If you held off on listening last week because you wanted to watch me and Sergio Pinheiro talk about Jacob's Ladder in moving pixels, now's your chance! The video version of the podcast is live at https://youtu.be/NDsMPxCj2oE
This time around, my friend Sergio Pinheiro and I are talking about politics, video games, AI art, and all things uncanny -- including 1990's Jacob's Ladder. Listen, and then go jump into one of the AI art playgrounds to start making your own weirdness.
If you'd like to watch Francisco's face as he apologizes for making me watch Xtro II: The Second Encounter, here is your chance! The video is live at https://youtu.be/qMhxyAN993Q
Right out of the gate, Francisco apologizes to me for making me watch Xtro II: The Second Encounter (1982), so you know early on what we think of this movie. Still a fun chat, though!
During our talk, I mention having first watched Shocking Dark on Rob Schrab's Found Crap. Well, it was actually on Rob Schrab's Cyberpunk Megazone, so... my bad. Either way, they both stream live on Sundays at https://schrabhomevideo.com/. Follow @schrabhomevideo on Instagram to know when.
I'm talking again with my friend Francisco Lacerda about Xtro II: The Second Encounter (1991), which, despite the name, is not a movie you have to do any homework for.
Quick programming note, the podcast is going semiweekly. (That means once every two weeks; don't @ me, you troglodytes.) If I have a video, it'll post a week after the audio, but otherwise, the episodes will be coming every other week. I know this breaks your heart, but we all have to learn how to cope with disappointment. It doesn't mean I don't love you. (You thinking "biweekly" means every two weeks is why I don't love you.)
I'm doing something weird with the show this week: showing my face! When I talked with Bob Rose and Jeff Frumess about Ed and His Dead Mother, we recorded our chat over Zoom. That meant I had this big video sitting around on my computer, and I thought... hey, what the hell? If you're into looking at people, here's three hours of our dumb faces cracking up while we attempt to talk about the movie (and fail pretty miserably).
This week, Jeremy Herbert and I are going to the past's future with Runaway (1984), starring Tom Selleck and his least-whimsical haircut of the 20th century.
Jimmy returns, and he and I squawk like a couple of old fuddy-duddies about the state of Hollywood today. But hey, we loved Sneakers (1992). Note for the spoiler-wary: we both recommend this movie, and yes, we spoil the crap out of it, so if this kind of thing is important to you, maybe give it a watch before listening.
