There’s something about autumn that makes us want to cozy up to a great radio program with a cup of tea and watch the leaves change. Thankfully, you can schedule and organize all of your favorites with Replay Radio. Here’s what we’ve been excited to get our ears on this month:
Serial: If you haven’t yet, do it. Released every Thursday, which you can schedule perfectly with Replay Radio , this weekly investigation into a old murder case is like watching a movie unfold, but for your ears. Perfectly tackled as a piece of detailed journalism, it makes Thursdays exciting.
StartUp: Another weekly podcast that revolves around the attempt of one journalist to bootstrap his podcast company. Yep, it’s meta and just the amount of nerdy that we love listening to. Everything from evaluations to billionaire meetings, it’s a great insight to the struggle of making it happen.
Car Talk: We were so sad to hear about the passing of Tom Magliozzi, the other side of Click & Clack. But thankfully you can relive the magic in the archives. Enjoy the laughter and learn something about automobiles, but mostly the laughter.
Doug Loves Movies: Funny-man Doug Benson hosts this gleeful gathering of celebrities and comedians to play the Leonard Maltin game: wherein a piece of Mr. Maltin’s movie review is given and guests must guess the film. Always turns into a hilarious (and fun) conversation.
Whatever you’re listening to this month, we’d love to know. Sound off in the comments below or over on Facebook about your favorite episodes and listens that are keeping you happy and warm this season!
We’re just getting over our sugar hangovers and have finally tossed out those moldy scary pumpkins (they looked so good though!). So in remembrance of one of our favorite holidays, here’s a hilarious prank video featuring one of the best pet costumes that should only be used to terrify pedestrians. Enjoy your distraction for the day and if you have any funny Halloween pet costumes, we’d love to see them! Post them up on our Facebook or Twitter.
Can’t decide what to watch and record? We’re here to the rescue! There’s no better time all year than the week of Halloween (yes, we consider it a week-long holiday) to watch horror films. On this edition of “Netflix Conflix” we’ve rounded up some of the scary picks that Netflix is currently offering through streaming that you should record with Replay Video Capture before they disappear online – plus, you can keep them in your arsenal for next Halloween! Need help recording from Netflix? Just watch this helpful tutorial:
Fright Night: Time has done this film well. This is the movie that re-imagined vampires for a whole generation, in fact, a generation that re-created the vampire into your worst Twilight-related nightmare. Regardless, Fright Night still provides something fun for everyone and we would also recommend the Colin Ferrel re-boot from 2011 that’s shockingly on-point with the classic.
Detention: This is a horror film with serious ADD. But its fast-paced wit makes it nervously enjoyable. Chalk-full of 90s / 00s pop culture references that keep it funny and on the comedy-side of things. No doubt, in a few years, this will be a cult hit. If you “get it” then you’ll enjoy the film — not a horror film for everyone and prepare yourself for a story that jumps all over the place.
The Stuff: If you want something straight-up funny, make sure you keep The Stuff around for genuine giggles. The special effects are campy as they try to make infesting goo seem scary. (Hint: it’s not) But the acting is surprisingly great and there’s enough 80s ridiculousness to have a delightful viewing — you just might want to choose something other than yogurt, ice cream, or whipped cream to eat while watching.
All The Boys Love Mandy Lane: This movie isn’t particularly scary. But it’s uniquely suspenseful. The characters are heightened stereotypes and Amber Heard is (as always) pretty darn good-looking, but there’s something that keeps it all entertaining. In typical slasher-flick style, this group of teenagers is sex-crazy and totally over-the-top. Expect gore and an interesting twist at the end.
Hellraiser: Since this was the first sighting of Pinhead, and created a franchise that lasts nine movies and almost three decades, it’s worth getting a look at just why this created such a stir. Sure, it’s got the effects of your typical 80s horror movie, but Hellraiser does an astonishing job with makeup tricks and in-camera effects that make it worth watching. Also, if you don’t think the zombie-corpse crawling across the floor isn’t freaky, then we don’t know what is.

This month, we wanted to feature the sites that tickle our funny bone, make us spit take, and get us smiling from ear to ear. Here are five fantastic sites that you are definitely going to want to download video from, and keep forever… because laughter is contagious and continual.
More centered on Internet memes and pop culture, Cracked offers some humorous takes on everything from Doctor Who to Kanye West. Also, check out the “Artist In Residency Program” where they feature a filmmaker hand-picked for your viewing pleasure.
The OG funny video site still has quite a bit of life – and not as many cat memes. With a new Video section in Beta, they are experimenting with a whole channel devoted to Cheez-approved YouTube content. Don’t worry; there are still cat videos.
This site is full of hilarious distractions. Everything from GIFs, to listicles, to random factoids, you can loose yourself for hours on The Chive. If you’re looking to capture some funny, watch and record their trending videos for a clue as to what will be popping up in your Facebook feed next.
Another classic funny video site, College Humor has been serving up the chuckles for 15 years, and boasts an impressive collection of original series and sketches. Our personal favorite is “Phantom of the Office” – we’d hire him just to keep us laughing.

Dr. Wilson back here. Well, I wasn’t actually gone. Deb REALLY wanted to do a post on balloons, so while I was out training, she snuck in that last entry. “Training?” you ask. Last Sunday I competed in my second 1/2 Ironman distance triathlon – Steelhead 70.3. Translated, I swam 1.2 miles in Lake Michigan, bicycled 56 miles, and then ran a half marathon (13.1 miles). If you think that is crazy, Shellie has done a few full Ironman races. I might be that crazy in 2015. Between work and family, we manage to squeeze in a lot of miles of training.
This week’s video is a bit of a classic, turning around the patterned: “Sh*t” + athletic activity + “say”.

Debbie here. Dr. Wilson is taking a little break from distractions this week. So, I’m happy to step in and post one of my favorite finds. As a hot air balloon owner, crew-chief and pilot-in-training, I watch a lot of ballooning related videos. But, I’ve never seen anything like this before. Riding IN a hot air balloon is an incredible experience. Now imagine riding ON TOP of a hot air balloon. Yes…you read that right. Check this out:
Well, here it is. The end. While the World Cup ended on Sunday, and Germany inevitably won the prestigious solid gold trophy, we posed our final question, and Peter put it succinctly in-line with his favorite team:
If you won the World Cup where would you put the trophy? “A Window in the Red Light District (I’m a fan of the Dutch).”
So congratulations to our final winner! We had so much fun reading your answers to these questions and happily giving away Replay Capture Suites and official FIFA jerseys. Don’t wait another four years, come back soon to read all of the fun news, informative tutorials, and other contests we have throughout the year.
