Episode 12.5: No Gods or Man, Only Theme Parks

Gott ist tot. Gott bleibt tot. Und wir haben ihn mit einem Themenpark ersetzt.

This month we actually did the impossible. We actually made a half an hour episode talking about a ~12 ish minute long amusement park ride. Have you ever seen another podcast attempt such a thing?  Yessir, it’s the Pirates of the Caribbean ride, at California Disneyland.


Show-notes:


1:52 The last ride he himself had a hand in, not the last one his cry-self had a hand in.
10:41 This song in case anyone wanted to hear it for some reason. Most people don’t know this, but Walt is actually the one doing all the vocals in this. That’s why the audio sucks, cause it was recorded through ice.
11:21 Little do most people know, this early Pirates poster was actually designed by cryo-Walt. No wonder it sucks.
13:02 It’s Walt Disney’s cryo-chamber.
13:56 Wish I could’ve been there on the day Johnny Depp was there. Seeing a famous pirate like Jack Sparrow play an actor like Johnny Depp would’ve been awesome.
15:28 This dog comes to terms with Walt Disney’s still-alive cryo-preserved body as his world goes up in flames. “This is fine,” he says, finally putting his past doubts behind him and accepting it all in his last moments. What a true hero.
21:42 If you don’t already know, Club 33 is Disneyland’s exclusive club. $50,000 down payment to get in plus $15,000 per year, so it’s actually not that expensive. Benefits of joining include access to an exclusive restaurant, alcohol in Disneyland, getting a cameo in a Disney movie, and free viewing of Walt Disney’s cryo-body.

Episode 12: The World According to Johnny Depp

Johnny Depp’s word is law. It is the only law.

This month Kiyan and Dylan have returned to watch yet another movie trilogy. As they do every other month. But this month they’ve got a bit of a supernatural bent, because it’s Pirates of the Caribbean. Featuring an extensive discussion about the Pirates ride, which is something that we have personal experience with. That’s a first for this podcast I think.


Show-notes:


2:15 Eisner and Verbinski clashed over what to include on the original poster for Pirates 1.
3:07 Apparently it’s Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh Eating, Hellbound, Zombified Living Dead Part 2: In Shocking 2-D.
17:14 1500s.
19:55 Good old Johnny wanted to make a movie his kids could watch so he made Pirated-R Rats of the Cari-PG-13-en.
20:25 Pirates.
24:21 The world according to Orlando Bloom.
24:43 Press Kit of the Caribbean.
33:25 Elliot and Rossio predict this podcast…
57:20 Multiple sources on the internet said this was true, so it has to be true.
57:57 3 seconds of google didn’t immediately give me the answer, so I gave up.

Too lazy to timestamp all this VFX crap, so here it is. Also too lazy to make link text:

Episode 102: Behind a Wall of Incomprehensible Nonsense

I’m not entirely certain what the title means either.

This week Kiyan and Dylan become acquainted with one of the more well known Doctor Who writers. Or, to be more specific, one of the more well known Doctor Who writers, outside of the Doctor Who fan circle. Yes, it’s The Pirate Planet, written by Douglas Adams and aired in September and October of 1978.

Episode 29: Which Reminded Me of Scooby-Doo

Season 4 starts with what can be better classified as a fizzle rather than a bang.

Kiyan and Dylan experience the start of season 4 with The Smugglers, written by Brian Hayles and aired in September and October of 1966.
