“Dude, you can get past a dog. Nobody f's with a lion.” - Grandma's Boy

“You notice things if you pay attention.” - In The Mood For Love

Marcus Pinn likes movies. Scott Thorough likes movies. Marcus writes about movies (Pinnland Empire, The Pink Smoke), and Scott sometimes scores movies (Newlyweeds, Manos Sucias). They both have a background in hyper underground rap music, and enjoy sandwiches. Through a deep love of rap music, wrestling, and dissecting low and high brow cinema, Marcus and Scott developed an interesting kinship. After a bar conversation about movies where a stranger interrupted to tell them how much they enjoyed listening, they decided, “hey let's see if other people want to listen to our zany thoughts about film”. “Zebras In America” is a stream of consciousness rap on film and anywhere it may take a conversation.

"Zebras In America Opening Theme" music by Scott, scratches by Marcus.

    Episode 162 - Carlo Pangalangan Labrador

    Carlo Pangalangan Labrador is back and better than ever to discuss musicians turned directors.

    * editor’s note-
    when we were discussing Jamie Nares, Carlo was unaware that Jamie had since transitioned, and everything discussed about her work was with love, and there was no ill will in our use of Jamie Nares’ deadname .

My favorite movie podcast love y’all dynamic laid back meandering vibe and the way you shine a light on other things bigger than movies

Ahead of the game and candid convo

These guys, Marcus and Scott, flow over so many different genres of film and also different life experiences during their musings and reviews. They are not pretentious, but extremely well versed. They are honest in their takes- some of which are hot. Their close friendship is very endearing. Some eps feature guests that include directors and critics who are legendary in the field of cinema.
