Silver Linings Playback 27 – Money Plane

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

To start the month, they watch Money Plane, the 2020 Andrew Lawrence film where Darius “The Rumble” Grouch III (Kelsey Grammar) hires Jack Reese (Adam “Edge” Copeland) and his team to take down the “Money Plane,” a flying casino full of criminals who can bet on any illegal activity they want.

Theme Song: “Bankin’” by Bronson Scott

Hobo Radio Interview – Remembering James “Kamala” Harris

The wrestling world was saddened to learn of the passing of James “Kamala” Harris, a legendary 80s wrestler who was born in rural Mississippi. Harris worked as a sharecropper and truck driver before finding success in the ring.

In 2006, we talked to Harris about his career, including his matches with Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, and how he felt he never earned the main event money he deserved. The interview originally ran in print form on September 26, 2006. Today, in honor of his passing, we are sharing the audio from that interview for the first time.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • Interstitial – “Vishnu Meets Funk” and “Ancient Ritual” by Lucas Perný & Miloslav Kollar
  • End – “If I had a dollar” by James Harris

Hobo Radio 539 – A scholarly examination of Billy Gunn’s WWE theme song “Ass Man”

Subscribe:

Often the best segments on Hobo Radio are those unplanned moments when Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle stumble onto a bizarre, unexplored topic and dive headfirst into it. This week, that happens again when an anecdote by Lars sends them down a rabbit hole that leads to a lengthy examination of Billy Gunn’s early 2000s theme song “Ass Man.”

They also discuss the ridiculous notion that Birds of Prey is doomed to fail because, according to Internet trolls, the women in it don’t look hot.

This week’s music:

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Ass Man” by Jim Johnston

Hobo Radio 525 – The app has jumped the shark. Literally.

Subscribe:

Joel Murphy and Lars Periwinkle talk about Jeremy Renner’s app, which was meant to be a way for Renner fans to connect with the actor and each other, but was overrun by trolls and has now been shut down.

They also talk about recently-crowned AEW Champion Chris Jericho, who discovered his championship title belt had been stolen from his luggage while he was eating dinner at a Longhorn Steakhouse in Tallahassee, Florida.

Does Jeremy Renner hate porno? Was Jericho’s belt being stolen a work? Did Renner wish for his career on a monkey’s paw? The answers to these questions and more are on this week’s show.

  • Intro – “Giddy Up” by Tahuna Breaks
  • End – “Nomad” by Jeremy Renner
