Hobo Radio 530 – Treehouse of Bore-or

Subscribe:

The Simpsons‘ annual “Treehouse of Horror” specials have become a celebrated tradition. For 29 years, the show has served up three Halloween-themed, non-canonical stories every October. However, in recent years, they haven’t been very good.

Still, Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle continue to watch these specials. This week, they try to figure out why. They share their thoughts on this year’s special and the later years of the show in general.

They also discuss the new Star Wars trailer (which Lars refuses to watch).

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Halloween (Remix)” by The Coffinshakers

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle look at Bret Stephens’ overreaction to being called a bed bug by Professor David Karpf, which leads to a discussion about the media in general and its ability to drum up controversy by amplifying the voices of an obnoxious minority.

They also discuss the trailer for the new Joker film, Rey’s new lightsaber in the Rise of Skywalker trailer and Joel shares his pitch for the third Deadpool film.

How does Rey’s lightsaber function? Have we seen Martha Wayne’s pearls hit the alley more times than we’ve seen Peter Parker get bit by a spider? Why is Lars so horny? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

Hobo Radio Interview – Dana James Jones, director of Star Wars: Revenge of the Incels

Subscribe:


Dana James Jones made his Brick/Star Wars parody mashup Revenge of the Incels with one viewer in mind – writer/director Rian Johnson. Thanks to social media, Johnson saw the video and loved it. And so did a lot of other people.

The film follows the plot of Johnson’s film noir Brick, but the protagonist in Revenge of the Incels is Johnson himself – and he’s trying to get to the bottom of who killed Kelly Marie Tran. This week, Joel Murphy has an in-depth chat with Jones about how the film was conceived, shot and released out into the world. They also talk about Jones’ run-in with Johnson’s predecessor J.J. Abrams, Jones’ first Star Wars fan film (which he shot at age 10) and their predictions for Episode IX.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Cantina Rag” by Jackson F. Smith
