A night at the Hotel Coral Essex with Wormser and the best of 1978, 1983 & 1995!

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

If you're like us, you adored Revenge of the Nerds growing up. Love it or hate it, there is no denying it was iconic 80s comedy! That being said, since we were all youngins when it came out in 1984, the only character that we could really relate to was Wormser! So as we were discussing Revenge of the Nerds a few weeks ago, Joe Findlay said "see if Andrew Cassese wants to be a judge". Great idea, Joe! We sent Andrew a message, and he was totally down to be a guest judge! Without hesitation, we booked a room at the HOTel cORAL eSEXx, and passed over the gavel to Andrew! After a month off, it's been a while since we did a "best of" month, and we forgot just how closely contested these months can be. Since Joe suggested Andrew to be on the show, he came equipped with the best of October, 1983! Our good pal Beau Becraft is back in the fold, and we put him right in his wheelhouse with an October 1995 that only Beau could deliver. Rounding out the panel, Mancrush comes with a spooky October, 1978!

Andrew brings out his inner Wormser, and utilized his superior intellect to navigate this extremely close battle of decades! In this episode you might find out: Wormsers fondest memories from being a tri-lamb, a restaurant that broaches on judge pandering, a major band plays a show for three people, Andrew interrupts a bronco chase, Joe surprises no one by bringing more death, the birth of the stink palm, real Bond goes bootleg Bond, an independent movie kills the competition, the Jets get embarrassed by an expansion team, evil robot clones takeover Magic Mountain, Tony Manero was not the best costume of 1978, a Yokozuna doubleheader no one asked for, a computer program kills the typewriter, douche brothers create a masterpiece, Mancrush duets with Wormser, Captain Lou makes a cameo, Andrew is NOT Bret Spiner, the difference between Adams College and Fort Lauderdale, Wormer cleans up at the Greek games, Wormser's stand-in shows up intoxicated, and what was it like to be a kid on the set of Revenge of the Nerds?

Judge Jamie Kennedy returns to break down this duel between 1974, 1984, & 1993!

He might not be back in Scream 5, but he's back again on Dueling Decades! Fresh off a photoshoot, Jamie Kennedy joins the game show once again! With a fresh tea in one hand and a gavel in the other, Jamie sits down poolside to judge another retro battle this week. It's not just any retro battle though, this episode is all about "games". Video games, board games, Tiddlywinks, any game you can think of! Our first competitor needs little introduction, Drew Zakmin has brought some fierce competition of late, and it won't end this week with the best games of 1974. Marc James has also been tearing things up of late, and he brings some primo games from 1993. Rounding out the competition this week, Mancrush is back after dominating last week, but will he build upon that impressive performance? We shall see, as he brought the finest games 1984 had to offer. 

Jamie was so awesome to come back and chill with the guys! They did feel bad for chatting him up for two hours, but it was well worth it. This episode is packed with all kinds of goodies: a video game that got away with ripping off the planet, Swedes that can really sing, a former Vice President pens an unlikely hit, prison yard basketball at the arcade, an elementary school fight club, an unbelievable streak by a great Canadian, a TV show that Joey Fatone ripped off, a kid's show that's being rebooted for adults, two giants change the toy industry, long balls, death threats, too much blood for the mother's of America, the most violent "kids" movie ever created, Roger Moore might have been a bit of a stretch for Drew, a Yankee with three nipples, movies that Jamie didn't think came out planned, questions Jamie hates getting asked, Millenials love Son of the Mask, Randy is dead, Disney almost made a beloved horror flick, Jamie almost went rafting with Seth Green,why working on movies is better than TV, megalomaniacal principals, the grandpa of fighting games, a couple plumbers from Brooklyn make a movie, and what the hell is a "bagpuss"?!

Original video vixen Tawny Kitaen shows off her judging skills on this duel between 1975, 1987 & 1994!

We're excited to introduce Tawny Kitaen, the original video vixen from the 1980s who was kind enough to stop by the show. Even though the guys woke her from her slumber, she's still here and ready to swing the gavel as our guest judge; live from her bed. Mike Ranger took some time away from the Video Rangers podcast to bring the best week he could conjure up from mid-July 1994. His first opponent, Joe Findlay of Miscast Commentary is back with his first-ever helping from the 1970s, as he brings his week for the ages from mid-July 1975. Back on a losing skid again, Mancrush looks to find his mojo with his best offering from mid-July 1987. This episode is packed with nostalgic goodies! 

Tawny was so extremely happy to be awoken by these three hooligans that she even offered them one of her new exclusive candles for the Podcast New York studio. She loved them that much, but will she love the picks that much? Bet your bottom she did! In this episode, you may find stories about Tawny nitpicking a pitcher's decisions, the best things you can buy for a dollar, a movie no one really liked, cartoons from the 70s, a musicians philanthropy, a metal god's first show, cake and sodomy, Tawny wants Taco Bell, a kingdom collapses, everyone loves the long ball, obscure comic books, another big weird ball, a game you can't play in the backseat of a car at night, a spokesmodel that outshined his or her product, another multicolored ball no one in the US cares about, David Lee Roth's insatiable appetite, one man's trash is another man's treasure, a good movie that seems to be forgotten, a collection of legends, Tawny marries Joe and divorces him, and what's in the box, and what does it smell like??

Episode 86 · 4 months ago

Chris Barron of the Spin Doctors is here to oversee this battle between 1989, 1991 and 1999!

Marc James is a Spin Doctors superfan, and nothing was going to hold him back from being on this episode of Dueling Decades, not even when his Internet lines get cut! That's right, the gods were against us for this recording. Two hours before our recording with Chris Barron, Marc's Internet lines got cut in a crazy construction snafu, then Mancrush's network card took a dump 30 minutes before call time! That said, we adapted, and we overcame! No pandemic, cut Internet, or faulty computers were going to stop us from recording this episode. But, just in case Joe Findlay from the Miscast Commentary Podcast is here on backup!  With the contest underway, Marc stacked the deck to impress Chris Barron with his 21st birthday of 1999! Drew Zakmin from the One Headlight 90's podcast is back with the funnest 11th birthday he could muster from 1991! And to round everything out, Mancrush is looking to find another lucky shirt with his own 11th birthday from 1999! 

It's been a whole lot easier since tonight's gremlins are gone, it's a whole lot happier without their faces around! Chris Barron is still rocking on his live "Thirsty Thursday" shows on StageIt, make sure to drop on in. Don't worry, the Spin Doctors are still together as well, and he gives us some deep musical introspective on the past and present! It doesn't end there though, find out how the Spin Doctors came to be, Mancrush's second favorite Kickboxer of 1989, wearing operating room attire to dinner, the best way to conceal your peppermint schnapps, three teens that could have saved Al Capone from syphilis, two nearly identical stories about an ageless legend, a beastly beverage we've all purchased, our wives keep our childhood memories in the basement, watch Wapner wherever you want, knockoff birthday gifts, showing up at a movie and your song is unknowingly in it, dark 90's music, the birth of a musical legend, a reptile that looks like John Goodman, a musician you put on when you turn the lights down, things you do in the passenger's seat of your best friends vehicle, things people say about Chris' bandmates, playing games in a Craftmatic adjustable bed, snitches get stitches, Marc uses AOL instant messenger to meet a stranger in New York City, and what is it like to know your album is basically available anywhere you go?
