#14: Livin' the Dream: Matt Returns from Appalachia

After six weeks of grand views and celestial visions, Matt hath returned from the land of Appalachia. Now, residing in the great city of Chicago, he has christened the reuniting of General Snobbery for the foreseen future. Praise be! 

This snob's for you, Roland Emmerich. 

This snob's for you, Roland Emmerich. 

In a conversation of much joy (re: the snobbing method), Sean inquires Matt about a particular kind of vision he received on his spirit quest through Appalachia. Indeed, great visions from on high have come to determine the pathway forth for General Snobbery: to write the script for the upcoming film Independence Day 3

This is a plea to Mr. Roland Emmerich (@rolandemmerich) to give us a shot. We love you, Roland, and we love your films, and we have had many visions on directions the script may go. If you wish to skip past our attempts to impress, please travel to the 29 minute mark, where you will discover some of our large-scheme ideas. 

Listener, you can join our crusade by following us on Twitter (@GeneralSnobbery) and liking/retweeting our daily tweets @rolandemmerich. We know that with your help, we can make this dream a reality. Then, at last, we may all spread our snobs far and wide that we are at long last "livin' the dream."

#10: Appalachian Trail and Hitchhiking: Snobs on the Road

For this monumental, groundbreaking, unforeseen tenth episode (praise be, praise be), we travel off the beaten track of film deconstruction, endeavoring into a late-night, windy conversation in which Sean interviews Matt about his noble decision to hike the Appalachian Trail, which he is currently doing. The meditative interview traveled many interesting places, discussing such topics as Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods, Jack Kerouac’s On the Road, the importance of travel, the desire for discomfort, Sean's experienceshitchhiking the West Coast, and the ongoing desire for “transformative experiences.” We hope you enjoy this interview-turned-conversation, listener, and we hope that should you get the chance, you will travel to the ends of the earth in your search for wisdom and illumination. Praise be, praise be.
