Shaitani Dracula!

Matt, Robert Hafferman, and Jason Farrell discuss this half-speed Benny Hill Halloween episode from 2006(?!?). We didn't hablo the Hindi, so we were forced to watch closely as the Prince of Darkness' styrofoam-winged minions swooped in on unsuspecting campers from atop off-screen rolling chairs and sporting plastic fangs. This one was...difficult.

Matt is joined by Alan White (The Power Principle) and Andrew Shaw (Cul-de-sac) to discuss the new film by Joe Badon: THE GOD INSIDE MY EAR, a film that defies easy categorization, but is part horror, absurd comedy, paranoid conspiracy, and psychedelic trip. Look for it at a festival near you!

Our namesake song

Our show is named after The Kingsmen's cover of "That's Cool, That's Trash." It's a fun little slab of sloppy '60s rock that's fits us to a T. Something that bugs the hell out of me is that no one on the wide, wide web has the lyrics right. This aggression will not stand, man...

Here's what Charlie Google will tell us the first verse is:

There's gonna be a big party at my house
(La-la la-la-la-la la-la, that's cool)
I'm chargin' two bucks to get into my house
(La-la la-la-la-la la-la, that's trash)
You know the food and the drinks are all for free
If you want to pay the cook you gotta find-a me

The premise of the song is established in the first couplet: this guy's having a bash at his place (cool!), but he's charging to get in (lame!). No one seems to have the second part of the verse right and with context clues, it's pretty obvious what it is. Here's the wrong way:
You know the food and the drinks are all for free
If you want to pay the cook you gotta find-a me

That second line blows it and makes it sound like Mario is throwing the party. First of all, it doesn't even have internal consistency: everything's free, so if you want some, you have to find me and pay me? WTH? The real lyrics continue the comical good news/bad news scenario established at the outset. Here's what they actually are:
You know the food and the drinks are all for free
But if you want a plate or cup you've got to buy it from me

Okay, I've put it out there. Now someone go fix it on the Internet for me. Thanks!

GETEVEN (a/k/a Road to Revenge, a/k/a Champagne & Bullets)

A classic lineup of Matt, Kyle, and Joe watched the 1993 action-romance-kung fu-revenge movie GETEVEN, written by, directed by, produced by, starring, songs by, and starring John de Hart. This movie didn't get wide release until some re-shoots were done in 2007 and, man, oh, man, was it worth the wait. You've got Satanic drug dealing judges, leather pants, gratuitous sex scenes, and some bananas original songs. We couldn't shut up about this one. Get it on iTunes or HERE.
