Movie Meltdown - Episode 154
We are back, and the holiday party continues, as we cover a few geek activities, and “very special“ installment of the ever popular Marlena Moment. Then we watch the beloved holiday classic that is “Black Christmas“. As the Sofa Theater discussion kicks in we discuss, ‘The Bob Clark Thing’ - about a massively influential director that left his mark on cinema history. As well as Olivia Hussy, Margot Kidder, a creepy-looking Christmas tree, a fabulous fur coat and an awesome One From The Vaults memory from the movie’s star John Saxon!
All that plus the festive holiday fun that is… soulless, dead-eyed, robot carolers, It’s a Bodies Alive Christmas!, Firefly, The Muppets, I want punishment, party line, Bradley Cooper, Amy Adams, Insidious, it looked like Cher and Mickey Avalon had a baby, goldfish swimming in your hot chocolate, super slo-mo camera, How I Met Barney, yellow bastard in the attic, Battlestar Galactica, Lizzy Caplan, Psycho-influences, I’ve gotta go take a shower… everyone’s dead, American Horror Story, my teeth feel like sandpaper, calling back in time, a real world scene from a John Waters movies, it wasn’t that piano’s fault he sucked, Limitless, a Veronica Mars reunion, Gilda Radner, that is back when toys shot rockets, you drink too many damned sofa drinks, The Hot Damn Hobo, Jason Segel, Brian Posehn, which cocaine Abe?, being sober makes you afraid of pain, it’s weird how many gay guys I’ve loved in my day, a pig with no back legs, choking on Aphrodite A’s missiles, hot damn hobo ghost, Jackass 3, Party Down, is Margo Kidder living in my alley? - and our own special take on Scott Weiland's new Christmas album!

“He’s just got that creepy, not human…but sort of used to be human look to it…it’s pain, but it’s also like - I’m already dead. I’m already dead! And I’m just doing this because they reanimated my body just enough to sing and dance!”
