Keir, an independent director and writer, & Austin, a vagabond philosopher and actor, have very different film tastes. Each week, one or the other gets to choose a film that the duo will watch and then discuss. Keir's encyclopedic film knowledge and love for Michael Bay and Tony Scott make him a formidable opponent for Austin's pretentious art-house sensibilities. Tune in as they spar over the merits (or lackthereof) of some of cinema history's greatest films... and some others that Austin w ...

Totally Pretentious is a movie discussion podcast hosted by two movie dorks who would rather spend their weekends watching and talking about movies than taking out the garbage or just about any other mundane task. Of course, dorks though we may be, we’re still of the mindset that there are far too many great films that never get the awards recognition they deserve. Each episode, we discuss one feature film, exploring its historical context, themes, legacy, and/or its artsy-ness. Totally Pret ...

Every week, a bunch of pretentious wise guys sit around and review the latest anime. Sometimes it all ends up making sense, but sometimes it doesn't. These...are their stories.
 
Each David Bowie album is unique. Some are universally lionised, some regarded as merely legendary, some, pretentious codswallop. But we all have our favourites. In this series of podcasts, I meet up with writers, musicians, critics and assorted woodland folk, to explore their choice of album in rambling roundelays of free-form facting, anorak-grade geekery, pompous pontification, impassioned argument and highly-contentious chat. I like to think these podcasts exercise the minds of some of t ...

A podcast so beautifully meaningless you will cry nihilistic tears out of nonchalantly dripping ducts under glazed over pupils under half shut eyes on the expressionless face of a body that’s technically asleep in a pastel room in a retirement home in town where nothing ever happens in a universe that’s perfectly predictable and slowly cooling down.
 
Podcasts dealing with pop culture, comedy, music, movies, stories, and holidays.
 
Grossmith’s comic novel unveils the daily chronicles of the pompous and clumsy middle-aged clerk Charles Pooter, who has just moved to the London suburb of Holloway with his wife Carrie. Nonetheless, the family’s fresh start is not quite what they had in mind. Set in the late Victorian era, the diary accurately documents the manners, customs, trends and experiences of the time. First appearing in Punch magazine through the years 1888-89, The Diary of a Nobody was first published in book form ...

If you're a whiskey/bourbon drinker, you'd probably like to know even more about bourbon and whiskey. You most likely want to discover new whiskies and bourbons. But, if you're like us at all, you can't stand all of the whiskey related shows that talk about 'hints of marzipan', or 'notes of autumn meadows'.

A Room With a View opens with Two Englishwomen touring Europe. The older one is poor, bossy, old fashioned and a great upholder of what is “proper.” The younger one is less certain of herself, but holds within her the makings of a passionate, emotional and independent woman. In Florence they are allotted a room overlooking a dull courtyard, whereas they had specifically asked for a “view.” A fellow guest offers them his own rooms which offer wonderful vistas of the Arno. The older woman inst ...

Dead Souls by Nikolai Gogol, Russian writer, was first published in 1842, and is one of the most prominent works of 19th-century Russian literature. Gogol himself saw it as an “epic poem in prose”, and within the book as a “novel in verse”. Despite supposedly completing the trilogy’s second part, Gogol destroyed it shortly before his death. Although the novel ends in mid-sentence (like Sterne’s Sentimental Journey), it is usually regarded as complete in the extant form. In Russia before the ...

This is our podcast. It was originally on YouTube because our content could be hosted there for free. We like to talk over movies. By 'talk over movies' we don't intend some alternate way of saying 'we do movie commentaries'. It's more like we talk about anything in particular while some movie plays in the background. We are providing a service here. With technology being what it is, a near perfect theatre experience is easily recreated in the comfort of ones own home. However, a certain asp ...

Lore Of The Yeti

The delusional host of this pretentious podcast is under the impression that a Yeti Society exists in the foothills of Southern Alberta. He proceeds to arrogantly criticize our culture and values like an insolent snob from the view point of appealing to this morally advanced and spurious society of Sasquatch/Yeti. He even has the audacity to claim that this fictitious society enacts decrees unto our own, demanding and advising with all the pontifical ravings of a deeply unsettled man.

Fables for the Frivolous is one of the earliest works by the American parodist Guy Wetmore Carryl. These fables are adapted from Jean de La Fontaine's original writings.

One of the beneficial results of the Great War has been the teaching of thrift to the American housewife. For patriotic reasons and for reasons of economy, more attention has been bestowed upon the preparing and cooking of food that is to be at once palatable, nourishing and economical.In the Italian cuisine we find in the highest degree these three qualities. That it is palatable, all those who have partaken of food in an Italian trattoria or at the home of an Italian family can testify, th ...
 
This work may not be by Plato, or his entirely, but Jowett has offered his sublime translation, and seems to lean towards including it in the canon. Socrates tempted by irony to deflate the pretentious know-it-all Hippias, an arrogant polymath, appears to follow humour more than honour in this short dialogue. (Summary by Kevin Johnson)
