Greetings! It’s Adam Frazier aka FamousMonster and it’s time for another transmission from Skull-Face Island. As always I’m joined by former FREE SAFETY for your GOTHAM ROGUES, David Allen! And last week’s co-host, this week’s producer, and next week’s messiah… Tim Grant.
Today on the Show: We talk about Craig Zobel’s latest film, Compliance, as well as William Friedkin’s Killer Joe, starring Matthew McConaughey. We’ll also find out just where in the HELL David was last week and flip the switch on the Geek-O-Matic News Machine. This week’s discussions include Y: The Last Man, Viggo Mortensen as Dr. Strange and all kinds of fun stuff!
Also, we’ll play The Sequel Game – and if we sound sleepy and drunk that’s because we are. Tim bartered two seasons of Felicity to the natives for some 217-proof Skull-Face Fire Water that had us all experiencing hallucinations of polar bears and smoke monsters.
If you missed our previous transmissions, let me explain how this works. In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 experienced a mysterious, magnetic anomaly somewhere over the South Pacific. Engines failed, pilots cursed and prayed to their Gods, and three boys (that’s us!) washed ashore on Skull-Face Island, which of course is an ISLAND in the SHAPE of a SKULL! How cool is that!?
After exploring the dark interior of the island with machetes and bullwhips, we found an old communications array. Here’s the weird thing, it still works. Not only does it work, this thing is like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Video on Demand, and Apple TV combined – it’s got all the latest movies and television shows. We haven’t even bothered sending out a distress signal yet because we’re re-watching all 65 episodes of ABC’s Dinosaurs right now…

Be sure to use the #SkullFaceIsland hashtag on Twitter and tell us what you think — and pitch your own nonsensical, yet sadly possible, sequels!
Also, we ran a little long this week at 49 minutes (compared to the typical 38 minutes) – what do you guys think? Do you prefer a condensed, to-the-point show, or would you like each episode to be longer? Thoughts?
