Adam and Justin in the car going to the country, talking about the Hunger Games sequel, Interstellar (of course - Justin has just watched all of the trailers again), old men being mean to Taylor Swift, anti-ambition, decompressed storytelling, Ryan Reynolds vs Chris Pratt, the planning permit avenger, and many other topics all frequently interrupted by the annoying GPS lady.
There are always many requests to find out what music we are playing pre-show and during the breaks at The Shelf. A version of Sia's Chandelier by Puddles Pity Party receieved many comments last night. Justin programs the music, and I will endeavour to link to some of his choices here over time.
Adam and Justin are backstage at The Comic's Lounge with Becky Lucas and special guest Michael Chamberlin, while Wil is performing. Justin has seen Interstellar for the sixth time, prompting some vile innuendo from Adam about his black hole. There is a discussion of fantasy purchases and punitive comedy.
The Shelf is on the move again. This time Justin and Adam are buying comics from the Eisner Award WinningAll-Star Comics in Melbourne. Thankfully, other people in the shop help them out when they can't remember the name for a thing, less thankfully, tangents based on things in a direct line of sight. Spoiler Alert, as always, if you haven't watched this week's Doctor Who, plus we talk about the pilot episode of The Leftovers as well as some ruminating on Arrow, Doctor Strange, The Flash and that movie with Clint Eastwood and the crazy lady. You know, the one from Arrested Development. Oh! YOU KNOW!
It's a sunny day, so Justin and Adam are having chocolate on the balcony. You'd be forgiven for thinking this is an episode of that Star Wars podcast with Steele Saunders, because we talk about Star Wars A LOT. More than normal. Tom Cruise, Twin Peaks, Batman, but really, it's just a lot of Star Wars, and noisy chocolate eating.
Spoiler Alert! (If you haven't seen this week's Doctor Who - Flatline - or are stupid enough to never have seen The Empire Strikes Back).
Apparently we've managed to get to the last week of May without releasing a podcast for The Shelf. Our most sincere apologies. This is more of the same malarkey. Justin, Adam and Tegan in a car going to the airport. We don't talk about a lot of things. Well, we go to talk about them, but then we worry about spoilers, because various people in the car are not up to speed on things, so we don't talk about those things. It might be charming or annoying. Who can tell.
