Episode 001 – The American Astronaut / Workin’ Man Noise Unit
Dear Cory McAbee,
We sincerely apologize for this – we’re very complimentary of The American Astronaut (and Stingray Sam and The Billy Nayer Show) here, but good lord, hope you can wade through the other stuff.
Dear Workin’ Man Noise Unit,
We sincerely apologize for this – we get to you eventually. You guys rock.
Dear everybody else,
…Welcome, I guess. Hey, did you ever want to know what the writers of Critical Masses sounded like? No? Well too bad. Here’s Episode 001 of the Critical Masses Podcast, grating on your earholes since March of ’13. Join us for some semi-telligent (and –telligible) conversation. Listen as we mispronounce our way through a discussion about the awesome movie The American Astronaut, written and directed by and starring Cory McAbee and the awesome EPs, Drinkin Stella to Make Music to Drink Stella To and Serious Power Hour, by Workin’ Man Noise Unit. (There’s no bass, duh.) Evan’s angry about a lot of stuff, and Matt gets quite confessional about Dashboard Confessional. We find that Ryan essentially wrote Death Cab for Cutie’s first album. Stella Artois has a confusing nature, and there’s an unfortunate instance of unintended genitalia. Mainly it’s a documentation of one man’s descent into Jameson-fueled drunkenness. It’s sad, but it’s impossible to turn from.
But if you couldn’t guess, the real question is: who killed Laura Palmer? You won’t find out here, though. So … OK.
Hey, have fun, right?
