Movie Meltdown - Episode 125
Recorded live at the Beatersville Car and Bike Show…First off, Marlena has a monumental moment of self discovery. Well, sort of. Then we check in with Eddy from Th' Empires and hear his harrowing tales of the road. Knife-ings, rattlesnakes and hitchhiking ensues. Then our full group discussion of this week’s Sofa Theater feature…the Robert Mitchum moonshinin' classic - Thunder Road! All that - plus a sizable bonus track for those who like to rock!
And from the outskirts of the parking lot we discuss…The Descent 2, Eliza Doolittle, Chevy vs. Ford, the spirit lives on, Black Dynamite, tall crazy slut, Phil Alvin, rapey ex-Army guy, getting hopped up on Kerouac, an acid-version of Tokyo, J.D. Salinger, cassette singles, drugs and bugs, being encouraged to be an asshole, Pulling, do you think I’m sweater girl?, a lot of strippers a lot of colors, Slags, getting knifed in Memphis, a lot of oddly sexual insects, Big Trouble in Little China, Shitty Shitty Bang Bang, remember craft night?, The Blasters, Naked Lunch, the birth of Nascar, music on plastic dinner plates, Th’ Empires doing The Empires, hitchhiking from Bloomington to Dallas, culture vs. biscuit recipes, the extravagant life of a rock star, Enter the Void and having an oddly truncated name.
Spoiler Alert: Full spoiler talk for Thunder Road. So go watch it first, Hot Rod.
