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 80: Cowboy Donuts

0080 Anthony MannThis week, dear listeners, we welcome back special guest star Eric Knight for an episode about Anthony Mann westerns! That’s right, we get to introduce you to the sub-genre of film noir westerns, with all their moral grey areas and Jimmy Stewartness!

If you would like to drink along, do what we did, and grab a bottle of wine with a horse and a cowboy on it. In particular, we recommend The Show Malbec, whose cowboy is presumably Argentinian.
