Attack of the Killer Soundtrack #11 - Attack of Ookla the Mok!
This week we are coming to you “live” from ConGlomeration, where we hang out with Rand and Adam, otherwise known as the band: Ookla the Mok! They are a musical duo with an interesting history in the business as well as mass amounts of geek knowledge that make them fit right in on our show. So we not only discuss pop culture references in music and movies, but along the way… we also build a terrific soundtrack.
And as we all attempt to keep from getting Garfunkel-ized, we also mention… Fillmore!, sci fi and comic book conventions, The Police, Gym Class Heroes, my father imposing his taste on us, Medieval Evil Knievel, James Gunn, Bite Me Fanboy, The Big Bang Theory, two frontmen, an action figure of the guys that wrote the theme song, The Toy Collector, finding your tribe, oh Sting where is thy death, working with Disney, when they cut the song... they cut the whole scene, pretentious progressive bands, Marillion, my fingers don't stretch wide enough to play the gap that he's doing, Captain America: Winter's Soldier, Barenaked Ladies, I definitely don't remember a time when I wasn't a nerd, playing the bar and club scene, The Who, music rights on DVD, WKRP in Cincinnati, ok... we'll hire someone to rip that off, pop music, double-length concept albums, the music is serious even if the concept is funny, the legally distinguishable version, Because You Demanded It!, Full Frontal Nerdity, he doesn’t make movies with villains, The Specials, They say you should write about what you know... and we were college students. What the hell did we know?, playing me Frank Zappa when I was 4 years old, They Might Be Giants, Daria, Scott M. Gimple, who's the next Martin Scorsese?, The Eels, Cupid's Chokehold, not allowed to listen to the radio, fighting over song writing credit, giving up your likeness rights, Lawrence Kasdan, Chinese food and live-action heroes, the filk community and keep your money... just let me punch you in the face every couple of weeks.
