0:00:00 - 0:45:55 - On this special episode of Travis Bickle, Tucker Stone talks with Tim Goodyear, the wizard behind Video Tonfa, published by the royal family over at Floating World. Here's the skinny--about 40 minutes into talking, the internet lords shut down, and when Tucker and Tim reconnected, the only audio recorded was Tim's responses, in garbled static, to Tucker, who you don't hear at all. We've assembled the initial conversation about Video Tonfa and Tim's approach to film and hope to have Tim back on the show soon--but in the meantime, we did not want to deny listeners the chance to hear us talk about Cyborg again, because Jean-Claude Van Damme rules. 

The spreads above come directly from Video Tonfa--and if you only read one film back in 2016, we hope it was this one. If not--move it to the top of your list. It's good shit.

Next Episode: Rogue One! It's terrible!
