The Dark Web Daily Show- Wednesday July 4, 2018 INDEPENDENCE DAY

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-jbvpe-948c34

Enjoy, patriots. In this episode I return to a more traditional format. I am going to shorten the weekday episodes to around 45 minutes and give up on the boring FCC bullshit. I’m doing a podcast not a radio show so fuck it right?

Music topic is the band U2. I talk about how I discovered their music and what it means to me. Since it’s Independence Day I talked about a patriotic movie I remebered going to the theater with my parents to see. Michael Bay’s WWII blockbuster Pearl Harbor. The video game memories topic was Contra for the N.E.S. (En Ee Es not nes) I also rant about the younguns on the internet who called it the ness. I hate that it sounds so disgusting in my throat.

I also ditch the news format and get back to a strictly opinionated show. I do plan on tackling some political topics now that I am unchained. The political landscape in the U.S. is unhinged so I might as well take the muzzle off and join the crowd. Expect more angry rants than ever before. The show is called The Dark Web afterall, expect a seedier show from now on. Thanks for listening and those who are easiliy offended please fuck off and listen to NPR.

Best 80’s Trucker movie?

Here is the contest. Which of the following three 80’s films represent the truck driver spirit best? The films are Over the Top starring Sylvester Stallone, Big Trouble in Little China starring Kurt Russell, and Maximum Overdrive starring Emilio Estevez.

Each of these three films presents a different aspect of the truck driver world. Big Trouble focuses on a loner truck driver making his way in the world. Maximum Overdrive centers on a group of survivors at a truck stop being attacked by possessed trucks. The last film, Over the Top, digs into some of the sub culture of the trucker lifestyle.

The great American road trip has been a staple in American culture ever since the beginning of time for this young nation of diverse people. Even before there were automobiles there was the famous wagon trains exploring the American frontier of years past. Also there are the lone riding cowboys who hit the dusty trails of the American wild west. All of these people have one thing in common, leaving their world behind to seek adventure on the open road.

The road trip movie is one of the most iconic sub-genres of the adventure film in American cinema, birthing such classics as Easy Rider, The Blues Brothers, Dumb & Dumber and Tommy Boy.

The truck driver culture, or truck stop culture, of the road trip is a great staple.

This is a look at three feature films each presenting a different aspect of the trucking/trucker culture. As someone who has several family members who either are, or were at one time, truckers or aspired to be truckers, this topic is one I have been holding onto for a while.

It’s going to be written in four parts. Following the reviewing of each movie with the focus on how well does it capture the trucker spirit, then a final review pulling the information from each film onto a final article deciding which of the three is the best trucker film.

This is going to be an ongoing series. It will require the re-watching and taking of notes for each film. Sit back and enjoy the sure to be bumpy ride.
