This film appeals to many different people on many different levels, I think. Whether you're a punk-spirited youth or a cranky, middle aged record collector, there's something to connect to in this dark comedy. Enter into episode 8 and Ghost World...
As I mention in the podcast, this film resonates with me in a lot of ways, and judging by the amount of interaction my Instagram pic got when I posted about the film, it resonates with A LOT of people, and I really like that. It's what prompted me to feature the film in its own episode. And if it prompts someone out there to watch the film if they haven't previously seen it, then my job is done.
Below is a shot of the books I talk about in the episode. I confess I'm not really a comic book or graphic novel reader, but I pulled out a few gems that might keep me from getting kicked out of the cool kids club.
I hope you enjoy this episode, I had great fun pulling the audio clips of my favorite parts (sorry for the less than stellar audio on them, I did my best!) and playing a few songs from the soundtrack. I only wish the soundtrack had gotten a vinyl release in time for this episode, but I'll let you in on a little secret...it's coming!
Episode 9 has an air date of VALENTINE'S DAY and I have something really special planned for it, so I hope you'll tune in. Thanks for listening!
