Conor and Luke were still coasting from the 11/11/11 rush and discussed Spinal Tap without even mentioning its elevenness. Conor was pleasantly surprised to find Mean Streets didn’t bum him out and for Table Time Luke was enjoying Uncharted and Conor had been reading an actual book. Highlights this week include Luke’s self-described ‘old man voice’, disappointments include a failure to tie the show to Kenny Loggins this week.
This week Conor and Luke are confronted by the wall of intellectual and conversational force that is Fran Lebowitz and the documentary about her: Public Speaking. The Screwball Comedy season begins with Bringing Up Baby, one of the funniest movies of all time and definitely the funniest movie of all time that had a leopard in it. For Table Time Luke discusses the book For One Week Only: The World of Exploitation Films by Richard Meyers, and Conor shamelessly plugs a podcast project he has dreamt up where he will attempt a thousand interviews over on athousandstories.org. (The sentence about the shameless plug contained a shameless plug, and this sentence is shame-free too)
