Bish’s Beat: A Conversation with author Paul Bishop

Welcome folks to another episode of the MMC. This week, we were very fortunate to be joined by legendary LAPD Detective turned author - Paul Bishop.
It's information overload on this one, as Paul is kind enough to share some of his stories, of his time in the LAPD, along with his thoughts on the O.J Simpson case, and the subsequent trial. He also regales us with his first hand account, of his time on the frontline during the L.A riots of 1992.
But that's not all, as we said, he is also an author, and a prolific one at that. He discusses his books with us (and his upcoming new one LIE CATCHERS) 
BUT, that's still not all, we also discuss the differences of portrayals of Police Officers in Hollywood, on the big and small screen, compared to that of real life.
It all makes for a fascinating listen, we cannot thank Paul enough for joining us, and look forward to having him back again, with us, in the near future.
Enjoy.
You can find Paul, and his works in the links below.

The MMC Goes to the Drive-In

drive-in2.jpg

Tickets please !!! Got anybody in the trunk? Yes? Go on get outta here. Hey all, this week, we trek into drive-in territory, and look at a couple of AIP flicks from the 50's - INVASION OF THE SAUCERMEN plus HOW TO MAKE A MONSTER.
We talk about the benefit, sometimes, of a shorter leaner film, compared to a bloated modern day Hollywood feature. We also discuss the crude special effects of Hollywood back in the 50's, and, the films at hand of course.
So ease the seat back, stock up at the concession stand, and enjoy.
See you all next week.
NOTE: The sound on this episode is replicated to sound like it was broadcast out of a drive-in car speaker, there is nothing wrong with your sound system. We will return to normal sound next week.

Oi,  Shine up your Doc Martens, pop on your braces and and listen in to Der Fools as we discuss the little known Australian Nazi skinhead flick ROMPER STOMPER.

Stuart clues you all in on Melbourne in the early 90's, and how this film was made in the area he worked in at the time. 

Also discussed is the real life parallels drawn between this film, and the Cronulla Riots in Sydney in 2005. There is an excellent expose on those riots mentioned in the show, you can watch that right here.


Listen on, and enjoy, oh also - NAZI PUNKS FUCK OFF

See you all next week.

This week's episode, we look at the documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley's Island of Dr. Moreau.
And doomed it was, we look at this insanely troubled shoot, the systematic firing of writer & director Richard Stanley, and the infamy this film finally attained, due to it's chaotic production.
Come join us, and listen as we discuss the documentary, on a film that could have been great.... but sadly, wasn't.
See you all next week
