Geekery in General 253: The Elder Movie

April 18, 2020 @ 12:42 pm

Back in 1981 rock band KISS released an ambitious album called Music from the Elder. It was intended to serve as the soundtrack for a movie. According to Gene Simmons several actors had already been cast and a script was in the works. All that came to a screeching halt after the album was released. Music from the Elder was panned by many fans and critics alike. Later reviewers have been kinder to Music from the Elder, but it is still considered one of KISS' least successful albums.

In this episode Al discusses the original script for the movie, Seb Hunter's attempt to make an adaptation in 2012, and his ideas for how he would write a movie that would more closely follow the music on the album. A lot of the information for this episode comes from Odyssey: The definitive examination of "Music From The Elder," KISS' cult-classic concept album by Tim McPhate and Julian Gill. Its an interesting book, and if you are a fan of this album I highly recommend it.

This episode is a companion piece to Episode 129 of Musically Challenged. In that episode Al and Chad discuss the story behind the album as well as the music itself. You might want to listen to that episode first. You can listen to this episode here:https://eclecticmediaproject.podbean.com/e/musically-challenged-episode-129-music-from-the-elder/

Want to learn more about The Hero's Journey? Al covered it in episode 97 of Geekery in General. You can listen to it here: https://poigamestudio.podbean.com/e/episode-97-the-heros-journey/

If Gene Simmons or any movie company would like to contact me to write a script for a movie based on The Elder they (and anyone else) can contact me at poigamestudio@gmail.com

Much like Axl Rose this episode is late and we apologize for that.

Musically Challenged - Episode 84 - You Songs

September 6, 2018 @ 6:00 am

The boys bring you this special episode all about YOU. That's right, they picked songs just for YOU. They wanted to talk to you about these special songs. You know the songs about YOU! Think I have said YOU enough? The boys look at songs with the word you in the title. They explain just how specific it needed to be to make the cut...which narrowed their choices down to around 4,000 songs. Get comfy in the big couch and see if you are musically challenged too.

Musically Challenged - Episode 83 - Yellow/Green Songs

August 30, 2018 @ 6:00 am

Two boys from Wisconsin doing a Green and Yellow episode and neither one of the two did a Packers song?!?! Who said these two could have their own podcast? Obviously, someone who didn't know they would do such a thing! Ok, that aside they do still manage to bring you a fun filled episode, even if a bit on the short side. They streamlined this episode in order to bring you more music. Yeah that's why. So grab your colored pencils (especially the green and yellow ones) and see if you are musically challenged too.

August 23, 2018 @ 6:00 am

What's your favorite color? Grab your box of crayolas and check it out. We at Musically Challenged love to color and one of our favorite colors is BLUE.
