It’s been some time since my last episode and honestly it’s been hard to find the time with life, family, work and other podcasts I’m involved with . I’ve mentioned on this show that I’m one of the hosts on the Negative Splits Podcast and along with our normal release shows I’ll be doing a bonus episode on the Splits feed Title “The Dutch Diaries”. This new series is going to be filling the spot of what would be my solo Average Runner episodes here, I plan to make them a hybrid of the two shows both covering my own training as well as some fun stuff. Here is the first episode released a few weeks ago title “Drop the Beat”. There is a link in the show notes to The Negative Splits Podcast or you can search for us in Itunes or any other place you get your podcasts.

We have a super fun show ahead of us this week. We start off with another conversation with Hollywood Legend Johnny 5. He reveals some casting details from his movie as well as telling us the story of how him and AB Silver Met
From there we talk about a movie I saw called Death Wish. During the intro I say Anhilation but this dang flu threw everything out of wack and I saw Death Wish instead..
Then it’s on to the main event of the show where we dig in a and talk one of my favorite topics.. GI Joe. We go over the entire 2st series of Action Figures! Everyone from Clutch to Zap! It’s a ton of fun!
On the final segment of the show we talk a few different things, Filet Of Fish, dipping sauce, Tab Cola, Becky Lynch and Gino Vega joining The Bullet Club. It’s a really fun ending for what turned out to be an awesome show!

Two different films but perfect for our genre loving interests.

In this episode Greg and George look at the SNES port of a game belonging to the most famous Computer RPG of all time — Ultima VI: The False Prophet! One of the most talked about and successful games in the long running Ultima franchise, many of the games got ported to consoles. We examine the differences between the original PC version and the SNES port, how the game plays on a controller vs a mouse and keyboard, and if it holds up today. Any questions, comments, suggestions, etc. can be left on our FB page or e-mailed to the email@example.com and as always thanks for your support!

Bleed For This was a 2016 film based on the life of boxer Vinnie Pazienza. The movie stars Miles Teller as Vinnie Paz and contains some of the truest movie wisdom I’d seen or heard in years.
It’s all about doing things that people say you can’t. That’s something we’ve all faced at least once or twice in our lives..
Take a listen and see how Vinnie Paz came back from a life threatening car accident to regain the world championship when everyone around him told him that “It’s not that easy”
