Badland Girls

This week, Rhea and Destiny get real jolly with talk of their favorite holiday movies, songs, and television specials! We also discuss dark and weird computer games, the new Superman movie trailer, and some Hobbit feelings. We treat you to a couple of songs from the Skull Sketches musical Rhea co-wrote, and Destiny reveals her love of Christmas Carol adaptations. Also: A Christmas Story vs. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

There's no theme this week, as Rhea is hard at work co-writing and starring in a Christmas musical! She and Destiny spend some time chatting about the junk they've been absorbing lately, such as Mad Ron's Prevues from Hell, heavy metal sexism, and the cinematic "genius" of Neil Breen. There's also audio viewer mail and teen movie talk! Look out for the cold hand of Kurt Cobain's ghost in this one, kids!

This week, the Badland ladies freak out over the new Star Trek teaser trailer, and talk ZOMBIES! Learn why science and zombies don't mix, why vampires ain't all that, and balk at their ambivalence over the upcoming Hobbit film! They also read a nice fan email and deal with the sound issues involved with recording an episode in an Asian fusion restaurant on a Friday night.

After such a long hiatus, the internet herself begs the Badland Ladies to come back! They discuss all the movies watched while away, including Skyfall, Harold and Maude, and Lincoln.  Rhea and Destiny also come to blows (almost) over Beyond the Black Rainbow and Black Sabbath (the Mario Bava movie, not the band!) After catching up,it's time to go through every single movie directed by JOHN CARPENTER and give an opinion or two. Tell us how much you missed us: badlandgirls at gmail dot com!

This week, the ladies keep up the spooky goodness and chat about Stephen King! Rhea and Destiny also discuss the steamier side of caramel apples, the steamier side of dinosaurs, and the not-so-steamy appeal of Jean Rollin movies. Rhea finally wrote a theme for Comic Book Corner! Destiny can't pronounce "vampirology"! RED RUM IN THE MIDWEST, YOU GUYS!

This week, we're getting real spooky as we kick off horror month! Rhea talks robot bees, takes back last week's Terminator feelings, and discusses the fine manga of CLAMP. Destiny watches a horror film every day, questions the death of cinema, and is attacked by animals in her sleep. We also discuss pop culture-related fears from childhood, including mirrors, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and a particular spooky vhs tape.

This week, Rhea and Destiny welcome Becky from All Young Girls Are Machine Guns! Becky plays songs from the new album, Here's Hoping Tomorrow Never Comes, and talks to us about the things near and dear to her heart, including old Adult Swim shows, comics, and Otis Redding. Before that, we keep bringing up time travel and the fiction it inspires, including the new Rian Johnson film, Looper. Rhea gives us her final feelings on that dino-erotica novel, Destiny rambles about Fire Walk with Me, and we list the sweetest boys in the Badlands. We recorded the first part of the episode outdoors, so there are many Comedy Bang Bang-influenced "car breaks."

This week, the Badland Girls keep things short, as they are prepping for a live show that, by the time you are reading this, has already happened! Rhea talks rare blood, Destiny brings some country sass, and both ladies learn the truth about dinosaurs.

This week, we conclude the Ultimate Parker Project with Crank 2! Rhea talks comics, Destiny responds to an old AV Club article, and we have a lot of feelings about that Scarlett Johansson album full of Tom Waits covers. We also discuss the weird world of ASMR, goosebump music, and crappy media from our childhood.
