Time Bandits

Episode 19 – The Brain and Glass Tiger

We’re focusing on the Great White North for the 19th episode of Time Bandits! Yes, it’s an all Canadian episode, with the 1988 science-fiction creature feature The Brain – directed by Bloody Birthday‘s . Then, we take a listen to Glass Tiger‘s album Diamond Sun – a thoroughly smooth and cruddy pop album.

Joining us this week is Paul Corupe – creator of the incredible website Canuxploitation, and co-curator of Toronto’s The Black Museum! Follow Paul on Twitter, and make sure you check out The Black Museum‘s lectures that are now in session!

    modernsuperiorKurtHalfyard I have yet to see nekkid ladies in the Scale-Up Engineering section of the building (one of the high points of the film) but the nick-name for that area is indeed SUE.   And there is lots and lots of SODIUM in the building, but if you really wanted to fuck-up a mutant over-sized brain, you’d use Butyl-Lithium, which really does some fire-works when you drop in in water.  Just sayin’
    Also shot in our building:  William Shatner’s Tekwar TV show in the early 1990s.

    I currently work in the building in which that film was shot, the Xerox Research Centre of Canada.

    Deefidicus Haha, that’s awesome! Both that you have that VHS and also that you have no Glass Tiger related anecdotes.

    Ha! I actually have a VHS copy of The Brain given to me by a neighbour who worked on the film. More importantly though, I have nothing related to Glass Tiger.
