oh yes, they did. In the 70s and 80s, no one batted an eyelash when certain taboo topics were discussed. Racism? Check! Homophobia? Sure! Underage sex stuff? You betcha! It was a different time back then and now some of these topics would be frowned upon. So, buckle up snowflakes, because we take a dive into topics that would no longer be cool today.
In our last episode, we gave our ourselves a challenge: to expose each other to new music! We each picked three albums (some new and some old) and we all had to listen to them and provide commentary. Did we like them? Did we hate them? We take a deep dive into each album to discuss their qualities (and Darryl takes an oddly obsessive interest in the sound quality for some reason).
To follow along, here are the albums we reviewed (all can be found on Spotify):
Sia - 1000 Forms of Fear
The Buggles - The Age of Plastic
Toni Braxton and Babyface - Love, Marriage and Divorce
Dua Lipa - Dua Lipa
Yaz - Upstairs at Eric's
Walk the Moon - What If Nothing
Morgan James - Hunter
Jurassic - Power in Numbers
Goldfrapp - Supernature
How do you consume your music? Streaming? Radio? CDs? With a little rosemary and thyme with a sprinkle of sea salt? Today's episode is all about how music consumption has changed through the years. So drag out your old turntables and vinyl records and settle down for a nice, relaxing nostalgic journey through the last 5 decades!
