    Episode 213 - Minisode 213

    Oof that whole story is weird and uncomfortable. The original is very odd. I never understood why they made the queen dance to death in fiery iron shoes. It just seemed excessive and also weird for wedding entertainment. I really enjoyed Big Gross Movies coverage of Snow White

    Oh ok I was listening at like 2 am trying to go to sleep and was confused . It would be the case that a major blow out happened and I was just in my corner typing away about facts I googled lol!

    Episode 213 - Shanghai Surprise (w/ Jordan Rubin)

    Oh totally. I think it's a very personal choice and I don't blame anyone for what they decide. I try to live my life by this great Amy Poehler quote from her book Yes Please. "Good for you, Not for me". It works for most things and I've found that I'm genuinely happier because of it.

    I take umbrage to the idea we were fighting on the message boards. As far as I could see it was business as usual. There was a lot of discussion about baseball that I didn't understand but I don't think that got particularly heated? Am I missing something?

    It's really not about the money for me so much as I feel like when I do buy their stuff (even older stuff in some people's case) it's like I'm saying " I support you and I don't care what you did. " That's not always how I feel and it definitely depends on the context. Also sometimes it honestly upsets me to see them as someone who has a good number of people in my life who have suffered abuse or sexual assault. That's just me though and in general I take it case by case .

    Me either! I know so many people who talk about what an amazing fundamental movie it is/ was for them but somehow I've just never seen it. I would love to see it with you guys!

    Agreed. However I also agree that sometimes you can separate the work from the artist it's just where you personally say this is something I cannot forgive. It's very tricky. I love Picasso but abhor Picasso. However he's dead and I'm never going to be in a position to own a piece of his work.

    I love this one series of communist ones that are of Russia and China. It looks like a delightful story of two comrades falling in love and raising children together. Look! They love to read together! They have a garden! A family portrait! ( with terrifying children. )

    Yeah that's how I am usually too but I guess the stories I've heard about Penn just make me feel even worse?

    If they were glow in the dark like he said theres a good chance they are radioactive. It would have used Radioluminescent paint or some kind of radium laced dye? If it was phosphorescent paint the glow wouldn't last very long. Right? I don't know anything about science but I know this was around the time of the Radium Girls suing their bosses for compensation because of their health issues.

    Episode 213 - Shanghai Surprise (w/ Jordan Rubin)

    Am I the only one who was uncomfortable watching this given the abuse allegations against Sean Penn and how he supposedly beat Madonna? I've been trying really hard make an effort not to buy media that has abusive/predatory people (men or women) in them this year and I only watched it because it was free on YouTube. So maybe I'm the only one who will have an issue with it because I'm trying to be more conscientious about who I support with my money but I wanted to ask if I was alone in feeling a bit uncomfortable.
  12. Also would you guys be ok with maybe watching full on Broadway shows? I know some of them have done cast recordings because I've seen a few on PBS. If I can find ones like that that are short maybe we can enjoy the theater and feel cultured!
  13. I have actually seen this!! It's been years because I rented it from Blockbuster
  14. Oh my god have so much fun !!! As a giant nerd London is the Dream. I hope that you get to live out whatever your most likely much cooler fantasy is in your time off! ( trying to get a signed copy of any book by Lucy Worsley the head curator of the Historic Palaces while at Hampton Court if you must know is mine). Take some pictures for us if you can! Also I am so in love with the Clash and now am just listening to them on a loop so thanks for that! ... Ironically I might currently be wearing my Death or Glory shirt
  15. I would really like that! I think maybe a non musical theme per month or something would be neat. I know and there are some iconic movie soundtracks that go with non musical movies. I think @taylorannephoto mentioned that when we talked about it in a mini episode. So I would really like to explore that too . How music plays a part in film. In this week's episode of I Hate It But I Love It (another great podcast) they talked about Practical Magic which is a personal favorite. They mentioned something I had never noticed until then but the music choices are either full on literal with Faith Hill's This Kiss playing when Sally kisses her soon to be husband or just off for the scene like in the exorcism where they thought it should have been more dramatic and scary. I would never have noticed because I've been watching it since I was a kid and I fully admit I have rose colored glasses when it comes to this film but they brought up great points! So that's something I wonder about other movies. LIke I know that Home Alone had an AMAZING score and just... The music adds depth to they film you know? So now I wonder if bad movie music is a new trope to look for (Usually if I hear that sexy 80's jazz sax I worry) or if good music means that your in good hands?
