AMEN – CT DNB / March 2017 feat. JOHN B, Metafish, Dig Doug & The ART

Last night’s AMEN at Pacific Standard Tavern was on fire! The building was shaking, the bass was blasting, and the vibe was intense and overall awesome.

As always, thank you Love Tribe for letting Atomic Blue be part of your production!

Let’s Watch 2 Movies: The Prestige

After last week’s three-hour episode about The Dark Knight, this week’s two-hour episode of analysis of The Prestige seems downright reasonable in length, doesn’t it? Thank goodness for that, since Mary Ellen and Maddy had to watch both of these movies and record both episodes in one week, due to the way scheduling worked out. This was TOO MUCH NOLAN, folks. Don’t try this at home. Anyway, now’s a good time to subscribe if you haven’t yet; our hosts aren’t entirely sure when their next episode will be out, but once it is, you know you won’t want to miss it!

Let’s Watch 2 Movies – The Dark Knight

WE’RE BACK. After spending several weeks in Marvel jail, Mary Ellen and Maddy return to podcasting to address the blood feud that has haunted the entire run of this show: NOLANNN. Our hosts have chosen to analyze The Dark Knight and The Prestige, in that order. Anyway, did you all know that The Dark Knight is a really long movie? This podcast episode is even longer! We’re not sorry. (Okay, we’re a little sorry. Listen to it in chunks, or something.) Your reward for making it to the end of the episode will be getting to hear Mary Ellen and Maddy lose their minds over the difference (or lack thereof) between the hero Gotham deserves and the hero Gotham needs. Lastly, we refer to this Clickhole parody video analysis of The Dark Knight roughly 600 times in this episode, so you should probably watch it.

Let’s Watch 2 Movies – The Incredible Hulk (2008)

This episode starts out innocently enough, with Mary Ellen and Maddy comparing Eric Bana’s 2003 turn at the Hulk to Edward Norton’s later attempt in 2008, in The Incredible Hulk. However, about halfway in, the episode goes completely off the rails as Maddy and Mary Ellen debate why this movie won’t let the Hulk have sex. This episode is an abomination, loaded with two different Hulk serums. That’s actually a reference to the 2008 Hulk movie, and it’s just as gross as it sounds.

Throwback Theater – GENO: The Dating Game

Join Maddy and Ryan as they re-read a story Ryan wrote as teens about the GENO characters going on a fake date to deal with their “tension” in this sort of romantic comedy! Featuring a bunch of Yoshis, for some reason.

Let’s Watch 2 Movies – The Incredible Hulk (2003)

Happy Hulkidays and a Hulky New Year! The 2000s brought us not one, but two Hulk movies–and both of them were deemed unsatisfactory. But why? We must use scientific research to find out. And also magic, and our feelings. Mary Ellen and Maddy kick this pairing off with a very giggly analysis of Eric Bana’s attempt at the character in the 2003 film Hulk, directed by Ang Lee. This movie……. is funny. And it’s not supposed to be. Whoops.
