I have been teaching podcasting at a college in Melbourne for the last three years (amongst many other music tech and multimedia subjects) and I always use Fimspotting as the primary example of what a podcast should be like. I refer to it as the ultimate podcast archetype  :)
Now we know why everyone in Melbourne loves us! That last sentence got me way too excited.

LOL!

I can't take any credit for your listener base in Melbourne. It is a big wonderful diverse city with a life of its own, and a discerning populace that loves to go out.

Speaking as a person who absolutely adored District 9 and considers it his favorite movie of the year, I really can't believe just how strong the arguments have been about it - especially since the debate really isn't whether it was good or bad, but whether it was great or just OK.

And I'm fairly sure Matty read my mind this week, as the very thought that went through my head once you guys finished your original District 9 discussion was "I bet they'll get a lot of negative feedback from District 9 fans even though they liked the movie. They should really create some sort of disclaimer." Matty's spiel was much better written than anything I could have come up with, though.

Video from Meet the Parents...
With Audio from Adam and Matty's Massacre Theatre.



Had to cut a bit of dialogue to keep the entire clip in sync.
