Podcastin’ Away Part Deux

Hello readers!

Apologies for the delay in posting; I recently began writing for a new site! If you haven’t seen Filmoria before, please do check it out. It’s a UK-based site that includes news and reviews for movies and games, as well as special features like Must See Movies and a section on Cult Classics. I’ve been writing a little bit of everything for Filmoria, but my favorite post so far is a Must See Movies look at Singin’ in the Rain.

I’ve also been making the podcasting rounds, enjoying numerous guest appearances on some fantastic podcasts. I’ve made two appearances on The Large Association of Movies Blogs (LAMB) podcast, LAMBCast, in the last few months. In the episode known as Brian Roan vs. the World my colleague and friend Brian Roan of DearFilm does a great job of debating the merits of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World with a bunch of diehard fans, including yours truly. I also participated in the 6th LAMBpardy! podcast, a Jeopardy!-inspired film trivia competition. I have to admit I got my butt royally whooped, but I did my best and almost swept one category before suddenly going tabula rasa in my brain.

Perhaps my favorite guest spot ever, however, has to be my visit to The Matineecast. Host Ryan McNeil and I talked about High Fidelity and movie blogs we love. It was a great time, and a productive discussion about everything from whether or not High Fidelity is a “guys movie” to how the film holds up in comparison to the book.

Lastly, I’d like to thank everyone at Man, I Love Films for giving me a space to write Top 10 Lists and weekly editorials. It was a great experience, and I appreciate it very much.

Two more podcast guest spots are on their way, so stay tuned everybody!

 

Podcastin’ Away

Hi folks!  I’ve recently made some guest appearances on podcasts hosted by fellow film bloggers.  I had a lovely time appearing on The Demented Podcast, where I discussed Repo! The Genetic Opera and All That Jazz with Nick Jobe and Steve Honeywell.  On the podcast you can hear me praise Singin’ in the Rain, diss Hayden Christiansen, and nerd out about Joss Whedon and Anthony Stewart Head.  It’s The Demented Podcast #33, aptly named “Paul Sorvino? What the F*@#!“.  If you check it out you get the added bonus of hearing me embarrass myself trying to conquer The Tower, a fantastic (and fantastically tough) game that kicked my butt.  You can find Nick at his awesome site Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob (“R2D2”); and Steve can be found at 1001Plus, where the crazy bastard blogs about his attempt to see every movie listed in the “1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die” series.

Also, back in December I participated in a discussion of Lars von Trier’s “Melancholia” for LAMBcast, the Large Association of Movie Blogs‘ podcast.  We had a very passionate and thoughtful discussion, including debates about von Trier’s motives, death, suicide, and the apocalypse.  If you’d like to have a listen, you can find it here (it’s LAMBcast #98).

Be forewarned, folks: spoilers abound in the podcasts!
