The Bomb Squad would like to apologize for the last two week’s technical difficulties. We hope you can join us tonight at 9ish PM Central. It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and we’re Irish, so let’s hope luck is on our side. Third time’s the charm?
Rubber features a serial killer named Robert who (that?) travels around blowing things up with his mind. Oh yeah, and Robert is a tire. Or, tyre, if you’re British. Any way you spell it, we feel like the premise of this movie is so ridiculous that it has to be good, right? This is our first French film – oh là là! – but we’re guessing it won’t be our last.
Showtime is tonight, 9pm Central. Make yourself a cocktail, find yourself a comfy spot on the couch, tune in to Rubber on Netflix, and pull up the liveblog starting at 9pm CDT.
Irish car bomb! For obvious reasons. We made ours the “original” way, with 1/2 Kahlùa, 1/4 Bailey’s Irish cream, and 1/4 Jameson Irish Whiskey in a shot glass, dropped into a pint of Guinness, but most people just use Irish cream and Irish whiskey. We happen to have lots of Kahlùa lying around. One of our friends, who is married to someone from Belfast, would want us to note that not only is this an American cocktail, it is typically not ordered in Ireland (and could be considered offensive across the pond). But since we live in America, it’s St. Patrick’s Day, and nobody drinks a French car bomb (which is an actual drink, apparently), this seemed like a fitting choice for this film. Apologies to our Irish relatives.
