Matthew Broderick shows Ally Sheedy how to use a word processor, presumably.

Episode 1 – WarGames

Episode 1 is finally here, and unlike Star Wars: Episode 1 – The Phantom Menace, you have no expectations and thus are unlikely to be disappointed! We forced our friends Adam and Ally to discuss the 1983 sci-fi comedy/drama/all-around-fun-movie WarGames. We discuss whether Lightman’s parents should have had their own movie, sequels that don’t exist (oh wait, they do!) and hair tousling.

Adam mentions the “Paranoid Chant” by the Minutemen. Was it inspired by WarGames? Three minutes of Googling wasn’t able to verify that so I guess we’ll never know! Catchy song though.

Podcast Launch is April 6, 2017!

It’s finally making it official: you can download the first TWO episodes of Cinematic Respect on April 6th. Release should be bi-weekly after that, until popular demand dictates that we do it more frequently (or less frequently I suppose…). And those episodes won’t disappoint! My voice might though. The first recording coincided with a month long illness and caused my voice to completely leave this corporeal form and wander off somewhere. Hopefully this won’t be too distracting. Although, it was pointed out that my voice was markedly more sexy at the end of recording. Your mileage may vary.

Our Twitter and Instagram accounts are now active, so feel free to follow those. Or you can obsessively refresh this webpage for the same experience.

Here’s a link to the trailer for “Baby Driver”, the unusually named film by Edgar Wright. I’d normally not know what to think, but this is Edgar Wright. And a pretty impressive cast, including Jon Hamm with weird-ass hair.

Last Post You’ll Probably Get Before Launch

So upon reflection, it seems that our friends often dressed up for Halloween as their favorite movie characters. I did almost 100% of the time. I promise this is my last costume pic for a while though. I’m saving all the GOOD pictures for Launch Day.

Just letting y’all know that I’ve pretty much got all the social media stuff ready to go, and have the first episode edited, so we’re well on our way. I guess I’d be lying, though, if I said this post weren’t simply to fill out our currently selected WordPress theme. But no one said podcasting would be easy! For instance, it seems I have inadvertently scheduled a recording of The Gobeski/Wallace Report at the same time as the 2017 Oscars! How shameful, considering I’m someone criticizing others for their lack of pop cultural awareness! But we all make sacrifices for the betterment of society! By the way, in that new episode, we’ll be talking about the Carrot Top vehicle Chairman of the Board.

We’ve Started Recording!

So things are finally underway here in the Madison Studio and we’ve successfully recorded the first two episodes of Cinematic Respect. You might say to yourself Hey Charlie, I’ve been to your house; you don’t have a studio. Well, I think if someone runs TWO podcasts, they can officially refer to whatever room they want as a studio. You really are a bit picky for someone who probably doesn’t even have ONE podcast.

Which movies have we chosen for our guests in episodes 1 and 2? You’ll just have to wait until launch day to see! There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work to be done still, but I assure you that day is not far off! In fact, if you know us personally, I doubt you’ll be able to avoid being bombarded by social media announcements at that time. So sit back and relax, you impatient cinephile. Great things are coming soon!

BTW, the picture for this post includes at least two movie related costumes. Can you spot them? Can you spot the one we all probably could have done without?

Podcast Site Launch!

Hey, how’s it going? A little bit weird to see this site without a podcast available to give it context, isn’t it? Well, you should’t have to wait long see what we’re up to. In the mean time, I’m going to be messing around with this place so just deal with it. If you’re some weirdo who want to troll an incomplete website, be my guest.

Is this picture of me using a microphone incorrectly with a blindfold on not amusing enough for you? If you get bored, why not head over to The Gobeski/Wallace Report? That site’s been up for a while and actually has many, many podcast episodes to enjoy. But it’s really up to you. See you in a while!
