Kevin Avery (@KevinAvery) and Klee Wiggins (@kleethepimp) are standup comics and are real, dyed in the wool, Star Wars fans. Klee could probably act out the whole series. I need to have them back separately so that Klee and I allow Kevin to talk. This ep weeds off into TV, movies and actors. I get another recommendation of a movie I will never see on purpose. They both just did a short film, THUGS, THE MUSICAL. Look into it.

Tell me if the notes are showing up on your apps. There are apps by the way... heh. I'm told I have to type them into libsyn's word document.

    Not to be a nudge, but Harvey Dent was never a black guy in the comics.

    If Jackie ever had a middle-school style sleepover this episode is what I imagine it would sound like. She and her buds lying on their sleeping bags gossiping about racial stereotypes in Star Trek and Lord of the Rings, talking about what boys they like think about pop songs...

    Ha.

    Great EP! Kevin and KleeWiggins should come back.

    INDEPENDENCE DAY is only marginally better than BATTLEFIELD EARTH...albeit with red filter not quite as dominant in the filming as the blue filter in BE (and I have more pity for the supporting cast of BE...the ID4 cast seems like they're at least having fun with this atrocious, foolish thing). MARS ATTACKS!, as, in part, mockery of ID4, was more pleasant than either of these others to me...but perhaps I'd have a better attitude toward ID4 if I hadn't paid for tix. (I didn't contribute any money toward the party viewing of BE.)

    ---And here's Robert Bloch making his way back into comments...Ed Gein's crimes inspire Bloch to write PSYCHO, before the full details were released to the public (Bloch was slightly disturbed to have come closer to reality than he expected to with his suppositions)...Bloch, early in his writing career, also moonlighted in advertising, and with a partner he put together a campaign which succeeded in putting an empty-suit Republican candidate into Milwaukee City Hall, against the entrenched Socialist machine. Bloch wasn't thrilled about this, but they did their jobs, and the Socialists were being aggressively clueless...from WIKIPEDIA:

    ---In 1939, Bloch was contacted by James Doolittle, who was managing the campaign for a little-known assistant attorney in Milwaukee, Wisconsin named Carl Zeidler. He was asked to work on his speechwriting, advertising, and photo ops, in collaboration with Harold Gauer. They created elaborate campaign shows; in Bloch's 1993 autobiography, *Once Around the Bloch,* he gives an inside account of the campaign, and the innovations he and Gauer came up with — for instance, the original releasing-balloons-from-the-ceiling shtick. He comments bitterly on how, after Zeidler's victory, they were ignored and not even paid their promised salaries. He ends the story with a wryly philosophical point:

    If Carl Zeidler had not asked Jim Doolittle to manage his campaign, Doolittle would never have contacted me about it. And the only reason Doolittle knew me to begin with was because he read my yarn ("The Cloak") in *Unknown [Fantasy Fiction* magazine]. Rattling this chain of circumstances, one may stretch it a bit further. If I had not written a little vampire story called "The Cloak", Carl Zeidler might never have become mayor of Milwaukee.

    ---And Bloch was fairly appalled by the way things were going in the formerly largely progressive Wisconsin GOP, warning incumbent US Senator Robert La Follette, Jr. (the son of the RLF who ran for President as the Progressive Party candidate in 1924, who a;sp founded THE PROGRESSIVE magazine) that Joseph McCarthy's campaign for the GOP nomination should be taken seriously. The LaFollette folks ignored him, and LaFollette lost the primary to Tail-Gunner Joe. As Bloch notes in that autobiography, at least he, Bloch, tried to spare the country the delights of McCarthyism.
