Mediatrocities #6: Brian Chankin of Odd Obsession Movies; Tarté’s Partay; Special Musical Guest: Nonpronto

Mediatrocities ETWelcome to Mediatrocities #6! This month’s podcast features Chicago’s own Brian Chankin, owner of Odd Obsession Movies, who talks with Legendary Lew about his store, the state of movie rentals, and why Netflix has it wrong.

Then, film auteurd Ernie Tarté makes his way to a Hollywood party held in honor of Steven Spielberg at the Dolly Dentura mansion. Tarté has recently begun a feud with the Oscar-winning director over the disputed ownership of the latest production of “Napoleon,” the famed project abandoned by Stanley Kubrick.

The featured musical guest this month is the fantastic jazz trio Nonpronto, comprised of Josh Murtha (bass), Luke Angle (drums) and Dan Collins (piano/vocals).  The opening/closing tune is “Skeletons” and the featured number is “Sweet Times Run.”

Fatback Charlie’s Fights Against Hunger with its New Promotions

fatbackcharliecartoonFatback Charlie’s Cardiac Arrestaurant takes hunger seriously. Their latest commercial expresses the concern over the enormous amount of food waste the U.S. produces every year.

While there, you’ll be forced to enjoy patented “Sowch!” Sandwich, one full-sized rotisserie sow parked between two huge seeded buns. Each Sowch! Sandwich is served to your table from a flatbed truck (their servers are also licensed flatbed truck operators).

For just $2 extra, you can also have the signature Flankenstein Monster, an entire side of beef rubbed and grilled to perfection. Our foodie columnist attended Fatback’s recently, arriving in one taxi and leaving in three.
