Pepperland is open! This episode we turn to a unique animated classic starring (sort of) The Beatles. From the psychedelic style to personal influences to music, to the ill-fated, ill-concieved cancelled 2009 remake, we take a deep dive into the universe of Yellow Submarine!
Ugghhh… Welcome to the… FIFTH… Covid watch cast, where we spill on what we’ve watched in the quarantine. In this one, we’re a tad more pissed off, but still going and absorbing media to cope. We talk everything from Marvel to Soderbergh to Columbo to Netflix reality dating shows, to The Faculty, it’s a WIDE range. So get yourself vaxxed if you haven’t (especially now that the Pfeizer vaccine is officially FDA approved), mask up for others’ protection, and stay safe out there everyone.
The Omniplex is open! We’re coming at you with Pride a little late this year, but with the question: why shouldn’t it go beyond June? With that in mind this week we talk themes of representation, who gets to play queer characters onscreen, and what is gender anyway? So sit back and enjoy this extension of Pride Month.
Turn up that bass, The Omniplex is open! This week we’re exploring the extra space in our upgraded format as we talk Concept Albums. When bands feel the need to explore their artistry and creativity, a Concept Album is born! Zephyr, Austin, and Al dig into their playlists as try out some of their favorite bands’ more experimental works. Come on the first of many musical journeys with us!
Ready for some semi-recent nostalgia? (We like to think it’s semi-recent since the era we’re covering is technically in this millennium, but GOD, just humor us..) This week at the Omniplex, we’re covering the strange transitional era between 1996 and 2006. We examine the trends as well as the ups and downs of each. So strap in for this wild Disney ride (a few of which were made into movies) through an age of sequels, remakes, book films, and tv adaptations.
The Omniplex is open and streaming! This week we go in depth service by service on the internet stream-o-sphere, and how it has permanently changed the way we absorb and collect our entertainment. Pros and Cons abound, we give ALL the dirt on all the major services and options if you still favor the physical media.
There’s finally.. FINALLY… a light at the end of the tunnel. The Omniplex is open, welcome to our 4th.. and hopefully final.. Quarantine watch cast. This is a special one, as it denotes the one-year anniversary of when the quarantine (in America, anyways) started. And since the vaccines are rolling out and gaining speed, we finally a year later have some hope for some semblance of normalcy in the near future. Until then, Zephyr, Albert, and Austin present what they have watched in the final days of the mass quarantine, some some spectacular, some horribly, horribly bad.
