This has nothing to do with the usual topics of this blog, except that I do like to listen to podcasts as I garden and cook. One of my favorite podcasts, Filmspotting, does special episodes in which they’ll review one movie from a list chosen by a randomly selected fan who has donated to them. This month I happened to be the lucky winner, so I sent them a short list of campy comedies that my friends and I loved in college. The hosts were very good sports as they reviewed what was probably the silliest option, Romy & Michele’s High School Reunion. I’m pretty sure no other film critics have ever used the word “Brechtian” in a review of Romy & Michele. You can download Filmspotting After Hours Episode #9 here. Listen for a voicemail cameo from me around the 3 minute mark!
In other off-topic news, I finally got around to ordering a real digital camera: the Sony DSC-W290 based on a very positive CNET review. I’m excited to be able to take photos at the distances and light levels that make my iPhone cry. Fair warning: this could mean even more gratuitous food and garden porn on this blog in the future.
