Double Page Spread ep 145- Mike "McBeardo" McPadden

Outspoken writer Mike "Mcbeardo" McPadden has had a long and tawdry history with cinema, including writing for online phenomenon Mr. Skin as well as Hustler and VH1 and Esquire. He joins Wendi for an engrossing and fun talk about his life in NY during the grindhouse era, his epic book "Heavy Metal Movies" and his current research into the history of teen sex comedies, as well as their shared disdain for ironic "so bad its good" films. 

You can pick up his book "Heavy Metal Movies" at www.bazillionpoints.com and get a cool back patch for your denim jacket!

Zack Kruse has been organizing the well regarded Appleseed convention in Fort Wayne, IN, as well as putting out his own stories and doing academic work in comic history for some time. He has a chat with Wendi about nurturing young creators at conventions, fairy hoaxes, if Dana Scully was a pragmatist or a dogmatist, and a lengthy discussion of his research on the reclusive Steve Ditko- who really created Spider-Man, similiarities between Peter Parker and Blue Beetle, his use of objectivism and the introspective nature of his work. It's an interesting discourse for anyone fascinated by the backstory of Marvel Comics and Stan Lee.

Double Page Spread ep 97- Quigley and Wynorski

Linnea Quigley has made a name for herself in over 150 movies as America's scream queen. She's been bad girls, zombies, victims and predators in films such as "Return of the Living Dead" and "Night of the Demons". Wendi gets to talk briefly to her horror girlcrush and learns about the sisterhood of scream queens. Recently Linnea had some tremendous damage to her roof and needs some help through crowdsourcing. Go check out her cause at http://www.gofundme.com/8tvf3o.

Director Jim Wynorski first broke with the 80s terrorizing robots in "Chopping Mall". Since then he's made over 12 creature features on SyFy ("Camel Spiders", Dinocroc vs. Supergator") and many Cinemax soft core porn parody films like "The Bare Wench Project", "CleavageField", "The Hills have Thighs". He enlightens Wendi on shooting films quickly and under budget, giving Traci Lords her first non-porn role, and the joys of women in prison movies. The man who gave us "Vampirella" and "Return of Swamp Thing" also gives the best answer about what comic book movie he'd really like to make.
