Certified Sci-Fi & Fantasy

June 29, 2020

We're back with the Genre Jar™! We pulled four genres from the jar, we put up a poll on twitter, you picked one, and sci-fi/fantasy won! Well, it was supposed to be a genre jar episode, but we may have spent most of it developing the greatest space opera of all time that will never be. We did end up getting to the topic at the end, promise.

No spoilers, but time codes and other things can be found on our blog post: https://bit.ly/2Zd67FS

June 8, 2020

This week we wanted to choose a movie that wasn't just an action or comedy movie and watched Anarchists From Colony, starring Lee Je Hoon. It's a bit timely right now, and a lot of the movie's elements definitely mirror some of what's going on. This episode also really shows how sporadic our recordings can be.

In light of everything going on, we took things a little loose this week and decided to focus on some music news from the past month. Honestly, we all need the break.

That being said, these are hard times right now and everyone should be doing whatever they can to help. Not everyone can do everything, but everyone can do something.

This week we spent some time listening to a relatively new genre for us, C-POP and discuss some of the groups we enjoyed, some of the obstacles that arrived trying to find new music, and just generally discuss how important it is to go outside of your comfort zone to experience new music. Just like all the other music episodes, we also talk about what we've been listening to and what's coming up in the month of May (aka October 2.0).

This is an info-packed episode, so for all links, playlists, and time codes that go along with this episode, check out this blog post.
