Mikel O.D. - mostpeoplearedjs's Podcast - mostpeoplearedjs's Podcast

Maybe I'm just a sucker for deals, but, I think I just got hooked in by Entertainment Weekly -- again. I've subscribed on and off to EW for the past 10 years. It's not a great magazine by any means but there's usually an article or two every issue that I'm interested in. The offer I received this week was to receive the next 57 issues of EW for $10. That's so cheap, it's almost criminal to make an offer like that to a media junkie like me. It seems like it costs EW more in postage than the $10 I'm giving them. So, I pressed the order button and now the issues will go from the mailbox to probably the bathroom pile and then to the recycle bin. Maybe I'll mention some of the more interesting things from the mag on my podcast, like tonight they reminded me I should have been checking out Happy Town. Maybe I'll catch it online somewhere this week.

I'm the kind of guy that will give just about any movie a chance. Last night I tortured myself with the Syfy "B" movie of the week "Mothman". Not even Jewel Staite's pretty smile could save this one. And yet, this movie gets budget from Syfy, and probably even a DVD. Meanwhile, movies like "The Man Who Collected Food" sit awaiting distribution. "The Man Who Collected Food" is a dark, horror comedy that can take something as horrific as cannibalism and make it non-stop laughs.The film is beautifully shot with striking images and lots of blood. So listen to this MPAD episode as the writer/director, Matthew Roth and actors, Mike Kelly and Russ Fox talk about the fun that went into the making of "The Man Who Collected Food."

This weekend there's a horror convention coming to my neck of the woods. It's Motor City Nightmares, and from the cast of special guests like Wiliam Forsythe and modern scream queen Tiffany Shepis, plus some great indie horror movies playing and more, it promises to hold loads of fun for anybody that's a fan of the gruesome and grotesque. I'll be there on Saturday to see "The Man Who Collected Food" and do some interviews for an upcoming MPAD podcast.

Check out the Motor City Nightmares website and come to the show if you can. Around the Detroit area we complain a lot about how nothing bog or good comes around here anymore, so when somehting does, show your support and show up!

I had a very busy weekend and just enough time to put this seven minute video together that features interview and music with Montreal band, Think About Life. Think About Life combine great elements or pop and dance with and indie alternative spin that is exciting and fun. Their live show is all about getting the crowd to join in with their onstage fun. Lead singer, Martin, is very engaging as he often joins the crowd at their level, while Caila, the bassist, provides female vocals and does some pretty funky dancing between bass breaks. On this MPAD#220, they took the time to sit down with me and talk about how what they Think About Life on the road and recording.

I’m watching a fantastic DVD called Renaissance that I plan on covering for next week’s audio episode. If you get some time try and catch it before the podcast is released.

You can get music from Think about Life at emusic, go here to sign up for 35 free tracks. One more thing to mention about Think About Life is the must love dogs as they feature 3 t-shrits with dogs on them.If you have a dog or a cat or whatever you can save money at Petco.com by using my coupon codes Most and Most10.

A few of my friends are at C2E2 this weekend, which looks like one of the best comic cons ever put on within easy travelling distance for me. Unfortunately, my daughter's birthday is on the same weekend so I'm missing out. There are so many fantastic guests there, but one that surprised me is Emma Caulfield. You might rememeber her from Buffy the Vampire Slayer as Anya. Or, if you're not afraid to admit it, and I'll fess up to this one, you might know her from Beverly Hills 90210, as Susan Keats. Like other Buffy alumni, Emma's got a creative streak in her that exceeds acting as well.  She is part of a team that does the webcomic, "Contropussy" a humorous look at the life of an amorous cat. It's been called a "Sex In the City" with animals, but not as disturbing as you're probably thinking.

I'm dropping the OD's daily fix, I think the reader's get it by now - right?

The TV show just didn't do "This American Life" justice. It wasn't Ira Glass's fault, he was just fine, but there are things the audio edition of TAL can accomplish that just can't be done with video. Video is limited, audio is limitless. On the latest podcast episode of TAL, Inside Job tells 2 stories about how once someone is on the inside of something, the temptation to exploit it is sometimes too hard to resist. The first story is about how an investment hedge fund opetration figured out how to cheat the housing market. It's a very telling tale how the mess we're still in was started by greed and manipulation. The 2nd story is a bit more humorous about an ex-cop that turns the tables on cops. I should seriously listen to every episode of TAL, it's one of those programs that make you feel smarter when you listen to it. And, I always need more of things that make me feel smarter.

The photo above is from "Escape" one the worst Smallville episodes I've had the displeasure of seeing, Despite how bad that episode was I'm going to stick around and watch the new episode "Checkmate". Starting a couple years ago Smallville started putting as many DC characters as the show can seem to handle. It's interesting to see how they give each character or team their own Smallville spin. Checkmate is one of the more obscure and tougher DC things to bring to explain, because I'm not sure I understand who they are or what they do. Greg Rucka wrote the series for a while, so it was probably good. Trying to figure out what Smallville is trying to do with Checkmate is definitely difficult. So watch "Checkmate" along with me and let me know if you know what they're up to. One of my favorite message boards, the Pop Syndicate, wrote a review of the episode so check that out too.

 Okay, so I've still got my MunnCrush on. Olivia Munn was on Jimmy Fallon Friday night, and it was a pretty good segment. I've tried watching Fallon's show a few times and while I guess I prefer Kimmel as my favorite Jimmy, Fallon does get the better guest stars. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club was the musical guest. There was a time when I thought I liked this band, that was probably 10 years ago. BRMC are still kicking around, apparently in The White Stripes' closet, really bad blusy stuff that went nowhere. They even had a female drummer, but that didn't help. I can always go back to the Munn clip, and if you want more check ut this clip for the Complex Magazine shoot.

On this week's audio podast of Most People Are DJs I profile the great Malcolm McLaren who recently passed away and review one of my favorite movies, Cruel Intentions. You can listen to the podcast to hear me talk about each and play music by the Futureheads, Blank Dogs and New Roman Times.

A couple of side notes: a lot of what I learned about Malcolm McLaren I got from the book, The Wicked Ways of Malcolm McLaren, a good biography that covers his whole career. I have the book somewhere around my house, I'll have to dig it up. Roger Krumble, the director of Cruel Intentions, also directed The Sweetest Thing with Cameron Diaz, but I never saw it. I did see the Cruel Intentions sequels II, and III. Cruel Intentions II is just okay, and C.I. III is just barely watchable.

Malcolm McLaren passed away yesterday after suffering from cancer the past couple years. There are some people who thought of Malcolm as a talentless manipulator. Then, there's other's who either don't remember who he was, or, being born in the last couple of decades never knew him at all. I'm a bit different from all these people. I've always admired Malcolm, his stunts for publicity, his creativity in molding a band and his own music. I recently saw, The Filth and the Fury, again, and Malcolm had great quotes about his time with the Sex Pistols. If you're painting an accurate picture of Malcolm I'm sure there's a bit of ugliness and arrogance that has to be shown. But, mostly, the picture should be wildly fantastic, no borders and an influence that is still seen today.

Here's a few things that Malcolm is responsible for that make him a great artist: Bow Wow Wow's Sexy Eiffel Towers, "Buffalo Gals" and one of my favorite songs of all time "Madame Butterfly". Yes, I'm aware I avoided the obvious.

If Malcolm were born in the internet age it would have been interesting to see what kind of mischief he could have stirred up. Entertainment Weekly actually carried some good pieces on him today, so check out what Annabella Lwin, Johnny Lydon and some of his other co-conspirators have to say about him. I'll be doing a little more on this on my next podcast.
