Silver Linings Playback 74 – Vampires

Joel Murphy and Andy McIntyre watch maligned movies and find their silver linings. For the month of October, they are watching maligned horror films.

They start the month with John Carpenter’s 1998 film Vampires, which suffers from being released the same year as the far-superior Blade.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Hobo Radio 352 – Farts and boobs and stuff

This week, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk about, surprisingly, Broadway musicals. Joel’s recent trip to New York to see Book of Mormon sparks a conversation about musical soundtracks, Josh Gad’s “Josh Gad”-ness and the uncomfortable portrayal of Jewish people in Little Shop of Horrors.

They also talk about The Rock’s cinematic renaissance, the lack of insane 80’s-style weirdness in modern films and Sunday’s amazing episode of Game of Thrones.

Why does anyone go to Times Square? What’s on Lars’ iPod? Can Big Vinegar remember his own catch phrase? The answers to these questions and more are in this week’s podcast.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Bounce Dat” by Boom Boom & G.U.G.G.
