EGC Clambake For June 1, 2006

Here is the Bittorrent link and direct MP3 download for the EGC clambake for June 1, 2006.

I talk about working like a dog; I play a song by Detroit Crunkstar; I list all the various conferences and conventions I’ve had to decline attending; I play a song by the Jackalopes; I talk about movies I’ve seen recently – V For Vendetta, Waking Life, Oldboy, and A History of Violence; I discuss the music of the Hampton Grease Band, Jesus and Mary Chain and Sonic Youth and then play a live track from Sonic Youth; to infinity and beyond.

This episode’s misstatement: referring to V for Vendetta as being “set in the Thatcher era” when I meant “written in.” The timeframe it was set in was, uhhhm, right about now.

    Thanks for the great endorsement for Deliberate Noise. I try to follow in the footsteps of my podcast vampire father, but I always feel as though I am just a pale imitation.

    Detroit Crunkstar are a great bunch of guys and the CD is one that I was addicted to for a while.

    About movies, when ‘A History of Violence’ came out in the theatres, it barely registered on my radar, but not enough to go see it. Aarom Macom from the SciFiDig podcast recommended it and was the main reason why I saw it in the first place. Man I was blown away when I finally checked it out and it was one of the main reasons why I started the Movie Noise. This movie was definitely one of those hidden gems.

    I totally agree with you about M Night Shamaylan’s (sp?) movies. He had his ‘Citizen Kane’ and I’m still waiting for his ‘Touch Of Evil’. Hopefully I’ll still care when it comes out.

    I know you’re busy, but quit being stingy with the podcasts. Less isn’t always more. Oh well, at least you’re more regular than ‘The Chair and Automan’, another great podcast that rarely comes out.


  2. Great episode. The Detroit Crunkstar part is my favorite.

    Detroit Crunkstar blogged my show! That was cool.

    Derek, I riffed on your “stinginess” comment the other day. The implication that there is some reserves of energy that I’m not employing is where the fallacy starts. I’m with you on HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. I can see myself buying it and returning to watch it over and over. I liked the commentary and making of stuff. It was interesting to find out that Viggo did a certain amount of the dressing of the set for the house and diner. The poster of the fishes is something he picked up while driving across America on his way to the shoot. You should listen to that Timescast interview with him. It was really good.

    I was just joking about the stingy comment. Your show is one of the few that I have NEVER written to a CD to listen in my car simply because every time one comes out, I listen to it before it ever gets that far. You may be stingy with the shows, but that’s just because I’m greedy and I want more of them.
