FFR 141: Blade
1 hr

Welcome to the second episode in our spooky season series, revisiting classic, cult or nostalgic witch and vampire movies as chosen by our patrons. Today we’re traveling back to 1998, when Wesley Snipes starred as the titular vampire hunter, Blade. 9 years after Tim Burton’s Batman, and 20 years before the MCU’s Black Panther, Blade was the first Marvel Superhero theatrical release, the grandfather of every Marvel Superhero movie to follow. Join us as we dive into a grimdark version of LA, populated by blood and power thirsty vampires that can only be stopped by a stoic vampire/human hybrid seeking revenge.

Episode 136: A CLASH OF KINGS, CATELYN VII: "The Dark Knight (Part 2)"
Hello and welcome back to the NotACast, the one true chapter-by-chapter podcast going through A Song of Ice and Fire one chapter a week! In this episode, Catelyn riddles in the dark with Gollum/Jaime and discovers the horrible truth behind the backstory. This week, we: - Talk about the rules of the game and how playing this game demonstrates the arrested development of these Robert's Rebellion-era characters - Gape at Jaime for his casual admissions of truth and how Jaime is denying Catelyn catharsis with his admissions - Talk about vows and how it displays the rotten system of Westeros - Get our eyes opened specifically to the type of king that Jaime kingslayed - Sympathize with Jaime (of all people) because even when he tells the truth to Catelyn, she dismisses him as a kinslayer. - Debate about whether Catelyn was correct to release Jaime for Sansa. Next week: We're back in Winterfell with Theon as he continues to rule justly and nobly ... or makes a botch of it while having nightmares and getting owned by his sister again. And we'll be joined by a brand new special guest: Alisha Benton!| Our patreon: www.patreon.com/NotACastASOIAF Our twitter: twitter.com/NotACastASOIAF Our facebook: www.facebook.com/groups/289889118235797/ Our youtube page: www.youtube.com/channel/UCmmDfPdG…iew_as=subscriber Emmett's twitter: twitter.com/PoorQuentyn Jeff's twitter: twitter.com/BryndenBFish

Ep. 107: Lauren Christy
Today’s guest is a Grammy-nominated songwriter, producer, artist, and record label executive. Her journey into music began at the age of five when she found a piano buried in the garden at her parents’ house in South London. By the age of 19, she was recording her own songs, and soon after, she signed her first publishing deal with Allen Jacobs at EMI. And at 22, she signed a record deal at Mercury Records (with Tom Vickers and Ed Eckstine), relocated to Los Angeles, and started work on her first album. Her debut album self-titled garnered her a nomination for Best New Artist at the 1994 American Music Awards. Her single “The Color of the Night” was a top 10 hit on Adult Contemporary radio and also landed her a nomination for Best Song in a Motion Picture at the Golden Globes. As she started a family, she reinvented herself as the co-creator of The Matrix. Alongside creative partners Graham Edwards and Scott Spock, the trio wrote and produced Avril Lavigne’s worldwide phenomenon album ‘Let Go’ which included three international No. 1 hits: “Complicated,” “Sk8er Boi,” and “I’m With You”. For “Complicated,” the Matrix trio won the Ivor Novello Award for International Hit of The Year. The Matrix also received seven Grammy nominations including Producer of the Year (she is one of 7 women to ever be nominated). She is also a two-time Juno Award winner and a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award recipient. The Matrix has sold more than 30 million records and has worked with artists including Avril Lavigne, Jason Mraz, Shakira, Liz Phair, Korn, David Bowie, Christina Aguilera, Ricky Martin, Britney Spears, Rihanna, and Greyson Chance among many others. Her independent work includes Enrique Iglesias’s worldwide No. 1 hit “Tonight I’m Loving You,” as well as songs with Kelly Clarkson, Jason Derulo, Bebe Rexha, Iggy Azalea, Avril Lavigne, The Struts, and more. Recently she started her record label, Youth Be Served Records (YBS Records). The first signing is artist Jenn Bostic, whose ‘Take My Hand EP’ entered the iTunes Christian chart at No. 11. And her second signing is Australian artist Tassia Zappia, who is in the studio now with an expected release during 2020. And The Writer Is...Lauren Christy! This episode is sponsored by BMI.
