We're trying not to go insane folks...

Sour moods abounded on this last show of January, in which we suffered yet another technological meltdown. The day in which I and/or the Boom Operator greet the next software malfunction with a genuine psychotic break and thereafter lay waste to the studio with a rusty piece of rebar is soon approaching. Anyway, we started the show with the delectable (and hard to assemble) soundtrack to Hobo with a Shotgun, a nice bit of postmodern musical patchwork. It was a typically scatterbrained show: topics ranged from the treachery of Netflix to the penile-regurgitation scene in the recent Piranha 3D. We ended with reviews of Cronenberg's A Dangerous Method and the Oscar-fellating Hollywood meta-wank The Artist, which followed Hugo's trend of self-congratulatory cinematic historicism. Le meh.

We heard music from:

Hobo with a Shotgun - Various
Brick - Nathan Johnson with the Cinematic Underground
Tokyo Godfathers - Various
Big Trouble in Little China - John Carpenter
The Artist - Ludovic Bors
Terminator - Brad Fiedel
