Movie Meltdown - Episode 252
This week, we begin our Grind discussion on how technology affects fandom. An all-around conversation of how entertainment-based technology has continually changed in the last century. With each passing year we develop new technological additions that bring movies and entertainment to the viewers. So we look at how these things have changed… and do those changes affect the viewers themselves. Plus bonus discussions about Gravity, The Counselor and killing Uncle Owen and Aunt Beru.
And as we pin down just how Kinescope works, we also address… auxiliary Dave, how do you become a fan of something before there was a way to own it, Happy Days reruns, showing 16mm prints on television, The Marx Brothers, the thrill of the scavenger hunt, how piracy was born, it's inertia... it's inertia, the early days of Doctor Who, Destroy All Monsters for breakfast, President Taft, gross misinterpretation of fetish culture, missing something on TV, dressing like an astronaut, circulating the recordings, Scholastic book club storybooks, explosions with heart, critical mass of Daves, eating toothpaste for dinner, slutty bored housewife, recording on EP, mourning the old theaters, no one can hear you yawn, former British colonies, MST3K, Return of the Jedi, in a darken room with strangers, slutty daleks, television recording, Gone with the Wind, PBS, Han Solo is missing, slutty "on wei", Star Trek, getting rid of the flicker, The Wizard of Oz, This is the End, throwing Madonna out of the theater, astronomical fees, reel-to-reel recording, Monty Python, repetition, DVD extras, Pacific Rim, the alternate religion, the CBS Late Movie, The Matrix and a slutty bag of peanuts.
"Kids have got it damn easy... Crazy old man here!"
