AS WE’RE still enjoying a visit from Sharon’s sister, we take advantage of the opportunity to bring back an interview that hasn’t been online for a couple of years: in October of 2005, in the wake of Hurricanes Katrina, Hurricane Stan and the devastating earthquake in Pakistan, we spoke with Stan Deyo twice in the span of a week.
Stan’s life reads like a spy thriller — except that most people would find the plot too hard to believe.
HISTORY seems to be the theme of today’s show, although that wasn’t our intent when we hit “record”. We talked about a couple of movies we watched over the weekend, which both featured missions to destroy an ancient buried evil that wants to emerge into the light of day to destroy mankind (and both of which starred Ron Perlman of the Hell Boy movies, oddly enough).
We agree–Mutant Chronicles was better than The Devil’s Tomb, which failed to deliver on the intriguing premise of a team of scientists stumbling onto the Abyss in the Iraqi desert. Even the frozen nephilim that was a dead ringer for an alien gray didn’t help.
Elsewhere in the Middle East: Iranian intelligence was intercepting, analyzing, and spoofing messages on Twitter, MySpace, and Facebook during the election protests, thanks to technology from Siemens and Nokia.
