From the Stereo to Your Screen: The Coupe De Villes and Big Trouble in Little China

“Big Trouble in Little China” by The Coupe De Villes from Big Trouble in Little China     I’m never putting the column’s selection up to a vote ever again. While I absolutely adore John Carpenter’s music, as well as Big Trouble In Little China as a film, this song is horrid. I’m pretty sure everyone either voted on this because of one of two things: They knew the movie, but had no idea about the song. They knew the song and wanted me to suffer. Knowing you people, I’m assuming the second, more than the first. This song’s rough.

The second time, I had kinda / sorta broken my foot and

Films from the Void: METAMORPHOSIS

FILMS FROM THE VOID is a journey through junk bins, late night revivals, under seen recesses and reject piles as we try to find forgotten gems and lesser known classics. Join us as we lose our minds sorting through the strange, the sleazy, the sincere and the slop from the past and try to make sense of it all. Metamorphosis Metamorphosis is, at its heart, a nasty movie. It’s part of an ad hoc collection of films known in Italy as the La Casa series, playing off the popularity of the Evil Dead films — known in Italy as La

From the Stereo to Your Screen: The Dickies and Killer Klowns From Outer Space

“Killer Klowns From Outer Space” by the Dickies from Killer Klowns From Outer Space   This is, quite honestly, one of my favorite songs of all time. Any chance I have to work it onto a compilation, mix tape, radio show, podcast, or otherwise, I will foist it upon those listening. Not only is it the theme to an excellently underrated movie, but it’s probably the best punk song to ever use “Entry of the Gladiators” as its backbone. Granted, it’s probably the only punk song to use the circus calliope as its backbone, but still — fantastically catchy song. The
