The Main Damie Podcast - E3 Preview, Solo Box Office, and the Return of They Called This a Movie

May 29, 2018

It's the day after Memorial Day. You're probably at work; you're probably hungover. Avoid your responsibilities by strapping in for a brand-new episode of The Main Damie Podcast. 

This episode kicks off with some talk about what we've been up to for the past few weeks. We all went to Vegas for our good friend's wedding, so we spend some time talking about that in the preamble before we get into the topics at hand. 

We start with Video Game Corner, where Mark lets Anthony and Dan in on what will probably be going down at E3 this year. Will Microsoft unveil a new Halo? Are we going to get an N64 Classic in time for the holiday season? Our guess is as good as yours. That's how that saying goes, right? 

Speaking of wild speculation, none of us saw Solo: A Star Wars Story, but listen to us ramble about why we think it didn't break box office records this weekend. Racism? Fatigue? An oversexed populace? It could literally be anything. 

Finally, we finish off this episode with a preview of something that's upcoming for the website. Back in the early days of the website, we had a podcast show "They Called This a Movie", where we watched a movie (usually a bad one) and talked about it. Some of our best shows came out of this idea (and our sign-off is a direct reference to one of these episodes), so we're looking to bring it back in a re-tooled format. You'll have to listen to find out our plans.

The Main Damie Podcast - Our All Fiction Baseball Teams

March 21, 2018

As Dan Aquino is off in March Madness, we ask our good friend, Tom Schuster, to sit in with us for a special episode of The Main Damie podcast.

We start off by welcoming Tom to the show and allowing him to weigh in on how things are going over at Stranger Damies, our real-play D&D podcast, in which he plays Tiresias the Deceived.

We then go right into our lineups for our fictional baseball team lineups. We pull from all sorts of mediums: movies, TV, video games, cartoons, and even an elaborate April Fools' joke. There's some overlap, but each team is pretty unique.

The Main Damie Podcast - Stranger Damies, 2017 Movie Wrap-Up, and Black Panther

February 28, 2018

WE'RE BACK!!!!!! 

 

It's been a loooong day without you, my friends. But The Main Damie podcast has finally come back with a vengeance. Before we go headfirst into the topics at hand, we check in with each of our hosts to see what they've been up to. Dan got married and Mark got to celebrate a Super Bowl Championship for his beloved Eagles. Anthony doesn't mention it, but he wanted to let everyone know he got a new pair of socks in the downtime. 

Our first topic is actually an explanation of where we've been this whole time, which has been our newest venture, STRANGER DAMIES, our real-play Dungeons and Dragons podcast. We talk about what made Mark decide he wanted to start this podcast, what we thought about our first few sessions, and where we want it to go. 

From there, we backtrack to the end of 2017 and discuss some things that we missed. We let Mark and Dan talk about their favorite movies from the past year, and Anthony has some strong words for the movie that left the worst impression on him. 

Finally, we talk about Black Panther, the biggest movie of the young year. We all talk about what we liked about it and can't help but sing its praises.

The Main Damie Podcast - Mark’s Rant Edition

August 8, 2017

On this on usually rant-y episode of The Main Damie podcast, our fearless trio discusses everything from professional wrestling to San Diego Comic-con. But there is something off about this episode.

We start with Mark venting his frustration over the most recent WWE pay-per-view in Philadelphia. He seems unusually upset about the evening he spent at the Wells Fargo Center. After, we are joined by Dan, Mark poses the question that leaves the entire group in shock.

Next, we take a trip to Video Game Corner, where Mark again vents on Walmart canceling all "pre-orders" of the SNES classic. And touches on the newly released wrestling game Fire Pro, and why it is different. He also gives an update on his experience with Playerunknown's Battlegrounds.

We take a turn and shift our attention to discuss Dunkirk, and Anthony's review. We find out that Mark disagrees slightly with him giving the movie at 10/10. This is when Dan and Anthony grow concerned about Mark well-being, and why he seems rather upset this entire episode.

We finish up by discussing everything that we saw and read during San Diego Comic-Con. We mix in DC, Marvel, and everything else in the world of movies and TV that was revealed at the famous event.

Thanks again for listening and we hope you come back next week to find out if Mark finally reveals what was bothering him.

The Main Damie - Casting Carnage, Mayweather vs McGregor, and Ron Howard Directs the Han Solo Spinoff Movie

June 26, 2017

On this episode of The Main Damie Podcast, Anthony and Dan wake Mark up from his post-E3 coma to discuss comic book movies, sports, and, of course, the Electronic Entertainment Expo.

During our catching up segment, Mark reveals the worst idea for a game show he's ever heard. He concludes that since it will air over the summer on America's most watched network, Dan had something to do with it. Our fearless trio moves on from this abomination of TV, and begins a discussion about Spider-Man, Venom, Carnage, and all things in the web-slinger's universe. They dabble in some fantasy casting, and discuss why Spider-Man's villains are the best in comics.

For the first time -- I think -- in the history of the podcast, there's a discussion of a sporting event that is not wrestling. Our infallible threesome dive deep into the upcoming Mayweather-McGregor fight, and somehow the conversation turns into what they wouldn't do for $127 million. Let's just say, we learn some things about our Damiers.

They finished with Mark's recap of you E3 in Video Game Corner, and a tribute to probably the best man to wear the Bat Cowl. Obviously, no offense to Michael Keaton and Christian Bale, but only one of the actors to portray the Dark Knight was also the mayor of a Rhode Island town.
