Episode 112: Congratulations, Ulysses S. Grant

Movie-Themed WeddingsThis week, dear listeners, we bring you a completely self-indulgent episode about our movie-themed weddings! That’s right: Melissa just got married a few weeks ago in a very nerdy fashion, and Windy also had a nerd wedding when she got married, so we just talk about all that for an hour. We promise that there is far more talk about swords and Godzilla than flower arrangements or color themes.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Yellowtail Sangria (Windy’s pick) or Bushmills Whiskey (Melissa’s pick).

We don’t currently have a copy of the photo of Windy’s wedding that was discussed in the episode (we’ll add it later when we find a copy of it), but here are a couple photos from Melissa’s wedding:

Episode 111: Scary Evil Ethnic Natives

Racism in MoviesThis week, dear listeners, we have far too much fun discussing RACISM IN MOVIES, because our special guest star is the delightful Duck Washington! Duck is an actor and writer who recently created Caucasian-Aggressive Pandas and Other Mulatto Tales, a stage show about his experience growing up mixed-race, so he has a few things to say about racism.

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Gnarly Head Cabernet Sauvignon (totally gnarly!) or Low Hanging Fruit Merlot Reserve (because surely you want the higher quality low-hanging fruit).

Here’s a photo of Duck with the wine:

Episode 76: A Bulwark of Artifice and Awesome

0076 1987This week, dear listeners, we welcome back Cetius the Scotchbringer for an episode about the year 1987! He figures that 1987 was a stellar year for fun movies, and we we completely agree.

If you look back at the year 1987 and feel old, we recommend that you drink more Aberlour 16 scotch, because that’s what we did. (And if you’re too young to remember 1987, please wait while I reach for my glass…)

Episode 46: Let’s Punch Each Other and Become Friends

0046 Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2014Happy holidays, dear listeners! Our gift to you this year is an extra-long and exuberant episode about our experiences at Butt-Numb-a-Thon 2014! We are also pleased to welcome back our guest star, awesome artist and fellow BNATer Meghan Murphy!

If you would like to drink along, we suggest a delicious milkshake made with (512) Pecan Porter and topped with whipped cream and pecans. If you don’t live in Texas and don’t have that delightful beer handy, feel free to spike that egg nog you have in your fridge.

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
