My daughter is 8 turning 20 and is really interested in what I do on this website. She asked me if she could do a video blog and I shot it for her but I told her she was going to write what she wanted to say 100% by herself. She named it Video Bomb and every word that came out of her mouth were hers alone. I hope you enjoy seeing what excites a 8 year old girl that has been raised by two very geeky parents.

We also discuss the great bell hooks (punctuated correctly) who you can sample from her recent contribution to a discussion of Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda" here.

Kathryn Bigelow's career has spanned three decades of American film-making. In that time she's proved a deft chameleon of style, co-opting the dominant styles of a time in a way that goes beyond mimicry, and has something to say about the visual mechanisms of the day. Andrew and Kyle have a fragmented conversation as they try to pinpoint the exact nature of Bigelow's strength, touching on the way she allows unsettling images of recent American trauma to filter into her films, and through her efforts to put to symbolize ideals we still struggle with. We hope you enjoy this podcast, and look into her past as we prepare for her films in the future.

Andrew and Kyle settle down to discuss their weeks exploring the films of Andrei Tarkovsky, including his collected diaries and film theory book Sculpting in Time. Next Friday they'll be discussing the next project. In the meantime, settle down, and listen as they explore their feelings after watching Tarkovsky's brilliant films.
Once is bad luck. Twice and a pattern starts to form. Apologies for the audio on this one, Andrew and Jeff recorded the podcast with best intentions but began to break down at the halfway mark, but for those of you able to trek through this was a very fun podcast.
