Rounders

What Derek doesn’t realize is that we don’t actually speak English – to us it sounds like a tongue shared by our listeners, but we actually speak like “Yip Yip ack ACK yip”. So in addition to converting the files and mixing them, I have to run the audio through a translation program with human speech synthesis. Since there’s no “posh Doncaster” accent freely available, I had to write this software myself – and rewrite it every time because for some reason our non-euclidian alien tongue corrupts the program as it is fed through. Not only that, for some piddling reason, I can’t use a high-level programming language. I have to write it in binary machine code using a microscopic magnet to directly flip the bits on my hard drive plates.

Anyway, we talk about The Hunger Games fresh from the screen, but we ramble on a bit too long. Fortunately a cartoon monkey saves the day.

We are praiseworthy of Take Shelter and we ponder the physics behind Captain Forever.

We talk about: Numberjacks, Exam, The Long Goodbye, Community and Safe House.

Spot the deliberate factual errors. We also find out that drawing pins rolling pins are useful for “emphasizing your points.”

We discuss the prologue of Rubber, then we watch Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. The film. Then we talk about it.

We’ve just seen Super 8! Several weeks ago. Forgot I recorded this. Sorry.
“Enjoy”.

Despite Duncan’s claim that this is our 12th Pediconochromatic, it is actually the 11th.
If you like these, you might like to go back and investigate Pedi #10, which now links to the correct episode. I think. Let’s call the whole thing off.

Here we review Cargo and Captain America: The First Avenger. A young teenager is excited about World at War.

We string phenomes together: Any resemlance to reviews of The Wrestler, The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo and Senna is purely apophenia.

A bit of a themed Pedi’ this week. Derek talks about Water for Elephants (2011) which is a film. That he saw. Water for elephants… why! They must be thirsty! Duncan talks about Thirst (2009) which is also a film. As usual we struggle to form a coherent and insightful dialogue, even with the help of a cheat-sheet of pretentious phrases taken from Sound & Sight.

Another thirty minutes of Derek and Duncan aimlessly wandering around Doncaster whilst emiting gutteral intonations, forming compressions waves in the air, picked up by a small diaphram and converted into an electric signal, compressed, then yadda yadda you know the rest.

Reviews of Scream 4 and Never Let Me Go, and various bits of waffle.
