Paranoid Video 1.21- Meta on Meta on Meta Action- Positive Surprises of 2012 and the Year of Meta Filmmaking

A column article, Paranoid Video by: Dylan Garsee, Nick Hanover, Janelle Revord

No longer content to merely review television through the creative use of Friskies gifs and awkward jokes, Dylan Garsee and Nick Hanover have moved on to the internet airwaves, co-hosting CB's own entertainment podcast, Paranoid Video.

Paranoid Video Episode 1.21-

"Meta on Meta on Meta Action"

After a long, sad delay, Paranoid Video is back with the second half of the Surprises of 2012 podcast, as well as a look at Holy Motors and the year of meta-filmmaking and some pop culture resolutions courtesy of Dylan and I as well as frequent guest Janelle.

As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here

After a slightly tipsy introduction and a musical interlude courtesy of Asa Ransom's "New Circles" the gang kicks off the Positive Pop Culture Surprises of 2012 at 9:37. You can read Dylan's Arrow review here, meanwhile here's one of Janelle's Isopod memes:


That segment of the episode runs until 46:51 and gets bumped by Kraftwerk's "Europe Endless" before we move on to our meta talk at 47:22. You can read my review of Holy Motors here.


That section runs until 81:56, and then we closed out with our pop culture resolutions after some bumper music from Leaders and their lost classic "(It's a) Rat Race."

As always, here are your podcast hosts, beginning with silent partner Jason "Yakety" Sacksboy:

And in case you want to know what we look like, here is a visual representation of Dylan and myself, courtesy of Emily Marie Palmer:

Dylan Garsee is a freelance writer/bingo enthusiast currently living in Austin, TX. He is studying sociology, and when he's not winning trivia nights at pork-themed restaurants, writing a collection of essays on the gay perspective in geek culture. An avid record collector, Dylan can mostly be seen at Waterloo Records, holding that one God Speed You! Black Emperor record he can't afford and crying. You can follow him on twitter @garseed.


Nick Hanover doesn't want to set the world on fire, unless he has to, which seems increasingly more likely each day. As Co-Managing Editor of Comics Bulletin, he most looks forward to making subliterate internet commenters angry and forcing his record collection on unsuspecting readers through his comic, film and television reviews and miscellaneous other pop culture pieces for the site. He promises to update Panel Panopticon more this year, but you can always find his odd rants about his potentially psychopathic roommate on twitter @Nick_Hanover or explore the world of his musical alter ego at Fitness.
