We have a caffeine-fueled discussion of Life of Pi, the book and movie. Skip to the 28:34 mark to avoid spoilers. We name drop of a few other book-to-movie adaptions worth your time, and we tell you what is tickling our fancy this month. Welcome guest podcaster, Mike! We try not to be too mean to him.
Popmatic crew shares our Oscar picks and a whole lot of recommendations of things for you to watch, read, and listen to while you wait for the DVDs of the winners to come in. Crystal was so disappointed with this year’s nominees that she called in sick. We give you the skinny on a whole lot of programming the library is doing for African American History Month. We cover so many things in this episode, I’m going to stop typing now.
Whew! We made it through another one: another year, another podcast, another apocalyptic cult. In celebration, we tell you about the things we are most looking forward to in 2013. The library will have them or already has things by their creators so you can pregame. First, some events we are looking forward to:
Legends of Film is proud to present an interview with Director of Photography Adam Holender. Mr. Holender has photographed Midnight Cowboy, Smoke, Fresh, and Man on a Swing. Man on a Swing will be showing January 12, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Main Library downtown.
Best of the year show! Ours’ is superior in that you get our favorites from the library. Because we are human, we mention some things we absorbed in 2012 but were not necessarily released in 2012. We end with a teary-eyed look back at the year that was in Popmatic Podcast land. Are those tears of laughter or tears of rage?
Of all the events happening at the library in December, the one that gets us most excited is Amanda’s holiday concert featuring herself and her students.
Somehow discussions of T-Day’s favorite roasted bird ended up being about the best audio books to listen to in your car when traveling this holiday season. You’ll learn what a poult is. We end with what is tickling our fancy and what we really think of ABC’s television series Nashville.
The first week of October is Banned Books Week. We celebrate the freedom to read by telling you about our favorite banned books. The Popmatic crew is low on numbers but we have picks from all over NPL. We finish with what is tickling our fancy this October besides Margaret Atwood coming to the library.
Be nice. Be on topic.
