  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    You had me at incest and then i stopped caring at nihilism.

  • Foster Breadford

    We were told to get edgier in order to save the ratings

  • Foster Breadford

    Next week is in 3D

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I thought it was a fad, but you’re proving me wrong. I said the same thing about radio going to talkies too…shows what I know.

  • Tim R.R. Something
  • Tim R.R. Something

    38 Double D would work better.

  • Jessabel Cain

    I dont clap along.

  • Foster Breadford

    Not with the budgets we get

  • Foster Breadford

    It’s really fun when there’s 3 of you in a sound booth trying to make a song sound live.

  • Jessabel Cain

    Muh-law-wee. we’ve been over this.

  • Jessabel Cain

    *laugh track*

  • Slate_Fistcrunch
  • Foster Breadford

    But Chris has still never read a comment section

  • Jessabel Cain

    figures,

  • Jessabel Cain

    CHEMEX!!!!

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I still don’t get this love for dubstep.

  • Jessabel Cain

    its meant to be felt

  • Jessabel Cain

    I wish I could make you a cup of coffee Zis.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    They desperately need a female voice. Hint.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    There is so much testosterone flowing through VL. I agree.

  • Jessabel Cain

    Zissou should come to Austin for SXSW film festival and I could make him a cup of coffee and do a special coffee podcast.

  • Foster Breadford

    We’ll have one on our big Lebanon expose coming soon

  • Foster Breadford

    I think of our show as the equivalent of drinking a protein shake

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Should be called Cactus Lasagna, because everyone on it is a prick.

  • Jessabel Cain

    Adult World

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Whoa ho ho. Tim is out for blood today.

  • Jessabel Cain

    Geez.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    You wanted edgy…

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Me? I’m milquetoast baby.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    dou·ble en·ten·dre
    ˌdo͞obl änˈtändrə,ˌdəbl änˈtändrə/
    noun
    noun: double entendre; plural noun: double entendres
    a word or phrase open to two interpretations, one of which is usually risqué or indecent.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Well that’s a lovely image now.

  • Jessabel Cain

    acquired taste

  • Foster Breadford

    Jesus

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Scarjo worked? I was afraid she couldn’t handle it.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    HE did it. He’s micro aggressing. Too much Sagamanus.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Typical victim blaming.

  • Jessabel Cain

    I thought he just said teriyaki pie

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Now that I’ve alienated everybody, I must be going.

  • Foster Breadford

    Heavens to Betsy, Birdy!

  • Foster Breadford

    Hello I must be going

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Tim I think you need a hug.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    She’s got one pouty expression, like that Frodo Baggins actor with his stricken look.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Where’s Walden?

  • Foster Breadford

    Birthday hug

  • Foster Breadford

    He skyped me right after Chris left and was possibly too inebriated for the show

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    A live intervention. Coming soon.

  • Foster Breadford

    He has some sort of Jimmy Fallon story he’s wanted to tell for the last month

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Heh, it’s our secret now.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Poor guy. Fallon? He’s far worse than I realized.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Secret = image seared into brain that won’t ever go away.

  • Jessabel Cain

    great movie

  • Foster Breadford

    Never seen it.

  • Foster Breadford

    I’m thinking it will be easier to have these other guests on once *redacted*

  • Jessabel Cain

    I enjoyed it.

  • Jessabel Cain

    fuck, i got lost

  • Jessabel Cain

    twitter.

  • Foster Breadford

    I rarely remember these well enough to follow along with what you’re reacting to.

  • Jessabel Cain

    capitalism something this that other…..

  • Jessabel Cain

    opiates. marx lol.

  • Foster Breadford

    Oh boy

  • Jessabel Cain

    yeah.

  • Foster Breadford

    It’s a lot better when we get political with Walden there.

  • Jessabel Cain

    i dunno who that is

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    *redacted*

  • Jessabel Cain

    i can’t even tell you two apart

  • Foster Breadford

    Well, anyway, the Lebanon episode will be the new standard for podcasting going forward.

  • Jessabel Cain

    oh boy

  • Slate_Fistcrunch
  • Jessabel Cain

    that clears it all up

  • Foster Breadford

    I’m the one on the right.

  • Jessabel Cain

    OIC

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Walden has lived most everywhere from Zanzibar to Barclay Square.

  • Foster Breadford

    If you go back to the first 3 or 4 episodes, we would introduce ourselves.

  • Tarmac492.1

    The VL SHow. More comments than a beauty salon filled with pudgy hausfraus.

  • Jessabel Cain

    You say each others name and such but it gets lost in translation while your chit chatting. you mumble more so i can tell sometimes.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I have a tough time getting into the Coen Brothers comedies. Except Raising Arizona. Which is a certified masterpiece. One of Cage’s most nuanced performances.

  • Foster Breadford

    In my mind I don’t mumble more. Chris is generally more soft spoken.

  • Foster Breadford

    What about Hudsucker?

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Dee rips his hair out about them mumbling their live reads.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Someone’s Bday? Birthdays are overrated.

  • Foster Breadford

    We were really good for the last month of rehearsals.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Amen to that. 365 days though until it’s all fucking over.

  • Jessabel Cain

    enunciate.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I think you just found your Exec Producer.

  • Jessabel Cain

    producers do ALL the work.

  • Foster Breadford

    You must have us confused.

  • Tarmac492.1

    One of the best of their comedies. Beautiful looking film. Now Burn After Reading I did not love. The Ladykillers???? Not a huge fan of O Brother. A Serious Man, which I think was sold as a comedy was, ummm, …

  • Slate_Fistcrunch
  • Jessabel Cain

    perhaps. no matter. you say the same things anyway.

  • Foster Breadford

    Haha I adore A Serious Man. Ladykillers was okay. I like O Brother but not as much as the rest of humanity.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Shots fired!

  • Tarmac492.1

    Birthdays–the Sam Mendes of life events.

  • Foster Breadford

    We’re looking for a new Exec Producer as of a minute ago.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Look, just like always there’s one rule in life. It’s suits vs t-shirts. Don’t trust the suits.

  • Foster Breadford

    Hahaha

  • Jessabel Cain

    #truth

  • Tarmac492.1

    What about Burn AFter Reading?

  • Foster Breadford

    I think it’s funny but I don’t return to it much. Excellent Brad Pitt death scene if nothing else.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Cant disagree. Extremely shocking actually.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Are we not counting Fargo as the dark comedy it is?

  • Tarmac492.1

    That is a fair point. Very fair and valid.

  • Jessabel Cain

    tonya.

  • Foster Breadford

    I will sell the Mind Blogger pitch for an EP credit.

  • Jessabel Cain

    30 seconds

  • Tarmac492.1

    Fargo is no Raising Arizona. “crazed yodeling to automatically validate his point”

  • Tarmac492.1

    I like your high standards.

  • Foster Breadford

    Hour-long procedural. She’s a blogger or whatever. Really it just has that sort of thinks-it’s-cool procedural name. It’ll get syndicated on Ion.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Round is funny.

  • Foster Breadford

    Slang Slinger as well.

  • Jessabel Cain

    throw in an approving best friend with unbelievable life style and attributes and you’ve got it.

  • Foster Breadford

    Do what you wish once I buy Warren Buffett’s theater.

  • Jessabel Cain

    good luck with that.

  • Tarmac492.1

    I also do like Lebowski. Hmm, maybe a bad argument by me.

  • Foster Breadford

    Do you like The Man Who Wasn’t There?

  • Tarmac492.1

    Like joining in midway through the eighth Dr Who and saying “Did I miss anything?”

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I’ll pretend you were asking me. I feel like I missed the point on that one. I need to rewatch it.

  • Jessabel Cain

    awesome. thanks. appreciate that.

  • Foster Breadford

    That’s in my top 3 from them. It took me a couple viewings, though.

  • Foster Breadford

    Also probably my favorite of the Carter Burwell themes.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Just a little joke.

  • Jessabel Cain

    mine too. dish it, take it 🙂

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Looks like I’m in it for the long haul.

  • Foster Breadford

    In 2020 or so we can start podcasting about their movies maybe.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Never saw it all the way through, oddly enough. Wonderful look. I def need to revisit. Might have still been recuperating from too much Ketamine in the 90’s when it came out.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Depending on what happens on the 26th. I might want to revise things.

  • Jessabel Cain

    was goodnight mommy not good?

  • Foster Breadford

    Uh oh

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Pedal to the metal baby.

  • Foster Breadford

  • Foster Breadford

    You can probably talk about it here. No one is looking.

  • Jessabel Cain

    O.O

  • Foster Breadford

    I’ve heard nothing but good things but I don’t think it ever played here.

  • Foster Breadford
  • Jessabel Cain

    well thanks guys. pins and needles for the next one.

  • Tarmac492.1

    The Coen Bros should take a shot at King’s The Dark Half.

  • Foster Breadford

    You like The Man Who Wasn’t There, right?

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    The 26th is the results of that copyright claim that’s so fucking bogus. If the claim stands up that’s going to change how everything is recorded and will probably cause a new channel for live shows.

  • Foster Breadford

    I enjoyed Secret Window, Secret Garden more. I love the name Thad Beaumont, though. Hard to top that.

  • Jessabel Cain

    I do. yes.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    And at that point it might as well be a join forces sort of venture.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Very Literary.

  • Jessabel Cain

    I generally feel inadequate to discuss movies though on here.

  • Foster Breadford

    You shouldn’t. I just tried to talk about Marxism.

  • Foster Breadford

    Oh I see. That seems like probably a smart way to go regardless, honestly.

  • Jessabel Cain

    i caught that. when you say something people nod and smile and say yes.

  • Foster Breadford

    Tough crowd this week.

  • Foster Breadford

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Yeah probably. That’s why I’m getting out of the copyright game entirely. Videos of our sexy faces from here on out.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    That’s how I feel when Zissou and Tarmac are going on and on about god knows what and I just secretly watched TMNT last night.

  • Foster Breadford

    Burwell did an interview recently where he said Miller’s Crossing is the only score he’s done that he wouldn’t change a thing on if he could.

  • Foster Breadford

    We just need one sexy face to sell to the masses.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Welcome to the spotlight Gold Button.

  • Foster Breadford

    Oh brother

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    I think you’ll like what I have planned for the pilot. Solo shots man!

  • Foster Breadford

    I’ll start lifting weights.

  • Foster Breadford

    What was his name in Secret Window? Mort something? Not as good but I guess he was more of a secret hick.

  • Foster Breadford

  • Jessabel Cain

    nice choice. i like that sonnenfeld guy with the coehns times.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Mort Rainey?

  • Foster Breadford

    That sounds right. I was going to say Mort Ramsey.

  • Foster Breadford

    Very energetic camera. I can’t even imagine what Barton Fink would look like with him.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    You know way back when. I was on a first date and we got to the multiplex too early or late for the showing of Let the Right One In so we had an hour to kill. So we snuck into Twilight. I had no idea it was Burwell, but I was thinking man this soundtrack ain’t bad.

  • Foster Breadford

    Agreed! Burwell is great. I’d rather see him get those gigs than Desplat.

  • Jessabel Cain

    like soddenberg run and gun

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    You can’t talk movies my ass.

  • Jessabel Cain

    *runs away*

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Oh for sure.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Mort Rainey. Had to look it up, though. Ever getting a Library Policeman flick?

  • Foster Breadford

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Jesus Christ man! I’m trying to work my way through a podcast here. VL is going to take 2 days.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Don’t do me like that.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Listening now as I sniff the pair of sneakers that the cute Asian on my floor uses at the gym. Although she cut her hair today and I dont approve 🙁

  • Tarmac492.1

    The VL show needs to be on PBS.

  • Tarmac492.1

    From IMDB, so I could be wrong. Havent read the book since college which was, like, 5 years ago since I graduated. Yeah, I was on the 15 year plan.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Proprietor is an excellent word.

  • Jessabel Cain

    would that it t’were so simple……..sorry i forgot to throw it in earlier..

  • Tarmac492.1

    I think Jim Norton said it best about Shkreli. I think he called him a “hateable cunt.”

  • Jessabel Cain

    HBD!

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    lol secret is out! Thank you Jess.

  • Jessabel Cain

    very welcome sir. have a good one.

  • Slate_Fistcrunch

    Thanks!

  • Tarmac492.1

    epic podcast. Good stuff. Enjoyed the differing subjects. I want to watch more short films. Most I see I like, but I never watch too many. Watched a few Hal Hartley ones on Fandor and they were good. Fandor has a ton of shorts. Decent streaming site. Especially for low budget horror.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Let the Right One In, Interesting first date flick.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    It’s important to get the last word.

  • franks_television

    I did not like any of the live action Oscar shorts. The funny one would be my favorite I guess.

  • franks_television

    I just read that last week and couldn’t remember.

  • ponyboy_360

    Another enjoyable VL Episode.
    You “slang slingers.”
    I’m eagerly anticipating “Adoptation”.
    I really liked “My Rotting Body”.
    Hope to here more about “Naomi Jones”.
    Peace.

  • Sagamanus

    Chemex! Chemex! Chemex! Dorsal flex haiku!

  • Sagamanus

    I will recommend this Zissou as you are a fellow Albanian, in your own words.

  • Foster Breadford

    I’m glad you liked it! I haven’t looked at it in years so that’s great to hear. We’re just finishing all the final work on Adoptation then jumping full speed ahead into NJ so I’m sure there’ll be plenty of updates as we go.

  • Foster Breadford

    Not a very uplifting bunch.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Hell is other Albanians.

    Sounds great man!
    All the best moving forward!
