High and Low (Brow) – Series 5 Ep 7 – Masturbate Theatre
And we’re back! So, after taking our usual month long hiatus, the podcast you hate to love, High and Low (Brow), has returned!
This episode’s theme, Masturbate Theatre, probably needs some explanation. You see, the actual name of the episode is Brit Lit, in which James came up with several movies that were adaptations of several different well known British books from days of yore. Now, I certainly enjoy plenty of British authors, but when I hear the term Brit Lit it immediately calls to mind a style of books which typically feature oppressed female protagonists during the Victorian area. Then, combined with film adaptations, I soon cringe at the thought of watching several costume drams of pure Oscar bait shit that I would only wish on my worst enemy, ie Andrew James of the Row Three Cinecast, because he loves that crap.
Now, when James first unveiled this in our last episode, I may have zealously overreacted to the theme as I truly hate many of these types of films, but don’t you worry. One of these films I truly hate with every fiber of my being and their will be words. oh yes, their will be words. Mark my, uh, words.
But besides discussing two different films (Great Expectations and A Room with a View) we learn what a lesbian is, that James doesn’t frolic and nothing will get between James and a night of TV watching with his mother. That’s right, per usual it is a jam packed episode about nothing to do with movies.
If you have any recommendations for films we could watch for High and Low (Brow), 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 any of the feeds in the right hand column so you can catch every new episode. Also, please friend James on Facebook, Letterboxd and his second attempt at Twitter. 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 please donate through PayPal in either a single installment or as a recurring donor. We’ve done some upgrading to our equipment in the past year, plan on doing more in the near future, and every little bit helps as we continue to try to stay ahead of the curve.
And, as always, thanks for listening!
