Enter the Podcast: Loren Avedon and the GGtMC

So, I realize it’s been a while. I haven’t left any voicemails about Bolo Yeung throwing his jacket on the floor. I’ve failed to “Like” your awesome Facebook pictures of Don "The Dragon" Wilson in different silk shirts. I haven’t put on a pair of Zubaz pants in what seems like months. I’m not even sure they fit anymore.

But I’m here now, and I’ve got apologetic flowers in one hand and a three-hour podcast in the other. Approximately 33% is dedicated to The King of the Kickboxers, and 66% is comprised of a truly fantastic interview with screen legend Loren Avedon. It’s my way of saying thanks for hanging in there.

I was lucky enough to hook up with Will and Sam from The Gentlemen’s Guide to Midnite Cinema for Episode 233 and it’s a beast. We do a sprawling review of the aforementioned 1990 Lucas Lowe film, and have a great discussion with its star. If words spelled in all-caps for emphasis still mean something to you, DO NOT MISS this episode.

On the Fist of B-List front, we’ve got all sorts of things in store for the summer. PM Entertainment will be well-represented, the floating virtual reality head of Jalal Merhi is booked for an appearance, and we’ll take another hard look at martial arts actors going Hollywood.

More to come...

  1. Looking forward to listening to the podcast!

    Oh wait, what I meant to say was: LOOKING FORWARD TO LISTENING TO THE PODCAST! (all caps FTW)

  2. @EFC - As far as visitors to this here blog, you are a straight OG. It's great to know that you're still reading and listening. Thanks so much!

    What a wild experience though. I've been listening to that podcast forever and a day, so it was a true privilege to talk about one of my favorite genre films with those guys. I realize my capacity as a "tastemaker" is probably limited, but if you like what I do here, I implore everyone to listen to them on the regular.

    On top of that, the universe was all, "hey, as a bonus, how would you like to help interview one of your favorite martial arts actors of all time?" It was such a stroke of luck to get to chat with Loren for a web interview last year. To then go one step beyond, in the live environment, though? If I never do anything else in my crazy Internet existence, I will always be able to hang my hat (or Zubaz) on this piece of work.

    1. From one OG to another, thanks!

      Finally got to listen to the interview. Really awesome stuff there!

      Avedon came off as a really nice guy with a good head on his shoulders. Can't say I was too surprised by the Trimble anecdote, though (he just looks like that kind of guy). Cool to know that guys like Billy Blanks are good dudes.

      Fave story was probably the one in that Patpong club; had that been one of his movies, he and his buddies would've handed those guys their asses without breaking a sweat. But in real life, you pay that 800 baht and get the hell out of there.

      Anyway, great job on the interview Karl! It was a fun listen, with the extra bonus of being able to put a voice to your words!
