Episode 33: The Bourne Accountant

Damon v Affleck: Super Assassins!

The Soapbox Office makes its triumphant return after a brief hiatus and with it comes another Faults in the Vaults in which Mitch & Josh choose to forget all about The Bourne Identity (2002) in order to crunch the numbers in favor of The Accountant (2016).

A case is made for digital preservation with an archive of videos from pre-YouTube Internet sensation, Andy Milonakis in This Week in Torrents. The Soapbox Rant takes a stance against the fair-weather fans of Ben Affleck.

Title imageJosh goes Slipping Through the Tracks to present a gateway to Americana and this country's bluegrass roots with the soundtrack to The Coen Brothers' comedy O Brother, Where Art Thou? (2000).

Episode 32: Raising Lebowski

Coen Bros Comedy!

This week, Mitch celebrates a birthday and flaunts his veto power in Faults in the Vaults with a pair of Coen Brother comedies. The Big Lebowski (1998) is marked zero in order to reap the rewards of Raising Arizona (1987).

Josh once again educates about Open Matte formats and highlights a version of Paul Verhoeven's Showgirls that leaves nothing to the imagination for This Week in Torrents. The Soapbox Rant makes a triumphant return as the guys rally against the comedy crutch of the R-rating.

Mitch goes Slipping Through the Tracks to spotlight the glam-drenched soundtrack to Todd Haynes' Velvet Goldmine (1998), featuring great originals and covers by some of music's top creative minds, such as Brian Eno, Thom Yorke & Johnny Greenwood of Radiohead, Thurston Moore & Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth, and more!

Also in this episode, more praise for our wonderful sponsor, Raleigh Soapery, stories about interacting with the real life inspiration for The Dude, and progress updates on a recent music video project.
