    Holy Precognition!

    William Gibson wrote the screenplay based on his own story. and he is a pretty good futurist writer still. I highly recommend his recent trilogy starting with Pattern Recognition, and the one he is currently writing starting with The Peripheral.

    Episode 253.5 - Minisode 253.5

    Branagh's Hamlet set an impossibly high bar I think, including for himself. I can't think of a better film version of Shakespeare. As for Emma Thompson, she is every bit as talented as Branagh, and I feel it unnecessary to take sides over their long-ended relationship. It's a shame that their personal relationship ended in a way that they felt no longer able to work together.

    Sounds like everyone has forgotten Mel Gibson's Hamlet. This made me curious so I went googling bad Shakespeare adaptations and this page has some pretty interesting suggestions, most of which I had not heard of (Cymbeline? Also with Ethan Hawke?).

    Episode 253. Cats

    I have nothing to add, just loved everything about this.
  5. Hello. You may remember me from such posts as "here is some Canadian trivia related to this week's movie" or "I'm baked and I could still make a better movie than this!" You may also recall that even though I'm part of the queer community, I watch a lot (I mean, a LOT) of Hallmark-style low budget made for TV romcoms. When my also queer friend Nicole discovered this, she proposed that we do a podcast about them in a very unusual format: an advent calendar. So since late October, we have been feverishly watching, making notes, and recording episodes of A Podcast in a Queer Tree, which will air a new episode every day in December up to and including the 25th. We have something like 10 episodes left to record and I have a ton of editing left to do but we are on track to get it all done. You can check out our still-in-progress website or check out our Patreon, where the episodes will be hosted. We will have no sponsors and there is no charge to listen to the main episodes. We're basically just doing it for fun and experience and to add a little cheer to our (and hopefully your) holidays. There is a short intro episode available if you need further convincing. Hope you enjoy. xo PS- we also made bingo cards thanks to some maniac online who has a script that generates bingo cards. So enjoy that.

    As a publisher I deal with one of the many companies that Amazon has purchased (CreateSpace) to publish my books both in print and to their kindle store. I expect there are several similar companies for distributing independent films, music, clips, etc. I would literally rather eat my own balls than watch this movie. Looking forward to the episode.

    Episode 252 - Governor Gabbi

    Ah man, I must look that up, I always enjoyed Prez (who also appeared here and there in the Sandman-era Vertigo titles) but I haven't read Russell's book. Loved his Flintstones title, very smart stuff. There were so many short-lived and one-shot superhero comics in the early to mid 70s. There used to be a DC fanzine or internal publication called Cancelled Comics Cavalcade where they would run pages of issues from comics that had been drawn but then got cancelled without publishing the issue in colour. My favourite Crazy Joe Simon Idea from then was the Green Team, a friendly quartet of millionaires who wore jumpsuits covered in pockets containing bundles of cash. They would just kind of roll up and solve every problem with money.

    I don't know if I misunderstood some news story that I saw yesterday, but is this what happens with the US senate? One of my exes was a baker who went to culinary school. It's considered a specialty, so depending on the school you would all learn a basic kind of foundational course and then if you wanted to pursue baking as a "major" I guess your graduation would include the certification of being a baker, which depending on where you live or work, can be a unionized position with pay bands. Of course, much like other kinds of post-secondary education, the value of culinary school is debatable, as the late Anthony Bourdain and others liked to say. It's perfectly possible to become a great chef or baker without going to culinary school at all, but going there could give you some useful techniques, experiences in cooking situations you might not normally encounter on your own (eg., cooking for large events), and industry contacts.

    Do people want HDTGM to do another live episode?

    Absolutely. Didn't do the first because I can't stand the musical Cats, but generally I'd be up for most anything.

    I have not watched this movie and probably won't, but I laughed hard at Jason saying "And then HARD CUT: She's wearing a fedora!" Thank you.

    Episode 186 - Geostorm: LIVE!

    Watching it now on Showcase here in Canada. Probably my 5th or 6th time. Feels a little extra relevant in 2020. GEOSTORM!!

    Episode 250.5 — Minisode 250.5

    Great talk with Jason about the long tail of Covid. Eternally grateful to be living where I am but deeply sad for my American friends (which frankly I have been for decades, but especially now). I highly recommend Andy Slavitt's podcast In The Bubble, he has medical experts on regularly to assess the current state of the pandemic and the US response.

    Just pretend you live in Maine now. That's what it is always like.
