Episode 52: Black Dynamite (2009)
Joined this week by Alex Robertson AKA DJ Velvet Thunder of The Box Hoxton for the World's best rampage film: Black Dynamite (2009). Michael Jai White and Byron Minns' parody of a 70's Blaxploitation film is one of the most stunning pieces of comedy that I've ever seen. Among that rare breed of work that is so steeped in humor, blanketing everything from the sets, to the costumes, dialogue, music and even the filmmaking itself, BD left us speechless*. *We talked quite easily for 30 minutes.

Episode 51: Bull Durham (1988)
It's baseball week at Drink For... so I knew that I had to sit down with Devlin Clemons, the most passionate baseball fan / wrestler / podcaster there is. One third of the Know Your Cinema Podcast, Devlin was gracious enough to point out the error of my vulgar ballpark ways, teach me a little bit about landing a 16 foot suplex during a cage match and how to send your Meat up to the show. Please bring baseball back.

Episode 50: Trading Places (1983)
[AIRHORNS] The Episode 50 Special is upon us!! Joined by Zoe Anderson, Andrew "AP" Clarke, Labeja Kodua Okullu, Ian Mantgani and Dr. George Crosthwait, aka my family, this is an experience that I'll treasure for the rest of my life. Thanks to everyone who's helped me along the way, I can't believe that Drink For… is a year old.

Episode 49: 48 Hrs. (1982)
Drink For…'s infatuation with Eddie Murphy continues this week with his first ever big-screen role in Walter Hill's 48 HRS. (1982). Joined by good friends Ian Mantgani and Labeja Kodua Okullu, the missed opportunity to have made this my 48th episode will haunt me to my death. Links to the Breonna Taylor GoFundMe, Scaffolded Anti-Racism Resources and Black Lives Matters carrd can be found at drinkforpodcast.com.

Episode 48: Beverly Hills Cop (1984)
This week, Labeja Kodua Okullu joined me in the closet of shame via his own makeshift tent of solitude. After a rough week, I wanted nothing more than to spend a couple hours drinking with a friend, and swooning over the comedic delights of Eddie Murphy. Good news: it made me feel good for a bit. Bad news: although monumental, our chat did not fix the world. Go to BlackLivesMatters.carrd.co to find an amazing list of resources that you can use to help us fix it.

Episode 47: Purple Rain (1984)
Sat down with the lovely Fox Jackson this week to talk about his musical idol Prince. After drinking for (dot dot dot) Purple Rain (1984), Fox graced me with the totems of his immense fandom, and ended up giving me a Prince education that I'll never forget. Or one that I don't have to worry about forgetting because we recorded it. That's what this is. It's a podcast.

Episode 46: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (2005)
This might be my best episode to date. Not sure what happened, or how, but if I can somehow keep this going, I'll be very proud of myself. The Hitchhiker's Guide is an all timer for me, but let's be honest, at this point in the quarantine Drink For... has become a greatest-hits compilation of my adolescence. From probability to proxies, fingerprints to filmmaking, I cover it all in just 40 mins a week.

Episode 45: Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 (2017)
In which drunk me thinks he knows about Marvel movies. Featuring an extra sneaky SMS, at least one budgetary misunderstanding and maybe the most fun rule to date, I can't think of a better way to spend a quar weekend than to get hammed up while vibing to some funky 70's jim jams. As always, proceed with a measure of caution, because I certainly didn't.

Episode 44: MacGruber (2010)
Two things: 1, this is the best movie of all time; and 2, this solo episode got way too serious, way too fast. Going into this I was quite aware of the former, the latter however (quite audibly) caught me by surprise as my drunken self decided that the only thing worth gleaning from 90 mins of spoofs and goofs was some muddled thing about how it's up to the younger generations to change the world. Yeah, I'm not sure how that's possible either, but here's the proof. Listen and be inspired (*but, like, in a self-important TED talky way. In no way does this contain real inspiration).

Episode 43: House / Hausu (1977)
Joined this week by Joshua Smith and Dr. George Crosthwait of the Japanese Avant-garde and Experimental Film Festival to discuss the late, great Nobuhiko Obayashi's HOUSE (ハウス / Hausu, 1977). Sold as the Japanese JAWS, and with a story straight from the mind of his 11 year old daughter, Chigumi, this is one of the most unique films that I've ever seen. Impossible to describe, and existing almost exclusively in the imaginations of its viewers, this horror/comedy/musical is truly something special.

Episode 42: Stephen Sondheim Double Bill
Joined this week by Kyle Turner (Paste Magazine, GQ, New York Times), for a quarantine double bill: EVENING PRIMROSE (1967) and INTO THE WOODS (2014). A huge fan of the composer/ lyricist, Kyle gently leads me through this amazing duo of musicals. The first, a television play starring Anthony Perkins as a poet who takes refuge from the world inside of a closed department store; the latter, Rob Marshall's much more well known Hollywood musical boasting a cast of stars including Emily Blunt and Meryl Streep. Join us on our intoxicated journey through these larger-than-life cultural critiques, and sing your hearts out.

Episode 41: The VelociPastor (2017)
Last week I sat down with, Jason Quinn from the Know Your Cinema Podcast to watch one of the most pleasantly surprising films covered on this podcast to date, THE VELOCIPASTOR (2017). Quickly falling in love with this 70-minute stunner, we turned the hyperbole up to 11, so that in our drunken minds, listeners would seek this out ASAP. My sober self agrees wholeheartedly.

Episode 40: Die Hard (1988)
Turns out my wife, Zoe Anderson (aka DJ Shabbee Chic from the T-One Collective), has never seen Die Hard. This is terrible news, even in these difficult times, so we corrected that glaring error with this episode that mostly just loves on Alan Rickman, muscley action men and those sweet late-80's vibes. Using her background in sound design as a means of force-educating my audience on the subtleties between sound mixing / sound editing, I think we pulled it off despite getting a lot drunk.

Tiger King Bonus Episode
A little late and a little scant on content, this bonus episode is an unfiltered look at one man's utter amazement that Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness somehow exists. And while we, in no way, deserve this level of entertainment, our gracious lords in the Netflix programming department have for whatever reason* blessed us with it. Praise be! *Money. They did it for money.

Episode 39: Last Action Hero (1993)
Meta March concludes with this action-packed piece and a couple'a guests from London. Andrew AP Clarke and Dr. George Crosthwait join me for some self isolation revelry, gratuitous action and what, as it turns out, was too much drinking. Veering slightly off topic, but always coming back round to why Arnold was/is the perfect action movie star, we has us a time.

Shaw Brothers Bonus Episode
This bonus episode will give you all the rules you need to thoroughly enjoy "any" Shaw Brothers' film. The output of this legendary studio served as the spark for my obsession with movie drinking games, and doing so alongside friends eventually turned into this thing. So without spending a month (say, the September of Shaw) detailing all my favorites, I've just come up with a standard set of rules that will surely get you through this mess that we're currently in.

Episode 38: Top Secret! (1984)
Finally, a fun one. Meta film doesn't have to be all academic or all scary. Sometimes it comes in the form of the madcap nonsense of Zucker, Abrahams and Zucker's punny films. The trio behind the similarly punctuated AIRPLANE! (1980), THE NAKED GUN: FROM THE FILES of POLICE SQUAD! (1988) and HOT SHOTS! (1991), the penchant for exclamatory titles extends far beyond into the total silliness contained within these films. And hey, if you don't want to watch Top Secret!, my rules will get you plenty tuned up while watching any of their movies.

Drink For... Ultra Dogme Virtual Film Festival
In partnership with the Ultra Dogme Virtual Film Festival's first installation, "From a Distance", I've given the world its first social distancing episode of Drink For.... In this short bit of bonus content, I've focused on Chantal Akerman's 1972 LA CHAMBRE. A self isolation masterpiece, this breezy ten-minute gem will help you feel slightly less alone as you sit in your room pondering just how weird this all is.

Episode 37: Adaptation. (2002)
The second in our Meta March series, this brisk 28 min episode provides everything from Hollywood scriptwriting basics, comfort in the ubiquitousness of self doubt, and the unique darkness of drinking alone while watching a fat Nicholas Cage. Only half as bleak as that sounds, I'm sure we can get through this if we just work together. Adaptation. specific drinking rules: We're gonna Drink for... Voice over Charlie second guessing himself Switching between story lines Charlie talking to Donald

Episode 36: The Cabin in the Woods (2011)
It's drinking, it's horror, it's everything you need for the weekend. This marks the first in a month-long series on "meta" films, because, 1: alliteration is important; and 2: I want to sound smart. As I will never succeed at the latter, it was important for me to set the very achievable standard of picking a theme that started with the same letter as the month. Life is about the small victories. And podcasting, that's about whispering into the void hoping to hear an echo.
