    Ep. 249 — Deadly Mile High Club

    My favorite moment in the movie of a character getting tragic news in the least empathetic way possible has got to be when the coroner segues from telling Pink Fedora that her mother just committed suicide to asking if she'll be swinging by to pick up her mother's car. I mean, yeah, you literally just told me that my mother hurled herself bodily from a building in downtown Los Angeles, but please, let me rush right on down there and pick up my mother's Chevy Suburban. I don't need time to process any of this information at all.

    After the model tells Pink Fedora (or Trilby) there weren't any camera crews on site for the shoot because it was being filmed from a plane, she goes on to explain that the audition for the gig was at a flight school so she just figured that it was being filmed as a promotional film. I am SUPER curious about what flight school she thinks would include aerial shots of people making out and being rubbed down with coconut oil as a part of their marketing materials.

    Musical Mondays Week 101 The Runaways

    So because I've been (kind of) watching that Runaways doc (really impressed "Cherry Bomb" was written as depicted in the film), I've been getting a bunch of Joan Jett recommendations from YouTube. I started watching her Rock and Roll HoF induction and Dave Grohl is called out to the stage to play "Cherry Bomb." I then saw the Rush induction was coming up next and they were playing with...Dave Grohl. Honestly, I think Dave Grohl may be the exact median of Rush and The Runaways. (I was also a little disappointed Rush beat Jett into the HoF by two years, but I guess they technically started a little bit earlier than she did as a solo artist.)

    You are correct. I just re-watched both scenes. She says she's going for her doctorate and that in order to "qualify for a dissertation" she needs to interview "more survivors." He then calls her a "writer" when she insults him in bed. If she's working on a dissertation, I definitely think she's going for a PhD rather than MD. Still, who is she interviewing? Maybe she's going for a degree in Journalism? It would explain her detective skills, having to do interviews, and being a writer who never ever misspeaks.

    Also, for the record, Pink Fedora was going to grad school for English Literature. When she's debasing Jake in bed for being stupid and unambitious, she tells him she "didn't mean to say that" and he retorts "You're studying English, you always know exactly what you're saying." Which is kind of crazy when you think about it. Jake tells her they can't afford to go on vacation because she decided to go to grad school, but speaking as a former English Major, I assure you, you can absolutely work a part time (or even a full time job!) while studying. Let me tell you, being a full time English Major would have been quite the luxury.

    Ep. 249 — Deadly Mile High Club

    What cracked me up the most about Margaret handing her daughter 2k in a filthy, crumpled wad, was when she whispered, "I know you need it." The only reason she would know that they need that money is because she pays Jake's salary! If she was truly concerned about her daughter's financial situation, she could always just pay Jake more. She has full control of her daughter's economic stability, and while I get she doesn't like Jake, paying him more would at least ensure her daughter's lasting comfort better than intermittent hand outs beneath the kitchen table. Hell, if Jake was making decent money, it might make him feel more ownership over his work , and inspire him to be a better employee overall.

    Ep. 249 — Deadly Mile High Club

    Fantastic episode! This movie is exactly what I needed Paul brought up how doing inventory seems like a pretty menial job for someone being groomed for taking over a multi-thousand dollar company, but what blew my mind was that he described himself as an Operations Manager, yet when confronted with why he ducked out of work early to take flying lessons, he told Margret that he had completed his work and would have just been "sitting around for the rest of his shift." I'm sorry, being a Operations Manager is a supervisory role and isn't a position with tangible objectives. You can't just say, "I've completed all the requisite supervising for today in a couple of hours." An Ops Manager would still have to be available to answer questions, make schedules, and handle any customer/supplier issues that might crop up. And even if no other issues did occur, a good manager wouldn't mind rolling up their sleeves and helping their employees complete their own job duties. I'm just saying, Jack was a trash employee. He would be a terrible boss. He doesn't deserve any kind of promotion and he should be thankful Margret put up with his sorry ass for as long as she did.

    3rd Annual(?) Howdies

    Paul mentioned this week that they’re prepping for another Howdies (yay!), and he wanted us to come up with some categories. As far as the forums are concerned, I thought I would start this thread to help facilitate this. So if you have any categories or bits you think should be highlighted by the gang, please post them here. I can’t wait to hear some of your ideas. The last Howdies were up to Episode 135–Solar Babies (wow!), so I guess anything from Episode 136–Hell Comes to Frogtown (double wow!) through Episode 235–The Great Wall is fair game. (Also, if @DanEngler or other mod could pin this thread, that would be fantastic ) Current Categories (we can add more): Best Recreation (When a Host/Guest acts out a scene) Best Metaphor (This Movie is Like...) Weirdest Thing Jason is Turned on By  Best Host Theory Best Celeb Impression by a Guest Grossest Sex Talk Best Tangent Best Guest Laugh Best Explanation Hope Best One Liners Best Moment of Realization (Think Rudy from Reindeer Games moment) Best New Word created on the Podcast Best Impression by a Host Best Audience Correction and Omission Best Mini Ep Correction & Omission Best Thing that June is truly Upset by Best New Movie Pitch based on a Movie that we watch (This Movie Should have been, a Sequel pitch or Alt movie) Best Guest One Liner Best Abuse of someone in the Crowd Best Second Opinion Best Second Opinion Theme Best Use of Google Best Jessica St Clair Moment Best “How Did We Get Scheer” (Tales from Paul’s Past) Best June Just Not Having It Best Made-up Hypothetical Spin-off (i.e. Chardonnay Talk, “Fry or Fuck,” the one about Jamie Gertz “Ladies of the Eighties” I think...) Best Paul Intro Line Best Fashion Talk Best Moments of Hosts Attacking a City and/or Country Best Moments of Paul Aggressively Mispronouncing Someone's Name

    Ep. 249 — Deadly Mile High Club

    This may be the best HDTGM movie ever.
  13. I think so. It was a lot of sexist garbage and nonsense. It was a real drag.
  14. When all the Blockbusters were closing and they were selling all their stock, I picked this up on Blu-Ray for, like, a dollar or something. We watched maybe 15 minutes (when he goes to college I want to say) when my wife popped it out of the player, snapped it in half, and threw it away -- lol. So, no, I don't think you need to watch it.
  15. I thought I would go ahead and create a thread for anyone interested. I haven't listened to the episode yet, but I made sure to get my donation in

    Musical Mondays Week 101 The Runaways

    Missed it by a day, but apparently yesterday was Joan Jett’s birthday. That’s some serendipity right there.

    Which is hilarious as John Lydon has always been upfront about it. It’s definitely a case of cognitive dissonance among their fans.

    Musical Mondays Week 101 The Runaways

    Honestly, most bands are manufactured to some degree or another. Even if not on a strictly corporate level, there is definitely some artifice going on. Even someone like Tom Morello said in his MasterClass that choosing your persona is just another aspect of Rock. I think I brought this up when we covered Head, but it's a big reason why I give The Monkees a pass as being a "manufactured" group. There's no real "right" way to start a band. Nor is there any "right" way to be a band. As cheesy as it sounds, all that really matters is whether the music is good or not. Everything else is just pointless gatekeeping.
  19. Talking B-Ball, addressing a controversy with the director of VelociPastor, and more on this week’s mini episode! Paul offers up advice on the Help Line, goes through Corrections and Omissions for The VelociPastor, and shares a deleted scene from the 2:22 episode. Plus, we announce our next movie!

    Ah! They were all Mercury Records! That makes a little more sense. Still, putting them together seems like a really bad idea.

    That’s amazing!

    According to Mikey Dolenz, the thought was they were all “showmen.” It didn’t go over well at all. It went right over The Monkees’ fans’ heads and Hendrix quit after only a few shows.

    Could be. I would kind of like to watch thins movie again with her commentary.

    Musical Mondays Week 101 The Runaways

    Well, they’re just such different bands. The Runaways are pretty raw and Rush is super polished — almost mathematically precise. It’s such a weird bill. It reminds me of Hendrix opening for the Monkees.
