On tonight's #76 the first time I've officially heard the phrase "it's going in the pantheon" - referring to Chinatown getting the legendary status that Citizen Cane and the Godfather already had. Tonight a listener wrote in and called out Adam for uttering the phrase "I hear you're saying but you're wrong" too many times. I'm guessing this is the point at which this becomes the "inside joke" that eventually grew to become a signature catch phrase borrowed and referenced by other podcasts. Nice - too unofficial starts in one evening. If they only knew.
They've just finished doing a Top 5 "most anticipated for 2007" which included "Talladega Nights" (or the "Untitled Nascar Movie with Will Farrell" -that phrase alone tells you all that's wrong with hollywood! )
, "Idiocracy", "The Fountain" and "Zodiac". Adam's #2 was "Superman Returns". It's not his fault
They are still doing the two shows a week thing - which I'm really glad they moved off of eventually. There are rarely clips for the massacre theaters - which makes me very appreciative we have them now - because I'm forgetting what the dialog was when they give the answer! Doing 6-10s seems in hindsight like overkill and perhaps a bit of a cheat. Glad that eventually disappeared.
They did a, I think, tongue in cheek call for a $500 telethon for licensing money so they can do film soundtracks on their bumper music. Pretty sure that was tongue in cheek. I'm glad they have stuck with the kinda-sort-indie track. It gives the show a unique character and indie sensibility
