Bomb Diggity!!! THE HATEFUL EIGHT (Official Teaser Trailer)

Do we really need to say anything here?  Watch/Repeat/Kick Rocks Til Jan. In Select Theaters on Christmas Day & Everywhere On January 8th, 2016 Synopsis: In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice. Along the road, they encounter two strangers: Major Marquis Warren (Jackson), a black former union soldier turned infamous bounty hunter, and Chris Mannix (Goggins), a southern renegade who claims to be the town’s new Sheriff. Losing their lead on the blizzard, Ruth, Domergue, Warren and Mannix seek refuge at Minnie’s Haberdashery, a stagecoach stopover on a mountain pass. When they arrive at Minnie’s, they are greeted not by the proprietor but by four unfamiliar faces. Bob (Bichir), who’s taking care of Minnie’s while she’s visiting her mother, is holed up with Oswaldo Mobray (Roth), the hangman of Red Rock, cow-puncher Joe Gage (Madsen), and Confederate General Sanford Smithers (Dern). As the storm overtakes the mountainside stopover, our eight travelers come to learn they may not make it to Red Rock after all… OFFICIAL WEBSITE & SOCIAL CHANNELS: Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/thehatefuleig… Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/thehatefuleight Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/thehatefulei… Website:...

Top 10 of All Time, #1: “Review: Nixon Supertide Watch”

As much as the allure of a surfer’s lifestyle taunts me on a daily basis… my extracurricular activities are sadly limited, and tossing my worldly woes into that big, bad beautiful blue sea will be left to others.  But wait… just because I don’t surf doesn’t mean that many of our loyal readers don’t!  So, when the opportunity to review a potentially amazing piece of surf-tech came up, we had to answer… enter: the DonkeyFish.  A good friend to the WGUB, and a man devoted to all things surf.  Few know their way around a board n’ wave quite like DF.  So I gave him today’s sweet gear… and here are his thoughts… NIXON SUPERTIDE REVIEW: A watch that can tell the tide?  Who in the heck needs one of those?  Well, for your information, sailors, clam diggers and surfers, that’s who!  And while I can proudly brag I’ve done all three, surfing is the only activity I have done more than once.  In fact, my life revolves around surfing, so it makes perfect sense for me to package the time and tide together around my wrist. Over the years I have owned three different tide watches and have found problems with all three: Rip Curl’s Tidemaster was a pretty watch, but I couldn’t figure out what the moonphase and other dials did, and it always seemed to be off on the tide prediction. Shark’s Tide...

Top 10 of All Time, #2: “Review: JayBird BlueBuds X — How Rude?”

An Open Letter to JayBird Dear JayBird, Now you are just being rude!  With all the improvements you’ve made in the Blue Bud X, you are not leaving anything for the other little headphone companies.  Didn’t your mama teach you to share.  What are your little friends going to do if you grab up all the good ideas and horde them?  In elementary school, didn’t they teach you to take turns?  I think it’s about time you let another child have a turn on the swing.  Sure those other kids don’t have your 8 hour battery life or your X-Fit design.  Sure their audio quality is sub-standard and they definitely aren’t sweatproof.  I know they are on the chubby side and often fall out of the ear.  But don’t they deserve love, too? So, please JayBird have a heart.  Leave some innovations to the other little children so they can feel good about themselves. Sincerely, The WGUB —————– The  Real 411:  JayBird has really gotten a little ridiculous with their latest creation, the BlueBuds X ($169.00) — or more affectionately know as BBX.  On paper, these headphones are near perfect.  But after over a month of use, I love them…but they aren’t the end-all-be-all I was hoping for. Here’s the skinny: Wireless and SignalPlus: If you’ve read any of my previous posts, you know for working out I love...

Top 10 of All Time, #3: “PaysteeWhite’s Review: Limp Bizkit – Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water”

Top Worst Album Titles of All Time: #1 Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water. #2 nothing. Nothing at all compares to that lame piece of shit. Congrats Limp Bizkit. You even found a way to ruin this list. I could put a red backwards hat on a turd and it would remind me of...

Top 10 of All Time, #4: “Review: Bonobos Men’s Clothing (Fit Changes Everything)”

As much as I would like to claim that snazzy slogan (Fit Changes Everything) as my own… sadly I cannot.  It likely belongs to some smarty-pants marketing firm or design guy from camp Bonobos.  But, regardless of where it came from… in this instance… it fits!  (pun intended) To say that we (the guys of theWGUB) are die-hard fashionistas would be a bit of a stretch.  We know what looks great, we quietly sit in our offices idolizing high-society money spenders of the Hollywood elite and we’ve even picked up an item or two after getting high on elegance after a Thursday luncheon at the Ivy on N. Robertson Blvd… but never before have we felt like an actual part of the fashion world like we did when we adorned ourselves in our latest discovery.  Enter… Bonobos. When we decided that “Dammit… we’re sexy beasts with mad writing skills and we deserve to look the part too….” we did as any fashion conscious geek would do… we started Googling.  The Usual suspects hit our radar; Ralph Lauren, Nautica, True Religion, etc., then we saw it.  The word “Bonobos”.  Intriguing… interesting… absolutely worth further inspection.  So we dug deeper and saw something brilliant… something that sealed any doubt that we may have had about this interestingly named designer.  Their Mission Statement: We started Bonobos to solve a simple problem: men’s pants...
