DEBATABLE 130 - Script Butcher, Jimmy George
JIMMY GEORGE joins me on the show to discuss his filmmaking career and a special new venture. To this point, George has been known for his partnership with Baltimore-native horror director, Chris LaMartina. As producer and co-writer, George has helped bring fan favorites to life, including the WNUF Halloween Special, Call Girl of Cthulhu, Witch’s Brew, President’s Day and the duo’s forthcoming What Happens Next Will Scare You. But he has an even scarier undertaking in his sights: running his own business. “Script Butcher,” a script doctor service, sees George bringing years of writing and producing experience to helping those trying to improve, polish and unlock the greatness of their own screenplays. He has poured his whole self into the job, providing guidance and feedback that is rabidly sought after, and for the fraction of the price of other services. I love seeing this kind of positive work supporting creative artists. Great talk! AUNDRIA also joins me in the intro to tease our upcoming coverage of Fantastic Fest 2017 for Action-A-Go-Go!

DEBATABLE 120 - The Man Behind The Man Behind the Poster with Erik Sharkey
ERIK SHARKEY joins me to talk about his career as a filmmaker. We touch on his origins, his feature debut "Sexina," Troma, his love of illustrators and his excellent doc on movie poster maestro, Drew Struzan, "Drew Struzan: The Man Behind the Poster." The doc pulled heavy talent like George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, and Frank Darabont, all coming to pay their respects to a man who revolutionized film marketing for kids of my generation. There's no one like Struzan, and Erik is as much a diehard fan of his as any of us. It's an enlightening conversation with a passionate filmmaker and I was so glad to have the chance to pick his brain. Enjoy! "Drew Struzan: The Man Behind the Poster" is available on DVD and Netflix, iTunes and other streaming/download locations. "Sexina" is available on DVD and Amazon Instant.

This idea has been gestating for awhile, but we finally got it laid down on digital wax. We talk about the movie's dubious reputation as one of the worst movies ever (it isn't), our guilty pleasures, likes and dislikes, and the history of its production, including its comic origins and role in the creation of Pixar. We also touch on Jeffrey Jones (not vice versa), Tim Robbins, Lea Thompson, the Thomas Dolby-produced music, and the rather excellent make-up and visual effects. Enjoy!As we usually do this time of year, THE DEBATABLE PODCAST is going on hiatus for the rest of the summer.

With the power to disassemble most everything around him, Carl was very good at taking things apart; less so at putting them back together. One divorce and an alienated daughter later, he realized the toll heroing had taken. In an attempt to move on and take charge of his life, Carl hung up the cape and opened Cook's Deli. But things are never that simple in the superhero capital of the world. Cook's Deli has a front-row seat to the city's superpowered exploits, from the exciting to the bizarre. A former sidekick discovers just how hard life is without a hero, a psychic rat goes on the warpath for another slice of rye, a D-list villain plots his revenge...these are just some of the adventures going on right in front of the deli counter. Carl may change the world, even more than he did in costume. Only now he does it one cold cut at a time. In THE DELI COUNTER OF JUSTICE, you'll explore the world in and around Cook's Deli with nine stories and poems written by Kitty Chandler,

Episode 82 - Breaking the Surface with Kenn Edwards
Podcaster, burgeoning stand-up, musician & music lover, KENN EDWARDS, joins me on the show to get down to the deep stuff. We address the love & hate relationship the film community has with filmmaker Kevin Smith and we discuss Kenn's admiration for his idols -- including Smith, "Weird" Al Yankovic and Chris Hardwick -- and the transparency they share with their fans. We touch on Kenn's own show and his recent interview with Yankovic, as well as what shapes people trying to do their own creative thing, and what sets Kenn apart from most: a positive, down-for-anything attitude. We finish up the episode with a lesson on concert-going etiquette, and Kenn and I play some well-established games.Kenn on twitterSo Let's Get to the Point podcast (and on iTunes)Smoke Gets In Your Ears podcastProject BatmanMusic on this podcast:Artist: Fritz Monath - Song: TogethernessArtist: Cibo Matto - Song: Sugar Water - Viva!

Good friends, ROB & LAURA THORP, join me to talk about marriage and children, and why those things don't work for everyone. Along the way, we explore how they are diverting society's expectations as a young married couple, how they define "family" in the face of tradition and religion, and why they don't necessarily see themselves having kids in the future...and how they're perfectly fine with that. We get deep and philosophical. This one is full of great advice for those feeling like there's too much pressure to fit in when it comes to adulthood. ONE OF MY FAVORITE SHOWS WE'VE DONE.

TJ Toohey joins me on this episode. He is a friend of mine from high school. We talk podcasting, criticize "The Dark Knight Rises," and talk about the summer of movies, including Joss Whedon's stellar year with "The Avengers" and "Cabin in the Woods," both favorites of mine for 2012. This leads us into a discussion on Whedon's "Buffy" and "Angel," and why we both missed the boat on them when they were airing. We also talk great TV on AMC and HBO.SPOILERS AHOY on the movies, so you've been warned.Music on this podcast brought to you by Music Alley: http://music.mevio.comArtist: The Hosts - Song: I Keep Fallin Down

Episode 6: "Straight Up Dom Cobbin' It" with Fernando Madrigal
On the sixth episode, Fernando and I talk sequels and, more specifically, sequels as a necessity for parodies/satires. We focus on the unique example of the Scream series, which functions as a parody itself as well as being parodied in the Scary Movie series. it's a twisting, turning discussion about postmodernism, meta commentary, and pop culture being "politics for the 21st century." Get ready to go down the rabbit hole with us. This has Inception levels to it.*And yes, we're aware of a little boo-boo in this episode. Fernando says Kevin Williamson is the film teacher in Scream 2. he was, in fact, played by Craig Shoemaker.*Fernando's podcast: http://ptlpod.tumblr.com/ Fernando on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arturomorla Music on this podcast brought to you by Vanish Records: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Vanish-Records/163242673788129 Artist: Warren Hixson - Song: Paint the Sink Look for Vanish Records' founder, Thomas Seim, on a future episode of The Debatable Podcast!

If you liked Tommy Wiseau's "The Room," this is something tailor-made for you. We talk about The Bowman Trilogy, a collection of shorts that typify Bowman's aesthetic, as incomprehensible and convoluted as it is. You're in for an education!Vince Bowman's Working Class Dog Productions: http://www.wcd-productions.com/ And the amazing blog: http://www.wcd-productions.com/untitled4.html The Bowman Trilogy & Urban Ninjas are available on Netflix.Music on this podcast brought to you by Music Alley: http://music.mevio.comArtist: Philip Peters - Song: Lightning's Second StrikeArtist: Blackhouse - Song: You Owe Me A Nightmare
