Elbows on the Table

In the course of doing research and conducting a number of interviews for the Pulp Magnet column, I discovered Elbows on the Table. This mock interview show hosted by 'Lawrence Carpetburner,' (played by actor and comedian Jim Meskimen) is 'nearly unedited, uncensored, and un-rehersed interview' featuring characters drawn from the Pulp stories of L. Ron Hubbard, who was once a major-league pulp writer before getting religion, etc.

Yes, these faux-Fifties-style mock interviews are intended to promote and market Golden Age Stories and the Galaxy Press, but don't let that turn you away. These interviews are hilarious, possibly some of the most over the top, disastrous and terrible interviews ever committed to video, and very, very funny.

Here's an interview with gunslinger 'Suicide' Weston...



"Did he mention that he was dead in his letter?" -- That has to be one of the best interview questions ever asked!
