The Hot Apodcast!
Continuing on the subject of imminent Marvel video releases, the “Guardians of the Galaxy” disc is coming out soon. I mention this because it reminded me of something I did and forgot a few months ago.
For a while, I’ve been intermittently flirting with the idea of recording a casual kind of podcast. The Hot Apodcast! The name’s almost enough for motivation alone. But I was alone! I couldn’t think of anyone with the time and inclination to co-host.
Over the summer, I resumed relations with an old friend I hadn’t seen in a bit of a while, which reminded me that there was in fact a person in my life who possessed even more free time than I did. If that’s possible?
Anyway, we decided to give it a shot because we have long, rambling talks anyway, and we chose to use the topic of movies for a starting point because that tends to be a recurrent element in our discussions.
After he stepped in to provide a bit of percussion for me at an acoustic show I was doing downtown, we realised that we had time to race up to his neighbourhood and catch a late screening of “Guardians of the Galaxy”.
The discussion that followed launched our podcast, which I’m now remembering to upload. Here it is!
Star-Lord versus Sun King?
Obviously, Louis XIV had panache, but I think that Peter Quill has the weaponry to walk away with most of the wins here.
