Netflix recommendation- Strong (season 1)

Start to realise our natural greatness!

The power of Fomo! I was curious to learn what ‘Strong’ was as I’d seen it pop-up several times on my app, so I clicked on it and right at the top it stated that the title was going to be remove from Netflix on 30 September. Oh no! So although my initial interest in Strong was lukewarm to say the least, all of a sudden I was in a race against time to finish this series before it disappeared forever!

And wasn’t I glad to have this motivator? After episode one, we weren’t sold on Strong and my wife asked “Did we really have to watch this?” And my response was, “We have to, otherwise it’ll be gone after 30 Sept”… As don’t you just hate the knowledge of something not being there, even if you don’t really want it? So we persisted and this is what we thought.

For those who haven’t (and will never be able to watch it), Strong is an American competition reality TV show (10 episodes in length), brought to us by the same Producers of ‘The Biggest Loser’ and ‘American Ninja Warrior’. This makes so much sense now, in hindsight I can see the similarities- as it was like biggest loser meets Ninja warrior!

The 20 individuals who are brought into the competition are 10 Professional fitness trainers (all male), and 10 Trainees (all female). And the teams are made up of one Trainee and one Trainer, after the ladies hand pick a Trainer they would like to work with (after watching them prove themselves in the first physical challenge). After pairing off with their Trainers, spending most of the day, every day, working-out with the aim to become STRONG and to transform their lives. Dependent on what discipline the Trainer is from, they will use more of those techniques to provide their Trainees an all-round work-out.

Throughout each episode, the Teams would come back together to compete in various challenges. Either for immunity from weekly eviction, or to win a medallion which signified $25K in potential prize money, which they’d take home if they won the competition(there was up to $500K up for grabs).

The various challenges were either a team challenge, or only for the Trainee, or only for the Trainer- but all were gruelling which tested their strength, endurance, and competitive spirit.

And at the end of each episode, two teams are sent to the ‘Elimination Tower’, a circuit made up of 6 different physical challenges- testing teamwork, their experience, and of course their Strength! The two teams being the weakest team from that week, and a second team which was put in by the Strongest team from that week (usually for strategic purposes). And at the end of the Tower, the team which took the most time to complete the gruelling tower, were eliminated, stripped of their medallions….. Well, it was less heartless than that, as they were given the time and place to gift their medallions to the remaining teams which they thought were deserving. And before the credits roll, the Trainee who was just eliminated, has a short 30 second package, showing their before and after shots. The before images usually showed how ‘soft’ they were at the beginning, but the after images showed them as ‘model-like’, completely transformed. So everyone was a winner in the end, as the show continued to pay for the Trainee’s training even after they were evicted, until they realised who they wanted to be.

And why did we enjoy Strong?

Action & Drama- Well, it had a good mix of action and reality show catty-ness. In-between challenges, the contestants hang out, either recuperating or eating, and in these social settings there’s bound to be some friction. Either clashing personalities between the Trainers (too many alphas in one den), or a strategic choice to send a strong team to the Elimination Tower, had caused a rift between dudes. So the off-action drama added to the overall drama of the series.

Backstories & Transformations- We also liked it as the show invested time to develop each of the Trainee’s backstories. Each contestant had their personal reasons why they’d come onto the show, and for most their motivations were for noble reasons which you couldn’t help but get behind. And seeing the transformations at the end, and I’m not just talking about their physical transformations, but it was the new found confidence and joy that these ladies took away from the show which made it a ‘feel-good’ show for all!

Emotive & Motivational- And after watching Strong, who could possibly say that they weren’t motivated to get more physically active? I know that for me, there were several tip-bits which I was going to take away with me and add to my own workout regimes to maximise my strength!    

However the elements we thought could be improved upon were:

The team colours- My wife and I spent so much time discussing what other colours they could have used in replacement of a few that they used. There’s so many colours out there, surely there were others better than just white and olive!?

The prize money system- The medallions were kind of confusing? And the statement that they could win up to $500K was also deceptive. At first I thought that the teams could chill out over who were gifted medallions on the departure of a team. As I thought who ever won, would clean-up the entire $500K pot anyway. But no, that wasn’t the case, the winners only took home the amount of medallions they brought into the final eviction tower challenge. Therefore realistically, no team was ever going to win $500K as advertised, as it would require that the winning team either won every single Medallion challenge, or each time a team left, they had to gift their ‘tokens of no value’ to them- which was highly unlikely. And in addition, the runner up team needed to never win a medallion challenge, and be so detestable that no evicted team would want to leave them their hard earned money. So I think the competitors perhaps were lured into this game under false pretences, thinking that they were in for a larger pay-day, when the windfall was much less. And then their winnings had to be halved again between the Trainer and Trainee, so not a lot of coin considering the effort required to win it?

What the challenges tested for- And finally, although each of the physical challenges were different- but they always tested for the same thing- STRENGTH. Yes, yes, I know, the show is called Strong. However in physical fitness, it’s not just about strength- but what about agility, flexibility, aerobic fitness, and skill? I personally thought that too many of the challenges were just based on brute strength, and this was underlined by a certain challenge when a Trainer shouldered all of the weights for his team, because the Trainee was injured and she couldn’t bear any of her own weights. That scene was almost uncomfortable to watch, when this guy was complaining that his blood flow to his head was impeded due to the 170lbs he was carrying, while all the while the Trainee was screaming in his ear to hurry up???

But yeah, perhaps this post is more of a review than a recommendation, because by the time you read this post dear reader, Strong would have already been removed from the Netflix Australia library. Boo! But for the record, it was worth watching, a bit emotive to get off-your ass and start to realise your natural greatness! STRYNG!

Product recommendations- NFL on Radio

Pay or not to pay? That is the question……

So last year we didn’t have much of an option, for some odd reason TuneIn radio lost the rights to broadcast Live NFL games- thus leaving a void in the market for those who wanted a premium user experience. However, at the same time last year emerged ‘Free Sports Radio’, a web-site which gave its users free access to Live NFL radio broadcasts, but with a catch. So now that TuneIn has regained its rights to broadcast games, and both options are back on the table for the 2021 season, what do you do? Pay or not pay for your live NFL radio broadcasts?

First of all, I need to explain to you what the catch with ‘Free Sports Radio’ is. The catch is that, it’s not always available. For each match, Free Sports Radio (FSR) provides you with a list of radio stations who ought to be broadcasting the match- at least 3 radio stations per team, thus giving you at least 6 options to try. However, you’ll find that not all stations connect when you want it to (it’s either just dead air; it might return an error message; it might connect but the station itself is not broadcasting the game; or you get a message that due to copyright laws, the game cannot be broadcasted in your region). Therefore from the 3 options per team, you’re lucky to find even one station broadcasting the game. And in at least 40-50% of the time, all 3 options for a team don’t work.-  and they will never work i.e. if it doesn’t work this week, it will not work next week, or the week after. Therefore, if your favourite team’s channels don’t work, just hope that the opposition’s channels do. And if not…… Then you can’t listen to the live game at all. Simple as that. Well, that was the case in 2020, but in 2021 TuneIn radio is back!

If you pay $14.99 per month for TuneIn Premium, you obtain access to Live NFL games, every match, throughout the 2021 season. The reasons why you’d pay are:

Reliable- You can guarantee that you’ll be able to listen to the match you want, either listening to your preferred team’s broadcast, or the other team’s broadcast (perhaps they have better announcers or more interesting ads); you have the choice of Spanish language broadcasts; and when the match is a Nationally broadcasted game, then you can listen to the Nationally broadcasted feed- which is more neutral if you’re not a particular fan of either team.

User friendly interface- The TuneIn radio app is sleek and user friendly. From your home view, there is a listing of upcoming live sporting events, so on the day you can easily see the team match-ups, what time they’ll be playing, and once you’ve made up your mind in which game to listen to. You just have to tap on it, taking you to a new screen showing you the team radio stations and you make your selection and the audio starts playing in a matter of seconds. Gone is the trial and error of trying to locate a station that works for you, and gone is the nervous 5 second wait to hear if the station will play or not.

Other benefits of paid- And aside from the reliability and a more user friendly experience, TuneIn Premium also provides access to other live sporting matches e.g. NHL, MLB, NBA and college sports. And although you’ll still hear ads, but at least you’ll no longer hear the TuneIn ads which try to talk you into trying premium.

But on the flip-side, here are the reasons why you’d go Free Sports Radio!

It’s FREE- Put simply, it is free of charge! And no matter how cashed up you might be, no one turns down something that is absolutely free! And when it comes down to it, the product is the same and the sound quality is also the same. That is, once you’ve locked onto the broadcast, what you’re hearing on Free Sports Radio, is exactly the same feed which the paid people are listening on TuneIn Premium. Yeah, no joke, it’s absolutely the same!

You gain excitement from not knowing- Do you like the game of Russian roulette? Like do you get a thrill when clicking on something, and you don’t know if it’s going to work or not? And when it does…. You get super happy because it does? Well, if this is you? You’ll love Free Sports Radio! Because each time you click on a radio station, you just don’t know if it’s going to work. Sure, after a few weeks you know which station usually works, but sometimes they do stop working. For example a few stations which worked last year, do not work anymore. While I haven’t noticed any stations which didn’t work last year, but now started to work. So the list of teams you can listen to, is only getting smaller and smaller.

You managed last year- And the final reason why you’d go Free, is the fact that you did this last year and it worked out! For example last year we got through the games of importance i.e. the Divisional rounds, the Conference championship, and the Super Bowl! Each time we were fortunate enough to have team pairings where at least one team had a working radio broadcast! And sometimes not being able to listen to the match-up you want, forces you to listen to some lesser desirable games, and sometimes they can end up being alright! E.g. Houston V Jacksonville was surprisingly ok. But this only becomes a problem, if both teams in the Super Bowl do not have a working radio broadcast, or even if one of the Thursday night, Sunday night, or Monday night match-ups don’t have a working broadcast. In these cases……..

Click over to TuneIn, and with one touch you can start your 1 month free trial! But if you’ve previously used the free trial, then one touch and you’ll start payments again and you’ll be listening to the game faster than you can get your NFL team jersey on!

So the option is yours! Pay or not to pay, it’s up to you! But for me? I’m going to keep using Free Sports Radio, until there is a must listen to match-up which isn’t available free, and then hence forth I’ll be paying for TuneIn Premium- who knows, it might occur in Week 2 or Week 18, I guess we’ll see!

Netflix recommendations- BattleBots (2015

Gladiator! Are you ready!?

I promise, no robots were harmed in the filming of BattleBots……. Who am I kidding!? Of course there were robots harmed in the filming of BattleBots, as they’re literally smashed, sliced, torched, tossed around, and demolished for the purpose of our entertainment! Moohaha! And the funny thing is that, showing glee in their destruction is not in-humane of us. Why? Because they’re only robots!

For those who are unfamiliar with BattleBots, or the idea of robots doing battle on TV, here is a brief history lesson. In fact, the genre/concept of duelling robots is not a new thing but has been around for some time, since the mid-90s and was discontinued in the early 00s. However BattleBots was revived in 2015 on ABC (USA), and it is these 2015 – 2016 episodes which have been making their way onto Netflix. Essentially BattleBots is UFC for geeks! Rather than spending years in honing their bodies into chiselled weapons, the boys & girls in BattleBots have spent the past years in building and refining their fighting robots to do their dirty work on their behalf- creating desk sized robots (sometimes coffee table sized) with only two purposes: withstanding some serious pounding, and to give back that same love, in the form of a spinning blade, pincers, flamethrowers etc.

The battles are undertaken in a ‘BattleBox’, a large bulletproof transparent box, lined with obstacles to ensnare and further damage unsuspecting robots. The creators of these fighting bots control their contraptions from a very safe distance outside the box. And their bots do battle for 3 minutes, or until one bot is incapacitated and fails to come too before the end of a standing 10 count.

The show includes short packages featuring the Creators behind the bots, analysis on the effectiveness of each competitor, while most of the show is devoted to the battles. The battle/competition format is by knock-out, starting off with 24 robots, each loser of their bout is eliminated (except for 4 Wildcards),, progressing to the Round of 16, then to the Quarter finals, then to the Semi-finals, then eventually to the Championship round- where the top bot (and its Creator) is crowned and given a giant ‘Nut’ trophy (the nuts & bolts kind of nut, not a giant unshelled peanut).

The season which we watched was BattleBots 2015, hosted by Molly McGrath, Chris Rose and Kenny Florian who commentate on the action, and Alison Haislip is on hand as the sideline reporter to capture jubilant or devastated robot creators, depending if their bot was just smashed to pieces, or if they survived to fight another day.

What I enjoyed the most about the series, wasn’t the on-air action (although it was pretty cool to hear the coming together of two solid metal objects), but it was hearing how excited my wife got from watching gratuitous violence! While we were making our way through the BattleBots series, we were simultaneously watching a few other series on Netflix (a baking show and a sitcom). However when given the option, my wife always elected BattleBots over all other options. Why I found this to be amusing, was that my wife historically isn’t into these types of things i.e. she would never watch a boxing match or a round of UFC, nor was into video games. But now that they weren’t human beings beating each other senseless- it was alright to cheer for blood! Well, at least torn robotic limbs, fried circuit boards, and shredded wheels!

And what was also interesting to see, was to see STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) celebrated, and the boys and girls who possessed it to be assigned Legend status. It’s not often that you have a crowd cheering on an exhibition of ingenuity, smarts and strategy- but here it was!

So if you want to check out a modern day Gladiator battle to the death, check out BattleBots 2015 – 2016 HERE! All it needs is an Emperor figure seated in the crowd, to give the thumbs down, to signify ‘Finish him’ to complete this modern day gladiator scene.

Netflix recommendations- Car Masters Rust to Riches seasons 1 – 3

Reuse, refurbish, recycle!

Please forgive me for using the same tag-line in consecutive blogs, however the act to reuse, refurbish, recycle encapsulates perfectly in what ‘Car Masters Rust to Riches’ is all about! Although we’d might also need to include the terms of improve, beastify, and bling-out, to better describe what they actually do to these pieces of scrap metal.

For those who aren’t familiar with ‘Car Masters Rust to Riches’, it is a Reality TV show airing on Netflix, that showcases the work of Gotham Garage, a custom car shop in California owned by Mark Towle (movie-car builder).   But unlike other Reality TV shows involving custom car work (and there are a few), ‘Car Masters Rust to Riches’ include an element of gamification to their work i.e. they start off with a rust-bucket car, do it up and swap it for a better rust-bucket, and on and on until they can sell their final car for a big six figure pay-day! Thus the show ties in the very first build to the very last, making the show into a very binge worthy series- unlike all other custom car shows where they’re stand-alone episodes which you can watch and just as easily stop watching.

And where most other custom car reality shows are geared for a certain type of viewer (male, male, and male), I personally believe that Car Masters reaches a wider audience because their builds are more outrageous which captures the imagination of both child and adult alike; the vintage American cars tap into baby-boomers sense of nostalgia; and having an eclectic bunch of grease-monkeys (employees) hard at work at the shop helps to appeal to a wider audience. So if you’re not into cars to begin with, I think you’ll still enjoy ‘Car Masters Rust to Riches’, and you may just see four wheeled vehicles in a different light afterwards.

In Season 1, CMRtR stick more closely to the formula of starting out small and building up to the big pay-day. In season two CMRtR started to diverge away, just a little from their original game plan, due to an unforeseen incident and a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity which could not be passed on. While in season three there was a risk that CMRtR became just another ‘West Coast Customs’, where rich people bring their cars to be blinged out. But thanks to Alex, and his ever changing tastes…… He was handed back his car in pieces which allowed Mark and his team to continue on with their aims of creating custom cars to their own specifications with complete creative license. Moohaha!

Not to mention, from all the custom car shows out there- ‘Car Masters Rust to Riches’ was the only title which contains Audio Description for Vision impaired viewers! So for once, I was able to more accurately envision what these vehicular works of art looked like, rather than relying on my teenage memories of cars from 20 years back  to imagine what these completed cars might look like.

So if you’d like to check out ‘Car Masters Rust to Riches’, where they give tired cars a makeover!? Click HERE to start bingeing! They’re ‘bad-ass’! 

Product recommendation- A Treble bass guitar

Reuse, refurbish, recycle!

As I type this blog post, I’m channelling every force field and charm to protect my anonymity. If this was a spoken media, I’d be speaking through a pitch changer to disguise my voice/identity, as what I’m going to tell you now is blasphemous, shocking, and out-right shameful…….

Here goes, here is my big admission……. I’ve been playing a regular Electric guitar like a bass guitar!

I know! I’m so embarrassed to admit this fact. I truly think I need to join a police witness protection program, so they can protect me from vengeful Bass players out to get me, for defiling their art form.

But hear me out, please let me explain how all of this came about!

As I had mentioned in a previous ‘Product recommendation’ post, I’d been teaching myself how to play the Bass guitar, as it’s the easiest of all the stringed instruments to learn/master. And in a much older post, I’d disclosed the fact that I’m completely blind……. So let’s just say that the only guitar I’ve properly seen/touched in recent times, has been a Bass guitar. So you can say, all I’ve known has been Bass guitars.

Around 3 years ago, my wife brought home my sister’s old Electric guitar- my sister in her uni days was teaching herself to play and after she moved out of home, the Yamaha was left behind at my parent’s place gathering dust. As my wife is a hella good guitar player (acoustic), she intended to muck around on the electric for a bit of fun. However life got busy and without the luxury of free-time, the electric guitar didn’t get played much and ended up just gathering dust at our place out of sight out of mind.

Fast-forward to the present, I was reading up on Bass guitars, trying to learn if a brand made less heavy Bass guitars. As my biggest complaint to-date with the entire learning experience, has been the shear physical pain of it! It’s almost torturous! I was feeling it in my lower back, in the shoulder blades, in my temples, in my neck, in my finger pads and joints, and cramps in my right bicep (from making a super tight chicken-wing to pluck the strings, as sitting to play, the guitar’s body was just not aligning to my physical make-up). So in short, sitting or standing to play, I couldn’t endure it for long! *head in hands*.

So from my web-browsing I learnt of hollow body Bass guitars, and I also learnt of Short scale bass guitars (there were also Ukulele Bass guitars, but even I will not sink that low to play such an inferior sounding instrument!).

And after watching several Youtube clips where influencers were reviewing a Short scale bass guitar, I was 75% sold on the concept of a bass that sounded like a bass guitar, but was more the shape and size of a standard Electric guitar. But going short isn’t an easy decision to make, as they say ‘once you go short, you can’t go back’. So was I prepared to never be a ‘proper bass’ player because I don’t play the real thing?

So I thought to help me make this decision, I needed to get my hands on a regular Electric guitar, to get a better sense of how it might feel to play. So I pulled out my sister’s old Electric guitar from storage, and it blew my mind!

I just tried playing the songs that I’d learnt, and OMG! It was like discovering that there were automatic cars out there, after only ever driving manual cars. It was like hopping on a travellator for the first time at an airport, when you’re rushing to make a connection (why would you ever walk on non-moving ground ever again!). It was like the discovery of Function Lock on a laptop, so you no longer had to hold down multiple keys to hit Function keys when working in Excel. Suffice it to say, all of a sudden making music became so much easier, so I could focus on playing, instead of just feeling pain- as this was a recreation after all! 

Picking up an Electric guitar to play, it made me feel like I had the biggest strongest hands! Like the frets are actually there in finger’s reach! The strings are actually pliable, so I’m actually able to use other than my index and middle fingers to hold down strings. The weight, the weight! Now the guitar is virtually feather light (in comparison) so I can play standing and simply lose track of time! And the TONE! I’ve turned our amp up to max bass, max bass on the guitar itself, and selected the pickup for max bass. Although it doesn’t sound as deep and full as a Bass guitar’s sound, but it’s surprisingly bassy enough when notes fall on the E-string. And I actually prefer the bright crisper tone of our ‘Treble bass’! All it needs is a couple more strings lower than the E-string, and she’ll be right! Oh hey! I’ve just described the virtues of a Short scale bass. Der.

So yeah, I’m now 100% sold on the Short scale bass, if it’s 85% as easy to play as an Electric guitar! But my wife warns me that the Short scale’s strings will still be just as thick and unforgiving as a proper bass, so there will be a re-adaption period when the time comes. But for now, I’m loving my journey with learning a musical instrument.

Sure, I’m embarrassed to admit to anyone that I’m learning the bass on an Electric guitar. A work colleague told me that he wanted to hear me play, the next time we do a lunch-time catch-up over MS Teams. Now I’m thinking how can I weasel my way out of this one? As he doesn’t know that I’m playing bass on a Treble bass guitar! Oops! But from my perspective, if ‘cheating’ enables me to spend more time learning, practicing, improving, and increasing my love of playing? Is that so bad? Right?

And I hear you ask, ‘what is your end aim with all of this?’ As what is the use of a bass player, when outside of a band? Well, my end aim is to play in our church’s worship team! But before that’s going to happen, I definitely need to increase my competency in the modern-day 4 stringed lyre; get more hours of experience under my belt as you’ve heard of Malcolm Gladwell’s ‘10,000 hour rule’; and I need to pull the trigger on a Short scale bass before I can appear in public as a bass player. Oh yeah, not to mention I also need to gather up the nerves to audition, I heard that the audition criteria and the Worship leader are both hard to satisfy. So yeah…….

So I’d imagine this will go down in 2022, as I have this self-imposed resolution for the second half of 2021 which is to not to purchase another big ticket item until the New Year. As like many, I’m in the habit of immediate self-gratification of my on-line shopping needs. So a Short scale bass will be a 2022 purchase. So for now it’s all about reuse, refurbish, recycle!

You never know, perhaps this post might spark your own reuse, refurbish, recycle scenario? In this day of Covid lockdown and being confined indoors, what do you have lying around your home which you can reuse, refurbish, recycle! That may bring you hours and hours of enjoyment?

Product recommendation- SunPork Fresh Foods

Get some of Dan and Steph’s pork on your fork!

Talk about celebrity power! The only reason we tried SunPork Fresh Foods’ line of sausages, was due to the fact that Dan and Steph from ‘My Kitchen Rules’ were all over the packaging. And aren’t we glad that we did so, from the vast selection of sausages on sale at Coles.

Since trying Dan and Steph’s recipe, we haven’t gone back to any of the other sausage brands. What I like the most about SunPork’s sausages, is that the sausage casing that they use, is super thin and edible!

What I mean is this, for the past couple of years I’ve been using sausages in replacement of meatballs in our pasta dishes. Just because I enjoy the various flavours and the assortment of ingredients on offer in sausages, compared to plain old packaged meatballs.

So what I do, is I cut uncooked sausages into segments, re-shape them into balls and then pan fry them. But most times with other brands of sausages, after pan frying them, the sausage casing remains uncooked. And what happens is, when you’re eating dinner you end up with pieces of elastic inedible casing, which reminds me a bit too much of latex glove fingers, or something worse…….

However SunPork uses a thin sausage casing, and even if you can still identify it after cooking, it’s thin enough to consume. Almost melting in the mouth.

And this up-side is even before getting to the intense flavours of the actual sausages! With most brands, they sound much nicer than they actually are. As most times you can’t taste the ‘wine’, or whatever herb they claim is contain within. However for Dan and Steph’s sausages, you can actually taste the chilli in their Spicy Sicilian sausage, and you can actually taste the herbs in their Farmhouse style sausage. And aside from Dan and Steph’s 2 newer flavours, SunPork also produces the Louisiana style sausage, and a Cheesy BBQ sausage which has runny cheese veins within it! Yum!

We’ve tried them all now, and they’re all great! So if you’d like to get some of Dan and Steph’s pork on your fork, check them out at Coles! Or click HERE to familiarise yourself with what you’re looking out for!
