Back Seat Book Club – Book Twenty-Six: Eyes of the Dragon

December 8th, 2014 · Scott · 1 Comment

Author: Stephen King

Published: 1987

Viking

Plot Summary - Once upon a time – there was terror and dragons and princes… evil wizards and dark dungeons… and an enchanted castle and a terrible secret. With this enthralling masterpiece of magical evil and daring adventure, Stephen King takes you in his icy grip and leads you into the most shivery and irresistible kingdom of wickedness… The Eyes of the Dragon.

Quick Thoughts:

  • Not enough dragons.
  • Better than the Last Unicorn. SHUT IT!
  • We don’t care about this book’s sausagefest.
  • Morgenstern-y (totally a real word).
  • disbelief suspenders under strain.
  • Tower lore intensive.

Recorded: 10/25/14

“Oh, I suppose all men of intelligence know how fragile such things as Law and Justice and Civilization really are, but it’s not a thing they think of willingly, because it disturbs one’s rest and plays hob with one’s appetite.” 

Next Time: Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage by Haruki Murakami

BSP Episode 334c: In A World… – Voice Only/Mono

November 10th, 2014 · Tony · No Comments

It’s another guitarcast!  Tony on the bass and Adam David on guitar.  If this is your first time, this is the one that sounds the closest to a regular episode.  Enjoy!

There are 3 different versions of this episode.

  • Version A: Split Audio/Stereo - If you listen to this version, you’ll hear our voices in your left ear and the guitars in the right.
  • Version B: Mixed Audio/Mono - If you listen to this version, you’ll hear both our voices and the music in either ear (or both).
  • Version C: Voice Only/Mono (This Version) - If you listen to this version, you’ll hear just our voices.  This one is shorter because I cut out the pauses where we are playing our instruments.  You might also hear some background string plucking that our vocal mics picked up.

Join the gang as they discuss the 2013 film In a World.

  • Directed by Lake Bell
  • Written by Lake Bell
  • Starring Lake Bell, Fred Melamed, Rob Corddry, Ken Marino, Demitri Martin, Nick Offerman

In a World is the writing and directing debut from Lake Bell, super-cute and funny chick who you’ve seen as the best friend in terrible romantic comedies, Children’s Hospital, and more. She stars as Carol, a voice coach who wants to come out from behind her successful father’s shadow and break into the movie trailer business, specifically the use of the famous movie trailer phrase “In a world…” made famous by Don LaFontaine.

Worth noting:

  • Thoughts on the movie? The premise was good but, you know, not great. It’s a little sitcom-y.
  • Halloween and stuff.
  • Moustache-less Nick Offerman will haunt your dreams.
  • Voter turnout: were you aware that, in Washington state, we vote by mail? It’s pretty sweet. Write your legislator and ask for this because it improves voting by a million percent. Science!
  • Hot network TV talk for nerds.
  • Hot calculus talk for those of you who WEREN’T English majors.

Featured in this episode:

  • Tony
  • David
