And much more!


  1. I had one of those knife holders and they are very nice, but we now use the powerful magnetic strips. 

    1. I’ve got one that we use still. No complaints. Works great with any knife with a normal tip (we have one that’s got a forked tip and it’s kind of tricky to get in there.) I just vacuumed ours the other day, since you can’t clean the pokey part with a dishrag like you could a normal wood one.

    2.  I love it when all the Amazon 1-star reviews point to the same design flaw.
      Why is this GWEEK’d?

      1. Hmmm  maybe it was asking too much for a product to stand being stabbed over and over with our razor sharp Japanese knives.

  2. I took one look at the Repo Man soundtrack tribute and ordered it immediately. I’d pay that much for the T-shirt with the glow-in-the-dark Malibu alone. Yayyyyyyyy!

  3. I haven’t listened to this Gweek episode yet.  But… is it too much to hope that the Zombies and Fanboys annihilate each other?

  4. I may be in the minority, but I would enjoy Gweek more if it stuck to a regular weekly release schedule.

    1. I have a hunch you are in the majority, but I would like to know why you think so.

      1. I have only so much time for podcasts each week, and Gweek is in my top three. Given its length, it usually takes a couple days to get through an episode. So, I can manage an episode about once per week. When they come out more often, they pile up on me, and I end up skipping episodes, but then I feel like I’m missing out on the Gweeky goodness. I guess it’s all kind of silly on my part — definitely a “first world problem.” Thanks for caring!

        1. Thanks, Jimmy! I agree that once a week is plenty. Would it also help if it came out the same time and day each week (like, Monday at noon, or something like that?)
