A few years ago, The Artist won Best Picture at the Academy awards. To Mark it was for no good reason. The 2018 Oscars just happened and the show was the lowest rated in history. Was it too much focus on women? Was it Jimmy Kimmel? Was it the need for the Hollywood elite to hold on to tradition too much?
All of these things are discussed between Jason Kull, Gary Weed and Mark Bland on this episode of the Q. Plus, are we on the edge of another financial crisis....someone whose very rich and well known thinks so. The guys discuss this and a bevy of other topics including Mark's covering of the MVC Tournament (aka Arch Madness) and some things he took away from it.
Halloween is just around the corner and Jason Kull joins Mark to discuss some of the greatest horror films of all times. The guys read through a list of the greatest horror movies you should know about and add in those films they think you should see.
Plus, Trump is on a tear again and it's discussed about his need to repeal and replace healthcare. Signing executive orders just like Obama did (and all the presidents before him), Trump takes away the ability to have pre-existing conditions guarded from disclosure while signing up. So having one means that they can drop you from coverage or deny you coverage at a new company. It's a dagger into the heart of many and the guys discuss it in glorious detail and explain how we got to this problem in our country.
Finally, Taxes are a hot issue and should we pay them? Are they too high? Mark and Jason discuss why we have them and how people should look at taxing in 2017.
Oh the annual Halloween show is upon us and even though this year didn't go specifically as planned, there is still a fantastic show (with OVERTIME) for you to sink your teeth into!
The show starts with Janice Tremeear, the author of the Haunted Route 66 books to discuss her favorite stories and how she entered into the world of writing about spirits and ghosts. Janice tells that her favorite story isn't even one she's written in any books. So of course that puts Producer Bobby on edge immediately.
From there, the team jumps in discussing their Ghost stories. Producer Bobby discusses an eerie story that happens every year on a family members death date. Dan Walsh imparts a tale about the TV in his bedroom and a very interesting figure that appears since he was a kid. And Mark throws down two stories. One about the caverns of the Lemp Brewery and a top hatted man that him and a friend encountered one night. As well as a story about a shotgun house in South City that sits in the shadow of the Alexian Brothers old hospital (where the EXORCIST was based).
Then on with some show business as the talk of Child Molester dating Mama June from Honey Boo Boo grabs the attention of the show and Mark makes a heartfelt plea to not elect any Tea Party candidates on the November 4th elections. Finally they wrap up discussing their favorite horror movies and a little overtime with a "pleasure bullet" that you don't want to miss. All this and much more on the HALLOWEEN 2014 episode of The Q....Real Radio, Real Honest!
