MBMBaM 285: Home Alone 0: Blood in the Snow

| 6 comments

There's a lot more to the Home Alone series than slapstick home defense and Tim Curry's pronunciation of the word "pizza." Like, a lot more. Some dark stuff, too -- and it all exists within the confines of Justin's pseudo-canonical thriller fiction.

Suggested talking points: Great British Fancast, Detergent Cop, Hugs for Drugs, Bye Bye Potter, Mrs. Bakula, Utility Ghost, Prequels

Throwing Shade

Happy New Year! Here's to a new year full of true crime, false allegations and documentaries about amputated legs. Bryan is kicking it off right with new claims that Ted Cruz is the most gay-friendly Republican candidate (he's not). And Erin discusses a new United Nations finding that says America is really nailing it when it comes to women (it's not). Oh well. At least we'll always have Gloria Swanson jeans.

Neko Case on Self Determination, Loss, and Life on the Farm

Neko Case has been producing exceptional music as a solo artist as well as a collaborator with the indie-rock band, The New Pornographers. Her work has not only revolved around rock, but also the genre of country music.

Case recently released a retrospective vinyl box set, Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule which collects her music from throughout her career, including some out-of-print and hard to find titles.

Neko Case sat down with Jesse, and told us why she cringed when listening to one of her early songs, how the loss of her parents shaped her personally and creatively, and how living on a farm in Vermont improves her life as artist.

Truckdriver, Gladiator, Mule is available now.
