Riding in Medusa with Bellflower Boys: Donuts, Flames, P-Diddy, The Apocalypse & Picking up Girls

Thompson on Hollywood By Sophia Savage | Thompson on Hollywood August 9, 2011 at 3:00AM

Cruising Los Angeles in the Medusa with Bellflower stars Evan Glodell and Tyler Dawson, I learned: that the car was the prima donna on set, gas money came from P-Diddy, Doing Donuts (the "longest uninterrupted donut" in the car's history) in a Staples parking lot makes me nauseous, and the Medusa is more effective at intimidating folks and impressing young boys than picking up cute girls.

Cruising Los Angeles in the Medusa with Bellflower stars Evan Glodell and Tyler Dawson, I learned: that the car was the prima donna on set, gas money came from P-Diddy, Doing Donuts (the "longest uninterrupted donut" in the car's history) in a Staples parking lot makes me nauseous, and the Medusa is more effective at intimidating folks and impressing young boys than picking up cute girls.

For a glimpse of one helluva of a ride in the Medusa, complete with flames, donuts, chartitable deeds in Venice Beach, a shotgun and lots more, watch below. For a more traditional interview about Sundance and SXSW micro-budget hit Bellflower (now in select theaters and primed for a wider release) and its breakout writer-director-star Glodell, go here, here or here.

Part 1:

Part 2: skip to 2:35 mark for the donuts.

Bonus - The Medusa flaunts its flames at Comic-Con:
