EftRoU 108: political correctness running amok

We had the honor of having a guest again. Ms Cassi Perkins joined the gang to discuss songs that make us happy, a retro DV-Debrief of ‘Blazing Saddles’ and a feature flick discussion of ‘Your Highness’. Other voices you will hear on the show include Shady the Biker, Dillon 2.0, Mike Leach and myself.

The Catchall Segment:

Have you felt like sharing songs that make you happy, well we do so we decided to do it with the world. During the first segment of the show the EftRoU crew share some songs that put a smile on their face. Some of us had a short list and others had a list that could go on forever. Some of us (that means me) didn’t even know the right name of the artists of the songs that make us happy. So here is the correction, be sure to read this before or after you listen to the show. I mentioned the song ‘Fish Heads” and said it was Dr. Demento who was the performer, when in fact it is Barnes & Barnes who sing it. To learn more check out the link to their wiki entry.

Retro DV-Debrief:

Movie - Blazing Saddles

Gene Wilder & Cleavon Little in Blazing Saddles

How many of you remember the Mel Brooks classic ‘Blazing Saddles‘? If you have not seen this film in a while it is time to check it out. If you have never seen this movie you must see it. Listen in as we discuss how much we really do love this movie. Also learn how much we believe this movie could not be made today as well as how today’s youth just don’t get it and may have something wrong with them. In case you forgot this movie stars Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Slim Pickens, Mel Brooks, Harvey Korman and Madeline Kahn. It is a western spoof about a town that is in the way of the railroad. In order to grab the town’s land, Hedley Lemar (Harvey Korman), a politically connected loathsome person, sends in his lackeys to make the town unlivable. After the original sheriff is killed, the town writes a letter to the Governor demanding for a new sheriff. Hedley convinces the Gov to send the town their first Black sheriff. Bart is a sophisticated urbanite who has some difficulty winning over the town, but in the end they all come together to keep their town from Hedley.

Feature Flick:

Movie Your Highness

Universal Studio - Your Highness

When we were planning this show a while back we thought it would be a good idea to take on two spoofs. We thought it would be a cool to compare the two movies, but hands down we found ‘Blazing Saddles’ to be much better than this week’s feature flick ‘Your Highness‘. As you will hear in the netcast we all feel it might be better to see this movie on DVD. ‘Your Higness’ is written by Danny McBride and Ben Best, it is about a prince’s bride being kidnapped. That prince then goes on a quest with his lazy brother to rescue the love of his life. Besides being the writer Danny McBride also stars in this movie as the lazy brother and playing the not so lazy prince is James Franco. There is plenty of eye candy for the men in this movie, including the bare backside of Ms Natalie Portman and the lovely vocal talents of Zooey Deschanel. Please let us know if we are wrong about this movie by leaving a comment and telling us why you should see this movie now and not wait for DVD.
