PTA Meetings: Punch Drunk Love 2002
Back in the early 2000's, I'll admit it was odd seeing Adam Sandler in a dramatic like  role.  I mean this was the same guy who made a song about famous Jewish people, had to repeat elementary school, got into a fight with a game show host, and was even the son of Satan at one time too. So when Paul Thomas Anderson hired Adam Sandler as the lead for his new movie, a lot of people including myself was surprised to see what would happen with this collaboration.  Well I'm here to say that it was so joyous, a bit odd and dark at points but so very heart warming and endearing. I'm so happy to bring on two new guests to talk about Punch - Drunk Love with me. Ed from The Film Effect Podcast Ryan from Soundtrack Your Life

 This episode appeared previously on our Patreon page.  For fun, I decided to take my chance and read some erotic stories, with a humorous twist.  It was clearly inspired by good friend of the show Nikky from In Bed With Nikky and her award winning podcast.  She is the professional and I urge everyone to check out her show ASAP.  I found a site that features letters rejected by Penthouse as well as some odd personal ads and thought it would be a great laugh to read a few of them to you. The episode does feature explicit talk of sex and sexual activities so if that offends you.  Don't worry we have many other shows that will offend you even more,  I love you, enjoy.

Welcome to the show, my comrade and former podcast host before there was ever a freaking internet, Josh Puhl.  I hope to have him and his wife who is also one of my best friends on a future episode, but for now sit back and enjoy our episode that is more than meets the eye.  Because it's a podcast and podcasts uses your ears and not your eyes.  I mean you have to use you eyes to find this episode and hit play but its not all about your eyes.  It more of your ears.  You get what I'm saying , don't you.

It's October so that means it's a good time to look at some horror movies.  Now right away I can hear you screaming that this is a drama and in no way a horror flick.  I assure you it has all the tropes associated with the genre and belongs with all the classics.   Starring Natalie Portman as a ballerina who looses her mind in her obsession to be perfect.

13 Days of Halloween: The Laurie Strode Saga(Halloween, Halloween 2 and Halloween H20)
Before you watch a certain movie with the same title that wants you to ignore the other sequels.  The Vern gives you a nice retrospect on one of horror's great heroes, Laurie Strode played by Jamie Lee Curtis.  Listen in as he reviews and discusses Halloween, Halloween 2, and Halloween H20.  There are no other movies with this character except the new one that came out in 2018 but I do mention one other one that was a misstep in the franchise.
