Bullseye
Guests: 
Bruce Campbell

Our guest host this week is MaxFun's very own Jordan Morris! He's a host and producer on FuelTV's The Daily Habit and of course, co-hosts our own podcast Jordan, Jesse, Go! You can also see him performing comedy at numerous venues throughout Los Angeles. Fun fact: Jordan is one of the original co-hosts of The Sound of Young America, so this is a return to form. He'll talk to a man of horror movie legend, Bruce Campbell.

Bruce Campbell is best known as a B movie icon and one of the stars of the Evil Dead films. He's also a writer and producer who's continued to have a DIY aesthetic and feeling infuse his work (including his own film, My Name Is Bruce). He talks to us about finding a niche in horror and black humor, obsessive fans, and more.

You can see him on Thursdays at 9/8c on USA's Burn Notice as covert operative Sam Axe and in his own spin-off TV movie Burn Notice: The Fall of Sam Axe, now on DVD.

JORDAN MORRIS: This is The Sound of Young America, I'm Jordan Morris. My guest today is Bruce Campbell, an actor, director, and author, best known to film geeks as the star of the cult classics Evil Dead, Maniac Cop, Bubba Ho-Tep, too many to mention. He can now be seen on the television program Burn Notice, the HIT television program I should say. The Burn Notice feature length film The Fall of Sam Axe is on DVD and Blu-ray now. Bruce, thanks for coming on the show.

BRUCE CAMPBELL: Great plug, by the way, great plug.

Jesse and Jordan Head Back to the Adam Carolla Show

| 3 comments

Jordan and I are the guests on today's Adam Carolla Show. You can check out the show here. We had a blast as usual. It's a pleasure to share a set of mics with a guy as hilarious as Carolla is.

We talked on the show about childbirth, about Adam's conviction that movie stars should not have to prostrate themselves before children and geeks, and more.

If you want to hear Adam on The Sound, you can check that out here.

(By the way - there's been some controversy around Carolla that cropped up since we recorded this. I didn't hear the show in question, but I've heard many Carolla shows. He says plenty of stuff I don't agree with, and sometimes things that genuinely bother me, but I think he's a decent guy and not hateful. Saying stupid and outrageous stuff sometimes is his job as a talk radio guy and comedy guy. I think he's really smart, funny and interesting, and in my personal experience, a nice, considerate man. So that's my position on that.)

Superego Bonus Action!

| 0 comments

Our pals at the wonderful comedy podcast Superego have put out a special bonus episode that features a sketch Jordan and I helped with called Amigos Auto Insurance. It was inspired by my horror at the commercials on Los Angeles hip-hop oldies station KDAY. The bonus episode is two bucks, but it's worth every penny. It's full of Superego's bizarre names and nonsense phrases and other wonderful stuff.

You can also check out the free episode on which we were featured, and here's a "Best Of" episode with some of my favorite sketches from their second season.
