Good afternoon all! I hope that you are all having a great start to the week. If you are getting back to work then take a few deep breaths and take care of yourself. If you are in retail then I salute you and you have my utmost respect. If you are in an office then I salute you and I want you to know that it is not your fault and your boss will always go easier on others than you. If you are not back at work or you don’t have work, no matter your situation, and you have a free half an hour you should check out my podcast!
I’ve been doing the podcast for about a month and a half now and I absolutely love recording my nonsensical thoughts. I review a different movie or t.v. show each week and once in a while I will do a half an hour of talkin shite! Please let me know what you think 😀
A few weeks ago I received a great recommendation from a friend of mine about a podcast series. I pitted sixteen fictional armies against each other:
- The Uruk-Hai (Lord of the Rings)
- Army of Mordor (Lord of the Rings)
- Deadmen of Dunharrow (Lord of the Rings)
- Dumbledore’s Army (Harry Potter)
- Death Eaters (Harry Potter)
- The Navi (Avatar)
- Daenerys Targaryen & the Unsullied/Dothraki (Game of Thrones)
- The Army of the Dead/White Walkers (Game of Thrones)
- The Empire (Star Wars)
- Jedi Army (Star Wars)
- Sith (Star Wars)
- Ithilien Rangers (Lord of the Rings)
- Power Rangers
- Spartans (300)
- Xerxe’s Army (300)
Not everyone is going to agree with this list. There could be a wider variety of armies from different worlds but these are the ones I chose. I might do a different one later on if this proves popular, but there were some close matchups! I threw the sixteen names into a random generator. Check out the first matchups below:
- Jedi Army vs. Dumbledore’s Army.
- Ithilien Rangers vs. The Navi.
- Power Rangers vs. Uruk Hai.
- Xerxe’s Army vs. Army of the Dead.
- Army of Mordor vs. The Sith.
- Pokémon vs. Spartans.
- Death Eaters vs. Deadmen of Dunharrow.
- Daenerys Targaryen vs. The Empire.
I put up some polls on my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook profiles and had people voting for the round of 16 and the quarter final. As I said, some results shocked me but I had so much fun doing it. Please check out the podcast below and please subscribe to the podcast! Thanks so much for all the likes, shares and listens so far. If anybody has any ideas they can comment under this post or message me directly.
