A cross-generational guide to the culture that made us, by Sydnee McElroy, Teylor Smirl, and Rileigh Smirl. New episodes every Thursday.
Still Buffering: "Donnie Darko" (2001)
Well, it's a classic movie from Teylor's youth that is worthy of discussion, but that doesn't mean Rileigh is happy about its leading man. It's that time of year where we all join together to sing badly about Jake Gyllenhaal, but I guess for this week we'll talk about a good movie of his.
Still Buffering: New Kids on the Block
Boy bands were all the rage back in the 90s, mostly the classics like NSYNC and the Backstreet Boys, but Sydnee somehow had a boy band obsession from before she was probably even old enough to be listening to music: the New Kids on the Block. Syd loved everything from their fashion and personalities, to of course, their catchy hooks and beats, so let's dive in!
Still Buffering: "Pitch Perfect"
This movie defined an entire generation of young theatre tweens, including our very own Rileigh. A literal cup had such a grasp on Rilo and all of her friends that it was her only personality trait for a solid half decade, so we have to see what it's all about. Also acapella.
Still Buffering: Bif Naked
Once again, we're taking a journey back to the era of "angry girl" rock, where the songs were great and the outfits were just so, so 90s. Come join us!
Still Buffering: "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"
Rounding out our spooky season spectacular here on Still Buff is a classic from Sydnee and Teylor's youth that has crossed over into the new generation of Netflix reboots: it's "Are You Afraid of the Dark?" We have lots of thoughts on the various spooky stories and also the tiny leather bag of coffee creamer (?) so let's get into it before spooky season ends!
Still Buffering: "Hocus Pocus" (1993)
To continue our spooky season series, we're diving back into a Halloween classic, "Hocus Pocus!" Even though it came out a whole 7 years before Rileigh was ever born, it was still just as important in her youth as it was for her sibs, so let's get spooky and get into it.
Great to hear the different thoughts of the different aged people in this show and their experiences of popular media from their youth!
This is amazing BUT
THIS IS AMAZING I AM ONLY A KID AND IT IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE PODCASTS
Funny, honest and relatable
Great podcast by the Smirl sisters. Listen from the UK and I love it. Can relate to a bit of all of the sisters. Very nostalgic
