Think of the latest episode of the Savage Hippie podcast as a companion to David’s latest piece at Takimag. Basically, although it most likely has almost no significance in the live’s of anybody who will be reading this or listening to the accompanying podcast, the mishap at the academy awards this year was an inadvertent “fuck you” to political correctness and the smug elites who control Hollywood. Now I haven’t seen either La La Land or Midnight, nor do I have any desire to, so I can’t say which of those truly deserves to win best picture, but I’m fairly certain that neither one comes within a hair of the awesomeness of any of the films that we discuss at length during a good portion of the new episode.
Yep, after about 20 minutes of talking about some political shit, which includes my needless bashing of the work of a couple of David’s colleagues at Taki’s and our nearly getting into a fistfight over whether Breitbart is AltRight or not, we then talk about a bunch of films. Some of these include, but are not limited to, Master of the Flying Guillotine, Ways of Kung Fu, The Amazing Colossal Man, War of the Colossal Beast, Once Upon a Time in the West, Nightmare City, City of the Living Dead, The Beyond, Zombie and Zombie 3.
We do eventually talk about what happened at the academy awards, who was responsible for what happened and, mainly at the end, whether it was a conspiracy against liberal Hollywood or not. If you didn’t already know, Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway were supposed to present the winner for best picture and received the wrong envelope. Beatty saw it first and realized that something wasn’t kosher, but rather than bearing the bad news himself, he gave the envelope to Faye Dunaway so she could do it (atta boy!). This resulted in the cast and crew for La La Land swarming the stage only to be told several minutes after accepting the award that there had been a mistake, and that it was supposed to go to Midnight. If you haven’t seen it, stop everything you’re doing, and watch it NOW. It’s really amusing to watch the smug liberal elitists get egg all over their faces. Not only do they look silly, but they denied the black gay drug dealer movie its mandatory moment in the spotlight.
Other than that, David and I yack about some other shit that you might or might not find interesting; synagogue hate crime hoaxes, authoritarian Japanese society, the New Orleans Jazz Nazi and various white power bands. It’s okay for us to talk about that stuff because we’re Jews.
Featured for the second time on Sounds of Marshabaloosh is guitarist/singer Scott Weinrich (a.k.a. Wino), who as I said before, with his tattoos, long hair and denim vest Hell’s Angel’s visage, is one of my favorite musicians and was in many fine bands. This time around, we’re presenting a brand new song by his earliest band the Obsessed from their soon to be released new album, Sacred. The song as called “Razor Wire”, and you can listen to it here.
The song at the end is “The Diet Has Failed” by the Yesticles, and Clayton V did the artwork, which doesn’t mean and isn’t saying anything.
