" Todd the Convenience Store Clerk "

During this, the pilot broadcast of radio, I answer a letter from a fictitious listener named Todd. Todd's problem is that he works the night shift in a convenience store and is afraid that some of the "people" visiting the store in the middle of the night are actually monsters or some other such nonsense. My goal is to provide Todd with sound advice, just in case one of the customers turns out to be a vampire, werewolf, or bastard creation of a mad scientist.

I doubt any of my suggestions would actually help Todd, should a werewolf start prowling around or if Dracula stopped by to purchase a tube of Fixodent. Use them at your own risk.

Show Highlights
"If they cast a reflection, they're not a vampire. They're just that pale."

"You are...probably not going to survive."

"What you are looking for here is hair...I mean, it looks like they have a toupee glued to their forehead."

"Don't let the werewolf eat canned Hormel chili."

"Once you recognize that you have Frankenstein's Monster in the store, don't start screaming, because we go right back to the smashing."

Notes and Links
I focused on some of the classic movie monsters in this broadcast and all three of the Universal "Legacy" DVD collections are highly recommended for anyone who loves the old Dracula, Wolfman, and Frankenstein films.

Dracula - The Legacy Collection includes the original 1931 "Dracula," "Dracula's Daughter," "Son of Dracula," and "House of Dracula." I love the old vampire flicks and these are perfect examples of classic horror, because the 1930's and 1940's horror movies usually had more of a methodical feel to them than modern films.

There is an excellent blog called Frankenstenia - The Frankenstein Blog for fans of the old bolt neck.

Hormel Chili even has a webpage.

Please keep giving survival tips. I am especially interested in how to survive in a post apocalyptic wasteland. Whatever the subject of your podcasts I will keep listening.

I like this idea, especially now that it's on the horizon, for the love of god read my post on the zombie survival guide in entertainment and you'll know.  Learning how to survive horrible dangers found in bad movies will be a big help.  Seriously, apes, mutants, aliens, anything.

Thanks.  I think I'd prefer you as in-laws.  My mother-in-law gave us an 8X10 photograph of herself for one Christmas.  What I wanted to do with it caused some arguments.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
