Movie Meltdown - Episode 183

Recorded "live" at Fright Night Film Fest/Fandom Fest we hang out and talk with actor Vernon Wells! Star of The Road Warrior, Commando, Weird Science and many other films! Plus we celebrate the 166th anniversary of the birth of the blockbuster motion picture - which happened right in our backyard.  

And while categorizing and judging people, we also discuss... the biggest painting in the world, the Thomas Edison House, Facebook issues, wheat and chaff, John Banvard, listening to serials, America... where all those weird people live, see you over by the freezer section, cranking spools, the East bank, Muhammad Ali, Rose Tattoo, being punk’d, the beguiling Willem Dafoe, dead media, population: 12, It was just this big stone around my neck, June 29th 1846, the first millionaire artist, Joel Silver, starting a lot of trends, a moving panorama of the Mississippi River, people have way too much time on their hands and the legendary tale of the stoker’s vest.  

“... they decided that having their asses kicked by Wez wasn’t a real smart idea - so I got the movie.”
