Episode 002: Hey lookee. It’s the first edition of our podcast. Still ironing out some kinks, but presented here is our second show (recorded November 15) in which Mac and David talk about some upcoming movies, the writers’ strike and a local reality TV producer calls in.

More Good News: Mascot Wedding (well, Master Pancake FEATURING Mascot Wedding) takes on Road House!

November is shaping up to be a very good month for us at Mascot Wedding headquarters. In addition to the radio show (starting November 8, plan your listening parties accordingly), we’ve also just been asked to join forces with Master Pancake Theater for another month of shows. The even better news is, this time you won’t have to politely smile through Conan the Barbarian. This time we’re pitching in for the mother of all “these jokes write themselves” movies: Road House! That’s right, Patrick Swayze’s finest hour (depressing as that may be) is being put in front of the Master Pancake firing squad all November at (wait for it…) the new Alamo Downtown at The Ritz! That means not only will you get to hear us completely fall over ourselves trying to deliver jokes as fast as they come to mind (come on, have you seen the movie??), you’ll get to see it in the brand new, peeing my pants with anticipation, Drafthouse on 6th Street.* Fist pump!

Master Pancake + Mascot Wedding = Conan the Barbarian

No, that’s not a math equation made up entirely of Japanese band names. Mascot Wedding’s own Mac Blake and David Jara will be teaming with the movie heckling comedy phenomenon Master Pancake Theater (John Erler and Joe Parsons) to skewer Conan the Barbarian.

The first show is this Wednesday, July 11th at the South Lamar Drafthouse. This is the first time Master Pancake has stepped to the mic as a foursome so you’re going to want to get front row seats to the clusterfuck. Here’s the official Drafthouse thingee:

MASTER PANCAKE THEATER returns to the Alamo screens this month with perhaps the ultimate summer movie of all time – CONAN THE BARBARIAN. Now, I know, CONAN might not have as many explosions as other movies. And there aren’t giant robots, either (but can you imagine how awesome it would be if Conan did fight a Transformer?). I stand by the claim of CONAN as an ultimate movie of the summer, though, because no one in the movie bothers with those pesky “shirts” that we’re all burdened with whenever we aren’t at Barton Springs.

Of course, a lack of clothing isn’t the only requirement when you’re cooking up an ultimate summer movie; you also need plenty of quotable lines. And 25 years ago, Arnold Schwarzenegger said one of the greatest lines of movie history:

“Top 3 things in life: To crush your enemies, to see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentations of their women.”

Ahhhh. What more can you want? Oh! How about if this month’s rotating cast member to join John and Joe was actually TWO cast members? And what if they’re Mac Blake and David Jara, all around funnymen and award-winning filmmaker duo responsible for the number one BLANKS ON A BLANK film, RACCOONS ON A SPACE SHUTTLE?

MASTER PANCAKE will be rotating between the Village and South Lamar every Wednesday during the interim while we await the construction to finish at the Ritz, starting July 11. Don’t miss it!

So come on out and laff along as we watch the future governor of California punch a camel, fight hippies, and bed every lady in a three mile radius. See ya there chochachos.

Alamo South Lamar: Wednesday, July 11th 9:45 and Wednesday, July 25th 9:45

Alamo Village: Wednesday, July 18th 9:45 and Wednesday, August 1st 9:45
