And so the quoting begins. When you were 19, if someone handed you a Tom Robbins book, more than likely it would change your life. It certainly did for our guest, director Kristin Skye Hoffmann. We talk of beets and love and sex and drugs and how the world can change for the better with just a little mayonnaise.
“Lemon curry?” I (Taylor) really wanted to use this space to fill our web post with quote after quote after quote from my favorite thing of all time, Monty Python. However, that would be far too silly and the general public wouldn’t understand it, so on we go!
On today’s episode we talk to musician Devon Torrey Bryant about his love of John, Graham, Terry, Terry, Eric and Michael, and how that love translated into a life of intellectual pursuits and silliness. Saying things like “What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?” to passing strangers, then frightening the children and barging into queues, perhaps doing a Yorkshire accent for some confused pre-teens in Boulder, and finally getting spat at in the face like he always dreamed of.
“I don’t know if I’m unhappy because I’m not free, or if I’m not free because I’m unhappy.” – Patricia Franchini.
Ahhhh, French cinema. If you are looking for existentialism, casual sex, talk of love and hate, and heaping spoonfuls of ennui, you’ve come to the right place.
Join us as we talk to journalist and comedian Byron Graham about Truffaut, Godard, and all the other men of the late 50s and early 60s who experimented in the auteur style and who changed filmmaking forever.
Can you consider yourself a good person if you don’t like PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES or A VERY MURRAY CHRISTMAS? How much nog is too much nog? And what if everybody is just feeling sad and depressed during the holidays? Let’s see what happens!
Kevin and Taylor aren’t often around kids. This could be the reason they thought it would e a really fun idea to ask a 3 year-old her thoughts on the Disney movie Frozen. It wasn’t a terrible idea, they just got more slobber and less insight. Ahhh, let it go, right?!
Join us as we chat with musician Michael Saul (of Automatic Iris) and his adorable kid Miranda (with cameos by her twin brother Oliver) about their fave, or at least most watched movie! Parents around the world can relate.
It’s Badass Motherfucker Dave Gborie, guys. If you’ve never seen David Gborie do stand-up, we just don’t know what you’re doing. Likewise, if you’ve never seen Shaft or Foxy Brown, or Super Fly, or any number of Blacksploitation movies, you gotta get on that, like, yesterday.
Join us as we talk to David about his love of the genre, about how you to can have a race catharsis, and how when it comes down to it, ain’t nobody better than Pam Grier.
All we really want to do is list Dennis Hopper quotes from Blue Velvet. Unfortunately, the FCC might come after us even though they have no jurisdiction over blog posts. Such is the insane world of our subject director. A seemingly upstanding citizen embroiled in a world of drugs, sex, gun play, violence, profanity and blatant lip syncing? You better believe it’s Lynch.
Join us as we talk to filmmaker Joseph Kolean about one of his favorite directors, and about how to be a director in 2015 is to be influenced by Lynch. There’s no avoiding it. It’s happening again.
You pal Kevin O’Brien jaunted off to New York for a week to take in the sights and smells, and maybe stumble through a song on a rooftop. Maybe he got into a conversation about being a news producer in the biggest market in the country? Maybe he just soothed his after-brunch stomach with the subtle sounds of a humming truck? Whatever fun he got into he recorded for your audio pleasure!
Listen in as we take in the sounds of NYC, which, for Kevin, mostly involves talking to people originally from Denver, including The Nix Brothers, Zac Maas, Megan Swezey and Adam Maid.
