Lately I've gotten sick of listening to podcasts with hosts who are so ill informed that all they're really capable of is bickering about current events and their personal lives. It makes me long for the days when commentaries took up that space in my life, with 'hosts' that you idolized and stories that were so educational and inspiring. The only reason I don't listen to them more is they're inconvenient to access. If I like a movie enough, I don't want to sit and watch it with a voiceover tacked on, it feels like a waste of film. Unless it's one of the classics where they're actually doing a mini film history lesson like Ebert's on "Citizen Kane". So, usually I will throw a t shirt over the TV and listen to them when I go to sleep. Even listening to them that way feels very archaic, "You mean I have to stay put in this room to hear a piece of audio like it's a floor model radio?" I've considered dubbing the audio so I can have it on my iphone, but it turned out to be an arduous task.
Anyways, last night I stumbled upon this guy's youtube channel after watching Gremlins 2 and wanting to hear the commentary. He not only had that, but the first one too and it turns out hundreds of others
. And he's found a creative naming system to keep them from being taken down. Thought you'd find it interesting, I know that dozens of hours of my time will be occupied there..
