It’s XanaCineHoliday (Trial Run)!

Hey, everyone! Windy and Melissa are trying something new today: XANACINEHOLIDAY! Windy will be in a theater watching movies all day in Texas, and Melissa will be doing the same in Minneapolis. We will, of course, podcast about it later, but if you would like to follow our misadventures, keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook accounts by looking out for the #xanacineholiday hashtag.

Alternately, if you’re in the Minneapolis area and have nothing better to do today, here’s Melissa’s schedule. Feel free to show up and say hi!

10:45 AM: The Martian (Arbor Lakes AMC)
2:00 PM: Trumbo (Willow Creek)
4:15 PM: Creed (Willow Creek)
7:10 PM: Bridge of Spies (Willow Creek)
9:50 PM: Spectre (Willow Creek)

If this works out, we’ll do a full-out event on February 20th, 2016. Mark your calendars!


Back on October 15th

Hello, dear listeners!

This is just a quick note to say that we won’t have a podcast this week. Melissa is still fighting the Fantastic Flu and basically hasn’t been outside her house since Sunday. (Apparently, nearly everyone at Fantastic Fest caught a cold this year — or at least it looks that way from the complaints on the Facebook group.)

Anyway, we figured you needed some extra time to catch up with the glut of podcasts we posted last week. That was a lot a lot of hours of drunken / sleep deprived / cold-medicated shenanigans, y’all.

We’ll catch up with you next week!

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:

A Quick Announcement for Underappreciated Movies

Hello, dear readers! You may have noticed that there wasn’t an Underappreciated Movies post at 9:00 AM this morning. We are very sorry!

The reason for this is that Windy and Melissa are BOTH in the process of moving homes, plus the Fringe Festival is coming up. In the whirlwind of crazy, we ran through our backlog of movie picks, and now don’t have the mental bandwidth to keep up.

So, we’re putting Underappreciated Movies on hold until life calms down a bit.  But don’t worry — the podcasts and Trailer Tuesday will keep coming!

Site Update: Episode List Page

Greetings, dear listeners! We just made a quick site update that you might like: we added a page that lists all of our podcasts in one spot.

Even better, the page not only gives you links to the episode posts, but it also lists what each show is actually about, when it was posted, and when it was recorded. There are even search and sort functions, as well as some information about upcoming episodes!

So, if you are one of our listeners who likes to pick and choose episodes of interest, or if you find yourself trying to locate our episode about Godzilla, or if you want to hear all episodes featuring Sharon Stiteler as a guest… this new page is for you!
