Fly Like Paper: Mephisto's Castle's Sinister Spotlight Featuring ME!

A few months back, the always-magnificent Jose of Mephisto's Castle asked if I would join him in a powerlifting tournament sponsored by Gatorade and Molson Golden, which I naturally accepted. Unfortunately, that was before I hurt my back trying to learn how to do a proper Buffalo Stance, leaving me laid up and out of commish for six to eight weeks. As a result, Jose became very sad and he did a lot of uncontrollable crying and nose blowing, but then it came to him: instead of having me be his partner in the powerlifting tournament sponsored by Gatorade and Molson Golden, he could invite me to be a guest host for his Sinister Spotlight podcast! And guess what? He did, and I said yes!

Jose asked me to pick a movie for us to talk about, and the film I chose was none other than the 1986 Cronenberg masterpiece, The Fly, a film I absolutely, positively adore. Outside of some minor microphone issues on my end - which take away from my hysterical jokes - the conversation was nothing short of wonderful. Jose and I dug deep and dissected The Fly in a way that only Geena Davis was ever able to, and if you are even remotely a fan of the film, I implore you to take the time to listen to us babble on like Babylon?

  1. I'm still holding out for next year's tournament, brother! These buns of steel need to claim the gold they so richly deserve (what?) and the only partner worth their salt in these parts is you. If you can't do it, *sniff* I'm not sure how I'll handle it.

    Very happy and honored to have gotten the chance to discuss CINEMA with you, O Wise One. When we do this next time, I think we'll need to have way more zinger jokes. And cowbell.

    1. I've been working hard, brother! My pecs and quads are in shape!

      I had a lot of fun recording the podcast with a man of your awesomeness, and again, I thank you for asking me to take part; it is an honor, indeed! Now, quite bugging me! ZING!

    1. Thanks, Ashlee! I think we got some very good things out of the discussion, and I know I came out with an even better understanding of the film after doing so. Such a great film!! We should do a podcast together someday!

    2. That would be fantastic! Even more so considering you're the first person to actually ask me.

    3. It would be so awesome, I bet. The only issue is I have no idea how to do such internet trickery, but it should happen some day! We could do a Krueger Kast!
