    • Also because not all of us have been listening scene the beginning and scene you cant seem to post your old stuff you could redo some of your old topics from the first shows.
      I wouldn’t mind hearing your guy’s fav movies in each genre or something basic like that, or maybe its changed a little over the years.

    • Dude, nice list!

  5. Which one is the pussy that wont do the live show (my $ is on Anderson)? Perhaps he can be convinced, if he’s allowed to use a live show as a platform to debut his short(s) and for Bryan to sell his books – that chemo ain’t cheap. At the very least, the LA audience should have a chance to thank/disparage the two before the supposed boogeyman from E. Texas shuts you down.

    Just remember to keep the shorts PG-13 or else 90% of your audience will have to come with their mommy,

  6. Great episode! I think between the hosts’ and the listeners’ top 5 you pretty much nailed them all. One big omission in my eyes though is Brad Davis, star of Midnight Express.

  7. Top 5 “White Guilt Films”
    Top 5 “Product Placement Films” (I always think of that Nintendo movie, that was made to sell a game, and some stupid controller junk that didn’t even work for shit in real life, I’m sure their are other garbage movies made to push a product)

  11. Do “Top 5 Movies We Should Sniff Trax” and then follow up on it.


    Posted by Louis Cipher | March 21, 2014, 9:18 AM
  12. Great episode. I didn’t vote.
    1: Philip Seymour Hoffman
    2: Steve McQueen (Anderson said that he would be on his “top 5 actors who are now dead,” but he was just 50 when he died in ’80)
    3: River Phoenix
    4: John Cazale
    5: Natalie Wood

    I just finished reading “Last Night at the Viper Room: River Phoenix and the Hollywood He Left Behind” a few days ago, so I was getting a bit emotional about Anderson’s River entry (but not to a “you’ve gotta button that up” extent).
    River’s childhood was fucked up. His parents relied SOLELY on his income to support them, to the extent that he referred to Joaquin and his other siblings as “my kids.” Near the end of his life when someone asked him about acting, he said, “well, I never really had a choice.” My favorite part: during his funeral there was the usual hippy-dippy crap that one might expect from his family when suddenly John Boorman cut through the crap, as British people are want to do: “Is there anybody here who can tell us why River took all those drugs?”
    Love. That. Shit.
