JTTV - Season 2, Episode 17 - It's That Junk Thief!

Our greatest episode ever. We promise.

If you watch only one episode of Junk Thief TV, watch this one.

Honestly, we want to bring more episodes similar to the finale of this one that features a silent movie treatment of the mythical San Francisco. Let us know if you want more and any suggestions for future episodes (including guest stars; we love guest stars!).

How fortunate we are that you are harvesting what would otherwise be lost -- like finding treasure at a flea market. In the spirit of Agnes Varda who celebrates all junk thieves in her film, THE GLEANERS, I salute you (Love the black hat).

That opening sequence ("OH GAWWWD!!!") is one of the most disturbing things I've seen committed to film. What was it from?

Blue - Thanks, I have long had that film on my too see list and need to catch it.

Rich - Several sources, primarily "The Loved One" (1965), in which Mrs. Joyboy has a light evening supper, "Stroszek" (1977) and "Le Cochon danseur" (1907).

I can count on marcel junk thief not to break a promise...however, I was under the impression bunter was going to make an appearance - did I blink and miss him!

this is the fourth reference to absinthe over the last week - I'm thinking I need to check this magical elixir out!

I must say the beginning food sequence was almost enough to make me never want to eat again.... why doesn't kfc in the us serve fried king crab!?

Mouse - Due to his contract clause, Bunter demands to have his name in the credits even when he can't lower himself to appear in an episode.

Yes, KFC needs to offer king crab on the menu, and I might actually start eating there. Though this was enough to make me a vegetarian for good.

Brilliant! I was expecting a shot of that wino winking back at you!

Speaking of THE LOVED ONE. here is a picture of me at one of the locations used in the film.

I look a little different now.

Gavin - The wino might have been fun instead, but it just seemed right to have the mannequin at Rochester's Big & Tall after that eating disorder opening.

That's a cute photo of you as a tyke. Now I have to recall where that appears in "The Loved One".

The opening shot of the banquet hall in the beginning.

At 8:43 AM, Blogger Ladrón de Basura (a.k.a. Junk Thief) said...

Gavin - I thought that might be where Mrs. Joyboy got her snacks.

What have I just seen? A disgusting fat woman pigging out! And that pig! THAT DISTURBING PIG!

Imma have nightmares now.

WAT - Brigitte Bardot made me do it to raise awareness of the fate of zee animals.
