Oh no! The Pleasure Dome needs to skip a week!

Howdy, dear listeners! Melissa here.

As you know, I spend many hours each week editing our episodes. (And yes, you do want me to do that. Seriously.) Alas, I have been slammed this week with non-Xanadu things, both planned and unplanned: moving to a new house, long hours at work, intermittent Internet access, a broken water heater, a surprise dentist appointment, etc. With all that going on, there just aren’t enough hours in this week to polish up our latest episode.

This is the first time since starting this podcast that we’ve missed a week; I hope it is also our last. (At the very least, I hope I don’t have another week this crazy for a long time.)

Anyway, I apologize to you fine, patient listeners, and we’ll see you next week. In the meantime, here’s a short film that was made by a young Jason Reitman in 2000, about making the most of the time you have:

Episode 81: There’s a Lake in the Way

Dear listeners, with Windy moving to Texas and all, we’re getting our pre-nostalgia on with an episode all about MINNESOTA MOVIES! That’s right… we spend about half the time telling stories, and the other half talking about the likes of Prince, Diablo Cody, and the Coen brothers.

If you would like to drink along, we found a lot of joy in the bottom of a bottle of Cantele Primitivo. Perhaps you will, too!

Episode 80: Cowboy Donuts

0080 Anthony MannThis week, dear listeners, we welcome back special guest star Eric Knight for an episode about ANTHONY MANN WESTERNS! That’s right, we get to introduce you to the sub-genre of film noir westerns, with all their moral grey areasĀ and Jimmy Stewartness!

If you would like to drink along, do what we did, and grab a bottle of wine with a horse and a cowboy on it. In particular, we recommend The Show Malbec, whose cowboy is presumably Argentinian.
