Continuing our discussion of all things David Bowie, we read the book AND watched the BBC TV adaptation AND listened to the not-really-soundtrack album of Hanif Kureishi's The Buddha Of Suburbia! Bowie's album based on the soundtrack he wrote for the TV series is one of the least-heard works in his catalog. So, was all this work worth it? Yes, mostly! Give a listen!
We are back with a look at this remarkable 2003 album from the Tuscon, Arizona-based band Calexico! We discuss its lasting impact, killer songs, and a little Muhammad Ali for good measure? All this and more!
Guys, we're back with a bit of a tribute episode. Our friend Brian loved this 1973 David Bowie album, and we do too, so we dig in and talk about what makes it so good. This one's for you, Bri.
After a LOOOONG break (sorry about that...) we're finally back with our conversation about Whit Stillman's 1998 film. We were honored and thrilled to have our friend Amy on the show to help us break this one down. Get on the Love Train, folks!
For this episode, we tackle our first work produced this century! It's Jeff Chang's 2014 book of cultural history "Who We Be." Take a listen to two white people try to not be awkward in a conversation that is mostly about racism!
We are back, and this time we throw two fingers at the 1994 Pop Will Eat Itself masterpiece Dos Dedos Mis Amigos! Here's your invitation, are you in or out or in or out? (*take 2, with less appalling editing*)
This time out we tackle the 1988 shoulda-been-a-classic Robert De Niro/Charles Grodin comedy. Yaphet Kotto! Joe Pantoliano! Random Philip Baker Hall! The dad from My So-Called Life! And of course the legendary Dennis Farina!
