ERIX ANTOINE’S ANNUAL PODCAST: Episode 3 – And The Kids LOVE Glenn Frey!

23 Jun


And here’s another one.

On schedule this time.

It is officially the 25th anniversary of Batman. And, for a guy who was turning twelve in the Summer of 1989, that’s kind of a big fucking deal.

For many others, it probably isn’t. But the fact is, Summer 1989 does remain one of the “legendary” movie seasons. And it seemed fitting that now, one generation removed from its explosion, we should look back and reminisce.

To do this, Jason Pollock and I got together with our good friend Mike Flynn who runs a fun blog called The Pleasuredome and he’s about as obsessed with movies in general and the Summer of 1989 in particular as I am.

What resulted from this was an extremely rich discussion, where we went over the films but also tried to pin down if 1989 even deserves its legendary status… It was such a splendid talk, it produced enough material for TWO podcasts, which is why this is merely part one of two. 

In this first installment, we focus specifically on the release slate of May – August 1989 and come to some conclusions about the ultimate “quality” of the summer.

It’s a spirited 100 minutes of film talk, nostalgia and even some goofy digressions. And there’s plenty more where this nonsense came from, don’t worry.

And, if you’re wondering about all the traffic noise, well… The fact is I happen to live on one of the busiest streets in all of fucking La Paz. And we had the good sense to tape this thing on a weekday afternoon.

But, what the hell, a few car horns never hurt anyone, right?

    Reblogged this on The Pleasuredome and commented:
    Erix Antoine of The Erix Antoine Network, Jason Pollock of what is best in life and I recorded a loud, raucous commemoration of the summer of 1989 for The Erix Antoine Network, when Batman, Indiana Jones, the Ghostbusters, James Bond, the Enterprise, Riggs and Murtaugh, Rick Moranis and more duked it out in a summer season for the ages. Films are debated, fisticuffs thrown, some REALLY funny jokes are made.

    It has nothing to do with considering these guys friends that this is the most fun I’ve ever had doing a podcast, and there’s TWO PARTS to this! So, kick back with your wonderful toys, flip on Like a Prayer or the Batman soundtrack and listen and share!

Speak, damn you!
