    Dana Gould, Patton Oswalt and Matt Braunger sidle up to the mics and let her rip. Hell’s Angels and the origin of biker gangs in America. Who is Wino Willie, and how did he change your life? High School: who hated it more? The Rolling Stones! Stabbing victims! Billy Jack! White Knights v Trollers and much, much, more. With Dana Gould, Patton Oswalt, Matt Braunger & John Ennis.


  2. "Scope: Did you like The Cabin in the Woods (2012)?

    Joseph Kahn: No I didn’t, and I’ll tell you why. Detention and The Cabin in the Woods say very different things about movies. I think in The Cabin in the Woods we’re meant to be smarter than the characters in the movie. You walk in, you know the genre, you know the clichés, and it reaffirms how stupid the genre is and you get to watch other people being punished for that fact. The only surprise is at the end, and it’s not that great a surprise in my opinion—they justify why those things have to be clichés and then a big hand comes out of the ground. Detention works in the opposite way. It says, “You have no fucking idea how genres work.” Nobody in the movie can predict what’s coming next, and neither can you when you’re watching it. We believe that genre can be changed and that more can always be mined out of it. It’s two very different approaches to genre."

  4. "My fear is not merely that the geeks will never come to acknowledge their triumph, as comfortable as they are in their self-professed victimhood. I fear too that we have come to so thoroughly associate fandom with grievance that the two are now inextricable. That, I suspect, is the long-term consequence of the rise of the geeks: that we no longer know how to enjoy art without enjoying it against others. That’s a bitter, juvenile way to approach art, and if it’s the real legacy of the rise of the geeks, it’s an ugly legacy indeed."
