THE WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR ep 13: Twitter and Ebert At the Movies

wg13

DANNO KLONOWSKI is a cartoonist and podcaster. MATT  RISNES is a noted film blogger and podcast guest. They have been friends for nearly 20 years and like talking about stuff at length and in-depth.  In thirteenth episode, the boys are back…with an agenda this time: Twitter and Ebert!

We open with some quick Viewer Mail, then Matt opens the Ebert discussion–both Twitters reaction to his death, and the fact, oh yeah– he was kinda a dick when it came to horror movies. This leads to a talk about criticism, a CRITIQUE OF CRITICISM, if you will. Including a lot of love for RED LETTER MEDIA’s “Half In The Bag” and “Best of the Worst” This is eventually followed by a talk of Matt’s fascination with WEIRD TWITTER.  We also mention JEREMY LEBENS of THE DAILY ROTATION a lot in this episode–so you should really follow his film website. Like right now.

As for the movies (and some tv)… We discuss the EVIL DEAD remake and Matt’s recent interview with ROB ZOMBIE (so look for that transcribed text of that probably next week) on Matt’s ROPES OF SILICON feature ”FORAGING FOR SUBTEXT! We discuss how the trailer for ELYSIUM blows the trailers for OBLIVION and AFTER EARTH outta the water. We vehemently defend THE HOBBIT and give our theories as to why we think it didn’t click with the masses, as well as short discussions of two of other Matt’s favorite films of 2012: THE MASTER and KILLING THEM SOFTLY. Not to mention some gab about CHAMPAGNE SAFARI, THE LAST MOGUL, DINOTASIA, CHILDREN’s HOSPITAL, THE WALKING DEAD, JURASSIC PARK and ROCKY 4. And skeletons.  …SKELETONS!!!

Finally: Episode 15 is going to be DANNO’s HORROR HOMEWORK in which Danno watches 5 horror films he’s never seen, then Matt (who knows all the film intimately) and Danno will discuss the films at length–AND WE’D LOVE YOU THE VIEWER TO PLAY ALONG! So if you are a fan of, or have never seen but will watch in time, any of the 5 following films, please write in and leave us your thoughts about them and we will read your commentary on the show: GRAVEYARD SHIFT, FROM BEYOND, PHANTASM II, and Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN and HALLOWEEN II. We hope to hear from lots of you on WGVH ep 15: DANNO’s HORROR HOMEWORK.

This episodes break music “Total Recall” was performed by CEESICK, the solo side-project of CASEY ‘THE NELS’ NELSON who you may know best from his band NATIONAL BIRD, his painfully hilarious webcomic SEE BEAUTIFUL INDIANA, or that one time he was on this podcast.


The WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR ep 12: “Downtown Anoka”

wg12

 

DANNO KLONOWSKI is a cartoonist and podcaster. MATT  RISNES is a noted film blogger and podcast guest. They have been friends for nearly 20 years and like talking about stuff at length and in-depth.  In the twelfth episode, which was once-again thrown together at the spur-of the moment/last minute, there is no particular theme, but rather a veritable conversational hotdish following-up on some of the topics of the last episode, plus all-new content.

We open with a discussion of Matt’s trip to Arizona (our shared open disdain for Phoenix, Matt visiting the “Old Tuscon’ film studio–3 AMIGOS fans rejoice!–and much more), and then move onto viewer mail. We re-open the can of worms that is G.I.JOE: RETALIATION, have a short talk about the modern (pointless?) career of BRUCE WILLIS, Matt vents about “Pixar Dorks“, Danno and Matt have a in-depth discussion about seasons 1 & 2 of GAME OF THRONES, and then we take a break.

After the break we return with Matt leading a rant on FRANCO vs FRANCO in which Matt gives a blow-by-blow SPOLIER-IFFIC talk about “SPRING BREAKERS“, we get Danno’s thoughts on Matt’s loaning him also THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2, the boys discuss season 5 of MAD MEN (which just hit Netflix and Danno consumed in 3 days), and finally end on the genius of STEVE COOGAN’s “SAXONDALE”.

Oh! And Matt just interviewed ROB ZOMBIE, so look for that transcribed interview soon on Matt’s ROPES OF SILICON feature “FORAGING FOR SUBTEXT!

This episodes break music “What I Will Do” was performed by CEESICK, the solo side-project of CASEY ‘THE NELS’ NELSON who you may know best from his band NATIONAL BIRD, his painfully hilarious webcomic SEE BEAUTIFUL INDIANA, or that one time he was on this podcast.

 


The WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR ep 11: Live From SXSW!!!

wg11

DANNO KLONOWSKI is a cartoonist and podcaster. MATT  RISNES is a noted film blogger and podcast guest. They have been friends for nearly 20 years and like talking about stuff at length and in-depth.  In the eleventh episode, which was thrown together at the spur-of the moment/last minute, there is no particular theme, but rather a veritable conversational hotdish.

We discuss what Matt has been up to (why he wasn’t on the last episode). Things like: getting a new house, a new puppy, a new name for blog, a new feature called FORAGING FOR SUBTEXT on the ROPE OF SILICON film website (which also features the BRAD AND LAREMY podcast Matt insists everyone checks out–including Danno. Which he will!),  and finding himself a changed man with a new outlook on internet life and his new internet persona named… MATT RISNES.

We then move on to viewer mail…but there was none. SAD FACE! So instead Matt retorts last episode’s guest host ADAM HANSEN‘s verbal viewer mail on the subject of ZACK SNYDER. (Again with the Zack Snyder! Oi!)  Matt also gives his closing thoughts on BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, and then we discuss a little something called taste.

Then it’s off to discussing THE MANGLER and the declining years of Tobe Hooper‘s film career, THE DEPARTED and the declining years of Marty Scorsese‘s film career, the documentary SIDE-BY-SIDE and the declining years of film used to make films, and G.I.JOE: RETALIATION and the declining years of toy adaptation films. Finally, we discuss KICKSTARTER (specifically the recent VERONICA MARS Kickstarter campaign), and what a scary, terrible, awful things it could mean for the film industry itself in the coming years. So to balance out that horror, we discuss our happy and positive hopes and dreams for what the future of film industry could and should be.

This episodes break music “How To Live Alone” was performed by CEESICK, the solo side-project of CASEY ‘THE NELS’ NELSON who you may know best from his band NATIONAL BIRD, his painfully hilarious webcomic SEE BEAUTIFUL INDIANA, or that one time he was on this podcast.


THE WAYNE GALE VARIETY HOUR ep 3: POSH and END TRANSMISSION

DANNO KLONOWSKI is a cartoonist and podcaster. MATT RISNES is a noted film blogger and podcast guest. They have been friends for nearly 20 years and like talking about stuff at length and in-depth. In the third episode they are joined by musician and cartoonist  CASEY ‘NELS’ NELSON, a friend of about equal amount of time, who used to be in the bands POSH and END TRANSMISSION with Matt.  So listen in as the three discuss what it meant to be in a band in 1990’s Minnesota. Of course there is lots of great music by both POSH and ET played throughout the podcast. So enjoy some great 90’s rock!

POSH in the heyday at Cafe Ami. Nels singing and Shloggs (unseen) on drums.
