Hello everyone, and welcome to another episode of Badland Bites! This week, Rhea and Destiny take along their little recorder to the wonderful Studio Gallery and record one of their live shows!
This week, Destiny and Rhea say goodbye to 2012 by going over lists of awesome things that happened to them! They also count down their favorite movies and jams of 2012, and gush about the cool people they met through doing the show. We also read an email from Jason “Frisbabe” Frisbie of Pool Party Radio!
This week, Rhea and Destiny talk about the films of Quentin Tarantino, including the amazing DJANGO UNCHAINED! They rank their favorites, discuss how his work touches them on a personal level, and how overall, he’s a righteous dude. We also discuss webcomics, Class of 1984, and Rhea brings back Comic Book Corner! WARNING: There are all sorts of spoilers for Django and Tarantino’s other work, so LISTEN AT YOUR OWN RISK, HOMIE.
This week, Rhea and Destiny get real jolly with talk of their favorite holiday movies, songs, and television specials! We also discuss dark and weird computer games, the new Superman movie trailer, and some Hobbit feelings. We treat you to a couple of songs from the Skull Sketches musical Rhea co-wrote, and Destiny reveals her love of Christmas Carol adaptations. Also: A Christmas Story vs. National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
There’s no theme this week, as Rhea is hard at work co-writing and starring in a Christmas musical! She and Destiny spend some time chatting about the junk they’ve been absorbing lately, such as Mad Ron’s Prevues from Hell, heavy metal sexism, and the cinematic “genius” of Neil Breen. There’s also audio viewer mail and teen movie talk! Look out for the cold hand of Kurt Cobain’s ghost in this one, kids!
After such a long hiatus, the internet herself begs the Badland Ladies to come back! They discuss all the movies watched while away, including Skyfall, Harold and Maude, and Lincoln. Rhea and Destiny also come to blows (almost) over Beyond the Black Rainbow and Black Sabbath (the Mario Bava movie, not the band!) After catching up,it’s time to go through every single movie directed by JOHN CARPENTER and give an opinion or two. Tell us how much you missed us: badlandgirls at gmail dot com!
This week, we’re getting real spooky as we kick off horror month! Rhea talks robot bees, takes back last week’s Terminator feelings, and discusses the fine manga of CLAMP. Destiny watches a horror film every day, questions the death of cinema, and is attacked by animals in her sleep. We also discuss pop culture-related fears from childhood, including mirrors, Are You Afraid of the Dark?, and a particular spooky vhs tape.
This week, we conclude the Ultimate Parker Project with Crank 2! Rhea talks comics, Destiny responds to an old AV Club article, and we have a lot of feelings about that Scarlett Johansson album full of Tom Waits covers. We also discuss the weird world of ASMR, goosebump music, and shitty media from our childhood.
This week, we Skype-it-up all the way to Georgia to speak to teacher, writer, PhD student, and transmedia editor Alexandra Kingsley! We get cerebral about fandom/fandom platforms, boy band aesthetics, and the easily-forgotten history of internet fan culture. We also break down what’s wrong with dissecting One Direction fan behavior on Tumblr, freak out about mens touching one another, and convince you to play the very dangerous Badland Girls drinking game.
