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 1.19-
"People Are Just Fucking Gross, All the Time."
In this week's very special episode of Paranoid Video, Dylan has contracted FunFunFun disease and believes he is dying. So naturally Dylan's roommate/frequent PV guest Ryan Usher and I decided to keep him company with a discussion of sickness in entertainment and some suggestions for entertainment to enjoy while you're incapicitated.
As always, you can listen to the episode at the player below or download it here.
Since this week's episode is just one big discussion about feeling gross in and out of entertainment, there aren't any specific segments. But if you want to hear more about my thoughts on the perenially underrated Pontypool, here's an essay I wrote on it for our Celluloid International column, or check out the piece I did on it for last week's Halloween top 5 on underappreciated horror films. In case that's not enough, CB's tv/film section editor Paul Brian McCoy is also an advocate of the film. Seriously though, it's fucking awesome.
If you want to avoid the same fate as Dylan, make sure you keep yourself hopped up on vitamin c and green tea this fall. Definitely don't make out with the recently reunited members of a seminal Scandinavian post-hardcore outfit.
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.
When he's not writing about the cape and spandex set and functioning as the Co-Managing Editor of Comics Bulletin, Nick Hanover is a book, film and music critic who has contributed to Spectrum Culture, No Tofu Magazine, Performer Magazine, Port City Lights and various other international publications. By which he means Canadian rags you have no reason to know anything about. He also translates for "Partytime" Lukash's Panel Panopticon and you can follow him on twitter @Nick_Hanover
