The Midnight Citizen 218: “Behold, the Masked City”

2:35:15 — Join Mike in the studio late on a Saturday night, where he recalls the time he got kicked out of a Chuck E. Cheese, and reviews the stuff he bought off Amazon during quarantine. Exciting stuff.

Show Notes: why nostalgia will destroy us all; people are pretending the pandemic is over, when the data says otherwise; burglars used masks during the pandemic of 1918 to disguise themselves when robbing banks; the time when my friends and I got kicked out of a Chuck E. Cheese for eating there without kids of our own; how we are unwelcome in the places of our past; substitute teaching; tribute to “The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs”, which wrapped up its second season this week; nostalgia is not only ruining our lives, but horror movies, too!; Music Break*; Ian Holm — “Ash” from Alien — is dead at 88; movie theatres will reopen next month with safety restrictions; Svengoolie; stuff I’ve bought off Amazon in the last three weeks of quarantine; Video Street Video Store**; “Tales from Viscauga, AL”: this week, Jim continues his quest for a mysterious videotape, and solves the mystery of who has been robbing the citizens of Viscauga in the night.
