FDL Movie Night: Circle the Wagen

By: Monday June 2, 2014 4:59 pm

Circle the Wagen follows Dave and his best friend Charlie Pecoraro on their journey down Route 66 in “The Croc,” a baby blue bus purchased, sight unseen, on eBay for $787. Mired by the vehicle’s mechanical problems during his first attempt cross-country, Dave has left The Croc in the parking lot of a church–luckily the pastor likes him–while he and Charlie map out the network of VW clubs along Route 66 that they can turn to for help. Because they are going to need it.

And now, former Black Flag singer and noted spoken word punk rock uber-dude Henry Rollins is the host of “Animal Underworld,” where you can watch Rollins veins bulge.
