Joined this week by Alex Robertson AKA DJ Velvet Thunder of The Box Hoxton for the World’s best rampage film: Black Dynamite (2009). Michael Jai White and Byron Minns’ parody of a 70’s Blaxploitation film is one of the most stunning pieces of comedy that I’ve ever seen. Among that rare breed of work that is so steeped in humor, blanketing everything from the sets, to the costumes, dialogue, music and even the filmmaking itself, BD left us speechless*.
*We talked quite easily for 30 minutes.
It’s baseball week at Drink For… so I knew that I had to sit down with Devlin Clemons, the most passionate baseball fan / wrestler / podcaster there is. One third of the Know Your Cinema Podcast, Devlin was gracious enough to point out the error of my vulgar ballpark ways, teach me a little bit about landing a 16 foot suplex during a cage match and how to send your Meat up to the show. Please bring baseball back.
[AIRHORNS] The Episode 50 Special is upon us!! Joined by Zoe Anderson, Andrew “AP” Clarke, Labeja Kodua Okullu, Ian Mantgani and Dr. George Crosthwait, aka my family, this is an experience that I’ll treasure for the rest of my life. Thanks to everyone who’s helped me along the way, I can’t believe that Drink For… is a year old.
Drink For…’s infatuation with Eddie Murphy continues this week with his first ever big-screen role in Walter Hill’s 48 HRS. (1982). Joined by good friends Ian Mantgani and Labeja Kodua Okullu, the missed opportunity to have made this my 48th episode will haunt me to my death. Links to the Breonna Taylor GoFundMe, Scaffolded Anti-Racism Resources and Black Lives Matters carrd can be found at drinkforpodcast.com.
This week, Labeja Kodua Okullu joined me in the closet of shame via his own makeshift tent of solitude. After a rough week, I wanted nothing more than to spend a couple hours drinking with a friend, and swooning over the comedic delights of Eddie Murphy. Good news: it made me feel good for a bit. Bad news: although monumental, our chat did not fix the world. Go to BlackLivesMatters.carrd.co to find an amazing list of resources that you can use to help us fix it.
Sat down with the lovely Fox Jackson this week to talk about his musical idol Prince. After drinking for (dot dot dot) Purple Rain (1984), Fox graced me with the totems of his immense fandom, and ended up giving me a Prince education that I’ll never forget. Or one that I don’t have to worry about forgetting because we recorded it. That’s what this is. It’s a podcast.
This might be my best episode to date. Not sure what happened, or how, but if I can somehow keep this going, I’ll be very proud of myself. The Hitchhiker’s Guide is an all timer for me, but let’s be honest, at this point in the quarantine Drink For… has become a greatest-hits compilation of my adolescence. From probability to proxies, fingerprints to filmmaking, I cover it all in just 40 mins a week.
In which drunk me thinks he knows about Marvel movies. Featuring an extra sneaky SMS, at least one budgetary misunderstanding and maybe the most fun rule to date, I can’t think of a better way to spend a quar weekend than to get hammed up while vibing to some funky 70’s jim jams. As always, proceed with a measure of caution, because I certainly didn’t.
A film drinking game podcast featuring movie recommendations, boozy rules, and, for half of the episode, a very drunk host.
