In this surreal episode, special guest Emma Cogan challenges Vanessa and Elijah to find the perfect martial arts pairing for the Japanese psychedelic odyssey that is House (1977). After fawning over Blanche the evil cat, Vanessa and Elijah counter with the absurdist oddity Shaolin Drunkard. But can anything measure up to the singular vision of a movie where a girl named Melody is eaten by a piano? What do the watermelons represent? And what is Vanessa’s history with the toad demon?
The official snack pairing for House and Shaolin Drunkard is watermelon and wine that you drink out of a tiny cannon.
