Episode 131: XanaCineMovieTradeHolidayDayThing: Part 2

Episode 130: XanaCineMovieTradeHolidayDayThing: Part 1

XanaCineHolidayThis week, dear listeners, Windy and Melissa do another variant on the XanaCineHoliday, where they each spent an entire day watching movies they had never seen, as dictated by the other host. The movies range from ultra-obscure avant-garde to a movie where projectile vomiting happens before the opening credits end, and approximately 71% of them are arguably musicals.

If you want to drink along, grab some Bushmills Irish Whiskey or some sake and dig in!

ALERT ALERT ALERT LATE BREAKING NEWS: filmmaker Ross Sutherland has posted the entirety of Stand by for Tape Backup to Vimeo for free. YOU CAN WATCH IT NOW!

Also, Melissa was totally wrong. The first time she saw Stand by for Tape Back-Up, she saw it performed live; the second time is when she saw the film version. Proof is in Episode 84d!

Episode 129: Thornado!

MCUWe’re back, dear listeners, with an episode all about power dynamics in the MCU (Marvel Comics movie universe) and superhero movies in general! And for this extremely long (and kinda drunken) discussion, we are joined by geography professor David Tyler McKay!

If you would like to drink along (and why wouldn’t you?), we recommend either Bushmills Irish Whiskey (Melissa’s choice), Grupo Olarra ‘Acantus’ Cabernet Sauvignon – Tempranillo (Windy’s choice), or New Amsterdam Vodka (which is what Melissa was feeding David).

Episode 218: A Nickel Short of Quasimodo

Bad LieutenantThis week, dear listeners, we bring you an episode about Abel Ferrara’s 1992 movie Bad Lieutenant and Werner Herzog’s 2009 not-remake Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans! Why? Well, Windy hadn’t seen them before, and Melissa had a need to talk about inexplicable iguanas.

A special note about this episode: it was recorded over a year ago, on February 23rd, 2016. It is one of six episodes that we recorded early last year, which never got posted due to our later hiatus and subsequent posting schedule change. Thankfully, we were talking about movies that were already over five years old, so there aren’t too many stale references.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Two Gingers whiskey or New Glarus Staghorn Octoberfest beer.

Episode 127: They Ask So Little of Me

SFFSFFIn this week’s episode, Windy and writer/TV show host/modern rogue Jason Murphy bring back tales of SFFSFF, the Science Fiction and Fantasy Short Film Festival in Seattle, WA! (Since Melissa got to have a B-Fest episode without Windy, it’s only fair that Windy also got a solo show!)

Show notes behind the cut! Exclamation points!!!
