Surrounded by Boxes and Leonard Nimoy Poetry BooksA 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 1.12-
"Surrounded by Boxes and Leonard Nimoy Poetry Books"
We're back in a semi-timely fashion this week! And the best part of that is you folks might even get another episode in an even shorter amount of time! No promises, though. But on to the actual episode. We invited Janelle back this week to help us talk about celebrity nudity in the news, as well as traumatizing film experiences and the episode of Project Runway Dylan forced us to watch. And for those who are curious, the Grindr alternatives Dylan listed off were Growlr and Scruff, and if you look at Growlr's icon, you'll see why we all thought it was so hilarious. Sidenote: feel free to add Dylan on any of those apps, but unless you're willing to buy him a gin and tonic, don't expect him to do much other than look awkward. Anyway, as always, you can listen to the by clicking the play button right here or download it.
The news discussion begins at 8:41 and ends at 23:16 and includes such lovely subjects as nude Randy police chases and Shia LaBeouf's genitals.
We kicked off the disturbing movie experiences discussion at 23:47 and kept it going louder until 68:14. The film that inspired this was Killer Joe, which Dylan recently saw but some of the other films we discussed were In the Realm of the Senses, 3D Sex & Zen: Extreme Ecstasy, Irreversible, Enter the Void, Man Bites Dog, Martyrs, Inside, and Haute Tension.
And then to counteract all that darkness, we started talking about Project Runway at 68:42 until the end.
The theme song and namesake for the show is Total Control's excellent "Paranoid Video". The bumper music this week was Dr. Feelgood's "Roxette", the A-Frames' "U-Boat" and Das Racist's "Fashion Party," respectively.
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:
