Movie Meltdown - Episode 250
This episode rounds out our three-part series entitled: The Suncoast Project*. This latest session of Movie Fan Freakshow we revisit three of our favorite characters… Captain Obvious, Ivanhoe and for the ultimate finale we examine the amazing life of McDonald's Man. This individual was epic! (It even involves actual recordings of McDonald's Man himself from back in the day!) He was a crazy man wandering the mall… touching people’s lives. Or at least Patrick’s anyway. Story after story... we try to understand these strange creatures. Or just make fun of them. Whichever. (*Also listen to episodes 241 and 245 for the full Mall/freakshow experience.)
And as we protect ourselves from evil spirits using our magical mirror, we also mention… having a big sword, being a savant, a special way of picking words, this is the guy who thinks there is actually a stork, having a cape, Mummy Raider, then he started being a little strange, nuking Russia, magazine scams, PRP, It's a great undertaking to try to go through these characters, Scooby Doo and the Adventures with the Mummy, He had trinkets... he had toys, Miss Piggy, Dish Network, Ali, the monster RF cable, talking to your hand, Dragonball Z shirts, Playmate of the Apes, calling the President, plucked from his grip, Sbarro, you really sound like that, and what exactly is… bad business for whoretown.
"I often think of us... as if we were Darwin. You know, just at a different place, a different time. Exploring new species. And documenting the things that they did. The ways that they lived."
