Movie Meltdown - Episode 340

This week we welcome our special guest co-host Dan Cummins to discuss comedy, building a career in the entertainment industry and we cover one of Dan's favorite movies in this week's Sofa Theater feature - Tombstone.

And while we reminisce about descrambling the signal, we also mention... infotainment, being legends, push through the noise, chubby Billy Bob Thornton, a wraith that's come back from beyond the grave, Sharon Stone, I don't have a problem with nudity, my little town didn't have anything going on really, Porter Ridge, be a lawyer, all girl-focused, a lot of guns, Kurt Russell, a giant satellite dish, honing your writing muscles, alleviate the tension, death montages, Rambo, working in reality television, Idaho, that moment changed my whole life, Silicon Valley, American Wiseass!, school is a scam, Space Invaders AND Pac-Man, my view of my dad, I identify as comedian, Saturday Night Live, Cobra, you can punch them in the face, Demi Moore, Playboy vs. Redbook, I'm gonna work on my band, virtually lawless, Gillian Anderson, building chandeliers out of deer antlers, Bill Paxton, being a junkie, the wild West version of the grim reaper, pulling the strings, consulting producing, it is kind of impressive and shady at the same time, Tuberculosis aka Consumption, the tech start-up in Silicon Valley, writing, alternate casting and how can you NOT have Sam Elliott in your Western?

Spoiler Alert: Full spoilers for Tombstone... so watch the movie beforehand. You have been warned.

"To this day... my favorite thing... is just to lay on the coach with some popcorn and some drinks - and just watch a good movie."
