This one is for @matzamafia, because I know how much he is going to love the subject line. You’re welcome, Jacob.
In this episode, I try a new tactic – bad movie fandom. Apparently, my mistake was to be overexcited by someone being a fellow bad movie connoisseur. Perhaps I could have asked what other bad movies she enjoyed. Is it possible that my tagging of “Zardoz” as a bad movie offended her? Maybe I could have asked her if she had seen the Raul Julia made-for-PBS extortion scheme “Overdrawn at the Memory Bank” – perhaps the worst-made (post 1980) movie I’ve had the thrill of intaking through my ocular cavities.
Oh, and no thanks to televenrues corp for taking down all you tube footage of Jim Kelly wearing a jetpack in “Black Samurai.” Fuckers.
If you loved “Pulled pork, whiskey & bob dylan…” you will merely tolerate “Zardoz? Wow.”

Hey there. I couldn’t help but notice that you love Zardoz. That’s kind of amazing. I’ve only seen it once, on the big screen, after hours at the movie theater my friends work at, after years of being told I needed to see it.
I love doing Sean Connery impressions, especially “The penis is bad. The sword is good.” [Editor’s note – Jacob, I’m sure this is slightly inaccurate, much as the words “Play it again, Sam” were not uttered in “Casablanca“]
It’s not the only bad movie I enjoy. One of my favorites of all time is Black Belt Jones. Kung fu and blaxploitation all rolled into one awesome movie with Jim Kelly and Scatman Crothers. Who could ask for anything more?
Anyhow, hope you’re doing well.
