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.

Hot on the heels of the last Iconochromatic comes another one. Of it. This episode’s vague reviews are on the following films:

The Skin I Live In
Adventures in Babysitting
Ipcress File
21
Sucker Punch
50/50

And music is provided by
Lloyd Cole and The Commotions
Toto Coelo

There’s no recent films in there as Underworld 4 was so bad it put me off going to the cinema for a while.

Anyway that’s it. I’d be more witty or something but I’m clearly not as good as Duncan at this sort of thing. Sort of thing.

A real treat for you, dear listeners, with this week’s podcast. I think this episode will really highlight how in touch we are with our demographic. We bring you a live-play of the Jason Donovan “Straight From The Heard” boardgame!

We discover that either there are some pretty glaring game design flaws at work; or Duncan & Derek cannot grasp the rules of a board game designed for 7-year-old girls.

Podcast link below this picture.

Jason Donovan - Straight From The Heart!

Derek and Duncan give a running commentry on the 2011 Eurovision Song Contest – but don’t worry, we skipped out all the music! Increasingly drunken slurring, songs making Duncan quite angry, and insulting the dead in this half-hour-and-a-bit special.

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.

iconochromatic


Reviews of films Sucker Punch, The Eagle, The Secret of Moonacre, and the game Railworks, all whilst we travel by foot to a mystery location.
