4 Moon Feature

You’ve gone and done the unthinkable. You’ve brought back all those feelings of a Friday night in my local video rental. The 80’s and 90’s were facing a crisis. No one wanted another Taxi Driver or a 2001, we didn’t need gritty, Oscar winning direction that the 70’s were famous for. What we needed were dolls with drills for heads and futuristic coppers with names like Deth!! You brought us up to date Charles and gave us what we needed and you’re doing it again with this podcast! Love every second and I’m always stoked to see you pop up on my new this week. Do us a favor and interview yourself and let loose! And for the love of Baby Oopsie ditch the 60 minute format. Go all out, give us the 3 hours we are looking for!
