    Old episodes gone?

    Damn. Is there no way to retrieve the data, did anyone else save the downloads?

    Future of the Show?

    ... Well. Looks like we're getting a new co-host after all.

    Future of the Show?

    I, uh... wrote a thing about Faraci and the Canon. Just needed to express my personal feelings about all this, and I thought I could share them with you guys. I apologize for the length.

    Future of the Show?

    That's not even taking into consideration the careers of anyone who's worked on Birth.Movies.Death, or Devin's own career. Even if he's innocent, the accusation has already had a tangible effect; leaving a solid taint on his reputation. By proxy, the whole site will suffer for it.

    Future of the Show?

    ... Who else could fill Devin's shoes? And would Amy herself even want to replace him to keep the show going?

    Future of the Show?

    Probably the best take on this whole thing so far.

    Future of the Show?

    I hear both Devin and the site are offline while this whole thing is investigated.

    Future of the Show?

    I gotta say... man, this whole thing has bummed me out. I love The Canon. Amy and Devin have great synergy, they have a great dynamic- a Canon without Devin doesn't click with me. But I'd understand why there wouldn't be one after today. It's understandable and massively depressing, on so many levels.

    She also owns a chocolate factory. Not even kidding.

    Knock Out Poll (Unofficial!)

    Personally... I'd like to avoid Pennies from Heaven or Re-Animator. They're indulgence picks and it's their show, they had the right to argue on their behalf and introduce a little personal feeling into the mix. Especially the former. We need more ambitious screw ups with heart and soul, I swear, to serve as humbling reminders of any and all artistic pursuits. Although, gun to my head, if I had to choose... Hm. Again, whatever personal feelings some might have... I kind of want movies like Boyz in the Hood, Working Girl and Chi-Raq in the Canon. We need more diverse voices in our cinema, and like I said with Pennies I'll take the flawed but ambitious and earnest over the fine and dandy and lacking in real soul or perspective.

    Episode 96: THE BAD SEED

    You know... I feel compelled to root for the underdog here. I'm with Devin and Amy on this: The Bad Seed might not necessarily be the greatest movie of its kind, but I'll be damned if it isn't a perfect avatar of the pre-self aware, irony-free camp. It's a camp we're sorely missing nowadays, and we need more of its kind. The ending is jarring, sure, but it's the kind of jarring that could only have come from the strange and weirdly one-track mindsets of 50's filmmaking. Besides, you have to give Patty McCormack so many props. It's difficult enough for child actors to affect a cool and creepy performance like this, and she pulls it off so well she sort of set the bar for creepy children in fiction in general. Well, at least before the twins from The Shining or Damien from The Omen came along- but it still counts for something.

    The Wicker Man (1973)

    I support this. The movie has a history, a reputation, as the "Citizen Kane of Horror Films." I believe it.

    Casablanca vs. Gone with the Wind

    Implying a movie famous for its witty comebacks and pithy sayings somehow lacks either. "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn." For the common person today, literally the one thing the movie is known for.

    Knock-Out Suggestions

    That might be "sliiiightly" disingenuous. Devin and Amy would certainly protest the notion the Canon is less about qualifying films as "worthy" and more about having an "interesting hour-long podcast." It's a midge condescending there, Susan, regardless of your own taste in cinema.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street

    It's more the prototype versus the codifier, really.
