THE NIGHT CREW Episode 9 - Writer/Director Simon Rumley

Yep. Almost into double digits here on the Night Crew podcast. Next week marks 10 squared. 11 really, if you count episode 0 at the beginning of all...er...this! Next week won't only mark episode 10, the first in what will hopefully be many "deca's" we mark off, it will also signal a little bit of a step up, in the guise of a button fixed to the face of the web page of the very hallowed and venerable FANGORIA magazine. Hopefully that will help kick numbers up a notch. Make no mistake, we want you to please pass this show onto your friends. Soon enough you'll see our ugly mugs in Fangoria too, so neener neener, have fun with that. We are going to start kicking at the industry and fandom alike, with t-shirts and ad's and all that hoo hah rock band like hype. Because that's what this is, more than anything, it's a band of freaks who live to immerse themselves in art of all forms. Our notoriety is your eyeball damage. But! What we take away from you ever being able to look upon any other fleshy thing again, hopefully we give back to you tenfold, with the golden graces of the collective wit and knowledge that is the Night Crew, as they flow from computer speaker to human eardrum?


Eh. Ok. Fair enough I suppose.

Anyway, harumph, moving on...We are very happy to have our regular Twitch contributor Andrew Mack  back from a short hiatus, as well as yet another Twitchey cohort, our Man From Hong Kong, James Marsh, reporting from...well...HONG KONG! The two clowns we call Philip Nutman and Chris Alexander, aka The World's Most Unlikely Cowboy and Boss respectively, chime in with their weekly contributions on westerns and whatever weird shit happens to surface.
We are also extremely happy to finally have on the writer/director of one of the absolutely most amazing films of 2010, the caustic, unflinching, and extremely mature RED, WHITE & BLUE, mister Simon Rumley. We also talk about Simon's earlier work, including another favorite of mine, THE LIVING AND THE DEAD. Mr. Rumley has a very true eye for character, and even when plumbing the absolute lowest depths of the human condition, he still manages to find that place where the truth rests. A serious talent, and a pleasure to sit with for the show.

Also, it's Harryhausen's birthday today (June 29, 2011) The master is 91. RESPECT IT!

Plus, the usual mish mash of weird music, trailers, and in a bid to nab yet another demographic, I air my dirty love laundry. So click in, because we be keepin' it real ma! On The Night Crew.
