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 94: I Hate Outside

0094 Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2015Oh, dear listeners, it is the time of year that be bring you the Butt-Numb-a-Thon Report! That’s right, we watched 24 hours of movies all in one luxurious glut, and we talk about all of them — vintage classics, restored rarities, and sneak premieres complete with celebrity encounters. And, even better, we are joined once again by awesome guest-star Meghan Murphy of Kawaii Not and Geek Merit Badges fame!

If you would like to drink along, well… we weren’t drinking for this one. We were running on pure, unbridled sleep deprivation. Choose a drink that will make you giddy and sleepy at the same time, and you’ll be there with us.

Episode 81: There’s a Lake in the Way

0081 MinnesotaDear 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 70: It’s Like the Big Sleep, but Better Summarized

0070 Rian JohnsonThis week, dear listeners, we have rejoined with North Star Rollergirl Kate Cornish (aka She Coli) for an episode all about the films of Rian Johnson! So if you have never seen Brick, Brothers Bloom, or Looper, we hope to steer you to a better life.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend Bodega Tamari Reserva Malbec, because it’s Argentinian, and we like Argentinians.
