Zissou

Zissou lives in Nebraska with his beautiful cat.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    End of the day, nice work!

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Not my fault this time, actually.

  • I_am_better

    Been writing like hell & I need my music for that. Will listen to this tomorrow when I’m done with shit.

  • Sagamanus

    Am I the only one recommending this even though I haven’t listened to this yet? And Ronin wrote a short story and didn’t tell me about it? I guess I’m just a POS that he shouldn’t tell me…walks off into sunset with a hobo’s pack.

  • Moonriver

    You guys are so funny. COVER THE LENS!

  • Moonriver

    Live studio audience, lmao.
    That’s their own fault. 🙂

  • Moonriver

    It’s a jay, it was a pun.

    Hey, Mrs Ronin… 🙂 this is SO great.
    Zissou, you sound really clear this week. Whatever you did differently, it’s way better.

  • Moonriver

    Chris can science!

  • Moonriver

    The Prestige should have been Jude Law over Hugh Jackman.

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    Who let this douchebag on the podcast?

  • Moonriver

    The homework approach to writing books!

  • Moonriver

    You’re great! Shaddap!

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    GAH! I thought you left!

  • Moonriver

    I had to stop part way through. I’m finishing! How fortuitous!

  • Moonriver

    28 days to form a new [writing] habit or something…

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO-*smash cut to TV show theme*

  • Moonriver

    The 90s are defined by Friends. In a word.

  • Moonriver

    Spoiler: Ronin loved Barton Fink.

  • Moonriver

    Bean tea… (coffee bean) Lmfao!
    Someone told me to try making coffee and blending it with butter and cinnamon and sugar. Apparently it’s good!

  • Moonriver

    Aww! You guys, so cute. Love your show. NEVER APOLOGIZE AGAIN!

  • Moonriver
  • Moonriver

    Hipsters…

  • Moonriver

    Haha!

  • I_am_better

    We’ll talk too – you and I – sooner or later.

  • Stalkeye

    More like “Where’s Ronin”? His audio sounds like it came from two rooms away from Zissy. I’ll listen to the rest of this just to hear their opinions of The Martian.
    I never got around to Interstellar because it seems a bit pretentious IMO.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    And now we meet in an abandoned studio.
    We hear the playback and it seems so long ago.
    And you remember the jingles used to go.
    Oh-a oh
    You were the first one.
    Oh-a oh
    You were the last one.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    I hear the talking of the DJ
    Can’t understand just what does he say?

  • Tim R.R. Something

    A few minutes or so with Mara Rooney.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    And you may ask yourself
    How do I work this?
    And you may ask yourself
    Where is that large automobile?
    And you may tell yourself
    This is not my beautiful house
    And you may tell yourself
    This is not my beautiful cat.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Haven’t seen Interstellar. Read spoilers, still seems dull.

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Interesting…

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    I think you’re onto something here. But I like it as is.

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Didn’t read

  • Tim R.R. Something

    featuring a phone in from Ronin

  • Dr. Geiszler, Kaijuologist
  • Tim R.R. Something

    Oww!

  • I_am_better

    Oh, video calls have been prognosed by scifi literature from like a hundred years ago. And they still can’t get those fucking things to work

  • I_am_better

    “Late Night with Vegetable Lasagna” – NBC would probably buy it

  • I_am_better

    That was a good 30’s radio voice-impression, Rones

  • I_am_better

    “Marijuana” with a “j”….:D

  • I_am_better

    Time travel-story: guy travels into early 1900’s and makes a fortune with modern day fence-technology

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    They needed that.

  • I_am_better

    Holly Hunter got a piano. And she had to endure the naked Harvey Keitel

  • I_am_better

    The ring would probably be cheaper than an iPhone

  • I_am_better

    Maybe I should write that for a movie script

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    If I didn’t post a featured comment, would Tim keep trying to impress me every day?

  • I_am_better

    I really liked “Stretch”

  • Tim R.R. Something

    No.

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Well I featured one anyway.

  • I_am_better

    Orson Welles was in declining health during production. Shortly before he died, he told his biographer, Barbara Leaming, that he had spent the day “playing a toy” in a movie about toys who “do horrible things to each other.” Film historian Joseph McBride quotes Welles saying of his participation: “I play a planet. I menace somebody called Something-or-other. Then I’m destroyed.”

  • Tim R.R. Something

    People might picket.

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Hahaha

  • I_am_better
  • Tim R.R. Something

    Nobody would watch a horror movie called “The iPhone”.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    You have to be careful what you post, is all.

  • I_am_better

    I’m very surprised if they won’t have the creepy girl crawl out of a smartphone screen in the next “Ring”

  • I_am_better

    I think that’s the first time I’ve been told that

  • I_am_better

    Was that a vibrating phone or did someone sit on a duck?

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    The truth is somewhere in the middle.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    The Ringtone

  • There is already a Japanese horror film series called “One missed call” that revolves around phones.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    wow, lol

  • I_am_better

    Remaking Memento is just about the worst idea. It’s so bad, even StudioHEAD would shudder about it

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    But Chris would see it. So I guess there’s the justification for them.

  • I_am_better

    Nobody can read my handwriting

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Even you?

  • I_am_better

    Nobody ELSE. And sometimes not even me. I usually type and print my notes for the podcasts, but then I keep adding handwritten notes and miss like half of them

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    I wanted to make a joke that this was you admitting to time traveling but I can’t find the relevant screenshot from Primer so screw it.

  • I_am_better

    I’m constantly writing my stuff just before deadline

  • I_am_better

    “Season True of True Detective”… Hahahah

  • I_am_better

    Haven’t seen Primer, so that was totally wasted on me

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    Over the course of their time traveling, their handwriting regresses to a more or less unreadable state. Much like I imagine the life of a time traveling fence designer.

  • I_am_better

    Ahhhh. That’s a cool idea actually

  • The Wind-Up Zissou Chronicle

    It’s a cool movie. I think they ran out of film or time at the end though because the last 15 minutes go by way too fast to comprehend at first.

  • Tim R.R. Something

    Tim R.R. Something belly up • an hour ago

    I stole it from Dee.

    belly up Tim R.R. Something • an hour ago

    Well, tell Dee, belly thinks this is one of the best gifs ever, if you think of it.

  • great

  • Tarmac492.1

    THe VLS intro music is good background music for cooking, masturbating and disposing of bodies.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Pizzolatto Writing method–Steal from brilliant, lesser known horror author, toss on cool looking leather jacket and try and look tough, team up with gifted director, take all credit when it comes out great and then fire gifted director. Wash, rinse, repeat.

  • Tarmac492.1

    Pizzolatto’s next is a horror movie/indie film drama taking place in an apt building. It is called “A Cheshire named Hesse”

  • Jacob de Zissou

    Haha the leather jacket! You’re right! Except he got cocky enough in season 2 to try not getting gifted directors.

  • Tarmac492.1

    yup. I misspoke with wash, riinse, repeat. Im drunk now though.,

  • Tarmac492.1

    I saw the horrible American one with Ed Burns.

  • ugh did not know there was a remake. The original is watchable, actually.

  • Tarmac492.1

    There’s always a remake.
