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.
