“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.

    Since the beginning of 2017 we’ve become increasingly fascinated with the films of Patrick Horvath & Dallas Hallam so it only seems right that we get them on the show.

    Listen as we talk about their careers, influences, Stephen King, and unloved Hal Hartley movies.

    You can follow Patrick on twitter at
    @PatrickHorvath
    And check out his artwork at:

A Great podcast

If you ever miss hanging out with your friends, Scott and Marcus are like hanging out with those friends. They aren’t glued to a topic, they go where the conversation takes them.

Great fun

A great pod for reviews of some films that aren’t promoted as much. Also, I keep notes open to catch the names of films I likely missed from years back.
