And we’re back! James and I have taken a few months off to rest and relax from what we both felt was a pretty good second series for High and Low (Brow) and we have triumphantly returned with a fair share of rust for the Series Three premiere. But then, if this show ran smoothly I don’t think we’d have a tenth of the viewers we have.
In this episode we gently tackle the theme of Revenge by watching the 1955 sci-fi B-movie The Creature with the Atom Brain as well as the Japanese samurai grindhouse film Sword of Vengeance, which is based on the iconic manga Lone Wolf and Cub. Will we like them? Will we hate them? Will we spend more time discussing James’ penchant for lying for his own amusement? Perhaps all three and more, as we of course also engage in our blind selection process to find the theme and films for the next episode, which was thankfully provided by one of our regular listeners.
I went back to posting the episode as just a simple mp3, primarily because it was taking me forever to do the post production for this episode and I really just didn’t feel up to investing the extra time to get the show posted. I should be going back to mp4 after this unless people really make a stink about keeping them as mp3′s.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for the podcast, or want to suggest a potential theme for us to use, or simply want to tell James how awesome he is, feel free to email us and tell us your ideas. If you enjoy the show make sure to subscribe through iTunes or our RSS feed so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook. Because it will frighten and confuse him. And while you’re there be sure to join our relatively new Facebook group devoted to Where the Long Tail Ends.
One more thing, if you enjoy the show feel free to donate to it through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’d love to upgrade some of our equipment and anything you donate will go directly towards us getting some decent mics and perhaps even pop screens that aren’t made out of cotton balls.
As always, thanks for listening!
