Episode 32 - Creation, Not the God Kind

Amy's back. If you're singing a certain Elton John song now, she'll hunt you down and bite your kneecaps.

Randy had the theme for this time around and wanted works that discuss the creation of art.

Show notes

Intro Music: "Ca Plane Pour Moi" by Plastic Bertrand (YouTube)
Exit Music: "A Picture of Dorian Gray" by Television Personalities (YouTube)

  • Amy's recommending, when and if it gets to a theater near you, "What We Do in the Shadows" a vampire mockumentary from New Zealand (trailer)
  • Randy didn't necessarily like, but wants you to watch, "Whiplash" (in theaters now-ish) (imdb)
  • Joseph recommends a documentary about Los Angeles as it's appeared in the movies: "Los Angeles Plays Itself" (available on Netflix streaming and on DVD) 
  • The picture of Dorian Gray that Joe was talking about seeing at the Art Institute of Chicago is by Ivan Albright
  • Amy picked the Plastic Bertrand song because it was used in Ruby Sparks, but in reading up on it was amused to learn that the individual who made his debut as the personality Plastic Bertrand with this song, was actually faking it - the producer of the song sang all the vocals. Somehow that seems almost appropriate for our theme.

On the next episode

Joe wanted "lady detectives" so Randy's giving him Veronica Mars in the eponymous film from earlier this year and Amy's picking The Spellman Files, the first in a series of books by Lisa Lutz.
