Then I talked about Amy and I going watch comic Doug Benson record his podcast, Doug Loves Movies. The episode we attended can purchased on iTunes for $1.99, just look for the Doug Loves Movies from Minneapolis, 11-5-11. If you do buy it listen closely at the beginning, you just might hear Doug mention a Dr. Dim. Hmmm, who could that have been?
Doug mentioned me because he has his audience bring name tags so they might be picked to be played for by one of his guests in a movie trivia contest Doug calls the Leonard Maltin game. (Don’t ask. I won’t explain it here.) Amy brought a babydoll to be part of her name tag and after the show another audience member found Amy, because she to had used a babydoll for her name tag.
It’s Just A Flesh Wound
I then ventured into the realm of politics (sort of). A couple graphs caught my eye on the Facebook. Both were giving percentages based on how evil Republicans and Ronald Reagan in particular are. I talked about how the numbers were deceptive. I had written two blogs based on each graph, here and here.
Movie Recommendation: Winnnebago Man (2009) I dovetailed my political talk into this week’s movie recommendation. ‘Winnebago Man’ is a documentary about a cantankerous fellow who became famous for his profanity laden outtakes from an industry video presentation tape that he was working on during the 1980s. The outtakes went viral and he became something of a legend. The filmmaker decided to track the man down and ‘Winnebago Man’ is the result of that search.
Music heard on the show…
