Film Pig Stephen J. Skelton joins host David T. Cole on Previously.TV‘s That’s What We’re Tarkin About podcast. And what we’re Tarkin about is the Star Wars Holiday Special! Mercifully, only the 10 minute segment where Carrie Fisher is irritated by anything she has to acknowledge and Art Carney uses the Force of his old-timey comedy skills to confuse disinterested Imperial soldiers. And there’s an old rock band singing into a glowing wang or something. Lots to unpack here. Happy Life Day, motherfuckers!
If this is even remotely true:
Then they should probably just go ahead, save themselves some time, and turn over the Star Wars franchise to Joss Whedon as well.
So we got these fancy new microphones that look like little silver thermoses and spent about 3 hours huddled in front of Falk’s Mac trying to get them to work in GarageBand, because we’re professionals. We think the result speaks for itself: our self-centered ramblings sound so much better! This episode, the Pigs use their new equipment to discuss Science Fiction in movies. Plus, news, Movie Jail, the return of the cold reading, and more!
It’s our sixth podcast! We’ve done this six times! With summer fast approaching, this episode is devoted to Big Summer Event Blockbuster Movies! The Pigs discuss the rise of the blockbuster and why three old and cynical men don’t get nearly as excited about the movies as they used to. There must be some reason. Also, our takes on the latest, critically important movie news, Movie Jail, fun and games, an adventurous cold reading, and much, much more! Well, not that much, but there’s definitely more.
