INT. RECORDING STUDIO – NIGHT
The PRODUCER is sitting upright on the couch. His eyes are red and very bloodshot, but he is seemingly alert. DJ 3000’s camera is slowly flashing as he watching him intently.
DJ 3000: [internal monologue] I JUST WISH I COULD SEE WHAT HE’S SEEING.
CUT TO: THE PRODUCER’S POINT OF VIEW
Everything is extremely blurry, save for a single figure that almost appears to be floating in the center of the room.
ROB RYAN: …come on, man, I’ve been jonesin’ for this ever since the full moon this month.
PRODUCER: I hear you, man, I really do. But I’m worried that the topic is too limited. There just aren’t enough songs about wolves to work with.
ROB RYAN: Okay, but hear me out – what if we expand the topic!
PRODUCER: Go on.
ROB RYAN: We could include anything from the same animal family. Dogs, and, uh…just dogs, I guess. But there’s other stuff too. How about the moon?
PRODUCER: [shrugs agreeably]
ROB RYAN: And like, werewolf stuff too. Silver bullets, and crosses, and things.
ROB RYAN: Yeah, some people think you can scare a werewolf away by wearing a crucifix around your neck.
PRODUCER: Huh. And…?
ROB RYAN: [grins ominously] Works about as well as it does for keeping them Catholic girls from gettin’ pregnant. You ever been with a Catholic girl?
PRODUCER: Well, there was this one time…
ROB RYAN: WOO WOO WOO! AWWHOOOOOOOOOOO! MY LITTLE BUDDY OVER HERE TOOK A GIRL IN PLAID AND HAD HER CALLING OUT FOR HER MAKER! THAT’S GOOD HUSTLE!
PRODUCER: Wait, isn’t that…isn’t that your brother’s thing?
ROB RYAN: Hey, I’m a coach too, you know. Bring it in.
PRODUCER: [takes another sip of moonshine, brings it in]
ROB RYAN: Now let me tell you something. Quarantine isn’t fun. Being all alone by yourself with only a computer to keep you company and accidentally consuming a bunch of methanol isn’t fun. But hallucinating guests to come in and present you with topics for Request Line? That’s at least a little bit fun, right?
ROB RYAN: So I want you to get on the air, and you open those phone lines, and YOU TAKE THOSE GODDAMN REQUESTS! YOU ROCK THOSE LISTENERS’ SOCKS OFF! WOLFPACK ON THREE!
CUT BACK TO: DJ 3000’s POINT OF VIEW
PRODUCER: AWHOOOOO….WHOOOO…YIP YIP YIP…AWWHOOOOOOOOOOO!
DJ 3000: [unsuccessfully attempts to download WOLF language module] NUTS…WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT?
PRODUCER: [slurring heavily] Request line…wolves.
DJ 3000: OH.
PRODUCER: And dogs. And moons. And, uh, the other thing.
DJ 3000: THE OTHER THING?
PRODUCER: No slowing down with the…SILVER BULLETS!
DJ 3000: THERE ARE SONGS ABOUT SILVER BULLETS?
PRODUCER: I don’t know, I hope so! Turn on the amp, good buddy, it’s time to rock!
Today’s theme is: “Canis Lupus”. We’re looking for songs about WOLVES, but don’t be shy about stretching for this one. Dogs, moons, silver bullets, anything you can think of that can be connected to wolves. Band names and album titles are fair game. I’ve gotten us started with the granddaddy of the genre.
