Los Angeles is Toast!: Nuclear War in 80s Film

Media Potluck is proud to present, Los Angeles is Toast!: Nuclear War in 80s Film.

This month's double feature will be Miracle Mile (1988) and Repo Man (1984).

Taking place in the desolate streets and underground worlds of Los Angeles, circa the mid to late 1980s, Miracle Mile and Repo Man provide two unique, but varied, views of a culture overcome by the fears and anxieties of the cold war.

Check out our previous articles on both films:

Party starts at 6 PM, films begin at 7 PM. Come prepared for discussion!

This will be a media potluck and also a REAL potluck, so everyone is asked to try to bring some food to share! We will be providing a special Repo Man themed cake. Please RSVP and comment with what treat you will bring.

RSVP on Facebook.
Non-Facebook users e-mail us to RSVP and get directions at

Audio Archaeology/ Media Potluck UPDATE

There are big things coming. Media Potluck is on the verge of a huge face lift.

As a result of this, there's no new new article yet, but there has been another re-vamp of one of our old articles. "Hooverphonic Presents Jackie Cane (2002)" is now, like "Musique D'Express (1990)", an Audio Archeology article and has been upgraded. Not only is it a better read, but it now features a full audio playlist. You can check out the new version here: Hooverphonic Presents Jackie Cane (2002).

In addition to our remodeling, I'm happy to announce that our first actual Media Potluck, Terminator: The Party was a success, as you can see here. We're hoping to make our Media Potluck parties a monthly occasion, so be on the lookout.
