In Which I Become Demented…

Oh, you think I’m already demented? Okay. I’ll accept that. But this week, it’s official (if temporary) as I guest on the Demented Podcast, hosted by Nick Jobe of Random Ramblings of a Demented Doorknob and Steve Honeywell of 1001 Plus. This has become one of my favorite podcasts to listen to, both because the hosts have a great dynamic with each other, and because the show doesn’t focus on new releases like most other movie podcasts out there. Instead, the guest chooses a genre and each host chooses a film, usually one the other host has not seen, though that’s not necessarily required. In this case, I chose film noir, Nick chose Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and Steve chose L.A. Confidential. I’d seen both of those before, but had been meaning to rewatch both, so it worked out pretty well.

Oh, I forgot to mention. The second half of the show is a trivia game – probably the best trivia game I’ve heard on any podcast ever, thanks to the amount of work that Nick and Steve do actually writing a story to hang the questions on, a story that has something to do with the genre under discussion. There’s a lot of story that never gets read, too, since there are different ways the story could go depending on how well you do on the trivia questions. Yeah, it’s fun to listen to, and nervewracking (but also fun) to play. How well did I do? You’ll have to listen to find out. Which you can do below, on Nick’s site, or by subscribing to the show on iTunes. Which you should do.

Anyway, thanks for having me on the show, Nick and Steve! I had a great time.
