I think the official line is he gets back when he gets back, and they'll try to fit him in here and there until that happens.

That's actually a remarkably interesting Wiki article. Kinda makes it seem like the Care Bears movie is partly responsible for reviving animated films after Disney hit its 70s/80s slump- not sure if that's true, I tend to hear Roger Rabbit credited more for that, but I can buy it.

That can't be as true as the Wikipedia writer implies, after all Care Bears was actually a Canadian movie.

Unfortunately I found this podcast in October, which means I didn't get to call in the most ridiculous movie of all time, 2003's Party Monster.


I was going to write a description of the movie, but then I found this picture of the dvd cover, which I think sums everything up pretty handily.

Have you seen the documentary it's based on (confusingly enough it has the same name)?

http://m.imdb.com/title/tt0141716/

The documentary is KUH-RAZY and so weird and fascinating. It's about the NY club kid scene in the late 80s and early 90s and how one of the key members murdered a guy in a drug fugue. The most mind bending part (which I THINK gets ignored in the Culkin/Green movie) is that after the murder Alig told anyone who would listen that he'd killed Angel Melendez and the cops didn't do poo poo until parts of Angel's body washed up on Staten Island several months later.

I'm wondering how the next listener request month will go; it's a draw, right? I have to choose between requesting the lovely pseudo Lifetime movie House of Cards (with Katleen Turner and Tommy Lee Jones), OR something fun and weird like Clifford (what is Martin Short in this movie?) or Carny. I legitimately love Carny but it stars Gary Busey and Jodie foster and I want to hear their impersonations collide.

Tom Scharpling has made me love Clifford over the years but yeah, I really want them to do an episode on it. That performance is a work of art though and Charles Grodin is the perfect choice for reacting to it.

I think these guys have trained me a little too well because I had a lot of the same thoughts as them while watching this:

- Why do these robots designed for one assassination mission get chubbies / have a sex drive?
- Where do the princesses live?
- None of the things Pam Grier says at the start make any sense ... oh it was Rufus in disguise, okay
- If there are aliens in Christian Heaven why don't we see more of them?
- Why does Death get 90% of the jokes in the second half?
- Who would cheer for lovely hair metal in 1991, Primus got robbed

and so on

Also the guy who played Death can't fake playing bass for poo poo.

Something that I thought of while watching the movie... Were they trying to make "STATION" the next "Cowabunga" catchphrase? Was it already a thing during that time?

Evil Mastermind
Apr 28, 2008



Oh, and there were actually two comics that took place in the Bill & Ted universe.

The original one came out in 91, was written and drawn by Evan Dorkin, and took place right after Bogus Journey. Basically Death, the Good Robot Bill & Ted, and the Stations move into Bill & Ted's house and have adventures. DeNomolos, the Evil Robot Bill & Ted, and the Royal Ugly Dudes all wind up in hell (for trying to kill Bill & Ted), and it keeps going from there.

The more recent comic was from this year, and also starts right after the Battle of the Bands. In this one, they try to stop DeNomolos from turning evil (he turned evil and tried to kill Bill & Ted in 1991 because while growing up in the future everyone hated him because they knew he was going to grow up, turn evil, and try to kill Bill & Ted in 1991) and wind up screwing up the future a couple of times.

I can tell you from experience that "STATION" was definitely a thing in the tiny child demo at the time. My friends and I watched this at a slumber party and cracked ourselves up with our super-cool in-joke for months afterwards.

The first one I listened to was Rocky IV, but I started listening roughly 1 year ago. I think in the past year I've listened to almost all episodes starting at 100. Maybe about half of the ones before 100.

I like that Death gets that characterization, actually. He's a character generally depicted as cold, alien, and distant. These two idiots make him blow that cover away to show he's a goofy, neurotic idiot himself.

I found WHM because of this thread, actually. My commute got longer and I just so happened to find this right as I needed a new podcast to fill the drive time. I believe I listened to Mortal Kombat and Ghostbusters 2 first. And MK is still my favorite, probably. But these guys "get" my sense of humor pretty well, so I love listening to them.

My friend told me to try it out, and I think I listened to either The Good Son or Cat People first.

I was confused for days after listening to Cat People because I had remembered watching a movie about sinister incestuous cat people but literally every other detail was different. Turns out I saw Sleepwalkers, which is otherwise a forgettable Stephen King romp.

I was working on a bad movie podcast for a while and one day googled "bad movie podcast" to see what movies were getting done by everyone so we could avoid them. Found WHM and a bunch of shittier ones. Haven't looked back. I think my first might have been The Raven?

Mine was the Foodfight episode, but not when it was new. I'd just watched the movie and searched Stitcher for podcasts talking about it, listened to the WHM on it, and was immediately in. I think the first episode I heard new, though, was SWAT.

I forgot which one was my first one, but I remember Mrs. Doubtfire being one of the first ones I listened to, and then Robin Williams passed away soon after.

Same thing happened with whatever Paul Walker movie they covered.
