Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior

INTRO

Oh hi,

Hey guys, I’m calling from the post-a-poc-uhh-lip-tic future where gas is so scarce that in order to survive I have dyed my hair blonde and traded in my blue jeans and a t-shirt, which apparently no longer exist, for leather… and not a whole lot of it I might add…oh hi nipples…I guess I shouldn’t complain though. I think it was my ass-less chaps and flat boyish butt that first caught the eye of the lead mohawk wearing biker warrior that am currently riding with.

Anywho, I’m just standing here in the wasteland looking off into the sky while the gang is attacking a high school auto-shop class that is holed up at an old oil complex of some sort. I try not to get too involved in my boyfriend’s business. He has a complicated relationship with his boss who is prone to making long speeches and getting my boyfriend and the gang all riled and you know that always ends with a round of nap inducing headlocks from the boss.. Mr. Mungus.

ok, well I better get back to avoiding eye contact and staring off into the sky….huh…that’s a funny looking frisbee….oh look it’s coming back…. aaaaand now it is buried into my skull. Randy, carry me through the gates of Valhalla. Thanks dude. now stop looking at my butt.

SHOW NOTES

  • This movie really is The Road Warrior man… this ain’t Mad Max 2… cause nobody saw that first one…c’mon!
  • My life fades, the vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos, ruined dreams, this wasted land. But most of all, I remember the road warrior, the man we called Max. To understand who he was we have to go back to the other time. When the world was powered by the black fuel, and the desert sprouted great cities of pipe and steel. Gone now, swept away. For reasons long forgotten two mighty warrior tribes went to war and touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel they were nothing. They’d built a house of straw. The thundering machines sputtered and stopped. Their leaders talked and talked and talked, but nothing could stem the avalanche. Their world crumbled. Cities exploded. A whirlwind of looting, a firestorm of fear. Men began to feed on men. On the roads it was a white-line nightmare. Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice. And in this maelstrom of decay, ordinary men were battered and smashed. Men like Max, the warrior Max. In the roar of an engine, he lost everything, and became a shell of a man. A burnt-out, desolate man. A man haunted by the demons of his past. A man who wandered out into the wasteland. And it was here, in this blighted place, that he learned to live again.
