Happy Hour #95 - Olivia Newton-Podcast - ‘Xanadu’
It’s the cult musical everyone loves to hate! Featuring Olivia Newton-John, Gene Kelly, rollerskates and cartoon fish - it could only be Xanadu! This time we’re chatting all about the musical that started the Razzies. But we work out if it is actually as bad as everyone says it is? We also check out the stage musical adaptation and try to determine which is better! Along the way we discuss viral marketing, musical mashups and the importance of wearing a glitzy scarf. What’s not to love?! Support the Podcast ➤ Xanadu (Original Broadway Cast Recording) iTunes / Spotify SHOW NOTES If you’ve only read the reviews and have decided not to watch the original Xanadu movie, then think again. It’s pure, unadulterated joy. Do it. Do it now. If you’re not convinced why not check out this classic cheesy 80s trailer? This documentary from the anniversary puts a lot of the film’s complicated legacy into perspective. In a fun addition to the stage adaptation we have Mary Testa and Jackie Hoffman play the ‘villains’ of the piece! Here they are in action at Bryant Park. You can see here how the creatives involved in the adaptation are not fans of the movie… Xanadu had a fascinating Tony campaign starring the notorious Cubby Bernstein - checkout this ep starring Nathan Lane! Do you think it would fly today? Spelling Bee and [title of show] had similar funky YouTube marketing campaigns. Have a gander! Do you miss this? Can we start some kind of social media campaign to make Kenny Ortega bring To Wong Foo to the stage and for him to bring Jimi on as a dramaturg? Thanks. Remember you can come chat to us about the episode on Twitter and Instagram @jimandtomic! Or if you wanna pop OFF then jump into our email inbox at jimandtomic@gmail.com! Or come join us on the discord! A Coincidental Quatement It was a complete accident that this musical and a film with the exact same name and premise premiered the same year.

Hawaiian Resistance, Tourism & Abolition: For The Love of The Mauna, Part 3
Please join us for the third and final piece of our series on the movement to protect Mauna Kea. We have been incredibly humbled and blessed to have reported on the movement, and are so grateful to everyone who made this possible.  During the pandemic as tourist numbers have dropped, fish have returned in areas in Hawai’i where they have been absent for years. The land is healing itself. Despite the toll excessive tourism and capitalism has taken on the Hawaiian islands; there is still hope to heal. 27 years ago in 1993, tourists outnumbered Hawaiian residents 6:1 and Native Hawaiians 30:1. Imagine how those figures have risen today...  The Mauna Kea movement has been one of relationships: to land, water, air, kanaka (people), and spirit. On this episode we hear again from the incredible Jamaica Osorio, activist, educator, and cultural practitioner; and Dr. Auntie Noe Noe Wong-Wilson, scholar, poet, and activist. They discuss the lessons and revelations  from time on the Mauna and pathways forward to honor relationships and empower future generations.  We recorded this episode the day after the violent insurrection on the Capitol, so we bring in our thoughts about resistance, activism, and overthrow under settler colonialism.  We hope that through this series you can join us in imagining an otherwise future, built and cemented in Indigenous relationships. There is so much to learn beyond this series, so please continue learning alongside us. “We are certainly not too late to live in dignity with our āina” - Jamaica Osorio +++ All My Relations is Listener Supported Become a Patron: https://www.patreon.com/allmyrelationspodcast Follow Dr. Noe Noe Wong Wilson, Executive Director of The LĀLĀKEA FOUNDATION Jamaica Osorio on Instagram All My Relations on Instagram Support https://www.puuhuluhulu.com/ https://www.protectmaunakea.net/donate Music and Oli  Masa Kobayashi  Kanaeokana  La’ Howard Episode art by  Ciara Sana.

Angel On Top — 3x08 Quickening
It may be February, but allow us to transport you back to November 2001 for some network sweeps shenanigans in the form of a vampire pregnancy. Darla is about to give birth to a baby that may or may not "skitter" out of her, Holtz is armed with knowledge of the moon landing (but very little about Angel's current deal), and the creeps employed by Wolfram & Hart have never been creepier. Join your hosts LaToya Ferguson and Morgan Lutich (AKA the Cordelia and Fred of the Bufferingverse, AKA Bones and Also Bones, AKA the Gunn Squad, AKA Theodore K. Mullins and Frank Scabopolis) as they discuss "Quickening," a story about the literal horrors of birth *and* various baby-dissecting factions.
