Grind-Fu Cinema presents

STRANGE BREW

and 

HEAVY METAL

Saturday, September 30th @7:00 p.m.
Wiecking 220 Auditorium
Minnesota State University, Mankato

FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE! FREE!

The September Grind-Fu Cinema is going to be a blast of Great White North amazingness!  Join us on Saturday, September 30th for a double feature that's up to its neck in SCTV talent.  The first film is the most obvious, as it features characters developed for that show, but the connection on the second film may be a little less obvious.  Let's get into it...


Strange Brew (1983)
Directed by Dave Thomas and Rick Moranis

It's kind of strange that the breakout characters on a TV show filled with amazing comedians would be a couple of every day hosers that love beer and celebrate Canada, but that's exactly what happened.  Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas initially created the characters of Bob and Doug McKenzie to fill show space and mock regulations that demanded a certain percentage of Canadian programming be devoted to Canadian content.  Their mostly improvised Great White North skits both celebrated and lampooned Canadian culture, and over time they became a big hit with viewers.  NBC demanded that more of them be made for the U.S. broadcasts of SCTV, and the popularity spawned a hit comedy album.  It also resulted in the only major motion picture based on SCTV characters.



Strange Brew follows Bob and Doug McKenzie on their quest to get free beer by claiming there was a mouse in their bottle of Elsinor beer.  They end up getting jobs inspecting beer at the brewery, but bumble their way into the middle of a massive conspiracy involving beer and world domination.  Also, it's loosely based on Hamlet.  We could tell you more, but it'd just come off as absurd, and we wouldn't want that to happen.  Co-starring with Moranis and Thomas, who reprise their roles as Bob and Doug, is genuine acting legend Max Von Sydow as the villain.

FUN KATO AREA FACT:  In 1995 Max Von Sydow was an artist in residence at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter.  Despite the fact that students kept asking him about the film, Von Sydow claimed he didn't remember doing it.

Our second film of the evening will be...


Heavy Metal (1981)
Directed by Gerald Potterton

This INSANE Canadian/American animated anthology film is based on the INSANE international magazine Heavy Metal.  The magazine itself is a collection of illustrated stories with graphic violence and sex, which basically means it would make the most amazing animated film ever.  Maybe not ever, but the final film became a box office smash, and it became a cult classic.  And yes, it's chock full of graphic sex and violence.  THIS ONE IS NOT FOR THE KIDS!

Heavy Metal was animated using the Rotoscope process.  This means they shoot film and then draw animation over it.  The end result gives the on screen characters a realistic presence, which can be kind of surreal, especially with a crazy film like Heavy Metal.  The stories are a real trip, too.  "A step beyond Science Fiction", as the poster says.  Futuristic, fantastic, gory, bleak, hilarious... these are all words that successfully describe this film.  Also, the soundtrack is amazing.

THE SCTV CONNECTION:  The voice casting draws heavily from SCTV!  John Candy, Joe Flaherty, Eugene Levy, and Harold Ramis are featured throughout the film.



HEAVY METAL IS NOT FOR KIDS!
YES, IT IS ANIMATED, BUT IT IS
DEFINITELY NOT FOR KIDS!

See both of these amazing movies FOR FREE!  Bring your friends, bring sodas, and dress in layers (because the air conditioning can be aggressive) and settle in for a really fun time.  Questions?  Drop us an e-mail at shufflefunction@hotmail.com

I'm the new boy in town!  Where can I go?

A LEGENDARY THANK YOU TO OUR KMSU RADIO HEROES!


     What a weekend, right?! I am still in recovery mode. I want to thank all of you who made it out to the 70th Birthday Bash for The Legendary Stardust Cowboy. The Altamont Boys wanted us to be sure to pass along all kinds of kudos for the extraordinary party and to thank you all for your enthusiastic love of The Ledge. As the Ledge's drummer Joey put it, "This was the best birthday party he'd had since puberty"! The Spectors, Ledge and The Altamont Boys all told us they had an amazing time, and that was because of you KMSU Radio Heroes. Thank you for letting The Ledge know how much you love his music. Thanks for dancing and screaming at the tops of your lungs. Thanks for taking selfies with The Ledge and getting autographs. Thanks for wearing birthday party hats and singing along to the songs. You are all the best, and The Ledge felt the love. This morning he called and told me that he missed Minnesota so much that he cried all the way home to San Jose.

     Thank you Radio Heroes!

GET SWEET VINYL FROM KMSU HOSTS!


via GIPHY

OLD TOWN RECORD FAIR
at Midtown Tavern
524 N Riverfront Drive, Mankato

Saturday, September 23rd
ten a.m. to four p.m.

Do you have too many records?  If you answered yes, then you would be wrong.  YOU CAN NEVER HAVE ENOUGH RECORDS.  You know who has a lot of records?  The DJs at KMSU, and there will be several of them selling some of their sweet vinyl at the Old Town Record Fair.  They gotta thin out their collections to make room for new stuff, so they'll be setting up shop on Saturday, September 23rd at Midtown Tavern to do just that.  There's gonna be LOADS of vinyl offered up by folks like:

  • Dave from Free Form Freakout
  • Jameson from Variety Pack
  • Dr. Psychoacoustics from The Psychoacoustics Hour
  • Tim and Shelley from Shuffle Function
  • HOST from Meow Meow With Occasional Music
  • KMSU supporters with vinyl to spare

You'll find vinyl, CDs, cassettes, books, magazines... the full spectrum of the nerd experience will be available.There will also be DJs throughout the day to provide the soundtrack to your digging.  Will a six hour window of vinyl browsing be enough?  Do you know when to stop?  The answers to these questions will be revealed at the Old Town Record Fair on September 23rd.  Visit the Facebook event page for more information.

LEDGE TURNS 70 ON TUESDAY! SEND HIM A BIRTHDAY CARD!

Poster designed by Jason Knudson

THE  LEGENDARY  STARDUST  COWBOY TURNS  70  ON  SEPTEMBER  5th!

Every year we throw a card shower for the Legendary Stardust Cowboy's birthday!  We love him and he's been a great friend to Shuffle Function and KMSU for well over a decade.  He's a guy that has wanted to entertain people his entire life, and we want to make sure that he knows we appreciate him! This year it's an even bigger deal because KMSU is throwing The Ledge a big 70th birthday bash, and he's coming to town to perform!  What's that?  You don't know what we're talking about? Well here it is...

KMSU presents

THE LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY
with THE ALTAMONT BOYS!

with special guests
THE SPECTORS!

Saturday, September 16th @ 8:00 p.m.
Hooligan's Bar & Grill
1400 Madison Avenue
Mankato, Minnesota

FREE ADMISSION!

This is going to be the biggest and best birthday card shower yet!  Ledge is coming to town, and you can let him know that you can't wait to see him!  PLUS, he's turning 70!  The big seven-oh! Everything about this is monumental.  Take a moment and drop him a line so he has a great birthday. Fan letters mean the world to him, and your birthday wishes will make his day, as well as get him psyched for the big birthday show in September.

Grab a birthday card from your secret stash, get everyone you know on earth to sign it, and mail it off to the address we're about to share with you. Are you artsy fartsy?  Feel free to make a card for the Ledge. He likes horses, space, and the weather. Follow that DIY feeling and personalize your birthday greetings.  He also loves to get cards from children, and his fan club will often post pictures them on their Facebook page.


Please share this post on your Facebook page or pass it along to other music geeks in your life. The more cards that arrive in The Legendary Stardust's Cowboy's mailbox the better. Hearing from his fans always makes him happy.


In case you can't read the address above (on an actual plate that he threw into the crowd when he rocked Mankato in 2010), here it is in big text:

NORMAN CARL ODAM
LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY
P.O. BOX 730742
SAN JOSE, CA  95173


Don't forget to put stars all over the envelope! If you are feeling adventurous, feel free to include a self addressed stamped envelope with your card. We can't promise that you will receive anything in return, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Thanks Music Geeks!  Your cards mean a lot, and they're the perfect way to gear up for Ledge's Mankato appearance in September!  Let's make The Ledge's 70th Birthday a day he will remember forever!
