Episode 117: Bless Your Heart

The Nice GuysThis week, dear listeners, we bring you an episode about Shane Black’s latest film, The Nice Guys! Even better, we recorded this with our Mississippi friends, Lisa Rucker and Jessica Griffis, right in the beautiful city of New Orleans!

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either a hand grenade or a shark attack, because all drinks should come with drink toys.

Episode 96: There Is a Party in My Bottle, and You’re Invited!

0096 Party MoviesBuckle up, dear listeners, because this week, we celebrate the New Year with a selection of PARTY MOVIES! (Appropriately, this is an even-numbered episode, so the drunk is especially strong with this one.)

If you would like to drink along (hoo boy), we recommend either Yellowtail Winter Red Blend (Windy’s choice) or Kickapoo Fruit Shine sangria-flavored soda with New Amsterdam Vodka (Melissa’s choice).

(Note: Kickapoo Fruit Shine contains caffeine, unbeknownst to Melissa at the time. Melissa hadn’t had caffeine in many years. If she sounds like a rabid, drunk Tasmanian Devil at times during the episode, that is the reason. She spent the remainder of the night vaguely sick to her stomach, drunk-texting Caltech and JPL engineers until 5 AM.)

Episode 74: Your Soul Is Delicious

0074 CONvergence 2015We have something special for you this week, dear listeners! For this episode, we combined forces with Screw It! A Podcast About Wine and recorded live at CONvergence 2015! That means the audio quality isn’t great and we’re especially squirrelly, but who wouldn’t be when joined onstage with the fabulous Dawn Krosnowski and Lana Rosario? Anyway, we took this great opportunity to learn how to hone our drinking skills, and then we discussed fan communities that have grown around our favorite movies and TV shows.

If you would like to drink along with us, we recommend either Chateau St. Jean Cabernet Sauvignon or Castillero del Diablo Malbec, both of which we tasted with great care during the episode.

Episode 1: WTFW?

Xanadu Sq LogoWelcome to our inaugural podcast! Please join us in our love of movies.

If you care to drink along with us, this week’s wine is a Malbec from Barefoot Wines.

Please excuse our audio problems. The static was only discovered after we recorded the podcast. (Apparently, Snowball microphones do not agree with Audacity.) We did what we could to rescue the audio. We promise that we’ve fixed this entirely for future recording sessions.

And no, we never do manage to explain in the episode why we named the podcast Xanadu Cinema Pleasure Dome. How about you posit a theory and e-mail it to us? pleasuredome@xanaducinema.com
