I have been called out on occasion by my co-host Mal, for calling a movie a fun family film after describing some of the most depraved, gory, and borderline pornographic works ever committed to film. I also often refer to my peers as ‘kids’ despite many of them being adults every bit as responsible, and often more so than myself. The way my mind works, I prefer to think of my many friends and acquaintances as psychotically demented 5 year olds rather than slightly quirky adults. This has nothing to do with any actual affinity for children, but more to do with the way I’ve experienced life. I still view people all around me as adults, as though I never actually joined their ranks. I am 27 and work upwards of 50 hours a week, for God’s sake.
In the spirit of this outlook I tend to love movies that are beyond ridiculous. This fondness led to the conversation that spawned this podcast. Today I purchased 22 movies for the grand total $16. This hull includes such masterful titles as Hell in Frogtown, Attack of the Giant Leeches, and Bloody Pit of Horrors. In the coming weeks I will watch each of these films one at a time, quite possibly to my detriment. I will recommend or warn against them on the show as I see fit. I also recently purchased the trash film bible, “Cult Flicks and Trash Pics,” as a resource to seek out more cinematic gems for our show.
This is a labor of love. Our show will continue on because I love watching these movies and sharing the experience. To those that listen to our show, and are reading this right now, thank you. I love all you mentally deranged children. I hope you have enjoyed this little glimpse into my mind. We’ll keep watching the trash so you don’t have to, and I will talk to you all again on next week’s show!
