This 80s cult classic takes on more than just consumerism. Join us for a discussion on Ronald Reagan, dieting fads, and some of the ways Cohen's classic is more politically relevant now than at the time of its release. The Stuff might be a B-movie to studios, but it's an A in our hearts. So grab your favorite ice cream, frozen yogurt, or shaving cream, and find out what this ode to The Blob has in common with The Godfather!

Some scientists claim that if a meteorite fragment entered the earth's atmosphere with an explosive impact on the surface, possible pathogen contamination could spread “hundreds of trillions of infective viral particles." Curiously, this may have occurred in China about 2 months before the world knew of COVID-19. Perhaps it's a kind of Andromeda Strain evolution process whereby an alien organism is proliferating within the human host. We are now seeing a significant increase in fungal infections throughout the Earth's inhabitance. Can any of these so-called physical breakdowns be attributed to space microbes or space jelly?

This week we are talking about "Halloween: Resurrection" which is the perfect way to celebrate Halloween, even though it's not the best installment. This movie had a lot to discuss and we brought back Nick Sbordone to help us out. We discussed the reality theme used in the movie, the quick kills, Dangertainment, Henry Rowengartner, Tyra Banks, and more. Happy Halloween The next sequel that will be discussed is Freddy's Dead The Final Friday, not the best Freddy, BUT it did give us a chance to chat with SFX artist Jeffrey Farley. Jeff started his SFX at a young age and then went on to work on The Blob, Freddy's Dead, Stay Tuned, Full Moon movies, and more. Jeff was a great guy who loves what he does and knew he wanted to do this forever.

The writer Meg Shields (Film School Rejects) returns to the show for a look at one of the highlights of Criterion Channel's lineup of 80s Horror, Chuck Russell's 1988 remake of the fifties cult classic The Blob. Not as celebrated as two other eighties Body Horror remakes of fifties sci-fi (Carpenter's The Thing and Cronenberg's The Fly), The Blob is ripe for rediscovery with it's incredible use of practical special effects and miniatures to tell the tale of a goopy pink organism that terrorizes a small ski town in California which is revealed not to be an alien creature but in fact a secret biological weapon on the loose when government agents seize control of the area in an attempt to contain it. But a pair of plucky local teens (Shawnee Smith and Kevin Dillon) might be mankind's only hope for survival. The Blob succeeds thanks to a smart screenplay by Chuck Russell and Frank Darabont that leans into the ridiculousness of the premise while showing a gleeful disregard for genre expectations throughout. A box office flop at the time thanks to a bad marketing campaign, sometimes movies like The Blob take a long time to find an audience. Plus: Meg recommends some other highlights of Criterion's well-chosen lineup of eighties horror offerings.

Every summer, millions of moon jellyfish invade small bays in Puget Sound, near Seattle. Called “smacks,” the groups can grow large enough to be visible from the air. And they appear to “smack” their lips—at least figuratively—at the tasty treats they find there. In fact, the jellyfish may be gobbling so many of them that they don't leave many for young salmon or other fish. A moon jellyfish consists of a transparent “bell” up to a foot or so across, with a pattern that looks like a four-leaf clover at its middle. Moon jellies have become much more common in Puget Sound in recent years thanks to warming waters. A marine heatwave known as “the Blob” led to a big jump in the number of jellyfish, and the numbers have stayed high. Scientists have studied the impact of that jump over the last few years. In 2019, '20, and '21, they surveyed the waters in and around jellyfish smacks. They counted the number of jellyfish and gathered water samples. They compared the number of small organisms inside the jellyfish groups to the area outside. And they found that the population of copepods—shelled creatures that are a popular food for many marine organisms—were almost 75 percent lower inside the smacks. And the researchers reported similar results in tests in the lab. That could be depriving other marine creatures of their treats—especially juvenile salmon, herring, and other fish. So, the invasions of moon jellies could be changing the ecosystem in Puget Sound.

Now that we've got a solid foundation under us, let's add on the other layers of classroom management so that our teacher sunflower can sink its roots deep down and thrive.It all started with last episode's bedrock principles. Now, we're going to talk about three other layers of classroom management that will lead to a joyful, efficient, wonderful place for our students, and ourselves, to thrive.The key is to choose one layer at a time to focus on. Don't get overwhelmed by trying to tackle them all at once. Pick the one that needs the most work and start there. You can do it!Links in today's episode:Today's blog post (with illustration of Layers of Joyful Management Framework)Last week's blog postJoyful Teacher Academy waitlist

Listen as Johnny Has the Keys drives down memory lane, dodging meteors that may contain icky life-forms that want nothing more than to devour us and our loved ones. The post Ep. 05-09: The Blob (1958 & 1988) first appeared on JOHNNY HAS THE KEYS.
Halloween is upon us. Go buy every single pumpkin spice item you can find, and don't forget the Count Chocula! Oh, and the October ritual is back! It's time for the 18th Annual A-Z of Horror Festival!Part one consists of entries A-H. Gear up for a wild Mexican exploitation ride, with enough evil to set your Satan detector into PANIC mode! Curse the day you meet Alucarda (1977)! A malevolent mound of muck begins devouring everything in a small mountain town, thanks to some updated 80s special effects. Is it an alien entity, or government conspiracy? One thing is for sure, it's The Blob (1988)! If you are running a struggling funeral parlor, killing off local townspeople may seem like a logical solution. But you have to make sure that you actually kill them! Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff certainly have their problems offing Basil Rathbone in The Comedy of Terrors (1963). Hammer makes an attempt to appeal to groovy 70s kids, by bringing the classic Dracula versus Van Helsing feud out of their regular gothic trappings, and into the modern age. Dracula A.D. 1972 (1972) is such a giggle, man! Doris Wishman filmed this next one during her comeback run at age 89, in 2002. That's probably the most interesting thing about Each Time I Kill (2007), other than John Waters making a cameo appearance! Geena Davis begins to worry about Jeff Goldblum, as he is not quite himself after what seemed like a successful teleportation attempt using his recent invention. Unfortunately, he didn't anticipate what would happen should an uninvited guest join him in the telepod. Things get buggy in David Cronenberg's full-on body horror version of The Fly (1986)! Brad Dourif and James Earl Jones try to outdo each other, spinning spooky yarns around the campfire, in the western-themed horror anthology, Grim Prairie Tales (1990). And an accident strands a family, putting them in a battle for their lives against a desert clan who will eat any kind of meat that they can get their hands on! It's Wes Craven's classic, The Hills Have Eyes (1977)!

Ever feel like the Washington crowd doesn't talk your language when it comes to how the government solves its problems overseas? After 20 years of war, it seems Americans are much more circumspect about war powers, sending weapons to dictators, the US military footprint in Asia, even the current war in Ukraine, according to a new poll by the Eurasia Group Foundation. Senior researcher and podcast producer Caroline Gray joins us to break down the results, which show younger voters are perhaps the most resistant to the status quo of all. In the first segment, Dan and Kelley talk about the Biden Administration's latest efforts in cajoling the Pacific Island countries into its anti-China web.
