Binary System Podcast #100 – One hundred episodes of randomness

Binary System Podcast is celebrating 100 episodes! Well, not counting 20 or so recorded before we started calling them Binary System, plus some bonus episodes here and there, the odd fan art collections…you know what, it’s not important, happy one hundredth episode!

The plan was to record a retrospective of our favorite moments of the last one hundred (..or so..) episodes, starting with our favorite Night Vale episodes, our favorite Weather music, and our favorite fangirl “eeeeeee” episodes like Arrival, Sherlock, and Star Wars (plus a few “arrgh!” moments with Walking Dead.) But of course there were tangents into Blade Runner 2049, Wonder Woman, Friday the 13th the Series, American Horror Story, Saga, and Transformers, because of COURSE Transformers. 

Thanks for listening in! And if you’ve got a plan for what our next 100 episodes could be about…you’re more organized than we are!

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 #68 – Arrival

As part of our continuing coverage of the 2017 Academy Awards, the twins had a thoughtful discussion about the nuances involved in the judges’ choices for Best Picture, including the overlooked importance of the Production Design Award in tandem with the Sound Mixing and Film Editing Awards.

And by all of that I mean we recited the entire plot of Arrival with lots of “EEEEEE!” noises.

Review – Arrival

Review – Arrival

You guys, I don’t know how to write a review for this movie, I really don’t. I can’t spoil anything about the plot, and I promise I won’t, but all the things I loved most, the things I really want to talk about, are all part of the things that need to surprise you when you see it. Which leaves me talking around the edges of everything I loved.

Plus it blew my mind, it really did.
