Night Ripper Radio Shock Jock Raw Audio...
Here is my raw audio as shock jock Nathan Talbot for the upcoming video game from Pig Farmer (http://pigfarmergames.com/) Night Ripper. This is meant to be a 1989 late night New York City shock jock who is a provoker and evocateur. The call in show will play as background in the game so in the final game I wager most of this will not be heard. Also I want to note that I, Josh Hadley, do not share these feelings as expressed here... this is a CHARACTER I am playing. Thanks to Sara Hanley as well for being my back up here... although I have no idea WHY she chose a southern accent for her part.

You know, that guy, the one that was in that movie that was out last year...

Michael Ironside, John Saxon, Sid Haig, Dick Miller, Lance Henriksen, Michael Biehn... the list goes on and on. We are giving "that guy" his due.

Sinema Pilot
A few years ago I got together with frequent collaborator Mike White and KC Von B to put forth a radio program about adult films that was mature and introspective... the result was Sinema (KC Von B's title I remember correctly). In this pilot we examine the films Behind The Green Door and Cafe Flesh, films that have a relation you may not pick up on at first. We look at the stories, the histories and yes, the sex. Joining us for his thoughts is the one and only Bill Margold as well. This never made it past a pilot stage due to outside influences (lack of sponsors mostly). I would love to revive this series if a sponsor could be located who would benefit from our work. In the meantime, www.1201beyond.com/ is the place to go if you want more shows such as this or to help out the program.

Episode #219 - Cop/Vigilante Movies
Cop movies and vigilante movies are so common the themes in them are all but cliches at this point even when they should not be. Why is this? Why do we love to see the rogue cop take the law into his own hands to get the bad guy? Petar and Josh take a look at this while Cecil is off at PAX.
