Nutty Bites: Rogue One – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Rogue One is such a good film and beloved by so many it doesn’t need me to explain to you why it works. Even when we know what the result of this mission is we are fully engaged in these character’s stories. Instead of spending too much time on the second awesome modern Star Wars movie I talk more about dog days, balticon, and being alone. I also paired this with blue milk, because why not? Everyone wants to poop blue, right?
Nutty Bites: Logan – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Logan is the Wolverine movie we have all been waiting for. There have been some hits and misses from Fox when it came to the X-Men but they cast him well and this final movie is what we have been wanting to see the whole time. Longtime comic fans will love this, anyone who has had to care for family will be able to relate too. I paited this with a dagwood of a sandwich, all the meats, perfect for a road trip.
Nutty Bites: Down the Rabbit Hole – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Down the Rabbit Hole is a youtube series by Fredrik Knudsen. He approaches more modern internet stories like a historian. Chronicling often the depths of drama (Like NeoPets, Sonichu, and darksydephil) that leads one down the rabbit hole. He also delves into offline stories like the Collyer Brothers and Plague Doctors. I find his stories fascinating and love that he has released updates and corrections and look forward to more information coming out thanks to his videos. There aren’t many videos yet but he is steady in his 2 week release schedule. I paired this with some stovetop popcorn.
Nutty Bites: Gotham – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Gotham should have been called GCPD, too many people who watch expect a Batman story, and that isn’t what this show is about. They would have been better off not even including Bruce Wayne (though we would have not has the most awesome Alfred). This is Jim Gordon’s story more than anything. I paired this with Pho because it is magical and sometimes medicinal.
Nutty Bites: Absolutely Fabulous the Movie – Dinner and a Movie – Dog Days of Podcasting 2017
Absolutely Fabulous was a favorite show from way back and I have always loved the hilariously awful duo of Patsy and Edwina. When I heard there was a movie coming out my only thought was “Please don’t be bad.” It wasn’t, it was everything I might have expected it to be. It is awful and full of pop culture jokes, the AbFab duo is clinging to anything trendy and getting it 100% wrong, as always. It is hilarious. It’s not a mockery of anyone one real person but a mockery of the idea of chasing the latest thing I think. I paired this with champagne cupcakes with 24K gold dust on top of the champagne butter cream, mmmm.
This episode is dedicated to the memory of Fozzi Forester. (I will only call him Fozzi, the name he preferred, not his birth name.) He will be forever missed by now one of the patron saints of Nutty Bites.
