Hey. I posted a Christmas episode. Go listen to it. Then go follow the new Twitch account.
Well, we’ve done it now. We’ve crossed into non-movie territory in a way from which we can never come back.Continue reading “Season 3, Episode 8: Neon Genesis Evangelion”
I give up trying to figure out episode numbers for this “season”. I may have to go back at some point and just re-number them all from scratch.
This episode’s first half will be a GBU test of loyalty, I’m sure, because the issue of the accusation against legendary director Woody Allen is something that everyone thinks they know about, and if they think they do, they don’t want to be on the wrong side of it. But I encourage you to approach this essay (documentary) by Ricky Worley with an open mind.Continue reading “Season 3 Episode 7: ‘By the Way, Woody Allen is Innocent’ & In The Mood For Love”
Well, here we are, back for a new round of Spooktacular podcasting! We couldn’t fit in both of the movies we really wanted to, so stay tuned for Satoshi Kon’s Perfect Blue in the next couple of days.
Takashi Miike’s Audition and Perfect Blue were suggestions from listener Eric, the first listener to ever write in to the show (which you can do as well by e-mailing me at Brian@Candidpodcast.com). Audition wound up being pretty divisive, and I think we forgot to actually talk about the plot for possibly the first time ever on the show. Whoops! Maybe we try and do a better job of it on the Perfect Blue episode!
I said I would plug Jon’s Twitch presence where he DJs, and that’s exactly what I’m going to do:
Did you all know that you can’t embed Twitch clips without a plugin? Did you know that even the $50/year WordPress plan doesn’t support plugins? You need the business plan.
I forgot to post this on whatever day this post claims to have been posted. We were so out of the habit of recording that I also got out of the habit of remembering I have a website.
Here’s our episode reviewing a feel-good dramatization of a feel-good situation involving the feelingest-good man, Fred Rogers.Continue reading “GBU Season 2, Episode 18: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood”
In this, which I consider to be an absolutely delightful bonus episode, I agreed to share this awful picture from my high school art class portfolio, where we were asked to draw self-portraits and to have them introduce us. So. Here it fucking is.
And here’s the photo I was alluding to, which was taken around the same year or perhaps the year after, when I was on an Art Club field trip out of state. I hope you’re happy, you bastards.
Finally! A proper unmitigated disaster of a recording! Finally! Something to struggle against! Something to win! This was the episode…that almost wasn’t!
I went to see Taika Waititi’s Jojo Rabbit with Jon and Brooke, and a couple of Brooke’s friends, and we were all excited to record, but couldn’t get it done that evening. We converged in the Dayton Upstairs Recording Studio a few days later and set up to record with a template that I’d made so I wouldn’t have to set the project up fresh every time. And I firmly believe that’s where things went to shit.Continue reading “GBU Season 2, Episode 17: Jojo Rabbit”
This time around we look at Robert Eggers’ sophomore picture, The Lighthouse, starring Willem Defoe and Robert Pattinson. It’s an absolutely crazy picture. Some are calling it the best film of the year. What did we think? Actually, our opinions were pretty divided!Continue reading “GBU Season 2, Episode 16: The Lighthouse”
