Holidays are often a time we spend with family and loved ones. On this episode we feature projects created by families or loved ones in collaboration. You know like Gustav Klusis and Valentina Kulagina… sorry, I mean The Carpenters. Listen and you will be enlightened. And what is tickling our fancy this month.
During this episode we talk to film editor Tina Hirsch. Ms. Hirsch explains her role as a film editor, including how she helps create a great chase scene. Ms. Hirsch also recounts a time of “looking out windows” with Director Brian De Palma.
Come see Mystery Date, one of the films Ms. Hirsch edited, on Saturday, November 16, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Main Library, downtown.
Someone in the Popmatic crew is getting married! You’ll have to listen to find out who. [Ed. note: Unless they spoil it on the blog before this posts!] In honor of this joyous union, we discuss the best books, movies, and music all about weddings. Okay, we really just discuss movies (again). Things get surprisingly dark. We do talk about books at the end though.
There is still one more week of Hispanic Heritage Month to go! Luckily, the books, movies, and music we recommend are good all year round. What’s tickling our fancy? Cool stuff. Artober and cool stuff.
We wanted to get Karen back on the show so we decided to talk about fashion, and though the tag line says “fashionable reading” it probably should say “fashionable watching” because we mostly talk about movies. Besides, it is “Mercedes-Benz” Fashion Week. We throw in some Banned Books Week and Tickle My Fancy.
During this episode we talk to the thinking man’s action director, Andrew Davis. Davis has directed such films as The Fugitive, Holes, and Stony Island. During the interview he discusses the importance of casting, his collaboration with actor Tommy Lee Jones, and why the Chicago ‘ L’ train is important to his movies. Come see Davis’s film Stony Island on Saturday August 10th 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at the Main library downtown.
Bryan misses an episode of the Popmatic Podcast for first time ever. With grumpy librarian away, the rest of the team raids the refrigerator. They tell you about about their favorite cookbooks, food blogs, and individual recipes. Favorite local restaurants are named but you’ll have to listen for those. Is this the best episode ever? Probably.
On this episode, we’ll introduce you to the Digital Public Library of America, and a lot of other websites where you can find great stuff. There were so many sites we couldn’t fit them all in the show, but they are all listed here. Dig in.
