the DewOver | episode one: 1973

NEW PODCAST! My friend and colleague Jamie Dew invented The Dew Over a few months back, during Oscar season, wherein a panel of folk would come together and hash over the Best Picture nominees of any particular year in the Oscar’s history. We kicked things off in 1973 in an episode featuring myself, Price, and friends. It’s like Mamo! met Time Bandits, went on a date, had a pretty okay time, got to laughing about how awful A Touch of Class is, and were halfway home before they pulled the car over and decided to fuck, and then nine months later, BOOM: Dew Over. Listen here.

Mamo #345: Veronica Mamo

10 years after Serenity, what do we make of the latest fanbase-cum-motion-picture boondoggle, Veronica Mars, and its digital-download boondoggle, UltraViolet? Plus conversation about The Grand Budapest Hotel, Ghostbusters III, Star Wars VII, and more vidja game movies. Also, be careful: we speak out about Apple, which apparently carries vast cosmic karmic consequences.

Want to keep up with the inane shenanigans of Team Mamo over the course of Oscar Eve? Go to our Tumblr site for Mamo Minisodes, which will drop onto the internet somewhere between 5 and 12 times over the course of the night. (Updates via the unmonitored Mamo twitter account.) Or follow Price and myself on twitter to see what two wankers on a couch where wanking “isn’t allowed” do with their time.

On a personal note, if Rob Ford and/or Jordan Catalano win an Academy Award, I will very likely freak out.

Mamo #341: That’s A Spicy Meatball

Mamo tries to get back on belated track as the Oscar ceremony roars toward us… we give you our Oscar picks, in case you still haven’t entered your office Oscar pool; talk Guardians of the Galaxy and general awesomeness; and hold a brief memorial for the brave, beautiful Mamo 340. And then Price nearly dies. It’s great! It’s Mamo.
