Dave Holmes & Sharon Hhttp://proudlyresents.com/daveholmes/ouston: “Ben & Arthur”

Dave Holmes & Sharon Houston proudly resent “Ben & Arthur.”  Dave Holmes found this terribly made movie that could have set the gay marriage back 50 years.   It’s a pro-gay marriage movie that will make you anti-movie. I believe if the supreme court justices recognized gay rights just so they never had to watch “Ben & Arthur” again.

Pro Gay Marriage, Anti Being a Good Movie.

Dave, Sharon and I talk about bad writing, a fake church set, a TOGO’s that won’t go.  Ben and/or Arthur is dating Ben and/or Arthur. Gay marriage is legal for a minute and in that time they have set up a trip to Hawaii for their gay marriage, reunited with a homophobic brother, fought with a wife with terrible  gaydar and Mildred.

Watch the movie that almost brought down gay marriage below.

Dave Holmes has a new memoir out called “Party of 1.” Here’s what EW said about it…

Dave Holmes might be a familiar face if you were an MTV junkie, or if you follow his writing and TV hosting gigs across the pop culture landscape. If not, consider this your introduction: Dave Holmes will publish his memoir, Party of One: A Memoir in 21 Songs, on June 28, 2016, in which he charts his own coming-of-age through the songs he’s listened to along the way.

“A Bucket of Blood” A Corman Classic

Don’t worry, there’s very little blood and no bucket, just a very funny movie that made fun of the Beatnik movement that was happening at the time.  Watch A Bucket of Blood –  HERE.

  • Film critics Wade Major and Mark Keizer talk about the 1969 Roger Corman classic, A Bucket of Blood
  • Hear the prank Mark and Wade tried to pull on the LA Critics Association.
  • Listen to Wade and Mark on the great movie podcast IGN Digigods.

A frustrated and talentless artist (Dick Miller) finds acclaim for a plaster covered dead cat that is mistaken as a skillful statuette. Soon the desire for more praise leads to an increasingly deadly series of works.

1978 TV execs. wanted to get that allusive Kiss Army audience. What do they want? The band Kiss, music, magic spells and roller coasters in the background. It’s more “Scooby Do” than “Hard Day’s Night. ” Can’t fail!

We also talk about Jimmy’s popular podcast “Never Not Funny,”   his love for Liza and we blow the lid off of Adam Spiegelman’s (Host “Proudly Resents”) great cleaning lady scandal.

Dane Cook’s “Good Luck Chuck” With @AdamFelber

Take the #1 comedian, a super hot actress, every movie cliche, fat jokes, ball biting penguins and then over-cooked (no pun intended).  Adam Felber (NPR) and actress Judith Benezra  join host Adam Spiegelman finding the unintentional funniest scenes.

This film is about sex, so there’s frank talk about sex. Basically, if you are a teenager, hide this from your parents. If you are a parent and you are driving with the kids in the car with this on, turn it off. It’s about to get real awkward, real quick.
