The WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR ep 12: “Downtown Anoka”



DANNO KLONOWSKI is a cartoonist and podcaster. MATT  RISNES is a noted film blogger and podcast guest. They have been friends for nearly 20 years and like talking about stuff at length and in-depth.  In the twelfth episode, which was once-again thrown together at the spur-of the moment/last minute, there is no particular theme, but rather a veritable conversational hotdish following-up on some of the topics of the last episode, plus all-new content.

We open with a discussion of Matt’s trip to Arizona (our shared open disdain for Phoenix, Matt visiting the “Old Tuscon’ film studio–3 AMIGOS fans rejoice!–and much more), and then move onto viewer mail. We re-open the can of worms that is G.I.JOE: RETALIATION, have a short talk about the modern (pointless?) career of BRUCE WILLIS, Matt vents about “Pixar Dorks“, Danno and Matt have a in-depth discussion about seasons 1 & 2 of GAME OF THRONES, and then we take a break.

After the break we return with Matt leading a rant on FRANCO vs FRANCO in which Matt gives a blow-by-blow SPOLIER-IFFIC talk about “SPRING BREAKERS“, we get Danno’s thoughts on Matt’s loaning him also THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, the boys discuss season 5 of MAD MEN (which just hit Netflix and Danno consumed in 3 days), and finally end on the genius of STEVE COOGAN’s “SAXONDALE”.

Oh! And Matt just interviewed ROB ZOMBIE, so look for that transcribed interview soon on Matt’s ROPES OF SILICON feature “FORAGING FOR SUBTEXT!

This episodes break music “What I Will Do” was performed by CEESICK, the solo side-project of CASEY ‘THE NELS’ NELSON who you may know best from his band NATIONAL BIRD, his painfully hilarious webcomic SEE BEAUTIFUL INDIANA, or that one time he was on this podcast.
