Crazy trailers! And I just downloaded the mp3 to my phone to listen to on the commute and at the gym!! I hope I don't forget to comment again with my thoughts.

I couldn't wait to listen.

Matthew Lillard movie suggestion: SLC PUNK is a wicked movie. He was Cereal Killer in HACKERS. He was obnoxiously hilarious in SHE'S ALL THAT. Creepy in THE CURVE. Just avoid WING COMMANDER and IN THE NAME OF THE KING. Please.

Also, the cover to ZOE LETTING GO is really interesting.

Last one, I promise. YES! Everyone needs to watch ZOMBIELAND. I wish it was still on Netflix Instant.

So...did you mean for this to be nearly 3 hours long with the running time?

i'm investigating into the run-time on this ep. it is only 65 minutes... but i haven't figured out what's going on with it yet...

Again, I was slow to listen, but I dug the show this week. Vic, I'm glad your campaign you engaged in last week brought you to victory in the Gaiman thing. Not preparing for a battle doesn't mean you don't have to fight in - so I feel for Emily for being caught unawares.

I'm glad you talked about that book trailer. It was stunning. I don't like most book trailers because I think the creators are usually too ambitious and try to put something out that they can't quite pull off, this on though. Spot on perfect. That screams professional all the way.

Even the great book trailers I've seen, like the one for Brent Weeks series, with a full cast and a big FX budget, is still a SYFY cheesefest - it's awesome if you and your buddies managed to do it, but not so awesome when compared to real movie trailers. So this animated thing with the Game of Thrones vibe was amazing. I wonder what the budget was on that.

Can't wait to hear that interview ep next week.

You two are the most adorable people I know. Also, is it funny that I could tell immediately the first person to talk was Miss Vic? :-)

Back when I was in school, I went to a literature conference thing and one girl presented her paper on Fat Kid Rules the World. (I think it was on the importance of the punk in punk rock?) I remember wanting to read it but forgot until now! So thanks for reminding me, ladies. ;-) Hope it gets into at least a few small movie theaters somehow. It sounds like a wonderful story.
