Binary System Podcast #93: Alice Isn’t Dead #10 “Why Am I Alive?”

Time for the season finale of Alice Isn’t Dead! As you can tell from the title, things get a little introspective and quickly turn very grim. We got to hear how Kesha met Alice (randomly), how they fell in love (quirkily and sweetly and not at all what Kesha had planned), and then how maybe, just maybe, it all might have been a lie.

Then Kathryn lightens the mood by talking about a very fun Board Games Night (if you’re curious, the games were Snake Oil, Codenames, and Mysterium, which you really need to try), and Elizabeth talks about how her hand-drawn Tarot deck is coming along, and did you know there’s a database of different Tarot decks?

Binary System Podcast #88 – The Alice Isn’t Dead catch-up episode (…part 2)

This week Binary System recaps two episodes of Alice Isn’t Dead in record time and that’s it! We’re all caught up with podcasts! And in one week San Diego Comic-Con takes over our lives and we’re going to get totally behind again. Enjoy the moment while it lasts…

Of course while trying to do a recap we go off on tangents about people who mine wikipedia for the best stuff, and about what a modern day oracle would look like (they probably wouldn’t be wearing greek robes in a cave, most likely a hoodie in an abandoned van) and about why you can’t eat the oranges on the ASU campus.

Binary System Podcast #87 – WTNV episode 110 “Matryoshka”

This week Binary System is finally caught up with Welcome To Night Vale woo!! Listen in as we recap (and try to pronounce) “Matryoshka.” Then there’s the Night Vale Bonus Episode “The Tragic Story of Louie Blasko,” which we don’t recap so much as point excitedly at the computer yelling “You guys you GUYS you need to listen to this!” Seriously. Right now. It’s only ten minutes. Go on, it’s okay, we’ll wait.

We also go on a tangent about China Mieville’s The City and The City, and how there may be a BBC adaptation and what a mind-f*#k that will be, and about Twin Peaks’ version of The Weather, and how Cillian Murphy can nail a dead-eyed stare, but with more sexy.

Binary System Podcast #86 – The Alice Isn’t Dead catch-up episode (…part 1)

This week Binary System Podcast is organized and on top of all the things! Hah, kidding, we’re still playing catch up. This week we recapped episodes 4 and 5 of the latest season of Alice Isn’t Dead, and still had time to talk about House of Cards, Iron Fist, Twin Peaks (…seriously, someone tell us, why do dudes think barfing scenes are hilarious?…) Jurassic World, and the totally unnecessary but really pretty boxes they sent with the Comic-Con badges.

Binary System Podcast #82 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 3 “Abandoned Places”

This week we tried to recap the latest episode of Alice Isn’t Dead, but it’s this really atmospheric episode that doesn’t do well as a recap (it’s like trying to verbally describe an excellent sunset: you kinda had to be there.)

So we gave that up and talked about Only Lovers Left Alive (and strategic side-butt), the new trailer for Bladerunner 2049 (and how Jóhann Jóhannsson is doing the music and yes to all that), the upcoming Twin Peaks season and the book The Secret History of Twin Peaks and (*pushes glasses up*) the difference between an epistolary history and an oral one. (*Grins at you over the glasses.*) Heh. We said oral.

Binary System Podcast #80 – Alice Isn’t Dead Part 2 Episode 2 “The Mouth of the Water”

It’s our 80th episode, woo hoo! Enjoy this…completely regular episode. You thought we’d have a plan? Have you met us?

Anyway, we recap the latest Alice Isn’t Dead episode and wander off into weird tangents like Salt Water Taffy vs. Tangy Taffy vs. Laffy Taffy vs. Pixie Sticks vs. Fun Dip vs. Tang (we have opinions) and the movie version of Stephen King’s 1408 (not great, except for this one scene…)

Then we figure out whether or not the second season of Broadchurch is going to be worth the inevitable heartbreak and..look, we know we said we weren’t going to talk about Iron Fist, but we’ve got thoughts about Iron Fist, because we totally see what they were going for but man did they miss the mark.

Binary System Podcast #45 – Alice Isn’t Dead #10 “Thistle”

It’s the season finale of “Alice Isn’t Dead” and as much as we liked it, what we REALLY liked was the Disparition song they used at the end (we put a clip at the end of this podcast, it has a hammer dulcimer, we love it.)

After that we had to address this whole ridiculous Pokemon Go thing. Yes, we both created accounts. Don’t judge. Also if you’re going to cheat while incubating your eggs, please don’t put your phone in bad places. Just saying.

Binary System Podcast #43 – An Alice Isn’t Dead Twofer

Because we’re two episodes behind in our recap, this week you get two recaps for the price of one. And since each episode of Alice Isn’t Dead was heavy on atmosphere and light on plot, that takes about 15 minutes. We fill up the other 13 minutes with Luther, Downton Abbey, Breaking Bad, designer toys, and the scary (but strangely familiar) (if you’ve ever tried to get SDCC tickets) process of buying New York Comic-Con tickets. (Spoilers: we’re going to NYCC! Woo!!)
