Best TV Shows Of 2014

Posted on December 31, 2014

It’s the end of 2014 and you know what that means.  It’s time for lists of things.  While we are quite certain that you could go back through the archives and hear all of the things we liked this year. I think our listeners are better served by seeing it in list form.  The list is the latest in understanding things technology and, next to the meme, it is our finest educational resource.  So please, kick back, relax and enjoy some lists from Street Fight.

 

Best Television of 2014

Cop Show– While the first season of Cop Show was busy showing the inner workings of the police station, season 2 was a refreshing burst of cop action.  The cops arrested so many criminals and all of the criminals were certifiably bad dudes.

Specialized Cop Show– Oh man, when the news came out that they would be spinning Cop Show off after its first season we here at Street Fight couldn’t wait for it.  Specialized Cop Show started off with a special case that only the specialized cops could solve and (Spoiler Alert) THEY SOLVED THE CASE AND PUT THE BAD GUYS IN JAIL!!!

Old Timey Cop Show– How did the cops put the certifiably bad dudes in jail before they had computers?  This is what Old Timey Cop Show is all about.  We thrilled in the scenes where the cops were “dusting for fingerprints” and looking through their magnifying glasses.  If you haven’t seen Old Timey Cop Show you should.

Dirty Cops– Are you looking to fill the dark hole in your viewing with a little bit of crime?  Look no further, Dirty Cops is about some real criminals…But the criminals are also cops!!! They don’t rob banks or steal but they commit crimes to catch the certifiably bad dudes and put them in jail. Dirty Cops will challenge your love of the constitution and force you to question your beliefs about what the cops should have to do to catch the baddest of the bad dudes.

Cop Comedy – Do you like to laugh? So do the boys in blue.  This lighthearted look at the antics of America’s favorite fun loving cops will have you in stitches.  If you like a bit of humor with your crime busting then Cop Comedy is a show that will make you laugh until you cry because you live in a militarized white supremacist police state.

Top Movies Of 2014

Top Movies of 2014

Sunset Mountain

I know, this is the obvious choice, but this Rilmp Farjing’s sprawling 4 hour look at the families of this fictional mountain town was not only beautiful, but daring.  Who can forget the one shot 2 hour scene of Petey and Louisa walking to their one room school house?  If Sunset Mountain doesn’t earn Farjing an Oscar for best director then I have no idea what he has to do

Hammer Bammer

It’s no secret that we here in the Street Fight offices love action movies and this was the best of the year.  Kirk Florence is a bona-fide action star and the mysterious Carrloz is a director for the short attention span of the audiences of 2014.  While most action movies try to coast on slick production and dazzling action sequences, Hammer Bammer was the first action movie where all of the violence was terse speeches about the evils of modern society.

Till Death Makes us Fart

Much like Borat and Old School, Brett and Bryan quote this raunchy comedy in all of their conversations.  Who could forget the scene where Rachel Morningboat says “Yes I’ll marry you” and Tom Ron lets that juicy fart go? What about the infamous fart in church?  Of course any discussion of TDMF wouldn’t be complete without talking about the turd cigar, I may never quit saying “toot toot, Is this a turd?”

The Food Diary

No list of top movies would be complete without a documentary about food.  Doctor Jerry Krango follows a piece of GMO popcorn through the digestive system of one of our nation’s innocent children.  What you see will shock you.

War and Cops

In this turbulent year it is important to remember what the boys in blue and the guys in green do for our great nation.  When director Thom Hunks cast up and coming pop star Blayine to be the lead soldier of a platoon of ex cops who kill ISIS and build 100 schools in Iran, many of us wondered if he could pull it off.  Not only did he pull it off but he is topping our list of likely Oscar winners for best actor this year!

This was an especially good year for movies and it was hard to narrow it down to only five but that is the challenge of making lists and making lists is the duty of all of us on the internet.

Top Music Of 2014

It’s the end of 2014 and you know what that means.  It’s time for lists of things.  While we are quite certain that you could go back through the archives and hear all of the things we liked this year I think our listeners are better served by seeing it in list form.  The list is the latest in understanding things technology and, next to the meme, it is our finest educational resource.  So please, kick back, relax and enjoy some lists from Street Fight.

Top Music of 2014

Franklin Beerts – Whiskey, E-Juice, and Summertime

This was a breakout year for country music, while most people are talking about Travis Jones and Randy Thornton we here at Street Fight were dancing to the upbeat tempos and nostalgic themes of Franklin Beerts.  The way he howls “I’m gonna make you my briiiiiide if you wanna take a dirtbike riiiiide” in ‘Hot Ladies and Dirtbikes’ will make you want to jump out of your seat and grab a Bud Light.  While the chorus of ‘Good Time Ham’ will take you back to those ham dinners you used to eat with your family on the front lawn.

Caleb Tornado – Electric God

Caleb Tornado had another great year, sure we expected there to be a sophomore slump after the stunning success of Excuse Me Sir, Could I have Some Bass but it looks like Tornado still has some tricks up his sleeve.  From the pounding beat of ‘Rave it Up, Buddies’ to the throbbing dance style of ‘Synth Penis” it looks like we fans of electronic music will be talking about Caleb Tornado for years to come.

Perry and The Boys – Alabama Hill Daddy

Perry Charleston and his neo-folk bluegrass band has been jangling through the Street Fight offices all year.  With Steve Hamilton on the jug, Randy Grimbley on the banjo and Storve Carndale on the washboard, Perry has put together a sort of Monsters of Bluegrass super-group and you can hear it on the standout tracks ‘Give me an Ira Glass of Whiskey’ and ‘Love me Like the Bible’.  Perry and The Boys will lift your spirits and make your trip to Whole Foods seem like a trip to the prairie.

The Porno Guys – (S/T)

What more can we say about the Porno Guys?  We have probably played every song off of their debut self-titled noise/punk/post-hardcore/post-industrial/pre-punk/garage/indie/post-sound major label debut during the breaks on the show.  Some stand out tracks are ‘Hard On Dad’ and ‘Toilet Song’ but really you could just listen to the whole 14 minute 16 song album.

Flazzy J – Brick Haus

Even though his debut album Heroin Dance did not do well on the billboard charts, Flazzy J’s mixtape Brick Haus had some of the hottest tracks of the year. If you aren’t dancing to ‘Horny Babes (The Ornery Remix)’ then I don’t know what rock you’ve been hiding under.

 

While there were so many great albums this year these were the five that really caught our ears.  If you haven’t had the chance to hear any of these (although I doubt that because they were the biggest hits of the year) then go out and get them.
