Why Does It Exist?

Podcast #5: Arena

"Samuel L. Jackson makes the single-worst choices! Why would anyone want to be in Arena?" - Someone who doesn't get it

Every couple of years, a movie is made wherein the power of the Internet is harvested for nefarious means and gladiatorial combat. 2011’s entry is Arena, a straight-to-DVD effort that pairs Twilight beefcake Kellan Lutz with Formula 51’s Samuel L. Jackson. It is a movie that promises very little and delivers exactly that, while also wasting the talents of supporting players James Remar and Dan’s main squeeze, Degrassi alumni Nina Dobrev. To my knowledge, though, it is the only movie in which Jackson makes out with a pair of nubile Asian twins.

This week’s song is Black Country by psychedelic-lunatic-pop-tribal-stoner-punk-fusion-surf-wave duo Tonstartssbandht off their 2009 opus An When. Thanks to the guys and Arbutus Records for letting us use the song! You can catch them at South by Southwest in March. They have no other dates planned so far, but I wouldn’t worry. These guys have toured Georgia (the country), for fuck’s sake.
