“Boiler Room” Small Time Scorsese

boiler_room_wallpaperBoiler Room, the Vin Deisel/Ben Affleck sausage fest, is proudly resented by Shawn Marek (Sideshow Network hot shot). We talk about the movie, lots of nerd stuff, the best Batman show on TV and Shawn and I compare telemarketing stories.

I can’t remember the book where I read the interview with the director of this movie. I know I told you to come to the show notes for them. I ain’t got it. So sue me. (Please don’t, it will be a huge waste of both our times.) Read More

“Airport ’77” – A Bumpy Ride

“Airport ’77” (the year, not 77th sequel) is crashing into your ears! Big stars like Jack Lemmon, Jimmy Stewart, George Kennedy all sleep their way through this clunker. Christine Balckburn and Hannes Phinny from the podcast “Story Worthy” discuss this train wreck of an airplane crash To test the movie’s authenticity, we have a former steward…errr flight attendant. Sit back, relax and cash a large paycheck. Look out for a timely Brenda Vaccaro impression.

Three of the Week 11/7

Story Worthy is a great story telling show hosted by Christine Blackburn and Hannes Phinney. Each week they have a different guest and a different subjects. Stories about waiting tables, c*ck blocking, young love and barking dogs. first the hosts give their take on the subject. Then guest will do a story and then a quick interview. The shows are close to 40 minutes. They are a lot of fun. (Full disclosure, I was a guest. It was fun. They will be on “Proudly Resents”  soon.)

 

The Jerky Boys Show with Johnny Brennan. If we wait long enough everyone will have a podcast. Proof? JB of the Jerky Boys has a show that plays one bit and then he answers questions and gives background on some of the bits. I have a question, what happened to the other guy who was in the group? Why do you take all the credit? Also, as a fan of the Jerky Boys and a New York accent, how can I not listen every week?

 

Martini Shot– TV writer Rob Long does a weekly radio column on KCRW. He talks about Hollywood showbiz stuff and makes it universal. Interesting stuff. Each show is 4 minutes. You can listen to a munch of shows at one.
