Special thanks to Judd Blevins, who as a Marine has a special place in his heart for Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket and thus pulled the metaphoric trigger on this commission. A tale of two movies if there ever was one, and featuring what A.Ron describes as a very “un-Kubrickian” structure and asthetic, they guys talk about life in the military, ethics and morality in times of war, season two of Serial Podcast, and probably ill-informed commentary on geopolitics.
If you want to know more, you might want to check out “Born to Kill: The Hidden Meaning Behind Full Metal Jacket” on YouTube, and “The Jungian Thing: Duality in Full Metal Jacket”, which is a discussion archived from a newsgroup between several notable creative and critical types.
Thanks again, Judd! If you’d like to commission your very own podcast check out our shop for more details!
