Reject Radio #124: Movie Piracy and Bloody Knuckles

Getting the other side of the piracy debate, I speak directly to an online pirate about why he does it and how he sees it.

Plus, Goon co-writer Evan Goldberg talks hockey and the violence of comedy while Detachment director Tony Kaye proves he’s still slightly crazy.

On This Week’s Show:

Telling Jokes With a Bloody Mouth [Beginning – 14:00]: Evan Goldberg, co-writer of movies like Superbad and the forthcoming hockey flick Goon explains how going to bars is a great way to hear stories.

They Wobble, But That’s What  They Do [14:00 – 39:15]: The debate isn’t going away, so we’re digging deeper into it by talking directly to an online pirate who has a lot to say about the laws, the entitlement issue, and the not-at-all-simple act of sharing.

Detached [39:15 – The End]: Tony Kaye torched his own career after American History X. Now, he’s emerging again with teacher drama Detachment, which stars Adrien Brody, and he’s still crazy after all these years.
