The Badger Favourite Things – Movies

favorite-things

I have been thinking about this for a while now. Listing things that make me happy, think, laugh or cry or all of those things. They are positives when my depression or anxiety gets the better of me. They mean something to mean on some level. They may reflect who I am as person in some way.

I also like making lists so I thought that this would be a good thing as well and I thought I would start with movies because this has gone through a bit of change of late.

For the longest time my favourite movie was The Usual Suspects, probably one of the best pieces of work by Bryan Singer and Kevin Spacey but this opinion has changed dramatically. Don’t get me wrong I still think that it is a great movie but I don’t think I could ever watch it again. Primarily because of the conduct of both Mr Singer and Spacey in recent years. I know it is kind of ridiculous that my opinion has changed because of the actions of the director and one member of the cast but I can’t help it. It is just the way that I feel.

So I am going to list my favourite movies. I doubt that any of them could be considered the greatest movie ever made and some of them probably have seriously bad reviews and it will probably be animation heavy because I like animation a lot. They will have every have something that made me feel something in some way or spoke to me on some level.

Also I know what my new favourite movie is and I am going to leave that one to last and if you have read any of my previous posts or have read any of my reviews on my other blog you might be able to work it out. All other movies in this list are not going to be in order and that will probably be what happens in most of these kind of posts I make. I will know what my all-time favourite is but everything else can swap and change.

This list will show I am very much a modern person as they are all released within the last 25 years and all bar two of them I saw in theatre and the only reason that didn’t see them in theatre was because of timing or I found the movie after the fact. Also these movies made the list because I have watched them multiple times and have yet to lose interest in them and remember them all fondly.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner Azkaban – Alphonso Cuaron (2004)

Since I am a huge Harry Potter fan I thought I should get my favourite movie of the series out first. Now I know this one is a little divisive as a lot of fans dislike this one but for some reason it is my favourite. It might not have stuck as true to the books as the first two did but it got the right ones and told the story and made it feel magical to me unlike some of the ones that follow, especially Goble of Fire, which by the way is my favourite book, though Azkaban is my second favourite.

The Upside of Anger – Mike Binder (2005)

Now this is one that might not be known all that well as it is small movie that probably didn’t get a lot of attention but probably should have. The story follows a middle aged woman, Terry Wolfmeyer (Joan Allen) and mother of four girls who believes that her husband has run off to Sweden with his secretary. She forms a relationship with her neighbour Denny (Kevin Costner) who is a retired baseball player and a fellow alcoholic. The movie has a strong female narrative with each of the female characters having a clearly defined and all the performances are great and believable.

Inside Out – Pete Doctor (2015)

The first of 3 animated movies and strangely enough the three that I have are all done in different production styles. Inside Out is the computer generated one from Pixar (naturally). This one made me cry but I think all three of my animation choices did, well that I can remember. It is a wonderful exploration of emotion inside the head of a preteen girl and how every emotion is important even sadness.

Just Like Heaven – Mark Waters (2005)

I have mentioned this movie in relation to the music and also because of Mark Ruffalo but it is also a favourite of mine and if it is on in my house I will always sit and watch it. It is a beautiful movie about love, loss and fate and it has and will always make me cry. The story surrounds two lonely people who are brought together in a very unusual way, one of them is in a coma and her spirit haunts the other.

The Avengers – Joss Whedon (2012)

Well I am a geek and this is the first of two super-hero themed movies that I have included in this list. I personally think this is the best out the Marvel movies and it is why it was on top of my Marvel Movie list post which admittedly I will need to update but will wait until after Infinity War Part 2 comes out and I have caught up as I have yet to see Ant-Man and the Wasp and will probably not see Captain Marvel in theatre as I am not interested and neither is the Eagle, though this opinion might change, there is time after all.

Wonder Woman – Patty Jenkins (2017)

If I was going to have a Marvel movie on the list I had to have a DC one and I was naturally going to go with Wonder Woman. It is the only movie on the list that I actually went to the cinema twice to see, opening weekend with the Eagle in Gold Class and again a couple of weeks later as a girl’s night with my mother and nieces. Though admittedly it does lag a little in the end with the revelation of who Ares is it is still my favourite of the DC movies so far. Try to beat it Aquaman!!

The Lion King – Roger Allers and Rob Minkoff (1994)

This is my favourite Disney animated movie and the most original of them all, though that is under debate I guess with some comparing it to Kimba the White Lion, which I can see as I remember watching Kimba as a kid. Being Disney Animation it has a wonderful soundtrack with music by Tim Rice, Elton John and Hans Zimmer.

Empire Records – Allan Moyle (1995)

Another movie with a wonderful soundtrack but then how could it not considering that the movie is set in a record store. It is a wonderful cast with a young Renee Zellweger, Liv Tyler, Anthony LaPaglia, Robin Tunney and my favourite Rory Cochrane. This is also one of the movies that I did not see in cinema and found it later on.

Dogma – Kevin Smith (1999)

I will happily admit that I am fan of Kevin Smith though admittedly it more for his personality and his podcasts than his actual directing ability, though his work with The Flash and Supergirl has been good. I think his early work is great and if I hadn’t chosen Dogma for this I would have gone with Chasing Amy. This movie is very funny and shouldn’t be taken seriously, but then I am not overly religious.

Drum roll please………………..

Your Name – Makoto Shinkai (2016)

Well is anyone really surprised that Your Name is now my favourite movie of all time. I have probably talked just as much about this movie as I have of Harry Potter or DC in posts in either of my blogs. Just about everything about this movie is perfect in my eyes. The visuals, the characterisation, the music. I actually have one of the songs in my head at the moment. I listen to the soundtrack most days and watch it at least once a week. This is the other movie I didn’t see in cinema but that was because of limited release, timing and I don’t think anyone would have come with me to see it.

I mentioned Chasing Amy and I guess you call that an honourable mention but I have one more that I debated about including in this list and that is another Mike Binder movie called Reign Over Me. Though it stars Adam Sandler it is one of his more serious turns and it a story of helping someone overcome great grief after the most horrible of tragedies.

Badger Sounds

 

I mentioned in my recent review that for BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad that I usually don’t pay much attention to the music when I watch movies or TV, unless of course it is part of the plot of the movie or show is musical in nature. With anime, for some reason, I do pay attention. I don’t know why, maybe it is because the first anime that I really go into as an adult was Cowboy Bebop and music does play a part in it  and that in turn makes me pay attention whenever I watch anime whether it significant to the plot or not.

That is not to say that at time the score or a particular song played in a show does not grab my attention. I remember going to see The Talented Mr Ripley with a friend and though the movie was good it was music that caught my attention more than Jude Law or Matt Damon’s acting. It was the same with Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban though I guess Harry is a little different than Mr Ripley as I am a big fan of the books and had seen the previous two movies. It was just something about the music that caught my attention this time and that hadn’t happened the first two times. Prisoner, by the way, is my favourite out the movies and probably my second favourite book.

Now I have already mentioned that I am already susceptible to music used in anime but I have to make mention of one particular anime that this really stood out to me. It is a movie called Your Name and the music was supplied by a Japanese rock/pop band called Radwimps. This is, in my opinion, an almost perfect movie with the story, animation and music all working together in tandem to make it so. I actually bought the soundtrack to this movie because I enjoyed the music so much and have used three of the songs from it as my Song of the Day (see below).     

Now let move on from soundtracks as at times it is not the score but a song that will jump out at me as it elevates the scene in some way and makes you think or feel. Most recently that happened with me when I saw Deadpool 2. I guess I should give a spoiler warning here but near the end there is a sequence where Deadpool “dies” and is reunited with Vanessa, who had been killed at the beginning of the movie. While this is happening a-ha’s Take On Me is playing though it is an unplugged version of the song. Just the combination of what was happening and the song had me crying. It stuck with me so much so that I woke up with it in my head and I used that version of the song as my Song of the Day.

I found Amos Lee the same way when his song Colors was played during a scene near the end of the romantic comedy Just Like Heaven and to this day I still cry at the end of that movie because of that scene and that song. I have since bought just about all of his albums. Just Like Heaven also made me take more notice of Mark Ruffalo and the world is just so much better with him in it. This of course takes me back to the reason why I am writing this post as he is also the male lead of Begin Again and I have the song Lost Stars in my head for the last week or so. BTW I also own the soundtrack to that movie as well.

A Badger’s Idea

6e970331d77a3bb0f07c464d283ab0b6-honey-badger-php

I have mentioned before that I like to do written roleplay and in particular Harry Potter roleplay. I was a member of a site for a many years that I eventually was a mod on before it was shut down and I have been in and out sites since even running my own for a while. I was a member of site at the end of last year beginning of this but sort of lost interest mainly because I believed that the site didn’t have balance, this I believe is my anxiety speaking, and since then I have done numerous searches for a new site to play on and have found that most sites have the same issue or there is an element in the plot that I don’t like or think is feasible even though in most cases it is an AU site.

They all seem to be weighted towards the dark side of the force, to borrow a Star Wars phrase, and it bothers me greatly. Look, I see the allure in playing the dark-wizard but if you give the them an extra power or just power all together you have to give the opposition an opposing power or something they can use to fight back. You can’t just have a site full of Death Eaters and no Order or Order like group to fight back with. It’s no fun trying to play a hero or just a neutral character when the scale is in heavily in favour of the dark or dark sympathetic, especially when you feel like you have to be secretive all the time.

So I have been trying to think of a plotline that I can start my own site with and I think I have it but I really need feedback on it and also assistance. I was trying to find a website when I can voice such a thing but had no luck and had put something up in OOC section of one of the sites that I am a member of but I have had no responses so I thought that I might put it up here and see if I get a nibble.

The missing 20.

 

It is a little known tale that came from the second war. One month after the death of Albus Dumbledore 20 persons with magic in their blood disappeared. Differing in age, from the age of 15 and up, blood-status, and sex vanished without a trace within a span of a day. All disappearances were reported to the Ministry but with He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named and his Death Eaters on the verge of taking of the Ministry of Magic the missing were soon forgotten and were assumed either dead or had left the country.

 

June 2017, 20 years later the 20 reappear. 10 appear in Glastonbury the other 10 in Seven Dials, London. They all appear to have not aged but are aware that they have.

**********

Now it is a work in progress as I want there to be a reason for their disappearance, but maybe that can be a part of the plot, and I also want them to have obtained something while they were away though I don’t necessarily want it to be the same thing though whatever it will be will either fall on the dark or light side. Where they arrived will define what side of the line are aligned with as I see Glastonbury as the light and Seven Dials as the dark though I guess this could change if a different location suits better.

So if there are any role players out there and think this a good idea and would like to assist I will be mighty grateful.

A Badger’s Decision

i2bdon25e225802599t2bthink2bpeople2bunderstand2bhow2bstressful2bit2bis2bto2bexplain2bwhat25e225802599s2bgoing2bon2bin2byour2bhead2bwhen2byou2bdon25e225802599t2beven2bunde

Okay so my anxiety has gotten worse so much so that I had to leave and go home on Friday of last week because I just could not focus on anything. I had to explain the feeling to my boss because he has never had the feeling before. We broke it down to having approx 10 coffees in a short amount of time.  

 

I have put it down to my medication as I had been given a generic form of my medication and it was making me wired. I went to get my normal medication but my chemist had stopped getting it and had only the one that using and another that was way more expensive. I am still taking the medication but I am making sure that I eat before taking it as the anxiety isn’t as bad if I eat first.

Since it has been two weeks since my birthday I have come to the conclusion that it probably wasn’t that entirely that is the source of my current lapse. I am thinking that is the decisions that I have made that might be a contributing factor. That being my decision to move in with my bf, sister and her bf and also to return to study. I have a real bad habit of making decisions on the spur of the moment and they figuring out the consequences later on. That last time this happened I had got together with my bf, decided to study and also agreed to go overseas. Two out of three were good decisions the third one I never finished.

Another decision I made was to get back into Harry Potter written role play. I have been wanting to for a while it was just trying to find the right site and I think I found it though it is not exactly what I was looking for. I have only played in and around the Voldemort/Harry timeline and up to 10-20 years after the books were set and also in a PG kind of atmosphere. This time around is set in 2053 and it definitely a Adults website so much so that they have included a comfortability form to complete.

The staff and members are really friendly and I joined using the son of a character that I have had for a while. The good thing with this site is that they don’t mind you having multiple characters and to a certain extent they even encourage it so in the future I might bring in other characters that I have created. I just have to work on how they fit into the story being played out.

The site is called The Next Incantation and if you have any interest in role play I would love to see you there I am playing a character called Mack Wilde there.

The other thing that I have done recently is get back into Anime. Because of my DC binge I had stopped watching anime altogether but started up again over the weekend. I decided to re-watch Fairy Tail starting with the Phantom Lord arc and am currently on the Oración Seis arc. Though I love this show and love Erza and Jellal as a couple for some reason I don’t enjoy the arc’s where Jellal is prominent like this one and the previous Tower of Heaven Arc. Maybe it is because I don’t like seeing Erza vulnerable or her past and Jellal always brings that out in her.

Badger Vs Superman

7aad3nu

So I haven’t really completed my binge of DC. I am naturally still reading various DC titles in the comics mainly the Rebirth titles but I am also reading the New 52 Justice League Dark and I have the Grayson books as well. I went and saw Suicide Squad which I did a review for and I also got a Harley inspired tattoo. I finished Justice League Unlimited and am have started to watch Batman Beyond season 2 and also Superman the animated series as well.

I think I might have mentioned it somewhere is a previous post that I have a bit of an issue with Superman which is kinda funny because the other superhero that I have I an issue with also starts with an S and ends with a man. I mean I don’t have this issue with Supergirl at all and there is little difference between the two, power wise. With this watch of the animated series I am trying to find at the very least an affection for the character.

Maybe a little history of my interactions with the Man of Steel. I do remember seeing the Christopher Reeve movies when I was younger and they were alright. The next time he popped up on my radar was the Adventures of Lois and Clark and I remember watching the show and looking forward to it to an extent but that was more because Dean Cain is/was really good looking and I was a teenage girl who had a bit of a crush. I never watched Smallville but my boyfriend keeps on urging  me to watch it as he is a big fan of the show. I never saw the Brandan Routh Superman movie.

I have seen all the DC cartoon movies that he has appeared in as well as Young Justice, Justice League Unlimited and that completely horrible Superman/Shazam: Return of Black Adam short. I have also seen Man of Steel which I don’t have any issues with on its own as many people do. But as I still have no affection for him at all.

It can’t be his powers or background/story because as I said earlier that Supergirl has the same powers and comes from a similar situation as him. Or should say that I can’t use it as an excuse because I do have a little bit of an issue with the powers thing but for some reason it doesn’t bother me so much with her as it does with him. Maybe the little feminist is coming out of me. I mean if you think about men are already faster and stronger than women so on that score all the yellow sun did was make him more stronger and faster than the average man. But he can fly, shoot heat beams out of his eyes, blow super cold air and see through walls that aren’t lined with lead. If he wasn’t raised by Jonathon and Martha Kent he might of ended up a pervert with super powers. He could have ended up the alien that ripped off the roof of the White House.

Maybe it is his personality a bit as to me as Clark Kent he is not that interesting and even the Superman persona is a little  boring for my liking. He is not gritty enough I think and that is why I have a preference for Batman and even Bruce Wayne is quite an interesting person. Personality wise I don’t have the same issue with Supergirl but then I really only know her from the TV show and little from Justice League Unlimited but I am going off the TV version more because I like that version more because of the goofy/geeky girl is probably more like me and she reminds me of Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen/The Flash and that is probably my favourite show at the moment. I have to admit though their costuming/secret identity is a bit weak as well. It surprises me that no-one worked it out sooner.

I know he is a hero and a super one at that but the fact that he tends to drop everything to save Lois Lane is a little annoying and kind of angers me. Lois is a strong, smart, stubborn and capable woman and I know that she tends to get herself into more trouble than most women do because of these qualities but I would also like to think that because of these qualities she could probably find a way out of the situations she gets into, unless it involves falling from ten or more story buildings without a parachute. I mean she probably did before Superman showed up in Metropolis but he does not really give the opportunity too and just swoops in to save her.  He has a saving people complex like Harry Potter (see I worked him in) but only for Lois Lane.

My comic knowledge of him is only really through the Rebirth titles and he is not coming across very interesting in any form at the moment. The New Superman, the one set in China, from the get go I didn’t really like because he comes across as a bit of an arrogant bully with a chip on his shoulder and the regular Superman in Superman and Action Comics is just too confusing.

Maybe if I keep plugging on he might just become interesting.

Bibs And Bobs Of The Badger

I watched Avatar this past weekend so I guess a hooray is in order that I got that out of the way. All I am going to say about the movie is meh. It was pretty to look at but I don’t think that it is a great of a movie that people make it out to be. Technically I didn’t have to watch it as my niece wants to see the Batman Vs Superman and she could have gone in place of my BF but we weren’t doing anything on Sunday and I was just pleased that I didn’t fall asleep. 

My headaches have gotten worse to the point where I have had to leave work early on Friday and have made an appointment to see a doctor. The headaches, anxiety and drowsiness are not a good combination especially while I am at work. I am hoping that the doctor will find a better medication to put me to combat this as I think the medication is not helping with any of three symptoms as it is. I also think that maybe they will need to check my B12 levels when it comes to the drowsiness.

 

My sister has dropped to a new low. First off that trip to Hervey Bay has her needing to appear in court as she was caught there driving without a licence. She claims that she got a message relieving her off this but we all think that this is not true and she will most likely get arrested. We believe that this is not true mainly because she has been hallucinating a bit lately. Early Saturday night she woke most of us up because she woke up feeling as someone was holding a gun to her head. She also believed that her children were there and our cousin who lived in Melbourne was there. We did not have the girls that weekend but she kept asking how they and our cousin were.

 

Later on she asked her father to take her to the hospital because of her ‘depression’. She was put on a drip and sent home. The following day she asked her father to take her to a local hotel in which she stayed the night there. Apparently she did not like the room service so she deliberately checked out late. They charged her extra for the late checkout and she got pissed off. My mother picked her up and she demanded to be taken to her bank to get the money back but my mother refused and told her that is not how it works. This of course pissed off my sister. She is also refusing to pay the money she owes for the computers I ‘rented’ for her because she says that I owe her $1000 because of the cashback. The cashback was never that much and beside that money is all gone anyway due to bills that I had to pay due because I am now left short due to that. I also think she has forgotten how the world works in general. 

 

On a different note all together I am having a bit an identity crisis due to Pottermore. I decided to redo the sorting quiz and this time around I came up Ravenclaw I was not happy with this answer so I took it again. I again came up Ravenclaw. I have nothing against Ravenclaw but never once thought of myself as one leaning always to Hufflepuff and Gryffindor.

DumbleBadger

I was not originally going to have another post today but my sisters behaviour last night compelled me to post as it annoyed me greatly. In her rants and mumbles she kept on talking about that the life that she leads now is not the life that she wanted or was meant to have and that everything that had has occurred in her life was forced on her by others and that she had no choice. These rumblings were all because she had no money and there for no cigarettes.

This lead me to think of free will which of course lead me to think of Harry Potter and in particular Dumbledore. My sister is the one that introduced me to JK Rowling’s world which has had a massive effect on me and I can’t believe that she has forgotten the story and also the major that is the choices that we make are what makes us who we are.

In the books Dumbledore refers to the choices people make twice. The first time in second book Chamber of Secrets when he says to Harry that “it is the choice that show what we truly are, not our abilities.” The second times is in my favourite of the books Goblet of Fire where he address the whole of the school after the death of Cedric Diggory, may Merlin bless his soul, “Remember, if the time should come when you have to make between what is right and what is easy what happened to a boy who was kind and brave…”

Now how this applies to my sister is that that no matter she is saying right now or when she is suffering from whatever withdrawal that is I going through is that it was her choice to date and marry the man that she did and have his children. She was not forced to take up smoking and take the drugs that she took. She might had been encouraged in some way to do so but she could have easily said no. It is was her choice to sign away the townhouse that she owned to him and sell the house and sign the paperwork that gave him more money when they separated, she was advised to do neither but she still did it. She might have really had no choice to come and live in our house but at that time she had nowhere else to go but she does have a “boyfriend” and she can stay with him but choose not to and then complains about it.

I really don’t know what life she thinks she should have had but there is no point in complaining about what you don’t have and focus on what you do because that will only make you unhappy and those around you unhappy. I never once thought that I would be the age that I am and have never married and still living with my parents, but I am and I am not going to complain about it and blame anyone else for it because it is my own doing and fault that it is the way that is it. I have a roof over my head, a good job, a family, friends, boyfriend and dog who love me and who I love in return. I have travelled and have hobbies that keep me entertained. It might not be much but it is all that I need.

Sure I suffer from anxiety, depression and headaches but I don’t see the point of complaining about what I don’t have and what I should have because that will only make me miserable. This leads to another Dumbledore quote and what I will leave us with today

Spooky Badger

Since I am not sure if I will be posting again before Halloween on Saturday I thought I would use this post to celebrate the holiday and spooky things.

In Australia Halloween isn’t really celebrated though admittedly it is growing in popularity. I do remember however when growing up in Melbourne that we did go Trick or Treating but when we moved to Sydney it wasn’t a done thing. Now I live in Brisbane and we have never had kids come to our door asking for treats though we always have something set out just in case.

This year I will attending at Halloween party thrown by my younger brother. It looks like it is going to be a big do, all up. They just bought the house earlier this year so it is also a house warming party as such. I will probably just wear my Harry Potter robes and carry one of the wands that I own as a costume though it is not compulsory to wear a costume.

I am not a fan of spooky/horror movies at all I have seen a couple in my life time which I have willingly and unwillingly watched. Strangely enough I do like to read about them on Wikipedia and read reviews for them as well. I have probably seem more anime and TV with horror themes than actual movies. Some of the anime that I have watched in full or seen episodes off just as a test to see if I will watch the whole thing are:

Black Blood Brothers

Ghost Hound

Ghost Hunt

Hellsing

High School of the Dead – Watched most of it but didn’t like it all that much due to the women all having big boobs

Paranoia Agent

Blue Exorcist – Both the series and the movie

Blood: the Last Vampire and Blood+

Vampire Hunter D

Tokyo Ghoul – I have watched a couple of eps of this and might go back to it

Deadman Wonderland – I have watched a couple of eps of this and might go back to it

Future Diary – I have watched a couple of eps of this and might go back to it

Supernatural: The Anime Series

With that last one I am I guess I should include Supernatural the TV show as one of the horror related programs that I have watched. I am up to date with the show though the most recent episode I haven’t seen yet as it has not aired here and won’t until Monday. I like the show and own the whole series on iTunes and have a version all the Pop Vinyl characters. Sam and Dean guard my desk at work along with Darryl Dixon from the Walking Dead, which I will get to later. I also have Castiel, Crowley and Charlie at home. I also listen to a re-watch podcast for them that I should have mentioned yesterday but forgot. It is called Supernatural: The Road So far and is hosted by two girls Sam and Malik though Sam used to host with a guy named Matt who had to leave though he comes and hosts every now and again. They have a great Facebook group as well.


Now The Walking Dead… Look I am really not that into zombies, though I do love iZombie which I guess we can add in a way to the list but that has a lot little more humour in it than Supernatural and definitely more than The Walking Dead. I have not seen all of the show. I got through season 4 and then lost interest but at one stage, especially in the first couple of seasons I was really into it and remember having this aha moment after Shane died in relation to the disease but sort of forgot about it. Might have to re-watch the first two seasons again to see if I can get that moment back and work on a proper theory. I just need to find the time…

Other horror themed shows that I have watched in full or not are:

Constantine

Grimm

The X-Files

Twin Peaks

Fringe

Pod Badge

I mentioned in an earlier post that I listen to podcasts and I really enjoy that though at the moment I think I am listening to too many but honestly I do not know which ones to give up because I enjoy them all. My love of podcast started with Harry Potter of course because all my fandom related loves lead back to Harry.

It started with Mugglecast, the Mugglenet Podcast, which is still going strong after 10 years. That lead to Pottercast but admittedly I stopped listening after a while to that one. That lead on to a series of Kevin Smith podcasts but I have cut that down to three being Fatman of Batman, Hollywood Babble-On and the Nooner podcast. Back to Harry though I also listen to Alohomora which is a re-read podcast and Mugglenet Academia which are both connected to Mugglenet.

MugglenetBatman On BatmanNooner

Hollywood Babble OnAlohomora

Other fandom related podcasts that I listen to are the After Buzz podcasts for Arrow and True Detective, The Thunder Quack podcasts for Arrow called Quiver and the one for Doctor Who called Talking Timelords.. I used to listen to another Doctor Who one called the Impossible Girls which was a female podcast for the series but one of the hosts would swear a lot and that bugged me. I know that is quite weird considering that Kevin Smith and his range of podcast are not one to hold back on language but for some reason it did with this one. I also listen to a podcast called The Flash which is of course for the TV show

ABTV TD ABTV Arrow Quiver

Andrew Sims from Mugglecast started his own website called Hypable and I listen to a series of podcast released from his website . They are their Hype podcast which covers major entertainments stories that had happen during the week. Hero Hype which covers comic book super heroes and the various TV Shows and news in relation to any movies being released. Re-Watchable which I think I mentioned in my Avatar post. I don’t listen to this one all the time as I haven’t watched all the shows that they have covered.

HypeHero Hyperewatchable

The last of their podcasts that I listen to is called Onceable and this covers the show Once Upon A Time. There are two other shows that I listen too for this show that being Once podcast and Welcome to Storybrooke. The Once podcast has two podcast released during the week the first is a short initial reactions to the episode and the second later on is a little more in depth with a spoiler section at the end. The show is hosted by Daniel J Lewis and   Jeremy Loughlin for initial reactions and they come back for the full one with the addition of Erin Cruz. Their spoiler section is done by Hunter Hathaway and Jaqueline.

OnceableOnce

Greetings from Storybrooke is hosted by Bill Meeks and Anne-Marie De Simone and their show is a little more light hearted and has a lot more audience participation from regular listeners who listen live to the show. They start the show with the rhyming summary for the show and though go through key points of the episode going over what they like and don’t like. They end the discussion part of the show with an random scale (ie out of 553 cold slices of lasagne from Granny’s). They then talk news, ratings and feedback. They also host another show that I listen to called Legends of Gotham about the show Gotham and that follows the same format.

Greetings Legends
