Arson Victims Alonso Duralde & Dave White Score New Wheels

As we mentioned earlier on the ‘bowl, film critics Alonso Duralde and Dave White lost their cars to the L.A. arsonist. The couple’s insurance didn’t cover the cost of replacing both vehicles, and film critics are chronically underpaid, so friends did some fundraising on their behalf.

Well, as of this past weekend, the fellas are carless no more! They’ve purchased a used Mazda to get them to all those film screenings.

You can hear Duralde and White discuss the arson ordeal – and a hell of a lot of movies – on their delightful podcast Linoleum Knife.
