FOFA #2321 – Hollywood’s Disposable Beefcake

We love the wild women and outrageous plots of films like Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! Rocky Horror, Myra Breckinridge and Beyond the Valley of the Dolls, but despite their success as camp classics, after their release, the hunks who starred in them all but disappeared from Hollywood.

Today we’re joined by Peaches Christ, who has been parodying many of these campy films for decades, to discuss why these hunks ran screaming from Hollywood after making only one film.

Today, we wrap up the year with our annual holiday special “Incredibly Strange Christmas Music, Vol. 10”- weird but wonderful holiday songs we think deserve a second listen.
