Atop the Fourth Wall: The Movie!

Lewis "Linkara" Lovhaug was kind enough to offer me a role (the astronaut Anders) in this, an epic, all-star film spectacular spinning off of his long-running web series. I had a blast filming it, especially getting to visit one of the local film studios. Hope you enjoy!

[Masters of Carpentry] Prince of Darkness

We're joined by Melissa from the always glorious Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome for a look at this oddball horror film mixing theoretical physics with apocalyptic theology. Alice Cooper stabs people with a bike. Donald Pleasance has an axe. People are really a horde of bugs wearing a skin. Icky squirt guns are sprayed about. And all will be reveal on One. Nine. Nine. Nine.

Check it out here.
