Waxing the Porpoise

Waxing the Porpoise

A podcast guided by chance where we discuss films one of the hosts has previously not seen, the unexplained/true crime - whatever the topic, you can trust it’ll be a deep cut. Hosted by G-Baby and Steve-Dog - let’s wax this porpoise.

This week G-Baby was all thumbs and forgot to hit the record button for our review of 1986's Highlander. So instead this week he and the Usual Suspect Steve scrambled to review the Stephen King short story, The Jaunt. Talk about a nightmare void, this one will stick with you longer than you think!

Let's wax this apparated porpoise.

This week G-Baby and his "China plate" the Usual Suspect Steve rapaciously ruminate about a romanticized reflection on revenge, 1999's The Limey, directed by Steven Soderbergh.  Alliteration aside, we had a lot of fun on this one - join us as we have a "butcher's" at this slept-on late 90's gem.

This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve take a left turn at Albuquerque to rap about Steve's current stock in trade, card counting aka advantage play.  We discuss the twin dragons of calculation and theatrics that are involved as well as the high level of variability that is part and parcel of this dance of the mind.

Hit, stand, or bust - let's wax this high stakes porpoise.

This week we go reverse dreidel and catch a deep cut that G-Baby has never seen, 2001's The Believer. Is this treatise on self loathing worthwhile or are you better off just watching The Hebrew Hammer? Other points of interest include oversized hats - yay or nay - and is it ever too late to change your laugh or other personality defining features?

This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve planned to focus on 1987's Near Dark but ended up going off on a Bill Paxton retrospective. We should have watched Twister.

This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve pay a visit to The Land of the Rising Sun to discuss another Ridley Scott banger, 1989's Black Rain. Great movie or the greatest movie? Join us as we find out and postulate about the validity of greed over honor, Ken Takakura's star turn as "MATS" and Michael Douglas' overall badassery.

This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve take a trip to Hollyweird and discuss Johnny Depp's ownership of the Viper Room, its sordid history and the disappearance of his former business partner, Anthony Fox. Did Depp have something to do with it or did Anthony outfox the sparrow? Join us as we dig a little deeper while avoiding grumpys and snarks along the way.

This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve go off the reservation to discuss a slept on early 90's mystery banger - Thunderheart.  Join us as we attempt to overcome the sting of Blade Runner and try to figure out whatever the hell 'Goblin Mode' means while we go for a ride with Val Kilmer on a vision quest to embrace his forgotten heritage.  "You gotta listen to the trees, hoss. Gotta stop and listen to the wind. ...

This week G-Baby and the Usual Suspect Steve go "Off-World" to discuss a dystopian cyberpunk banger that was ahead of it's time - Blade Runner.  Hot off the heels of Steve's enjoyment of The Prestige, we'll perform our own Voight-Kampff test to see whether or not he dreams of electric porpoise after his first time watch of Ridley Scott's Blade Runner.  Can he get over the inexplicable monsoon RAIN in 2019...

In this week's episode we discuss the alleged involvement of OJ Simpson's son, Jason Simpson, in the murders of Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.  Should he have been considered a suspect and examined much more closely?  We think so.  Overshadowed by his father's larger than life stature and his behavior before, during and after the trial, we look at compelling evidence that has been gathered over the years pointing to Jaso...

Are you watching closely?  In our inaugural episode we discuss a film our co-host Steve had previously never seen - shocker - 2006's The Prestige by Christopher Nolan.  We try to get to the bottom of who is the man in the box and see if Steve actually liked the film - punctuated by musings on the many disorienting time jumps and complex themes weaved throughout.  Abracadabra.
