GAIDEN #11-- Today James avoids talking about the major news stories of the day in favor of getting in and out as fast as he can, like some sort of a tactical f*ck-up unit. It's a quick one, but we got plenty of garbage to go around. Today he talks about Russia's dumbest assassin, a Florida man's one-man-war on God, and two quick stories about absc…
 
EPISODE #342-- We are back on that Dick-- Philip K. Dick, that is. We're talking Richard Linklater's 2006 sci-fi/animated minor-masterpiece A SCANNER DARKLY (staring Keanu Reeves, Winona Rider, and. . . Alex Jones? Oh no). It's a good one. Don't miss it. What else? We also talk SLACKER (1990), VON RYAN'S EXPRESS (1965), and THE WAY OF THE GUN (2000…
 
GAIDEN #10-- I think this was one of those weeks Lenin was talking about where decades happen. Not a great one.

EPISODE #341- Today we take on the big, ridiculous crime film that is TRUCK TURNER (1974). Starring Nichelle Nichols, Yaphet Kotto, and Isaac Hayes (who contributes a score), Truck Turner is a perfect encapsulation of a time and a place and one of the scummiest movies we've ever reviewed (it's a masterpiece is what I'm saying). We also talk about T…
 
GAIDEN #8-- James once more delves back into the depressing and ridiculous mythology of Madison Cawthorn. After that he gets into a Catholic anarchist anti-abortion activist (?) and her dead baby collection, the rise of Japan's do-nothing man, and what Azerbaijan is cooking up in the former-Armenia. All this and even dumber stuff on today's World's…

GAIDEN #8-- James returns to talk the return of the Mexican Pizza, Madison Cawthorn's brief and terrible brush with being cool, and Elon Musk's "purchase" of Twitter.
