Exploding Head Movies Episode July 8, 2013

XHM #174 - "Treacherous kung-fu infects the airwaves" (2013 July 08)

7:00am - 9:04am

In honour of the martial artist Jim "Dragon" Kelly (1946-2013), we profile two scores that are longtime classics in my books: Lalo Schifrin's Enter the Dragon and Dennis Coffey & Luchi de Jesus with Black Belt Jones. A large house fly visits. So many things went wrong this episode, though it turned out sounding mostly OK. The iPad that usually houses the background songs went loco this episode for some reason, so there was some scrambling on my part to figure out substitutions through other means amidst other things. Then one of the CD players became possessed. This could've gone far better, so I blame the people trying to shut down Pop's Dojo! Too much heat and excitement.

And the fly left sometime during the middle of the show -- good call on his part.
