Gene Shalit is Alive and Well

After several months, Ty returns to discuss Gene Shalit, old high school yearbooks and other nonsense.  Heavy is off trying to find a good crappie spot, so Ty and Gustav have to record without him.

 

Being men of a certain age, they discuss hair cuts, rogue hairs and eyebrow trimming before they retell the story of Heavy at the family night and his campaign to be the mayor of the 903 area code.

Ty recently got four copies of his mom’s high school yearbooks so they talk about Father Monteblanc who is featured prominently and how different the high school kids of early seventies and late sixties looked compared to subsequent generations.

Speaking of high school, Gustav retells the story of his poor French teacher and how after almost 30 years, she is still haunted by the memories of teaching Gustav to ecoute et repute.

They discuss the decline of family reunions and how Megan’s family reunion t-shirt caused awkwardness.  Then Ty relates how Megan’s dad is pissed at him for an ice cream recommendation.

Speaking of Megan’s Movie Podcast the boys turn to film and film critics.  Gustav talks about Bobby Wygant and Siskel and Ebert, and then they wonder if Gene Shalit is Alive and Well.   On air fact checking confirms he is, at least at the time of the recording.

It’s either Gene Shalit or the Wizard of Oz

They then discuss Peter Bogdonovich, Ben Johnson and the Last Picture Show as well as Russ Meyer movies, Mexican Charlton Heston in Touch of Evil, Marilyn Chambers as the Ivory Snow girl and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.

 

It’s a fast paced stream of conscience episode so buckle up.

Touch of Evil

Ty and Gustav are back for an episode where they answer listener emails and talk about old movies like Rear Window and Touch of Evil.  Sorry to sadden anyone, but once again, this is an episode without the one and only Heavy Longmire.  Maybe in the future, he will return to the fold.

Gus gets the ball rolling with a story of premature aging and discusses how people approach him for help in stores.  The guys then talk about Heavy’s propensity to close talk and discuss a recent report about an unbelievably high number of heterosexual men reporting to have cuddled other men in a non-sexual way.

Gus reads a couple of emails from Pretty Ranch Wife as she works through the back catalog of listeners.  She addresses recent roadkill adventures out in West Texas which leads Gus to tell the story of a classmate’s run in with a buzzard back in the eighties and how it ruined the dress of the kid’s mom.

Once again Ty lobbies for an appearance on Megan’s Movie Podcast.  In lieu of a appearance on a far more successful podcast, Ty and Gus head down the film path and discuss gay characters in Westerns like Tombstone and There Was a Crooked Man.  That somehow leads them to Charles Nelson Reilly (once again).  They then talk about how much they love Alfred Hitchcock movies like Rope, Rear Window, Vertigo, and The Trouble with Harry.  Not surprisingly, Ty discusses Grace Kelly and Gus has some thin shaming comments to make.

Orson Wells and Charlton Heston in Touch of Evil

Ultimately they turn to the subject of remakes which they have mixed feelings about and that leads to a brief discussion of film noir and they both geek out about the classic Orson Wells film “Touch of Evil”

So send us your emails about film noir, roadkill, Chuck Berry  or which tv shows you wish Charles Nelson Reilly had been a guest star on to  canyouhearmepod@gmail.com
