For those who don’t know, Roderick “Roddy” George Toombs, better known by his professional name Rowdy Roddy Piper, passed away in his sleep yesterday in his Hollywood home. Although TFB has some knowledge of his wrestling career, we know him best for his ionic role as John Nada in the 1988 sci-fi classic, They Live. As such, we’re reposting one of many iconic scenes from that film, and in our opinion the greatest fight scene ever put to cinema:

Warning: Loud shouting, so turn down those speakers.
In this episode of MAN AT ARMS, they forge the Bride’s Hattori Hanzō Katana from Kill Bill. Impressively, they use largely traditional Japanese techniques to process the ore and forge the blade.
The real question is, can it handle the double diamond slope?
CarniK Con has posted a new video just yesterday, detailing a couple of weapons produced by the now-defunct Daewoo Group under Daewoo Precision Industries.
Polenar Tactical posted this video, parodying various popular firearms-focused YouTube channels. My favorite scene? This parody of RatedRR’s channel, with the following description of the AK-47.
Spartan117GW recently traveled to Scottsdale, Arizona to visit Haley Strategic. While there, Spartan spoke to the man himself, Travis Haley, to ask his opinion on the rift between Airsoft/MilSim and Real Steel. It’s definitely worth a watch, especially if you’re a fan of Airsoft, or you’re a firearms enthusiast.
Have you ever wondered how many men Sylvester Stallone has killed on-screen through the various roles he’s had over the years? Well, this video has you covered.
During prolonged use, cans get hot, really hot. Using that logic, Dustin Ellermann cooked bacon on a GEMTECH TREK 5.56mm suppressor, heated by firing around 90 rounds using a pre-ban M16 lower.
The classic satirical disaster comedy film ‘Airplane!’ turned 35 years old today. Abrahams and the Zucker Brothers sure knew how to write a winner.
Remember, letting your attackers make the first move is a rookie mistake.
I debated with myself on whether I should even share this. Ultimately, I determined it’s too damn funny not to share it.
It’s a reboot of a movie based on a video game series. About the only three things they seemed to have gotten right about Agent 47 are:
1) He is a genetically modified assassin
2) He shaves his head
3) He kills people
Anyway, looks silly and too much like a “generic” action flick. Might be home media worthy.
The upcoming January 31st episode of Mythbusters is going to be tackling some video gaming related myths. The one teased in the video is a bit interesting, if silly. They’ve “recreated” a level from DOOM and are attempting to see if it’s possible to realistically carry all the various pickups (weapons, health packs, etc.) that a player would encounter during the game. It’s kinda funny that they picked Adam to play the role of the highly trained space marine, but you gotta keep it in the show, I guess.
