#27 has us camping it up…and living in a Ghost World…

Hello, friends!  We’re back with Episode #27, and it’s full of camp fun and esoteric hipness!  This time around I REALLY GOT PAUL GOOD: I made him watch 1967’s Valley of the Dolls, and he may never, never forgive me.  You’ve really got to hear him to know how much pain I inflicted on him.  It was delicious.

She woke up like this…

Then we talk about Paul’s pick, 2001’s Ghost World, directed by the talented Terry Zwigoff, who also directed one of my favorite documentaries, Crumb.  The movie stars Thora Birch, Scarlett Johansson, and Steve Buscemi, and it could not be more different from Valley of the Dolls if it tried.

Paul’s expression when he realized he was only halfway through Valley of the Dolls…

Find out how this graphic novel turned into a film made me react, and also find out which movies we will be covering next time in Episode #28 (classic slasher horror and basketball and romance are involved, FYI).

Won’t you join us?

Jay
