The Napoleon Dynamite Podcast
These podcasts just keep getting more and more funner to make. I feel like my spelling and grammer has suffered though, communicating souly in the verbal relm. But it small price to pay, not nearly as costly like auto-correct though, that stuff make you lazy and bankrupt your sole.
So this week we are turning our focus to a little film, you may have heard of it, Napoleon Dynamite – the little film that could. Both Zyp and I have great memories to accompany this film and go to great lengths to communicate that to you. I fancied the time that I got to chat with Jon Gries (Uncle Rico) and all the while I just happened to have a tape recorder catching the whole thing – quite convenient. If that isn’t convenient enough for you, our journey takes us from Jon Gries and his new project, Another Man’s Gun, which is a classic western film in the development phase, all the way to Aphex Twin‘s music which may or may not be up your alley, but speaking of alleys. Kristie, Kristie Alley. Am I right?
So buckle your seatbelts but not too tight because you’re going to want to get at your pockets because if you’re like me, it’s really hard to get at your wallet if you’re buckled in too tight and then you’re fumbling around while the drive thru attendant is waiting for you to pay for the Whopper combo. And speaking combos, to compliment the conversation I had Jon Gries, Christian Zyp and I also sat down with author of the 33 1/3 book on Aphex Twin’s Selected Ambient Works Vol II, Marc Weidenbaum. He’s also the man behind Disquiet.com so if you’re into the ambient genre please check out his work over there. Marc Weidenbaum‘s book is the newest in the 33 1/3 cannon and we’ll be giving away copies in the month of February 2014. You’ll have to listen to win but of course you can also buy the book via 333sound.com or Amazon will have it too.
Other stops in today’s map – the UK’s Tears for Fears and an industry theme music juggernaut that you may have not heard of named Mike Post. So I guess you could say that things are getting pretty serious over here at NewbsRadio. Enjoy!
