This week, Dan & Manny put 5 Halloween music videos to the ULTIMATE TEST on their 2nd Spooky Season episode. They dig unnecessarily deep into This Is Halloween, Ghostbusters, Somebody's Watching Me, The Monster Mash,ThrillerThis episode starts out in a sane place, but these songs slowly eat away at any sense that Manny & Dan had left this day. They try to avoid the entire episode at the start, but quickly get into what it would be like to play This Is Halloween at a party, the genius of Ray Parker Jr., and what the f*** is Disney up to with these creepy Halloween Music Mashup videos?

This week, Dan & Manny welcome their second guest, longtime friend, and killer musician Steve Herrera on their first Spooky Season episode to put the 1988 "horror" movie Killer Klowns From Outer Space to the ULTIMATE TEST! This episode has everything, minus any sort of logic, but what do expect when you're talking about a horror film with a soft-core porn plotline. Dan, Manny, and Steve attempt to make sense of the worst character names of all time, why no one will just leave this town, and what's with the drugstore owner!? RUN THE F*** OUT OF THERE! (You'll see). 

Oh, and if you think they didn't bring up Matt Antoniou, you're wrong. Read the rest of this entry »
