Live from the Gardens: The Suspicion

We talk anteaters on this episode of Live from the Gardens about the morphs from Animorphs #24: The Suspicion!

Are all anteaters female? Why do insects stick to an anteater’s tongue? What is so special about the anteater’s stomach acid? As usual, tune in to find out the juicy answers and maybe, who knows, have a few chuckles along the way.

Hypothetical Question of the Week: Would you rather have the ridiculously long tongue of the anteater or would you rather have their claws and why?

55 – Puppetry & Spark (360 VR) w. Anna Fiddler-Bertig

We’re talkin’ puppets and more with artist Anna Fiddler-Bertig and her short film Spark (360 VR).

We explain what this film is, where it came from, and, most importantly, how it’s made with puppets & green-screens! We discuss the process of shooting miniatures, characters, sets, and compositing it all into an actual film. We also talk about all of Brendan James Boyd’s spectacular work constructing these puppets & environments.

Make sure to get in touch with Anna & the rest of their team via their Facebook.

23 – Like Water for Chocolate (1992)

Thanks to our listeners for suggesting the 1992 Mexican film Como Agua Para Chocolate, or as we’ll be referring to it, Like Water for Chocolate.

In this episode we’ll be talking about the differences between breasts & boobies, food idioms, and all the ways in which a traditional family drama can be heightened – so much – with just a little bit of magical food (and probably some witches).

Lick the Face of a Football Legend

CHECK OUT THE AD HERE: https://youtu.be/raBYO0Jggko

Remember collectible plates? Remember how they’re not a thing anymore, and for good reason? Well, Just Eats doesn’t! Quinn and Mikael deliver a quick header to “Lick the Face of a Football Legend,” the Just Eats ad that robs John Barnes of whatever dignity he had left after making that WONDERFUL rap music video.

There’s not much to fix here but the inADmissible boys try their best!

Blade Trinity 2004

Mitch Dexter joins me in the basement to round out the Blade trilogy where we discuss if vampires sweat, how this movie is both a crappier version of Deadpool and a similar level of good (as to say not) as X-Men Apocalypse and we also discuss both of his podcasts! ( Wenghtalk Radio and We Watch Food, both on Collective Legacy) All that and more this week on 2 Nerds in a Basement!

Animorphs #24: The Suspicion

We’re back for another Cassie book! This time, the Fanimorphs talk about Animorphs #24: The Suspicion, the one where the tiny but mighty Helmacrons try to steal the morphing cube.

We talk some hard science this episode: quantum foam, tiny physics, creationism, the South Park video game, Harry Potter…well, I guess maybe not ALL super scientific but you know what I mean.

22 – Chocolat (2000)

Magic realism or chocolate witchcraft? That’s the biggest question we have about 2000’s Chocolat.

We debate how we would use our chocolate powers, if we were wandering coco-shamans. We discuss how the film differs from the source novel (and how that’s a good thing). We talk about all the wonderful performances from so many actors in this tasty film.

53 – Art, Representation, & Realism w. Patrick Higgins

Artist Patrick Higgins is with us to talk all about his art and his upcoming new show On the Green Seesaw.

We discuss the tension between realism & representation when creating a static image; we go over Patrick’s history as an artist; we also break down the ways in which you can create an engaged audience by obscuring features of your subject. All cool stuff.

Speaking of cool stuff, go search Patrick’s website for reference to what we’re talking about and what you could see at his new show!
