Paranoid Video 2.01- Let's Talk About Your DoorknobsA column article, Paranoid Video by: Dylan Garsee, Nick Hanover
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 2.01-
"Let's Talk About Your Doorknobs"
After an extended hiatus, we're back for season two of Paranoid Video, and to start things off, we've decided to discuss expectations in fandom, specifically in reference to the fourth season of Arrested Development, before launching into our most anticipated movies coming out of this year's Cannes Film Festival.
As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here.
In the intro segment, the Panel Education essay Dylan spoke about is this one, on Dan Slott's She-Hulk series. He'll be discussing Butcher Baker, The Righteous Maker next month. Dylan and I each did several SXSW film write-ups, which you can click on throughout this sentence. Meanwhile, the venture we and other CB staff just launched is called Pop Quiz! and it's a pop culture-specific pub quiz. Go like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter!
The first bit of bumper music is the New York Dolls-esque rock of Third World War's "A Little Bit of Urban Rock," then we begin our fan expectations discussion at 9:55 and go until 41:35. That Top 10 on disappointing third film is this one, and Dylan's thoughts on Dark Knight Rises can also be glimpsed here. Danny and I of course had a different opinion of the film, specifically we felt it was a covert adaptation of Frank Miller's Holy Terror.
The next bit of bumper music is, appropriately enough, Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's "L'anamour." That leads into Cannes talk at 42:05 until the end. The Top 10 we mention on award winning comic adaptations is here, and Blue Angel is set to be published by Arsenal Pulp Press.
Meanwhile, 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 got his degree from Disneyland, but he's the last of the secret agents and he's your man. Which is to say you can find his particular style of espionage here at Comics Bulletin, where he reigns as the co-managing editor, or at Panel Panopticon, which he started as a joke and now takes semi-seriously. Or if you feel particularly adventurous, you can always witness his odd rants about his potentially psychopathic roommate on twitter @Nick_Hanover and explore the world of his musical alter ego at Fitness and Pontypool.
