Episode 123: Gettin’ Silly, Gettin’ Deep with Sex Canaries

Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2016We’re back, dear listeners, and we bring you news from Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2016! Meghan Murphy returns as our special guest correspondent, and this year, we are also joined by BNAT newbie, Barb Lind!

If you would like to drink along, we recommend just taking a long swig of sleep deprivation, because that’s what all four of us were working on. (If you do need to sleep, Melissa does not recommend sleeping on the bathroom floor.)

Episode 115: A Blunt Instrument at the Sharp Utensil Society

Who's Afraid of Virginia WoolfThis week, dear listeners, we discuss the Liz Taylor/Richard Burton film adaptation of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, which was released 50 years ago as of this June! Windy had never seen it before, so Melissa figured that it was about damned time.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend WATER. That’s right. We both drank WATER for this episode, which is probably a first in XanaCineHistory. But, seriously, this movie has a proximity intoxication effect. It is unwise to double-down on such power.

Episode 97: From Ant-Man to Zinzana

0097 Best Movies of 2015This week, dear listeners, we bring you an episode about movies that delighted us in 2015! While we fully admit that 2015 was a rough year in many aspects, it was completely loaded with cinematic joys, and we bore witness to many of them!

Episode 65: The Ugly Polyester Carpet of the Soul

0065 Tinker Tailor Soldier SpyThis week, dear listeners, we get literary with an in-depth discussion of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy: the book, the BBC miniseries, and the 2011 film! And for our discussion, we are joined by the ever-erudite author Pat Harrigan!

If you have not read or seen any version of Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, dear listeners, be wary: this episode is loaded with spoilers! We recommend all three versions of this tale, so please indulge in at least one of them prior to listening.

If you feel the need to fortify yourself with alcohol for this detailed exploration of very British things, we recommend a bottle of Cline Zinfandel, which did very nicely for us.

Episode 2: Watershed Moments

Xanadu Sq LogoWe survived the last podcast long enough to make another podcast!

If you care to drink along with us, this week’s wine is a Malbec from Gascon Wines. (It’s lovely.)

Please excuse a few minor audio problems. While we were able to rid ourselves of the static heard last week, you will probably notice some audio artifacts here and there. (The audio for next week’s episode is stellar, I assure you. Despite our inebriated states, we have an upward slope on our learning curve.)

And we went another week without explaining why we named the podcast Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome. How about you posit a theory and e-mail it to us? pleasuredome@xanaducinema.com
