Next Show Release: 1.12.16


Electric rental scooters may return to Dallas

Scooters may be back on the streets of Dallas soon.

But not everybody thinks they should return.

Dallas radio host, Michael Zavala, was injured in a scooter accident on Labor Day 2018. He gave his thoughts on the possible scooter return on his weekly show, MZNOW.

“Here’s my thing, I’m not pro scooter because of the accident. Who remembers being in Deep Ellum, when these scooters were riding around town? I know three people that were just coming out of like restaurants or bars or whatever, and were knocked over by people riding scooters on the sidewalk.

They weren’t supposed to do it, but they did it anyway.

Who remembers sitting in traffic and having a scooters zip by, almost hitting people on scooters?”

He went on to say that, “providing stupid people with tools to be stupid is a terrible idea. We’ve already tried it. Dallas is not a scooter city.”

Michael, who shattered his leg in more than 16 places, spoke about his accident on NBC in 2019.

He was also recently featured on Judge Steve Harvey for the same injuries.

In 2020, the city of Dallas ordered rental companies like Lyft and Bird to stop operations due to safety concerns and public complaints.

If the Dallas city council approves, the scooters could return by the fall.

How to Get That Elusive Playstation 5

The Playstation 5 is the Tickle Me Elmo of 2020. Everyone is trying to find Sony’s newest console. Most stores have only four or five in stock and they sell out as soon as they hit the shelves. Online is even worse. Bots snatch up new stock as soon as it goes live.

So how can you get one before Christmas?

Our very own, Michael Zavala tells you how he was able to purchase his Playstation 5 and how you can do it too!


Playstation 5

MZ’s Guide to Getting that PS5

  1. Follow @Wario64 on Twitter.
    “This guy is the greatest. He tweets the best deals on games and toys. I honestly don’t know if he ever sleeps. He tweets all hours of the day! Follow him and turn on your notifications. When a Playstation 5 goes live somewhere, he will let you know. It also won’t hurt to follow @GameStop either.”
  2. Stay away from brick and mortar
    “It’s not worth standing in line for hours only to find out their entire stock of two PS5 sold out three hours ago. Don’t waste your time driving from store to store. Online is where it’s at. You can find one while wearing your PJs.”

  3. Stay away from and
    “Again, not worth it. Their sites crashes the moment the stock goes live. You MIGHT get lucky, but you also MIGHT win the Mega Millions. Try if you must, but in my opinion, it’s a waste of time.”

  4. Shop at and
    “Best Buy doesn’t seem to crash when their stock goes live. But they do make you do this weird “second step” thing. It worked for me, but I can’t say they are the best. GameStop has been good to me. Usually, you will have to purchase a bundle, but I think it’s worth it. ”

  5. How to Prepare
    “Make sure you are logged in and your credit card and shipping information are on file. You will need to be as quick as possible! You’re trying to beat the bots, so don’t waste any unnecessary time. If you have more than one device, make sure you are logged in on those as well. If you can, make sure you are on the URL of the bundle you want to purchase on each device.”

  6. Patience and Perseverance
    “Now for the fun part. Beating the bots. Once the stock goes live, click ‘Add to Cart’ on every device you have it open on. 99% of the time, the ‘Add to Cart’ button will gray out and ask you to try again. Hit ‘Refresh’ right away on every device. Rinse and repeat.If you’re lucky, you’ll have it in your cart after a few dozen clicks. If you don’t, you might get the dreaded, OUT OF STOCK or UNAVAILABLE message. This is where most people give up. They think the stock is gone and they take the L and log off. But in my experience, it is nowhere near done! Keep hitting ‘Refresh.’

    A few minutes later, you’ll see that the stock is back! This can happen multiple times. But stick with it. It took me an hour before it finally hit my cart. That’s it! You win. You beat the bots. GameStop also ships quickly so you’ll be swinging around New York as Miles Morales in a few days!”

We hope these tips help you out and bring you some Holiday cheer! After what 2020 gave us, we all need a little pick-me-up.

5 Shows to Binge During Thanksgiving Weekend

So you’ve eaten your turkey (for the 4th time), you’ve taken your nap, now what? Instead of listening to your uncle explain how the election was stolen from Trump, how about binging a few shows? Now is a GREAT time to plug in some headphones and start catching up on some of Hollywoods’ recent bangers. What should you watch? Glad you asked. Here are 5 shows we recommend checking out over your long Thanksgiving weekend.

 The Boys – Amazon Prime


We talk about this show a lot and it’s because it’s THAT GOOD. So do yourself a favor and start watching the first two seasons.


The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Reunion – HBO Max


This is a MUST WATCH. If you are a fan of the Fresh Prince, you should have watched it as soon as it came out. SHAME ON YOU. But now is the time to watch it. Also, you might cry.


The Mandalorian – Disney+


If you’re looking for space westerns, this is your guy. It’s got everything. Lasers. Helmets. Frog people. Talking robots. What more could you want? Also, you can finally find out what all the ‘Baby Yoda’ fuss is about.


Star Trek: Discovery – CBS All Access


This show is NOT a space western. But if you’re into time travel, spores, Doug Jones, and a lead character who cries every 40 seconds, this is the show for you. It is currently on its third season, so you have plenty of episodes to occupy your time.


Animaniacs – Hulu


Last but certainly not LEAST, it’s Animaniacs. This reboot is just perfect. It could not be any better. Plus, you get a TON of Pinky and the Brain. While you’re at it, binge the entire 90’s series. It’s on Hulu as well.


Will There Be A Tremors 8?

If you haven’t seen Tremors: Shrieker Island (the 7th and latest movie in the franchise), watch it on Netflix and then come back to this article. If you don’t care about spoilers – then continue reading.

From Borg to xB: Jonathan Del Arco Discusses Hugh

He first appeared in Star Trek: The Next Generation. Fan said goodbye to him in Star Trek: Picard.

But is it really over?

Jonathan Del Arco addresses what it is like being a part of the Star Trek universe and if we’ve really seen the last of Hugh.

Jonathan Del Arco

Michael: If I was the writer on there [Picard], I would have let you live. Just so you know.

I appreciate that.

But you know, it is Star Trek. No one ever really dies.

Michael: That’s what I was getting at. Thanos snapped half the world away, and in the next movie, everyone’s back and they beat him up.


Michael: So, do you think Hugh can come back at some point? Do you have hope that Hugh might come back at a later date?

I mean, you should never give up hope. I don’t see it in the cards. I’ve not been talked to about it. I don’t think the writers, that’s where they’re at right now. But you never know down the line. There’s so many incarnations of Star Trek, so many different kinds of shows that happen. You never know. I didn’t think I’d come back now and here I am.

Michael: It’s sad that your character died before reuniting with Geordi. Were you a little disappointed?

Very disappointed.

I was surprised and I had asked them, “why don’t I ask about Geordi?” I don’t understand why Geordi is not being addressed in any way. Maybe they had plans for using him later on and they didn’t want to muddy up the storytelling. I have no idea. But yeah, I was definitely bummed.

I was bummed I didn’t have a scene with Jeri [Ryan]. I was bummed I didn’t have a scene with Whoopi [Goldberg] or with literally any of the characters that the character initially knew well. I was super bummed that we never got to that.

Eric: With you playing the Hugh character, there’s not a drop of gayness. There is one scene between you and Elnor, they’re kind of hinting towards something, but I know there’s nothing for sure… 

Well, I made a choice to love him. My choice. It wasn’t in the script.

You caught it.

It’s tricky because we didn’t have many scenes together and we had to get to a very emotional moment, very quickly. I had to die, basically, in his arms. I wanted something more powerful than just like, “hey, there’s a guy that’s been hanging out, that’s cute, for a few days.” and then die in his arms.

I wanted some investment for myself. The idea that they were seeing–like maybe you never saw what happened between the two of them? I definitely wanted to, kind of, float that out there. So I just used myself, you know? How I would respond to someone like that and the idea of being a droid your whole life and never loving someone.

And then maybe, right before you die, you do.

It’s kind of a moving thing, you know?
