Sometimes life throws you a curveball. Even a show as meticulously prepared and researched as Why Does It Exist? can come upon some problems. We thought we were watching Blast, a film starring Breckin Meyer and Shaggy as they took down some evil terrorists – but what we were actually watching was Blast, starring Johnny Cage from Mortal Kombat and Rutger Hauer as they take down some evil terrorists. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Topics covered include orgies, the Vidal Sassoon fortune, Shia LeBeouf laying out the beef for a Sigur Ros video, Dan’s mom, the girl next door in the ‘It Wasn’t Me’ video, BetaMax piracy and a veritable treasure trove of nonsense.
We’re joined this week by writer and musician Pamela Fillion who has known Alex since forever and really wants to tell the world about how he was in high school, but that’s something for a different podcast that will never exist. You can find her writing at Forget The Box and her music here.
We’re also joined for the first time by Danica Fogarty, who usually watches the movies with us but declines to comment on them. Evidently, Blast was a rare beast.
