Movie Meltdown - Episode 242
Coming to you "live" from Movie Meltdown's presentation of "The Movie Geek Art Show!", we bring you snippets of opening night action as well as a full group discussion of not only this week's Sofa Theater feature "Beautiful Losers", but also conversations about drawing, painting, filmmaking and art in general. Plus we crossover into the musical arts as we sit down with members of the band "The Moonlight Peddlers" who are entertaining the crowd at the art show.
And as we travel sideways in time, we also mention... Hilltop Tavern, Henry Darger, James Gunn, Exit Through the Gift Shop, Andrei Rublev, Mark Anthony Mulligan, Powder, watercolor dickgirls, hopes were dashed, missing Yak, perverting the task that you are given, painting horses, raising the dead, hanging around the Yeti camp, Grandmother taste, back-up beard, inventing a new genre of short film, the best selling book in Great Britian, Awww, it's a cute kitty... and it's horribly burned, John Cale, Harmony Korine, working for a major corporation, Camille Claudel, my mother was so rad... she would save every drawing I did, blood-splattered kitties, Rembrandt, Lanford Wilson, how much of it is just a process?, a red hair-ing, the repainted fresco, buying oriental rugs, If artists were a Mafia... that's what we'd be doing, Who's gonna take a Yak?, PG Porn, selling out, Stephen King... drugs... and the Bible, filmmaking post digital age, taking a baby's face, Shakespeare's first folio, Cinema Paradiso and Gremlins 2: The New Batch, encouraging art for adults, if I stay awake during a movie... it's a good movie, ernest Yeti stories, heir to a condiment fortune and an kitten named Basil going to a cathouse.
"The way movies represent artists... is that they're all just geniuses - and stuff just comes pouring out of them."
