This podcast was instigated after the sad death of David Bowie earlier this year.

Everybody wants to be the Stones. Everyone wants to be cool like Keith Richards. But Bowie spoke for the misfits, outcasts, underdogs, nerds and bored-as-fuck suburban kids. He spoke for the sexually confused, the hopeless dreamers, the beautifully unique. Bowie told us it was ok to be different and no you weren’t alone and no you didn’t have to conform and that you too could be a hero.

Beautiful soul, rest in peace.

Beware of Spoilers, The following podcast discusses spoilers for all published book in A Song of Ice and Fire, some Game of Thrones episodes and the C.S. Lewis Chronicles of Narnia series.

Glen (Dagos_Rivers) and new host, Sarah (Lady Weaver) provide an audio commentary on the 2005 version of C.S. Lewis’ children’s classic ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’…we get sidetracked a lot and don’t say much about the actual movie but rather focus on the timeless tale of C.S.

They discuss topics such as:
-The clever clogs children from this movie and their future endeavours.
-Many comparisons to Harry Potter and the cast of Harry Potter.
-Comparisons with the 1967, 1979 and 1988 versions of the story.
-Childhood fantasies and escapism.

amadeus
The Vassals soak up some culture with an audio commentary for the 1984 period drama Amadeus (Director’s Cut). Join Bina (Bina007) and Duncan (Valkyrist) as they dissect the tragic rivalry between Antonio Salieri and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
