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 85: Crotchety Rock

0085 Moving MoviesDear listeners, this week, we bring you our first cross-country recording! Through the wonders of modern technology, this episode was created while Melissa was in Minnesota and Windy was in Texas. In honor of this, we bring you an episode about moving movies (as in movies about characters who are in the process of changing residence, just like both of us).

Since this was our first go at a recording session via Google Hangouts, we had some challenges with the audio. Windy’s audio improves dramatically after the first few minutes, so please hang in there. Also, there is a computer fan whir that occasionally intrudes, so… sorry about that. We now know what we need to fix for next time.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend Windy’s choice of La Puerta Malbec! (We don’t really recommend Melissa’s choice of Killepitsch, unless you are either insatiably curious or unhealthily fascinated by herbs.)

Here are some screenshots from our recording session!
