Empire State (2013) – Filmsack Show Notes

Empire State 2013

INTRO

Oh hi,

This week on Filmsack we put on our bullet proof vests, made for our hearts and not for our scrotes …remember… be careful out there scrotes.., and drive our mob operated armored car money truck right back to the REALLY real world of the early 1980s New York. Where we are short on good paying jobs and long on crime, mouthy coke friends, young Giuliani’s and cops whose heads are shaped like thumbs. Sorry Rock. Maybe if you grew some hair on top…oh god no…stick with the thumb look…it’s working for you.

Anywho, grab the other end of this naked statue for my mom and help me load it into the trunk of my Smokey and the Bandit Trans-Am. Careful with the berries…that’s my “wine drunk in the alley” mom’s favorite part! Hey, do you have to pee? I know a great place to pee. It’s real busy though..there is always somebody in there…I mean like we are always waiting on somebody to come out. It used to be even more crowded before my dad got fired from his tenured job as the crime boss bathroom upkeep man. Ahh..the salad days.

This movie was like Robin Hood, if Friar Tuck couldn’t keep his coked up mouth shut and Maid Marian served pie down at the local diner and The Sherriff of Nottingham had a head shaped like a thumb. I’m sorry Rock!

Randy, I said thank you for saving my life right? Alright, good.
