Mitch and Joe, A.K.A Massive Attack, are two nerds in their 40's. Each month join them for a conversation discussing what games they are playing, TV and movies they are watching, and some other strange tangents.
Welcome To My World Episode 27 - Summer Blockbusters of the 90's!
As August comes to an end, and summer closes in the Northern Hemisphere we lament the fact that we still can't head out to the cinema for the latest blockbuster releases, so once again we look back at cinema of a time passed. This time it's the time of happy pants, bucket hats and wallet chains... the 1990s.
We go over what made money, what didn't, and what we really enjoyed either way.
** Apologies for the sound quality on Mitch's mic for the first 2 minutes, but it does get better. Unfortunately the sausage fest of films we discuss really doesn't **
Episode 111 - Crisp High-Five!
We're back for another month, with Mitch still stuck inside due to the Lockdown in Victoria, and Joe due to the cold, snowy weather in Tasmania, so what better to do than game and watch the streaming services?
Joe continues more "Minecraft Dungeons", while Mitch explores within 5kms of his house on "Pokemon Go", then we watch a bit of TV with "Modern Love" on Prime Video, try episode 1 of Season 2 of "The Umbrella Academy" on Netflix, and get way more into "Jedi Temple Challenge" than two men in their late 40s should.
For movies we try the new hottness that is Neflix original "The Old Guard", as well as re-watching one of Joe's favourites, "Tuff Turf" and the "Men In Black" Series.
Welcome To My World Episode 26 - Summer Blockbusters of the 80s!
We're back with another longer than usual mini, and this month due to the return to lockdown in Melbourne and the reduction of all things entertainment worldwide due to the pandemic, we fondly look back at a time when we were allowed to go out and have fun, like going to the movies, with a retrospective on the summer blockbuster films of the 1980s.
Episode 110 - Streamers In Lockdown!
It's been a few weeks since we've caught up, so we start the show with a brief catch-up on what's been going on, including the announced return to lockdown in Melbourne, then after a very short chat about gaming we jump into all the TV and movies that are getting a run on the various streaming services, seeing as there really isn't that much else to do.
Joe really enjoyed "Hamilton" on Disney+, but doesn't really get why they made it in the first place, Mitch finishes "Ozark" and learns about Life Drawing, Joe's kids love "Titan Games" and "Floor is Lava", but can't understand why they swear so much on "Broken Skull Challenge", and cooking gets creative in "Crazy Delicious".
Then in movies Joe feels sad thinking about all the actors from "The Blues Brothers" who aren't with us anymore, gets 90's nostalgia in "Go" and "Grosse Pointe Blank", and Mitch introduces his kids to anime.
Episode 109 - Cosmic Rod!
On the show this month we discuss venturing out into the real world again now the lockdown laws are easing, as well as Joe finally finding good pizza in Launceston.
In gaming we look at "Minecraft Dungeons" and "Unravel", as well as the new iso-friendly challenges on "Pokemon Go", and then go streaming crazy with the new Netflix series "The Big Flower Fight", crazy brits in Lycra on "The Almost Impossible Gameshow", money laundering in "Ozark", and teen superheroes on the DC Streaming "Star Girl".
We then talk movies with "The Lovebirds" on Netflix, Pixar's latest "Onward" on Disney+, and Mitch not really being the target audience for "Faster Colors".
Welcome To My World Episode 25 Influential Albums (Part 2)!
This month for our Welcome to My World episode, Mitch and Joe continue to go over their 10 most influential albums, rounding out the lists with another 5 selections each.
On top of that we have a couple of honourable mentions, as well as a bit of a general discussion on how our musical tastes, and music consumption, has changed over the years too.
