Episode 136: Sraey Evif Tsal Eht (“The Last Five Years”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 136: Sraey Evif Tsal Eht (“The Last Five Years”)

Hey, everyone! Sometimes a creator will decide to try something new, like starting at the end of a story and moving backward to the beginning. Sometimes they think, “Hmm, maybe that’s too unconventional, I should do it the normal way instead.” And sometimes they think, “Why not both?” And then cast Anna Kendrick in the movie.

Episode 40: Tapping Frustles (“Newsies: The Movie: The Musical: The Movie”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 40: Tapping Frustles (“Newsies: The Movie: The Musical: The Movie”)

Hey, everyone! Sorry we’re late this week; due to audio issues, we lost the episode we’d originally planned to post, so you get this one, which we recorded just last night!

We went to see a Broadway production of “Newsies” at the movie theatre (yup), and it was very different from the movie we grew up with! We do not refrain from spoilers in this episode, so if you have plans to see it yourself and want to go in with no knowledge of what was different and what stayed the same, hold off on this episode until after you’ve seen it.

Thanks to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”, and to Emily Kardamis (@corruptedgem on Twitter) for our awesome new logo, which may or may not have uploaded into iTunes and which you may or may not be looking at right now!

Episode 11: Nunabashedly Obsessed (“Hamilton” and “RENT”)

Unabashedly Obsessed Episode 11: Nunabashedly Obsessed (“Hamilton” and “RENT”)

Hey, everyone! Today we celebrate James’s birthday, and tackle the hard-hitting questions on everyone’s mind: How does Periscope work? How Does “Hamilton” compare to “RENT”? Just how smart IS Lin-Manuel Miranda? Was Alexander Hamilton the Kanye West of his time? Is waxing your ears a good idea, or a bad one?

Today’s review buzzword is “nun”, as James’s autocorrect seems to think he’s more into “Sister Act” than he actually is.

As always, special thanks to Jamie Chahine for our theme song, “Did You Guys Know There Was A Ladder Down Here?”
