Cult Movie Review: They Live! (1988)

Recorded: 6/16/2018

Favorite quote: "Screw all you and your yuppie crap." (Sooper)

This week we're all outta bubble gum, so we have to kick ass. Join us in a discussion of John Carpenter's They Live, which rips apart rampant consumerism and the heartless conservatism of the 1980s. Put on your retro shades and have a listen.

EQ.006 Cult Movie Review: The Peanut Butter Solution

EQ (episode 6) Cult Movie Review: The Peanut Butter Solution

Recorded: 6/9/2018

Favorite quote: "The answer lies in scolding your crotch." (Sooper) 

This week we watched a Canadian film from 1985 called The Peanut Butter Solution. We asked ourselves does this movie have a message? Should it be retitled? Some suggestions include "The Secret Origin of Thomas Kinkade," "Stockholm Syndrome: The Movie" and "OK--but why?" We also lament the decline of the family-horror-fantasy film genre. 

If you want to watch this odd gem yourself, here's a link. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t86ZzqR7M6A&index=11&t=10s&list=WL

Favorite quote: "Don't put his glasses in your mouth, gross!" (Sooper)

This episode is our first so-called cult movie review. We will try to divide our shows between new releases and great, older films. With the summer blockbusters coming out, we will probably do more new releases than old, but this fall we plan on doing a lot more older films, so it will all come out in the wash.  We really went accidentally nautical in this episode. Woot!

Favorite quote: "...balls aren't hands!" (Roxy) 

Episode 2 reveals that you can know too much about an author and that Sooper is an amateur Lincoln scholar. This was our first episode recorded with a mixer and actual microphones. Sound quality should be improved over episode 1.

Favorite quote: "I mean...if I can't say fuck, I'm not podcasting." (Roxy)

Tune in for our very first episode in which we discuss the recently released Avengers: Infinity War movie (SPOILER ALERT!) and coincidentally the capture of the Golden State Killer, so-called by Michelle McNamara and her book I'll Be Gone in the Dark

*Note this was recorded on Sooper's phone in interview mode. The audio quality will improve with episode 2 and likely as we get more familiar with the equipment.*

Welcome to Exhibit Q!

This podcast began with a pair of nerds growing up together, mostly in the 90's, talking about everything from Star Wars to comics to The Waltons tv show. My cousin, Sooper, and I were friends from the beginning of my life, but we didn't live near each other until my latter elementary years. And we didn't start bonding over all things geek until my teens. But from that point on, we have always gotten along like a brother and sister. 

As young adults we encouraged each others' creativity -- writing, music, whatever struck our fancy at the time. We also played role playing games, particularly that beloved goth gateway drug, Vampire: The Masquerade, through which we both met our spouses. We decided to work on this project about a year ago and now you get to hear the results. Exhibit Q is a reference from the movie Pee Wee's Big Adventure when Pee Wee is introducing the evidence about his stolen bike and the camera cuts to him presenting "Exhibit Q!" ... Later I used that name for a fictional band in an angsty novella I wrote in my teens, which is also where the name Sooper came from. (Spoilers!) But anyway, Sooper started referring to our project as Exhibit Q, and the name stuck. 

We hope you enjoy our nerdy offerings and find them entertaining. If you do, or if you have comments, questions, or constructive criticism, email us at exhibitqpodcast (at) gmail.com.

Roxy, out!
