Movie Meltdown - Episode 282

More coverage from our own "Cryptid Carnival" including our interview with Ron Schildknecht, the director of "The Legend of the Pope Lick Monster". But before that, we let Sterling loose with a microphone to harass carnival patrons. Along the way he gets involved in some amazing conversations that involve weighty topics like religion, drugs, fairies, aliens, and of course Cryptozoology. Then he and Bryan sit down to get a caricature "action shot" of them podcasting. Plus we hang out with the usual Meltdown Gang as we enjoy some live music and discuss this week's movie "The Legend of the Pope Lick Monster" along with our usual craziness. 

And as we make plans to start The First Church of Moth Man, we also mention...  Soviets during the Cold War, the railroad's attorney, all original groovy tunes, missing lost wilderness, so God is a bigfoot on acid, every frame is money, so every frame is precious, cryptids are God, aliens in the fifties, an experiment gone wrong, podmooch, 16mm film, nipple monster, who doesn't imagine a day where they could just run down their hometown street... with a shovel in hand, and just beat the crap out of every face they run into, Richard Gere, religion is an addiction, what zombies represent in pop culture, three-cornered hats, yo mama sells popcorn on the street corner, I love a man in a frog mask, assumptions about the universe, individualism is a time bomb, when I was doing musicals in the Summer like all the cool kids, rear screen projection, the kitchen table, I've heard lots of stories of the sheepman over the years, darkness being spread by the Government and the media and major corporations, day for night cinematography, scrambling up dark hilltops and a really tall hairy guy to piggyback people. 

"...Cryptids are a problem?! Come on!! There you have it folks. America... uninterested, bored, and tragically uninformed."
