A few months ago Jim had an idea. What if we did a show where we not only did zero preparation, but had no idea what the show would be about until we were recording it? Would it work? Would it fail spectacularly? How could we actually do it?
With the help of electronic-mail and occasional Thug and Midnight Movie Cowboy Hunter Duesing we figured out how.
We opened the e-mail address email@example.com and gave the password to Hunter. We never opened it, we never checked it, we don't even know if he changed the password. He collected questions until he had what he thought was a good amount for a show, recorded each of them, and sent the audio to us.
What resulted was a show where the hosts went in blind and had to rely on the quickness of their wits to try and create a decent episode. We think we succeeded.
Hopefully, you agree.
As usual the Thug hotlines are both still open and awaiting your phone calls, if you live in the US call 512-666-RANT and leave a message about your most memorably awful movie theater experience. If you don't live in the US and want to avoid costly international charges, just Skype us at The_Film_Thugs. You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com to be a part of the next run at this show. We are also on Twitter @TheFilmThugs, on Vine @TheFilmThugs, and on Facebook. Reach out, connect with us, and become part of the Film Thug family.
Until next time...
