Allan Mott - YEG Me some B-Movie gold

Allan Mott - So much fun to have local Edmontonian Allan join us to talk about his writing career and creative touch points in our community. 

To go along with his passion for B-Movies, he’s a book writer too! A few years back he was allowed to publish his own book on the subject, the imaginatively titled Scary Movies, which documented the creation, reaction and relevance of six of his favourite horror movies. 

It remains the best of the 12 and ½ books he’s managed to publish thus far (don’t ask about the ½ book, it’s a long story). 

As a film theorist (which is a pretentious way to say that he writes really long reviews where the actual quality of the films are usually irrelevant) Allan operates under the belief that anyone can come up with interesting insights while deconstructing Citizen Kane, Persona, The Seventh Seal, 8 ½, Badlands or Breathless, but it takes imagination, hard work and a twisted personality to do the same with Skatetown USA, Don’t Go in the House, Cheerleaders Wild Weekend or Disorderlies.

Which leads us to Vanity Fear, which was once called The House of Glib before Allan got tired of constantly telling people what “glib” meant. Its purpose is to serve as a repository for any cinematic observation Allan wishes to make that is unlikely to ever be printed anywhere else. 

In addition to B-Movies and writing, we chat about his love of food and he shared many dishes he hopes others discover in Edmonton.

Here is the coveted Food list that Allan shared with us on the podcast. You have to go enjoy these local dishes in Edmonton!

So what is Yeg Me all about?

Edmonton is a great city and we wanted to connect with some Edmontonians to learn more about them and more importantly, some of their thoughts and insight about Edmonton (YEG). 

So...what better way to do that than to host a podcast on said topic. We also had some fun coming up with some Yeg.Me swag with some pretty awesome YEG designs.
