This time around on the Your Stupid Minds podcast we present Episode 0: the secret lost podcast pilot. We originally recorded Lucky Number Slevin as our first episode back in February 2012, but ended up recording a WHOPPING 35 minutes instead of the 20 we were originally going for, so we shelved this one for a rainy day.
One of our most loathed movies, Lucky Number Slevin tells the needlessly complex and Tarantino-esque story of Slevin Kelevra (Josh Hartnett), a bath-toweled man with an impossible no-way name who navigates the machinations of two themed mobs, one led by The Boss (Morgan Freeman), the other by The Rabbi (Ben Kingsley). Slevin smugs his way through the misadventures, along the way courted by Manic Pixie Dream Girl Lindsey (Lucy Liu), and his own elaborate ulterior motive. Bruce Willis’s hairpiece also makes an appearance.
- You'll notice a bit of a tonal difference between this episode and more recent ones. We originally planned to be more conversational and analytical before ultimately opting to tell more jokes about duck titties and dogs playing banjos.
- There's also a bit more initial exposition about why we started the podcast and our background in bad movies. We may be a little overly-explanatory but we wanted to make sure people knew what a podcast was and how movies exist.
- We really hope someone will write a fanfiction for The Warriors explaining the rift in the Softball Furies.
