On the third-annual (but really only second) It Literally Came From the Woods episode, the boys travel deep into the interior of northern Ontario to record an episode on arguably the most widely documented sighting of UFO activity: The Phoenix Lights! Discussion abounds on what’s real and what’s not! The boys share individual stories of the paranormal! Matt stays quiet for 98% of the episode because he’s lit! Chris compliments a lone female duck on her parenting skills as a single mother bringing up kids in hard times! It’s all here!
Remember when the Stone Temple Pilots were really good? Like Scott Scott Weiland in a top-hat, strung out, singing about vaseline and stuff? Yeah, this episode is about cults. Not The Cult, but cults – small “c”. Not C like, “OMG CHRIS IS ON THIS EPISODE, OMG!!1RAXr” The Order of the Solar Temple were a fucked up cult and we cover everything about them on this episode. It’s funny, it’s dark, it’s sometimes REALLY awkward, but we promise you….It Came From them Wooz!”
“Come and knock on our door… (Come and knock on our door) We’ve been waiting for you…. (We’ve been waiting for you) Where the kisses are hers and hers and his, Three’s company too.” That’s right, sucka MCs, the original Triple Threat is back in the saddle and what better way to celebrate our white-girl reunion than an in-depth look at one of Hollywood’s most enigmatic personas: Keanu Reeves. The boys sit down to discuss his humble beginnings, meteoric rise to super-stardom, nomadic lifestyle and more. We also get a glimpse into a future ICFTW offering: “Dem Thangs with Chris.”
On this week’s episode we look at the life and career of one Justin Long; much heralded Thespian, advocate of the arts and president of the Alien Ant Farm Fanclub. OK, so most of those things (read: all) aren’t true, but we are huge fans of Justin’s and have decided to dedicate an entire episode to his filmography. From ‘Galaxy Quest’ to ‘Ghost Team’, of you’re Long in the tooth, this episode is for you.
As we dive back into the sordid world of true crime, this week we focus on the gruesome murder of carnival barker Tim Mclean at the hands of Vincent Li. Mclean’s murder was infamous not only due to the brutality involved, but also the fallout involving protest groups and the subsequent trial of Li. This is a dark one folks. You’ve been warned.
A casual glance at the album art for Witchfinder General’s seminal first offering, Death Penalty, kind of tells you all you need to know – a comely maiden sprawls suggestively over a crucifix gravestone; her ample bosom exposed, only to have the members of the English doom metal band fawn over her with malicious zeal. Keep in mind, this is 1979 and the religious right is still very much the guardian of censorship and morality. It’s safe to say the band received their fair share of criticism. Rock bands have flirted with Satanism and the occult for decades, and while […]
When we first kicked off International Month on the podcast we visited the Norse stronghold of Norway. We took a look at troll-culture and event touched on the country’s sordid love affair with the bleakest sub-genre of heavy metal, black metal. While church burnings and satanic ritual have been prevailing characteristics associated with the buzz saw guitar riffs and grating vocals of the music itself, there’s also a lot to laugh at here. Like, a butt load. So while I could ramble on and on about murders, death cults and how photos from a murder scene ended up on an […]
A while ago you will have heard me rant on the ‘cast about a delicious morsel of Toronto lore which focused on a series of subterranean tunnels somehow linked to a larger military industrial complex conspiracy. Turns out that tales of this tunnel system and it’s grotesque inhabitants actually surfaced in 1979. Yes, the bastion of truth and transparency, The Toronto Sun, published an article which espoused the testimony of a lovable hobo named “Earnest” who confessed to have a close encounter with a cat-like creature. Torontoist has an interesting article on this story which you should totally check out. […]
Without giving too much away as this week’s podcast hasn’t dropped yet, but we did enter into a bit of a discussion around _9MOTHER9HORSE9EYES recent Reddit exploits. Of course the subreddit community is now awash with speculation and conspiracy theories aplenty, but what could be a cryptic message to our alien overseers is likely a clever cypher enthusiast playing us all. Still – entertaining stuff. Enjoy!
