    WHAT'S UP 2023!!! Dan & Manny welcome the new year by answering your questions. This episode is so random, so tangent-filled, and so classic Nostalgia Test Podcast that you'll be begging for more. They talk WWE wrestling music and superstars, living in a movie or TV show, comparing the Back to the Future DeLorean to Bill and Ted's phonebooth, who they'd cast in the infamous masterpiece Face/Off, and so much more.

    Special thanks to everyone who sent in a question. It was really fun.

Dan is confused by Sarah Jessica Parker's entire performance, is extremely tired from fighting with technology to get this episode edited and released, and has to start the Hocus Pocus 2 episode immediately, AND SO MUCH MORE!

    9. 81. Nostalgia 101: Nostalgia & Shared Experiences w/ Georg Csarmann

    In the first Nostalgia 101 episode, Dan & Manny invite Georg Csarmann to do a deep dive into the complexities of nostalgia, how it works to create community, the ways we experience nostalgia through different pieces of media, and how the term was coined. It's time to go to school! 

    Georg Csarmann Bio: Narratives and the contextualization of information are at the heart of Georg's life purpose, either through storytelling or content curation. Based on his experience as a filmmaker, writer, media academic and film programmer, he wants to cut through the noise of media overabundance and create a meaningful way for other people to experience films & TV."

They try to figure out why Andy Samberg & John Mulaney are voicing Chip n' Dale, is this just Roger Rabbit 2, will this movie be nothing more than a hyped-up cameo-fest, and is the Batman franchise merely a nostalgic trap we continue to fall for with each new movie.

They talk about how there are no rules to the physical challenges, the comedic genius of Marc Summers, and how the kid contestants weren't siblings OR friends, which makes Double Dare even more awkward!

    Here are the links to the 3 Double Dare episodes mentioned: 

    They also talk about: 

    • The OG 1976 Double Dare.
    • Why wouldn't you take the physical challenge?

    We recorded this on October 13th, 2020 on Zoom so there are some small sound discrepancies. Also, apparently, Zoom shut off Dan's external mic, so his voice is a bit weird on this one. Sorry , but don't worry, the content still rocks!

    74. 16. Killer Klowns From Outer Space w/ Steve Herrera

    Dan & Manny welcome their second guest, longtime friend, and killer musician Steve Herrera on their first Spooky Season episode to put the 1988 "horror" movie Killer Klowns From Outer Space to the ULTIMATE TEST! This episode has everything, minus any sort of logic, but what do expect when you're talking about a horror film with a soft-core porn plotline. Dan, Manny, and Steve attempt to make sense of the worst character names of all time, why no one will just leave this town, and what's with the drugstore owner!? RUN THE F*** OUT OF THERE! (You'll see). 

    Oh, and if you think they didn't bring up Matt Antoniou, you're wrong. ----more----

    They also get into:

    • Q-Zar
    • Did Independence Day copy this entire film?
    • Mike Tabacco. Yep, that's right, a character called Mike Tabacco. 
    • What's with Mooney? 
    • The genius that is Rich & Paul. 
    • Why is Debbie taking a shower if there are Killer Klowns out there? 

    And much much more!

    77. 13. Point Break

    This week's episode of The Nostalgia Test Podcast is an epic one, and rightfully so because Dan & Manny put the 1991 Keanu Reeves Patrick Swayze action movie Point Break to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST! You thought they lost their minds on Episode 3: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) when they combed through every single detail of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Well, you thought wrong, because this episode is absolutely BADASS.

    Dan & Manny talk about their favorite one-liners, is it bro, brah, or braahh, and most importantly the romantic relationship between Johnny Utah (Keanu Reeves) and Bodi (Patrick Swayze). That's right people. Pay close attention because there's a lot going on.----more----

    79. 11. Wayne‘s World

    Dan & Manny's brains when they put 1992's Wayne's World to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST! They try really hard to figure out what this movie is, does it have a plot, and is Rob Lowe's character just Patrick Bateman from American Psycho? Really though, is Wayne's World just a blackout dream that Patrick Bateman is having? Oh, man. Also, Dan & Manny attempt to figure out how old Wayne and Garth are, where are their parents, and did Garth kill that guy in the club where Meatloaf is the bouncer? Seriously, people, there are a ton of questions for this iconic 90's film.----more----

    They also talk about: 

    • Maybe Rob Lowe's character is just Brian Flanagan from Cocktail. 
    • How far did that $5,000 go?
    • Every joke is in the first 15 minutes of the movie. 
    • Does Cassandra (Tia Carrere) live in a warehouse used for White Snake music videos? 
    • Shout out to Duck (Quack, quack).

    And so much more!

    80. 10. Bill & Ted‘s Excellent Adventure

    Dan & Manny made it to their 10th episode, and what better way to celebrate this milestone than by putting the 1989 box office hit Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST! With the recent release of the third installment of the franchise, Bill & Ted Face The Music on August 28th, this episode couldn't have come out at a more excellent time. As usual, Dan & Manny get into it in this episode. They try to figure out the complex multiverse/inception/sci-fi time-traveling going on in the film, Bill's crop top, the lack of help from Rufus (George Carlin), and they debate whether Bill is in love with his stepmother. ----more----

    They also talk about:

    • The Old West must stink. 
    • Which characters came first: Wayne's World or Bill & Ted. 
    • How many people can you fit into a time-traveling phone booth while spinning out of control in a wormhole?

    81. 9. ⚾The Sandlot

    Dan and Manny put 1993's The Sandlot to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST! This episode gets deep, gets silly, and gets serious. Dan & Manny try to figure out where their treehouse is built, if Smalls' stepfather Bill (Denis Leary) purposely hit him in the face with a curveball, and how many times was Benjamin Franklin Rodriguez said in full. Also, the 1992 movie Radio Flyer tries to derail the entire conversation. ----more----

    Other things we talk about: 

    • Why does anyone listen to Squints? 
    • Benny's endless pockets. 
    • Benny's endless supply of money. 
    • Memories of playing manhunt
    • Roller hockey. 

    Oh, and that sound you hear, that's Manny drinking water. It's cool.

    83. 7. The Fugees’ The Score

    Dan & Manny get serious about the multi-platinum 1996 Hip hop album The Score from The Fugees and put it to the ultimate test--THE NOSTALGIA TEST! They discuss how much they miss that "90's sound," what happened to all the Hip hop groups, and the lyrical/vocal power of Ms. Lauryn Hill. Also, Sister Act 2 might make an appearance. 

    ----more----

    Lastly, while we were naming amazing Hip hop groups we forgot to mention one of the most important groups of all time: the Wu-Tang Klan.

    89. 1. Cocktail (1988)

    Dan and Manny put Tom Cruise's 1988 romantic comedy Cocktail through the first Nostalgia Test.
