|Intimate Nickel Portrait|
This week, Rhea and Destiny welcome Becky from All Young Girls Are Machine Guns! Becky plays songs from the new album, Here's Hoping Tomorrow Never Comes, and talks to us about the things near and dear to her heart, including old Adult Swim shows, comics, and Otis Redding. Before that, we keep bringing up time travel and the fiction it inspires, including the new Rian Johnson film, Looper. Rhea gives us her final feelings on that dino-erotica novel, Destiny rambles about Fire Walk with Me, and we list the sweetest boys in the Badlands. We recorded the first part of the episode outdoors, so there are many Comedy Bang Bang-influenced "car breaks."
Spoiler Alerts for the Following:
Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me
Corrections: Lily Tomlin's character in The West Wing was named Deborah Fiderer. Capt. Murphy was the Sealab 2021 character who was trapped under the Jazz Cola machine. The MST3k episode Rhea discusses is called The Deadly Mantis. Allen Heinberg wrote Young Avengers. The Breeder's song Destiny was talking about is called "Shaker in Gloomtown" (see video below).
