Burning Love

Austin Cinematic Limits

Have you ever really experienced Burning Love? I mean have you ever really hunkered down and made a two-hour marathon of it with 200 or so total strangers? It might sound like an overwhelming experience because there is just so much to take in, so I wholeheartedly recommend inviting “Macho Man” Ken Marino to join in the festivities, as he will surely make you feel at ease each and every time that he offers up his hose. In case you have not already guessed, I am talking about Marino’s Yahoo! Comedy series, Burning Love. Alamo Drafthouse programmer John Gross brought star/director/producer Ken Marino and writer/producer Erica Oyama to the Alamo South Lamar (Austin) this past weekend for a Burning Love Marathon (proceeds from the ticket sales went directly to the Austin Firefighters’ Relief & Outreach Fund). Admittedly, I had never succumbed to the temptation of Burning Love prior to this marathon event, mainly because I do not enjoy watching television shows online. Luckily, Marino is a frequent visitor to Austin so I knew an event like this one would probably come to fruition eventually. I had missed the sneak peaks of Burning Love at the Off-Centered Film Fest and the Ultimate Childrens Hospital Marathon, but now I am glad to have waited to experience all 14 episodes of the first season in one sitting. Because… Wow! It is a really great series to experience with a drunkenly enthusiastic audience.
