Movie Chat 009: From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

On Sunday night, August 27, 2017, the Movie Night Crew watched Princess Mononoke and… Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. Hence, the title of this episode. This would have been my grand finale to Dog Days of Podcasting 2017 if I’d had time to edit it before Dragon Con; instead, it’s the first episode of my post-Dog Days biweekly release schedule.

This episode contains strong language (again, only a single curse word).

DDoP 2017 Ep26: Movie Chat 008: Dueling Cowboys

The Movie Night Crew watched Red River and Take the Money and Run on Sunday, March 12, 2017. The main body of this episode was recorded that night, right before the first movie. However, this is all the discussion I recorded that night.

This episode contains strong language (no F-bombs this time, but another curse word).

DDoP 2017 Ep19: Movie Chat 007: Paint Your Wagon

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Saturday, August 19, 2017. This is my second Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew for this month, and the plan is to keep releasing a new one every Saturday for as long as I can. The panel discussion in this episode was recorded live last Sunday night, August 13, 2017, and discusses the movie Paint Your Wagon.

This episode may contain strong language. (I admit to releasing this one with only minimal editing and production. Usually I listen all the way through before posting the audio, but I’m on the road  today (Friday, August 18) and have other things to do.)

Show Notes:

DDoP 2017 Ep12: Movie Chat 006: The Apartment and Attack of the 50-Foot Woman

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Saturday, August 12, 2017. Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew is back! The panel discussion in this episode, recorded Sunday, June 18, 2017, covers two black-and-white movies, The Apartment and Attack of the 50-Foot Woman. There is some history, some commentary, and a lot of laughter.

This episode contains some strong language.

Movie Chat 005: Mel Brooks Night

I went for a shorter episode of Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew this week, mainly because of NaNoWriMo. This week’s episode is all about two of the great Mel Brooks comedies, Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs. The live recording in this episode was recorded on Sunday, January 10, 2016. This episode is going out on Monday, November 7, 2016. (And yes, I chose to release the audio from one of our more lighthearted movie nights specifically to lighten the mood during this election season.)

Show Notes:

  • I gave myself the giggles trying to create a funny intro for our live recording session.
  • No, I didn’t record any more content after we watched Spaceballs.
  • No explicit content in this episode (unless you count the description of symptoms of alcoholism).
  • Theme song for Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew: “Look Busy,” by Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com.

Movie Chat 004: Routes to Creativity

This week, Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew returns to Stu’s place for an in-depth discussion of two black-and-white movies that both relate, in different ways, to the creative process: Federico Fellini’s 8 1/2, and Christopher Nolan’s Following. The panel discussion was recorded on Sunday, October 23, 2016. This episode is going out on Monday, October 24, 2016.

Show Notes:

  • This is my longest episode of Movie Chat to date; we had quite a bit to say!
  • Disregard the “Explicit” tag – this episode has been cleaned up. The first time you hear the “bleep” sound effect, that’s actually an edit point where I thought I had a technical recording issue, but the other two times are bleeped curse words.

Movie Chat 003: Batman Vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew is back from hiatus! This episode features an informal panel discussion about how several members of the Movie Night Crew (different members than the ones who appeared in previous episodes) reacted to this past summer’s Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The panel discussion was recorded on Sunday, August 14, 2016. This episode is going out on Monday, October 10, 2016.

This episode contains strong language.

DDoP 2016 Ep20: Movie Chat 002: The Seven Samurai

This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Tuesday, August 23. (My goal is to get Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew out on a regular biweekly release schedule, so this should have been my DDoP episode for Monday the 22nd, but I didn’t look back at my previous blog posts and realize I’d released my first Movie Chat episode on a Monday until after I’d already uploaded my podcast file for the day on Monday evening. Oops. Live and learn.)

The main content of this episode was recorded on Sunday, February 28, 2016. This is the episode of Movie Chat that I mentioned, and promised to get out this month, in a previous episode of Thread Snippings. In preparation for that night, I wrote a mini-essay on our featured movie of the evening (The Seven Samurai), its relationship with Star Wars, and my progress on my Jedi costume up to that point. I read that episode on-pod in this episode.

Show Notes:

  • I mentioned on-pod that I would be sure to include a picture of myself in the show notes, so here it is. This picture was taken the night we made this recording (Feb. 28).

DDoP 2016 Ep05: Movie Chat 001: Origins of Move Night

It’s been a long time coming, and I’m very excited to debut my very first episode of Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew! This is my Dog Days of Podcasting episode for Monday, August 8. Sorry for the extra-long episode. The vast majority of my Dog Days of Podcasting episodes will be within the 3-5 minute range.

Unlike the other shows I’m recording for Dog Days of Podcasting, Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew is co-hosted by me and a rotating cast of my friends. We often get together to watch movies, and I often record the discussions we have before and after the movies.

Show Notes:

  • “The Freshman” (1925) is available for free on YouTube here. (In fact, that was how we watched it on the night we recorded this episode.)
  • Theme song for Movie Chat with the Movie Night Crew: “Look Busy,” by Kevin MacLeod at incompetech.com.
