THEY LIVE JOHN CARPENTER 1988Did a month go by already? Geez ... sorry about that. On with the podcast!

Are we being manipulated by an alien race profiteering from our consumerist ways? Are hideous humanoid creatures walking (and copulating) among us undetected? Will an audience believe that Roddy Piper and Keith David would beat each other to bloody pulp in a random alley for 10 minutes over a pair of sunglasses? The answer to all these questions is "YES," according to John Carpenter's 1988 conspiracy theory classic "They Live."

In addition to the previously mentioned questions, the "CAN'T WAIT!" crew and special guest Drew Taylor uncover the truth behind one of the world's most unanswered questions: Can wrestling superstar Rowdy Roddy Piper act? (The answer: Kind of!) Other "They Live" topics include: the importance of a good fight choreographer, the mysteriously clean garbage of downtown Los Angeles, and unwanted alien copulation.

Tune in next time, when we talk about Drew's pick: the 1990 primary color-fueled detective story "Dick Tracy."
