Episode 108: Let’s Pop the Hubris Bubble!

SwedingThis week, dear listeners, guest star Jerry Belich returns to share stories about movie sweding! That’s right: Jerry and Melissa tell backstage stories about making silly YouTube videos!

(If you are not familiar with the term “sweding”, it refers to making your own homemade version of your favorite movies. The term comes from the Michel Gondry film, Be Kind Rewind, which tells the tale of two video store clerks who accidentally erase their store’s inventory, and must remake all the movies from scratch.)

If you would like to drink along with all the tales of misadventure and reckless endangerment, we recommend Glenlivet 12 (Jerry’s pick), Barefoot Wines Cabernet Sauvignon (Windy’s pick), or Cheerwine (Melissa’s non-alcoholic pick).

More show notes behind the cut!

Episode 2: Watershed Moments

(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
