Right it has and they threw two and he gave us his first name can we not just call him Allen. Guys now all right what's dark haired what does he say. As a high school and college aged person in the eighties I was looking forward to the podcasting you did not disappoint really here's the score we can't I guess it's an island. It was nostalgic listening to what was going on April 1984 my favorite time in the eighties was 8485. My senior year of high school and freshman year in college an interest in how the show goes forward. That's Allen from the cornfields of southern Illinois. Oh thank you Allan fantastic. Cornfields you think that it's what it says so old he literally yeah he wrote that well Alan Douglas he meant he cranking up that corner really appreciate it with corn. Who doesn't love a good green monster oil corn. And configurations and sold some great movies came out in the area. Oh until nineteen. Tell what you we know and maybe this may also help Hulu where you and 820 you know I need to where where were you what we're doing. In May of eighty to gosh IE I have I would struggle to remember specifically where wasn't what I was doing in in May of 1982 I remember of the house we were in this is in the tri cities. That's only because I know we lived there from the age of about six to almost. Ten or twelve years old so. Am I remember that house I remember. May of 82. Now while I'm Evan Jon struggling nine year old Chris with Smith is live at the door. Still runner and is under ruse and they get up early Moore is Saturday mornings to eat their cocoa puffs and watch cartoons. Pete yes who were you in 82. I realized I was just a year shy younger than and then senior walker over there living in San Diego will leave a you know we had a dog that there was lamenting the fact that Buck Rogers was off the air at the moment oh he does because that was the way of life for me. Didn't have the Andrews I will say this I always wished I did. Always want them never heard of them I had the Spiderman. Under ruse and I think I had I think at bat and I spent a lot of time in my Spiderman numbers. I did have eighteen that Jim has now. 018 opinion mills 1818. And 82 in I think. That tracks coming well what's on eighteen could campus there's there was the van unlike their heads the Kyra and I were sort of left hand. And I have to double check assure another little fun you know anti zag as we this is again that that Mandela affect. Yeah so if it's interesting that you know eighteen was 83 so I did not have their gym is never got while just a run free. And I really reliant on my program. The only good oh and I really didn't stop you know you're finishing the you can't remember 82 by IA was trying to recall this as well and I I sort of mixed memories because I I know that my parents were split up in June of 82. Because I have my ninth birthday and my parents would have department that was the present them at the site or no that's about it quite a true story panel as the press. I also have a very clear memory of going with both of my parents and this may be a false memory like walker has about the the booby hands. I remember me junction city Kansas senior wrath of Colin and I checked this before. Unprovoked on the the main Shelton. I remember both my parents fell asleep during the off of colony in the theater mile and they loved scifi so I'm not sure what how that how but I have a very very distinct memory in no middle outside fire really be tricky it's both I believe I made delayed they generally -- sigh -- I think they were on the drug therein might get hair curl and actually tomorrow so I just remember my dad snoring in the movie theater in and making people very he angry and all I wanted to do was see again put things in there years. I think generate. The city Il's those speaking out about Star Trek to the wrath of Condit did come out this month in 1982. I've heard of it yeah this was some good. This this is the movie that almost didn't get made. And because Star Trek one. Or a Star Trek the motion sickness I was so. Poorly received in the theaters it's the motion picture and no don't write a letter to slow motion picture of this motion picture goodness gracious. The the extended cut Pink Floyd video. Since the since I had that humanity Sydney nine and since it was so poorly received. Both critically and and commercially. This second movie almost didn't get made. And I believe in and you can correct me if I'm wrong you've got the some of prayer right there someone Willis we're learning through quickly until somebody pitched. The return of calm there was not going to be a second Star Trek movie like the French as I was just gonna be going under. But they brought on they run Ricardo Montalban and brought on I'm Nicholas Meyer and that was the magic that they needed. To push it through and get agreement for the second over. Andy Moore didn't wanna do you want to monitor it but they promise they kill him off yet a 100% Nemo and he was like I'll do one more that's a big bold move yeah. Revisiting is like we did it I would put the cap on it I really not that interest and and was in search of on TV at this time. It might have been. I've been because I always love you more on that Kelli is there really elegantly oil. So apparently. Spock to death which was the selling point. Led to such a massive. Lashing out from the fans old man and a bigger reversed Meyer Nicholas Meyer Nichols plan Nicholas Meyer. Was not. Super onboard with that but to you know you have to go with the way of the public opinion and and also worth noting the film is significant because it is the first feature film to contain want more yeah. Hang on my shoes and I don't think it's movies it's not true Islam a complete sequence made entirely of computer generated effects wow all. The sequence in stature to an instructor to it's going to be it's going to be an issue power now. I believe so no no no not just assistants Denis is that you can get the young generation yep there is cutthroat and also just the jumping back real quick in search of was 76 to 82 it went off beard it. Are seeing very accurate they're they're right there thank you when you Osama rep have gone yet in the theater. And sparked guys in did you think like that it might. Yes did you think he would stay debt. I was nine such things didn't really cross my mind I was just really upset yeah. Yeah so I guess you could say that I definitely believed that that was it because. At the time I wasn't reading a lot of comic books where heroes come back every other week. You know I hadn't I wasn't watching you know soap operas where again and the guy you thought was that was really just on a long vacation they. I'm bringing actor back in the characters and if this wasn't a thing for me yet look so honestly. I probably believed under percent the that was it for Spock. I know I know I did and I just from everything you like all bets are off flip what is gonna happen what do they do in rank you know maybe this is the end of Star Trek forever. This house that yeah. But this was the first. I'm there major beloved character of mine on and on anything on television program movies TV and it. Anything like that had happened to like the first time I lost like somebody who. I really really cared about that wasn't in my immediate family. Second for me because console you got to remember yeah empire strikes back ends and we think console has done for. He's been turned into a coffee table and I I think I felt that ultimately a little more than I I felt Spock but I've felt Spock. Exactly where does the orange thing I had a slightly different take on that 'cause at least man now I mean you re you're you're I those who say. At least you know they're going sequel so we know that were serial rising an ounce Alou wasn't dead. Right so I knew there was more to come break and they would address that but first seven or eight year old kid yeah IO Hans solo gone up yet. Now I feel that there. Brief rough rough and I'm mostly a left privy to yet another yeah well exam without having her return for all the talk about an episode yet know when Andy isn't it time that somebody finally focused on Star Wars. Geez I mean there's none of covered up their another movie they share my young childhood but I think came out in May. That was Conan the barbarian now I didn't see this one in the theater you and I didn't seem a little. Yeah HBO special it was on all the time get. But it's significant to me because this is the first movie that I specifically remember a naked woman that. Yeah yeah now they definitely want their we we we we we cannot yet exactly no one's gonna sit right back to me but. This was the very first time in and I think my mom wasn't expecting it because I saw just there and there she was. And it was quick you know the other seem what are they they release the girl into the cave with him so that he can be bred to their finest docs. But the fact. Com and this movie that's still to this day I think back on very very fondly and I realized that it was. We kind of lady. Kind of racial Lockheed sword and sorcery sort of mash up lab based on the comic book that I hadn't been reading at the time but it went went. Dog off for right after a slow moving public but I'm what are what are you guys recollect about current or Marion. I was not reading the comic but I was aware of it I may have had an issue of Conan like you know you can pick a pile of books at the garage sale yet. Greg and and look only later what I understand what agree comic it wasn't no highs should have been having it together the whole time. I unlike you I didn't see it and I don't know why I didn't see it. In the theater necessarily because I was going to a lot of movies. Maybe eight you know you just you just miss it as I did with the rogue warrior now and we'll talk weather at the minute that. Yeah I didn't get into it until later when I was on HBO showtime you know what have you eaten. That's that's the way I experienced it to us through age feel I think just because known in the house disinterested and seeing command and therefore I'm not going to go see economic and I'd wanna do. Somehow I was aware of and I don't know that's a good point you have my Mamas never big fantasy. She loves scifi but ran into C apprehension and there's really not her bag and you might have seen the trailers and decided may be that the little blue violent coming it's hard to say at the time but I mean yeah there on the phone caller yeah. Well sure I've got to remember she's out. Third episode jungle is directed this you know who wrote the screenplay for comment I think I have against who they Sutton and I'm not sure that I can play of I totally know you have to act. John the last fifteen minutes all her style all her home phone and you actually there's cons and here's you know under the Terry conspiracy about what I wrote a letter and asked. Larry it. I don't know it's not a good thing. I have no conspiracy no cure I do know that Schwarzenegger did most of his own stunts right which was a big deal than. And that they had two swords in the swords were. Increasingly expensive yes and grand each. I actually just saw one of those swords at the remote pop. Formerly known as soon there it's immature they're just saw this past week that's right. Well welcome it's too it looks great was this some who was this the second it's. Or third movie for for for Schwarzenegger because I know Hercules in New York. Was there one in the middle of somewhere what a what the dead this sort of soft core of more and I'm the man has something. I do look it up man speaking of bananas something or other bananas knows why you guys do that. I while I am. You know if Schwarzenegger Lauren this is going to be important when he becomes president. He can't become president if she or from what I'm just wait for that amendment be very glad that. I'm telling you man demolition man had everything right. He's got the Dem I'm on my MTV had a handful of things before come and the Barbara area. Money I can iron out there which is like the obvious one right like there's an episode of Streets of San Francisco and usher because I'm in no it's not a movie but he does have an un credited role in the long goodbye. Wanna. He's hood in August dean's office is really see America it's more interest now yeah. And who. You know I mean otherwise is that Tuesday a little TV here there. Our scavenger hunt apparently chose yeah I remember a miscarriage or not I don't tune medicine ball as scavenger hunt is is in 79 so we we won't ever get into Atlanta and I miss movies like that he threw. Jam. Movies religious Starbucks people and a thing yeah like a huge ensemble cast can tell just then and there's some crazy McGovern in name yeah yeah we'll and then maybe those we'll come back interment cool attitude will write one and will will cast doctor island Stockard from the cornfields of a little young maybe aren't that I ideally he'd be up for. So let's see let's look at the legacy of cone and of course you know yeah we had Conan the destroyer of course after that and we did the red Sonia spin off also true although. That is not good cook the Conan is in it though shorter winter or John F death and then of course there was a terrible remake and you're leaving one little bit haute. He includes a common guy you founder of the barbaric and this is on a true man I loved where would we be good up and are now. Although it should be noted that fund our predates Cullen and as a movie. Sure I don't bust. The influence of the character for sure. Thank you for that well known are just nothing electric correction you know you don't what else can Adam Curry and Ellis a huge. Oh that makes sense too because they were gonna market proponent toys and the GDP TB decided that that movie was way too violent to sell kids toys for. So they re skin them and just sold them as a whole new character. How like ten gentler we allowed to go on the spark there to lead mistress because like I just wanna bring up the he man action figures yours sir autumn back in the day when I always came out had about and they were never my thing I had a he man that somebody gave me as a gift mentally and I thought they were cool but they just didn't. For it looked like. Scale signs to Star Wars and Jerry Joseph were the right there understand I'm eighteen action figures may have led to different sizes analysts there was like this sort of consensus election figures we roughly the three and a quarter right. We'll go with that many years he's scheming and things I don't know what to do it and their cool but I don't know what to do with them to they couldn't really interactive anything but themselves with that's an interesting point to his. I would I had a couple few my neighbor whose folks were were crazy and spoil the heck out of them had like all the accessories and both loving your child as a crew. Griese didn't just stay with me on this and so we go over but we couldn't we couldn't do that we couldn't unless they were like some sort of race of crazy giants know what I. Mash unit I'm right where you guys had scale those TV for your toys so yeah OK yeah I was close to learn and dude dude dude doesn't work in the world and it doesn't make. Yeah man. I would I didn't cross pollinating as long as things we're the same time we I know I definitely I just our hours is scheduled to borrow star were ships absolutely receivers guns and enjoys very well and I feel a lot better about going into my childhood girls thought. And I'll. My movie that I never saw any toys from the road warrior. They do exist now. Now now I'm sure they must Wear for everything yeah right. But back you know I may need to answer remains. A no toys from Europe where. Oh god you don't what was that Fred. Because they George Burns won't know George Burns but I mean that big big big guy it was I'm it was boss instead. Was and then yeah. Because oh god oh god book two were both Bob Denver bright that everybody in the in a value dole they shoved him out for younger guy. And it was he was a guy who played Boston that blossoms dead mostly younger guy for anything ever have a do you really cold I'm just telling you the younger than Bob Denver has that her Bob. Bob Denver mayor John Denver paint you're not you know daughter Denver know Bob Denver with silicon. That's not from god. John Denver was the singer correct and the star of that the old guy and raised in Paris corrected by a by by ideology and and you're changing Denver Colorado is named after both of them. So I'm Pamela last year Gregory dear I'm looking at the garden only level yeah I don't know facing that dude man I think he's me and I think that there were term what was the next oh god moving them because they know he was in there somewhere. Or are those the lose lose the second listed actor and no value double the head while sidewalks OK so cap on Mecca. I do temperament and what does he know and tapped the loss Spin City during a major rules and older and older and older and older and older workers is now much much older we've played. Firm KP memory asked how tangential we can go oh I can edit all this out I do we need is to be rightfully here. Never let up but is it going to. You know it's gone back to America our little island because that's a very exciting podcast don't you know no business. Kansas political podcast live new moon in the moment with us and green machine cream of the John go a little cursor between camp there and soap. In oops. Right in that neighborhood big how big sister I don't mind having hundreds. Any episodes is this crap car had I am stuff yeah I guess right now I don't think I need an answer to this. Fifty. Looks like and I hold you I'm not insane Ted YLIO. Line although. How well do you live now OK fair enough and I'm agent excuse habitat loss big guy from old god you devil. Is that due to play dawson's dad what would you argues me about something like that so when you say go to the guys page or go to the guy's pitching what comes up. Whole bunch of things really aren't that I was thinking on you roosters that no blow to that encourage these yeah I think George like okay. Pronged hit anyway I feel vindicated and I don't care and mail says I actually has always been that hard and yet it's really great yeah it's very important they're 1982 for this to be factions of the road warrior. No I made. Finishing the note that we have a little bit of panic because there were some discrepancy in the information to the road warrior of course an Australian movie Blake and predecessor young had an X-Men X. And we. Had a little moment of panic because on the one hand it's as early status may have 82 right. Career or December of 81 run depending on which hemisphere you live and. December December 81 was was the Australian release on this one but were retirement the United States released. But that's an interesting point in and I like that you brought that up specifically because we have you think this. Very welcome nine driver and I appreciate that the is the type of in depth research that really hurt you think. So a we have this amazing tool at our disposal now that we live in the future we can literally on its. Time content and there you go way back machine have to do not let you know didn't. This is the kind of thing that might just came back from DeSoto wherever you do in Australia if you really wanted than mammograms and I'm glad I got it wrong rounds anyways. They told me it's fine we're fine. Go fits. So our time machine let this go back. Oh yeah the Internet. We we wouldn't we would've had to go to. Of a library and grab an encyclopedia Britannica and we probably wouldn't still have found out exactly when. You know. The rover there is released I think and 82 we were still using the encyclopedia board. Who lured him here where I mean I wish I had the rim shot cued up I'm glad you don't know. Who's and I I didn't see the road warrior in the theater and here's why don't really had it not fair because it's a no I really wanted to see really wanted to see it. As I think I mentioned in previous episode I used to find out about movies that I hadn't seen through star log yup and her magazine yeah. And I desperately wanted to see Mednax and they were running ads for mad Max in star blog but I lived in America. And was like seven yet when mad Max him out her lawyer couldn't see it and video stores were not really a thing and I wasn't finding it on the east Cinemax or the HBO so I actually didn't seem mad Max on the road warrior until I was in like. Junior home. Greg middle school and I thought to how dare you double featured them both some. Right before thunder dome came out thing I saw I saw rogue warrior in the theater before I saw mad Max because of a very similar situation I just didn't. Mad Max as it turns out didn't do very well in the united state know. Which is all a lie it was changed what the name was changed from mad Max two which was what it was called in Australia. To the road warrior because they wanted to either make people believe that it wasn't a follow up to that movie that didn't do very well or just trying. Like they were kicking up a new franchise and it hard to say exactly. Based on what I remember being nine year old of the climate. This was not a movie that you personally have not done very well and now they wanted to give it another try because the second movie had been so popular in Australia though like OK let's give this another shot in the State's interest yeah. Yeah ornaments and it's you know considered one of those seminal eighties movies a 100% yes absolutely and and we wouldn't of had surrendered without itself and I still won my fair movie. I didn't see it in the theater because parents right now you're not seeing that they just don't understand. Due to violent yet Q violent too adult theme sure what Niger. But by the time it hit HBO really yeah go ahead we don't there right fair enough and and I think this was scifi enough or might have gone and seen with my friend's dad it's for everything it's a Brady like bleak now we act like you know and then after it's great amid action hero and lots explosions yet. Exactly right Mel Gibson hadn't offended the entire planet earth you hate correct he was still just a note just Australia there's just gel yeah I can work its way across a comment one look at it see in the theater yet. 'cause I'm like god loving American and a rocky three. Who dad and Lugar also saw in the theater took we'd all the rocky movies oh yeah yeah I'd that was but I'm sort of a family thing ray you do the Iraqi this week. Everybody was kind of an Iraqi is what I mean yes yes yes yes it sounds good right genders IE I have a crazy unabashedly love for their argument beast well almost all of them. And even the months there's speakers there's still parts of that I think remains my girlfriend loves rocky movies and I mean like we get a sense you have a girlfriend how I might go 518. And this kind of telling about the movie she says. The soundtrack and she's not wrong you know run me like eye of the tiger that was his first appearance of eye of the tiger showing up that was clever Langer and mr. to a brewing and also in the beginning your thunder lips which is hope hope that I think I airlift sand Mickey dies right Nikki dies in 93. So to. Three. Checked packs and I'd miss remembering an espanola yet Mary on yeah it's it's and also the sound Jackie say he and little piece of trivia. You know the song you're the best turnaround from the cricket here. You know Joseph being the leader is flushed and that was actually intended for rocky three but they passed on in favor of eye of the tiger so there's a universe. The same air Stoltz back to the future universe the alternate dimension where I am tiger plays in the credit kids maybe. And best around plays and Iraqi through oh here's the thing tonight you know also a thing to know about I have the tigers yeah that they wrote the song specifically for the movie. It wasn't a single that they had heard like hey here's a song and it fits kind of what we're going for Stallone like had some very clear vision specifics he wanted for a band to write a song and he didn't think it you're the best around was it was good enough. Or did or did he hear eye of the tiger and say oh that's the one I don't know is that my my reading in the info that I got duke never mentioned about our own heart assist with China of that now that's a great note yeah he's gathering you wanna talk about another movie that just is the eightieth. Or other imovie and and Sandra really yeah well. Well what else do you remember about me I'm making three run into him nick fury how. They never made a Mickey three wind tomorrow around this a community you live to see Mickey one. Now I you know he's not the best of the series now but it sure is home all the worst oh I eat I'm gonna challenge it's not necessary like the best. But it hasn't thrown a scary intensity. And Erin UT it's frightening to me there and I'm like he terrified me. And that's the guys that you've seen you know on on what levers that comes in cartoons and Jonathan different strokes and yes he cannot regulate all of Duffy and I was like the tough guy but he wasn't scary and this was just intense and and right and scary clover Lang was an area that's of uncertainty was just kind of a big guy I used gruff and as this thing but clever Lang was actually terrified. I'll give you that there is that there is agreed to SNL moment. From around this time with Hulk Hogan.
