The Dork Forest

Dork on Dork Dialog with Jackie Kashian. I am interested in whatever dorky thing you want to talk about.

My guests are Gariana Abeyta, projectionist at the ArcLight Cinema and the Silent Movie Theatre, (@garianaabeyta on twitter) and twitter monster Alison Agosti (@Just_Alison on twitter). This show is a little GRAPHIC. It is not Gariana’s fault. It’s Alison’s fault. And… my own. This is an admittedly weird ep. I kinda love it. Not even kinda.

 

BTW: THE DOORBELL RANG… at 5:35ish… you hear the doorbell ring, I say, “I never do this… I’m going to PAUSE the show” and then… I DIDN’T hit record again and it’s 20 minutes later when I realize. THEN... BONUS: you hear Patrick Brady with the explanation! He's GREAT. Let's all admit it.

Also, In this ep,
I prove again that I still don’t know who anyone is.

 

 Mulholland – this is “the man’s” version (or you could see Chinatown)

 

Rubber – sheriff (there’s “lieutenant”) Yeah. It does look fantastic.

Dogtooth – streaming on Netflix

Placenta Hippie eating thing – I thought about linking it … you can Google if you want cuz it’s too graphic already.
15 min of taping… I pour coffee loud, Gariana stirs too loud.
M. Night Shyamalan – is from India

Brody Stevens has control over his bodily functions. Zack Bro-mance example – watch Between Two Ferns

Xbox – Fable III

The Big Easy Soundtrack

Ned Beatty

Gift of the Magi

Island of the Blue Dolphins

Unfamiliar Fishes

Live, from a Shoebox – Alison’s old podcast that you can listen to lots!

Harry Potter Deathly Hallows Part 2 Trailer

Erin Foley

Martha Kelly
Mary Jo Pehl

    in re: placental matters (and only utterly coincidental that the citation comes from Wisconsin)...because things come (or are after-borne) in threes, doncha know...

    from http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-12711091

    The first feminist interpretation of Frankenstein was by Ellen Moers, who read
    Shelley's novel as a sublimated afterbirth, says Diane Hoeveler, from Marquette
    University in Wisconsin, US.

    "The author expels her own guilt both for having caused her mother's death and
    for having failed to produce a healthy son for Percy, as his legal wife Harriet
    had done three months earlier.

    "For Moers, the novel's strength was to present the 'abnormal, or monstrous,
    manifestations of the child-parent tie' and in so doing, 'to transform the
    standard Romantic matter of incest, infanticide, and patricide into a
    phantasmagoria of the nursery'."

    Scott O'Dell, the ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS guy, wrote a number of interesting YA novels that I remember fondly, though I think only SING DOWN THE MOON also made the shortlist for the Newbery Award (the ALA YA book big deal annually, along with the picture-book Caldecott Award). There was a pretty weak film version of DOLPHINS. The similarly Polynesian Newbery winner CALL IT COURAGE (by Armstrong Sperry, of all machismic names), also excellent, made into a slightly less disappointing (Disney) movie.

    Of course I read all these before I knew I'd be moving to Hawaii and going to the high school founded by the missionaries Sarah Vowell writes about in her new book...I should probably be writing similar books to Vowell's, from RADIO ON onward (with luck, my version of that would be better-received than hers).

    Garner and Landesberg crushes are utterly understandable. I've always liked their work without even finding them sexy.

    THE HANGOVER, despite its excellent cast, is utterly missable, while I like THE BIG EASY much better, I think, than you do...and Ellen Barkin's squint is attractive...Ms. Troll Doll (aka Screechy as well as Squinty McClintock)'s not so much.

    RUBBER sounds a whole lot like a hipster version of THE CAR, one of the most gloriously stupid films ever made. Thanks to relatives, I've seen SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT about seven or eight times...it eventually became a private joke.

    Shyamalan. The first film I saw was SIGNS, and I will never voluntarily see another Shyamalan film.

    So, you think comedians are the only folks whose coworkers are wearing nothing but bear's head hats above the waist? You've been away from cubicle culture too long, Jackie...

    Chaotic, perhaps, but pretty awesome, indeed...
    (captcha: "painful metcu"--who can dispute it?)
